Balik Kampung Version 1.0 (2012)

On the last weekend of January recently, we decided to balik kampung. For some reasons, balik kampung is a huge thing for us nowadays. We don’t get to do it as often as we like. Why we can’t even “afford” to do so during Raya (these last three years), which is really a bummer.

So when opportunity to balik kampung presented itself last January (with some tweaking with the family’s monthly budget and work off-days for Bapak and daughter number one), we jumped into the car and drove off. Excitedly.

I tell you that we were mightily grateful for that “once in a blue moon” trip and even after almost a month, we are still reminiscing about it.

Anyways, here’s our trip in pictures….., which of course turned into jalan-jalan cari makan trip as well….

First stop - Rawang R&R, makan lunch and beli menatang ni....

After picking up MIL at my sister in law's place, we made our way to Kampung Perak, Temoh, the kampung halaman and visited my home, my childhood home. Sayu jugak tengok rumah tinggal ni - the kampung pun in a very sorry state, there is only a handful of houses left. Even more sedih is the fact that this house will soon be leveled as my younger brother (he owns the house now) intends to buat kebun kelapa sawit or something. Oh! Well....

And this is what's left of my wife's old home (at the other end of the same kampung).. lagilah sedih... tinggal tangga batu sahaja....,
 later that night... masa untuk bersuka ria pun bermula ....

MIL belanja dinner at satu restoran ikan bakar in Kampar.... but we were so hungry lupa nak snap photos of the makanans.. and anyways, keadaan adalah agak gelap gelita kerana al-fresco la keadahnya mlm itu. Yang penting, segala apa yang terhidang - licin-licap.
Tukang belanja and her cucus... sorry ya semua gambor dia tutup mata punya...hehee
The next morning, we got ready to attend a wedding in Taiping (wedding anak Kak Enon - Yan's cousin)

But on the way over, we stopped over makan breakfast di Malim Nawar and had this awesome nasi lemak... sangat2 sedap. Trust me, its very sedap.
Upon reaching the dewan kenduri, maka sessi bergambar raya pun bermula... here's Alia with the wedding planner's punya mini cooper

Us and the mak bapak pengantin - Kak Enon and Abg Aziz

Sisters and Cousins - anggun la 
The girls and their Abang Mi, who is the wedding planner and also the brother of the bride.

Me and my anak bongsu Arissa

Abang Mi took them on a ride in his mini cooper... semua2 ni masuk dalam satu kereta yang cenonet tu (as if they are aiming for some record or something)... praq or not, I don't know?
Dah sampai Tepen, tak sah la tak menyinggah di Lake Garden yang gorgeous itu la kan..

Arissa berpayung-payung di Lake Garden Tepen
Posing-memosing
More posing memosing
The trees around the lake are somewhat amazing and unique, yes?
Contoh bercanda di taman bunga... kalau belum kahwin, bercandalah dengan adik beradik ataupun sepupu  atau kengkawan yang sejenis sahaja,  ya adik-adik!

Or if you are older, boleh duduk sahaja di kerusi  menghirup udara petang sambil memangku cucu yang sedang tidur, or eat ice cream (by the way, the ice cream itu sangatlah sedap, bertambah sedap kerana harga dia RM1 sahaja)

 After that we made our way back to KL ... but not before we singgah Kuala Kangsar to makan-makan lagi...
The food we had - laksa kuala, rojak buah, ketupat palas and rendang daging, apam, interesting looking keuteow goreng and we brought kuih putu bambu (ye ke?) and dodol and wajik durian. One word - pengsan!!!

Lihatlah dua beranak ini sedang menikmati hidangan di Kuale...
...dan seseorang menantu sedang membodek mak mentua.. But she's the most gracious lady that I've ever met in my life.
 Lepas tu we went separate ways... we finally headed back to Subang Jaya, short trip balik kampung but fantastic to the max. Alhamdulillah.

but of course, upon reaching Tanjung Malim, we stopped for solat and  pekena pau tanjung malim yang famous itu la plak.
 And then after almost 4 hours of driving (lebih kurang la), we reached home and our two cats..... and the next evening, we ended our makan-makan excursion by having Nasi Arab kat Restoran Saba di Cyberjaya. Saja je kan...

Yummeh to the Yes!!!

This is more like balik untuk makan so happen di kampung. But what I like best were the happiness radiating from the pictures. More please. :-)
