Raya at Kuala Terengganu

Went for a short trip to KT on saturday, wife has family over there. So we went for a last shot Hari Raya visit since it is still Syawal.
Pushed off very early and arrived in KT at 10 am.. just in time for a late breakfast… Kak Ming (wife’s cousin) prepared a table full of food.. Nasi Dagang, Popiah, Lopak Tike and lots more…. Really loved the Nasi Dagang…. was told it was the nasi dagang from Chendering.. Spent the rest of the morning at her house… Wife and family simply had loads of fun catching up… (padahal selalu je jumpa)…
Highlight of the day was Alya doing a bit of catwalk wearing Kak Ming’s high heel Smile That really did provide us with a bit of laugh.
In the afternoon, wife and MIL wanted to shop for batik so we went to a boutique owned by my wife’s best friend… Enira’s Batik, located at Bazar Warisan. They had a catching up session while browsing through the batiks at the store. MIL and wife definitely was fascinated with the new batik design… digital batiks… very exclusive as it was. They really did have a field day. Both of them bought enough batik that the owner just had to smile.
Then on the way back we made a few stop… one at Keropok Lekor BTB, currently this is the place to buy Keropok Lekor. Then made one more stop near Penarek to buy some deep fried delicacies… Ikan, Udang and Sotong Celup Tepung… simply delish!
Overall it was a good trip…. and will be making it again if time permits..

Too Long Too Hectic

The past few weeks have been hectic, I don’t really know what happened but time just flew and I forgot entirely to update the blog Frown
Sorry if my absent mindedness causes a lot of anxiety Razz (like ppl read the blog pon!)
So we had a splendid raya, visited relatives as usual, went to more houses this year, bringing along Alya, she behaved nicely like a good girl she was, the only thing is she get hots easily and will make a fuss if we stay too long at a house Razz She likes to be on the move!
Then after the raya it was busy busy school days again. Last week I only went to school for 1 day, the rest was spent with the district volleyball team, I was entrusted to coach the Under15 team. We only had 4 days to train…. the Girls managed to get into the semi final and left with the Bronze Medal Smile Was really proud of them. Sadly, the Boys didn’t even pass the group prelims.. happy and sad at the same time Big Frown
While at the games I was informed that I would have to go to a Mini Games Carnival and was appointed as the referee for Volleyball. The wife also called to tell me that I was also appointed as an invigilator for SPM. So that means that this week I will only have 2 days to go to school, tomorrow and the day after. Next week I will no longer be at school. Didn’t expect that it would be this hectic at year end because usually there will be no more activities at this time of the year.
But I welcome it anyway, because I like it Smile You may have expected that anyway Smile Because when it is hectic, it means that I get more done. Plus, my time with the students have been realy maximized and there’s nothing more that I can do with/for them. The baton has been passed to them. I do hope that they would do well in Biology this year.
Best of all, my wife has been very understanding throughout this hectic period, considering the fact that I will be leaving her again next week Frown I think that’s all that I could jot down today, probably I would do another entry after this. Smile
