We were about to settle for the raya spread with him and his family, when another group of a long lost second cousins arrived. That also, I knew before hand when my aunt-by-marriage, called me on hari raya eve. But she did not mention about her daughter, who now resides in Singapore, was to come too. I was moved by their visit. All three of them (my second cousins) came with their mum, minus the youngest who stayed put in Kertih due to her husband's commitment with work there...well, orang minyak ler katakan. I spent a lot of my growing up times with them and my favourite uncle, now deceased. When I joked with my cousin, Wan Suraya, about putting up at her place if I were to go to Singapore, she earnestly said, '..with you, kak Lili, you needn't have to ask. All you need to do is come. mi casa su casa...' Hahahaha! My quick retort was, ' ahh, should have visited you when you were working in Brussels before...!' Ummm....kasi betis nak peha, no?!
And then, the whole day saw more relatives dropping in.
Sadly, between entertaining my guests, and cooking lunch for my elder brother's family *sigh...*,
I forgot to take pictures of my cousins. Too bad...not only that, all the food that I cooked for the raya spread was neglected because, you can imagine, how busy I was. I thought the other family members would take some photos of the rendang tok and lemang and lontong etc..etc.., but no... :'(
Okay...how about some photos of ME! hahahaa)))
