Birthdays of people are celebrated usually with birthday gifts, cakes, a birthday party, or a rite of passage.
Birthday celebrations are almost always the same—with the usual birthday cake placed in front of you while you stand awkwardly, waiting for your friends and family to finish singing the birthday song.
While there is no way that you can change the birthday song, there are definitely ways to make your birthday special. Instead of getting the conventional cake for your birthday celebration every single year, here are 9 alternative birthday ‘cakes’ that will make your next celebration extra special.

Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore’s gorgeous all-day dining restaurant J65 is an ultimate gourmet paradise if you are keen on mainly local fare. Its wholesome Sunday Champagne brunch has left an impeccable impression and we are now equally enthralled by their latest launch of regional hawker-themed dinner buffets.
J65 is fronted by Executive Chef Frederick Kho, a Malaysian native cook who specialises in homestyle Nonya, Peranakan and Straits dishes. Along with his talented kitchen crew, patrons can watch the A-team in action at the spacious open kitchen. Think tantalising local delights such as satays, kong bak pau, homemade popiahs, Penang hokkien mee and the list goes on.
From now till Tuesday, 31 May 2016, quote “ladyironchef” to enjoy a scrumptious dinner buffet at only S$35++* per person (usual price from S$45++ to S$55++). Additionally, for those of you who celebrate your birthday at J65, you will receive a complimentary buffet plus a free three-tier stand of cupcakes and an over-the-top chocolate milkshake. Stop pinching yourself, the deal is real and it is valid from now till the end of 2016.
Tucked away in a little corner in Telok Blangah is what used to be a retreat bungalow owned by the Yemeni Alkaff family. Alkaff Mansion Ristorante provides a nice respite from the fast paced city areas in Singapore, perching on top of Telok Blangah Hill (used to be known as Washington Hill).
