Bunnie's Birthday Post!

Another year, another birthday.

I wanted to have a very low-key birthday this year as every single day of my life being a 26th year old was immersed in love and happiness. I simply could not ask for more as I felt so content with everything that I already have.

We attended a wonderful and intimate wedding the night before and didn't get home till late, so the other travel bunnie and I stayed up until midnight when he kissed me and wished me a happy birthday.

I was woken up by Baby George's kicks in my tummy in the morning, as if he too was wishing me a happy birthday. It was only 6am, the other travel bunnie wrapped his arm around me with his eyes closed and we cuddled in bed just like that for another two hours before he finally convinced me to get up and unwrap my birthday presents. My first gift was a DVD box set of Game of Thrones from my best friend and having never watched the series before but I can now officially declare that I'm a GoT addict. A set of elegant Wedgewood tea cups from my parents, which I've wanted for a long, long time but could never justify paying so much for. Of course, being the spoilt wifey that I am, Alain Ducasse's newly release book, J'aime London, a pair of classic Chanel earrings and a BabyLove bracelet by Cartier from the other travel bunnie to match our wedding bands.

We paid a quick visit to my in-laws so that I can get my birthday kisses and cuddles from them (yep, guilty of stealing the other travel bunnie's parents as my own), before we met up with my mum and had lunch with her at Pony.

I had visited Pony once before for dessert and I wasn't overly impressed. I didn't realise how difficult it was to find a suitable restaurant for lunch on a Sunday as a number of my preferred options don't open on Sundays.

Lunch at Pony turned out to be brilliant. The iron bark pit of the day ($26) which happened to be our favourite meat, lamb on that day was served with roast kipflers, green beans, jus. The meat was tender with a hint of smokiness and it was cooked to perfection. Mum had the wood fired salmon w' asparagus, mozzarella, endive, pine nuts and tomato foundue ($36) while I thoroughly enjoyed my Rangers Valley wagyu brisket MB7+ ($37) served with char sui, grilled pineapple, tamarind, chilli, and coriander. The well-cooked wagyu brisket was full of flavours and it simply melted in my mouth and it created a perfect balance with the crunch of a fresh side green salad ($9).

The day went fast, but it didn't finish until I got to cut my birthday cake, watch a few episodes of GoT, gotten plenty of birthday cuddles from the ones that I love, read the birthday card from my in-laws twice because I feel so lucky to have them as my in-laws and finally, snuggled up with the other travel bunnie in bed...
