Tomorrow's Hadi's Birthday, but...

Tomorrow, the 5th of March is Hadi's fifth birthday. I have planned a birthday party for him at school. I've packed the goody bags for his friends, bought a cake and made the first batch of cupcakes for his party!

BUT, there's no school tomorrow! ARGHhhhh! We already know that today the ICC (International Criminal Court)'s going to serve the warrant of arrest to Sudan's President. So, we're already on alert for possible demonstrations. Last night, the parents decided not to let the kids go to school today, just a precaution actually. 

But I didn't expect that the school will be closed tomorrow...sigh... I got the notification while I was decorating the cupcakes. Luckily, it was only the first batch! Anyway, we'll try to have it on Sunday when the school's open again.

Since we're on the same street as the President's Palace, we're already feeling the heat, here. We could hear the helicopters overhead and my husband said that tanks were already infront of the palace. We also heard that there'll be a huge rally/demonstration in Khartoum tomorrow. So, I don't know whether my husband's going to work or not, because his office is quite near to the central of Khartoum. 

Anyway, I feel frustrated with this turn of events, actually. Why is the ICC so determined to serve the warrant? I really feel that they should serve the Israel a warrant for what they've been doing to Palestine! This would only halt the peace process that the Sudan's government trying to do with the South...ish, how unfair!!! Just because Sudan's an islamic country! Please pray for our safety. Insyaallah, nothing untoward would happen. Tawakkal illallah...
 
I decorated a few with a 'zoo' theme, tigers, elephants and dinosaurs (green)...
hehehe, animals are Hadi's favourite, especially dinosaurs!!!

When they heard that tomorrow's no school, they started eating the cupcakes...sigh...

A box full of goodies...

I pun tengok dalam news jugak. I agree with you... kenapa Israel tu tak kena tindakan ICC? Sebab Israel selalu gunakan istilah'defence'.. 'we defence ourself'. Memang tak adil.

p/s: Thnks for khatam my blog... terharunya. I'll khatam yours okey.
