My weekend at Vimala's House

Saturday morning at about 8:45am Vimala called "Hey wake up, are you coming?" I answered the phone hastily and said "ya ya I am". I better not miss it this time as I felt I should keep in touch with this childhood friend of mine and understand more of her life now.

Slept late a day before due to family issue. I woke up and pack, inform my mom of what I am going to do and where I am going. then I head off to Gombak. My mom didnt want to go JB, so I decided to carry on with my plan and I didnt plan to call also anyone in JB also, would not know what is the right thing to say so I rather not.

Really not sure how is the weekend going to be like, quite some time never spend so much time with Vim. Vim hubby not around, went for treasure hunt, a company affair and she is waiting for me together with her son, Neghan who by now know how to call me "Kai Ma" means Godmom and according to his mom, he is very hyperactive. Yes I suddenly have a God Son. It started cos I just want to teach him some chinese word, but since he starting to call me seriously from then onwards I think its ok and felt I should give him some positive good advice here and then, ofcourse those learning from other mothers hahahaha. I am very careful not to give wrong advice to kids, if not sure I better keep quiet. Buddhism teaching better keep quiet, than say the wrong thing.

When I finally reach, they were having breakfast and I joined along. My friend made Roti Canai with very nice red "sambal curry" that have beancurd, brinjal, tomato in it. Her Roti Canai is not like the restaurant one la, similar to the one you bought in supermarket though, which I think good enough but the sambal curry is fantastic.

Then we talk about what we going to do, we didnt really have any fixed plan and she doesnt seem keen to go for Genting, which I am glad too cos I am not keen to go Genting and spend a lot of money also. She suggested foot reflexology in Bukit Bintang Walk street and hanging out at Starbuck nearby BB Walk cos she got FREE RM50 voucher which she can use without paying a single cent. I was like WOW..! great man.. this is unexpectedly better than just going to Genting and lose money.

First we sent her son to Piano lesson, then we went to clinic so I can get cured for my sore throat, coughing badly and husky voice. We then sat down at a chinese coffee shop and had a bit of dim sum so I can take the medication immediately. Then we went to pick up her son and go back to her house.

And so I waited for Vim to dressed up and then drop her son at Vim's parent house. Then both of us went out, we tried the foot reflexology and decided to go for the one hour package since the lady offer us free neck and shoulder massage if we take that package. It was very comfortable until almost then end I felt pain of and on but I never make much noise, according to that massage lady I dont take food on time and maybe due to I dont sleep early. I was thinking to myself that time, hard to achieve this in the modern world nowadays where work, stress, pressure, multi tasking is a norm. I just need to find a place for stress release lo, like gym, massage, visit beauty saloon to constantly staying on track with my look makes me feel better. I also think I should try to take food on time, I remember a business partner I met, wow she even set alarm on her mobile to remind her to take lunch, its a daily routine for her.

After Vim and I left the massage parlour we drop by at a boutique shop along the BB Walk street and shop. We bought earings and I bought a very colourful necklace. I thought maybe I just be bold about colors now and not just black and white all the time. Oh man... enough about being so professional I think I need a colourful life back, I need a change. So we were happy with the things we bought and the price was really cheap. I didnt spend much but I get a lot, you know how that feel right :D

We then went to Starbuck Coffee shop and we ordered Noir Chocolate Classic Cake, Blueberry Cheese Cake looks really cool, Sausage Mayo Bun, Signature Hot Chocalate, Tuna Mayo Toast Sandwich. Pictures in my mobile but cant get it out yet :( the food was great and its FREE yeah we feel great. When we were happily eating the food, I told my friend "You know what? you kept your promise after 22 years of friendship, you finally come out and hang out with me, OMG dreams come true ahhaha"

She finally get to do girls hang out, she is a friend that I can only hang out at her house only, she always care & respect what her parent think and then when she married she is concern what her parent in law think and how her husband would think, which I think turn out pretty good thing for her, that explain why she have a good marriage and a nice home and now that she sorted out her youth life she can now finally do something for herself, now she enjoy life much better as she is earning her own money and just spend happily with the right conscience. No one would dare to say anything wrong about her, as she fulfilled her duty as a daughter, a wife and a super mom. I guess by now, I dont think its a bad thing after all, Vim did pretty well for herself and I did pretty well for myself lol although she is the only one married with kid la lol...

Anyway after that we decided its getting late and we head back to pick up her son. Then together we went to Giant, and then Wasbudi at Gombak to get groceries for cooking Yee Mee. She wanted to learn to cook Cantonese Fried Yee Mee from me and I wanted to learn make Tose and Curry Dhall from her. Later at her home I show her how I cooked the Cantonese Fried Yee Mee and then she thaught me how to prepare the Tose ingredient as I gotta leave the Tose overnight after I blend the whole ingredients. I am quite happy she like my Cantonese Fried Yee Mee hehehe. She said she will make for her hubby, I hope to receive good response though lol.

The next morning, we woke up and make Tose for breakfast and we cooked the curry dhall together in which I learn a lot of things. Then we drop her son back to her parent house and we went to Sentul Pasar. I was quite glad to see some of the old folks doing food business in the market is still there. I met a lot of old acquantaince and I say hi to them, they were shock to see me cos they only remember I was a fat little girl back then, everyone say I so slim and tall now. Heheheheh actually they dont know I put on weight again. I update them about Kupoh that she is doing well after her leg operation and everyone is fine.

I also saw my second auntie there who try to give me her homemade kaya for free, but I insisted to pay her. I dont feel comfortable taking things for free, plus she doesnt earn much selling those items. I just thought I should just say hi as a respect to my relatives. Anyway my auntie seems busy at that time as there was a young girl fainted and there were a lot of people surrounded her and already giving lots of help, so I went off with Vim. After we finish doing all the marketing at the wet market, we shared a plate of Fried Kuey Teow Mee from that very old stall which I just want to remember the feeling of eating at that market in the morning again. Aaahhh, now its not smelly cos the chicken area is not out there anymore. I would want to go back one morning and eat the old folks stall there again. I hope I can get someone to go with me la.

Then I drop by again at my second auntie stall, bought stuff from her and bid her goodbye. My friend and I went to another shop outside the market area where I bought claypot, ingredients for tose and beautiful puttu design that will go well with my punjabi clothes or future saree. I just like to explore traditional clothes, I find it more interesting and colourful. Now I only have one Punjabi and one Kebaya. Cheong Sum not yet la, not slim enough sigh...

Then we head back to Gombak again, she cooked and all. I was playing bubble with her son, then I guess everyone is tired out as we all dozed off at the living room. Then I woke up, have dinner, show her some pictures from my laptop, then suddenly electricity black out, then after some time electricity came back and so I packed up and bid them goodbye.

I am very proud of this girl friend, she is a very responsible mother and a very discipline person herself. She is the only person I know got a biological clock that can make herself wake up at 6am in the morning, cook breakfast and make lunch pack for her family and son before going to work. Come back from work do housework, take care of her son and plan her things to do the next day. Wah sound so tiring right, but she can do it and she enjoy that her son eat her own cooking.

Come to think of it, I am quite blessed with good influence friends, most of my friends are doing very well for themselves, mostly have good positions in MNC companies.

Head back home, suddenly saw my car darn dirty mann. Aiyoh after raining days my new car look so darn dirty and full of dust. So I had to wash my car and my wonderful nephews Benson came and help me. So after washing my car, we wash his Kancil also. Yeah we felt good after washing our cars.
