A SOCCER MOM


A soccer momma, is a mom who shows great interest in the hobby of her child. She always drives her child to and from practice and games, and watches every match the team plays.

I wish i could be her, one day (minus the little bit annoying, yell a lot part. Haha)
Amin!! =D

It's so damn cool to imagine that i'm in the old school Volkswagen-Kombi-Van, wearing this big sunglasses, driving my son and his team to the Final Footbal match. No to forget, i wear my son's team jersey siap tampal nama lagi. "You're rock, Aunty!" shout one of my son's friend. Kah! Kah! Oh drama!

Ok enough! Back to reality :)

Oman's latest interest is to get his parents exhausted. Hahah. He doesn't care if we come back home with the pillow picture on our forehead. There's one time at 3 am in the morning, he woke up, crying for me, and then asked me to entertained him with this "bulat kecil, bulat kecil, bulatlah besar" singing and drawing. I was asked to repeat that 10 times. Isn't that great? hahaha.

The first thing when he opened his eyes in the morning, after crying my name (wajib), is to look for Dadda's "Tom cat", "Hipo" and "Panda Bu". There are actually the iPhone applications which these animals can repeat whatever he says to them. So, this 2 and 3 weeks if Armi was late to work, you have the answer already. His son needs to meet his friends first until he believed that those animals need some rest too. Most of the time he doesn't. :P

Last week, I was outstation to Pengkalan Balak Melaka, for 2 days and 1 night. When i arrived at home (read: Sungai Long), i saw this little Kidd like this;

which means, "momma, I need you right now". Seriously, i wasn't allowed to go to the toilet. 2 jam kot menahan. Sorry son, i really love you but i really need to pee too. Maka, habisla pintu toilet tu gedebak gedebuk hammered by Oman. Sabo jekla. :P

Without the need to change my uniform, we had a great time playing soccer after that. If Dato' Zam (TM's CEO) saw me masa tu, he must have been so proud at me,


See!!! Siap pakai lanyard TM lagi tau layan anak main!!! hihihi. Betapa x sempatnyer i. But who cares. Who could resist this Little Kidd, especially when I haven't see him for a night. Mesti Qadha' balik semua masa tu. :)

We played football almost 45 minutes. Most of the time he kicked the ball and then "momma amik". Ciss. Xpe xpe.. at least ada can nak kurus sikit kan? hahaha. Pancit weh!!

It really means a lot all the way, when we love to share the excitement of our loved ones' interest. In my case, as once a while as i have to leave them for my career, i have to do this so called wifey-mommy-sharing-is-caring-activities more. It's like the compensations to them too.

We love, we sacrifice. So, let's celebrate Love!! =D

Muka happy lepas main bola. Wee!!

GAP CASTING CALL

Melinda: "U, u bawakla Oman pergi casting GAP tu"
Irma: "Kak Nuurill, xnak ke cuba bawak Oman pergi casting GAP tu"

Oman pergi Casting? hihi. I never had anything like that in my mind before.
Oman casting kat studio Dadda dia sudahhh =D

Last Friday afternoon, me and my mil did a little shopping in One Utama Baby GAP/Kids. Upon payment was made, i was friendly approached by a GAP lady staff asking me to whom i bought all the outfits. I told her that they're for my son and his future cousin. (Dadda masa ni tengah layan Oman naik 'ayoplen' (aeroplane) kat tepi butik tu). She then asked me to bring Oman to the casting that would be held in front of the boutique the next days, Saturday and Sunday since we 're entitled for it (you must be a member of GAP and spent rm170 in that boutique. If you're not a member, you have to spend RM700 to be so, but no need to add that RM170).

At that time, i was having this in my mind; A loooooooong and tiring qeue!! (someone told me that the previous casting in the Gardens, they had such 8-years-waiting. hihi) oh oh.. such a big NO for us. Oman tu mana nak duduk diam sekarang. Manala dia nak tunggu lama-lama ni. (parents dia pun x kuase sebenonyer. hihi). So i replied her with a smile, "we'll see how, kay".

