maktuk woke up early as usual,
she know its the eid adha morning so its
even more earlier then the usual.
no breakfast is needed this morning,
everyone have to eat after the eid prayer.
ohh.. all the cucu and cicit woke up already.
What a fine morning today is...
A God blessed morning without the heavy rains
that have been washing away any desire to go
out and about, leaving us poor soul wrapped in
our blanket to sleep ...even further to the land
of dreams :D
'haaa hampa jangan dok ralit, semayang raya
haji ni kena awai! satgi hampa telepaih aku tak tau!'
(Jangan leka lagi, kena awal.. jangan terlepas)
..and the cucu which is us, took our bath from
that ridiculously cold kolah of us and put on our
last year baju raya, hey hey, still looks good on
my so why not? :D
its 745... we're still looking for the butang baju.
some of us still brushing our songkok,
'maktuk ada tali dak?' asked the cucu that doesnt
know his way around sampin.
Oh it was hectic, the ladies are preparing their
sarapan and all of us couldnt even touch that
lovely ketupat maktuk was preparing from last night.
'cepat cepat! hampa lambat dah ni! ni sedekah kat masjid na..
nazar aku ni. jangan kat masjid lain pulak.. kat masjid guaq tau!..
sorang lima ringgit, balik satgi beli aih'
(Cepat! dah lewat ni. Korang sedekah utk maktuk ya,
nazar nii. Beli ais balik nanti)
This is a trick pocketeers!!
all she wanted to do was to make sure that the cucu
went to the masjid and not to other place boys could
go to, cause she know.. when it come to nazar...
most of us muslim take it seriously.
its about second to a dying wish.
all the boys went out finally,
'hampa dok kata pompuan mekap lambat,
hampa pun serupa jugak' was what i can hear
her last mumbling by the door. She went back
to the kitchen to prepare the garnishing on the
mee goreng and to pour in the rendang for the
ketupat. she know, those boys will be hungry
as soon as they reaches home with the ice for
The boys are back..
'awai nya hampa balik? dan semayang dak tadi?'
(Awalnya balik? sempat tak tadi?)
'daaaaannnnn... kami punya la awai tadi maktuk,
khutbah pun tak start lagi.'
'hummmm... tau dah, hampa tak pi dah la tu..'
'eh.. mana maktuk tau?'
pocket pun heran,
camana maktuk tau yer?
