Via East-West Highway

Last Aidilfitri, Kamal and I ventured through a new route to go to Rembau, Negeri Sembilan from Ketereh, Kelantan. The Second East-West Highway mesmerised us, hence a consideration to use the route once more this Aidilfitri. Unfortunately, that Syawal 3, there was an endless queue of vehicles along the road that led to Gua Musang.

Mister Husband, the one behind the steering wheel then, decided to use the East-West Highway instead. It did take Kamal, Khalish, and I extra seven hours to reach Bandar Baru Bangi, yet, we were grateful to not have to endure the extra eleven hours experienced by those who chose other routes.

We loved the view throughout the journey. The raw quality. The memories it brought to Kamal and I. The hope for Khalish to create his own memories.

Kami, Melawi

Pantai Melawi 13

The second the nieces shared their wish to be photographed on the beach, I found myself in seventh heaven. I always love the beach, the camera, and the nieces, enough said. So, Syawal 2 was agreed upon as the day to be out and about. Kamal and Khalish were to tag along, of course. Yes, the whole family always cherishes the sand and the sea.

Came Monday, guests thronged my parents-in-laws' place though. So delighted the whole household was to welcome the guests that none of us realised the time. The nieces, Kamal, Khalish, and I only left Ketereh at 5:00 p.m. Because of traffic congestion, we greeted Pantai Melawi half an hour too late for the best natural light. 

Still, what lay in front of us was a wondrous sight. Kamal and Khalish immediately raced toward the ocean. The nieces were just being themselves in front of my lens. In the end, the five of us wished for such an evening to be an annual affair.

Spirit of Syawal Lingers


Bunut Satut

Syawal 1433H will bid farewell this Sunday. As life becomes more hectic, it suggests a saunter along Memory Street. Consequently, it leads to the first week of the month. 

Ah, Aidilfitri in Kelantan.The warm welcome. The delectable cuisine. The lush landscape. Most memorable of all, of course, was the amiable company of the loved ones.
