Yeah, Mummy haven’t been blogging for so so long, I know I know. Ain’t my fault. She is just tooooooo lazy to do anything right now. Guess ya’ll should know by now that she is carrying my lil sister in her right? She is currently 33 weeks pregnant and everyday I hear her complaining about aches and stuff. So I guess what I am trying to say here is, don’t blame her for the (very) lack of updates.
So anyway, let’s get to the important stuff here. Huh? what do you mean, ‘what important stuff?’. Me turning 2 of course. It is a huge deal ok. The no 2 is more than 1. I am not 1 anymore, I am 2. Ok? Ok.
Daddy & Mummy decided not to make a huge party this time round because Mummy’s not feeling too well because of the pregnancy. They decided to have a small celebration at home with just family and I think I kind of like it. Reason being, I don’t miss my nap time, I get to eat anytime I want and yes I don’t have to sweat buckets under the sun in my costume. Being at home with your loved ones beats any outdoor celebration, hands down!
Let’s get to it!
Having an animal themed party is the best idea since they know how much I LOVE animals (and ya dinosaurs too. Check out their sharp teeth! And goodness they are SO BIG) so thumbs up Mummy & Daddy on that. Mummy didn’t take long to shop for my mini party because hey you just need a mask for my party. I, however, wore a full lion costume. I very fierce, you scared or nyot?
Roooooarrrrrr!!!!! (are you peeing in your pants or whuttt?)
Moving on, as usual the others also tried to look like animals for my party too (but of course I looked the best) Let me show you.
Here is Kakak ShaSha as a rooster.
Kakak ShaSha made a card for me and I think she is so good in drawing. LOOK!
Right? Thank you Kakak ShaSha.
Next we have Mysha who is a Cat. Meowww…
I have never seen a cat with so much jewellery before. Hmmm.
How about Myreen? She is a cute lil Panda.
I don’t understand why this Panda look cross eyed here. Panda, are you ok?
For the first time ever, Nana decided to take part in dressing up for a theme party. Guess what she is..
A VERY fierce looking lion. I like.
You want to see what Dada looks like? (He chose a very suitable animal, I feel)
Dada Gorilla!! *shudders*
A few minutes later, I found the Gorilla here..
Exercising? Ok Dada Gorilla, well done.
Mama Diah and Papaq become bears and then I remember Mummy telling me bears are usually very chubby and snuggly. Maybe these 2 bears watch their diet.
(nice fringe there, Papaq Bear)
Here let me show you a confused family. Mama & Papa Bear gave birth to a Baby Panda, Cat and errr…Rooster?
Mama E confused me last night. I didn’t know what animal she is, but she looks more like a monster to me. We all ran away from here everytime she comes near us.
She said she will be selling this costume and more at her online store soon, so if you want to look like a monster, stay tuned to find out more.
Look here, Mama E trying to force me to buy her outfit. I just went “hmmm….lemme think about it”
Now let’s take a look at Uncle Bert who looks like a gay fox.
Hehe nice bushy tail there Uncle Bert!
Ouh, and we had someone new joined our party too. Aunty Mandy!
Aunty Mandy, I am not sure which animal you are, but since you are new I will not bully or make fun of you. In fact, I want to thank you for coming. (Please don’t be like Uncle Bert ah, always bully me)
Want to see Daddy?
You must be wondering how Mummy looked like, but she was too busy taking everyone’s picture that she forgot to take hers! A picture of the lion family will do then
Even the helpers in the family participated in the theme. Here’s Aton and Estee!
A picture of all of us (without Uncle Bert & Aunty Mandy because Mummy and Daddy want me to take picture with everyone before I start roaring for real)
Then, they took out the CAKE. So clever ah, take it out at the very last minute so that I will get distracted and they can take tons of photos if me.
Of course I got distracted, just look at the cake!
