Started from last Sunday until yesterday, we traveled to several places. My car was on the move since that day and I think if it could speak, it would scream of fatigue. On Sunday we followed 6 other families of my old office colleagues to spent the holidays at Kamalodge near Bukit Larut Taiping. We spent the day by having lunch at Mak Jah's Mee Udang and dinner at Kuala Gula which is popular with crab dish.The later was not that good and the service was very slow. My husband went out again that night buying food from the fast food restaurant.
After breakfast the next day, Aurora spent nearly two hours in the pond. My husband took her out from the water before she turned blue. Of course, with a lot of tantrum he managed to pull her out, wrapped her in towel, I hugged her close and fed her with warm milk and then she was okay.
We checked out and went to our separate ways. Me and my family went around the town, had lunch at Doli's Kueyteow. The rest of my friends either did some shopping or went straight home. Later we went to visit my dear friend, Mani, who stays in Taiping. The night before I called her up asking her whereabouts. She was at home and gave a shocking news. She is down with a stroke. Eye stroke to be exact. She is seeing double visions. Her right eye is having the problem now. I was so sad seeing her like that. Her brother brought her back from Sentul because she is alone there.
We came back that afternoon. When I reached home, immediately I began to pack Ayuni's bags and things. Everything was packed nicely and to be put into the car the next day, Tuesday, for that day she would register at her new school in Bagan Datoh.
So, yesterday, we started from home at 8 a.m and reached Bagan Datoh two hours later. Finished everything around 4 p.m. And it was the time to say goodbye. All the time I controlled my emotions coz I didn't want to show my sadness to her. We hugged and my voice got stuck in my throat and followed by my tears running down my eyes. The father stayed inside the car, refused to look. He was sad too but I lost control.
All along the way home I cried in the car. My husband failed to console me. I went to bed early, started to miss her in the morning, during my morning cooking session and in the car to go to work. I dropped my neighbour's daughter in Ayuni's old school and when she kissed my hand before going out of the car, immediately my tears dropped again. Truly, I miss my girl Anduk..Even at this moment. It is so hard for me..The older I get, the more I need them around..Somehow I have to bear this..day by day.
I know, Net, I have to..I have to.
