GLC Nov @ Coffee and Spice

November meetup took place at Coffee & Spice at KLCC. The place was formerly run by Delifrance. Basically i noticed a lot of new shops open in KLCC! I was surprised to see banyak pulak lagik space2 yang before nih tak penah wujud. I was the last one to arrive because i can only go out after 6pm itu pon mencicit lari takot tetiba ada kejer datang and driving from Bangsar South took 40mins termasuk jam. So not bad lah jugak tuh ;)

My food and drink sampai lambat because the waiter forgot to place my order ghhrrr. Sib baik tgh busy borak so takdelah rasa lama giler tunggu sambil telan ABC D punye (kelakar tak kelakar tak hehe). I had nasik lemak bungkus and white coffee btw. I wonder why there's a huge price difference between nasi lemak bungkus yang ada rendang ayam (RM4.80) dengan nasik lemak ayam rendang on the plate (RM9+). Of course i opt the cheaper nasi lemak besides makan alas daun pisang lagik sedap. The white coffee was nice and thick! Nyummm!

Kak Fara tolong belikan cupcakes @ Bisou to celebrate Shara's birthday which fall on 19 Nov. Coincidentally that day 25 Nov was actually Mas's birthday. Sad that we can't celebrate with her as she's still in Hospital Temerloh recovering from the motorbike accident.

Happy belated birthday Shara!

Even though i forgot to bring the GLC book because i thought plan tak jadik, i suggested everyone to write on piece of paper first. Later i tampal dalam buku huhuh. Gigih la macik bawak kertas, pen and scissors! It was fun to see everyone spent sometime to put their thoughts into the paper. Kak Fara tulis berjela2....dah macam batu bersurat occay hahaha! Kak Moji plak start lambat sbb dok tgk orang punyer nak carik idea tulis aper. D plak tulis simple giler sbb tak sempat nak google and research dolu. While Shara tulis point form about everyone siap time stamp lagik.

After dinner we headed to a couple of new stores near Uniqlo. One of the reason i wanted to go to KLCC because nak check out Candylicious, Garret popcorn and Isetan food market. But since terborak lebeh we didn't have much time left and everyone have to rush back. So it was a brisk ooohh aaaah walkthrough at candylicious.

Candylicious @ KLCC

Heavy Hershey's syrup? Not.

Playdate with Ali

Subsequent entry from Bubs Art Attack. After the coloring session, Qeeb and Ali explored other things together (in their own world).

Kutip bola....baling bola

Outside main buaian and slide pulak. Qeeb's expression macam kene paksa duduk situ :P But yeah literally we 'forced' him to sit on the swing.

The Birthday Boy Who Turns 1yo

I've posted many pics of peeps and birthday stuff, so i made this one special entry for Qeeb only. Qeeb's birthday falls on Sunday so it was perfect to celebrate on the birth date itself. The not so great part was his mood. He was overwhelmed with all the attention that he decided he didn't want to socialize....at all. On the bright side he did not smashed his own birthday cake in spite of the resistance. And guess who blew the candle? The parents obviously hehe.

I'm not sure how we suddenly came to another round of birthday song. But i was hoping Qeeb dah warm up  by this time and look at the cake with glee.

Tettttt it's the other way round. Qeeb ended up bursting into tears egegege. One of Qeeb's trait is he do not like loud sound including gelak kuat2. Jiwa sentimental oh budak nie wpon muka serious....kenot talk or laugh too loud in front of him.

Qeeb's 1st Birthday Party

I had one or two proper potrait photos with Qeeb. Not much because nak posing at that time seems so time consuming.

When all the guests dah balik, we wind down and chilled with Qeeb. With a little help, Qeeb unwrapped the presents by himself. Sangat seriously excited dapat hadiah sampai tatau mana satu nak main dolu. Hehe thanks everyone yang bagi hadiah in any form :)

Btw, I have a confession...i did something silly on Qeeb's birthday. It even started the night before where i observed Qeeb's behaviour looking for similarity or clue before he popped out one year ago. When me and Cheep watched Desperate Housewives last year frm midnight till Suboh, Qeeb wasn't really active dalam perot. This year he was asleep through the night. Around 12pm last year Qeeb was busy wiggled his way out to see the world, but this year he took a nap from 12pm till 2pm! So kesimpulannyer, mana de orang buat benda yang sama pada time yang sama the year before. Haih silly me! Unless it's a movie...a dejavu movie.

