Another good reason to have kids….. slave labour!
Why did I say that? Well, hari ni we spent the whole morning in our tiny garden, trimming and pruning and fertilising. And bila you trimmed and pruned 2 lemongrass plants, memang banyaklah leaves yang nak kena sapu. And since I had to do the trimming and Daddy was busy fertilising, The Little Misses lah yang kena kerah sapu the leaves and putting them in the bin. But they loved helping in the garden so ceria aje lah muka bila kena ‘kerah’, hehehe….
And then, we washed our car! If I tell you that the last time we had our car washed was in November last year, you all percaya tak? But it’s the truth! Both of us love our car but we are not the types yang every week kena cuci kereta. Bukan setakat every week, once a month pun tak terbuat, hahahaha. Masa baru2 beli dulu, 2 minggu sekali we all mesti cuci sendiri and siap polish inside out lagi tu. But biasalah kan, lama kelamaan makinlah malas nya, hehehe. Nak bawak pergi car wash pun malas you! The only thing we’ve been doing is cleaning the windscreens every time I put petrol in the tank, other than that, memang lah tak basuh langsung. Teruk betul kan! But for the past few days, I’ve been complaining to The Other Half yang I dah malu sgt2 nak drive the car nowadays sebab sikit nya kotor ke and also setiap kali bergesel dengan the car, mesti kotor baju I (actually tak lah seteruk ni, but better exaggerate a bit kan, hehehe). So tadi, we all pun bergotong royong beramai2 cuci kereta. The Little Misses macam biasa lah, kerja tak banyak mana but basah kuyup! And now, I will be happy to drive the car again sebab dah cantik bersih, hehehehe…..
Ini pulak our feijoa plant, finally berbuah and dah boleh makan pun. Feijoa ni native to South America but the Kiwis have made it theirs :-). So, The Other Half happy sangat2 yang pokok kesayangan dia yang mengingatkan dia ke his childhood is finally giving out nice fruits :-). Rasa dia and bau dia memang iras2 jambu lah, that’s why it’s also called pineapple guava. But the taste is a bit masam and you can only it the inside so kira banyak wastage lah buah ni! The Other Half said that you can make feijoa jam from the skin…. Sape lah agaknya yang nak membuat jam tu ye? Definitely not me! Hehehehe…..
