A different perspective on Emir's 7th Birthday, which was first updated by me via this link http://www.emmira.com/2013/09/emir-7th-birthday-dari-lensa-papa-emir.html
and this time, the pictures below are mostly from the official photographer Aime, he is my sister's friend. As a disclaimer, all pictures are UNEDITED :) the edited version has been printed out in the photobook.
So, the moment I decided to throw Emir's birthday party at Jungle Gym, I told Emir that he by any chance has to be part of the organizer, eventho i am able to handle this all on my own. I just want to give him a taste of being a birthday planner, ye lah, Emir kan tak de adik, so he has to experience this one step at a time.
For a start, I asked Emir to invite all of his friends based on the list that I have earlier prepared. It was not an easy job either. ikut hati nak ajak semua orang, but of cos the limitation of having a party at so call limited area, I need to somehow limit the guests and I have decided that Emir should have most of his familiar faces besides him during the party.
and so, we invited all of his classmates n tempat mengaji together with few of our closed relatives and friends. The main reason why we chose Jungle Gym Bangsar Shopping Centre as the birthday venue sebabnya..
1. Ample parking space
2. No rush to get there
3. Most of Emir's friends live nearby
4. Jungle Gym is located exactly next to the nicest public surau in Malaysia. Trust me, BSC Surau should be awarded as the best public surau in Malaysia
5. Jungle Gym offers unlimited playtime.
Above picture: The day when Emir distributed the card, was the day when the school had parents teachers meeting.
While I was terribly busy completing my amateur birthday cake for Emir, Papa on the other hand was responsible to sort out all the goodies bag. Yes, being us, everything was done at the very last minute, pagi tu baru nak tengok cukup ke tak :p
Atas adalah meja budak-budak. I decided budak-budak semua duduk satu meja, let them enjoyed the day among themselves. kang kalau mak pak duduk sebelah, dah ada gap pulak kan.
Another plus point about Jungle Gym is that, they allowed you to bring your own food. Depending on the amount of food served, adalah sikit kene bayar, but it was very minimal. On that day, I ordered the food from a good friend of mine, Suhana Zam, she just run a catering business in Kota Damansara. Nama kedai dia Ini Keluarga Sup, Alhamdulillah semua orang suka dengan makanan yang disediakan. simple but nice.
About the cake, should I elaborate more.. :p buruk buruk pun, yang penting kek tu buat sendiri. dan yang penting juga, lepas habis Emir punya birthday party, sampai la ni i tak sentuh lagi Fondant :p Macam mana nak terror kan hehe
Honestly, the cake didnt turn out as he expected, but anyway, he just forgot about it the moment when he was surrounded by his friends. Amani sebelah tu comei betuii! Macam ada rupe Emir pulak kalau sekali tengok :p
At 7 years old, he develops his interest more towards the gadget especially playing games via iPad. As a parent, I do put some restriction on game time, but maybe not as strict as other parents. So long i can see him doing his work, in between reading the books, playtime with his friends, and topmost - solat and boleh mengaji alQuran (Alhamdulillah, he is now in juzuk 13), I want to raise him as a child who could remember and enjoy his childhood.
