Daulat Tuanku!!!

"....Adalah dimaklumkan bahawa pada 26 oktober 2009 telah ditetapkan sebagai Hari Kelepasan Am untuk seluruh Negeri Sembilan di atas sambutan Pertabalan Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tuanku Muhriz Ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir sebagai Yang Dipertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan Yang Ke Sebelas..."

(di copy-paste dari web portal rasmi Kerajaan Negeri Sembilan, www.ns.gov.my)

What? Another holiday for me? huhu.. holiday is heaven... both for me and jasmin. Absolutely we are going to spent time together, doing some girl things.. And yet indeed, last Sunday we were spending our night at Mak Mah's home in Melaka. Not only two of us, mummy, babah and ishreeq also joined our wiken+monday-extra-holiday to Melaka.

With Honoured, I just want to say my gratitude and congratulations to the 11th Yamtuan Besar Negeri Sembilan, Tuanku Muhriz Ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir.(sungguh hensem anakanda2 Yamtuan Besar ye...) The 'pertabalan' ceremony was held yesterday in Istana Seri Menanti Kuala Pilah (but actually it was already started on last Thursday and it was a 7 days and 7 nights of events) and today there will be a 'Santapan DiRaja' if i was not mistaken and all the folk of N9 itself will have free eating event. (makan free)

By the way, I'm telling this on my entries to remember this event (also for Jasmin's reference in future) as a once in a life time event which are rarely happen in our life and the last 'pertabalan' was held in the 60's.I was proud to be one of the Minang's descendents and I was from 'suku' 'Tanah Data'. Negeri Sembilan practice 'Adat Pepatih' and it was the only 'adat' (custom) which has been practice in Malaysia. Although the original one can be found in Sumatera, Indonesia.

Lagu Kebesaran Negeri Sembilan:
Berkatlah Yang di-Pertuan Besar di Negeri Sembilan

Kurniai Sihat Dan Makmur
Kasihi Rakyat Lanjutkan Umur
Akan Berkati Sekalian Yang Setia
Musuhnya Habis Binasa
Berkatlah Yang di-pertuan Besar Di Negeri Sembilan

This song bring my old memories when I was in Sek Men Tunku Kurshiah, Kuala Pilah. When my father was promoted as a Police Inspector in 1997/1998, he was transfer to Kuala Pilah as an OCS (Ketua Balai Polis Daerah Kuala Pilah) and the whole family had to move there. At first it was hard to leave my school friend in Kuala Lumpur which most of them I've known since my primary school (St Teresa (1), Brickfields, miss all my teachers and friends there so much!!!)

Back to my story, it was my first day in my new school and of course it makes me feels awkward among them as I was keeping in mind that they were all 'kampung girls' and I was the 'town-girl'. (Speaking with funny dialects and very difficult to understand) (Thank God it was a Girls School as i was also in girls school in my primary school) In the morning assembly, normally I was only singing Negaraku song but then I have to sing the 'Lagu Kebesaran Negeri Sembilan'.OMG! I never sing this song before so dengan tercengang-cengangnya saya telah membuat bodoh tak tahu apa yang patut dinyanyikan (itulah die budak town yang poyo tadi) Anyway, I take about a several months to memorize the lyrics and the way how to sing it. (Ada lenggok sendiri, tak boleh belasah nyanyi saje) Semuanya dah jadi kenangan....... and I also found my BFF in Kuala Pilah as she is the only person which understand me better everyday.. Intan a.k.a Noor Khairunnisa Ramli.. but the sad thing is I have to leaved Kuala Pilah and moved to Seremban after spending a year of suffering (hahaha cow-boy town) and leaves my BFF ever to meet a new so-poyo-'budak-budak'-seremban...

Well, actually there were lots of stories happen in Kuala Pilah but unfortunately I don't like to write it here because I know there will be no one interested to read it. So to Jasmin, if you want more stories, just ask Ibu, and i will tell you everynight when you want to go to sleep. (I'll make it as your bed time stories...)

Sedikit puisi dari saya (yang di copy-paste juge)

Tak Lekang dek paneh,
Tak Lapok dek Ujan,
Tak Lomak dek Santan,
Tak kuning dek kunyit.

***Lu pikir la sendiri.....

Till then...........

Wonder Weekend II

" Jasmin went Bowling"

I didn't know that Jasmin really great at bowling. Haha... can't believe on my words? It's true, she's really good with it, she even get 1 strike...!!


