Welcome back to Reality

Happy New Year everyone!

I flew to Kuching with hubby on the 28th Dec and stayed there til 2nd Jan. The main reason for going back was to attend hubby’s brother’s kenduri kahwin on 30th Dec. The akad nikah already took place on 30th Nov. Hubby didn’t get to see his family during Hari Raya because he started his new job and didn’t have any leave. Pictures of the wedding are posted on my FB.

New year in Kuching was quiet. Maybe because I didn’t really spend New Year in Kuching. We went to this place called Sematan. It’s like PD and we rented the chalet there for one night. So on the eve of new year, hubby, FIL together with my BILs had bbq-ed some lamb, chicken, prawns and cuttlefish by the beach. There were no fireworks, only total darkness and the sound of the waves. It was good for a change I guess spending new year away from KL. I missed my family but hubby’s family made me feel so welcome and loved. We ate so much! My MIL cooked Laksa Sarawak (I made the mistake of calling it Laksa Sarawak while I was there and hubby laughed at me and said that I don’t have to call it “Laksa Sarawak” when I’m in Sarawak), stuffed chicken with potatoes, Bubur pedas (didn’t really like it but hubby said the bubur pedas that we had was not the same as the bubur pedas his grandma used to cook) and other local dishes that I cant remember the names. On the night we arrived in Kuching, hubby asked his brother to buy Mee Kolok for us. It was truly delicious. How come we don’t have Mee Kolok here in KL?

Sematan was nice. Too bad it rained throughout our stay there. Nak mandi laut pun tak leh coz the waves was quite strong.




We also had the most delicious seafood in Kuching. The butter prawns were awesome!!




My good friend, L, who has been married for almost 8 years told me that she might be pregnant. They have been ever since they got married and were desperate for a child. She went “berurut” with this elderly woman who calls herself Mak Som in Kuantan a few months back and told me that this Mak Som is really good and all the women who went to her had gotten pregnant. L told me there are a few conditions that she has to follow e.g. after berurut for 3 days in a row, L and her hubby must have sex everyday for 14 days and tak boleh miss even 1 day (errmm…for some men this is quite daunting, am I right?) and after that must refrain from having sex for 4 months!!! I think this is even more difficult that having sex 14 days in a row, no? How do you NOT have sex with your husband for 4 months??!! Can tahan ah? Hehehe…But for L she said she would do anything to be pregnant so she followed Mak Som’s conditions religiously and yesterday she texted me and told me there’s a faint line on the pregnancy kit.
She was so excited and was supposed to go see a doctor next week to confirm. For her sake I hope she is pregnant. She told me Mak Som is coming to KL next week and if I want to berurut with her then L will take me to see Mak Som. There’s no harm in trying right? I told hubby and hubby said there’s no harm in trying but 4 months without sex??!! Hehehe..Sabar jer lah…I don’t wanna get my hopes up..I told L to redha and if it doesn’t happen then she must be patient. Pandai jer cakap kat orang camtu kan? But bila kena batang hidung sendiri tak tahu nak console diri sendiri. Sigh…
Oh yeah, I got my year-end bonus and was quite happy with it. I got an Ipod Classic 80GB as a present to myself. Wanted to get the 160GB initially but then hubby said what was I gonna do with 160GB anyways. He's right i suppose. My 1st wedding anniversary is also coming up. I told hubby there's no way I'm getting him a PS2 or PSP or an XBox. If I do get pregnant THEN maybe he'd get one. If that's not motivation enough for him then I dont know what is. Hehehe...

Me kolok, sedap? Well, that's nice. Most friends tell me they don't understand what the hype is about mee kolok. And I told them it most probably is the nostalgic factor gripping every sarawakian. But even in sarawak it's not easy to find a good joint. And don't even get me started on the so called imports we have here in kl.

Food aside, Happy New Year dear, you and reza. I hope he strives hard for the PS2 or PSP. Work it!

Glad you had fun in Kuching! It must be nice to be showered by all the attention and food. We get that too when we're home. Also, my hubby tends to eat more when he comes back since he misses home-cooked meals and local food. :)

Some of them are an aquired taste for me, I'm afraid. But I'm willing to try....well, most of the times. Hehe.

Mee Kolok? There used to be one at the now defunct food court in Bangsar (near to the mosque). Supposedly good.

akula said...

toughcookie said...

Omg... the pictures of food tu very the bahaya... kang tak pasai2 craving those prawns kang kesiaaann my the one hehe.

On the pantang after berurut tu, mak aaii... 4 months is so long. Urmmm... Bukan kalo 4 months tak dapat nafkah batin tu dah kira tak boleh ke? But I guess anyone would try anything la kan to see if it really does work.

Well, good luck, gurl. No wait... I think the good luck is more for your hubby ;)

zewt said...

Frankensteina said...

Kuching reminds me of the yummy mee kolok :) The last time I went to Kuching was probably 5 years ago. Gosh I must go back to eat! :)

Yes there's no harm in trying though 14 days straight of sexcapade? Wow ;)

Anyway I'm a little late but Happy New Year to you *hugs*

Cosmic_GurL said...

Hahaha..yeah hubby needs ALL the luck he can get!

zewt - yeah thts the pantang larang..pening kepala thinking abt it

sweettooth - U mean a sane man can't go without sex with his wife for 14 days??!! Abis tu men yang single mingle tu camner plak?
Hehehe..

DB - Awww..thanks dear..InsyaAllah!

Frankensteina - 5 years ago??!! Lama giler tu! U definitely have to go again la..AirAsia tickets now cheap..RM59.99 to and fro the last time i checked :)
Happy New Year to you too! :))

zewt said...

well.... i think having sex for 4 months in a row has got more chance of striking it... besides... fun too!

heyya, juz stumbled upon ur blog & was reading bout d baby thing. sounds cool, but kesian la to d guy.

dat aside, was wondering if u n hubby (or L & hubby) pnah pegi to a fertility clinic to check nape x dpt pregnant lg. sometimes failure can point to a reason; not trying to scare u, but i've seen loads of patients in d hospital where i work at who come in nk try to get pregnant, & bila scan rupanya they got fibroid/polycystic ovarian syndrome or tests reveal their husband got no sperm. again, not to scare u, but a trip to d doc's office can bring lotsa answers.

good luck to both of u.
