Open Houses

'Open House' is everywhere in Malaysia every weekend, during this Raya month..

I think we Malays, should extend this Raya period up until Raya Haji larh.. hehe.. ;p
4 weekends, (which is 2 days x 4, equals to 8 days) to celebrate Raya is not enough,man! So many people wanna conduct and carry out the function, thus there were sooo many open houses around the cosmopolitan areas and this leads to traffic jams also! haihh..



And for today only, out of 5 houses, we managed to go to 4 houses..
We (me, my dad and mom) went to:
1) Uncle Nasir's at USJ 17
2) Auntie Jamilah's at Kota Damansara
3) KLCC (Daddie got function at the Convention Centre, so me and my mom went beraya at KLCC instead! haha)
4) Uncle Ja'apar's at Wangsa Melawati
5) And we were supposed to go to daddy's friend's open house at Saloma Bistro, but it was raining very heavily.. and daddy couldn't stand the traffic jams.. So we didn't go..huhuh..

All this from 12pm till 10pm!! Very tiring! (but I kinda like it..leh kenal2 org gak..sambil2 mendengar cerita org tua! Very interesting, I tell u! haha)

See...so many houses to attend! Tak datang kang, tak elok pulak,orang dah ajak kan..tapi banyak sangatt la pulak!


Every weekend is always like this.. Even yesterday pun sama.. and the next next week also! And the worst part is, my Final Exams will start on this 28th! and I haven't start anything yet!! erkk.. =(

Of course, I am not really supposed and required to attend all of them, but.. I still wanna follow!! (It's the time for me to get to wear baju kurung/kebaya/etc and dress up a bit!) heheh ;p



Today I wore a simple deep purple kebaya with a lil bit of sequins and beads.. Fyi, I prefer a plain baju kurung rather than the corak ones.. For me, it looks uncomplicated I guess..haha




Anyways..

Last week we (me, my dad and mom) went to Batu Kurau,Perak to beraya and attend the wedding over there..
These days I felt like I am the only child they have! hehehe.. Only me who's always available to attend and follow them.. Aizat,my bro is always busy with tuitions and stuff..
And of course, my sisters have their own family and their own stuff..
So..now left only me and Aizat. (that's what I meant by saying my family is shrinking..hehe)

hmm... Now I know how it felt like to be the only child! Not really a good experience, I guess..heheh.. Rasa cam takde kawan nak borak..so terpaksa join geng2 orang tua berborak..haha ;p

Like when I was at one of the houses there(in Batu Kurau), I sat in between my mom and my dad.
On my left side was daddy and all the uncles/grandpa.. and on my right side was my mom and her crews.. I was surrounded by all the people who aged not less than 50++ and above!

So there I was.. Sitting in the middle all by myself, dunno what to say..hehehe.. So I just listened to what they said lar..
It was funny, I tell u! Well..I have always think that men and women are funny in a cute way! (Read the book by Allan Pease: Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps, then you'll understand what I'm saying).

Men and women are so unique! I mean, grown ups people are actually funny and weird in an interesting way.. hehe.. The reason I said this is because I always thought grown-ups have GROWN UP! hehe.. I mean, not to say that they are not matured and I am.. NO, that's not what I'm trying to say here.. (I am sooo NOT yet! isk)
erm.. I just thought their conversations are like err... different..hehe.. I mean of course, they've matured and stuff...but somehow I always thought being older, has made their way of thinking or at least their conversations or subjects would be different a bit than us(the twenty's). haha. =P
But nope.. they are very much the same I guess.. After all, I am considered as a grown up too! ( at the aged of 21, we are considered as adult,rite? haha) =P
Anyhow,anyway.. I like to be around them..They are the coolest. Especially the atuk2 ones.. So comel! ;)




Oh, let's change the subject.. I'm starting to talk craps..and don't make any sense! haha =P
You know.. When I first arrived there, I was like so jakun and went gugu gaga over the environment and surroundings! It was so kampung-like, which I fancied and enjoyed verry much! I was so excited!!! haha



And the only word that came out from my mouth was,"Heee-eeee, bestnyaa!".. huhuh.. ;p


Just so you know, my definition of Kampung is: Must have- Bukit-bukau yang menghijau, Rumah Papan(this is crucial, in order to feel the kampung vibe! haha), Pokok Kelapa, Dalam rumah mesti ramaiii giler orang, The people must be friendly and talkative, and lastly.. Makan duduk bersila atas tikar n lauk hidang dlm dulang besar tu... hehehhee ;p



(and they have all these criterias, at the place that I went,btw) Oh and if the kampung have sawah padi is a bonus!!! Teringin sgt2 nak amik gamba kat sawah padi!



Haaa...macam ni baru la rasa suasana kampung!! Baru best! (My kampung tak best... tak rasa kampung sangat.. huhuhh ;p )





Anyways.. here are some of the photos during my short visit there..

Jalan-jalan di Batu Kurau...


I like this house! It's a papan house and the tingkap jenis bukak macam tu and ade langsir macam tu..(Macam Adabi punya tingkap!) Oh me likey! hehee


I loovee this girl! So damnn cute! Love her eyes and her hair! Wavy, I loike!


Oh, this one.. I was so excited to eat like this(bersila n ade dulang n all), that I took this photo before I eat.. And they all looked at me like I'm a psycho.. haha ;p



Her name is Iffah.. She's 4. N she loved my 4 inch heels and Stila lip gloss that I showed her! Oh, I can't wait to have my own daughter.. Nak bergedik bersama2...haha =P




Okay..that's all for now!

Oh wait... this is my attempt to make a "Selamat-Hari-Raya-Maaf-Zahir-Batin-Thanks-for-inviting-me" face.. haha ;p

I know lame! But what the heck..hehehee ;p



Ok.. SELAMAT HARI RAYA, MAAF ZAHIR BATIN, EVERYONE!
Oh, and thanks for inviting me to your house! ;)



XOXO,
S.

  4. Bestnye jd 'anak tunggal' sekejap. Hehehehe.... Also have that experience before. Best....sume org kate I anak manja. Huhuhuhu... But I dh xde chance nk jd anak manja dh... Dh ada family & life sdri. Abah pun dh xde...sob...sob... But until now, my sibling still call me 'anak abah'. I don't know why...
    Kampung...mmg best. Bkahwin dgn org kg buat hdup jd lbh bermakna. Everythings are different. Sometimes mmg rs boring. But for certain parts, interesting! Anyway, berselera tgk lauk pauk tu. I miss that situation.
