hari raya lagi lima hari...will be busy with the usual preparation like previous hari rayas ..the menu, the house, the cookies, the kerepeks....the whole thing.
when i was way younger...well...when Mak was still around, during hari raya season, mak will be busy with the many orders of baju raya of her clients. she was a tailor. so, busy la with the orders. must complete before hari raya. normal la tu.
we dont go for baju raya shopping like kids these days. those days, do not understand the concept of raya shopping. what's that? mak is busy with orders....kakak and kak chik busy with their own stuff. abang too and ayub...well...kecik sangat lagi masa tu. bapak?...hmmmmm...dont see him much at home anyway. must have been a busy too.
raya season, mak would be working till late at night.
esok nk raya, mak was still at the shop. no rendang, no baju raya, nothing. tak raya ke esok kita ni? or kita beraya rumah jiran? tak pe la....yang penting round kampung with friends. boleh minum air sirap, makan kek, biskut raya. kalau nasib baik, dapat duit raya....hmmmmm......niceeeee, so excited about raya with friends esok.
aarrgghh...tidor la! esok nak raya, eeee.....seronoknyer......cepat tidor, cepat sikit sampai esok...
pagi raya...bangun, tenyeh-tenyeh mata....cari Mak.
"Tu kat terusi", Mak was addressing me while focusing on her cooking.
so off i went to the 'kerusi' and there i saw a new dress for me...pastel flowery dress for raya....with a matching panties.. hehehehe....I was a happy girl....yup, so easy to please me.
mothers are super woman kan? wonder woman, power rangers, who else yg power....?
i dont think Mak slept that nite...coz breakfast was lemang and rendang...
