Let's talk about Raya already!

I better update while I still have the mood, kan?

How's your Raya? My Raya was so-so. I would normally celebrate Raya morning here in KL and then around 10am lepas dah beraya dgn my parents, akan bertolak ke Jerantut to hubby's side of the family. But since this Raya, my mom decided that she wants to visit my grand-aunt in Temerloh and then to my MIL house, both Zul and me decided to go back Jerantut a bit earlier so that on second day Raya, we could all go to Kuantan together to visit my aunty there.

So, off we went to Jerantut on Wednesday night after iftar and as expected,it was bumper to bumper jam at Karak. Letih tau, walaupun bukan aku yg drive kan. But it's a torture la duduk je dlm keta, dah la tengah period cramps and sakit pinggang tak hengat. To make it worst, ada plak a group of boys in another car at the right lane main mercun. Yes, you read it right. Dia bleh nyalakan sumbu mercun tu pastu baling ke udara, meletup2 bunyik. Nak je aku seligi bebudak ni..dah boring sgt tahap gaban la tu.

Thursday masih puasa, tapi aku yg uzur ni kejap2 buka peti ais cari minum. So panass. Sambil prepare2 apa2 yg patut and waiting for Zul's siblings to arrive from Kuantan. Raya morning was madness gak la crowd yg dtg, tak berhenti. But between 1pm - 4pm tu takde orang la, maybe sebab semayang Jumaat and org tunggu lepas Asar baru start berjalan balik. My family arrived dekat senja, sembang2 then dinner. Patin tempoyak, sup tulang, sambal kerang, sambal bilis are among the dishes cooked by MIL. Lepas makan, Zul melayan anak2 buah semua main mercun and my family spent the night at the hotel near Jerantut.

Second day Raya, we bid goodbye to Zul's family to meet Ayah at the hotel sbb nak gerak sesama ke Kuantan. And Tiyah's car died. Abang's family is using Tiyah's car. So kononnya kereta aku nak rescue kereta Tiyah la tapi lepas jump start, and cubaan tukar bateri, Abang ter silap letak bateri aku balik (negative vs positive) and my car could not be started. Berpeluh gak la we all (Zul la mostly..sian my baby ni). So Zul arranged for both card to be towed to town and Tiyah's car managed to be fixed within half an hour but my car kena duduk workshop la sehari. My uncle came all the way from Kuantan to fetch us and off we went to Kuantan.

Jadinya, instead of sampai in Kuantan tengahari, we only arrived in Kuantan at 4.30pm. Makan2, and the boys (hubby, cousins and Uncle) sempat lagik pegi memancing kat kebun my Uncle. Us girls had a great time catching up, tak puas rasanya. Lepas maghrib, we all gerak ke hotel in Kuantan and my auntie's family pun ikut and sambung sembang kat sana. Really, I wish I stayed longer in Kuantan. The next day lepas breakfast, my nephews dah terjun masuk kolam and I carpool with my parents and Tiyah to go back to KL while hubby balik ke Jerantut with my cousin to get my car from the workshop. Mmg sgt drama la this Raya dgn kereta Tiyah yg meragam tu.

Sampai KL on Sunday afternoon, rehat kejap and malam tu followed my parents to a family friend's house or rather penthouse kat S.uria Stonor. Perghh, mmg lawa ok.. mmg seronok bila berduit ni, semua bleh dapat. Enjoyed the food and the breathtaking view kat private pool dia.


I started work on Tuesday, mmg rasa malas je nak bangun tapi bila dah sampai office mmg tak sempat nak ngantuk sbb keje berlambak2..risau je ni sempat ke nak uruskan semua before I go for leave starting 6th Oct to Sabah for my SIL's convocation. Funny story there, she booked our tickets before confirming her convocation session as she was confident that her session will be on Saturday 9th October and turns out her session is Sunday 10th October at 10am, which is our flight time back to KL. Luckily she had booked for my parents in law to stay longer in Sabah, they will only be back by 13th Oct, I think. Jadinya, aku dgn Zul ni pegi Sabah mmg semata2 berjalan2 la dari 7/10 sampai 10/10 tu..aduhai apa nak buat. Nak ubah flight ticket pun will cost me and hubby Rm500 each which is more than our flight ticket price. Tak payah ler.

Hey, I got my first cheque from Nuffnang during Raya and dah cash in kan. RM51 je tapi jakun okk haha. Alhamdulillah. Thanks for your support to this blog of mine walaupun dah jarang berupdate. I love you la!
