I was having a great time moving from one open house to another (ada dua je pun) when I came home and caught my mom's maid tengah bertelefon with her boiferen (kata mak I lah). Never in all my married life with so many maids, depa menggatal depan2 I mcm ni.So I naik satu hanginlah.I set the tone (my fav slogan now) and told her my house rules: nak kerja, kerja betul2...not easy to get a maid.Not cheap to maintain two maids in one small place! Growl! Must be all the lambs I ate today...temp sudah naik woh.
I thought I would not have to deal with this kinda issue anymore. Gelenyar sungguh!
Now the happier update:
Margaret rang me yesterday inviting me to her sister's CNY open house at Kenny Hills. M is from Spore but many of her siblings live in KL. So we decided to meet up at the open house.I went to get some CNY gifts.Semua kedai tutup, you. Haiyo! But lucky the fruit stall tak tutup.In fact I had everything I wanted under one roof.They even make you your fruit basket.I was thinking get the fruits first then drive everywhere to find a nice fruit basket. Bdk Rachmat tu buat mcm David Copperfield.Kejap je siap. Now I know where to go for my fruit basket gifts.Alhamdulillah.
We had a good time talking about families and jobs.Budaya yg berbeza kan? Topics mrk: when did we get our first Lotus, first Porshe etc.Tapi family ni baik2 and peramah. One of the younger boys is studying at Adelaide so you can imagine the little noise we made over the table.Haha. Yang sorang tu nak jadi penyanyi despite a respectable degree in Engineering.Uncle dia musician terkenal di London.Duduk kat Kensington, OK? Took some naughty pics to tease Ivy in Paris sbb dia suka put her food pics on her fb.Mentang2 we all tak pandai memasak mcm dia. :))
Mlm: Khairil and Lina decided to do a yee sang dinner again at their plc so after Maghrib kita semua potluck apa yg patut.We did the easy way...order kfc for the kids (or rather Khairil pi beli on our behalf cos he was still out masa tu). Too much food.Spoilt for choice.Sebenarnya Allah sgt sayang kpd kita org Msia.Ini yg a friend dok perli I sejak bila I sound so PERKASA and so UMNO. :D Nasiblah kau labu....
I hope the horsey year won't gallop so fast but am feeling the heat now.Marilah kita berdoa agar cabaran serba serbi will not affect us too much.
