Saya makan. Tapi sejak kawin dengan made ni, rasa malas pulak nak makan.
(sila jangan kona-kan pemikiran anda)
Bukan malas pasaipa... Made suka makan daun dia aje. Batang tak berapa. Memula tu give in la jugak. Tak kisahlah kan.. Lelama boring pulak rasa. Nak-nak kalo termakan tang batang yang tak sedap. Geram aje tengok made habiskan daun sayur.
Oleh itu, kalo sapa-sapa mai makan umah saya, jangan la kata saya tak pandai potong sayur; walaupun itulah hakikatnya. Hehehe...

The first time we were there was to watch kungfu panda 2. That was the only cinema that has available seats for KP2. But still, as second timer, we were round and round in finding the parking. Hehe..
We started with tin tin. Alesya slept half way through. Well.. That was part of the plan so that we can watch the movie peacefully. Tintin was fun. Adam enjoyed it too.
Then we continued with happy feet 2. This time around we had Alesya as Gloria's backing singer - if you know what I mean. Hehe... It was more of a musical movie. We did'nt enjoy it as much as the first one.
After the movie ended, we went for zohor prayer and then to secret recipe for lunch. Up again for asar and continued with puss in boots.
Thumbs up for puss!! We had so much fun watching it. Alesya was once again slept during half of the movie - that's a blessing, actually. Hehe...
Again to surau for maghrib before heading home. Caps Square, if you ask me, has nothing except for empty shops. But both me and Made would really want to do this again. We managed to spend the whole day with the kids. We did'nt miss a prayer - alhamdulillah. And there was not so many people. First thought of it - scary. But then we thought, it's better than having have lots of people and you get so stressed up be in a pool of people. Right?

Second half of the day i think, it looked like a lepat pisang.
At the end of the day, i know i cant deny the fact that today, the whole day, my look was nothing but selebet.
Here you are....

Few years back, saya penah jugak buat. Tapiiiii..... Time buat tu saya memang ngek. Resepi suh letak jus pandan. Saya letak pewarna hijau. Sebabnya, saya macam blur bila baca jus pandan tu. Tak terfikir pun tang blend daun pandan untuk dapat jus. Duk fikir mana nak beli aje.. Sudahnya........ As predicted la kan.. Masuk hijau, kuar pun hijaula. Makan hari la jugak "hasil" hijau tu. Ngeri seh tengok toilet bowl waktu tu. Hahaha...
Bebaru ni, masa tokbaq meninggal tu, mak suh mintak daun pandan dari makcik pah. Ehhh... Takdela saya amik daun pandan dari bantal kepala tokbaq tuuu... Ada balance makcik pah bagi. Dua helai saya buat nasik lemak. Sambil duk pandang daun yang berhelai-helai lagi tu, teringat kat onde-onde. Ha... Itu yang menjadik tu..
Inilah onde-onde saya. Comel macam saya kan? Hehehe...~

First day for mama making vanilla cupcakes with choc ganache on top. Nak buat choc melt tak sure macam mana.. Hehehe..
First er... Pre-first lah kot(?) for alesya with ayah in the swimming class too. Next week baru consider first class, kata instructor.
You know what I like about Adam when he enjoys something? He'll smile while doing it.. It has been half an hour of his class, and he is still smiling.

"mama, next year saya 2 cempaka"
Patut ke rasa frust?
Ni yang nak sangat duk umah ni....
Anyway, i havent received the report card. Tengok la peratusan dia macam mana nanti. If there's increment, he's in a good boat. Otherwise, kena study hard sikitlah next year.

Tapi monthly expenses tu tak contra lagi. Camno tu.. Plan dah cantek. Tapi ada aje yang melintang. Haih! Nak air fryer la, vacuum cleaner la, nak bikin rumahla. Macam-macam hajat kalau ikut hati ni tau.
Tadi sembang dengan mak. She plans to being uwan to KL. Saya pulak yang excited dengar. Berdetik jugak dalam hati, kalau saya ada kat umah, boleh la saya nak bawak uwan and/or ma duk umah saya seminggu dua. Sekarang ni, sapa pulak nak jaga makan minum dia. Kami anak beranak pun makan mana sempat aje. Takan nak layan nenek dengan mak mertua gitu kot. Jatuhla saham. Hahahaha...
Last month punya baking project, alhamdulillah - nampak progress. Kena perdalam ilmu lagi ni. I've put aside the money that i got from my baking. Bukanla profit. Tapi bila tengok account tu, tersenyum la jugak tengok hasil tangan sendiri.
Tengoklah.. Insya Allah ada rezeki dan berkat doa, makbul la jugak permintaan saya ni kot..

