Mama's Birthday - 2014

Celebrated my mum's birthday at Unique Seafood Restaurant recently.

Will let the pictures do the talking -

Star dish of the night - Signature steam fish and prawns in lemongrass soup.
Super, super yummy!!


This dish was also very good - chili crabs


I just HAD to take a photo of this - my father taking photos of food!!!  Not bad for someone who used to ask "why you'll keep taking photos of food?????" Hahahaha! 
  (sidenote -  must show papa how to take a selfie one of these days. )


We didn't know when we booked, but the room came with a karaoke system.  Whee heee!

Erin hogging the microphone
She happily screamed  wished "HAPPY BIRTHDAY AH MAH!!" multiple times into the mike, until we had to take away the mike from her  :-)


Elyssa was a bit self-conscious at first (aiyo, what happened to my fearless little girl?).  But she soon warmed up and sang the entire "Let it Go" song from the show Frozen.

Duet with daddy

Kids playing around


I baked a birthday cake for the occasion.
Luckily no major disaster this time.  Last year, the cake I made collapsed so I had to buy a last minute cake from Secret Recipe  ;-)


And ta daaa........ the real STAR of the night.... the birthday girl!!


Ah Kong and Ah Mah with their 7 grandkids

Another photo of the cake (since I made it. hehe)
2 layered light vanilla sponge cake, sandwiched with peaches and cream, and topped with strawberries, peaches and kiwi. 
Hmm... need to improve cake cutting skills also.  ;-)

 
Happy Birthday to my dear Mama!!  :-)

Self Made Toys

The girls have plenty of toys at home, but the ones I love most are their make-belief ones  :-)

Their current favourites :

1) Soldier Set

See.....comes with a drum


2) Space girl !! 
Didn't take a photo, but they sit on an empty carton box and then say "Blast Off to Outer Space"


Super love their imagination  :-)
