On friday, it was CT's birthday. We did not celebrate alone but on the actual day, we just went over to his mum's place for a home cooked meal and his sister bought a cake for him. I guess for us, everyday is a celebration to be together and so, during birthdays like these, we just leave it to our families to celebrate with us.
On Saturday, it was my family's turn to celebrate for CT. Went to Changi Airport for lunch with my whole family including my bro's family. I had lots of fun- yummy food and good company from sittinbg beside my niece, Janine.
We ordered lots of food which we seldom order in Crystal Jade. Usually in Crystal Jade, we would order porridge and tim sum. But today, we ordered lots of ala-carte dishes like Peking Duck, Spinach with fresh big prawns, clay pot seafood dou fu, baked pork ribs with sweet and sour sauce which was the best pork ribs I have eaten..so juicy and crispy on outside, and ee fu duck noodles. We also ordered tim sum- char siew bao and chicken feet! Yumm...
After lunch, we let Janine walk around and she kept wandering off. She could walk quite fast already and it was so fun seeing her catching up with us because of her baby steps. Ct and I even held her tiny hands, each on one side and swung her to and fro. She was smiling and laughing so happily...
Today, it was Janine's one year old birthday. Went to my bro's condo at Bukit Timah for the celebration. He invited over 100 guests and I was quite overwhelmed by the crowd with my preg condition as well as the persisting headache I have been having for the past 2 days, which kept me up all night.
I went to his place early right after my church service which was near his house and CT helped by blowing the balloons while I assisted by tying them.
Janine was asleep then and when she woke up, she looked so groggy and dazed. How cute..
Janine do enjoy at times walking around. Check out her lovely red dress and cute white shoes..
The food was nice as I ate mainly popiah and kueh pai tee-which we had to make ourselves. My brother ordered the rest of the food from our trustee catherer which we have worked with it for many years.
The birthday cake was huge, ordered from my Aunt whom we can all trust to buy cakes as she works in Hyatt and the cakes she always get for our birthday celebrations is just so yummy and unique. Definitely expensive too...
After the birthday party, I da bao left overs for my dinner as there was quite a lot of leftovers. Esther even had to take the whole tray of mee goreng and donate to the moral home for the aged in Bedok cos there was one tray left untouched.
I didnt have a great time as I thought I would have because of my nagging headache. Couldnt even entertain the guests much...I just wanted to rest. Anyway, glad to be home after the party to rest.
