Joy, Dad, Hui-Ling and I all will celebrate our birthdays on this trip. Mine was first, Jan 26. Dad was next, Feb 2. Joy is Feb 7, the first day of Chinese New Year this year. The date changes on our calendar since the Chinese New Year is determined by the Lunar Calendar. HL's is on Mar 29.
We took Dad to the Outback Steakhouse here in Kaohsiung. We made reservations. I was shocked, but I guess I shouldn't have been. When we finished our meal and left at 8:30, there were 11 empty tables upstairs, out of about 14 tables. Yikes! How can they possibly stay in business. I'll be curious to see if it's still here on our next trip.
After the Outback, Hui-Jen bought a cake for Dad. We sang and had a small celebration in the apartment. Happy Birthday Dad!
