406. Hi

Hi Everyone!

A big apology from Mak isah...as it has been a long time since my last update.

Still...I do hope many of you still come to visit me here, if not to read my latest entry, you still can read some of my old entries.

With that Mak isah sincerely says a thousand thanks :)

I hope all has been well for you as well as your families there...my dear blogger friends!

Mak isah has been to Kuching to visit my mom in law. She is well at her age of 87 and Mak isah and hubby misses her a lot. We always made it a point to visit her at least a couple of time each year.
This recent visit was quite special because visiting Kuching with hubby will also enable him to rest his left knee which has been paining him quite a lot recently. Away from Miri will be leave from work for him. Mak isah only wish his leave was longer than it was.

So let Mak isah share some photos with you? :)

Mak isah MIL who is 87 this year. She is a Chinese converted. So my hubby can speak the Hokkien language very well. Mak isah speaks very little he he...

Mak isah MIL's house in Kuching

Her passion? Flowers... all around her house... When she was stronger she plant them herself, now a gardener comes once a month.

Mak isah SIL, who cooks, look after the house and MIL. She is a very nice person. Mak isah likes her a lot.

Orchids from MIL 'back of the house' garden

This visit to Kuching was even more special because Mak isah has the privilege of meeting one of Mak isah blogger buddy, USRAHFATIHAH and her family. She, her hubby and her 3 pretty little girls came to visit Mak isah.

It was special, even though it was just for about 20 minute and a couple of hours before Mak isah due to go to airport back to Miri.

Thanks Ummu...for your kind gesture. Hope we can meet and spent a longer time next time.

Mak isah MIL is like a mother to Mak isah as now both Mak isah parents are in heaven.
I will always cherish the times I've had with my late mom. And for my MIL and for all those of you mothers out there 'A Very Happy Mother's Day' ( hope it is not too late to wish).

Love you all, Goodnight!

For 2 whole days Mak isah couldn't enter BLOGGER at all. Now I can but Mak isah is alarmed to see that there are only 5 comments here.

In fact Mak isah has replied all your comments here on the 10th, now they all seemed to disappear !!

So sad :(

I hope they (THE COMMENTS that Mak isah wrote on that day) will reappear...soon,

or else

Mak isah thought of re writing once again.

Puan Isah said...

Salam Ummu..
You're most welcome. Thank you too for giving us the privilege of knowing you, your hubby & your 3 lovely girls :)

Surely, Mak isah will go on blogging & crocheting as long as Mak isah able to.

Have a good week ahead my dear

Puan Isah said...
