It’s My Party and I’ll Sulk If I Want To

I did an open house last Saturday and only 5 people from my office came. 5 People!! I invited 50 and cooked for 100 (to include spouse, kids, maid, etc). Even my boss didn’t come. I think this speaks volumes about how much I’m appreciated here. Granted the weather wasn’t so good in the afternoon, but those who made it were determined enough. Further more, the invitation stated the open house was until 9pm.

What’s worse is coming into the office on Monday and having everyone say thank you for the invitation but sorry I couldn’t come because cat died/kids were sick/got another wedding/tahlil/open house to go to. Whatever. If I have to hear one more excuse, I’ll just scream inside.

Ok, this is the first and the last time I do an open house. Next time, I’ll just invite the 5 that came last Saturday and do a small makan-makan

Mmm that blows.

But just in case it makes you feel better, a friend of mine SMSed me in the middle of the night asking me to come for seconds. :-(

Ah, to have faith in the human spirit.

Dropping by for the first time ... been there done that ... that's the malaysian way .. It happens in mot functions .... weddings especially .. anyway, you're on the right track ..just invite the closest of ur friends .. and the next time when u organise such a function , those ppl ehich u have conveniently dropped off the list will sulk and merajuk bcoz they didn't get invited ...DUH!!!!

ohh plizzz!! You’re acting like a kiddo lah! It’s entirely up to your colleagues whether they feel like going or not…you’ve done your part by inviting them. It’s their call what… Stop being crabby about it. It happens… c’mmon cheer up! Forgive and forget…

To anonymous: Next time write your name jAckasses!!! Yeah, it's up them to come or not, and it's up to me to be upset or not. It's not like I'm asking a refund from them or anything. Like I wrote, if I want to be crabby or childish, what's it to you!! Tak habis duit eden pun!!!

Astaghfirullahalazim...
kita menjemput org dgn ikhlas & org akan dtg pun dgn ikhlas utk menziarah kita masa open hse kan...bersyukur dgn tetamu yg dtg walaupun 5 org. Bawak bertenang & sabar...ada hikmahnya tu...yg baik dtg dari Allah Taala, yg buruk dtg dari diri kita sendiri.

Look I wrote this post to help me feel better; to get it all out coz God knows, there's no one out there I can talk about this too (apart from hubby). Granted, I knew comments like this might get posted and yeah, that's up to you to say what you want, but you gotta respect my feelings. I have a feeling Anonymous is someone that's feeling guilty perhaps. Whatever!! Barang dah lepas, sekarang dah tau. Memang ikhlas le mengajak tu kan, lantak depa le nak mai ke tidak. Tapi bile pikirkan, apesal aku boleh hormati undangan org lain, mai time ribut, mai time blackout, mai time tengah sibuk, walaupun sekejap, depa takleh. But, like you said, itu terpulang pada depa lah. Aku dah malas nak pikir apa2 lagi pasel tu. Bikin pedih hati jer...
To the 5 friends that did come, thanx a million. Tak sesia jugaklah aku pulun masak seharian.

mungkin kawan-kawan ramai kena datang open house. pastu tak sempat pegi rumah along. Mungkin tahun depan diorang akan datang.

hummm... yeah along, u r right. it's ur blog n it's ur comment. everybody doesnt have their right to say u r childish enough to put this small matter on a blog. heck, maybe there is something wrong about you that people didnt even bother to come anyway... (if they have nothing to do over the weekendlah kan... biasanyer org tak tolak majlis makan2 nih...)

along babe... so sorry me tak dpt dtg, pasal ade wedding with my mum, then kene pegi beli barang etc2...
don't get angry ya'.... love always from me :) btw you have the right to say anything on the blog..along fighting...

If i were you i will be upset too along, mainly not because the invitees did not turn up but the foods yang kita masak sampai berlebih2x will go to waste not to mention the effort put into that...Maybe if the invitees informed you earlier of not coming, you can make arrangements to cut the food.
Excuses after that is annoying kan? In a way now, you will know friends who truly care. It's somewhat a blessing in disguise :)