Qeeb's Yellow & Blue Birthday Theme

We survived the preparation for Qeeb's 1st birthday party *hurray*. It was a big deal for me because it was my first time to organize a theme birthday party. Lemme share the preparation part because biler tingat balik mmg kelako sbb duduk sampai kebas2, tangan melecet2 asik menggunting. And the day before I have to be in the office for group discussion until 6pm...of all days! Only few hours left to run around to get some staff. But it was all worth it! Let the madness of DIY-ing begin.

1. Theme
Cheep chose car theme so he designed this and i got it printed. Sangat kiut and i love the car design because i can do macam2 with it!

Qeeb's Invitation
Design service RM60 front and back  by bem69

2. Location
The party buat kat rumah jer considering the fact Qeeb boleh tido and bangun sukati. Kalo buat kat tempat lain susah nak kene ikot his nap time. Besides kalo nak decorate kene pegi that place in advance ulang alik. Im not sure about cost though maybe next time can check out place like mcD, A&W, KFC. I wanted to utilize the outdoor area but a risk jugak lah because it's a rainy season. Alhamdulillah hujan stop right before we start the party and hujan again heavily when everybody dah balik. 

3. Decor
It was tough to refrained myself from buying all the things in the market yang i can match here and there. But biler pikir balik mana nak letak mendalah tuh sumer after party? soo terpaksa lupakan saja. I decided to make use of the garden so I made this :) I used marker pen and draw beso2 the words, thicken the outline, potong sket ikot shape and siappp. Then i need a place to tampal this thing, maka garden fence FIL jadik mangsa. Abes inovatip dah rasa hahaha. I actually visualize more balloons...helium balloons ekceli so it can stand but heck...nak singgah pegi beli belon pon tak sempat. Sempatlah gantung dua belon cipot itu to add some colors.

All the balloons were tiup by Cheep the night before...in the bathroom. Bilik lak fully occupied by me yg tgh prepare the goodies bag. Coincidentally the whole day takde air so the bathroom totally kering and make it the best place to gather balloons in the bath tub :P Gilos pump belon sampai kol 3 pagi. 



4. Props for Photobooth
Found this template kat tenet and printed it out. Gunting2 ikot shape and i used chopstick as handle. Why? Because it's cheap, sturdy and safer than batang sate yang tajam. Eventhough the size is short but it serves the purpose.

5. All the Small Small Things
Custom mineral water label. Buang the original label and replaced with Qeeb's own tag.

I also cut the car shape for topper. Just wanted to make use all the tags because we still got tons of it!

Lollipop bouquet arranged by my sis. Mmmg buat meja nampak colorful! If you're interested just pm me and i can refer you to my sis. The price is depends on type of lollies plus kos upah sket :)

6. Goodies Bag
So happy managed to jumpe this bag yang ikot color theme. I put one snacks, bubbles, coloring sheet and crayon. Then the guests can collect lollies from the candy buffet table and put inside the bag. I prepared this with only night lamp on because i dowan to disturb Qeeb's beautiful sleep *roll eyes*. Kang dia terbangun takleh buat kejer. Memang agak kegelapannn lah buat kejer time tuh.

7. Food
Since i don't know how to cook let alone nak masak banyak2 tok guests so we have to opt for caterer. Kalo terel masak mmg jimat lah. On the day itself, the caterer sampai lambat! Omg, at first i tried to relax because baru habes hujan. But when the guest started to arrive and the caterer tak nampak2 lagik i started to panic and called uncle yang i liaised with. The staff  arrived almost 30mins later when i was just about to come out with mitigation plan to call Dominos Pizza. I ordered minom petang punyer food like mihun goreng, roti jala, fried chicken, sosej and kuih2. My MIL also tolong tambah pasta.

8. Birthday Cake
One of the most important thing in birthday party - Birthday Cake for birthday boy of course! This one ordered from my SIL's mader in law, aunty Merlin. I just mentioned it's a car-theme birthday and she baked this! Wowww surprisingly it matched with the color yang Cheep designed on the card. And this car ada black rim...how cool is that!

Qeeb's 1st Birthday Party

Thanks to hubby Cheep yang melayan kerenah wifey mintak itu ini, pump and gantung belon sampai hilang few kilos, menampal props bagai eventhough he don't understand why i wanna do it in the first place. Yang penting layaaaaan and support jer :) Glad Qeeb got his 1st birthday run smoothly.

p/s: Some of the photos were taken by Azhar Poji. Timer kasehhhh!
