A Prologue

Assalamualaikum, y'all!!


After a day of stressful work, he really was looking forward to come back home.  It's been 6 years already since he married the love of his life.  And the sight of his precious family is already enough to make him feel like the richest and luckiest guy in the world.  His lips broke into a smile at the thought of his 3 year-old daughter running across the living room to hug him when he comes home.  

Today was a bit of an important thing cos he had to do a presentation on the acoustics for the new Istana Budaya.  Apparently something went wrong a few years back.  The ceiling was made of a material that seems to keep the bad vibrations in and  the good vibrations out.  It's quite a wonder that no one noticed.  That was until Pinchas Zukerman, world-renowned violinist, soloist and conductor told the directors of Istana Budaya about it.  So the directors just had to do something about it.  All in all, the presentation went quiet well.

Alhamdulillah, he thought.

He just can't wait to return home.  Since it was a Thursday, he was fasting.  So was his wife.  He can't wait to taste the food his wife cooks.  Ayam masak merah.  His favourite..

Finally arriving, he parked his Chevy Camaro and took out the office stuff.  He walked to the front door of his house, smiling.  With only his family in his mind, he unlocked and opened the door.

"Assalamualaikum.  I'm back," he chimed in a playful tone.


Just a prologue for now.  The real story is yet to come ;-)

See you guys on the flip side!!
