This is where I want to be on my birthday morning, together with all lovers of Rasulullah S.A.W….
Today is a very tiring yet very satisfying day.
We did not go out today as I was expecting some guests to come over. I was in the mood to do some cooking and was in the kitchen for solid 3 hours. I was very satisfied with the end results of the food that I prepared : Spaghetti Meatballs, Really Spicy Tomyam Fried Rice, Curry Chicken with French Loaf and lastly, Roti Boyan with Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis. Buah Duku was on the menu too. I prepared everything with my bare hands, except for the Roti Boyan which I ordered from a friend and I just need to fry them.
Guests started to arrived from 2 pm till my last guests left after Maghrib. By then, my right arm started to ache due to strenuous movement, I guess. I rested while watching TV with my family, then I started cleaning up the mess. Truly dead beat at the moment.
Nevertheless, the satisfaction is there. Seeing my guests and my family enjoying, savouring my cooking is priceless….
Really unexpected. A genuine surprise.
Right after Afrina finished her tuition, we rushed to one of my KSS sisters’ house. My other KSS families were already there. As usual, we chat, we joke, we laugh, we eat.
Then at one point of time, one of them switched off all the lights. I really thought he wanted to adjust the lighting and was about to ask him what was he trying to do. Then I heard a birthday song being sung by everyone there. For a few second, I looked around to see who’s the birthday person. I realized that it was for ME!! 😀
My KSS sister brought in a cake from the kitchen and they sang a birthday song for me. I was truly shocked and speechless. And I almost cried. Little that I thought they would organized a surprise birthday celebration specially for me. My birthday is on Sunday actually. That’s why I had no idea that they would be celebrating for me in advance. Sweetness!!
Worried. Angry. Disappointed. Furious. Pain. Regret. Tears.
The day I will never forget.
Forgive me, Ya Allah…… 😥
Love it when guests come visiting my abode. This time it’s my aunt, cousins and niece.
Specially prepared Fishball Mee Hoon Soup and Roti Boyan for them.
Nothing much to do after my guests left. All the major housework already been done. So we just did our own things, me with my laptop, Afrina on the PC, Afiqah glued to TV and Affandy playing his toys and IPad. We can’t go out visiting tonight as Afrina has tuition to attend. PSLE is just round the corner. Seraammmm…… 😀
We did go out visiting at night. My MIL called up and we visited FIL’s elder sister who lived nearby my place. Since it’s only one house and it’s so near, I agreed to it.
Every Raya, we will go visiting to Hubby’s side of relatives with my in-laws. This somehow strengthen our ties, not just between me and my in-laws, but also with Hubby’s relatives.
My in-laws came to my house first before we proceed to other houses. Since we only get to meet Hubby’s uncles and aunties once a year or so, we stayed quite late in each houses. So end-up we could not complete all houses for visiting.
After visiting six houses, we called it a day. InsyaAllah, we tend to continue our visiting tomorrow.
