I am so happy to be typing an entry on my blog about MY birthday. SO yes, have you heard that I turned 29 yesterday? Old news. I don’t feel any different from when I turned 28 last year…except err…I am a mother now. A very happy one.
It’s really hard for me to believe that I will be 30 next year. I remember making fun of my kaklong when she turned 30, calling her old and all. That was 5 years ago and I was 24, what do I know? But I also make fun of Diah when she turned 30 early this year…so I guess what I am trying to say is, some things never change. I am still very childish at 29. HAHA.
Speaking of which…there is one more thing that will never change when it comes to birthdays. Home party at the in laws with glorious food cooked by mak and daddy in law and our ridiculous themes. THAT will never change. It might just become a family tradition. It was especially special because everyone was there and everyone dressed up according to the theme.
And since it is my birthday, I get to choose the theme that I want and I decided on ‘ROCK’. Pretty easy right? So I thought. ‘aiyah…just slap on some eyeliner, black lipstick, Mohawk hair and done!’ I should have ‘think out of the box’ as per what Diah says. The rest of them are so creative! I know I don’t stand any chance to win this time round. DAMMIT.
So anyway, before I scare you with our individual pictures, I shall first show you the nicer pictures taken before we transformed ourselves.
FOOD cooked by mother in law. We are all so lucky don’t you think? Mak loves to cook especially if its for her family aka US. You should see the look on her face when we are all seated and eating the food she cooked together as family. She looks satisfied. Thank you mak! You are an awesome cook!
Cake from ‘Awfully Chocolate’ is sooooo good!
Shan already changed to his pjs.
The girls and me! Diah Mastura & Ili Diyana, where were you?!
“happy birthday to you….happy birthday to you…happy birthday to aan/kak nurul/ mapley/nurulaini..happy birthday to you….!”
Nobody else is interested in taking nice pictures nowadays. The rest only wants to dress up according to the theme and get their pictures taken. Bottom line is, we all love taking ridiculous pictures.
Are you ready?………
ANDA MAU ROCK??????
(ok lah, some of these rockers are not really rockers la huh…some are just MAT rock)
Innocent rocker Shan who only wants to bite everything.
MAT rock who went “Like Johnny Depp right?” 135634127391824 times.
See what I mean by NOT thinking out of the box? I look like I am about to host another Rock Elektra show. (super sore cos I rarely win any theme party!!)
This is a ROCKER people would call “dah relak ah”. That star on his left eye is so crooked, must be his daughter’s ‘project’. But look at him properly..he must have some relation to..
The I-am-so-cool-I-have-pig’s tail-hanging-out-at-my-back rocker.
This is a rocker who looks like Avril Lavigne.
The pretty rock chic.
Who say ‘Rock never dies’? This one sure wants to die.
The Rocker Rascal with blingbling on his face.
The ‘angry face’ Nadya rockers.
So who do you think is the most ridiculous looking rocker?
I would like to thank Mak & Daddy for always ALWAYS celebrating each and single one of our birthdays without fail. Thank you Ili & Bert for being there. It meant a lot to me and of course mak & daddy. Thank you to Sofia Dendroff for being so gung-ho about dressing up. Thank you Shafiq for ALWAYS participating no matter how tired you are. Thank you Diah for just being you, forever so silly but indirectly sweet towards me. Thank you Tatek for NEVER complaining about the theme we choose and for going along with anything at all, you are a great sport! Thank you Nadyas for being so cute and geyamzzzz!!!! Thank you dear husband for the beautiful gift and for accepting me for all that I am. Thank you Shan Ehan for your existence, you complete me.
