Long and winding weekend

It was a very long and tiring weekend.

We had a mini open house for the first time ever @ Jasmine. Initially we planned to celebrate my mom and MrJ's birthday together but since Mak had to change her bus ticket from Friday to Saturday due to banjir and work related, so xdela event potong2 keknye.

Invitation was sent out quite late coz we both pun a bit cuak nak ajak too many people into our 630sq ft apartment, tp alang2 mom-in-law and sis-in-law-and-family and my mom and few sedara(s) were committed to come, we just thought why not ajak our close friends sekali, xyah nak masak banyak2 kali. Lagipun everytime org tanye bile ko nak buat open house azie, I'll surely answer 'Rumah aku langsir pun xde lagi, camane la nak ajak org dtg.' Keskes. Tp now dah ade sbb terpakse diadakan supaye terase mcm rumah sikit. Itupun after pujuk rayu Nagoya and Ik3a suruh siyapkan langsir in less than 2 weeks AND of course, they rejected, so we decided to buy ready-made one from Ik3a. Fening2.

Masak wise, Nyah was kind enough to cook for us Nasi Jagung. Siap kene puji lg dengan AyahDe. MrJ and I struggled to kemas rumah and masak soto at the same time and alhamdulillah we managed to finish both before our first guest arrived. Thx to MrJ who did most of the cleaning job, you're my Superman bebeh!!

Around 60 people turned up (including kiddies), alhamdulillah. Thanks to those who came!! and jgn serik pulak dtg rumah kami eh :-)

Penat ya amat but all in all, it's worth it! (right, MrJ.. ;-)) That nite, we both slept like a baby. Since I have hnyB inside me, so I slept like baby^2 (squared). Hehe.

Sunday, 26th
It's mak's 54th Birthday! That morning, we sent mak to DBKL Jalan Raja Laut for 'Rayhar Pre-Departure Gathering' before leaving for Hajj. Met lots of familiar faces and we really missed the good old time with Rayhar team. Rayhar - Highly recommended! Look no further if you plan to go to Mekah for Umrah or Hajj. Hoho. Pakteh and Makteh were there as well. We didnt stay long sbb still penat and went home sambung tdo. ZZzZzZZzz..

Later that afternoon, amik mak and went straight to Rayhar HQ to collect bags and other goodies for Jemaah Haji. Then balik rumah, masak mee bandung for dinner. Pakteh and Makteh joined us for dinner. Before they left home, all of us had a light supper at Restoran Steamboat Kak Eit4 - yummilicious ice blended to celebrate mak's birthday.

It's Deepavali Day. Mak and Imah headed home on tr4nsnasional bus to Siti4wan around 1215 from Jalan Duta. MrJ and I merewang to Munawwar4h at TTDI, then met K Mar and Kech overthere. Earlier K Mar asked us to join her for a trip to visit mangsa kebakaran at Sg Pench4la. Nak jd cerita, the tour leader is my colleague! Hoho. What a small world. Here are some pictures from the visit..

Lampu and cable pun leh cair due to the fire.

MrJ and I had early dinner @ S4ntai, just besides Munawwar4h.
Kech nak interframe :p

That's all. Nak menaip this entry pun penat. Phewww..

Emak-ku Mangsa Banjir!!!

I wanna blog about this yesterday but dont have the pics. So here it goes..

Tuesday, rain started pouring heavily from mid-day till magrib. Air started to naik slowly @ lower area. (I was in Kuantan when Imah texted me the news) Makcik Timah's house (mak's best friend, rumah satu jalan with ours tp selang 8 lot rumah) dah naik sampai paha and of course they began panicking. Mak and imah kemas semua barang2 penting, angkat almari atas meja etc. Our house air x naik lg at that point and our Kembara was removed to higher area.

That nite, ade kawan mak sekeluarga slept over at our house. Wednesday, 22nd (on MrJ's bday), mak, imah and the rest of penduduk in our neighbourhood dipindahkan (in a lorry!) ke pusat mangsa banjir @ Batu 8. Poor them. Honestly, I felt like laughing when I heard the news, the first time because our area (my house in particular) x penah banjir, let alone kene naik lori and jadi pelarian kat pusat mangsa-mangsa banjir. Tp bile teringat mak&imah penat kemas barang, kene tido ramai2 kat hall, I feel really bad coz I couldnt be there with them. Pictures below from mms Imah.

