Aina’s Birthday Picnic

aina's birthday picnic 2012

This year, Aina’s birthday falls on Saturday. So we decided to throw a bit of a party. A picnic party, so that it’s more fun rather than just hanging out at our house. We invited our friends to meet up at the Bukit Timah part of the Botanic Gardens (It’s reachable by MRT, so it’s easy for everyone, with or without cars) and sat on the grass while the kids ran around the gardens blowing bubbles and playing with balls.

For fun, we sew a handmade goodie bag a few days before the actual picnic. This way, Aina can help preparing the picnic. We fill in the bags with cute erasers and pens, soap bubbles to use in the park and some chocolate coins.

The tricky part was the cake. Aina wanted to have the whole singing-candle-blowing-thing with a cake. With Singapore weather, it’s pretty impossible to bring cake to an outdoor picnic without a cooler. So we ended up buying a cooler. And since we had a cooler, we decided to go for an ice cream cake… It’s nice to munch on an ice cream cake on a hot picnic day, right?

She also wanted to wear a princessy dress. But I had to convince her that it would be too hot and inconvenient to wear princessy dress and have a fun picnic. So, we settled with her normal dress and a pink tiara.

We also brought picnic blanket, snacks like nuts and crackers, lots of drink (water, tea, etc) and ice, and of course, beach balls. some friends brought along frisbees and a dog :)

So, thank you for everyone who came… Aina said she had an awesome time. We started the picnic around 3-ish (arrived a bit late, thanks to Mae and Andy for reserving the best seat in the house!) and we left the park after dark, which means that it was a success that everyone stayed that long.

    Seruuu… Alternatif yang lebih menarik daripada pesta ulang taun di resto fast food :p Tapi kalo ngadain ginian di Surabaya, di mana ya? Terancam harus sewa tenda ber-AC juga kali nih gue, soalnya di sini panas banget hahaha…

    1. July 23, 2012 at 10:54 pm

      disini juga panas, ty! kuncinya: dulu2an nyari pohon gede… hihihi. ini juga kebetulan sih dapet spot yang teduuuuh banget.

    happy birthday Aina! surely you all had so much fun :)

    pengen nyoba, kira- kira di Jakarta seperti Taman Suropati bisa ga ya ?

    1. July 25, 2012 at 10:52 pm

      iya ya, taman suropati kan teduh gitu. dicoba aja hon! lagian kalo ternyata ga enak kan tinggal pulang… nothing to lose, dan kalo ternyata enak, bisa sering2 :)
