Gill’s bday @ Arirang

I know I haven’t been blogging much recently, but honestly, it’s been a struggle to keep my brain working and eyes open after working hours in the night.

With all the last minute assignment cramming and the infuriating situation at work, it was nice to have some time out to celebrate a very special and lovely friend.

Since it was Gillian’s birthday celebration, the birthday girl got to choose her lunch venue. Since she had a hankering for Korean food, we headed to Arirang in the city. It’s my first time eating at Arirang even though this Korean restaurant has been around for ages.

To tell the truth, Korean might be my least favourite Asian cuisine, especially Korean bbq, I hate the smokiness and the greasiness of the whole event. I especially dislike coming out of the restaurant smelling like a charcoal pit. But.. Arirang’s grill pit was surprisingly good, no smokiness, no greasiness, it was all so clean and well ventilated, I was pleasantly surprised.

In comparison to popular Korean places such as Took Be Gi, Arirang’s prices are on the steeper side. But their portions are generous and generally pretty tasty.

Never mind the food, the birthday cake is always the highlight of any birthday celebration. Gill’s cake looked very pretty and festive, it was a chestnut cake from Regent’s, quite a special flavour I thought.

Finally pictures of the happy birthday girl. I thought her birthday celebration was exactly what all birthday gatherings should be about, the special person of the day, celebrating her general loveliness and her special day. I wish we got together with Gill more often, she’s such a nice friend and so fun to be around with (Gill are you reading this?)

Happy birthday Gilly! I’ve really enjoyed  celebrating your birthday with you for the past 4 years, here’s to more fantastic birthdays to come and wonderful years of friendship ahead 🙂
