aryanna just turned 13, but don't dare tell her so as she believes that she'll be 12 forever. that's just fine by tom and i. lol
happy birthday, sweetheart!
aryanna had a mini b-day celebration at her school. since her birthday falls on the same day as the 'international sushi day' (made-up internet holiday), she brought assorted sushi, sashimi, chocolate caramel cake and spaghetti for her classmates and teachers.
our family had a birthday dinner at basix restaurant in dusit hotel.
aryanna decided that she was going to eat all her favorite food because it's her day! let's check out what her faves are...
sushi, roast pork, hard roll and cheese. looks promising...
roast beef with gravy, ementhal cheese (huh) and soft roll. soft rolls are her favorite kind of bread, but since it's not the healthiest thing in the world, she rarely eats it.
observe the concentration.
ichigo: proper buttering of the soft roll is essential as to not ruin the flavor vectors.
assorted vegetarian dimsum
aryanna told us not to buy her gifts anymore because according to her, we already got her a lot of stuff from our last trip to new york. awww.. she's such a great kid!
of course, tom and i couldn't help it and the surprise gifts were all worth it!
aryanna cried when we surprised her with gifts. she melted our hearts.
her current favorite manga books—kitchen princess volumes 2-9. sorry sweetheart, we forgot to buy no. 10.
bagful of assorted candies, colored pens and bubbles!
i found a campy pink superman bubbles for aryanna and she loved it! check out mr. roboto, waiting with anticipation for his turn. lol
cute glittery bow band! i love this hairband she bought at a bazaar, it's so festive!
sparkle! sparkle! keeping within the festive theme, ichigo wore silver sequins chucks on her b-day.
i think our driver had a hard time driving as aryanna kept on flashing the camera in the car. so cute though! notice mr. roboto's "bond" look. hahaha...
we all went nuts with the camera that night. tom took this photo while he was inside the elevator. i looked like a gnome!
if our building superintendent knew half of the crazy things that ichigo and mr. roboto did inside the elevator, he would have evicted us years ago! this is ichigo attempting to press the emergency button. don't you dare! she didn't.
ichigo: where are my gifts? emphasis on the "s".
on ichigo: eley kishimoto gray striped top, dollhouse gray shorts, silver sequins chucks, levi's white watch and sparkly bow band (bazaar find.)
