The last couple of weeks have been so hectic. I haven't had time to post anything. Being sick as well meant that I didn't really feel like writing up things. But with some more time now, I'm going to share some of the things that I've done lately.
The first thing was attending a raging party...... of a one year old. There was a jumping castle as well as swings to play on. Some of the more solid grown ups got onto the castle and swings and lets just say, the equipment was not in the same shape as it usually is.
Hien and Trung's little boy Phi was turning one. Being Phi's "uncle" Thanh, I was there early to help a bit. There wasn't much to do when I got there. Hien and Trung had all the food under control. I just helped shift a few things outside.
There was so much food that at the end of the night, I even got to take a huge plate of food away. There was Vietnamese food like Nam, a spicy pickled prawn salad, spring rolls, bei cuong, fried rice and noodles. There was also chicken nuggets and fish nuggets. My favourite was the bei cuong, but another unexpected highlight was a totally delicious goat curry made by Trung.
The birthday boy didn't cry all night, until it was time to cut his cake and blow out the candles. He started to cry like someone who had just lost the winning lotto ticket. Despite dad's best efforts, he was still wailing away. Only when mum picked him up did he slowly stop crying.
