Raya eve thoughts

Raya eve, the last day of Ramadhan...most likely.

I think everyone should stop fighting and reflects on things.

We should try to see each other and seek forgiveness.

Well, of course that's just my wish. It will never happen.

The fighting will continue.

Even on Raya day, I think.

Too much bad blood already.

Never mind. It has been like that for quite a while now.

But still, I miss my friends whom I have not seen ever since the fighting started two years ago.

I'm also missing my beloved. much.

Another sombre Raya for me, I guess.

Honestly, I don't really enjoy Raya much these days.

I will just be doing the usual obligatory rituals of wearing the baju Raya and eating and visiting relatives of my father's side of the family.

That's about it.

I'm not even going to balik kampung.

The mosque of my kampung

None of my father's family members is in Kluang anymore. All of them are now in KL.

Good also. No need to go through the horrible Raya highway jam.

Well, Raya is indeed not much of a celebration for me these days.

But that's me. I hope you all enjoy your Raya very much instead.

For today, I still have an appointment with doctor this morning.

Going in a short while.

I think I'm getting better but most of the time I still stay in bed.

I'm writing this lying on my chest in bed, actually.

After seeing the doctor, I'll be joining my father at the family house.

My mother is not around. She's busy as usual. Miss her much.

No serious thoughts for today. Just want to take it easy.

I better get up now.

Need to put on a happy Raya face later for my father.

Otherwise, the old man would be sad and starts pestering me to be happy.

Always got on my nerves whenever he does that.

Okay, here's a song for Raya,

That's nice, isn't it?

Sorry ya. I don't really like the usual Raya songs.

They played them too much at shopping malls.

Whatever it is, cheers for your Raya, okay.

  2. Annie,

    //Even on Raya day, I think.//

    You can count on it being business as usual :)

    //I will just be doing the usual obligatory rituals of wearing the baju Raya/

    Post pics :)


    //I hope you all enjoy your Raya very much instead.//

    Not sure what I'll do yet myself - I am still nowhere near my kampung!! Too lazy to travel.

    I may probably do a few open houses around my area and these will all be *ahem* Amanah open houses - community events lah.

    Sadly, not too many Melayu friends to visit around my kampung.

    I would rather not put them through the stress of having to entertain a non-Muslim during Hari Raya.

    But I might go into KL and visit an UMNO-voting family - we have been friends for a very long time and we don't really care what anybody says about our friendship.

    No invitation needed, I just ring and say I am turning up.

    Ironic, isn't it?

    I don't visit Amanah and PKR friends but I will visit an UMNO friend :)

    //For today, I still have an appointment with doctor this morning.//

    By the time you read this, I guess you would have already seen the doctor.

    I hope it was not one of those half-naked doctors who wave chicken feathers while dancing around you, chanting strange words.

    Assuming you saw a real doctor, I hope you are getting some answers into the puzzle as to why you seem so prone to problems.

    Typically, you should be getting several different tests and scans being done on you, eg blood and urine tests, heart and lung tests, Xrays, CAT scans, MRI scans, CT scans, etc.

    I may sound like I know what I am talking about but I am no doctor so pls feel free to ignore my pseudo-medical babble :)

    I do, however, know that females tend to have more tests done because they have more "bits" to worry about :)

    Make sure that whatever medication you are given is for a specific reason and if you are not getting results, ask for a review of that medication or the suspected cause.

    Doctors, even chicken feather waving ones, are just human and can misdiagnose ailments despite all those tests and scans.

    Hope all went well for you at the doctor's.

    Selamat Hari Raya Annie. Maaf lahur batin.

  7. Annie,

    As bit late but it's officially Hari Raya as technically it was not Hari Raya when I posted last - no announcement then PLUS my friend, Mohamad, had not sighted the moon himself.

    Selamat Hari Raya to you and all the readers on your blog.
