Selamat Hari Raya to all of you.
This Raya a bit kecoh. The kitchen renovation was almost ready, but DH didn't like the floor tiles so kena bukak balik. The contractor managed to finish it On Sunday before Eid. Even the grill - pasang by Sunday. Kitchen cabinetlah tak pasang lagi. Nak buat kueh tak sompat as still had to clean the house etc. Kakak dapat buat one biscuit and tart yang dah habis dimakan rumah my mum. The cabinet contractor assured us can get ready by Raya but then dia baru nak start kerja on Monday 29th and it'll take around 2 and half day. We said.. forget it. Start on the 6th instead. That out of the way, kemaslah mana patut. But still certain things cannot be moved. Nak datang boleh tapi jangan terkezut.
Anyways, We thot of going back to Ampang on Monday Night ke at least but....
Baju tak siap lagi!!! We gave the tailor like 2 months before posa. She said it'll be ready by the 29th. Rupanya sub tailor dah meninggal, so tak siap lagi.
Come Tuesday, I called her again yelah nak baliklah sebelum malam Raya takkan macam melawat aje. She still have to sew buttons, she'll call me when ready. Eh tinggal butang takkan lama bebenor. So we thot we'd like pressure her. Pi lah...
She was still sewing adik's baju. Kakak and mine dah siap. We waited a bit, then DH got restless. tanya bilo nak siap ni... In the end Tina's baju tak siap. Yang lain siap, but adik's baju was done in haste. Terkeluar2 benang. Kesian anak I.
Before buka went to Ampang Point to search for Tina's baju. I bought one exactly like hers sebab kesian kat dia.. Ehem excuse mama nak baju baru!
First day Raya Wednesday
Morning, terkecoh2 , ingatkan nak buat lodeh tak sempat, after sembahyang Raya went to Linggi. Went to abah's grave, baca yassin and then went to Cik Tum's house- Kak Zarina masak nasi tomato. Jumpalah Pak Lang Aziz who resides in Kluang.
Then off to Aunty Tok/uncle Salleh's house- sempat jual sapphire set lagi.Then to Imam Tapa and Kak yah's/ Abang Shukri's house. Bebudak excited tengok Kambing. On the way back went singgah rest area, DH dah mengantuk..penangan rendang , ketupat etc..
Sampai rumah tired. My sister and DH insisted that I cook the lodeh and paru. Dah habis pulak cili boh, in the end used fresh chili for the paru. The maid blend instead of pound and the colour turned peach. I told my bro/sis in law and sis.. Rasa ok upanya pelik. Bro in law agreed. Sampai tak cukup.
Went back to Kluang. On the way singgah siram bunga kat Sepang.. Yes.. I remember last year, pokok mati balik Raya. Reached Kluang around 3. Lots of food on the table. Salam MIL and DIL. Mak Mas cooked rendang paru - Shila's mum's recipe and Nasi goreng kampung specially for Tina. Delicious.
SIL Nor came back in the morning. BIL Paiz came later in the afternoon. Went to Batu Pahat - Mak Long's house. Ter missed cousins. Malam bebudak main mercun.
Tolong MIL in the dapur - Mee Bandung Muar and Laksa Johor. Ada merhaban malam. DH dissappeared for a while. Around 6 drove back to Sepang.
