Hamsters...

Somehow, my husband who does not believe in having pets relented into letting my girls have a pair of pet hamsters. This is some pics taken on my DSLR of Britney Lora (long name I know... but my baby tends to go overboard at times..) the hamster, belonging to my youngest daughter Anne... I wanted to post more pics but the file was too big... I might post pics of Danish the hamster tomorrow or another day.... Danish belongs to my eldest daughter Talia...

Of family ties , envy and loneliness

Last night , my husband and me and our three girls and my husband's son attended my husband's uncle's 80th birthday. It was held at Rebung in Bangsar, the restaurant that was owned by Chef Ismail and the first Malaysian astronaut . And so many family members and relatives and some very, very close friends of our uncle attended.
The food was scrumptious, the decoration was breathtakingly beautiful , and the crowd... amazing. About 100 people attended. The function was beautifully.planned by our cousins, his four children and gave us an insight to their lives as a family.
