haze is back

almost every year we get it around the same time...last year it was during ellisa's fullmoon...that was in august ...it really put us in a limbo as we were considering to postpone the party or move it to a hotel...finally we stuck to our decision to have it at home, as the caterers were booked in advanced...prayed real hard....and as suddenly as it came...it went away on ellisa's fullmoon...so we had a wonderful party in the garden with lots of yummy food...even had a yummy roast lamb.

no wonder read so many blogs of unwell mommies & babies....today is real teruk case...all grey and "foggy" except instead of cold - its hot, stuffy and smoky! to my surprise a fren in jakarta does not suffer the same fate...life is not fair.

had a great weekend...spent friday nite at yeh yeh's...celebrate mid-autumn festival ~ forgot to bring camera so didn't capture the lanterns, mooncakes, tiny yams, kacang, fruits and tea. since it's a tradition, the whole family still sat in yeh yeh's garden...with the haze...to play paper lanterns...burned a few...the children like to see the lantern go up in a blaze and of course played with candles, sparkles and pop-pop...unfortunately...the pop has fizzle out as these were left-overs from chinese new year!

saturday we had a mini-hols in le meridien...took erika to stay a nite (solly ellisa had to leave you with po po) the room was small but had a good view of lake gardens....all clear sky today...haze blew away...we had a good time in the pool...their pool is very biiiigggg, very nice...cannot say the same about the bed....daddy is like the "princess and the pea"...we think the hotel is owned by lebanese...the interior deco & food relects the middle eastern touch...which i don't know how to appreciate loh.

sunday...haze back in force! went to church...go home...watch F1...daddy was dissapointed with the results...he don't like the renault driver...but i think he finished 1st!...siesta time - need to recover from the mini-hols...then had sate for dinner...snooze till morning! we are very horizontally-inclined people.
