Dendang Perantau

This Syawal is going to be different for me. I'm not going home. There's no balik kampung this time. I wont be listening to those nostalgic Raya songs or getting melancholic reminiscing my childhood Raya years while driving through Karak highway this year.

In fact it's going to be different for all of us, my family and i.

And going home is not the only thing we wont have to do this Syawal. Langsir tak payah tukar. Bilik tak payah kemas. Pelita tak payah pasang. Daging/ayam tak payah tempah and periuk belanga + pinggan mangkuk can just stay where they are.

If doctors wont let Ummi leave her hospital bed for even one afternoon on Eid, we'll just have to celebrate Raya as meriah as we possibly can with her there.

Where ever she is, that's our home now.

At least you tak berdendang dalam sepi.

I ni ha tak boleh nak imagine raya nanti macam mana. Dahlah kena kerja, jauh dan sorang-sorang pulak tu.

Sabar jer lah.

A very good daughter indeed. Sanggup sacrifice your raya for her. I guess I would do the same if I were in your shoes.

Raya kat mana2 pun sama ajer as long as with our beloved ones; especially if it is our mom. Wish her full recovery. Salam for her.

Wow Kak Mas! I'm shocked!! You are active in Facebook and Blogspot! WOW WOW and WOW! Good Good! At least now we'll be able to communicate easier and more often! Woo hoo! sorry to hear about your mum. I hope she gets well very very soon. Although you won't be going back to kampung for Hari Raya this year but at least you'll still be with family and that's whats important....

Ha ah kan Dee, lagu u lagi sedih kan? Tapi tak pe, tak semua orang dapat merasakannya tau, u antara yang terpilih ;)

Mudah-mudahan Naza, insyaallah.

Well Ziela, like u said, anyone would do the same. And if it was a sacrifice pun, i wouldnt be the only ramai-ramailah kome berarak ke HUKM tu esok. Ntah kan it would be among the fun-nest raya who knows!

Betul Zaida, it's not where you are, it's whom you're with kan?

Ye lah Tay, i am way luckier compared to those yang kehilangan kan...way luckier. Alhamdulillah.

Now ni we're just a click away :) A phone call away pun tak sedekat ini kan Tay?

Clicklah lagi ya.
