Adam Turns 2 – Celebration with the Family

Since Adam hasn’t started school and doesn’t really have any friends, we decided not to have a party with lots of kids and had a little family gathering at my mum’s place instead. My wonderful mother prepared lontong, glutinous rice, fried bee hoon and even made tau huay, and I ordered some DIY popiah. My aunt also made some tau suan so we had lots of good food to eat that day!

(Point to note: don’t ever order popiah from Old Longhouse. They gave us the most horrible, tough factory-made popiah skin and the rest of the ingredients weren’t that great either. I had to get Adrian to swing by Queensway to get some proper popiah skin.)

We ordered the birthday cake from Pine Garden and while I really do love their chocolate orange cake, they used some crazy food colouring to make the cake red and it stained our hands, lips, mouth and even left a stain on the floor! Very scary!!
