Seems like I’m on a weekly post now, and it’s all about my weekends, heheheh… Oh well, weekends are what we all look forward to anyway.
So last Saturday and Sunday was another full fledged weekend. Early Saturday morning, we were at Masjid Negara, attending a relative’s solemnization ceremony. The tok kadi arrived late, like, an hour plus late adding more jitters to the soon to be husband and wife. Kesian kesian. The rest of the guests however kept busy by chit chatting and Chemps had fun exploring the mosque with her second cousin.
The tok kadi finally arrived and Alhamdulillah, the solemnization process was over quick and smooth. After witnessing the beautiful pledge of marriage, we had a little something to eat and headed off to the next occasion, which was my office colleague’s wedding in Shah Alam. We didn’t have our GPS so had to rely on the map provided in the card. Thank God we managed to find our way.

“This is me!” she said
There was quite an impressive spread and the three of us had a good time filling our tummies 😀 After which, we went to say congratulations to the bride. We hung around a bit as I actually wanted to take a picture together but she was a little bit too occupied (the bride was EVERYWHERE! hahahaha) so we had to leave as there was another function to get to.
Didn’t get a pic with the bride, so I took my babies’ picture instead, heheheh
We got home with enough time to let Alisha have a nap, and us to freshen up. Then, it was off to a birthday party! Zaza and Hashley threw a lovely little bash for their princess Khaisah, and what a clever venue they chose too! It was held at the playground nearby their house, so all headaches to keep kids entertained was easily overcome.

After singing the birthday song, and many chitchats later, we went home all set to get ready for the next function! Craayyzeee right? Hahahahah! The moment we reached home, Alisha wanted to play with the bubbles she got in her party pack, so we let her have a few minutes of bubble-time.
Alisha busy blowing bubbles, Daddy busy tangkap nyamuk, hihihi
As we were chilling outside we bumped into Adam’s cousins next door. They just got back from their Europe trip so OF COURSE I had to go say hello! Alisha and her second cousin Kasheif ended up playing bubbles and catch. It was so cute to see them having such a great time.

It was only about half an hour later that we went into the house and rushed to get ready for another wedding. So with the end of the night’s wedding, that concluded our hectic Saturday. Phew! I feel tired just thinking about it, hahaha!
Come Sunday, I was up bright and early, packing our bags for a day trip to Janda Baik! The husband had a YMP programme to attend and he wanted us to come along as there was a little river at the venue and he wanted to let Alisha have her first dip in a river 😀 So off we went!
For the first half of the day, we mingled with those at the programme. Chemps of course was lapping up the attention from everyone. I think she made more friends than I did that day. We also attended a Q&A session and a little talk by Sheikh Yahya. It was informative and light, just the way I like my religious programmes to be, hehehe… nothing too heavy. Then after the programme was over, came the part Chemps was looking forward to all day, MANDI SUNGAI!!
Initially the husband said to just let her dive in with her clothes on. Of course my proper Chempedak princess would have none of it. She insisted on putting on her swimsuit, “nak simming lah!” she said 😀
The water was cold as you would expect, but she loved every minute of the whole new experience.
So that, my dear Doodlers, was what we did last weekend 🙂
