Penang Trip - Day 3

Kejap je dah Day 3 kan? Banyak sangat tempat makan nak try tapi tak dapat pergi. Yang I nak sangat bawak Hubbs ialah kedai roti canai kari ikan dekat Teluk Bahang yang I pergi last year tu. Tapi macam malas pulak nak drive ke sana. Georgetown pun tak habis ukur lagi!

For breakfast we went to Transfer Road for the famous roti canai kari ayam and roti bakar telur goyang. Parked right in front of Nasi Kandar Line Clear. Tapi parking situ mahal. So, janganlah park situ ye. Orang kat gerai tu agak ramai. Aliyah dah ajak pergi kedai lain but I persisted. Nak jugak rasa. Dalam 10 minutes, dapat meja. Alhamdulillah. Service sangat laju. Aliyah kata berbaloi tunggu sebab sedap. Ok, bukan sedap tapi excellent!
 Roti Bakar Telur Goyang - dibakar atas arang. Lepas tu pecahkan 2 biji telur separuh masak. Terrer betul uncle to masak telur. Perfect!  Roti banjir dengan kari ayam. Tengok ayam punya besar. Gravy memang sedap lah!
On the way back to our car, sempat ambik gambar di street art di Odeon. …

Penang Trip - Day 2

My travel buddies memberikan kerjasama yang sangat memberangsangkan. Mungkin sebab itinerary semuanya asyik makan kot 😁. On Day 2, we had breakfast just nearby - at Kassim Nasi Kandar. Just roti canai saja. OK lah juga. They serve kuah dhal dan kari ayam. I suka sebab I don't really like kuah kari ikan. Tapi teh ais tak berapa best.

Lepas tu we went to Bukit Bendera. Orang agak ramai. Tapi tak seramai bila kita orang dah nak balik. To me - nothing much kat atas tu. We went into Owl Museum yang mahal tapi nothing much. But we tried the famous desserts. Very nice 😋. There were other attractions but not to our liking. Sekali naik saja cukup. Lain kali tak nak naik lagi.  Agak seriau bila train stop kejap. Tinggi tu...  Macam naik LRT kat KL je.  Meh I belanja gambar suwit dengan Hubbs😆.  Inside Owl Museum...  Desserts yang sedap! Cendol & Mango apa tah. Ada scoops of ice creams dalam tu.
Balik dari Bukit Bendera tak berapa larat nak cari nasi kandar yang sedap. Punyalah terik …

Penang Trip - Day 1

I will share the itinerary I made. It's more of "jalan-jalan cari makan" trip. And we found out that there are so much food to try but so little time. 3D/2N trip is just not enough to explore Georgetown let alone Penang.

We stayed at Neo+ Hotel in Georgetown. It's a spanking new hotel. So everything was still very nice and shiny 😊. Service was very good. Location also quite good. We could've just walked around jumping from street to street. But then, at times, we chose to drive rather than walk. Pemalas namanya!
 We reached Penang at around 2pm. First stop is Nasi Kandar Tajuddin Hussain. I decided to skip Line Clear as I have tried that before (errr... tak lah sedap sangat). Parking was bit of a problem, so we tapau the food.  Lepas check-in, duduk bersila atas lantai dan makan nasi kandar. One of the best nasi kandar I have ever tasted. Yang famous ialah Ayam Masak Ros. I expected the gravy to be red but looked like curry instead. The taste was heavenly! I bel…

Awesome Penang Trip

Our little family went for a short vacation to Penang - from Tuesday to Thursday. What an awesome time we had! I buat itinerary memang focus utama ialah makan. Pergi Penang kan, apa lagi yang best 😁. And my two other travel partners sangat cooperative (makan punya pasal!), we actually achieved about 80% of the plan. Yang penting, we managed to eat some of those famous dishes ie Nasi Kandar Tajuddin Hussein, Roti Bakar Telur Goyang and Roti Canai banjir Kari Ayam Transfer Road, and the fruits desserts at the top of Bukit Bendera.
Our 3-day overview...  Start of journey...   Roof top Neo+ Penang...  We were so impressed with this bike rental system.  Kat belakang tu ada artis buat photoshoot 😝  Waahhh... ada augmented reality kat Komtar.  Beratur beli bunga belakang Aci 😀 Balik KL lalu Jambatan ke-2. Best sebab tak banyak kereta.

