One of the joys of being a mother is the capacity to provide and take care of the important moment in our kids life. It was always a pleasure to do things for my kids even if it means exchanging my sleeping time or what-not just to make sure things are in order.
Two weeks ago my daughter celebrated her birthday and as a party-planner-kind-of-person I organized and planned her birthday party. The theme was Dora Birthday Fiesta. It's just a small party in our place with few invited friends and relatives here in Singapore (as all of them are Filipinos). I prepared and cooked all Filipino foods like, binagoongang-baboy (pork cooked in salted fish), chicken lollipop, chopsuey, buttered shrimp with corn & carrots, lumpiang shanghai (spring roll), spaghetti and buttered-cheese puto. I also prepared our chocolate fountain with some dips like marshmallows, strawberries and bread sticks. Complimented with do-it-yourself Dora goodie bags for kids-guests.
And of course birthday celebration will not be complete if there is no cake. As for the cake I baked and prepared a chocolate marble fondant cake. My husband also helped in decorating. We decorated it with a fondant stars. And so I called it "stary-stary chocolate marble fondant cake". Aside from that I also baked red velvet cupcakes with chocolate and cream cheese frosting. It was tiring but yet a fulfilling activity.
Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.
