Gathering in Penang
After the passing of Dadi - my Grandmother - the ancestral home in Pahang Road had been sold. Since then, gathering my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins was never straight forward. Since I was in town, I invited them for a spot of lunch. Unfortunately since DoubleTree did not offer a buffet lunch, we decided to meet up at a nearby hotel, the Rasa Sayang.
Most of my extended families based in Penang and Seberang came over. It was one of my Aunt’s birthday as well, so it was a double celebration. We had long chats and it was great to catch up with my cousins especially. Once of them got married last year and I was not able to attend their wedding. Some I had not seen for many years.
The buffet selection at the hotel was excellent, ranging from local to East and Western. I certainly enjoyed the food. And looking around, chatting with them, I realised how old I am. Something to be cherished as I seldom was able to host.
