A good friend was celebrating her 36th birthday, and she wanted it to be special. So we had plans, and she had no idea what was about to happen.

Good we found this place, Sridan in Shangri La Hotel West Bay. It was Thursday night, continental buffet for 139QR per pax exclusive of drinks was the theme.

I was personally delighted because sushi was served in the house. Of course aside from Japanese, there were other cuisines on display, Arabic, Mediterranean, Asian, Indian, and assorted desserts.

Chit chat with amazing colleagues. At the almost end of our course, complimentary cake was brought to the celebrant and we all sang Happy Birthday. She got surprised and that was the aim. A for effort for all of us. Thanks to the supervisor of the evening who stayed with us. Great service. It was a lovely evening. And the fun went on.