We were fully occupied on Saturday that we were almost saying bye bye to the casting. On Sunday afternoon, we managed to drop by One Utama but not for the casting. My hubby and I had a few things to eye and Oman's Nanny decided to follow too. Tell you, One Utama cars parking were so damn full that we had to park at the desert outside. hihi. Was it because of everyone came to join the contest? =D

My mil was actually quite interested with this click-click-his-grandson-picture-thingy. She put a little hope that Oman would still have the chance to join it. Saja suka-suka kata nanny. (Terbayang lagi queue yang panjang!!). So then we decided to have a look at it first.

Yes, there were a lot of kids and babies with parents.. seriously hensem2, cantik2, comel2 belaka. Ada yang blond, ada yang curly hair, ada yang with make-up... oh my!! they were so gorgeous!! :)

There was no queue at the registration table so my hubby grabbed that chance to register for Oman. Then, We were asked to come back after 2 hours.

After 3 hours (yes, we were late due to some reason. Apelah Oman ni, kalau nak jadi model kenela punctual. :p), Oman finally really join the casting. Serious macam tak percaya jer tau. My son tu memang buat hal dia jer. Dia siap hampir nak nangis lagi because he thought the cameraman stole his dada's camera. Boley? hahaha.

And now, presenting,

Roman Anaqhi bin Mohd Armi;

He wore a white shirt on top of his t-shirt at first, habis comot masa lunch, seb baik GAP sediakan this jacket, muat-muat size dia. hihi.

The winners will be featured in BabyGaps and GapKids in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. The winners will be selected based on 60%public vote and 40% GAP/FJB vote.

To Win or not, it doesn't matter . Kalau menang, kira rezeki Oman lah kan. Kalau x menang, kira rezeki Oman jugak, sebab Oman dapat 1 gambar free yang sekarang kitorang dah frame kan lagi. hihi. Apa-apa pun, Oman dah memang model tetap Dadda. Ahaks! :)

TITAPO

I just came back from a few days meeting which was held in Royal Plaza on Scotts, Singapore. Armi and Oman were there with me. It was two trips travel.

I was in the meeting on 2nd December before we received the sad news on the afternoon. We rushed back that evening to Malaysia to meet arwah nenek for the last time, managed to attend her funeral and tahlil. Alhamdulillah.

On the night after arwah nenek's funeral and tahlil had completed, i was really in dilemma to let them know that i needed to go back to my work. I felt like i was being cruel and in-tolerate. You see, that was the hardest part. I kept asking myself, would i do the right thing? I know i have done the sufficiency for arwah. But, would others understand? especially my in-laws ..

And what about Oman? everyone's really sad. I didn't want to add the burden to my in laws at that point of time. My son needed me, my hubby was more. My parents were far..... sigh

Allah itu Maha Pengasih dan Maha Penyayang. He made things became easier for me. Hubby was really understood with my condition. He told me, i have contributed sufficiently to his family, I have attended arwah nenek very well, mandikan jenazah, kafankan jenazah and sent her to her funeral, so it should be alright for his parents to let me go. He then decided that he and Oman would still accompany me to Singapore so that Oman would still be with his dadda and momma at that hard time.

He even talked to his parents for me.
Terharu sangat. Kidd and Little Kidd, if you read this, i love you so much!!

Alhamdulillah, my Parents in law were deeply understood too. Especially abah, he said i was fortunate enough that the consortium allowed me to excuse that important meeting for attending a grandmother's funeral. Some company (would not consider it since it's only a husband's grandmother who passed away (they don't really care how closest your relationship was)). As an experienced boss, he said that it's clear cut that i'm required to come back to my work after the funeral so i shouldn't feel wrong about it.

I am thankful and blessed. Syukur.

We were then flied back to Singapore on 4th December.
Unlike previous pattern, I'm having no stories/pictures to share about the room, the place, the food, the people, the shopping in Singapore. Though we had some plans to visit those exciting place such Universal Studio, Underwater World, Sentosa Island and many more, tapi, perancangan Allah itu lebih baik kan?

