Sob! Sob!

Camera aku rosak!


Bersusah payah aku carik warranty card camera tu. Nasib baik jumpa. Bulan depan warranty expires. Nasib baik.

Tapi takde original receipt pulak. Dah bagi kedai tu masa claim free photos dulu agaknya.

Camna ni? Belasah jer lah.

The next day aku gi jer kedai tu.

Since Che Man ada conflict ngan pekedai tu dulu (long story... I tell you), I asked him just wait for me at some kopitiam. Aku cuma nak gi hantar camera for repair, bukan nak gaduh. He.. He...


Aku : Saya beli camera ni awal tahun kat sini. Semalam tetiba dia rosak. Gambar bergaris-garis. Gambar yang ambil sebelum semalam, elok pulak.

Pekedai : (Checked warranty card aku. Nasib baik dia tak minta receipt. Checked camera) Ada jatuh kan ker?

Aku : Takde! Takde! (Betul… tak tipu)

Pekedai : Well… jatuh tak jatuh is not for us to say kan?

Aku : (WTF?). Tell me how am I going to prove it to you that camera ni tak pernah jatuh? (nada suara dah tinggi sket)

Pekedai : Ok. Ok. I’ll give you receipt lah. Nanti dah siap we all call.

Aku : Good. How long will it takes?

Pekedai : Two months.

Aku : Hah? (Terkejut beruk). Why so long? (Mata aku terbuntang)

Pekedai : First dia orang akan assess whether this is due to your negligence. (Part ni aku hangin betul la) Then, they need to determine the real problem. Order spare parts, repair, yada. yada. yada. yada.

Sebal lah rasa hati aku tak de camera for 2 months. Terlepas la birthday aku, birthday Che Man and anniversary kita orang. Silap-silap terlepas hari jadi Aiman sekali. Itu belum lagi aksi-aksi spontan si Aiman. Sob! Sob!

I tried to talk to Che Man about getting a new one. Member geleng kepala jer. Tak merasa la nampaknya.

By the way, ini lah rupa nya gambar Aiman guna camera rosak tu. Nampak kat sini not so bad, but sometimes teruk betul lines tu. Sampai gambar pun senget-senget.

Aiman favorite past time - showing off his teeths.
Another two are making their way out from the top.

Face that Terrorize J*SCO Bukit Raja on Weekly Basis

He won't sleep.

He doesn't like to sit still in his stroller - He wants to stand up.
If we don't want to dukung him, he'll shout; calling for attention
He always get the attention - from people around us. We segan.

When we want to eat, he wants to eat too - our food.
When we want to drink, he wants some also.

He doesn't like people blocking his view - he'll scream at them.
When I tell him to behave himself, he'll give me this look:
"Muka tak bersalah"

Hati Sedang Risau

When I first receive the news, I was excited and anxious about it. I can 'see' a bright light enveloped the news. I waited for weekend to come anxiously.

At the end of weekend, I was a bit frustrated, that thing was not so smooth - even though I expected it already. May be I was too hopeful.

I gave myself another chance few days later. It ended-up alright but I know I should worry about another thing that bothering me for so long. Should we take action earlier there is no need for us to worry about. Now... is it too late? I tried to be positive and went ahead anyway.

This morning, I got the result. I am frustrated now. I know it’s coming and it has come. A reality that someone has tried to postpone too often. There is no need to get angry with someone. I had reminded this someone to settle it too many times already. Someone got to learn a lesson.

Che Man told me there is Plan B. He is working on it but it is not so promising. Despite the frustration that eating me inside out, I am still hopeful that we can still solve this problem as soon as possible. Key word : ‘as soon as possible’.

But what if we failed? What are the other alternatives? Should I just forget about it?

Maybe I am over reacting. I can't help it. Hati sedang risau.

Kami Kena Buli

..... oleh budak 9 bulan.
Aiman is getting better but not fully recovered.

Thank you for advices on how to handle the situation. Al maklumlah, first anak, mana la saya tau sangat. Panic tau la. In early stage, every time after minum susu, he will berak cair. Not only I have to change his diaper, I need to change his seluar, baju, alas tidur atau apa-apa lah yang in contact with his bontot at that time. Haru biru. Badan dia pun lemah, tak mau makan and meragam saja. Dah kurus anak ibu.

