Hasya's sleepover weekend was officially over 2 hours ago when we sent the last of her friends home. Phew...
All in all, I think the girls had a fun-fun time with us :)
The girls - Ali*, Na*ia and Elmi*a followed us home straight from school after their Sports Day on Saturday, and after taking their shower and all, they locked themselves up in the room and watched some DVDs. Not just ANY DVDs. I can bet my right arm that they actually watched whatever they could of the whole of Hasya's Bratz and Barbie DVDs collection that afternoon.
Lunch was served at 1.30p.m - I settled for Spaghetti Bolognaise and boiled sausages (healthier option than fried sausages, no?) and they thoroughly enjoyed the food. Everybody had seconds, and I didn't have to prepare anything for tea as everybody was still VERY full at tea-time.
After lunch they went back up to the room for a few rounds of DVDs and PS2, but by 7:00p.m, everybody was ready for our dinner out. We left the house after solat Maghrib, and we decided to go to the Sec*et Rec*pe in SD as we were pretty sure it would be a nightmare to find parking at One-U at that hour. Ayah could have just dropped us first but he might have had to go a few rounds to find a slot before he could join us for dinner there and by the time he would have found a parking space the movie would surely have started! So, to play safe - SD Sec*et Recipe it was.
We left SR at 8:45p.m and reached One-U just after 9:00p.m and went straight to G*C while Ayah went to find a space to park his mini-bus. Syukur Alhamdulillah, he managed to join us just before the movie started. Ayah had already bought the tickets on Friday night, so we didn't have to join the long Saturday night queue at G*C. It was Nim's Island - Hasya's own choice (much to the disappointment of K.Long Hanna who wanted to watch something else - but, I told her that it was Hasya's weekend and we should let her choose her preferred movie).
Anyway, the small girls enjoyed it, the small boy Hilman semi-enjoyed it because according to him, "Mommy, it was not the same as what was written in the book, Mommy... It was supposed to be this and this and that and that...bla bla bla...". He had just finished reading the book last week, you see. So, ada sikit rasa tidak puas hati there. Hehehe! As for Hanna, errrr...I think she slept through the last half hour of the movie! As for Ayah and I, I think it was just so-so. But, I have to say that Abigail Breslin who played Nim was simply awesome. And just to let you all in into a secret - she made me cry a couple of times during the movie...Sobs!
We reached home just after 11:00p.m, and after a hot Milo each, and brushing their teeth, the little girls had a "make-up session" in the room using Hasya's new make-up set which she got from her Aunty L*nn as birthday present. When I went to check on them at midnite, they were all under the duvet watching one of Hasya's Barbie's DVD, and I left them with, "Make sure you all go straight to sleep after you finish this movie, okay? Promise me that you all will not watch another movie after this, ya...because Hasya and Ali* have to wake up early tomorrow. They have their dancing class, okay?". To which all of them replied, "Okay, Aunty...We promise. Good night!" Ahhhh....such sweet girls...
And then Hasya kissed me on the cheeks, PUSHED me out of the room, and LOCKED the door! Sigh...
Sunday morning, I checked on the girls at 8:00a.m - and they were still under the duvet, watching a DVD! It was as if I had just left them 5 minutes before that! "Hmmmm...did you all just wake up OR you all did not sleep at all last night watching DVDs?", to which the girls replied with giggles, "No la Aunty...we woke up very early tadi!" Phew...that was a relief! I was scared that they would go back to their parents and tell them that they were up all night long at Aunty Shana's house watching DVDs when it was supposed to be a SLEEPover!
For breakfast, the girls helped me make Cheese Omelette with their own choice of toppings (they could choose from sausages, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, diced onions, and of course - cheese). We also made pancakes. Everybody wanted to break the eggs, and I thought, "Why not? They can take turns to do that!" Suffice to say, we didn't only have eggs in the bowl and the frying pan - they were also on the table AND the floor. Nasib baik ada Daryati to clean up everything...Hehehe!
After breakfast, I called D*da (Hasya's and Ali*'s dance teacher) whether it was okay if Na*ia and Elmi*a follow just to watch the girls dance, and when D*da gave the green light, all four girls (and Hilman, of course) were bundled into Ayah's car at 10:45a.m and off they went to PJ.
I must have dozed off on the sofa right after they left, and only woke up when they came back at 12:30p.m! (By the way, Ayah and I have decided that our 3-seater sofa in the living room tu "berhantu" because anybody who lies down on it will definitely fall asleep within 60 seconds! Hehehe!) Ali*'s Mama had fetched her from dance class herself as she had her piano lesson after that, so there were only Na*ia and Elmi*a left.
Anyway, all my headaches on the weekend menu was pretty much unnecessary as we received a lunch invitation from Ayah's cousin at Bukit Utama. We asked the cousin whether we could bring the whole platoon with us and he said "Yes, of course - there's plenty of food!", and I felt so relieved, as it meant that I wouldn't have to slave over the stove that afternoon. Hahaha! However, Elmi*a's Mom called to say that she had to fetch her as her great grandma who was very ill, had been asking for her. She came by the house to pick up Elmi*a just before 2:00p.m, and we only left for Bukit Utama at 2:15p.m. And so, there was only Na*ia left.
And of course, our "lunch" invitation dragged on to tea-time and also to a BBQ do by the swimming pool, and we only left Bukit Utama at 7:15p.m! Off we went to send Na*ia home and we then had to follow Ayah to the hospital as he needed to see one of his patients. We only left UMSC at about 8:15p.m - tummies very, very full, but mind and body very, very tired! But, it was a good weekend for all, I think :)
Here are some pics. Enjoy!
