Back from the holidays

I'm baaaaaack! What a wonderful reunion we've had. I know I mentioned in my last post that I'd hope to post pictures of the reception. What I didn't mention was that my cousin was marrying someone from the royalty and that the king from one of the states was attending the do. So to adhere to the strict protocols, we weren't allowed to take photographs till after dinner time. Bummer... I really wanted to capture the bride and groom in action but right when it was open time all the cameras started flashing and people came from nowhere. What was the funniest is we think they were trying to capture the beeyoootiful princess who just married the Regent, well yes of course they wanted to see Erin and Shah too hah! Anyways, as there were too many people in the way the pics we took appeared blurry, and where the good images could be clearly seen what showed were just guests and more guests... Oh well, I'll wait for the soft copy then. Sorry guys! Have these instead.

Hungry and waiting for the arrival of the Highnesses King and Queen so we could finally eat...

After the King, Queen, Regent and Princess had left my husband managed to take these pics of the gossiping girls...

"You know this ugly stepsister actually insisted that she was prettier than you...", says the bride. "And why do you look so amused telling me that???", I was totally irked.

"No, of course I wasn't! I made sure to tell her that no one can make a man give in to her whims and wishes by a flick of her hair and a toss of her head but you and you alone!"

"Damned right I could! You'll want me body people will walk you through it!!"

I left that night feeling absolutely elated.... ;-p

I'm glad we managed to steal some time off of the entourage the next day and had a quiet dinner at a pleasant place called Passions of Kerala. If ever you guys came to Penang, you should really give the place a try. Warning though, for lovers of curry dishes or adventurous first timers only. Totally worth it.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha (Happy Eid Ul-Adha)

To my peeps, near and far, Happy Eid! It's a public holiday in Malaysia today, but many have taken long leave till Christmas, some till after the new year. I'll be around till tomorrow, then we birds will fly north to Penang. I missed my dear cousin's wedding last weekend, and her reception's due this coming Saturday there. Hopefully I'll get to post photos of the reception here.

Selamat Pengantin Baru*, Erin

Mom and dad are around for the holiday, and like I said we, the members of The School of Birds will be flying to Penang together tomorrow. While mom's here we'll be eating good food, yay!

* A greeting in Malay, wished to newlyweds.

No reason

Just felt like doing this as so many have called to ask what's happened to my blog and myself. Apart from going through something major in life, I also don't have much to tell. Anyways, this is to my peeps who've showed me I absolutely can't leave without y'all, just because... Oh, and I was totally inspired to post this, thanks to AsianCajuns Cath who put up her gorgeous pic in a lovely Ikat/Pua Kumbu dress.

"Happy Holidays!!!", my ikat fabric seems to be shouting in full spirit.

Peace to all.
