Semalam mak saya kata, kalau balik Slim nanti belikan benih timun.
" Tapi kan mak baru beli benih petola. Dah bertunas ke?", saya tanya dengan tidak bersalah..
" Dah.. Mak dah hantar pun ke rumah Makcik Som kamu. Mak nak tanam timun pulak. Mahal sangat timun kat Tf tadi", nampak tak permainannya..
Kalau saya yang belikan, mungkin makan tahun baru dapat benih timun tu, so I suggested we go to Slim on Sunday. Mak saya kata, eh... Kita tengokla dulu...
Pagi ini mak saya bangun macam biasa, sebelum Subuh. Pukul 7 dia bersarapan dan pakai stoking. Mak kata she could not sleep last night sebab kakinya kejang.
I massaged her feet n asked her to sleep as we can always go to buy cucumber seed at 9a.m. Still hv time meh..
Sunday is d day everyone in d House tetiba rajin. Acho swept d lawn n later cleaned d drain. Saya basuh kain n kemas rumah, then siram pokok sebab mak x larat..
Siapa pulak yang sedia brekkie?
My mom, terus bangun n fried nuggets. Kalau saya tak sihat, saya terus tidur n x peduli hal lain dah, but not my mom...
Then, we went to Slim River.
First, mestilah beli benih timun tu. Mom bought lemang. Thats all. I bought 3 t-shirts for Adik, Mingguan Malaysia, Harakah n Mastika for my bros. Penting!!
We stopped at Tom Yum House, but d lunch was not ready yet so we headed to Econsave. Tak ada apa pun nak beli.. Ended up mom picked a bottle of 100+. I bought 5 packets of Jacknjill n 4 tin of Wonda Coffee.
Then we had lunch.
She picked a fish which was my late father's favourite. She hardly chose that before. I picked grilled chicken n gave her half.
When I was small food was scarce. We rarely had chance eating chicken let alone having a whole fish for ourselves. Now, we can afford good food, but what I want is to share them with my mom. 💖
I noticed lately my mom favourite quote is, " mana2 lah".
When I asked where to way, dat was her answer.
"Kita ikut jalan lama boleh tak mak? mak larat tak?" I asked again.
" Mak ok. Mana2lah", she replied..
But she was not ok. she dozed off half of d Journey. Once we reached home, she chatted with Uda for a while before she went into deep slumber.
At 2, when I wanted to go back she was still sleeping.
Mokcik tetiba cengeng while writing this.
Somehow saya bersyukur saya takder rumah menghadap Laut Cina Selatan, or else I might not be able to spend my weekends with mommy.
Worst, I might not be able to listen to all her stories.
Saya juga bersyukur saya tak kaya dan ada harta berjuta. Mungkin terpaksa saya susah hati siang malam fikirkan how to stay rich 24/7.
Saya juga bersyukur jodoh saya bukan dengan Brad Piť dulu. Kot tak... Hahahaa..
Till next Weekend.
Do u miss ur mom peeps?
