Aidil Adha Reception

It’s Saturday, and we have an Aidil Adha reception to attend, hosted by the Consulate General of Malaysia at Vancouver. Daddy had an IELTS exam to take this morning, so I’ll have to meet Mommy and gang at the reception after my test is over.

My exam finished at around 1:45 pm (it started at 8:30 am). I hurried down from SFU Harbour Centre to the Ukrainian Hall (where we had the MABC Deeparaya festivities). The reception is from 12 pm to 2 pm. I know, the event will be over by the time I get there, but I should be able to say hi to the hosts, and show that I didn’t completely forget their event.

Mommy and the kids arrived late too. It’s always hard to move the kids in the morning. They were so late that Mommy decided to take a cab there (which was really, really expensive, to us anyway – not recommended unless you have the cash). They arrived just before I did.

When I arrived, Mommy was already mingling with a few guests. Some kids from some of the families were still there. And the kids immediately started playing with them. They ran around the stage like they normally do, kind of like at the CG Eid Reception.

Anyway, we didn’t stay long, since people were already leaving. It was a short stay, and we headed home. When we got home, the kids had a chance to try out their new scooter. And Arman tried his new remote control car he got from Nenek for his birthday.

Tomorrow, we’re planning to go ice-skating before taking a short trip via Zip Car to the halal store for some supplies
