It has become a tradition for the Abus to invite a couple of close friends to partake yee sang with the family every Chinese New Year. More often than not, they are friends/colleagues of the children.
We had a jolly good time at the Royal Lake Club last night, with yee sang followed by dinner. That's my adopted son Jason (in white) who's been part of the family since he was a boy in shorts.
Also this year we had a new addition at the yee sang table. Here's Nawwar with Zul, her hubby of five months. Looking pretty tembam, both of them. La dolce vita, eh...
That's the mother of all phones you're using, Cheron! Fuyoh, very retro and pink kaler summore! Apparently, one just have to hook the humongous receiver to one's standard phone and voila! 1954 is here!
Last Saturday Pak Abu and I took a drive to Jeram, Kuala Selangor, to attend the wedding of a friend's brother. Nice laidback place, Jeram. Could feel the kampung atmosphere. Close to the coast, too. Found out that land is still reasonably cheap in this corner of Selangor. A decent-sized bungalow plot by the sea at RM25-40k, we were told.
To Emy Dzafrul and Nor Fazela: "Selamat Pengantin Baru, semoga hidup aman bahagia dan dikurniakan zuriat yang soleh dan solehah, dan semoga ikatan perkahwinan kekal hingga ke akhir hayat."
That's our host, Nor Hafidzah a.k.a Melur (the groom's sister) in orange tudung. Melur's an HR supremo somewhere in the city. Heard through the grapevines you're about to become 'orang Dungun' (by proxy).. betul ker? Kalau betul, tahniah la. The lady in pink is my karaoke 'partner-in-crime' Rahayu (a.k.a. Kitty).
Nothing like a cup of frothy cappuchino and lightly buttered scone with cranberry jam to perk up one's morning. [So do nasi lemak sotong, roti canai garing-garing, and teh tarik, by the same token].
Here's Awang caught napping on Ann's bed (when she was away holidaying with friends in Kuantan) over the weekend. Check out Awang's kaki.. bersilang simpuh sakan.
Of course this one, Lillie, will never stray far away from Mommy. She'll plonk herself wherever my laptop is. And before you know it, one leg will be resting on the computer....
