Raya comes in in just another 5 days. well i’m also surprised, because this year, i feel that the time flies by too fast at the sound of lights. Yes really. Really-really fast. Have been fasting since kid but this year is a bit different. too fast too realize, and also, our family now didn’t buy any food outside because the surau ( mosque ) nearby everyday providing Porridge ( bubur lambuk ). Save money also.
So we decide to paint the guest area( ruang tamu.. tatau nak translate). We paint it a bit yellowish using Maxlite paint.
And clicking this link below will reaveal more pics and stories. click click.
After. that speaker + radio system has already at the age of 15++ because my father bought them when i was a kid. but what grab my attention today during painting at the garage is this bunch of kids.
( opss.. digital zoom. )
These kids collecting steel/iron/aluminum to sell at.. urm i dont know how to explain but here there’s some workshop accepting steel for a price. i’m sure they’re not sending the steel to the recycling center but herein ampang, my hometown, there lies some steel garage collecting this stuff.
So when they were carrying a bag of steel with paint tin inside and can drinks, my father approach them. then those kids show to us the steel their collecting and my father decide to give some also. we have some pots, cooking stove, and those motorcycle rim that already rusty. it’s from jehuty’s old rim. you can see the kid in red shirt also holding the motorcycle rear handler at the back for the passenger to grab on.
so since we gave them more steel, the kids have to make 2 trips going back and forth to send their steel collected. they manage to get RM40. quite okay la. this kids very hardworking, seeking for some extra money for this raya. at their age, i’m only play around with no efforts to seek pocket money. and right now maybe last 14 years back then, i was counting and assuming how much duit raya i’ll be getting. my parents however, at those kids age, seeking for firewoods in the forest and fishing for the food. well since they grow at paddy field village and rubber estate of course they have more thrilling adventure to seek.
ask yourself, at their age.. around standard 2.. what are you doing this time??
money for this raya, duit raya, i have to run before these kids asking me for duit raya.. miahahha.
5 days before raya. hohoho.
