Stormy and windy Spring...or is it summer now???

I have been going in and out of my blogspot trying to decorate the page and also to put all the blogger's links so that it'd be easier for me to visit. After few days, I am still lost. I can't just figure out on how to do that!! OMG, apa sudah jadi makcik.

Anyway, today the sun is so bright I feel i can just survive on solar power. One plan after another keeps popping up in my head. I should go and tidy up the flower beds outside. Maybe put in new flowers. The strawberry field needs to be cleaned up and replanted. The vegetable field also need TLC for new season. Planning to have potatoes, cabbage, beans and sunflowers there. The new garden furniture we bought last April is still standing on the balcony with no use. The weather has been bad. Storm after storm keeps it is so windy that the chairs were blown away. Have to ask the kids to go and pick them up.

So I excuse myself again for not going out to do all the things I should do. It is May and still it is not possible to do anything outside without freezing. The sun is shining but the wind...well, the wind is so cold we still have to put on our winter gear outside.

So today, I will only clean the house and arrange the kids bedroom. My eldest is now moving to his own room. Big boy already so he needs his space from his 2 younger brothers. So now the second one is sleeping with the youngest one instead. Both penakut. So they teman each other. These 2 boys, they see ghost everywhere, night and day. Drives me crazy sometimes...well, make it all the times...Elias is going around saying that there are lions everywhere. He freaks out even when the door is not close properly! Sometimes I wonder if these 2 boys have extra eyes that see things that I don't see. Anyway, regardless of how nice the sun is shining today, the wind does not allow me to do all the chores outside. Inside is the best place to be. I will command the kids to clean up and arrange their books and stuffs while I'm trying to imagine myself sitting on the beach of Kapas drinking coconut juice and eating kuih bom.

Bebelan pertama dari North Pole

1st location : Sofa 10.30am Norwegian time

I'm desperately trying to jot down few lines here to show my support to #blogrevivechallenge while my youngest son is screaming *mama, see this.* *mama see that* *mama come here* every 2 seconds. I can't think. My head wants to explode. The only thing that comes up in my head is how to make him stop calling me for the next 10 minutes (like I can finish this in 10 minutes..daaa!) so I can write this piece!! * wait whatapps messages from my sisters keep coming updating me about the by election...* see, to write like this.

In this new home I will avoid writing about politics and religion...I have learnt my lessons well from the old blog I had. :) *wait, Little Elias wants me to watch him successfully flying his remote helicopter*... Ok. Errr...what was it again that I wanted to write before? hmmm don't remember..typical kan..*sigh* Tak kisah lah the main point is no more about politics. Nanti berdetup2 hati dan segala isi perut i. Spoil my mood je kan.

2nd Location : Kitchen 11.10am Norwegian time

Ok, still no idea on what more to write so I think it is best to write while I'm making dinner. Today will be ikan kod bakar. So buat sambal dulu. This is one of our favorites now. Once a week mesti buat. Kids pun suka..senang cerita msak apa yg depa suka kan..


Sambal almost masak. Layan Elias nak lunch pulak. Time flies. Satlg nak pi kerja pulak. Haiyaaa...owh btw, I am still a stay-at-home-mom, but with a permanent job at the school here working 2 hours everyday and a substitute at the kindergarten when they need me and I take it when it suits me. I can bring Elias along. Tu sebab i accepted the job. I'm also privately tutoring English to  a German boy and have my own cooking class (yalah sgt kan)..konon prasan chef wan haha. *eh jap ada call plak*

12.17 noon

Sambal dah masak. Elias dah mkn. I je yg belum mkn..megi dah habis..mgkin PAMA ada lg..kena korek almari dulu tgk apa yg ada. Kena mkn sebelum pi mgadap batalion askar kat sekolah. Takut nnt mkn budak2 pulak haha.

So kesimpulannya in this blog I will write about our lives here in Norway, our activities la or mungkin bila tiba nak raya kita cerita kuih raya dan lagu raya.

Here are some pictures of the kids visiting a cave nearby here. The cave was used during the Bronze Age as hunting cave. Since this area was quite populated during that time, we have found many graves. I will write about that next time.
