I still remember the birthday party that I had when I’m 25. I came back to my country after 3 years studying master degree in Australia. When I arrived at the airport, I visualised that there would be lots of people welcoming me so I rushed to home . All of my best friends and families were at home and surprised me with flowers and presents. That night, my mom cooked lots of my favorite food like pizza, mushroom risotto. It was a long time since I ate traditional food so I tucked in every dish happily. I had this food in Australia but the taste wasn’t as tasty as in my hometown. The flavour, the smell evoked memories that I had before. That was the best meal in my life as everything was mouth-watering and fresh. The meal is so special to me as it is a reunion after a long time and I still feel touching whenever I think about it. I was over the moon because of their affection for me. It was a night to remember as we chatted about many things and took lots of photos to capture that moment. The memory still brings tears to my eyes and it’s the best meal in my life.
