Another Boring Raya

another raya...another day of trying. since i didnt do anything for syawal, i decided to cook this raya. opted to make nasi minyak & chicken curry, no need to think of the menu and its easy. as usual, i planned to start cooking while the boys are asleep. hubby said he'd make the acar while i cook. but he slept...so i cooked alone. didnt take me very long. i started around 9:45pm and slightly after 11pm, i finished cooking, cleaned the kitchen, washed the dishes, took a shower and was all ready for bed.

i woke up at the usual weekend time. bathed the boys, dressed them in their baju melayu, made the bread pudding, did the laundry and found a green kebaya to match amir. then hubby came down after 9. he didnt dress in his baju melayu (he said since we werent going visiting) and he decided not to go for prayers. sigh...he said he was going out to see his friends for lunch. i was thanking god. malas lah see him without a baju melayu while everyone else was dressed. uh...do we actually need the excuse of going out to get dressed...apa-apa lah....
















breakfast raya morning was nasi minyak, chicken curry, acar timun & nenas, bread pudding & brownies. i loved the food. no, its not great and no, i'm not a good cook but cooking food that i like plus cooking how i eat equals food that is yummy.


















after breakfast hubby slept. i took pictures with amir and played with ariff. asyraf, as usual, was asleep. hubby woke up for 5 minutes and left for bangsar to meet his friends. so the boys and i sat in their room watching monsters inc.
















maybe this raya is not a big deal for hubby. again, apa-apa lah. we've agreed to disagree on how we celebrate raya so no point in bringing up. hey, the boys and i had fun together so that's a plus point for me.

Raya nie kalau dah tua2(tua ke?), memang nothing much to look forward too, unlike the kids. Anyway, the boys are growing up and cherish the moment ya!

we had our differences how to celebrate aidiladha. we were like pointing at each other who's turn to start first. it should be my turn balik raya witd my parents, hubby main tipu!!! mmg x leh caya kat dia, he said if this time we balik raya, next time he wants to balik raya jugak.
in the end i mengalah, ok fine lets start with my turn... next year klu dia buat merengek nak balik kg dia jugak... mmg i akan cakap "silakan..."
