This year, I was determined to remember it but I almost didn't. Shoot me, I'm so bad with birthdays. Sometimes I don't even remember my family's birthdates. This year, again, I forgot about it until it was almost too late. I quickly WA my favourite baker and asked if she can squeeze in some cupcakes for me. I knew asking her to bake a cake for me with less than a day's notice is a bit pushing it so I opted for cupcakes. Turns out, she is already baking some and have some leftovers. I told her "I'll take whatever you have!"…
I didn't have time to look for a gift too. I quickly went on ZALORA and look for a gift. I saw a few nice stuff that I think she will like and I asked my daughter to pick one for her and my daughter picked this pink wallet.
Nice or not? LOL. Not exactly my taste but ah well, at least it comes from the heart. My daughter's heart. I also ordered some tops for her.
The wallet came on time and I quickly wrapped it without my daughter knowing. I don't want her to keep bugging me about who the gift is from. She can't really keep a secret. I just told her we need to look for a gift for someone and that was it. The tops I ordered never came. They are not directly from ZALORA apparently. Ah well.
The night before her birthday, in bed, I told my kids that they have to wish kakak Happy Birthday when they wake up in the morning and I said that they cannot fight with her on her birthday. They said ok. They're always arguing with each other that's why!
That birthday morning, we all got up early and wished her Happy Birthday. Kids was super excited.
After dinner, we had a singing / cake cutting ceremony for my maid.
Overall it was a good mini celebration I think. She thanked us.
Daughter: Mummy, I didn't fight with kakak today you know
Me: That's good. You cannot fight with her on her birthday, its not nice!
Daughter: but tomorrow it won't be her birthday anymore. Can i fight with her again tomorrow?
(asking me with a serious face and tone with her big eyes!) How not to laugh?
