the good old days...

i think tiz is the 3rd time lil missy had step foot inside my grandma's house, but unfortunately my paternal grandma left us almost 2 years back. may she rest in peace. i spent most of my childhood here. whenever there is skool holidays, we are being sent here. haha... cus its a kampung (village) & its safe. ya, it's safe cus everyone knows everyone. hehe. i climbed the rambutan trees, i tried to ride the motorcycle for the 1st time. had a lil crush on the neighbour's son. wahahahaha! ok enuf said...

we managed to bring lil missy back over the weekend, cus my cousins & their kids were all back courtesy of skool holidays. and boy oh boy, lil missy was having a whale of time running & jumping around, shouting & laughing...

oh oh oh yes. the 1st thing i did when i reached grandma's place... i ordered a bowl of noodles from next door auntie. i tell u. tiz simple noodle soup is simply the best ever! me & a cousin of mine, who now resides in Taiwan, were talking about it just few days ago. how we used to enjoy it. walaoeh, sedap sedap! and its only RM2.30! how about tat?! tell me where can u still find a RM2.30 noodle soup.

haaaah... the good old days. i wonder if our kids would get to enjoy all tiz now. no rambutan trees at my parents home, no motorcycle to ride on, no cute boy next door (hehehe!)

wishing you guys a HAPPY NEW YEAR

see ya on the other side!

This reminds me my good old days also spend in grandma place and there also have a noodle stall opposite the house...

It is nice to spend time with your new generation at the place you used to grow up...so you prefer city life or kampung life?

Where is your kampung?? Sounds really great. I've always been a city gal but I love it when I return to Penang and visit my grand uncle in his half-wooden house in Glugor, and eat traditional food. Happy New year dear!

I enjoyed my childhood too - I climbed guava trees, catched tadpoles in drains, cycled for hours round the neighborhood and yes, had crush on neighbor's sons too, haha!
