7 MAY 2007
Zharif turns 7 today..
" To the son-shine of our lives...
Who make our everyday a special day,
with his warm smile...
Wishing you all the happiness life can bring.."

Birthday gift (the Spidey bottle holder) from Aunty Elle, Zharif likes it so much. Brought to school for his "show & tell" turn ( + showing off laaa...), telling everyone that it's very expensive because it's from Singapore.. The Barbie pouch belongs to Marsha & the Briyani pack was a lovely gift from lovely Kak Elle.. Thank you so much for the wonderful gifts Kak Elle, it was so thoughtful of you.. Sini nak pi makan briyani.. mahal tau..!!! Sekali makan for 4 of us, ada dalam RM100 tau.. So ini pack kena kasi simpan & masak jimat2... Restauranters here claimed briyani spices kena import from Pakistan, India bla bla bla... bestnya dapat briyani pack ni..!!

I can't organize Zharif's birthday party today as the school will be organizing "Swimming Gala" for the Junior students. It's not a swimming competition, but only a swimming fun day, for the kids to show parents how confident they are in the water. But some did show their speed & skills..

Zharif, waiting for his turn..

Briefing from Mr. Jones..

He made it.. only one lap's allowed..
8 MAY 2007

Malaysia Cultural Lunch was organized as part of the school's Parents Teachers Organization activity. This is the first time ever for us, the Malaysian Parents to prepare such an exclusive (konon2 la) lunch & cultural show.. (p/s-I was unable to update blog/hop2 because of the preparations etc, aiyaaa penat gila..) Bravo to all the Malaysian Ladies involved, all the guests loved the traditional scrumptious food (we cook all the food ourselves - cut costs maaa...), the ambience (with slideshow, traditional dance from 2 "mums") and the deco (thanks to Tourism Malaysia).. We had nearly 50 guests from various nations, plus the Principals from High, Elementary & Junior school. Sorry, not enough pictures to upload.. later maybe, if I can get some from my friends..

9 MAY 2007

Zharif & Marsha's Birthday Party & Ladies' Gathering..

Foods (desserts ni..), yang frozen tu dah prepare in advance dah, since last week.. Chocolate cake yang depan tu, a friend gave it to my children (mahal woooo..), so my 2 cakes yang sempoi but colorful tu dah pindah belakang laaa..

Main dish corner.. close up gambar ada banyak kekaburan.. ada la Spaghetti Bolognese (budak2 makan..), Karipap, Popia, Risoles, Keria..

Aunty Janet was there (all day long..) to assist the children..singing & cutting the cake bla bla bla.. We couldn't wait for others as some had to attend after school activities.. as always we started the party once Zharif ( & Marsha too) arrived from school.. they have 85 friends (Malaysians plus lain2 too...) invited for today's party..!! One shot maaa...

Parents corner... (2 guys tu, sempat drop by after office hour but poor hubby tak dapat balik cepat, nak cuti pun tak dapat, as always laa..), Zharif & Marsha did ask their daddy when they saw the uncles... Poor them..but they had fun with all the friends..

Kids corner.. ada TV (with lots of kids' channel) ok la.. It was raining (now rainy season) & therefore some kids prefer to stay indoor. But some ( ramai.. ) dapat lari keluar.. (most of my friends live in a service apartments & therefore the kids don't have enough space/area to play like cycling, playing basketball ka, skate-board ka, roller blades ka etc macam kat compound we all ni...

Zharif & Marsha with their gifts... rezeki depa la dapat hadiah tu. It was actually a gathering for all... ladies and children and I didn't expect that they will come with lots of presents.. I have been missing lots of friends, semua busy je etc.. and I thought this is the chance for all to catch up with each other.. YES, we did.. I was so grateful that some did make an effort to come though they live quite a distance from my place.. AND LAST NIGHT, SAYA PENGSAN AGAKNYA & TIDO LELAP HABIS....!!!! Tuhan je tau sakit nya badan ni.. nak postpone party tak boleh sebab banyak hal lain.. ALHAMDULILLAH semua berjalan lancar..
