God the Pain- Women only

Had a gynae procedure done just now, ie IUCD. It is blooody painful. WHy is vasectomy haram?? Why do I have to have MY cervix pinched? And why is it that someone thinks its ok to drop me at the office?

Anyway...thanks Hubby for coming with me, holding my hand , not disowning me while I screamed, and dropping me at the office even though I have an MC......

(actually have to go in as have to send some documents)

Wednesday ramblings

Gaji oh gaji...mengapa kah lambat sangat nak masuk..Why cant we get paid weekly? I'm feeling the pinch since we decided to stop using all forms of credit card whatsoever.Yesterday had Inagiku with Saiful..thanks Pol! My brother is a riot. Did I tell you that I used to hate his guts?? I used to fight with him all the time, and when he went off to Terendak I was the happiest girl ever. And whenever parents went over to visit him I would actually get upset! It was no secret that he was the favourite of the 2 of us when we were younger. He never argued back when he was scolded by mom, unlike me who would sulk for the entire day. Actually Sara, my 2nd daughter, is his clone ok. She is so pathetically eager to please me when I tell her off.
I think Saiful and I got along when I left for UK. So moral of the story, send kids away if you want them to get along ha ha ha..or maybe there is some truth in that.

Husband has expressed his hitherto unknown wish for his children to go to Uppingham for their 6th Forms. Helloooo satu tahun some 40,000 POUND sterling kot.But I don't mind, if we can afford it. So, primary and secondary, sekolah agama, then, upper sixth form, terus UK..waaah terkejut beruk nanti.

I do not want any of my daughters to go to boarding school until they are at least 15. Imagine Harry Porter style where 11 year olds are sent to school. Actually here pun, form 1tu kan barely 13 year olds...But for those who enjoyed their upbringing there memang seronok bangat lar....they have friends, routine, and masa tak terbuang..But I am very upset that Dahlia and Sophia has left my side to go into their own room , apa lagi if they go to boarding school...

And talking of these 2 girls, they dragged us into their room yesterday and listed out their wish list. which includes a fridge. What the heck do you want a fridge for, Daya and Sophia? Mummy pun takda fridge in the room. Apparently they want to be able to snack etc without going downstairs. precisely the reason why this fridge shall never be..I don't want them isolated in their rooms. As it is pun Nadine and Sara are always in their room yakking away. Apa yang banyak nak cerita tu? Its kind of ironic. mummmy loves to talk so created 4 girls to chat to. Ha ha ha..Boy will get his own room tu, I will decorate the office into his room (ie the annex to our bedroom) ..I will miss them though...I do miss them. Occassionally I get Nadine to give a biiig hug. Oh yes she has complained of pains in her chest...waaaa puberty signs allready?? GOD, she is only 10. Not fair..can I have my baby back?? I told her no more meleset with your uncles or with your dad even, not manis....and now have towatch decorum and jaga diri...

The world is a funny place..today ada talk on sexual harrasment (at least no more Siti discussion) and some men called in to say that women dresses sexily ie own fault. Then women called back to slam the men. Aiya..this is my view ok. Men, just because a woman is semi naked, nampak pusat etc , please curb your basic urges and tell yourself that she is not really inviting you to molest her. Women, please understand that men will get the basic urges, and just like you would close your gate of your expensive (or biasa) house , please take similar precaution with yourself in dressing.....you do have the right to dress however you like, but please use the brain god denied the men, and be defensive. You also have the right to dangle the handbag, or wear loads of gold chains, or even not put in grills or locks on your house. When the pencuri or snatch thief come , rasalah bahananye.

Uncle Rahman

Uncle Rahman is going through surgery today for his hernia. Actually I believe he wants to keep this very quiet but Husband has asked me to war war kan to all relatives, and please go over to visit him . Husband will personally do the op, although I have advised him to pass over to colleague, ye lah takut gementar or nervous...Dahlah subuh pun tersalah baca ...I think he is anxious. BUT! My husband is a goooood surgeon, master of his craft ...he he he (marketing namanye ni)

Good Luck Uncle Rahman, I'll pop over soon.