Do you know that Oman was really really excited for his trip to Singapore? hihi. Even he was just staying in the hotel room with dadda and sometimes dadda brought him to check nearest mall while i was working, he was really enjoy running everywhere. Makin kuruslah Encik Dadda. Wow!. :)

Oman pronounced Singapore as TITAPO. how cute! :
Everytime when asked him where he wanna go, he would answer, "titapo naik 'otoplan' (aeroplane)".

Here's a video that we managed to record before we departed to Singapore on 1st December 2010.

video

6.30 am. Siap bagi ucapan lagi. Hihi

These photos below show how Oman really falling in love with the airport. Hahah..

Adeh..

And when he got tired, he chose to be dadda's passenger,



Insya Allah, if panjang umur and murah rezeki, we'll come back in future to pursue our plans. Okay, Oman?

NENEK

Tanggal 2 December 2010, nenek telah pergi meninggalkan kami.
Berita yang kami terima amat mengejutkan. Sangat-sangat x diduga.
Lebih hiba apabila kami (me, Armi and Oman) sedang berada di Singapura pada ketika itu.

Dalam perjalanan ke Airport, x terkira airmata kami gugur. Inilah kali ke dua aku melihat suami menangis. (Kali pertama masa Oman few days old). Aku tahu, berita ini sangat sukar diterima, sebab Armi bukan orang yang mudah menangis. Itulah nenek yang menjaga suamiku dari umurnya 1 hari sehingga dewasa. Itulah nenek yang membasuh kasut sekolahNya pada hujung minggu, itulah nenek yang akan membancuhkan Milo untuknya tiap kali dia pulang ke rumah dari Universiti, itulah nenek yang akan mengurut kakinya apabila terseliuh selepas bersukan, itulah nenek yang akan masakkan makanan kegemarannya, sambal ikan bilis tanpa diminta, itulah nenek.... yang sangat sayang akan cucunya itu.

Dan diri ini, kali pertama diperkenalkan kepada nenek, kami terus begitu mesra. Nenek selalu meminta daku datang ke rumah itu untuk berbual. Nenek sangat suka bercerita hal-hal agama dan kehidupan. Kadang-kadang nenek meluahkan perasaannya kepadaku. Perasaan risau seorang nenek dan berharap agar aku dapat menjaga dan menemani cucunya itu dalam susah atau senang. Nenek juga suka aku menemaninya tidur pada hujung minggu sambil nenek bercerita tetang kenangan-kenangan lamanya. Teringat sewaktu aku masih di universiti, aku jatuh sakit dijangkiti kuman, nenek terus meminta aku di bawa ke rumah itu dengan izin abah dan mamaku. Nenek kata biarlah nenek yang jaga, sebab mereka jauh. Nenek yang masakkan bubur, nenek bawa ke bilik atas, nenek suapkan. Kata Armi, nenek sayang sangat denganku. Macam cucu-cucunya yang lain.

Tatkala kami sampai ke halaman rumah, makin hiba perasaan ini. Irma terus meluru kepadaku, kami menangis teresak-esak. Nenek sudah seperti kawan baiknya. Neneklah tempat Irma bergurau dan bermanja. Irma pasti sedih. Tambahan pada ketika ini Irma sedang mengandung dan nenek tidak sempat untuk melihat bakal cicit keduanya itu.

Kemudian, aku peluk mama. Oh! mamalah orang yang pasti paling sedih, paling meratapi pemergian ibu kesayangannya itu. Nenek telah bersama-sama mama pada waktu susah dan senang. Nenek yang menjaga anak-anak mama ketika mama dan abah mencari rezeki. Nenek yang menjadi tempat mama mengadu semua keluh kesah.

Ketika Armi memeluk mamanya, aku melihat suamiku menangis teresak-esak seperti anak kecil. Hanya tuhan yang tahu, betapa pemergian nenek sangat-sangat dirasai oleh keluarga ini.

