Early Birthday Celebration

On 20th September we had an early birthday celebration for Reese with family. Prior to this, Reese had been telling us this (In his exact words):

Reese: Soon, Reese 3 years old, mummy and daddy buy your (me) birthday cake with 3 big candles, balloons, party hats for Reese to wear, presents!

My boy sure knows what he want thanks to the cartoons he saw on birthdays! It was a simple celebration. We got him 3 helium balloons (RM6.40 each! crazy!), an ice cream cake and a clown cone from BR and we also got him 3 presents.

I wanted to cook chicken rice for the dinner but because it was the 1st day of Raya, almost everything was closed except a miserable green grocer and the pork section of the market! So I ended up cooking pork and vegetable dishes only but it was good. We had steam pork with salted fish, roast pork with vegetables, another vegetable dish, lotus soup cooked in pork bones and braised pork with eggs.... crazy huh? everything pork! :)

Reese was super excited on that day even though he was down with a bad runny nose. First he had a blast playing with the balloons and then started asking for birthday cake and presents! Gave him his party hat and he happily wore it. I tell you, he never like to wear anything on his head for longer than 2 minutes but he wore the party hat for more than 30 minutes that day. When it was time to sing the birthday song, he happily sat on the chair and eying the cake! Can't wait to blow the candles. After everything was over, he used his finger to eat the ice-cream... he was unstoppable! It was really fun watching him licking the ice cream cake. It was really finger licking good. Everyone was laughing but that didn't seems to bother him. :)

Opening the presents was also a first time experience for Reese. Well, at least first time opening presents on his own. Last two years he was too young to do that. Hehehe..

He got a fishing game, whack a mole game, binoculars a pirate ship and ang pows. He really had a good time playing his new toys and imagine having 4 grand parents fishing with him!

Thank you Ye ye, Ye Poh and Gong gong(s), Ama, Poh Poh for coming!

See how he is more interested in the cake than anything else?
