A’aesyah’s Slametan Marhabanan

We came back to my parents house in Parit Sulong for A’aesyah’s first slametan – the 1st hair shaving when the child is 40 days old. Taking in the form of marhabanan, DH takes A’aesyah amidst the members of the Simpang 3 mosque of Parit Tegak, starting with the imam, followed by my brother Faiz as the assistant who brings a tray with the young coconut for the cut hair and Dad who brings the goodies of perfumed pandan potpourri.

The “hair shaving” is then properly done by my grandmother the next morning. Although A’aesyah spots a Sinead O’Connor now, she is wears the same adorable smile as before.
