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.

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. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  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

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
