Saya akan ke Ipoh petang ini untuk menghadiri Majlis Perayaan Jubli Emas STAR Ipoh yang akan berlangsung esok.
Semalam saya hadiahkan sebuah kepada saudara Zulkifli dari kumpulan muzik Dewangga Sakti, kerana sudah berniat untuk berkongsi kegembiraan membaca buku ini dengan rakan ulat buku saya ini!
Kalau ditanya kenapa saya berbuat demikian ( saya cukup kedekut untuk beri buku koleksi peribadi pada orang lain), saya bukan mahu menunjuk-nunjuk, tetapi mahu berkongsi kegembiraan saya membaca buku ini!
Ambillah peluang untuk beli buku ini nanti pada harga RM26.00 di pasaran. Saya dengar khabar dari Prof. Muhd Kamil, buku ini sudah hampir kosong di stor PTS dan saudara Zulkifli dan saya sendiri sudah puas mencarinya di kedai buku namun tidak berjumpa.

Whatever served on the table during 1st Raya up to 7th Raya gone ‘licin’ at the end of the day. Rendang is quite good this year.
Finished most of the books brought back for Raya while devouring “Asian Food Channel” on Astro. It’s channel 703. Write it down please.
Managed to spoil some people’s Raya mood with Exclusive-Raya-SMS wishes from me and “Fasha Sandha”.
Most of the family members and in laws gathered at our place – except one ( can’t do much about both of them– it’s best to let them live in their own cocoon).
Managed to do “Fitrah Kasih” for my mom with her long lost friend. Interesting enough she happened to be the mother to a blogger friend. What a small world!
Strangely, funny things do happened. A neighbour of mine who kinda forgets his ‘roots’ after he got married and a decent job, suddenly turned up in front of my house after all these years. Very pelik but it’s raya, and being a good host, I left my “bergedel” to my sister and welcomed him in. After much customary how-many-kids and how’s-your-mom thingy, things got very clear when he suddenly asked me the questions.
“Eh, kau pakai kereta apa sekarang?”
(What??? You came to my house after all these years and this is what you wanted to know?)
Ah! No surprise now. He is still the same old him.

It's kind of my routine ( to avoid nosy relatives and visitors) to snuggle myself with books during Raya. Apart from interesting Peter Walsh's It's All too Much, I am bringing back Peter Han's Nobodies to Somebodies and Britannica's Iran.

"Don't worry, the government will sponsor the face change surgery if they come forward to testify" said this politician.
" And we will protect them under Witness Protection Program", he added.

"Bawak balik mixer.nak buat choc moist cake". Got this SMS from my eldest sister in Seremban.
"Mixer mana?Nak buat kuih balik raya ni". Came another one from my younger sister in Bangi.
Tempting to reply them,
"Beli la mixer sendiri beb!".
Of course the reply from me is very PR one so that they won't remember at all to ask for 'duit raya' for their kids.
