The one where Orchid celebrates her birthday

Hello K-popped! readers. Orchid is a year older today and here's a peek at what we did on this special day.

Rooster, we wish you were here. But then again, we wouldn't have that entry on the hilarious hip hop dance competition you went to if you were ;-).

For Orchid's birthday, we spent the day doing what most KL Lites do - go to the movies!

Movie ticket: If you want to watch a movie at RM10,
don't go to
GSC Mid Valley. It's RM12 there.

But before we went on our date with Po the Kung Fu Panda - haiyee-ah!, Orchid spotted Rain and tried to steal a kiss from him. Serious. We've got the picture to prove it.

Muacks: 'Gimme a kiss Bi, it's my birthday!'

After that little birthday smooch, we prepared ourselves for awesomeness!

Skadoosh!: It is said that his enemies would go blind
from over-exposure to pure awesomeness!

Kung Fu Panda absolutely rocks! Have you watched it yet? The flick will tickle your funny bone until you fall off your chair. Its pure awesomeness...will BLIND you. Heh heh.

We went for the English version of the movie (there's a Cantonese one for the Chinese audience as well) and when the credits started rolling - guess what? We heard Rain singing in the background!

I'm not complaining, but why did UIP (the local movie distributor) say that Rain's version of the song will only be played in the Cantonese version of the film? It's right there in the English one as well - awesome!

After the movie, we went for lunch. Nope, no Korean meal today. There was a Korean eatery called Korea Qing Zhou Restaurant right above the restaurant we went to, but we decided to go for Taiwanese food instead.

Skip it: No Korean meal for us today...

Eat it: We went for Taiwanese food. Ni hao!

Our meal at Little Taiwan, which is so non-halal (porky stuff in every dish), was surprisingly delicious.

We'd usually avoid pork, but the meat at the restaurant was prepared in so many different ways that the variety kept the flavourful dishes interesting. Here are some pics.

So hot: Spicy hot ramen (RM9.90) for the birthday girl. There is a saying
that you should eat noodles on your birthday as it signifies "long life"

Set lunch: The Spicy Hot Ramen comes in a set lunch. A glass of
thirst-quenching Jasmine Bubble Tea accompanies the dish.

Lunch for two: Taiwanese Meat Ball Rice (RM22.90), a set lunch for
two persons that comes with (clockwise from top) meatball soup,
bean sprouts, rice, meatballs and tofu.

More noodles: Meatball noodles (RM9.90) - meatballs,
noodles and sauce

Dessert: Pumpkin cake (RM3.40) - deep fried, crunchy on the outside,
gooey pumpkin on the inside. Yummy!

Lastly, 우리 어깃씨, 생일 축하합니다. 사랑해요!

Happy birthday to you too, Orchid! I did happen to watch Kung Fu Panda yesterday and I totally agree; it was absolutely AWESOME! Although during the credits, I did not hear Rain's version of the song. I'm thinking his singing is in all of the versions for the Asian audience?

Orchid said...

@giddygirl108 Ya perhaps you are right. =) Anyway i was happy to hear Rain's voice at the end. It made my day.
