Today I was lucky enough to be a part of a birthday celebration for two of the teacher’s assistant at the school where I am working. They decided on hotpot for the birthday dinner and then blew my mind when they decided to have cake before dinner. These are my people. Before the cake was cut one of the assistants put the largest birthday candle on top of the cake that I have ever seen. Several waitresses stopped by our room to make sure that the situation would not get out of control. I agreed. After the candle opened like a flower and started playing music I knew that even without alcohol this was going to be a great dinner.
It was a great night with friends and a memorable first time for hotpot.
