Family Movie Outing

It is nearing the end of the holidays and Ace says he will like to go watch movies as his birthday request.... So leh, his dad asked him what he wanted to watch.. He said he wanted to watch anime... and then dunno why ding and dong and ding and dong.. finally morning then kan cheong wanna book.. But leh, the movie he wants to watch is only shown at 9am in the morning and so we missed it already.

Then his dad says he saw dunno where say 11am got show.. so we all changed, hopped into the car, only to realize that that is tomorrow's schedule.. LOL

But since in the car, we made our way to the theatres lor.. and Ace decided instead tat we will watch DORAEMON ;) Hahaha...

Bought our tickets and he went to arcade to use up some credits...

I just watch lah.. He asked me to play candy crush for him and win more tickets on his behalf. I tell him win tickets should be secondary since those ticket presents are cheapo stuff you can buy. Most impt is you enjoy yourself:)

Ace's 12th Birthday Celebration

Ace is 12!

This year I guess to me is a special year.

I always thought that I only need to be responsible for my son till he turns 12.. now he is 12, he can start to learn to be responsible for himself!:)

Another special thing is the number 12 is special because it signifies and end of the first cycle of your life. And there are lots of big lessons you can learn from this year or conclude in this year which I feel will impact a child's life into the future. I am working hard to ensure that he will see and learn from me...  how to be a better person, a happier person who loves himself and herself and how to be a humane person that helps others.

Anyway, his birthday celebration is kept simple and minimal. For me, June has always been a month of blessings. It is the month I got attached to Max. It is the month we got married. It is also the month our son is born.

This year, due to some personal challenges at the backend for me, I am really glad that that there is the reminder of Ace's birth that I can be thankful for and that there are things worth celebrating still. :) He is the gift from heaven that I will always treasure.

Anyway, his birthday celebration started one week early with Annie godma bringing him out for a Jap lunch:)
Then we took a bus to Kino and he was given $100 budget to buy any book he likes. Mr Calculative hor, even calculated in the 20% discount his godma will get because of her membership there... Bought $99.10 worth of stuff lor... Godma gave one more ang pow to me too.. shi shang zhi you godma hao..

He and his stash of comics Godma Annie bought for him:) Haha..

Then of course must celebrate with family mah...

Went to Popo house to celebrate...

 Started his day with his fav breakfast.. CCF and yellow noodles with CCF sauce:)

 Playing games with his cousin..

 Watching his fav anime..

 And of cos must have cake lah:)

 Blow candle and cut cake need to so drama or not?  ;)

 Present from Ah Yee and even a card Cay made for him!

 Cay even drew Ace's fav pokemons..

 His dream came true.. Ah Yee bought him lots of coloured pens and magic ink to colour his anime drawings..

 And also Anime.. Detective Konan.. he fell in love with the story and loved it so much he bought a chinese version of it so I CAN READ TO HIM.. LOL

Then we went to celebrate with a jap buffet:)

 Birthday he gets his smartphone back for a day.. so he whole day from morning till evening diam diam on the phone.. LOL

 The father also diam diam on the phone... Me? I just eat and take photo:) hahahah

There was also a celebration in Nainai house..

He gave me the ang pows for safe keeping but kept part of the money in them.

NExt two weeks his tuition teacher told me he diam diam buy unhealthy sweet foods to eat at tuition. He said he used the ang pow money gong gong gave him for birthday because Gonggong passe dhim the ang pow with the "instruction" "哪去买东西吃“... LOL

Anyway, Fayth jie jie and Megan Godma also bought him a anime book and how to draw anime book..

 Ganma Karen treated him to a jap dinner and Godpa ZG brought him to KIno to choose some stuff. He bought some outline pens, a new sketch book, an anime book and a book that taught him how to draw anime as well.

What an abundant birthday! May Ace continue to grow and shine in the coming years!