Merdeka - what it means to you???

This is a snippet I saw in the Sun this morning. By the way we left very early and had breakfast at the 4th floor of my office...half boiled eggs and him, nasi lemak.I was told yesterday that our cousin, KakNgah is now very very thin having lost her weight by not eating dinner. Ye ke?? So now Husband and I going to do the same. But on the other hand this girl is young she can lose so much easier.

Ok before I go into that self absorbed mode again, there were 3 ppl giving their views on what Merdeka mean to them. Which got me thinking about Merdeka.

It's not that hard to appreciate what Merdeka is. If you are a student living overseas, or if you are a doctor living and working overseas, just imagine, that that is it for you. There is no where to go "home" to. Imagine that there is no Malaysia and UK/Ireland/Japan etc , IS your home. Speaking from years of living abroad, and having 3 of 5 kids there, and husband being part of the NHS and working system there...let me tell you it was not always a nice feeling, being in another country and feeling like an outsider. You always always, no matter how nice everyone is to you, feel like an outsider. And you know you are not as good as the locals. I think nowadays, looking at the increasing number of british rioters or "terrorists" (If the press is to be believed) then even the "locals" don't feel they are as good as the local locals. Really, after a while, you long to go somewhere where you know you belong. We came home when Nadine started to use toilet paper instead of water in the loo.. when I realise that if we stayed on we'd be depriving our 2 daughters (by then) of all the small stuff that makes being home...there was no pasang pelita tradition for Raya, there definitely was no duit raya. there was no padang buai yang you can play without having to worry about 3 layers of coats first.(Now got to worry about mosquitoes je).There was no pasar malam. There was no daylong mengaji if someone important pass away. There was no Ustaz coming to the house. There was no OPah, Atok, Atok Buntat, Atok Zah, Atok Mas, Opah NIta, Atok Teh etc etc etc..

We decided to come home when Husband's next job was going to last 6 years. It was the make or break time. If we had stayed, Nadine would be 10 by the time we come home (ie NOW lah) ...So, i think the ppl overseas even if they don't tell you, or they don't know it themselves, feel everyday what it is like to be colonised and know very well what Merdeka feels like. We had our merdeka when we came back. It felt so good to be home. (I do miss a lot of things though..Jaffa Cakes, Salt and Vinegar crisps. Crisps in general. CBBC. Eastenders. Daily Mail. Sales. Council Library. Taking a bus and the busdriver calling you "luv". Driving through breathtakingly beautiful Cotswold. Laughing at the puny stony beaches that they have. going to Sainsbury and coming home with change. (I'm broke everytime i go grocery shopping here). I don't mind going there, but I'm glad I can come home.)

Mind you, I don't think the ppl in parliament know the meaning of Merdeka. If they do then they would not waste their time in parliament meetings to discuss how divorced women are "gatal" or throw chairs at each other ! Ha ha ha! And TV pun takda publicise merdeka. The snippets of Tunku going Merdeka Merdeka Merdeka does not do anything unless its accompanied by background story. More on Siti than the Merdeka really.

So to me, Merdeka means being free...and having somewhere you belong to.

Quiet Day

At the office...the deal that saw me playing despatch, clerk and typist all in one last week seems to be finally over...and today I had time to surf the net ...baca pasal Siti kawin

Kids are definitely bored back home...Astro is on the blink? Funny I just paid the bill and I don't think it was raining.

Last weekend was a family weekend for us. We painted the house, as mentioned earlier, with the 5 kids sharing 2 rollers. Don't la look too closely at the quality of the wall ok, but suffice to say that all the drawings are gone. I kept falling asleep , after painting a bit of wall, terlelap.. bila bangun the kids and the dad had gone..it turned out that they walked all the way to the park (ok about 10 mins je)..I can't picture it, my HUbby with 5 .sure orang ingat dia duda..eh. jangan nanti ada minah minah pandang, ala ala Siti ..ha ha ha ha

Spoke to Nivi this weekend..mentioned to her that I want to stop working soon so I can concentrate on the kids but somehow with the changing world maybe I should not lose this security. She said something very sensible. I can't sacrifice my time with the kids just because I'm worried that my husband will play around. Betol gak...ha ha ha

I am worried about the values in KL...the values which , my friend was shocked to discover when she returned home to Mumbai, that the 2 cities share....ppl are more shallow, tengok je lah SIti kawin, lavish lavish. But biar le..rezeki dia....

