Arabian Fusion Night

It's a farewell party for the wife of the Ambassador of Malaysia. I decided to make an Arabian fusion theme.. Its a combination between Arabic and Malaysian concept (especially the food). 

Its a colorful party! 
Apologies for the blurry pic. 


Me with the guest of honor


The decoration with "Majlis" Chair.






The wife of the ambassador of Japan is also wearing an Abaya...:)

It was the first experience for me in giving a farewell speech plus purposing a toast. Thank you to my "sayang" for preparing the speech and toast..

To All the good friends that we left behind,
To all the good memories that we kept in mind,
To the challenges that lie ahead,
We bid u farewell Datin
Until we meet again

To Datin Z


We also did poco-poco session conducted by Ibu Wiwik from the Embassy of Indonesia. Before this, we always poco-poco once a week in the yoga room at the clubhouse. But as requested from my friend..I cant upload the pic..sorry guys..

The Arabian dish and Malaysian Dish. I cook all the Malaysian dish except the noodles (it's from Kak Ton).
I also made my first "Pulut Panggang"

When I put the Majlis chair, I dont really think that my guest will sit on it..but i'm wrong...my guests really enjoy sitting on it..its really make the arabic theme alive..

The feminine side of the Embassy that helped me to set up the party 

My Pink Songket

 The Arabic Sweets.


 I named this jelly as Love Potion Jelly..the recipe is from this blog

I use my mom crochet tablecloth..I wish I can make one like this.

I borrowed the Majlis set from my friend .I think I should buy one set to bring back home..so I can plan for Aira or Aisya The Arabic Theme Birthday party.

Stop breastfeed Day Time

I managed to train my baby, Aisya to stop breastfeeding during the day time. Actually, it was quite difficult as I'm not working anymore and I have always been with her at home. It's a different process. 

But we made it.. congrats to Aisya, Aira, papa and myself! It's our family success. Thanks for all the cooperation to make this mission a success.


Aisya now is enjoying drinking formula milk using bottle with her sister Aira. Time flies really fast..Aisya is a big girl now.

She can't fall asleep at night without breastfeed. Before this, when she want to sleep she always play with my  shirt or "tali" from my pants while breastfeed. But now, she just rubbed my face until she falls asleep..


But the PROBLEM is....in the middle of the night, she will cry and asking for "susu mama"...and she refused to drink milk from bottle!..she kept crying for hours and sometimes she lost her voice.


But its okay, we can try it slowly..hope everything turn out well..


Amin..

Crochet + T shirt = New T shirt

Refashion...a plain t shirt into crochet t shirt..


I bought this T shirt a fortnight ago for 1.500 Bahrain Dinar (about RM11).


Its a plain T shirt.


 Last week my husband and I saw a lot of T-shirts from Forever 21 that have crochet pattern on it, but the T-shirt turned out to be so expensive. So, I decided  to put some crochet pattern on my plain T-shirt.


I'm a beginner in crocheting lace patterns, I only knew how to make hexagon pattern from this book.



But, for this T shirt I made some adjustments to make it to be circle pattern..


The funny thing is, all this while I thought that making the crochet is the hardest part of this redesign project. Apparently, it took even more effort to stitch the completed design to the T-shirt, as my still aching back can testify.


New T shirt

Tadaa!!!
