Sentiasa bersamamu..

Satu perkara yang paling bermakna-sentiasa bersama..

Being together is very important as family members.I am very lucky that my wife is with me all along my working life.She is a full time house wife.Some of my friends live on their own with kids when their wives had to work/go further stduies some where else and vice versa.Many of us have to live away from our family because the duty calls or on special assignments.

Now,two of my sons got married and they live with their own families-wives and kids like the days when I was a young father.Thank God,I still have one last son for the moment.Not long,he will get married but I hope he lives with us.My wife and me always look forward to when my kids returning home with their familes  for lunch and dinner.When we have  our meals together,I feel very happy-just like the old time when my children were kids.Now,I knew why my Chinese friends have to be home for dinner during Chinese New Year.

Every month,I try my best to go back to my village and stay with my mother for a few days.I know how she feels when I return home-just like how my sons come back to my home.It is about being together again-Setiasa Bersamamu.

Eidul Fitri is less than a week away.InsyaAllah,my wife and son will go back to my village and enjoy our Eid with my mother and relatives in the kampung.This weekend is my mother's turn when her kids are coming home.

Only those who had to live apart will really appreciate the meaning of Sentiasa Bersamamu.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002

The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..

"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
