Ayah was woken up at 4.30a.m on Chinese New Year Day and had to rush to the hospital and open the lab for an emergency angio procedure. He only came back around 10:00a.m and tried to catch up on his sleep - only to be called back to the hospital just before 12:00 noon. Apparently, the same patient which his team did an angioplasty on that morning kept getting arrested. (Errr...NOT by the police, by the way."Arrested" as in - his "heart arrested". Hehehe!) Anyway, Ayah came back just after 2:00p.m. Half of the day which was a public holiday gone...and this is quite normal and we're all quite used to it.
Not wanting to let the day go to waste, but, at the same time not wanting to go to any busy shopping malls in the event that Ayah might be called back to the hospital again (and I might end up with a pout 4 batu panjang if that were to happen...Hehehe!) we went to check on the new house. We normally would go there on Sundays to clean/mop, etc. and then have a small picnic there. But as Ayah was away in Kobe last weekend, we had to give it a miss. So, yesterday was somewhat like a "Qadha" for the rigmarole.
We reached the house just after 4:00pm, and Daryati and I started our exercise routine a.k.a the cleaning rituals straight away. She was in-charge of the 1st Floor, while I tackled the Ground Floor, while Ayah handled Hasya's bedroom. Or rather, Hasya's BED. Hehehehe! Well, Ayah had a valid excuse to snooze away thanks to his Sleepless in PPUM events in the last 24 hours. But, I doubt if he really got any sleep at all as Hasya and Hilman were also occupying the bed, each trying to push the other off the bed!
Oh yes! By the way, we found Hilman's bedroom set the other day, but, due to the long CNY break, they could only deliver it after 20th of this month. So,this "pushing-each-other-off-of Hasya's bed" will continue until he gets his own bed...Sigh...
*** CHEESE! Pic of kids taken in Hasya's room with her new bedroom set.
*** Hasya and Hilman - "pushing-each-other" session.
Anyway, remember in my last posting when I wrote that our neighbour, Mr. Kang, was a fish tauke? Well, we just found out that we could be taukes, too - tauke sayur! Our courtyard which sits between the main living and the dining room is full of this undergrowth/grass which I swear looks like kangkung!
And, the garden has this crawling thingy which looks like bayam!(Errrr...Ibu, can secure contract to supply to T**CO kah?!! Hahaha!)
*** Kangkung, anyone?!
*** What about bayam?!
(Note to self : Have to find a gardener to tend to the grounds until we move in)
After finishing with the indoor stuff, we went outside to work out on the grounds. Remember when I wrote about the possibility of having a tree-house at the new place? Well, Hilman had since then, changed his mind, and now has requested for a SWIMMING POOL instead (????!!!) Hahahaha! Like how many zeros do you think Mommy and Ayah have to add to the budget if we were to agree to your swimming pool, my dear?! Hmmmmm...tough choice. Tree-house? Swimming Pool? Tree-house? Swimming Pool? Hmmmm....let me see...How much more do we need for a swimming pool? Yeah, right. Another 50 sen... HAHAHA!
*** Possible site for the Tree-house (or swimming pool?!!!)
And, did I mention that there's an Exercise Ground right in front of our new place? So, every time we're there, the kids would spend at least half an hour going on the apparatus, and yesterday was no exception. They have the Waist Twister, the Single Walker, the Sky Walker, the Rowing Machine, and a few others. So, I was telling Ayah - "We have no excuse nanti if we do not have regular exercise!" To which Ayah replied, "Yeah... just like we're not supposed to have any excuse NOW for not taking up jogging seriously when the jogging track is RIGHT in front of our SD house...." HAHAHAHA! Okay, Ayah, you've got a point, there.
*** Some pics of us trying the apparatus. Ada tokoh, or not?! Notice that Ayah is still in his lab attire - just in case the hospital were to call...sigh...
Anyway, for now - our visits to the new house will only be on Sundays. When are we moving in? Hmmmm...we don't really know. It all depends on when we can start the renovation work, which in turn depends on when our preferred contractor is free to work on our house... which in turn depends on when his current project will finish. Until then, if you guys cannot find us anywhere on any of the Sundays, try finding us at our new abode. We'll surely be there - if not working ourselves out with mopping and cleaning the house, or going to the Exercise Ground, we would probably be sweating ourselves silly tending to our kangkung and bayam plots there...
Hmmmmm....No need to get lifetime membership for Cel**rit* Fi*ne*ss la like this!
