MT Weekend...

Last weekend was a "Majlis Tertinggi" weekend.

For the uninitiated, my "Majlis Tertinggi" is an apolitical body consisting of 6 hot-looking and hard-working Mamas (Hahahaha! We wished...) whose friendship has spanned for more than 27 years from WAAAAAAYYYYY back then masa zaman "ketoye-an" when we were schooling in JB until now when all of us are settled all over Klang Valley. I posted a couple of postings on Majlis Tertinggi early last year here and here (which were actually taken from my earlier (now defunct) Friendster's blog for those who may want to be initiated... Hehehe!

A typical MT gathering would involve kids parties and/or MT's kecoh sessions in one room and our spouses watching ASTRO Channels (Sports or Movies) WITHOUT muttering a single word (except when somebody scores a goal) in another room. MORE often than not, we - ahli MTs and hubbies, would have dinner outside - followed by Karaoke sessions at R*d B*x (minus the kids) until about 4:00a.m. Sometimes, we would readjourn at K*yu Na*i Ka*dar @ Mutiara Damansara for teh tarik and would be back home in time before Suboh.We make a point to meet up at least once a month to let off steam.

You can never get a more mismatched groups like the MTs and our spouses, I tell you. You can walk in a room which is like Pasar Borong Selayang having a Kempen Pilihanraya, and when you go to the next room it's like going through a mortuary... (Ok, ok...I may be exaggerating here, but, it's not that far off...Hahaha!). However "mismatched" all of us are, collectively, we have 18 kids between us ranging from ages 14 to 3 years old. Hahahaha!

One thing we realized - all the ahli Majlis Tertinggi are very loud and kecoh (only when we're together, that is. Outside - we're pretty demure and serious. Wakakaka!!! Yeah, right...), while all our husbands are our total opposites. And we don't have any problem with that. The beauty of it all is that our men get along very well with each other, and so we never feel guilty when we have our gatherings because the men would be tagging along every time. (Paksa rela?!!! Hahaha!)

Ooopss! I've digressed.

Anyway, on Saturday, J* (a.k.a Mak Datin SS3) and Iz*am threw a birthday party for S*ra at Tr*pi**na Bowl, and the kids had fun! All ahli MTs (except for R*ha a.k.a Rasah Kemayan, who's now residing in Taman M**aw*ti) were there with hubbies and kids. We were there from 5:00pm until 8:30pm.

There were 2 coaches on hand, teaching the little ones bowling techniques, etc. (But I think yours truly needed the coaching MORE sebenarnya!). The kids were divided into 5 teams, with one parent "assisting" them. Errrr....I think I did more damage to the team, than helping them! Luckily for my Team, Hanna came just in time from her Piano theory revision class to take over my place and managed to pull the average up. But alas, no amount of strikes and spares could help my team with all the damages I had created earlier on! Sorry kids! Aunty janji tahun depan Aunty ambik lesson from Aunty Ibu (who was the highest scorer for the day! Chaya laaahh, Ibu.... Tapi, tak achi coz' Ibu dah training 2 bulan sebelum ni...Hahahah!)

From Tr*pi**na, we made our way to continue with the party at J* and Iz*am's place. Reason being, the kids tak puas main lagi, or rather - Mak Bapak nak lepas gian....The hosts had just installed a new Karaoke System at their home, and check this out - it has over 5000 songs in its list! Tak ingat dunia lah we all...Hahaha!

Pizzas ordered, kids sorted with PS2 and computers upstairs, and after MT's kecoh sessions in the Dining Room, the party was adjourned to the AV Room, and the melalak session went on until 2:30a.m!!! This went on even after Iz*am had to leave at 12:30a.m as he had to mengiring calon-calon Pilihanraya in Kedah on Sunday. Tuan Rumah sudah pergi, guests melalak lagi...Hahaha! Most of the lagu-lagu wajib for everyone were in the list, and Ayah and Ibu's Ayah had the time of their lives crooning. But, we couldn't find a Zaiton Sameon's song for Ibu to sing that night. Dang! As for me - I just can't explain it, everytime I held the mic and sang, suara tak keluar...It MUST be the mic...It MUST be the mic...Hahaha! We left J* about 2:30a.m and reached SD at 2:45a.m, and slept at about 3:00a.m.

