Flame raya..

Guys..

Remember back in 1987, (some of you were still babies, i think..)
i was in standard 3..
we're lived in beruas, perak..

it was only few days to hari raya,
as kids, we enjoyed that few last days,
playing the mercun,
the famous one that time was "king cat sparkles"..

"what's that..!?"
maybe some of you said,
so, i explain..
but pocket, you should know..

this is how it looks like..

well, that's not the point..
the point is, what i've done with the "king cat sparkles"..

that night,
abg long (11yrs), kak ngah (10yrs), me (9yrs) and mimi (7yrs),
playing the bunga api in front of our house,
watched by our father,
who was busy bersembang with one of the neighbour..
my mom was inside, baking the kuih raya..

i did saw abg long threwing the burning bunga api,
to the hutan lalang in front of our house..
abg long did threw the bunga api high and long enough,
to make a beautiful burning curve line in the dark night..
he just smartly calculated the timing,
that when the bunga api touch down the hutan lalang,
the belerang is finish burned,
and nothing will happened..

me, knew nothing, calculated nothing,
saying in my heart,
"elleh.. aku pun leh wat gak.."
and with my 9 yrs old boy strength,
i threw my burning bunga api to the hutan lalang..

but something was going wrong..
the line didn't curved but straight,
perfectly straight into the hutan lalang,
and the bunga api is still burning..!!

abg long yelled,
"wehh..!! kamu buat apa nih..!!??"
i remained silent,
thinking that the spark will go off soon..

and my thought was wrong..
somehow, the spark catch up the dry leaves,
burned the hutan lalang into flames..
and i went panicked, so does everyone..

my father ran into the house for water,
our neighbours too..
everyone was fighting with the fire,
which keep burning the hutan lalang..

the fire was too big to be fought with buckets of water..
so, the firemen is on the way..

i ran inside the house,
to help carrying water..
as i went to the living,
i saw my mum slipped his foot while carrying a bucket..
she fell down,
water splashed,
and the bucket went into pieces..
pity mom..
luckily, nothing happened to my mom..

as, i went back outside,
the firemen heroes are fighting the flame with their fire fighter..
and they took only minutes to bring down the flame..

well,
there was no damages,
there was no one hurts,
there was no house burnt,
only partially burnt hutan lalang..

what makes me remember clearly this story is,
nobody got angry with me..
maybe because i'm an innocent little boy..hehehe..
maybe there is no harm at all..
maybe they didn't know "who" did it..
or maybe just because it was few days before hari raya..

so guys,
have some hari raya memories to share..?

1987, we played the rusian roulette.

begini caranya,
pegang mercun roket,
bakar sumbunya,
baling keudara supaya mercun itu berpusing pusing di udara.

mari kita tgk siapa kena?
heheh,

i managed to hit my tok ayah who was walking behind us.
hahahah, but he just thought it was an accident so he was not mad.

heheh:)
