What a hectic, hectic weekend (well, when they even weren’t?) 🙂
Cik Ani picked me up at the office and we braved that preposterous Friday-downpour-Jln Sultan Ismail-traffic for a get-together with Mat Bel*ng at the Curve (she better be nice to me or I will play the wicked bestfriend card to one Mat Bel*ng). Initial plan was to hang out at Kenny but it was fully booked. Amidst the last minute everyplace-including-Marche-were-booked-not-that-we-want-to-eat-at-Marche-anyways, we were lucky that Mat Bel*ng quickly got a ray of light in his head *ting!idea* and booked a place for 3 at Secret Recipe.
Note: Well, how’s Mat Bel*ng? He’s definitely boyfriend’s material but definitely not my material. Naaah, too nice. I kept bullying him the first time we met but I’ll root for them for sure. And don’t even asked me how we came about calling him with that nick 🙂
Moving on, we made a pit-stop at D’sara Homes to meet my not-so-secret-Secret-Admire who generously gave me two paperbags full of Famous Amos goodies and Raya cookies. I love you hun! (In a friendliest kinda way, you know that) and later they dropped me at D’sara Perdana for my second Iftar that day.
Yes, I am very well -known for my ridiculous eating habit. You can stop making that faces now.
There they were, BJ gang, by the pool at Panjang’s house in Perdana Xclusive Condo (he got mad whenever we mistakenly said apartment). It was supposed to be a pot-luck gathering, but since everybody arrived kinda late, they decided to order pizza je. We lepak, laughed and continue hanging out at Panjang’s apartment condo unit watching Meet The Spartan DVD and scoffed down the Famous Amos cookies I got just now *sorry dear, I can’t say no to those monsters* Siap Nani boleh terdoze-off on his hubby’s lap lagi – but the good news we received from her that she’s 2-months carrying! We called it a night around 12 and Liza send me home safe and sound.

Pagi-pagi lagi aunties called and ask us to go balik kampung (pre-Raya?) to have a buka puasa get-together. Luckily it’s just Negeri Sembilan, if it’s in Kelantan, I would say no in a flash 🙂
Made our way to kampung, dropped at Nilai, mum bought the new alas meja, 2 more baju kurungs for her and tudungs. She insisted on me buying Baju Raya (really, I don’t know why this year I really not in a mood to get a new Baju Raya) but as to make her stop nagging, I closed me eyes and just bought one. Plain white. Why? Don’t ask. I just feel like wearing white this year like never before.
Arrived at kampung noon-ish and start preparing the feast. Uncles prepared the ayam panggang outside and we ladies kemas the house, look after the kids, masak sayur, prepare the drinks whatnot. I tell you, feel macam dah Raya. After, we (me and the kiddies) played outside (read: jambatan sudah runtuh, pepsi-cola, baling selipar, kejar-kejar, musical chair, pukul berapa nenek harimau) and after burning a calorie or two, said our goodbyes, me and mum made our way to Serdang around 9-ish.
Oh yeah, todays’ the day that I got good news that I didn’t flunk the IE*TS paper. Alhamdulillah.
I really2 want to lazy around, sleep until 6.30pm and wake up just in time for buka puasa but it seemed like an impossible idea coz there were million things to do! I’m the assigned bibik in the house, so I have to take care of practically everything : Bekas kuih raya, have to detach, wash, jemur, angkat and pasang balik the curtain, kemas rumah, basuh toilet, jemur kain, vacuum lantai, and other little things.
After that mak ajak pegi Jusco pulak bought the groceries and shopped for dad and brothers.
We were flat dead that mum and me decided just to order McD for buka. There you have it. My hectic, hectic weekend which I would relive in a heartbeat coz amidst the kepenatan I endured, spending time with families are beyond doubt = priceless (minus the bickering me and mum had all the time tho)
I may puasa penuh this year (I know, I have another 2 days before I could brag) but kudos to me in advance. Jangan jeles – thanks to the uncertain p*riod cycle of mine. Hehe.
Whew. Been one particularly long entry. Last but not least peeps ~~~
