Happy Father's Day...

Sunday, 21st June. Happy Father's Day Dadda, Tok Abah, Papa and all the fathers out there! This year will be Dadda's 2nd year celebrating Father's Day thanks to moi...


My Dadda is the Best!


Tok Abah and I!


Papa and I!

Anyway, this will be a short one. Just wanted to tell everyone that the post about the MAS contest I posted a few weeks ago is over and sadly, I didn't win. They invited Mommy and Dadda to a dinner where they announced the winners, though. They went without me.


Dadda & Mommy went to dinner without me!

Apart from that, my life's been going on just as normal. I have a feeling that Mommy and Dadda will be sending me to school soon, though I'm not sure when exactly. I'll tell you all about that when it happens, ok.

Meanwhile, life is good... Here's Mommy's favourite video specially for all the fathers.

Weddings

So, I know that I haven't been writing for quite a while now. I've been quite busy actually, err... with attending weddings.

Anyway, as some of you might already know, Mommy, Dadda, Aunty Huda and Mak Lel went to Bali a few weeks ago (I was told that Bali is somewhere in a place called Indonesia. As if I know where that is!). As usual, I was left behind with Tok Abah, Tok Mama and Pak Su Ami. The weekend they went to Bali the 4 of us took a long trip to a place called Triang. It took us forever to get there! We went there to attend a wedding of Tok Abah's and Tok Mama's friend. Needless to say, I was well behaved and quite entertaining to Tok Abah, Tok Mama and Pak Su throughout the journey although I was sooo tired.

Mommy, Dadda, Aunty Huda and Mak Lel came back on Sunday, 31st May at around 10am. We picked them up at the airport and went straight to Malacca to attend another wedding. This time Mommy knew the groom and Tok Abah and Tok Mama knew the groom's parents. Apparently, they were neighbours from ages ago and Mommy and the groom grew up together. They met again when they worked together at ASTRO.


In Malacca, waiting for Tok Mama's friend at Kolej Yayasan Saad..

I didn't really feel tired during that journey to Malacca maybe because I was excited to see Mommy and Dadda back from Bali. Of course I missed them a lot but I tried not to show it too much. Anyway, we stopped by at Tok Mama's hometown in Rembau to see Nek Wan and Nek Tok on the way back from Malacca.


Hmmm, mam-mam! I love food.. eating with Mommy..


Our picture with the groom (Uncle Ayai) and his wife

On the 6th of June, Mommy, Dadda and I went to a wedding in Meru, Klang. It was not that far, about 45 minutes' drive from home. This time it was the wedding of Dadda's cousin, Uncle Mahmie and his fiancee, Aunty Zarina.


In my cute green dress, all ready for the convoy!

You see, in a Malay culture, there are always receptions at both the bride's side of the family and the groom's. Most of the time, though not always, the bride's side will hold the reception before the groom's side. Malay weddings always start with the religious ceremony, in this case, at a mosque.


At the mosque, hugging Papa!


Just me witnessing the akad nikah..


Look at all the 'hantaran'...


Playing with Cik Ah's camera, with Cuna, Mommy and Cekde looking..

After that we proceeded to the bride's house about 5 minutes' drive from the mosque where the reception was being held. I have to tell you that the food served was delicious!

A week after that, on the 13th, it was the groom's family's turn to hold a reception. I went to the groom's parents' house the night before the wedding to 'help' with the preparations. I helped quite a lot, actually, with the food, I mean. Anyway, the reception was held at a hall not far from the house. We met with a lot of relatives from Dadda's family who came from all over Malaysia just to attend the wedding.


Tok Mama, Tok Abah and Pak Su also tagged along with us!


All dressed in brilliant purple. Mama with her bling-bling dress! :)


My Subang family with the 'mempelai'.. I'm too busy looking at Auntie Zarina's flowers!


Enjoying some cooling moment near the fan with CuNa!


The MC for the day, AyahNgah -- Bujang Lapok (we're still waiting...)


Our small family with Uncle Mahmie & Auntie Zarina. Selamat Pengantin Baru!

So, those were more or less my account of the weddings I've attended for the past few weeks. Of course to me the best part of all the weddings are the Food! Glorious Food!


Not food, but flower. Yup, just me playing with the fresh orchids during the wedding reception.

Till we meet again...

My Kelate Trip - part 2

The next morning everyone woke up early to have breakfast together with Tok Abah before he went off to work at 8.30am. After breakfast, Mommy, Tok Mama and I went back to the room and I fell back to sleep soon after. Our original plan was to go for a swim at the pool but it was raining so we had to cancel our plan.


At Wan Ani's house upon arrival. I can't sit still as usual!


Mommy, can we go out now??


Yeaaayy! I'm ready to leave my hotel room & explore Kota Bharu!
At around 2pm, the three of us decided to browse through the shopping mall next door which was connected to the hotel. We bought some snacks and headed back to the room. Tok Abah came back at around 4pm. At 6pm, Tok Mama's friend from school, fetched us from the hotel and took us to her house for dinner. We had typical Kelantan food called Laksam and Laksa Kelantan. I had some of Mommy's, some of Tok Mama's and some of Tok Abah's. After dinner she sent us back to the hotel. We then drove to another shopping mall called KB Mall about 5 minutes' drive from the hotel and Tok Mama looked for some scarves for souvenirs. On the way back to the hotel, we had supper at a restaurant named Tarbush which serves Arab food.


