Mumsie rasa nak bergolek golek ketawa...komedi terbaik mengalahkan los dan faun!!! siap rasa macam nak jalani hukuman mati lah konon...oh puhleeeeasssse!!!
tapi siang tadi Mumsie terdiam. SOmeone was telling me about his boss who has taken long leave to take care of her ailing husband. So I go and say..."see...pompuan siap amik leave nak jaga husband...if situation is reversed, would the husband the same?" that someone said...what about erema yang mintak cerai from seri bayu tu???
alamak...how? but me thinking...Mr bangkai sure happy Mumsie kena tanya that question!

Well...my take on Twilight? Okkkeeyyyyy laaaaaaa...must admit that i didn't know what to expect coz I have not read any of Stephanie Meyers' books (tries to get a copy kat MPH Alamanda but its sold out!) I thought citer vampire bunuh bunuh orang and the love story is only the sub plot. Rupanya, the love story is the main theme! sweet story that develops as time goes. eventually it did make me go aawwwwwww.....especially the part where Edward Cullen took Bella to his house and up a tree overlooking this MAGNIFICIENT view...oh..and the part where Edward went to Bella's house and they talked until Bella fell asleep...aaaaawwwwwwww....
my take on Edward Cullen...first impression was not great. Me wondering apa yang hensem sangat mamat ni? too pale and too much gel in his hair! but the lipstick they put on him was of a great shade! wonder what they call that colour?! but must admit...as the love story proceeds, he becomes sexier and sexier...not the sex kind of sexy but like yummylicious kind of sexy...soooooo brooody and sexy! hhhmmmmm...mumsie rasa macam a teenager all over again! i just love the way he "protects" the girl...sooo the romantic and deeeeep!
hmmm...i think i'll get k.ngah to put up a poster of him in her room ...

Jangan saspen...Mumsie had a VERY nice day semalam, albeit a super buzzy one! I bangun early enough. Woke K.Ngah and asked her whether she wants to go for a hair wash or to the bookshop in Amcorp Mall. K.Long was at Mok Teh's place so, it was just me and Ngah. She preferred the bookshop so off we went. Jauh gak laaa Amcorp Mall from Putrajaya rupanya campur ngan minor traffic jam here and there.
We spent quite a while pilih-pilih buku. I think many people know of this bookshop which sell books farrr cheaper than the normal bookshops. Mumsie was looking for Stephanie Myers. Wanted to know what the hype about her is all about. But unfortunately the shop does not have any. yet, apparently. But I don't think i can wait so, Mumsie need to make a trip to MPH soon. I ended with books by Dean Koontz and Du Mercier. they cost me RM9.90 each when other bookstores would easily charge me at least RM45 for each! K.ngah also enjoyed herself choosing books and reading some whilst Mumsie went about picking some books for sarah and soraya.
Mak Su came to join us for breakfast/lunch at this place called Seri Melaka. Food, ok-ok jer but dessert - Sago Gula Melaka was da bomb!!
Then, Mumsie thought...alang-alang ada kat PJ must make full use of the time so i got MakSu to take us to the DigiMall kat Section 14. Pegi beli CDs. We bought quite a bit - Greys Anatomy Season 5, Desperate Housewives Season 5, CSI Season 8, Friends Seasons 1-10, and about 8 movies! best, best! then alang-alang kat situ Mumsie pi shopping for portable CD player for my triple-e PC and a wireless mouse. Pastu, on our way out, teringat Abah has agreed to get K.Ngah an MP3/4 for her birthday. A quick call to Abah to confirm budget and we started looking for one. So, K.Ngah dah dapat lah birthday present dia...a red samsung MP4 ....muccchhhhhh to K.Long's dengki-ness!!
On the way back, Abah call kata he's taken half the day off and dia dah beli tiket to watch Antoo Fighter kat GSC Alamanda. Canteeekkkkkkk...so at 4.45 we went beramai-ramai, with the girls and 4 of their cousins. Have you guys heard of this movie? Its a local product - the latest fantasy movie starring Awie as Drakulat and Radhi OAG as Poh Jee the hero. it was good, i must say. Worth supporting. The jokes are funny and the actors can act!
We didn't think the movie would be very long but it was. Almost 2 hours. We went home at about 7pm and had to rush to pray and get ready to go watch Sinbad, the Kiddies Musical in Istana Budaya. Sent the cousins home and off we went. Nasib baik no traffic jam and the show started on time. Another pat on the back for our local entertainment industry. The Musical was very entertaining. Starred by about 80 kids and Raja Azura as the lone adult acting as Dewi Bencana. She was hilarious! Mumsie bought the cheapest tickets (RM20 each) and we found ourselves on the FRONT row! Mula-mula rasa tak selesa but it turns out that it was a blessing coz there was parts in the musical where there were interaction with the audience so, boleh la kitorang jerit lebih2! And there were part when the actors were right in our face! Anyways, the girls enjoyed themselves and so did Mumsie, Abah and MakSU. Seronok tengok the children. They are so talented! and cute!
We sampai rumah almost midnite. Ingat nak tengok movie on PC tapi tengok-tengok...i need to install something dulu baru leh pakai the portable CD player. hwwuaaaaaaa....so download gambar jer laaa. went to bed thinking it was a weekend but woke up this morning, upset upon realising it is only Thursday...i have to wear batik and go to work....siggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

