We had a little staycation over the weekend at Punggol Ranch Resort to celebrate Asher’s 3rd birthday. I think it is amazing how my little bun is looking all grown up already. I had been cracking my brains for a venue for his 3rd birthday since a few months back. For his first big bash, we had it held at KidsAmaze, then the 2nd one was done in our home and now I needed a fresh, new location for a cosy little private party with family and close friends.
Then I thought since he was fascinated with the horses and ponies whenever we visited Punggol Ranch, why not there? In fact, I had been trying to book a room there but apparently, it is very popular especially with families with young children. So when I finally scored a room via agoda.com, I was elated!
And so it is the time of the year again, where I am another step closer to 40. *shudders* This year’s birthday was a nice, quiet affair which included a lot of feasting. I’m so blessed by all the treats and wonderful presents. On Saturday, we had an awesome lunch at Sumiyah Charcoal Grill Izakaya and dinner at Beaulieu House, thanks to hub’s aunty. Food was great at Sumiyah, fresh sashimi and delicious skewed meats. Loved it! Then on Sunday night, I whipped up a simple dinner and had the sister ovr. She treated me to Pizza Hut the next day for lunch to fulfill my pizza craving. I know Pizza Hut isn’t the best place to go for pizzas but they are having this 1 for 1 promo now and I just had to take advantage of it. Then later on that night, hub’s aunty treated us to Thai Express. I must have gained 10 kg from all the pigging out!
This is so cute, my google doodle for today shows birthday cakes and candles. Nice one, Google!
I used to look forward to birthdays but as I got older, the anticipation sorta just died off. But anyway a birthday is still a good excuse to pig out, so yesterday we celebrated my birthday with some nice peranakan food from The Blue Ginger down Tanjong Pagar.
Gosh, time really flies! In a blink of an eye, it’s already November! I don’t even know if I’m all prepared to face 2014 but we are just mere 2 months alway from the new year.
Anyway, come November, MFP will be covering articles such as interesting how-to videos on crayon hair and how to apply makeup in a moving vehicle, highlighting celebrities’ imperfections, more sushi and bento articles… More coverage on food and dogs! Yipee for dog lovers like me <3
It has been a crazy roller coaster ride for this past 1 year, but here we are celebrating your FIRST birthday. I’m so blessed to have you in my life.
We held his first birthday party yesterday and despite it being a Sunday evening with work and all the next day, we were glad that our guests took the effort to turn up. We thank everyone who came and made Keandre Asher’s first a very memorable one for him.
This little guy was overwhelmed by the no of people clapping and singing the birthday song for him till he couldn’t stop shrieking in delight and clapping along.
Here’s the tee I had hand-painted for him to match The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. Only mummies would recognize the theme because this is a famous children’s book by Eric Carle.
And we love it, we have it in 3 different versions; the hard cover, the sound book and the finger puppet book. Yes, mommy’s a book addict. In fact, Asher has a collection of close to 100 story books now. We have not read all since majority are not age-appropriate. I’m only reading those meant for ages 2-4 to him now. The rest are kinda too lengthy for a one year old whose easily distracted by his surroundings.
After midnight, Asher graduates from being a BABY to a TODDLER. I love you, sweetheart, many new adventures awaits us.

Before I had time to pen down my 2013 resolutions, my birthday is over in a flash. And yes, I am a year nearer to permanent Auntiehood. =/ Last year’s birthday cake was so huge, I was still eating it for breakfast over the next few days.
That’s only the head you see and my lovely Mocha.
This year, I opted for a small cake from Polar because it’s my personal birthday tradition that everyday birthday should be celebrated with a cake.
And even though I had an advanced birthday dinner at Su Korean restaurant at Far East Plaza. Seriously, I think they are overpriced somehow or I’m still upset that my pork was overcooked.
But I spent my birthday over the causeway, it was unplanned but at least the food was cheap and good. Just a sneak peek of what I had…
OK and then I had some shopping done but I ended up buying stuff for the little one. I’m going broke now and most of the stuff are buy are usually baby books, clothes or necessities. I guess most mothers are like that 😉 Willing to spend on the baby instead of themselves anymore.
By the way, Mocha just had surgery done to remove the normal testicle and the one which didn’t descend. Poor boy has 2 sutures instead of 1 due to that and even though he is back to his normal self. There are moments where he just sleeps cause he is too tired out. He usually konks out after taking his meds which is a good thing because I don’t want him to accidentally tear his stitches while prancing around. Please pray for his speedy recovery!
Now, I hope I will get down to the 2013 resolutions soon. I’ll be back… I still have got a bunch of beauty products STILL waiting to be reviewed and I am going back to work next week. OMG! So many things to do but so little time.
Yesterday was Mocha’s bday but of course, we had celebrated in advance on the Saturday before. We got him a mini cake from the US Doggie Bakery at Pet Safari. It’s Mocha’s 2nd cake, the first he had was from mine.
That’s Mocha looking at my cake and this one below is his.
It’s banana flavored and he’s real excited over his cake.
We had a hard time making him sit & pose for this photo cuz he was so fascinated by the candle and of cus the lure of the yummy, delicious cake.
Mocha digs in once we give him the go ahead.
As of today, he’s officially 1 years old. I love you, baby!
