Dai Bee’s birthday is coming up, so Ah Lo and I got busy the last week to bake him his birthday cakes (2, one for his friends and one for the family). Yesterday (Friday) was the only day we have available. From birthday invitation to activities, he took the lead planning his own party with his friends. The party was very casual, no decorations, no special themes, no party favors, nothing fancy. Just his friends meeting up after school, shoot some hoops at the nearby park, then back home. A simple homemade dinner, a fun movie and a cake, were all it took for a fun party.

This is the first party where it dawn on me I really don’t need all that hoopla. I realized the boys had so much fun, just being around each other, joking around and that’s all that matters. Some of the boys had their guitar from school. So they played some songs to entertain the rest of the group. It was just that simple.

Today, celebrating with his cousins and my side of the family, was also fairly easy going. After dinner, we watched a chinese movie, and then cake.
