Blame the long holiday and thus having hubby at home almost 24-7 for the reason why I didn’t update the blog. I found snuggling with the beloved was the most interesting thing to do than anything else. It was G*lden Week Holiday in J*pan starting from Wednesday, April 29th, 2009 until Wednesday, May 6th, 2009. It is actually a series of J*apanese national holidays during this period so hubby got to have 8 days off this year. After working for 2 days, it was followed by weekend previously and gladly to say although yesterday was already Monday, but hubby was off from work because the kaisya was closed. We went for pregnancy check up yesterday morning, but that is gonna have to wait in another entry.
I felt soo lonely and started to miss hubby to bits once he started working on Thursday. I fact today he is back to his usual routine again and I just can’t wait for him to come home. Nowadays I am so clingy and addicted to him. I am more emotional and easily cry if I don’t get his attention. Anyway, it has been quite warm for already 3 days since the non-stopped raining for 4 days previously. We had to turned the heater on almost all the time but now, we had restored the heaters and started using the fan since it turned out to be quite hot already. What a contrast of weather transition! On previous weekend, Saturday and Sunday; not many things took place. We just went for a walk at the K*magane Farm Park on Saturday. The park was very nice and I had a good leg exercise 😛 Before going home, we had soft creme cone each and sat at the bench enjoying the view. On Sunday, we just lazed ourselves at home. I called it hari tido sedunia since we slept so much on this day 😛 Hubby only went out for a while to buy some groceries.

On the bridge. My tummy is getting bigger (love it!) and I’m getting chubbier (hate it!) too 😛
I know that it is a bit late for this but I still want to list down the chronicle of event that had taken place during the 8 days GW holidays. I must say that our GW holiday this year had been quite eventful.
Wednesday, April 29th, 2009.
We went out after Asar and parked the car behind the old row of shops at the small town down the village. Then we had a walked towards the plant and seed shop. I had been wanting to go there since months ago and it was only materialized today. We surveyed all the vegetables plants, seeds and flower available there. After a few discussions and considering that I had already sowed a few plants at home before, we just decided to buy 3 chili plants each with different type of chili, 2 pots small type of pink roses and 2 pots of daisies each with different color, a soprano white purple and a soprano white improved. Then we straightly went home after that.
In the evening while preparing for dinner, I asked hubby to help clean up the bread maker which I used the night before. I thought of asking him right after using it but he came back a bit late since he went to spend some times with his friend. I baked some buns in double volume so the dough was kinda over-filled the bread maker container once it was proofed. So the machine was messed with some dough stick in it. Apparently after a day of course the dough was hardened and it was a bit hard to clean up. I told hubby he needed to wet the kitchen cloth first but after a few attempts hubby was already complaining. He decided to detach the bread maker component so that he could take out the container and wash it easily. To cut the story short, after an hour all I could see was screws scattering on the dining table and finally he gave up. He just said to me to straightly clean it up after using, then he left leaving the stuffs just like that. I cleaned up the bread maker then and managed to settle within only 10 minutes! Fast forward, I had dinner alone in the kitchen without inviting him, I slept in the bedroom, he was sulking with me and me too was pissed off towards him, he didn’t have dinner and he slept on the couch until morning.

After waking up, I coaxed hubby and made him breakfast and I expected him to coax me back but he didn’t. We continued being silent and sulking towards each other. He spent whole day reading comics on the pc. Whereas I kept myself busy cleaning up and vacuuming the bedroom, also re-organising the clothes and as well as all the baby stuffs in the cupboard. Now I’m satisfied with the condition in the cupboard plus it’s gonna be much easier for me to proceed with the preparation of Adik’s arrival soon. Then after having my late lunch, I continued doing gardening outside. I did some weeding and transferring the newly bought plants onto the ground and into the pots. But I haven’t settled with the daisies yet. Whereas hubby, when I was outside he was busy fixing back my bread maker and settled after about an hour. I saw that he used some glue to stick some parts huwaaa!!! 🙁
In the evening after Maghrib, I zonked out and slept in the living room and thought I would make dinner after that since I was so tired. But seeing me asleep, hubby went out and bought bentou for each of us. He woke me up to eat but then I lead him into coaxing me. Lastly he said sorry and I still nagged to him. I told him he should have listened to me and see, he already acted like an id*ot. Although I was so angry and regretted it that in a way I caused him to detach my bread maker, but I laughed him off since it was somehow funny too. How a man can be so weird sometimes, huh? I had my dinner and we were good after that. We watched funny movie together and kept ourselves cuddling under the comforter. Owh yeah… gladly my bread maker survived the unintended act of destroying it. I made some breads after that and it was as efficient as ever.

