Alhamdulillah, the hard phase in life was gone. To be honest, mummy's morning whatsapp and Skype, that made me happy again. It was like she knew I wrote something and she happened to read my blog (hi Ummi! hee) and immediately went into mother-daughter conversation about our recent life. I miss my family, again and again.
Do you know how excited I am about having them coming over this July? I know it might be hard for all 8+1 of us because July is Ramadhan and we might have to puasa for 18 hours some more. As much as I don't want to burden them with this long day of fasting, I want to have everyone here with me on my graduation. Simply because I want them to see other places, ride their first flight (yes, adik2 never ride an aeroplane yet, never) and have some abroad exciting moments that I had before :)
I have a big family. Baba and Ummi worked really hard to give us a big house just when they were both 36 years old. Ummi never really fancy expensive things and she really appreciates even the simplest and cheapest things while spending her money on her children who grew up learning brand names and eventually wanting them coz their friends have it (hi, it was me -.-). Back then, all I knew was I wanted a lot of money so I can get the same stuffs that my friends have. Thanks Ummi, for satisfying my needs. and Baba, I know whatever happens, he'll always give anything and everything to his babies. Like when I said, "I need a room makeover. Only if I have a lot of money....." then Baba immediately, "let's do this. Let's buy the paint and furnitures, as long as you're happy". To think back about those time, I feel guilty for making him spend unexpectedly a lot of money to make me happy. He even went to pick me up from work to buy some wall paints together during lunch time. aaaa, Baba is sho shweeet. My number one lover :)
To list their sacrifices, I just couldn't make time cause it's too much! They have done almost everything that I might cry again if I write some more :p for almost 23 years old, Baba and Ummi have become a big part of my life and they will always be the first I'll turn to when I had difficulties. So in return, I would like to do something for both of them because I am happy. I don't want to just wanting them when I'm sad but now, when I'm happy, when I become successful, I want them to be right here with me. (Ummi, if you read this, jangan nangis eh. hihi). I'd like to treat them something special one day. InsyaAllah :)
I know I won't be saying this when they are right in front of me cause I am shy like that, but I know, they know I love them and I love to see the love between 8 of us that has gone deeper and deeper by days. Although I couldn't be home to see everyone, but having them getting silly over whatsapp is enough for me (despite the non-stop buzzing, pfft).
For my sisters and brother, I know I made them jealous a lil bit too much that I will make them happier instead. hehe. Siblings, I love you all for cheering up my life :) Let's all have our first plane ride together soon, okay! Save some of your money, we're gonna go have fun! :)
and for my 8 years bestfriend who is growing old well with me, thank you for becoming my 'family' when I am far from my family. Although we are far as well, I appreciate your effort to come and visit me every year just to make me happy. Cause you just knew it, I can't live without my family and....you. Like you said, coz I am manja a lil bit too much :p hiks. From an innocent boy to a very manly you, thank you for being there for me when I needed my family the most :)
To me, they are my motivations to live a happy life. InsyaAllah.
p/s: Super exciting trips are coming in near months. France, Amsterdam, Istanbul and InsyaAllah, Russia (finally, hee!)
