Mother’s Day 2008

I know this entry is kinda stale already albeit the event happening four days ago. It should have been posted before the Anugerah Band Episode 2 review but I did not want to blog every day, preferring instead to space things out so I won’t run out of ideas on what to type every other day. I really take my hats off to whoever that manages to blog on a daily basis, better still if they can post multiple entries in a day.

I’m sure most of us celebrated Mothers’ Day last Sunday in our own special way, with the special ladies in our respective lives. Likewise, my family too celebrated in our own way, an exquisite time for all of us to meet and catch up with each others’ lives. Three families (my mum and her two sisters) came together and all of us had a hearty lunch at Marina Square‘s Tambuah Mas Restaurant. Gatherings like these are always welcomed by us, moreso now since the additions of the little ones (Syahindah, Syadiyah and Eshaan) to our brood.  However with the HFMD virus still lingering in the air, we opted not to bring Syadiyah along. Me on the other hand, was well enough to see the world after a week of being confined at home.


It felt funny having a hearty lunch after eating nothing but porridge for the most part of the previous week. Felt bloated but someone had to finish up the Bergedil & Tahu Telur. Since yours truly treat both like Sambal Belacan, everyone seemed to hand over their left overs to me. There goes the 2kg I lost over the past week. Hahahah. Anyway, apologies for the non-photographs of what we ate. Was simply too engrossed eating to take photographs of our menu.

Eshaan was a little moody at first but he became very chatty when the food was served…

Syahindah looks like my elder sis when she was younger. See the similarities in smile and shape of their noses???

When the little ones felt restless, the young parents took them out from the restaurant and went over to the 3rd floor where there were kiddy rides just outside Kiddy Palace. The fun part was that the rides were so huge that even the daddies could sit together with the kids. And so me and cousin Ezaad had a good 5-minutes on the elephant and cow that we rode. The kids also enjoyed themselves thoroughly judging by their smiley faces. But before we took our rides and whilst waiting for our turns, we bumped into popular Malaysian actors Hans Isaac and Awie, fresh from their Malaysian Film Festival promotion at nearby GV Marina. They were there to promote their latest offering “Cuci“. For some reason, Hans declined to be photographed and he was walking with a limp all the way. Julie was of course excited at the prospect of meeting Awie and immediately informed her colleague who is head over heels over the guy. Turned out that they too had lunch at Tambuah Mas when we returned afterwards but we did not disturb their privacy from then on.

Obviously Syahindah wasn’t interested… Hahahaha…

The daddies rekindling lost childhood with their kids…

After lunch, all of us went to another cousin’s place at Strathsmore Avenue to see his newborn child. If the name of the road sounds a little unfamiliar to you, I do not blame you cos it was the first time I’ve been there myself. It’s actually in the Queenstown area just opposite the tallest condominium in Singapore. The houses here, even though it’s under HDB, are bloody expensive. Imagine a five-room flat costing close to half a million dollars??? But you can’t beat the view which faces the city skyline, and of course its close proximity to town. I think that’s the main reason why the prices of the flats there are expensive. I remembered widening my eyes and baulking at the price when my aunt suggested buying a flat in that area. She was fortunate that she bought it for just over $230K three years ago. I’m happy where I am, fine thank you, with the MRT, Bus Interchange, Polyclinic and Compass Point just a 5 minutes walk away from home.

Welcome to the world Eva!!! And congrats to Wira & Nani, the proud parents…

Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.
