Ethan's First Hair Cut!

The week flew past and we headed into another weekend here in KL again. It's scary, certainly, how time flies and leaves tracks on your face / hips / thighs... Or was it the Nasi Bojari I just ate? :P

Anyway, two days ago, on Friday 5 February 2010, we did something special - Ethan had his very first hair cut!!

Filled with trepidation during the car ride to Mid Valley Mega Mall, I prayed that Ethan would sit still in the car (on Daddy's lap) and not wriggle around and have his ears shaved off / scream at the top of his voice and lose his voice just in time for Chinese New Year :P

I was glad that my son was in a stupor before we left the house and during the car ride. This stupor lasted for quite a while into the hair cut, as well. :)

At La Mode Salon, Uncle Bill ran his long fingers through our son's hair. Ethan, since birth, has been very well-endowed with thick and even unruly hair. Hell, even his back was hairy (but that's another story and thankfully it can be told in the past tense)!! Uncle Bill always jokes that there's no need to shave our son's hair in the hope that he will have a thick mop of hair in the future- He is our stylist and he always has to deal with both Alan's and my thick (and coarse) hair. hahaha

Anyway, we attacted a mob of spectators and Ethan got his hair cut. Bill used the layering scissors and etc and after he was done, Ethan still had his bed-head look. So we decided to shave the sides shorter.

Ethan was cooperative for half the session (it really took a while) and was still, balancing on the head rest of the salon chair, uncomfortably, with Alan holding him up. However, he started crying loudly when he came outta his stupor and at least two more salon assistants came to cheer him up. hahaha. Soon, there were sweet young things, heavily made up women and even a pedicurist joining in the fun. hahaha.

After the ordeal, Ethan looked so much cuter and more mature! I carried him whilst Alan had his hair wash and cut and fed him in the enclosed room behind the salon. :)

We rewarded ourselves with dinner at Madam Kwan's and , as I had skipped lunch, I opted for a nasi Bojari whilst Alan had assam laksa. We both shared a dessert of sinful bur bur char char.
