Daddy Lim turns 40 yday. The Government has welcomed him into the “Eldershield” insurance scheme. I have no idea how that works but I am sure that he is now classified as an “elderly” in the Government’s eyes. Poor thing, old man already.
I have foresight and celebrated his bday with him on Sunday evening; there was a big screw up yday. We had a nice dinner, which required us to work hard before we could tuck in.
We were too hungry and forgotten to take a picture of the hotpot before we attacked them.
After which, the kids were super eager to decorate his bday cake, much more than wanting to celebrate his bday. LOL. The cake didn't look very well but it was overflowing with the kids’ love…… and cream and icing as well.
Daddy Lim looking amused as he looked at the kids proudly smeared unrecognizable decorations on the cake. Haha.
There was so much icing and cream on that small little cake. Nevertheless, Happy Bday Pappy!
Part 2 of the celebration was cookie baking! Daddy Lim was happily watching TV as the kids rolled the dough. His only contribution was to sample them after they were freshly baked. These turned out tastier than the last batch. Good, I can reuse the recipe the next time.
We had planned to have a family dinner yday. Daddy Lim was on leave to bring MIL for a doctor visit at 1pm. With some time to spare in the morning, he went for trail before spending the ENTIRE afternoon waiting for the appointment. Apparently the hospital was short of doctors due to Christmas and they didn't get to see the doctor until 5pm in the evening when the appointment was at 1pm. In the end, the kids, Popo and I had a nice udon dinner to celebrate Daddy Lim’s bday without Daddy Lim. Haha. He had char kway teow as his bday dinner with MIL. I told Daddy Lim that the delay was probably bcos they were too nice patients, waiting quietly. The staff must have served the ones that made the most noise first to get those out of the doors – the unspoken universal law.
Happy bday bb. Pls stay healthy alwaya. Love you dip dip.
