A Small Family Gathering to Celebrate My Daugther's Birthday

My daughter celebrated her 10th birthday a few weeks ago and she wanted me to throw a party for the occasion. Well, since I was quite tied up with some work and projects, we just had a small family gathering at home. I cooked all her favourite food............. Rosemary Chicken and Capsicum, Carrot & Pineapple salad with Croutons. Instead of having the usual birthday party type of food, I prepared Penang Hokkien Mee (Prawn Noodles) and Penang Lor Mee (Thick Gravy Noodles). Both are her favorite food too. I like to mix the Hokkien Mee soup with the Lor Mee soup aka in Hokkien Dialect "Lor Cham Theng"...fantastic taste! Then, her doting 3 Kor (Third Auntie) bought her a huge Barbie doll cake. Kids are so lucky nowadays!You can see from the photo, my little two and a half year old toddler hands reaching out to touch the cake. He managed to put his hand in to the box and scooped out some of the icing. Then he happily licked the icing off his hands!

When the actual day came, my daughter wanted the same Mee Suah (wheat flour vermicelli) like the one that I cooked for my wife on her birthday! So, daddy have to hit the kitchen to prepare the mi sua for her!

After eating her Mi Sua, she told me that next year she also wants to have the same Car Shaped Cake like the one that I baked for my wife........
Aiyo, already order in advanced lorrr!
