Isaac will be having 3 birthday parties this year. One for his school and childcare friends, one for family & friends and one quiet time with us on his birth date, 21 May tomorrow!
He had the first round of celebration last Sunday at Monkey Mania Top Ryde with his classmates and friends from childcare. We didn’t invite all 20kids in his class but asked for names from Isaac. I absolutely love this place after going to Jude’s party year at the same place. They have mini go-kart ride which Isaac enjoys so much and he did 2 rounds (for $5).
We picked the morning session at 10am (guests need to arrive by 9.30am) knowing that kids are in their best mood in the morning. All 10 kids turned up and Isaac was so happy to see not only his classmates but friends from childcare whom he grew up with. He never seen them since he left childcare in January. So it was very exciting to see the boys reunited.
We picked the pirate ship room cos we think the kids would like to eat in the ship.
Hot platters for adults which we ended up taking home.
Believe it or not, all his gifts are still unopened until today.. :)
I realised that western and asian people has a different expectation when it comes to kids’ party. The western style is a lot simple as I think the adults dont actually expect the host to provide adult foods. I have a few parents look a little surprised when we offered them food and drink. Where else with the asian style (my style), we like to provide as much food as possible so it’s enough for 2nd and 3rd round of food. Not only that, you are most welcome to take home any leftover food! They are clean of cos! No double dip or some sort.
