Chef LuLu (Part 10) Final Post

December 18

I turned 36! Coulda’ sworn I was turning 37 (I’m bad at math lol) but after a certain point, does it really matter?

Aside from our usual go-to Birthday Cake from Cake’d my favorite cousin also sent over a cute little Cake! May surprised me with a Unicorn Brush Set and some Face Masks with a beautiful Birthday Card using our special language which we created (we had a lot of free time as kids lol). Abrar got me a gorgeous bouquet of Red Roses with a Gift Card for an at-home service (Mani-Pedi). The list goes on and on.

My favorite gift was from my younger brother and his wife though (shown in the photo above) which was a rather large basket filled with Baking Tools (everything from a Rolling Pin to a Brownie Pan and much much more)!

I was quite touched by everyone’s kindness! They didn’t have to get me anything but they did and it was just so thoughtful and sweet! ♥

Mera made me promise not to have lunch, because she was bringing over “The best seafood you’ve ever tasted in your entire life!”

I however was already used to her exaggerations, so I knew to keep my expectations low.

After I’d ignored Mera’s phone calls one too many times, she’d called up another one of her friends and made plans to go walking in Shaheed Park. After the walk, her friend had taken Mera to Lobster Shack for the first time.

Since Mera had enjoyed the food so much, she had to have it everyday, until she got sick of it (her MO). That’s why she was bringing it over to my place that day, and would go there by herself to have lunch there, every single day (unless we had plans), up until she could no longer stand it.

Mera called me up over the phone and asked me if I prefer Mixed Seafood (Mussels + Crab + Shrimp) or just all Shrimp? I told her I was fine with whatever, but after much prodding from her, said that I prefered Mixed Seafood (I eat everything).

To which she responded, she doesn’t eat Mussels or Crabs and prefers Shrimp. So, I told her she could get whatever, again. I didn’t see the issue…


She came over with a Tub of Mixed Seafood from Lobster Shack… in the size Small (shown in the video) meant to be shared between the both of us.

So, I found these boxes of Ice cream Powder in the flavors Strawberry and Chocolate and Vanilla from the brand Dreem on taw9eel.com and decided to give them a try. No Ice Cream Machine needed!

Basically, you just mixed the Ice Cream Powder with Milk, use the Electric Mixer on high for about 5 minutes, then pop it in any Dish and store it in the freezer (for it to freeze into Ice Cream)! Super fast and simple and easy!
