Superdad surprise birthday party.

Finally blogging about the surprise birthday party we threw for our dad!

When thinking of what to get our dad for his birthday, we suddenly came up with the wild idea of a surprise party instead! In my memory, my dad has never ever had a birthday party before, so we thought it'd be a really nice treat for him. And it was at about the right time too, as Jing would be back from Australia for a few weeks-- it would be really nice to celebrate his birthday with everyone present!

First task on-hand-- choose a theme. Surprisingly, this was one of the easiest part. We bounced a few ideas off each other, but somehow we felt the most strongly about a "Superdad" aka superhero theme. My dad has been the sole breadwinner of the family since my mom quit her job more than 10 years ago. He single-handedly sent 4 children overseas to pursue our tertiary education! And god knows it wasn't easy to bring up 3 girls (and a wife) who are vain and loves to shop HAHA. And he has just been this amazing rock in our lives. If he is not Superdad, what is he??!!

Second task, pick a venue. We decided to pick a family restaurant near to our family home so that it's easy to cheat my dad there. The plan is to say that the boy and I are organizing a BBQ at our condo, and for them to 'drop by' at the family restaurant to pick up 'lasagne' on the way wtf.

Third, guest list. This we assigned to our mom.

Photo time!

We put little superhero masks (made out of black felt) on helium balloons! They also have little superhero capes (also made of felt) to the back, haha.

Our dad had to put on a red cape the moment he arrived, haha.

He didn't look surprised at all!! Just a little dazed. Turns out he just woke up from a nap wtf. When we asked him whether he is happy, he said yes, but he is also a little sad 'cause he was looking forward to a BBQ, haha.

Ok daddy, we are arranging a BBQ for X'mas just for you! :P

Since it was mostly our parents' friends at the party, we had to find ways to entertain ourselves, haha.

But the poses got uglier and uglier...

Family photo!

And damn funny, my mom was bragging to all her friends that my brother looked so good in his all-red ensemble, and that he looks like Lee Hom. We had to set her straight and tell her that actually his inspiration is Him from Powerpuff girls:

By the way, my mom is really keen to renovate our family home in preparation for our tea ceremony next year! -_-|| And she is making me clear out my room in preparation for the renovation works early next year. So I have put up more stuff on Boudoir-Boudoir!
