On Tuesday, JY baked a beautiful butter cake, iced it with buttercream and decorated it with cute little flowers and her signature ladybug for Swathy's surprise UPSR Party. The kids had fun showering her with confetti.
Shannon bought her a yellow(Swathy's favourite colour) t-shirt and made a banner.
Thanks Shannon for the party idea.
It is important to celebrate life's little victories.
Shannon dropped us off at Ikano after the party and JY headed straight for her clay project after a meal at Ikea. She planned to complete her orchids in time for her grandparents' wedding anniversary.
And she did it!

Thank you for coming all the way from Karak and preparing our all-time favourite Bak Kut Teh.
On Friday, JY wanted to bake a "I-am-Back" cake.
She took a 1 year leave from aikido and surprised me one day by saying that she has decided to continue with aikido.
Thanks to Facebook she has been in contact with Patrick sinsei and Colleen and they have asked her to visit them one friday during class as they miss her terribly. And that made her reconsider joining aikido all over again.
Here is a close up of the aikido bear. Her fingers are so nimble, it took her less than 10 minutes to complete it.
It has a blue belt just like its creator.
Now JY has got her Mama into helping her with her second clay project.
A behemoth of a project! 28 Joachim orchids!
She has taught her grandmother to roll on the clay onto a floral wire and prick it with the clay apparatus. Mama seems to enjoy it. I am glad.
