It's been almost 3 months since mom & dad started having the Saturday nights 'sembahyang berjemaah'. It's now becoming our weekly routine, it would all start in the afternoon where mom will be busy (usually I will help with the cooking) in the kitchen preparing dishes for dinner after the 'jemaah'. But last Saturday night, mom decided to order the Nasi Beriyani.
Then, together we would clear out the furniture to make room for the sejadahs.
sejadahs laid out by 6 pm
This I want to show you! See that table below where Ayu is sitting ... ? I think the table is about 7 feet in length. It was made of stilts from an old kampung house, a gift for my father-in-law. And it is Kayu Belian. I tried lifting one end, it didn't budge one bit. It would take 6 really strong men to move the table. So, we decided to place the table there by the side so it need not be moved all the time, for now that is.

After the guests are gone, furniture are then put back to where they belong (I will have huge muscles by end of the year!) and sejadahs rolled back and kept under the kayu belian table. And everything would start all over again next Saturday ... I heard mom's planning to serve nasi lemak next week.
I'm not talking about just one or two sofas, these are heavy furniture made of good heavy wood! My mother-in-law has been collecting them ever since forever. But, we are used to doing all these now. As long as orang tua happy, nothing else matters ... Till next post, take care!
