Lonesome Town - Ricky Nelson

Thursdays. What usually happens on Thursdays? Nothing much actually. It has been a slow day at work with not many people buzzing me :D Its been a slower day here in our town. Warm and just very warm. Today is the last day of the Chinese New Year celebrations. After 15 days, i am sure we could all let our tummies have a little rest.

Lonesome Town is the song my papa's been listening to currently. He's been singing it over and over again these past few days.

My papa celebrated his 70th birthday last Sunday. My siblings were back and papa's siblings too. We had quite a big bash at the restaurant. We celebrated our uncle's 60th birthday and my nephew's 1st birthday plus a CNY gathering. We had a private room with 5 tables and karaoke and lots of "happy spirits". A lot of dancing and singing and howling. *LOL*

My dad didn't want a big bash as my mom is no longer around. But his siblings insisted that birthdays must be celebrated. We don't get to choose our families but families should always stick together through good times and bad.

Some things money cannot buy is family.

papa's cake

Here's the cake by Missy Nancy Chong. Missy Nancy Chong is a very famous baker in Ipoh my hometown. We always love to order her cake as its super dooper nice. Its just a simple butter marble cake with butter icing. But her cakes have stood the test of time. I had these cakes since i was a kid. Even royalties and big wigs love her simple cakes.

She just operates her business from her home. Her cakes looks the same. Same icing.. same colors all through the years. I requested for a green base this time as green is my papa's favourite color.

Missy Nancy's pretty old now. I saw her in the kitchen still icing the cakes just the way she did long time ago. She is a very nice lady. If you are in Ipoh, don't forget to order her cake. The nicest butter cake ever. I got a mighty big sweet tooth too.

all the cakes @ the party

We are a very "sweet" family. *LOL* The amount of sweetness in the cakes will last us a whole year.

Dommy didn't get any cake... as it was very sweet but when we came back from dinner, he had gone thru the extra bag of trash which was not in the bin and helped himself to some icing. Bad Dommy Bad.

Its all quiet here now at home. Everyone's gone back home to the city. We are back to lonesome town.