Nenek membesarkan 4 orang anak tanpa suami. Nenek bersawah padi menyara keluarga. Selepas mama berkahwin dengan abah, nenek tinggal dengan mama sehinggalah ke akhir hayat nenek. Abah, mama, Armi, Irma dan Adik memang sangat-sangat rapat dengan nenek. Kemudian hadir diriku dan Afie dalam keluarga ini. Kasih sayang nenek memang tiada tolok bandingannya.

Pada malam itu, anak-anak dan cucu-cucu nenek bergilir-gilir membacakan Surah Yasin di sisi jasad nenek sehinggalah Subuh keesokan harinya. Tiap kali kenangan menjelma, gugurlah air mata kami. Neneklah orang yang paling banyak berdoa untuk semua anak-anak dan cucu-cucunya. Pengorbanan dan jasa nenek akan kami kenang ke akhir hayat kami.

Apabila ditanya samada aku mahu memandikan jasad nenek. Aku terus mengangguk walaupun aku tak pasti yang aku akan kuat untuk melakukannya. Seumur hidup tidak pernah lagi aku memandikan mayat. Dan pada ketika waktunya tiba, aku bersama empat orang lagi cucu perempuan nenek memangku jasad nenek untuk dimandikan. Aku memangku kaki nenek. Tubuh nenek sangat sejuk.

Tatkala kain putih jarang menutupi muka nenek dibuka, aku sempat bertanya Ustazah. "ustazah, kalau mandikan mayat boleh menangis x, saya tak tahan" Ustazah pun berkata, "boleh nak. Untungnya nenek kamu. Ramai cucu-cucu yang meriba nenek dan mandikan nenek"... maka berderailah air mata kami sepanjang kami memandikan nenek dengan panduan dari ustazah. Sayu... teramat sayu. Melihat raut wajah nenek yang tenang. Kami bersihkan tubuh badan nenek. Tatkala aku menggosok lebut jari-jari kaki nenek, terngiang-ngiang suara nenek ketika kali terakhir kami bertemu nenek "Nuurill, jaga anak baik-baik na"...

Aku pasti, ketika itu, cucu-cucu nenek yang lain, masih-masing terkenangkan kenangan mereka bersama nenek.

Kami mandikan nenek bersih-bersih. Kami pusingkan badan nenek untuk mengosok bahagian belakang dengan lembut. Anak-anak perempuan serta menantu nenek menyiramkan air ke tubuh nya. Kami semua merasa memandikan nenek. Alhamdulillah.

Kemudian anak-anak dan cucu-cucu nenek mengkafankan nenek. Apabila selesai, tibalah saat kami ingin memberi kucupan terakhir buat nenek...
Ketika ini, anak-anak nenek, menantu-menantu nenek, cucu-cucu nenek, semuanya tak tertahan untuk mengalirkan air mata.

Nenek telah selamat dikebumikan di Tanah Perkuburan Sungai Kantan, Kajang pada hari Jumaat, 3hb Disember 2010. Kami bersyukur nenek pergi dengan tenang dan segalanya persiapan untuk majlis pengkebumian nenek berjalan lancar. Alhamdulillah. Terima kasih buat semua yang menolong, melawat, serta menyedekahkan Surah Yasin serta Al-Fatihah to arwah.

Dan hari ini, aku kembali bertugas di Singapura ditemani suami dan anak yang mana kami sangat saling memerlukan pada ketika ini, membawa seribu kenangan dan doa untuk arwah nenek di sana.

Moga jasad nenek dicucuri rahmat, ditempatkan bersama-sama mereka yang beriman. Kami akan ingat segala pesanan nenek dan jadi yang lebih baik seperti yang nenek harapkan.

Oman kalau ditanya, "Oman, Nyang mana?"... Oman akan jawab "Nyang, tido"....
satu hari nanti, Oman akan faham, sayang.

Kenangan bersama arwah (2007).

Buat nenek, Puan Sabaniah Ahmad, kami sangat-sangat rindukan nenek...
Al-Fatihah.

