Guess what happened this morning? I met Aunty Emy and Tok Cu Bee! Yes, that’s right… seven bloggers (dad, Aeshah, Anisah, Ali, Aunty Emy a.k.a. Royaltlady, Tok Cu Bee a.k.a. Bebee and me) met at Shukur’s Nasi Dagang Stall. Not that we met coincidentally (like how Uncle Azahar met me) but we had planned this meeting the night before. There were also two non-bloggers at the unofficial bloggers meeting; mum and Uncle Syed Mohd Zaid who works as a MAS pilot.

Aunty Emy is actually our relative and so is Tok Cu Bee. Aunty Emy and Tok Cu Bee called themselves ‘Grandma Bloggers’ as they both are grandmothers. Tok Cu Bee told us that she was inspired by Awang Goneng to start her blog (La Vie En Rose) and so was Aunty Emy (Royaltlady). Aunty Emy started hers on her birthday in December 2007. By the way, Aunty Emy was Uncle Azahar’s classmate in year 6 many years ago. Uncle Azahar is another blogger friend of ours whose wonderful blog is Nature Lover.
As we enjoyed our breakfast, we talked about all sorts of things. Uncle Syed explained how did the FedEx plane crashed in Tokyo a few months ago. There was strong wind at the time the plane was landing and the wind was blowing from the sides of the plane. As the plane tried to land, it bounced back and one of the wings grazed against the runway before bursting into a fireball which killed both the pilot and the co-pilot.
At about eleven, we decided to break up after spending more than two hours at the stall. I really enjoyed the meeting and I hope that there will be more bloggers meetings; perhaps with even more bloggers to make it even more exciting. Aunty Emy, Tok Cu Bee and Uncle Syed were really wonderful and I am looking forward to see them again; as we say in Trengganuspeak, ‘Dok sabor doh nok ttemu mata lagi!’
Yesterday the 5th December 2008 was my little sister Anisah Afifah’s 8th birthday. Anisah or Fah or Kafah as how our little brother called her (refer to ‘About Anisah Afifah – Ali’s blog’) is a cute little girl with a very sweet smile.
We celebrated her birthday at about 4:30 pm. Dress in a beautiful white gown and wearing a crown, Anisah look so pretty. She was beaming with delight when she saw the presents.
We sang her the birthday song and she read her birthday cards. Among the three birthday cards I think the one from my mum which was decorated with blue flowers and ribbons from a bunga telur (refer to ‘Eggs’) is the nicest.
After reading the cards, she open her presents. Among them were honey (she loves them so much), a ‘Winnie the Pooh’ document file, a T-shirt with a picture of a flying fairy, Disney princess stickers and their album and a lot more. Next we took lots of photographs of Anisah in her beautiful gown. They would be really nice for her blog.
It was rather late after we finished cleaning up the mess. We then sat down to make her some necklaces and bracelets from the bead sets that she got for her birthday. Mum and Ali made her a sweet and colourful necklace. I made her a bracelet which has the word ‘HUG’on it to remind her that I loved her very much. I also made her a necklace which said ‘SIT’ to remind her that she is a big girl now and must not run and jump around all the time. Aeshah made one which said ‘HUG’ too, ands gave her a big hug. Ali is making one with a dolphin on it but he hasn’t finished them yet.
We wanted to play ‘MONOPOLY’ after dinner but we have to go out since dad had a meeting with his Hadith ustaz, Ustaz Raof (refer to ‘My Hadith Class – Ali’s Blog). On the way home, dad took us to Mc Donald for some tasty ice-creams. When we reached home, I asked Anisah what does she likes best about her birthday. Here is the list…
- The ‘Spot the Difference’ card given by Aeshah. She said that it is fun.
- The ‘Musical Card’ which I gave her. It sang the song ‘Happy Birthday’.
- The ‘princess mirror’. The mirror which was made from plaster was moulded. Painted and given by mum, the great artist who could also make other beautiful craftworks.
- A beautiful flowery backpack which was previously mine. She had been wishing for it for a long time.
- Nicely kept stuff toys which previously belong to Aeshah.
- A packet of Pepperidge Farms Goldfish crackers (refer to ‘Goldfish – Ali’s blog’) which was given by Ahmad Ali. It is Anisah’s favourite crackers… infact it is our favourite crackers.
- A beautiful story book which dad bought at the MPH Warehouse Sale (refer to ‘MPH Warehouse Sale – Ali’s blog’)
Best Birthday Surprise
· Yesterday was the first day WordPress 2.7 (refer to ‘If WordPress 2.7 was a movie – WordPress Blog’ and ‘WordPress 2.7 – Ali’s blog’) is downloadable.
