awesome sungguh! bunting made by aunty rahi!
because tokmak turned 80 this year, my mom and her siblings planned a party for her at our house. it was themed Pink and Bling because tokmak being tokmak, loves pink and she's always wear her blings out. her biggest blings have always been her brooches. cute sangat!
part of the decor =)
this cake looked so good and cool that we all just cant wait to slice it open and nomnom like crazy!
cake made by Homemade From Scratch Bakery!
and memang.. the cake was delicious!!!!!
special bubble effects by the lil' cousins
comel la korang ni tau takkk!??!
pulut pun made by aunty rahi too! coolness!!
it was a real fun celebration that day =)
my aunt from UK made a special appearance and surprised everyone! she arrived 2 days before the party, and tak bagitau sape2 pun! amboi aunty.. boleh jadi spy betul. haha!!
mama had this uncle to come and play music the whole time too.
bila uncle tu main lagu "pakai baju kancing la suasa" terus tokmak, my aunties and my uncles start dancing!!
comel sangat diorang!
even my tokwan!! abah and ayahcho kena la dance with her! hehehe! =p
tokwan dah la sakit kaki, but she forced herself up and started moving around dancing with the rest!
she told all of us before, about how she used to dance with arwah tok. and seeing her dance, even if it was just jiggling from side to side, we were just so happy and touched by her efforts. comel je tokwan ni =')
and then the men took over the floor. hahahha!
oh and while the grown ups dancing and lepaking downstairs, the young ones kat atas main main.
main main dengan our treadmill. hahahaha!
so anyway, macam macam ada masa the celebration.
tokmak was touched and during her speech, we all got teary, and then the siblings lak bagi speech to tokmak, and again we got teary. not forgetting aunty nilo's suprice appearance that made everyone happy and amazed (coz she pulled it off successfully!!). and and... AH BANYAK LA!!
it was just special!!
hari tu i posted a pic of tokmak on instagram. ramai la pulak tanya camane she looked so young!
i asked her for her secret, and she said:
tokmak: eh, apa secret secret? aku buat macam bese jeee. semayang jangan tinggal, baca Quran, baca selawat banyak banyak kali, ha tu je la!!
mars: makan minum? pantang ke apa ke?
tokmak: makan je apa ko naak. bia sihat.
mars: takkan tu je?
tokmak: ish. ko be happy je. don' worry, be happy. haaa. kalo orang buat sakit ke apa, bio je. be happy je. jangan senang amek ati tau. tak suka, tengok benda lain. kalo tak tenang, selawat je. banyak ingat Allah.
ha tu dia. her secrets!
solat, read Quran, selawat banyak banyak, and don't worry, be happy! seems simple enough innit?
i think with all the ibadah she has been practicing, they've done good to her mental health. as for her physical health, we know it's because she busy herself with activities with her friends. she goes around with her hadrah group in muo, so she's not bored nor unfit.
and i think it's genetics too. ihik!
my parents pun 54 years old this year. alhamdulillah they're in good health, physically and mentally!
so as a conclusion, jaga lah diri, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually so that in sha Allah we'll be able to live long enough to bring benefit to others too. in sha Allah =)
