Delayed Entry – Thomas Themed Birthday

Just want to share the happy moments my family and friends had during Akmal Hakeem’s very first birthday.

Alhamdulillah, Akmal Hakeem bin Hasnizam turned ONE on 5th December 2011.  As my parents agreed, we did the kenduri at their house. I was quite satisfied with how things turned up. I had the Thomas birthday ticket,  did the banners (Happy Birthday & Akeem Turns 1), the Thomas cupcake toppers, the buffet arrangement and the best part was, we had the same badge –Birthday Conductor!

This time around, after discussing with the consultants (my dear sister and my dear friends) we decided not to have door gift for the kids. Still, i managed to get some blowouts and wisels for the kids.

the cakes was deliciously and beautifully made by K.Syima . We had Thomas birthday cake, butterfly cake for azfar-chan and the cuppies (free & eggless). yay!!!

Frankly, I can’t afford to have a lavish birthday bash for my sons. We cant afford to have one at a hotel nor have a few tents decorated by an event provider. but hey, who needs that? as long as my sons, my nephew and nieces are happy, im happy!!

It has been ages (yes, I really mean it) since I last post.  I was and still am busy. Alhamdulillah,  it is almost a year now but I can still recall perfectly every details of the 5th December 2010 🙂

As always, I will be very busy planning, drawing, jotting down every idea I have for Hakeem-chan birthday kenduri (I prefer to use Kenduri rather than party).  Menu, templates, invitation card, tshirts, iron-on photo…phew!! the list seems to be endless.  I would really love to have a simple and fun birthday celebrations for my children. Hopefully, I can manage their birthdays until… err.. let time tells.

Thanks to the internet, FB I easily can download templates, can share ideas, themes, birthday stuffs for theme. Thank you technology!!! Some blogs can really help us to plan our party as long as we have that Bank Negara note with us. hehehehe 😉
