Buying Ding Dang chocolate the other day reminded me of my primary school days when I used to buy a whole lot of junk food like Choki Choki, keropok bantal and that long-ish looking ais-krim panjang. Some memories will remain with you for a very, very long time.
I waited and waited and waited for God.

Hari Raya was Hari Raya because I did everything (almost) that was Hari Raya-ish: Visited my neighbour, visited Diana, ate ketupat, ate rendang, ate ayam masak merah, ate kacang curry, ate chicken curry, ate nasi kuning, ate Raya cookies, salam-ed people and children.

Sometimes a small change in your daily routine can be so refreshing-like playing Boggle with the mother, sister, brother-in-law and friend until almost 1.00am.
Your little brother or sister would say 'eeyer' if someone gave him a free Nescafe bag. An orang Asli kid said 'wah' when he got a free Nescafe bag (which is a pretty nice bag, ok).
An author wrote, "God did not haphazardly or accidentally let Joseph's brothers throw him in the pit. He had already thought it out in advance. Considered it. Weighed it. Checked it against the plumb line of the plan. He had looked at the good it could ultimately accomplish, the lives that could be helped and even saved. Then, only then, in His sovereign purpose did He permit such harm to come to His beloved child.
