I think I was keen to get out of the house 4 weeks post partum, so what better way than to organise a first month birthday celebration for bub? CK kindly allowed us to host the event at his house as it was bigger.
so... dyed some eggs red using a recipe i found online...
I only did 1 hard boiled egg per person, wasn't so sure how the red fresh eggs would go down, so decided to combine them with easter chocolate eggs (we were in easter period). i wanted them to be all red foil wrapped chocolate eggs (but they were sold in multi colors per pack), we couldn't find any red colored foil, so hubby bought these red paper streamers instead (which is incredibly hard to wrap around an egg). So gave some gold eggs mixed with the red eggs... (one needed to give an odd number of eggs for girls, and an even number of eggs for boys)
I baked a blueberry shortcake from my trusty baking book. Gave up trying to make ang koo kueh (they had to have the patterns for a girl and can be round and plain for a boy) -- sounded like a malaysian adaptation from the nyonya culture.
We did cut a short length of hair at the back.
