That One Person

Phew! School's out and I'm all relax at the moment. No hassle of fixing breakfast, searching hi and lo for MyC's missing stuff in the morning nor putting up with her tantrums. Yes, she does that... my fifteen year old still throws tantrums. No wonder she did not last long at MRSM Langkawi...hehe...she could not be the same there!

With the school holidays, everyone in the family wants to be with this person. The person who would cook scrumptious lunches, who would allow the children to play in her bedroom.... lepak-lepak until they turn the room upside down. The person is my mother, the children's Opah. Here's one for the album.....



Here's Opah with some of her grandchildren....

 
Here's Opah with her nephew, Shazalli....





 Her adorable great grand-daughters...Alisya & Aqish...

Well, Opah is not the only reason we're looking forward to.... hmm....


 ..hehe...rambutans and of course this fella, Qarim...our official photographer so that we could cam-whore at every angle and at every event ....

So let's balik kampung... er..in my case here....balik bandaraya Ipoh!

..lovely family, lili..and enjoy your time in Ipoh..pakmat used to be at anderson school..form3..long ago..and stayed at tiger lane, off tambun road..

..take care in ipoh..

Lili said...

Hehehe....Pakmat...I'm still here in Penang and won't be back in Ipoh till Hari Raya Haji. The other half is still working and I have loads of unsettled business to see through.

About your short stint in Ipoh, I think I've read that posting of yours. Nice, eh, that Anderson School. I went to Raja Perempuan school until std 6 before we all moved to Butterworth. And I'm still stuck here!

Thanks for dropping by. Jangan main banjir ye, pakmat!

Lili,

I take it that you and Dato' Shazalli are cousins. He's an MRSM Kuantan old boy.

Hati-hati masa drive balik Ipoh tu ye...

Lili said...

Oldstock,

Hehe! Yes... Dato' Sri and I are cousins. And if you check Doc Faisal's photo he is the one seated second row, first from left. That chap loves teka-teki! He was quite upset when my daughter did not stay put in MRSM Langkawi... muahaha!

InsyaAllah..will drive back to Ipoh petang hari raya...

So it's Shazalli that you referred to in your comment in my blog as the person who likes teka-teki.

He is junior to me in Kuantan but I don't think he knows me personally. I ingat dia pun sebab some mutual friends mentioned him by nickname, during a time we hanged out at makan place in Keramat/Setiawangsa a few years back.

Anyways, I'd like to give a teka-teki for you to ask him but the one at the top of my head doesn't seem appropriate lah (sexual innuendo... again!). Just goes to show the things that I memorise easily are trivial stuff, hahaha...

Lili said...

Hahaha! Is the nickname, 'Pakya/pakia'?

Well, although we are close, we seldom meet because of the nature of his work. Maybe once awhile we exchange news via sms, more so during Rayas.

So save the teka-teki for us, your blog commenter, sure gempak punya! Hahaha!

wa.... lama tak tengok muka your mom (mak lang). It has been very very very long time. Kak Lili, nasroun jarang pi belah utara. Al-maklumlah, byk journey menuju ke East Coast. But if ada kesempatan ke utara, I will surely call u. Abg mey, abg badrul semua dah lama tak jumpa. Masuk level anak2 kak lili semua mmg dah tak kenal ler. But it's a good thing that we meet here.

lili said...

Hi Nasroun! So good of you to come by again here! Memang lama dah tak jumpa kita ni. Nasib baik kak Lili selalu gak dapat jumpa your mom kalau ada majlis kenuri kawin ke apa.
Abang Badrul masih kat Kajang and he is with Kem. Pengajian Tinggi, so you can bet he is always outstation! Weekend dia balik ke rumah dia kat Proton City tu. Bawala abah jalan2 kat sana... tempat dia best macam resort!

Insyallah, nanti kita jumpa gak. Balik tak kenuri kawin anak Yong kat Kuala Kangsar this weekend?

Kak lili,
Anak kak yong kat KK nasroun tak pi. ada urusan sikit. abah dgn mak je yg pi kut. and maybe faisal & azmil (youngest) follow skali. Anyway, suddenly it pop up from my mind about 1 thing... Hezrie (anak arwah kak maznah)kat mana skrg? dah lama sgt tak dgr berita about him...any update? the last time jumpa masa dia tinggal kat area tmn koperasi polis fasa 2 kalau tak silap. hmm...

lili said...

...Hezri sekarang dah kahwin, anaknya dah tiga. Tu yg kat gambar atas... Alisya n Balqis, anak-anak dia ler. Sorang lagi boy, nama Umar Rayyan. Aah... you all dulu close kan masa arwah tinggal kat Taman Selasih Fasa 2. Hezri baru jer pindah dari kulai ke KL tapi tak sure dia tinggal kat mane. Baru pindah dalam sari dua ni.

Adik Hezri, Ezwan... Nasroun tak ingat ke? Ezwan pun dah kawin..tinggal kat Ara Damansara. Bila2 nanti kak Lili ajak dia pi umah Nasroun or kita jumpa kat umah abah. Ezwan ingat sangat kat Tok 'Ndak dia!

Anak arwah no 3, Amirah, kerja kat Tourism Malaysia. Nak kawin dah pun next arch, insyaallah. Tapi urusan mak tiri deranglah. Yang bongsu, Umai, masih belajar kat UiTM Arau.
