Post Raya Short Story
Gosh…It has been so long since I wrote a blog post in Cyza Sector. We have I been?
Well, I’m still here. Maybe it was because of the Raya mood which has conquered the feeling, mood and emotion. I have started working one a nice Friday, 1 week after Hari Raya. The festive momentum is still there but accumulating work load is patiently waiting for me in the office and laboratory.
Celebration with my family
I returned back to Johor Bahru from Kuantan on the 3rd Raya (Sunday) and stayed with my folks until Wednesday before settling down at our own home sweet home. Raya with my family is simple but happening. All were there accept my little sister who spent few days in London and Nottingham, UK.
The sad thing about celebrating raya in Johor Bahru is we don’t have any relatives at all. So, the next day (Monday) all of us gathered, we visited some of our closest family friends. Those were among the people that we grew older together. Those are my father’s and my mother’s colleagues. I was a friend with their kids as well and we witness each others progress in life. We now have our own kids. We played together when we were small and now after 10 to 20 years, we meet up again and share the old sweet memories…haha…
Celebration with JB bloggers
Excitingly, this year is the first year I celebrated Raya with other bloggers + their families. Since we are quite close with each other, thanks to the special online blogging web 2.0 bond (almost as strong like the covalent bond, not James Bond), we took the opportunity to visit whomever we can. The first blogger that me and my family visited was Nuaeman and family. It was my first time visiting him at his inlaw’s house. I felt sad and pity that his older sister had just passed away. Then he made a return visit.
A few days after that, last Saturday, we visited Rohaizad. Initially I thought, Boss and Zamrin will be coming too, however due to some unavoidable circumstances, they could not come. So, it was just me and my family at Rohaizad’s house. After that, we visited Boy Bersahaje… at his huge mansion. It’s good to see how great Boy’s family is doing with their business.
Not to waste any time and to avoid difficulty to find other opportunities, I invited all of them to my house. So, within few minutes, Rohaizad, Boy Bersahaje, Boss and Zamrin were gathering in my house….hehe…this was the first time a bunch of successful bloggers came to my place. Of course, the atmosphere is so exciting, especially with the loud vocal of our ProBlogger Sifu, Ijad lah…who else…
Back to work
This is one of the most toughest moment. It was not easy but it is something that everybody need to do. Yes…now I’m back at work and to be honest, I’m sleepy now. I hope this Post Raya Short Story entry will get back by motivation to continue work and blogging…
What about you?
