TEBBY GOT ME THESE TWO PAIRS OF SHOES
(i was given 3 options - shoes, facial-care range or an external hard-disk).
Originally i had planned to go to Pasar Sungei Besi to stock-up the kitchen. Even our 'must-haves-in-the-kitchen' were finished. We ended up in Tesco Kajang due to the rain. After 2 hours (50% of the time can be discounted without the kids. You know lah, nak kena layan pilih biskut lagi, nak kena let them choose and count the tomatoes lagi. Termasuk jugak nak buat kajian anatomi ikan dan ayam!) and a cartful of groceries, we headed for breakfast in Uncle John Kopitiam. Albeit the price (RM2.50 for a slice of garlic-butter bread. true, the slice was thick but RM2.50?), we had good time splurging ourselves with 1/2 boiled eggs, Kaya & Butter Toast, Garlic Butter Toast and a plate of Mihun Goreng. To wash them all down, I had Ipoh Kopi O, Tebby White Ipoh Kopi while Kakak had Soy Bead. Iman just drank plain water from his bottle - which we later tercicir there.
That was the shopping part. Later, Tebby prepared yummylicious Chicken Tomyam for lunch. I managed to do Beef Stock, Chicken Ball and put them away in freezer. Weekdays mana sempat nak merebus-rebus lama-lamaan kan. That's what I normally do. Pre-prepared. I even have fishes rubbed with salt+turmeric in the freezer. As compared to zaman dulu-dulu, we have really improved where eating-in is concerned. Dah jarang-jarang makan luar except the time yang busy-busy sangat kat ofis. We used to throw away rempah-rempah sebab dah naik hapak. You knowlah how long can spice last kan. That's how terrible it was. Lagipun anak-anak tengah membesar ni, I have to set example on what are 'normal' and what are not. Certainly makan luar everyday is not, kan.
Other than that, we have the usual clearance of laundry. I have mountains to fold and another few bukit to wash and dry. Thank God, at the end of the weekend, every thing was folded and put away in their respective place.
Kunyit (tumeric). Dulu habis daun-daun jadi gondol kena makan dek ulat hijau. Terpaksalah kutip and buang sekor-sekor. Now dah sihat sikit dah.
work has not been easy since my appointment. i rarely have time to berpoya-poya. but i never missed lunch! perhaps, i miss having lunch with Tebby. for some reasons, he always asks me to go with my friends these days. what pisses me off the most is that almost all email come with ASAP. ASAP. ASAP. i can't plan my work. even if i can, i rarely managed to stick to it. i'm giving myself another 2-3 months. oh, maybe a little getaway sometime end August. psttt.. it's our anniversary. if you think it's not appropriate to give me gifts for anniversary, i can also accept birthday present as well. well,.. just to note...
speaking of getaway, i have a few places in mind. semua local lah.. kakak did suggested Disneyland. OMG! then only you can go Kakak. the rest can't afford. i am thinking of Langkawi, Cameron Highland, Bukit Merah. And believe it or not, Mines Wonderland yang kat belakang rumah kami tu pun masuk list. and believe it or not, this is going to be Iman's 1st family holiday. last we went for one was in 2004. Iman was just a 5 months baby. foetus, to be exact. they had good time. notice i did not include 'me'. they had fun in splashing around in the water and i had to just sit and looked. maklumlah, makyong kan time tu.
ok peeps, have a good week ahead.
2nd Aug 2007
down with swimming headache. finally i got sometime off on my own, doing nothing back home. tebby was late so i fetched the kids myself from Atfal. the journey was like 4-5km to-fro but to this mokcik, that was something. hey,... do applause for her.
