All the way from Tawau and back to Malaysia


What a weird title huh! I have 2 stories to write about today. I've tried to figure out the best title to put up there and it ends up like that. Let it be. I'm not writing an educational journal, anyway ;).


What about Tawau? Well, yesterday evening Abang came back with a box of parcel. I suspected it already since we don't get parcel everyday in here :). Also, if anyone wants to send anything, I have to give them Abang's company address. No postman sending letters from house to house here. They use P.O Box. I guess people have to rent a P.O Box in the post office and get their mails there. I'm not 100% sure about this though.



In short, the parcel was from Tawau Sabah and it contained the superb yummy Keropok Amplang!! Thanks Adry. Thanks a lot. By the way, I got this as a gift for being the first 5 (or 10?) to give comments in one of his particular entry. Of course I wasn't intentionally read his blog for the Amplang. Sometimes sincerity pays well, I guess :).


Looking at the keropok and the cost to send it all the way to Jubail, I guess it's the most expensive Keropok Amplang ever! Susah susah aja Adry... I never had Amplang before but I can assure you it is delicious. Also, the one that Adry sent to me contains no artificial coloring and flavour. Rasanya tak sempat puasa dah habis ni Adry!! hehehee..


A 2nd story is, we went to the Dammam Airport yesterday evening to send Abang's friend who will have a short vacation in Malaysia. Pok Li (Abang's friend) will be in Malaysia for 2 weeks. Happy holiday Pok Li!



The plan was Abang wanted to go alone to accompany Pok Li to the airport. Knowing me (sick of the walls), I insisted to go along coz' I just wanna be out of te house. The kids were having fun running around in the airport. I like Dammam Aiport compared to Jeddah Airport since it's bigger, more organized and more user friendly :).
