A text message from Malaysia

Bismillah,

Okay this is a quick post as I'm currently writing my summer report.

I just received a text message from Malaysia. It was from my father. The text message sounded like this:
"Yun, dah dapat cari rumah sewa? Ika dah masuk KISAS hari Isnin hari tu. Kat rumah sunyi tak ada kawan. Nasib baik ada Pinky buat teman"
Translation for my non-Malay readers: "Yun (my nickname), have you manage to find any house? Ika (my sister) has registered herself to KISAS last Monday. The house now is silence, it's only me and your mom (okay ni tambahan, tak tahu nak buat ayat cmna dah untuk "sunyi tak ada kawan tu"). But we do have Pinky (my cat) to accompany us."
Owh, I'm so touched. Feel like crying now :')

That's what you will get when a father misses her daughter so much. *mata berkaca-kaca bak kata Amalina Peter* Eventhough it was a short simple text message but it was a meanigful one. =) Ingat senang ke bapak-bapak (terutama ayah saya) nak menggambarkan rasa rindu kat anak perempuan dia? 

When I miss my family terribly, I will sneak through my photo album. I once disappointed when I looked at this 2 pictures. The pictures were captured before my departure to Australia. Observe carefully:  




I was disappointed because at first, I don't understand why he did not smile. He didn't even looked at the camera. :( Yela, bila rindu keluarga di Malaysia dan tengok gambar balik tak senyum pulak, mana tak sedih. Keluarga orang lain senyum lebau je dalam gambar kt airport.

But now I understand. Deep down in his heart, he was sad to let me go. Takkan nak nangis pulak kan? *hiba lagi* I love you dad! I love you mom! In bahasa it sounds: saya sayang ibu dan ayah saya! :)

And I remember that years back, I once complained to him when we were dropping by my brother at Pudu bus station,
"I never had a chance to study far outside of Selangor since my primary school. I wonder when will I get a chance to ride this bus express" 
And his reply made me not to complain anymore after that.
"You don't need to ride a bus express. You will have a  flight to study far beyond the Selangor itself"
And now here I'm down under. Sabar ye ayah, 4 hari je lagi. :)