All that, of course is well in the past. Kat Malaysia, kami selalu tengok wayang. It's affordable and best of all, the nearest panggung is a mere 5 minutes away from home - GSC Alamanda! So, whenever we decide to go for movies, Mumsie will buy the tickets awal2, then go home for dinner and pick up the rest. We will go to the cinema in time to buy popcorn before the movie starts.We'll park the car illegally (alhamdullillaaahhh so far belum kena saman lagi!) right outside the cinema so all is hunky dory. Convenient giler! There were times when the gang even split into 2. Abah and kakak2 pegi tengok citer hantu. Me, sarah and Soraya pi tengok citer bukan hantu. Or me and the girls go watch girly movies, abah go see boy/manly (?) movies!
BUt of course, GSC Alamanda tu kecik jer. So, there were times when the movie we wanted to see is not showing kat situ. tapi tak der hal. there is TGV the Mines or the IOI Mall or the Sunway Pyramid or Midvalley which is 15, 20 minutes away from Putrajaya. Ni lah antara nekmat nya duduk kat malaysia ni...
actually, when i started writing this, i wanted to write reviews about the movies we've been seeing. Tapi sekarang dah ala-ala malas lah pulak! but okey...here's a brief review as to what i think about some of the movies we've been watching of late -
Mamma Mia - Best ever. I want to see it again and again tapi now only showing kat Midvalley at 5 pm. rather an inconvenient time. So, am waiting for the CD version. tak kira lah ori ke pirated!
High School Musical 3 - Boooring (sorry Tipa!)! I fell asleep in the middle of it! tak der jalan cerita..unlike the 1st (and the best of HSM, in my view)and 2nd one. lagu2 pun tak best.
Madagascar Return 2 Africa - Funny nak mampos! Especially King Julian! Long live the King!
Igor - we saw this last nite. Funny gak laaa...good enough to entertain the girls.
I have not read nor heard any good reviews about the latest Bond movie so macam tak de rasa terpanggil to watch that. But am looking forward to go see some local products - Antoo fighter..los and faun...will write about them kalau Mumsie rajin ye.
OKlah..Mumsie gotta go do homework. Ciao dulu. You guys be good now...i like to move it move it.....

2. for Pak LAh...for all his weakness he does not deserve the disrespect of the people around him. Kita ni ada adab tapi Mumsie rasa orang-orang yang gila kuasa out there dah lupa (ye lah..Melayu mudah lupa!).
3. for Tun M. Kesian for the fact that he kept choosing to yak and yak and yak! apalaaaa yang dia tak puas hati lagi tu?? betul ke dia sayang sangat Malaysia ni?? betul ke dia sayang sangat kat bangsa melayu ni? somehow...mumsie yang tak berapa tahu pasal politik ni doubts that, somehow.
4. for Mumsie. I wish to go for Hajj tapi hajat ni belum kesampaian.
5. That model and his pregnant wife who got the boot from sehati berdnasa. But seriously...the pregnant wife should not be made to make the moves that she make. tak senonoh nampaknya! So, although I feel sorry for them, i'm also glad!
6. of course, last but not least, for abby abadi although i know she's one strong lady that does not need the pity of another. hehehe...

On the home front, its the school holidays, as you know. So the girls are at home 24-7!! But Oklah..they've been entertaining each other. Tu lah nikmatnya anak ramai, i suppose. tak delah diorang lonely duduk rumah. We've been trying with the entertainment bit. One Saturday we took them to Cosmo World. The indoor theme park in Berjaya Times Square. Last Wednesday we took them to see Madagascar. And on Friday Abah took them back to Melaka. They came back with 2 cousins. So, we now have 9 girls in the house and Abah is the lone boy...siannnn dia! hehe..last weekend we went to stay kat Marriot Putrajaya where the girls spend allllll the time in the pool!
As you know, MUmsie dah ada maid. hopefully for the next 2 years. So, nowadays Mumsie sangat bahagia..come home to a clean house, and especially to a clean kitchen where I spend time cooking nowadays! So much so that the girls are claiming they're bored eating home cooked meals! ada ker?? tak syukur, kan? My laundry baskets pun are only filled with clean laundry nowadays. So...i really pray that she will stay for the full term of her contract, at least!
Oklah...tu jer..boring update on the going ons in my life. Sebenarnya tak der mood nak menulis sebenarnyer....

2. sooo the malas nak pack for this Lumut trip! You see...the place I work in is organizing this Special Project kat Lumut. Nak gi tolong orang susah kat situ...Management says kononnya nak bring us back to our roots sebab ramai orang kaya kat Division we all tu yang dah lupa asal usul apparently. Sapalah orang2 tu gamaknya? Anyvays...will post on that another day...sementara menolong orang kampung tu, we'll be staying at Damai Laut Resort. That, i loike!!
3. still rooting for Abby Abadi! hehe...kita pompuan must stick together! I say to h***lll to Norman Hakim!
Oklah..gotta go fetch the dry cleanings...later!
Wednesday, November 5, 2008
it is now November...very the near end of the year...have yet to see/hear/witness change to situation you have put us (i.e. you, your family, my family...) in. Are you trying hard enough?
PLEASE...make up your blardy mind! Or shall i marry her off to someone else? DON'T under estimate my power over her! CAN?
2. Feeling guilty coz i'm yet to put up a post on Kak Long and MAksu's birthday. It was last week - 28 October. We had a couple of celebrations but malas nak write about it and very the laze to post pixes..can?
3. finding out that she doesn't care that Obama is the new President. Boleh ker rimau belang menukar belangnya?
4. beginning to get back the feeling of dread..bitchy bozz is coming to work tomorrow! Its been bliss the last 3 days without her!!
5. signing off...wanna go watch CSI!
Ciao folks...be good!

The ending...the town was in danger of flooding coz Grace (thats the girl-whose-soul-belongs-to-the sea's name) was going to marry the narrator of the movie and leave the town to escape the villagers' wrath. But her godmother (acted by Sonia Braga - i think she was one of Mick Jagger's exes) told her of her asal usul and asked her to do the right thing to save the village. Needless to say, she did...she ran to the sea and continued running until she disappeared into the sea...Poor narrator was left brokenhearted by the beach....end of story!
I'd say its a good movie...dah lama tak tengok citer macam tu...

