It started out as a mundane Saturday morning; woke up early for his uncle’s majlis aqad, picked up the in laws, witnessed the aqad and yada yada yada. You know, mundane lah. Setelah selesai by noon, I was sweating profusely and couldn’t wait to get home, take a shower, change into something comfy and just chill and do nothing. Man, was I surprised.
Aku buka pintu rumah and there they were. My girls. Throwing me a surprise baby shower. And I couldn’t help but screamed my lung out, I swear I must have pissed off some sleeping neighbours. The husband said aku jerit macam rumah kena masuk perompak. Far’s baby son Umar siap menangis, mungkin terkejut dengan pekikan nyaring aku. Kah kah. But really, I was shocked macam apa! Kemudian biasalah perempuan drama jiwa lemah lembut, teruslah menangis teresak-esak sebab terharu.
Apparently they have been planning this for about a month or so. And Hubby was part of the scheme. Funny how I did not have any idea about this langsung! It was truly an awesome, pleasant surprise. Thank you so much, girls. And you too, Hubby. You guys are the best! OK enough with the bebelan and on to some pictures.
OK here’s another one of the above shot, now with Far and her son ready.
How time flies. Tiba-tiba kami sudah/bakal punya anak/anak saudara. Terasa sungguh dewasa. Bukankah baru semalam kami were a bunch of teenagers berhingus di sekolah undang-undang?
Game time! The girls prepared some games with pressies. Fun fun fun time!
Ini pertandingan Teka Saiz Perut AM menggunakan benang.
Mazia won and got the pressie from Far. Elin got second place dan dapat hadiah from Naem. Far kalah teruk sebab dia ingat aku gajah agaknya, punyalah panjang benang dia potong. Cheist.
Ini pemenang game tulis-tulis. Something like the Boggle game; I give you 1 word and you’d have to derive more words from it, which naturally is my favourite. Too bad I couldn’t participate. Kah kah. The word was Iskandar (Far’s son’s second name) and Dod and Amy won the game!
Then we played movie charade. That’s Amy the shy game host.
Hubby (still clad in his baju melayu from the majlis aqad) joined in and did some dancing motion. Nasib baiklah ada wife dia boleh teka pergerakan dia and guessed the movie Shall We Dance lalu memenangi pusingan itu. But our team lost it to Dod’s team. They were good. Heh.
Kemudian majlis pemberian hadiah! My little one got a lot of pressies from his aunties! Tengok, masih dalam perut sudah disayangi sebegini. Hehehe. Say thank you to your aunties, little one.
Suka suka suka baju comel. Can’t wait to dress him up dalam baju-baju comel ini.
The rest of the day, we talked and laughed like there’s no tomorrow. Oh and eat as well, thanks to Elin yang sediakan and tempah all the yummy foods. Thanks to you girls yang sanggup datang dari jauh. Terima kasih sebab susah-payah plan the shower, I know planning and mengumpul semua orang is a hard work sebab semua orang ada commitment masing-masing nowadays. Seriously terharu, tak tipu punya. Thank you!!!
It was definitely one of the highlights of my 2010. Awesome, awesome day. Aku tidur senyum semalam dan bermimpi rainbow and butterflies. Ngeh. Thank you for everything, darlings.
You guys rock my world!
