empty nest

we are so missing the kids! came back to an empty house at approximately 10p.m. last night. yep, we went back balik kampung as planned and left the kids to enjoy themselves wrapping their grannies and mokkucu around their little fingers. while we drove away in silent to KL (not forgetting to mention mdh's silent tears as we sped through), Iman had fun jumping about on mokkucu's bed and kakak got my mom to fry her egg and fish for an early dinner, which is not normal within my family circle as we, most of the time, have dinner after berita time. (and that is my side of the family. my husband's usually eat before 9p.m.)

anyway. kakak is one melodrama girl. she accused us (sort of) will have fun without her around. this was her script over breakfast.
'haa... suka hati lah tu. kakak takde nanti. bolehlah tengok berita ke, cerita abah ke, apa ke' (we have this arrangement where she can only watch channel 61-64 while we're busy tidying-up or preparing dinner after work, afterwhich she has to surrender the black-box to us for so-called 'cerita abah' or 'cerita ummi')

when it was parting time yesterday, her eyes were a bit teary. she hugged me tightly, saying she was saaaaaddddd to let me go. actually I've asked her many-many times if she wanted to change her mind and follow us back but berkali-kali jugak she insisted on staying. she said she'll miss me but she would want to spend the week with atok and wan and mokkucu. then she raised her hands and drew a big heart in the air with 'i love you'. awwwww..... she can be so awfully sweetttt at times, isn't she? she told us not to worry as, in case she misses us, she'll look at our faces in the photos. Iman was indifferent tho he seemed to be sensing something was going on. but that was before my mom offered to bring them to visit opah (my aunt).


we'll be going back to fetch them this coming Friday. in the meantime maybe we should go out, just the two of us and have sometime for ourselves. you know, eat out, frolic about and do nothing in specific. we're supposed to be honeymooning, aren't we?

me, from her perspective.
see that tick-boxes on the left? they are for my doings. i got only one box with 'x' (that's for not taking good care of the pokok bunga we have). therefore, with only one 'x', I was given a long necklace with a big star pendant. this, sent me over the moon. a little gesture from a little girl that means so very much to me.

mama_singa ~ mmg kami train dia spy boleh tinggal dengan atok n wan. kot2 kena outstation ke apa, senang sikit. plus, kalau diorang dah besar sikit, kalau atok and wan sakit, boleh diorang teman-temankan.