GOOD LUCK TO BOTH OF YOU

In my family, I have 5 siblings and 3 of them are girls.
We are Kak Yung (it's me), Kak Lang (3rd in the family) and Adik (the youngest)

From Left: Adik, K.yung and K.Lang

Anak-anak dara Haji Filus. Hihi

Saje je tau. Nak jugak letak gamba Oman dengan kami. Oman nangis sebab ape ek masa ni? x ingat dah. hehe


This entry is dedicated specially to both of my sisters.

The first is to Adik. She is 17 years Old which means she's in form 5 now. What's more synonym to Form 5 rather than ES PI EM!!! yes, SPM!!

The first day of SPM is today. Owh i can still remember how ketaq was I on the first day i took my SPM paper back in 1998 (ok xyahla nak kira umur i skrg berapa kan :p). My adik, she is oh my God so cool! hihi. My mom's keep 'leter'ing her that she's seemed so relax and more sleeps than reads. Kuang kuang kuang. During her PMR examination, she was the same chilling babe. We were quite surprised when her results were considered wow (yelah, kalau tgk cara belajar dia kan. :P). hihi. Alhamdulillah.

Adikku, K.yung tau kamu smart girl. Kamu dekat asrama mesti study x hengat punya. Tu yang sampai jam kamu rosak masuk air ****. HAHAHAHAHA (adik beradik je yang tau). No matter what, kami sekeluarga sentiasa doakan kamu dapat jawab semua paper2 kamu dengan tenang dan cemerlang. Dengan ucapan, jangan tertidur ketika menjawab soalan ok. :)
Insya Allah. Do your best . No pressure. *kenyit mata*

The second special dedication goes to my Kak Lang. A HUGE Good Luck and CONGRATULATION to her for being selected by her faculty to be among the 5 out of 20 USM degree students who will have their 2nd internship training in INTEL Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam starting 29th November 2010. 2 Malays and she's one of them. Peewit! :D

To experience a training/job in other country is not a golden chance that always comes, right? I'm so proud of her. She studies so hard (paling rajin belaja antara adik beradik kami). Though she's not been selected to enter the university straightly after her SPM, she didn't give up, she'd climbed the stairs step by step. She took the Certificate then Diploma one after another, and excelled in both with flying colors. Soon, wah lah, she will get a degree for herself. Insya Allah. :)
and she is still single (Eh, terpromote pulak :P)

Jadi adik-adik, apa yang penting?.. Teruskan usaha, dan bertawakkal. Renung-renungkan :)
(dah macam profesor Izi Haji Ali la pukak)

So Kak Lang, jaga diri elok-elok di tempat orang k. Be positive. Give them the fullest. Gain as much as knowledge as u can for that 2 golden weeks. Jangan takut-takut k. Kalau takut naik kapal terbang, selawat banyak-banyak. Confirm kamu akan ridu kitorang punya, hehe, sebab kitorang pun mesti rindu kamu sangat-sangat. Xpe, abah and mama kan sekarang dah pandai ym. :)
Kami akan selalu doakan kamu selamat, seronok dan excellent kat sana. Amin!



Love you both!! :)

JOM IKUT DADDA!!

Dadda Oman is a HUGE fan of sports especially football.
Since i dated him almost 9 years ago, i have become his most loyal supporter in sports.
Xkiralah padang besar ke, futsal ke, badminton ke, bowling ke, takraw ke kan, i was always there to become the cheerleader a.k.a timekeeper, penjaga beg and tukang beli air. Ngeh Ngeh.

ni belon, bukan bola :P

After we tied the knot, more sports things could be done together like watching EPL, Champions League or Worldcup sampai 2,3 pagi. If not at home where all his friends would come and cheer the match, we would 'lepak'ing at mamak's to watch those games with his friends. I still remember during Champions League Final 2008, my hubby, me and a bunch of his friends went to Hartamas at 3am in the morning to watch Manchester United vs Chelsea. Tell you, it was so damn awesome to see MU and Chelsea fans, majority in red and blue, gathered there to support their own favorite team who were playing inside high-definition, big screen television. :D

Glory glory Man United!!! Hehe.. MU menang!!

If Old Trafford at DK, I tukang buat kopi :)

Lepak kat kedai mamak Teh C after futsal mmg best!

