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!

Celebrating Ramadhan at School

So finally, after much anticipation, I'm being sent to school...

This is my school, the Children Islamic Centre in Kota Damansara!

We have a huge playgroud outside where we play in the evening!

Yes, I've actually started school since the beginning of August. Although I'm still in the period of adjusting, I have made some friends and get along very well with them, especially the older ones. My teachers and some of the kakaks adore me. I'm particularly close to 2 older girls whom I call kakak. They are sisters and their names are Misha and Melissa.

Among my teachers, I'm attached to 'Teacher Fatima' although I don't mind 'Teacher Murni' taking care of me once in a while. The headteacher's name is 'Teacher Zana' (that's how we call the teachers there, 'Teacher', followed by their names) and she takes care of the older kids upstairs. She is the one Mommy pays the school fees to, monthly.

Me with Teacher Murni.. Yes, I cry with happiness everytime Dadda comes to pick me up! :)

It was difficult for Dadda and Mommy to leave me in the beginning but I'm really getting used to it now. I no longer scream my heart out everytime I see the teacher coming out to get me from the car!

Anyway, the month of Ramadhan has just started about a week ago. We had a kenduri at school to welcome the month of Ramadhan where we had a guest who came over and talked a bit about fasting. Before we went home, everyone received a goodie bag each which contained chocolates and dates, yummy! I don't really understand what fasting means but so far, I think it's when Mommy, Dadda and my teachers don't eat and drink from morning until we hear the Azan for Maghrib prayers. Nobody refrained me from eating during those times so life to me goes on as normal.

One day last week, Dadda received a call from 'Teacher Murni' informing him that I've taken a fall and have a big bump on my forehead. I did not cry but the looks on my teachers' faces told me that my bump was bad. They tried a lot of things to make it better including putting ice packs on the bump. Seeing that I was fine and didn't complain about the pain at all, they were relieved.

Going home after a fun day @ school to break fast with Mommy & Dadda!
Bye-Bye School...

So, that was really how I welcomed the month of Ramadhan... with a bump on my forehead...

Till my next post...
