I still run to you...

When i asked the kids....
*do u wanna pick your baba up from the airport??*
Both excitedly screamed
When i asked *car* or ferry?*.. naturally they said the easy transportation of the two... *car!* hahaha brilliant kids....
But the thing is... i had never driven a car to the other side of the bridge at all!! Not that i know of the roads anyway..... Meşe and my beloved suggested that i go thru the second bridge to the other side of the bridge... theyy said.. go straight and straight and straight until u see the sign board saying to turn right for the airport...
Not that i know which way to the 2nd bridge eh? I have always got mixed up between the two. and Yup!.. i went to the road to the first bridge instead!! The traffic was terrible then....and Yup.. straight i went.... until.....*USKUDAR???* wasnt i supposed to reach the bridge yet? Uskudar is definitely still in asia!! huwaaaaaaaaaaa....i got lost!! (of course nobody told me to go straight only after i have reached the çevreyolu.. i went straight from ankara asfalt! hahahahaha... Never drove to uskudar before...i drove and drove....trying my luck....had a splitting headache..though bravely driving ... hey!i had 2 kids in tow, man!...and i saw a familiar place... *capitol shopping mall!!*...
From there..i drove to polis hastanesi .. and asked the taxi driver there... i asked them to tell me the way home... and at the back hatice dissapointedly said....*we r going home?? i thought we would pick baba up??*...they told me the instructions to the way home but i got sooooooooooooo confused (and tired and my head felt like it would burst) that i paid the taxi driver 15ytl to show me the way home heheheheheh... a quater way... the taxi guy stopped next to the road.. and told me that he talked with his friend and the friend told him that the way to the airport was traffic free... i didnt wanna break the kids' heart and so... i thanked the taxi driver and we parted way.... me still very confused of the way....and guess what?? it was 4.35pm!! and my beloved was to land by 4.45pm!!!! .. and we... we were still in Asia instead of Europe!! hahahaha How do u reach europe in 10 mins time?? ridiculous eh??
But we went on.. yup.. it was starting to get dark... i was driving around 80-100km/h...there was this big truck driver who thought i was going slow and kept blinking the blink light at me...arghhhhhh how irritating!! but i kept my cool... i didnt wanna swear.. and so..i kept the ilahi songs on all the way to the airport...... and finally.. at 5.20pm...with my beloved having to wait around half an hour... my kids... my beloved and i were reunited...... and it seems that he had his own adventure of his own during the flight.... it was a terrible flight due to the strong wind.. and Alhamdulillah.. i am thankful to Allah for not letting the plane crash or something...i have missed him so much!! See how crazy love is? See what it made me do? Interesting indeed! hahaha
My beloved... before going to Bosnia last Friday...
Isnt he sweet?
You should have seen his innocent smile face.. hearts can melt! hehehehe
So that was my first real adventure trying to drive a car to Europe....i took 3 hours last night to reach the airport...and by the time we reached home...well...we were sooo glad to be home....really really glad...
The good thing is..... well... now i know the way to uskudar (hehehe).. now i know how to go to capitol from uskudar way... now i know the short cut way home from capitol... and most importantly... i reached the airport in a totally most adventurous way!!!!! hahahah ....
Baddin with his tombala (Thursday)... ie..dictation box...
Hatice with splitting headache.. hair all uncombed...learning how to read the time with this aid which i bought sooo many years ago....

The Eid Adha is coming soon... busy days ahead...i will be rushing here and there as usual.. God! i wish i can just sleep and sleep..but i cant.. i am soo exhausted..
We will also be expecting a family visiting us for dinner at 7pm on the 7th Dec...i am really looking forward to get to know the whole family.. (ps.. keluarga u all takut kuching tak?)....
Till eid day with eid photos of the Zaim family...

Halil, Nur Hatice, Sabahaddin and Simah
of the Zaim family....
we wish u all...
a very very blessed... Eid adha
İyi Bayramlar...
Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha...
Maaf Zahir dan Batin...

It will also be Baba's first year Anniversary of his demise this 2nd raya...
Time flies very fast, eh?

Thank You for hopping by. Hope to see you again soon... :0)

Your driving gets better each day. I am sure you can even do the formula one knowing how the traffic is there. *grins*

May you have a good bayram too! hugs to the kids and of course pakizem.

Assalamualaikum simah,
Apasal tak guna google map. Siap bagi directions and which turn to take. Siap dengan distance skali. That's how i got around to anywhere in KL. Just give me the address and I'll be there in no time.

You see, getting lost is not so bad after all. It's an adventure! At least now you know the way to many new places.

Tapi kelakar betul, siap bayar taxi driver to show you the way home!

Selamat menyambut hari Raya Aidil Adha, Simah!
