Of lampu pelita and bunga api

Life is unexpectedly different especially at work where people at the other corner has started celebrating with lampu kelip-kelip and leisurely spend their time doing nothing compared to our little corner at the back of this office which busy with year end project that just kicked off. No Ahmad Jais song and no Saloma happy raya song.....

Back home we tried to set the mood for the kids with kampung mood, hubby bought this pelita and went to Abu Bakar Baginda little grocery shop to get minyak tanah..

I remember many years ago, passing along a small river from Kuala Perlis to Alor Setar, every house decorated their compound with these lampu pelita..it was a beautiful sight especially when the lights reflected on the tali air along the road


They were happy especially when abah spoilt 'em with bunga api and bunga api 'pop'......he is the main supplier of bunga api to his nieces and nephew back home..!!

But I'm not really keen on these stuff especially with the news of kids losing their fingers and everything...
