Mak

Received a call this morning from my brother. Mak wants to know if I am coming over today. For the umpteenth time, Mak calls and asked if I can drop by for a bite. If I can then she will prepare something for me. And for the umpteenth time I am unable to come. I feel bad, really bad. Pity the poor old lady, pining for the company of a son who is so near yet so far. I now know how that feels but situation dictates that her heart be broken again.

I am at fault. Yes, and I will remedy this.

Similar situation here.
Kekadang aku pun tak tau apa sangat yang aku sibukkan. Bila aku tak sibuk, mak pulak yang ada hal.

The same goes to me, errr ..... not be able to see them sometimes because of things. But, my 2 kupang (to me and all), do the best for them sementara masih ada or, yes, at least, remedy them later on.

We as "orang bandar" have all sort of excuses like works la, anak tuisyen(no, I don't), dinner ni kenduri tu la, bla bla bla...

I know my pblm, I'm not close to my mom compare to my 2 brothers where they can talk 'til the cow comes home, especialy the youngest brother. don't no why, is there a tradition said that eldest have to be strict and serious all the time?!?!

But that doesn't mean I dun love her, I dun care about her...i must admit, there is a communication gap between us, we talk not more 10 words a day and if it is more than 10 words we are must be trying hard to dig some topics out to talk.

Can't even recall when was the last time i said "mom, love you" or I never said it before all this while?!?!

But that again doesn't mean that we don't love & care about each other...perhaps I should address this as "silent malaysian love" if that is right words to use

Deep in my heart I know I love my mom, I love my brothers and I love my family and it will never ever changed

I'm making the effort to make a 2D1N trip back to 'ganu this weekend for Cheng Beng Festival. Although it's a tiring trip, it should compensate with culture that can be seen and carry on by my kids in future and a happy face they get from their grandma

Any message for Ahmad Said?

Off the record: Last year I was really kena taruh'ed kao kao from my buddy malay frens for going back alone. That is a April Reminder that I'll never forget!