I love looking at myself through the mirror!


Off to dinner! The red dress makes it hard for me to walk..

The next day, we didn't have breakfast with Tok Abah. After he left for work, we went down for breakfast at around 10am. Again, we wanted to swim but I started yawning right after breakfast so we didn't go and I went back to sleep. Tok Abah came back at 11am and they started packing. We were supposed to check out of the hotel at 12 noon but Tok Mama asked for a late check out. We eventually checked out at 2pm. We then headed straight to a place which sells Batik materials. We spent more than an hour there and finally drove to KB Mall right after for a drink because the weather was so hot, we wanted to look for air conditioned place. We were supposed to meet Wan Ani, Tok Amin who had just arrived that very morning and their kids at the restaurant, Tarbush for dinner.


Look at all the colourful BATIKs.. Amazing!


At the Pasar Siti Khadijah Clock Tower with Tok Abah

They arrived at around 7pm, we had dinner there and then headed straight to the airport with them. Our flight back was scheduled at 10pm so we had plenty of time. After saying our farewells, we went to the waiting area and Mommy gave me a quick shower and changed my clothes into fresh ones. Mommy, Tok Mama and Tok Abah freshened up too. Soon after, there was the announcement of passengers with babies to board the plane first.


At the KB airport. I'm still munching...

This time I was wide awake. Finally I experienced my first take off and enjoyed looking at the view very much. I was fascinated by the tiny lights below us.
A short while after taking off the flight crews gave us cupcakes and juice which I shared with Mommy. The flight took us slightly less than an hour.
I read some books Mommy brought along for the trip and when we finally landed we took turns getting off the plane and took some photos outside.
We waited a while for our luggage and went out to wait for Dadda.


This time, I will not miss the take-off!


Reading the in-flight instructions!


I'm soo excited, I can't sit still!


We've landed back home! That was a FUN journey, wasn't it Mommy? :)

When Dadda arrived he was happy to see me and asked how our trip was like. At home we showed him photos that we took during our trip while Tok Abah, Tok Mama and Mommy told him about the trip. Mommy was especially happy with the flight because apparently, when she traveled with Dadda on a different flight (different company), the crews were very rude to her. Where as in this flight, the flight crews were very polite and were always smiling.


Thank you Malaysia Airlines (i.e. FireFlyz) for the good hospitality! I'm sooo happy..!

So, now you know how my first flight went. I'm definitely looking forward to more 'flying' trips!

Here's the photo album for your viewing pleasure..
13 month - KelateTrip


p.s; My entry for MAS The Great Escapade contest before didn't win me the trip, but I'm hoping to fly with Mommy & Dadda soon!

My First Flight - part 1

Finally, I've had my first flight experience last week, Sunday the 17th of May. Unfortunately though, Dadda was unable to join me in my first exploration of the 'flying world' as he had prior work engagements. The people who witnessed my first flying journey were Mommy, Tok Mama and Tok Abah, of course.

You see, Tok Abah had to go to Kota Bahru, Kelantan for work matters for a couple of days so Mommy, Tok Mama and I decided to tag along! Well, Mommy decided actually, hehe. Anyway, Tok Mama happened to be free too so she decided to join us.

My quest started on a Sunday afternoon. Dadda came out of his training to send us to the airport at around 2pm. Our flight was scheduled at 3pm. I was so excited that I did not have my afternoon nap before that. I took some photos with Dadda at the airport and later Dadda saw us to the boarding gate and waved goodbye. Both Mommy and I were quite sad that Dadda didn't get to join us for my first flight experience.

Tata Dadda.. We'll miss YOU!
We took more photos in the waiting area before boarding. Mommy and I got to board the plane first because they allowed passengers with babies to go first. So naturally, Mommy got to take me aboard before everyone else because she was with a baby and the baby was of course, yours truly!


Waiting to board with Tok Abah. I'm already very sleepy..


Yeay, we're the first to board as I'm the only baby there!


We're leaving on a Jet Plane!!
As soon as we settled down in our seats, Mommy gave me my bottled milk which she had prepared earlier. People were still looking for their seats and keeping their luggage at the top compartment when suddenly, to Mommy's dismay, I fell asleep! Mommy, Tok Mama and Tok Abah were quite dissapointed because they were all looking forward to seeing me experience the take off. To cut the story short, I actually slept the whole way and didn't even experience the landing, sigh. I only woke up when Mommy carried me off the plane so we managed to snap some photos outside.


Slept all the way to Kota Bharu!!


We're here already? The flight soo comfy Mommy!
When we arrived in Kota Bahru, a family friend, Wan Ani fetched us from the airport and took us to the hotel. We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in Kota Bahru. We checked in and after Tok Abah and Tok Mama performed their prayers, we drove to Wan Ani's house at a place called Ketereh, about half an hours' drive from the hotel. It rained heavily so we stayed and have dinner at her house with her kids too. Wan Ani's husband, Tok Amin is working in KL. He comes back by plane every few days so he was not there. After dinner we borrowed Wan Ani's car and drove back to the hotel. We arrived at the hotel at around 9pm and took turns to shower. I had my bath and milk right after. We were all tired from the journey so we went to bed early.