2As as at today and he's in the running of an iPad. Yay!!
Adam asked me just now, "Mama, if I have all A's but only one B, how?"
"You get two rotans"
"Even if I have all other A's?"
"Alah..... If I have all F?"
"You'll be sleeping in the toilet"

Lepas tu, dia cerita pulak pasal neighbour dia yang kena rompak waktu hujan lebat. Jiran dia tengah bukak pagar, datang orang tanya alamat. Rupa-rupanya orang tu nak merompak.
Lepas tu dia sambung lagi cerita ada orang curi kereta anak saudara neighbour dia yang datang beraya. Pagi dalam pukul 2, dia perasan beberapa orang tolak kereta anak sedara tu, tapi dia tak dela fikir apa-apa. Besoknya, baru dia tau cerita..
Sekarang saya ketakutan. Berdebar-debar sentiasa bila balik dari keje.
Yang mereka ni pun, apa yang seronok sangat mencuri dan merompak tu? Dahlah menyusahkan orang. Tambah dosa lagi. Hishhhhh!!!!!
Tapi heran eh... Used car berlambak-lambak tu, tanak pulak dia curi. Kenderaan yang orang nak pakai tu la yang dia nak aim.
Ya Allah! Mintak dijauhkanlah daripada dugaan yang sebegini. Amin..

We spent last weekend in the Gleneagles
Resort Medical Centre. Kids are getting better and now mama pulak terbatuk-batuk. They were admitted since Thursday after having fever for quite a while. Doc believed they were having the same viral fever but were attacked differently. Adam on his lung and Alesya on her big round tummy. Hehe..
We were ready to pack up and go home when I suddenly had a text message:
“my mom dah x de”
A simple text and yet the impact was hard. It was from Ayu, a good friend from my primary years.
The memory started to reminisce.
She, knew I like soto. And will without fail had me on her mind whenever she has a pot of soto on her kitchen top.
She, cared about me and she knew where had I been, what had I been doing – without seeing me for a while.
She, is Ayu’s mother.
Makcik passed away peacefully yesterday at about 3pm dan telah selamat dikebumikan selepas Maghrib semalam juga.
Now, I feel ralat sebab, this year; somehow I didn’t go to her house for hari raya. Her house is a must in our Hari Raya visiting list. Tapi entah.. Kenapa tak sampai… Bukannya jauh pun.
Ralat jugak sebab every now and then, bila balik dari AEON or whenever I pass through her house, I had the thought of visiting her, but yet.. I kept on procrastinating.
And yesterday, I did visit her, but when I can no longer salam and bergurau senda. I can no longer have a taste of her cooking. I can no longer feel her warmth and motherly cares.
I am missing Makcik already L
Ayu, whenever you’re reading this, it’s not you alone dear… I lost a mother; she is like my mother too…
You take care Ayu, dear..
And Makcik, semoga Allah tempatkan Makcik di sisiNya dan di tempatkan bersama mereka yang disayangiNya. Amin. Al-fatihah

