So, it’s part 2 to the hubs birthday. Lucky dude has got so many celebrations. I still have a part 3 upcoming. At the same time, while enjoying the celebration, let’s have a look at the place we held a mini birthday party at The White Olive Cafe at Changi Cove.
To start off, theme of the party was black and white and it was for a reason. Unlike the more superstitious kinda belief where one shouldn’t wear black and white to any forms of celebration, this in-laws I have are pretty much modernized and very ang moh pai.
I’m wearing an F1 inspired outfit (like real). No not really, it’s just something I managed to find from my wardrobe which I’ve not worn for quite some time.

Here comes my Uncle-in-law and his family in style.
The hubs had fish & chips which was really delicious. The fish was very tender and all the mains are in the $10+ range, which is very affordable and we get to dine in peace on a Sunday, without the hustle and bustle of the city crowd.
While waiting for the rest of the food to come, we sneaked in a selfie first.
Michie baby sis and I couldn’t decide to eat the burger or the pizza, so we ended up orderig one each and so we shared. Greatest decision ever because IT IS SO GOOD! The burger as below.
Some of us ate the same items so there doesn’t seem to be that many mains, but everyone agreed that they love the food, so I presume it was all done tastefully and quite an eye feast too.
We ordered 2 sides as well, one truffle fries and chicken wings. The truffle oil taste wasn’t all that strong which to us truffle lovers might not be a good thing, but to the hubs it was good coz he hates anything truffle. It was kinda a situation of fries overdose because my mains had fries already.
This year, I decided to do something special for the hubs because every year’s pretty much the same. Getting a cake, make a wish and eat the cake. I’ve always liked fondant cakes because you can practically make all sorts of things and I wanted something special for the hubby. So thankfully, I secured a sponsorship with Sweetaneri, who sponsored a Snoopy Fondant rainbow cake for me (actually for the hubs). I showed her a couple of pictures I found from the internet and told her to work around it, and I gave her the free will to design the cake, as long as there’s a Snoopy on it.
This year’s planning was really kinda last minute, from the restaurant to the birthday cake and to the actual birthday date, but it all went very well. Sometimes, some things just fall into place isn’t it? 🙂
I secured the sponsorship on 16th Sep, and the birthday celebration was 20th Sep. On 18th Sep, I received the illustration for the cake. The cake is 8 inches, which feeds about 20 people, so that’s more than enough for the 9 pax party which we are having.
The very reason why the birthday theme was black and white was because of Snoopy coz he is black and white. Lol! Hubs went with me to collect the cake but he still didn’t know what it was. It was a pleasant surprise for him because he saw the cake and was gleaming. I requested for a Snoopy cake for him because it is his childhood’s favorite character. The cake literally stole the limelight really, because everyone whipped their phones out to take pictures and started Snapchatting.
A photo with all of them. I’m really truly blessed to have such wonderful in-laws, and it’s been nothing but bliss, having this additional family.
Whatever that you’re wishing for, my wish for you is that your wishes will be granted, and most importantly, to stay healthy.
Rainbow cakes always make good pictures don’t they? While I like that the cake wasn’t too sweet, my parents-in-law thought that it would have been nicer if it was a tad sweeter. I thought I’m the one with the sweet tooth. Lol…. I guess it’s to each his own. The cake was soft and fluffy and as much as I like sweet things, the fondant was practically sugar, therefore I skipped eating it. I’m giving the cake 8/10. The outlook is fantastic and the cake is soft and not too sweet. Now that I’m blogging about it, I kinda wanna eat a cake now.
Packaging of the cake was in 2 boxes made into a house. Thank you Sweetaneri, you’ve made everyone at the party very happy!
Overall, the experience at The White Olive was excellent. I really love the quietness of the place, away from the bustling, easy to find a space to have a good meal at very affordable prices in a hotel. Their service was really warm too and the F&B manager was also very nice to us. Initially, parking was not included, but somehow my father-in-law managed to get 3 for the 3 drivers there.
Talk about good service. I believe nice people deserves great service from service staffs, but sometimes, some people just really makes me wonder why should you deserve good service when you don’t even respect the serving party? Oh wells.
Do checkout Sweetaneri on her Instagram or contact her at 91086342, email firstname.lastname@example.org. She’s very nice and friendly and will accommodate to your requests. The Snoopy cake costs $150 if you were to order something similar. You can also let her know your budget so she knows what she can offer you. 🙂 Thanks for reading!!
