Summer is here! Being a tropical rat, I love summer. I can head out in my T-shirt and shorts. No need to put on layers and layers of clothing. There's so many things to do in Japan in summer. Fireworks, portable shrines, festivals, food stalls, beach, surfing, SO MANY ACTIVITIES!!! Most important of all, I get to celebrate the birthdays of my two little rascals. Little Mahina and Baby Haku were both born in the month of August. For Little Mahina's birthday, we headed to her favorite place in the whole wide world. We went to Tokyo Disneyland to celebrate her turning three.
As you can see from the picture above, my daughter is super beautiful. I take about 99.9% of the credit here. I hope Wife-chan doesn't read this blog post. You're welcome Little Mahina! Also, she had a birthday sticker on. Every cast member we saw on that day wished her a happy birthday. It was brilliant. Little Mahina was smiling from ear to ear for most of the day. It made me feel all fluffy inside. Seeing my children smile is one of the most beautiful things to me. I'm sure most parents will agree. Time stops when I witness pure joy on my children's faces. At that point, Wife-chan and I wanted to make Little Mahina smile bigger, so we went hunting for a whole birthday cake. One slice will not do for Little Mahina. We were determined to find a whole birthday cake for her!
Our hunt ended up with us in the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. Apparently, this is the only place in both parks where you can find a whole birthday cake. They also have Unbirthday Cakes which perfectly fits the theme of the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. This rat thinks that it's a brilliant idea. If it's your birthday, get a cake that says, "Happy Birthday." If it's not your birthday, get a cake that says, "Happy Unbirthday." This is a win-win situation. I mean, who doesn't love cake? Now, you don't need a reason to get a cake! A great excuse to add to your waistline Ratketeers.
A whole cake at the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall costs 1,010 yen. You can get about 4 big slices from this cake. The cake tasted really good too. It was creamy and fruity. Birthday or not, I feel that it's a really nice way to celebrate a trip to Tokyo Disney. You are already in the Happiest Place on Earth. Might as well celebrate with a whole cake!
