ALONE BUT NOT LONELY...

Feeling FRESH..sipping my own teh tarik in my kitchen , it's quite cold this morning, I let the kitchen sliding door open.... facing the 'great wall' at my backyard .... the greenberry tree is only left with its greenish leaves, the grape tree is still with no grapes ( hopeless to see its fruits , the season is gone !! ) .....all I could see is an empty space with an empty storeroom and a serene , quiet neighbourhood in the early Friday morning .... ( Friday is a holiday, most arabs wake up very late coz they have their night outing/party until dawn...)

Not to mention, my mimi and sofie are also still asleep...it's 7.50am ( as I'm typing this ).. izzat went for his 'sleepover party' ( playing pc games until dawn ) at Nuh' s house in Suweileh..he went straight to Nuh's house after his futsal craze at Al Hussein Park....

Basically, I'm all alone .... it's been my routine and I'm not complaining.... (Hari ni nak cerita merepek sikit ,lama dah tak merepek !!! )

Somewhere back in Kemaman, I was always wishing that I had a great time alone, no 'running' and rushing 'working ' like crazy..( I'm a full-time housewife, if you're too, then you know what I'm talking about...)...sometimes I had '15- 20 TO DO ' things listed and pasted on my car dashboard... I started my day by sending Izzat and Maya to schools ( 2 different schools with 2 opposite directions, one on the way to Kerteh and the other on the way to Kuantan... ), by the way , most of the time, I'd stop at any stall to buy their breakfast..... ( never had time to prepare it !! )....

Almost noon and there I was, still driving my car , searching for a vacant parking lot in the 'yellow town' , kemaman... needed to get to Nabilah Clinic to 'replenish ' my blood pressure and diabetes pills......usually if I got the parking space, I'd get all kinds of medicines and vitamins so that I won't have to come again and agian and spin my head to spot an empty parking lot.... Kemaman is booming but parking lots is way far from ample.....

At 2pm , I fetched Maya from school ( I am a loving mother, even if maya had extra classes at 3, I'd let her be home for a while, eating ( lunch bought from my favourite restaurant in Kampung Mak Cili.... somewhere in kemaman lah ...) , bathing and went right back to school... however, I wasn't all the time a 'loving/caring ' mother especially when I was terribly busy with other stuff.... I told her to stayback, I'd fetch her back at 6.30pm when she finished all her 'business' at school... I remember at one time, I got really mad with the teacher in charged of the debate team.. maya was one of the debators and they even practised until late at night... the teacher is a male teacher and he said he would send maya home when the practice was over... On NO, NO , NO... I wouldn't let any man, even if he's her teacher to send my daughter late at night in his car..... NO!!! So, I went to wait for her ..she said it would finish by 10.30pm...I waited and waited until 11....still not there... It was at 11.15 or something that she finally 'emerged' from her class together with 2 other girls , a boy and the teacher..... Maya knew that I was angry ( I was and still am a punctual mommy ).... I told her to withdraw from the debate team ....actually I was so exhausted that day...and waiting is my number ONE hatred.... She didn't say anything...That was not the first time that I 'persuaded ' her not to be an active girl at school...( I hate being so active before, I wished I was an ordinary school girl with lots of fun at achool...), It was like , I wanted Maya to make my wish come true...I wanted her to only concentrate on her studies( she's doing so great already at that time )...but did she ever listen to my advice ?? NOPE...she was elected to be a prefect ( I agreed at last but warned her not to accept any offer to be the HEAD GIRL..she didn't tell me until very late of the year that she was appointed to be the Treasurer of the prefect body.... Back to the debate ..... the next morning I told her she could be in the debate team but, but please,please be on time .... I couldn't bear waiting........

Woooow it's been an hour now that I have done my 'merepek' part...mimi and sofie are already enjoying their breakfast( only mimi enjoys her teh tarik sofie seldom has breakfast ).... fried kueh teow with teh tarik , mimi only has bread....

It's this fine and calmy day that will definitely stuck in my mind .... being back again in Kemaman ....ohhhh well.... I can now imagine...early in the morning, sending Izzat and MIMI to 2 different schools....hope to get mimi enrolled in a school that is on the way to Kuantan.... or get Izzat and Mimi on the school buses..... EASIER isn't it ???? (I've tried before but as I told you I am a loving and caring Mommy.. It's sad to see my darlings came back from school with somekind of heavy sweat smell and the look at their faces..PITY them...let me the only one who's tired not those darlings of mine.... the time will come when they have to be by their own..( now, I could see how maya is 'running and rushing' to settle her life by herself)



Before I go, yesterday I made this 'oreo cheese' dessert ( got from dapur maklang . simple and yummy . tq maklang !!) and I got my flight tickets paid but I'll get the tickets tomorrow....get to keep on packing.....I just can't wait to fly Mak , I'm coming home !!!!!!!!!!!!

kak elle,

tulah taktau sempat ke tak nak kejar ke singapore tahun ni...

entahlah mungkin sebab mengapa I resigned my job adalah sebab nak jadi a full-time housewife, tu yang rasa macam nak buat semua but memang tak terbuat semuanya..
