Yati Comes a-Calling

On the fifth day of Aidilfitri (September 14th), my old friend Yati stopped by for a quick Hari Raya visit:

Onyang Yati

It had been a while since I last saw Yati, and it was really good to see her again, and also to see her husband Zukry, and to meet their beautiful daughter Fatihah:

Zukry and Fatihah
 

Yati brought some mini-cheesecakes (or cheese-tarts) for all to enjoy. Does this make her the Queen of Hearts?

The kids got along famously:

Hands up, Irfan!
 

Yaya plays congkak
 

Yati was obsessed with trying to fix Yaya's hair. After about thirty minutes and about a million tries, Yaya finally acquiesces and allows her hair to be ponytailed (for all of about 3-4 minutes, but that's ok). Yati was so involved in fixing Yaya's hair that Fatihah, that sweet little daughter of Yati's actually told her to leave Yaya alone. :-D

Yati is quite the hair expert though. Check out Fatihah's awesome braids:

Groovy braids, yo
 

The visit, like the Meis and their families' visit, was much too short. Thanks for making time for us, Yati. Take care, and selamat hari raya, maaf zahir dan batin. To close, one of Yati and me taken together before Yati left:

Yati's too short to bunny-ear me! Ha!
