Meet Me on Monday- Party Season On

At A party

Last weekend the kids were invited to a birthday party. It has been awhile since they have attended one and were glad to be invited to my friends son’s 1st birthday bash.  1st birthdays are all so special. Even though the child is technically too young to remember or to enjoy his 1st birthday but it does bring back a lot of warm memories when one flips through the photo books to reminisce on the joyous occasion.

We only threw a first birthday party for Monkey boy when he turned one. For Doggie boy and Tiger girl we opted to bring them on a trip back to Hong Kong to celebrate with the relatives there instead. There wasn’t any fancy birthday party or programs specially chosen to mark their turning of age but we do have tons of photographs taken with relatives and friends who love them.

This April we are starting of the week with a whole week of giveaways here on Dominque’s Desk. I have already listed three giveaways- Eraselets, UGLEE pens and Therapon Skin Products. I will be adding more giveaways as the week progresses for all my beloved readers.
This week I am sharing a classic from one of the most outstanding Taiwanese Male Singer/Composer- Jay Chou

No I didn’t carry out any pranks or get pranked. It was a normal day for us.

It would be the Hello kitty and Thomas the train pasta which I bought to cook for the kids.

Having everything taken care for you and not have to worry.

 I can’t really think of any at the moment but I may add on R’s surname to mine.

Give me the drink.. Yes I want a sip of your Rootbeer!!


Last weekend  was a really  busy weekend for me. We weren’t running off bringing the kids to different places  but taking care of sick kids while planning for our upcoming June holidays.  The whole family is down with the cough as the weather has been bad lately. I’m hoping that everyone will recover soon and enjoy the next family trip where we all jet off to Korea.



This week I am sharing the video of one of the hottest male Hong Kong Singer- Eason Chan. Here is he singing one of his latest song in Cantonese- 六月飛霜 (June Frost). He won the Top 10 Song Award, Best Selling Male Artist Award, Best Singer of the Country Award and Outstanding Singer Award this year. 5 major awards!!
