"Banyak Akai!"

I was alone the whole week, last week. Not really so, ehem... since the hubby was at home in the evenings; usually at almost Maghrib. 

My baby, MyC, was away in Shah Alam representing her school for a workshop. She was among eight students selected for the T***** Eco Youth, running for the national level environmental project competition scheduled in October this year.
Her school came out top last year.So this year sees all the previous champions taking part, since its inception ten years ago.

and two representatives from the sponsor

Looking at her picture here, I realized that she is getting taller by the day! Well, it's in our genes... hikhik!

Anyway, as I was somewhat 'merdeka' last week, I spent my time planning for Miera's upcoming kenduri at my mom's place this weekend in Ipoh. It will be on small scale and guests are mainly families and relatives.
There were pre-wedding dinnner to foresee, cakes, and breakfast for the next day to think about. Bagus jugak... hal masak-masak, serah kat akak... bab-bab duit serah kat adik!

Other times I spent reading and finishing all the books that I bought earlier this year. Now, tak ada buku... macam mana?

That whole week, I deprived myself of coffee; thus making me rather lethargic and sometimes erratic. But this morning....dah tak boleh tahan...had a mug for breakfast at my usual hang-out with friends. Kat umah stock nescafe dah sengaja tak replenish. Phew, lega! Mengalahkan orang undergo cold-turkey withdrawal... (Ni apa cerita? Oh, iklan!)

And when you're alone at home, you missed being a mother. I had no lunch to cook. I mean a complete lunch. Masak tetap masak! I ate what I like. Mostly clear-based soups with lots of stuffed fish paste veges... hmm...sedap....stuffed bitter gourd, green chillies, and lots of greens for a good home-made yong tau foo. Rice? I hardly found during that one week. Only one night tu, hubby ajak makan kat luar. Pekena la nasi sikit dengan tomyam. Not that I'm on a diet, saja tak lalu makan nasi. Nanti la balik Ipoh... makan tak ingat dunia.
 
All in all, last week was the most boring week in my life. It turned out MyC had a great time...

Lili,

I need you to tell me where's the best place to eat mee kicap in Ipoh :-)

Oldstock,

There are a few but I usually go to a stall in Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar, right in the heart of Ipoh... somewhere near the pasar besar Ipoh, Telekom Malaysia and opposite McD.
They called it Mee Kicap Mat Jasak. Or you can try at Greentown Mall.

Selalu ke berjauhan dari your dara? Tenteram ke you kat rumah sensorang? Soklan2 kepo tapi perlu dijawab, hehe (sambil katop mulut)

Tak penah berenggang dengan my Girl tu. Itu yg weng aje duduk umah sensorang. WalauponG, hehe, I membizikan diri. Kalau ada dia boleh buat kawan gaduh-gaduh manja!

Oldstock,

According to my brother there's a branch of Mat Jasak Mee Kicap shop next to Pizza Hut Ipoh. Pls ask for directions if you're in Ipoh. That Pizza Hut is a stand alone restaurant, not the one at Ipoh Kinta City.
