It’s my routine to listen to the radio while doing my jobs, assignments, reports, even when I’m sleeping. But there’s something different tonight whilst I’m drawing histological pictures for Anatomy report. I’m listening to Lagu Raya!
I whispered to myself, “owh... lagu raya dah keluar kat radio”. Then I looked at the radio, five past 12 already, which means it’s already 15th day of the Ramadhan.
I can’t stand when the lyrics said “Hamba musafir di Aidilfitri... Oh Tuhan yang Maha Kaya, hamba menangis di pagi raya” and this quickly brings me to think about my fellow friends who are in the oversea, completing their studies. I don’t know how it feels when I don’t celebrate Hari Raya with family because so far I am never apart from them during first day of the beautiful day. Oit Malaysian students in the oversea, how you feel uh?
Apart from that, it’s another year to celebrate my birthday in Ramadhan. Last year was a boring one where I just belanja few of my friends burgers and drinks after terawih, they said thank you and wished me happy birthday, ate the foods and that’s it. Nothing really special about last year’s birthday anniversary which i think i supposed to be one because it's for 20th of my life!
Yet, I still don’t know what to do to make this year’s 11th of October a special and memorable one. And still until now I never had a super-duper-bombastic-fantastic-romantic birthday celebration like what I used to watch in the TV. Do I have to get till 50, only then some closed people around me will make it, like what my father had last August? (tapi tak bagitahu terang-terang nak buat celebration besar-besaran. Sudahnya aku tak balik untuk sambut sama-sama padahal ramai saudara-mara datang. Sentap tak?) Owh... why must I confess this here?
Maybe next year will be a special one, where the 11th of October falls on Syawal month. But I don’t have Hijr calendar to check this. Hm~ Ok la... Stop dreaming! Baca buku lagi baik... Final exams are just around the corner, and yet still few assignments and chapters to go through.
