In one fell swoop, my mum settles all the birthdays.
With two in March – me and Dee – and three in April – KK, Day and Choon – it makes terrible health sense to buy five cakes.
So one big timsum lunch (Szechuan Court at Swissotel the Stamford, again) and one chocolate cake later, it’s all covered.
Kids-wise, while I might have had parties for them any other time (perhaps one for both Day and Dee), I don’t think I am up to it this year.
Health and happiness to us all!
Dee is petrified. Same candle problem.
