Raya was Lemanglicious!
I woke up around 8, went for the routine solat sunat aidilfitri, visited my grandfather's grave and beraya at Tok's house. I had lunch at with the whole troupe, during which my father being a pot filled with historical facts that he is, explained to us the etymology of the Ronggeng dance.
I picked up theStar newspaper and browsed through it and was saddened by the news of a horrendous car crash. Guess what else was on page N16?
Who would've thought that just above the strip of sad news is a mock raya celebration of us UIA students! The picture was taken a week before raya when I was still back in UIA. The photographer told us that our picture may or may not be shown during raya because it is really up to the editor so I wasn't expecting much. The photographer gave away all the props to me and I most humbly accepted them. Who in their right mind would not accept free lemang, satay, ketupat, rendang and a set of kueh raya? We had a feast that night, bludgeoning ourselves with food that weren't supposed to be served until Raya. It's like preparing for school only to find out that it's a school holiday.
Notice the spelling error? Afiq Dun. Hahaha. Dun. I wrote my name in cursive so they must have mistaken my ee for u. Or maybe Afiq Dun is more Sabahan than Afiq Deen. Maybe. But then it didn't matter because I, Afiq Dun, have a gift of laughing at myself silly.
My dimpled cheeks will also be in November edition of Fokus SPM for winning the recent short film competition. Next Stop?
