GLAD IT'S OVER...

Bowling

I was busy lately with the Company's Ladies Staff & Spouse Club, 7th Sports Carnival which has been held from 18 Jan to 21 Jan recently. Fuhh... so so very very glad & happy that it's over and I really need a good, tight sleep.

Dreaming

The organizing committee has been preparing ever since the President, Puan Sri Datin Sri announced it at the previous Sports Carnival which was held in Kota Kinabalu. Makk ooi.. when we got the news, everyone was not excited pun, because all were scared of the policy, terms and regulations in Vietnam, plus commitment from locals. But our Club Advisor was so confident and firm, she's a high risk taker too. Sangat committed.. Ahaaa... actually I was only busy during the Carnival, only the whole week last week. Yang busy all this while were those in the Secretariat Team la, as usual. I don't ever like doing the paper work, contracting, event & management and so on. And therefore I volunteered for the hardcore jobs & all the field works. Prrgghhh... padan muka ni. Tapi seronok jugak..

Sleeping In Class

There were 17 contigents from various states in Malaysia, plus Indonesia and Afirica. This event was the first time been organized outside Malaysia. 3 games been contested- Badminton, Bowling & Dart.

Darts

I was the Liaison Officer for Kuantan. Fuhh... lucklily the Head of Contigent was a simple lady. Tak banyak hal la. Actually, most of them were my hubby's ex-colleague pun. Our Advisor pun tau, so she made me to take charge of this group. Sonang kojo jugak tu. Ha ha... but all of us knew... main games 20% je, but yang lebih tu SHOPPING!!! Mau taknya... datang satu beg sorang, time balik 3-4 bags per person. Pastu pulak, ada yang extend 1 night. As advised by HQ KL, we only entertain those who extend 1 day. Lain tu... at own arrangement lah..

Shopping 2

Yang hiccups-nya time nak balik la, time nak ferry all the participants to the airport. Masa sampai ok la beg tak banyak. Sorang satu or dua. But masa nak balik, 3-4 bags per person. Pranngggg... kena tambah bus/taxi lagi. Tu tak pe lagi, excess luggage toksah cite la.. Ada yang excess 30kg per person. USD 3 per kg tu. Nasib baik our MAS Station Officer, Encik Rafi, was very very helpful. Dia kasi la kurang sikit. Muka2 amoi2 Vietnam tu toksah cite la, bila depa2 ni dapat bayar kurang excess luggage tu. Pasal la.. janji dapat le discount untuk excess luggage tu. Kalau tak, macam tak berbaloi je nyopping kat Vietnam ni. 

Vacation 2

Apa2 pun, we are so glad & proud because the President, Puan Sri Datin Sri was so happy with the organization/hosting the event and for the successful completion of the biyearly event, albeit been thru with so many barriers & difficulties dealing with authorities, contracting, policy etc etc here in Vietnam.

WHAT WE DID LAST (FEW) WEEKS...

Haa.. tak perasan langsung Zharif ada homework masa cuti sekolah. He has to write a diary/journal la konon, cite apa dia buat during school holiday tu... Prrgghhh.. bukak folder sebelum pi sekolah on Monday, 8th Jan tu... ehek... apa note ni??? Prrgghh.. mak nak cuti sakan, keje sekolah anak tak tengok pun. Luckly I managed to take few shots in Malaysia. Hubby was a bit mad then, too, because I keep forgetting to recharge the camera. Dapat la tampal sikit2 dalam journal Zharif tu. Here, I'd like to share some pics... what we did during the school break.. in Malaysia & Vietnam.. (sama la cerita dalam journal Zharif tu)..
*

Sementelaah tunggu daddy sampai dari Vietnam/KL petang nanti, makan2 & joli2 la kat Kuantan Megamall, naik menda ni.. Hah, dah banyak sangat kali naik, siap dapat free ride lagi.. rezeki depa tu. Mana taknya, tolong brader tu tarik menda tu bila budak lain habis main. Ha ha.. dapat part time job, dapat free ride tu..
*

Trying so hard to help daddy. Cuti kena potong, buat sendiri la beb.. no one's willing to fix the house within 7 days. But we did it!!! Tukar pintu & parquet, kena panggil expert la tu, 2 days je. Tebas rumput 5 kaki tu, gardener stadium (family fren) tolong. Painting the walls, plumbing, electrical fittings etc.. tu keje hubby!! Hobby dia. Paint the door/window grills, sental lantai & bathroom, keje Mulan. Uhuk.. uhuk.. but alhamdulillah. Paid off. My waist & arm jadik kecik maaaa.. Tak yah pi belly massage/aerobic untuk few months kot.

*
Sementelaah apppointment dengan taukeh parquet pukul 10 pagi nanti... he he.. bercanda dulu di Teluk Cempedak. Balik Kuantan tak complete la trip kalau tak pekena satu round kat TC ni. Though the weather was very2 gloomy, the kids had so much fun.. because they love water!!! Keluarga yang suka berendam, but mom not so lah. Habis kulit gue!! Habis kulit anak2 gue jadi color2!!! Huwaaaaa..

Heard from a friend about Saigon Pony Club. Dah tak tau apa lagi activity nak buat, we brought the kids here just to test the horseback ride. They enjoyed riding so much. Zharif has the criteria, to be a rider, kononnya. Instructor tu cakap la. Kot2 dia nak duit kot. Tapi they said posture penting untuk tunggang kuda2 ni. Zharif dari mula naik kekuda tu memang badan dia at the right position.. kononnya la. Tup tap tup tap, last Sunday hantar jugak la Zharif pi join the beginners session. He said he wanted to be a rider macam dalam cerita "Eragon". Tapi itu dragon rider !!! Tak pe la.. janji rider..

Ini amoi ever since she was 6 months old, dah kena campak dalam air. So, dia memang hantu air. Tak tau whether she can swim in the water without the swimming "float" suit tu. Takut eh nak cabut float dari suit tu. Nanti dia tak nak pakai lagi. Nak kena supervise all the time. Float dalam suit tu memang uncomfortable sikit. Heh.. takpe, janji dia timbul sepanjang masa. After came back from Malaysia, almost everyday lepak kat pool la depa. Terima kasih, saya duduk rumah saja. Penat sakan eh... ngecat, nyental, dot, dot, dot..
