With d many many major events filling up our weekends, we had to manoeuvre swiftly to accommodate our 'much demanded' eid open house. Decided earlier that today is d day n suddenly I got d letter this week 'requesting' for my presence at d convocation ceremony...n to sit on stage pulak tu!! I obliged as it was d session for d graduating planning students...but once they were done...puff...I magically disappeared from d stage while d event was still on. Probably David Blaine-cum-Copperfield pun bole kalah.
With regards to our eid get together-gether, d turn up was great n d weather was very pleasant alhamdullillah. Our schedule showed that we would close shop at 7pm...but biasa la kannn...we were still entertaining our guests even past 10pm. Our menu: home-made nasi lemak [sambal udang n/or bilis], pulut + kuah durian, mee jawa (kuah import from S16 as per normal practice] n various other kueh-mueh. We had fun hosting d guests n hopefully they were happy as well...

Dr Zin n wife arriving...tak sangka that they're coming. While Salmi, our Fresno-era friend, was just leaving. His son [in topi] was really into MJ n his face lighted up when I called him Mr. Jackson...hihi
Mak talking to Fuad, Ha [some called him as long lost cousin] n d rest of d geng
