No More Cake!
It’s not every day that I get to have my 30th birthday in China, but that is exactly what happened on Wednesday.
After work, a few my boss took me to dinner at the restaurant we typically eat at on Wednesdays. I filled up on appetizers and a meal that included enchiladas, rice, and refried beans. Afterwards, the restaurant surprised me with a piece of chocolate cake. It was a nice, filling meal.
When dinner was finished we went to my favorite bar, an English pub, for a drink. All of the girls that worked there knew about my birthday and had bought a cake for me. The whole bar sang Happy Birthday. Afterwards, the girls sang a birthday song for me in Chinese. It was a lot of fun and by the end of the evening I was completely stuffed from so much food. Meanwhile, my refrigerator contains an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen, and I have another cake coming on Friday night for my company Birthday/Going Away Party.
I think I’m going to be coming home fat and diabetic after so many sweets.
