Father's 70th Birthday

Papa turned 70 last weekend!
Earlier on, we asked him whether he wanted a big celebration (few tables at a Chinese sit-down dinner) so that he could invite his friends as well. But he opted for a cosy family dinner instead.

To make it more special, we decided to splurge on an 8 course chinese dinner.  As a birthday gift, we gave him a Samsung Galaxy Tab, since he finally installed Unifi at home last week.  Talk about an IT savvy grandpa eh?

Food was pretty decent.  The usual suspects (photos only of 4 courses) -

4 Seasons Platter

 Roast Pig and Chicken Combo

Sweet Sour Fish

My all time favourite - Braised Mushroom with Broccoli

After dinner, it was time for the birthday song and cake cutting ritual. And as usual, a photo session with the grandkids is a must! 

Getting ready for the photo session takes a little longer each year.  Let's see why :

Ok, Grandkid #1 (Elyssa) and #2 (Erin) ready. 

Wait....#3 (Su Ern) coming

And #4 (Justin) now on Ah Kong's lap

#5 (Jensen) deposited on Ah Mah's lap

#6 (Jo Ern) now here

Roll Call - #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6.  Yup, all here!  Everybody SMILE !!!!  :)

That's the best group photo I have. Not easy to get a decent photo of everyone.  Love the happy smiles on Ah Kong and Ah Mah tho!

And why was baby Su Ern crying?? Err..... I only noticed that my little Erin was at fault when I looked at my camera pictures -

"I'm bored....this is taking too long. Let me poke Baby Su Ern's eye"

"Still bored. While waiting, let me claw her face"

Oops!!  Baby samseng caught in action!  ;-)

Oh, an added advantage of having a private room (well, except for the "free" karaoke entertainment from the room next to us) was the kids had place to run and dance about :

Dancing session after dinner

Happy 70th Birthday to my beloved Papa !  :-)

Hoi!! Sue parents of baby samseng!! Got proof of eye-poking and face-clawing hahh!

Love the series of grandkids roll call pics! I didn't get many good photos that night since had to handle Su Ern.

Haiya of all the nice food, your fav is the veg?? Next time I eat all the 4-season/pig/ prawn/fish/dessert and leave you the veg.

Haha, you got funny captions, hehehehe! Yes, agree with all these small adventurous cannot sit still kids, better to get a room, so no need to eye them like a hawk.

Happy 70th birthday to your papa... He like my father, all the IT savvy grandpas! Better than me.