Still making an updates on last Saturday Deepavali holiday, me and Jasmin really having a great late afternoon in the bowling centre. Along called me in the morning and planning to take Jasmin outing for 'makan-makan'. But after 'makan-makan', ET and akak calls and telling that they are coming to join us too. So, Along decide why not we have some bowling game as it seems that we haven't did any family activities recently. The last one was on August, a day after celebrating Jasmin's 1st birthday, we went "karaoke" at Seremban Parade. And the best part is Opah also joining us bowling (....absolutely not playing the games!!)

Happy Jasmin with happy Opah

Look how champion always win....

First....Getting ready... doing sit up 1..2..3..

Second...choosing desired bowl...

Oppss.. I think I have thrown it a bit to early....

First try.....

Second try....

The result......

P/S: Hehehe... Anyway we really had a great weekend together with the families... and it's always going to be the best...

Wonder Weekend

It still a Deepavali mood in my office for this whole week and mostly staff here are all Indians and many are still on leaves. (Happy Deepavali to all Indians!!!!) My manager was on leave for two weeks to celebrate Deepavali with his family in India (Delhi if I'm not mistaken) and of course it was a "party" for myself for this two weeks ahead... (wooohhhoooo!! no drafting work for temporary!!! and I will update my entries as much as i want!!! haha!!)

As last Saturday was a Deepavali holiday so i filled my Saturday morning time with Jasmin cooking some spaghetti for her (as my mom and I was noticing her since last week she loves to eat noodles instead of her carrot+potato porridge) So I decided to cook for her some spaghetti and at the same time teaching her on how to use fork and spoon (but without a table manners because it is still a looooonngg way to go...)However please don't misjudge me on this (konon poyo nak ajar anak makan pakai sudu dan garpu), well what I'm trying to say here is I'm teaching her using some other skills instead of only using fingers she also requires to learn on how to eat using basic eating utensils (fork and spoon).

What I can conclude here that she knows the techniques but she still need some practice and understand how it works. Practice makes perfect (fave quotes) Go! Go! Jasmin!!

Jasmin dearly, Ibu really have a wonderful weekend filled with great moment with u my girl!!

Let picture's do the talking:

First step: Spoon on left hand-side and fork on my right hand-side

Second step: Put the spaghetti inside my mouth

Third step: Slluuurrrppp.....Taaadaaaa.... Now the spaghetti already went off inside my tummy.. and I even have a "spag-goaty" just like abah.. *wink*wink*

My "Hari Raya" Stories

I am so worried that if I don’t get a time to update any of my entries especially on my family ‘raya’ story. Well, as for my concern today is already forth week of Syawal (only a few days left)but still the atmosphere of Aidilfitri are very pleasant and hilarious (but absolutely not for me coz I’ve started work on 4th 5th Hari Raya when everyone still in the mood of ketupat, nasi himpit, lemang, rendang etc)

I’m leaving my previous job at the end of August ’09 and started my new job at Ircon International Limited Seremban early on September ’09 (it is in the middle of Puasa and nearly Hari Raya and of coz its requires me not to take long leaves as it will affect my self "credibility" of an employment of my "hindustan-hei" company..cheeewaahh!!)
Family Photo on First Hari Raya at Kg Penajis Tanjung, Rembau, Negeri Sembilan
This year it was my husband’s turn and I was in Rembau from Raya Eve one day before Raya Eve until second day of Hari Raya. This is my second time of Hari Raya with my in-laws (Frankly speaking, I still feel awkward within the families but at least I’ve tried to get use to all of it and hope there’s no heart feelings amongst my in-laws coz the reason is Jasmin won’t let me go to help the masak-masak thing’ing’… Blame it on Jasmin…) So, I’ve just help my mom-in-law hanging the new langsir and some others housework+baby sitting (syahdu rasanya… especially on Raya Eve without mummy, babah and all my siblings but at least I still feel lucky because they are still exist here to celebrate Raya with me... sympathy to the orphans...)
Nothing much to jot down here on how I spending my Hari Raya celebrations this year and the normal agenda of Hari Raya is visiting all the relatives, collecting ang-pow’s and makan-makan. This year is the second year of Hari Raya with Jasmin and I do feel great and full of excitement. As last year, Jasmin was only 3+4 months old so the celebration is bit liveliness and we just stay at home enjoying T.V. programs. This year Jasmin is able to walk fully without any helps from anyone and that was the best present, great moment of all. However, she just got an “L” license so she was walking non-stop and sometimes without brakes (pictures).

Anyway, these Hari Raya is still special for me and hubby especially when Jasmin really showing her ability and the important thing is she enjoys her Hari Raya with her Abah & Ibu... We both love you Jasmin.. and now I'm waiting for her conversation skills as she now was mumbling and bubling (baby talks) a lot...
