Dah puas makan dah? Tengah escape family gathering la tu to read blogs. Or reading them with cousins ramai-ramai.
Teehee : ) Kita lain tapi serupa. Serupa tapi lain.
No, I'm not excited about today. No sensible adults are (chewah). And it doesn't help knowing that this raya is going to be my last year as an eligible duit raya receiver. Danggg.
Looking back, I noticed how the television plays a big part in raya. A decade ago, there weren't many raya specials and the only shows I looked forward to were magic and circus shows. I'm planning to restrain myself from over indulging the idiot box today. I think the fact that there will be a lot of raya specials featuring Akademi Fantasia celebrities is enough to take my attention off the television. Yes yes, I dislike AF and the subliminal message that it propagates.
I should pay more attention to actual people, not Mawi (he eh, dah tembam la Mawi, biasalah jutawan segera) or Nabil (kelakar la bekas despatch ni, dia tak cukup makan la kurus sangat!) We all should do the same. After reruns of Rashid Sibir's tear inducing flicks, we should follow through the spirit of raya and mourn the death of the Emak or Ibu character? Mentaliti Melayu. Cerita sedih mesti mak mati. I can find a dozen raya themes that can make people cry without killing the headstrong mother.
It's only human to expect the worst. The joy of raya will catch on, eventually.
