Great weekend...

I received this SMS from Ab*d - one of my MT friends at 6:29p.m, on Friday 5th December -

Are u interested to join me for Es*o Dinner tomoro night? Faizal tahir is the guest artist.

My reply -

VERY interestd maaaa! Where? How much? Theme? SET!!! M driving now. Will call later.

As it turned out, the dinner was at The Pa*ac* of Go*de* Ho*se*, my ticket was on Ab*d, and the theme was "Fantasy Night".

As it was quite a last minute thing, I could not think of any good fantasies that I could translate into my dinner attire. So, I just put some black clothings together and went as Woman in Black. Boring. I know. I'm a clean girl. No fantasy whatsoever. The fantasies that I MAY have had may not be suitable for public exhibits in the first place, anyway. HAHAHAHA!

Ab*d went in a gorgeous turqoise top with a pair of smart black velvet pants, as she could not think of what to wear, too. Her initial idea was to go in a smart working suit because she said her fantasy was to become the CEO of the organization. Hey, I wouldn't call that a "fantasy", dear, but rather "an aspiration". Very achievable :)

And Faizal Tahir. What can I say? One word - SUPERB. And if I may add a few more words - SO HOT and so chomei!!!

But, alas...No photos :(

I didn't bring the camera, but I tried snapping some shots using my phone. Memang sakit hati and sakit jiwa coz' punyalah delayed reaction! I would snap the pics, say at 10:22:25 p.m, and the images would only be captured at say, 10:22:32p.m and by that time, all I could get was the back of Faizal's head (or worse - somebody else's head!!!) AAAArrrrrggghhh!!! Tapi, tak per...yang penting I WAS THERE, and at one point he was just 2 feet away from me!!! Tak bernafas I selama 15 saat you all...Hahaha!

We left the hotel at about 11:35p.m and reached Ab*d's place at Vi*la Da*an*ar* around 12:00 midnite. I had parked my car there earlier in the day, and we had coffee while waiting for Ayah to come to "escort" me home - jadi my outrider. Sayang jugak kat bini. He wouldn't allow me to drive alone at night, even though Ab*d's house is just about 15 minutes away from ours. Anyway, Ayah came just after 1:00a.m, and joined us for coffee. We only left Ab*d's place about 1:30a.m.

Thank you, Ab*d, for being my sponsor. And, oh ya! Congratulations for winning the Lucky Draw for the RM400 shopping vouchers! Can sponsor my shopping, too, eh? ;)

And this morning, we attended Ayah's friend's kids' birthday bash at Shangri-la KL. It was the daughter's 3rd birthday, and the son's 7th birthday. There were bouncy castles, face painting, tatoo painting, painting/drawing booths, and some game whereby you have to grab some silver/gold papers flying in this inflatable plastic cage or something. The kids had fun playing all sorts of games organized by the event crew. And, oh ya, there was also a CLOWN.

Ibu, I think it was the SAME clown you had for Ameer's birthday that day. We were not sure at first. He looked like that dude who was at your place - but you can't really tell clowns apart, can you? Anyway, one thing gave it away. Hanna was the one who spotted it. He kept on saying his tagline "I'll kiss you" to the kids. Memang SAH!!! Same dude. Hahahaha! :)

And the kids got some cool party packs and helium-filled balloons to bring home.

Hmmmmm....No evidence of economic crunch at Shangri-la today. That's for sure.

Again, sorry...No pics :( Hanna left the camera in the car boot, and we were just too lazy to go down to the basement parking to get it.

Anyway, it was a really great party. The kids enjoyed themselves tremendously!

Thank you, Dato' Fa*eh and Datin Fi** for being such gracious and wonderful hosts :)

It has been a swell weekend for us, even for Ayah. FYI, Ayah had his karaoke session with his friends on Friday night which continued until the wee hours of Saturday morning. He SMSd earlier after finishing his clinic at 10:30p.m that he was joining his primary school friends for dinner in Bangsar, and that he would be home within an hour. Yours truly waited for him, and fell asleep (thank God! If not, sure tension menunggu!). I woke up a few times from 12:30a.m until about 2:30a.m and still no sign of Ayah! It was at 3:30a.m when I woke up again and saw Ayah performing his solat in the room. Apparently he only reached home at 3:00a.m! So much for "an hour" with his friends, huh? So, it was fair and square - Ayah ALSO had his dose of fun this weekend ;)

And tomorrow will be even better. Time to be with the family to celebrate Hari Raya. At least the first half of the day, that is. The second half of the day, like the previous two years, Ayah and I will be running on our rounds to distribute daging korban, insya Allah. Syukur alhamdulillah, this year Ayah, myself and the kids again mendapat rezqi untuk korban satu bahagian masing-masing. Hope to be able to do the same for the next four years to cukupkan 7 bahagian masing-masing, insya Allah.

