Raya 2010 + Birthday + Umayr ++

Raya
This year's Raya was a blast! Ni lah first Aidilfitri kami bertiga (+1) in KL. As usual, the traffic going to KL and back was a bliss, hopefully tak kena 'tembak' by the police. Tradisi my family, selepas solat, 'melemang', rendang, nasi himpit and kuah kacang, we took a day trip back to Raub untuk ziarah kubur Arwah Atuk, Wan and Nyang. Special this year, instead of menziarahi saudara mara selepas itu, we went back to KL and checked-in to Shangri-La, Putrajaya.Of course before that mesti pekena Kow Po dulu di Bentong! That is a must! The retreat was more for mom and dad; a break from their 10 to 10 Cosway shop.The next day we checked in to Izza's, beraya sini sana, Thursday back to my house in no.55 then Saturday to SP because Izza kerja that Sunday.

We managed to meet only a few of my keluarga kembangan and only beraya 2-3 houses je but family Izza boleh tahan jugaklah. Banyak juga rumah kami pergi, mostly houses sebelah MIL. Sakan Umayr berjalan! All that 'Raya-ing' actually no good for Izza. In-fact few days after Raya, Izza ada pendarahan sedikit, went to a specialist dia kata Ihm ok and advised her to rest and limit kan perjalanan. So that was our Raya, yang kesalnya tak dapat nak singgah bershopping di KL and beraya with friends..next time InsyaAllah..


Umayr's First Birthday
Umayr's first birthday fell on Friday, September 17th. Tapi kita awalkan sehari since 16th is a public holiday (Malaysia Say!).Mula-mula nak buat picnic party at Lake Gardens, memandangkan cuaca and weather forecast kata thunderstorm that whole week, we scrapped that idea and proceed with pool party at Abang's. Alhamdulillah walaupun penat, it turned out great! Families of both side banyak membantu especially on foodies, yang datang on-time (specifically Abang Ridzal's yang selalu on-time!) and what is pool party without kids in the pool? Alhamdulillah ramai yang datang mengikut theme dengan membawa swimming attire and gears!

Party Umayr di meriahkan lagi dengan party stuff yang kami beli di Bangsar (next time pergi aku kena beli jugak mask 'V for Vendetta'!) , a huge balloon filled with helium with "Happy 1st Birthday Umayr" wordings on it, balloons, party packs -party hats for the kids, 'imported' soap balloon dari kedai runcit borong di Kedah. We made the right choice of having brownies instead of cakes. Tahan lah lama sikit..cup cakes ok juga, even Izza suggested those cute fancy custom-made cakes yang la ni penuh di internet, but being a cheap-o, alah! daripada cake yang hanya orang appreciate di kala tiup candle and in the pictures, better spend the extras on something else that is more memorable and useful.Anyway ramai cakap that Secret Recipe's brownies sedaaap!..Too sweet for me..


365 of Umayr Sharel

September 17th was my last post for Umayr's 365. Alhamdulillah..terlaksana juga aku capture Umayr from day zero sehinggalah day 365. My biggest obstacle for this project was when i'm not with him, notably during my outstation work to Kuantan and KL, and when he followed Izza to KL and Pangkor. Balik lambat from shopping also was a problem..because by the time sampai rumah je, member dah tidur. Most pictures yang dia tengah tidur tu di ambil di kala kami balik lewat malam la tu.

Since 17th, I've stopped snapping picture of him on daily basis. At times rasa gatal jugak tapi kena tahan. I need this break to prepare for another 365 album starting InsyaAllah next February. So what's next for 365 Umayr? InsyaAllah i will continue, instead of daily, i'll update by monthly. I will try to snap every 17th of every month. Besides that I have another project coming up..have yet to decide on its name..maybe you can help me with that. The album will feature all Umayr's toys. I will snap pictures of all Umayr's toys! Why toys? Haha masa kecik dulu i have a lot of toys, 'mereka' nilah 'sahabat' yang pertama dan yang paling baik di dalam dunia ini. Walaupun 'mereka' ni kawan yang baik, 'diaorang' tak tahan lama, patah lah, koyak lah etc. last sekali buang dalam tong sampah jadi sejarah. Nak cari mainan tu zaman sekarang ni sah dah obsolete.. plus makin tua ni, memories of the toys pun makin samar-samar..Knowing these facts, hopefully this project will able to graphically preserve all his 'assets', dah besar esok bolehlah Umayr take a trip down memorylane 'visit' his 'old friends' and most importantly able to remind him of how his parents have spent zillions of their monthly income, just to make him happy (hahaha). We love you Umayr..hehe