Went to a wedding on Sunday. My opah sedara's daughter- mommy's cousin. Masa tulah baru nak jumpa all my aunties yang laaaaaaama tak jumpa...teruknye I ni!Yang bestnye semua live so close by.

Kids are adorable yesterday. Sophia and Dahlia has taken Guest's bedroom and plastered their names over the door. I should be glad right. Then last nite Sophia came over to see me in the middle of the nite and instead of hugging her and asking her to go back to her room, I told her to sleep with me. She said, Nadine said we can't sleep with you anymore coz we're big. Awwww..my babies are big. Anyway I told her she can if she wants to. so she spent the nite with us. Dahlia still come over everynite. NO wonder I never feel like I have slept...my nights are interrupted.

Asked hubby whether he wants no 6. Sophia said we must have him, he's called Ahmad Hakim. Or , Muhammad Hakim, when I pointed out that Johan is a Muhammad. Dah ada nama. macam just waiting to arrive je. Should I? Should we? 5 is enough right? Anyway could be a Helena instead. (one last name that I tak sempat nak bagi)

My colleague at work who is trying for a child, said "some people have to STOP themselves getting pregnant"...kesian.. I take it for granted je.

Well. chances are probably our family is complete....now is the time to watch them grow...what the heck am I doing here then??

Byeeeeeeeee.....

Takziah kepada Kak Noriah and Family....

We heard the saddest news on Saturday that Abang Jeman, Hubby's cousin's (on dad's side) husband, had passed on at 6 p.m that day...Hubby was JUST asking him to go to hospital the Sunday before, and he had refused , wanting to wait for schoolholidays to start before coming to KL. As soon as he arrived in KL, and as soon as he arrived at his sis in law's place, he collapsed and passed on, just like that. Hubby (and all of us, maid included and if you count the paw prints, cats included) was painting the house that day , and only later discovered that he had 14 missed calls, all from the family.

We both felt very very bad..this was a vibrant , 50 year old ex army, whose concerns for his family, wife, and daughter sitting for UPSR, overrode the concerns about own health. Men, please, dont be macho...go and get that check up...go and get that thing checked....apa nak takut.. I told Hubby there was no guarantee that if he had come back with us on Monday, he would have made it...Hubby felt extra bad as he had made all the arrangements and 2 consultants at 2 different hospitals are waiting to see this man. Ini lah nak katakan ....ajal.. Hubby rushed to the apartment, after making some calls about getting a private ambulance- RM1000 ok, from KL to Kluang. Mencekik darah. Nasib baik lah, in the end he went home with army transportation. Hubby said family subdued and calm..I think its shock and more worried about the procedures , ie police reports, burial tomorrow. I could not sleep at all that nite!

To Kak N, and kids, tabahkan diri...I can't imagine losing Hubby when kids are still in school and very much need the father...how do you go on, although I don't doubt that we can indeed go on. I am now harrassing Hubby to go get medical check up. For a consultant he has no idea what HIS cholesterol level is...tsk tsk tsk.

This really make you appreciate your loved ones....tell him/her/them that you love them...sekian terimakasih...

Kids

Dahlia is showing signs of becoming a very good accountant. She has been asking us for this and that lately, and because we have come back so late we just nodded our head. Well, today, kena bambu by her. She called me at work and said "Mummy! you said you will buy me water colour, you said you will buy me glue, you said you will pay my school for the chocolate factory trip..BUT YOU WERE LYING! Hmmph..."

