Part 2 of our celebration was dinner with my colleagues who celebrated it with us, since Scout's fifth month fell on a weekend, by having a potluck. My Malaysian-Chinese-Australian colleague, who's been one of Scout's supporters long before he came about, hosted the dinner and made authentic Laksa and some form of humba (well, the host couldn't give me a name for it, but that's the closest dish that I could think of). We brought some of the birthday noodles and two of my favorite cakes, Black Velvet and Chocolate Mousse from Mary Grace.
It was a fun day for the three of us and I'm really grateful for having colleagues like mine for celebrating the event with us.
Happy fifth, Scout!
