We are back home finally, Alhamdulillah :-D. The plane landed at 11.45 mlm tadi and we ‘celebrated’ the arrival of 2010 at the airport baggage carousel waiting for our luggage, which was so much fun, hehehe ;-). But by 12.45 pagi, we were already at home, thanks to abundance of taxis at the airports. Most probably, the taxis would rather wait at the airport to ferry passengers returning home from overseas than to ferry drunken yobs at Northbridge and Fremantle home kot. Kalau I jadi taxi driver pun, I would rather wait at the airport for my fares than wait in the city.
I was so happy bila sampai rumah sebab bila bukak aje pintu depan, I could see that the house was really really clean and spotless. Obviously our house sitter did a spring cleaning just before he left which was really good of him. But now, the house is messy again thanks to The Other Half and The Little Misses!!! Hmmm….. Pastu, this Monday we are having our 3 monthly house inspection pulak tu so weekend ni memang lah tak boleh nak rehat sangat sebab kena kemas rumah again which is such a tedious chore to do especially when you are dead tired from lack of sleep. Oh well, what to do, dah duduk menumpang kan, so kenalah buat cara orang menumpang, hehehe….
But sebelum tidur malam tadi, we all sempat keluar tengok ‘kebun mini’ we all yang dah dekat sebulan kena tinggal tu. Our flowery garden kat depan rumah dah mati kering semuanya which is so so sad (including our lone lavender plant 😦). But The Other Half obviously did a good job setting up a timed watering system before we left for M’sia for our mini kebun sebab all our plants are doing really well. He was so impressed with his handiwork, hehehehe. Let me show you how our mini kebun looked like this morning…
This is the general view. Tengok lah betapa ijo nya pokok2 tanaman ni semua. Memang sungguh menyamankan mata memandang :-D. Tau tak pokok apa yang menjalar kat atas simen tu?
Ini lah dia hasil tanaman yang menjalar tu. Ada 2 biji watermelon yang tengah membesar. Sebelum we all pergi bercuti hari tu, cuma baru putik aje yang keluar and now nearly 4 weeks later, dah besar lah jugak our melons ni. But rasanya masih belum boleh dimakan lagi kot. I kena google to find out how long we have to wait before we can pick it. Tak sabar nak tunggu nak makan our own home grown watermelons :-D.
Sungguh cantik dan gumuk betul I rasa pokok kunyit and pokok daun kesum I ni but bila lah agaknya we all nak guna ye? Sebab, dah gerenti we all tak makan nasi for 1 week ni, hehehehe…
Ini pulak salah satu dari 3 pokok chili we all. And again, entah bila lah I nak guna chilli ni. I suka sangat2 tanam pokok chillies but jarang guna chilli, hehehehe. Nampak gayanya I akan buat jeruk aje lah sebab jeruk can keep for a very long time :-).
And seperti yang telah di jangkakan, our dinner tonite was pizza!!!! The Other Half said to me on the plane last nite, “do you know what we would like for dinner for our first night at home?” I dengan muka selamba macam ahli nujum yang sangat pandai pun berkata, “pizza right?” He just burst out laughing and said, “you obviously know us so well :-D.” Lerr, bukan susah pun nak teka kan, hahahahaha….
Setelah 3 minggu tanpa gambar food, let me present to you our dinner…
BBQ chicken pizza. I korek our magic freezer and found a 1/4 BBQ chicken in it and carik2 isi dia and voila, jadi lah chicken pizza ni. After we had our first bite, everyone collectively said, “Ohhhh, yummmmmmm!!!!!!!!” I buat 2 largeish sized pizza and tadi cuma tinggal 5 keping aje. The Little Misses had 3 pieces each! And Daddy The Little Misses pulaknya sikit nya kontrol makan ke tadi. I could see it in his face betapa lah susahnya dia kena kuatkan semangat tak nak membedal habis2an tadi, hehehehe. Kiranya macam orang melayu dah 3 minggu tak jumpa nasi lah, wakakakakakaka……..
