Birthday Celebration For CE

This year CE had a great birthday because he had so many wishes coming his way from mommy's virtual friends. Thank you so much! As mentioned earlier, we just had a simple dinner to celebrate his birthday. I asked the maid to cook some dishes as we're having rice. I also decorated the house with some balloons (hung them underneath the lights). I did that while CE was taking his nap. So when he woke up and came downstairs, he was very happy and exclaimed "menoon!"

PaPa was going to collect the cake on his way home from work. So I asked him to buy some party packs and balloons coz there weren't any extra balloons for the kids to play. At first I thought the feathery hairband with antennae weren't very appropriate for boys but they sure look cute wearing them. And they actually like to put them on.


Dinner was mainly the adults' affair as the birthday boy had his bland dinner earlier. I wanted to make fried popiah but my popiah skin cannot be used anymore (have dried up in the freezer). So I checked out Cooking Momster's Kitchen and found the recipe for jiu hu char. I even managed to confirm a few things with her regarding the recipe on MSN chat. Thanks Sue!

~ from top : jiu hu char, steamed prawns, fried fish with sweet
and sour sauce, teriyaki chicken (bought) & stir-fried spinach ~

After dinner, the adults had coffee and chatted while the kids put up a mini performance. XY and CH can sing quite a number of nursery rhymes. But when CE had the mic, all he said was "dou dou". And I don't know what that means. hahaha

Next up was the cake-cutting ceremony. Needless to say, it was a Mickey Mouse cake (lychee sponge cake). In fact, he was at the cake shop when we chose the design. He was very excited when he saw photos of cakes with Mickey or Minnie on them. When we sang the birthday song or asked him to pose for pictures, all he wanted to do was grab the cake. The birthday boy got to eat a fair share of his cake (almost a small piece, which he normally would only get to try a mouthful. I'm skeptical about him trying new food due to his allergy). He kept asking for more.


He opened his present (his one and only present) after the guests have left. As usual, jie jie was very eager to help. Had to stop her from ripping up the present alone. It was a Bob the Builder lego set. Thank you sen sen and chik chik for the wonderful gift. Both jie jie and didi love to play with it very much.

Chin Nee, yup, that's Han. So happen they wore the same t-shirt. It wasn't pre-planned.

Paik Ling, looked good, but taste wise, so-so oni.

Jac, Kakak's cooking is so-so oni. That's y I chose the dishes that won't go wrong - steam, fried. N need to supervise her since got guests.

Shireen, hope he won't kill me when he c this pic many many yrs later.
