Meh nak mula bukak cerita pasal our cuti2 Msia.
Cuti2 Msia kali ni seronok sikit sebab The Other Half could join us.
Walaupun cuma seminggu aje, but it’s better than nothing kan.
But he flew in to Msia about 20 hours later than us, so instead of terus balik kampung, we stayed overnite in KL dulu to wait for The Other Half.
Lagipun takde sape kat kampung masa tu, sebab Mak I pun masa tu tengah dalam perjalanan balik ke Msia dari mengerjakan umrah.
Saturday tu, baru lah we all balik kampung.
Kiranya weekend tu was spent kat Ijok beramah mesra bergelak ketawa dengan all my siblings and their families lah.
The last time we all semua kumpul2 macam tu was in December 2009, when my adik kahwin, which was a long time ago.
During that time, my Abah ada lagi and anak2 sedara I cuma masih 6 lagi and all girls.
This time around, my Abah dah pergi meninggalkan we all and anak2 sedara I dah tambah lagi 2, both boys pulak tu.
Sedih lah jugak masa ramai2 berkumpul kali ni sebab semua tau yang Abah would have loved it having all his cucus and anak2 and menantu2 around.
He would have been very busy pergi pasar beli macam2 and order nasi lemak pagi2 buta from his friend so everyone could have fresh nasi lemak in the morning.
Al Fatihah untuk Abah…
That Sunday, we celebrated Miss 14’s birthday at kampung.
I masak pizza and nachos since the birthday girl tu kan Mat Saleh, hehehe.
And I wanted to do a BBQ so my brothers pun bekerjasama
merentungkan masak all the sausages and the meat and the chicken on the charcoal BBQ!
The Other Half kata dia tak nak get involved with the cooking sebab dia nak jadi mandur aje .
And my sis in law sponsored the cake for the birthday.
Miss 14 only wanted a jaffa cake which is orange butter cake salut with choc ganache.
She wanted a pavlova actually tapi semua malas nak buat pav panas2 kat Msia tu. Dah lah rumah Mak I takde aircond langsung.
And we also managed to take a family photo masa tgh busy2 masak kat dapur and berBBQ tu.
Tengok lah ni, bila ada ramai kids, nak ambik gambar will take a looooonnggggg time!
This is my biggish family
My Emak with her cucus
Told you, bila ambik gambar budak2, memang macam2 perangai, hehehe.
My siblings and Emak.
I’m the second in the family…
I perasan paling kurus, kahkahkahkah….
Miss 14 and Miss 9 with their girl cousins.
And Miss 14’s birthday cake
And the girls and The Other Half jadi orang kampung
And the day before we left for Perth, the girls had a blast playing water balloons with their cousins.
Nasib baik air free kat Selangor kan!
I’ll sambung cerita cuti2 Msia another time ok.
