We made a sweet, meaningful and extremely brief journey down south yesterday.
Arrived Singapore in the wee hours of Saturday morning @ 3 am and back home at 3 am this morning.
Our aunt, Mak Ngah (Arwah my mom’s elder sister) is very ill in NUS right now.
Upon that brief phone call from Spore, my betterhalf and me decided to just pack and go.
Going back to Singapore has always been something to look forward to. The joy to be around our beloved saudara-mara is a joy beyond words.
‘The gift’ of being in Spore everytime is definitely the opportunity to meet up with all the aunts, uncles and cousins yang sungguh ramai itu. It is heavenly.
They are ‘the gift’ that Allah spares me in this life. They are my saudara-mara by relationship (they are hubby’s relatives), but Singapore has always feels more than home 🙂
They welcomes me into their lives and homes with a bigggg heart and in return, to me they are all my saudara-mara by blood!
To Mak Ngah and anak-anak, kami doakan jika Mak Ngah kami sakit, temukanlah ubat dan penawarnya. Sembuhkan Ya Allah. Dan jika ajal yang menjengah, ampunkanlah segala dosa Mak Ngah. Dosa kami, Ya Allah. Sesungguhnya, Engkau Maha Pengampun, Maha Penyayang 😦
Di kesempatan yang sungguh pendek itu, dengan izin Allah, I bring back another gift from Singapore. A new year gift perhaps? Alhamdulillah.
Thank you for everything! Semoga bertemu lagi!
