Of Umi Ayah Melepak

Yesterday. Umi, Ayah and I reached Pt.Dalam at around 4.30pm after the berubat appointment in Kuang at 2.30pm. After what was supposed to be a brief minum-minum petang and short evening nap, Umi Ayah ended up having dinner of nasi kukus ayam goreng berempah with us and continued lepak-lepak till quarter past 10pm.


In normal circumstances, jangan harap Ayah nak melepak till past maghrib. "Air mandi angsa tak tukar, pokok tak siram, makanan kucing-kucing mendatang and burung-burung tak kasi..." Ayah would say.


So kiranya aku bertuah semalam that Ayah agreed to stay back. Aku seronok tengok Umi rilek-rilek macam ni, and Ayah main-main dengan Adi. Seronok sangat. Aku yang tengah demam pun, terus rasa sihat sikit.


I asked them to stay for the night. "Nanti Kak Lin buatkan breakfast," I said. But alas they had to go home 'coz noone's around to set the house alarm.


Esok I will be the emcee for the whole-day GBI conference, with 5 speakers presenting their paper from morning till evening. I hope I will be better tonight. Skrip pun tak wat lagi. Yet my temp is escalating, bila batuk rasa nak pensan.


Helep.

Hi dear,

Good luck with the Emcee-ing, and hope your throat and cough will be much better tomorrow.

I think memang orang tua-tua ni, bila sampai certain age memang payah nak tido kat rumah orang lain, even if at their kids' home.

With my Abah, it's always - "Kesian...nanti burung tak makan..." He feeds all the birds that come to the house 3 times a day, with leftover rice and bread.

And when he had to stay with my sister last month because it was less taxing for him to go for his daily radiotherapy at GH, he would remind my other sister to feed the birds... :) Siap telefon 3 kali sehari to ingatkan... :)
