Oh wow...it has been so long since the last post!
A lot has happened and I promise i will update in the most concised manner possible:D
Let this post be dedicated to the daddies because today is Father's Day.
Happy Father's Day to all fathers, papas, daddies, abahs, abis out there!
As I was scrolling through my instagram feed, I see many dedications to fathers and husbands who are undoubtedly and effortlessly a role model to their own family.
As for me, I celebrate 2 important leaders in the family. My Ayah and my husband. Tiana and Riz's Daddy. Both share the same birthdays but have different approaches in bringing up their kids. Special in their own ways, I am forever grateful to have them in my life.
I disagree a lot with my dad. some of his principles do not agree with me, but without him I am nothing. I can't imagine how life would be without him even though he is quiet at most times. Quiet, strict, but is always there. always. Never once that I am in trouble and he is not there. from being stuck at the side of the road having a flat tyre, right up to guiding me the way to my new workplace. He is always there, all the time, and i still need him even though I am a married woman.
My husband is a great playmate to our kids. he has the most amazing patience when dealing with them, in any situation. I have to hand it to him. I admit I have patience which short circuited ALL the time. I am just like my dad. and therefore it's important that I have someone like him around for our kids. Very blessed and thankful to have him, really.
Last night, we had our first family dinner at our new pad. haha that too, is to be updated. we have finally moved to our new house, our own. we had a nice family iftar together to celebrate the daddies in the family. I cooked a few dishes and decorated my dining area for the family. There was an assortment of ulams, sambal belacan, ikan pari bakar with air asam, sup ayam (by urs truly), and gulai pisang muda (also by urs truly, first time trying MIL's recipe!) we had the famous Alexis Bistro's pavlova for dessert too! yum.
Earlier on, I picked up balloons from Balloon Buzz, Wangsa Walk Mall with this little diva:) These I tied to each dining chair.
Then I printed out a Father's day banner to stick on the wall from here, and made a cake banner using printables from here. simple and nice methinks!
We were celebrating my dad, hubby and my brother, hence "Best Dads Ever"
The famous Alexis Pavlova. ooo look at all those berries on top!
And my gulai pisang muda, baby!
And here is a photo of the guys:
Happy Father's Day again from me:) Celebrate the ones you love not just today, but also everyday.
Til then, lots of love!
