It's been quite sometime...

I know it's been quite a while since my last update so I'm gonna make this quick, simple and non-draggy.

So, a lot of things have happened in the month of August and September, and I mean a lot!

First thing's first... the August birthdays...

There were Paksu's on the 10th, Tok Abah's on the 15th, Mommy's on the 17th and Kak Nadhrah's on the 21st. Mommy's birthday fell on Nuzul Quran day so she, Dadda, Pak Su and Adida were on leave but not Tok Mama. Tok Mama eventually decided to apply for leave too since everyone was not working on that day, hehe... The night before, at the stroke of midnight, Dadda and I wished Mommy a Happy Birthday and we wrote it on my board. Oh, and I did a card specially for Mommy too!

Dadda tried to have a surprise birthday and baby shower party for Mommy but it didn't really happen because firstly, it was during fasting month so we were more concentrating on fasting, breaking fast and the Terawikh prayers at night, second, only Selangor had the day off and most of Mommy's friends are working in KL, third, it was raining so heavily that day that everyone was stuck in a bad traffic jam. Nevertheless, some did turn up. Aunty Uma, Uncle Gerard and Jadrien came. She made a huge cake for Mommy and brought some cookies and food.

Uncle Nuar and Wan Ki came too. In the end, we had a simple and cosy gathering amongst close friends and family and it turned out really nice and sweet. Mommy was happy for everything except for the fact that I had a fever at the end of that day and it lasted for days!

When we went to Papa and Mama's house in PJ that weekend, we had a small birthday celebration for Kak Nadhrah.

Anyway, since all their birthdays were in August and it was the Ramadhan, Tok Abah had said earlier that the August birthday dinner treat will be after Eid in September. And so...

The Eid arrived...

We spent Raya eve and the first day in PJ this year. We also visited Tok Nong's house on the first day evening and drove back to Rembau straight from there. The next day, we went to Adida's house in Muar.

Just recently, we finally had the postponed and long-awaited August birthday dinner promised by Tok Abah at Le Meridien.

It was such a wonderful treat! The food was really yummy and we had fun!
Thank you Tok Abah :)

Coming real soon...

July happenings...

July is almost over.

Come 1st of August, Muslims around the world will celebrate the starting of the holy month of Ramadhan where fasting starts. Let me tell you what I've been doing in the whole month of July, the month prior to Ramadhan.

On the 2nd of July, we celebrated Dadda's birthday. Mommy and I gave him a jersey of his favourite football team, Liverpool FC with the name of his favourite player at the back plus tickets to see them play here in Malaysia a couple of weeks later. We had 2 birthday dinners, one with Mommy's family to celebrate both Dadda's and Wan Ndak's birthday and the other with Dadda's family, to celebrate the birthdays of the July babies, Dadda, Tia, Ayah Ngah and Che Ah.

Tok Abah, Pak Su and Tok G left for Mekah to perform the umrah on the 6th for 2 weeks.
So, only Tok Mama and Adida were in Subang while they were away.

The next day Mommy and Dadda celebrated their 4th year wedding anniversary. We didn't really have a big celebration but Mommy bought a small cheesecake to be shared amongst 3 of us and I had all the strawberries on the cake, yum! That weekend, on the 9th Dadda, Mommy, Tok Mama, Adida and I travelled to Johor Bahru for a weekend getaway. Well, it was mainly to attend Tok Naim's (Tok Abah's best friend) daughter's wedding there but to us, especially Mommy and Dadda, it was like an anniversary holiday. Although it was only over the weekend we had lots of fun at the wedding, hotel and on the way back, stopped by to visit Nek Wan in Rembau.

Tok Abah, Pak Su and Tok G came back recently and they bought a lot of souvenirs for everyone. I got 2 jubahs and several t-shirts from Tok Abah. Of course they brought back dates, raisins and chocolates too plus other souvenirs from Jordan (they went there first for sightseeing before proceeding to Madinah and Mekah).

Besides all these, I attended other weddings here and there and we also went to a Hi-Tea held by Mama and her friends to celebrate the arrival of Ramadhan. We've moved to Tok Abah's house in Subang Permai and will be staying there until the baby arrives as Mommy's getting too heavy to be climbing up stairs to our apartment in D'Rimba.

So, we're slowly settling down and preparing ourselves for fasting month.

I still haven't decide if I'm going to start fasting, though and while I think hard on my decision, I want to wish all muslims Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadhan and Happy Fasting!

May this holy month brings joy and rezeki to all of you who embrace it :)

My trips with CIC so far...

As some of you might already have known, I attend the Children Islamic Centre (CIC) in Kota Damansara. Since I turned 3 this year, I was allowed to attend the 4 and 5 year old classes too and they have so many fun school trips all year round. My head teacher, Teacher Zana allows me to join my seniors in some of the short and interesting trips.

