Selamat Hari Raya 2010
Selamat Hari Raya 2010
Sleepy brown toad sits on a log
A loud lorry passes, making it start
Even though we are far from your eyes
Know that you are close to our heart.


Selamat Hari Raya, Eid Mubarak, Maaf Zahir dan Batin.

Update: Regrets, I Have a Few

If I had it to do all over again, I would post this pantun instead:

So sleepy katak di atas batang
Fast lori lalu dibuatnya startle
Walaupun kitorang jauh dari mata
Know that you all are close to our heart-le