Then shortly after that, she called again and said "Is this Pizza Hut Special Delivery??" and then Jojo and Dahlia cracked up. This must be because their daddy likes to answer their calls with "The number you are calling is driving and cannot talk..toooooooottttt". Daddy is such a big kid with them.

Nadine is going through her exams now. Sara and Sophia just finished theirs last week. Results are trickling in..Sara is still poor in her BM..sigh..What to do now? I need a one to one tutor ke? I allready have a 3 to 1 tutor...if I send Sara to regimented tuition she will be even more lost. She is only 8 ...I dont want her to go for tuition for marks, but I want her to understand text and enjoy the language.

Maths pun careless. Ada ke 9-6 is 15. That was sophia by the way. Still in the 90s lah but you'd have thought its 100% for standard 1 maths.

Oh well, I guess they will sort themselves out soon...The driver over at my new firm has 4 kids , 3 of whom are in University. I dont mind if my daughters are not lawyers/doctors . As long as they are someone beneficial to the society and respected by society ! Kekadang respect means being less than financially healthy. But kadang kadang financially healthy means emotionally unhealthy. So camne...

Ok..next blog entah biler.....

Pearls

I am officially a Pearl queen.

Zu bila nak pass Iji's email address so that I can pay/beg for a discount for these lovely 2 string Sabahan fresh water pearls ni (wah drum up business sat)...Anyways kat Lot 10 sini ada bazaar and now selling lots of pink pearls etc ..

Actually if husband go over to the Other Side, will I still like pearl or will I indulge in that other lovely stone...DIAMOND???

He he he..!

Shah the Japanese Karaoke Champion

...is what I would like to say here but kesian dia, the songs he wanted to sing hari tu kat RedBox banyak takda. And the frustrating thing was , a lot of the nice songs were "MV" ie no lyrics ..ie music videos onlieee..

Aida, Amy, Amily, Aizad , Me and Shah, Azril and new shortskirted girlfriend, were all there 2 nites ago, entertaining my brother...and shok sendiri. Unlike the karaoke at StarTV the mics here are so crap so that you think you sound sooo sedap walhal its sooo tak. He he he...

Hope Shah enjoyed himself...sorry lah along tak lepas control tu ...maap terlupa diri jap....

the Weekend we went back to Kluang

Below is a report which I did (offline) on our weekend in Kluang....sorry panjang sikit

Waking up was so difficult today. Wished can take MC. But I needed to sort out some agreements, and Husband had a heavy clinic. Nadine woke us up, all ready, to ask her daddy to send her to school. Straight after that, Husband came back at quarter to 8 to resume sleep- never before done! I was snoring away right up to quarter to 9!!!! Reached the office at half past nine!

It was a tiring weekend- on Friday, despite our best intentions to leave KL for Kluang early, we finally made it out around 11pm. The delay was caused because we had to run a few errands first…. sent the maid home lah (sent her to my mom’s at least she can help out, but mom sent Maid to maid’s uncle’s house the next day), had to isi minyak lah …etc ..then stopped to buy all sort of junks to keep the kids happy- then stopped again to go to the toilet lah..finally reached Air Keroh around one in the morning..which was the final stop for mummy to go to the loo. On coming out, caught daddy snoring while waiting for mummy. Mummy decided to drive .Daddy in his machoness, initially refused, but let me drive “to the next stop only”. In the end I DROVE ALL THE WAY TO KLUANG, wokay. He he he.. Wah terror or what. First time driving all the way to Kluang and some more, driving through thick fog. Visibility was reduced to 20 metres in some of the places…Perasan in UK kejap…of course, some kiasu Singaporean drivers insisted on speeding despite the fog ..! Actually I ni takda lah berani sangat…everytime take over lori kena bismillah dulu he he he…..

Finally arrived around 3 am (ye lah slow lah driving sebab fog) and was greeted by Mom in Law (MIL) who insisted that we (have a wild guess what she wanted us to do at 3 am?) have dinner/early breakfast …Under the excuse of having to put the kids to sleep, I went straight to bed. I think Husband ate and sat to chat with his parents. Its been a while since we came home for no reason, ie to see them . Just for the record it was my idea although if you ask Husband he is convinced he thought of it himself – now that’s a skill, ok he he he….

