Make out like a bandit!

That isn't what it sounds like, you perverts. It simply means that if you want good stuff for your birthday, it helps big time if you're cute with a winsome smile.
Which, I'll have you know, I am.

The proof is in the loot.

Tons of books, including several more Nabokov, and some really cool vampire stuff - that would be two of my uncles. Marguerite Yourcenar also, as well as Sherlock Holmes. Death Comes for the Archbishop, too.
I'll be in books till Christmas!

If I go anywhere near the candy, please push me away or shoot me. I'm fat already.

Ma gave me a brassiere. Tres femmy.


Hee hee hee hee hee!
Thanks you everyone.

Getting closer, getting closer!

It's almost here! My birthday! I'll be turning six feet tall and blonde! Yay!

Fooled you, didn't I? You almost believed me. No, I'll just be officially one year older. And magically more mature, too.

I can already smell the cake, though. I hope it's strawberry.

See-toh-bei-li Dan-gow!

Actually, the correct term for strawberry is 草莓果 (tsow mui gwoh - 'grass berry fruit'). Two thick layers of cake bonded together with strawberry chunks in cream, covered in cream, with whipped cream on top. So very delicious!
That will be at home. Plus some pastries for tea the next day: 豆沙酥、老婆餅
Flaky black bean paste buns and elderly auntie (lotus seed paste) buns.

Old people like those better, and they're fun too.

All of this, please understand, is good for the complexion. Honest.

Birthday coming up this month

I'll be all of fourteen! Whoopee! Cake from double A on Stockton Street, and presents.
Clothes, of course. I need clothes.

What I really want is strumpet heels. Tall elegant spikes in blood blood red. To go with the lipstick I probably won't be getting either.

The closest I'll come to the harlot shoes will be scarlet socks. Probably just as well, I can't run in heels. And it is impossible to walk up Pacific Street wearing anything but flats.
I hope my uncles give me lots of books. They're good that way.

This is going to be a good month, I can tell.
I think I'll buy myself a can of whipped cream.
Go ahead, guess what I will do with it.
