By the way, last weekend On Sunday, June 13th, 2010 we held a bbq beside the river with Nuha-chan’s family from Matsumoto. It has been a while since we last met about 3 months ago. Ihsan just learned how to turn himself by that time. Anyway we did the bbq at Yotagiri Park. About 20km from here. At first I though of doing it at a riverside near house. But after surveying both venues apparently the farthest one is much suitable especially that it’s designed for such activity. The park got camp site, bbq site, playground, tennis court, jogging track, and most importantly river for people enjoying the water. Nuha-chan and parents arrived at our house at about 10.30am and by the time we started bbq-ing, it was already 11.00am. The trainee living behind our house also joined us on that day. The weather on that day was quite windy and cloudy. However there were quite a bunch of people who were also bbq-ing, picnicking, jogging etc. It was forecasted that it would be raining in the afternoon. But fortunately there was no a single drop of rain until we made our way home.
I prepared some ayam percik which was a little bit different from last year’s recipe. Then I also brought some fresh corn, oranges and bread pudding besides all the drinks and bbq stuffs. While Nuha-chan’s parents brought some chicken satay with peanut sauce, chicken wings and drumsticks and yakisoba ingredients. We had fun relaxing by having a good chat over the yummy foods. At the same time we entertained the kids playing and all. Owh, we did get them into the water. We also joined them but I just got my feet dipped. Hubby was the only adult who got himself wet from the bottom down. But the water was quite cold so they both, Ihsan and Nuha-chan spent like merely 10 minutes in the water before they decided to cry and shiver hihi 😛 After that we got ourselves changed, performed the prayers, continued to finish up cooking and did some more eating before finally packing up the stuffs. We reached home at about 4.00pm and just rested. We ate some of the foods left, chit chat some more and observed the kids playing. Then by about 6.00pm Nuha-chan and parents bid good bye to us.
It was fun seeing Ihsan got play with a friend although actually they didn’t really play together. Since Nuha-chan already can run but Ihsan is still crawling and I couldn’t let him go free while in the park because he kept grabbing the grasses and putting them into his mouth, yuck! Besides, he was really keen on chasing after the black ants. Poor tiny ants tsk tsk! 🙂 Ihsan rarely got to meet other people or a friend about his age to be exact but I’m happy that he’s good with people he’s not familiar with. He never cries and can socialize good with others. While at the house, Ihsan tried to ‘talk’ with Nuha-chan with his high-pitched voice only to cause Nuha-chan to cry. Yelah Kakak Nuha pn tekejut Ihsan sgt teruja menegur dia dgr mesra sekali hihi 😀 In fact Ihsan was being too friendly that he grabbed Nuha-chan’s hair very tightly to eat! Harus la Kakak Nuha nangis. Kalau Ihsan tarik rambut Mama pn Mama dh rasa sakit. Gomen ne Nuha-chan. Hopefully Kakak Nuha xserik la dtg sini lagi. Nnt Ihsan dh bsr sket boleh la main sama2 elok2 ye Ihsan. InsyaAllah before puasa we will be visiting them in Matsumoto plak lgpun sbb nk hantar baby crib since Nuha-chan bakal dpt Adik pas raya ni 😀
All in all we had a good day. And I’m glad my baby had a blast outing too. It was his first bbq anyway. I knew he was so happy because on the next day he was being so cranky for the whole day because he wanted to go out again hihi 😛
