Emak, my favourite resolution

Is there such a thing as a favourite resolution?  Who cares, I have one.  I made it one day when I was 19 and I’m proud to say that I’ve kept it to this day.

OK, enough of the build-up, so what was my resolution?  I resolved to start calling my mother ‘Emak’, that’s it.  My sisters and me used to call her Kak Rah, but that’s a story for another day.  Some of us, elder ones, still call her that.

Happy New Year!  Make a resolution that’s achievable, and significant.

      As I remember it, there were these 2 girls who were neighbours, older than us, who used to come round all the time to our house in Jalan Esa. I can’t remember their names. They used to call her that, then kita pun terikut2.

    So, bow are both your parents? Are they still in Kluang? My regards to them the next time you go home.

      Salam Rashid, my parents are fine, considering they’re close to 80. They’re in Kluang, but they come up to KL quite often.
      What about you? Your family? Your parents?
      I went to Arip Kasmo’s daughter’s wedding yesterday. Also met Omar (Malay medium), if u remember.

      We must catch up the next time you’re in KL, you know, while we’re still alive 😉
