NS/PLKN 10 years friendship and bachelorette celebration!!

Um, Its shocking and sad yet exhilarating to know that i was once in National Service (NS) and Program Latihan Khidmat Negara (PLKN) . Um, Its been 10YEARS since that 3months came and gone. Some of the friends that i made there i thought would last a life time, however, some contacts were lost along the years . But i am very happy to have know and kept these crazzzy bunch of people thought out the years !! Izzah and i actually went wwwwaaaaayyyyyy back!! hahaha , We knew each other since standard 1 and Firdaus 'Dos' and Atiqah 'Iqa' and us have all met during our NS training. 

Every year we would somehow meet up for lunch , dinner and have a session of karaoke here and there . Since our dearest Iqa was getting married soon, we all decided to have another meetup. What was suppose to be our regular meetup soon turned to be a bachelorette party!! However, since everyone was kinda in a saving mood, i suggested a budget meetup. But the extravagance of the meetup could not have been what it had been if not for the awesome Dos !!!
Izzah, with her ballons that made the party colourful..!!!!
Me being fun and funny with the balloons ...!!! Kinda felt like the cartoon UP.. =)

What a party without cakes or since there was only 4 of us we opp for cupcakes. I even had a cute cake topper for the bride to be ..!!! hehehe ... that says 
"Let the fun begin!!"
SInce the meetup was what was planned , the bride to be was lurred with a pretax that it was like any normal meetup that we had. With the help of the gang we book a karaoke place for 4hours, izza and me ran around and got pizza's, cupcakes, balloons, and even went to Ikea in a mad dash run and got some last minute gives that i had instore for all of them . 

Izza and I arrived first and started putting everything together !! hehehe WHile we were doing that Dos was distracting my bride to be and soon brought her over to the karaoke room that we booked. boy was she surprised!!! hahaha ... But as soon as she came in everyone was excited and happy with everything from the food, decorations and i just the "LOVE"  that filled the room..=). Since everyone was famished, we all attacked and i mean litereally.. ATTACKED the pizza and chicken wings !!
hehehe After we surprised Iqa and we took a picture for our memories for years to come!!
While we ate, laugh , and toasted ourselves with ice lemon tea and sparkling grape juice, we were taking turns singing out lovable songs..=).. We even went down memory lane with songs from back in the days . And out awesome Dos even serenaded us ladies with a perfect rendition of Anuar Zain songs that made us all squealed..!! hahaha Mayb squealing was a bit much but we were all into his rendition!!As always everytime we meet up its awesome, but this took the cake !!
Lolz, while Dos serenaded us with his rendition, the Bride-to-be serenaded
her favourite male  malaysian performer .. hahaha .. Luv you babe !!
In between singing, eating and just enjoying ourselves we would all take pictures with each other ..=).. Um, just to see how far all of us have come is just awesome!!
Since i won my polaroid Instax camera at FFS christmas dinner last year, i have been loving it soo much that i share my happiness with people around me with a picture of them and some memorable frame/message board. Some of my friends appreciate these small efforts that i make and some just think its a cheap gift. Either way its a gift from my heart and since i mainly see these people about a few times a year, what better way to make the 10th year a memorable one, ... With a message board frame for each one of them and a special one for the bride to be form ALL of us !!Since, polaroid are taken instantly, my frames was also made on the spot !! and i love everyone's reactions to it !! I appreciated it even more that they truly were loving the idea and gift.. God bless u guys!!
The one that i didnt had time to snapped was Izza's frame that i made ,, huhuhuh.. Lolz
All of us happy that we have known each other 10 years.. By this time because of the
Bride to be all of us had tears in our eyes !!! huhuuh
Of course, when i plann anything in my life ... No one goes home empty handed. So each one if us all went home with a "1" and "0" butter cookies that of us meant to say we're celebrating out 10th year anniversary friendship and a fortune cookie to tell our fortune for the year to come.. hehehe .. But i dont remember what all of us  cookies saying even mine.. Oopsy !! but im thinking of trying to make my own cookies !! Well i'll try soon enough !! 
Funny enough the bride to be sent her wedding invitation about a week plus before the meet up however , i received mine on the day of the meetup itself ...
It may have been a coincidence... lols, but always i love everyone of u .. and i Truly cant wait for out next meetup .. Who knows a walk down memopry lane at the place we all first met in Peladang Agro Setiu Resort perhaps ?? Lolz.. We'll see ... Bless everyone !! cheers !!

Gary and G-ja Family Day at Bagan lalang!!

Ever since Gary and G-Jar "GG" planning for the arrival of their prince , i was sooo excited !!! First time someone close , and i mean like "close" to me is expecting a baby... hehehe I was like yeah !!! Finally can play and babysit him. So when baby Ariean Indra Putra " Ean" was born , i was ecstatic!!! From then one every time we meet up i surely nak hold and cuddle with him.. hahaa .. 

