Biler tengok timeline kengkawan during Hari Raya Aidiladha hari tuh mostly ada yang buat korban, bawak anak2 gi tgk penyembelihan. Meriah! Kitowang lak cuma balik kampung yang 5 minutes away tuhhh hehe. Since there wasn't much to do we just took photos of ourselves. (except gambar Qeeb).
We also visited my parent's pusara at Cheras.
Then balik SA and tapau some glorious food cooked by K.Lipah.
So you guys ada yang overdose makan daging? The only recipe i can think of are sup daging, kari daging, etc
Few days before my Compulsory Leave i made a to-do list. A long list. Some items were small, like ‘get a haircut’ or 'buang sampah'. Other items were bigger such as ‘filings’ or ‘spring cleaning’. My cita2 was sooo sky high sampai cuti pon kene susun jadual so that i did not forget to run important/ silly errands yang tak boleh nak buat during office hour.
I love to strike through each item on my to-do list once i completed the task. It's a nice feeling heheh. But i also felt like there aren’t enough hours in a day! The first 3 days involved outdoor activities since it was a school holiday. The remaining 2 days were for me to catch up my own stuff. Between grocery shopping, banks stuff, house cleaning, rearranged stuff where it should be around the house...I felt wonderful! But as the day rushed by, I hit a wall of exhaustion. When i looked back my to do list, ada lagik a few yang tak accomplish. Terus rasa stressed out and miserable because i only have one more day to settle everything.
End up on the last day cuti tuh, sumer benda i did halfway and half-heartedly. Because when I’m tired I’m such a grump. And who has to bear my meltdowns? Poor Jeeb heheh. But at least I got the important things done. Self-note for next time, schedule less because rushing is not effective and make room for downtime. But then rasa wasted pulak if tak maximize cuti right?
We found out about Food Mega from the bunting yang begantung2 around our area. What bugged us most was that square thing at the end of MEGA. Plus, I read it as Food Game at first.
We parked at Tesco sebab nak beli barang kat situ later. Then we walked towards the Stadium car park. Time tuh dah petang takde lah crowded sangat. But at average each booth ada laa dalam 5-10 people beratuq.
Some of the stalls. Sonot tengok orang meniaga makan nie yang come up with creative names, presentation etc.
Nampak cam menarik jer Dragon's breath nie. Memang buat orang tertarik nak beli.
Suasana di food mega
Qeeb's started tarik muka donald duck because i didn't listened to him. He said he wanted to watch the performing band. But i said kejap2 (sbb nak amik gambar) and tetiba jer singer tuh cakap sekiannnn babai. Mengamok laaa budak tuh sbb dah abes performance huhu! I felt soooo bad and guilty.
We continued ronda the place dengan Qeeb yang tantrum. He said dia nak pegi lagik the following day sebab nak tgk performance. Dalam hati mintak2 laaa dia luper besok.
Cukup satu bulatan kami pon pulang. Pulang tanpa sejinjit plastik bag pon hahaha. Overall the event looked ok...the layout, the cleanliness. Cuma tempat duduk lah nampak limited sket.
A few days before Hari Merdeka hari tuh, dapat memo from Qeeb's school ada event pakaian beragam. So that weekend sempat laa pegi carik bendera Malaysia yang mostly dah sold out kat kedai2. Baru tingat nak pegi the old art store kat seksyen 3. Sebaik ada...kalo tak i gave up nak carik lagik tempat lain.
Malam tuh gigih siapkan. Sebaik Jeeb managed to finish all the air kat dalam bottle sonang kejer. Bukak pinterest and kejer2 menampal bermula. Front view.
The boys modelled their costume. Qeeb actually forgot his helmet dalam bag. Dah abes catwalk baru cikgu prasan and texted me. So dari depan nampak cam pakai uniform cadet polis instead of astronaut. Blasah jelahhh sonot2 join.
All the kids yang participated the pakaian beragam event.
Zafeer's hair since he was born tak pernah kene shaved. Huhu takde plan lagik nak buat aqiqah cukur jambul. Rambut dah makin panjang...biler peloh masyamphhh hehe. Sooo potong jelah dolu kat kedai. He was sleepy when we brought him to barber shop.
Senyap jer time kene shaved tuh. Blur lagik kot. But towards the end tuh dia dah irritated.
Tadaaa! Shaved sudaaaa
Time letak powder Zafeer started to cry. Isokay baby, dah slamat shaved sudaaaa.
Yang dapat upah lollipop was Qeeb wpon mangsa potong rambut was Zafeer.
Alhamdulillah our country dah 59 tahun merdeka. During merdeka’s eve ari tuh we enjoyed 8 minutes of fireworks right from our balcony and just wearing pj’s. Takde pokok or other buildings yang block, just a clear view of everything. It was really nice because that was our first experience since staying there. The finale tuh yang cun but i already stopped taking shots because i thought cam samaaaa jer sumer hahaha.
Naqeeb asked me a question the following morning “Bila kita nak merdeka?”. I dont know how to answer it! Really! At that time he can relates merdeka with flag, fireworks and cuti. But how I’m gonna explain the whole thing about peace & war, patriotism? Sounds to heavy plak, dalam kepala dok carik ada ker orang dok share some sort of simple video/ animation about what is independence day celebration is all about? Again tgh hari tuh dia tanya lagi “Bila kita anak merdeka?” omg ok Qeeb, i think i know what you were trying to do! let’s merdeka ourselves from the house and go somewhere. To the park sounds sans money.
We had a short walk keliling the park area. Jeeb let Qeeb pushed the stroller *cough*. After one round i just wanted to sit hahaha. Sebaik memang ada tikar lipat dalam keta.
Who said going to the park no need to spend money again?! I paid RM5 for the bubbles and managed to convinced Qeeb that he did not need drinks other than the air kosong that i brought. RM5 for a few minutes of me-time and enjoyed watching him running around carefree.
Si Zafeer sempat gak pekene susu 2 das and nap kat situ.
We discovered that Zafeer geli rumput! Lepas bagi dia try2 pegang tuh dia trus refused to pegang dah. Biler crawl pon kat edge tikar jer hahaha.
Itulahhh citer merdeka kami ^.^ Doa ku smoga Malaysia aman & damai for my kids to live in.
