...my darling big eyes finally turned 5 on 15 April 2010... Alhamdulillah...
And his specific requests were : a new bicycle and a Mickey Mouse Birthday Brownie with a twist. So, the first was quite easily achieveable. Then came the matter of the twist in his birthday brownie. It wasn't just Mickey Mouse, it was Mickey Mouse with Speed Racer's Costume at the School Spirit Event. Well, not exactly his entire costume, just his hair : afro style in red, white and blue. In Damascus' exact words, "so, it is Mickey Mouse, with a big round hair, and the hair is divided into 3which is red, white and blue. You can make the red and blue either on the left or right, it doesn't matter; but the centre must be white! Can ya mommy...yayyy!!!"
With that said, did you think I had a choice?
Just out of curiosity I did ask him, "But why do you want Mickey Mouse with Speed Racer's costume hair? Isn't it weird?" He answered, "Acus suka. Acus nak."
Bewildered, I googled and youtubed and googled some more. Nope, no red, white and blue Speed Racer hair. Not even that particular episode of the School Spirit Day Event. So I sought help from Esfahan, to illustrate Damascus' request and shed some light unto mommy's blurry path. So drew Esfahan did...Mickey's head and face, with complete features and colour specs, and then the hair - one big, almost complete circle from ear to ear, with 3 parts, red, white and blue.
So, with mommy being mommy, not Carlos the Cake Boss or Wiz da Wiz, but with the unconditional love a mommy has for her son, here was what Damascus eventually got... :)
Do you see the "Hidden Mickey"?! Hehe...
In a matter of minutes, Mickey's "ears" disappeared, and so did Speed Racer's red, white and blue "hair"! And there was enough left of Mickey's "face" for ayah to tapau to Muar, for his event that weekend... :)
...Damascus with his new, red mountain bike. It has to be red... :)
