A few nights ago while trying to put you to sleep, you started talking about the memories we had in Adelaide. You would't stop talking about the 'rumah oren' as you called it, until today i still don't know what it means..i don't know why you called it that way, maybe its the orange bricks because there are certainly no orange paints. You loved the whole house especially the spacious and private backyard where you and yaya can play and roam around. It is private enough that ammi don't need to wear hijab when
It got me thinking, as this blog is dedicated to all you boys, i want to start writing about the memories mostly sweet ones we had in Australia. In the end of 2008 i started a blog,http://ammisara.blogspot.com/, but then i got severe morning sickness while pregnant with waidi, the blog was then abandoned...from now on i will start writing about memories in Australia as well as current event happening in our lives. I guess living in Australia mainly Adelaide had quite a large impact on us, it certainly did to me. Even though it was just about a year we stayed there, we made lots of new friends, been to beautiful places ,experienced the four seasons, went through the worst heatwave, yaya and syaik went to school there and of course waidi is a 'made in Aussie' baby ;).
Here are some pictures of our house in Adelaide. Our 'rumah oren'.....
Syaik and Yaya having a picnic, while sucking homemade milo lollies,
and watching 'The Wiggles' on the portable DVD Player.
This is a candid pix, neither of you realised ammi snapped it
The huge and spacious backyard. Wow! ammi had loads of
laundry that day ;)
Notice the dry grass? the heat are different in Australia, its mostly dry..
This is nearly summer time, it got worst in summers. The grasses
turns yellow. It was like a desert at the back
This is the the front of the house. We were going out to baby
Mujahid's aqiqah. Sorry waidi, you weren't born yet. No pixs of you ;)
The garage located next to the house. Goes straight to the backyard.
If the door is shut down, its total privacy at the back.
Our Ford Falcon, old , cheap but still in good condition, took us everywhere around Adelaide
A few months later, baba found a piece of wood and bought some
ropes. Voila! Swing made by Baba. You boys loved it!
Other times we had a BBQs in the back. In this pix baba is BBQing
fishes, that time ammi teringin sangat makan ikan bakar,
masa pregnantkan waidi..
Can't remember what kind of fishes they are, given by uncle zai/aunty pura, such nice people.
3 whole fish! Kenyang sangat alhamdulillah and many leftovers too
Yummy weren't they waidi...;-)
It was raining, but you boys insisted to play, ammi forced both of you
to wear the raincoats, actually those were for adults, thats why they
look extra big on you boys. Ammi had to tuck syaik's in his pants,
or else you would trip over darling! hehe...
I will write more entries of memories in Adelaide. Syaik please don't be sad. InsyaAllah "bila baba kaya nanti" as you keep saying, we'll go back there for a visit ya darling, huhuhu...
