Maryam was telling me that she's sad and was asking me on why nobody came to our house on her birthday. I told her that her birthday is on Wednesday, a working day. That is why we didn't invite our friends to come over and celebrate. Her friends cannot come since their parents need to work etc. What made her more upset was that her daddy wasn't at home too! He was away in Melbourne for work!
We thought that by celebrating her birthday at school can make her happy and that would be enough to hold just one celebration. She was actually looking forward to meet her Malaysian friends, I guess - Harraz, Dzakirin, Ayra, Adam, Amani etc etc..So, there goes another celebration at home last Saturday.
Alhamdulillah, all went well. Most of our friends came although it was a long-weekend (Good Friday-Easter Monday) which was a good time for holiday with family. Furthermore, the school break has just started. All in all, everything was good. Alhamdulillah!
We had tomato rice with Ayam Masak Merah and acar, noodle soup, red velvet with cream cheese frosting cake, apam senyum, fruit cocktail jelly, chicken nuggets and also the chocolate birthday cake.
