i've lost 5 kilos thus far, but i think ill regain them back in no time..
Raya, what does it mean to u?
Aku ingat dahulu, zaman kanak2. Pantang sahaja cuti Raya (or any cuti for that matter), the whole family will be on their way balik kampung. The 8 jam drive seems like a cookie to handle. Now,at 20 something of age, i find any travel more that 5 hours, daunting..;p
Owh, did i mention both my parents are from Kelantan?
Me:Been a while since I went back to kelantan.
Person A: You orang kelantan ke? You dont look kelantanese.
ade rupe meh kltn ppl?
Me: I get that a lot..not looking remotely kelantan bit.
Person A: Really?
Me: Some say, if they had to guess...i look....Mexican..
Person A: ......(-_-!!)..wtfish..
Raya now has whole new sense of meaning, other than balik kampung and main mercun, lumba basikal sampai masuk parit at grandma's (i have bad luck with vehicles with 2 tires or less). Its fundamental roots only i have just realized as of late.
Raya, its about brotherhood, and family.
It's once in a year alasan for u to visit ur distant cousins, for u to say hi to ur always busy uncle who is always working. For u as a family to sit down as a unit, dressed nicely and fabulously, and have a meal together, take a picture together, forgive each other for their wrongs in the past year. Tell me, what other good alasan can u think of to visit people's houses ramai2?
people always say, what are friends for?
how bout we change that, or add to that.
What is family for?
i just bukak puasa. kenyang like crazy. a quick entry before i hit the showers.
have fun people.
Grandmas (one grandma from each side of the family), i wont be in kelantan for raya, so if any of u happen to have internet access at ur house, and by chance of God, learned how to navigate a computer web browser, and miraculously know the url address of this blog, and is reading this entri..
Selamat Hari Raya. Nanti bile cuti dan ada rezeki, Fasyan balik Kelantan. :D