Can you tell how amazed I am of the cake? Mummy ordered it from Comestivel, Aunty Yati. The cake doesn’t only look good on the outside, but look at the inside. And it tastes heavenly too!
Rainbow cakes are so in nowadays, of course I want one for my birthday too! Thumbs up Mummy, good choice! Everyone loved the cake.
Ok, now for some random pictures taken during the party.
Do you know that Dada and Nana took 3 days to get me my presents?? Do you know that they bought me 6 different presents?? And because they know how much I love animals and dinosaurs, almost all of the presents I got was animals and dinosaurs. No complains, I go to sleep hugging a dinosaur aka Mummy. Hehe.
Sorry you took 3 days to find my presents Dada & Nana. Thank you for all 6 of them! (Daddy is afraid of the lion). To Mama E & Uncle Bert, thank you. I like the snake but because you keep wrapping me with it, I pretend to hate it. (Uncle Bert, you watch out). Aunty Mandy, thank you for the bubble gun, I love playing with bubbles but Mummy said it’s messy and I can only play in the bathroom *sad face*. Uncle Shafiq, thank you for your very funny card and the gift too. I know you are in a jungle somewhere in Brunei right now. Did you get to see lions??? I wish you were here for the party. We had macdonalds and we wanted to order an IB meal for you. Howell. Mama Diah, Papaq and Nadyas, thank you for the books. Till today Mummy still wonder how you managed to get such good books about dinosaurs for me. I love the books by the way. I asked Mummy to read for me every night and then I go to sleep roaring. Sometimes I woke up in the middle of the night just to roar. Thanks to your books.
I had a roarrrring good time turning 2 and because my birthday is so close to my Nenek, Mysha & Myreen, I get triple the fun! Today I will be Ken, Barbie’s boyfriend for Mysha & Myreen’s party. Look out for me later ya’ll.*peace*
Bye Bye for now!
A few weeks ago, a dear friend of mine had to abort her baby girl, who was already 5 1/2 months old in her tummy. I was very much affected by what she had to go through, especially since it was her parents who forced her to get rid of the baby. She really wanted to keep her baby. She begged her parents, but I guess it’s already fated. Her daughter already has a place in heaven. Till today, whenever I think of her, I think of her baby girl. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and so I started tweeting about it. Not surprisingly, I received MANY MANY replies about it and most of them were surprised that my friend’s parents had the heart to ‘kill’ their own grandchild. Well, I guess we won’t be able to know how they feel unless we are in their position right? What if it happens to your daughter? If she gets pregnant out of wedlock, would you force her to abort her baby? Even I don’t have an answer for that.
So anyway, I would like to share with you an email I received from someone who went through a situation just like my friend, except it is a little bit different….
I was reading your tweets regarding your friend’s abortion and it gave my heart a little squeeze. Even though my story and hers is very different, I know damn well what she is going through. I’d msg you on twitter if i could but my accnt is private and you were’nt following me.. so i couldn’t do that.
Let me introduce myself, I am in my early twenties and is a mother to a 4 month old babygirl. Just like your friend, my pregnancy was a secret too. I kept it from my parents for a whole 6 months. But; unlike your friend, I didn’t have the support of my then-boyfriend(who is now my husband) during the first 6 months of the pregnancy. I went through the first 6 months on my own.
I was only 11weeks along then when we found out I was pregnant and we were still deciding what to do with my pregnancy. I was half-hearted to abort and to keep the baby. It was simply.. hard. On the other hand, my then-boyfriend was hell-bent on aborting the baby. We were given a counselling session too before the real abortion. Only thing is, he didn’t turn up. I turned up alone. I didn’t know what I was thinking then, but i gave in to him. I signed the abortion papers. On the day I was supposed to go through the abortion, we were already just standing outside the clinic door but I couldn’t. I just couldn’t. I walked off from the clinic and whatever happens after that.. will remain in history.
