I bumped into Shaz when we were having lunch at the same restaurant sometimes in the end of 2010. I just realised how time flies very fast when I received a text message recently from her asking me to come & shoot for the majlis aqiqah for her newborn baby girl. Her third beautiful baby with darling hubby named Sara Nur Iman. Such a beautiful name.
As I get in the house there were a beautifully decorated cradle for baby Sara in the middle of the house. It was very simple & sweet with some roses & bird-cage hanging look like a mini fantasy garden.
The tray with the containers for honey & tamar with rose-water for the ceremony.
Baby Sara was asleep and being in her own world even when her mother was placing her in the cradle and throughout the marhaban recital and the cutting hair ceremony.
Small feet, happy feet of baby Sara
The marhaban group of lovely ladies plays very beautiful music with great vocal. Four of them plays drums & kompang. We were all amazed by the way they perform and delivering the stories from the Quran.
Baby Sara was so good being in the wrap of her mother’s arms and just sleep throughout the ceremony and not even a move when the marhaban group performing. She was so cute when refuse to be fed with honey & tamar even with the eyes closed!
Lovely Shaz with her little angel baby Sara who was awake once a while to be fed.
Look at Soraya’s hand, classic scene of her playing with mama’s ear!
Little Ali, his fabulous granny Datin Laila call him kampung boy! He greeted me with his cute smile when I arrived. I was told, he loves to run around the house bare feet! Almost I didn’t recognise him when the last time I was there, Ali was the one they celebrated with his aqiqah.
It’s foodie time! The food like always, was brilliant! There were roasted lamb, various types of yummy dishes, rice, stall of char kuey teow, satay & kabab. I was full for so many rounds!
Kids just want to have fun! Soraya & cousin sister was having great time in the midst of balloons! I want that too!
Thank you to Shaz & Ashura for having me again and to be in front of my lens with the rest of the family and friends. With the great food and the lovely day to celebrate another love of their life.
