after spending raya at kg. lalang and ipoh, it was time to head on to kuala lumpur to spend the rest of our raya, and our final days in malaysia before flying back to dubai! sob sob.
well, my mom has two other sisters. i call them auntyna, and the youngest one, cik. my hari raya continued at auntyna’s home in kl. it was a great, wonderful reunion with all my cousins. they’re bright, beautiful (noisy) people and i’m proud to call them family!
from left : nadhirah, rini, yaya, me & wanie – cousins from 3 different moms who are sisters!
my eldest sis yong was still in ipoh beraya, syima went beraya on her husband’s side after coming back from ipoh, while syida had already started working. so anak mak was only me and my youngest sister azot who’s still on a break from work.

my beloved aunts : cik & auntyna
these are my aunts. my mak’s sisters. i owe them a lot especially during the few years after mak passed away. this house was the very house i brought mr. khairul for the first time to meet my family, and especially abah!
love you lots, auntyna and cik! *big hug!*
