For the past glorious week and a half, I've just been soaking it all in. Time off from work. All the family gathering joy.. Relaxation. Food. Cousins. Games. The end of good year. The beginning of a new one. And most importantly, lots quality time with my loves.
There have been way too many years that holidays has passed us by in a flurry of 'busyness'. Where I'd been so behind on my holiday to do list that I barely had time to pause and truly appreciate the joy of the anticipation and the spirit of the gathering.
But I can honestly say that's not the case this year. My cousin brother and I manage to gathered all family members from my dad's side. The descendant of Ismail and Bokyam (ISBOK). We stayed three days and two nights at Wadi Samrah, Janda Baik Pahang (www.wadisamrah.com) and had so much fun bonding with kids and elders. Alhamdulillah, everything that we've planned went all smooth.
My dad was so happy to had this gathering and meet his siblings, nieces, nephews and grandchildrens.
I took so many photos that I had a lot of trouble narrowing them down for this post. So I sort of didn't. Will share all photos in next photo dump post :) Till then!
