February Birthday Celebrations

As mentioned in my previous post, both my sister in-law and my mom's birthdays falls on 11th February. We had the birthday celebration for Reen on the day itself and postponed mak's to the weekend.


Thursday, 11th February

Usually, we will have a family dine out before went back home for cake cutting ceremony but this time we had an early family dinner with Mama home meal cooking as my parents in laws were flying off for a holiday the next morning (takut terbangun lambat hence miss their flight).

as usual, my boy will be busy "helping" to cut the cake :p

We had a simple cake cutting ceremony then. There were 11 of us including Uncle Farouq & Aunty Mun. Memang havoc! Few days before, Papa asked me to secretly invited Reen's BFFs to the dinner, which was the surprise of d day :)

the BFFs (MIA: Noreen & Ab)...aren't they sweet? :)

Owh, did you noticed that she changed her attire? The dress she wore was our gift to her, together with a matching pendant. FYI, Reen dolu-dolu was a tomboy. Although she is more ladylike now, she hardly wear dresses..so that night, we decided to bully her a bit :P
See Reen, told you ..everyone agreed you looked really lovely wearing a dress! (wear it frequently will you? ;)


awwwh... :) Reen is so happy to get a designer wallet from mr boify.


Last but not least, family photos! :)


Alaaaaa...Reen pejam mata :P

See my leg?? Nampak cacat disitu
I was losing my balance when my hubby suddenly grabbed me the very last minute :P


Sleepy Faaz indicating that it's late and its time for everyone to doze off :)


Saturday, 13th February


We went back to Gombak early that morning to spend the CNY holiday with my family. At first, the plan was to take the whole family out for lunch and celebrate Mak's birthday but apparently we had to attend a close family friend's wedding at Putrajaya. I told my sister to hide the cake and pastries I made in the fridge while my mom was in her bedroom, getting ready.

Us, at the wedding

When we arrived back at home, I asked my sister to distract Mak in the kitchen (its kinda easy as my mom was so busy entertaining her beloved grandson :P) while Fadzil and adik took out the prezzie from the bonnet of the car and place it in the hall. We covered it with a pashmina and set it out as a mini table, putting the cake and the cream puff on top. Mak was surprised when we called her and sang the Birthday song to her..

Half frozen cake, freshly came out of the fridge and some cream puff

I know..I know..the cake deco was damn ugly. (memang kena masuk class macam Anne..huhu). Owh, the chocolate design was made together by me and Faaz dengan terketar-ketarnya.. haha! It was an experienced to remember! :) By the way, my mom loves my cream puff so much, siap mintak recipe..It was a great honor for me to get a compliment from the greatest chef of mine...weee!!

See what was Faaz doing in this photo :P


After sometime, then only she realized and questioned us about the "mini table". It was then we told her that was her prezzie which we were so lazy to wrap..hihi. Later that evening, we went to Bora Ombak for family dinner.

The hungry patrons patiently waiting for the food

Faaz n Mak Ngah pegi tgk fish

The dishes we ordered that night

The place is surrounded by few mini ponds and gazebos, Balinese concept. Nice and cooling. There was a live band performing too. We ordered our favourite Balinese dish, Ikan Nila Goreng (The dancing fish), pandan chicken, kung pao chicken, seafood tomyam and fried kailan with salted fish. Surprisingly, there was nothing much to shut out about the food tho..The Ikan Nila and Tomyam were ok but the rest were so-so. Quite disappointing actually. If you are a fan of the dancing fish or kung pao I would recommend House of Sundanese and Cozy Corner instead. Much tastier. But this is just my humble opinion...different people different taste, different view, rite? :)

Later, we had fried banana fritters with ice-cream, ice-kacang and banana split before we went back home.

Oh ya, since this entry is a birthday entry, I would like to wish Happy belated Birthday/Happy Birthday to all Februarians that I know...Hayy, Uncle Farouq, Faiz, Tasya, Nana, Ayong, Sood, Suresh, Nazreen, Aida, Nuurill, Oman. Ramainyeeee :)

Nadine said...

Jannah,

hihi, bkn nampak comot ke? :P
true Jannah...its a survival thingy kn.

