My Birthday Weekend Farm Stay

24th May 2021

Dear Chibi,

Another year younger…who’s keeping count? ;) My birthday landed on a Friday this year, but Hubby made sure I still had my favourite type of breakfast~ Waffles with oreo icecream served with hot hojicha..yummmm…what a way to start the day! ^.^ <333

*drools*

My dinner request was a no-brainer~ SUKIYAKI :DDD The cold has made it particularly awesome this year.

P-chan was so excited for it!! His favourite was the beef and tofu.
OH GOSH SO TASTY. Totally had food coma after this. Could not stop eating!!
But wait~ there’s more!! *_*

Hubby surprised me with this gorgeous Banana Caramel Cake from Patisserie New York. So delicious and pretty!! *_* The macaron..oh my.

Wow.

P-chan turns 2~ A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party

26th April 2021

Dear Chibi,

Happy 2nd birthday to our Hungry Little Caterpillar :3 He’s growing up to be a very kind, gentle boy and I hope he knows how much Mummy and Daddy loves him <3

P-chan has always enjoyed Eric Carle’s illustrations and is particularly fond of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Maybe it’s because it loves to eat, but most likely because it’s green – his favourite colour. I chose this book as his party’s theme to reflect this innocent time of his life…toddlerhood :)

~Young Mikayla had a farm, ee i ee i o~

Dear Chibi,

Today we celebrated our dear little Mikayla’s 2nd birthday! Mich & Troy threw her a very adorable farm-themed party with the birthday girl wearing a mini farmers outfit. The crew mostly came in matching flannels and P-chan of course had to come as a piggy :3 Everything was so cute and well thought out. Thank you Mich & Troy for organising such a fun party and having us be part of this day!

A Birthday at Rossmore Farm

2nd November 2020

Dear Chibi,

On Sunday my Father-in-law threw a ‘surprise’ party for my Mother-in-law’s 59th birthday at a farm in Rossmore. There were alpacas, sheep, chickens, and ponies.. plenty of entertainment for the little ones ^.^ The weather wasn’t the best.. it was raining on and off, and it got quite windy at times, but the sun did come out and we managed to have an all-round good time :) There was also a stage for karaoke in the dining area, which the older uncles and aunties enthusiastically occupied XD.

Girls Birthday Brunch @Ristretto & Co Cafe

31st May 2020

Dear Chibi,

I had my first dine-in experience since isolation 2-3 months ago, with the restrictions easing up and allowing restaurants/cafes 10 seated customers at a time (I’m pretty sure I counted more..but anyway… *ehem* ^^”). It’s funny how we used to take these simple things for granted. I arrived about 10 minutes early and was seated immediately. Things have pretty much returned to normal around here which is nice.

Our Birthday Month

22nd May 2020

Dear Chibi,

This month Hubby and I both turned a year older. I’ve sort of stopped counting after turning 30. 31..32..33..all the same-same right? XD This year felt a little different… not just because of the pandemic and being in isolation, but we now have a little toddler reminding us just how fast time flies.

Hubby’s Birthday

We celebrated Hubby’s birthday with a lot of burritos…and a lot of pizza (at his request). There was so much burritos we had to do this over 2 days, BECAUSE WHO CAN EAT THAT MANY BURRITOS AND PIZZA IN ONE DAY? That’s okay, lucky Hubby gets to enjoy his birthday for longer 8D

Our baby turns 1~ P-chan’s ‘Time Flies’ Cake Smash

25th April 2020

Dear Chibi,

Happy Birthday to our most precious Little Babian <3 Our first year of parenthood has truly been the best experience of my life. I can’t believe it’s over already…my little baby is now a toddler. He makes us so incredibly happy and proud. Maybe I should save this for a Mother’s Day post, but damn I’m feeling so emotional and grateful for having him in our life T_T AH, I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!! *sniff*

A wild one~ Mikayla turns One

25th March 2020

Dear Chibi,

A few days ago I spent an afternoon working on a card for Mikayla’s 1st birthday (it’s today!) Mich had originally planned a safari/wild theme party for her but it didn’t go ahead due to the current COVID-19 situation. I decided to draw Mikayla having a great time with her adorable animal-themed cake :) I hope she still has an amazing birthday with her family.

To everyone else, please stay safe and fingers crossed this whole nightmare will fade away soon.

Chloe’s 1st Birthday Party

4th November 2019

Dear Chibi,

GHIBLIeve it? Chloe is TOTOROly One!

Newway threw a very adorable dress up party for Chloe’s birthday, with all the decorations and details based on Studio Ghibli’s ‘My Neighbour Totoro’. She made all the props, costumes and games herself. So creative!

Kat’s Birthday @ Cuckoo Callay

24th August 2019

Dear Chibi,

Today Kat, Kaz and I had brunch in Newtown’s Cuckoo Callay to celebrate Kat’s 33rd Birthday. It was my second time leaving bub at home, though I think I’m ready to venture out alone with him next time :).

Cuckoo Calley was located literally outside Newtown station ticket gates. It’s hard to miss the bright pink logo. I grabbed a seat inside next to a huge mirror which end up being a pretty fun prop to play with XD. Our table looks so much bigger than it is XD.

Happy Birthday sis! Hope you enjoyed your birthday treat :D