I was too active in sports (netball) during my uni time. Having a soul-mate who'd rather be absent at a relative's wedding than missing out the futsal tournament (eh baru ingat, sedara tu bau-bau bacang yang tak berapa bau kan? xpe xpe, dia faham. hahaha), I could feel that the passion and the sports liking has developed very well in me, indirectly. I was encouraged to play futsal too. Every time i had the game with other girls, he would be there too to support so did other girls' partners. Girls were kicking the ball, the boys pulak jaga tiang gol. Memang seronok, babe!! :)

Kemain lagi taww! nak posing ke nak main? :)

I never miss to see him sweat even after i got Oman in my belly. Sampai 2, 3 pagi pun, sanggup! sampai tetido-tetido la i kat court badminton. kah kah! Oman, your dadda was so excited. He couldn't wait for you to born ok. He always imagined that while he's playing futsal inside the court, momma would train you kicking the small ball outside the court and every time he scored, you would clap your hands happily and gave your flying kiss to him. (dadda please jangan bukak-bukak baju macam dalam tv tu kay!).

Love is crazy you know. Until a few days before Oman was born, i was still able to follow him playing takraw at padang asam, subang, the place where he and his friends met every after secondary school, to play football sambil ngorat budak balik sekolah. :P. He insisted me to follow too, sebab takut i terberanak sengsorang kat rumah. Dia rela tempat lahir anak dia dekat padang bola dari rumah. Hahaha.

Then Oman was born. That was the time, where things changed desperately. I was no longer follow my hubby on every Thursday midnight to watch him play badminton, on every Friday midnight to HTO watching him play futsal, no more. However, I never stop my hubby from continuing all his activities. He would fall sick without them. hahahaha. Frankly, It's really ok for me. Just because i could not have it anymore, takkan la my hubby pun should lost it too. Dadda Oman memang selalu ajak both of us to follow him to Futsal, tapi memandangkan Oman was a baby, and he would easily get cranky if tempat tido dia x luas yang dia boleh golek-golek, pulak tu kat court tu confirm panas, i had to say "it's ok" or "x kot kidd". Pergilah kanda, dinda relakan :)

I was staying at home, with Oman, nursing him, put him to sleep, watching him sleeping, then Oman watched me sleeping pulak, then Oman didn't want to sleep, until dadda came back home. Then Dadda pulak sleep but Oman still awake. :P Hihi.. Oman wasn't really a night sleeper when he was a baby. Asyik nak main je sampai Subuh.

lahir-lahir dah ada jersey :P

Tengok! tengok! Kerja dadda la ni. bangun-bangun je Oman nampak bola tau. :D

I sedih wo mula-mula!! Tapi Allah tu maha Adil kan, i lost the biggest entertainment i had before, but He replaced it with this cute Little Man named, Oman. Despite the sadness of no longer having a good time watching sexy boys and girls ran and sweat (hoi!!. beristighfar), there's this little baby, who always kept his momma smiles and him telling stories in his German language to comfort her mom, when she missed her activity so much. Ahaks. :)

Oman was almost 1 year and 4 months when me and my hubby celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. Dah big baby dah. Sleeping routine Oman dah good. Letak lah kat mana pun kalau dia dah ngantuk, dia lanyak je. :) Kebetulan, that night, it was Friday and dadda macam biasa having futsal. So i was saying to myself, that was the perfect time, to intro Oman to Futsal. at the same time celebrating our anniversary (celebrate anniversary kat Futsal court tau. haha). Kira Anniv present la ni. :P

When this idea sent to dadda Oman, of course he was so excited at the same time we were quite nervous on Oman's reaction towards it. Kalau dia dah tetido (pukul 11 mlm kot game start) it's fine cause dah x susah dah nak handle dia. Put him in the stroller, settle! However, it's gonna be very interesting if Oman's not sleeping yet. (Armi nyer idea, paksa Oman jangan tido. haha). There would be loud voices, lot of people, lot of balls, and steam temperature. Would he able to take it? Tedenggg!