Mak Nadia ni dlm masak memasak very particular. So dulu masa bujang Nadia jarang masak depan dia sbb nnti mesti ade je yg slack :P Bila dia kluar ke, balik kg ke..time tu la Nadia conquer dapur.

Hihi..now dah duduk lain2 rumah senang la. Masak dulu then tapau bawak balik rumah mak :)

Nadine said...

Mas,

A'ah..since dia final year kot berat naik mendadak. sian jugak kat dia, sbb dia bkn jenis makan banyak. portion nasi aku makan lg banyak dr dia. Tp tula, she's addicted with chocolate...hihi.

Itula..Nanti Mikhail masuk setahun lagi banyak ragam dia Mas, mostly melucukan. Seronok!

Hihi..nampak cam sedap kan. Tp so-so je. Hampa gak aku..

Nadine said...

MOMMY NADIA said...

owh tidak Nadine..sb Adam tak boleh nak jadi pengkritik tetap aje..kalau dah pandai cakap mesti kena komen aje mommy dia ni..

MOMMAHOLICSURI said...

Nadine tipu Nadia.... she's really good in cooking tau!!! esp baking baking ni which the hubby and Faaz sangatlah lucky. hehehehe :)
Yerla Nadine, tiap kali u post entry bab whatever dish you cook or bake..mesti look tempting sangat sangat. Kalau mea lah kan, nak buat entry masak..setakat daging masak merah, sup sayur..kekeke... malu nyer!!!
TQ for the wish dear. :)

Mrs. Ishamizu said...

Happy birthday again to ur mom n ur SIL..:)

Wahhh Nadia smpt buat kek n creampuff! jelesyaa...izu xsmptla kt umah ni ngan gurgals ni..msk simple2 je mcm Nuurill kata tu..Nuurill, xyah malu2..kita sama je...:D tp kn klu blk umah mak br ada can nk masak ke baking ke sbb ada org tlg layan gurgals ni..hehehe...klu tak asek nk menempel je ngan umi dia ni..hadoi.

Nway, doesnt matter abt the cake'sdeco..yg ptg rasanya sdp n ur usaha tu utk surprisekn ur mom..i'm sure sume tu sdp, yummy...sbb mak Nadia siap mntk resepi tuh ha..;)

Nadine said...

Mea,
Owh tinggi sgt pujian itu. I dont deserve it. Kalau nak puji kena rasa dulu ok..ntah2 tak sedap. Nampak je mcm sedap..haha!

Eh, tere la jugak tu masak. daging masak merah kalau org tak reti masak x menjadi ok. Akceli masak simple2 la sbnarnye sedap tau! :)


Izu,
I understand that..Izu ade dua kids kan, mmg agak susah nak cari masa. Nadia untungnya Faaz kalau kat kitchen, letak je stool menghadap pintu dapur...dia akan duk situ main dgn kucing, feed roti kat kucing ke. He loves cat so much so senangla jugak. Tp slalunye Nadia akan tidokan dia dulu before baking2 ni.

Ic..terbalik kita. Nadia kat rumah mak mmg jarang masak sbb my mom very particular. she wants everything dr bab potong2 sampai cara masak sume ikut her protocols. Nadia ni plak suka freestyle..heeee. Kalau balik Gombak cuma tolong2 mak je la. Kalau dia takde br Nadia conquer dapur :)

Mrs. Ishamizu said...

Oo mmg mcabar Nadia ank 2 ni..hehehe...sorg tdo, sorg lg xtdo...yg xtdo tu kacau yg tgh tdo..huhu...tu yg Hisham xbg bli oven dlu tuh..dia kata mana sempatnya izu nk baking2 ni...:D Faaz sng ek, xbyk karenah..untung mommy dia..;)

Nadine said...

Cee D,

Lupa pulak..rasanya ye kot. Baju tu Mama belikan utk Faaz masa dia pegi Penang haritu :)

RuZaNNa said...

Rajinnya you bake the cake and the puff.. itu pun sudah A for effort ok.. the final outcome is not that bad ok.. you'll be good once you learn the techniques.. so don't feel bad for yourself since you did a good job! :)

dyana "his other half" said...

7 biji dirembat fadzil? ahahaha. no wonder ada 4 biji ja. cd heran juga napa nadia bawa 4 biji je untuk mak nadia. hehe.

Nadine said...
