Mum's 80th birthday
My eldest brother wished to organised a birthday celebration for our mum. He planned everything in detailed.
He chose the Imperial Restaurant in Subang and ordered a special cake for the celebration.
It's a beautiful cake for the special occasion.
He even bought special red packets meant to be given together with the door gift.
A piece of RM5 note is put inside each packet.
The door gift consists of a fork,a spoon and a pair of chopsticks which is considered auspicious.
Mum wore her new blouse specially tailored for her big day.
Only closed relatives were invited. A total of 63 guests attended the event. Mum's birthday fell on the tenth day of the tenth month of the Chinese calendar which coincidentally fell on a Saturday.
My eldest sister flew from JB. My third sister took a bus from Singapore. My youngest sister flew from Penang. My second brother and his family flew from Penang too. My eldest, third and youngest brothers are from KL. My hubby drove my mum and I from Ipoh. My kids are from KL.
Mum's eldest brother's whole family drove from Seremban whereas her youngest brother's whole family are from KL.
Mum's godson with his wife came too from KL.
Mum's sister from Taiping couldn't make it as she's confined to a wheel chair. But her son's family attended.
My boy didn't join us as he's the stage master for an orchestra on that night. My eldest girl didn't join too as she's on a church trip oversea.
All in all, it was a very happy and joyous occasion for all of us especially mum.
Wishing mum a very happy and healthy birthday!
Many happy returns of the day!
