Unwinding in PD

We had a good 4D/3N time in PD. Although it was raining here in the Klang Valley, the weather in PD was great. Clear blue sky all the way except on Friday morning when it rained about 3 hours. It was such a relief that the kids, their cousin Hani and their Tok Mi and Tok Wan could enjoy the beach and the pool.

**1st pic: Hanis - the sand castle enthusiast!

It’s a good break for both Ayah and I actually. After what happened in my office the week before (I’ll write about this in my other posting), the sea breeze really put the sadness into coma. We got the time to unwind, loosen-up and relax.

Alhamdulillah.

**2nd pic: Hasya, Hanna, Haifa and their cousin Hani building the sand castles....

The only drawback was the 'not-so-clean' beaches along the Teluk Kemang area.

I wished they were cleaner... like Penang and Langkawi beaches....
or California.... (dream on!)

**3rd pic: Here's Haifa 'surfing'..hehehe...

Luckily, the pool was okay.

Now we're back home. Mak, AYAH and Hani already went home yesterday.

Today was spent at the Sekolah Kebangsaan, Sekolah Agama, the Uniform shop, the Bookshop etc etc... and now everything has been bought and ready for the kids.

We made a stop at the Cineleisure and watched Cicakman2. Frankly, I was a bit disappointed...

Whatever it is, I'm all charged up and ready for work tomorrow.... One more thing though- to complete it up,... I think I'll go get myself a Chinese massage :)

Memang sedih kan our beach kotor camtu? Nak cakap pun malas sbb dah mentality orang kita.
Tapi yg penting your kids and you and hubby dpt lah tenangkan fikiran sikit. ;)

Hello Ibu, wow! Port Dickson? My last time there wayyyyy back in the late 70's, ha ha.
Love your gambars, Ibu.
Alamak, sini outside ice and snow, to see the lovely blue sea...buat saya nak balek kampong besok, ha ha.
You have fun, Ibu and keep well. Saya suka your songs here. Best regards, Lee.

Uncle Lee said...

Ibu, saya lupa, what is a Chinese massage? First time saya dengar that, ha ha.
Bomoh urut ada, Japanaese ada, tetapi Chinese? Ha ha.
You look lovely in the last pic, Ibu...and that is a million dollar smile! Lee.

Salams Ja,

Glad that you and family had a good break in PD. Lovely pics! :)

And bravo to you - dah siap beli everything for school, etc. I baru belikan baju Hasya, kasut and bag sekolah for Hilman n Hasya, and stationeries for all. Buku sekolah satu pun belum beli lagi ni...

Baju Hanna esok baru nak gi beli coz' she insists to get hers from Professor. And her school also has their own socks and kutang baju kurung and all. Nak tak nak, kena jugak gi her school one of these days.

Sekejap ajer...dah nak bukak sekolah balik, kan?

Dear Farina,
You bet... memang ringan rasa kepala :)

You're right, mentality org kita dah macam tu. Ada tong sampah pun tak nak pakai. I saw 2 used diapers buang merata-rata... geram tengok...

Dear U.Lee,
1970s? That was a looong time ago! Mesti pergi dengan gf ni :)

Chinese massage? I've been frequenting this massage outlet where the ladies are from China. They use their Chinese massage techniques... memang sakit but the results - memang sedap!

Correction U.Lee - the last pic is my mom's, not me...hehehe... Tho she's 66, she's always 'young' to me...

Take care and be COOL U.Lee :)

Dear Shana,
I took an urgent leave yesterday so that I could go to their school. Nasib baik pi awal pagi, tak payah queue panjang....

My Haifa will be in Std 1 next yr and my Hanis in Tadika. So you can imagine the kelamkabutz that we'll have to endure the first week of school!

A-ahla.. sekejap saja sekolah dah nak buka... How time flies... hmmhhh....

Akmal said...

Dear myheartbleeds,

Dear Yatie....
I'm sooooo happpy you comment kat sini... I'm really worried about your whereabouts.... I guess Kak yus pun risau pasal you....

I just hope you're handling everything well. Remember that there must be a reason behind everything that happens in our lives. Allah dah atur semua tu for the best reasons....
