I'm trying NOT to fall asleep after subuh which is quite a challenge seeing everyone (that's just Zukry and Amni though) is comfortable on the bed snoozing. So, I took my macbook out and thought I'd go watch a webinar but that's not really working~ Abstaining self from going further into the WWW, I thought let's just put something up on the blog instead. Hehehe...
So last week... Not just to me, but I think to the whole Malaysia nation surprise - we actually changed the ruling government for the first time after Merdeka. Hah! I wasn't really anticipating anything but I voted for the first time and my vote creates major Malaysian history! Whoa! I have my reasons why didn't vote before... mainly due to the fact I WAS located in Miri (but I think it's more than that)
It was a family affair - the voting day. I drove all the way from Melawati to Kuala Ampang with KRU music on the radio. Yes, KRU! We were at the Konsert Gergasi the weekend before... So the demam continued. I bought their compilation album and boom, volume up - ke tepi, ke tepi...! Baby was done by the time I arrived. Mak, Bapak and Mizan were in the queue waiting for their turn.
I was talking to the officer at site, after I was done - a curious crowd was asking if I was 'kena tiger' for wearing slipper! Hehehe. I was amused, I just replied 'No lah...' without further explanation. I was curious about the long line... I know my number bilangan dan saluran I got from online, why can't I just go to the saluran ~ itu aje. But we got to do it manually jugak when we arrived. Sabau ajelah. It was somewhat nerve wrecking, I was nervous to cast my vote! Everything was so formal and the area was so quite except for the voice of the officer who was calling out name and IC number out! Casted my vote. PANGKAH on two papers - one for ADUN, one for PARLIAMENT... Bismillah, masukkan dalam designated boxes. We had to share our family outing, so I wefie with the folks and we're done for the day!
Anyway, so what do we do with the free holidays. Wednesday was the day we got off to vote, Thursday and Friday will be off-days if the then, opposition team wins - and they did, and then... it's the weekend. 5 days off! Zukry immediately came up with a plan to go to lepak in LANGKAWI! We no longer hang-out in this Melawati area peeps, we go big - fly to an island. The island where the current 93-years old president won his parliament seat! Don't PLAY-PLAY :)
Unfortunately, I was called to the office on Friday for a management paper to be presented on the next Monday - so, we left immediately after I finished my discussion. Thank god I did most of my part on Tuesday so it was all minor work for me~ Phew! Off we go to the airport, fly-off to Langkawi.
Zukry told me that we were going to stay at a small hut in the middle of paid field! So, this is the second experience after the Ubud Bali one, earlier in January~ Here's the airbnb place. It was cute, it was like a mini kampung for our mini unit, it was perfect!
So the cuti begins. We were playing tourist most of the time. Visited the Makam Mahsuri (which was fun because they had like a mini Kedah there so a few rumah Kampung Kedah style were installed!), went Galeria Perdana (timely since Tun M is the PM again!), enjoyed watching penguins and a seal in the Underwater World and obviously had good food and a little of the sea breeze - Amni taksuka mandi laut --- so sekejap aje tepi laut. Huhuhu...
Ended the trip with a meet-up with our friend at the airport before we flew back. They resided in Langkawi. They just came back from the voting off days in their Kampung kat KL! Hihihi)