Anyways….Saturday had a long lie in (ie after subuh still sleeping ) in the front room which was usually reserved for Sis In Law (woi! Best wacakaplu….! He he he) Kids went to sleep in the other room which we always occupy. That was the theory lar …in the morning, all the kids, save for the eldest, are in our room! So now we had TWO ROOMS to clean up!

Nice leisurely morning cooking breakfast, and using long forgotten skills of er..stirring the food in the pan ha ha ha….and then chatting with in laws. My parents in laws are the coolest ever. Can talk about anything. Ada gossip tergempar mengenai masyarakat di situ dan wang…tapi my DIL agreed not to take further action…..dont prey prey with my DIL ok…he is very berani in menegakkan keadilan ok…

Later in the morning, kids wanted to see pics of their dad when he was young, so out came the old family albums. (Minah Songeh, our husbands were so handsome when they were younger! (ok, ,much handsomer than now lar) )

Although, I noticed, mine was such a poser..Sikit sikit posing …letak tangan bawah dagulah, pandang jauh lah…with his specs hitam ke ..lens hitam?? All of them, broody look…cehwah..nasib baik I didn’t meet him then sure I would have thought what a perasan guy this person is he he he..It looked like Epa was closer to the siblings than my Husband, (since my husband was busy posing kan haa ha ha) but that’s in the pix lar…There were pictures of them and their cousins masa Raya. wah it was obvious that they had so much fun growing up..Atok look the same and Mak Long looks ….GARANG! The effect is muted now lah..he he he he…Uncle Fuad looking so strong,. Uncle Yaya , looking almost like Dato K he he he…and Uncle Mail –tak banyak berubah. An, Noni, Izreen , Izhar, Izan (dah bini orang daaa), Niza and Lin (so slim lah you!)

Then there were various pics of Husband’s family going on a family holidays- they look like us as we are now, man. With abah holding botol susu Ati (yes the one getting married this December) and Faiz posing with his friends…(Faiz had this trademark grin and in all the pictures looked so likable! Nak jadi bapak orang dah kau ek) . One picture had MIL surrounded in the water by her children, and one picture had Nor crying . Ada satu lagi picture kelakar with Paiz macam nak nangis and Nor bulat mata nak tahan nangis he he ..apahal lah tu agaknye…? My MIL is the true superwoman as she looked like she was having fun also and not suffering or being harassed!

Then there were also the pictures that we sent to them from the UK..alamak look so young….thanks to “Facercise” book of my sister in law, I now can tell you precisely what has changed with us to make us look that much older ….Husband has jowls now, and a pounch…..my nose looks bigger, eyelids are drooping a bit… and I have definitely gained 10 kg, hair is thinner, and basically everything is not as per 10 years ago lar…Waaaaaa…I looked so nice before (eh wah perasan), and can I please have that hairstyle again?? There is this picture of me with Nadine , standing next to a very slim, no specs Zu..(Zu, you looked so good without glasses) By the way did you realise that Camelia is clone of Nor when she was smaller?????

Hmm on the hair, I had a fringe, and I think, despite all the hairdressers telling me not to grow a fringe, I will insist on it.

Then we went to see Abang Jeman who is unwell. He has heart failure and is quite breathless when we saw him. Tu dia I have just broadcast his situation to everyone. You all pretend lah you don’t know ok if you see him…..He is summoned to GH by virtue of the Doc Husband and his faithful assistant ie moi (im sure abang Jeman pun nyampah – I yang ask so many questions). Ye lah Husband tau black and white je…you come to hospital now or else. It was so weird that while we were at their house, MedikTV was on, showing a surgery on breast cancer and breast removal…eeeyuck is that what my husband do ke…..

Then off to the most important thing of all….visit anak Majan!! We arrived at his inlaws’ place and Majan had already prepared 2 tupperware full of keropok..yesss he knows his nieces well. All attacked first Uncle M, then the keropok . Majan very sportingly layaned them. His parents in law were there too.

