Happy cupcake to you!


hi there!

Here are the pics from a great evening we had last week! We celebrated our very good friend Lai-Yan’s b-day. Her real birthday was about 6 weeks ago, but we couldn’t find the time to celebrate it, because of our exams! We tried to have a surprise party, but that didn’t work out very well, as jade said something about it by accident to Lai-Yan and she immediately understood what was going on, but she was so kind to pretend she didn’t know (although she did help Elvi make the cupcakes for her own birthdayparty!)
They made cupcakes instead of a birthdaycake and put Happy Birthday candles on top op them. We were very glad with the result, as we all like colour a lot, they made the cupcakes pink and purple with all different sorts of topping on them. They had a lot of fun while making them and we they put A LOT of sugar in the topping, so they were very sweet! (but who doesn’t like sweet cupcakes?)

After eating cupcakes we gave her a lot of presents: a cute white lace H&M dress, earrings, hairclips and a lot of baking stuff. Then we played some games and most of the people left, except for Lai-Yan and us, Jade & Elvi. We spend another 2 hours painting our nails and you can see these nails tomorrow!!

Goodnight, sleep well!

The Party


Yesterday was Laura’s birthday! And this Monday we went out to celebrate! We got her a lovely pair of earrings, a beautiful bracelet (yes, all from Elvi’s mom’s store), a bottle of nail polish and bath pearls in all kinds of cute shapes! All the presents totally match her awesome new shoes (see post: Happy Anniversary). The nail polish is exactly the same color! First we– Well, actually, first we went to class but honestly, who cares. So anyway, first we (us, Lai Yan and birthday girl Laura) went to this adorable Mexican restaurant (El Sombrero) in Jade’s street where we had such a yummy diner, cocktail and dessert (thanks Laura!). We went to this restaurant after finishing our first year of sinology here too, and took our very first Tall and tiny picture there. We’ve taken some new pictures in front of the same wall! Don’t forget to check out Jade’s R2D2 skirt which she got for her birthday (thank you Nele!!). When we were about to pay the check, Laura held all of our money together in her hands and felt all rich, which was very cute, as you can see below. ^^ After that, we went to Laura’s place where we were asked to blow up 50 balloons for her! Omg… That’s A LOT of balloons! Lai Yan taught Jade how to tie a knot in your balloon once it’s all blown up. She can do it now, but also has a very sore finger… Then more people arrived and the party got started! It was super crowded in there, but so much fun! The atmosphere was really good. : ) After some fun hours there -including present time!- we went out into the city. And so last but not least we had some drinks at the Apero, which was also very nice. Jade was all happy because they were playing all of Gorillaz’ Demon Days album there. And so, can you can see in our pictures, it was a really great evening! We hope Laura enjoyed it too, love you!!
