We are still preparing for the big family event, which includes building canvas camp, gifts, flow of event, planning food & drinks serving and singing the special song. Yep, the special song from the grandchildren of Pois Siawan, in which I am included and must sing it too. Being the eldest grandchild, I felt really… haha, I don’t know what to say. After church activity tomorrow, I will head to my grandma’s house to help building up the canvas tent.

Will blog about the pre-event and the event day soon.

Remember remember, the 5th of November.

    my family also gonna have gathering, end of this year. i just cant wait it. this year, my uncle's place will be the "tuan rumah". at tambunan. from the meeting i heard, there will be a queen of the nite. 1st time i heard it, i was like, what the hell is that activity? we are not doing a prom nite here. But, with so many ble bla bla from the "orang-orang tua", i just can smile.:)
    i am pretty sure, the cousins and aunts, will dress up and maybe jealous to each other when someone will be the "queen" that nite. offcoz,i think its not gonna happen. but u know, WOMEN. haha. but for me, i rather chose my grandma to be the "queen". so that, no quarreling or jealousy. plus, its a big appreciation for her i think. by the way, have a good planning! make some interesting activities on that day. 🙂
