then it was di'er's birthday at the vietnamese restaurant near rikkyo.
the food is expensive and the quantity is miserable! just sitting there costs 500yen per person. yikes. and we all ended up paying about 2000yen per person. SO MUCH WORSE than yamachan. so we all swore that it is the first and last time we'll ever go there.
the best part is probably the surprise cake. the room was suddenly dimmed and the waiters emerged with the cake and everybody in the room started singing. it was pretty lovely. they even helped take a group photo of us and gave di'er the polaroid picture.
