With on-going renovation in the house, we decided to celebrate Micah’s birthday this year in a quiet way. We made sure, however, that we give our full attention to the little guy on the day with absolutely no schedule.

There is no better way to begin this special day than to meet with grandpapa and grandmama in Kuala Lumpur over Skype! Micah was warmly greeted by grandpa, grandma and aunty Sue Ching as he ate his breakfast. Then we headed to church for regular Sunday service. On the way back, we picked up the birthday cake from an European patisserie which we visit only on very special occasions.

Had the cake after a simple lunch at home (pictures below). After Micah’s afternoon nap, we bundled up and headed to a playground. We actually let Micah stayed for as long as he liked, for a change. After dinner, we went on Skype again, this time to meet with wai-kong and wai-puo, Micah’s maternal grandparents.

It was an intimate family day. Micah went to bed very calm and contented. For once, he was happy to retire for the day. There was no stalling, and therefore no reminder or persuasion needed. What a wonderful day, for all of us. Happy Birthday, dear Micah. What an amazing two years we have had, as we saw and experienced His Grace and Faithfulness in our family life. Praise You LORD, and to You be the glory…!

"Micah's lunch is all done. Waiting for Micah's birthday cake... . Mm..."

"Thomas the tank engine Birthday Cake! Thank you Wai-Kong and Wai Puo. Micah likes it!" (Gift from maternal grandparents)

"Lights...! Candle lights"

"Yay! Nice!"

"Picture with mommy."

"Micah is TWO YEARS OLD!!"


"Micah's blowing the candles... Ph...!"

"Another one..."

"Almost there...!"

One more picture of the cake before slicing it up!

"Thomas tank engine - Micah press, choo-choo!" (Right after that, Micah added, "It doesn't make any sound. It's a picture!")


"Hm, yummy!"

"LORD, ..."

PS. (mum writes) – Just as we were happily eating away, with a sparkle in his eyes and a big smile, Micah put his hands together and started praying and thanking God… (Probably embarrassed by the fact that we as parents had forgotten to pray for him, we couldn’t recall exactly what he said, other than the word “LORD” thrown in somewhere in his sentences). This picture was taken just as he started “praying”. Amazed and stunned, daddy and I looked at each other. “He is praying…!” I dropped the camera and joined daddy as he led us in a prayer of blessings for our precious cutie pie who turned TWO today…!

Wai-Kong playing "Happy Birthdy song" four times for Micah over Skype (on the violin, erhu, gu-chen, and piano).
