Our Surprise for them .....

I mentioned earlier that i will be giving the boys a SURPRISE for their birthday this year! Well, it wasn't exactly one as i did told them earlier what i'm getting but hearing & seeing the real thing was somehow different i would say!!

Last year, we celebrated their 5th b'day at Megakidz and thought we would gave that a pass this year (as in having to do with all those invitations & etc). Instead, since it was their final year in the kindy, we thought why not let them celebrate with their classmates!! So MISSION was set (i.e. celebration in school), next was to set a GOAL, that is to get the boys as well as their friends
" to thrill with excitement " !!

After discussing with the principal, we chose the school's Party Day as the date so as not to interrupt any lesson!!
Both the boys as well as myself had been waiting for the day to arrive for weeks......only to be greeted with 2 sicked boys !!! Scot had the bad cough few days back & by the time it was celebration, Sean caught the bugs from his lil brother!! Thk god no fever though!
I was actually worried for the rest of kids there, who would have high tendency of bringing back the bugs....sorry guys....plans can't be changed !!
if u noticed that wet patch on sean's pant, it was the mark left after his vommit....yuck!!

Scot all GEARed up to go ......

See my BEN10 boys below, not just dressed up in the Ben10 shirt but together with his Omnitrix watch, SCOT was caught surrounded by the boys who got very curious with his watch !!!

And guess Sean just wasn't in the mood. Btw, i've got no idea how & why he ended up sitting around the girls.......ngek ngek ngek!!As it was a Party Day, the kids were encouraged to dress up in their party costumes as well as to bring some food to share with their friends!! Check out below the generous & kind parents of today....the amount of foods contributed were more than sufficient & literally saved the teachers from serving any food on that day!!

NOW, what's SEAN & SCOT's contribution on that day??
Wanna make a guess ???


OKAY la.....i opened clue, birthday ma........



How was that?? Would your kids get thrilled just as much as mine??
Which kid wouldn't heh .....

And yes, for those who has been following HER WORKS, i'm sure you could've recognised her already. It was the work of the talented, creative & cute dearie SU YIN !!
Her site has much better photos of the cakes !!
Arghh....isn't she awesome & a God sent talent??

I'm pretty sure anyone who has a cake made out of her hands on a birthday would certainly have a long lasted memory of the occassion!!
What i'm particularly impressed was not just the outcome of her production, it was her professional attitude, dedication, commitment to work that made her so outstanding....not forgetting despite such tender age of hers!! In fact, it made me 'reflect' a little of what made up of myself when i was her age......hahaha (obviously i was barely there yet)

After receiving my inquiry, Su almost instantly responded with a phone call. We spoke & i must admit that i was kinda surprise that she actually asked to 'meet' to discuss more details......well, am sure you would understand as it was after all only a 'cake-order'.
But as i had quite an expectation on the outcome of the cake plus lots of queries were running in my mind then, i thought to myself, it might be a good idea to meet & discuss things out!
So we met in my office and Su even gave me a rough sketch of the production......suddenly i giggled to myself....as if it was a 'big business' that we were dealing, hahaha.
But somehow, come to think of it, isn't this the kind of hospitality that we would expect out of today's service industry??? After our quick chat to finalize things up, Su & her partner Emily made their move & there i was left with full anticipation of the masterpiece!!

Now SU, be assured that the boys LOVE the cakes big time, both my huby & I were tremendously impressed, my sister & BIL were astonished, the teachers were amazed and the kids' chaos were a proved too!!
A Great Job & we appreciated the memories you left us !!

I'm not exactly sure if the boys were really giving a hard time to Emily with questions....haha

*** Here's one with their class teacher, Ms Estee ***

Once the cakes were ready, i felt that our (the parents) presence were somehow giving a little tense to the party atmosphere. So we decided that we should settled things off & let the kids enjoy the party without interference from the parents/adults!!
I quickly got the principal to say a few words & announce the birthday! And that's when the B'day Song was sang, followed by the candles blowing!! Had that recorded down.

(btw, i learnt a lesson too that day....*** The 9 Aliens *** but the kids still beat me in remembering these names, LOL)

When i went back an hour later to pick up the boys, it was dismissal time and i didn't get a chance to talk to the principal ! I actually wanted to check out if there was really nothing left over from the cakes........ haha so 'kiasu'....... yalor coz i haven't got d chance to taste it leh !!!

Since the principal didn't caught up with me, i thought it must have gone finished. I asked the boys if all the cakes were finished and they said teacher kept the 2 omnitrix watch cakes!! I was puzzled & regretted that i didn't grabbed a piece with me before i left so that i could at least taste it .....I left with dissapointment!

That afternoon, we had our lunch at 1U and that's when i received a call from the principal asking if i would like to take back the 'sugar dough' base of BEN....even the teacher also mentioned that i should keep it....for more photography or share with family members!! And she also informed that she has kept the 2 bigger watch cakes as the children were more interested with the elaborated cupcakes!! Deep beneath me, i was so delighted with that information & without any hesitation, i said yes, i'll be dropping by to collect them.........yippee!!

Yes, in the end i got to taste your cake, SU!
There isn't a single doubt in giving you a good rating over the TASTE of the cake.

After having his first bite, my 'nasty lou kung' even extended out his hand with the piece of cake close to my vision trying to tell me how a moist & fluffy cake should look & taste as he used to complaint that the cake i baked was too dry (hey how could he compared me to a prof, rite??!!)

Here a nice shot with this young enterpreneur!!

During the weekend, the boys cough episode left them with loads of phlegm and so they had the nuberliser session at night in the clinic!! The baby next door who was also on nuberliser was wailing at the top of his lung but my silly boys thought that the session was fun .....
aikk, sot chor !!!

Finally, i ended the post with a video of the birthday song singing session by Sean's & Scot's schoolmates !!!

My son is really crazy over the Ben 10 cuppies but i like to check with you how much did u pay for them? Just to make sure if it fits my budget before promising him.


Health Freak Mommy said...

Wow, what lovely cakes! Your twin boys are handsome... sure heartbreakers next time!

LZmommy said...

Oh dear! I'm so late wishing your TWINS a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I think my boy would drool over the BEN10 cake!

Jacss said...

I wana take this opportunity to THANK everyone for my boys' birthday well wishes ....even if it's late one, it's fine lzmummy!!

And i absolutely agreed that all of your kids out there esp. boys would be thrilled with excitement seeing such lovely BEN10 creations!!

Btw, my boys cough had fully recovered by now & they are as active as the 'cow' now....

For the question by anonymous, i would like to keep the pricing / quotes of the cakes back to SU as different requiremt & needs would hv diff prices, so it would only be fair to get them from SU directly. I'd given all the link required to do that so do feel free to contact SU if u r interested yeah....!!
