Whereas Saturday was a "lonely" day, Sunday on the other hand, was an "exhausting" day for me - but, I didn't mind because we got to spend the whole day as a family :) We brought Dar along, too - kira her off day lah yesterday. Normally on Sundays, her kerja kat rumah pun tak banyak. Besides washing the cars, she would just do a bit of ironing aje because most of the times we would eat out, or tapau our meals, and with the kids tergolek sana-sini all over the house, it would be quite difficult for her to mengemas, etc anyway on Sundays :)
The day started off with us leaving the house at 10:15a.m to go to UMSC as Ayah had to discharge one of his patients. What was supposed to be a 20-minute wait in the car while Ayah went up to his ward, turned out to be a 45-minute wait. The kids didn't complain coz' dah biasa dengan kerja-kerja menunggu Ayah ni... :)
We reached Mid Valley just before 12:00p.m. To find a parking slot was pure madness around that time, I tell you. We went round and round the P2 parking bays before Ayah decided to drop us off at the South Court entrance while he continued going around searching for the impossible parking space. We managed to get 4 items while waiting for Ayah (talk about efficient shopping, huh? Hehehe!). Ayah managed to finally park the car around 12:30p.m, and he went straight to TCRS to book a table for us to have our brunch there. It's amazing to see how people sanggup wait for an empty table to dine there. Ayah said if it was him, kalau dah nampak queue so panjang, he would just go to another joint. But, with us boycotting most of the American eating places, we were left with not much choice...
We continued with our shopping (mostly "beli tingkap" ajer :)) until about 5:30p.m. Itu pun because our feet were killing us! We didn't get the main thing that we set out to get yesterday, i.e. a small fridge for Ayah's new office, but instead we got a new vacuum-cleaner for myself (or rather, for Dar because I'm so not into doing any housework while she's around. Hehehe!) AND, check this out - a cross-trainer machine, you all! (Hmmmmm....alangkan our treadmill kat rumah dah bersawang, ni nak tambah dengan cross-trainer lah pulak...Another waste-of-money item to add to our collection, I wonder? Hehehe!)
But, semalam our semangat was really high - Ayah's, mine and Hanna's, that we would put the machine to good use. We have set our minds to start going on the treadmill more regularly to burn the calories, and on the cross-trainer to tone our bodies up, insya Allah. And another thought came to my mind - "So, what's gonna happen to our Lifetime membership at CF in One-U??!" Hmmmm...going to One-U to work-out is so not as exciting as going there to shop, kan?! Maybe we can de-register ourselves and get some refunds from them? I hope.
Ayah was so excited yesterday because he was at his lowest weight ever (since 15 years ago, that is), i.e the weight he was at before we got married, okay? And I pun tak nak kalah, and tried to be excited because I managed to reach the weight I was at after Ramadhan last year. Hehehe! This means there aren't many kilos standing between us now, okay? Only 9 kilos to be precise, okay? A year ago, the difference was 20 kilos, okay? Ahaks! Pressure...pressure... But, I'm very happy for him. And of course, I'm very happy that the reduction in the gap is not because I have gained weight, but rather because he has lost 11 kilos! Well done, Ayah :)
This should be a good enough reason for me to SERIOUSLY discipline myself to work-out, maaan... Anyway, the cross-trainer machine will only arrive this Saturday. Maybe, I should defer going on the treadmill UNTIlL the cross-trainer is here? Biar sekali harung kan? Hehehe!
Anyway, after Mid Valley, we went to TMC as Ayah had to review his patient there pulak. The kids and I waited in his clinic while he went up to the wards. And it was quite amusing to see the kids playing doctors with all the gadgets they found on Ayah's table. Ada tokoh semuanya, I could see :)
We went back to my parents' place in KD after that. My sister Yong, who has been going to some cooking classes prepared a couple of desserts which was so yummy! (Errr...somehow there's a huge dichotomy here, huh? Talking about Cross-trainers and workouts in one paragraph, and then sinful desserts in this paragraph?! Hahaha! Biarkan I terjun dengan my labu-labu, okay?)
We left KD at 8:30p.m. Ayah tapau-ed our dinner from Be*ag*s, and we spent the next 3 hours veggie-ing out in front of the TV watching AJL 23. A BIG HOORAY and well done to Faizal Tahir for getting the Best Vocal and Best Performance Awards. You truly deserved them, Superman. Too bad tak sapu bersih... But, I have no issues with Meet Uncle Hussin winning the Best Song. It IS a good song. No doubt about that :) Congratulations to MUH for bagging the RM25k and also the RM10k for the Best Pop Rock Category Award! :)
So, that was my Sunday. Kaki memang sakit, but, it was well worthed it :) Hope you all had a great day yesterday, too!
And I'm so looking forward to next Sunday. HOPEFULLY, it'll be the beginning of a meaningful relationship between me and the Cross-trainer machine. Insya Allah ;)
