Shrimp pork paste bread

Grandma's Birthday

My grandma's birthday was this past Tuesday. My mom told me to arrive at my grandma's at 2-3 on Sat. I rushed of the Trader Joe's and bought avocados and mochi ice cream (two of her favorite treats) and arrived at 4. I wanted to show up fashionable late (everyone is always late). When I arrived though there was nobody in sight. My grandma was shocked as much as I was. After much confusion calling my mom, who called my aunt, my grandma called my aunt, who then talked to me - we all figured it out and it was supposed to be a suprise at 5! Oops! Everyone started arriving at 5:30. We ate Costco pizza, KFC chicken, strawberries and ice cream, vietnamese pork and bread and pound cake. Everyone brought a dish. My grandma was slightly upset that she couldn't cook but she always takes too much effort in cooking and it was her birthday party. :D Above is a dish we get usually on special occassions like Thanksgiving. It's soooo dreamy. It's a shrimp and pork paste spreaded on sliced pieces of french bread and fried in oil. The pictures were from this past Thanksgiving...

hahahahaha I'm dying! That's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hilarious. :) I can't stop laughing.

Anyway, I'm sad that I missed it. :(

Oh...have you watched jon&kate plus 8? Lisa is really into it right now, and it seems really cute. Is it possible for you to record it? It's on TLC. Also, I accidentally found out who won project runway! ARGH! But I still want to watch it anyway. :D
