First I would like to apologize for the lateness of this post. This is the third and final part of ‘My 22nd Birthday’ posts, and was the last day of my celebrating, as Saturday the 13th was my birthday.
On this day I woke up abnormally early for a weekend, as there was a lion dance performance and we all needed to get things ready. The uniforms needed a quick iron and equipment needed to be loaded into the cars. After this was done we all chilled out.
And yes, we played our new favourite game Yui-Gui-Oh! With the end score being 7 to me and 4 to Alan…Yaaay! I win!
The rest of the Yi Dao Troop turned up and my dad made everyone some yummy food and then it was off to do the Lion Dance performance for a wedding! =)
It was a beautiful venue, for a wedding.
Anyway after we finished we headed back to unload the equipment and change and then we headed to the park royal arcade, and arcades are always more fun with more people, as you verse each other, and mess around.
Then as we had a restaurant booking for 6 or 6:30 pm we headed off to a restaurant called, ‘Loving Hut’ in Edgeware.
Now I do not like saying bad things about places, I rather recommend places to go. But it was my birthday and this place sort of annoyed me a LOT!
Not only did food take ages to come out but the food was pretty greasy (The only thing I really liked was Bang-bang veggie chicken and the veggie fishcake) and according to the staff they had double-booked (The manger was not there, and later after a call was made told us in fact that they were not double-booked).
Now my mum and dad had to leave a bit early to drop off a car and said they were going to come back to eat because they were still hungry since they did no eat much due to the time it took for the food to come out, so the rest of us stayed to continue to eat as we chose the la-carte menu (The all you can eat menu).
Then the waiter comes to us and says we have to leave by 7:30 as they have another booking.
This is not only annoying because we are waiting for someone but, we are also paying over £120 and after telling them, they continuously come to the table to ask us to leave (Wish they had come to our table more often when we wanted to order food- At one point my mum had to go up and tell them what we wanted at the till. Normally the waiters would come to your table). All in all it was a shambles. We left, because we got fed up. For the price we paid we could have brought the same amount of dishes in a better restaurant for better service and better quality.
So if you want greasy vegan food that takes ages to come go to Loving Hut in Edgeware! But I do not plan on going there again! It was one of the things that upset me on my birthday!
On a brighter not after we left, the 6 of us went to ‘Baskin Robbins’ opposite for some yummy ice-cream! The guy let us try the various different flavours, and was very patient especially considering there were 6 of us. So we all brought some yummy ice-creams sat in the little ice-cream shop to eat, and we all talked and what not.
Then we eventually split ways and my mum & dad picked up me, my bro, sis, and Alan and we headed home. Where they got me a cake and sung Happy Birthday and the Rest of it!
My family and troop always know how to make me smile!
And if your feeling a bit down head to Baskin Robbins
