a blast it was...

yesterday nite i celebrated incek suami's birthday at this place called kokopelli travellers bistro, situated somewhere in section 14/46, pj. it was a surprise birthday dinner i planned few days earlier despite my hectic schedule (shooting the diva again for 2 straight days, sampai malam pulak tu and another shoot, for products only, pon sampai malam.. really tiring!) with sis#3. at first i wanted to make it a small gathering, you know just the usual suspect, the son, the mom and the sis.. but suddenly i got this idea, to invite mrmanager along since berx sendiri pon tak jumpa mrmanager since konsert #7 af7 (berx was there alone for 3 consecutive weeks, mrmanager kena buat his main job, managing his artists that is.. but actually they met during erra fazira's daughter's cukur jambul last saturday, mrmanager sendiri yang invite berx to shoot lil engku aleesya)

so, i messaged him in fb (dah terpikir that maybe he can't make it.. artiste manager.. busy maa...) and to my honour, he accepted it! haha.. when it comes to thing like this, i memang cepat nervous! i don't usually into this kinda nak gila glamour ke apa ke, but thinking that i really wanted to meet him personally, some more berx pon dah kenal dia, so i give it a go.

and so, when yesterday came, i told b that i wanted to treat him dinner, and only the 2 of us and of course, i'm such a good actor, he was thinking that we were really going to have dinner berdua saja (sampai cakap kesiann zaes sebab dia takde..). and the best part was, i never been to this place and we ended up sesat barat and dah ke mana2 tah sampai i have to call my cousin (miya & jai joined the dinner too! er.. to other family members, esp my 2 elder sisters, nieces and bro-in-law jangan la kecik hati ok. nanti i shall organise another one at the same place...) and asked for directions! b was furious mad - "apsal susah sangat nak pegi tempat ni? why cant we eat somewhere else? yadda yadaa.." - but, again, being a good actor i am, try to be patient and looked for the place sampai jumpa! and yang paling kelakar tu, tempat tu is like a familiar place and i don't know why i lost my way there.. (read: tak reti baca map laaa i ni..)

dengan muka yang lapar, we went inside the place, i've reserved the private room beforehand, just enough for the 9+1 of us, and bila masuk into the room (siap tutup lampu lagi), i saw the usual suspects dah ready with desert as a birthday cake. berx was blurred when they shouted "surprise!!!" and hell yeah he was very surprised to see the usual suspects. especially zaes laa.. his beloved son. oh, at this time around, mrmanager blom sampai lagi sebab dia pon sesat barat! sorry! my bad!

berx was grinning ear-to-ear sebab dia memang betul2 surprised. then, while waiting for the food to be served (oh! food was fabulous and the place, the waiters/waitresses and even the owner were superb!) mrmanager stepped in. clad in a white jm (i believed it's jovian mandagie la kot) diamantes (or was it swarovski crystals?) studded top (very bling-bling ok) and khaki coloured pants, with his signature gucci bag on his other hand, he smiled and greeted us. again, i shouted "surprise!!" and berx had this eh..-oh..-mrmanager-is-here-to-makan-here-issit? look at his face. yup. again, he didnt expect mrmanager to joined us. and no i didn't forget, sweet nikki (yes nikki the singer)and mrmanager's best buddy, ismail were there too to celebrate berx' birthday! yay! (and suddenly i became all bubbly and nervous and what not to see them around.. live! haha..)

and so they say, the rest is history.. we had great fun, we ate, we talked, we discussed (can you believe it, i gave breastfeeding tips to mrmanager for some reason.. heh adala..) and nikki had real food! steak! yay! (poor nikki, she was early but at the wrong place, some more kena jalan far from where she parked her car..) and oh! she was totally different from what you'd normally see her on tv or internet, minus the makeup, she looked glowing and small.. like yeah.. really small and very sweet-demure-girl-next-door looking... she's getting married kan, can't hide the happiness eh? (dahla aku selamba je cakap dia 25 when she's 24.. heh sorry!)

aiyah.. so much to tell, so little time. gotta stop now. and i'll let the pic tell the story la ok!
and for those who didnt know, mrmanager dah tutup his mrmanager's blog and open a new one called v. please update your link if you haven't do so.. i know i haven't.. muahahahaaa..

and once again, terima kasih to those who joined! ah.. such great place to dine-in also. i recommend you to go there, fusion of local and western. 100% halal and tak jual liquor jugak. price wise, affordable. they also open for lunch and once again it's kokopelli travellers bistro, situated at #4, jalan ss14/46, section 14, pj.

i love you all!
