Back In Kolumpo

Spent the past 6 days in the Land of Budu (as Nani calls it). Three days in Ramadhan and three days in Syawal.


I think the kids had loads of fun, meeting up with their cousins. Azrul has a big family. There are 6 siblings, 21 nieces and nephews (minus ours) and 2 grandchildren. *serious* The oldest niece is 29 years old and the youngest nephew is 5 years old. And this year, it's a full house! So , imagine the chaos! :) We were visiting - mostly eating (breaking fast and supper) , playing fireworks and we even got to slip in a session of homework. Very productive. I loike. :)


Azrul also got to meet up with a few RMC buddies too - Dr. Mohan, Suah and Jem. The former is attached to the local Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia, Kubang Kerian and the two latters were married to a Kelantanese. In fact, we meet up twice - once at the famous White House and the other in Kemaman Kopitiam in Kota Bharu. Since Bibik Parmi was not around this balik kampung trip, the late night escapades were accompanied by the whole troop - Khadra, Khaleeq and Khaleeda. Since it was pretty late, the kids got a little cranky and wanted to sleep. After a quick snack, yours truly decided to be the Mak Guard in the car with them. Kasi chan la, biar dia borak sat.. *BTW, the keropok lekor at Kemaman Kopitiam was awesome. But, nothing beats White House's half-boiled eggs!*

Syawal was filled with sibling's open houses - Abang Azhar's , Kak Jan's and Kak Ani's. Abang Amran even ordered gulai of two whole kambing too. So food was aplenty. And they deserve a post on their own. :)

At the end of 3rd Syawal, we made our way back to KL and arrived in KLIA last night around 9pm. Were chauffeured by Miss Kira back to Pondok Azlul for a quick Raya stop before driving back home.

Now, there's loads of laundry to be dealt with. I have one load already hung out to dry, another in the machine and at least two more to go. A heap of laundry to be folded from last time and the suitcases to finish unpacking. Interject with the need to bathe the kids and prepare some edible to fill their tummies. Got loads to do, so, I should really run..

Oh, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Maaf Zahir Batin.
