"When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses." [Joyce Brothers]
Few pictures from the event 'Bowling with my family' on the 3rd of Syawal. People are often surprised and sometimes amazed when they found out about my family. Why? Because I have seven brothers and only one sister (my mum used to breastfeed her when she was small).
One day, when we are still living in Kedah, about 14 years ago, our neighbor called my eldest brother by his name,
Uncle A: Khalid, don't forget to come to my son's birthday party next week.
My brother: uncle, how do you know my name?Uncle A: Your father shouted your name every morning to wake you guys up. How can I not know and remember your name.
But now, we only have the chance to get together during holidays since most of us are still studying in various places (3 in IIU, 1 in IB, 3 in M3, Perlis). As for my eldest brother, he is getting married this weekend and my second brother's wedding will be in December, Insya Alah. Hope the family bond will grow stronger with the addition of new family members.
"Building strong family relationships is difficult in a society where the family structure seems to be deteriorating.Until we can hear each other, we cannot build strong relationships. To build strong family relationships, please listen actively to each other."
