Sara's first birthday party

Whew! I survived Sara's first birthday party. Due to my kedekut thrifty nature, I ended up doing EVERYTHING myself. I did the goodie bag, the sugar cookies wrapped with clear plastics to put in the goodie bag, the thank you card, the birthday cake, the cupcake and the list just keeps going on and on...

We had a kenduri doa selamat in the morning and the birthday party in the evening so the amount of foods cooked is massive. Luckily, my in-laws and aunties came to help us with the preparation. Our kenduri menu consist of white rice, kari nangka, sambal tumis udang, pecal, ayam goreng berempah and pecal with all the condiments. On top of that, we also had pulut kuning with rendang, apam butter and watermelon. Our birthday menu is soto complete with bergedil and creamy chicken soup for the kids. Oh, we also rent the chocolate fountain and I made marshmallow and strawberry sticks.
My family and I have been cooking non-stop from Saturday. I made hundreds of apam butter and cupcakes and cakes. The cake was quite a challenge for me as it was my first time frosting such a large cake (I usually do cupcakes only). I was happy with the result. My sisters and cousin helped, of course.

I force put Sara to nap twice in the morning and after lunch and she was one happy kid. She mingles with other kids with an ease but she does seem reluctant to share her toys. She also has the ability to totally ignore people so she managed to hurt the feelings of a very sweet girl who was following her trying to give her presents.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that came and or all the lovely presents. Hope you guys had as much fun as we did :) And oh, we forgot to sing happy birthday to her.
