Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day to all mums, mamas, mummies, mothers, maks, ibus, ummis & emaks!!
It was a FANTASTIC Mother's Day yesterday in Danau Kaseh. Our kids, led by Chef Adlan, prepared breakfast for mama & papa: scrambled eggs, sausages, toast & cheese boritto! Adlina made the tea. Wow! What a wonderful way to start my morning... Well, until after breakfast of course, when I had to CLEAN UP the MESS they made in the kitchen!! Sigh... the JOYS of Motherhood! :-D
Thank you so much for all the lovely presents: from Adlan (a poem he wrote himself), Hakim (a red rose & a hand fan), Adlina (a white rose, a hand fan, a magnet & cute card) & Anas (a token he got from the cereal box. As expected, he asked for the token back as soon as I opened the wrapper).
We had lunch with Mak & Apak. Mak called me earlier in the morning to ask me what I would like to have for lunch. Thank you so... much Mak for the Nasi Tomato & Ayam Masak Merah. My all-time favourite! Happy Mother's Day, Mak! You are the best mother in the world & I pray that one day I could be half as good a mother as you are to my children.
We ended the day with a trip to the movies to watch "The Ironman"! The movie was quite good. But what's really great is we spent the evening together as a family. Mother's Day yesterday was so special & filled with warm, fuzzy moments.. <3
Here's the poem from Adlan ~
My mom is like an Orchid,
So delicate and beautiful,
She always make me happy,
And washes all my troubles away.
Have a great week to all mothers out there!
Footnote: Today, Adlan is in the Star newspaper!! Check it out here. How exciting for the oh-so-proud kay-poh mother! (^.^)
