Tak kusangka kau hadir di hidupku,
Kau penuhi semua impian hidupku,
Now you know why I'm into Nasi Kandar!
Trying to coax her to boast her first tooth!
Celebrated dad-in-law's birthday at his abode with tiramisu "heavenly" cake from Suchan and buckets of finger lickin' good chicken as s-i-l just got discharged from hospital that very day ....So...dinner is deferred sine die
I'm guilty of leaving this blog of mine filled to the brim with dusts and cob webs.....Ah well....blame it on work....that's the easiest way out. But, that's the fact!
Anyway, a short update on Hajar. I've not posted on her milestones for eons! She flipped over when she was 3 1/2 months and now she's swimming and moving around without lifting her butt! Amazing.....! She can recognize her siblings and of course parents and cries if strangers pick her up. She would respond with smiles and cooing and giggles from afar...But NO TOUCHY!
Enjoy this terribly short video clip of Hajar!
This trip back to Kedah was different from our usual quickie trips of the mandatory hi's and byes. We actually stayed there for six days and five nights! It was over the Eidul Adha and Christmas period! We planned it months ahead but fate had it that wifey and I had to work right till the eve of Eidul Adha - we had to cut short the trip to six days rather than eight days planned.....Man proposeth, God disposeth!
Kedah or to be more specific Kupang, Baling is wifey's parents' hometown. Wifey was born there but grew up in Penang, Alor Star and Kuala Lumpur.
I remember the first time visiting Baling post married life. Then, I was still working in Johor Bahru and father-in-law insisted that we went back as a couple for the rituals of meeting wifey's both sets of grandparents...Drove up to Kuala Lumpur alone one Saturday afternoon after work as wifey was already residing in KL (yes we were a weekend couple for close to the whole time of wifey's pregnancy with our first born, Khadijah!) and father in law drove us back to Kedah upon my arrival from JB....Then, there was no Seberang Jaya - Kulim highway..So the journey took us close to seven hours from KL! My first thought was - this place is so remote and rural. I didn't enjoy the journey at all since it was all dark the whole of our journey. We arrived at the wee hours of the morning!
