For the last three nights I have been meaning to go to mom's house , after tarawihlah. But selalunya tertidor lelap lah so tak sempat.
At the dining table Sara's absence was clearly felt by the kids. Johan said "It's funny when Sara is not here." and kept asking when Sara was coming home. Of course this COULD be because she had taken the PSP2 with her . hmmm.
I should write a book about my own five going on their various adventures "Five Gets Up to MIschief" .ala ala enid blytong. Led by the bossy Kaklong, who would be the "thinking-up"per of things to do, bake cakes lah, bake cookies lah, buat spa lah. Sara would also be thinking of things, dancing competition lah- the other day I came home to see them all sprawled writing something very seriously...they were writing to their future selves....and planning to plant all that at my mom's house!Time capsule lah katakan..
Sedih nyeee nak tinggalkan depa nih..Our flight leaves on Hari Raya day itself- although at 11.45 lah. I think I don't want them to come to the airport lah. Allready Dahlia is having teary episodes just talking about sending us off. I think I will buat normal je, call a cab and then say bye as if we were going to work.
We're going to see my brother in Tokyo. Due to husband's work schedule, and his extreme reluctance to get other ppl to cover him more than he should , we are going only during the officially approved hols, ie DURING HARIRAYA . Sigh...and I really really want to take the kids along..at least the younger two but (a) plans are made seriously last minute (visa just submitted today and tickets just bought yesterday) and (b) Japan is very expensive for 2 what more for 7. Of course I have had to make several deals with them to be able to go. We'll do things that kids would just be too bored to do- like go see Fujiyama (Mt fuji). Brother asking me 'do you want to go to Disney?' - waaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!! Wrong place. !
Of course kids would be staying with parents lah....Hubbs' brother has agreed to take kids to see their other set of grandparents but then my parents said they will take the kids as they would be heading that way too. Yah mom but I can't see you spending several nights there. Nanti lah kita discuss dengan lebih mendalam tonight.
I just hope that the webcam works. And also that they would be too occupied to miss us. time flies anyway right..one week will go very fast I'm sure.
