Two weeks ago, we all went to Rebung to celebrate Tok Ayah's birthday.
Does that place ring a bell to you? Yes, it is our celebrity Chef Ismail's restaurant!
We were very lucky that Chef Ismail was around at that time. Because he made us a special Rendang Tok upon the special request from the "Birthday Boy"! Tok Ayah was also given a free Pulut Durian -- on the house!
The good food coupled with the nice ambiance completed the luncheon. They serve local food there -- from various types of lauks, through to various types of desserts.
Needless to say, Tok Ayah was one happy "Birthday Boy" on that day!
And then, recently mama and papa took me to my second boat ride. The first time was at Mines. This time around we went on a cruise at Putrajaya! Although it was an enjoyable ride, I still feel the one at Mines was way better because I could see beautiful fishes swimming around! This time around however, I saw many monumental architectures surrounding me.
Oh did I tell you that Tok Ayah, Tok Mak and my cousins also came along? This is Mummy Na. She's literally my "mummy" because she is my milk mom (ibu susuan). You see, when papa fell sick last year, mama had to stay with papa in the hospital to look after him. So Mummy Na offered to look after me and fed me with her milk when I got hungry at night.
Mummy Na and my parents are very close, you see. We go to many places and do a lot of things together. Last time, when papa was a bachelor, he used to stay with Mummy Na in Bukit Jelutong because Tok Ayah & Tok Mak were still in Johor then. Even when I first got to this world, Mummy Na helped us a lot and threw in a lot of helpful advices as to how to handle me as a baby. She's a mom of four but still look like a bachelorette!
Anyway, all the the basking under the hot sun was making me tired and thirsty.
That was when mama tried to make me drink plain water using a straw. I didn't manage to get the water up to my mouth at first, but after a few tries, I got the hang of it and started slurping the water from the straw for the very first time!
Thank God the boat ride was just for 45 mins. After that, we were off to Floria Festival!
I have three words to describe this event : Beautiful
Some are designed into shapes of numbers, cartoon characters, animals, princess dresses, and a whole load more.
I definitely had a good time feasting my eyes there, that by the end of the day, Tok Mak even called me "Mat Bunga"! Heehee!
The day was filled with so much excitement that as soon as we got into the car, I knocked out straight away. It was nevertheless, a beautiful day out with my big family. :)
For those of you who have yet to visit Floria Festival in Putrajaya, you may still do so by this weekend! The festival is open to public till 18th July 2010, so don't forget to bring your camera and snap loads and loads of pictures! :)
