I’m back from my weekend trip to Penang! I haven’t gone back in ages and what made the trip more meaningful is that I brought along Mr Fiance together with me. It was his first time to Penang, so he is ecstatic, I am ecstatic, my bro and family too was ecstatic hehe.
First day : 15/08/08
Every month on the 15th marks our monthly anniversary together, so last Friday was our 2 year 5 months anniversary. Dah 2thn setengah aku dgn die ni, satu rship yg sungguh menguji kesabaran tp sgt besh. Tak ilang lagi dupdap di hati bile bertembung mata..ewah. Haha jiwang jap ek. Okok back to the story..since we were required by my big boss to arrive Penang before lunch, kitorang gagahkan diri la bgn pepagi buta and left Shah Alam at 6.30am. Awal tak hingatt..i only thought of dozing off most of the journey tp malangnya tak bole langsung bcoz kene melayan cik abg sorang yg tengah kejakunan, sesket kene layan pertanyaan die, pastu dlm dok benti nak beli buah nak segarkan mata die nak berak la pulok..aiyoo mcm layan budak kecik but most importantly I have to monitor his driving tau2 je la zone Perak ni is zone speed trap and roadblock. Nasib ler I informed him beforehand because on that day ada 2 roadblock and nasib tak kene tahan.
We arrived at my house around 11.30am, transferred our stuff to my dad’s car and off we went to Batu Feringghi at Park Royal Penang as my mum had already booked the rooms there for a one night stay (not a one night stand eh haha)
semangat amik gambo dlm kete..walaupun mata tu ya ampun tahap xleh nak bukak dah! While my dad drove, both of my parents were so enthusiastic to show him around mcm tour guide je..di sebelah kiri anda ialah..di sebelah kanan anda pula ialah hehe, we arrived just in d nick of time for Friday prayers, so jejaka² sume pegi ler masjid leaving me and my mum behind. Wah ni first time die p solat skali dgn my dad..i wonder how he felt? dup dap ka..huhu ntahla, I din ask him.
Excuse the plastic bag yaa..hehe this is the room that we stayed, my mum booked two rooms side by side. He slept together with my lil bro, imagine them conquering a bed each..ish jeles gile ok while I had to share rooms wif my parents..huhu, dengki tak dpt green light lagi muahaha. Tp papehal pon thanks a lot to my parents who sponsored us for our stay here. If not, we had to pay for one of the room but in the end, they ended up sponsoring. 🙂 After we had lunch and all, in the evening we all lepaked at the beach front and swimming pool. My parents went off to haf their evening walks by the seaside leaving the three of us behind. I wanted to ride on the parasailing (alaa yg parachute yg kene bwk dgn motorboat tu) but he din wanna join me..last2 we took pictures je.
At night, we had a buffet BBQ dinner at the hotel itself, again sponsored by my parents. It was supposed to be a hefty dinner supposedly wif its hefty price because when my family last came here there were tonnes of menu to choose from but bile dorang nak bwk kitorang dtg, tgk alahai ciputnya selection of menu..tp takpe, kitorang tak kesah pon. Ni pon dah considered mewah and meriah dah for us. Alhamdulillah 🙂
Second day : 16/08/08
The next day before checking out, we spend most of our time again at the hotel itself. We played table tennis together, as usual la Mr Fiance nak tunjuk lagak yg die reti main la tu..eleh mcm la aku ni tak reti gak main. We also swam in the pool together (well not exactly swam la bcoz memasing tak reti berenang) haha tau berendam je. mmg bes mcm dak kecik je rasa while my mum just layankan je la kerenah kitorang. At first Mr Fiance mcm memalu nak masuk, katenye segan depan mak aku (ah poyo jek). I could at least float myself and swam to the other end of the pool without kicking too much of bubbles but die..being typical him yg tanak ngaku kalah masya allah melantun2 air abeh terpercik kat sume org..dahla badan dah bam2 bulat hehehe..dah nak sama cam dugong je.
Lepas dah puas jadi dak kecik, kitorang headed to USM, my parents did the same thing again, showed him the various landmarks around Penang whilst driving smp ke hospital tempat aku dilahirkan sume dorang bwk hehe. Aku ni dgn bangganya tunjuk SGGS! skolah aku la tuuu hehe. Mmg la nampak cam mende remeh je but I enjoyed it, he enjoyed it. If u must know, dat is exactly what he did wif me masa zaman kitorang baru nak kenal2, baru nak mengenali hati budi memasing..ewah jiwang balik dahh die slalue je bwk aku ronda area Klang tunjuk sekolah die kat mane, tempat lepak die kat mane..port2 mkn yg best ke ape ke..itu pasal gue skang dah terer sket area Klang thanks to him lor hehe..sampai org dah bleh kate Klang tu is my 2nd hometown la kire..so now I’m doing the same thing back to him, tunjuk die port2 kat Penang plak 🙂
Anyways..reason for going to USM because my cousin was having her convocation on that day and since she is flying off to Houston the following day for the next 4 months and won’t be seeing her for Raya this year…we made our time to meet up wif my aunt and her for her big day. Her bf was there wif her..haa so Mak Ngah bakal dpt menantu tak lamo lagi gak la tu hehe…
right after the ceremony, we headed back home..but rather than using the Penang Bridge to head home, we used the ferry..cam biasala bakal pak mertua nak tunjuk bakal menantu the final sightseeing before heading home..bakal menantu pun excited first time nak naik ferry hehe..
reached home, played a round of badminton together, rode on my bro’s bicycle..he then played with football with my bro while I went inside and watched the Olympics. At night we had dinner outside, watched more Olympics, lepaked and dats it really..activity filled with fun and laughter. Everyone was in a relaxed mood, takyah nak control2…sembang mcm kitorang ni dah dah kawin…sangat bes. sangat sukeeee…
basically to sum everything up, everything was a blast thanks to my parents yg sanggup sponsor kami yg tak berkemampuan ni hehehe almaklumla dah tetengah bulan ni. Mekasih gak to my parents yg skang dah bleh menerima relationship kami dgn seadanya, dpt menerima die seadanya without any bantahan. Dulu masa awal2 perkenalan, we went through a lot as my dad weren’t really keen on him in the first place but look at us now, 2 years later alhamdulillah berkat kesabaran walaupun belum berumahtangga lagi but at least the idea of him to come down to Penang wif me and spend d weekend together wif my family was my dad’s idea..die yg nak bawak bakal menantu die jln2 hehe..aihh sejuk ati aku. Even masa kat perkarangan USM tu pon when we met up wif a few of my parents’ colleagues, dgn smgtnya my parents introduce to their frens their “bakal menantu”…sejuk ati lagi hahaha. Mmg i couldn’t stop smiling the whole weekend. Walaupun pipiku nampak tembam dlm gambo2 ni but I dun care..hehe, well at first I cared la mcm pelik je dh elok2 turun ke 46kg camne bleh tembam lagi muka ni..ish pelik betul but as I write my entry here, bile kenangkan balik what happened over these past few days, I’m very, very, very happy..! This is such a great way to celebrate our monthly anni..
Lepas raya ni….dah kene start full swing preparation for our wedding pulak..!
