Cebu Stamp Club's youngest collector Jerald Kervin Uy celebrates his 8th birthday today, March 14, 2012. It's a unique day for him because this is the first time that his party will have a Chinese theme. We made sure that his costume, the house decors and the food live up to the theme.
Finding a Chinese costume for him was not easy. We had to go to different malls here in Cebu just to find the right fit, color and design. Lucky for us, we found just one left. We came out with 8 Chinese lanterns to accent the house as well as a red table cloth.
The show stopper was his Chinese-inspired double-layered chocolate cake in red color. The food were all Chinese which I cooked myself such as sweet and sour pork, chicken in oyster sauce, steam rice, spring rolls and Cantonese noodles with pork, chicken, shrimp, fish balls and vegetables, Cebu Stamp Club's Bob Uy took the time to cook a Chinese vegetable dish in cream of mushroom while Mark Uybengkee brought along some grilled chicken.
The guests were mostly family and close friends. As usual, Cebu Stamp Club Vice President Ricky Teves who is one of Kervin's godfather came together with his wife Linda. Later in the evening, Kervin wowed the guests with his song rendition of a Filipino song titled Dakilang Lahi (Great Race).
