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! (^.^)

Dil, ha ha ha...I tergelak-gelak baca part breakfast and the gifts or shall I say 2-minute-gift from Anas!!! So kelakar!! Amal wanted to make breakfast for me, tapi tengok dia tidor, kesian nak kejut. She got so angry when she woke up! But she qada' semalam - I dah lah kenyang, dia paksa I makan 'dinner' yang dia buat for me - toast!! Then her brother pun nak buat jugak toast for me. Kejap je, lepas tu, "Mummy, I take aaa?" Hmm..what's new?!! ha ha ha

Hahaha! Aren't they all angels Tati! We are truly blessed to have them.

That must be the BEST toast that you had! Made with love..
