Day before the birthday, we bought all the foods for the steamboat. On the day itself, early morning, ask maid to boil two big pots of soup. Then I start to clean the vegetables, prawns, meat, defrost the meat, meat balls and fish balls and marinate the mince meat for the water dumpling (sui gao) and also for the spaghetti. At the same time I also have to look after the two boys, and decorate the house. With so many kids at home, it’s hard to do the decoration. After ask the maid to put the boys to sleep I sneak out to have a quick lunch with my biz partner, Vivian nearby my house. I ask help from her, since I can’t do all the things myself and some more with two kids running around, even with a maid. I do all the work myself and ask the maid to take care my kids, rather than asking her to do, and I have to do the “touch up”.
Afternoon, the cup cakes lady sent over the cup cakes, then I start wrap the water dumplings and get the drinks and foods ready and with some more balloons decorations (since most already bursted!) Around , I quickly cook the spaghetti sauce and start fried some nuggets and chicken drummets for the kids. I tell you, it’s really not easy to prepare the foods for about 40 pax which including our family members. Lucky with the help from my younger SIL’s and hub sister, I can go for a quick shower before the guests come. Angie & her little prince Oscar was the first to come, too bad I still busy at the kitchen, hahahhahahahha, followed by Jazzmint and Sue, then my aunty Esther & family, Laundry Amah & family and last is sexy and preggy mummy Sasha and her two Cs. We had a good time chatting, yakking, eating and catching up.
This year I order cup cakes for the boys’s birthday instead of the cake, at least something different. All the kids are thrill when they see the cartoon character cup cakes. When all the kids sang “happy birthday” song, I feel so touch and got tears in my eyes. (hahahhaha this mummy so sentimental and easy to "shed" crocodile tears).
