Saturday, September 13


So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief;
Verily, with every difficulty there is relief.
Therefore, when you are free, still labour hard,
And to your Lord turn all your attention.
(surah al-Inshirah 94:5-8)
my oh my.
I have problems remembering that in my land:
2008 is not just any year,
5 is not just the number of fingers of your right hand,
916 is not just the preferred grade for gold jewellery,
ISA is not just the name of a man,
sodo-mee is not just a brand of instant noodle,
lalang is not just the name of a type of grass,
Yet most importantly,
I remember that
Ramadhan is not just about going without food and drinks.
my oh my,
I still have things to learn and relearn.
my oh my.
