All the children were asked to sit down on the floor, facing the table. But they kept getting closer and closer to 'admire' the cake. The teacher had to warn them if they don't sit down properly, they cannot join the party. But after awhile, they're back near the table again. They were attracted to the cake like bees attracted to honey. hahaha
After the candles were lighted, the teacher switched on the birthday tune and the kids sang in English and Mandarin. XY was smiling shyly, probably coz this is the first time so many people sang a birthday song for her. Then she blew the candles and cut the cake (once). Her teacher took over and cut the cake. XY helped to distribute them to all the teachers.

Then Kakak and didi came upstairs to the classroom. Another teacher had given didi some jelly so he was holding and playing with them (still unopened). After the kids have finished their cakes, XY distributed the party packs to them. They were asked to keep it in their bag as they were going to play some games. I left then.
PIL (from Johor) arrived in the evening. We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant nearby, together with SIL and CH. BIL couldn't make it coz he was still in a business meeting. We booked a room with karaoke (the 3 kids kept hogging the mic) and ordered the set meal. The serving was too much for 7 adults (including the maids). We forgot to tell them to make the fried rice halal. (And they weren't tactful enough to ask us... hmmphh!) So we packed home some of the food that we couldn't finish. After the meal, she had another round of sing-song, candle blowing and cake cutting.

As for presents, she got a mini white board from kindy. So nice of them to give her a present. I bought her some hair accessories and a bracelet. Sen Sen bought her clothes and a necklace. Mah Mah gave her a blouse.
