Them At Lake District

Just received this from Umi.


They've been in Manchester since midnite Tuesday (8am Wednesday in M'sia).


Today, they rented a car and drove up to Lake District.


Umi sms-ed saying that Lake District hasn't changed a thing since the last I drove her and Udi down from Edinburgh, EXACTLY a decade ago... July '98.


I reminded her to get those fries dipped in yummy home-made garlic mayo at the restaurant by the lake where the geese are.


And Umi terus mms-ed me this photo --
"Abg Ahy feeding d angsa".


That was where I was and what I did a decade ago. And today the entire of my family sans me are there... prolly feeding the same ol' geese at the same ol' spot.


I couldn't help but wishing I was there with them now at Lake District .....


I hope they managed to drive through the town nama Ayah -- Rosley -- this time with the tuan punya badan posing under the signboard, heh2.


Umi kata lepas ni they'll drive straight to Kak Fairuz&Shidin's place for dinner. Sian Kak Fairuz, mesti kelam kabut kena masak! But from how Kak Fairuz relates of her life in Manchester, Shidin pandai memasak orangnya. So, I think Shiddin would help her out a lot by the time Kak Fairuz gets home from work. Ye ke Kak Fairuz??? Hehehe. Hey tenchew for layan-layan my family, hor....


By the way, Kak Fairuz is 18 days YOUNGER than I am. So, why then I call her 'Kak'??


Panjang ceritanya, cu...and aku SORANG je plak tu antara kalangan kawan-kawan yang panggil dia 'Kak'.


Anyway, I heard that my bros got me a handbag from London, and Celi got me "The Kite Runner".


Eiii can't wait!!

Yes, lake district had not changed a stone/a pebble/ an inch...etc... Bootifull...

Dinner last night- your family looked really tired, infact like I said- I felt bad dragging them out. In terms of our prep- nothing to it. Masak simple (nasi putih+ soup ayam)... lasagne was cancelled to cater for your Dad and you cant go wrong with nasi right! Most prep took place the night before (sambal + desert). Shiddin came home early and masak soup + nasi on the night. Simple hassle free maaahh....

But it was good to see your mum again. We all cerita balik cerita lama2 and had a good laugh. Your mum knows soooo much about you! I'm impressed. Shahadah was very excited as we don't receive guests that often. Cheli and your cousin layan dia.

ahhhh... I miss home...

alah donch feel guilty of dragging them, lah... bila lagi diorang nak sampai rumah u kat Manchester, kan??? I should be the one patut rasa guilty -- dah la tu hari kerja you! Kesian you and Shidin! Thanks for having them around, ya???

My mom knows about me a lot? Alah, mom's instinct, kan. Also, I just got to know that she also reads this blog once in a while... and since that IluShidin's House night, my dad, too! *criiiiinge* haha
