So last week my big sister, Ama turned 21! We went out for a meal at Pizza Express on her actual birthday with a small but intimate group of friends which has been a long standing tradition in our family since I don't even know when.
I have a fond memory of a birthday as a child spent at Pizza Express where I had a raspberry ripple birthday ice cream with a candle in it instead of a cake. For my birthday last year my sister reenacted this with a vanilla ice cream at Zizzi's. On this occasion I had the Da Morire pizza which was incredible and considering I don't tend to eat/like pizza it was definitely up there with one of the best I've had.
Considering most of the group were recovering from hangovers or heading to work later on the birthday meal was quite tame, however that weekend was when the real fun started and we all headed out to Vodka Rev ridiculously early (7pm!!) for her masquerade themed night out.
