Day 3 @ Golden Palm Tree : 2012 Is Here!

Hari ni 12 January......baru berkesempatan update last part of my Sepang Gold Coast trip. Jadual pack sikit minggu ni. Pagi tadi ada perhimpunan bulanan di AADK Sungai Merab , Alhamdulillah everything went well. Moga rezeki I berterusan kat sini , Amin.....Amin.....Amin.


OK.....nak habiskan post New Year ni,,,,,,dah 12 hari dah masuk tahun baru , tak roger-roger jugak post ni......

AND the clock strikes 12 midnight! From our balcony we could hear the party goers at the beach counting the countdown.




There goes the firework show from the beach , welcoming the new year :-) Hola 2012!


At the very same time,,,,,,me & Yna threw our lucky sand bottles into the sea...........letting our hopes & dreams drift to the shore with it. May those wishes come true *wink*


Well , we had our nite and MP surely had his..........errrrr,,,,,,in his own mysterious way , hehehe! New year hugs & kisses , peace.

Good bye 2011 , you left me with lots of memories. Those wonderful ones I'll cherish. You also left me with jigsaw pieces waiting for time to slowly patch them together *wink*. I'll put the unpleasant ones far back......don't want to remember them. Moving on. Moving on. Moving on. I'm looking forward. The big picture.....for my very own Rumah Cinta , Insya'Allah.

Tidurrrrrrrrrrrrrr..................


Buenos dias 2012!


In the morning......tengok siling. Kat resort ni semua bumbung dibuat dari alang-alang thatching which has been used in Indonesia for hundreds of years.



All the tans and sun burns....


Off to breakfast........ye laaa.....memang tak mandi pun......so sue us then , duhhhh!


A minor glitch happened. It was actually a personal view but MP took it personally.

The story started like this......hehehe! Baru masuk new year tapi dah jadi benda palat. MP loves chicken curry and during breakfast MP said walaupun dia suka kari ayam tapi dia tak ambil sebab dia tengok kuahnya cair. I honestly countered what he said.....don't judge a book by it's cover. It's just not proper to start a new day on a new year by being sceptical with the food that you really like. The least that you could do is to take a very small portion , taste it first and see if you like it. Kalau tak suka,,,,,,dah lah.

I explained to him kenapa I cakap macam tu.......ber-metafora laa kejap.....hehehe! To me everything yang jadi ada cerita di sebaliknya,,,,,,,samada kita nak cari tahu atau nak percaya atau terus nak terima bulat-bulat apa yang jadi kat kita,,,,,,,itu hak masing-masing. Intepretasi masing-masing.

Walaupun hanya kari ayam tapi , waktu & kejadian tu penting. Perhaps am so used to my late grandma using the Chinese fengshui in her everyday life when she was still around. In Chinese fengshui ada auspicious day lah , auspicious time lah.....I grew up seeing my grandma practiced it.......No worries , I know where my faith stands.......for me I'll use happenings or situations or coincidences or signs that happens around me as guidelines.

To me the day was important. We don't get the 'New Year' everyday. Then it was one of MP's favourite dishes. A good thing already. In the new year there was his favourite food being served but he refused to even taste it just because it's not up to his visual preference. What if it tasted good despite how it looks? I always associate food with rezeki yang Dia kasi. He had presented you with your favourite food in a way of Him telling that "Hey dude,,,,,Am gonna give you rezeki in the New Year , I know it's your favourite or it's what you've always wanted but I've prepared it My way,,,,,come take it" ,,,,,kurang lebih macam tu lah BUT we tolak bulat-bulat pemberian Dia just coz it was not being prepared the way we like it. To me macam rugi or sayang sangat lorrrr......

OK lah.....cut short,,,,,,MP is not me. He doesn't think like me. Kapish! Apasal pulak lah yang I sibuk-sibuk nak ber-metafora bagai kat dia pagi-pagi Tahun Baru tu kan. Bodoh jugak I ni.

Turns out that MP tak suka I cakap benda-benda tahyul dan mistikal dan spiritual macam tu. Dia realistic. He's the person yang akan percaya pada fakta dan apa yang dia nampak dan apa yang otak dia kata logic. Yang tersembunyi or yang unseen or yang supernatural,,,,,dia tak minat. Berbuih lah cakap satu-satu tempat tu berhantu,,,,,,selagi dia tak nampak hantu kat tempat tu,,,,,,he will not believe what we've told him biarpun ramai yang dah jadi mangsa hantu kat situ. That's MP.

