Our girl from Gedung Kuning


Our girl from Gedung Kuning, how she has grown!
... and how she never changed! Always busy, always getting involved...

Remember how she helped Mama (Hajah Maimoon, Nenek's sister-in-law) who had stroke and had difficulty walking? The 4 year old Cik Idah would walk behind Mama to steady her. She would also hand Mama the gayung (small pail) filled with water for Mama to bathe. Poor Mama who didn't have any daughters, was shy to ask her sons to bathe her (although Cik Hamid would help especially when her health deteriorated). But Mama's spirit was strong and she did her best to fight the raging stroke. Mama, may Allah bless your soul!

Ahh, those kind people who lived in Gedung Kuning. Cik Idah will always remember how they taught her to help others albeit in some small ways... http://www3.lehigh.edu/News/V2news_story.asp?iNewsID=2275