To be continued..

The Great Escapade: Fly ME For FREE please!

You're probably wondering what on earth is the title all about! Well, let me enlighten you...

Our beloved Malaysian Airlines has 9 packages for us to choose when booking for flights. My favourite of all is obviously the 'Kids Fly Free' package. The ultimate reason? So I don't get left behind everytime Mommy and Dadda go for a trip or holiday! Duh!



Mommy and Dadda have this serious need to travel or go for a holiday at least twice a year and every single time I was left behind with Tok Mama and Tok Abah.


Thanks Tok Abah, but I wanna go on a real flight!!

I mean, when is this going to end? It's about time they take me along! The reason given was, as always, I was too little and a waste of money to pay for flight tickets.


Dear MAS, please pick me to go on a FREE FLIGHT!!

Well, I've got news for you, Mommy and Dadda, I'm no longer the little baby I once was and now, tadda... MAS has these lovely, awesome packages for you to choose from and one of it is, guess what? Yes, free tickets for kids! Isn't that just perfect for my first flight ever?

So, now, can I tag along? Please... pretty please..?




Leaving on a MAS Jet Plane.. Hopefully soon...

My 1st Birthday BASH!

I remember waking up that morning quite late, around 10ish. I heard water running in the bathroom, it must be Dadda having a shower. Mommy carried me out of the room to feed me breakfast and outside, watching TV, were Aunty Huda and Mak Lel. They stayed over the night before to help Mommy with the preparations for that day, my BIG day...

Yes, that was the day of my birthday party! Mommy, Mak Lel and Pak Su prepared the party packs the night before and I was thrilled. After breakfast Mommy showered me and after that I sat and watch TV while everyone was busy getting ready to prepare for the party. Mommy and Mak Lel went out to get my cake while I stayed home with Dadda and Aunty Huda to decorate the room where the party was to be held.

Mommy had tried to make me sleep for a while around 2pm, before the party started but I was excited and didn't want to. I was so adamant that Mommy finally gave up and wore me my new dress and got ready herself before taking me to the clubhouse. At the clubhouse, people were starting to arrive. Around 4pm, almost everyone had arrived and were eating and chatting away. Everybody I know was there. There were balloons and presents and a big banner that said 'Happy Birthday Nadyne'.


Dadda holding me infront of my big banner!


Look at all the yummy food. Catering contacts thanks to Auntie Alma!


My Little Einsteins Special Birthday cake. Thank you Mommy!

Unfortunately, by the time everyone had arrived and it was time to cut cake, I was already feeling tired and really, really sleepy. Now I know why Mommy had desperately wanted me to sleep before the party. If only I listened to Mommy, I probably wouldn't be as tired! As a result, all photos taken on that day were with my gloomy face on.


Yes, I'm excited inside, but sleepy on the outside..

Anyway, we did blow the candle and cut the special cake Mommy bought for me. It was in the shape of my favourite cartoon, 'Little Einsteins'. The cake tasted nice too! All the kids who came to my party received a party pack each. Cousin Nadhrah was not there, though, because she was in Sabah with Ayah De and Che De. So, we kept a couple of party packs to give it to her when we see her the week after.


Happy birthday to ME!


Time to blow the No 1 candle!



With my beloved Mommy & Dadda + the Cake..

After eating my birthday cake, everyone got ready to go down to the pool to have a swim. Mommy, Mak Lel, Aunty Huda and Pak Su stayed back to help pack the food and things to be brought back to our house. Dadda took me back first to get myself ready for the swim. Everyone enjoyed themselves at the pool. Some didn't even want to come out, including me!


My guests enjoying a dip in the swimming pool!

Finally, around 7pm I had to come out of the pool because it was getting dark and some guests are still at our house. At home, Mommy showered me and fed me with some milk afterwhich I slept like a log! Imagine how tired I was! Mommy woke me up around 9pm to open up presents. Tok Mama had finally arrived from London and Aunty Min had picked her up from the airport and came straight to our house. Uncle Nuar had also finally arrived.


With Uncle Nuar and our front neighbours...

Mommy put me on her lap and started opening the presents, one by one, telling others who each presents were from. There were quite a number of them and I thank everyone who gave me those nice things.


Gifts opening session. Thank you alll!!!

Another mobile phone, this time it's Elmo!!

We took some photos of me with my presents and after that, said goodbye to everyone. Later that night, after everyone had left, we went out with Pak Su, Aunty Huda, Mak Lel, Pak Long Imal and Aunty Ina. After a long day, we ended it with a nice cup of coffee before retiring to bed.


Me, presents and with my dynamic duo 'Godmothers': Auntie Huda & Mak Lel!

The celebration wasn't over though, we were going bowling the next day and I had fun during bowling too!

So, now you know that I really had a blast and my 1st birthday celebration was unforgettable!
