What a gorgeous day today. It’s 2 days before the official Winter season starts but it was really warm today. That’s Perth for you! Our winter pun never gets that cold anyway, paling sejuk it got to was –0.6C in 2006 which was such a big news sebab memang tak pernah2 sampai subzero temperature kan, hehehe. I think it got up to 24C tengah hari tadi which was just nice enough for a picnic at the playground. Biasalah kan kat Perth ni, bila nice weather aje during the weekend, mesti lah pergi playground sambil berpicnic :-). I guess it’s everyone’s favourite past time here (especially people like us yang dah beranak pinak ni :-)). You all pun sure agaknya dah jemu tengok we all ni asik2 pergi playground, asik2 pergi picnic, hehehe. Memang takde social life lain lah kan ;-).
So, hari ni nya entry sudah semestinya about picnic and playground lah kan. Sheri’s Hero turned 3 yesterday so The Other Half suggested why don’t we all go to the Applecross playground for a potluck picnic, the kiddies will definitely enjoy the playground and the biggies will definitely enjoy the food :-). I pun when people mention potluck and picnic, terus lah angguk aje especially if the picnic is among friends kan. But I guess it counts as a surprise birthday party because she didn’t know that we were bringing along a cake for the birthday boy as well :-).
The Other Half was so happy today cos he got to play with ‘HIS’ toy aka my Mother’s Day present aka the DSLR camera, hehehe. I cuma dapat main2 dengan our old digital camera aje since I masih belum khatam2 lagi the DSLR manual tu! Punyalah lambat nya nak khatam, tak tau lah bila ;-). So, layan aje lah ye the photos from today.
The food spread at the picnic today, pizza and garlic bread (I buat), marinated baked lamb (Hafiz buat) and the yummiest otak2 (bought by Salina :-)). Dah lama sangat I tak makan otak2 ni and tadi memang lah The Other Half and I melantak betul2 :-). The biggies makan sampai kenyang habis but the kiddies makan sikit aje because they were so busy playing, more food for the biggies, hehehe…..
The biggies yang tak sabar2 nak makan :-).
Hafiz, only a true macho man/boy can wear a pink floral hat so gorgeously, hehehe….
Ingat nak buat the walk ala2 The Beatles tapi most of the people in the photos were too young to know who The Beatles were, hehehe….
It was a jaffa cake, orange cake covered with choc ganache. I liked it (but tak tau lah what others thought of it especially what the birthday boy thought of it ;-)). Probably he was so terharu tengok nama dia on the cake, hehehe….
The Other Half testing the DSLR timer on a tripod :-).
Thank you Sheri n family and Salina n hubby, we had a fabulously great time at the picnic!
