Masih ramai yang cuti ka.
Anyway. Selamat Hari Raya. Just got back to work today. So masih lemau. Not helping is that I am still loya2 dari my plane flight. Hehehe. Puked a lot in front of Aziz, and he was like .. "eiiii Mommy ni.. naseb baik la tak kena Aziz." . It was a smooth flight actually but I think I was not feeling too well due to the many air gas consumed during raya. I am also a little bit sick of kek lapis at the moment.
But I am getting ahead of myself. Didnt take a lot of photos, dont know why exactly. Raya tahun ni pon I rase macam kurang meriah at Balingian. Maybe adik beradik my husband semua tadek kut. But on the upside it doesnt take a long time to wait for bilik air to be available. LOL.
Amik gamba berempat pon tak sempat. Which is a shame. Maybe when pergi beraya somewhere this weekend kut I'll try. I am not big on taking pictures of myself so I always forgot when I am tired or harried from carrying Saif in my arm and feeding Aziz.
Gambar di first raya. Tu pon I suruh duduk situ tangkap gamba then I forgot about myself. LOL. Saif tu semua orang ingat girl sebab baju die macam baju kurung, tapi it is actually a baju Melayu kurta. Hehe.
Raya dish it was rendang and ketupat palas and laksa sarawak. I macam malas nak rebus I punye instant ketupat nasi sebab ade laksa sarawak, so it was ok je. Then later pon I pergi beraya rumah sape tah die ade serve ketupat nasi. So I was set!
That being said, I am kinda homesick of Johor raya food, tengok la weekend ni if I nak buat lodeh for my own consumption. Huhu. You people may called it lontong, it is sayur lodeh for us. I am not too clear on the difference though I noticed an abundance of vegetable in sayur lodeh.
Kek lapis on display. That is just one of 2 bekas kek. Yang paling sedap is kek milo yang dekat kiri sekali where Saif hands are holding the penutup. Semua pon sedap. The thing I like about raya in Sarawak, you can bet all of their kek lapis are made by themselves. Kueh raya mungkin tak, but kek lapis ye.
Lepas solat raya and bersalam-salaman we went to beraya around the kampung. I selalu cuak motor2 ni kalau bawak laju atas titi around the kampung ni.
Sebab raya tahun ni tak lama pon at Sarawak, by raya ketiga we headed back to Bintulu. My husband punye family belah ayah die have a big family gathering on Monday. But our car broke down in the middle of the dirt road.
|The dirt road and our car yang dipinjamkan.|
We were worried because 1. it was not our car 2. the cost. But the owner was nice about it and the repair surprisingly tak mahal pon. So small blessings in mishap. The kids sedap je tido dalam kereta masa kereta tu rosak, in the middle of nowhere. Nasib baik we convoy with my MIL and PIL. So the kids and I got into my PIL car while my husband waited there for the tow truck. The tow truck cost is exorbitant but cannot be helped because it was raya weekend and jauh dalam hutan. Huhu.
On Monday tu ade gathering satu family of my PIL. Kira my husband datuk got about 11 kids, and most if not all are gathered at Li Hua Hotel for raya feast and just fun. It was interesting. I have a small family and being in the room where most of the people there are my husband cousins is overwhelming. Aziz had fun and we even managed to win 2 lucky draw prizes.
Dekat rumah atuk die pon Aziz and his 2 cousins had the ultimate time running around so I have to say my kid had fun. Saif pon jadi attention as ramai je offer nak dukung. At one time he was the main entertainment for a group of guests. Suke la anak aku tu.
It was a good hari raya but nothing beat home even though rupa rumah sekarang macam tongkang pecah and I think my husband is wearing his ultimate patience hat jaga 2 kids sebab nursery tutup. I asked him to call a cleaning service to clean the house this Friday because frankly we don't have the time and he have a lot on his plate jugak.