Before I sign off, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you -

Selamat Menyambut Hari Raya Aidil Adha.

Enjoy the time with the family, but at the same time do spend some thoughts and prayers for the less fortunate. Special thoughts and mention for the victims and those affected by the various landslides which occured in the last few days in Klang Valley.

Al-fatihah to those who had perished in the tragedy, and a special prayer for their loved ones to be strong in these very sad and difficult times. Amin.

Hi Shana,

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha to you and your family.

One thing I don't miss at all since we moved to Dhaka ialah my husband keluar sampai ke larut pagi with his friends!! :-)

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Kak Shana,

Well, black is never boring! Says the young girl who has no imagination...;)

But then again, you could have spiced it up! A little bit of leather here, and a mask there, and some stilettoes, and you could become CatWoman...

*Wink*

MAMAMIA said...

Minat Faizal Tahir ek? He does have some great songs... Tak da indecent exposure ke??

Salam Aidil Adha.

IBU said...

bella said...

jabishah said...

Hi Kak Shana,

Selamat Hari Raya to you & family too...

It's bad enough not able to view the pics but failed to read your whole post lagi tak fun. Can you pls change your playlist? It's rather too big. I could not read almost a para of your entry. Ke boleh minimize but I tak reti??? ;-)

Amy said...

Samalah...I couldn't read your entry in full due to he play list....tak reti nak drag dia ke tepi...please check kak...super please :P

wanshana said...

Udin,

Suami mana yang tak sayangkan isteri, kan? I'm sure you feel the same about Ana.

Likewise, isteri mana yang tak sayangkan suami... :)

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha to you and family, too (a bit belated though)

wanshana said...

Gina @ MTT,

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha to you and your family, too (belated!)

Lucky you - tak payah endure the heartache menunggu suami balik ke rumah subuh-subuh sepi'e. Hehehe!

Hmmm...kat Malaysia ni memang banyak sangat nightlife attractions untuk jejaka-jejaka beranak 2-3 untuk enjoy macam anak bujang. Busuk-busuk pun Kayu Nasi Kandar for a life footie on TV, kan?

In PJ ni ada new lepak spot - Jaya Three Two. Happening jugak :)

wanshana said...

Daphne,

Yup - going as a Cat Woman would have been really cool, huh? Tapi, tak sempat lah cari full-length leather boots hari tu.

Anyway, If I were to go as Cat Woman that night, takut doktor jantung sakit jantung pulak! Hahaha!

...Meow...

wanshana said...

Mamamia,

Salam Aidil Adha to you, too. Sorry for the rather belated wish.

Yup - minat Faizal Tahir, dan penyanyi-penyanyi yang sewaktu dengannya :)

(UN)FORTUNATELY, no indecent exposure that night. Hehehe!

wanshana said...

Ibuk!!!

Mahapkan kami ibuk! Kami janji enggak bikin lagik ibuk! Kami fikir ibuk sudah pulang ke Johor malam itu ngejar sapi buat korban, buk!!!

Tapi, sengaja mau bikin ibuk tidak keruan - Faizal Tahir memang PANAS malam ituk, buk!!! (Lagi panas dari Ah Boy si badut itu, buk!)

Hehehe...Jangan marah ibu, nanti kena jual :)

Okay, I'm reminding you now - post an entry on Ameer's bday do, okay?

wanshana said...

Yes, Bella...

Very Yummeeyyyhh indeed :)

I pun sket lagi nak jadi groupie malam tu, tapi sebab nak control ayu punya pasal, I amatlah bersopan santun bagai perempuan melayu terakhir malam tu...

wanshana said...

Hi Ja,

A Belated Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha to you and your family, too.

I gather from your lastest posting that you had a great Aidil Adha, huh? Can smell your sup tulang kat SD ni tau?! Sungguh mengancam jiwa raga bila tengok gambar sup tu.

So sorry about the playlist. I didn't have any problems at all reading the posting, so, I didn't know that some readers were actually having trouble reading the whole thing!

I've changed the skin, and I have also reduced the song to one. Hope you can read it now :)

wanshana said...

Amy,

So sorry about the playlist. Nasib baik you and Ja highlighted your problem reading it. I wouldn't have known.

Just for Amy and Ja, I've changed the skin of the playlist. If you still can't read it, do let me know, okay? I can just delete the whole thing from the sidebar nanti.

Take care :)

wanshana said...

Hmmmm, banyaknya typo errors this time. It has been a very long day for me today.

Anyway, Gina - it's "live" footie (not "life")

And Ja - it's "latest" posting (not "lastest")

I'm sure there are a few more errors which I may not have noticed.

Sorry, I'm only human :)
