12th August [the 5th day of Eid] ~ Eid is celebrated by visiting friends and relatives and therefore, Eid reunites people - new and old, near and far. Today, another old friend from college, who has travelled all the way from Virginia USA for the celebration, came visiting. Puan Khairul Bariah Mansor was here with her daughter, Alisha. The last time she was at my house was like 14 years ago, a very long time indeed even she herself could not even remember it.:)
Right after that, we went to another friend's house which is located nearby. Puan Suhana Abdul Jamal and her family members were already waiting and her mom had already cooked special dishes for the special occasion. We have known each other for a long time already that we are now family friends. Puan Suhana is teaching and residing in Sungai Petani, Kedah and she was here at her parents' place for the annual Eid get-together.
Unfortunately, all good thing must come to an end. The short meeting was adjourned to an unknown date in the future. I will have to wait for another year or more for another reunion like this, with at least one of them, to happen.
"So long the memories of a good friend
stays in my heart, I shall say
life is good."
