Penang – wedding and meeting up sessions

Lilypie 2nd Birthday Ticker

We were all up in Penang last weekend for Peh Deh’s (Papa’s brother) wedding. Ah Mai (Papa’s sister) and Uncle Jason (her husband) flew back from LA for the wedding and we drove up to Penang together.

Grandma and Grandpa were also invited to the wedding and they had to bring along Ro Wyn and Jo Tien (my cousins) as Ai Yee (mummy’s sister) was away that weekend. So we all had fun at the hotel we stayed at. Well mostly as we didn’t get the chance to swim at all…what happened was on the first day we were there, we wanted to go swimming but the weather didn’t permit. We were all geared up and went to the pool but the wind was so strong and it also looked like it was going to rain that we decided to go back to our room and play in the bathtub instead. Then Kai Ru (papa’s friend’s, Aunty Jo’s son) joined us as well so there were 4 for us in the tub playing. And the weather the next few days didn’t permit us to swim either.

The 4 of us stucked in the bathtub (it's a jacuzzi but the water level will be over my head for it to work)

The next day was a hectic one as it was the wedding day…we went to pick the bride up during the day and had all the celebrations and by the time we know it, we only had a couple of hours to get ready for the dinner. I was really moody that day, probably coz I wasn’t feeling too well already as I had a runny nose.

Just before the dinner, there were some more photo-taking sessions at the restaurant and I was being a busybody and followed the bride around. But during dinner, I was so clingy and refused to acknowledge anyone who wants to play or carry me…only to mummy, papa, jo tien, ro wyn and kakak. But I was mostly glued to mummy that night.
p.s. i'm having problems with the below fonts....stay tuned, will try and update/correct them later

The next day, Grandpa and Grandma left with my cousins and kakak to KL. I was not happy when they left but I couldn’t follow them since we’re staying another night there.

The highlight of this trip was that I got to finally meet my blogging buddy, Lucas. We only met up for a while but it was good enough for our mummies to catch up while attending to us sitting on the baby chairs. Mummy was admiring the way Lucas drinks his water (a whole lot more than I do) and also the number of teeth he has (whenever he opens his mouth, especially when he smiles, you can see a whole lot of pearly whites!). We (Lucas and I) made a huge mess on the floor; Lucas was dumping some of his food onto the floor while I was tearing and throwing serviettes onto the floor. Actually, we were bored while our mummies chatted away (like long lost pals) so we had to entertain ourselves. Lucas’ mummy was so nice to clear the mess we made when it was time to leave. We said our goodbyes and I can’t believe our mummies made us kiss each other goodbye! I guess coz it will be awhile before we ever meet again…anyway, Lucas’ mummy did a good dialogue on our pictures and you can view it here.

see what nice set of teeth Lucas has

We left for KL the next day, leaving Ah Mai and Uncle Jason behind at Kong Kong’s place. They all were off to a short holiday before they came back to KL. Ah Mai and Uncle Jason have left to LA – I will see them again (hopefully) in October there.

bye Uncle Jason, guess I wasn't so scared of you after all!
