Eid 2014 Celebration: Open House & Aulia' Birthday Celebration

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Finally, after a month of fasting, Ramadhan gives way for Syawal to shine. And you know what that means! It's Raya Raya Raya!! This year my in-law decided to host an open house to celebrate our Eid festive by inviting all the relatives and neighbors on the third day of Syawal. This 'open house' is also in conjunction with our Doa Selamat event and to celebrate our daughter 3rd birthday.. 
We called in the caterers and I did the DIY 'mini candy buffet' for the guests. My MIL made rendang and we bought lemang to served to the all the guests. As usual, everyone has their own task. My FIL is in-charged with the invitations, the boys with their furniture arrangement and housekeeping while the girls are busy with the food preparation. Well, everything is organized when everyone gave a helping hand I can say :)

The open house begin at lunch hour and people starts to filled up our living hall. We served tea and cookies for the unties and cousins while other guests have their lunch outside.
Ooops!
Sorry for the overexposed 'thighty whities' because somebody is way too focus on enjoying her dipped chocolate apple! Can't get her away from chocolate. Of course after a while someone decided to wiped her dirty hands on the dress. Sigh!

Then it's time for the cake cutting and presents opening session. I just love seeing how these lovely kids look so excited singing the birthday song and wanted to blow candles even there is no candle on that cake. Aulia' was a shy, meek little thing and clung to me when everyone singing her the birthday song. hehe. But somewhat after few minutes she started to really come out of her shell when she received her birthday gifts.
The Sophia First cake was sponsored by Mak Yang!

This is Khalif, Aulia's second cousin from father side, giving a helping hand to unwrapped all the gift. So cute! 
She's quite a patient girl when it comes to opening gift. So much class and self-control, like her mother. lol.
 Thank you to everyone who gave presents to Aulia' on her birthday :) Hope ya'all had a GREAT Eid. I know we did.


And here to a blessed gathering... one last time family photo before everyone's leaving.

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

Aulia' tindik telinga:)

Assalammualaikum wbt..
Anak dara aku dah lama mintak dok nak pakai subang..alahaii..girly stuff gitu. Dia tengok aku pakai makeup dia pun nak makeup. Tengok pakai lipstick dia pun nak jugak. . . Bulan lepas ni dia tengok ada sorang girl dalam lingkungan umur 4-5 tahun kat mall pakai subang..Dia kata cantik..dia pun nak..

Memang selalu dia buat ayat macam tu kalau nak apa-apa..

"Ibu..cantiknye yang kat telinga dia tu ibu..tengok tu..apa tu? Aulia' rasa Aulia' pun nak la jugak"

Haa gitew..

Aku pun cakap..

"Tu subang. Nak pakai subang, kene tindik telinga dulu. Klau nak tindik, kene tembak dulu telinga sampai berdarah baru boleh pakai subang.."

Aku saja bagi cerita horror sikit kat dia so conversation tu boleh stop kat situ..

Dia pun tenung je aku bila aku sebut "berdarah-darah" tu...agaknya tak berani nak continue cerita lagi. Hahaha.Berjaya!


Ternyata aku salah. Anak aku boleh memorize cerita aku sampai la malam masa nak tidur memang kami akan baca…
