A Comeback, an Anniversary and a Birthday

Hello there everyone. Here am I once again, back to the blogosphere after a loooooong gap. I am now living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for good. It took me this long to really settle down.

Yesterday we celebrated 2 occasions, the 5th anniversary of my motherhood and my dearest daughter’s 5th birthday. It is the greatest day in my life. Being a mother is an invaluable gift. 5 years passed by just too fast. My lovely daughter has grown up that it’s now difficult for me to carry her.

She said “amma, for my birthday I want everything princess.” As a doting mother, it’s my duty to fulfill her desire. I made a princess cake, my brother made a princess jelly and my sister dolled my daughter up to become a princess.

The 3 Princesses

As usual I prepared quite a number of items for the party.

The Food Spread

My brother made multi-layered and multi-coloured jelly. I baked Pineapple Jam Cake as the base and Vanilla Cake as the gown.

Princess Jelly and Princess Cake

Prawn Fried Rice

Grilled Spicy Chicken

Carrot and Broccoli Soup

Potatoe and Tuna Bruschetta

Mixed Vege Salad

Rock Bun and Marble Jelly
