Al-Fatihah : Dr Lo' Lo'

Ramadhan comes and I'm taking this opportunity to do tahlil for individuals that's dear to me through out the Holy month of Ramadhan , that includes family & friends and Yes....persons that I've never met.


My prayer goes out to Almarhumah YB Dr Lo'Lo'......since the landslide tragedy that hit Bukit Antarabangsa on December 6th 2008......arwah Dr Lo'Lo' became my friend. She offered help to fly my newborn premature baby out of Bukit Antarabangsa. She kindly arranged for a helicopter transfer for baby Adriel who was 5 months +. So what if she was in the opposition party......I simply do not care. To me , she was one lovely soul. She helped me and for that I shall remember all the good deeds that she had done to me & my baby & my mom. She also medically treated my mom at the relief center.

Ever since the tragedy Dr Lo'Lo' constantly sent me text messages asking about my baby & my mom. She also at times forwarded me beautiful short tazkirah & precious Islamic quotes. And I still keep the last text message she sent me in my mobile.......

had a wonderful lunch with Bapak Iblis & family from Bangkok........hehehe!

Not only via text messages......we were connected on FB too.......


You shall be missed but never forgotten doc,,,,,thank you for your help.....I love you. Another doctor in my life is gone.........

I miss Dr Haliza........

I Love Temerloh : Day 2 - Tahlil & Bertunang & Nikah

3 weeks before coming to Temerloh , staff Dr A called asking me to come to the clinic to collect a wedding invitation card from Dr A's sister & mom. OK , went and collect it only to discover that the wedding is going to be held on the very weekend masa I kat Temerloh. Hmmmm.........siapa laa yang pandai-pandai plan-kan ni......hehehe! *TQ TQ TQ*


On day 2 in Temerloh , I had a long and tiring day with my group. We went to Lanchang - Kuala Gandah to see some elephants & went playing gasing Pahang at Kampung Sanggang. The kids was too tired to follow me to a majlis tahlil kat rumah mak Dr A.


Malam ni ada 3 events kat rumah ni. Tahlil for arwah ayah Dr A , majlis bertunang & majlis akad nikah. So I was at the house since before Maghrib lagi....


Lepas tahlil , family members masing-masing sibuk buat last minute preparations for majlis bertunang & akad nikah. Some layan football.....


I tak tolong apa pun sebab......semuanya dah siap.....cuma tinggal nak touch-up here and there. Ni je yang I tolong....tolong angkat pahar air minum berhias ni dari dapur & letak-kan kat tepi tempat duduk pengantin lelaki. Mulanya tak de buat pun pahar air ni but last minute Mami Dr A buat jugak.


Finally , pihak pengantin lelaki sampai......atur-atur hantaran.....


Sebelum mula.......gather-kan everyone and the 2 saksi utomo......


I usha dari belakang je.....bukannya family members pun nak sibuk-sibuk duduk kat depan tu.


Event dah selesai baru selesa nak bergambar......in red tudung is Mami Dr A. Next pic is a relative of Dr A.


Ni sisters Dr A.....


Blue bilik pengantin with the bride....


Around 10pm-ish....almost all guests dah balik leaving family members behind , baru lah I makan. Lauk best sangat. Sambal tempoyak with petai & all sorts of daun-daun....then ada daging goreng kunyit & the best was this umbut kepala dish! Delish!


Family members of Dr A baru makan and gather after the Nikah ceremony.


Almost 11 baru Dr A sampai , just in time to join us all for a late makan malam. Earlier dia dah balik Kerdau with his kids tapi kena patah balik ke KL sebab ada delivery.....That's Dr A with his auntie , Mok Teh. First time dengar Dr A cakap loghat Pahang........hmmmm......I tak berapa nak faham sangat conversation Dr A dengan auntie dia walaupun duduk betul-betul depan I. So pekat laaa....nanti lah koi belajo ye.......hehehe!


At home , my kids had their own fair share of kenduri jugak. Lengkap dengan baju kurung & baju melayu , they had Nasi Minyak for dinner , tuan rumah sediakan. Kebetulan siang tadi home owner kata kat kampung Sanggang ni ada 3 kenduri kahwin....so malam , merasa laa makan lauk kenduri.


Cross over to rumah mak Dr A......Mak Teh eventually got tired and had to call it a nite. Then......just us , me - Kak Imah & hubby & Dr A.......we were cracking riddles , ridiculous riddles and silly jokes and we were laughing out loud at each single insane riddles till past midnite! First time I saw the very funny side of my doctor and him LOL and am very much sure that it was the first time Dr A saw me , his patient LOL too....hahaha!


Now I can sleep....hahaha!


Another long day tomorrow in Temerloh plus.....Owh! I have a kenduri kahwin to attend esok laa... *wink*.

I Love Temerloh : Day 1

Hope that I can cover 3 days of my Temerloh posts kat CC hari.......picture tale laa ye....too many photos to share.......most of it kat FB......while writing , am also uploading pics to my 2 other FB accounts.....hah.....berpinor mata tengok same pics over and over again....but it's OK coz am seeing blueeeeeeeeeeee.....*wink* *you'll know why later-later....hehehe!*


I'm here in Temerloh with my vocal students since last Friday , July 22nd. Mulanya 15 orang nak join tapi dah akhir-akhir......only 6 of us came. I dah booking and made arrangements since May lagi.....not knowing that there'll be more agenda 'installed' for me........happy ones of course. Dari May lagi I dah tetap date & etc.....Am glad that everything went on smoothly and the trip was a memorable one.

