Which is who?

26th December 2011

Look at the pictures below. Can you identify which picture is mine (Syafi) and which is Safwan's?

What a striking resemblance, right?

Relaxing at the beach

11th December 2011

It's been a while since our last picnic at the beach. Finally in the morning today, our parents brought us to Muara Beach for some playtime fun. Unfortunately some of the roofed seating areas were under renovation, as such we chose a shady spot under a few trees and had our picnic.

We didn't go for a swim because of strong waves. Instead, we played with the sand using toys that we brought from home. We then searched for sea shells to put in our fish aquarium but luck was not on our side. What's important is that we had a great time!

It was baby Syifa's first time at the beach and she seemed to enjoy the sea breeze.

Safiya's belated birthday party

3rd December 2011

As promised to Safiya, we finally organised her birthday party today. Mummy has fully gained her strength and our baby sister is also big enough to receive lots of visitors at the same time. Like last year, Safiya's party is held separately for her school friends and family members.

The afternoon session is for her school friends and we were all happy that everyone had a great time. The castle and pool bouncers prove to be a big hit and we were lucky that the weather was fine.

We also had a "fishing" game for different treats and presents.

For the afternoon session, we had crunchy chicken in pita breads, spaghetti with meatballs, fruits and milo tiramisu for dessert. Safiya's birthday cake was in the form of vanilla cupcakes with fresh cream icing created by our one and only mummy!

In the evening, we had Safiya's second birthday party especially for family members. We also had doa selamat for the arrival of our baby sister. Since it's dinner time, we had heavier meals. We had rice with grilled chicken, udang rebus (fresh prawn soup) and sayur rebung. Mummy made lots of the spaghetti from the afternoon and so we served it as well.

We had two birthday cakes, one for Safiya and another for mummy's brother, bungsu Hazim, who's turning 18 in two days time.

To our surprise, Ngangah presented another "cake" for daddy, mummy, Safiya and baby Syifa ~ a lamb shawarma in a gigantic burger bun.

Oh my! Safiya was the happiest at the end of the day because she received lots of birthday gifts this year. Just look at the picture below!

Milo tiramisu

2nd December 2011

Originally, our family is not a huge fan of tiramisu. Of course another downside is because of its coffee content which makes it not suitable for kids our age. However, mummy now finds a way to make kids-friendly version using milo in place of the coffee. It's also easy to make since no baking is required.

As for the taste? Its yummy-licious! Everyone loves it!
