Mak Lang Nur's wedding...

On the 13th and 14th of February I went to Seremban to attend Mommy's cousin, Mak Lang Nur's wedding to Uncle Wan Zul. Both Mommy and Dadda took leave on Friday the 13th so that we wouldn't have to rush to Seremban after work.

This was taken a week before the wedding during the preparation! I'm 'helping' out putting papers in the souvenir box!

After Friday prayer we took off to Seremban in 1 car and Tom Mama and PakSu Ami in another. Tok Abah couldn't go because he had his lecture. When we arrived in Seremban, everybody was busy preparing the house, room, living room and souvenirs. We headed to Atuk Ngah Man's house just next door to Atuk Long's house in Bukit Chedang to get ready. Tok Mama, PakSu Ami, Wan Teh and Wan Ki got ready there too.

At around 9pm the ceremony started. It was the 'Bernikah' ceremony where they sort of get themselves 'registered'. The 'Tok Kadi' was quite funny, according to Mommy and Dadda. I just laughed whenever anyone or everyone laughed. Yes, I was quite noisy that night, hehe... was just trying to liven things up! Owh, I forgot to mention that Kak Alyssa was also there but she wasn't feeling very well. She was asleep by the time the ceremony took place.

After that, all guests proceeded outside for dinner. By then I was already quite tired and sleepy so I took a short nap after showing a teeny weeny bit of tantrum.

When I woke up, most guests have already left. Mommy fed me with some fruits while we took photos with Mak Lang Nur and Uncle Wan Zul. We retired at Atuk Ngah's house not long after that, at around midnight.

All of us with the happy couple, Mak Lang Nureliza & Pak Lang Wan Zul..

The next morning I woke up later than others, around 10am. Mommy bathed me and Dadda took me next door to Atuk Long's house for breakfast while Mommy had her shower. We then sat and watch TV while I played with Pak Ngah Iwan. After Zohor prayers, Dadda, Mommy and I went to the hotel in Seremban town to check-in. The wedding reception was to be held there, in the ballroom of Royale Bintang Hotel.

Yeaaaayyy, I'm happy to be on my big bed in the hotel!

The room was quite nice. We got a room with a connecting door to Tok Mama and Tok Abah's room next to us. Tok Mama, Tok Abah and PakSu Ami arrived later in the afternoon because Tok Mama and PakSu went back to Subang after the nikah the night before. Originally, they were supposed to come back in the morning but apparently, one of Tok Mama's close friends passed away that morning so Tok Mama went for the funeral before coming back to Seremban.

While waiting for them to arrive, Mommy and Dadda had their lunch while I crawled around the two bedrooms, exploring! It had quite a nice view of the rest of the hotel so most of the time I spent sitting near the glass window, looking out into the garden of the hotel.

With Mak Lel who just arrived...

After awhile Aunty Huda and Mak Lel arrived and after everyone excluding me had performed their Asar prayer, Mommy, Aunty Huda, Mak Lel and I went down to check the ballroom out. Then, we went outside to the pool area where there were people swimming. Near the pool, next to the spa, there was a playground. I went on the see-saw and slide. Too bad there weren't any swings for I would've loved to go on it.

Playing on the sea-saw with my 2 Godmothers, Mak Lel & Auntie Ude!

I know I'm supposed to go down the slide, but for it's more challenging climbing up the slide!

Mommy didn't bring my swimsuit so I didn't get to swim in the pool but I did get to sit by the pool playing with the water with my feet, though. Dadda came down to join us later on for a wee while before going back up to the room to get ready. By the time we got back to the room, Tok Abah, Tok Mama and PakSu Ami have arrived.

Mommy, where's my bathing suit.. I wanna swim!

After Maghrib prayer, when all of us were ready, Mommy took me down in my stroller. By then, Papa, Mama and Ayah Ngah have also arrived and they came up to our room for Maghrib prayers too. Downstairs, guests have filled the ballroom before the VIPs including Yang Dipertua Negeri Sembilan and all the 'Undangs' arrived.

Look at me wearing a silver baju kurung with bling2x.. Us with Papa & Mama

Mommy fed me with a bottle of milk and I fell asleep. I was sure Mommy and Dadda were quite relieved that I was asleep almost throughout the ceremony. That gave them ample time to have dinner and mingle with the guests. In other words, I was very well behaved that night, hehe...

