..was fun..sort of..
papa turned 33.
on friday night we went to SACC Mall, saje jalan2. aku ambik kesempatan pg cari bday card utk papa. last minute beb.. while i was browsing through so many cards, darling was with me, greeting everyone she saw with a big grin on her face. funny and cute. dalia and ziyad? with papa, looking for cheap cd's on sale nearby the memory lane store.
then we went to secret recipe. i thought of buying us a simple dinner (my savings were limited, though). with a bowl of a noodle, a plate of spaghetti bolognaise (shared between my dalia and ziyad), a plate of garden salad, a saucer of spring roll, 2 glasses of watermelon juice, and 2 plain water. last but not least, a slice of cake with a single candle on it. it was simple, but meaningful. though i didn't use all my savings (which was only 100, coz papa belanja separuh) it was a fun night. we decided to celebrate a little earlier for that night papa nak tido awal. he had plans for the next day, perhaps.
on saturday, the big day, we woke up early. i made special breakfast for papa. also got biscotti which i ordered few days earlier (and hid inside my almari pinggan mangkuk). well, unfortunately papa tak gemar sangat biscotti ni. luckily my kids love it. go to this site, you'll know how it looks like. dah siap mandi, kami keluar. at first papa tak cakap pun nak pegi mana. thought of heading to KL but the traffic made us change direction. we headed south. melalui KLIA, tgk hiruk pikuk kemeriahan F1, polis trafik merata sana sini. lalu belakang kompleks bunga raya, dapat tgk satu, dua bijik aeroplane nak landing, then menghala ke LCCT. cuci2 mata then terus ke simpang empat enstek. well, ke PD la tu..mana lagi. since we had quite heavy breakfast, we didn't stop for lunch. tgk air laut, jalan2 je.
around 4pm baru terasa lapar. but hell, we stopped banyak kali juga sebab dalia kejap2 kata nak berak, tapi tak berak. yad lak pantang kata nak gi toilet, mesti nak kencing..haru sungguh. then, we headed to Teluk Kemang. bukan nak tgk pantai ya..but we stop kat satu bus stop, to quench our thirst dengan fresh sugarcane juice. ooohhhh...sedap. layan nasi lemak, tauhu sumbat dan karipap. memang sedap...simple, murah dan sedap.
dalam perjalanan balik, subhanallah hujan lebat melanda. i said, i couldn't drive in heavy rain like that, even with my glasses. memang tak nampak!! kalau aku, sure dah cari port berenti, lepak sampai hujan reda. sib baik papa nampak. baru upgrade cermin mata la kata..risau juga. but then we stopped kejap. kat mana ntah, lupa lak nama hentiannya tu. we arrived home around 8pm. mandi, maghrib dan makan ringan2. around 9.30pm, anak2 dah lena. hehehe...
the next day, Sunday April 5.
bangun pagi, had breakfast at KFC. ha ha ha...
lepas zohor we headed to kl. as usual, papa won't stick around at home long. kids pun sama. selagi papa ada kat rumah, macam ada yang tak kena. terkinja-kinja sana sini.
straight to Pavilion. papa teringin nak makan teppanyaki. on the way, kids were asleep. so, kiranya bila sampai je Pavillion, depa dah fully recharged la. memang hyper. but we didn't go straight to teppanyaki. pusing2, jalan2, tgk F1 promo, tgk PDI models on a runaway etc. tak lupa juga, gi toilet..hehehe..sementara tunggu kakak, abg yad dan papa kat toilet, darling dgn mama main kejar2. of course mama takleh lelarian sangat. tapi, apa lah sangat larian darling nak compare dgn langkah mamanya, kan...dah penat kononnya, darling spot a chair and terus ajak nak duduk. since she was so cute and happy and beautiful that day, i managed to snap this:-
dah puas cuci mata kat Pavillion, we headed to Putrajaya. kitorang memang suka ke Putrajaya. besides, my kids loves to jog. we went to this place called Pullmann. sumpah tak tahu apa kejadahnya tempat tu..hotel ke, apa ke. but behind it, ada swimming pool, open to public kot. ada tasik, leh boating etc. rasanya tempat sukan air la...sebab ada podium. cantik. tak ramai yang tahu lagi tempat ni, rasanya. except surely for Putrajayans...
overall, seeing and watching my loved ones happy, i'm happy too....
Happy Birthday, dear!! I love you.
