Caylee's First Birthday

AT LAST I got Caylee's brithday shots uploaded.

We went to Backofen @ Taylor's Lakeside campus in Sunway for her birthday. The restaurant was kinda quiet given it was a Saturday. Try going during the weekday lunch and chances are it would be hard to find a place to sit. But with no classes on Saturday, this place is EXCELLENT for a celebration.

A little bit about the place. If you have never been, you really have to go one Saturday. We were told that the campus was mainly for Taylor's Hospitality Courses. There is a small (very small) hotel in Broadwalk (which is the building where Backofen is) for the student's parents to spend the night. And surrounding the lake is the campus and many restaurants. Landscaping there is also VERY NICE. Christopher had a grand time running around given that the weather was not that warm.

A pic of the restaurant.

And another pic of the birthday girl and her 'made to order' cake.

I wanted lemon cheese cake for her birthday but Backofen didn't have it. So, they custom made it for me. The cheese was really cheese, unlike those from Secret Recipie. So for the first time Christopher ate his portion of the cake. And since cheese doesn't rise, the baker added a layer of sponge cake in between to make up the height. So, you can imagine the quality of the cake.

Caylee had a good time. She wore shoes for the first time and was encouraged to walk a bit outside. She can walk but her fear is getting the better of her. She rather prefered in the end to be carried. She ate bread while the rest of us had our meal. She loves her bread, thank God. The lamb is WONDERFUL here and so are majority of the dishes. So, we all had a really good lunch.

All in all, it was a quiet family lunch in a great place with great food and a good walk around after that.

Happy Birthday darling girl. Mummy wishes you will shine like an angel and touch the lives of everyone with God's love in you.
