Kisah Kami Balik Kampung January 2014

Durians, Cold weather and Botak

Our cuti started on Tuesday, so we headed back east to Pasirmas after Suboh that day, stopped at few stop pits and arrived 15minutes to 5pm. It was a long journey.Enough said. But truely worth it once arrived :)

The ambience and environment in the kampung is really indescribable. The serenity and the sense of everything moving a pace slower really makes the inner side of you surrender to the beauty of simple life. Bangun pagi pagi pas suboh, dok kt tangga minum kopi panas. Sidai kain dlm embun, gigil gigil. Pastu keluar naik kereta, tingkap buka habis cr nasi sarapan nasi berlauk ayam gulai atau nasi kerabu ayam bakar yg cuma rm1.50 sebungkus. Kuih mcm2 jenis boleh dpt rm1 5biji byknya. A true laidback. Its like in a totally different world. Yang best, keluar jalan kesana sini, tak perlu bayar toll :)

The coldness was really nice actually. They recorded night times reached as low as 20degs. And morning showers was really impossible..not until 11.30am :p Sejukk...brrrrr :) this was really unusual actually. In July it would be scorching hot as early as 9.30am!!!

The boys really did enjoyed this. Relax and easy vacation. Alhmdulillah.

We had nice pulut durians, a bbq nite gala, got amsyars tresses cut off and balded :) My coleslaw and Kenny Rogers style bbq recipe was a hit.Yeay!! Hubby's nenek who is bedridden pun seemed happy during the bbq night. It was really a great feeling to see precious ppl in your loved ones life happy. Happpiness is really a contagious outspread ;p

We also had a maulid kenduri in hubby's cousin's place. Ayam kg goreng, solok lada/tene and nice gulai daging w umbut was served. Mmg best, sebab im the foreigner (org luar) so i just did the light jobs and did not have to cook..hehe. And most nicest treat of all for mommy was a great full Body massage..for only rm30.Legaa.. Hehehe.
Alhmdulillah everything was as planned. Simple and nice just to my likings :)

Dating at Rantau Panjang

This was our balik kampung routine so far. hehehe. Sejak the boys don't mind being left with paksu and tokpa, we had this shopping spree as routine. Bukan nak beli apa pun, saja2 cuci mata, mkn nasi air sedap/ kuey teow sup and cendol. Makan makan lokching and eskrim murah. Hehehehe.. Mundok was closed due to the flood and almost all the shops were ruined. Rantau panjang was affected as well but was OK when we were there. There was a fire which ruined some part of the bazaar before. The ruins were still there but the portion involved was so small that it didn't really amputate the business of Rantau Panjang to resume as usual :)

The catch overthere? Some chocolates from the duty free, some nice cotton blankets and several fareeda-like tudungs for rm17-rm20 each, yeay!! :) Daddy got some trousers and bought a shirt for his grandmother's brother. Aiyoh..pnjgnya grandmother's short datuk saudara :) Favorite datuk saudara sbnrnya :)

Our fav each time :)

Gaya mcm pengantin baru ke? Hehehehe

Back to KL via Cameron Highlands

Saying goodbye was really heart throbbing :'( After 5days of all the enjoyment, we had to come back to reality :p We weren't in a rush so daddy took a turn to Cameron via Lojing on the way back, and of course it was nice to go back through Cameron. Sambil menyelam minum air :) 

The ambient was so cold i guess aroung 15degC kot. Maybe because of the monsoon change as well. Well, Cameron is always mommy's favorite place. But going up via Lojing really took a toll on us when Amsyar threw up in the car, followed by Iman afterwards, Bukan nk kata anak anak, mommy pun nak muntah. Maybe due to we had a late lunch afterwards in Tapah as well. Perut dh masuk angin.

Cameron was not that busy that day although it was a Sunday. And we stopped a few core places like Al-Mashoor Strawberry Farm, Kea Farm Market, and Brinchang. Bought nice keledek madu and few jams and tea and headed down. Nak stop for scones at one of the tea houses, Iman was already blue, nak muntah, so we just drove back home via Tapah :) Yelah, dah nearly 6hrs in the car. Tapah to our house (Saujana Putra) was only 2.5hrs drive.

Back to school.

The trip was fun but Iman missed two days of school and his school's Maulidurrasul celebration. Ruginyaa..So, after cuti, need to freshen up with what has been left out and set a new clear target lah. Well, same goes to mommy as well in fact :) Iman seems happy and determined doing homework with daddy's supervision. Truely a daddy's boy. Dari bgn pagi, mandi siap sampai sikat rambut pun daddy yg buat :) . I'll need your spirit my boy to start working again :) And finally after 3weeks of school, Iman got his uniform in his size. You're so petite actually..hehehe. XS pun labuh. I always see him as already all grown up, but yet still my baby. Well, i think all mothers do :p

Blurry due to taken from the car ;p

Till then,

Have a lovely day my lovelies :)
