BBQ @ summer in Oxford

My family is here. The whole family. Izad just graduated from Colorado School of Mines, and decided to take a detour before going back to Malaysia. My parents and sisters are here for approx 15 days to see our place, and of course to hold their 1st grand daughter for the 1st time.

We've been planning to have a BBQ since we have the space to do so. We've invited some close friends over to join our small gathering.

I suppose there's no word to describe my feelings right now. Content, happy, and blessed. Alhamdulillah.

Picnic@Millets Farm

On Sunday, Kak Tik & Bro Din invited us to join them for a picnic at Millets Farm. This place is great for family's outing; they have relatively large area for picnics, playground for kids, restaurant, farm shop, fruit picking and garden warehouse. We had ice creams too, and it was ludicrously delicious! (mine strawberry 'seduction' ice cream with real strawberries in it!)

Please ignore the 'bulging' tummy. I know, the baby's out, but the fat is still there! hahaha..

We're planning to bring the Wahid's clan (my family) to Millets Farm. I bet they going to love it. :)

Allotment Kak Tik@Wolfson College

Saiful came to visit on Saturday, and Kak Tik & Bro Din invited us all to their house. Had a lovely 'nasi kerabu' (mind you, I had seconds, as usual!) and Kak Tik took us to her allotment. She's very passionate about DIY gardening and she knows a lot about what and how to plant. I took some photos for our future references... (hehe, we've started our own gardening too, more stories here)

Took some photos around Wolfson College. Ah.. I love spring/summer.

Aqua babies

Wanted to get Mawaddah into swimming as early as possible. Just my luck, got this decent swimsuit for her for just GBP2.99 from the charity shop.

Ibu, let's go for a swim! (yes dear, we have to wait until you're 4 months old, ok?)

It's a small world after all.

Assalamualaikum wbt

A friend of mine wrote something about six degrees of separation in her blog not so long time ago, and I assume everyone of us had experienced something like this before.

My good friend from my UTM years, Naz, came for a visit, and we took her to a small gathering here in Oxford. She ended up meeting her long lost neighbour from her childhood (Umi), and their mothers (Umi's and Naz's) were once schoolmates.

I've been living in Subang Jaya for almost 25years now, and recently I've found out that Umi and her family have stayed in Subang Jaya before, in fact their house was near to my parents' and we went to the same primary school. She's 1 year older so we never had the chance to meet.

Umi and I were born in the same hospital, Assunta Hospital, but of course different years.

It is definitely a small world after all. :)

At the age of 3 (months)

By the age of 3, Mawaddah is able to;

.....'cepuk' Ayah's (and Ibu's) face when she's annoyed

.....lying on her front on her own

By the age of 3, she had 3 immunisations;

1. BCG
2. Diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis/polio/Haemophilus Influenzae
3. Pneumococcal infection

...and she's one tough baby, I tell you. (After immunisation no.2 and 3, which were done on the same day, she went back to sleep!) Alhamdulillah. By the way, she's due for another immunisation end of this month.

Despite of many comments about introducing 'dummies' to babies, we chose to give her one anyway, just to help her to sleep. Once she's asleep, she lets go of the dummy herself. :)

That's all for now. Will update from time to time.
