Happy 7th Birthday Princess!


Last two weeks, she brought home a science homework from school. It was about taste - sweet, salty, sour and bitter. A word caught my attention under the category 'bitter'. I didn't know we have 'teh bulan' in english. Even if it referred to teh cair often served at kenduri-kenduri, it cerrtainly doesn't taste bitter, right. She told me that TEA-MOON (the one she wrote) was actually TIMUN - spelled in English!
'Ala, timun yang makan dengan nasi lemak tu Ummi. Kan tu pahit. Sebab tu Kakak tak suka'

Last week pulak, after her cries and screams in APSH's A&E Unit (when they drew blood for test), she bought herself (means -> she picked and I paid) a Barbie Mariposa storybook. On the way back she announced to me and Tebby..
I'm going to reading books forever - She said
To read, not to reading - Tebby corrected
Do you know what forever is? - Tebby asked
Hmm - Kakak thought for a while
Forever tu sampai meninggal dunia lahh - her answer

Today, the girl I gave birth to on 080801 at 2.20 pm, is 7 years old. She's bringing along two Moist Chocolate Cake from Secret Recipe to Atfal to celebrate with her friends. We haven't got her the present yet but I supposed we're going to buy a watch as she was bugging for one months ago. I am contemplating of buying another cake for a family celebration during the weekends. I hope she'll like it.

I got a lump in my throat while typing this. I don't know why I often got sentimental when it comes to Kakak. Maybe because she's my firstborn. Maybe because she's my only girl. Maybe she's the only child I gave birth to without the help of vacuum? I don't know. I'd better stop listing all the possibilities as my list semakin merapu dah tu.

Anyway.

To Kakak, Happy 7th Birthday.
Ummi, Abah, Iman and Adam love you.

ps - Update: she doesn't want a watch anymore. Instead she chooses a series of princesses' story books. Nanti nak kena pi beli nih.
