Yesterday, November 10th, 2009, was our 6th Relationship Anniversary. We declared through YM on the very exact date 6 years ago in 2003. Wow 6 years! And perhaps more to go, InsyaAllah! 😀 I remembered about the day but at the very moment towards the exact day itself I kinda forgot about it. Earlier during the wee hours of the day, I just finished breastfeeding and burping Ihsan while hubby just done with his Subuh prayer. I went out of the room towards the toilet and as I walked by I had a glimpse of him checking on his backpack. I thought he was just keeping his wallet and zipping the bag. But anyway, I briefly told him to help change Ihsan diaper. When I went back to the bedroom, I saw hubby was lying beside Ihsan. We changed back to our place and just when I looked back to correct my sitting, I saw a bar of chocolate on top of my pillow. Definitely I was surprised! Hubby instantly wished me Happy Anniversary and shyly covering his face with blanket when I tried to touch him. I laughed and said to him that no wonder I saw him checking on his backpack just now. Actually I kinda felt weird too why must he looked at his backpack at that time. Apparently he hid the chocolate in there. I thank him and wished him too. To cut the story short, we went back to sleep. Hubby said he planned to buy Ferrero Rocher but there wasn’t any so he bought the Meiji Macadamia Nut Chocolate. It was just a cheap chocolate but the gesture and thought that were count! The chocolate was yummy and he was sweet! 🙂 I ate all and left only one piece for him to taste 😛 Anyway since the days before, hubby planned to take me and Ihsan too of course out for dinner at a restaurant. However, that had to be postponed. Why?
Because yesterday I was having a toothache! It wasn’t actually toothache. Starting from a few days before, my gum was swollen and yesterday the pain was getting worse and my gum already producing pus. Not forget to mention my mouth tasted funny and smelly too 😛 I already had this problem since the wisdom teeth on my upper right jaw grew about 4 years ago. The tooth kept grinding the gum at the very end on of the jaw below. I went to the dentist first when the tooth started to appear but the dentist I saw in Sabah said that he also didn’t know what the problem was and only gave me painkiller. Stupid doctor! 😛 The second time was during last year when I was 6 months pregnant with ‘Abid. Only at that time I knew what the real problem was. The dentist suggested for the tooth to be pulled out since it became a nuisance although actually the tooth itself was healthy. But I chickened out and didn’t even attend the follow-up appointment 😛 After dealing with the on off pain, yesterday I decided to get it settle with. Although at first I kinda reluctant, but hubby made an appointment anyway with the same clinic we went last year. I got some advices from a few friends including one a dentist herself. Only then I had the courage and confidence to get the wisdom tooth extracted. After work, hubby brought me there. The dentist extracted my tooth and lasered the swollen gum. We were the last patient to leave the clinic. Fortunately Ihsan was being such a darling. He slept once we reached the clinic and until we reached home. So now, my mouth feel so free from trouble. Although the gum still feel a bit pain and swollen. There’s also blood still coming out from the gum above. Perhaps I won’t have any toothache anymore after this. By the way both side of the lower jaw haven’t grown any wisdom tooth yet but there are not much space left for the teeth to grow. And the left side of the upper jaw, the tooth grown a bit slanted. That sure gonna be worse problem if the lower jaw wisdom teeth start to appear. I wished they won’t!
On another different story, last weekend was a better one compared to the previous. We went out for ringo gari on Saturday. Matsukawa is full with dozens of apple farms. The apples are supplied all around Japan and even imported to overseas. We didn’t know which farm to go to but at last decided to just chose the one we visited last year. I like this farm because the fruit stall is big. An obasan attended to us to the farm. Upon leaving us she told me to keep hugging Ihsan what more after knowing Ihsan was only 2 months and a half young 😛 Half of the farm was closed this time unlike last year. Might be some of the apples were reserved for selling. The open side of the farm got many apples too still. But half of the trees there were already run out of apple. Anyway, we had a great time there. We were the only customers at the farm so it was like the farm was ours 😛 The atmosphere was so peaceful, cool, surrounded with apple trees and especially being with loved ones. So, it felt really nice obviously 🙂 Hubby was the one picking and peeling the apples while I took care of Ihsan. As for Ihsan at first he was awake but then he started to cry for milk. After breastfeeding him and a few rounds of taking pictures he fell asleep. Not long after that we decided to go home. Hubby picked some more apples and we headed out. The obasans at the fruit stall were all fascinated with Ihsan. Each one of them eagerly came to us to take a look at Ihsan. They said Ihsan eyes are big and he is kawai. Well, all babies are cute aren’t they? 😛 Funnily there was one obasan when she took a look at Ihsan, she slowly pointed her finger to Ihsan ‘s face. I kept watching her finger. She seemed wanted to touch Ihsan but she scared. But she touched Ihsan’s cheek anyway. Well… all of us just laughed 😀 Although actually I felt a bit hesitated for a stranger to touch my baby. Right before we left, they kept reminding us to keep Ihsan free from flu and fever. Hait! 😀

It is really getting colder these days. Every night before sleep Ihsan will be bungkus by me macam lepat. That’s sure to keep him warm and has a good sleep until the morning.
Step 1: Wear the sleeping bag
Step 2: Bungkus macam popia with the swaddling blanket
Step 3: Cover with another blanket
Step 4: Cover with futon shared with Mama and Papa
Sejuk ooo sekarang ni! But hopefully Ihsan stays healthy always, Amin 🙂
