Happy 3rd birthday, Melissa!

Three candles this year!

Three candles this year!

Today’s our niece, Melissa’s third birthday! We had a simple celebration at home on Sunday. See how excited she is! She can’t wait to cut the cake she’d picked out herself.

Posing in her new dress!

Hubby and I bought her this dress. I picked it out, of course. Doesn’t she look absolutely adorable? And she obviously loves it!

Dinner was prepared by mom-in-law and me. Someone had gifted mom-in-law some canned top shell, which she had no idea what to do with. So I made a Thai-style sweet chilli dressing to jazz up the bland and rubbery top shell, and turned it into a fruit-based cold appetizer.

Sis-in-law (Melissa’s mommy) asked me to fry yee-fu noodles.

I also stir-fried cauliflower with broccoli, mushroom, baby corn, and bell pepper. The veggies and noodles don’t look so good because I cooked them earlier at home, and were later reheated at mom-in-law’s home.

Melissa picked out the cake herself. It’s actually a romance-themed cake! Well, guess she was attracted to the stunning colors of the cake. Inside is chocolate sponge and cream mixed with crushed Oreo.

Melissa was so excited she didn’t even want her dinner; she just wanted to go straight to cutting her cake!

Happy birthday to you, Melissa!

    What a lovely entry and love that dress on her. I am from Hawaii and that dress print looked so much like Hawaiian print. My daughter used have a teacher from Singapore also name Khoo. Who taught at Alice Fong Yu School.

    Enjoy reading about food in Singapore and my nephew married to a Chinese Hoikenese from there.