My wedding reception dinner..

Kenyang perut, tidur lagi.. Slept through the whole merenjis ceremony!

When I woke up, the event was almost over. Guests were already queueing up to say their well wishes to the bride and groom and their parents. We stayed back for a photo session with the huge family. I met a lot of friends and relatives during the farewells and photo shoots. They all thought I looked gorgeous in my silver 'baju kurung'. I'm sure Mommy and Dadda were very proud of me. Finally after the photo session that took about an hour to wrap up, we went up to the room around midnight and got ready for bed.

Awake now.. In front of the elegant pelamin!

The next morning I had to be forced to wake up for breakfast by Mommy and Dadda. When we went down for breakfast, everyone was already finishing up with their food. I was only half awake. I think Mommy and Dadda were also tired because instead of hanging out around the pool like everyone else after breakfast, they took me up to the room where I managed to get more sleep while they pack. At noon, we checked out and went back home.

Hey, I want this!...

All in all, it was an interesting weekend for me. We're still waiting for Mak Lang to show us photos from the professional photographer from those nights. I'll be attending more weddings this year. I'll keep you updated.

I want TheLilCaliph goodies!

I'll be turning 10 months soon and I feel I deserve a gift or goodies for all my cheeky naughty good behaviour all this while.

So, when browsing for goodies, I stumbled upon this cool online Malaysian store specialising in baby stuff called The Lil Caliph!

What's The Lil Caliph you may asked? Well, Caliph (according to Wikipedia) is an Arabic word that generally means leader or head of state. And hence, the store uses this name to represent the future leaders, like myself.. Yes, I am a Lil Caliph! :)

Look Mommy, I'm a Lil Caliph!

Anyway, the store have sooo many goodies for Mommy & me! These are categorised neatly on the left side of their website such as Toys&Games, Mother Care, Baby Bags and Travel Companion!

Furthermore, Dadda's friends, Auntie Mas and Uncle Johan both just had their newborn baby girl and baby boy respectively, so
The Lil Caliph will be the perfect place to find a gift for my new lil friends!

So, what should we get them? And what will be the perfect gift for me?

There are soo many cool choices available at TheLilCaliph (TLC for short). For example, I saw this plush tiger toy called Taj The Tiger that Ayahde might really love (since they just came back from the zoo and Ayahde is crazy about tigers)

Hmmm, that makes me wonder, when will Dadda & Mommy bring me to the Zoo? I guess maybe when I can walk too, which I hope soon coz I can already easily stand & dance to the music!

Back to TheLilCaliph website, you can also select your goodies through the Manufacturers! Say you always love products from Fisher-Price, then just select those and Walla! -- You will be on the page that sorts all Fisher-Price goodies. It's sooo user-friendly and innovative!

What more, you also get free shipping for orders more than RM200!

But, the reason I love the site soo much is because I can actually reward my Mommy & Dadda with a holiday of a lifetime!

Of course, this is my first entry to the contest, and if I blog more about TheLilCaliph, then the chances for me to reward Mommy & Dadda with a trip to Phuket & Bali will be higher! They surely deserves it after putting up with my theatrics for 10 months..!

So, would you help me in my quest? Help spread the words around about this entry and also leave a comment...!

Hmmm, maybe I can also get gifts for all the February babies in our family like Papa, Mak Lel, Auntie Alma, Iky & Uncle Nuor from TheLilCaliph!

Shoo, fly, don't bother me!

Shoo, fly, don't bother me!
I remember Mommy and Daddy running,
They were talking loudly, for it was so noisy,
I felt safe in Mommy's arms.
I thought I heard Mommy and Daddy laughing,
But instead they were screaming,
There were fireworks everywhere,
And with one loud thunder,
I fell asleep.

Shoo, fly, don't bother me!
You woke me up, I was in a deep sleep,
These people around me are still sleeping,
Where's Mommy, what happened to Daddy?
Wait, I think I see them sleeping not far from me.
Shall I wake them up?
How long have I slept?
Mommy! Daddy! Please come to me,
I can't move and I'm frightened.

