Grace's Birthday Final Part - Episode 2

Wow....I've abandoned my blog for the longest time....year end is always so very busy....I'm not quite done with Grace's birthday as yet....

And so...after our breakfast, we went home for a much needed rest and nap....

In the evening, we head on to TGI Fridays for a birthday dinner....and a little surprise for the little girl....when ordering our food, I told the waitress that we are celebrating Grace's birthday and wanted them to celebrate it TGIF's way....and for that we get a Friday's Sundae on the house....

And so we let the little girl ordered whatever she wants and then we eat....

After which, the crew came out with the sundae all lit up with a candle....and while Grace is anticipating them to sing for her.....she was asked to stand up (on the chair) and sing a song.....hmmm....now that's a surprise for her....

Later when went to Toys R Us....to pick up a present for Grace (this is from her grandma 奶奶)...what else can a princess like Grace pick?.....barbie dolls off course...and yes, she also picked a set of barbie doll when her uncle (my brother) took her shopping for her present....

So...here's the last bit of her 5th Birthday in photos....

Here's the very pretty birthday girl

Grace's Birthday Final Part - Episode 1

So how did we ended up celebrating her birthday on the actual day?.....

Well...it all started very early on Saturday (26th Nov)....intended to start it at 5.30am but as "mom-the-alarm-clock" couldn't wake up...it started at 6.30am.....both girls skipped their morning bath...too early....and someone...yes...someone even accidentally skipped brushing her teeth.....hehehee....must be too excited..

Where did we head to?....."The hills are alive....in the sound of music...."err....got a little side-tracked there.....we head on to the Penang Hill...and since it was a school holiday here in Malaysia plus it was a long weekend, and being very kiasu (how can we not?...we just don't want out kids to get sandwiched....) we went early to beat the crowd....

It was a great experience for the girls to be on the new funicular train up the hill....we had small walks there...and someone complained that her little feet are tired...and since there was no food found on the hill...we head back down after about 1 hour....and went to our favorite (more of like the girls' fav) Starbucks outlet for breakfast....

Notice the episode 1 on the blog title?....yes...there's more for the little girl....

In the meantime...here's some photos on the hills....
