Full Moon (Man Yue) is a Chinese custom that celebrates the baby's first month. Lukas' Poh-Poh (grandma), Gung-Gung (grandpa), Gu-Gu (aunt), Gu Fu (uncle) and Jie Jie (cus Sis) flew all the way from Sibu and his cus aunt flew from Kuching to celebrate God's goodness and faithfulness with us. We had a table booked at Tai Thong: Imperial City Restaurant in Cheras for a family dinner on the 6th. We were a bit late due to traffic jam and were so hungry that we actually forgot to take pictures of the food served.

Since my mom's house in KL can't accommodate many people at the same time so hubby and I decided to have an "open-house" on Sunday. I guess it was a good idea since we got to meet and catch up with friends and church members at a deeper level. The only drawback was that it was tiring.
The night before the full moon day my sis Binny and sis-in-law Jen Lin stayed up late to put up the balloons and the banner that I had handmade. Thank you both for helping out. Here are the busy beeee....s
Oh! my grandma who is 81 and little Phoebe (2 years old) also helped to blow the balloons.

The "open house" - our doors were opened from 12 PM till mid-night. Friends and family visited us and baby Lukas from as near as the same taman and as far as Kuching and Sibu. Thank you all for coming and participating in our joy.
In the evening we had planned a surprise birthday dinner for my mom as she was turning 50. It all went well. The guests were wonderful - my mom was thoroughly surprised - she had no idea of us cooking up something.
