My Pretty Baju

There was a little package sent to me on Thursday, my very first post addressed to me! When Kakak opened it, out came 2 beautiful dresses! Since Kakak do not know much English, I used simple words like, "Wear baju (Malay: Clothes)" to tell her I want to wear those beautiful dresses! Kaka put one on for one, and then the other, I love them so much. I twirled around, turning turning turning turning, until my head started spinning, and Kakak had to hold me still so that I don't fall. She then took the clothes off from me even though I held on to the hem. I wanted to tell her "Please don't take it off, I want to wear it for the rest of the day" but I think Kakak won't understand such complex English. On Friday, mummy worked from home. Yippie! During lunch time, Mummy took out those dresses again, she told me these are from Aunty Jesslyn, who had personally sewn them for me. I went "Wah" upon hearing that. She asked Kakak to put them on for me, and she went to take out the mean looking camera. Ah, who cares about the camera, the dresses are lovely. "Pretty Baju" I told them. Again, I turned round and round and round. I thought it looked like some ballet moves, but mummy said, "Stop turning Zara, you look like you are mabuk (Malay: Drunk)!" The dress is so comfortable; the baby doll one has beautiful lace at the hem, and an embroidered top. And it's the same colour as Mr Blue! I was enjoying walking about, playing with my glass pebbles when mummy started asking me to do all the faces I know how to pull, and put the mean looking camera near my face. I had to quickly follow her instructions, or she won't put away the mean thing.

Ah.. I was exhausted after all these, I went to my pram, announced, "tired, lie down, rest" and hope mummy will leave me alone in my beautiful dress. Thank you Aunty Jesslyn, for such lovely dresses. Next time if I have chocolate and sweets, I'll share with Wien jiejie and Lyon ok? HUG HUG! *MUAK*

PS Aunty Jesslyn, too bad I can't go to the post office myself, or else, I can send Lyon and Wien jie-jie those boring, err I mean interesting, Sesame Streets, Bob The Builder VCDs mummy is 'forcing' me to watch.

Now we wait for the Pumpkin carriage to take Zara to the Ball at the Palace.. :-) Glass slippers?...

may said...

woooo, pwetty girl! she looks lovely!

my uncle used to buy me dresses from the UK when he worked there many, many years ago. I was an eager 3-year-old twirling in my long dresses too, with all the lace and ribbons... *G*

sesame said...

Lovely dresses! You're one lucky girl! You look so happy in them. Must be very reluctant to have them removed right? Girls have so much more fun when it comes to clothes. I know. I was a kid like you before. ;)

Btw, you call Tuyam Kakak?

maria @ twinsmom said...

You are good, can write a post from Zara's eye, I can never do this, I tried but just can't :D.

Fantasy "Sticky" Flier said...

I agree, I prefer Barney to be more educational :P

JoMel said...

I love having girls, can dress them up like dolls. So many so many so many pretty dresses!

Helen said...

Pretty, pretty , pretty. That's the only words I can say! lol

Call me old fashioned... I always like to see little girls in cute pretty dresses. (psst not those gaudy looking dresses like those 80s nightclub hostess garb...:-P)

Passerby A said...

Wow! Those dress are home made? I saw the photos before I read the post, and I thought they were store-bought. Very very nice indeed!

michelle said...

"Yeah, Aunty Jess is a fantastic tailor when I grow up, must learn from her." Zara's thoughts

mom2ashley said...

Jason said...

Wah, so nice got presents from Auntie Jesslyn. :D Heh!

geetha said...

Nice dress.. she looks cute..

Hmmm, nice to have girls ah.. can dress them up.. with boys, not much choices..

blurblur said...

Ya, you can doll girls up..boys?? the choices are simply so limited...

Cocka Doodle said...

Hi Zara, uncle Cocka is going to send you a chicken suit soon. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy fluttering those feathers about and crowing at the top of your voice.

Zara's Mama said...

Simple American,
Yeah.. such an angel huh? Don't want to disturb Mummy and Daddy, and got her own post up. I wonder how she knows the password to my notebook.. hmm.. :P

LB,
Actually I wanted to send these photos to apply for the modelling post in Iceberg.. but I know you'll be seeing her butt naked, so I thought maybe not..

May,
Lucky you!! Your uncle must have loved you so much..

Aunty Sesame,
Thank you. No wonder my mummy always force me to try this clothes try that clothes.. and put those funny clips on me.
Yes, I call my Kakak, Kakak.
Next time I go out with Gavin Kor-kor, can I bring Kakak and mummy along?

Maria,
It's difficult for you ler.. how to write from their perspective? Because you have 2. Me one only, easy mah.

