birthday grandpa & birthday girl

Two of my favourite people celebrated their birthdays last Saturday. My dad and my little darling QQ :-). Dad's birthday was on that Saturday itself, 17 July 2010. QQ's birthday was yesterday, 20 July 2010.

These lego sets were birthday presents from hubby. We realised that it is meant for much older kids (7 and above), but QQ was very attracted to the set that we got for HQ, so we thought this house set will be a nice birthday present for her. The kids play together anyway, so we can assist HQ to build, and they can play together later. In our family, birthdays are often celebrated within the family in a small scale. We went out for dinner at a favourite neighbourhood restaurant and had cake afterwards. Food we had... fried mantis prawns, steamed fish, fish maw soup, sweet & sour meat and mixed vegetables stirfried in belacan sauce (only partly in picture). My brother, the kids' Kiu kiu treated dinner. After dinner, we went to mum's and while waiting for the food to go down, the kids had a drawing and colouring session. Colouring set was Kiu kiu's present to QQ :-). Here's Kiu kiu entertaining the kids with his drawing. Can you guess what is it? A Chinese dragon :-). Later, we got the cake ready... Dad's favourite Secret Recipe carrot and walnut sheet cake.
Blowing candles...HQ wanted to serve us, so he cut the slices, placed them onto plates and served all of us :-). Look how happy Gong gong was :-DI must say, he did a good job serving us one by one... no mess. But with a 5 year old, this is bound to happen... he licking the cake knife :-P... kids are so spontaneous :-D.