Now better.

Not every after minum susu dia berak, kalau ada pun tak banyak dan tak secair dulu (ok guys… if you are eating while reading this… you know what to do kan? Gross. I know!). Walau belum selera sangat nak makan, dia sudah makin energetic. Alhamdullillah. I NEED him to sembuh and sembuh fast.

Cerita lain lak.

When Aiman was 8 months, he could not crawl properly. He was on all fours but still, when he wants to move about, dia mengensot ala commando. Budak bertuah. I started to worry - Apesal la tak leh merangkak lagi ni? Then one day when I put him into his baby cot, he did these:

Tak mau baring. Terus bangun.

On his knees

Berpaut pada palang kayu & cuba berdiri

Adjusting his position

Doing his little dance routine

Pulak dah. Dia berdiri!. So we lowered down the cot’s base. But, we cannot put him in the cot anymore coz he keeps wanting to stand up. Kan baru jer belajar berdiri, tak stabil lagi. Few times, when he was practicing (with Ibu supervising him), dia jatuh-jatuh. Takut wei… kalau kepala dia kena kayu tu. Somemore, dia cuba panjat-panjat pagar tu macam dah terer sangat. So sekarang, kami tidurkan dia guna buaian and then alih ke katil in between me & Che Man.

Masalah lain pulak - Dia panjat kita orang.

Nak dijadikan cerita, this happened few days ago, Aiman slept at around 11.00pm and woke-up at 1.30am. After he drank susu, as usual he stayed up. Exited dah dapat berdiri sambil berpaut ni, dia panjat-panjat badan kita orang. Everytime after he managed to stand, he will do a little dance choreographed by himself – sangat cute okey…, then (bila dia dah penat or when we got irritated) we have to baringkan him again. This process continued until around 3.00am.

Tah camna aku tertido. Suddenly, “Bubbbbbb”, I heard something that scare the hell out of me and shortly I heard Aiman cried - so loud. I got up in panic and found him terlentang atas lantai! ANAK AKU JATUH KATIL! Uuwwaaaaaa! Panic. I took him to living room pujuk dia berhenti nangis. I checked his head, hands, legs and back for any sign of bengkak, patah and what not. Everything seems ok. Dia pun tak nangis lama.

I got to go to work that morning. So, I told MIL about happened and asked her to monitor him in case he cries for no apparent reason, to note any physical abnormality, vomit or anything perangai unusual. Until today, beside lebam kat forehead dia (alahai.. he must have had landed face down), he is fine - or should I worry? Should I take him to doctor?

My dear Aiman masih tak serik. Now is will sleep at around 11.00pm and get up at 1.30am and force us to play with him and panjat-panjat us or bantal; to stand and to do his little dance. He also uses our bed headboard as a support to stand, ended up kepala dia tertujah ke headboard – solid wood tu! He will only sleep at around 4.30am or 5.00am. Itu pun lepas Che Man puas buaikan dia. So, you know lah.... no one can really sleep these days.

He is 9 months today.

He has got 2 cute gigi bawah yang dia suka asah guna ASTRO remote control – somehow he always manages to find it; the remote control I mean. He can crawl now (finnally) and he loves his new skill coz he can get to our TV cabinet, sofa, kerusi, buaian or kaki meja faster and use them to support him while standing and dancing.

I put many big cushions kat lantai around my bed, just in case. My room is small. No space for us to bentang tilam. And to dismantle the bed and tidur bawah not really a good idea coz my sleep-fighter son will crawl to wherever he can find support for him to do his thing. I can’t imagine him doing that while we are sleeping (read : TER-tido).

No matter how he ‘tortured’ us the night or the morning before, every morning when I wake-up from my not-so-nyenyak sleep, I always feel happy & grateful because he is my boy. The one that makes me laugh, the one that makes me smile, the one that makes me cry, the one that makes me panic & worry and the one that makes me so grateful for being able to go through all these.

I guess I can only bersabar and appreciate everything that comes with 9-month-old boy.