Takpelah mak... Nanti boleh duduk umah jaga cucu eh? Boleh gaduh-gaduh manja dengan bapak. Okeh? Hahaha...
Semalam takde la celebrate apa sangat. Bawak mak makan kat chicken rice shop aje. Hajat nak ke cozy. Tapi for sure la nanti cucu-cucu dia tak reti nak makan apa. Nak kata perut melayu, ok aje kalo makan mekdi. Mmm...
While we were there, at one point tu, mak nak ke watson. Saya temanlah. Nak dijadikan cerita, cashier tu bersembang pulak dengan kawan dia yang datang beli barang. Lepas tu entertain pulak customer yang datang lepas kami. Marahla ini orang sebelah saya. And she commented "kalau staff mak, siaplah kena ni". I couldnt bring myself to say anything. I wanted to tambah garam a bit. But another part of me said "mak ni lupa gamaknya dia dah takde staff". Hehe..
Or could she be in denial? Hahahahaha... Najib la niii.... Lambat sangat buat announcement.
Happy birthday mak!! Best wishes & many happy returns :D
As I was browsing my photo album in this phone I realized I did not have much pics of mak. So, hows this picture? Cantekkan mak saya? Hehehehe

"Good for you. What song are you going to sing?"
"Tanya sama pokok"
"Good! Let me hear you sing"
"I dont know"
"What do you mean you dont know?"
"Err.. I cannot remember the song"
"So, how are you going to sing the song tomorrow?"
"Errr.... I'm not so sure"
So, whats the use of technology, ye tak? I turned on youtube on my phone and had Adam listened to the song. And by the time I posted this, Adam is now perfecting his performance.
Way to go Adam!!

Izyan is leaving for Mesir tomorrow. Continuing her studies in medic.
Yesterday, we had a kenduri doa selamat for Izyan's safe journey and the best of her stay.
Insya Allah, we'll see again in 6 years (or next year; if she comes back for hari raya).
All the best Yan. Gonna miss you.
Mmmm... Why am I teary? I guess the "feeling old" is creeping in oredi.. Haha!!

Mama: Adam, I think you have been swimming a lot lately
Adam: I love swimming, Mama. I really enjoy it
Mama: That's fine, sayang. But you always forget to apply the sun block on your skin. Like orang tua, like that
Adam: Eeeiiii... I'm not that old la
Mama: Then.. You always forget. Look at you now. Getting darker already
Adam: I'm not dark, Mama. I'm tanned. Just like Ayah.
Mama: Err.. Yeah! Tanned. Whatever. Make sure you apply sunblock next time.
Obviously Adam has better English vocabularies than I do. Huhu..

Malam Sabtu tu, kami sekeluarga pegi engagement anak Kak An yang sulung, Alya. Meriah juga majlisnya. Anak perempuan sulung. Siap ada kambing golek ha..
Tengah-tengah majlis tu, tetiba perasaan ni macam berbaur-baur pulak. Rasa seronok ada, sayu pun ada. Dah tua ek?
Masa first time jumpa anak-anak Kak An rasa macam kerdilnya diriku ini. Hehe.. Anak-anak Kak An ni, boleh tahan sizenya. Umur pulak tak jauh beza dengan saya. Tu yang bila first time jumpa derang rasa tak puas hati je bila derang panggil "Aunty". Nak-nak si Adieb tu. Kehkehkeh..
Kak An punya kelam kelibut menyiap majlis, sampai terlupa nak amik hantaran dia daripada saya. Agaknya kot nanti time Adam sok macam mana pulak. Uishhh.. Mau berlari-lari tak cukup tanah mama Adam ni nanti.
Eh... Lupa nak perkenal.. Kak An ni mak kawan Adam kat sekolah. Kami ni rapat dari kindergarten. Sampai sekarang pun rapat lagi sebab Adam sekarang satu sekolah dengan Aireil. I was given an honour to do Alya's hantaran. Dua dulung okeh... Ce tengok idung saya.. Kembang kan? Hehehe..
Saturday, September 24, 2011
Tepat pukul 10, tercegatlah kami anak beranak depan TV tu. Tadaaaa..... Muka Atok betul-betul belakang pengacara. Immediately Mak kol. Lepas tu Mak Uteh hantar sms. Adam punyalah excited siap call Che Itam dia. Well... I pun apa kurang. Siap sms to relatives lain. Hahaha...
So, amacam? Femes tak Bapak I? Hahahaha

