Mabel’s 17th Birthday Celebration
We were in Malacca last weekend for several occasions and one of them was my niece Mabel’s 17th birthday.
Darling had known my nieces since they were very young and just look at how grown up they are now. Makes me feel so OLD!
The parents catered Malay food as they’ll be having Malay guests too.
The catering comes with a SATAY GIRL who looks exactly like my eldest sis :P
The customary Birthday Song session. Look at Ethan so bersemangat singing the Birthday Song. I made the guests continue singing in Bahasa Malaysia and Chinese version, but when I requested Mabel’s friends to sing in Tamil everyone just froze there, SILENT! >_<
I know it’s kinda awkward standing there (not knowing what to do) while people are singing the birthday song for you and ONE is always enough but Mabel had to endure 3 versions! LoL! Lantak lah, who ask her to have ME as her aunt? ^_^
Blowing the flames off the candle. If the Daddy had not pulled Ethan, he surely would have contributed his share of saliva onto the cake too! As of that night, we all only get to savor Mabel’s saliva :P
And the photography session begins..
Mabel, her sister Hazel and their grandparents (MY parents)
Mabel with her parents and her grandparents (the father’s side).
Let me tell you a little story about Mabel’s father’s side. Her grandfather used to be my Add Math tuition teacher while her father used to be my computer teacher. My eldest sis wanted to learn computer after I enrolled in their tuition centre and that is how she got to know my brother-in-law. Needless to say, she dropped out of class (if I’m not mistaken) because it is illegal for a teacher to date the student? Tsk tsk..
Mabel and her friends
Suddenly the cake got so lonely with nobody wanting to be photographed with it anymore. So…
The cake fight began with the Birthday Girl getting the most casualty.
The little ones self-entertained in the house away from the happeni-nings of the crowd outside.
The crowd outside. Urm, I was mostly in the house as it was much cooler in there ^_^
And then I saw something really, really RARE. It was so RARE that I was taken aback for a second and HAD to STOP him!
I saw my Darling walking out of the kitchen pouring beer into a mug! I just HAD to STOP him and asked, “You okay ah?!!” To which he replied, “Not mine-lah”
My eldest aunt had actually requested for it and he being the good one, went inside to get it for her while I was busy watching TV! Hehe.. I’ve never seen him pouring beer. Actually I’ve never seen him holding a bottle of beer ever! My Darling ada gaya to be a Bad Boy oso! It kinda turned me on pulaks.. Hahahahaha! Okay, okay TMI dy. This post is supposed to be rated G for General Audience :P
Anyway, back to Mabel’s birthday, here are some of her presents that evening.
I did not stay up to see her unwrap her birthday gifts as I went into the room to sleep with Ethan first.
Happy Birthday again Mabel. Can’t believe you are this big already. It feels just like yesterday I went home from college to see you for the very first time and now everyone says that we look alike.
Your mom even did this to prove it:
