She's over 80-years-old (even Umi didn't know her exact age), but she's still strong, and I could say healthy. She could walk around the house with no problems. She also went to the Raya prayers, and to the grave of her late beloved husband.
Our new ride
.. and it's more comfortable than the Kelisa. Plus we get to put a whole lot more stuff in the trunk. We got it just the day before we went back to Sitiawan. And I got to puke in it on the way back home :)
The vicious-looking dog
This dog actually belongs to the house in Sitiawan. The only Malay house over there with a dog. But it's not exactly a pet, it's more to get rid of the pesty monkeys from the hasil-hasil tanaman. And I should say, they're (there are 2 of them) quite well trained. We can hardly find any dog poo around and they don't chase after people, except when somebody gets on the kapcai and they're all excited to chase and follow :
Trip to the beach
Yeszaaa, we went to the beach. The nearest one was Teluk Senangin. There was also Teluk Batik and the Lumut jetty (for trips to Pulau Pangkor) nearby, all within 15-20 minutes drive. The beach here was clean cos not that many people come (and leave their litter all over the place). But to my disappointment we didn't have a dip in the water, Umi and Baba wasn't in the mood to get wet then. So just some quality time on the sands..
This is the meriam paip besi that we have in kampung. But nobody wanted to play it seriously, cos there's too many adults around. But we did get a taste of the action and the sound :
