honeymoon's over!

honeymoon's over! the kids are back.

Went balik kampung after work on Friday, stopped for dinner of nasi bubur in Kg Baru (I can't even remember the last time we ate there, probably Iman wasn't even born yet). then proceeded with full stomach to Temerloh. With speed that could caused us summons, sampai kat kampung approximately in an hour (do your own calculation). The kids jumped about while screaming the hearts out at the sight of us. That's what I like about children. They're sincere and they show it. After bath and prayer, we slept hugging the kids tightly, albeit Iman's rather smelly head from sweat.

Saturday was spent hovering over my recipe book. We did Nasi Daging for my family. This time around we used tulang. Boiled with ginger for aproximately 2 hours, the dish was even better than last time when we used all meat. The accompaniment was solely daging goreng. Thinly sliced and fried with bawang besar and bawang putih. And tadi pulak we left the kids meraung-raung while we shopped for sotong. It was raining. Even if it was not, bringing the kids would not be a good idea. One will ask too much while the other will be touching, grabbing, or even throwing things about.

We left at about 5p.m. Atok, Wan and Mokkucu were obviously sad (a phonecall later confirmed that, they were all so sunyi, they say). Reached KL in 2 hours. It was drizzling and the road slippery. PLUS, banyak kereta. Alhamdulillah, we came back safely. After Maghrib mdh went to clinic as he develops mild allergy while I did a round of laundry, swept the floor and tidied the kitchen. Oh, back in my kampung, the water heater was faulty, washing machine broke down (i have blisters on my fingers due to manually washed kain baju) and the fan refused to change speed even when the dial was rotated.

I foresee busy weekends until Jan2007. Next week 24th Dec, InsyaAllah, we'll be following mdh's uncle for kenduri bertunang his eldest son. The following week will see us going east for Aidil Adha. In between, I have reports to submit and that will keep me busy throughout.

That would be all for tonight. I need to press clothes for tomorrow.

Nasi daging? Ilish would be drooling if he reads about this! dia suka sangat daging (and I noticed also if I go back to Kelantan pun they preferred daging more).. boleh laa try recipe Ummi when my MIL datang next time around :P hee
By the way--tak terperasan pulak Ummi kat TH.. kalau tak sure dah tegur :) Ummi nak daftar gi haji ke? jeng jeng (saya lak just keluarkan savings hehe)

mardhiah12 ~ go girl. i know you can do it. insyaAllah, Allah permudahkan kalau niat kita baik.

ilsa ~ try lah. senang je sebenarnya. all these while ingatkan resepi nasi2 ni susah. we planned to cook it time raya haji kat tgg nanti. pi TH tu nak masukkan duit raya budak2 tu. ternampak kelibat safurah. ingatkan nak tegur after selesai urusan kat kaunter. tup2 lepas tu, toleh2 dah takde.
ps: you have a lovely home. cantiklah.. jeles kite.

K Tie, keluar topic sat....CINTA tu mmg best. My bro yg tak tgk malay movie pun ckp cerita tu best. It's different from Dato' Y.H. malay movie (u know who). And the pelakon-pelakon mmg best. Cuma ada few scenes tu mcm lawak bodoh sikit, but overall it's ok :) (I should claim some promo fee from them eh :p?)

mcatz ~ i think my husband benchmark malay movies ikut YH tu kot. the very the typical of YH la kan. camne ek? tengok sorang2? beli cd? cam kena beli cd je lah kot..
