How to Plan a Successful 70th Birthday Party for Mother.

The party went smooth or at least it looks well planned...

Arrived at the restaurant 1 hour earlier... asked for a dvd player... bought a S$30 10m av cable... hooked the cable from the dvd player to the larger tv screen near the vip table... now we have great sound and big video... invited mother out to greet guests so we can test our surprise video montage...

Guests trickled in... relatives, in-laws, neighbors... videography starts... that is I am the event videographer for the night... everyone invited turned up... actually only 4 tables...

Dinner begins with an thank you announcement by second sis and an invitation to watch mum' surprise video...

The audience watched with joy as the video showed mum's younger days photos progressing to the present day... some video speeches and song by her daughters and grandkids... the show ended with a loud applause...

10-course Dinner begins... peach buns, sharks fins, cold dish, steamed fish, braised duck, sea cucumber mushrooms, drunken prawns, longevity noodles, pumpkin paste...

Guests mingled... kids playes... time to hand out table gifts... mum personally handed out to each guest a red packet with a lottery ticket inside... kids get a pack of cereal...

The moment we have been waiting for... cake cutting time... kids lined up behind the cake each holding a tiny bouquet... the eldest grandkid was the last holding the biggest bouquet... it is a mahjong designed cake... the birthday music played... the cake rolled in the aisle... a line of 8 all kids shorter than the cake trolley followed behind... mum was delighted to see the mahjong cake... one by one the kids gave the bouquet to their grandma... she was just too happy... Then the eldest daughter gave a wrapped gift.

Group Photos with the cake... Cut cake... It’s a durian mahjong cake.
