About a year ago, I went to the Markham ribfest, unfortunately I missed the one this year which was 2 weeks ago and I would be very disappointed if I missed the Richmond Hill ribfest at Richmond Green Park. Though the size of this is smaller than the one in Markham but with 6 professional rib teams would be enough to fill our stomachs, after all, we could only try maybe a couple at a time :p We got there at about noon and the first thing I went for was a deep fried blooming onion because I hadn’t had one for soo long, of course I would not miss out the ribs and pulled pork 😀 Anyways, my pictures below would tell you the rest of the story 😀

Time ran by fast, little Emilie is already 3 years old and Grace and Simon decided to celebrate on the Easter weekend. I know it was a long day for them because they had to go to a Easter egg hunt thingie really early in the morning in Aurora. Anyways, I remember there were soo many kids at Emilie’s birthday party last year and it was giving me a headache. This year, not a lot of kids, which was a good thing because we could finally get to chat a little without kids running around like crazy :p Overall, it was a very fun night 😀

It was Valerie’s 1 year old birthday a couple weeks ago and I invited Rosanna, David and little Valerie to my basement studio to have some pictures taken. It was my very first time having a studio session with a 1 year old, it would have been a mess if I didn’t have any helpers there, so many thanks to Karen and little Marcus. They also brought their own babies toys and clothes to make this event happen, took David 4 rounds to get everything from the car so you pretty much have an idea how much preparation that was.
How hard it is to take photos for a 1 year old? Seriously, I thought it was easy but after the first 10 mins of the photo shoot, I realized there were a few issues that I wasn’t aware of, e.g. babies crawl super fast, they will not listen to you and super hard to get the right facial expression etc. And after 2 hrs of the photo shoot, 550 pictures were taken, everyone was exhausted, Valerie even felt asleep right after. Anyways, I finally got the time to pick out the right pictures for my facebook and blog, they actually turned out pretty good considering that was my first time :p

Valerie will be one year old in a few days and I was lucky enough to be invited to her early birthday party this family day weekend. A lot of the parents were invited, fortunately not many kids were there so I didn’t get any headaches and it was a total relief for me :p Poor David, Valerie’s dad is stuck at work in Montreal so he didn’t get to join us for the fun but thanks to modern technology, with video conferencing, he got to see all the action going on over the internet real time 😀 Anyways, we first had our awesome dinner, then it was time for the birthday cakes, one ice-cream cake and one mousse with little cartoon characters in them. Gift unwrapping was another big scene of the night and little Marcus was such a big help ripping all the gifts apart :p Seriously, I never thought a kid’s birthday party could be this fun :p

Everything started off slow on Christmas Day because of last night’s party – X’mas Eve 2011, went home at 430 this morning, woke up at around noon, grabbed something to eat from the fridge then started doing some laundry. Tried to relax as much as possible because I wasn’t sobered at 100% when I got up :p Anyways, Karen’s party started early for the kids mainly, me as an adult that don’t like to play with kids got there around 6 :p The party was awesome with the cutest kids Valerie and Emily, Grace, 福仔, 肥媽 and Simon were playing Mahjong upstairs, great food from 潮州館 @ Bayview and MajorMac., Karen made turkey and we even had a X’mas cake as dessert 😀 Simon and Marcus even dressed in Santa’s suits when they gave out presents to the kids, and of course, some didn’t have the patience opened theirs right away :p Thanks Karen and Simon for organizing this party, awesome night with plenty of laughters and joy for this year’s X’mas!!!
