I took the day off work for Hien's 27th birthday, Wednesday, July 8th, and we spent the day together. I gave Hien a new MacBook Pro for her birthday, which she is learning how to use. She has never owned her own computer before, and I took the opportunity to install some software to help her learn English. ;-)
For dinner, Hien made crab, snails, and kang kong, which is a leafy vegetable that is quite popular here in Singapore and also in Vietnam. We got Sri Lankan roe crab at $24 SGD per kilogram, which is an awesome price for that kind of crab. It was REALLY good! She made it with a spicy tamarind sauce. I made her a chocolate birthday cake with homemade vanilla frosting. Sorry we don't have photos of us both, but someone has to hold the camera!
Here's some photos and video:

Mmmm... smells good!