And my plan didn't work. Although I was tired in the plane from Sydney to Santiago, I couldn't sleep dengan aman. As a result, I arrived in Santiago REAAALLLLLLLYYYYY tired!
Anyways, today finally get to jalan2 a bit. We were taken to this bazaar called Santa Lucia yang banyak jual local handicrafts. Tapi mahal laa barang2 kat sini so i only managed to buy some t-shirts and sling bags that KakLong and Sarah asked for. Have not managed to get anything for adik. But there's still tomorrow. My flight home is in the late evening so i'll have the day to roam santiago....
oklah...kalau ada lagi apa-apa interesting to update, i'll write some more then. In the meantime...gambar2 i dah upload kat facebook. Azian, you have FB account?
Friday, October 24, 2008
Let me tell you there is nothing glamorous about my travels of late...its all about meetings and reports! Boring babes!! Coming to Santiago took 26 hours! First leg - from KL to Sydney was OK. Ye lah...dapat naik MAS, Biz Class pulak tu! I had a plan.. i wasn't going to sleep that whole 8 hours so as to make myself tired for the 2nd leg. So, i stayed up and watched 3 movies! I saw Get Smart (hilarious!), Sumthing, sumthing the American Girl (OK OK jer), and this i think a Latin American English speaking movie called Sea of Dreams (damn interesting - about a girl whose soul belongs to the sea! So sapa-sapa fall in love with her will die coz the sea will get jealous! Pelakon-pelakon seme lawa-lawa and hensem-hensem! Unfortunately, i didnt get to see the end coz we arrived in Sydney by then! Altogether now..laaaaaaaaa).
Sydney singgah jap jer then the travelling began! We naik Chilean Airline called LAN. Its a teeny weeny plane and we had to travel economy for the next 15 hours!!!!! Sakit pinggang....sakit tengkuk...dah lah makanan tak halal!! Menderita babes!!!
Tapi alhamdulillah sampai Santiago dengan selamat...bag pun selamat! So far belum sempat explore Santiago coz sibuk ngan meeting. But insyaALLAH meeting is scheduled only for half a day tomorrow, so lepas tu boleh la jalan-jalan!! Weather kat sini panas. Its spring but its been very warm and sunny spring days since I arrive. I dunno...i tengok cam Mesia jer tempat ni! Very dry and dusty...cam Langkawi pun ada! Tadi sempat amik gambar kat depan the Presindential Palace which is in front of the place where we have the meetings. Nanti bila2 i will paste the pixes K...
so...what have you guys been up to??
Thursday, October 16, 2008
Until i discovered blogs....wow! that opened a whole new window for me!! Seronoknya baca the writings of others...i can't really recall how i found out about these blogs but find them I did. I started reading blogs of people I don't know...then link here link there, i found family and friends! I found Teeny..Ika...Haq...Shila...Ina's and Yati's fotopages..i felt connected with them...knowing what they are up to in their day to day lives...then link some more, i found their friends. And of late I've made some new friends through their comment boxes. I don't comment much but i would whenever i rasa "terpanggil" to do so, especially when the writer seems particularly friendly, even in their writings. People like Zetty ..Mrs Goodthings@home...
But not all blogs are enjoyable to read. Some concentrates too much on our oh-so-happening political on-goings...one blogger wrote only about the good stuff in her life. She's too ceria to the point of annoyance!! I cannot tahan so i've deleted her from my reading list! Life can't be that good alllllll the time, okeyyyyy...
Of late i've discovered story tellers...like Mr Bangkai, Puteri Kamaliah and Kak Teh Choc-a-Bloc. They write with such eloquence sampai i macam shy pulak. Shy sorang-sorang jer laaa...I feel my own writings are soooo boring and tak creative langsung! Tapi i don't know how else to write...so i suppose i should just be me..this is my own blog kan?!
I just want to mention the blog of Superwoman's friend who calls herself MrsNordin. I really admire her writings coz she bares all...she writes to her heart's content. Tak kira sapa baca and tak kira if orang yang baca will get upset by what she writes...Mind you, she doesn't write bad things about people...she just writes exactly what she thinks of people and things happening around her!
Me...i started this blog last year...konon nak tulis pasal kitorang gi jalan-jalan kat europe dulu tapi dah banyak melencong ni! but still i dare not write too much! i dare not take the risk of "upsetting" people! So i write about "safe" things...can arr? can lah ooh! My blog waaattttt... maybe one day..i'll write about how i really feel about things and about people around me (would love to bitch about bosses!!).
Now Mumsie dah jumpa facebook pulak! Don't you just luurrveee all these internet thingies!!

But Ramadhan in Malaysia ... good, of course. Berpuasa di samping sanak saudara... and Mumsie did not have to cook alll the time. Penting tu..here's a list of ways we berbuka this time (in no particular order):
1. Mumsie masak some lauk, Abah top up with lauk and kueh from Pasar Ramadhan
2. Mumsie masak nasi jer, Abah buy loads of lauk from Pasar Ramadhan.
3. Mumsie tak masak apa-apa, Abah beli nasi kerabu/nasi beryani/nasi tomato/nasi lemak/ kuetiaw goreng/mee sup and loads of kueh from Pasar Ramadhan.
4. Abah gi kedai dekat-dekat rumah, tempah food and come home to fetch the rest of us. We will go back to the shop in time for buka. Makan and quickly balik rumah for prayers. This is Mumsie's favourite way of buka coz I don't have to kemas and basuh any pinggan mangkuk! We did this about 3 times. Anak-anak pun suka coz they get to order the food they want to eat...e.g nasi goreng ikan masin laaa...ikan sweet sour laaa...all freshly cooked! Not like the lauk from the Pasar Ramadhan. Once gi Secret Recipe, tapi food tak best and service was bad so we never went back...
5. Go for buffet buka puasa..once kat Penang Village tu and once kat Ancasa Hotel, Mak De belanja. Must say that I really enjoyed the one at Ancasa, not merely because Mak De belanja but also tempat tu very nice. Food was VERY good (we get fresh apam balik which was da bomb! teringak lak zaman buat apam balik sendiri dulu....) and tak ramai sangat orang. So tak de lah berebut2. Company was of course laaaaa VERY gooodddd... here's some pixes:
6. Balik kampung...one weekend tu we went back to Melaka, where Mumsie did absolute bugger all in terms of preparing food. Mumsie biar jer all the in-laws masak. They are good cooks anyway! Mumsie took the job of going to the Pasar Ramadhan to buy drinks and kueh-mueh. The badak berendam kat Pasar Ramadhan Duyung was out of this world punya sedap!!
Other weekends, Mak Su will join us kat Putrajaya. Dialah yang melayan budak-budak gi Alamanda before buka...beli Starbucks frapuccino laaa...Baskin Robbins laaa...yum yum!
7. For sahur 90% of the time Mumsie will bangun and cook. The rest I would just panaskan lauk lebih from buka time and once we went to McDonalds! Best jugak tu. Ingatkan tak ramai orang at 4 a.m tu tapi rupanya ramai yang beratur dah! and then ingatkan we all jer bawak bebudak at that godforsaken time tapi ramai families bersahur kat situ! Tu lah ..orang Mesia dah senang sekarang ni...
So, all in all, Mumsie had a good Ramadhan. I even managed to ikut Abah for terawih kat Masjid Putrajaya for at least half of Ramadhan. Good, eh?
Oklah...next time i citer pasal raya plak!
Monday, October 6, 2008
But i had a good day today...hari yang aman. I spent most of it on my own since the girls were at school and Abah went to work. First I go tabung haji...simpan duit bonus Pak Lah kasik and yang i tersangatlah deserve nya itu. I got cita-cita to go Mekah, you see...Punyalah ramai orang but good to note most people were depositing money. i.e. signs that orang tengah berjimat cermat sekarang ni.
Then Mumsie decide nak gi tempat yang Abah tak suka pergi so I better grab the chance to go on my own so I went to Midvalley. Nak gi IKEA jauh sangat. Nanti tak sempat balik to fetch the children from school. Had breakfast at Toast Box then jalan2 kat The Gardens. Vaaahhhh..posh nyer that place. Tak de maknanya nak spend too much time kat situ but i bought what i set out to buy from there (i don't believe in window shopping!). i.e. a couple of M&S jeans yang tersangatlaaa sesuwei dengan tubuh badan Mumsie yang cun melecun ni! hahahaha....
On the way back i singgah Carls Jr to buy the children's lunch. Kononnya nak kan kelainan coz we haven't had Carls Jr since balik but then Mumsie tersangatlah terkezut when i had to pay RM52 for 3 burgers!!! waliao!! mahal nya!! cekik darah bebs!! I think we'll stick to Burger King and McD from now on!
Sambung citer...after hantar anak2 ke sekolah ugama (budak-budak tu tension nak explain their 1 month absence during Ramadhan but turns out the ustazahs don't really care...oh well!) I went to lepak kat Alamanda pulak. Tapi kejap jer sebab tak der aper nak cari. Then balik and watched drama Pondok Buruk with Sarah. This is a repeat. The first time I saw this when it first came out a couple of years ago i cried like a baby throughout the movie! Tapi hari ni cam tak sedih lah pulak. I think I dah overdose on Rashid Sibir's dramas this past couple of days. Aiyooo..he makes depressing dramas okeyyyy...allll about anak derhaka and dying parents!! and balik-balik pakai lagu Sudirman about ayah ibu tu. You know..the one that goes..ayah dan ibuuu...ayah dan ibuuu..itulah permulaaan kitaaaa....Sampai Sarah pun dah asyik hum that tune jer!
My day pretty much ended with me cooking Abah's buka puasa meal. Sedap Mumsie masak hari ni! hahahaha...talk about angkat bakul sendiri!! I cooked udang masak lemak (Abah's request. ada masuk tempoyak sikit so ada rasa terangkatlah!)...udang goreng sambal (Sarah's request! tak sampai hati nak say NO so i bahagi dua supply udang so dapatlah sikit-sikit between masak lemak and the sambal). Kangkung goreng tauchu which was nice enough to prompt Kak Long to makan sayur tonite! yeay! and ayam goreng tersangat garing!
Okeyla peeps. Penat arr puji-puji diri ni...am off to gosok baju pulak. Have i told you i'm dreading tomorrow???