The food spread was delicious and great except for the satay that was not accompanied with the kuah kacang. Mmm.. Peanut is not allowed in school for health reason. Sigh!
A friend told me her story of hidangan hari raya that she had this year. She was invited for a hari raya do on the 5th day of Syawal and was all excited about it. She was all ready for rendang, lemang, soto and etc, but dissapointed to see only spaghetti and its beef sauce among other kuih raya.
I could share her dissapointment but on the other hand, most people (nowadays) are talking about dieting most of the time and who would eat the oily rendang, the full fat lemang and neither the filling lontong anymore. Correct, right? Furthermore, if you have 3 open houses in a day and if all three serve the same dishes, would you still enjoy your lemang and rendang at the third house? No, right? No matter how delicious the rendang is, you would skip and opt for kerepek in the balang. Kan? Ha... Jangan tipu tau..
Hari raya food are so rich and full filling. I'd opt for more modernized food like satay & catered food myself. Lemang, though it is highly associated with hari raya; is normally out of my list. Nasi impit is a 'yes' as it can be eaten with satay or soto or it can stand alone with its kuah kacang. So i have more options with one dish. Tak gitu?
Anyhow, I enjoyed myself today with 5 sticks of satay, 2 pcs of roti jala, a piece of dodol, a piece of chicken rendang and couple of chocolate cookies. Oh! And 2 glasses of coke.
There goes my diet!!!

Thus today, nothing was irregular except that Alaudin called him back.
"Bye tambi", said Alaudin.
My silent immediate response was "kureng asam punya budak". And to my own surprise, I responded to Adam..
"Adam, do you know that Tambi means brother? Why does Alaudin call you brother?"
Adam was surprised.
"Really mama? Tambi is brother?"
"Yes. That's why you cannot simply call on people unless you know what it means."
"Oh! Actually Umar (another classmate) calls everybody tambi. I dont know why"
And I imagined Umar with the mamak style having roti canai banjir in his left hand and milo ais on the other hand. Haha...
I'm patting my shoulder with this improvement. I know if the same situation happened 5 years ago, I would have shouted to Alaudin.
Good job! Pat! Pat! Pat!

Baru kejap tadi ni, ada tiga orang budak laki-laki datang nak beraya. Ntah mana la datangnya. Saya pulak rasa happy menyambut budak-budak tu. Tapi sebab baru balik keje, x larat pulak nak menghidang makanan, minuman bagai. Bagi duit raya ajelah..
Dulu best ek kalo jalan beraya. Sakan dengan baju raya, kasut raya bagai. Jalan pegi umah jiran-jiran. Masuk umah ntah sapa-sapa.
"Jomlah.. Aku kenal makcik ni".
Sudahnya ntah umah makcik mana kami pegi. Zaman budak-budak. Best betul.
Semalam pegi raya umah makcik, ada tetamu bawak anak dia yang kusyuk dengan iPad dia. Tak kelih kiri kanan langsung. Alahai... Budak-budak zaman sekarang beraya...
Come to think of it, umah jiran tetangga pun tak pegi lagi ni. Bagi kuih raya aje. Haha... Hampehhh.....

Takpelah... Dapatlah jugak sejam lebih sikit dgn kawan-kawan sekolah dulu. Bersyukur la daripada takde langsung. Mujur kenyang makan nasik lemak umah montok. Kalo tak, berlapo la sampai nak ke sudah hal si adam.
Sorryla ye kawan-kawan.... Takde rezeki nak manja2 ngan korang. Ntah bila nak dapat masanya.... Sedeh :(

So, what's next?
1) become a member?
We have thought about it before. We come here only to swim. It'll be a waste? Yes?
2) find alternative activities?
Kids will be watching tv. Made will either reading or surfing internet. I'd be.. mmm... sleeping? Hahaha
3) find alternative pool?
The portable pool we have at home is the size of a baby bath tub. That'll be out of the list. Hehe.. We dont live in a condo, so we do not have "our own pool". Anyone wants to have us every weekend? Hahahaha... Public pool? Can do la kan?
Should we do a make over to the house and have a pool of our own?
Ok. Must do some thinking. Tata

