so just now, as in before 12 midnight today..
amende aku nak cakap nih?
yesterday la senang cite. heeee =p
i was working as usual (on saturday?!?! gaassppp?! hahaha! noob korang. yes. anyway) but thankfully it wasn't a full day work. bosses knew my colleague and i were fasting so lepaskan awal. weee! oh, i had a meeting. that's why we were glad. haha!
anyway, after meeting tu, i straight away went to jusco au2 to join my family and friends on our yearly 'sponsor kanak2 kurang mampu for raya' activity. basically we just assign ourselves to a child and carikan baju raya, kasut raya, tudung raya, etc etc worth about a few hundreds.
these kids are from different schools around rawang, and they are chosen on basis of their family welfare. you probably can find them under Rumah Amal Budi Bistari, Rawang.
so i attached myself to this cute standard 6 girl named anisah =)
kesian dia, malu malu kucing ngan i. but biasa lah akak maria. lagi orang tu malu ngan akak, lagi akak suka sakat. akak suka tau uolls! haha!
so she warmed up with me, alhamdulillah, and so sweet when she was so concerned that whatever she chose would be above budget! always asking "mahal ke kak? cukup ke kak?" hehe! adik comel.
after the whole shopping thing, we went to felda villa in kl for iftar. so as we were all waiting for the azan, these kids memang nampak penat sampai ada tertido tido and most of them muka cam zombie. hehe! kesian..
masa tu la my aunty told me.. she said some of them memang ada family. have siblings and parents. but some don't know where their siblings are, and some hardly seen their parents.. they just stay in the asrama..
being a 10 year old kid. you know you have a family, but you have no idea where they are, how they are, who they are and what became of them.
and there i was. a 25 year old, i know where my brothers are, i know where my parents are, i know and i can see what they're doing, i can hold them, i can talk to them, they're there.
right in front of my eyes.
dulu i, as a kid, always lost my parents. but i know if i cry loud enough, they would come and get me. i used to get really high fever, and my mom would always care for me.
macam mana ngan diorang ni?
kalau diorang nangis, siapa yang datang? kalau diorang sakit, sape yang jaga? kalau diorang nak dimanja, siapa yang manjakan?
sebelum azan berkumandang, i doa sambil tahan air mata dari menitis.
“Sesungguhnya bagi orang yang berpuasa ketika saat berbuka ada doa yang tidak ditolak”.(HR Ibnu Majah)
in sha Allah.
lepas dah berbuka semua, kak maria pun buat lah apa kak maria terror buat. kak maria buat la adik2 ni gelak =)
contest muka buruk
contest muka buruk lagi
contest pose terbaik ngan air
contest pose minum
ni la anisah =)
all in all, it was a hopefully a great day for these kids =) they deserve to feel special and treated specially!
towards the end of the day, with duit raya in their hands, we bade them goodbye.
sambil peluk cium diorang, i bisikkan a few words to them. my heart felt like half boiled egg. partially solid, partially fluid. weird comparison, but oh well. you get the gist =p
may Allah bring me to more people who needs my TLC. =')
may Allah guide these kids to a bright future
may Allah bless those who read this and made doa for them
may Allah bless us all, in sha Allah with barakah and enlightenment =')
may we be better children to our parents and better sibling to our siblings too! =D
and selamat berpuasa!
