JL's 7th Birthday

Last Saturday 19Mar was JL’s birthday. This was the first year he would not be having so many cakes like the previous years. We discussed with him that from now onward, he would only have 1 cake. Usually he would have 3 cakes for family, kindy and church. However, it is difficult to bring cake to his primary school and also his children church as it involved more kids. He was agreeable and he also said AL would still have 3 cakes like he used to. We were glad that he was big enough to understand.

We decided to order Swensen’s Ice-Cream Cake for him. JL chose Chocolate BlackForest. He wanted jelly cake but PaPa said he would make one jelly just for him. We let him choose the flavor of the jelly he wanted.
He wanted a bicycle as his previous bicycle was too small. AL was happily taking over the bicycle. Coincidently, my friend was on duty travel to Taipei and was willing to bring back a bicycle for JL. I didn’t know that bicycle in Taiwan was cheap until PaPa informed me. My friend landed in KLIA at noon just one day before his actual birthday. PaPa and I went to KLIA to collect and hide at Sam Yee’s apartment before we fetched the kids back home from their grandparents’ apartment. Sam Yee Cheong was at home waiting for us to bring the bicycle to hide.

JL was busy on his birthday where he attended his Tae-KwonDo in the morning and afternoon he went for his BeyBlade Competition in the Curve (which he made everyone proud of his achievement… another post to share…). After the competition, we went to evening church service. We had a simple dinner in Kenny Rogers and collected the Ice-Cream Cake. Sam Yee and Sam Yee Cheong helped us to buy Haji Samuri Sate.

KongKong, PohPoh, MahMah, Aunty PohPoh, Sam Yee and Sam Yee Cheong gathered at our apartment for supper birthday. Yi Yee couldn’t make it as she was attending a wedding. Tai Pak and whole family were in Cameron Highlands. JL was so happy opening his presents that he hardly ate his birthday cake. The highlight of the presents was his GIANT and NERF. Sam Yee and Sam Yee Cheong gave me a big NERF gun. Besides that, he also got a lot of wonderful gifts and angpau from his grandparents.

He was busy fixing his GIANT with PaPa and NERF with Sam Yee Cheong.

AL also had presents even though it was not her birthday. While JL was posing with his new GIANT, AL also didn’t want to miss posing with her KorKor’s small bicycle.

However, we still owe him Sakae Sushi makan just four of us…this weekend….
