I wrote this entry after a black out in my residential area which is quite common. while i was lying around in the dark i had pretty much nothing to do except thinking to myself and playing around with my mobile phone.
I toggled through my contacts number. i've suddenly realised something which is quite amazing really. the number of contacts that i had mostly is my family numbers and ex-colleagues at work. but not much of friends. hmm. i wonder do i really have any. i can name a few but that's all. a few. i've never been a social kind of person. i spend most of time at home. being a young father also made me more homely. the fact that i am living and staying in baling also limits my ability to go out and meet up with my friends as mostly they are staying in KL or other places.

Decoration with lights
Some of the fireworks
The next day, it's Hari Raya! Everyone is up early. Take their baths and put on their brand new Baju Melayu. I took my mother, Aiman and Danial for Hari Raya Prayers. After that we went to visit my father and my sisters' grave in Mahmoodiah Cemetery. It's been quite a while since i have visited the grave. I sometimes wished that i had lived nearer so that i can visit their grave more often. Then we all gather and ask for each other hands and for forgiveness. Aiman is excited because after we 'salam' it would follow with a gift of 'Duit Raya" (equivalent of angpow in Chinese New Year), he wanted to collect lots of it due a certain Batmobile that he wanted to buy. That afternoon we went to my eldest sister house and han lunch there. unfortunately Danial managed to break one of her mirror in the house. That reminds me that i still owe her a mirror.
