As you were not well yesterday, we had the party today. We went downtown to Maxim's to collect your cake. It was the last cake to be collected in the shop that night.
You got to sit in front with the cake. And when everyone had seen the cake, Principal Lilly got them to stand around the cake and you and started to sing the birthday song in English, Malay and Mandarin.
As you could not blow our 4 candles at once, everyone helped you to blow it out then they all went back to sit at their own places.
Teacher Sharmine cut the cake while you and I helped to distribute the cake to your friends. She asked if daddy and I wanted to have some cake. We said "no". Later on daddy said he's not dare to eat any as everyone had "helped" to blow out the candle, there was bound to be "extra ingredients" on the cake!
Teacher Sharmine had not cut very big slices for all of your classmates. But when I'd asked why not, she said not to worry as your friends will know to ask for more cake if they wanted any more. Which they did. I'm glad they enjoyed the cake. I know you did. You had 3 slices. After all you picked the design of the cake and also ensured that there was "colourful hundreds and thousands" on the sides of the cake.
Before we left, you distributed the party packs to your classmates. The boys got the party pack with a green ribbon (with Transformers stickers) while the girls had the party pack with pink ribbon (with princess or My Friends Tigger & Pooh stickers). I had checked with your teacher on the number of boys and girls and never thought of packing any extra (Note to self: next time pack extras). Thank goodness although there were new students, there was also absent students, so in the end my 17 packets were just enough. You had to give up yours and I had to promise you a party pack at home so you seemed happy with that arrangement.
You were so happy throughout the celebration, being the center of attention for that 30 minutes or so. You kept hugging and kissing us, showing your happiness.
We went home and had lunch then picked you up from school after that.
Well we went downstairs, had breakfast and started to open the presents. So many presents. You are one lucky little boy!!! Here you are opening all the presents. Too many for you to play with or read all at once, but you've been reading or playing or learning with the new items.
A big THANK YOU to everyone for their thoughtful presents and wishes for our little boy.

On Saturday, we left you at home with strict instructions to nap by 3pm (Especially since you woke up a 7.30am to go to the market). Of course, you should still remember the "threat" so even before 3pm you were already asleep in your room. When we wanted to go out to pick up the cake and balloons, you had insisted that you wanted to go along. But after telling you that you had to take a nap and mummy and daddy had to go out to make sure your party was fun, you agreed to stay at home with Ah Ma.

By the time we cut the cake and sang the birthday song, it was past 10pm. Everyone had a leisurely dinner and even daddy got to relax a bit after his "BBQ duty" was finally over. Here's the cake:
When everyone sang the birthday song, you also joined in and sang the song for yourself. The party continued with cakes, ice-cream potong and coconut jelly. By the time everyone left, it was close to 12 midnight. We did not open the presents that night except for one. I let you pick a present to open and you picked the present which was given by Ah Ma and Ah Kong.
After your shower and a book, you KOed almost immediately.
Countdown: 1 day to your birthday.

It's been a while since we've been to the playground. And since we were off yesterday, we decided to head to the Bukit Dumbar Reservoir. After all, it was nearer to where we are not than the Youth Park... although to get there also took us quite a while, since it was a Friday and there were loads of people on their way back home.

Ian and your two Tou-tou
It was Sunday again, but we left earlier that day so that you could sleep early and wake up for school the next day. I didn't want to have to receive a phone call from you crying and insisting on going to school at 10am.

There was only 1 other little kid for you to play with. But Chloe is younger than you and you weren't too keen to play with her. It was worst when she took your carrot drink and drank it. You cried and cried and since there was no more carrot juice left, someone passed me a box (I'm not too sure who it belonged to.. or was it yours?) and you finally stopped crying. But since she was given her daddy's phone to play with, you willingly sat next to her and watched her play with her games. After that, you took my phone and started to play with the games too.
