I want to delete my earlier post lah.
It makes me sound so ...deranged. Heh.
All I wanted to do upon arriving home last night (2 seconds after hubbs) was to sleep. I even told him to take a cab although I had originally convinced him otherwise. I had thought to take the kids to send him all together-gether to the airport but then the kids reminded me that we have yet to buy presents or stuff for the big feast tomorrow . So you naik teksi je lah ye bah. He said- I memang plan pun! My wife je yang klingon ni heee (ok I added that part)
About 8.30 we all left for Jay&aJus&co ..I was thinking to get the teachers cute cactus and apparently they sell it there. I dragged the maid (she was NOT pleased, citing ironing, but hey) and off we went ..My god Jaya*jusco was having a sale and there were a lOT of people. I was telling the kids to hold hands and walk together so much that you'd think we were in a military operation or in a REALLY DANGEROUS place.
NO cactus. What to get then?
Kids were very helpful in their suggestions. Johan said teacher Shahidah said she wants baju kurung, or bag. I'm SURE she didn't say that , Johan. Sophia kept pointing to all the big brand names for shirts etc that Ustaz this or that can wear. Uh-huh not going to happen, girl. Sorang can lah. I asked them who do you want to give pressies to- the answer- SEMUA. SO kira kira semuanye ada TIGA PULUH EMPAT cikgu. 34? That many? Are you sure? Did you count them first? Any overlap? Johan, cannot kira teachers that WILL teach you ok, no fair.
We found this purse store selling kinda nice wallets and purses at reasonable prices. reasonable but when you buy TWENTY ..takpalah, this is to thank the teachers for teaching my kids right...(teaching them to realise the value of shopping is what Im sure was not on the syllabus heheh) ...Now i look at them, sure cikgu ingat pasar malam pulak. Can i give the receipt to prove otherwise? hehehehe...
Mummy dah sakit kepala and wants to go home, so whatever lah ok. I bought the wallet/purse/handbags/cosmetic bags, refused Johan's request for a bling bling silver necklace with a big W ala-ala Mr T, for his beloved Teacher Wanida- hallo, makcik tu pakai jubah oi, I cannot see her with some dangling long silver chain Johan although that is so sweet of you. The tokey kedai present me one free bag. Haha (ok I mintak. Loudly. In front of others. Plus my kids were touching all the other stuff)
Then off we went to get for the Ustaz pulak. Managed to get some paperweights which are quite nice. Ada 7 je ustaz. (hmm kira kira that's only 27- what happened to the other 7 teachers?)
Then we went to get grocery for lasagna. Menu daripada jajan and drinks now include sausage in a roll , lasagna, and johan said he wants to bring the sandwich that we always give him in the morning before he goes to school, because his friend AbdulHaq likes them. How does he know JOhan? Because he is the one eating the sandwich every morning. HAAA??? Kantoi Johan..rupanye engkau tak makan...pass kat orang. Then the girls also confessed that the food I force them to bring to eat in the van, gets eaten by other kids! Oh well as long as they're not wasted I guess.
I was just smsing hubby about the present etc when he called. eh , dah sampai ke, I thought. He said I have good news.. or bad news. What?
"I will be coming home tonight. I missed the flight. "
Wakakakakakahhhh ...anyways I thought yay daddy can make lasagna!
He's going again this morning lepas subuh. So nice to have him back. I am finishing up some work (and blogging) and kids have got to wake up in an hour to finish wrapping their presents and make their sandwich!
