Irfan’s Conflagration of Grandparents

For the first time in a long time, all four of Irfan’s grandparents were at the same place and time. All the way from Sitiawan, Atok & Opah Irfan travelled to Pasir Mas to spend a couple of days there at Tok Bah & Tok Ma’s house at Lubok Tapah. They came to attend Ain’s cousin’s wedding in Kota Bharu. Which turned out to be great vacation in the end.

Soon after their arrival, we went to the wedding kenduri where photos were taken and food was consumed. After the function, we left Tok Bah & Tok Ma to help with the cleanup as we out-of-town tourists went a-visiting beaches like Pantai Seri Tujuh, and Pantai Cahaya Bulan the next day where Irfan played with a kite.

There is no picture of the kite being played, but we do have these photos instead:

[[image:kb_wedding04.jpg:Pantai Seri Tujuh:center:0]]We went to Pantain Seri Tujuh after the wedding to check out the place we stayed overnight more than a decade ago… before I even met Ain. The chalets on stilts over the water were still there. Maybe someday we’d spend the night there once again.
