birthday tradition

12th birthday
ps: my hairstyle's definitely improved since then! :)

Every family has their own tradition way in celebrating birthdays. What is yours? 

Growing up, my family was not big on birthday presents but mum always made sure everyone had a birthday cake on their special day. There would also be some red tinted hard boiled eggs, coconut flavoured agar-agar (a vegetarian alternative to gelatine) and mum's yummy cooking. 

It was my birthday yesterday and I realised I have only celebrated my birthday with mum twice in nearly 20 years! I really miss her and the sweet little things she does for us. My fiancĂ© has finally taken on the tradition and did a wonderful job in making my day extra special. (Yes, darling. 10 out of 10!) I will definitely carry on this little tradition in our family.

Once again, thank you all for the lovely gifts and messages. I had a smashing time!
