Me, Myself and a girl named .....

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
She sits alone in a smoke filled cafe. Watching as the world goes by.. She has the looks that tell the truths when she lies. She says she's all your dreams are made of..and everything that you'll never understand... And since you're lost, perhaps you can step inside and stay a while.."Welcome to the 100% Satisfaction Eh?!".

Eh, Raya mode is everywhere


I can't believe I was thinking to stay in KL to work and miss all the Hari Raya fun this year. Actually, I can't believe how much I missed out on Raya (Eid)! The preparations, the jalan raya with friends (convoy perhaps), the visiting relatives, the gossipping (or more politely known as catching up), etc..

So much fun!

Truly I had never enjoyed celebrating Raya. Was it because of I had not much friends to visit back in hometown? Or the reason could be, among all of us (the siblings) I was the only one who seldom/rarely come back hometown. Don't blame me, 13 yrs spent outside of home, no wonder they didn't know that my mum had another daughter, which is me?!)

But the sad thing was that those years I've missed out on this "family gatherings" people tend to forget faces they don't see often. I've been asked numerous times who I was.
And it doesn't help that I didn't grow up there (where the rest of my family is). So I don't socialize with these few ppl much. Oh well, u lose some, u gain some..

So this weekend, we will start to celebrate Hari Raya. I hope to see ppl I haven't seen in ages! And hopefully, I'll get back and share some silly story here and there..
