On the day of your birthday, your tooth decided to be too loose. So before the party started, daddy gave your tooth a gentle tug and it came off.
It's so shaky already
Ta-da.. bou geh
And very excitedly, you asked to put the tooth inside the tooth album (you finally got to use it!!). I asked if you wanted to put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy to give you some money, but you didn't want to do it. So we put it into the album and even informed Nat Kor-kor (who gave you this album) that you finally have a tooth to place into the album.
Update: Now you decide that you want to put that tooth under your pillow! Haiyo.. not allowing that. So lucky thing your other tooth is now shaky. You will soon have a new tooth to put under your pillow.
We usually try to prepare food which you kids like to eat for your birthdays. This year for your 6th birthday party, we prepared local specialties which you prefer to eat. Ah Ma also added to the dishes with her very crispy roast pork.
This year only Audrey and Ko-ko (and your 3 year old Ee-ee) were the children who made it to the party. But we still had fun. Here you are giving instructions for the "Find the Num Noms Treasure Hunt":
Soon it was cake time. Here is your mango flavoured Num Noms cake:
You came along with us and picked the "sparklers" candle:
As it was still early, we allowed you to unwrap all the presents and even picked a few to open and started playing them with Audrey.

Your birthday was something you had been looking forward to for a long long time. And this year for school, you requested a butterfly themed cake. Coincidentally, we had also bought a butterfly print dress. It was rather loose, but you were very keen to wear it. (The night before, I let you try it and got you to ask daddy if it was too big. You went down to check with him and told me "Daddy said it looks very pretty.." aiya.. that wasn't what I asked you to check with him. Anyways, you got your wish to wear that dress).
The next morning was easy to wake you up. Even your hairstyle was planned by you.
As usual, we dropped Ko-ko at school, then dropped you off at school. Then we headed off for breakfast and then back to school to wait for 9am to come (as requested by your teacher).
While waiting, we put the finishing touches to the cake: to decorate the cake with the pre-cut butterflies.
And here is the birthday girl with the "Birthday tag"
And even had "Birthday Sunglasses"
The class sang the birthday song in 3 languages and they even said a prayer for you
You served most of your classmates the cake and even brought some for the other 6 year old class teachers.
Took a picture with your class teacher, Miss Varghese
Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that we were no longer allowed to give party packs. But Miss Varghese made an exception as you were also leaving the school earlier that year.
These were the party packs which was had packed and labelled the weekend before for your classmates:

Since it was a public holiday and daddy was off for golf, we decided to make another round of pancakes. This time I doubled up the recipe. I had to use the mixer (which was a good choice) to whisk the egg whites and also to mix up the other ingredients.
When Ko-ko finally crawled out of bed, I had started frying up the pancakes.. but it was very slow. So he took another pan and helped me to fry them up. It was a good thing too, or else I reckon I would be standing at the stove for an extra hour if not for his help.
So, ta-da.. here's our pancakes. Had to go with honey as we had run out of maple syrup.

Even Mrs. Sebastian was surprised. She thought that I had tied your hair the night before...

For the last day of school, it was the Awards Night for the school. No, you did not receive any award, but I hope that you had a good time learning and coping in the new school. Proud to say that you still played an important role that night, working in the back to take care of the sound system for the whole evening with your team.
The only time you made an appearance was for the finale, choir. Despite sitting quite up front, we could not get a clear shot of you as you were skulking behind your friend.