MB Ir Nizar just arrived at Pusat Banjir.

Mak menerima sumbangan dr MB. That's mak's head!
Semoga kita tabah selalu menerima dugaan Allah and Allah masukkan kita dr golongan yg dikasihi and diredhai selalu. Tepat sekali untuk merenung tafsir surah Al-Insyirah sebagai pelapang dada bila berada dalam kesulitan dan kepayahan.

Dengan nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang.
  1. أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ لَكَ صَدْرَكَ Bukankah Kami telah melapangkan untukmu dadamu?,
  2. وَوَضَعْنَا عَنْكَ وِزْرَكَ Dan Kami telah menghilangkan dari padamu bebanmu,
  3. الَّذِي أَنْقَضَ ظَهْرَكَ yang memberatkan punggungmu?
  4. وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ Dan Kami tinggikan bagimu sebutan (nama)mu.
  5. فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا Karena sesungguhnya sesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan,
  6. إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا sesungguhnya sesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan.
  7. فَإِذَا فَرَغْتَ فَانْصَبْ Maka apabila kamu telah selesai (dari sesuatu urusan), kerjakanlah dengan sungguh-sungguh (urusan) yang lain,
  8. وَإِلَى رَبِّكَ فَارْغَبْ dan hanya kepada Tuhanmulah hendaknya kamu berharap.

p/s - MrJ's name and MB Perak's name are identical (including surname!), except for very minor difference in spelling :-) Ada harapan aku nak jadi Datin Seri ni. Hehe.

MrJ's 26th Birthday!

Yesterday was MrJ's birthday! I came all the way from KL to Kuantan by flight, just to be with darling hubby on the eve of his 26th birthday! (Actually we both ade keje at Kertih/Paka the day after) Arrived around 6pm at Kuantan airport, MomInLaw and MrJ picked me up and we went straight to Masjid Negeri and waited there for Magrib. After Magrib, we headed to Secret Recipe and had a small celebration for the birthday boy. Here are some pictures @ SR.

Happy birthday dear, love you yesterday, today and forever :*

Almost bersawang already this blog eh! Hehe. Anyway, Eid Mubarak, Taqabbalallahuminna wa minkum!

Ok, quick updates on major events that happened for the past few weeks. Epoi is now safe and sound in Warsaw, pursuing his 1st year Medical Degree at Warsaw Medical University. He flew 5 days before Raya and definitely leaved my Mom in despair but she's tough tho. Alhamdulillah MrJ and I celebrated our 1st Syawal in Perak this year, xdela makku kesedihan menyambut raya berdua dengan imah je. Hoho. Here are some pictures taken at KLIA and Raya piccies courtesy of my 2megapx cameraphone, which is so not clear and crispy.

Raya @Perak without Epoi. Sob2..

Raye piccies @ Kuantan(3rd Syawal). Thanks Bonda for still continuing the tradition of distributing RMraya to us tho we are now about to become Mummy and Abi. Mwahs! Below, nieces, Hanis and Nadia. Erk, kantoi pakai baju same ngan baju kat KLIA. Hoho. I just have 1 baju raye this year. Dont have any mood to shopping spree on clothes since I only fit in XXXL karung guni and nothing else.

As for now, I'm about to enter my 24th week. Hnyb is SUPER active. SO.VERY.active. Hnyb kicks mummy mostly at night, and between 10-12pm (office hour). Oh yeah, kalo dengar tazkirah/kuliah after magrib, this baby is super alert. Ustaz start bg salam Hnyb dah tendang2. Bagus anak mummy ni. Mummy Abi doakan hnyB jadi anak soleh/solehah. Aminnn..

p/s- went to my 5-month checkup last Saturday, Dr S3ri suggested that hnyB is a *tut* but have to confirm again next month :-) And thanks to the lady @ PCMC who forgotted to fax my GL for physio class, I was as happy as a bee knowing that I dont have to asnwer Ms Ning's Q - 'Did you do all the homework I've given?' NO.