But Pierce Brosnan should just concentrate on acting. He can't sing!
We went to see the movie yesterday..we, as in Mumsie, Maksu and the girls. Amidst Abah's disapproving looks saying "aperlaaa puasa-puasa ni gi tengok wayang pulak!" Tapi dia tetap izinkan so kira okey lah tuuuuu...
The girls enjoyed it as much as I did. they had the lyrics on the screen so everyone could sing along, Sarah did a tad louder than others prompting Kak Ngah to nudge her ever so often! hehehe...After the show we went to two record shops in Midvalley tu but in both the soundtrack for Mamma Mia was sold out!! Last-last jumpa kat Alamanda..yeay!
OK then..altogether now...see that girl...watch that scene...diggin' the dancing queen....lalalala...

Me? Mumsie's killing time before I have to wake everybody up to go for their tuition so that lepas tu Mumsie can pay Sandra a visit!! Sandra who? Sandra is my tailor..who has been sewing Mumsie's clothes since Mumsie muda remaja lagi! and she's also responsible for causing the main dent in my pockets most months!!
Anyway...Mumsie nak gi fetch baju raya la ni...and for the first time, we asked Sandra to make baju for Kak Long. A lacy kebaya. Harap-harap it will be nice.
Mumsie agak teruja ni..iyolah, dah tiga tahun tak beraya kat Malaysia ni..so ala-ala excited menempah dan membeli baju for Mumsie and the girls. Cuma Abah jer cool. He's insisting that he will only shop for his baju raya bila dah balik kampung nanti. Apa-apa je lah Abah oiiii..
Tapi Mumsie tak delah going overboard. Dun vorry. The girls gets 2 new baju kurungs and a new dress each. Complemented dengan baju beli kat US and India, walaupun dah pakai a few times...voila! their Raya wardrobe is ready. Cuma tinggal nak beli kasut Raya for Sarah and Soraya. The rest seme dah dapat. Speaking of kasut...we have discovered that Kak Long now wears adult size 9!!! Waliao! Tak lama lagi kena tempah la gamaknya kasut-kasut for her!! How did she manage to grow like that??
Kueh raya? Pun Mumsie tak beli banyak. Sapa yang datang tunjuk sample, Mumsie will order one balang, simply to support his/her effort to berniaga tu. Tak ramai yang tunjuk sample puunnn so Mumsie has less than 10 balangs of kueh raya. Once I distribute to my mom..my in-laws...the ladies who clean my house...i should be left with one or 2 for my own. Oklah tu, kan! Ingat nak buat juga sikit...biskut nestum ke...biskut cornflakes ke...but so far ala-ala malas la pulok!
Been thinking about Geneva of late. Went to my previous posts where I told of our Puasa activities last year in Geneva....I miss those days..they were good fun! buka ramai-ramai...makan macam-macam...teringat lengat si Yati...kueh koci si Aishah...karipap sadin si Ita...apam gula hangus Auntie..and of course, nasi kerabu at TYT's residence....hmmmmmm...
well...puasa kat sini oklah jugak...tapi tak delah meriah berkomuniti...seme orang sibuk...and pasar ramadan makes it tak personal...know what i mean?
OK lah peeps...lain kali plak cerita!