The next morning, we had to wake the kids up rather early as Hasya and Hilman had their traditional dance class in PJ. After Hasya's lessons, D*da - her dance instructor came to me and said,

"Hasya was not focused and was dreaming away during the lesson today. And when I asked her why, she said, she slept at 3:00a.m this morning because Mommy and Ayah were having Karaoke at a friend's place until 2:30a.m?!!"

- GUILTY AS CHARGED - Kantoi...

Anyway, here are some pics. Enjoy!

Ibu,

Okay, okay...you practiced 6 bulan, NOT 2 bulan. Anyway, how come No. 2 to Shalin Zulkifli?!!! Hari tu kan ke dia kalah teruk dengan you?!

I think I have to bring the kids for bowling more often. Next round Hasya "I-Play-To-Win" Sofea v Ibu - 1 on 1, bule? Tunggu lagi 5-6 tahun lagi ke, can aaarrr?

Setuju! Linkin' Park Rawkkkk!!!

wanshana said...

Kmar,

Memang best! Jangan jeles...

What?!!! Ala-ala Akademi Fantasia?! Sori la babe - we are MUCH better than them laaa...Give us some credit la, gang...

wanshana said...

mrsnordin,

Yep! Ab*d dah pakai tudung :) and we only got to know about it on that day!

She had been keeping it a secret and wanted to surprise us during a planned girls' night out earlier this month, but due to our packed schedule, we had to cancel it. Poor Ab*d had to wait until last weekend to surprise us with her new looks and image!

wanshana said...

EtaMy,

Hehehe...Memang sekufu, and insya Allah memang sampai ke anak cucu cicit we're like this. Amin. Except the Karaoke part la kot? Instead sama-sama pergi ceramah-ceramah agama...

(Errr...not that we don't do that now, but nak memperbanyakkan lagi ibadah, insya Allah. Betul tak, Ibu?! Betul tak, Ayah?!)

And tak payah le pergi R*d B*x kat The C**ve tu lagi.....sebab, sebab, sebab....boleh melalak kat rumah J* and Iz*am le pulak...

ila de cute said...

wah betsnya ada group of freinds yang sporting mcm ni...i should create my mT jugak ler...hehhee

Ayah said...

Wah...bagus punye purli ni, Mommy oiii... Tak pe, next time I'll choose lagu2 nasyid! Tapi kalau duk tengok Mak & Pak Aji raaawk lagu Linkin' Park mana boleh tahan daaa... ;p

wanshana said...

Ila de cute,

Yes, you definitely have to have your own MT and organize outings just for the Maks and Bapaks every now and then.

Whether we're willing to admit it or not, we DO need some time off from the kids, and be kids ourselves sometimes! Tapi tak boleh buat selalu lah ya... Once a month tu kira okay la...

Take care :)

P/S :- All the best for the campaign!

wanshana said...

Ayah,

Perli?! Siapa perli?! You ada makan chilli ke?!! Hahaha!

Anyway, itu Karaoke System aaaar.... Bule order satu kaaaa? ;)

Mr Engineer said...

One thing that amazes me until today is how the husbands are able to just click in....you know, some of us were practically strangers then!...

Well, after some deep thoughts, I tribute it to the MT's wackiness that glue in all the husbands together...

We have been doing this MT thing since we were all singles..went through kenduri kahwin....visits to the maternity wards...birthday parties....next thing we know, our kids will be doing their own MTs..
ahhh....time flies...

So..err...would the new house be having the same karaoke system then??

wanshana said...

Mr. Engineer,

Waaaa....multi-purpose betul MT ni, ya? Now we're "GLUE" pulak, ya? Hmmmm...UHU? Gam Cap Gajah?!

I think, the hubbies don't have any choice really - the MT just ASSUME you all get along, and we EXPECT you all to get along! No two ways about it. No?

Karaoke System for the new house? Hmmmm...tengah buat costing la ni. Budget kureng sikit, so definitely not THAT price range. And we also have to identify which room to be made the AV Room. Silap hari bulan, Daryati jadi Harry Potter and tidur kat store-room bawah tangga, and her room jadi our Karaoke Room?! Hehehe!

Tidak mustahil?!!!

Ya...kita tunggu dan lihat nanti...