So far this year I've gone to 2 school trips. My first trip was to the National Zoo with my seniors from my branch and also other CIC branches around Damansara and Taman Tun. Mommy woke me up really early that morning. I almost fell asleep at the shower! We went to another CIC branch at the The Strand, Kota Damansara at around 8am.

Who's more excited? Hehe. With my beloved Teacher Zana. It was raining that morning..

I said goodbye to both Dadda and Mommy before they left. After having breakfast there, we left in a school bus. Teacher Zana took a photo of me with her phone on the bus and sent it to Dadda.

The MMS pict sent by Teacher Zana, on the bus to the Zoo! :)

When we reached the zoo, the other students from other branches were already there, queuing up. We did a light exercise together and started our mini exploration of the zoo to see some of the animals there.

Light exercise? More like chicken dance!

Thank god I was wearing a new pair of sports shoes Mommy had bought months earlier. She bought them just because she liked it, not knowing that I would really need them now for this trip. So, thanks Mommy for having this obsession for shoes! I think I was the youngest among all the students there.

Yes, you read that right, it Adidas Stan Smith! Thank you Mommy!

In the afternoon, we headed back to our respective schools and waited for our parents to come and fetch us. I brought back a bunny hat and some other merchandise from the zoo. It was an exhausting day but I had loads of fun.

Ready to go back.. Pakai topi pulak.. :)

Told Dadda that I wasn't tired after the Zoo Trip, but 2 minutes inside the car... Zzzzz....

My second trip was to a hypermarket just nearby our school. That trip was also for the 4 years and above but Teacher Zana asked Mommy if they could take me along. It was during the Health & Science week and we were there to learn about food especially fruits and vegetables. This time, we didn't join other branches as each school went to hypermarkets nearest to them.

So, when we went to the Carrefour accross the road from us, others went to other Carrefours or Tescos near them. I learned about the food, names of fruits and vegetables and at the end of the day, we took pictures together and went back to school with some goodies.

Our trademark 'PEACE' sign whenever there's a camera in front of us!

I'm really looking forward to my school trips in the future.
I really enjoyed my trips so far. I wonder where will we go next...

Have a look at the album slideshows below of my CIC trips!
Thank you CIC!

What happened during my school break...

I had 2 weeks break from school recently. During that time I still went to my playschool (CIC), but I didn't have to wear my uniform and we didn't have to attend classes. So, we did some activities, watched some TV, slept and played most of the time.

Last week, the 2nd week of my school break, I didn't go to school everyday. Dadda wasn't around as he had a meeting in Terengganu. He left on Tuesday together with Papa & Mama. They were also going to Terengganu to attend a wedding on Thursday. So, I went to school on Monday but on Tuesday, I followed Mommy to her medical check up with her doctor, Dr. Nor Ashikin. She scanned Mommy's tummy and we finally found out that the baby is a 'boy'!

I was actually quite disappointed to have found out that it's a boy for I had always wanted a baby sister. But now, I've learned to accept the fact that I'm going to have a baby brother and am really happy and excited and can't wait for the baby to come.

Anyway, after learning about the great news, I followed Mommy to her office in KL. There, I met Mommy's friends like Aunty Mary and Uncle Terry who is a radio announcer there and yes, Mommy works at a radio station. They were in the midst of moving a new and better office so the old office was in a huge mess. I had my books and the iPad to keep me occupied while Mommy finished off her work. At around 4pm, we carried some stuff into the car and headed to the new office which is much nearer to our house. Aunty Mary and Aunty Farah followed us in our car.

Peace with Aunty Mary

Playing with bubble wraps with Aunty Jackie & Uncle Terry!

That night, we had dinner with a friend of Mommy's from her previous office before she started working with this company. Aunty Adi was already waiting for us when we arrived at The Curve around 8.30pm. The next day, I had to go back to school but after school we had dinner with Tok Mama, Tok Abah, Pak Su, Adida and Mak Lel at Sri Thai restaurant in PJ.

Yes, we miss you Dadda, that's why we had to dine at fancy restaurant! 

THREE is the new PEACE!

On Thursday, again I followed Mommy to her old office. This time I had a friend. Aunty Mary had also brought her son, Jayden. I had a lot of fun with him playing and running around the office. The 4 of us went out to the nearest McDonalds for lunch and at the end of the day, before we left, we took pictures together. Mommy had to carry a lot of stuff to the car because she was on leave the next day and they were to start working at the new office on Monday.

Inside the studio for the very last time with the RedFM crew!

I went back to school on Friday. That night, Dadda came back from Terengganu and we picked him up from PJ. He bought me and Mommy a new pair of kaftan dress and I ate 4 turtle eggs they brought back from Terengganu that night.

I hope I'll have as much fun when the next school break comes just as I had last week.

Make sure you read this too!
