DSC04629

nhmay’s 21st party— the first one in 2014

Babies of year 1993, Heads up! 
It’s finally our turn to hit the age of 21—- key to freedom.
Yes, we are officially an adult now. No more messing and fooling around. Time for big decisions— such as degree, career, bf/gf, engagement, marriage….. All our life decisions are piling up one by one. Burden. :/

This year as everyone is getting excited to attend 21st parties (also broke at the same time), I do not have such luxury as I am currently moving on to my next phase of life—- pursuing degree in University of Sydney.
Hence, I am quite pleased that I still get to attend two members of my Supercuties parties, and even be part of their party host/ event decorator (mostly handmade)/ make up artist.

For the first 21st birthday party I had attended: HWEEMAY KAYE’S

Date: Saturday, 4 January 2014
Theme: Black and yellow Kitties
Dress Code: Black (Birthday girl: Yellow, Host: Black or yellow or both)
Venue: NSRCC, Tanah Merah

Preparations had to be done before the day of the event. Decorations were done two weeks before.

The exterior of her party is the most BRILLIANT IDEA among all decorations.—- LED lights with hanging written cards.

Certainly, it was a night to remember.
We had lots of fun and it was a great start of the year.
The party was pretty much a success! *claps*

Next up, Dawn’s Polka dots and Stripes Party…. 🙂

On Another Island: Privé Café. Bakery.

DSC02017

A glimpse of the fine, night lights and swaying yachts on the peaceful sea.

Located on another island, Keppel bay island. There, lies a hidden gem by the name of Privé. 
Surrounded by nothing else except the nature reserve and cool breeze from the sea, such ambiance is only best described as B.L.I.S.S.

I chose to dine here for the Birthday Boy because its located on this fine, private island.

The FOOD 

  • Spicy Sausage Ragu Spaghetti— Arrabbiata sauced with three chillis, it is indeed spicy. I love the texture of the spaghetti, cooked just nice, QQ that is.
  • Club Sandwich– the sandwich that is most worthy to be in your stomach! There, this is good enough to express

The PRICE
For such ambiance and good food, I don’t mind paying the twenties. Well, typically, you are paying for the ambiance then the food. This is a private island, how much cheaper do you expect?!  GEEZ

The AMBIANCE

  • Love how it is situated at a private, surreal quiet place, away from the busy crowds and city life,  surrounded by sea water and a magnificent view of yachts and night lights from high rise buildings. Ahhh.. Life at its best moment.

Of course. every dinner have to end off with a photo together.

An additional art piece behind us—the bridge— which makes this place more than just the word ‘lovely’ can describe.
I will definitely revisit here again for their BRUNCH MENU.

AHOY! Sail Onboard a NAUTICAL-themed Party!

AHOY! Anchor designer cake— by afternoonsinthekitchen

20 October 2013, this date: it’s the big celebration for Jason as he turns 21 in exactly a weeks time!

Birthdays are always a joyous occasion to celebrate someone’s birth. It is an important annual date. The date that you Thank God and Your Mother for giving you life.

As for Jason, this is not just an ordinary birthday celebration, it is his 21st Birthday party—what’s more special? IT’s THEMED! NAUTICAL THEMED!!!!

And as co-host for his big day, I had planned all the decorations and sweets bar to ensure that they are all themed.
Also, his family and friends are all spontaneous enough to dress up accordingly.—RED, NAVY BLUE, WHITE AND STRIPES.

The FOOD

Besides the usual BBQ-ing, ‘cooking your own meat or chicken wings’, stinking yourself up with all the smoke from the black char coals, Buffet Catering is another option to go for.

Fortunate for Jason, his uncle does catering so all these delicious food are practically HOME-MADE by his mum, uncle and aunt.— starting from 7am!

At his door step, right there, stood the backdrop, firmly held by gold painted rope, which was capable in withstanding the strong and heavy rain that day.—- Solely Handcrafted
I am so proud of that anchor in the middle—- made out of Styrofoam, newspaper and toilet rolls. (especially out of <3)

And yes, the pictures turned out great!
Below are pictures of the Birthday boy with his family and friends 🙂

Despite the horrible, heavy weather, I am glad his birthday turns out to be successful. The numerous amount of unexpected guests…. On behalf of Jason, I thank you! 🙂

Now, I can’t wait to attend more birthdays and also my 21st birthday party which will happen in 2014!

S.Phie and Co. go Ita-liano at La Pizzaiola!

11 October 2013, that day when we gather after a long time to celebrate a joyous occasion.— dedicated solely to my dearest Mumsie, Sophie.
An occasion that I had missed out for the past 2 years. :/ 

DSC01353-001

IT’S HER BIRTHDAY!! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!
Look at her smiling widely as she is happy with our present to her! She can hang her beautiful bridal gown with it!

Two best vocals in the house~

Initial plan of going to Wimbly Lu was scraped off due to the overwhelming queue outside. MADD!
So, we went next door instead, La Pizzaiola— Italian restaurant that has a really funny waiter.

Burratina con Prosciutto Crudo

DSC01373-001

This ‘ball’ is actually a burrata cheese! Not an ice cream. Interesting eh?

It taste heavenly with the ham.

 

This appetiser is really odd yet interesting. Hence, we have no idea how to eat it except Sophie.

Sophie giving her ‘cooking class’ to us on –how-to-eat-the-parma-ham-salad. LOL !

There! Just roll it all up and put it in your mouth!

If I am not wrong, this is a Napoletana pizza.

Their specialty— Pizzoccheri Della Valtellina

As I mentioned above, I had never celebrated Sophie’s birthday.
Hence, I decided to put my heart into baking a customized cake for her with Fondant. (1st attempt with it)

and TA-DA!! *Thumbs up for appearance* 🙂 Birthday girl actually thought that I bought it from a bakery or the restaurant itself. LOL!

Nigel and Alex… Seriously -.-

DSC01405-001

From strangers to dancemates to crewmates to ex-crewmates to FRIENDS FOR ETERNITY. 

Yes, even though we don’t:

  • Meet up that often
  • Chill and talk cock as always
  • Train and dance and sing together on that platform where we are all shining stars
  • Grow fat together with supper after dance and many more..

    All these doesn’t matter, because we all knows that we are still friends forever. This is how social-networking works and I love how it gives me the chance to meet wonderful people around me.

DSC01412-001

Just cant help it but to flaunt the inside pink ombre colours of my cake! Success! Phew!
Guess my baking skills improved. Tee-hee ^^

DSC01415-001

I will share a tutorial of this cake on my next post. OR, you guys can always youtube or google to learn the easy way of whipping your own cake!

The FOOD 
Genuine taste of Italian food. My favourite was the cheese and parma ham. That, you must give it a try!

The PRICE
Average I suppose? The norm price that you pay for restaurant food. It’s pretty worth eating here. But my advice for those that eat alot, is you might not like it here as the food portion is rather small.

The AMBIANCE
Absolutely terrific! I like the wooden furniture and feel of the place, giving it a scent of homey feel. Also, located in a rather secluded area, surrounded by private housings. This place is indeed a gem found within! 

La Pizzaiola— Located Next to Wimbly Lu.
Note: THE FAT CAT HAS CLOSED DOWN.
