my eldest brother..

..my eldest brother is 72 years old, infirmed, widowed and as from two months ago emplaced in an old folks home in Pengkalan Chepa...and pakmat tries to visit him  at least once a week...some kind souls, cousins and relatives would credit into my account monies, token sums, mostly, and pakmat controls the flow to him...ensuring him that he is sufficient and not left wanting...he once told me that it is humbling when you are broke...and watched with downcast eyes as others buy 'nasi berlauk' and 'kerabu' for breakfast...and  I said, yes, I know the feeling...


...sometimes as we banter and joke around that concrete table under a wizened tree, I could not help but see in him me...life has not been too good for him..now frail and aging he is very much alone...he is homeless and penniless...oft times when we met, I rebuked him his past mistakes and foolishness...and oft times we just laughed together....not much can be salvaged from a receding past...but there were tears in his eyes as he guffawed showing a single tooth from shining gums...but the Lord knows best...and may his end be with iman...

salam pak mat,

Alhamdulillah i finally know that you're Tok Jie's son.For your information,I am your mother's neighbour.My house is located behind yours.Im still remember Tok Jie stayed with his grandson,Eddie Putra Shar bin Adnan.Still fresh in my mind when Tok Jie leave us...That time i still in primary school.So many memories that i kept in my mind...Tok Jie was like my grandmother...She always treat me as her grandson..May Allah bless her forever...

Im the elder son of rashid,if you still remember my father.We leave the house after Tok Jie passed away.

Now,My family moved to PCB..But 833,jalan gajah mati is still wrote in my ic..