One find weekend, GG invited me and hubs for the weekend away, just saying that they booked a apartment and we just lepak tepi laut . Only a day before or a few hours before only we were informed that it was actually a family day/gathering of G-jar's family. Hahaha ... Truthfully malu gak nak join but since both GG said its ok, we just ikut jer la. At least i can babysit Ean while , GG have time for their family gathering .. hehehe .

Bagan Lalang from our house only takes about 45min-1hour drive. The moment i hop onto GG's car i quickly wanna hold baby Ean.. and He slept the whole way through.. hehehe . When we reached the apartment, GG needed to go down to the beach camp-site where the gathering was being held to set up a few stuff. So hubs and me volunteered to babysit Ean. But the moment GG went out to the beach side and left us alone with the baby, hubs went to sleep. Hahaha, so much for "US" taking care of the baby.. lolz, end up "Im" the one taking care, feeding and putting the baby to sleep. 
After babysitting baby E'an for a few hours , we joined the others later on in the evening. They were all setting up the barbeque pit and the grill stations. It took us all hard work to get the fire started . So, we were all excited when we got it going. Thanks to GG's friends/family that is a frequent camper, as they knew what to do and how to do it . While some was getting the fire started, me being a camera hogger. I went around to snap pictures of everyone here and there . The most tak malu thing was most of them, i dont even know and have never met . But alhamdulillah, GG's family and friends are all very friendly and made me and hubs felt at ease with everyone . 
What was on the menu u say ?? There were cockles, stingrays, prawns, chicken, sausages and even grilled corn. Since the getaway was sprung on me and hubs at the last minute we felt bad that we didn't bring anything. But thank god everyone was nice enough to share ...=).. Next time Hubs and me promise to bring our share of the food stuffs. But since we didn't bring anything, hubs volunteered to help in the preparations of the seafood's. 
Hehehe, too many chefs spoils the dish heheheh, so while hubs help G-Jar's sister with the prep of the seafood's . hehehe ,  G-Jar, Me and Gary busy helping on other preps and also disturbing baby E'an. 
While hubs and G-Jar's sister preping the seafood's  G-Jar's Friends and other family members started the fire and made sure to keep it going. But since ppl were getting hungry they grilled the cockles and corn first since it was the easiest and fastest to cook. 
 While cockles , corn and some other seafood are just started being grilled. I 'kidnapped' baby Ean and took some time enjoying the sea breeze and even took photos of US by the beach area. hahaa , um .. Being around baby Ean sometimes does make me wonder how me and hubs will be when we have kids of our own. hehehe , For now , because of financial matters , we can just pinjam baby Ean and keep on wondering until we have one of our own.. hehehe .. 
hehehe .. a moment with the adorable baby Ean..!! Um.. Mama  D and Uncle Tito loves u baby boy !!!
Gary , G-Jar and Baby Ean ... A very lovely family ..!!! <3 you guys!!
hehehe... a dusk moment with baby Ean..!!
While, we were buys taking loads of pictures. The others have started grilling the prawns, stingrays, chicken and potatoes.. SInce we came a bit later then others, while they all went to freshen up and taking baths. GG, me and hubs took over the grilling stations...=). By the time they came back we all devoured the food , hahah , because we were by the beach and i took loads of random pictures my battery ran low and that i didnt take any night pictures and of everyone devouring the food .. hahaa .. But honestly kudos to the chefs and marinator's ( GG friends and families)... the food was awesome delicious !!! The more hubs and me ate, we felt bad for not bringing anything, and we promise our selves next time we will make sure to bring some supplies and food stuff too..=).
After dinner , we all just laze around the fire and just hang out with GG's family and friends. And nearing 11plus i think , we all headed back to the apartment/hotel that GG booked for the night. Since , we went prepared for anything. We didnt know that everyone else was camping out for the night. That would be interesting though. But lolz, my husband being a "POLAR BEAR" hahaha , he cant stand the heat much, i dont think he will enjoy it much.. Lolz, We said our goodnights and retired to the hotel to sleep. The day had been awesome that it didnt take long for us to fall into a deep sleep..=).

The Next morning, GG woke up very early and met the family and friends at the beach. Since it was sooo hard for me and hubs to get a holiday, we kinda slept in a bit ... =). After breakfast, we drove to the beach side where they camped and they were all playing monopoly deal. But i was mainly distracted by the giant eagle kite that GG's brother in law bought.. It was cool... At the beach i even saw a pirate ship kite that was soo cool, especially the way it glided in the air !!!

G-Jar's dad was so cool, he spoilt the kids with bubble guns, mini kites and a whole load of toys ..=). 
Soon, it was afternoon and everyone started to packed. hehehe , it was such a fun and awesome weekend. That truthfully i didnt want it to end . But it being a weekend we had to work the next day , it was a bum to end it .. But hubs and me got to meet awesome friends and family of Gary and G-Jar...=). And the most that i liked was being able to hug, hold and kiss baby Ean all my heart desired ,, hehehe .. lolz.

Till our next outing Gary and G-Jar ..!!
heeheheh, one of these days i SERIOUSLY nak pinjam baby Ean  for the weekend.!!
Heheheh .. Muahss,

Cheers everyone!!!
