It's been more than a week that I'm not updating this blog. As I've mentioned in the entry Tetamu yang di nanti, hubby's family as well as my best friend were here in Japan to visit us for one week. They arrived on the Apr 28 and Mok De's family went back to Malaysia on last Friday while Deja took her flight back to Malaysia on Saturday morning.
Along with their arrival here in Japan, we were blessed with lots of foods from Malaysia too. Deja brought along my all time favourite kuih tat nenas, sambal ikan bilis with tempe specially cooked by her mother, kerepek pedas batu pahat, ayam goreng KFC, also a sandal and shoe that fitted perfectly in my Kaki gergasi, as well as English books for Nazhan.
While Mok De's family brought along air Ribena, air sirap, sos pencicah, a dozen of budu, ikan bilis, ikan masin, mushroom soups, maggi Mee, all sorts of flours, kerepek pisang, kuih bangkit, beras jasmine super wangi, and lots of other foods .. you named it!. Pendek kata 2/3 daripada isi perut luggage diorang ialah untuk barang2 makanan kami je hik3x.
We had a blast week traveling around Japan by car. Thanks to "Cik Ody" (Honda Odyssey RB1) who has been such a darling to travel without creating any unexpected scene during the whole trip.
I'll update about the trip later because I haven't select the best pictures (gambar2 sampai 8GB huhuhuhu) to share with you guys; but stay tune for the latest update in my Travel & living Segment as I can ensure you that I'm going to share loads of info and photos soon. Bawak
Throughout the whole week, Nazhan enjoy having his Pak Long Adam and Mama Mia (hubby's little cousins) as his play-mate as well as he enjoys being pampered with lots of loves and attention from his Wan De, Aki De and Cik Deja. Although it was only for a week, he bonded so well with them that even until this morning( 2 days after they went back to Malaysia), he keeps calling for Cik Deja, Pak Long Adam and Mama Mia's name while having his breakfast.
As for hubby and I, we were also having the lonesome feeling when Mok De's family and Deja went back to Malaysia. It feels weird when our house became 'soundless' again compared to last week when they were around us.
"I feel closer to my country than ever. There is no longer a feeling of lonesome isolation. Instead; peace. I return without fearing prejudice that once bothered me for I know that people practice cruel bigotry in their ignorance, not maliciously" Paul Robeson quotes (American Actor, Singer and Activist, 1898-1976)
Pssssttt: rasa macam nak balik Malaysia untuk internship/conference lagi lah, rindu membuak-buak pada family.
