Yiu Yiu’s 5th birthday celebrations

Yiu Yiu turned five last Monday. This year, she’s a very happy little girl coz we had multiple celebrations for her :-) We started with dinner with my family and the babysitter the weekend prior to her birthday. Food was good, and the ambience was pretty nice. Most importantly, the birthday girl was thrilled with her first ever ice-cream cake.


We had wanted to have a celebration at her kindy on the actual day but since that was the first day of kindy exam, her teacher asked that we postponed it to Thursday, after the childen finished all their papers. So on Monday evening, I picked up a small cake on the way home from work, just so that she could blow the birthday candles :-)


On Thursday, hubby and I, together with Yan Yan, made our way to the kindy 30 minutes before her break time to set up the cupcakes and other finger foods. Her class was ushered into the pantry at break time to sing a birthday song for her, before we helped her class teacher to distribute the food to the children.

(L) Hello Kitty cupcakes for girls, and Ben-10 for boys; (TR) Goodies for party packs; (BR) Finger food and Milo

Watching intently as candles were lit

Newbie in the class?

We had a very happy girl that day, and she came home that evening saying, “Next year I want to celebrate my birthday in school again."
