Selamat Hari Ibu

It goes without saying that this is a tribute to my own mother, a widow at 44, and having to raise 13 children all of whom except one were still in school, and the youngest at 8 months. She should be enjoying life, and I guess she is enjoying life at this moment. But I do wish her 13 children would do more for her, and we could, including myself.

But I shall not elaborate here.

And I suddenly remembered my grandma too many moons ago when out of the blue, thing song kept ringing in my ears. This song was a hit then in Australia and to be honest, I have totally forgotten about it until recently. She too has suffered a lot raising 11 children during an era when poverty ruled.

Alfatihah for nenek Bulan.
