1st day of raya morning was how it had always been:
the men goes to the mosque while my mother and i prepare the food and lay out the table.
after eating, we take pictures and then we salam salam, ask for forgiveness and thank for everything.
Arief looked messy and unkempt that day and it was really annoying my mama. she kept on pestering my brothers to take him to a barber and get his hair cut, but in the end, tak dapat pun. we were so busy going around beraya at relatives' houses in KL area, in the end my brothers tak sempat bawak dia potong rambut.
on the way to Muar that afternoon, mama said "Arief, you're so belacan la!"
Arief is not so good in Malay see. so he asked "What is belacan?"
"SHRIMP PASTE!!" answered mama.
it sounded funny when it's translated in english kan?
Have a good Raya everyone!