Even though she haven’t fully developed in my tummy, she already had heartbeats. It broke my heart into a million pieces knowing that I have to abort this baby in my tummy who is depending on me to live a life . She is not depending on anyone else, but me. I couldn’t just let her down like that. And I am not about to make her pay for my mistake. Afterall, at that point of time, I was already a mother to an unborn child. And I would do what all mothers would do for their children, that is to protect them with all their life.
When my parents found out about my pregnancy, the both of them wouldn’t talk to me. They couldn’t even look at me in the eye. I knew I let them down really bad. And I really feel sorry I brought this upon them because I am also the one among my siblings they had high hopes for. But all I am asking for was for them to acknowledge my baby as their grandchild. That’s all.
I’m really thankful and blessed that my gloomy days was just a passing phase. Everything became better around my 7th month pregnancy. My family were supportive and my then-boyfriend had a total change of his heart. Now, she is the apple of everyone’s eyes. Everytime I bring her out, she surely will bring a smile on anyone’s face.
Everytime I look at her now, I still feel a squeeze in my heart. I can sometimes feel the pain too. This is the first time I ever stood so strongly by my decision. I am not a fighter, I let go of things easily. So this is the first time I fought for anybody/anything. It sure does hurt whenever people give me that doubting look, but I wouldn’t let that stand in my way. In fact, I let nothing stand in my way.
I hope this could be an inspiration to any girls out there who are going through this hard moment.. since your blog have a high traffic.
If you do publish my story,I hope you won’t publish my website too. I do not like getting the attention and many still do not know that my babygirl is made with love out of wedlock. Thank you. ”
:’( Like she said, I really hope her story can help others who are facing the same situation. Even if you are unable to keep the baby, maybe put it up for adoption? There are so many couples who have been trying to conceive for so long but couldn’t.
I don’t know, maybe I am just way too affected by this because I have a baby. I cannot imagine my life without my baby now. Yes, he cries, poops, gets cranky and needs attention and all but at the end of the day, when I look at him sleeping, there is an overwhelming feeling of love for him.
If you are facing the same situation, I hope you will make the right decision for yourself. At the end of the day, it is YOUR baby and your baby is depending on you to live.
It’s me again, baby S. I have a name now, as per mummy and daddy. They call me all the time when they need to make a decision about anything at all. Especially daddy, who only wants MY opinion. I mean, I know I am important and all, but gimme a break man, I’m not ready for the world yet. Let me enjoy this warmth in mummy’s tummy for a little bit longer please daddy? Tsk.
So anyway, my latest meeting with the doctor was few a days back and she said I am now 2.2kg, my head is already engaged ‘down there’ and I can no longer turn. Not fair! It’s not my fault that I’m this big, and now I have to bear the consequences of not being able to twist and turn anymore? Mummy should REALLY learn to control her diet. Boohoo.
Other than that, doctor also explained to mummy a little bit about welcoming me into this world. Mummy must have panicked because she had an intense conversation with daddy afterwards and Daddy had to keep telling her that everything is going to be ok. I hope so too, because I can’t wait to see both of them, just like them who are both excited to see me!
Ok, that is enough talking for now. Would you like to see an ultrasound picture of me? The doctor said it is not easy to snap a full picture of me, so she printed only some parts of me. First picture is a picture of my 5 fingers.
Doctor said I’ve got fat fingers. She was trying to be funny I think, but I was a little hurt by that remark.
Next picture, is my right foot. This is the one that’s been doing all the kicking. Heh heh
I think I look sexaaay as compared to mummy. Want to see her tummy now at 8 months?
There. What a sight. She has been getting stares from people wherever she goes nowadays. Her tummy looks pointed, some say. Doctor said mummy will only grow bigger in the next few weeks or so. I cannot imagine how big she can get. She already look like she is going to burst anytime. Or maybe that is a good thing? If mummy’s tummy burst, does that mean that I will come out flying from her tummy? Weehoooo!!!!!
