..and More Events...

2nd Event : Family Gathering @ Alor Gajah.

Nenek & Atok invited us to kenduri of welcoming the Ramadhan month at Alor Gajah, Melakau. It was held on last weekend. This event was very looked forward as we haven't balik kampung since last 2++ months ( when Hana was 4 months old). I bet they missed Hana so much.. seems like that when my Atok will asked the very same question when he called me.. "Anak ekau dah pandai apo?" hehehe... And for Hana, this is her 2nd time visiting her moyangsss..:p I wonder what would it be like..becoz :-

1. The weather is quite hot there...especially in the afternoon.(But really cool and chilly at night) As a 'Bandar' baby who sleep in air-conditioned room..could she behave in such weather??

2. Hana dislike strangers..especially if she notice that she is with somebody unfamiliar. She will be pissed-off.. so, could she bear with people who don't understand her dislikes???

3. Usually Hana's daily life are with 2 person the least (me & hubby) and 6 people the most (maktok,paktok,acik wani, acik nadiah + us). So, what if there are 40++ people around her???

4. Hana sleep around 9 - 10 o'clock every night in a quiet and chill room. So, if the night is till 'happening' till 12 - 1 a.m? Can she sleep in peace??

And the answers are :-

1. Yess.. she really cant stand the heat. She whined, scrathing her itchy head (rash probably) and cried till we have to take her away from the house for a while.. we headed to Mak Itam's house, and there..she played and slept in Mak Itam's room + aircond for 2 hours!!

2. Again..yes, she cried when she saw unfamiliar face held her. The consequence was.. I had to be with her almost all the time. Luckily.. she still dont mind if her atok & nenek replaced me for a while. Phewwww....

3. The bright part :) She liked the merrier but with one condition.. dont hold her. She will 'talk' and smile to anyone who greeted her but dont rushingly took her away from me..she would cry...aiyyaaa... :)

4. No... she hardly slept that night becoz children were still running here and there, yelling.. old folks still making jokes and burst into huge laughter. At last.. she felt asleep coz of too tired at 11 o'clock in her moyang's room.. When everybody slept.. i transfered Hana to living room (my family's usual sleeping port) at 1.30 a.m. But much to my suprise.. one of my uncle turn on the tv and watched golf-tournament!! What kind of crap common sense he had... ended up Hana awake at 2.30 a.m and cant sleep becoz of the bright light from tv. My hubby was still awake and busy doing his officework (yeah rite.. he's a workaholic :p ). I brought Hana to him and nagged all the way bout my uncle. Then I asked my hubby to transfer our pillows & mattress to pray er hall... where Hana can sleep peacefully.I was just sooo tired at that time...D**n!!

Hahaha... funny, the situation is really different this time with Hana. I cant imagine what would it be when Hari Raya `Idulfitri in a month time. The whole family size will be doubled as well as the 'happening' situation. Can we make it through??? Ermm..need to think a backup plan I guess.

Apart from those bad situation.. one sub event that became such a relief was.. Hamper-giving event. Ngeee :) Every confirmed attendance will receive a hamper worth RM30++.. huhu, thanks to my Pak Teh as the organizer and to his generosity contributing those hampers :)

The event... ;)

I got fever and flu when get back home... Alhamdulillah, it's not what u guys think ;) Just an ordinary fever coz of too tired...

3rd Event : Yeppy Yenniversary to us!! :)

HamdanLillah... due to His permission, our marriage has reached the 3rd year happily. 18/8/09 to be exact. We celebrated this memorable event at Mama's place in modesty..alongside our anniversary 'gift' - Raihana Izzati :) Nothing fancy or suprise romantic what-so-ever dinner this time :) Just a Baker's Cottage delicious choc cake, Baker's Cottage HALAL Moon Cake, and western cuisine from Chop n Steak as the special anniversary menu.. and definitely our pray for this marriage to everlast and our neverending love beautify it..for the sake of Allah..ameen.

Yeah... mari sembelih kek!!

Our sweet anniversary present..

Alalala...shomeynye tangan ye... :)

Happy 3rd Anniversary to us :) Love u till end of my life...

Speaking of the Moon Cake... have u ever try once?? If not..then u should :) I'm not sure whether this HALAL Moon Cake tasted the same as the Non-Halal. But the looks doesn't have any different..very artistic :) I saw the big banner at the Baker's Cottage entrance claiming their Moon Cake is the 1st Halal Moon Cake...with Halal JAKIM logo.. so I said, why not give it a try. And.. i choose 4 modern flavs : Plain Pandan, Peanut Choc, Coffee Tiramisu and Dark Choc ( I dont think I can eat the traditional flavs with Lotus seed, Yolk bla bla bla...)

Plain Pandan

Coffee Tiramisu

With cheese filling...

My Hubby was very eager about them... he's the 1st dashed to the kitchen and came out with a knife (FYI ..the Moon Cake is quite big for a person to eat). He cut them quarterly and gave 'em to each of us. I can see Mama hesitated coz she still think that all Moon Cakes are not halal. Hee..cant put the blame on her. Moon cake is a very 'totok' chinese tradisional food..rite?. Then she was successfully convinced and ate 'em. Guess what.. they ain't really that bad. And quite good on certain flavs.. but I must say that they are veeeery sweet. A quarter portion was just enough for my 1st attempt. Hehehe.. aziah might like 'em.. (well, kelantanese la katekan) :p

4th pre-event : Awal Ramadhan

Today will be the last day of day eating :) Tonight will be the 1st terawih & tomorrow for sahur. Hmm..Alhamdulillah, we meet again Ramadhan. And I really hope I can genuinely blend into the Ramadhan blessing & numerous benefits. Ya Allah..let me feel the sweetness of ibadah, gain the rejoice promised to Muslim who fasted, purify myself with doing good deeds and asking for Your forgiveness for past, present & future mistakes. Let Ramadhan be the strong bridge connecting me & You Ya Allah.. if I had been neglecting Your commands so many time in previous months..then, dont let me repeat in Ramadhan :'( Please..dont left me behind... ameen.

Me and hubby plan having our 1st sahur at Mama's place. I plan to cook that morning so that Mama can rest. She looks very tired after taking care of Hana for the whole Hana dont give a chance to Maktok to rest..huuu, Sian Maktok tau, Hana... Ermm.. hopefully the plan will be successfully executed ;) Ok then.. the next entry will be on Ramadhan InsyaAllah..kay? have a blessed day & rewarded night...
