I hear thunder...

It's drizzling in Dubai the moment I'm writing this. I've missed rain so much since I came here last summer. I went out to the balcony stretching out my hands and I could feel very tiny drops of water falling on my hands. Aahhh...it feels so good. No wonder we could hear thunder just now. Eh no, I can hear thunder now. Loud ones.

This is the second one, the first was on Sunday (Nov 16) when the skies in Dubai opened up to bring light showers to Dubai and also other parts of the UAE. I didn't realize when actually it rained that Sunday or Saturday night. I was sending Along and Ain down to the lobby early that morning to take their school bus when we were greeted by a new cloud cover of Dubai, the fresh air and of course the wet ground. The smell of rain hhmm...I missed this! The rain, which had brought down the temperature to a minimum of 21 degree C, was followed by a sandstorm that evening. Again, I was safe and sound hibernating in my apartment and not knowing what was happening outside there. This one I've never experienced. I hope I get to experience it one day.

It's the beginning of winter in Dubai. Ain has had fever since last Sunday (Nov 23). Ain was given a two-day MC but until today she is still not fit enough to go to school. Along just had it yesterday. So, since yesterday I had to tend to both of them. At night, had to keep checking on their body temperature while they were sleeping. Although they're no longer babies, I'm so worried the temperature might go up drastically which could bring bad consequences. I've had sleepless nights these few days. For the kids, I don't mind.

Just now, Apit was in a bad mood. When I took him in my arms, oh no...a nasty temperature. Worse still, he refused to be given medicine, Ain's medicine. Seems like another sleepless episode for me tonight...

Could it be due to the weather changes? Probably. It's seasonal ailments that are brought in by change in weather.

p/s - What if the mother is having fever? I'm not going to ask who's going to take care of me. Instead, I'm going to ask who's going to take care of the kids..especially when the father is not around??

Memang selalu macam tu - kids sakit kita jaga, but when kita sakit ??? Your hubby p mana pulak this wk? Take Care.

Typo : As usual - not usually.

Raining heavily in KL n Sabah, both your places? Hhmm rindunya nak tgk hujan lebat he he. Ironik kan. Ya la this is already the end of the year, memang musim tengkujuh la kat Msia ni.

As usual Doll, my hubby's off to Tehran and will be back this afternoon. That question is too complicated to answer, right.

Shiela : Laa...tak perasan ke hujan? Ya la kan awak kena pegi keja subuh2, mesti tido awal kan.

Eiyda : Dah jangka demam ni mesti sebab pertukaran cuaca nak masuk winter. Maklum la kitorang ni belum penah experience winter kat Dubai ni lagi, tu yang body system pun terkejut tu. Anak2 sihat?

domestic engineer said...

Iza : Thanks for the compliment and thanks for dropping by. Salam perkenalan juga.

Hai Naza, welcome back from your hibernation in Kajang! Musim fever belum over la, in fact baru bermula kat sini. Anak2 are recovering Alhamdulillah.

Slim River banjir ke? Anyway, do take good of yourself and the kids k.

Anak2 ida alhamdulillah sihat..ida jer yg teruk kena selsema n batuk ari tu..ida selalu kena mcm tu tiap2 tahun..skrg ni alhamdulillah dah ok..Harap k.ziela dan anak2 cepat sembuh!

domestic engineer said...

Oh Eiyda pun demam dan batuk ke? Syukurlah budak2 tu sihat. Kak Ziela pula hari tu macam nak demam, dah sakit2 badan tapi cuba buat2 tak tau langsung tak jadi demam. Try to be strong for anak2. Ni pun macam nak kena selsema juga ni. Kena minum banyak air kosong dan air madu perah limau ni.
