Eidul-Adha, gathering, my mom & late father in law

Surprisingly, this year Hari Raya Eidul-Adha, my parents and my siblings, my brother and his family from Penang and my younger sister from Rawang came to my house. I got 7 sibling and I am the third.

Eidul-Adha is also know as Feast of the Sacrifice, a major festival celebrated by Muslim worldwide to to honour the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his young first-born son Ismail as an act of submission to Allah swt command and his son's acceptance to being sacrificed, before Allah swt intervened to provide Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead.

When we gathered together at the dining table, my father told us the old stories about his father, and other things that sometimes remind us how lucky we are sometimes in our life. The most heartily story is about my eldest brother who his life is not on his side. My father expressed his deep feeling that how bad his son turn to, end of the day he is still his son and his blood. I can see the sadness of my father through his eyes.

My eldest brother was wrongly brought up during his teenager time because he stayed with my grand parents and my father's sister. He got everything he wishes for. He was a smart student and he got 5 A's in his standard 5 "Penilaian" examination. Unfortunately my grand father passed away and my brother had changed and never changed. My dad said that my brother has to blame himself of not changing his lifestyle and attitude who always blaming other people of his 'unfortunate" life.

Alai Coconut Drink is Best of All....

The best coconut drink in Melaka. If you drive using old trunk road from Melaka town to Muar, if you are very thirsty under the hot sun while driving, have a pit stop at the Coconut Drink store at Alai, Kandang.  The store is located next to the road on the left after the traffic light at Persimpangan (Junction) Alai.

They have cold coconut drink, coconut shake and surprise, they provide "nasi lemak", a favorite Malaysian coconut milk rice with spicy anchovies "sambal" plus half boiled egg.

If you have a navigation device, here is the location code... N02 10.600 E102 18.450.

Life is about giving hope and pray ...


The life that we choose sometimes it hurt, turn out not what we expect.  What had gone wrong?  Did we make a wrong decision?
