Jordan's Full Moon Celebration

Woke up around 6a.m. today. It was really chilling cold I tell you. Then I went to the market near my house to buy some fish and vegetables. More importantly I went there to grab the most important food of the day-Ang Ku Kuih. Yep! I ordered 30 of these "Ang Ku Kuih" for my little Jordan's full moon celebration. Yep! Today my whole family is very excited because we would be celebrating little Jordan's important day. By the time I reached home, almost all my family members were awake. :)

After all of us had taken our shower, off we (daddy, my brother and me) went to the bakery shop. 10 minutes of drive and we were already there busy moving all those boxes of Full Moon tarts and eggs into the car. Then we headed for our next stop-my grandparents house. We placed our offerings together with the special full moon  tarts. Then we immediately rushed home to pray mommy dearest. We have to rush because it will be a whole day "event". :p But on the way we have already sent the full moon boxes to some of our relatives.

Then back at home, my little Jordan was already in front of the door, greeting our homecoming. Ha :D My wife told me that he did not want to sleep because he is equally exciting. Hmm...looks like he knows that today is his big day aye. Then came the important ceremonial event. My daddy snipped some of Jordan's hair as a sign that he has grown up. I am sure that my daddy is very ecstatic. Just look at his face and his broad smile. I am happy too. Truly I am. :D

After that little Jordan had to take his bath. We included come coins and his gold pendant into his bath tub as a sign of prosperity. Well...the confinement lady said so. After that my little Jordan donned his Disney's Tiger Suit! Roooaaarrr! The outfit which we have bought for him is a little big for him, but I am sure little Jordan will grow up very soon. After he was all dressed up. His "A~Kong" (Grandpa) carried him and offered prayers to the God and my dearest mommy.

Later on, me and my daddy embarked on our Journey to Tangkak-my beloved late mommy's hometown. It took us around 40 minutes to reach there. My aunties were of course happy to see us appearing at their doorsteps. All of them were saying that they cannot believe that I am now a daddy. They could hardly believe it. So am I. Ha :D We had lunch together and chit chat for a while. After that we headed back to our nest-Malacca.

Back at home, I slightly pushed the door ajar. I tip toed inside and saw my little Jordan was sound asleep in his warm cot. I looked at my beloved wife and both of us smiled. Both of us are really happy to have little Jordan in our lives. Jordan is truly a blessing to my wife and I. Thank God. And I know that my father, brother, and sister-in-law are very happy too. But I must say that I am the happiest of them all. I am beaming with bliss right now. :D
