Birthday cakes are overrated and pricy, don’t you think so? A group of friends decided to switch things up by throwing an unconventional birthday celebration for their friend.

Facebook user Yumiko Chin recently uploaded a series of photos of the gathering. In celebration of her friend (Emily Yap)’s 20th birthday, the gang of 6 ordered 20 pieces of roti canai as her birthday cake.

The get-together took place at a mamak place called Restoran Syed Abu, located at Damansara Jaya. After stacking the 20 roti canai together, they even managed to add 2 birthday candles on top of the “cake”. Can’t have a cake without some candles right?

Shortly after lighting up the candles, Chin and her friends sang the birthday song in 2 languages – 1 in English and another in Mandarin – before Yap made her wish and blew out each candle. The group of friends later posed for a wefie.

We’ve seen pizza cakes, Nasi Lemak cakes, and now roti canai cake. What’s next?
