Party Post - Part 2

I'm still thinking about the party that night. Can't get over it. I think, we pulled a good one there. I had what I wanted ~ a party, the polka dot cake, the friends, the dancing... complete! I just wish the night would never end...

Personally, I think the best thing about the party was seeing all my friends, old and new, coming together for fun and relaxation. I've been wanting to do that for a long time. It has always been in my dream to meet up with old friends like that and just dancing away like the good old days.

And I'm glad MrNordin was game for it as well. And my children too... they were pretty excited about the party and helped a lot with the preparation. Now they tell us, "My friends said ~ Wah, your parents are really cool lah!" Hee.. hee...

I think, both me & MrNordin enjoy throwing parties like this. I remember the first time we had this kind of party at home ~ it was New Year's Party 2006. I was 4 months pregnant with Nizzar at that time. It was supposed to be just brunch and karaoke for family, but it ended up until very late. People just didn't want to leave! It started at 11am and ended at 2am! There was a continuous flow of food and activities and people just chilled out. I don't know how we did it, but we did. So now every year, they expect us to do something for New Year's Eve. Hmm.. :(

Then, there was MrNordin's surprise birthday party when he turned 43. We did a 60's themed party, but not many dressed up that time because the invitees were mostly relatives. They all ada macam segan sikit... But we had fun anyway, altho' my MIL made a big fuss about me wearing a skirt that night (Mak... 60's party lah... biar lah Yati pakai skirt... kata MrNordin.)

Anyway, parties like these are fun only if the guests are game for it. So far, it has been good. Perhaps I should consider a carreer change and become a "Party Planner" instead. :)

Thanks, darling! I hope we'll have more of these kind of gatherings in the future. I think the next one to look out for is Raya Open House? Hee.. hee.. I'm just looking for an excuse to party!

SW's partner,

Too bad you had to leave so soon. But anyway, it was nice of you to step on the dance floor. Made it all worthwhile... :)

(Wait! SW's partner ni is the "Doctor" or the "Lawyer"? I presume it's the doctor...)

BJ,

I think its because its been a while since any one had attended a great party in a while.

In my case, after having kids, going out and partying was never on any agenda, and for the most part, I would just be too tired to party, if I even make it to a party ehehhehe

But I am glad most of your guests had fun and are still talking about it. Talk of the town dah tue... keep an eye out if masuk M'sian Tatler ker ehehhehe Was wondering about family and now u've answered it ehhehehe I'd think my MIL would disown my husband if she saw me dancing but then I would not invite her in the first place hehehehhe

Hugs,Aida.

Kalau the doctor, it would be SW's husband, lol.... Glad you had a good time, and life is too short to be worrying what people think. Just do it, as Nike says. :D
