A Happy Happy Day

Her happy day started the night before. She went to BIL's house (just opposite) for a sleepover. PIL were here for the weekend and they stayed at BIL's (sometimes at our place). She likes to go for a sleepover whenever Mah Mah and Ye Ye are here.

Next morning, they went 'yum cha'. Her definition of 'yum cha' is go out for breakfast. It doesn't matter what she eats. :-D Then back to BIL's house for games (Wii and PS3) with CH. We had late lunch at home and the kids only napped at 4+.

I gave XY the upper hand in choosing her birthday cake. Either a cake with Dora's picture or jelly cake. She chose the latter and also decided on the design (from JellyCakeHouse.com). While the kids were napping, I baked blueberry muffins (again? hahaha) and prepared the alphabet sticks. As the birthday cake is a jelly cake, I decided to make some "conventional cake". Then I realised I don't have enough toothpicks. Sms-ed SIL and she gave me the idea of using satay sticks. So when hubby came back from buying food and collecting cake, I walloped 2 sticks of satay for recycling purpose. ;-)


We had a simple celebration at home with Domino's pizzas and BBQ Chickstix, satays, hokkien mee (thick noodles with black sauce) and home-cooked fried bihun. The kids had their fried bihun earlier so while the adults were enjoying our feast, the kids ate their popcorns (bought from TGV).

~ her presents : Gap jacket from Sen Sen and
bracelet from Mah Mah (apart from angpow) ~

She asked how come PaPa and Mommy didn't give her any presents. We told her the celebration IS her present. hehehe Actually PaPa is planning to get her an analogue watch (to "accelerate" her learning in telling time). She also received angpows from Po Po, Mai Po and Chiu Mu when we were back in Penang the week before. Also, thank you all for your birthday wishes. She's so blessed to be loved by so many people.

Olive, jelly cakes r something new to me too. But now vy 'heng', so I decided to give it a try. The whole thing is jelly. So if u're 'sien' with cakes, jelly is a a good chg.

Mich, there r pandan or chocolate flavour (as far as I know).
