A Ramadhan Weekend in Sitiawan

The previous week, just after one of my classes I was informed by Atok Irfan that Opah was hospitalised for a because of dengue fever. We headed back to Sitiawan to check up on her in the weekend.

After breaking fast in the car along the highway while passing by the Gurun rest stop, we decided to have our dinner in Sungai Petani.

Fortunately, Opah was on the mend although the doctor forbade her to continue her fast until she was checked out. Later, we went on a drive around town and watched Solo: A Star Wars Story at the Aeon mall – a second viewing for me since Kuala Lumpur.

Hey, it be my old school! Weird thing is that besides very small bits and pieces of it, it no longer on the whole looks like my old school. Yay for progress?

This used to be a happening place in Kampung Koh: its wet market. On some nights (I don’t really really remember which nights – I’d want to say… Thursday?) there was even live Chinese opera shows here.

We had dinner with Atok and Opah on Saturday night. Wish we could bring Yaya and Adik and family here some day.

The next day we bade Atok and Opah farewell. We would see them again come Aidilfitri in a few weeks’ time.