Koko V has been a part of our family for a while already. The girls would definitely miss her. They have been very good in taking care of her...feeding her, cleaning her and of course, playing with her, even masa dia dah sarat...
Even I am sad...i never really cared for her but somehow, as a Mummy I know she was having a hard time during the pregnancy and the labour. So, I was worried and did ask the girls to harass their Abah to take her to the vet. I can somehow imagine the pain she was in but i never thought she would die....
So long Koko V...rest in peace...may you find eternal happiness with your babies (they never left her womb) in cats heaven...

petang tadi Mumsie attended a meeting which was also attended by 14 Ministers and Deputy Ministers!! Mumsie so teruja to be in such close proximity with them!! Meeting was chaired by the YAB Deputy Minister. He did make a little joke about hoping that they will still be in business by this 16 September! hahaha...but i must say that my perception of him has changed somewhat. I think he can be quite smart, if he wants to. I mean, he showed that he understands what people were telling him just now, even the technical stuff and he showed that he can actually make some sound decisions. hmmm...must give him benefit of doubt from now on...
I was duly impressed that the Ministers speaks very good English! All that was there tadi although the Deputy Human Resource Minister tried to speak more Malay than English. I don't understand why since everybody else speaks mostly in English and her English was not bad at all.
But this I must say...the man who impressed me the most is the Finance Minister II. That man is sooooo smart...he so knows what he is talking about!! mind blowing, i tell you!! Minister of Agriculture was not so bad either...
Yang lain-lain tu...my bozz included...no comment!
an interesting point to note...everyone was referring to DPM as "Sir". waaaa...

Tuesday, July 22, 2008
We bertolak early2 (by Mumsie's standard!) Saturday morning. Singgah Burger King kat Sungai Buloh R&R for breakfast before heading straight to CH. Perrrggghhh...jauh rupanya CH ni! We arrived almost 5 hours after we left Putrajaya!!
After checking in (sesat a bit before that coz of missing signboards!). Then off to find food at a pasar malam close by. That was fun! We went ga-ga over the fresh vege...and bought loads of fried food...fried mushroom..fried shrimps...fried sotong...more fried mushroom...and of course, strawberries! Including those dipped in chocolate sauce. And we ate everything whilst walking around!
Pas tu we decided its still early so we went off looking for this Teh Boh shop that sells tea and scone. That was gooodddd...sipping masala tea (that started off great but became too masala-ish as it gets cooler...) and ate scones with cream and jam by the tea trees...nice.....
Balik..penat so terus tidur! hahaha....ok...ok...i'm sure maksu wants me to tell what really happened...Balik the banglo, Abah and Mumsie went straight to bed whilst Maksu and Wan had to layan the kids, including making them dinner coz they became hungry again before going to bed!! hahahahaha....oopsss, ok, not funny!
Esoknya ...we lepak2 and left for home by about 11 am. Singgah beli t-shirts for everyone then singgah another Boh shop for another round of teh (this time we stick to good old teh tarik!) and scones. Then singgah Lata Iskandar..wajib for the girls...its a waterfall, by the way! Wajib because we promised the girls and wajib coz adik muntah all over me minutes before we reached that place! eewwwww!!
Then singgah Tapah for lunch and terus balik Putrajaya...phew!! I leave this posting with gambar Kak Long and Mak Su enjoying scones and homemade choc cake on our way home...

It has been a loooonnnngggggg week! Meeting the Americans have been particularly taxing! Diorang ingat kita gullible. Unfortunately, there are Members in our delegation who gives them justification to think so! sigghhhh...
So far travel home is OK. FLite from DC to LA was on time although Mumsie macam orang giler mengangkut bag coz i kept getting into the wrong lanes to check in! Rasa da nak nangis takut terlepas flight!
LA to Taipei ni of course la OK..naik MAS and as government official dapat naik Biz Class. So tersangatlah comfortable nye...well, as far as comfort in travelling laa..I mean, how comfortable can you get in a plane, right?! and I also believe, bcoz the trip this time took sooooooo long (siket lebih kurang 24 jam tak termasuk waiting time kat airports!!) Mumsie has somewhat overcome my fear of flying! I remember thinking tadi when the plane bergoncang-goncang: hiyya...nak jatuh, jatuhlaaaaa...its probably the penatness+i- sooo-need-a-shower spur of the moment kinda thoughts laaaa...

Lunch tadi, a couple of mat salleh took my bozz and I out to lunch and as we walked, we passed the belakang of the White House. Mumsie sungguh teruja!!
Hopefully i'll have time to see the front part....hehehe...
teeny: Mumsie mungkin dah tak sempat ke factory outlet. Kalau kat High Street punya shop may be can tapi harga cam USD 200 above laaaa...next time, K (chewah...macam la akan dihantar for more meetings ke sini! ).
Iks: nak DVD apa? itupun mak teh cannot promise, OK. My meetings last until late everyday but hopefully i'll have some time on Friday before flying home, OK!
p.s. I had an interesting conversation petang tadi. This guy came up to me and asked: Puan, were you a magistrate before? I said yes la, of course and as I had suspected, he said: you know...i pernah kena marah by you dulu...masa i chambering and doing legal aid matters kat court!
hahaha...small world kan! That guy is now a diplomat here in DC...tomorrow must find out his name. tadi lupa nak tanya.
I also saw George York at his office. Remember last Ramadhan I wrote that I went to his farewell party kat Geneva? Anyways...it was good to meet someone that has that Geneva connection. Both of us was going on and on and on about how much we miss Geneva and the people back there!
But you know what...right now Mumsie is aching from missing my girls.....and Abah....rasa dah lama nya tak jumpa diorang....sob sob.....

But OK laaa...lets be honest...best gak laaa dapat datang DC ni. This is my first ever trip ke US of A ni. So, teruja gak laa. I like DC. Very cosy...trees lined the streets so its really redup. Rumah2 dia pun cantik-cantik...just like we always see on TV.
I arrived on Sunday morning DC time. Lepas freshen up i joined rombongan to this factory outlet called Leesburgh Corner (rasanya laa) where allllll the women went on a frenzy buying COACH handbags!! Too cheap apparently! Am proud to say that I was NOT one of those women. I was thinking my handbags yang i beli masa kat Geneva dulu tak habis pakai lagi. And plus...me thinking COACH is not all that great coz semua and I mean SEMUA orang pakai COACH ...ori or not is another story ...but it is sooooo common even in Malaysia. So instead, I went to buy OshKosh stuff for Soraya, Tommy Hilfiger and GAP Tees for K.ngah and Sarah and Guess Jeans for K.Long and Lacoste for Abah (they are soooo gonna love me!hehe!). Ohhh and some Aigner stuff (read: a work bag and a pair of shoes!) for me (mucccchhhhh cheaper than COACH okeyyyyyy! eh, why am I justifying me-self???). Now, tinggal nak cari some Hannah Montana stuff for the girls.
Today start meeting...with bullies, if i can say that! siggghhhhh...penat arr...
Oklah..gotta go back to doing my daily report (see...banyak keje tau!!).
Will write again soon!