Fahim is absolutely beautiful…when we arrived he was nursing. Lamanye…last last habis but he refused to open his eyes!! Kacau lah kot mana, he will not open his eyes , ada lah kerut kerut annoyed when we touched his nose, tickled his eyebrows etc but for a short while only. We were informed that Mr Fahim Boss likes to sleep during the day and then wake up at 12 until 2 am.. demanding that his parents play with him. Hmm maybe his dad likes to sleep during the day too? Hmmm…if babies follow fathers then the babies will either be very bookish, or going to sleep during meals, or will disappear without telling the mommies etc etc he he he.

Just before we outstayed our welcome we left for MIL’s place. DIL had been gardening the entire day and had cleared the patch in front of the house for the khemah to go. Ati is getting a fancy khemah this time. Husband bought 15 durians for RM10 so we ate that for dinner – and then semua terduduk kenyang.Johan pun hantu durian rupanye… Kids were happy with Astro and lets play explore Nenek’s house. Nenek had a lot of UPSR books to give away – some ada nama budak lain lar..Nenek tak bagi balik ke buku Nenek??

The presence of monster mossies were a successful deterrent to staying outside too long. Now Nadine looks like she has chicken pox. I need to find a lotion/cream to reduce the marks. At night we watched Tiada Rahsia and MIL and DIL and I kutuk Siti Nurhaliza together…thanks Siti he he…

Next morning I woke up at NINE ok…sumpah tak guna punye menantu…just could not believe how tired I was….I guess because the entire night was peppered by various kids coming in from the other room. Breakfast was mihoon goreng . Soon after we had to leave for Rembau. Cousin of dad was getting married. We left but not before re-stocking the DVD at the local DVD store. Then at 1.30 pm,realised that I had left my glasses at MIL’s so back we went. MIL was having lunch and she said she was just thinking how hungry her son must be, and how he should have eaten lunch before he left ..tu lah dia , power or not, a mother’s thoughts….in the end Husband did have lunch at his home before we left finally for Rembau……

Rembau at 3. Wedding dah habis but people were still outside….went over to the house (next to my late grandparent’s house) , who are the descendants of my grandmom’s sister. All the sisters have houses next to each other, in one row. The grandmothers may have gone, but the children remain…and it’s my intention /aim to get everyone’s name down for future reference. I don’t want my kids to not know their cousins…as it turned out Sophia is in the same class as one of my cousin’s sons! Izad’s grandmother’s grandmother, is Sophia’s grandfather’s mom’s sister. (Get it?)
Ie. My grandma’s sister, is this child’s great grandmother.

I met up with Dani and his brothers. When we were small, apparently we hated each other. Everytime we meet the parents would tell us that. I remember one period of my life when everytime I came home for Raya the 4 boys would too, so all the Sudin-Jeliah branch of the family and their branch of the families would just jalan to the surrounding houses, which anyway are our relatives. In fact everyone I saw at my kampong, was my relative somehow. What a thought! Nowadays Raya would just be us congregating in one house. Or else visiting own mom’s house and then MIL’s house. I would like to do the “tour” again, but not sure who else remains in the kampong.

Dani’s dad was very close to my father and my uncles. He recently passed away after being doused by hot oil…..Anyway Dani is now a married man with 3 kids, and his brother Razlan (who really liked my friend R) is a married man with also 3 kids. At one time Dani rapat gak dengan I- this was at the time when he was doing ITM and I was doing A Levels nearby , and being my “nephew” (pangkat lah) he came over quite often. IN addition he was the school mate of MinahSongeh! Was he a gangster at MRSM, Zu?? He did write a few times when I left for UK but then we lost touch. When we met at the wedding they were still as mean to me as ever. Hmph. Ada ke dia kata I takda Astro tu yang banyak anak ..cis.I met the wives and kids- very nice people.

Dani and his brother Rithaudeen are my neighbours here it seems! Coincidence or what! What is even more incredible is that Rithaudeen’s son and Sophia are actually classmates!

