After dinner, the unpacking began in earnest. Wowee! Yay! A lot of you may be able to spot what you asked my mom to bring to me in here. Thanks Sharon, Angeling, my sis, my in laws, Dorcas, Elizabeth, Lawrence Ng etc etc.

Then on Sat, we all went downtown to SLC. Dh and I caught a movie, alone! By ourselves! Kids and grandparents went to Discovery center to play.
Then we went to this restaurant known for fresh seafood that's flown in daily, Market Street Grill. Cos I missed seafood so much. Had a great dinner. My entree was this Pacific Red Snapper Monterey (above left).
Then I had a surprise: a dessert we didn't order came, and the server even held a lighter for me to blow off! haha. she said there was no candle. because of her service, dh tipped her $20!!! We later thought aloud, if she served at 10 tables per day and they tipped her $20, then she'd earn $200 just in tips alone! wow.
That's my birthday celebration! It's a really happy day. Thanks to all those who smsed and emailed me too. Pic below taken for us by server.
After the dinner, everyone felt that we needed to take a walk to burn off the extra calories. So we went sightseeing. On hindsight, it was good we did, cos later on, my dad got sick and we couldn't go out anymore.
Then, we visited the Temple. One of the most-visited attractions in SLC. It happens to be just where dh's school is. We even took a guided tour, cos when we stepped in, many friendly Mormons (or LDS) came and volunteered their services.
It was certainly very grand, and the famous Mormon Tablenacle Choir really had a good tablenacle to rehearse in. The acoustics were demonstrated to us, by someone dropping a pin, rustling a piece of paper and by someone just talking normally while turning around 360deg. We were seated very far away from that demonstrator, but every word was still heard very clearly.
