Awwww...my niece Alexandra or Am-Am as we call her in the family turned 13 on June 8, 2010. OMG she's a teenager Noooo! But I shouldn't worry because she's a good girl. She does ballet and sings at her school choir. At her age, she's very responsible and we can already rely on her for many things like taking care of her 2 year old brother Mo-Mo. She knows how to bathe him, change his poo poo stinky diaper and all that baby stuff. Pretty awesome huh? Tell me one teenager you know that can do all those things. I bet none!
For her birthday, her mom asked her what she wanted. All she requested was unlimited Shrimp Tempura and Cheesecake! Wow, that's it? What an easy request. She loves Japanese food and Shrimp Tempura is one of her favs, so wish granted! My cousin bought boxes of frozen Shrimp Tempura and Cheesecake at Ralphs (Grocery store). If you must know Ralphs makes really good Cheesecake. I don't know why but they just do.
My cousin fried all the Shrimp Tempura. Omg it was a lot!!!! It was more than enough for everyone. Yummmmmm...........
They also bought Shrimp Tempura Rolls at their local sushi joint. Yeah more tempura.
They also got several huge cups of Vegetable Udon soup. I didn't get to taste this one.
Am-Am's plate ^_^
My Tita Abeng made this fruit punch with apples and pears. It was a mix of Orange and Mango juice with chopped apples and pears. It was really yummy and refreshing.
Ralph's Cheesecake. It was simple yet delicious.
My family went Cherry picking the other day. I thought I post the Cherry pic. They still need to ripe some more.
Overall, it was a fun birthday. I love you my Am-Am. I hope you stay the sweet and loving girl that you are. You're ate Beck-beck (that's me) is always here for you ^_^. Kisses!
Here is a short video I put together on her bday. Enjoy! (oh and watch my family go crazy for the Lakers lol)
Thanks for stopping by!