We did not stay long in the kampong…all the uncles were working…mowing lawn , going over to the kebun, and generally lamenting the fact that the new generation are not so rajin in helping them…who said, my Johan was having a fun time raking leaves etc. The pool is emerald green in colour! Husband would help but we had to rush off, had to go get Minah etc …We had a hot shower before we left though, which was a good thing as the kids all went straight to bed when we arrived, at 9 p.m!

Hence me waking up on Monday morning ….with a deep desire to go back to sleep….

stressssssssssssss

How does one deal with stress? I would like to tell you I am cool under stress, but unfortunately I am not. I have just gotten off the phone with the most nitpicking people . I told them that this issue is no longer legal, its commercial. Just tell me and I'll write what you want. BENGANG.

The other day this lady was stressed out because her spouse didnt pick up her calls from 4 onwards and this lady was left wondering what time is he coming to get her ni, and then decided to cabut to his work place at around 7, only to discover , getting off the cab at the place where he parks their car, that, when she got to the car, her keys are not in her bag (he has taken them) and then she sat down to wait for him for another hour, at the parking place, outside on the curb, in front of the flats, until it was dark, and all the time getting "you have reached voice mail of xxxx" when she tried to call. Slowly burning (slowly??) she decided to hail another cab straight home. He called at around NINE pm from teh office, asking her where she is. This, dear men everywhere, is a BIG BOO BOO. First, answer your calls, and secondly, never keep a lady waiting. The excuse was lost track of time. Ye ke...jangan jangan dating or what?

Well. thought about sulking, or at least not talking but that will be ikut hati. To maintain harmony, decided to forgive, but reminded this spouse that this is a major boo boo which cannnot be rectified by a sorry. OR even a very sorry.

Thinking of selling this car, and getting another car, which I will use . Problem cannot trade in car, value very very low. Anyone wants a 5 year old Serena for RM58 k?

On the projek pengswastaan, the PC hospital has called the Husband's boss and showed him around, and on that basis they are very excited and confident that they will get the job. I dont have any comments. The hospital looks very very impressive though.Why are the lights on every nite by the way? There is no one there..!

Ok ..still here at 7.04 pm.

Welcome back Shah

My brother from Japan is back . I have yet to see him,though.Other cousins have seen him but own sister has yet to! Would have gone to see him last nite but heard he went out to dinner with other cousins. What to do, in demand...

Complaint of lack of attention to spouse. This may be a bit private to be posted here? But gist of the matter is that spouse has been very very busy this last week. Even when he's with me, he'd be answering phone calls. So trying to make time to have dinner/tea together. Yesterday i said would you like to go for a drink tomorrow? and he said yes. And then I said, now can you ask me the same question. He laughed but he did it anyways- so I can tell you, he has asked me out. Ha ha ha...pathetic ke? Its very important to keep romance alive.

Kids are normal- demam dah reda. I bought Nadine a lovely teddy bear necklace and showed it to the others, telling them its a secret. Yesterday morning I got a call from Dahlia saying "mooooommmm, jojo has told nadine that her birthday present is a teddy bear necklace" And I heard her telling all sorts of lies to Nadine about the necklace ha ha

Dahlia is the financial controller or general controller of the family. The other nite I was on the way back home, and I was talking to each and every one of them. Dahlia was busy watching tv and didnt want to talk to me. Then I was telling Jojo that im going to have dinner with Daddy. JOjo immediately announced to everyone "Daddy is taking mummy to dinner!" The next instant, Dahlia came on the phone, and said "Is it true that daddy is taking you to dinner??" Ha ha ha..

Work...sigh what can i say. Semalam I was faxing stuff . Faxing stuff i tell you. See how action I am. I am moaning because I had to worry about faxing to 5 numbers. Er, isnt this the clerk's job? Chewah...kill me now I am too big for my head. ha ha ha...

