Nathaniel is baptised in the catholic church!

It is 6th November 2005 (Sunday) at 4pm. Nathaniel Isaac Lim is baptised at St. Bernadette Church. The baptism was conducted by Fr. Eugene Chong. We chose Nathaniel's God parents. And they are none other than our good friends from the RCIA/Confirmation group at St. Bernies. Unfortunately, God Pa - Francis could not make it as he was out of town, but his wife, God Ma - Janice was present together with her kids (God bro - Paul, who served mass; and God sis - Marianne). As Fr. Eugene knows us personally, he gave another special blessing to Shirley Sarah and Nathaniel and gave us a statue of St Gerald, patron saint of mothers (pregnant or otherwise).

We then treated both families to a dinner at Beng Hiang Restaurant at Amoy Street - Hokkien food, which apparently, my family enjoyed the food.

Marianne (God sis), Janice (God ma), Paul (God bro) and Lao Ma with us.

Mama, Luke, Mathias and Katherine with us.

Auntie Barbara, Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Barnaby, Lao Ma with us.

Fr. Eugene with us.

The first nail cut on 23 October 2005

This was really scary. Imagine those little finger nails!! So delicate and soft. Our baby nail cutter seems so big too! I had a shot at first, passed it over to S and than later on trimmed his nails again. Fun experience..

Finally at that gathering....

More pics from the gathering!!

Someone had put ideas in someone's mind about the famous Lana Cake from Bukit Timah.... but I must add that they are getting expensive and can be quite "ATAS". Anyhow, a nice cake for a nice gathering.

The Lims finally having a photo taken. So "hamsome" the boys are. Of course, the lady is so beautiful too!
All pictures taken on 22 October 2005.

It was Nathaniel's full month a couple of days back, and we decided not to have anything big, so we just called a few pals for a dinner and TC session. Was great having people around. Sure brightens up a place I must say. Thanks guys for dropping by!!
