wholesome food on our plates ... (see that Kicap Kipas Udang & Lingham's sauce!)
long luxurious baths...
a warm, comfortable bed during cold windy nights.
Home is a "social context" (Understanding Educational Research! hehe!)
... a place of nurturing
a sanctuary of love ...
Home is where the heart is :)
(A feeble attempt at poetry...hehehe!)

At that time, with a lot of things that we had to do before we leave, I would smile wryly and say,
Being a true hot-blooded mammal from a tropical country, I have not really gotten used to the cold weather. I go to school dressed to a T (as in THICK) that some of my classmates would tease:
"My! You must have come from a warm country!"
"Enjoy the sun while you still can..." the locals added, cheerfully. By their standards, Bristol's weather has never been better.

I did not have any pictures of us at KLIA, but it was so "mengharukan" that family members and relatives took the trouble to send us off. Amid all that, the 5 of us did not shed a single tear but I was told that Yasmin, my niece, cried all the way back to Seremban (don't know if my father exaggerated to make us feel guilty for being so 'heartless'! Haha!). Truth is, we were emotionally & physically drained by a lot of things for months that we just don't know what to feel, think and do anymore. We were thinking, let's get this over with and try to get some rest once we arrive in the UK.
Well, we did get some rest and pampering on the plane. Flying Malaysia Airlines, business class, the stewardess practically fluttered around you till you couldn't breathe! After all, we were reminded time and again that they were "award-winning cabin crew". Hohoho!
The food... well, even though I'm not into their elaborated prawn cocktail, the rest was OK. Yup, that's right: ONLY OK. I mean, food should be savoured in the right ambience. Eating satay on a plane? I'd rather have smoke sting my eyes while I enjoy my satay at Samuri's belakang stadium Kajang tu... Huhuhu...
... to be continued (really have to read those journal articles ASAP)...

My favourite picture: Jon Syahmi, my cutie-pie :)
This would have been a nice picture of the Mister and Missus, if not for the 'noise' in the background (the telephone cable and that colorful 'flower' near my head!) Human hindsight.

Below are pictures of Jon and his friends in his final weeks in Malaysia (no lengthy write-up for a change!)