But must tell you that the trip to Agra was like taking part in the Amazing Race! We were booked with this tour bus but they gave us an olllllddd bus! So old that it leaked when it rained in Agra! Then, it was so old that a 4 hour trip took 7 hours for us!! Penat gilerrrr! Kinda took the excitement of seeing Taj Mahal away for a bit!
About 5 minutes before we reached Agra, it rained like its never rained before (well..apparently it never rained like that in summer before! Apparently this is India's coolest summer ever! hmmm...). So much so that the bus had to go through a minor flood and we had to jump on boxes from the bus to get to a restaurant for lunch!!
Alls well that ends well, i suppose. After Agra, we went back to Delhi (arrived at 2 am!!) and spent the next day saree shopping!! yeay! happiness is restored! The shop we went to is in the middle of this famous place called Babu Market in Sarojini Nagar. The shop is so familiar with Malaysian shoppers that the owner and helper could speak Malay and they accept RM! Cool, eh! So cool that i spent my entire month's salary in that place!!!
Then, my meetings started and Abah balik Malaysia...end of story...hehehe!

So, when they turn the book into a movie and its showing in Alamanda, naturally I would want to see it, right! and i did. Just now. and no...abah did not watch it with me! Me and Jue went for Ayat-ayat Cinta, while Abah and Khairul, Jue's boyfriend went to see Incredible Hulk! All's fair in love and movie preference, is all i can say!
Now, about the movie...macam ok-ok jer although the last 1 hour was good! an exaggeration of the book itself but powerful! Wished the hero was handsomer and macho-er. The guy was potrayed like a real kampung boy! Kinda make you wonder why the girls (about 4 of them) were falling all over themselves over him!
Shall i tell you about the end? In the book, the end was about his second wife. She's a Christian who fell in love with him. She learned and knew all about Islam, most probably because of him but they didn't outrightly say so laa...it must be politically correct jugak kan...Anyways, she was dying of broken heart coz hero married someone else but she also turned out to be key witness in the case of hero was charged for raping a woman (another angle to the book..lets not go there). So, to save her and himself, hero converted her and married her. She saved him from death sentence and eventually she died but not before having this dream of trying to get into syurga tapi tak boleh. The doors wouldn't open for her. So, hero and first wife get her to pray with them and mengucap and finally the last door opened and she dies peacefully.....
Dalam movie..pretty much the same tapi they also showed that the three of them shared good and bad times before the second wife hits the dust. First wife was having a hard time to accept the second one although she's the one yang insist the hero marry the second one tu. hero pulak terlebih suka kat the second wife sampai lupa nak berlaku adil. But all things being Islamic, they worked things out and managed to share good times. The part the second wife meninggal tu simple jer...she asked for forgiveness and minat nak sembahyang together...then she died whilst praying...no mention of the dream...tapi sedih gak laaa...
Mumsie tetap nangis.....

Mumsie's been trying to go on a diet. I need to lose some weight..nothing fits anymore! On good days, i succeed but more often than not, I succumb to the calling of carbs and fried food!! how laaaaa?
Reminds me of a conversation I had with the girls after i met a lady who used to go to school with me wayyyyyyy back in 1970s.
Girls: Sapa tu Mummy?
Mumsie: believe it or not, that lady and I used to go to sekolah rendah together!
Girls (not sure which one): and she still can recognize you?
Mumsie: yeap! goes to show I haven't changed much!
Kak Ngah: you mean...you were fat then as well??????
end of story...so, can you see the dilemma i'm in? i so need to diet...i so need to diet...i so need to diet............
All the girls said ...yeeeaaaaahhhhhh...ho hum!
Mumsie asked Soraya : Adik ingat ker sapa Abang Amir tu?
Soraya : Ingat laaaa...anak Ustazah and Atok Berahim!!
Her exact words tau! You see Auntie...i hope you're reading this coz it means to tell you that you, Atuk and Abg Amir are very much remembered by us here...
You don't miss us meh??

Anyways, the show....where do i start?? Tersangat-sangat menghiburkan! Make me want to jump on stage and join the dance! Make me want to know P.Ramlee!! Musly Ramlee was so real! I love the way he sang and dance. Sebijik macam P.Ramlee! Everyone said Musly did great in the show but I wonder...will he only be great as P.Ramlee?
The set...i was totally gobsmacked impressed!! The train...the double decker stage...am so impressed! After the show, we hung around and saw Datin Seri Tiara and her husband so, we joined the line to congratulate them. Must say, the Datuk Seri very the charming! very the soft spoken one!
But after watching PRTM, i'm now curious about this man. This so-called Malay genius of all time. perhaps i'll start watching his movies now...i certainly want to watch Penarik Beca!

I've been in Singapore since Monday nite but has not managed to see much. Of course la me not here on holiday but still....
Meeting started on Tuesday but it lasted till 10 pm. Semalam was not so bad. We were free by 6 pm. So, met up with Kak Yah and Ina but we only managed to go to Bugis Street and this place called Clarke Quay. Highlight was that we were together!! Sorrylah Kak Yah, I couldn't really appreciate those places. Penat and ngantuk!
Hmmm...must come again. As tourist. then maybe can appreciate this country!
The infamous Singapore sale has started, menambah sakit di hati Mumsie, not that i can afford to shop laaaa...but still, it would be nice kalau dapat beli a blouse or 2...
the meeting does not look like its going to end any time soon. poor Ina is alllll by herself in the hotel room! And I donno whether I'll get a chance to say bye bye to Kak Yah tomorrow! Bak kata Ina...OH NOOO!!
p.s. the ICJ decision on Malaysia-Singapore dispute on Batu Putih will be out tomorrow...doakan kejayaan Malaysia, folks!

