A 'princess' birthday party

To celebrate her fourth birthday, which falls on this coming Friday, Make-A-Wish Foundation organised a "princess" themed party at Siloso Beach Resort last Sunday.

Zecia, who loves swimming and everything princess-related, had wished for a fun and memorable holiday with her parents and her baby sister. 

Upon arrival at the resort, Zecia and her family were greeted by the welcome party dressed in Disney Princess costumes.

The party saw more than 30 relatives and friends invited, and dressed in her very own princess costume - complete with a tiara, wand and glass slippers - Zecia celebrated the next few hours with games, balloon sculpting performance and even a magic show.

A spokesperson for the foundation said after visiting the family, they found out that Zecia especially misses the times the family travelled to China together. Thus, they decided to fulfill Zecia's wish of enjoying another holiday with her family.

The celebration was continued over the next two days, with visits to Underwater World Singapore and the Dolphin Lagoon.

Make-A-Wish Foundation has also agreed to help with fund-raising activities to ease the medical burden of the family.

Interested donors can call the foundation at 6334 9474 from 8.30am to 5.30pm on weekdays for more information, or email
