Di Di turned 2 years old. His teachers in school celebrated his birthday with his group of friends in class. Di Di was the youngest one in class. We did not celebrate on his actual day as the school has allocated time slot for us within the birthday month to come down to celebrate Di Di’s birthday with his teachers and friends.
It is the school’s tradition that each birthday boy will hold a globe and walked one round, months of the year, January to December will be placed around in one circle. The birthday boy will walk around the circle and the number of times depending on his age. Di Di turned 2 years and he will walk around the circle 2 times.

While Ms Fiona was cutting the cake, we were quite amazed that Di Di was so independent, he went to pick up the items to lay the table.
We were very impressed with Di Di.
It is the School’s tradition for the birthday child to serve the cake to all the children in the class.
When Ms Fiona asked Di Di to take the cake and give it to each of his classmate. He did it so happily. He will wait for Ms Fiona to cut the cake and for her instruction to give the cake to which student. He will then happily take the cake and give to each of his friend. He did it all cheerfully. Each time he will hand the cake to his friend and said okay happily when he has done. He will quickly go back to Ms Fiona and waited patiently for her to cut the cake. We were so amazed by Di Di’s independence and he is always so cheerful. He does not look like a 2 years old boy. Ms Fiona told us that Di Di is actually quite independent in school and he can do a lot of things on his own.
The highlight moment came when Ms Fiona asked Gor Gor to sit down and Di Di will serve him the cake. Di Di happily went to give Gor Gor the cake and he proceed to pat Gor Gor’s head. We were so surprised and Gor Gor was touched.
