Udah Sampei......

Yesterday, I received a text message from Bibik's daughter, Ros in Lampung, informing me that her mother has arrived home safely. According to Ros, Bibik didn't manage to get a flight from Jakarta to Bandar Lampung as there was none available on the same day she arrived. Left with no choice, she took the taxi (known as "travel" over there) back to her kampung. It's a longggggg journey, almost 24 hours of travel time from Jakarta to Bandar Lampung.

Nissa is slowly adjusting to the present situation at home. I spend some time to see her off to school in the morning and she's absolutely pleased with this arrangement. It was only on the first night that she was rather down. When I checked on her that night, I saw her buried under her pillow, sobbing away. She was heart-broken I could see. A big hug came from me, calmed her down and we chatted about why Bibik had to leave. Alhamdulillah....she understood everything that was explained to her and able to come to terms with the change.

She asked me to post a nice picture of her and Bibik in the blog and help her to express her feelings about Bibik's departure.

This is for you Nissa...cheer up and always know that we all love you so very much.

Never realized
How lonely it would be
when the day came
and you went away

You said good bye
How my heart ached
I tried hard not to cry
But memories of you
Will guide me thru’

Kay, some maids are real godsent. My first was with us for 9 years, elderly like your bibik, she helped raised all my 4 babies until the youngest was 2 1/2 yr old. We keep in touch until now. The no2 and 3 didn't work out well. Alhamdulillah, my current one is also a godsent.

Aunty Edelweiss,

Thank you...thank you. I'm better today :D Cannot be sad too long. Mama tolerates no cry babies.

Dear Busybody,

We must thank our lucky stars for having these godsent ones. I knw how it feels when they are involved in bringing up babies. You really need those super doper good ones, kan?

Adatlah I guess, they come they go. We just pray that they work out fine with us. But I believe, the majikans must play their part tu. Train them, teach them patiently how to do things. Jangan pulak tak train, and then blame them for not knowing what to do. That is so very not fair!!!

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you Selamat Hari Raya & Maaf Zahir Batin. Have a good Raya yah :)

No wonder la Nissa camtu, your bibik seemed so motherly, mcm nenek sendirik la kan. Sian Nissa, well time heals

Dear DR,

Nissa memang manja with Bibik. Personally I feel it's good to have an elderly Bibik (and not so pretty ones too) Tendency nak lari tu kurang.

Aunty Kay,
If your Bibik had met me, she would have adopted me too...purrr... Your Merci is a girlcat, no? Maybe when Nissa is older she can go visit Bibik at her village.

Dear Cat-in-Sydney,

I'm very sure Bibik will adopt you had she met you earlier. Bibik loves cats despite having to clean the poop every mornin' :D

Merci is a gurl car, yes!! Very far is Bibik's village. It would be an adventure for Nissa I'm sure, if she gets to do that coz Bibik's village is real kampung. It takes an hour to drive to the nearest town!!

I seek permission from yr mama to link her :)

ooppsss..gurl "cat" i mean :)

Teringat masa bibik Ratemi tinggalkan mas Alim dulu. It is ok Nissa. Altho sedeih, Alim rock je lepas tu. Cheer up!
