Run Raisya Run

Assalamualaikum :)

And, hello.

     Today we had lunch at my uncle's house. His recent hunt got us some real good meat yay so it's a family feast. A little tradition in the family that we always treasure omg getting sentimental here can I not go back to Shah Alam tsk. It was really nice having lunch together but the kids were, quite a headache to tend to. They were like, ten little kids to tend to. Luckily they are all well-mannered and not as fussy. After lunch, I took some of the kids for a walk nearby the housing area, wasn't that far lah. I made sure that we stayed within the vicinity where it was still possible for us to run back to the house in case aliens suddenly decided to land and kidnap us. You'll never know. 

     The little one, Raisya was in a really good mood today. Too good of a mood. She was laughing and behaving so politely. She ran a lot too, in a kurung lagi smh my heart would skip a beat because when kids run, it always gives you the never ending fear because their little feet looked like they can;t match the gravity and they always looked like they are almost stumbling while as a matter of fact they are doing just fine. Penguin runs. But still, minor heart attacks. I don't want them to stumble and hurt themselves naah. But the girls, they are not used to walking. They ran. So after a moment, when they realized that I was not keeping up they'd be like, "Kak Aaaaiin, cepaaat." Kids, your Kak Ain couldn't speed up in skirts. What if some prince charming happen to use the road no I must keep calm and maintain my gadis ayu speed ok.

     And Raisya really liked it when I picked her up and made that that trick as if I'm giving her up to the sky (very momentarily, that girl is growing super fast) whenever she dashed towards me with her arms open wide. So she would run ahead and when she turned her head and saw me lagging behind, she would run towards me so that I can raise her. I better be burning some good calories there.   

     There was like a really long walk by the paddy field. Since Baby wanted to show me where her brothers went to catch the fish yesterday, we took quite a stroll down the road. And after that we went further along. I told them that we will only walk until the end of the road, and then we should head home. 

     So when the girls are happy enough getting patted gently by the evening breeze and sight-seeing, I said, "Ok jom balik." And that's when Raisya lost it. She refused. Tugging my sleeves adamantly, she pulled me ahead and said she didn't want to go home. She wanted us to march ahead and she did not want to turn back and walked the way we came just now. I explained to her, if we are to walk ahead, it would be a really long walk home. We had to like, go around the village which is reeeeaaallly far and that can take up to one hour. Then Baby added that, "Yeah it's far Raisya. And we have neither money nor water with us so it's gonna be a really long walk home." But obviously, the qtpie did not understand a word we're saying. 

     I tried to coax her into going home, telling her that we will not go home, just walking on the other side of the road (which obviously did not work she knew the road like the back of her hand I bet) The funny part was, even though she was almost crying, whenever a bike/bicycle passed us, she would suddenly be alert and pull my sleeve to stay at the side of the road adamantly until the rides are gone. Idk I found it funny heheh. Dia macam, marah marah merajuk, oh wait ada bike gotta be careful Kak Ain let's stay on this safe side of the road kejap. And after that, she's back throwing tantrums again.

     After half an hour going back and forth, I had no choice.  She was still so very adamant. So... I ran. I went, Ok Nia and Baby jom lariii. Yeah we ran towards home, because I know she will chase me. And she did. In, tears . . . I really had no choice. I would stop sometimes midway to check for the fear if there were incoming vehicles and afraid that she would turn around in retaliation but she's picking up alright. When we were halfway home, my sisters found us and Wawa took her in her arms. Still crying, she insisted to go the other way but we got her home yeay finally.

I knew the too-good-to-be-true-mood got an impending dun dun dun coming *nods slowly

Beach Fashion Trip - The Three Must-Haves

     If someone suggested a beach trip, I would always have Hilary Duff's A Day In The Sun playing in my head. A friend of mine is leaving for England this Friday while another one is heading to the a Bali Trip for some fun in the sun while here I am . . . Enjoying the sun filtered warmth from the comfort of my couch.

     Speaking of beach trip, if you are heading to anywhere with white sandy beach vacation spots, don't forget the three must-haves for the beach!

First thing first would be; I'M DA reALEsT nah just kidding. 

Sunglasses, ladies! 

     This is definitely the must have that if halfway to the airport you happen to not bring one, you must, by any means, either exploit the time dimension and dash back home to grab it! or buy one on the way yeah that could work too. Not only sunglasses could help you transform your face to suddenly being a celebrity lookalike but more importantly it protects your eyes from the harsh UV rays which could jeopardize the well being of your sight. Not only that, sunglasses could be the protective layer to cover your face so you will not be weighed down by the needs of having to put make up too much while at the same time still looking as good and tourist-ish summore. 

Could this be the sunglasses whose lens will set your eyes on your real love? AhahsdbsdabdsJK

     I think the second must-have as you go on a  beach trip is a nice pair of flip flops or gladiator sandal. Honey, you can put away yor high heels, boots and loafers for a while and splurge on a trendy colourful qtpie flip-flops or a stylish gladiator sandals. Not only they are comfortable for long-distance walking (an event which you will be participating a lot during holiday) but they can also add on another ten points to your tourist-ish look. 

Could this be the flip-flops that will manoeuvre your way to your real love? Dun dun dunJK

     Last but not least, don't forget to pack a few pieces of maxi dresses! They are the perfect easy going clothing for you to wear anywhere without ever looking out of style. You might also want to consider the colour and pattern of your dresses to be in accordance with the mood of the places you visit. Contrary to popular belief, maxi dresses can also be super comfortable and convenient for your travelling journey. 

If the dress could be the one you will be wearing as destined had it you are to meet your real love . . .
