Balik Kampung

Hey, how you guys been? Hope all is well.I was in Peninsular for about 6 days and heading to Labuan now. I like it when the flight is not full. I have the whole 3 seats to myself on row 16 today. I think this is a rare case for flight bound to Miri. So, I'm comfy with a slight stomachache probably from whatever I have shoved in my mouth these past few days... I was a little nervous about going back to Bagan Serai. Nothing new to bring - read: Baby, luckily nobody actually bring up the issue but I think all would want to especially my parents... Sorry, Mak. No news yet. But somehow with hectic schedule to fulfill, I was just glad that the whole siblings decided to gather in the same non-raya weekend. So, that's nice.

The driving back was alright, I didn't sleep much, although there were times I was caught dozing off while Zukry was actually trying to make conversation. After arriving, the little ones was in amazement with Zukry's New IPad playing games, I had like 30 mins sleep - only after much persistent of my MIL. Boleh tak? huhuhu...

That night, we went to Kuala Gula for their famous soft crab. Menu of the night was obviously seafood. We were on a floating restaurant where the waves of the river actually got me a little dizzy - seasick like. Zukry's nephew had the same problem, but his headache somewhat disturbed his appetite while another was just afraid of the fact the restaurant moves almost like the time he experienced the earth quake last month! Despite all that, the food was lovely. I could have enjoyed more if I didn't eat that much the whole day and was not affected with the seasick-thing.

On Sunday, we went to The Lost World of Tambun! Most unfortunate, I didn't get to use my new gadget, the Lumix GX1 since the battery drained off and I forgot to bring its charger (left it in KL, silly me!) Plus, Zukry and I was busy bonding in the water. Can arr, like that? hehehe... We tried their slides, but not the longest swirly one. But the one we tried was really fun. The long queue and wait wasn't that fun though. The little ones were seen at the kids area playing with all sorts of water slides. Awish - I've mentioned about him before, was really just having a blast throwing himself in the water while his brother was busy worrying in case he drowned! Well, I was scared too but he was like "Hey look, I'm OK" - huhuhu...

All in all, it was indeed a time well spent with everyone! It has been a while since my last trip to a water park. I think the last one was during my University days in Malacca with my girlfriends! Way back when... ;) great time.

I think the conclusion of this entry is that to me, Family is my life. I wouldn't have lived as well without them. My own, and Zukry's. Being away from them, makes being together an effort. With that, I appreciate the time spent even more. I hope though, with more money earn away - I will never ever forgot my dues. (please don't take me for granted too yeah...) But yeah, I believe in Karma. If I don't do it to others inshaAllah adalah balasannya.