Suruhanjaya dapati Lingam bercakap dengan Ahmad Fairuz dalam rakaman klip videoKUALA LUMPUR: Bekas Timbalan Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor dan tokoh korporat, Tan Sri Vincent Tan, secara langsung mempengaruhi pelantikan serta kenaikan pangkat hakim. Ini adalah antara kesimpulan Suruhanjaya Diraja bagi menyiasat klip video yang didakwa mengandungi perbualan seorang peguam dengan hakim kanan bagi mengatur pelantikan hakim, yang mengadakan inkuiri selama 17 hari berakhir 15 Februari lalu.
Suruhanjaya itu, dalam laporannya, juga menyatakan keraguan terhadap keterangan Tengku Adnan dan Tan dalam inkuiri berkenaan kerana mereka sekadar menafikan pelbagai soalan daripada peguam yang mewakili pihak berkepentingan. Hasil siasatan suruhanjaya itu juga jelas bercanggah dengan kenyataan Tengku Adnan dalam inkuiri itu yang menyebut: "Saya tiada kena mengena dengan pelantikan hakim". Tan juga ketika memberi keterangan, mendakwa beliau tiada kaitan dengan pelantikan hakim. Laporan suruhanjaya itu mendapati, peguam, Datuk VK Lingam, menyebut nama Tengku Adnan sebanyak 11 kali dalam rakaman klip video selama 14 minit itu, ketika bercakap dengan bekas Ketua Hakim Negara, Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim.
Sehubungan itu, suruhanjaya berkenaan mencadangkan beberapa individu yang memberi keterangan dalam inkuiri berkenaan disiasat mengikut Akta Hasutan, Akta Rahsia Rasmi dan Kanun Keseksaan. Laporan itu turut mendapati, wujud asas untuk agensi penyiasat membuat siasatan berhubung dakwaan Lingam mempunyai hubungan baik dengan Tun Mohd Eusoff Chin yang menjadi Ketua Hakim Negara daripada 1994 hingga 2000. Pada 1998, adik Lingam, Thirunama Karasu membuat laporan kepada Badan Pencegah Rasuah (BPR) yang mendakwa abangnya mempunyai kaitan dengan Mohd Eusoff tetapi perkara berkenaan tidak diambil tindakan susulan. Dalam inkuiri yang diadakan itu, Majlis Peguam mengemukakan gambar, tiket penerbangan dan jadual perjalanan sebagai bukti menunjukkan Mohd Eusoff, Lingam dan keluarga mereka pernah bercuti bersama ke New Zealand pada akhir 1994.
Sehubungan itu, suruhanjaya berkenaan turut mengesyorkan supaya Lingam disiasat kerana salah laku mengikut Akta Profesion Guaman. Suruhanjaya juga membuat penelitian dalam maklum balas kepada keterangan yang diberikan bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dan bekas Ketua Hakim Negara, Tun Mohamed Dzaiddin Abdullah. Dalam laporannya itu, Suruhanjaya berkenaan memetik Dr Mahathir sebagai mempunyai 'tafsiran sempit' terhadap perkataan 'perundingan' berhubung proses pelantikan serta kenaikan pangkat hakim. Ia dibuat sebagai maklum balas kepada tindakan Dr Mahathir yang tidak menerima nasihat Dzaiddin supaya melantik Allahyarham Tan Sri Malek Ahmad menjadi Hakim Besar Malaya pada Ogos 2001. Sebaliknya, jawatan itu diberikan kepada Ahmad Fairuz yang ketika itu lebih junior berbanding Malek. Malek meninggal dunia pada 31 Mei tahun lalu. Laporan media baru-baru ini memetik Dr Mahathir sebagai berkata, beliau sudah membaca petikan daripada laporan suruhanjaya terbabit dan mendakwa wujud usaha mengaitkannya dengan perkara itu walaupun bekas Perdana Menteri itu menafikan mempunyai hubungan langsung dengannya. Dr Mahathir turut mendakwa laporan itu sebagai cuba menggambarkan seolah-olah beliau seorang yang bersikap berat sebelah. Suruhanjaya itu juga mencadangkan supaya kerajaan mengkaji semula keanggotaan Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Guaman dan Kehakiman bagi mengelak salah guna kuasa oleh Ketua Hakim Negara yang berhak untuk mencadangkan hakim yang menganggotainya. Ketika ini, suruhanjaya itu diketuai Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam. Peguam Negara yang juga Ketua Jabatan Guaman, adalah juga anggotanya manakala ahli lain semuanya terdiri daripada kalangan hakim. Suruhanjaya Diraja juga mencadangkan supaya Hakim Besar Malaya dan Hakim Besar Sabah dan Sarawak turut menganggotai badan itu kerana mereka juga bertanggungjawab dalam pelantikan, pertukaran dan kenaikan pangkat hakim serta pendaftar mahkamah yang lebih rendah. Cadangan itu dibuat kerana sebelum ini, berlaku keadaan di mana Ketua Hakim Negara mengamalkan pilih kasih. Tiga lagi cadangan Suruhanjaya Diraja ialah supaya ditubuhkan Suruhanjaya Pelantikan Kehakiman bagi hakim mahkamah yang lebih tinggi; penubuhan Tribunal Aduan Kehakiman serta pindaan Perkara 121 Perlembagaan Persekutuan bagi menghapuskan persepsi bahawa badan eksekutif mempunyai pengaruh terhadap institusi kehakiman. Laporan Suruhanjaya Diraja itu sudah diserahkan kepada Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin pada Jumaat lalu dan salinannya diberi kepada Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi serta Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim. Kandungan laporan itu akan dibincangkan dalam mesyuarat Jemaah Menteri hari ini yang akan memutuskan sama ada ia perlu didedahkan kepada umum.

Phone call #1 goes sikit lebih kurang cam ni..."you cannot go to Singapore. Sapa suruh you pegi? We have better things to do at the office!"
Phone call #2 - "You're going to Singapore and thats it!"
SYMP jer...saya yang menurut perintah...tapi 2 bosses tak bersependapat...i yang free-free kena marah...so, consider i tengah mogok la ni...hehehe!
So, am off to Singapore next week. To attend some meetings I know nothing about. Tak per...saya yang menurut perintah. And am sure sooner or later i akan pandai jugak on the substance of the meeting. Oklah tu...and i get to go to Singapore. Last time I was there was many MANY years ago..when we used to live in JB. Back in early 1980s.
And Kak Yah and I get to meet!! Wooohhoooo!!
OK...dah habis waktu bekerja...am off to fetch the girls. Tonite Mumsie has plans to cook! Macaroni soup!! wish me luck! hwahwahhuaaaaaa

