My busy Sunday started with a trip to the market. There weren’t many people at the market as it was school holidays. Even some sellers were not there too. Later, we went to another market called ‘Pasar Pagi UO’ (UO Supermarket’s Morning Market). We bought 14 IKAN KELI (catfish)! I just love catfish and so does my sister. Mum used to buy 10 but it wasn’t enough.
After our Zuhr prayers we went out in beautiful clothes to two ‘Kenduri Kahwin’ (wedding receptions). The first was near the Taman Greenwood where my dearest Jiddah would wait for her bus everytime she went back to Kuala Terengganu. The food there was quite good. The second wedding reception was held at a mosque near Taman Melati. The food there was even better and I just love their lamb.
We went back home to perform our Asr prayers and went out again. This time dad drove us to visit a stamp exhibition. It was just a small one but we saw all kinds of beautiful stamps. Each of us got our chance to choose some stamps for ourselves and mum paid them. She also bought lots of lovely flower stamps as my birthday present and some cars and locomotive stamps as Ali’s birthday present. I had been collecting stamps since a few years ago; after admiring mum and dad’s stamp collections. Anyway I only have a small collection. So I am always very excited to be able to add more stamps to my collection.
At about 5pm, my parent’s good friend Uncle Khairul and his wife Aunty Shida came to our house together with Aunty Intan and Uncle Bad. After performing our Mahrib prayers, we took them to Pak Ya’s Corner for dinner.They really enjoyed their food.
After dinner, we went back to my house. Uncle Khairul, Uncle Bad, mum and dad were discussing something while Auntie Shida and Auntie Intan watched the television series ‘Merlin’ with me and my siblings. We all had a great time and they went home at about 10:30pm. It was indeed a very busy day but it was really fun.
