Outing with the boys

Still calling them my boys although they are all grown up men now! My youngest and second one, a 25 and 26 year olds respectively. 15th was my second son's birthday. An excuse to eat out for me since I was not in the mood to cook. Anyway nowadays, always not in the mood after a morning walk, pottering in the garden for half a day...too tired to cook after that! I guess age is catching up with me!


Birthday boy...2nd son, first to get married and soon-to-be father!


youngest (Alan) and second (Rezza) sons


birthday slice of strawberry marble cake




birthday boy's choice...not sure what...Vietnamese or Sarawak noodles?


youngest one's choice - macaroni with cheese, too creamy and cheesy, he couldn't finish it!


Mine..just nice!


We didn't go very far for the outing, just a 10 mins drive to a Secret Recipe outlet near my house. Just to have a simple lunch with my two younger sons, since its very seldom they are having off-day at the same time. The eldest boy is working elsewhere and will only come home on weekends. As far as I can remember, I have always been closer to these two since their age gap is only about 1 1/2 years apart, while the eldest is 7 years apart from the second one. The eldest seemed to go with his friends more rather than with his two younger brothers maybe because of the age gap are too far apart. Anyway, they are all still Mama's boys...still manje2 and close to me like they were small kids! I know I will miss them if they are all married someday and live apart from me!

My boys an girl are much much older than yours, with boys and girls of their own. But they are still my dear boys and girl - as long as I am their father.

What a lovely lunch with your two younger sons!

p3chandan said...

Ye Man, sejuk hati bila dia orang masih rapat dan sentiasa menghargai kita.

Betul tu cikmanggis, tambah takde yang nak menolong sama...

Tima kasih Deliah sudi bertandang ke blog akak ni.My boys semua nye dah besar panjang tapi nasib baik dia orang tak malu nak kluar bersama shopping atau jalan2 ke. Ade setengah anak2 bila dah besar rase malu nak kluar ngan mak dah..tak tau knape kan?

Hi Bob thanks for dropping by and be a follower. Will check out your blog soon.

Yes Pakcik Hassan, they will always be our boys and girls no matter how old they are. I enjoyed the closeness I have with my 3 boys and will cherish the good memories!

Hi Giga, thanks for your comment.

Thanks Theanne, love and enjoyed the outing with my boys!

I absolutely adore that kitten in the header photo!!! how cute is that!

Vinni said...

You said it right, no matter how old we are, we are always kids to our parents. You will miss them when they are all settled in life but that how life always is.

Thanks for dropping by on my blog

InsyaaAllah not too very long they'll be a father themselves. My boys are just about one and a half years apart too.

Clipped Wings said...

Loved reading this post. I've looked back through your recent posts, and you are a very gifted writer. So much passion and compassion - it shows in everything you write.

p3chandan said...

Thanks Tootsie, my neighbour's kitten which came to stay permanently!

p3chandan said...

Vinne, I will miss them surely when they have their own family and live apart from me. I dread that day!

p3chandan said...

Aishah you have still a long way to go with your kid! Enjoy them!

p3chandan said...

Andrea said...

p3chandan, I've been to UKM, UPM, MARDI, have some friends there. I've stayed in my friend's home from UKM in 2009 for a week while touring around, also had a seminar in UKM. I had a lovely stay. We also visited the old village where her mother and sisters still live, sampled lots of traditional food, which many are similar to ours. I miss my friend already, but she is too busy. Her only daughter drived us to Genting Highlands and KL, and the husband drove us to Putrajaya for the cruise. We had a wonderful time.

p3chandan said...

Andrea, nice to know that you've a friend here and she had brought you around to see our culture and tasted our food!
