I got to meet many of my childhood cousins. I met Jamaliah Abdul Aziz, Dora Dee Aziz, Azhar anak Mak Nya. I met Kak Rahimah Fatimah Atan anak Mak Sarah, Musa anak Mak Ainon/Pak Abas. Musa told me about sarees from Calcutta. I saw someone who resembled Shawal Sha MoZa with some kids, but I didn't hv time to meet him. I didn't have much time to sit down and eat properly because I wanted to meet my saudara-mara. I just gobbled my food. My siblings already returned by the time we arrived at the masjid.
Affandi said he didn't know the route 'from the other side'. The roads and signboards were unfamiliar. We were in unfamiliar territory, but we tried hard to 'find' our way to masjid. WAZE was lousy - boleh masuk sungai! I just told my son to look out for 'Pinggiran Templer, Pinggiran Templer, Pinggiran Templer ..,' but we never saw that signboard. There was some other Templer signboards. We didn't know whether to turn right or left!
Then I remembered a masjid up on a hill where little boys and girls attended agama class. Then we knew the route to masjid. That was how we got to Dibah's wedding reception at the masjid, but very late.
