Postcards from my hometown.

I feel very glad that i ve made today's trip to my hometown.Ramadhan is just around the corner,me,my brother,sil and niece made a day trip to our hometown to tidy up the house,change a few things and arrange for cleaning.It was a hush hush affair as uwan and the two girls didn't know about my trip,the trios thought i went off to office.I felt bad leaving them as they would enjoy it very much especially uwan but the time was limited and with them around we can't settle the things in time.So off we go in the morning..menyusur jalan kenangan sambil membuat kerja and mengisi perut..more to the later actually:) It was a very happy trip to us 4 adults,it was fulled with laughter,stories and nostalgias.We stopped at Dengkil R&R for nasi lemak with goreng peria.. and we had lunch at Kuala Pilah,me and ikin had our long awaited mee hailam,while my brother and sil had nasi puteh with ikan sembilang salai at his favourite shop.We went to tempah new langsir for rumah uwan,bought few other things for "Aminah Resort"..we look forward to our raya in kampung:) Can't wait to fix the new langsir,tikar getah,table cloth etc. Actually people would wonder what so special about going back to a small,hottest temperature town like KP..well nothing much they didn't even have supermarket like Giant or tesco..being in the town was like stepping back in time..that is the best part..if many,many years ago i stand at the toy shop pulling my mother;s sleeves to buy me marbles now i stand there to buy toy for my girls..the shop is thousand miles below Toy r us standard but it means so much..it is fulled with nostalgias and memories and i love my life and kenangan2 manisnya.


Always love this mee hailam,simple yet so delicious..everything just right about it; i can finish the whole plate.


Homemade chili jeruk adds ummphhh to the mee hailam.


The hungry mammal;)


Ikin sharing my memories at this toy shop..inilah kedai yang sejak kecik dulu i selalu bertandang,my doll,marbles,animal farms were all from here..everytime we passed by this shop my emak will buy something for me and without fail i always beli my milky van houten kenit2 chocolate here,i dont know whether anybody remember,the small square chocolate wrapped with red,white,brown and orange paper..i loved it very much.


Many types of bubble gums which can be found in small shop like this only.


And we bought gula anau for ramadhan.


I love going to this little shop which have all knicks knacks under the sun..my excitement going here is just like going to Eurochef in Seri hartamas..today i bought tuang kueh siput,gold strainer for wantan noodles,moulds for biskut semperit and even rake for my garden but i couldn't find rabbit loyang for my agar2;(


The pakcik with durian kampung..it may not be Mousan King but we bought it,more to helping the pakcik actually he's been sitting so long and nobody bought his durians due to competitor with much better selections.


And as promised i got the girls the golfset..it was RM20 each after tawar menawar..it is quite cool,it has club,putter,flag,balls,hole etc..


Then we stopped at this famous cendol..dah berabad this family runs this business...see there,layanan mesra lagi..too mesra lah penat dengar dia puji kita orang macam heroin hindustan..alamak..our shah rukh khan not around laaa:)


cendol yang menyegarkan tekak yang dahaga..cendol with jagung and kacang:)


We reached KL at 6.45pm and i cooked dinner..i feel so glad and thankful to my brother for driving us back and the other two ladies..i had a wonderful time..a short breakaway..the feeling was awesome..rejuvenates my spirit and mind. Bahan mentah for dinner mostly from KP,gulai telur itik with bacang,goreng taugeh kasar with kicap,santan durian mentah,goreng ikan sepat masin,sambal tempoyak and petai..perut kenyang..tak banyak lagi yang di idam..kecuali bantal yang empok dan pelukan anak2 dan suami...zzzzzzzzzzz:)

sampai sekarang i pun suka sgt pergi kedai yg kecik2 mcm tu.. mmg mengimbau nostalgia.. dulu2 balik mengaji selalu singgah kat kedai tu.. beli jajan.. mainan masa kecik pun emak selalu beli kat situ.. kebetulan masa kecik dulu depan rumah kita orang ada a row of shophouses kayu.. so mmg seronok sgt "window shopping" kat situ..
