Father's 73th birthday

Received mum's call in the office informing me that for everyone conveniences we will be celebrating father's birthday on Sunday, 25th April 2010 instead of on his actual birthday on Wednesday, 28th April 2010 (the 15th day of March in the Chinese Lunar Calendar).

To gather everyone is something not easy to do especially each and everyone of us have got our own ideas on how to make the occasion different as compare to the previous years.

We were planning to bring father to try German cuisine but mum did not like the idea rather she prefer to have spicy barbecue fish at one of the shop they have been for two times before, both father and herself really like the dishes there, the dinner was set on Wednesday which I intended to join them.

However, the next day, big sister suggested that it's better to have a potluck dinner at her home since both of our parents have not been there for quite a while. After a few phone calls to other siblings, we all agreed to her idea and there we were birthday dinner at big sister's home.

I baked a cake, suppose to be a green tea cake but I have to control on the amount of green tea powder for the cake for the sack of the kids.

Crystal came to the kitchen while I was almost done with the cake, like usual she always wants to help out.

The cake is done
Sis and sis in law coincidentally prepared french fried, ended up we got lots of french fries to munch before dinner.
Chicken with potatoes and tomatoes prepared by Albert & Shirly. They boiled a pot of nice soup too but I forgot to take a photo of it.
Clet's idea to bring mee as a it's symbolizes longevity. I am not good at cooking delicious mee so we tapau from the shop near sis's house.

Mixed vegetable by big sister
Meat balls and nuggets brought in by Catherine
Sweet and sour pork leg prepared by big sister, it is a special recipe from my mum.

getting ready for dinner
Big brother & family not in the picture. They brought parents to an exotic dinner the next day, they had crocodile meat. Crocodile meat is believed to be good for people who suffer from asthma, just nice for father.
Anneliese and Ensond both wanted to blow the candles
