A month before the party, my aunt asked if I was free to make a cake for my cousin’s 21st birthday party. Since Les is still serving NS (National Service) and he’s been posted to the Navy, she thought of having a navy themed cake!
My cousin and I were born in the same year, months apart and much of my childhood was spent growing up in his house.
I recall boxes and boxes of board games — I learnt to play Monopoly, guess who?, Cluedo, battleship, throw a basketball, play WWF on playstation (I would complain endlessly on how I’d get trashed all the time..), learnt to ride a bike, kick a soccer ball…
Of course I had my fair share of fun when we played at my place *inserts evil smile*
The party was held at Keppel Club and the cake fed close to 80 people. I made extra mini cheesecakes just in case cause you can never have too much cake. Or dessert. 🙂
Family Portrait. Sort of.
My dad stubbornly refused to get into the picture — I think he said something on the lines of the camera breaking if he was caught on film. Anyway..
“Aiyoh, why make wish so long one??”
Camera Man: Okay, can you pretend to blow the candles?
I cracked up when I found this picture — I kinda meant for the figurine to look like a guy in Navy uniform.
I guess he doubt the resemblance, hahaha.
As usual, I’m the happiest when the cake’s butchered 😉
Me thinks Mr Navy Dude agrees 😉
