Parties and parties...
Our large extended family has had quite a busy weekend. There was the gathering to mark Saffron Sunday last night. The kids were absolutely thrilled to bits to hold a lighted candle each... must have been reminded of Malam Raya celebration, although we explained to them earlier what the occasion was all about.
Earlier in the day, there was a joint birthday celebration for Nik Adam Haris, Adam Johari and Heikal Mazlene.
Haris turned 12, Adam, 8 and Heikal 7. Haris is the eldest son of my sister, Lalin, Adam is my grandson and Heikal is Nina's only son (for now, that is).
The birthday bash was held from 10-am -1.30pm at Glacatica's "Starship" at One Utama's new wing. The party was later adjourned to my dad's house in section 16, Petaling Jaya, to allow the older cousins, uncles and aunts to join in the celebration. As usual, there were a lot of food like - pizza and more pizzas and all types of pizzas from Domino's and Shakey's.
On Saturday, my sister, Azah, organised a small birthday "do" at her Subang Jaya house for Hajar and Umar - the children of my late sister, Eda. This is the first celebration they had without their beloved "Umi". Hajar turned 13 and Umar, 15.
