Of oreos and Aisyyyy....
It was Obe's one and only nephew birthday last Thursday. The first time I met him was when they (Obe's family) came to JB to visit arwah Tok Bah and he was just still a little gem, as fair as a caucasian baby, tiny and fragile yet adorable at the same time. One year has passed and when I finally get to meet him, he already started tottering across the hall.
But he still am the gem of the house :)
He did easily get amused by anything but me :( I am not in his list but maybe he knows I am not that good with babies and kids heh?
He was sleepy by then so his Mom let him play with her purse. A big sign for a big spender wannabe huh?