I had a "low-key" (translated: as good as non eventful) celebration. Abah basically didn't think much of today..perhaps coz he's already said the birthday gift covers a few celebration, so I suppose this is one of them. Which also means I need not look forward to our anniversary, which is around the corner!
We were in PD over the weekend (yes, PD..again!). Abah's Division at work had their family day. Not very exciting, so not going to say anything else about it.
But, once home, Kak Long presented me with roses (no..not the real ones...) and Soraya gave me a "card" (translated: a piece of paper with alphabets written all over it!). Sarah came later and reluctantly (translated: Mummy took her arms and put them around me!) gave me hugs and whispers of "i love you". Nothing from K.Ngah...hmmmm....
But dinner was at Penang Village! yumyummmmmmm....
Since coming back, we've been reading Harian Metro quite a bit, simply bcoz its one of the cheapest newspaper on the newsstand! Abah has refused to spend RM2.50 on papers that provides lopsided news, if -ya- no- what- I- mean, nudge-nudge, wink-wink!!
Of course, there's all those stories about missing girls...Supposedly it is to highlight the happy ending..that they were eventually found by their families (although Sharlinie is still missing...). But the question(s) in my mind is....kat Indonesia tu dah tak der perempuan ker yang boleh di buat bini?? Don't give me all that love is blind crap, OK! In these cases, love was blind, dumb, deaf and stupid!
OK..ok...i shouldn't say much..i have 4 of my own. I should concentrate on them, right! Ye laaa...its just that all these stories are freaking me out! BIG time!! Tu belum lagi I start on those I-don't-know-what-to-call-them girls who gets caught for tranporting drugs into foreign countries!!

About the girls? They're OK. Life has fallen into a comfortable routine...except when Mummy has to travel. But we still have not managed to get a maid! Bummer, really! So far, we're managing by getting some part time help from 2 Indonesian ladies (not at the same time) who comes and clean the house whenever I S.O.S them. Abah says they are sufficient as he is no longer used to have a "stranger" living with us. But Mumsie is still hoping for a permanent live-in maid. It makes a difference...coming home to a clean house and a messy house! It makes a wholllle lot of difference!
And I kesian the girls...Mumsie has not been cooking..at all! I so malas to clean the kitchen! Excuse, I know..but i really get put off when I have to work in a kitchen I'm not in charge of..when I don't know where things are, etc. You see...Wan spends a lot of time in the kitchen and her standards (whatever that is) is much lower than mine...so I'd rather not cook for my family and let her rule in that space than going in there only to get irritated..know what i mean? No? Nevermind...people who knows the kind of relationship that I have with my own Mom would know...for those yang tak tahu..well, you're better off not knowing, believe me!
So, for a long time now, I've been rushing to buy lauk for the girls for their lunch (Wan masak nasi!) and dinner would also be at some shops/restaurants somewhere. Efficient, although not always cheap!
To be fair, I do cook on weekends...roughly about once a month! Coz, we are hardly at home during weekends. Ada-ada jer program nye!
But the other day, Kak Long said she wanted to eat cake and asked Mummy to bake one! I said I cannot be bothered and we have Secret Recipe in Alamanda which is practically 5 minutes away from home! She did continue complaining about me not cooking and baking anymore but finally agreed to Secret Recipe coz she can have 3 slices of different cakes at the same time! Again, efficient but not cheap!
By the way...the girls had just finished their monthly test. Sarah is proving that despite still facing difficulties to fit in, her studies are not affected. Alhamdulillah...Yang interesting nye..Kak Long claims she got first place in sekolah agama's tests...but she failed 1 or 2 papers. How laaaa? She's not in the last class, mind you! So, I wonder laa..bebudak yang dapat nombor over 10 or 20 tu camana laaaa markah diorang ek!
Ok...its wayyyy past midnite. I have a loooong day planned for tomorrow. Need to take the girls for a movie..been promising them since Labour Day (but Mummy was away at a course that day..but thats another story..one that is not worth telling!). Then, need to iron 5300 pairs (sure feels like it!) of school uniforms and locate 300 pairs of matching socks! and kalau rajin (highly unlikely) will cook dinner!
Glad to hear that ramai orang Geneva akan balik cuti this August..tapi i tak harap dapat jumpa, judging by all the missed dates between Mumsie, KakYah and Ina!! ye laaaa sapa lah i.....
Kak Tam and Ika...please don't be upset..there wasn't any birthday party. Just lunch and cake cutting ceremony, which took place well after 11 that night! Just so happens that Madihah was around...
My girlies..Mummy is serious...no TV on school nites from now on except on weekends and school holidays! But we'll go for a movie tomorrow! hehehe...
InaBES...bila nak jumpa nie??????
MPs in Parliament...prove your worth guys!
Tun M...sudah-sudah la tu...Pak Lah...i SERIOUSLY hope you know what you're doing!
BALKIS ...give it up and return the money laaa...PLEASE!
Malaysians...give the Opposition a chance, will ya!
there! I've said my peace....enjoy the rest of your weekend folks!
Sunday, April 27, 2008
Anyhoo...i must say, semalam was the first time i really feel glad that we're back in Malaysia..i had the best birthday ever! Mainly, because we had a celebratory lunch that i don't have to cook myself! and cut a cake that i didn't have to bake myself!
We started the morning with breakfast...at our usual hang out place in Sri Serdang...nothing great...then Mumsie and girlies went off to have our hair washed...and soraya had a hair cut ala Victoia Beckham gitew!
Lunch was at Italiannies in Sunway Pyramid! Best giler OK! MakSU joined us with her "friend" who I'm not supposed to talk about in this blog..yet! Am not even supposed to post pictures of them..yet! But here's our food...the cake came first!
Then shopping kat Marks and Spencer...beli b*ra coz my favourite cotton lace bra I bought kat M&S back when I was still a student in UK finally gave up on me last week. It finally koyak beyond repair! Oooppsss...Too much information?? hehe...Don't worry..I won't post the pictures! Not that I took any, mind you!
Malam tadi the girls and MakSU did a little surprise thingy...you knowlah, lights out then call Mummy downstairs then lampu back on and the girls screaming "Happy Birthday Mummy!!!". And Mumsie must show (fake) Mumsie's best suprised face! This is something they do for me every year...And I hope they will continue to do for many more of Mumsie's birthdays...
By the by...here's Abah's present...tiny little diamonds but enough for me...i so sayang him! hehe....