Hey Oman anak jantanlah momma!! :) After we had the dinner and photo-shoot session (Batuk kuat untuk dadda) that night, Oman was still fresh and refused to sleep. Yey! When we reached HTO, oman had so many uncles to entertain him. We brought along his mini football to play with, xde maknanya, he insisted to play with the big one. kekwat sungguh!ahahah.

04.06.10 - The first time Oman met Futsal court

Tengok je ke cik abang?

Uncle amjack tunjuk cara-cara tahan bola :)

Uncle Kept pulak.

Bila game dah start, semua uncle pun dah masuk padang, Oman mula cari his dadda.

I found you, dadda!. Ok dah senang hati. hihi

Bermanja ngan Uncle Pipit yang baru sampai.

But kid is always a kid. Sampai masanya dia hek hek jugak. hihi. I think because Oman refused himself to sleep, he started to crank and feel uneasy. Apetah lagi bila dah berpeluh sakan. Dengan momma-momma berpeluh!

Huwaa!

Time ni bergambar, sorrylah! :D

Again, kid is always a kid, when you know how to tackle and comfort him, he could delivered back his sweetest smile. Owh melt! Oman actually panas dan dahaga tadi. I brought him direct to the big fan and gave some drink.

Uish.. dahaganya!!

kuci! kuci!

keadaan kembali tenang :D

When the game finished, Oman was really sleepy already. We decided not to lepak at mamak after that, but to directly go back home. Oman had done a great job that day, so to drag him further more, dadda and momma so x sampai hati. Seb baik terus balik umah tau, masuk je kereta, he needed my B. :p Haip!! peluhla cayang. momma kene lap lap dulu la. Masin nanti. ahahahaha.

So, that's the story on the first time Oman's followed his dadda to Futsal. So far, baru 2 kali jer in total cause dadda selalu ade studio job earlier before, then directly goes to futsal. xsempat amik kitorang. Issokay dadda, whenever we have time ok! hihi.

To the two boys in my life, to see you happy, it makes me happy too!! :D


photo by Dadda.

Oman Chan, Happy 21st month to you. Ailebiu!!

p/s: He's now able to lead us in reciting full verse of Doa makan before having our meal. (adela pelat-pelat cikit :)). Terkejut kitorang sebab baru ajar dia doa tido jer. He learns it at his Day Care. Alhamdulillah. Caaayang Oman.

FROM CAIRO with LOVE (Cycle 4 - Finale)

This gonna be the end chapter of my Cairo's book. Hope you guys like it.

********

Meeting was ended earlier that day. Everyone was looking forward to have a dinner on Nile River's cruise. Me? of course!! I think almost 20 times i said thank you to my colleague in Telecom Egypt for hosting such wonderful dining. Hihi.

Lemme introduce some of my sweet friends there in Cairo;

Pic No. 1 from left: Maghda, Rodhwa, Me and Rania.
Owh mereka sangat cantik! :)

All of them are working for Submarine Cable in TE. Actually i was surprised that in TE, there are a lot of ladies into Submarine profession. I was so happy. Ade geng pompuan. Yey!! :)

The named of the Restaurant is Khulkhal. It's an arabic restaurant inside Nile Maxim that will take you cruising along Nile River. The food, Not a very horey to me since i dun really fancy arabic food but.. the experience to be on cruise.. pergh!! amazing!!.

Say hello to Nile Maxim. :)
Those are some of the delegates from South East Asia, Middle East and Western Europe.

My plate was not yet emptied but i just couldn't help myself to join some of them who had already left the table went to the balcony to witness such magnificent view of Nile River. Lampu-lampu indah berkerlipan sepanjang tebing sungai. You could also see so many more exclusive cruises along the river. Ade antara hotel yang 5 stars above tu, siap ada cruise diorang sendiri tau!! kerlass!


Posing at Maxim's balcony

I have a question here.

