Recently I attended a birthday dinner where we celebrated 8 people’s birthdays – including my own! Semester 2 recently wrapped up and because my uni friends and I were busy with studying in November and some are going on holidays over the Summer, we decided to have a huge dinner party combining the birthdays of people in November and December.
We had about 30 people rsvp to the event so we spent a few hours eating dinner at a Japanese restaurant and the food was delicious This place is known for being cheap and tasty which is a plus for students like us! I shared 4 dishes with 3 other friends and had things like grilled squid and okonomiyaki. I didn’t have time to take photos of everything we ate since we had to leave by a certain time (and we were hungry).
After that we went to get some desserts at Azuma, a Japanese patisserie store, and headed off to a park to eat them It’s one of my favourite cafes to eat at, they have a range of delicious treats to buy. I think I’ve posted previously about some of their cakes :glee8 This time I chose to get mixed green tea yoghurt with oreos.
And these are the gifts that I’ve received from my lovely friends so far! My birthday is actually on the 2nd of Dec, so I’ll be having more birthday posts later on since I’ve still got to celebrate it with 2 more groups of people lol.
I was actually really surprised that I got a lot of presents. Personally I don’t really mind whether I get presents from friends or not, as long as I have fun celebrating my birthday with someone, usually that’s good enough for me
As you can see, all my gifts are based on my hobbies and likes lol.
I was really excited to get Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask since it’s been a while since I’ve gotten a new game for my 3DS and I’m a fan of the series. Games in Australia are really expensive – 3DS games are usually around $68, depending on the game developer. I also plan to get 2 more 3DS games soon, so my friends helping me buy this really helped me
Tiger & Bunny is my favourite anime series and Kotetsu is my favourite character so some of my friends got me merchandise relating to it I usually don’t buy anime merchandise so I’m grateful to have these :bow2 Below is a Kotetsu figurine which changeable parts, Master Grade Figurerise Wild Tiger and Tiger & Bunny gag manga book. With the MG figurerise, I’ll have to build it myself like a gundam model (do you know about those?), so I’m making it my Summer project to complete it!
This is what the parts look like in the box, and what it looks like completed. Good luck mode is like his finishing move
Another friend got me these cute mini Korean cosmetic products I always love the packaging on Korean products, they usually always look cute and appealing. I got this mini fragrance stick, lip essence and hand cream :music
I also got this mini alpaca pirate keyring…
and this super fluffy alpaca!
I guess if you haven’t noticed, I’ve had an obsession with alpacas for a while now, but this year it really hit off because I had friends who were able to get my Arpakasso alpaca items I think they’re just so cute!
