When I asked my littlest one whether he preferred to go somewhere special or to buy a toy for his birthday, he wanted a toy without hesitation. And thus, we set off to Kiddy Palace to get his present and replace his broken shoes by the way. But first, we needed to settle our lunch where Joram had his favourite smiley-face potato from Yoshinoya.

Joram was really picky when it came to buying his shoes. He wanted green ones but they did not carry his small size for those. Then, he wanted one with blinking lights, but he found them too uncomfortable. After that, he was interested the squeaky shoes but the largest available were too tight for him. Finally, he decided upon the minions crocs. It was far easier getting his present, thankfully. It took him all but 5 minutes to zoom in on the Leapfrog educational laptop. He had all along been eyeing on his older brother's blue one which has spoilt recently. Great timing!

We went Baskin Robbins for his birthday cake and he chose the one with the soccer ball theme, very likely because it had his favourite colour green and, of course, the soccer ball. However, he realised he didn't like the taste of the green "grass" (icing) in the end! Haha... Like his older brother, he loves the vanilla flavour. And what birthday celebration in our family is complete without a helium balloon? :P

We chanced upon these cute old-school TV keychains which light up with static sound effects when you press the channel buttons. Might as well buy one for each kiddo. Hee... Couldn't find a green one for Joram though, so he had to make do with the black one. Poor boy. But he quickly forgot about his disappointment as he kept pressing the buttons all the way home. LOL Blessed birthday, Joram! May God continue to help you be the most obedient and mild-mannered child in the family.
