Cap ayam

Pagi tadi Abg Tatmi nak sahur roti. So, he asked bibik to get him something in order for him to make sandwich. She passed him ketchup and chili sauce.

Lepas tu bibik cakap,

Eh bibik lupa nak letak ayam.

Abg Tatmi tanya,

Ayam yang mana, bibik?

She replied,

Ayam yg letak ditengah-tengahnya…

So, all of us membayangkan chicken slice yang ada dalam fridge tu. But she didn’t open the fridge tho. She went straight to the kitchen and get something in a bowl.

Ini ayamnya, she said.

Abg Tatmi cakap,

Eh, bibik ini bukan ayam… Ini tuna. Ikan.

Bibik cakap

Lohh… kenapa bekasnya ada ayam? She went to the kitchen to show us the can.
Nah, ini. Sambil tunjuk kepala ayam.

All of us were laughing away!

Bibik itu cap nya. Cap Ayam Brands, sebab tu ada kepala ayam. Isinya ikan, bibik… Bukan ayam.

HAHA!

Cap Ayam!

Cap Ayam!

A hole inside my heart

MIL went for an op last week.
An operation that removed her tyroid.
Semua anak Mok balik, to be there for her on her op day.
Mok jenis orang yang susah nak sakit-sakit melarat sampai kena hantar ke hospital.
Beranakkan 9 orang anak, cuma 2 orang yang terakhir je dia pegi beranak kat hospital. Itu pun kejap sangat di hospital.

So, she never actually experience sakit yang kena duduk hospital lama.

The op went well, Alhamdulillah.
Cuma recovery Mok makan masa sikit.
Hanya boleh minum susu melalui tube, every now and then had to do suction of her phlegm, she had some difficulties in breathing too.

Seeing her for the first time kat hospital, rasa sebak pulak. Tapi takdelah nak nangis depan dia. Mok yang selalu bercakap bercerita, bila tengok dia sakit dan tak dapat cakap (sebab removal of thyroid just so close to the voice box, we are suspecting something is not right to Mok’s vocal cord) sedihnya lahaiii…

As I’m writing this Mok still in the hospital and doctor still not sure when is she fit to go home. At least, she able to breathe properly.

Semoga Mok cepat sembuh.

Bawak Umar & Khadijah pegi hospital tengok Tok diorang, Khadijah macam a bit concern. Kadang-kadang dia takut. Takut tengok leher Tok yang kena tebuk. Umar ada tulis untuk Tok. Lupa pula nak snap picture. Nantilah kita up kat stegeram.

Actually tengah teringat kat rumah Penang. Dah tatau nak tulis apa, cerita lah sikit pasal Mok.
Membayangkan cemanalah tiga beranak tu menempuh bulan puasa nanti sebenarnya :(
Rasa macam nak mintak kat boss nak kerja from Penang je sebulan puasa ni.

Ya Allah, permudahlah segala urusan kami.

 

An empty street, an empty house
A hole inside my heart
I’m all alone, the rooms are getting smaller.

I wonder how, I wonder why,
I wonder where they are
The days we had, the songs we sang together, oh, yeah.

And all my love, I’m holding on forever
Reaching for the love that seems so far

So I say a little prayer
And hope my dreams will take me there
Where the skies are blue to see you once again, my love.
Over seas from coast to coast
To find the place I love the most
Where the fields are green to see you once again, my love.

I try to read, I go to work
I’m laughing with my friends
But I can’t stop to keep myself from thinking, oh, no.

-My love, Westlife-

 

On the go

Kehidupan sekarang requires us to be on the go at any time.
Last week, I myself went to Miri for 2 nights from Sunday till Tuesday.
Lepas tu Friday lepas office terus gerak ke Kuantan.
Saturday balik semula Shah Alam (without the kids! :( ), and husband continue his journey back to Penang on Sunday evening.

Penat.
But that’s how we roll now.

For a time being.

Tapi takdelah tiap minggu macam ni.
Mau patah pinggang kalau tiap minggu camni.
This week (tomorrow actually) MIL will go for an op, sebab tu caca merba sikit kiteorg ni & husband had to be in Perlis.
Malas nak fikir panjang, we settled for the option tinggalkan Khadijah kat Umi Adik which is in Kuantan and Umar following Kak Lia back to KT.

We are so successfully meiosis into 4!
Sedih. Sedih bila fikir pasal anak-anak.

Tapi bila tengok gambar & dengar cerita on their updates, rasa macam tak percaya anak sendiri pandai bawak diri.
They are so grown-up now. Rasa macam baby baby lagi.

Tak sabar pulak nak duduk sama-sama.
Ayuhlah bersungguh cari rumah (ataupun cari kerja lain, balik Penang!) area Shah Alam!

Dah ganti puasa?

I have another 7 days to ganti, insyaAllah.
My #misigantipuasa kalini sangat panjang sebab membawa yang bertahun lepas due to breastfeed Khadijah dan lepas tu period cycle gone haywire. Merasalah ganti puasa berpuluh hari.

Time puasa ni satu jelah tak tahannya, mengantuk.

