Hello everybody, to start this post off, I would like to announce that –
I’m officially 23 !!! *cheers*
Last weekend, I have organised two birthday parties two days straight in a row, which is a little crazy considering how tight the schedule is. Anyways, let’s roll on with the pictures!
For the first day, my birthday was held at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Batu Ferringhi, Penang. I handpicked and customised for most of the items according to my liking. The theme was pink and white.
🌳DAY 1 (Garden Party)
📍 Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa (Penang)
🥤 beverage: @mystarbucks
🍦ice cream: @merryme_icecream
🚲 bicycle: @linkbike.my
First of all, a massive thank you to our venue sponsor Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa. It’s a place that reminds me of my childhood and has an endearing place in my heart. Rain Tree Garden fits the theme of a garden party like a glove, I can never imagine a more perfect venue than this. Picturesque seaview overlooking the m agnificent sunset hues? Perfection to the core!
When our guests enter to Rain Tree Garden as they walk down the stairway, they will be greeted by the pink and white balloons and beautiful floral arrangements on both sides of the stairway. A customised sparkling water with pink and purple edible flower petals will be served, along with a customised straw with MSKUAN’s name printed. The welcoming drink will also be served along with a customised handkerchief with the libra sign, the wordings MSKUAN and some flowers printed.
Once they reached the ground, the guests will be greeted by rows of Link Bikes for photo-taking purpose. Shoutout to Link Bike for sponsoring us! Then comes the massive libra sign made from the most glorious floral arrangement with the combination of pink and cream colours! It’s designed to be a staple where the guests can take photos at. Beside the huge libra sign, we have arranged our staff to hold 7 super massive helium balloons printed with the libra sign and the wordings MSKUAN in pink colour.
The concept of the seating is standing table. This is because we want our guests to be able to move freely to visit different booths and just enjoy themselves as opposed to feeling restricted to their seats. They can also walk around and mingle around with people while enjoying the beautiful scenery under the shade of the massive shady trees surrounding the venue. It is perfect as the trees have already act as a natural shelter for our guests.
For the eatery, I’m so honoured that we get to invite Starbucks to be part of our sponsors for the Penang birthday party! The drinks that we prepared for my guests is java chip, which is my all time favourite Starbucks drink.
For ice cream, we have Merry Me ice cream, which is very unique because they have included all sorts of local food as their ice cream flavour. One of my favourite is the Tao Fu Fah flavour. It has a really thick consistency and it tastes and smells sooo good, you guys need to try it.
Other than our sponsors, we also have other exciting plans prepared for our guests. Besides the buffet served to fill their tummies and customised fries holder that fits the theme, we also have a customised coconut cart decked in pink and white stripes to serve refreshing coconut drinks to complete the beachside starter pack. The coconut drinks are also engraved with the libra sign and the wordings MSKUAN, which is our main logo for the party.
Moving on to the entertainment part, we have a customised pink table tennis table for our guests to play and have fun. Table tennis is a sport that I used to represent my high school to play in competitions and it’s just cute to include at my birthday party.
We also have the game station which excites all of our guests! The rule of the game is to throw all the three little hoops into the hole by aiming it and you can walk away with our customised dolls or customised towels, all printed delicately with the libra sign and the wordings MSKUAN. They got so competitive and it was entertaining to see they’re enjoying themselves.
Furthermore, we also have our magician – Chet performing magic tricks for the audience. We also have a section for horse riding. I thought it was nice to include the horse because it was a retired racing horse that I’ve worked with last year for a client – Anna Sui for a photoshoot. We draped the customised pink towel over it just to add that extra fabulousness. Our guests can also sunbath and chill on the deck chair that’s covered in our customised pink towels as well.
Finally, it is the most exciting part, which is the huge swing underneath the tree! The huge swing is supported by huge blocks covered in faux green grass, built up and tear down with the cooperation of some of our family and close friends. Thank you so much for helping. We also screwed the pink wordings MSKUAN onto the top. The swing is sooo cool as it is huge enough to support my 3 tiers libra birthday cake.
My 3 tiers libra birthday cake is a customised design to fit the theme. It is filled with colourful flowers on the base, macarons at the second tier and raspberry flavoured cake on the top tier. They also have purple butterflies “flying around” my cake, topped with a golden libra sign at the top. The whole set up was perfect for the cake cutting ceremony and I was so happy that everyone get to be part of this joyous occasion.
An explosion of pink, fabulousness and love 💕
🛥DAY 2 (Yacht Party)
📍 Lady Phoebe, Royal Selangor Yacht Club (Klang)
🎈 balloons: @partywonderland
🧀 grazing table: @kejubycarmen
🎂 cake: @vonzcake
For the second birthday party, I decided to hold on the Lady Phoebe yacht at KL. The theme was blue and white.
Shoutout to our balloons and deco sponsor – @partywonderland! The balloon set up was so perfect, the blue, white, grey and silver colour scheme looks so aesthetically pleasing with the white yacht at the background.
Next, the grazing table by @kejubycarmen was a literal masterpiece! Other than the beautiful floral adornment as a centrepiece, the cheese and fruits were delicious to snack on as well. And it looks sooo aesthetically pleasing.
Finally, the spotlight of the yacht party – the absolutely dreamy libra cake from @vonzcake. The silver colour of the libra and moon looks so stunning against the midnight blue of the cake. The details are beyond amazing – the clouds, stardust and white flowers and petals !!! In love of how celestial it looks.

In a nutshell, all of this wouldn’t be possible without the immense support from people around me. Daddy helped me so much with building the huge deco for the swing that holds the libra cake, the customisation of the coconut cart and building the libra sign as well. They’ve helped me so much throughout the preparation and I feel so thankful to have my family as my pillar of strength who will always have my back!

Once again, thank you to my family and friends for coming to my birthday party! I’ve received all your lovely wishes and gifts. Thank you for making me feel so loved! Without your presence, it would mean nothing to me. I hope all of you had a great time there because I did enjoy preparing everything for you. Even though it was a little nerve wrecking to execute my ideas, seeing the outcome of it made everything worth it.
It was a blessed 23 birthday party indeed 🎂
