Baby Shower Party!

Our dear Julien officially turns 1 month old 2 Sundays ago. As with Chinese tradition, we hosted a baby shower (or should we say a massive FOUR parties) to thank all our relatives & friends for their generous gifts and kind wishes.

The schedule went clockwork like this….. Over 100 people came to our place over 1 weekend. Thank you guys for coming!!!

Round 1 Sat noon – Jared’s relatives (35 pax)

Round 2 Sat nite – Jerb’s relatives (35pax)

Round 3 Sun noon – Some of our church friends (30 pax)

Round 4 Sun nite – Our old-time friends (20 pax)

And a successful baby shower is certainly made up of these factors …….

1) Auspicious items like red eggs and Hainanese glutinous rice cakes (these were handmade by Jared’s aunt and were absolutely delicious!!!)

2) Food glorious Food (We decided to give the perennial favourite Neo Garden a miss and try out Kim’s Kitchen and PastaMania catering. Let’s just say we had no regrets. Delicious food and VERY generous quantities. Different food items for every single round of catering!

Jared and I will like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who attended Julien’s baby shower. Thank you for taking your precious time out to come and thank you for all your generous gifts and numerous angpows. We really feel very blessed. Special mention to 2 couples who have been especially generous towards us.

a) Juner & Kelvin – your generous gift of a Combi Miracle Turn stroller + Bumbo seat

Finally, thank God our son is healthy and good. We made it past 1 month after much getting used to our little boy’s waking patterns and constant hunger! :-D

I guess I should have split up my guests also. I was dashing everywhere like a mad man and some of my guest were left there alone for quite some time. I did about 100 guest in one sitting.

Come to think of it again...I will probably make it two sessions next time!

> San: We survived!

> Kelvin: But the cons for doing more sessions are more preparation, more cleaning and more socializing... so it's really more tiring!