And there’s nothing much you can do in the office during lunch time.
Nak surf the net pun so many websites being blocked. So, duduk diam-diam buat kerja jelah.
Or I’ll watch video. Video bebudak tu kat phone. Hehe.
Kalau rindu, tu jelah penawarnya.

So many things went thru my mind at the moment.
Nak stay closer to the family but there will be no layback kinda of life or go back to your peaceful place, doing the same thing all over again but you’re apart from the family.

Take your pick.

Susah.

Tatau nak decide mana.
Fikir mak bapak, MIL.
Fikir anak-anak.
Fikir suami.

Ya Allah, permudahkan urusan ini.
Sesungguhnya kami hanya mampu merancang, Kau jua penentu segala.

My 10mins break from work is up.
Till the next entry.
Bye!

Makan garam banyak, tapi tak semestinya betul

Ada setengah orang… Walau dah beribu kali lalu roundabout, tapi masih lagi tak tahu rules of roundabout… Tolonglah jangan mengaku “saya dah berpuluh tahun bawak kereta, saya tahu peraturannya!”

We’ve been “attacked” by an old furious pakcik last Sunday. Just bcos husband didn’t stop while he was in the roundabout. I may sound a bit rude, sorry for that! but I called that pakcik a road bully when he honk back at us & yelling at us when husband honked at him. We were almost hitting each other bcos that pakcik didn’t bother to stop when he was trying to enter the roundabout. It doesn’t end there tho, no. He followed us!!

Ingat tak rule of roundabout masa belajar keta dulu? Yang dalam roundabout wasn’t supposed to stop, if u missed the exit just make another one round. Car that coming into the roundabout that suppose to stop and when it is safe to enter the roundabout then do so. Please, please correct me if I’m wrong!

So, that pakcik followed us. Masa tu macam tak percaya weh kena follow. Berdoa agar pakcik tu berlalu pergi. But he didn’t. When cars stop, he went down and yelling at my husband. My husband went down and trying to explain to him. But he kept on and on saying that he was in front of us and we supposed to stop, he was old man and he know how to drive. Adalah kot dalam 5minit kejadian tu. Last sekali pakcik tu agaknya tak puas hati kot, dia cakap, “kalau awak nak pukul saya pukul laaahhh!” 

2 men came and said to my husband, “sudahlah, bang. Biarlah pakcik ni… masuk je keta”

Muka husband merah padam tahan marah. Kesian pulak tengok dia kena marah.
Nasib lah memang selalu kene provoke dengan orang, so boleh lagilah handle pakcik tu. Kalau tak, rasanya berlawan gak situ.

Lesson learn is sebelum memulakan perjalanan bacalah ayat kursi dan doa supaya Allah permudahkan perjalanan walau destinasi yang di tuju adalah sekentut dari rumah.

 

 

 

p/s: Rugi. Rugi tak amik video, kalau tak mesti viral :P

Missing the kids

It’s the 4th week already.
Cepat betul.

Bebudak kat Penang tu lepas sorang, sorang demam.
Last Monday was Khadijah and today, Umar pulak.
I feel like I want to fly back home now :(

Bersabarlah, anak-anak…
Bertabahlah, ayah.
Mommy is coming back tomorrow, insyaAllah.

Speaking of going back, tak beli satu tiket pun lagi ni.
Initial plan is to drive. Tapi, plan itu macam tak executable je… Makanya, kena lah cari plan kedua.

Work started to pile up.
Which of course sukalah. Takdelah nak sanggap kat ofis, kan?

I hope I can coop.

 

Baru sehari

Husb and ze kids went back to Penang last night and here I am missing them like crazy tapi tak boleh nangis! :(

Next week haruslah balik Penang kann…
Rindduuuu.
Selama 5 hari start kerja ni pun, kat office asyik teringat-ingat je bebudak tu.

Kadang-kadang rasa macam made a wrong decision; that I shouldn’t be here, I should be at home taking care of them.

But we never know anything until we try. Perhaps this is the best for me, for now.

And perhaps, by being far from family makes me appreciate them more when they are round. I never imagine that we have to go thru this cycle again. Never. It was tough when we both had to be apart for 1.5 years after we got married. And a lot more tougher now bcos we have 2 kids on tow that doesn’t understand much why they had to be apart from their mom.

Oh hang in there, Aida!

My lovely new team mate said, “I tengok you kental je. You ok ke ni?”
Rasa nak nangis masa tu jugak.

 

 

Blisters feet

Day 4.
And I wish that I can just berkaki ayam ke sana ke mari. Kaki sangat sakit at the mo. Blisters everywhere. Dah pakai heel gel tu pun, still sakit. Padahal ni bukanlah kasut baru.
Cepatlah dapat ID, cepatlah dapat locker so that I can keep my pumps inside there and wear walking shoes to work.
Lantaklah walau tak matchy with kurung or skirt. Yang penting kaki daku tak sakit. Hehe.

I attended 2 meetings yesterday at 2 different locations.
Today Im just going to spend my day reading some documentations and meet up my ex-uni mates during lunch later. Yay!

Jom sambung baca docs sampai muntah darah :p
