I'm Back!


Arrived home just after midnight. Tired.

Despite telling ourselves that this trip would solely be for the purpose of relaxing and NO shopping, we broke the rule. Day 2 was spent at Plaza Senayan ~ shopping like nobody's business!

MrNordin got 2 pairs of shoes , a new pair of sunglasses (it was dirt cheap, ok, for Boss), many Polo working shirts, and a new shaver. I also bought myself a new pair of sunglasses (I just bought one in KL before going, but I don't care!), a new pair of spectacles (they made it so fast, and cheap!), and several bling-bling bracelets. Plus t-shirts for the kids, we ended up stuffing our luggage with the new purchases. Nasib muat!

At the end of the day, we were zonked out and decided not to go to JCC. Dah tak larat lah! So, we went back to the hotel and stayed in to watch the Malaysian Election's results which was shown on MediaCorp news. It was shocking to learn that BN was defeated in 5 states. How could we lose Selangor...? MrN was on the line with his brother every 10 mins to get an update on the results. We wish we were back in Malaysia that night...

At around 11pm, we got hungry. We hailed a cab and asked the guy to take us to Garuda Restoran at Jalan Sabang for Nasi Padang. Yummy!

Day 3 was spent lazing around at the hotel. I had a massage at the hotel's spa. Ok lah, about RM100 for a 1-hour massage (slightly cheaper than here). My friend V*rdi and his family came over to visit around noon.

After checking out, we went back to Plaza Senayan to collect some stuff and had lunch before leaving to the airport. I tried the Mee Kocok Bandung. Sedaap...! Kinda like mee soto, with lots of taugeh. MrN had Nasi Pecal. Also sedap, he said.

When we got home, the kids were still awake except for the little boy, who was already asleep. I was a bit disappointed. But as I opened the door to my room, I saw him sitting up on the bed. "Ma ma!" he said, half-asleep & smiling. Yeah... dia bangun! It's so nice to see him again! I've missed him so much! Played with him for a bit before he dozed off to bed again.

What a lovely end to a beautiful holiday...

Hi Kmar,

Honeymoon? Hmm... tak de lah pulak rasa macam tu. But it was nice to get away from the kids for a while, and just enjoy each other's company.

Actually, my husband is a better shopper than me. Pantang tinggal kan dia sorang kat shopping mall, sure dia akan beli something which he doesn't really need but beli anyway, coz it's nice.

Hi MrsNordin,

This is the first trip sans children, ok. Make sure that you do this at least once a year...good for the marriage.

Thanks for posting the pic of Verdi and family. His kids have grown up now. Btw, Fianda dah bukak tudung ke? (Kaypoh I ni..)

Sorry G, entah apa2 I tulis. What I meant to say was:

"... didn't know she wore tudung before.."