We thought of going to M*tsumoto but we woke up late. So we went out in the afternoon to buy a camera stand. Then we went to eat sushi as early dinner for me. After that we stopped at a second hand shop and finally went to C*inze Home to buy some barbecue stuffs. After reaching home, I made some simple dinner for hubby and make some muesli or cereal bar for tomorrow. I prepared everything I could before going to sleep since we were planning to leave early in tomorrow morning.

It was supposed to be a 55 minutes ride from home by car using the highway. But the traffic was congested, started from our place until our destination. There were accident and some cars broke down and the cars were extremely in bigger number than usual. Most probably because the discount that every car needs only to pay 1000 Yen to any destination during national holidays and weekends (only? not so sure) given by the government. That’s very cheap! This is one of the J*panese government effort to help ease the burden of its people during this slow economic downturn. Anyway at first we were okay but about a quarter more from reaching the destination I had started feeling so sick emotionally which of course eventually affected me physically too of being trapped in the car. It was hot and I was hungry. The car tank needed to be filled and silently I started feeling pissed off with hubby. I was scared that the car would die in the middle of the highway. I kept praying in my heart that Allah wouldn’t fate it that I was going to experience the horrible situation. I had started to imagine the worst what could happen. But Alhamdulillah hubby managed to get out of the highway and stopped at a petrol station near the exit. There were long queue and I believed all of them must have came from the same way as us. Only after that I knew that the car still can travel about 30-50 km more once the fuel light blinks. Cehhh! No wonder hubby could remain calm, but I pinched him anyway because I always prefer to play safe.
Our first destination was the B*biesRUs. I got blinded by all the cute things in the department and I started to feel that everything was important and I needed to buy everything!!! 😀 But of course I didn’t 😛 Even making a decision to choose which color and design were so hard to do since we didn’t know the gender of Adik at the first place. I tried to stick to my list and surveyed the price. And finally after numerous discussions, tawaf in the department, started to have headache, the stomach started to grumble and a few sessions of resting on the bench provided sebab dah sakit pinggang and kaki; we only bought some stuffs with only reasonable prices. But I’m gonna blog more about this in another entry 😀
Right after that we went to have lunch at S*izeriya and we ordered spaghettis and plain focaccia. Not many things that we could eat anyway. Then we straightly went to the M*tsumoto Castle. Hubby had been there many times but it was the first to me. There were many people there but we didn’t get into the castle though. We spent some times taking pictures with the view and resting a bit at the bench under the tree. Not long after that we turned back and had a walk at the row of souvenir shops. We had soft cream cone and lastly made our way home.

We just rested at home and went out after Asar to buy some groceries.
Monday, May 4th, 2009.
It was quite windy today, cold and a bit gloomy too once in a while. But we preceded with our plan to do BBQ beside the house. After Zohor, we threaded the marinated satay to the stick, cleaned up the fish, heated the instant peanut sauce and so on as the preparations to start barbecuing. There were only both of us. But it was fun nonetheless 🙂 We ate, we talked, we fed each other, we teased and took pictures. Anyway, we only had roasted corn, chicken satay accompanied with peanut sauce and slices of cucumber, barbecued fish folded in banana leaves and hot green tea to drink. After finished cooking, we ate at the patio under the sun roof where we usually hang the laundry. But we decided to continue eating in the house not long after that since the wind had started to blow strongly and it was getting colder too. We cleaned up everything and that was it 🙂
Pakcik moncet comot is trying to start the fire. Ignore the bushes and our old looking house 😛

It was raining for the whole day and it was freaking cold that we had to turn on the heater almost all the times. We just stayed at home lazing ourselves.
Wednesday, May 6th, 2009.
It was still raining non-stopped and we too continued lazing ourselves. In the evening I shaved hubby’s head and now he is bald again! I was head over heels with his new look for a few days as like finally getting to meet my boyfriend after such a long time hahaha 😀 I think he looks more handsome now but then of course he didn’t have that bulging tummy yet during our courting years. Owh I miss that guys so much 😛 By the way, today was the last day of GW holidays this year.
So… that were how my GW holidays and the previous weekend took place. As an over all, it was a very nice long holidays all together. Perhaps we are gonna have even a much better one next year, Insyaallah 🙂
