Cukup untuk bekalan dua keturunan.
Sebagai lelaki comel dan metro (so I was told), aku terdedah dengan benda-benda macam minyak wangi, oil blotting sheets dan lip gloss. Pun begitu, aku tak akan buat semua tu kat depan dia. Hormat punya pasal.
Tapi one day, entah macamana aku boleh terpakai lip gloss kat depan dia. Aiseymen... berdesing jugak telinga aku kena tiau.
A few years after that, ayah aku berpeluang mengerjakan haji. Syukur aku sebab akhirnya dapat jugak dia jejakkan kaki ke tanah suci. He's been talking about it since as long as I can remember lah.
As it was an important family affair, the whole extended family were at the airport when he came back. I was there too. But to my surprise, I saw my ayah were fixing a lip gloss... on his lips (where else!) when he finally appeared at the arrival hall.
"Ni pakai lip gloss ni nak jadi perempuan eh?" I asked. Sungguh durhaka soalan aku. I know I know. Supposedly aku tanya how is he doing, or how was the flight. But I can't help myself to take advantage of that kantoi-ness.
"Err tanah suci cuaca kering..." He replied.
"I know. Sorry ayah. Was so unappropriate of me."
"It's ok son."
"Welcome home ayah..."
