Ok, I know that kids nowadays do have mobile phone as early as 5 years old (mainly in KL) for their own safety. They can call their parents, and vice versa. But my niece live in Taiping, particularly schooling at Sek. Ren. Simpang, so why she needs one?
And today, I got one sms that said,
“Tgh buat apa? Ni thirah. Keje ke?”
Thirah mana plak ni? Yeah, I got a niece called Thirah, and hubby got a cousin sister called Thirah as well. But hell no this hubby’s cousin sister has any thought of sms-ing me! So, it must be my 10 years old niece…but…I didn’t expect her to use short form, plus, using KL slang!
I assumed it was my niece and I replied,
“Thirah? Dapat henpon ke? Kat mana ni?”
I purposely spell it right instead of using short form. Waiting for another sms to come in.
“Dpt hp abah. Thirah kt umah.”
Whoa! She was using short form! I replied,
“So acu simpan no. ni la k. Wah dah ada henpon dah,senang la. Kena pandai guna perkataan pendek2. Baru save.”
I still can’t help myself to completely spell it.
“Ye lh. Bye!!”
Haha…so cute! Then we stop sms-ing.
“Tengah buat pa? Kat sini boring lah.”
She started sms-ing me again! In just less than an hour. Excited with her new hp maybe. And now her sms sounded like typical utara kid…haha!
“Kt umah tgk tv cite mami jarum. Ajak la mak dtg umah acu. Sok thirah besar leh dtg sendri.”
Coincidently it was Mami Jarum on Ria! So typical utara people
And she replied,
“Mak kata nanti.”
Yeah I thought so…and now I miss my nieces and nephews…4, I have seen yesterday, another 4, I shall meet this coming raya…owh duit raya…
Come to think of it, why she can't have one...she's a prefect, scored above 90% in all subjects...maybe my sis had promised her 'something'...
If it was not for the reason that my oldest sister and her family wanted to visit MAHA 2008, I won’t be there, even if I want too.
My sis and I constantly hooked on phone when she started to hit Jalan Duta. They reached my house at 12 midnight and ever since, I can’t help myself to shut my eyes off! (Hubby was already in his wonderland).
Early in the morning, hubby was ready for work, while me, accompanied my sis and her hubby with their 4 daughters to MAHA 2008. We had breakfast at Ekuin Park and reached at MAHA as early as 9am. Believe me we were among the early birds (MAHA 2008 starts at 10am).
Oh, no! The sky was gloomy and it started to…rain heavily! Luckily we brought 4 umbrellas to at least, cover our heads (yeah, we were wet from waist to bottom). It was heavy rain and we just reached the livestock site (the place where they exhibited different type of cows and goats! Owh, you just couldn’t stand these animals odor!). And you can’t imagine how to control 4 girls under the rain at a gigantic-open-space-event, with one of the girl having diarrhea and thrown up! Any sites that we visited MUST have ladies, to ease her to do that ‘thing’. Looking at my sis on how she handled this tedious situation, I can say that she such a superb mom!
The poor girl, at this point, too whitish, and we need to stop. Btw, MAHA 2008 did provide a good hop-in-hop-off, for there were plenty of trams and busses at each stop. We stopped at food bazaar for lunch and we had appetizing bee-hoon sup and char kuey teow. Yummy!
We continued our visit at deco-veges-land and there were loads of huge fruits hanging on top of our head. Some were lined up from top to bottom in small plastic pot, looking green and healthy. Capsicum, ladyfinger, eggplant, cauliflower, okra, lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, chilly, oh god, you name it! I felt like taking all of these fresh veges home!
Then we off to fisheries site but nothing fancied us. It was all the same catfishes combating over the running water.
I started to make dull face when I heard my sis wanted to stay till evening. They wanted to stay for Redeo Malaysia. It was getting hot now and to kill the time, we headed to main halls that exhibited different products from different line of agro. Thank god it fully equipped with air-conditioned! I bought nothing than Ramli beef nuggets for hubby. But when I off to the next hall, I was stunned in front of thousand of colorful orchids! Thinking of how to bring all these striking orchids back with good condition, I had to pass. (My sis and I even soothed ourselves when we saw one makcik broke her violet orchid on the tram…tak sampai rumah mesti dah mati pokok tu…).
Ok, it was the time for Redeo Malaysia! We were happily on foot, waited for tram…and purposely waited for open-air-tractor-typed of tram (takut my niece throw up lagi). It seemed like ages to reach the Rodeo site, as we can’t wait to watch Malaysian cowboys! We were late for 10 minutes and didn’t manage to get closer view of the arena. We had to balance ourselves to stand on the flag pole side and 'shooh' the flag away from our view. Hehe!
What? There were Aussies! (Ok, nevertheless, I did expect that, but I was hoping there were truly Malaysian doing this horseback riding or bullback riding when they put Rodeo MALAYSIA in word!). These Aussies even flagged Malaysian flag during opening, not Malaysian.
Fine, yeeeeha! Fully equipped with cowboy hats and boots (with spurs), jeans, bandanna and chaps, carrying lariat, they were truly jackaroos and stockmen. They knew how to ride horse, doing roundups, and even wrestle with bull. Above all, one of the jackaroo did injure his left hand when the bull snagged him to the gateway while he still tied to the rope. Advantageously, they had these 2 clowns who their job was to distract the bull away from the rider. Anyway, no serious injuries as seen on tv. Besides, there was also a competition of tackling cattle as well as trick roping (it produced pop sound whenever they smacked it on the ground, or even in the air).
Enough with Rodeo, we queued for tram to go to the main exit, where at the end of the day, we found out that it was just a walk away from Rodeo site! Dang! A one-round-leisure-time-on-tram day for all of us.
And so we reached Ekuin Park at 6.30pm and I had no intention to cook for dinner in my 9-hours-sweaty-cloth. So we bought dinner and had it back at home. There goes my day with my sis and her family! Enjoy all pictures at sekupang album (sorry for the image quality, they were taken using my cameraphone...forgot to bring hubby's canon!)

Do you know that you have to get a flu shot EVERY YEAR? (I never bother to get any vaccination...)
IBM has paid SJMC to jab all its employees, on yearly basis. Since this vaccine costs you RM100++ outside there, why not you get it for free?
I’m not a needle person (but i like to sew, hik!). I’m afraid of getting injected on any of my body parts. Hehe.
Now enjoy my video!

Let me tell you guys...
I've been watching these sequels since Death Note, Death Note: The Last Name, and the latest, Death Note: L Change The World. I amazed with this live-action manga since it introduced the secret and function of the book (can you imagine how powerful you can be when someone's life is in your hand? Just by writing that person’s name?) Plus, how tremendous to have such high-quality-eye-catching 3D Shinigami, Ryuk and Rem, both male and female god of deaths, in their own styles and characters.
I like L very much! Ken'ichi
Death Note, and Death Note: The Last Name, really impressed me with unbroken scenes of Light and L mind-battling each other. But with Death Note: L Change The World, I was bored to death! Yes, I have an issue when Death Note started to plot on saving the world when a team of extreme ecologists are trying to unleash a deadly influenza-ebola virus across the earth! What the f**k was writing the Death Note related to virus spreading? Where was Ryuk? Was there a need to burn the books? Ok, I see how sequels need to be ended…
Nonetheless, L did spare few scenes and save my day…especially when he tried to walk straight…hahahaha!