Izzul's Akad Nikah

Setelah bertunang 2 bulan, my nephew Izzul nikah hari Sabtu. Kahwin dah budak kecik tu :). Pagi yang agak huru-hara pada mulanya. Lepas Subuh siapkan food for my mother, lepas tu terus pergi uruskan dia. Lepas tu balik semula ke rumah siap-siap. 7.45am nak kumpul, 8am tepat nak gerak ke Merlimau. Bila sampai jam 7.50am di rumah my Angah, bakal pengantin tengah mengunyah sarapan. Ish, ish... Jam 8.30 baru gerak.

My SIL Kak Ros couldn't make it. Walaupun dia dah sihat sikit tapi tak dibenarkan pergi takut nanti sakit balik. Kesian dia. I janji nak buat video call masa akad nikah. Siap practise lagi :). Mula gerak sampailah selesai, I buat live report kat WA group family. Alhamdulillah sampai before 11am. Rehat di rumah yang dia orang sediakan kejap, lepas tu terus ke rumah pengantin.  Hantaran. Tiga dulang saja :)  Ekin tengah cuba pinkan brooch pada songkok dengan penuh kesukaran.  Bakal pengantin :)  Sebak juga tengok Kak Ros tak dapat pergi.  Berkumpul di Plaza Tol Jasin. Pakcik-…

If He Were Around...

There is this ginger cat at my mother's house. He's about 1 year old I think. When he was a kitten, he was fat and round and always scared of humans. Along with his other 2 siblings, they were always in the drain at the side of the house. The drain is usually dry. But then, during the rainy season end last year, the drain at times would be filled with water. The 2 other siblings didn't make it, only the ginger kitten survived. Barely. I saved him from the drain twice. He hung at the side of the drain in the rushing cold water.

My Kak Long calls him Boy. My Angah calls him Bulat. At the time, he was not "friendly" with us, hanging around always with his mother Si Putih. About 6 months ago, a dog came in the night and ravaged the mother. The ginger survived but traumatized. From that day on, he opened up to us humans. I guess because he was scared of the dog. He couldn't eat in peace, always cautiously looking behind his back.

The name Bulat finally stuck on hi…

These Few Days

Nothing much, as usual. Have submitted Aliyah's choice of package to the school office. One important thing settled. Baru nak mula beli barang-barang back to school. School books belum beli. Queue nampak sangat panjang semalam. Maybe tomorrow. Shoes and uniforms semalam dah beli. Mengucap panjang masa bayar. Two pairs of shoes plus socks = RM89.00. Kasut sekolah sepasang sekarang dalam RM38.00. Uniform cuma beli sepasang sebab yang lama elok lagi. Tapi uniform pengakap kena beli baru sebab yang lama dah well-used dan seluar dah singkat. Total semua plus tudung = RM189.00.

I read somewhere back to school cost per child nowadays is around RM350.00. Very true. Beg sekolah, stationery, school books... Tu belum masuk additional reference books later, tuition fees plus materials... Sigh... Tak apa lah. Belajar consider fisabilillah kan. Insyaallah. Whatever we spend as parents ada returnnya nanti.

Anyway, hari ni waktu makan tak betul sikit. I cooked and we had lunch at 12pm. Itu kira b…

Result Day

Finally, the D-day. Very rare to face such an important day without Hubbs around. But then, I was very contented. I have done my part as a mother, and for the past 7 months as a "single parent". Rasanya dah habis baik dah. And I believe Aliyah has also done her part. So, whatever results she receives will reflect the efforts she has put in. Sebelum pergi ambik results, spray perfume yang Hubbs bagi cari semangat :).

Her results? A mixed feeling. She got 2As. Only. She improved tremendously on her Maths. Science? I read memang ramai yang tak score. Just that I was quite disappointed that she could've gotten good results for BM and English but just got average. Also, Sejarah and Geografi yang buat project work tu I think patut score A terus. But she didn't. She got B. Actually, I have a feeling she won't be getting A for those subjects sebab masa dia buat project paper tu dia buat perangai sikit. She refused to let me check on her work. Bila tanya, semua OK. She pr…
