I know you are going to read my blog today. I hope you will enjoy your day and will get a very good rest. I'm not going to be around, so I'm sorry if I can't talk to you in other ways besides sending this message through my blog. I'm going to Putrajaya for a day and will be with my family. At this moment, I'm feeling so sleepy and I'm thinking of you. However, I can't talk to you. Hukhukhuk. How I wish you're contactable!
Please be safe and rest well. I hope you're not going to miss me as I'm celebrating one of the best days in my life. Today is a Satay Day. Almost five years ago, Satay Day was the day I held a bouquet of yellow lilies in my arms with a smile on my face. It is someone's else turn today and I'm excited!!!
I have a story to tell you as well:
Last Tuesday I met Bok. Which Bok? One of the Boks. We had a little conversation because I was not that keen to meet her. I wish I was having a conversation with you instead.
Bok: Kau dah tak kerja dekat situ lagi?
Bok: Habis tu?
Me: Saya nak belajar.
Bok: Hmmmmmphhh...(disgruntled face). Lawa baju kau ni. Baru beli?
Bok: Beli baju baru waktu macam ni?
Me: Oooo...yang ni adik saya belikan.
Bok: Ooooo...(her expression changed)
Me: Dia dah habis belajar. Sekarang dah kerja. Jadi, dia yang belikan baju untuk saya.
Bok: Oooo...Alaaa...dia kerja dengan ***** kan?
Me: Ya. Taklah glamour mana. Tapi Alhamdulillah.
Bok: Anak makcik pun kerja macam tu juga.
Me: Oh, dekat mana tu?
Bok: Free-lance...dia ramai customer.
Bok: Elok ke kerja dia tu? Dia dapat kerja tu sebab makcik kau tolong kan?
Me: Bolehlah. Sekarang dapatlah dia ambil alih tempat saya.
Bok: Cukup ke gaji dia?
Me: Cukup tak cukup dia banyak tolong kakak dia ni. Dapatlah baju baru. Alhamdulillah, dia tahu tanggungjawab. Dulu giliran saya, sekarang dia. Besok adik-adik kami pulak. Kami akan amik giliran untuk belajar. Oh ya. Makcik, minggu ni konvokesyen adik saya. Alhamdulillah...macam-macam orang kata, akhirnya dapat juga dia buktikan kejayaan dia.
You know something, sweetheart?
I gave her the sweetest smile I could give after I said that.
Bok left with unsatisfied face. She was not a fan of my brother. Let me just say that my brother had a very traumatic childhood because of her. He was a laughingstock of Bok, a subject of amusement and a topic for comparison. His achievements and success had never been acknowledged. That day, I made sure Bok swallowed her own saliva! She can do it to me, I'll keep quiet. But don't mess with my family!
Let me enjoy my day today. I hope you won't mind at all. I have kept some money to buy a bouquet of flowers and to celebrate the day with satay. He was the one who put the notes in ibu's hand for my graduation for the satay feast five years ago. He made sure that I slept with those beautiful lilies. Today I'm going to return the favour and I can't wait!
If I'm not visiting your blogs today, I am very sorry.
My brother has proven that he is totally amused with the mockery.
Today is his day.
I am extremely proud.