Potential Mom,
Millie jiejie, I can share my baju with you.. You also must share yours with me woh.. I like the bride's maid baju you wore for your D&D. I want I want I want!

Jasmine,
Yeah, actually I think she should start a small home business. She's quite good! And I'm sure a lot of mummies will buy from her.

Fantasyflier,
wow, you are a fan of Barney too? Do you hug one to sleep??
Pss, you can tell me, I won't tell my mummy. Promise.

Jomel,
Yes, girls have so many options.. Dresses, pants, blouses, spagetti top etc etc etc.. Aah.. isnt' it wonderful to have girls?

Helen,
Yeah, dresses are nice.. but I only let Zara wear one when we go out for dinners. The rest of the time, it's 2 pieces..
I don't like those gaudy looking dresses too.. You know once my dad went to Phillipines, he bought one of these for King's Wife's daugthers.. you can imagine how we laughed about it.. until today. :P

The Diva,
Yeah, Jesslyn is a very good tailor, and she's only doing this part time. Her 2 girls are lucky, they get lots of home sewn clothes by mummy!

Michelle,
Well said, Aunty Michelle! I sure want to be like Aunty Jesslyn. Don't want to be like my mummy, always so lazy one, do nothing at home. :|

Mom2Ashley,
Thanks.. they are huh? Better than store bought. And the embroided piece is antique from the 60s!

Jason,
Yeah loh.. so nice..
Anything from Jason kor-kor?? Maybe the multilayer cake? *ahem*

Geetha,
Now you can try for a girl.. and doll her up as well. Wow.. I can imagine a little girl will look nice in a Punjabi suit. Btw, do they have little girl's sari?

Blurblur,
Yeah loh.. with boys, choices are more limited.
Now go and try for a girl la.. *wink*

Contented Mum said...

Wow, so nice to have a parcel address to my very own name and contain such pretty dresses.

domestic rat said...

So sweet! A parcel in Zara's name. She must love the dresses judging from her beaming wide smiles.

Jesslyn said...

Wei, Zara, stay up so late hah? is time to sleep ler....
I send this post to hubby, he ask me to do it part time & sell online..(this is not the 1st time he ask me to do so). But me dun hv so much confidence lar! Just still thinking do or not do!

Tracy said...

Wah, wah, wah, Zara looked so pretty in the dresses. Why do u dislike the camera so much? Can take nice nice pretty pictures of u mar. Auntie Tracy would like to ask what time do u go to sleep? U know u should be oredi sleeping at the time u were posting? Naughty, naughty, cannot go to sleep?

HMom said...

Hey Zara - you look really pretty in those dresses.

Ha - the joys of having a girl

Helen said...

So, did either Ally or Sam finally wore it?? LOL

Zara's Mama said...

Contented Mum,
Yes.. especially nowadays where you only get bills from the mail. :(

Domestic Rat,
She really loves them. If it was something not so nice, she would turn her face to the other side and said, "Don't want".

Jesslyn,
I left a comment in your blog liao.. I think you really should consider doing this part time. Put up a different blog with all the designs you can sew, then let the mummies place the orders loh. Got order ma make, no order ma make for Wien & Lyon only loh. :P

Aunty Tracy,
My mummy and daddy alwasy hog the line when they are not asleep, so I can only blog when they are asleep loh. Poor me hor?

Aunty Hmom,
Thank you.. Yes, all girls can dress up pretty pretty. Like Harvyna jiejie.

Helen,
You think KW's will let her kids wear those dresses after she'd made the grave mistake of wearing one in her own wedding? Haha..

Zara's Mama said...

Uncle Cocka,
I forgot about replying to you..
(Actually, my mummy told me you are not a good boy, always tease her about her spare tyre, I mean beautiful figure, don't entertain you so much).
Chicken suit will be nice, make sure it's made with your feathers ok, when you get skinned?
Oh.. my mummy made me said that. And she asked me to tell you, watch your misai!

shiaulin said...

hey Zara, while u are posting this, issit mummy and daddy are doing 'something' in the room so they locked u outside to let u play with their computer? :p

lovely dress!! Pretty Zara.

Allyfeel said...

oh wow what lovely dress Zara has!

Would you like to dance- Bb ask?

Zara's Mama said...

Aunty Shiaulin,
Mummy and Daddy said something about Baby, then locked me outside.. that's why on weekend, I pretended to be a baby loh.. Or else maybe they'll lock me out again.

Aunty Allyfeel,
Sure I want to go dancing with BB. BB got money or not? I want to sit horsey horsey in 1U before we go dancing can?

geetha said...
