Birthday Party at Downtown East Chalet

It was Dylan's 3rd Birthday Party celebration at Downtown East Chalet on Xmas Day.The wall was nicely decorated with a disney banner surrounded by fanciful balloons. Guests could even leave down words of wishes on the piece of paper you see on the right. It was pasted on the the door beside the main door. A box of magic pens were pasted on the wall too.

How creative :)


This is Dylan & his mummy, Jessica.

Below were pictures of me & the 2 boys inside the chalet.

We were there early. The boys were jumping on the beds inside the chalet. It was so cosy that Amos rested on it with all sorts of position you can see... LOL :D
My friend, Jessica even brought along her cookery sets just to make porridge with spinach & mushroom) for her little birthday boy. How thoughtful!!

There were extra & she scoop a bowl for Amos. However, Zac was the one who finished up the porridge. Amos didn't like the taste, it was a bit blend. I added a few cubes of satay meat for Zac to go along with the porridge :)

Look at the BIRTHDAY cake. It was just TOO exquisite. A 3-tier birthday cake... WOWOW... !!

All the kids were thrilled at the look of it. This is the first time I see such an elaborated birthday cake. I heart it too. The sticks on the cake were individual edible lollipop to be distributed for the kiddos. So cute rite? Also, each tier of cake gave a different flavour, either fruity or chocolate, strawberry or vanilla. Awwwww.. that's just TOO wonderful. I bet it cost more than S$200 for that :)

If you are also keen in the cake. You can order it from http://www.pgcake.com/
My 2 boys each had their lollipop. Notti Amos didn't want the small lolliipop. How cheeky of him. !!

Zac was kind & gave the BIG one to Amos. Such thoughtful gesture of Zac won him 2 small lollipops then.... hehehe ;p
They each took home 2 Xmas pressie from the host. There were 2 more party packs but I didn't have time to take pic of them. I was so tired when I reached home.

When I woke up in the morning. The packs were all scattered over the floor.... The 2 rascals were way too early then me & have feasted on them..... wahahahaha :D

Reflection ...

2007 is coming to an end in a few days time...
Its time for me to reflect on my journey during the year.
2007 spin off with a Chinese New Year that wasn't an auspicious one for my family.

Sad to say, it was a year of mishap, tears & so much sadness .... the endless visits in & out of the hospitals were more than times that I actually sat down to watch the TV, can you believe it?

My late brother coping his live with an amputated leg (due to bone cancer on the leg) that changed his lifestyle totally till his death on 21 Oct 2007 at age 45 yrs old. He is still fondly missed by all of us!!

My mum also went for surgery in June, she endured it until one fine day she could hardly walk... :(

I started my blogging journey mid of this year, partly out of curiousity.
Glad to have known a handful of great friends who bring me laughter everyday just by your simple words at my shout. Even when friends gone on vacation, they remembered me & captured my name on the island's sand (see my boys & my name on the left side of the blog). Thanks, Trinity, Carlo & Amel (for the snow carve). Also, not forgeting those who remembered me & air-flown cards & pressie over. Jamilla, Emila, Jean. Thank you so much, love ya ;)

I'm awaiting for some happiness during this festive season when got a friend's message that he was diagnosed with lung cancer & had gone for chemotheraphy thrice. Its really hard to believe... someone who don't smoke, drink, lead a healthy lifestyle, went home after work to be with the family (wife & 4 kids less than 10 yrs old). I'm really speechless ...
My late brother died of lung failure due to lung cancer which has spreaded from his bone cancer.
I just felt so sore on hearing that a friend has to suffer it now. Things doesn't look too positive for me the moment the patient had to go for chemo. Somehow....
Let's pray for his speedy recover & lesser pain & torture.

I'm in a confused state of mind right down to set down my resolutions for the New Year.
I wish for good health to everybody. Its so critical :)

Xmas Pressie for the boys

Saw this interesting remote control helicopter for quite sometimes. Only last weekend did I purchase it when the boys showed much interest when there was a demo on it.

Metro is selling it for S$36+ while Kiddy Palace is having a promotion at S$29.90. EXACTLY the SAME !!

Of course I will purchase from the latter !! LOL :D

This is how the helicopter looked like !!

The boys were fighting over it. So no choice, Amos held on to the remote while Zac was playing with the plane ;p



Much difficulty to play the toy in the house. It can fly really high rather quickly. It will hit the ceiling and fall off. I need to bring the boys to the open field near my house to see how high it could go...

hehe... really an interesting toy right?

HO HO HO ... ... Merry X'mas


The boys looking curiously at the BIG X'mas tree at the newly renovated Kallang Leisure Park.


The boys posing in front of the tree. Zac gave a few funny pose as though competing for model search. He was really interesting to look at !! ;p


Amos was "jumping" with JOY :D

May all of you have a Merry X'mas & a fruitful 2008 ahead :)

The LOVE of my LIFE

A Song I LOVE a lot!

Share with ... ...
YOU


The LOVE of my LIFE
I am amazed
When I look at you
I see you smiling back at me
It's like all my dreams come true
I am afraid If I lost you girl
I'd fall through the cracks
And lose me track in this crazy lonely world

Sometimes it's so hard to believe
When the nights can be so long
And gave me the strength
And kept me holding on

Chorus
You are the love of my life
And I'm so glad you found me
You are the love of my life
Baby put your arms around me
I guess this is how it feels
When you finally find something real
My angel in the night
You are my love
The love of my life
Now here you are
With midnight closing in
You take my hand as our shadows dance
With moonlite on you skin
I look in your eyes
I'm lost inside your kiss
I think if i'd never met you
About all the things i'd missed
sometimes it's so hard to believe
when a love can be so strong
and faith gave me the strength
and kept me holding on
You are the love of my life
And I'm so glad you found me
You are the love of my life
Baby put your arms around me
I guess this is how it feels
When you finally find something real
My angel in the night
You are my love
The love of my life
