The boys had done their mengaji on Friday night after which we adjourned for a supper at "That Little Gerai" and we met Tok Uncle's family... it was nice to see everyone especially Uncle Len who went for Hajj together with us. The boys left at 6:45 am the next day for the 2 hours tennis session with Ustaz, Pak Lang and a few others...while ibu and nenek went to Pasar Tani Melawati buy some rations for the house. The fridge was already showing some available space and since it's school holidays and we are expecting some visitors later next week, the food stock need to be topped up...furthermore with the CNY holidays, it's always good to keep some spares since many shops will be closed. I took some extra sleep and woke up later to do some garden trimming before everyone came home.
The weekend has been cool and cloudy until the rain started to drop later in the afternoon and it has been rainy (until writing time) with low clouds and no sun since then...just like "musim tengkujuh" in the East Coast in November and December time. We enjoyed watching the Korea Open badminton semi-finals with some hot ubi keledek rebus (bought in Cameron Highland) to come along. We later went to visit Tok Wan in Ampang after they got back from holiday in Sabah and returned home after Maghrib to watch the Malaysian Super League (MSL) opener ie the Charity Shield between the Red Warriors and the Red Giants ... the Giants was convincingly slayed by the warriors! Adik was happy although he dozed off at half time! Wanted to watch the Asia Cup final game but the eyes couldn't stay opened...but it was an excellent and sweet Japanese goal though.
It was still raining on Sunday. We had to go to Pasar Tani Greenwood to get some fish (did not get to buy fish yesterday)...and we got what we wanted. After breakfast, we headed out for a game of futsal with the cousins at Sports Planet Ampang. The boys have been waiting for this and they loved to play soccer against each other..... Pak Lang, Uncle Shady and Tok Jae were there. It was a good 1.5 hour of running, kicking and having fun on the pitch....and it was really worth it. The boys are already asking for the next session...
