It was last minute. Su, our eldest daughter and mother of the bride, oops, birthday girl called out of the blues and asked if they could celebrate Nureen's third birthday at the farm. Luckily we have good service providers who were more than ready to obliged our impromptu request, in particular the food. For this occasion they requested for roast lamp on the spit.
It was planned for about 20 adults and 20 children, but I think the final attendance exceeded that. The food was nevertheless sufficient.
It rain for a bit but did not dampen their spirits. The children (small and big) did not mind the rain and for children raised in the city, playing in the rain was a treat, a luxury not be be missed. So too, rolling on the ground. Afterall, how far can you roll in your bungalow lot compared to 3 acres. Its amazing how they could stand up straight after that. I would have vomited out my meals for the last 3 days.
|TOLD YOU, IT WAS AN ADULT PARTY|
Children today have much more in terms of quality of life but I guess the word quality is relative. I remembered their mothers playing in mud-filled ponds as a past-time in the village. And they were not children, but full grown teenagers. See how they turned out. Must be the mud.
|THE LAMB WAITING PATIENTLY|
It was supposed to be a children's party but I think it was just an excuse for the mothers and fathers to unwind. With today's lifestyle its good to get silly every now and to restore the balance to sanity.
Rave reviews for the lamp. Went very well with barbequed pineapples

|THIS THING ABOUT CHILDREN AND SAND I CAN NEVER UNDERSTAND|
Good fun. Nice to have the family and friends together, though not all the children was there. One was on the way up Mount Kinabalu and the other who just began work was busy impressing his boss. And another was biting her finger in frustration in Japan.
Ahh, the simple things in life.
Have a blessed Ramathan everyone, family and friends
