My darling princess' (Shasmeen) birthday on 8-11-2009, her third! She had been asking for her "...birthday to you!!.." so I thought, why not. Haikal had his share in August. So of course, it's mainly about "princess".... The 3 stooges...
First thing.. this is our house (after all the renovation)... The tv area and one looking out to the "garden with no trees"
Couch from main entrance & shoe cabinet... and dining + 2nd living hall
My fav: our dry kitchen... and the cool green grass by the terrace
D MEN behind the barbeque........ and it's officially used now...
and the results: chicken & kambing!!! sausages too.......

All in all, even though our initial caterer "ditched" us almost the last minute... everything turned out good... soto, karipap sardin, agar2 nangka, Putri's desserts... and of coz the bbq kambing & ayam (marinate pagi tu je).... and Meen was happy at the end of the day.... lots of presents that she adores, if not all of them... that she was also willing to share with sis Sarah & bro Haikal.....
Pagi tu flight kul 10-ish so Mun sent us to the airport about 1 hour before (sebab rumah dia dekat)...flying back to Gold Coast first... queue was long so pintu dah nak tutup & we had to rush... dah le takde stroller... hancus! We took our rental car & then headed for GC Surfer's Paradise area for our Whale Watching tour pulak. Had dinner kat Maharani (Malaysian/ Singaporean?) restaurant near Hard Rock cafe.. and then head back to the airport for our flight home.
