August Birthday Celebrations & Ramadan

My First Ramadan How's everyone's Ramadhan so far?

As usual, August is a month of celebration in our family because it's the month of Pak Su's, Tok Abah's and Mommy's birthday. This year, their birthdays happened to fall in the month of Ramadhan.

Pak Su's birthday was the day before fasting started so we didn't have any celebrations. Besides, we just had a Graduation barbecue dinner for him 2 weekends before. It was also sort of a farewell dinner for Pak Ngah Ajad who'll be flying of to Cairo, Egypt in September to further his studies.


Happy Birthday Pak Su @ Kayu SS2

Tok Abah's birthday was on a Sunday, 15th August, and it was the first weekend of Ramadhan so we had an Iftaar get-together on Saturday, the day before Tok Abah's birthday. All Tok Abah's brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces came to Princess Garden for the Iftaar. There were quite a variety of food to choose from and Tok Mama cooked her special Sweet n Sour Crab.
Yummy! It was the first time I tasted crab and I loved it!

After dinner, we prayed together and before the Tarawikh prayers, Ami Iqbal gave a short Usrah and talked about Solat. I prayed next to Mommy and after that played with Kak Alia. After the Tarawikh prayers, Mommy brought out Tok Abah's birthday cupcakes to celebrate his 60th birthday.
Mommy's friend Aunty Dilly joined us that night too.


Enjoying the Terawikh prayers!


Happy Birthday 60th Birthday Tok Abah !


Thank you Auntie Dilly for joining us!

A few days later, on the 17th, it was Mommy's turn to celebrate. She took leave from work and I was delighted because she told me the night before that I didn't have to go to school and I get to go out shopping with both Mommy and Dadda on her birthday. I remember waking up on Tuesday morning feeling really excited. I smiled the minute I opened my eyes and saw Mommy and Dadda still sleeping next to me. Right then I knew she was telling the truth when she said that I didn't have to go to school that day.

We got up, got ready and Pak Su arrived. He was to join us shopping too! Yippee! In the afternoon we came back for a while and Pak Su helped Mommy with the drill and put together some stuff. After Zohor prayers, we continued our shopping. That night, we had dinner with Tok Abah, Tok Mama, Pak Su, Adida, Mak Lel and Wan Ki at Shogun, Sunway Pyramid. All the August babies received their birthday presents there. Mommy got 2 pairs of tops and a pair of earrings. Pak Su gave Mommy a Man Utd gold shirt too!


Happy birthday Mommy! Look @ my smug look!


We love Shogun!


With my favourite aunts & Mommy's presents!

The month of August have always been a happening one. I'm now looking forward to shopping for Eid.

Happy fasting everyone!

What I've learned in school so far...

Just a quick update on what I've picked up in school since I started attending
CIC (Children Islamic Centre) slightly more than a year ago.

Of course I now know my ABCs and how to count 1, 2, 3 in English, Malay and Mommy taught me to count 1 to 10 in French too. Apart from that, I can now recite the doa before I eat and before I go to bed too.

My latest achievement this past couple of weeks (that I think Mommy and Dadda are so proud of) is to be able to join Mommy and Dadda when performing the solat and read the Iftitah and Al Fatihah in full.

And besides the usual nursery rhymes that everyone knows, I can also sing the 10 Malaikat (10 Angels) song. Don't believe me? Here's the proof...
