I'm such a bad blogger these days and I would also say, quite a bad mommy. Ada ke patut, bday SN jr yang ke 2 tahun dah celebrate 3 bulan lepas...hari ni baru nak update? Hari ni ada masa nak update blog bersawang berhabuk ni sebab start minggu lepas duk pulun ganti posa sebelum bersalin, so ada masa sikit masa lunch break untuk update blog so let's do it bebeh!.
Oh btw, sebab SN jr dah nak dapat adik lagi 3 bulan..so kita tukar nickname jadi Bangchik SN pulak wokeh. Cenggitu lah mommy ko ni nak, dulu2 Abg SN kita panggil Baby SN, so SN jr pon kita tukor lerr panggil Bangchik SN pulak; harap maklum.
Bangchik SN was born on 17th Oct 2012 but we celebrated his 2nd birthday with family and friends on 25th Oct 2015 at Bangi. Why Bangi? Since most of our family and friends lives in Klang valley, we decided it will be much easier if we celebrate it at our small apartment in Bangi.

I made the invitation card by editing cards from online.
As usual I ordered some customized party decorations e.g. custom word banner, custom cut stickers, cake banner and party hats from Sweet Almiraz. Its really easy to deal with her, plus we've known each other for few years through this blogging-FB-IG-whatapps world, so I will probably just deal with her on any customized decorations for any type of celebration. The theme for his 2nd birthday party is Transportation as Bangchik SN loves all sorts of vehicles.
As for the cake, I ordered Buttercake Orange Strawberry from Mamabisya Cake House. Alhamdulillah she manage to pull off the design that I asked her to do, and I am one happy customer.

I've also made some DIY photoprops for the guests...errr, or you might say for me and my selfie purposes :p.

And as for my own liking, I ordered super delicious Banoffee pie, Fruit Tart and Chocolate brownies from SaraRisya. Menu of the day were : Laksam (ordered from SIL's friends) and Nasi Daging with air asam which I cook it myself...fuhh *pat on my own shoulder*. Yang sedihnya, takde orang ambik gambar nasi yang I masak uwaaaa.

Goody bags were prepared for the adults and kids. Kids get aeroplane toys with some sweets while the adults gets kerepek inside their goody bags, kata duk Johor kan; haruslah goody bags di isi dengan kerepek ehehe.

It was pretty much just a simple makan2 with close family and friends. I couldn't invite many guest as it was just a small apartment but I think it is better this way as Bangchik SN couldn't really understand all the commotions that mommy had to go through with the preparation behind this celebration now. Maybe when he's a bit older, we'll make a bigger celebration for him.

You can see that Bangchik SN is not smiling in any of his pictures as the celebration was made during his afternoon nap time. Just imagine if mommy beria sambut birthday dia besar-besaran, end up dia bad mood je sebab mengantuk; kan ke rugi duit & tenaga mommy tu? Ngeee *cheapskate + lazy mommy*.
The party was held from 2-4 pm and we hurriedly has to tidy up all the mess before going back to Johor as Sunday is working day for mommy & daddy and school day for both SNs. He had another celebration with his friends back in his nursery where I've prepared another sets of 30 goody bags filled with toys car and some sweets. Cake pulak beli kat bakery nearby je..pilih yang ada sipi2 tema transportation kira boleh lah labu.

Happy 2nd birthday Bangchik SN. Mommy, Daddy & Abg SN loves you so much despite you being mommy's koala baby and ju-on baby. Stay manja as you are right now cause I know someday when you are all grown up, you wont be manja-ing with me anymore...sob sob sob.

Psssttt : Picking you up and cuddling you in my arms, looking into your eyes and being smitten by your cute charms. I wish I could hit the pause button in my life’s journey, so I could enjoy these beautiful moments in your company. Happy 2nd birthday Bangchik SN.
