Mandom Kuantan

I just came back from Kuantan, reminiscing old memories (ok, i lied) but it's good to be back to the town where u grew up, schooling, spending ur teen years.. Be back to my old room (ok, i lied again) - it seems my old room dah transform jadi one big closet, banyak betul baju orang tuh!! Luckily we do have extra rooms to sleep in..

It
is musim tengkujuh, so I don't expect much as I am very aware of Kuantan wheather - heavily pouring angry rain + angry lightning & angry thunder. Woke up few times during sleep sebab terkejut bunyi guruh yang sangat kuat! Nevertheless, it's the place I grew up and I'm kida miss it - I remembered at one time I haven't seen the sun for almost a week as the weather sangatlah mandom.. Baju kene pakai banyak kali sebab kalau basuh slalu nanti kain pun x kering, after all cuaca sejuk badan pun x berpeluh.. hehehe

Apart
from that, it is good to chill @ berkulat at home (ok, i lied again) - Sessi berkulat is a huge success as all of us is down with flu, sorethroat, cough and for me extra pain at my butt or pinggang + leg cramps.. To make it worst everytime I cough, my pinggang hurts like shyt, I'm gonna stop complaining bout the side effects of pregnancy *full stop*

However, we managed to restock lotsa of seafood.. altho musim tengkujuh - Kuantan will always have fresh seafood supply & it's cheap (compared to KL), for fresh big Tenggiri u can get 13 bux for a kg.. murah la kan. Let alone, bawal, udang XXL, kembung..etc. Since we bought it direct from LKIM port, they dont do servis membersih & menyiang ikan.. End up, the tenggiri menjalar dlm bonet kereta - as what my mother said "Ikan tenggiri tuh besar mcm Ita" then Ana replied "eh melampau la tuh, besar macam paha Ita je"

I still dun understand why they compare myself with the tenggiri.. At the same place ada jual other stuff also more like pasar borong.. And Mama bought a big lengkong (cincau) which she compare with my body part as well - "Lengkong tuh besar macam paha Ita" which my sis have to agree! Apa la masalah derang nih, their paha is almost the same size like mine - tapi paha aku jugak yang dijadikan comparison..

Process
menyiang ikan giat dijalankan, I don't do it (they forbid me to do it - some superstitious eh? pompuan ngandung takleh siang ikan). Still saya turun padang by dehead the prawns and Ayong said to my mum "Aah, Ita memang tere kupas udang - ada one season amazing race road block dia kene dehead udang.. kalau Ita masuk sure menang league tu"

DH shud noe this as I always prefer buying udang yg fresh instead udang yg dah bogel - exception during my nausea time last puasa which he volunteerly bought udang bogel coz he said I'm too weak to go to fresh market let alone kupas udang with all the puking, headache & bleeding. Altho I'm not satisfied with the udang bogel condition but I have to say I'm thankful of his gesture thinking bout my condition yang asek x larat jer :P

Growing
up at Kuantan makes me very picky on seafood.. Kalau ikan kat pasar TTDI tuh lembik memang sorie la aku nak beli, mata merah pun kene reject.. Udang pun kene keras, kalau udang lembik sket badan dia meaning dah kene simpan few days la tuh.. And I dont eat fresh water fish, altho kampung saya di Temerluh/Mentakab which is famous with Ikan Patin!

Dah banyak merapu nih, better stop now.. Thought ingin bercinta secara cyber with DH, but I guess my body is not fit to stay late today with all the sneezing & coughing (so far tak demam lagi, tapi agak takut jugak).. Going to sleep now, Good Nite Malaysia & Good Morning Texas!
