Baking Cookies With Mommy

First of all, thank you very much, Shelley, for inviting us to this event!! We had such a good time!!
It's baking with mom with love at Hotel Intercontinental. Cookie baking plus high tea. Double wow!

Here's the chief chef for this session. Jaimie was so super excited to bake cookies and doing it together with her good friend Sera made her even happier.

The "official" photographer's job is to... take photos, of course. :)

The 4 girls. Reminds me of the good times we spent baking together when we were in UK.

Jaimie couldn't wait.

Waiting for instructions.

Chef Frankie doing the demo. Yeah! Let's start!

Ah-ah! What are you eating, girl!

Tossing the cookie dough.

Coating with cornflakes.

Little hands at work.

Little hands helping mommy. Love this bonding time.

The helpful chefs walking around to help us.

I made a conscious effort to let Jaimie do as much as she could.

While the cookies were being sent into the oven, we went for the high tea.

Cookies baked with love. :)))

A Very Special Mothers' Day Celebration

Last week, Jaimie came home and urged me to go to her school to attend the Mothers' Day celebration as she was going to perform.

I wasn't very early but early enough to get a seat right in front so that I would have an unobstructed view later. The celebration started with some ice breaking games among the mommies and then the pre-nursery and N1 children came out to present their mommies with their handmade crowns. The N2 students did a very quick song which I didn't pay attention to because I was busy double checking my sometimes-not-very-reliable Nokia phone that it was not throwing a tantrum.

When the K1 students came on stage, I was beaming with pride when I saw my little girl. I thought she was only to do the introduction but to my surprise, she was actually the lead girl in the performance! Oh my god! I was so, so, so proud of her! She spoke well, sang well, and was totally at ease in front of the audience! After the song, she came up to me and "crowned" me.

Shelley couldn't make it to the celebration so I asked Shermaine to join me. She was happy to sit with Jaimie jie-jie.

After the performances and the little games, it's lunch time. It's a potluck party and I brought some cookies. Jaimie played host very well. She showed me where she showered, where she had her meals and even asked me to sit down as she knew I was the guest.

I took off the handmade crown from my head and had a close look. So, she drew a picture of us on the crown...

There were also 2 photo booths were the mommies and daughters took pictured. I think our picture was taken with Jaimie's teacher's camera. We'll wait for her to email us. This is Jaimie and her best friend in school, Denise. 2 lovely brides.

Here's the video of Jaimie's performance.

This event was really very special and I will remember it very dearly. And I am really happy that Jaimie has grown up to be what she is now.

Thank you, my love. You made me a very, very, very happy mommy.

Tai-tai In The Making

To be a taitai, you need to get use to hair washing in the salon. Heh heh heh.

Anyway, it was super super cheap. $7.80 to cut and wash. Cheaper than QB or EC Cut.

Mothers' Day Celebration 2011

I never liked the crowd on Mothers' Day in the restaurants and I dislike their overpriced set menus. So, I decided that we should celebrate earlier this year! We went to Beng Hiang Restaurant for lunch. Good Hokkien food but cannot say for the same for their service.

My mother-in-law busy with Kai Kai.

Me and my mommy.

Jaimie took this picture. :)

The 3rd mommy.

We had so much food! Luckily I ran my first 21km yesterday~ hopefully it helps~

I love family meals together like this. Happy Mother's Day to 妈妈,妈咪 and myself!!
