But before that...I did my own research on the ritual to have 'baby shower'... Actually, Baby Shower as a term is relatively new, but the celebrations and rituals associated with pregnancy and childbirth are both ancient, traditional & enduring you know! In Malay custom, we call it as ' adat melenggang perut', but in differently practice where it is a custom done on a 7 months pregnant lady and it aims to position the baby in the stomach in its proper place, which is the head at the door of the womb. And also it is being conducted with a very traditional way with have own equipment and steps (hahha...this one I found from Wiki:):
- 7 pieces of different colors of cloth
- 1 bushel of rice
- 1 coconuts
- Some thread veins
- A trunk resin
- A little coconut oil/ massage oil
- Some candles
Hahahhaa....but in my case, I don't really experienced my baby shower to be very complicated and traditionally done as above.... I just want to have chill and chat time with friends and families maybe! It's more on get together session la.... where you can share stories and snap pics of course! In short, my baby shower's idea was contemporary way where you can get together with friends and there shouldn't be any set rule to this! It's just makan makan...laughing....chatting & release stress :)
So...the idea was...hahhaha... It's was spontaneous outing! I told Mitchel & Izzat (both are my best buddies) that this time pregnancy I feel to throw my own baby shower party. They laughed..and they suggested that we could go outing at KLCC . Since Famy was out station, so I agreed to join them outing on weekend time. The plan was watching movie & lepaking at Ben's Place KLCC. Hahahha... guess what movie that I watched? Hansel & Gretel!!!!!! Horror sgt tgk witches die.... But I just tutupkan mata bila babak horror tu!

Session chill, chat & laugh... ops... Mitchy & Izzat gave surprise gift! A cute soft toy bear :)

Overall I was happy on that day! It's made my day......
