Do I sound exaggerate? I really hope that Elle and Aqeef can be a pair of best friend, and that will worth a week of my effort of knitting Elle with my own both hands.
Ok so Elle is an elephant, a knitted elephant that took a week from my life doing it. It’s petite and cute, might be a pygmy elephant because it’s too small but not that tricky even it does sounds tricky. But trust me if you get the pattern, even a dummy can do it. Elle is the name I gave him. Unlike elephants we watch in National Geographic or Animal Planet, Elle is not an African elephant, well it is a British because it was born at London. Elle sounds a bit female, but I believe it’s a male elephant.
Aqeef already has PoPo, a hippo, Browny, a bear and Barney (I guess you should know Barney, the purple dinasour). Barney can talk by himself, few recorded sentences,using a man’s voice that sounds so like ‘lelaki gatal’ and I’ve already memorised them. He repeatedly says “Hello to all my friend”, “You’re super duper”, “Remember I love you”. Pantang terusik menatang tu start berbunyi. What a boring purple dino. However PoPo, Browny and latest Elle can’t talk. So each time playing with his best friends, mommy has to do unpaid dubbing to characterize PoPo, Browny and Elle. That’s why mommy believes that Elle is a male elephant because mommy voices out male’s voice for him. Only Browny is a girl. Next time I’ll find another girl best friend for Aqeef.
So today, actually Aqeef got an invitation from his school friend to join a birthday party. That boy’s house is on the next street to ours. But as mommy is fasting and Aqeef is too small to join a party, mommy decided not to go. As a replacement, mommy and Aqeef with PoPo, Barney, Browny and Elle have picnic at the backyard.
You see, Barney and Browny cuba membuat pakatan sulit. Mereka selalu meminggirkan PoPo,mentang-mentang PoPo gemuk macam badak.
Daddy look, you always want to play ball with him, and now he already know how to play…He is ur Mesut Ozil!
PoohBall as opposed to football, it is played using hands. Suit a delicate baby!
BTW I wonder why daddy has this problem of calling Aqeef’s best friend using the name we gave them. He calls PoPo as badak, and Browny as Russ, which Russ is the name of that teddy bears’s manufacturing company. And now he calls Elle as Mahmud (actually he Malaysianised the mammoth). Weird daddy.
ooo before I forget, this is the picture of Elle before I assembled him. One day I’ll show him this picture and say, Elle look that was you before you become a proper elephant!