Was interviewed by AstroRia the otherday- probably wont go in the tv since it was so crap. It was about medical check ups, ie when did I last have one. I had lunch with my ex colleagues semalam and I was telling them this and they said I should have said, "My husband is a doctor, I get checked up every nite" ha ha ha ha

ok ok ok bye bye

Demam at home

2 down with fever . Sara and Johan. Must be going around, heard their cousins pun demam. SOphia and Dahlia has followed dad to dentist . Sophia wants to go to clinic private and told daddy not to take her to the government one. But sorry dear. Just hope dad doesn't leave them by themselves, no matter how much he trusts his nurses!

Semalam played futsal again. I was so not fit. Plus these girls are pro ok, know how to dribble ball etc. whereas I would only kick membuta. Badan sakit..hips rasa macam nak tanggal....kids all came. Actually didnt think I was going because did not bring my kit, then told hubby I want to go watch, then he told me he was going home to get my kit..wah so nice..why is he being so nice? he he he

Weekend very hectic. Or was it? Or was it because I was maidless for the weekend? Dad and mom informed us of the taksirah at Uncle A's house. We thought we'd skip it and went to do other things. Then on the way back we just decided to take the route that passes the Uncle's house. This was because of my sudden desire to see Mindef camp where I spent about 3 years of my life .. I showed them the sports hall, (very very badly need maintenance) and wanted to drive through the camp but the guard (the ARMED) guard, said no, and anyway the roads have changed. Oh well. It was really nice because I have always had ample space to play around the house, biji saga forms a BIG part of my childhood, and here we are raising our kids in itti bitty houses. Ok exaggeration.

So there I was driving along, then suddenly very near Uncle A's house, then I said, eh dont lah go near if you dont intend to singgah. Then my husband said no, their house follows the other road. Guess what, he was wrong. We ended smack in front of the Uncle's house, and 2 aunties saw us so ALL of us went down and pretended that we wanted to singgah all along he he he.Bukan apa, tak dress up, thats why...but nice to meet all my uncles and aunties and also my cousins who live in Jeddah (they are back for 3 weeks-don't speak a word of english or malay)

ok at work now, better go off....tara...

I played Futsal

Last MOnday, I had a futsal game. I played he he..A from ex firm organised a girls only game ..12 of us turned up. I was sweating like a pig. All the girls mainmacam girls lah, except for a couple of pro who was very aggressive. I dont know how to tackle. I thought it was a bit rude to tackle he he ...had a chance to be goalie and let one in...aisay..

husband watched. he was quite proud, telling everyone "Im watching my wife play futsal". Courts next to us were also girls. Takda screaming sangat - probably dah selalu main...

Serious tak fit!!! Thought I was going to die at one time, heart was beating SO fast.

Best!!!

Izreen and Izan, how are you btw??

Dim Sum at Starhill

My auntie, jokingly or otherwise, asked me to belanja her dimsum at Starhill. Off I went to the bank to withdraw a small treasure, anticipating that this lunch is going to cost me arm and leg. Auntie made me wait 1 hour, and I told her that I was going off as I had a meeting at half 2. She arrived at half 2. How can I leave her as she is allready there?? Auntie is married to Somebody and maybe forgot how the little people live- you know, the one running the risk of getting fired if late. As it was I heard boss was frantically looking for me. However I used to stay with her in the UK and therefore was close to her (more like little sister). Her Husband, is absolutely scary ok. ha ha ha. He's not Somebody for no reason...! Anyway Dimsum is pleasantly not as expensive as I thought, with 4 items coming up to 50 bucks. So now Im walking around with that treasure of mine ha ha ha. Auntie has 6 kids (7, but 1 passed away) so is actually my inspiration ha ha ..When I went over to the UK, as I mentioned I stayed with her,she just had a baby and I was chief baby sitter. In my mind I helped a lot but I was probably useless. Ha ha ha..But her way of raising Baby, was very casual and I kinda followed that way..ie Baby slept in bed with us etc.

Oklah can recommend dimsum at Starhill- i had barbecued ayam pau, prawn fried with almods (yum), steamed prawns and some other dish. Poor Auntie, I rushed her like mad. He he he...apa nak buat kita kuli....he he he
