Last year we have our first celebration at Ainsley’s school for her second birthday, She wasn’t well aware what’s going on. We bought a 2kg cake and about 28 set of gifts for her classmate. Her class has 4 teachers and 28 students that time. The cake has to be from Halal source thus we have limited choice of cake shop. She was crying when everyone singing her the birthday song. And her little classmate blow the candle unexpectedly for her. Well, she ate quite a lot cake.
This year we didn’t plan to celebrate at school since her new school is close for the PM session. The birthday celebration has to be on the pm session. So I decided to do a small celebration. I order some balloon for decoration, pre-order a cake and balloted the staff pass for visiting to the Zoo and River Safari
The night before her birthday, she doesnt want to sleep at all, keep saying she very fresh. Feel thousand time like knock her down, just saying. End up we can only start the decoration and completed by 2am. zzzzz. The balloons come with the pump, but still quite time consuming, as it is about 20 of them.
Wake up around 8am, best, all the balloons fell off. The glue dots isn’t sticky.
Hmmm.. fast hand fast leg do it again before my little princess. She was delighted seeing all the balloons decoration. Of course, must pose and take picture, She selected her mickey mouse clothes again for today outing,
Another round of preparation, by the time we reach the River Safari is already 10 plus. The taxi uncle is driving so slow, not raining nor jam at this hour, for godness sake.
We just need to scan the pass and gain entry to the river safari. It’s all sheltered pathway, good! Showcase different river animals and plants, quite interesting. Of course our main target is to see the pandas. The night before I was browsing their website, it was saying due to upgrading work only one of the panda is display.
We saw both Jia Jia and Kai Kai. Both busy eating bamboos and so funny that Kai Kai, just lay down sleep after finish his bamboo. They can eat up to 20kg of bamboo in a day, huge appetite ya. The whole area is air-conditioned , so cold.
We had our snack at the panda mama restaurant, with panda buns n cappuccino, cappuccino is nice, buns so so. Feel so cheated, $2.90 per bun. They having offer 4 for $8.80 for the buns. We bought using the staff pass, so entitled for 20% off. We didn’t try the river cruise as the weather is getting hot.
Next, we move over to the Zoo. Welcome us is the monkey and the peacock, one of the peacock fly up to the roof! And we had our lunch at Ah Meng restaurant, it’s crowded but still ok, there was no proper queue, definitely short handed, spend quite long time just to queue and buy for food. Only the nasi lemak nice, the rest doesn’t taste nice, dont even bother to snap photo.. haha.
We suppose to further explore zoo, but hearing thunder and start raining already. So we have no choice to ended our trip. Couldnt grab and the taxi queue is so long. We end up call up comfort. By the time reach home is already 3pm. Everybody nap after reach home.. so tire..
Evening we wake her up with birthday song n cake, she was happy with the cake but didn’t eat much cake, finish by the rest of us over the weekend. Her birthday gift was actually baby’s K birth gift, cuz the toy is for 3yo onwards. Toys have to be share =X
Happy 3 years old my dear Ainsley, please continue to be healthy and happy always!
You are big girl now, i hope you can toilet train soon and love your younger brother more.
