A Monster Birthday



More pics:


As usual, I am absolutely knackered after a holiday and an event at my house. Not going to report much except for the fact that everything went smoothly alhamdulillah although for all the work I put in painting the banner for the party, my husband forgot to put it up and I was too busy in the kitchen to notice. And so, the next morning, my husband said we should have our own birthday celebration with whatever's left of the cake but this time, with the banner hung up. And so..


And yes, as for the menu on the day of the party, I made lasagne, nasi lemak (to be eaten with:) rendang ayam, ayam goreng and all the normal stuff that goes with nasi lemak, and also I made mi hailam, koniyaku jelly, some pudding - to be eaten with some fruit cocktail and custard sauce, apam cantik manis and of course, the birthday cake. By the end of the day - almost everything was wiped clean, including food brought over by friends i.e. some pasta and roti jala. (Thank you, girlfriends!)


I also would like to thank everyone who came and sent/brought gifts for the birthday boy. You all made both the boys very happy indeed with all those thoughtful presents. Thank you, again.

wat happened to charlie & lola??? but the monster cake looked really awesome! I particularly ike the mouth with Hamzah's name in it - it looks like the monster's teeth and at the same time like the monster is saying, "Hamzah!!!" ;)

Btw, who ate the tail??? ;D

It's a Charlie and Lola monster cake :D from the website www.charlieandlola.com. I just made the feet and tail from memory - didn't check the website to be exact but there were no complaints. By the end of the day, the end of the tail was missing and only 1 foot /leg was left.

Alhmdllh the cake menjadi and all the kids loved it.

Ibah --> Amazing cake!!! If I were Hamzah, I'd be smiling the whole day..

Happy birthday, honey...

flowerin: The yellow part were almond slices - I couldn't make the sides nice and smooth so had to cover with something - thank god had a packet of those stuff unopened from last raya! I just stuck them onto the sides one by one to look like scales and some of it I made sure to stick out so that they look 'sharp and dangerous' like..ha ha ha..

dilla: Thanks..and yes, Hamzah was very happy with his cake..just like his mom.

very lovely cake there, ibah! could very well see that hamzah was ecstatic about the cake. good job mummy!

btw, it's out of context but hearing hasan speaking on youtube makes me miss the good old days when zareef would chatter non-stop in good solid bbc english. skarang dah hilang. pls make sure that hasan doesn't loses his. sayang gitu!

Noresh: Thanks a lot - yes, you can really see fr the video tht he was very happy he he. As for losing his accent - I'm not really fussed about that :) As long as his grammar is correct, I'm good.. :)
