Ramadan @ Lehigh Valley


I miss "bubur masjid" (porridge prepared by volunteers at the mosque), the Ramadan bazaar and all those delicious kuih-muih (cakes)! I miss Emak's cooking and praying Terawih at Al-Falah mosque...
But I'm also enjoying Ramadan with my Bethlehem family (Philip & Kak Alo), as well as my Muslim friends in Lehigh Valley. As Eid approaches, P. Ramlee's Dendang Perantau echoes in my mind and brings tears to my eyes...

Di hari raya
Terkenang daku kepada si dia
Kampungku indah nun jauh di sana
Ayah serta bondaku

Di tepian mandi
Danauku hijau yang aman damai selalu
Nun di sanalah tempat aku bertemu
Aku dan dia


Ramadan Mubarak. Maaf zahir batin.
