Weekend Update

The first weekend without the girls was quiet. We spent Saturday morning having breakfast in front of the TV, watching AFC while sipping coffee. That is something which we haven’t done in a long, long time!

Usually, Saturday morning will be filled with activities starting from breakfast at one of the mamak restaurants and marketing at the pasar tani. The pasar tani will keep us occupied the whole morning. We never have breakfast at home on Saturdays, so last Saturday was a nice change. It was bread and cheese instead of roti canai and kari.

In the afternoon, I went out to Ampang Point with MrNordin to buy some stuff. We left the boys at home, so it was a relief to be able to browse the shops without having to chase after the little boy, who loves to tag along whenever we go out. He screamed, of course, when he saw us leaving without him, but we left anyway.

We spoke & texted Nadira a couple of times during the weekend. She seemed to be having fun. Her meals have been mostly consisted of Indian food ~ vegetarian, briyani and such, which she loves to eat. Malay food tak banyak, she said, but adalah ulam and sambal.

When I was there, I saw two Chinese stalls selling chicken rice and noodles. The chicken rice was not bad. But my only complain is, the dining hall ada banyak lalat! I don’t understand why. At Nabila’s matrics college in Gopeng dulu pun ada banyak lalat at the cafeteria. It was difficult to eat because you have to compete for space with the flies!

I just hope the students won’t get sick or food poisoning. There must be a rubbish dump or factories nearby. At the hostel tak ada pulak, only at the dining area. Does anyone know why?

Back at home, the two boys have been quarrelling with each other because they only have each other to fight with now. That day, they were fighting over which toys belonged to who.

“Ini baby punya!”

“Ini abang punya!”

“Alah Nadim…..!! Ini baby punya!”

“No!!! Ini abang punya!!!”

Nadim was trying to salvage his headless monsters whereas Nizzar was trying to rescue his limbless Ultramen. I think this is going to be a common feature from now on.

Very early this morning, MrNordin has left for JB. So there’s just 4 of us at home now ~ me, the maid and the two boys. It’s gonna be pretty lonely tonite but I’ll see what I can do to beat the boredom.

Have a nice day!

Mrs N,

It's very funny to read that it's gonna be lonely now that there's only the 4 of us! Dah biasa ramai, 4 seemed lonely! Anyway, with the 2 boys at home, u'll have plenty of noise!

MrsNordin said...

Coming from someone who has lived in a Scandinavian country for 6 years, i find that rather strange. Tapi eloklah macam tu, stay true to yourself. Jangan jadi macam sesetengah perempuan melayu, baru dapat boyfriend mat saleh, dia pulak yang terlebih dari minah saleh yang sebebenornya! Weird!
