It's Noe's first birthday. We made a small celebration with neighbours and relatives.
This is Noe's birthday cake. Rani had to decorate it because we ordered the cake without allowing time to create custom decoration. So Rani rushed to National Library and borrowed book about cake decoration, and then dashed to Cold Storage to buy materials for royal icing. She made the blue royal icing and lay it on top of the cake, being inexperienced with cake decoration and all. And to complicate matters, the cake that Indi bought was a mango cake with jelly topping, which caused the royal icing to melt. So we had to blow the candle rapidly. Here's the picture (Photos courtesy of Judhi Prasetyo):
We then went to Esplanade to see Nial Djularso solo performance at the atrium. It was really great, he played Ismail Marzuki's pieces. Too bad the concert was too short, only half an hour.
Then I went to see Pat Metheny autograph session, where I met a lot of Indonesian jazz lovers. The esplanade ushers seems to have a difficult time in trying to keep the Indonesians in order.
