Assalamu'alaikum. I attended a packed and tensed professional course on Friday recently, which had drained me both mentally and physically. Like, all four corners of the huge hall were hitting me bit by bit - minute after minute, hour after hour. Boy, I must have aged ten times older that day! I somehow managed to stay alert right until the last slot in the evening but almost lost it at the very end of the closing ceremony. Thank God the guest of honour didn't have much intention to lengthen his speech more than necessary.
Anyways, that day I wore a black and white polka dots kurung Pahang paired with white shawl. The dots seemed to represent the uncertain links in my career, the missing ports in my life. Well, sort of. That much the course had affected me in loads of ways. Hence, the emotional drain.
And for the first time in a long time my heart was calling for rescue,"Mom... I'm tired!!!" Yeah, we adults still crave for moms..
