Yesterday was Husayn's best friend's 3rd birthday. I can safely say she is his best friend because since Husayn was small up to now, they've been each other's only play mates. When I used to go to work, I would leave him over at Nadeen's house, where they were given very good care by Kakak Ija. He loves them both SO much and I think of them as part of my own family.
The sad part is, they plan to go home for good to Malaysia really soon. So, I guess he'll miss her a LOT. You guys will be missed!! Even now, every single day Husayn keeps asking me to bring him to Nadeen's house to play as if he knows that time is running out with his best friend. Knowing me, I am just too lazy to go out if there is no special occassion or things to do. Maybe, if they were my next door neighbour of course, I'll pop over anytime.
Anyway, on one occasion before we went to her house I was looking at a girl's picture on my laptop and I asked him...
Mummy: Husayn, is that girl cute?
Mummy: Is she your girlfriend?
Husayn: Because Nadeen's my girlfriend!!!
Mummy: Smiling (in my mind.. boy oh boy...)
Well, back to the party itself. Her mommy invited us to Nadeen's Green-themed Tinker Bell party. Apart from the present for Nadeen, I decided to do her mommy a favour by baking green cinnamon rolls for the party. This time, I tried to use a Brioche recipe by Artisan Bread in Five instead. It doesn't involve using an electrical mixer and it's easy too. Oh yeah..I put green colouring to adapt the party's theme. And, pink icing too...OMG!!!
But my husband still prefers the cinnamon rolls I made using the receipe from Amber's blog.
