HAPPY 24TH BIRTHDAY BABY!
Hehe.. Just minutes before 12am, managed to post in this entry..
Was busy the past week making chocolates and trying to bake a birthday cake for baby.. Black Forest to be exact.. Found the recipie off the Internet.. The chocolates were pretty easy to make, the cake however was a little tricky, but still managed to pull it off with the help of my mama.. Ok for a first attempt on this kinda cake.. My previous experiences were all those off the shelf mixture.. This time, I really made the cake using flour, eggs etc...
Did the chocolates on Tues, Wed and Thursday (cos got limited molds so must divide into different batches to do..) and baked the cake on Friday.. Took like 5 hours plus to finish it.. :P Brought the cake over to baby's place on Saturday and met baby after his work and headed to PS.. We were going for hi-tea with his colleagues to celebrate his birthday, crystal's birthday (3rd May) and Rong Tai's last day.. Baby ordered a cake (Chocolate Banana) @ Secret Recipe for his colleagues and also wrote Crystal's name on it so they could celebrate together... There were like 13 of us @ Secret Recipe and the manager was nice enough to let us have a corner to have our mini celebration cos initially when I ordered the cake, he was reluctant to agree to letting us celebrate it there cos the place was so small and we were gonna cut our cake around lunch time when the crowd was coming in.. Guess he changed his mind cos I was saying I'll just pop over to Swensens to order the cake since they couldn't give us a space :P He kept walking over to check on us when we were celebrating.. Not sure he was just checking whether we needed anything or he was trying to pressure us to hurry up and leave..
After we had the cake (which was pretty filling) and Crystal and Baby received their presents (Crystal's present was teddy from Build a Bear Workshop wearing soccer jersey. We also named the bear Iker Casillas whom is her favourite soccer player).. We took an MRT to Orchard.. We were going to Carousel @ Royal Plaza on Scotts for hi-tea, we reached pretty early, so we walked around @ Far East Plaza before heading to Carousel @ 330pm for our buffet.. The spread was not too bad.. The quality was so-so only though.. The food was mostly Asian food with quite a wide variety of desserts that ranges from fruits to cakes to desserts and chocolate fondue.. We ate and talked.. The only problem was the table they gave us was very long and not everyone could talk to everyone.. It would be better if the table could be round.. But then again.. dun even know whether they got such big table for 13 persons.. :P After we all had our fill, we started taking pictures and baby also opened the presents that he received.. He got an Adidas jacket from his department, a King Arthur's replica sword from the temps and another Forever Friends Bear from Crystal the 傻妹... Earlier during work, he also received presents from Nancy, Nana, Jasimin, Irene, Sharon and Yati who combined to get him a Stitch speaker and a piggy that sways his head from side to side..
After hi-tea, Baby, Brian, Bryan and Xueqian went to Cineleisure for pool whereas Crystal, Jennifer and I went to walk around. They needed to change their SGD to Yen cos they were going on a trip to Japan this Thurs (Remember to buy present for me!) Crystal also needed to buy a bag, footwear and a jacket so we walked around together to shop for those stuff.. We walked around Heeren and Paragon and Crystal managed to get her bag and slippers @ Flash and Splash.. Baby and gang were finished with pool by the time we were almost done with our shopping, we then shared cabs and headed home..
@ 12 midnight, I handed Baby his first present, a box of chocolates.. Then followed by his 2nd present, a t-shirt from Levis and thirdly, a Braun Bruffel wallet. I am known to be unable to keep secrets from Baby.. I really should pat myself on the back for being able to keep the t-shirt and wallet a secret.. The chocolates were supposed to be a secret too but dumbo me let the cat outta the bag days before his birthday.. :P
Baby went for his bike lesson early this morning.. He fell down during his lesson cos some idiot from the back knocked into him.. He said he fell on his right and skidded a little.. He had scratches on his right arm and a bad scratch on his shoulder cos it rubbed against the kerb.. So poor thing.. Sigh.. Xin tong sia.. Stoopid idiot.. Caused my baby to fall.. *bish bish*
We relaxed @ home and went out for dinner with Baby's mum and bro.. We went to Bedok's 511 for dinner.. Really ordered alot of food sia.. Crayfish, deer meat, toufu, curry fishhead, stingray and vegetables.. My tummy was bursting after all the food we ate manz.. We were so full that after reaching home, we had to delay cake cutting till a few hrs later :P Finally @ 1030, we cut baby's 24th year old birthday cake baked by me.. Each one of us oni ate a small piece cos we were still very full from dinner.. But overall I think the cake came out quite well.. Hee.. At least, all of them commented it was good and nobody said it tasted bad.. :P
Anyway, dear baby, hope you enjoyed your birthday celebration this weekend and liked all the presents that you received.. Till next year! Maybe I shall attempt to bake u a cake in the shape of your face next year.. Hehe.. Then I'll have to 闭关修炼 for 365 days liaoz.. =P Love ya loadz..
Pictures.. loads of them coming up.. (On second thoughts, I think I'll post them tomorrow.. Cos really sleepy liaoz.. :P)
