I picked up my flight tickets from The Office yesterday. This year we will be using Malaysia Airlines instead of Air Asia for our annual trip back to Kuching. I purposely made arrangements to go back a week after the actual Eid dates so that;
- I could serve the community by being oncall on a festive season. Furthermore, the nurses and medical assistants always bring marvelous Raya food and dishes to work. HA HA HA.
- I could take longer leave and enjoy myself in Kuching – hopefully free from distractions at the workplace. But I know I’d still be curious to find out the gossips at the workplace and such. Kuching raya sebulan OK..
So since we’re going back to Kuching for Raya this year – that means I’m not inviting any people to my house for berjarah. HA HA HA. (making excuses rite.. I keep telling myself that I will light up my house compound with tuntung every year but something always gets in the way.. hihihi). Instead, I will bring over cookies and nasi impit on an interval basis to work. aci kan..
I have laid out my suitcase – it will be another 3 weeks or so to the flight but hey, I need to plan our outfits early. On top of making an appointment with Stella for late night coffee or cake. She’s a busy woman. Then of course thinking of what gifts to bring to the relatives. The duit raya. The list of things to buy from Kuching – kuih lapis, pua kumbu, kaftans and such. Drafting the itinerary on which house to visit and on what day. The food we must not miss eating like Laksa Sarawak, Mi KOlok, MI sapi, Eskrem Gula Apong and what not.
What interesting weeks ahead.. yeay!!!
