My Dad’s Birthday Surprise

30 10 2008

Last Friday was the last day of tests this year. It was SRK Damansara Utama’s PKSR IV and it was also my dad’s birthday. So, my mum decided to go to Johor Bahru, since it was his birthday and he was there because of a conference.

I’ll tell you the whole story about the weekend then :

At Friday, around 1220pm, my mum picked my up. She said ‘Let’s go to Johor and see Papa’. I was shocked – and surprised – by the idea. It was meant to surprise him, but I was surprised first by the idea. After a couple of hours packing and stuff, my aunty drove my mum and me to KL Sentral.

My mum bought some Economy Class stand-by tickets. Then, we bought the tickets to go to KLIA. Once the train stopped at KLIA, we got the next flight and went to gate A11. We boarded the flight at 1715hrs.

After less than an hour later, the journey stopped. It was quite a long walk to the bus station. But we managed to get the bus.

Apparently my mum thought the bus would stop nearer to the Puteri Pan Pacific, but to her surprise, it stopped further then she expected. The walk there was quite a while and tiring. But as soon as we walked into the lobby, the normal happy feeling came back.

I called my dad to say that we were already in the Johor Puteri Pan Pacific’s lobby and we sat down while we waited. When he came down and saw us, his face lit up immediately. My mum described the look as “a look she had not seen for a very long time“.

That evening, after my mum and I had showered and change into fresh clothes, my dad’s friends, Aunty Jazreen, Uncle Kenneth, Uncle Azlan and my parents and I had dinner together. We had fish, cuttlefish, sweet and sour prawns and fried kangkung with white rice – well , i had fried rice with egg.

Later, after some pictures and lots of talking, my parents and I went to Singapore. My dad wanted to stay there for the weekend. That was the end of the day.

Yeah, my writing’s become different right ? HAHA, but that day was different then others. I know its late but on behalf of that day, HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA !

Yay ! Raya !

Hey people !

I apologize for not posting as I promised, apparently I’ve been busy with all the extra class my ‘sekolah agama’ had organized .

Anyway ,

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri !

Raya always somehow remind me of the end-of-year holidays . Probably this might be the saddest yet , cause I’ll be leaving SKDU , where I’ve been suffering 6 years of homework . That also means that some of my friends have gone to international school .

This holiday also means that im finally going to be a TEEN ! No longer a pre-teen . Goodbye pre-teen world , Hel-lo TeenLand !

That also means that I’ll be goingย  to get ready for more homework ! What whatever . I’ll just tell the teacher “Yeah , Sure , Whatever . I’m too awesome for it ” . I know , I’ve changed and I’ve become more sarcastic and *’perasan-ning’ . It’s practically what we , Std 6’s do actually …….. Even if we go to school , we’ll just ‘lepak’ around the class and go with our “Hey , we’re almost teens . Lay off it !” attitude .

That’s what we do ! ๐Ÿ˜€

So , lastly , I’d like to say to those awesome dudes who’ve moved : “I’ll miss ya !”

Today, we went to the Queen Victoria Market to get more things as we – mainly me – don’t have enough to keep for ourselves and our friends.

We bought some boomerang fridge magnets, more koala clips, some more boomerangs, two purses – shaped like a koala and a kangaroo head – and a kangaroo pencil box with a few tea towels.

Later, my mum and I went to a doughnut van and bought two for $1.80. There was strawberry jam inside them.

[I just figured that doughnut is the English spelling and the American spelling is donut]

After that, we went to the city. We went to somewhere near Swanston Street. My dad parked in the parking lot and we went up to Elizabeth Street.

Soon, we were in the Royal Arcade. It was a very nice building with marble floors. First, we stopped at a place called Babushkaa. It was a shop that sold Russian dolls. There were many varieties of them.

Later, we went to a shop called Westminster. It sold very delicate things that were beautiful but very expensive. Some of their goods’ prices went down a LOT! Amongst the things we bought were two musical carousels. One for me and one for my aunt as her birthday is coming up. It was only $19.90 – which was, very, very, VERY cheap!. We also bought 4 nice brooches with ribbons on it. It was only $2 each, which came down from $29.95 – how shocking, I know.

After that, we went to buy new shoes for me. I wanted some boots. Because I live in Malaysia, I could only buy the ankle-high ones. I bought some black ones for $34.90.

They were very nice. I had fun with them. It went nicely with my black jeans. I was very happy!

Unfortunately, I have to go back home tonight. Our flight is at 0015hrs, Melbourne time. Its sad but, hey, at least I got new boots! ๐Ÿ˜‰
