COUNTING THE DAYS

Sofi has a new entry and a new song. I didn't realise till today that the song was about her longing to come home and she's counting the days!

Yes, Sofi is coming home first week of July, insyallah. 6th of July to be exact. She left Malaysia in September last year so it'll be approximately 10 mths when she comes back.

I can still remember the pain we felt the day she left. Ikelah wrote about it here. And I wrote her a farewell ode here. Her absence. Her empty room. Most of all, not having her around to ferry the other kids to school and fro. It was a profound feeling of lost. Melancholia filled the air then. Even the cats must have missed her badly. She has a way with them. Unlike me. Although I love cats, I am easily irritated when they disobey me.

So Sofi is coming back! And Sarah too! May they have a safe journey coming home. Most of all, may the 2 mths holidays be filled with Allah's grace and barakah, heal their homesickness and charge them up for another 10 months of living away from us! Not forgetting, good luck in their finals and may Allah ease them through all the papers with loads of 'piyat's!

p.s Want to sample a piece of song translated into Temerloh slang? Try this at Pang5's latest entry. Caution: unsuitable for those who are strong proponents for 'never butcher an original song's lyrics' slogon!!! hehe

By the time Sofi gets home, I'd be ready to wreck my nerves again by hitting the books. Uhh..rasa dah berkarat sangat dah otak cuti ni!

May both your daughters arrive safely, Ameen.

When Sofi comes back, will she still lock herself up in her room or will she be tagging along with mum, just like Siamese Twins???

My youngest son has this to say of his sister: "Kakak ni kalau balik rumah, suka jatuhkah hukuman penjara pada diri sendiri." ;))

If the time of the entry is right viz. @ 0106 hour. That's how much the mother misses her daughter.

Hehehehe it would be fun to see how their tastes foodwise have changed/developed over the past 1 or 2 years. Sauerkraut anyone? :D

Haha...Probably not. Running away from the textbooks is not really a good idea. Especially if the lecturers tend to ask questions T_T

For some reason, I can no longer hear Sofi's background songs on her blog. What is it? Kris Dayanti's Menghitung Hari..? hehe.
