The Teacup/Saucer with grape motif reminds me with my late father. When I was a little girl ~ me, my lil sister and my late father went to apek's shop somewhere around the Chowkit vicinity..when was that?.. back to 1978 *sigh*. It is only 5 set cup/saucer without teapot. I bought the small bowl from en.shariff just to add more members into this grapes family.
My father wants to buy the teaset for my mom and I really like this grape motif teacup and saucer..it looks so cute like my "masak-masak toys"..hiks..oopss..kecik2 dah suka cup and saucer eh *wink* and my father agreed with my choice *smile*. It was with my mom for so many years, until one day I asked from her that I would like to keep it and my mother said yes!.
My father passed away in 1980 to due his long illness. I am gratefull to Allah for lending him to us eventhough for a short time and I had been given a chance to take care of him while he is sick, bathed him, cleaned him, combed his hair, gently rubbing his back to eased his pain. Losing a father is a painful experienced in my childhood days but I throw the sadness and let all the sweet memories with him filled my heart.
"Ya Allah sampaikanlah seumpama pahala bacaanku kepada roh ayahku. Ya Allah, ampunilah dosanya, kasihani dan selamatkanly dia dan maafkanlah kesalahannya, muliakan kedatangannya, lapangkan kuburnya, terimalah kebaikannya, hapuskanlah kesalahannya dengan Rahmat-Mu, Wahai Tuhan Yang Maha Pengasih".