Shoo, fly, don't bother me!
Please help me find my uncles, aunts and cousins,
They must be worried, looking all over for us,

But somehow I'm not afraid now.
I see the place where I'm heading to,
Bright and beautiful, peaceful and serene,
There I see Mommy smiling at me,

Please uncle, please claim my body,
Bathe me, dress me, let me go to sleep,
Please aunt, help lay me to rest,

A poem for my unfortunate friends...

I swim with Mommy and Dadda on Mondays,
Bowling nights with my family are always on Tuesdays,
I hang out with Tok Mama and Tok Abah on Wednesdays,
Spend precious times with Mommy and Dadda on Thursdays,

Fridays are always 'free and easy',
Snuggle between Mommy and Dadda, getting cozy,
Weekends are spent with brothers and sisters of Dadda,
How about you, my fellow friends in Gaza?

Mondays, Tuesdays, everyday including Sundays,
You scream, cry and in fear, always?
Bombs, shootings, groanings and shouts
Are what you hear around you, so loud?

Where are your families, Daddas and Mommies?
They've been shot and killed by the armies?
So who's going to look after you now?
You have to be fed by someone, somehow.

Don't be sad, my fellow friends in Gaza,
Your Mommy and Dadda are in heaven with Allah.
I'm sure it's sad to have no one at all,
If it were me, I'd definitely bawl.

You don't understand what you did wrong,
To face the world, you now have to be strong.
My family and I will always pray for you,
To finally have a peaceful and happy life too.

My favourite pastime: Swimming

How many of you can swim? How often do you swim? My Mommy and Dadda can swim. I suppose they think that it's important for me to learn how to swim too.

They introduced me to the pool very early; as early as 3 months' old although most people think it's not advisable to take your babies to the pool before the age of 6 months. Nevertheless, Mommy saw how I really love water and thought that throwing me early into the pool might also make my body tougher. My first experience in the pool was at the Hyatt Hotel, Johor Bahru.

My 1st baby float, swimming with Mommy @ Hyatt JB!

Dadda joining in the fun and making sure I'm ok!

Now, I'm kind of a seasoned swimmer among babies my age. I say that because we go swimming every Monday night at Tok Abah's club in Subang Jaya. We started swimming weekly since I turned 6 months. I'm not afraid of the water at all, unlike some babies my age.

Mama Lyana, PapaAdam, Dadda & me at the club's swimming pool!

A couple of weeks ago, Mommy bought me a special float called 'Mambobaby'. It's special because I use it around my neck so my whole body goes under water while swimming. This keeps my upper body from being cold when exposed to the air when only my legs are in the water if I use the normal float. Once our body gets cold, that's when we catch the flu.

Even Tok Abah & Tok Mama is impressed at my swimming skills and love for water!

So, I strongly recommend the 'Mambobaby' to all babies under 2 years' old. Besides keeping your whole body under water, you will also learn to swim faster because your hands and legs will be free to move around, like treading water, I mean. As a result, our hands and legs will be stronger too.

My first taste of the new MamboBaby float Mommy bought me.
Check me out, I'm really swimming baby!

Look Mommy, I'm swimming!

Besides the pool, I've also been to the sea. I don't quite like the sand but I loved the sea! I get excited everytime I see the wave coming towards me! I enjoyed standing on the beach when the waves broke and water came rushing towards my tiny feet. Mommy held me while I enjoyed the warm sea.

At the moment, I know that swimming is my favourite pastime. What about you? Care to go for a swim?

Till next time,

A trip to remember @ SummerSet part 2

Hi again!

Ok, today is the 1st January 2009 and that means it's New Year!!
So, I'm here to wish all readers of my blog a very happy and prosperous 2009!

Now, let's get back to my family trip story....
(some pictures are still pending from Uncle Zul's camera!)

The morning after, while everyone elsewhere were probably queueing up at shopping complexes for Boxing Day Sale, we played our games. There were 6 games altogether. The 1st game played were Ayah De's and Che' De's game. There were 3 teams playing and Mommy and Dadda weren't in the same team so you can imagine them bantering each other!

Team RED ready to rumble!!

Next we played Tia's game which was a Treasure Hunt. Mommy and Dadda didn't win this game because they couldn't find 2 items on the list; plus, they got tricked by Kak Miza, hehehe... We then moved on to the Trio's (Ayah Ngah, Che'Ah and Cu Na) game. Mommy got blindfolded and Dadda had to guide her to walk towards him by calling out a secret name. They won this game, obviously, knowing how loud my Dadda's voice is!

