The caterer arrived to set up the buffet line at about 5pm. Shortly after, the satay man also came and everything was in good order when our first guests arrived at about 6.30pm. After that, it was a flurry of activities with more and more guests arriving, and numerous phone calls asking for directions to our house. Hubby and I were kept very busy entertaining friends and colleagues, and showing them around the house.

There were leftover foods, so many of the guests took home some curry puffs and agar-agar (made by Yiu Yiu's babysitter), chai kueh (which we had ordered separately), fried meehoon, fried rice, and black herbal jelly. The last guests left at about 11.30pm and while I bathed Yiu Yiu and put her to bed, hubby cleaned the house. We only settled into bed at about 1.00am, tired but happy knowing that the party turned out to be mighty successful.
Pressies galore - mine, mine, they're all mine....muahahaha
