The full month party photos lost and found
The Photos I started out writing this post to “fill in the blank” before I start on Yvie’s eventful 1st birthday post. I mean, who skips the full month celebration and then goes straight to writing about the 1st birthday? Doesn’t make sense leh. Cannot cannot! I wrote about the venue, the food, the cakes, the balloons and other frivolous stuff. Then I realized I lost/accidentally deleted/never even took photos with some very important people at the party and I freaked out. At 3am. I searched my old laptop, old mobile and still couldn’t find them. As a last resort, I PMed some folks in hopes they haven’t deleted these…
A very overdue post on Xan’s birthday party in school…last year
I meant for this post to be out LAST YEAR but hey, better late than never right? ____ Me: What would you like for your birthday, Xan? Xan: Mmm… I dunno. Me: How about the cake? You want a proper cake like your cousin’s or several cupcakes laid out together? Xan: Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Me: Okkkk… What kind? How do you want them to look like? Xan: I want it to be a surprise! Don’t tell me ok? I want a surprise!! *excited giggles* And so the birthday party prep began. Have I told you this little fella doesn’t like cakes? He likes to taste them, buy them, distribute them but he’ll never finish eating…
Project Birthday Cake was a Success!
A few weeks ago, I wrote about my attempt to make Xan a crazyÂ birthday cakeÂ but wasn’t successful. Between the layered steam cake and this final cake, I had tried making a banana bread (looks damn nice but taste wise failed miserably) and a jelly cheesecake. The cheesecake was a success but of course we realize later Xan hates cheesecake. Wah lau… Neh mind! I go research some more ideas lor. After a few nights of research, finally settled for a Kit Kat Cake. Ah this one, so simple and so fail proof. If I can make it, SO CAN YOU! Talk about risky, I made it the night before his…
Happy birthday old boy!
Dear Ah Lao, Today is your birthday and I need to come clean … *whisper* I did not get you a present. I can just hear you guys gasping and exclaiming. “WHAT??? No present?? Wah lau!” Eh, you all don’t lydat leh. Don’t judge me leh… *sob* For a guy who has everything, the last thing you need is another long sleeve shirt or bag. Your wardrobe very full ler lah. I’m not very creative in the gift giving department. The Triton is little out of my budget at the moment, honey. You just wait ohkay? You wait long long ok? *roll eyes* I know the last few weeks haven’t…
Wordless Wednesday: Money can’t buy time with family
My favourite kind of birthdays are the ones spent with family. Having everyone together at the same place and at time is so rare nowadays. Money can’t buy time with family. I am very grateful and very happy to have most of my folks together for a simple meal at my mum’s last night . Wheee! Linking up with:
Happy Birthday Mummy!
Today is Mummy’s birthday. Let’s just say she’s forever 36. That’s how old she was when she had me. The best thing that had ever happened to her. Mwahahah! Of the 3 of sisters, I was the naughtiest, the loudest and now the fattest. I set Mummy’s heart racing for all the wrong reasons. I mean come on, when the cane comes flying your way, of course you RUN and run fast! It’s the most logical thing to do mah. I wasn’t going to stay put like my sisters used to when they were my age. Siao! When my sisters were busy getting As and mugging for exams, I was…
