My son just turned 10 years old last June 23rd and we celebrated his birthday on Friday, June 27th because it was the first day of a weekend in Oman. How time flies so fast that my little boy is now a grown up kid who never fails to amaze me with the level of his maturity because he can discuss to me the things he wants in life. Just for example, his birthday cake and party celebration. At first I wanted to make him a “Despicable Me” Minion Cake but he argued that it is only ideal for little kids. Instead, he insisted the Water Pokémon because it is his favorite games and movie online.
As I mom, I wanted the best for my children. Their happiness is my first priority to let them feel my love and care. I believe that a happy childhood results from a happy family and the child will bring this wonderful memory until adulthood. In turn, they will also build their own happy family and give a beautiful life to their own children.
I always make an effort to throw them even a simple party on their birthdays. Since last year, I added some personal touch to the preparation by making their custom-designed cake. For this year, my son’s birthday cake is a Water Pokemon-Designed cake with Frogadier as the main character.
I talked to Andrei why he loved this water-type animated character. Well, his answer was simple, “because is Frogadier is awesome, he first evolved from Froakie and then later into Greninja.”
My curiosity strucked me so I researched online about this Froggy-like creature and this was what I found:
Frogadier resembles a frog. Its name comes from the animal frog and brigadier, an army rank. It has blue and teal skin. Its eyes are yellow and it has a “fur” around its neck, which slightly resembles a cloud. Frogadier evolves from Froakie, and when it does, its jumping skill improves. During battle, Frogadier confounds its opponents by leaping about the ceiling or into trees. Frogadier attacks by launching small stones wrapped in bubbles at its opponents. It can throw bubble-covered pebbles with precise control, hitting empty cans up to a hundred feet away. Its swiftness is unparalleled. It can scale a tower of more than 2,000 feet in a minute’s time.
It sounds really interesting among kids, no wonder Andrei loves to play this online game every weekend.
Other than Frogadier, I also made the Poke Ball but on a circular tier cake which Frogadier rested on top. According to my research:
The Poké Ball or a Monster Ball is a spherical device used by Pokémon Trainers to “catch” and store Pokémon in the video game series. The strength of a Poké Ball is determined by how much it raises a wild Pokémon’s catch rate. The regular Poké Ball which is simply called a Poké Ball, is one of the many varieties of Poké Balls. The ball features a red top, white bottom, and a black ring going around the center horizontally. In the middle of the Poké Ball, there is a small, silver button which can be pushed to release or call back a Pokémon. The Poké Ball is designed to be portable, so when the Poké Ball is palm sized and when the silver button is pushed, it will grow to full size. The invention of Poké Balls apparently occurred in the Johto region, where Apricorns grow; these fruit were cut apart and carved out, then fitted with a special device, and used to catch wild Pokémon prior to the mass production of the Balls. Prior to the invention of Poké Balls, Pokémon were referred to as magical creatures (Japanese: majū), indicating that the name Pokémon, short for Pocket Monster, did not come into common parlance as a term until Poké Balls allowed the various magical creatures to be stored easily.
After discovering this info online, it helped me fully understand my son’s fascination over this mysterious creatures and animations.
During the party and after blowing his birthday candles, my son asked me “why Frogadier is fat, he is supposed to be skinny”, and my reply was “to make him look like you..chubby boy”. And we both had a good laugh.
Happy Birthday my Kuya Jerseh Andrei! For me you are always my little boy! I love you.