For lunch, we drove to Kuala Rompin to find a good place to eat. It was a very sunny day and all the stalls didn't look condusive for babies like me and Kak Sara so we finally decided to just go to KFC. Hahaha!! Imagine going all the way to Kuala Rompin from Kuala Lumpur and ended up at KFC! Anyway, it turned out to be a good meal and very comfortable for everyone.

Check me out with Dadda's glasses!

At around 5pm, we began to play the last 3 games and had started off with Papa and Mama's game. Everyone had to throw a ball at a frisbee which contained 10 plastic balls. Both Mommy and Dadda didn't hit the frisbee at all, hahaha!!!

I could hit all the balls better than Dadda & Mommy!

After that game, they proceeded to play Aunty Alma's game. Each team had to creatively write the word Summerset on the sand. Mommy and Dadda won that game too.

Can you believe this design made them won Auntie Alma's game??

Finally, we headed to the pool to play the last game by Mommy and Dadda. Ayah Ngah and Tia won that game which they had to push a balloon each by nose or forehead to the other side of the pool and come back swimming using only half of their body.

Pool time everybody! Ayah Ngah's very impressed with my swimming skills!

Later that night, we had dinner and prize presentation in Papa and Mama's room. We stayed to play a few more indoor games for fun and then retired around midnight.

All the prizes that we won as a family!

We had a short and late breakfast the next morning because Dadda wanted to rest a bit before driving back to KL. After breakfast, Mommy and Dadda took me for a walk on the beach for the last time. Oh, did I mention that I first set foot on the beach sand the day we played the games? I don't think I quite like the sand but the sea... oh yes, I loved the sea! Mommy held my hands while we stood near the water and when the waves broke and the water came to my feet I was excited. I wanted to sit on the sand while the water move towards me but Mommy thought it was dangerous to let me do that by myself.

Mommy, please bring me to the ocean!

Anyway, on the way back we stopped by at the Rest & Relax near Gambang to have lunch.

At the rest area with Che' Nah, PJ family official caretaker for a long time!

After a while driving, Mommy and Dadda heard a sound from under the car and pulled aside. Alas, it was a burst tyre so Dadda called Ayah Ngah, Uncle Farlie and Ayah De and they stopped to help. There were some complications during the tyre change that it took them around 2 hours to complete everything with the help of some highway patrol men.

Thank God, we're all OK!

Poor Dadda, out in the rain changing our flat tyres!

We arrived in Subang at around 7.45pm. Mommy gave me my bath and got me ready as quickly as possible. I was to join Tok Abah and Tok Mama in attending Kak Alyssa's birthday party in Bukit Chedang, Seremban. Mommy and Dadda, on the other hand didn't follow us because Dadda was so, so tired and moody.

Originally, while I joined Tok Abah and Tok Mama at Kak Alyssa's birthday barbecue party, they were supposed to attend a wedding in KL. But due to unforeseen circumstances (like the burst tyre), they couldn't make it. They just went to have dinner with the PJ family and came back to watch TV.

Wasn't I tired I hear you ask? Yes, quite. But it was Kak Alyssa's 1st birthday and I know I was expected to be there by lots of people. They are always eager to see me and everybody wants to carry me around although they know I wouldn't want to be held by anyone except Tok Mama and Tok Abah. And yet they still try...

When we reached Seremban I was so tired and I had put up a sulky face for everyone. Only after Tok Mama fed me with some mashed potato that I became a bit cheerful and wanted to smile to people. Even Kak Alyssa was tired and had a short nap before being woken up to cut cake. She too didn't really have a smile on her face. If Kak Alyssa is reading, I just want to tell her that you don't have to feel guilty for being moody that night. We're babies! We're allowed to do that and we're expected to too.

We finally arrived back in Subang close to midnight and I slept like a log! I'm sure Mommy and Dadda too slept very soundly that night.

Well, that was how I spent my Christmas holidays. Very well packed with activities! Can't wait to see all the photos from everybody's camera...


Have a great New Year weekend everybody!

Make sure you read this too!