Selain ingin melihat kehebatan Pyramid yang sungguh luarbiasa, menikmati keindahan Sungai Nil yang menakjubkan, Egyptian food yang enak, shopping, u all rasa, why ramai pelancong suka pergi Egypt???

hehehehee... some of you guys already have the answer!! I can see u're smiling there!!! :D

WHAT I"M GONNA SHOW YOU, THEY ARE TOTALLY CLASSIFIED (eh, dah macam transformer pulak). If you're under 18, please seek your parents' permission before click to view it.

video

Her name is Leila. She presented to us The Belly Dance. Peewit!!

video

(I am so sorry. For some reason , the audio is lost in middle of the way. It could be happened when i transferred the video from .mov to .avi. Takpe, layan je la ek.)


OK. Dah boleh tutup mulut dah semua!!! :D


Kagum bukan? Malam tu kan, mesti semua atuk2, pakcik2, abang2 wished that Leila akan menjelma dalam mimpi and gelek2 lagi. Hahahaha.

Maghda told me that Egyptian girls even a little one, they could move their belly by default!! :)
I tried it out when i got back to my room but, i was more looked like a person who had just been hit by electric shock!! LOL.

****

My prayer was answered when Encik Mukhtar and two other delegates from Mumbai agreed to visit the Pyramids on our last day in Cairo. Since all of us have the same flight to catch up by 6.30 pm to Dubai, we had enough time in the morning to do that. Yeeha!

There are 3 main pyramids at Giza and of course the great Sphinx yang famous itu. Meh check kat bawah ni;


Actually there are hundred of pyramids in Egypt but the main that menjadi tumpuan pelancung sedunia are the one in Giza Complex. They are Pyramid of Khufu (Father, the oldest and largest), Khafre (Son, 2nd largest) and Menkaure (Grandson).

Seriously, when people asked me what is the purpose of the Pyramids, i have no definite answer to tell even i have seen them with my own eyes. What i know is that long time ago, they kept the king (Firaun lah tu) and queen mummies in there together with the whole harta karun. But now, all the mummies have no longer in there. There are all kept in Egyptian Museum (xsempat pegi. :()

Pyramid Khufu is huge, so huge, melambangkan kekuatan raja pada ketika itu and i kept thinking how people at that time built this one of the oldest wonder in the world. It was great if i could bring myself in. Unfortunately, by the time we bought the ticket, they said we could only spend time outside the Pyramids since they're already a lot of people in there. Sigh..

Some people explained on what makes the Great Pyramid of Giza so unique? It is the only one to have a magnificent grand gallery in its ascending system. The purpose of this gallery still remains a mystery. ooo.. spooky. Disebabkan x dapat masuk, i tried to search the picture inside the Pyramid from google and found this;


It's time for more pictures. Enjoy! :)


At the Pyramid of Khufu
***********************

Sangat huge! Tinggi macam gunung.

Ramai pelancong!! Spot me?

That's the entrance to enter the Khufu. Ade Pak Guard kat situ. But the original entrance is the one on top of it. Can you see it?

I was wondering cemanala diorang angkat batu-batu ni dulu. Sangat WOW!!

Now i'm at the back of the Khufu. It's time to visit the 2nd one, The Khafre.

The Khafre


Few poses before we left Khafre for The Sphinx. Owh we skipped The Menkaure as our tour guide said it 's just the same as the rest. Lagipun hari dah makin panas. Alasan.

Next, we went to visit The Sphinx. What's he? The Sphinx has the body of a lion and the face of a man. It is a giant limestone sculpture in the Giza Plateau. The Sphinx was put in front of a pharoh's pyramid (The Khafre) to protect the pharoh's ka. (The ka is the spirit of the pharoh, and the body must remain intact for the ka to recognize its body). Ni kepercayaan diorang la ni.

The Sphinx

Hidung dia dah lama tercedera. Might be due to weathering and erosin.

Sphinx the protector!!

We are in front of The Sphinx, The Menkaure (yang nampak jauh tu) and The Khafre.

Nadine, i sent this kiss on behalf of you. Teeehehehe. :)


Owh, it has come to an end. I am so thankful to Allah that i'd been given this chance to come to Egypt and experience living here even for few days only. I will keep my memory in Cairo forever. Muahs!!
