Family Celebration : A big day for Thomas

Last Sunday was a big day for our family.  It was the day my son, Thomas was Baptised.

My son was definitely a star on the day.  He didn't cry during the ceremony and most importantly didn't cry when he was getting baptised with the holy water.  I think he knew the significance of the moment and was quietly taking it all in.

The star of the feast was the lechon.(whole suckling pig).  I was so excited about eating this.  When dad walked through the door carrying the pig there were lots of "oooh" and "aaahh"s from the guests.

Roast pig.  YUM! The meat was tender and flavourful.  The skin was so crispy

For hor d'oeuvres : salad wrapped in  prosciutto with honey and mustard dressing and prawn cocktail.

Pancit (Filipino noodles)

Potato Scallops

Fried rice made by Sis-in-law

For dessert, I asked a few family members to bring something.

lime tart made by mum-in-law

butterscotch snaps with caramel topping made by another sis-in-law

delicious trifle made by my brother @MrEd2U

An Indonesian cake made by Thomas' Godmother

I made red velvet cake and decorated the Baptism cake.
