A marvellous day to celebrate

Miss 8 is no longer 8 today!

She is officially 9 years old Smile.

Happy birthday darling daughter..

From a wee baby

163

to a definitely-not-so-wee anymore kid, hehehe.

So, what did we do today to celebrate her birthday?

Well, obviously it started with her opening all her pressies.

This year, she received toys sahaja, hahahaha…

Some of the toys are definitely toys meant for boys but she asked for them and she loves them Smile.

The Other Half kata, “Ahhh, the son I’ve always wanted…

Muahahahaha….

And then I made lemonade scones for breakfast.

Sesiapa yang tak pernah cuba lemonade scones, silalah cuba because they are so yummy! Still gebu sampai ke petang without that ‘bitter’ bicarb after taste which you normally get with scones.

Lepas breakfast, we went to Hillarys for a whale watching tour.

Sekarang from Spetember to December, along the WA coast, the whales are having their seasonal migration from Antartica up to somewhere north of Broome.

So, memang sangat2 sesuai lah kalau nak tengok whales.

Dalam hati, doa banyak2 agar dapatlah jumpa some whales instead of nampak air laut aje, hehehe.

While waiting for the boat.

She’s sitting a bit high up so senang nak nampak the whales.

Orang berdua ni surenya tgh gossiping about me, hehehe.

I was asking Miss 13 to pose with the ‘duckface’ tapi we all berdua tak tau mcm mana nak pose gaya duck face tu, Smile.

And Alhamdulillah, memang rezeki the birthday girl, we saw quite a few humpback whales.

Not the biggest though, but enough to make us happy we’ve seen them in real life and ‘up close’.

Boats are not allowed to be closer than 50m from the whale and I pulak takde papparazi’s lenses so tu yang my photos semua jauh2 aje.

But the boat crew said that the whales weren’t active so we didn’t see them make jumps or any acrobatic acts like you see in National Geographic shows, hehehe.

But we did see them breached and also their flukes.

So happy when we could see the flukes.

Masa ni lah berangan2, alangkah best nya kalau ada boat sendiri, maulah every weekend we all pergi menjejak whales, hikhikhikhik…

Then balik rumah dah lewat, terus lah prepare stuff for dinner and also the birthday cake.

This is her ‘first’ birthday cake this year.

(Kalau she’s having a birthday party, there’ll be another cake I guess).

Maltesers cake.

Just a simple butter cake with buttercream ganache like icing with choc biscuit fingers and maltesers for deco.

It’s just a small 6” cake sebab yang nak makan nya pun we all aje kan, hehehe.

But sebab semua dah kenyang makan dinner tadi and minum bubble tea for afternoon tea, terus postpone potong kek to esok aje.

Mana tak kenyang nya, we had nasi goreng and sate with kuah kacang mahal for dinner.

Memang sedap lah meratah sate tadi Smile.

Assalamualaikum Aunties,
thank you so much for the birthday wishes and prayers for me. I do feel like a big girl now and my Mum says to start acting like a 9 year old as well.
the maltesers cake was very yummy but my Mum will only let me have a small slice each time.

Lots of love,
Miss 9