Akhirnya , MP jadi bengang dengan I dan tinggalkan makanan pagi dia halfway. As you can see in the pics above. On the left was my food & on the right was MP's food yang dia tinggalkan dan balik ke bilik.

Tinggal-lah I dengan anak-anak to continue having our breakfast. I tak mahu jadi-kan incident yang baru jadi tu sebagai penghalang I. I tak nak ikut langkah MP yang ikut hati dan tinggalkan rezeki. Dia nak marah tu hal dia. I sekadar kongsi apa yang I rasa. Tak de naik suara pun masa bagitahu dia pandangan I pada dia pagi tu. Yna was my witness. After MP left she told me that she understood what I was trying to say and she can see sense in what I was telling MP. She was surprised that MP would act as such. Yna said , no harm trying the chicken curry.

Fast forward........makan breakfast.

I swallowed my pride and called MP. Wow!!!!! He banged me over the phone. I told him 1 thing yang buat dia lagi marah,,,,,,,I said , he can be angry at me but why tinggal rezeki yang Tuhan kasi......makanan tu tak salah apa-apa pun. Diam. Letak phone.

I'm human too. I pun reti marah. I took my time with the kids and later walked back to the room.

Masuk bilik,,,,,MP hasn't snapped out of it yet. Moncong je. Tak nak cakap & dah siap packing luggage dia dah......hmmmm.....hentak sana , hentak sini....and he went to take his shower. I pun start packing pelan-pelan......

Dekat setengah jam baru dia keluar dari bathroom. I gathered my guts , set my ego and anger aside,,,,,,,went to him and mintak maaf. Cium tangan dia & janji takkan cakap benda-benda kiasan-kiasan & keagamaan macam tu lagi. LOA or positive thinking is not MP's thing lah. Dia tak boleh terima the idea of by just thinking positive , good things can actually favour you. Couple of years persuading him to practice positive thinking but dia buat derk je. OK. Enough is enough. His lost , not mine.

At last , selepas I mintak maaf & menanah tahan telinga dengar amarah dia *Yes derrr,,,,,,tak habis lagi*.......finally dia OK balik.

Huh! Penat. Control emosi , lawan ego & tahan sabar ni memang memenatkan. *End it please Dear God,,,,,,turning 40 soon , next book please.....pretty please.....*

Sebelum balik , I've decided to take a walk with the kids at the garden.

Peaceful. MP tak nak ikut. Panas & dia malas. Tak minat pun dia nak jalan-jalan kat taman-taman ni.....hehehe!

It was a beautifully manicured garden. Cantik sangat. I suka.


More shots of us at the tropical beachfront garden.

Bila penat , duduk kejap.

GPT is touted to be the first eco-friendly sea resort in the world. So sights of this recycle tempayans is all over the resort.

Beach beach beach......photo photo photo....

Time to head back to the resort,,,,,,,naik buggy. Tak larat nak jalan as it was quite a distance jugak dari resort nak ke taman. Kalau malam & jalan ramai-ramai syok aaaaa......tapi kalau lepas makan then nak jalan balik ke resort,,,,,senak jugak tuh.

MP waited for us at the Sepoi Sepoi Cafe. An outdoor cafe bersebelah dengan Escapade Boutique.

Simple decor with huge chandelier hanging down from the alang-alang ceiling.

Hello! Hehehe.....

Having light snacks & drinks here.....

Me & my angel :-) *I truly love you baby*

Finally , check-out time. Bills paid. Everything settled.

Kena pulangkan key card (left) but got to keep the breakfast card with my name printed on it (right) as a souvenir......

Another shot kat sini.

Sebelum balik , shopping last kopek kat Escapade Boutique.

Bye GPT........ada rezeki , Insya'Allah nanti datang lagi :-)

Back to life , back to reality.......singgah kat pekan Sungai Pelek for a quick nasi campur lunch.

On the way ke Sepang,,,,,,,nampak banyak gerai-gerai jual durian. Hmmmmm.....nak sangat makan durian kat tepi jalan tu tapi MP tak suka :-( Dengar kata kat area ni the durian's quite cheap......nevermind-lah,,,,,,kot esok lusa rezeki durian :-)


So that was my short new year's escapade to Sepang Gold Coast. Tak best tapi best.......hahaha!



A note for me : Mission 12th January accomplished *wink*,,,,,saya happy. Sangat-sangat happy.
