Time really flies… One year has passed and WE have survived this year as new parents. The process of learning about parenthood is definitely not easy and now we have entered the stage of learning about parenting.
The new challenge now is no longer just about whether we know how to bath or feed Jamie. We now need to learn and to standardize the discipline methods for Jamie. We need to provide even more for Jamie physically, emotionally, spiritually and academically…
Jamie’s Birthday Party on 6th Nov 2010 was a great success.
It was raining since late afternoon but my guests did not disappoint me. I really appreciate their time and effort in making their way down to the FAR EAST Aloha Loyang on a raining day. I am really really touched by everyone of them who attended Jamie’s Birthday Party…
However, I still have to apologise for:
1. Not having enough time for any group of friends, as I was very busy running around receiving and sending off my guests. But I tried as much as possible, esp during cake cutting to take photos with all my guests. However, I think I still missed out a number of friends 😦 So Sorry about it 😦
2. It was only later then I realised the guests who came after 8.30pm did not have much food left. I feel really bad about it. I was quite confident there would definitely be food leftover at the end of the day because a number of guests only made known to us about their absence after I confirmed the number of pax with the caterer, hence I was unable to make further reduction to my order. However, despite the 20-30 absentees, the second serving of food had to be topped up earlier than expected. Sighh.. I am really sorry about what happened.
And because of that, I told myself that I may not organise such big scale events in years to come. And I have intention of organising small groups of quality catch up session with each group of friends instead.
Nevertheless, it was a good experience and I enjoyed myself a lot throughout the planning and preparation for the party. But of coz at the same time, I was really stressed too. But thank you my hubby for always supporting my crazy ideas 😀
Take a look at some photos taken on that day. For more photos, kindly browse from my facebook account 😀
Oh ya, because it was a very special occasion when my grandma-in-law birthday happened to be very near Jamie’s birthday, hence we decided to celebrate grandma-in-law’s birthday during Jamie’s cake cutting session too. This additional event had made Jamie’s birthday even more memorable and special…
Hereby I will like to thanks all my guests for attending Jamie’s first year birthday and for all the thoughtful presents too! Jamie really loves them all 🙂 Thanks so much 🙂
