A simple birthday celebration for Aden

We celebrated Aden's first birthday at home last year, invited some close friends and their babies along.

This year, we decided to be a bit low profile celebrate outside, just a simple dinner with the families. Reason being is to avoid the cleaning haha xD 

Anyway, went to Penang on Monday and before my brother boarded the flight to Singapore, he treated Aden and us lunch, and a birthday cake for Aden ;)


Aden: Erm what's going on?

Aden: Eh is that cake for me?

Aden: Oh so it'y my birthday today? Yay!!

My parents and the naughty Aden

The Japanese lady sitting next to us offered to take this photo for us ;) Arigatou~

Time to blow the candles!


Aden: Well I think the candles light are too pretty, let's just leave it like that la!

On the actual day, FIL treated all of us dinner.

I ordered an 1kg chocolate car cake for Aden. Wanted to order a 3D one but in the end, decided to go with the normal one since Aden is too young to differentiate normal and 3D, LOL!

Specially for my birthday boy~

Cheeky boy!

With my loved ones~

With the in laws~

Aden and his new friend, the boss's grandson

Sang song for him and he seems to enjoy that moment very much!

That's our family tees I bought last year from Bangkok

Time to slice the cake and feast on it! Yumz~

Although it wasn't any fancy and grand celebration for the little one, I am thankful enough, as we got to celebrate this day with our loved ones. Living simply makes loving simple!

  2. So far I never plan for a birthday party for my both kids too..Always opt to go for family dinner.

    2. haha, so cute Aden knows it's his birthday when his uncle bought him the cake with two candles.. hmmm, SR Chocolate Indulgence that is?? that's one of my favorite also leh.. sometimes i passed by the SR kiosk at LRT station, i cannot resists and sure walk over the counter to look at those cakes, fuyoh, very dangerous you know because i love cakes and they all look so good.. but glad that everytime i am able to control myself from buying.. i must tell myself two things : wah, RM10 a piece so expensive and eat already very fattening woh.. this works for me, haha!! :D

    3. haha, yalor, no need to buy expensive cakes lah.. this cake is nice enough though when you mentioned car cake in the previous post, i expect you to get him a real 3D car cake leh.. but you are right also lah, he is still too young to differentiate 3D and 2D, this one nice lah.. last time if i could have this kind of birthday cake, i happy until cannot sleep already and 不捨得 eat also lor, haha!!

    4. nice celebration with family and loved ones lah, actually no need to 大搞, and especially don't do it at home because you will end up being so exhausted doing all the preparation and especially the cleaning up, fuyoh!! 一次過後別搞我了.. go outside one family eat together, sing song together already nice lah.. somemore you are wearing the 親子裝, so nice~~ :)

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
