... and I forgot to write about it! Shessshhhh... bad! Very bad of me!!
Our wedding anniversary was 2 Sundays ago, 25th March to be exact. Started the day off with surprising B with my gifts. Yupp... he got more than one. Three in fact. With the help of Zareef and Zara, we managed to pull it off.
This year's celebration was rather low-key and low-cost but a memorable one because we get to celebrate it with Zara nevertheless. So, it was indeed a special one.
We went to KLCC. In less than 20 minutes we were there, thanks to clear roads all the way and toll-free to boot! Hehehhe... I like!!
We wanted, well actually it was I who wanted to try out Bukhara's high tea but it starts at 3 so B said why not have lunch at Haagen Daz. Lunch you say? With ice creams?? Yeah, why not... so lunch it is. For the record, we only go to Haagen Daz on special occasions, the last one being B's birthday.
Then, Zara needed a feed and a nappy change. We went to the baby's room near Tower Records. Can I just say that that place is fabulous!! Spacious, well-lit, equipped with comfy chairs and has several board games to entertain the larger than life babies. I simply loooovvveeeee it! I must say that it is the most fantastic baby room that I've ever come across since I came back to Malaysia. We spent a good hour there with me happily feeding Zara, Zareef enjoyed trying out the games there while B just sat and lazed in one of the comfy sofas. Such bliss!
A trip to KLCC will never be complete without me zipping in and out of stores. This time, I didn't do any damage to my wallet. It's more of a family outing rather than a shopping trip. Around 3.30, we made our way to Bukhara. At RM 28++ for adults and half of that for children 5 years old and above, it was well worth it. I loved the relaxed and laid back atmosphere that the place has. Choices of food although limited, were more than enough to satisfy my cravings for Middle Eastern food. Not all are from Middle East though. They also have fish fingers, ais kacang, sandwiches, fish balls (I'm rolling my eyes here!), fried mee hoon and a selection of desserts which thankfully included baklava. Okay, doesn't sound very Middle Eastern now, does it?! I was rather disappointed with the choice of food so I made sure that I stuffed myself crazy with the exotic ones. I think I'll give Al-Marjan a try next time and make a comparison.
Around 5ish, we headed home but not before I got B a birthday card. I had to run away from him for awhile and make a quick dash into one of the book stores.
We exchanged cards the next day. Me him and him me.
Zareef saw me writing the card and insist that he had a go too. I let him doodle away. I was pleasantly surprised to see him write his daddy's name complete with the title on the card. Anyway, when B saw my card, he said "Eh Aling, I think you gave me the same card last year la". I was going... WHAT?? "Ye ke... tak la. I would know if it was the same one". "Hmmm... tak pe la. Tomorrow I bawak balik from office, kay".
Come tomorrow, B showed me last year's anniversary card. Well, well, well... whaddaya know...
It's exactly the SAME! Aiyooohhh!! How could I have forgotten which card I bought for him. I'm really kicking myself for it. I thought Hallmark is supposed to get rid of last year's stock and replace them with new designs but NOOO... they still have it in stock and plentiful to boot. So, I'm putting up the two cards here so that when next year comes, I'll know which card to avoid.
Well, cards aside, we had a great time just the four of us. To my husband, B, I'm so sorry for the card incident. I totally forgot what I bought for you last year. I love you darling and I pray to Allah that our marriage will last till death do us part. InsyaAllah...
