The White + Yellow Birthday Party

Last month, we attended a birthday party from my husband's side. It was Faaz, Faiqa & Falisya's second cousin's birthday. It was specified in the invitation card that the dress code was white & yellow.

We had no issue with the dress code, at all. All of us has white and yellow in our closet, except my husband. Sorry la dia nak ada yellow shirt/t-shirt. If ada pun, it would be his Brasil jersey which is not suitable at all :P Because of this, I dressed up Faaz & Fadzil in white, while twinnies in identical white + yellow dresses (so lucky that they can still fit into these Carter's Summer dresses!). As usual, mommy will be the odd ones... takde geng :P

 Nayra and Naqi
The first two who got dressed early.
So cute to see that Faiqa has slowly starting to pose..hehe



and later came the miss "supermodel"
Naturally she posed as I click the capture button on my cammie

It was supposed to be a mommy-daughter OOTD pose but it failed!
Dengan selipar rumahnya...disaster sungguh :P

The party was held at a multi purpose hall near a swimming pool located on the 5th floor of a condo, where baby Shafeena lives. The surrounding view was beautiful! Since we were among the first to arrived, we took the chance to walk around the area...

 Cheerful Faiqa posed for mommy as we walk towards the hall :)

As we walked inside the multipurpose hall, we can see most of the decorations were in yellow + black. Based on the settings and deco we predicted that it would be a grand birthday party for a one year old kid...we were right!

My darlings posed at the featured wall..

The birthday cake..


Faaz and his daddy, both in whites. 
They even have a red carpet for this party ok!

Me and cousin Sarien yg sweet :)


Faaz latest hobby; to snap photos...some were ok, some were blurred :P

Love this candid of us by Faaz.
All four of us looking at different area. Am still figuring out the reason I smiled to my right side. Hehe :P

The party started right after Maghrib prayer with dinner, and followed by performances from magic shows and clowns. When we first saw the men wearing clown costume, both me and hubs looked at each other. We were worried of Faaz Naqi (he has the Coulrophobia syndrom, fyi). Lucky he was cool at that time because those men didn't put up their make up for the first half of their performances...

However, when one of the "clown" asked the children to sit at one of the corner so that he can give some shaped balloons to each of them, Faaz refused to join. Even after we told him that he might get the "sword" balloon. Surprisingly, while we were busy convincing Faaz, Falisya; the most clingy child that night suddenly got up and walked towards the clown and when he asked her if she wants a balloon, she nodded shy-ly. Oh my gucci! Tak sangka ok!! Haha..

Seeing her twinny sister went in front, Faiqa then followed suit and got herself a heart shaped balloon. Thanks to the "clown" for being considerate, he then went to the back and handed a sword shaped balloon to Faaz...thank you :)

After the half session of performances, came the cake-cutting ceremony. The close family of baby shafeena all dressed up in yellow and black, including the cutie pie :)

Good girl didn't cry at all! ;)

Among my three children, I gotta praise Faiqa that night for being so jovial and happy. You can see that in most of the photos she was smiling, dancing, singing and clapping hands. She totally enjoyed the party that at one point, a cute punjabi boy even went to her, grabbed her hand and brought her to his mom. Awwww...hahaha!

Faiqa with her first fan :P
Too bad it wasn't a clear photo :(

Falisya on the other hand chose to tail everywhere I went like a glue. >.<

During the second half of the performance, the men painted their faces and became full clowns and that made Faaz became stressed. Pity him. We tried to persuade him to let go his fear using logic (since he has seen the guy's face before he painted his face), but it didn't work out. At last I suggested to my hubby that we stayed outside the hall and let the children enjoyed the dessert; ice-cream.

"Dont be afraid abang, Faiqa is here for u.."

The girls enjoyed their ice-cream to bits. Sikit-sikit suap daddy...jeles ok, mommy takde pun :P. But not Faaz, he still in stressed mood... :(


So as soon as they finished up their dessert, we called it a day and made a move before somebody went back home and have a nightmare...*sobs!

Happy Birthday dear baby Shafeena! Such a lucky girl you are being sorrounded by much love from the entire family. May you grow up to be a good Muslimah and success in your life. Thank you for having us! :)
