Coffee with my brother

I wonder...

What do we get out of sending Malaysians into space anyway? It is not like we're going doing any special research in space. And what's this I read about making 'teh tarik' and playing 'batu seremban' in Zero-G?

I guess one of the main highlights of my week long holiday is probably towards the end of the week when my brother suggested we have a cup of coffee... In Genting.

We were never really close when we were young boys then, so these days, I would not hesitate to say 'Yes' to the opportunity to spend time with him.

So I said 'Yes' to him. Weird... I just said Yes to my wife one week ago (hint: my wedding la...). One hour later, we were circling Genting for a parking spot. It was a cold but lovely night with no rain in sight. Did I mention we arrived shortly after midnight?! :)

But it was packed. I guess mainly due to the fact it is the school holidays and it is also the weekend. Still, it was fun to spend time with my brother.

Me, Xiao Fen, Eric and Kristy

Sometimes, we only begin to realise the importance of the people around us - our family, relatives and friends. We sometimes tend to forget them or worse, we neglect them. We sometimes take our family for granted. How often is it that we say 'Thank you' to them? We seem to think that because we are so close, we think there is no need to say 'Thanks'.

They will understand and know we appreciate the help. How wrong it is to think this way. Should we not take care of the feelings of the people closest to us? Should we not be putting them first instead of strangers whom we may never meet again? Yet, why is it that so many of us say 'Sorry' or 'Thank you' so easily to strangers but not to family and friends?

Anyway, that night... The coffee is one of the best I have ever tasted. Not because the beans are of good quality but because of the people I was with when I had the coffee.
