The much long awaited birthday party entry

The preparation started about a month before the event. Yup, very well prepared and carefully thought of event despite having to juggle between other commitments in life like work and making sure the cuties were well prepared for their exams.

We have agreed to segregate this event into 2 segments ; the afternoon was for the tahlil and later at 4pm would be the birthday party. Why 2 segments? Cause based on our experience. when all of our guests come all at once, they will be those who we won't even get the chance to talk to. And that would not fit the purpose of having a party when you can't even spend time to talk to your guests.

We engaged McD to organise the games for the party. We thought what is a childrens' birthday party without games. At first we wanted to engage this event company which are specialised in handling this kind of thing, but the quote given were too expensive which we thought it was kind of ridicilous to pay such amount of money.

All the food were self cooked except for the burger and pizza. We wanted to have 2 sets of menu, one for adults and the other one for children.

We also had 2 cakes, the afternoon was the Ben10 cake chosen by my hero and the afternoon was the Powerpuff Girls cake chosen obviously by my princess and my baby.

You wanna know more about the party with more pics(I was too busy making sure all went well that I forgot to take most of the pictures, luckily I have many friends who were doing the snapping of pics for me), come and visit this blogs(ada yg tak update lagik kot), those who were kind enough to travel to our humble home to share this occassion with us.

Gina Manan - who was one of the first person to arrived. Thanks for coming and taking the trouble to make sure she got the right gifts for the cuties,. thanks dear and if you are in KL, let's have lunch

K Red - who helped me to send some of the invites out. I was bugged down with work that I did not get the chance to invite all personally, thanks babe!

Atty - who brought along her adorable daughter and cute little son. Atty is a fun person to talk too and hope to get a chance to get to know her more

My son had his first birthday party just last year and I can totally agree with you! I started planning for it 2months before 'cause I really want it to be special, being his first and him being our firstborn. We told our guests to come at different times, the kids in the afternoon and our adult friends at dinnertime so all of them would fit in our small house. Congrats for having a fun and successful party!
