Cheers to a great friend! Wishing you the best!

This morning, Aric, Ashlyn, and I got up early and met up with Wil, Tony, Wey, Wing, and Em at Wil's. We caravanned to Wing's surprise luncheon - an Ingredient's Cooking School in Danville.

18+ friends gathered to celebrate Wing's birthday. With the help of our cooking instructor (and her 3 aides), we learned to make Hot Artichoke Spread on Toasted Baguette, Strawberry Lettuce Salad with Candied Walnuts, Butterflied Leg of Lamb, Grilled Chicken Breasts, Sour Cream Potatoes, and Mango Flan in no time. The best part was,
after all the cooking, we got to eat it for lunch! Mmmmm! It was scrumptious! It really helped that the instructor prepped everything for us, AND did all the serving and cleaning. hehehe

Emily handed out custom-made aprons (with Wing's initals) and supplied hats for all of us. It was really fun!

After lunch, we headed back to Wil and Tony's to rest up a bit. We vegged while watching "Bring It On" on DVD. I dropped Ashlyn off with my parents, got ready, and Aric and I headed out for a night on the town with our friends.

A big group of us gathered at Dragon River Restaurant on Geary in the City. Dinner was really good...a bit spicy, but I made sure to eat lots of rice (insurance to avoid from puking). hehehe

By 10pm, we drove to Club Bas in Northpoint for a wild night of clubbing. We had a private booth for our party and we all had a really good time. The drinks there were lethally strong and Aric got me some drink called, "Triptonic" that looked and tasted like Ty-D Bowl. *blech*
I danced a lot with my girlies, chatted with some old friends, and generally had an awesome time. Though I can remember most of the night, details became a bit of a blur after the first hour. hehehe

I'm happy to say that I DID NOT puke! Awww, yeah...I still gots it in me. HAHAHAHA!
