There won’t be any more gardening posts for the next few weeks until tahun depan…
There will be very infrequent updates in the next 10 days (unless I have wi-fi and I rajin nak update about what’s going on or The Other Half ter rajin nak update for me.)
I will be going back to Malaysia all by myself esok for 10 days. The Other Half and The Little Misses will be left behind to fend for themselves…
Sob sob sob…sedih jugak rasa hati ni even though cuma untuk 10 hari.
Selalunya it’s The Other Half yang pergi outstation terbang ke mana2 tinggalkan we all ber tiga kat rumah for a few days.
Kali ni, it will be me yang tinggalkan diaorang so it feels a bit strange.
I will be going back sebab Abah I will be undergoing a major heart surgery this Friday, insyaAllah. And I want to be there when that happens and also during post-op care.
Sepanjang I kat sini everytime dia sakit masuk hospital, I was never there to lawat dia or to look after him. Luckily I have siblings and in laws who help my Mak to take care of him in his time of need.
This time, I want to be there sebab it’s a major surgery and I can accompany Mak I to look after him during the day when everyone is at work. So, maybe I akan berkampung lah kat IJN tu.
(Luckily lah kan around IJN tu penuh dengan food courts so every break time, bolehlah I sample all the foods sepuas2 nya ikut selera I instead of terpaksa ikut selera The Little Misses or selera The Other Half, hahahaha…)
Lagipun it’s school holidays sekarang ni and Christmas and New Year holidays for The Other Half so dia takde lectures or consulting jobs so he can look after the girls. And The Other Half wants me to go back to be with Abah.
So, the whole day today I’ve been quite busy. The house is dusted and vacuumed and mopped, the toilets and bathrooms scrubbed and cleaned, the outside area is swept, the washings done and folded.
(In 10 days time when I get back, I just hope the house will still be in a clean condition, hehehe.)
The dinner menu for the 10 nights pun I dah written down for them, heeee. The Other Half kata lagi senang dia nak masak dinner this way sebab he doesn’t have to perah otak fikir what to cook every night.
But what I do know is that a lot of the dinners will have chips/ fries in it, hehehe.
(I just hope they remember to eat vegetables though because I didn’t put that down on the menu list.)
He said, “as long as everyone is fed and no one dies of starvation, that’s good enough!” .
I think Miss 8 lah yang will suffer lebih2 sebab dia tu kan tekak melayu abis and definitely the Dad won’t be cooking anything Malay, hahahaha……
Semalam pulak I did the shopping to stock up the freezer for easy convenient food like sausage rolls and meat pies and cheesy puffs. Tak lah anyone kebulur for lunch kan .
I yang nak naik flight but I jugak yang kena make sure orang yang ditinggal cukup segalanya.
Ciri2 ibu and isteri mithali kah itu? Wahkahkahkahkah…..
(But if you ask The Other Half, he would say itu ciri2 orang yg obsessive yang tak percaya laki dia boleh jaga anak2, heeee ).
It will be a bit sad sebab I won’t be here untuk our wedding anniversary on Thursday and on Christmas Day.
(Luckily I dah buat trial run masak turkey hari tu kan so boleh lah The Other Half masak turkey for Christmas Dinner nanti.)
Tu yang for the past few days, I masak nasi lemak lah, masak kari lah, masak egg benedict lah….sebab nak kena tinggal kan dia, hikhikhik….
And malam ni I masak pasta pulak. Even though they will be having mac n cheese while I am away, I still masak pasta tonite (sebab I yang nak makan ).
I made beef goulash makan dengan fettucine and bread. I loosely followed this recipe. I added sliced carrots, used fresh diced tomatoes and added a bit of sugar and omitted the wine. I was supposed to add cream at the end but I completely forgot. Rasa dia still sedap though .
I definitely will not be eating pasta or any western food (apart from KFC, hehehe) kat Msia nanti!
