8.8.2014 - Firas turns 6!

Syukur Alhamdulillah, our small family gathering cum Firas’s birthday celebration turned out well and proceeded as planned. Being a mak yong who is still in the early stage, I had to take an off day on Friday to do the prep i.e. do the shopping, siang ayam daging, masak nasi impit and agar-agar, etc. Me and hubby also had a quick outing to Jusco for my birthday’s lunch treat and scouting for Firas’s birthday gift. I’ve also intended to bake a marble cheese brownie the same day, but the plan did not materialize anyway. Too tired already plus we also had open house jiran that night which the mommies (especially!) mkn2 and borak like nobody business from 9.20pm until almost 12 midnight! huhhh

Saturday came, I hit the kitchen as early as 4.30am. Sambung siang daging (semlm tak sempat kiki), stopped for Subuh prayer and started the cooking process. Line ups of the day – nasi beriyani, ayam masak merah, kari daging, acar timun, nasi impit, lontong, sambal ikan bilis, serunding daging, rendang daging (import mak punyer hehe), agar2 gula Melaka, kek lapis Sarawak (bos kasik), watermelon and air oren. I don’t have a big rice cooker, hence need to cook the nasi twice.

Penat? yes definitely. I had to take panadol that night, mmg sakit kepala yg amat. Happy? of course!!! Seronok dapat jamu orang2 tersayang dengan hasil air tangan sendiri yg tak seberapa. Most importantly, the chance to strengthen the loves n bonding that already exists amongst us, that’s priceless. Our kids especially the birthday boy pun mmg sgt2 hepi dapat celebrate besday dgn cousin2 mereka…Alhamdulillah.
Do we want to have another round of makan2 next year? Insya Allah. tapi catering la kotss hihi…tak larat la nak masak utk ramai orang. Kudrat dah kureng…baru masak sikit dah sakit pinggang yg amats.
