It was morning full of activity, nak kata kalut, tak jugak. Cuma byk benda nak juggle. I had to fetch hubby from Terminal 3, he came back from Singapore. Then both of us went to SDMC for my monthly pre-natal checkup. This was almost 11am. Queue at Delaila's was long, so we decided to have roti canai at our favourite place, we drove to Fawwaz. After that was past 1130am so hubby dropped me at SDMC, still got around 10 people before my turn. Hubby then rushed home to send off Hayaa to school.
Tak sempat hubby joined my check-up. Baby was ok. Doc kata nampak mcm lelaki tapi tak berapa sure, kita tgk lah next check-up. Huiiii...kalau dapat boy, alangkah murahnya rezeki, double joy. Doa laa. After check-up, urine test & blood sampling (uggghhh...tak pandai cucuk la lab tech ni..sakit laa jugak), we went to Mandarin Oriental for lunch. While driving, mak called, ajak pi melawat Mak Teh at hospital ptg2 sikit. She was admitted sebab dah lemah demam nye psl. So that cut our afternoon trip, ingat nak layan Iron Man 3, kensel.
Dah berapa minggu plan nak makan kat MO nih, sempena my birthday. Hubby ordered : Szechuan soup, salted egg butter prawn, black pepper venison, steamed cod fish fillet and mixed vege. On top of this, I ordered 2 types of dimsum, one steamed (beef dumpling) & one fried (Shanghai style)...belasah je. Soup was niiiiceee, prawn..fuhh lemak berkrim..sedap you..and I like the not so salty and quite gritty texture of the flour layering the prawn, courtesy of the salted egg. Venison? Lembuttt siuttt. First time makan venison nih. Hubby was in ecstasy, kept shaking his head (closed eyes some more). Nampak sangat dia yang teringin makan kat MO ni benornya. We did not finish the prawn (2 pieces) and dimsum (3 pieces), kenyang. Tapauuu...! Tapau pun dapat paper bag MO class gitu, kakakaa.
After lunch, we sort of 'Touch N Go' at Coach..hmmm..remember the handbag that hubby promised. Ini lah dia! Woohooo! Suddenly mak called, she's going with Abg Tam instead. So time is ours again. Since kita dah muktamad nak beli that particular design, sebelum ni pernah stopover kat kedai to belek2, purchasing was very brief and efficient. We went back home to fetch Hayaa from school. Actually ada drama tauuu kat sini. Refer to another post.
Dapat tau, ada family friend (ex-USM) from Ipoh confirm singgah rumah for dinner. Awal2 tu mcm tak confirm lagi. So I rushed to Jaya Grocer and bought sayur2, fruits and mini ice cream for kids (ada 5 org kut). By the time I got home, Kerok & wife (Ogy) and kids dah sampai pun. Rumah dah kecah bebudak main toys. Apa lagi, start jadi General kat dapur. Macam biasa, kita kuar arahan je, askar Mbak Mus masak laaaa...ehehehehe. I did the rest : set the table, prepare drinks & cut fruits, offer ice-cream & hot drinks for after dinner.
By 8 something, Helmi & Misbah lak sampai from Penang. They freshened up (they over-night kat rumah kitaorg) and dinner pun start around 815 pm. Makan2, then 930pm kut baru beransur. Kerok dropped family at Rooftop Garden Hotel and the guys after that pi main badminton tang mana tah. Gilooo.
Fuhhh, penat la jugak malam tu tapi rasa puas hati la dapat entertain guests. My sciatica (right butt cheek) flared up really bad. Lepas duduk2 rest after rumah tu aman damai, I practically could not stand up straight. Terbongkok2 dibuatnya. Sciatica shooting pains, tangkap sampai ke buku lali. Adoiii...siang tadi dah terasa2 masa jalan2 kat KLCC. Hmmm..dah malam, jadi full-fledge la, since I was on my feet a lot. Dengan grocery shopping lah and guest entertaining lah. Tido pun, susah nak cari position yg kurang denyut2 kat sciatica nerve tuh.
Post event note : Nasib baik Senja FC menang next pagi Ahad tuh. Berbaloi org Ipoh & Penang datang. and double berbaloi kita meng entertain guest.