We stayed at Kampungstay Desa Murni in Kampung Sanggang. Mulanya ingat nak duduk kat Homestay Desa Murni in Kerdau but I was told that kat Kampungstay will be much more comfortable for me an my group as we will be staying together in a house. Great. Anyway , Kampung Sanggang & Kerdau is just 2-3 minutes away.



This is the Kampungstay.....Cantek. 4 houses in operation , 1 modern bungalow & 3 kampung houses. All newly build.


Kat keliling rumah ada pangkin , alat tuai padi ni and a dewan in construction.....


Upon arrival........angkat beg sendiri. No bell boy , bell boy aaaa......


Kasi ketuk kuat sikit.....no bells! just burung belatuk kayu OK....



Spacious ruang tamu......


....with cute chairs around the living room........



The guys depan bilik diaorang.......


Ni master bedroom , my room. Very spacious.


LCD TV in the room lagi.....


Clean and pretty bathroom.


All rooms ada aircond & kipas. What more to ask......I'll come to this kampung at any time derrr!


All bathrooms ada hot shower....wohoohoo.....ada hot & cold drinking water supply lagi....


A complete kitchen......siap ada washing machine , detergent pun disiapkan.....melampau tau....hahaha!


Ruang makan.......you can cook and eat comfortably. Tapi me & group paid all in for this trip , from breakfast - lunch - tea & dinner.


Will be my home for the next 3 days :-)


Teacher Saleh , cikgu drum Yna pun join trip ni. Lepak kejap sebelum aktiviti petang mula....


Petang ni my group kena lead a group of school kids from London to cook either nasi goreng or mee goreng or both! Hehehe! Fun fun fun....


Tengah bahagi-bahagi , siapa masuk team siapa.....


Team I semua lelaki. Team Teacher Saleh semua girls.....


Shanna with her mix gender team. Octe & Khalil with their all girl team.


Gather to get the ingredients needed.....not a competition but just to show the kids how to cook our local food.


Best part......I taught the boys my short cut way of making NasGor....hehehe! Even ada reps from Tourism Malaysia that day was clueless of what was I doing , hehehe! Biasa laa......method dumb cooking I , mana semua setuju nak ikut.....but....dowh! Janji cepat & janji ingredients semua masak. Firstly , I asked the boys to splash some oyster sauce & sweet soy sauce onto a bowl of rice and mix them well with their bare hands....hehehe! Lupa pulak I yang nasi tu panas....hehehe! Merah-merah jari diaorang mnenahan panas...hahaha! I then told them to go and wash their hands and I'll finish the task for them....


......with a spoon of course....Sorry boys....


Pihak organizer sediakan cili paste , mixture of garlic-shallots-anchovies , fish balls , fish cakes , sawi , salt , cooking oil. Next thing to do , I tumis-kan cili paste & garlic mixture. Fry till fragrant and added the fish balls & fish cakes & sawi.....after a minute , in goes the rice mixture......done! I told the boys that there will be no salt needed as the soy sauce & oyster sauce dah masin. They were happy to tell the gang that they didn't use any salt in their food. The boys timed the cooking process and it took us only 8 minutes to finish.



Then the boys requested to try cooking the fried rice by themselves using the method that I've just taught them....Ya....why not kan? They did it in 6 minutes! Awesome! They wanna keep on cooking another batch of fried rice by themselves.....they did it very well. Proud!


We were done way before the other teams....hehehe!


Chefs resting...hehehe!


Then it was time for an early dinner.


Menu was the fried rice & fried noodles that we cooked with some chicken barbeque & fish crackers. Simple & filling.



Later at nite........we enjoyed ourselves to an impromptu dance performance from the kids. A simple step dance.


My group sang a number too....


Organizers invited a group of local trditional dancers from Temerloh to come and perform that nite. We ended the nite with couple rounds of Poco-Poco and yaaa.....we also did the step dance lead by the anak-anak Mat Salleh! A very entertaining nite for us all to share......short and sweet.


A group photo......a must isn't it?


We headed to our 'house' to take a shower & watch TV. LCD TV with Astro Beyond yo'all! Kat hall pun ada aircond! Kalau tak nak aircond , boleh bukak kipas. Free WiFi pun ada siol. Nak complaint apa pun I tahu pasal tempat ni. At night it was peace & quiet around the house.


Dah pergi outstation mana laaa mata nak tidur awal kan.......we then make a trip to bandar Temerloh which was 15 minutes away from Kerdau. Tapi malam-malam ni banyak kedai makan yang dah tutup. Mission-nya nak beli some drinks & snacks kat 7 Eleven........we then ended up tapau-ing some fried chicken from ChicKing. Fast-food joint like KFC , baru 2 hari bukak kat Temerloh ni.

Bonnet kereta penuh minuman & makanan.......kalau ada road block alah balik ke Kerdau ni and kalau polis suruh bukak bonnet belakang.....semerbak laa bau fried chicken....& also barang-barang lain yang polis akan jumpa will be loads of snacks & bottled drinks....hehehe!

Sampai rumah , hujan ribut! Tapi nasib baik kat sini guna Astro Beyond.....so siaran tak lah tergendala.....We all layan thriller 'My Bloody Valentine' malam-malam buta ni sambil makan ayam goreng ChicKing with the girls screaming every now and then! Nasib laa I dah tengok cerita ni , tak lah berapa nak takut sangat...hehehe!

Malam ni tak berapa boleh tidur......tempat baru. Tapi no worries , tiada kejadian-kejadian mistik or what so ever.....the place is safe.
