So Angry...

So Angry...

Had waited for 3 days and yet to hear from the bakery.. I had so much faith in it all along and even speak good words for it in its facebook. But what did I get in return?

I understand, maybe the staff who served me could be out of town but I believe there should be someone covering her/him...

I have two cakes yet to confirm the orders!!! OMG... what should I do?!! If I don't hear from it by Monday, I am going to post a complaint on its FB and then change a baker!!!

Late Nights...


Been sleeping really late these days...

No, I stopped bringing work home because I realised I cannot work from home. So instead of feeling bad over the pile of work I brought home and spoilt my weekday nights and weekends, I decided to just try to finish whatever I can at work and head home with only one intention = spend more time with my family members.

So what have I been busy about?

Well, Jamie's birthday parties lor!

Though there aren't much to worry about for Jamie's school party (for this year at least) since we will only be buying a cake and preparing the goodie bags. However, there is always the concerns on cake toppers. Hmm.. I have two sets of mickey cake toppers but am worried Jamie will keep looking for the set she had been playing with. So may have to get another set for the party. Let's hope she continues to be Mickey's big fan for a few more years so I can recycle the toppers a few more timse :P

Okies, as far.. after ALL the late nights and panda eyes... these are the status of her parties preparation:

1. ordered both cakes but waiting for the confirmation slip. Both from pine gardens.. will show u the photos of the cakes i ordered when i get home tonite..
2. bought 90% of the goodie bags, and party stuffs
3. ordered the remaining 5% online liao, waiting for delivery
4. ordered the 25 cupcakes n made payment le..
5. decided on the tentative sunny and rainy day programmes

I am only left with:
1. 5% of the party stuffs
2. the layout of the place

All the Way! All the Way! GOOOOOOOOO~~~~~

Jamie's Two Year Old Birthday Bash - Food and Activities

Sometimes I also wonder if I am just creating too much stress for myself, by hoping to do so much for Jamie's birthday each year.

It seems to be my biggest event of the year instead of Jamie's.

However, it's really fun to go through the planning over and over again... And it's fun to always have something to look forward to every year :D

We are kinda of 'too old' to have birthday parties so now we can only look forward to our children's parties ^^

Love sharing the whole planning and preparing process and Hope this will help those who are planning their little ones'parties too ^^

Let's start with the planning of the food and activities...

Food as far had been confirmed to be 60 pax until 1 week from the event.

Had always been ordering from Elsie Kitchen (Halal) but the last round was kinda of disappointing for my house warming. I tried Meihao99 during a block party in August 2011 and thought it was really good. Hence I decided to give it a try for Jamie's birthday. But the only pity was, it was not halal...

Now is Cake...

By the way, Jamie is having two parties these year. One is for her school on her exact birthday 11 November 2011 and the other is on 13 November 2011 and will be at my brother's condo function room. Really thankful for my brother and da sao for helping me booked the function room.

Back to the Cake. As usual, the cakes will be from Pine Garden. And I will be trying some new favours this round. Have to say Citrus Drops and Lychee Martini was great the last year. This year, we should be having Citrus Drops and Fresh Strawberry for school and Hazelnut Chocolate and Fresh Strawberry for home party :)

Cake designs have to be kept as a secret till after the event :P Now to search for the cake toppers... Had a set for one cake but may need to get another set for the other cake :D

So exciting now that I bought 90% of the goody bags items + order catering, tentatively confirm the programme/activity and tentatively confirm the cake orders.

More to go and yet I am loving it ^^
