Hello...Apa Khabar? I hope everyone had a fantastic weekends....

As for me,i had the worst of all...i shouldnt be complaining but it's the truth.. i did...    

Last weekend i thought i would be having a great time in KL with my children since i'm gonna spend 3 nights there but it turns out the other way around.

I had panic attack that makes me feel dizzy, difficulty in breathing n my heart pounded so fast! It happened at my cousin's house. Everything happen so fast...I had just arrived in KL n before you know it my sis iha had pick me up n off we go to the house of this cousin of ours. 

Actually i've been occupied with so much housework lately n on the day that i left to KL i was so exhausted...what more when the phone kept on ringing giving me news about our friend having liver problem is critically ill. Agaknye i ni lemah semangat. Finally i end up feeling sick n not going anywhere! Till now...i'm feeling weak n uncomfortable...

I should have known better cos i cannot over stress myself. I've been saying to myself that i'll do the housework at my own pace when my maid is not around to assist me. Instead i overdo it n i'm pretty serious about doing it!
My hubby use to say that whenever i'm without a maid...i'm like having a riffle in my hands n i will shoot at anybody that mess around with my work! That bad huh!

So due to my mistakes i end up having my gastric back n i'm trying to take it slow n i hope these uncomfortable feelings will go off in no time.

What sadden me most is i couldnt accompany my hubby to visit our friend at the hospital...i just cant...i have this kind of feeling like *dizzy* n butterflies in my stomache whenever i thought of him. I'm scared i'll faint!
I hope this feelings will go off soon so i can follow my hubby for the next visit n give some support n consolation to his wife. But i'll never forget to include them in my 'doa'.

One thing for sure i have my maid back n it's a great RELIEVE!!

And not only that... my anak bongsu... Lukman is also back. Now i can sleep soundly when there's more people in the house. Agaknye... I'm afraid n NOT happy to be alone!!

I guess i will have to promise again n again not to over stress myself n that to take everything slow n try to avoid being anxious. AND learn through my mistakes!!!

Been very busy lately...finding time to update what's happening.

On the 4th.October, our new YDP Datin 
Seri Dato Rohani Abdullah n her husband,
the new KSN made their first official
visit to Perak.

a welcoming speech for our guest of honour by our pengerusi of perak.

something for remembrance...a plaque

Next...we took our guests to the old
folks home... Rumah Sri Kenangan Ulu Kinta.

it may not be much but they were so happy with the gifts ...

We even cater lunch for the old folks...

performances done by the old folks.....

A very different kind of feelings when 
we're there....sad n.....
Wonder if we'll be taken care of when 
we're helpless n OLD!

That very evening i tagged along my hubby
to Damai Laut, Lumut. He's having a work
shop with his staff.

Having my leisure hour.....what else.... watching the tv...n i manage to snap some nice pictures. Sadly though cant manage to scroll the website...the rooms have no access to the internet!

The 2nd night we had a barbecue....

Actually it was the eve of our 28th.
aniversary....may we'll be madly in love forever n ever till death do us part....

So having said that...the very next day i'm
back to Ipoh leaving him with his precious golf game.

I had a lovely time with my friends at the fund raising high-tea n with the survivors of breast cancer.

So i hope there will be more surprises for me cos next week will be my birthday....
Gee...i love the month of October!

Till then...cheerio!!

Howdie! Hope everyone had a marvellous weekend...

Well mine was splendid cos' my angels are back home for the weekend....

But they had a little bit of misfortune during the journey when one of the tyre was badly punctured! It was not only their fact that friday night there were also a few cars that broke down along the highway.
They were lucky indeed when staff of the plus highway helped them change the spare tyre!

So to those who's travelling from KL to the north highway just be careful especially somewhere along rawang. We were informed that a few weeks ago a few boxes of nails were negligently drop out from a lorry! So watch out!

As usual whenever the children are back i'll be busy as the beeesss... in the kitchen!!
Besides rice, dalca, baked chicken,steam kerapu fish n some salads i even make mee curry with some shrimps, fish balls n some crabs meat! Too bad eh...i didnt take any pictures.

But i did remember to take pictures of the dessert...ahaa!'s only the orange poppy seed cake. This is one of my favourite!
