Saturday outing || Bon voyage! Hafizah & Dr Zul

Last Saturday, we were invited to Bandar Tun Hussein Onn for a "doa selamat" gathering. Our friend Hafizah is flying off to Sidney to pursue her PhD with her hubby Dr Zul in tow. 

We stopped of at Aida's house in Cheras first, and my 3 kids got to meet 3 UKM wondergirls properly for the first time. As usual, they were painfully shy at first. Not a squeak out of them all the way to Bandar Tun Hussein Onn. Even when we got there, they were very much sticking to my tail-skirts like glue. 

We were late, and missed the actual "doa selamat" but were in time to eat. There was a delicious spread of sate, meehoon soto, kuey teow, bubur kacang, cucur udang and so much more. The kids, as usual, ate like birds. They had more fun washing their hands repeatedly in the washbasins. 

On the ride back, it was totally different. Having warmed up to my friends, the car was rocking to the sounds of "Burung kakak tua, 3 ekor monyet, Rasa Sayang" and many more of their favourite songs. We stopped of again at Aida's house for toilet break, and they almost wanted to stay. More due to the awesome cabinet of toys in Aida's living room than anything else. 

As we drove away, waving frantically at their new "Aunties". Hamzah was quietly saying his goodbyes. "Bye Bye. Bye Bye ... teacher". I guess he was confused who they were. Hehe. When we discussed who each Aunty was (Cik Cha, Cik Na, Cik Jil), Aishah asked me "Ummi, how do you know their names?". Sigh. :)
