Happy Birthday Arissa

My youngest daughter turned 12 yesterday. Naturally, Arissa was very excited about her 12th birthday do. She kept asking me about the food, the cake and presents for the past few days. I decided to bake a chocolate mud cake with fresh blueberry for her pre-birthday celebration that we did two days earlier at the Cyberview Lodge, Cyberjaya. The main menu of the evening was satay kajang....her favourite. Arissa being Arissa, she was rather clueless that evening as she was adamant that birthdays must be celebrated on the day itself. No kompromi la...
So she was a bit 'off' that evening and she didn't eat as much as she should be. But the rest of us, makan dengan riang rianya.
Upon reaching home, Arissa being Arissa was counting the minutes to her birthday....the real exact date. She refused to acknowledge that we have had already throw her a birthday party. Dia buat derk aje......susah betul anak bongsu sorang ni...To make it worse, on her birthday I won't be around for the whole day as I was attending a seminar in KL (hence the early birthday celebration).
However, since she still clearly expect a birthday do on that day itself, we decided to have another round of makan-makan after I come back from the seminar.
It means that my husband has to take over the task of organising the makan-makan. Although we agreed(and with Arissa's request) to simply serve Domino's pizza, my husband surprised Arissa and the rest of the household when he made a marvellous butter cream cake and a yummy spaghetti bolognese. Arissa was simply speechless.

To my darling Arissa, 'Happy Birthday' and here's hoping you have a very happy future
and feel the heartloads of love so many, many people have for you!
