Bekwoh Farewell PP

PP (centre) clad in red shirt suurounded by the loved ones.

It is so heart breaking learning more and more friends are leaving from this 'so-maha-mahal-land', some went back to Malaya for good, looking for better options or future. Some are expanding their horizons to other continents or neighbouring countries for better offers.

We could still remember the first time we were in Dubai, at first we felt so alienated, so foreign and bonded closely just among the five of us. No personal contacts here, the only one we knew was this couple Sedi and wife who happened to be a brother to my cousin's wife. Everything seeemed so new, back to square one. We knew that we need to make our own initiative to make acquaintances, to reach our Malaysians community here hence we went to our 1st Malaysians-get-together in Uptown Mirdif in Apr 2008- and the story our friendships begins.

Alhamdullillah, We reach out to offer our friendships by offering a potential friend caring, listening, talking, sharing, accepting, and affirming. It takes time though and effort to build the friendships. They are built slowly, slowly and slowly... we are comfortable with the small circle of our families here, giving and taking with much tolerence, really feel at home. To those who are close to our hearts will be very much missed when distance take charge. To those who have break our hearts, u are dearly missed too in a different way. ahaks! Lets forgive and forget.

The recent one, another good friend of ours and most people, will be leaving for a better home in a place near to the Holy city. Our Presidents of My UAE-Pro, Yang Berusaha Pak Payne is showered with a farewell bekwoh kenduri by everyone as a token of appreciation (hosted by Tn Hj FND and Sue in Ajman). This time the main dish 'gulai kawah' is cooked by the daddies, babahs and ayahs led by Pok Nik. Mommies and mamas 'santai-santai', potong-potong buah and kueh and cakes' jerrrr. As usual there are always plenty of mouth -watering Malaysian cuisines home-made by mommies. Mama really loves this kind of event - always satisfies my craving for traditional kuehs. ermmm anymore potluck events???
