Scary flashflood

Yesterday, I had a talk at INTEC for the AUSMAT programmes-on the lifestyle and such in Oz. Lesley was also there, for the same purpose...except that Guri was just to accompany his wife, and to meet little Adam after two months.

I got this Paton's Macadamia Chocolates for my birthday... and some gifts from Jeanette too.

After the talk, Sham picked us for dinner at Concorde. It poured very heavily as we got into the car. Once we arrived at Section 2, the traffic was so bad that we were stucked for almost an hour (or so). Seeing the stormwater overflowing from the drains and some cars parked outside the school soaked really made me scared.

I couldn't imagine if something bad happened-esp. with Adam in my arms.

Luckily, the downpour slowed down and we turned back and took another junction. Phew! We could see a lamp post and a tree plowing out and almost hit some houses. What a view! I'm sure Lesley and Guri couldn't forget the incident...

Jom Masuk U! :Outreach Ipoh

It's the first Misi Akademik I joined. The mission is to provide as much info to the prospective students, esp. the school leavers.

Sounds simple, but it actually took a lot of patience to do the task. At one stage, we were sorta announcing and touting "Who wants to enter the world class university with the cheapest study fees?" Hahaha.

Rusdin & I distributing flyers... The pix of us explaining about the programs offered by UiTM is not here. (Ahem...we were busy with the task that we didn't have the time to smile for the camera).

Along was also there (am not sure whether she really did was she was supposed to at the counter though). So, before I headed off to the hotel, we took a snap of photo.

This is just a photo of a funny signboard of a restaurant. Note the spelling 'koitiau'. I have seen various spellings for the word 'kuetiau' that triggerred boisterous merriment or convulsive laughter. E.g: keow teow, koayteow, kuehtiau.

Endau and MIL's koleh kacang

Back to Endau for a few days... Not really for a holiday, but as usual...we couldn't really relax as in my hometown. There were too many things to do.

Plus, I had to listen to the lengthy rebuke. I thought we were advanced enough to standby a tin of formula (so they don't blame us for fully rellying on brest milk). Unfortunately, they were expecting us to start feeding Adam with semi-solid food. (Hello, it's my boy...I know what I'm doing). Gosh!

Anyway, Sham & I had the chance to leave Adam with MIL for a while, and off we went to Penyabong. Hehehe. Bila lagi nak rasa macam zaman bercinta?

There was nothing much, but we could breathe the fresh air while holding hands...just like the honeymoon days. Oh yes... and to have some crazee pix taken too! :P

Other than that, My MIL conducted a small 'kenduri' ... she was busy with her authentic 'koleh kacang' that she claimed was the one and only one in Semanyir. Hahaha...
Good that she proved to me she was right! I have never liked 'koleh kacang'...but hers, I could eat more than 3 pieces!

The funny part was while we were reciting Yasin, Kak Mie rushed outside to get Haziq who was lying near the drain (his legs were in the drain, but his upper body was lying on the floor). There was nothing wrong- he just felt asleep while playing. Hahaha... Teruk betul :P
