As topic, Baby Serene is One.
We actually celebrated her birthday on 8th September, few days earlier than her actual day. As a new mummy , of cos this is my 1st time organizing birthday party especially for my own baby.
Weeks or months b4 the day, I’ve actually started to roughly plan how I want the party to be. At 1st I tot of doing it at restaurant which is such an easy job. Somehow on the second thought, I guess make it over the house will be more meaningful and easier to invite guest.
Other than venue, I keep on google on Pororo themed cake, and which its mostly made of Fondant. I only love Fondant for its artwork but definitely not for its cake. So I did manage to contact a few local online bakery, somehow the price seems to be freaking over our budget. I mean will you spend over rm350 for a pororo fondant cake? I will instead buy real pororo and put on top the cake and still it wouldn’t cost that much. So for us, we think its a bit over budget hence I decided to go for a local bakery and try my luck there. Finally I found one and they charge RM100 for this little half kilograms pororo fondant cake. It’s definitely still expensive but at least it’s within our budget and Serene is happy with it.
Party deco also part of my job. I knew becos I never had a birthday party like this b4 so I would like to fancy up for my baby just to fulfil my own dreams. I bought a lot of deco from taobao, yes, I order from china and post it here. The funny thing is, I was too bz and ended up some of the item I forget to take it out .
I have bought mickey and minnie balloons for the kids who attend the party instead of goodies bag I think this will make them happier. At least I feel so. Thanks to my friend who helped me pump the balloon gas.
For the food, I ordered catering from a nearby restaurant. Luckily it taste good and the portion was overloaded. I ordered for 40 person but it turned out to be enough for 60 people.
For Serene herself, I believe she did not enjoy the party. We started the party at 5.30pm just to prevent mosquitoes but somehow she is still over sensitive. She got the whole body swollen, probably due to allergies. By 8pm we ended up at Columbia Asia emergency ward. Luckily the swollen part is gone after medicine.
She woke up happily the next morning to enjoy all the birthday presents. It’s always to see her back in shape. It’s always the most torturing part when you see your baby is feeling unwell.
On her actual day, my mother in law played the picking items game with baby. Her 1st item was a calculator. Then she took a drumstick and she refused to out it down. I am not sure if sje can be a good accountant or not nut for the second choice, I have confirm that she is a super tamjiak girl.
That marks the great 1 year old of Baby Serene. Going through ups and downs. You are such a tough girl baby! Mummy is so proud of you. You are always my miracle
