He is now 4 years old. Only 4?

Yes, my son is a December baby. That means if he goes to school he will be one of those kecik lil kids who has yet to mature like other kids in his class. I initially planned to host a Dinosaur themed birthday party but of course it just didn’t happen because penat decides to join in the game. Lately it has been a bit exhausting at work hence this short break is very welcoming.

This year Hazeeq’s cake (Hamlet) is from Baker’s Cottage – not my favourite but better than Kings Confectionary. Italy Cake House still reigns the top of the chart for birthday cakes.

He’s already got 9 new toys to play with. I haven’t given him my present. It’s accumulative. It will be there when he is 13. Ha ha.

This young man will forever be my beloved firstborn. Gosh I adore his flat kemek nose and that little dimple on his right cheek – cute anomalies inherited from his maternal side of the family tree (moi). It’s amazing to see a little infant blob growing into a proper human at 4 years old – who can role play comic characters with you or crack a kiddie joke. And this is despite having a mother who feeds this blob with junk food most times. I vow to serve better food when he goes to kindy or setting foot in Primary One.

I hope he grows up to be a young man who is kind. Who is smart and witty but kind. Kind men attracts kind women (i hope) and good karma. I hope he learns the value of sacrifice and hardwork. That money may not mean everything but still worth something. That family always comes first  – a concept that I’m still struggling to grasp and adhere to for I’m a borne workaholic.

I wish him all the happiness and luck in the world. I wish that no Evil shall lay its eyes or hands, not even a shadow on him and drag him into a world of misery. I wish that he may not have to experience war and hatred, far from being a victim of racism or Islamophobia. That he can continue to be an obedient Muslim without having a gun pointed to his head or his family being torn apart. I wish him the best of both worlds – Here and Thereafter. Insya-Allah..

Pseudo consultant – planning the party

I  do everything on my phone as a lot of people do.

Yahhh.. despite giving a heads up to colleagues and staff regarding my current 14 days annual leave. I am still receiving calls from the hospital regarding patients and rosters. At times I feel like throwing the phone to Istanbul and hope Beto will send it back. Ngah ngah ngah. Shhhh..

On a lighter note, I am happy to have spent some quality time with Baby Zeeq who will be 1 years old this Saturday. Already, his mother, especially is super excited as I plan to organize this little party of 5 with him. yalah.. what to do? Mr Husband is not here with me as he is working very hard to accumulate his moolahs and assets.

Im not good with themes but I suppose no one could ever go wrong with chocolate cake.

My best friend Pinterest listed many good options I could try. The list starts from this ..
