Big brother baked this for the teachers. The real birthday is tomorrow.


Mom wrote the MATTHEW word while big brother #1 wrote the Happy Birthday. Big brother #2 said (to #1) “Man….your mom doesn’t know how to spell her son’s name. He has become May Yhew.”

Big brother said, “You see lah, later your brother (Matthew) get traumatised and forever has a fear of birthday cakes because people laughed at his name when he was six.”

Mom said, “Eh, shaddap ha, if not later you go and bake another cake baru tau.”


These are Mini M&M cupcakes. Mom used muffin paper cups to bake (thinking it is easier for kids to handle) but she realised each cupcake is too big for a six years old. She doesn’t want them puking in class due to overeating. So, she had to cut one cupcake into two and put in new cupcakes paper cup.

She said, “Don’t care lah….six years old only care about frosting on the cake.” BTW, the icing on top is made with non-dairy cream (can be bought only from baking shop) and not butter icing. Just in case people thinks mom is trying to create an obese generation.

Meanwhile, mom has ordered a huge 1.5kg lychee and longan cake from the bakery. I (Matthew lah) brought my gingerbread man toy to the bakery and told the uncle from Jenni Homemade Cakes I want a huge gingerbread man decoration. The auntie wanted to borrow the gingerbread man for a night so that they can copy the design. I said, “CANNOT, no one can have my gingerbread man!” So, auntie at the bakery shop use technology. She took a photo with her handphone. Thank God for technology.

The birthday is tomorrow but today is the last day of school, so mom let me celebrate first.
