Birthday Bash and Then There Goes The Teeth!

February 7, 2010

As I mentioned before, Fatini just turned 5. Yesterday, we had a small gathering with friends, for makan-makan (aktiviti biasa la Malaysian kat sini).

I cooked, and that's a must! I am not an excellent cook, but everybody expects to have good food when they come. So I made Nasi Ayam (my own recipe), kuih bakar and popiah basah. Not much, but I was hoping that they'll enjoy it. That's the reason, why I've been away, for quite sometimes. I really want to blog, but the commitment to cooking and, tarts orders kept me away from my laptop.

The day came and I started in the morning and got everything ready by the time our 1st guest and baker, Fida arrived. She brought a lovely cake for Tini, not only lovely, but taste so GOOD!

I put Tini in her red cheong-sam from last year's Chinese New Year (yes, we do attend the celebration by TAK). She so adorable with her newly cut hair. 
Guests arriving, and I started to worry about whether the food is enough for them? But everything turned out, just fine! Alhamdulillah, the word, "Sedap!" that came out from their full mouth, made me smiled.
I am glad that most of invited guests excepted the invitation and came. So there it goes, makan-makan, borak-borak, and makan-makan some more!
The kids, they had great time too! Running around, climb up and down the stairs, eat more cupcakes, and running again. And I enjoyed seeing them enjoying themselves.
The party lasted until 9pm, with the guests from RAK and Sharjah is the last one to went home. Let's not forget Fida and familly. Thank you so much you guys.  And  for those lovely presents you guys brought for Tini, she is so happy!



Wait, the story doesn't end here.

this is before I pulled the teeth. There you can see the new teeth already came out at the back, causing the baby teeth to loose all by it self.

Because it's a her birthday party, I waited until the next day. Well, it is time for her to face that one of her baby teeth have to be pulled out. I explain to her, that she already got the grown up teeth coming out from the same place where the baby teeth is. If she doesn't get it pulled out, she'll have a crooked teeth. And she was crying, saying that she wants a pretty teeth. And she was crying, saying that she doesn't want me to touch her teeth, only the DENTIST can touch it!

The problem with dentist, it's expensive here! Even you're covered with the insurance, you still have to pay hundreds of dirham for the service. The privilege of being covered are, you just need to pay 50 dirham for the service charge and less 20 - 25% of the original teeth service, whatever it is.

Because the teeth is loose , I planned to pull it myself as my dear husband doesn't have the GUTS to pull it out! Huh! (*&^%%&*%$#@)

lepas cabut gigi, kesian sayang ummi!
There it goes!

that's her teeth, put under her pillow for the tooth fairy.

Dah ok dah, tak nangis lagi.

So that afternoon after the party day, I told her to lay down on the sofa. I prepared a bunch of folded sterilized cottons. Using only sanitized rubber gloves and tissue to pull the teeth, I managed to pull the loose teeth after a few pulls. There goes her cute tiny baby teeth. She was crying, and crying. I know, it's painful. So I hug her and told her to bite the cotton to put some pressure on the bleeding gum. I told her to go to sleep so that the pain will go away. She lay down there watch her favorite cartoon but didn't go to sleep. After 30 minutes, there she goes playing and jumping around forgot about the pain and her teeth.
That's her first experience pulling out a teeth and the pain, and getting new teeth. I am glad she's doing fine!