Soon after we reached home, Adam left for sekolah agama with Aireil. Leaving Alesya and myself at home. Alone.
I brought home some works thinking that I have some spare time. As I was sorting the leave application forms, I noticed Alesya was tossing right-left-right-left; restless. I ignored. Then i heard soft sobbings. Alesya's.
I looked at her and my inner feeling told me to put my files away. I looked at her again, and Alesya was smiling in between her sobbings.
I felt so bad that I have ignored her. I'm so sorry my little angel. Mama sorry, ok Asya?
I vow not to bring home works anymore. Well.... I'll try. I should have enough 8 hours to settle my work. All I need is to stay focus on my works & plan my works ahead accordingly. And NO Facebook. Hahaha
adam: mama, i want to be a class monitor
mama: good for you. but why?
adam: because i can take cake of alesya
mama: you're such a good brother, adam
adam: mama, i want to be a teacher
mama: wow! that's good. but why?
adam: i can get alesya to be my class monitor. just like tok ma and ayah. furthermore, i can teach her abacus
mama: oh! ok! good thought..
adam: mama, i think i want to be a headmaster
mama: but i thought u want to be an astronaut? what happen to your other ambitions?
adam: i dont want anymore. because if i become an astronaut, i'll be away for 6 months. who's going to look after alesya then?
mama: **speechless + teary**
loving brother, eh?

tadi kita nak hantar happy mother's day wish kat mak. tapi tangan ni capai handphone peh tu post gamba adam pulak. ada aje alasan kan?
kita nak wish happy mother's day sebab kita jarang-jarang wish mak selamat pagi, assalamualaikum, selamat petang, good nite - sleep tight. tapi bila kita type "happy mak's day" or "selamat hari mak", macam tak best aje....
kita tau kita bukan feveret mak. sebab kita tak besar cam along. kaki kita tak sadak cam alin. tapi kita pandai buat kek. kek kita feveret mak kan?
kita tau kita selalu betah cakap mak. sebab mak pun selalu suka nak menang kalo cakap ngan kita. tapi mak suka talipon kita & bergosip kan mak kan?
kita tau kita kadang2 makan hati apa mak cakap. yelah.. kita kan bukan feveret mak. kita pandai buat kek aje... kita makan kek ajelah mak... penat sudah makan hati ni.... tak sedap pulak tu..
itu hari kan, kita kira gaji baru kita. kita nak bagi kat mak. tapi nanti mak sepah2kan.. kita masuk bank ajelah eh?
itu hari jugakkan, kita tengok kalendar. mak retire tahun ni mak eh? mak nak jaga alesya & adam tak? heheheheh...
kita tak penah cakap, bukan sebab kita tak penah sayang. kita sayang mak. sebab mak selalu buat benda yang kita tak expect. hantar 100 plus pagi2 masa kita demam. beli daging untuk buat rendang dengan kita. kol kita malam2 masa made takde. masakkan asam pedas untuk kita peh tu panggil kita makan sebab tau kita ni pemalas nak masak kat umah.
kita tak penah hantar kad kat mak sebab kita tak rasa kad tu akan luahkan rasa sayang kita kat mak. kita tau mak tau. kita tau mak tau kita sayang mak. macam mak, kita pun tak reti nak tunjuk kita sayang mak. tapi kita tau mak sayang kita. kita tau mak pun tau kita sayang mak.
walau kita tak penah sebut, kita tak penah tulis, kita tak penah luah, kita SAYANG kat mak. kita appreciate apa mak buat kat kita. dari kita kecik, sampai kita besar. dari kita hanya seketul daging sampai dah berketul2 daging dalam badan kita. dari kita hanya kecik senonet, sampai kita dah sebesar2 kita. dari kita baby, sampai kita ada baby.
andai kita selalu susahkan hati mak, kita mintak maaf
andai kita selalu buat mak runsing, kita mintak maaf
andai kita selalu lawan cakap mak, kita mintak maaf
andai kita selau buat mak marah, kita mintak maaf
kita sayang mak, lebih dari org lain sayang mak derang
kita sayang mak, lebih dari apa yg kita boleh tulis dalam kad
kita sayang mak, lebih dari apa yg kita boleh luahkan dalam sms & kata
kita sayang mak, sayang mak, sayang mak, sayang mak.
kita bukan anak kesayangan mak. tapi kita sayangkan mak.
