My Dad's 60th Birthday

We celebrated my dad's 60th birthday on last Saturday and this was a big day that everyone of us looking forward for so long.

At first, we thought that Felix might not be joining us as his wife was down with high fever when they were in KL. I'm so glad to know that they changed their plan to going back to Singapore and joining us for the birthday dinner instead. This was really a good news to my dad as we can feel that he was so disappointed at first when he knew that his son and grandson didn't happen to come back to celebrate his birthday with him. Felix and his family drove back to Ipoh on Friday.

The night finally came and Kendra was so excited to present her cake to her gong gong. She was so happy during the dinner and keep on "stick" to her beloved gong gong. When Felix and family arrived, all the focus were on them especially his son - Rafael. This is the first time Rafael came back to Ipoh and all our relatives never see him before.

Here are some photo taken during the dinner...........

Madagascar Fever

Yupe...... Madagascar is her 2nd favourite after Shrek. When she first saw the Madagascar II advertisement on TV, she was so excited and keep on singing "I like to move it, move it......" Until her grandpa came and ask me what she want actually.... LOL!

I got a copy of the latest catalog of Tupperware and so happy to see the Madagascar items. Without think twice, I drove to the nearest Tupperware office with Kendra to grab the items. Initially, I just want to get a set of the tumbler and the One Touch Topper set. Too bad that the One Touch Topper set is a PWP item and need to spend RM50 from this range to get it. So, I thought of going home with empty hands since I don't have the intention to get 4 tumbler just for the One Touch Topper. Kendra was so disappointed when I told her that we are going home without any purchase of the Madagascar items. She start to show her pity face and keep sitting on the floor and don't let me to bring her home. The shop owner can't stand to see her pity face and allow me to purchase the One Touche Topper set without the required purchase amount. She was happily home with her "Alex" tumbler at the end.

Other than the Tupperware items, we lso get her the toys from McDonald. So far, only collected 3 pcs and still waiting for the others to be release. And the cute hairband is from McDonald too!

We brought her to the cinema on last Sunday for the show and she was so excited. Before this, I had told her that when we go to cinema, we will have pop corn, cheezel, coke....... that's why she is so looking forward to the show. After the show when we were walking to the car park, She told her daddy :"Tomorrow we come again ar...." Hubby and I can feel how she enjoy herself for the show and promise her to get her the DVD once it's available.

She is Diapers Free

It has been a week Kendra didn't put on any diapers for the past one week. At first, I'm scare to take off her diapers at night as I haven't get any waterproof sheet to start get this big project started. But, from my observation over the past few weeks, her diapers were dry on the next day morning. Hubby insisted to take off her diapers and give it a try.

We will asked her to go to the toilet before she go to bed and when she wake up in the next day morning, we will ask her to go to the toilet again. Phew!!!! She did it without fail for the past one week and we are so proud of her.

Now, my problem is how to get rid of the left over diapers in my store room. Maybe will sell it below the market price...... wait for my post ya!!!!

American Baked Cheesecake

I never thought of I can baked a cheesecake before as I always thought it's very complicated to bake it and it's better to buy from the bakery shop if I'm craving on it.

After I read a post from her blog, I got the inspiration to bake my very first Cheesecake this week. Although the cake looks a bit weird but the taste was good than what I'm expected.... yummy!!!
