Hope all are in good health after stuffing your tummy with food, food and more food. And I bet, those who are working, will find it hard to get back to work after the long holiday (bet many of you applied for a whole week leave right?)
Well this Eid, I had quite a bad experience actually. On the third and forth day of Eid, I was flat. Down with food poisoning! That wasn't my first experience of food poisoning, but I must say, this one was the worst! I was all drained out! I even had a jab...huhuhu... all thanks to the shirmp. I am pretty sure, that is the culprit because even mom, my sis and my brother-in-law wasn't feeling good after eating the shrimp from that restaurant. Mr Hubby, Fatin and Syahmi didn't eat shrimp, and they are all fine. So yes... it's the shrimp!
Actually we planned to stay in Malacca till Tuesday but then, had to prolong it till Thursday. On Saturday, we had a lovely experience (I guess that's to balance the horrible experience I had earlier on). It wasn't planned but it just happened. We had a 'Convoi Raya' with our Malawi Circle of Friends. We started from Kg Dato' Baginda - Sg Ramal - Putra Heights - Shah Alam - Bandar Enstek - Bandar Seri Putra. From there we split with them and went to one of our Sri Lanka Circle of Friends, now residing at Bandar Bukit Mahkota. Didn't spend much time there as we had to rush home. Another family from Sri Lanka Circle of Friends were coming to visit us. Gosh, it was very tiring but definately something worth treasuring......
