Gifts

Mum & dad came last week to attend my nephew's 2nd birthday which was held on last Saturday (26 Jun). How time flies. Just a blink of an eye, nephew JS is already celebrating his 2nd birthday.


Not forgetting of the dumpling festivals, mum prepared homemade yummylicious dumplings for us. Yummy ! ~ Mum learnt how to make Nyonya dumpling from a pure nyonya friend many years ago. Since then, she has been making 2 types of dumpling every year (the original meat & nyonya dumpling) for us to feast on.


As a doting grandparents, they even bought some sand arts for YX. RM2 per piece from the 2 dollar shop. With my help, YX had a fun time pouring the colourful sands onto the pictures.


The doting grandparents also bought some modelling clay for YX to play. He flatten those plasterstine and told me he is baking some pancakes for me. Awwww....so sweet.


.......and some designed rulers for YX to trace and draw.

With my help, YX created a Birthday card for nephew JS. Instead of the birthday boy, both my parents were so happy when they saw this card. Such a simple card can bring so much joy to both of them. They were amazed with what YX had done - write and draw. Hmm.....time to make something for the grandparents. ^_^

  7. Wow RM2 for a piece of sand art is very cheap! Does it comes with the sand too? The stationery shop that I always go here sells at RM3.90 for one.
