1 Week To Go

post ni backdated tp nk post gak sbb dh penat tulis.. boleh?  =b


So we have about a week left till Raya.. and i still haven't gotten my period yet.. i'm pretty damn sure i ain't pregnant =b it's friday and initially i thought of taking a day off.. two to be exact, today n monday.. but xjd... why?? well, i dun wanna get into it huhuhuhu so i might have to go tudung shopping tomorrow or sunday.. only one weekend left.. confirm ramai org n sesak gler huhuhu then have to really get down on the number of ppl i have to hand out angpau for this yr n the amount.. agak lambat sket la for this yr.. my dad's side tu yg pening sket.. nk kne list out the name so that no one will be left out.. bygkn la that day dh buat list n ade 61 org.. this is just kazen2 n anak buah (kazen nyer anak).. naseb baek not that much extended family members.. stakat tok chik jer n luckily cucu2 die sket n sng ingat.. mama's side la plg sng.. adam, isa ilyas.. haa kn sng 3 org jer  =b  but mama's side ade extended family... usually xlist out their names cuz depending on sape yg dtg.. just make sure ade enough to give jer.. even with the extended family pon rsnyer still lagi kurang dr family papa hehehehe

anyway, looking forward to this raya (as always)... xsabar nk mkn byk cuz sedap nyum nyumm... mama kate nk masak nasi lemak... rsnyer thn lps ckp xnk masak byk2, and tu mcm ayat standard for each yr, tp end up mesti masak byk gk hehehehe xperla, asalkn hbs mkn right... hopefully opah sehat this yr n blh amek pics with her byk2.. there was one raya when she fell down n hurt herself.. end up raya die terbaring jer sbb sakit nk bgn huhuhuh also looking forward to our kazen outing that they usually have 1st night raya tu... last yr xgi jln sgt, stakat supper jer tepi pantai tu.. the previous yr, we went to watch a movie.. about 21 of us.. gler rombongan cik kiah.. pastu after wayang, gerak gi a&w sbb lapar heheheh the yr before that plak xjoin dorg.. smp PD lmbt sket.. smp2 jer dorg tgh siap2 nk kluar, and by that time dh penat sgt so mls nk join... tp dorg gi dinner best mkn bbq n buffet bagai if xsilap.. 

i think both kampung contrast gler when it comes to raya.. now i think it's already our custom to spend the 1st day kt selayang..  since opah is considered the eldest sibling yg still ade on her side, most of her younger siblings will come visit time raya..  so mmg penuh sgt time raya.. i don't think i knew this about 5 yrs ago cuz usually blk PD tgh hari cmtu so xsempat nk tgk the relatives that come by.. but i think about 3-4 yrs ago, mama has asked to stay longer to help out..  since opah's kid xbyk cm tok, xramai sgt nk tolong2 masak.. it's just mama and us and angah n usu.. pastu if masak sket je xper gk, slalu each yr menu same byk jer.. sumer teringin this and that kn..  so before raya (last day of fasting) usually dh start busy with the preparation.. and on raya morning itself pon pg2 dh start buat keje.. i think that 3 yrs ago (the yr xjoin kazen outing kt PD tu) was like a 'culture shock' for me.. penat gler yg xterbyg la konon.. sbb ppl came non-stop so nk hidang etc mcm terlbh penat plak.. so yeah, on mama's side mmg terasa raya la.. ramai2 dtg over and we ate a lot of raya food.. but on papa's side (from what i remember) only the morning felt like raya.. wake up in the morning, makan some raya food (i don't even know who cooks them) then gi kubur kot, n sesi salam2 n collect duit raya... photo session sket, then done.. then it feels like blk kg cm biasa... bygkn ade one year tu, kitorg overnight kt selayang so 2nd day raya br blk PD.. pg2 tu semangat la pakai baju raya (zaman bli baju raya more than 1).. smp2 PD, sumer ngn baju tido la, baju biasa2 jer smbl layan drama korea huhuhuh ni raya ke ape weh?? so xkn kitorg je yg melaram baju kurung.. masuk bilik tukar baju.. hahh amek ko, pakai baju raya dlm keta jer.. so since then baju raya cukup 1 jer.. utk pics kat selayang  hehehehe that's one thing i don't like to raya kt PD... dh la crowded.. mkn pon susah (hahaha complain lbh nmpk).. they have a way there.. biar guys mkn dlu... problem is, guys makan xingat org blakang.. n malas la nk rebut2 mknan ngn dorg.. end up usually skip lunch kt PD.. some of the time mmg food xcukup pon... padahal dh berzaman masak utk ramai2, still xleyh nk budget  =b (complain lg).. then sometimes no dinner provided.. just utk fathers2 jer.. tu yg ade outing kazen2 utk cari mkn tu.. then another thing, tido.. baek chop tpt tido cepat sbb nnt xder tpt.. hehehehe ade one yr tu xde tpt, so join aishah n family tido marina... naseb baek ade tpt 'extra' huhuhuh

but even after all that 'complaining', those are the 'memories/experience' of raya on my dad's side..  mcm dramatic je cr citer tp actually x pon.. on my mum's side feels more homey and warm, on my dad's side feels more ermmm loud? hehehe well that's about it.. depending on my mood, i'll update about this year's raya maybe with some pics...
