Alfatihah to Babah- my beloved dad!

Beberapa hari sebelum ke Kelantan, Mak tak sihat, demam sampai tak bleh bangun..aku call Mak...yang jawabnye Babah..

"Mak macam mana Bah?"
"Tu le..Mak kau tak nak pi klinik. Risau Babah.."
"Teruk sangat?"
"Tak boleh bangun.."
"Susah sangat Babah suruh si abang dukung aje Mak masuk dalam kereta.."
"Haaa..ye la.."

Alhamdullilah Mak sihat sehari sebelum ke Kelantan. And all of us were so happy to meet there. This is our first nephew in my family getting married. Babah was the most excited one!

"Mak dah beli dah hadiah kat Irfan."
"Beli apa Mak?"
"Periuk nasi dengan kettle letrik tu.."
"Wah..pandai Mak beli.."
"Si Babah hulur duit.."

Abang and his family, Mak and Babah went to Kelantan a day before the akad nikah. I went to Kelantan a bit late because Encik Hubby forgot about the majlis.. hoh la..

We arrived a bit late and also hungry in Gua Musang. The first place I was looking is a signage for a fast food restaurant.. Nah.. jumpa pon..
And Along called me..
"Ko kat mana daaa.."
"Kat KFC lah.."
"Eh.. ko jumpa KFC?"
"Ho le.. kebelai aku.. sepanjang jalan ke sini takde RnR... sungguh lapau tahap gaban aku nih"
"Haha.. ok.."
"Kau kat mana?"
"Aku kat Pekan Gua Musang le..Si Babah baru masuk bilik..tak larat tunggu kau.."
"Ait..apsal tunggu aku plak.. duduk le dalam bilik sat gi aku pi bilik Babah"
"Ye le...karang check in terus pi jumpa"
"Orait.."

After we had our lunch, we rushed to Kesedar Inn, a very nice place indeed. We unpacked all the things and I went downstairs heading to the receptionist to ask about Babah's room. But, I saw he was waiting outside with Mak.

"Eh, Mak.. Babah.. naper tak duduk dalam bilik.."
"Saja la bapak kau nak duduk luar..dia tanak duduk dalam bilik.."
"Kul baper bertolak?"
"Kul 9 pagi.. hujan lebat pastu kabus tebal, lambat la sikit.."

We chit-chatted for a while, and the kanak-kanak riang were so happy to see their Datuk and Nenek..
"Ye ye Datuk..ye ye Nenek..."

At this time, I could see Babah just kept quiet and say nothing. He just let his cucu to salam his hands and stared at them. Only Mak did the talking. Then, malam tu, everyone of us sudah bersiap to go to Irfan's majlis akad nikah. Waiting for the Tok Imam was a disaster.. Katanya lepas Maghrib but then 9 o'clock nothing happened. Sangat hoh la Tok Imam nih.

After nikah, Babah said to me..
"Babah nak amek gambar la ngan Irfan. Panggil si Irfan.."


Dua malam terakhir sebelum Babah pergi :(

And all of us smile and Babah seemed so happy to attend his first grandchild's wedding. Then we went to the bride's house. The weather was not very good. Hujan lebat bangat like cats and dogs..Since we had to park a bit far, so Babah had to walk a bit.. I ran to him with the umbrella eventhough I could see Mak had already payung my dad. The umbrella looked a bit small and I was thinking that Babah would kena the rain somehow. So, I escorted Babah and Mak with another payung. On the way to the house, there was a motorcycle blocked the small path which had made Babah a bit angry at that time.

"Sapa la parking motor dekat sini, aku nak jalan pun susah dah.."

He quickly took his tongkat and ketuk the motocycle two times. On the seat and at the tyre. I was just laughing and Mak told Babah to be patient. We quickly went inside the house. Babah was sitting in front and the ladies had to eat dekat belakang. Not too belakang lah.. We took pictures and also makan-makan dengan besnye..

During makan, we talked about our 'wonderful trip'.
"Oh.. rosak kete aku..jalannye berlubang.. sabau je le"
"Takde lampu plak tu.. bahaya lah"
"So, esok kita nak pegi untuk kenduri plak ke?"
"Errr..tak tau la..tengok macam mana"

And the next day, Shakira called my room..
"Mamida, Nenek tanya dah siap ke?"
"Blom la.. nak breakfast ke? Sat gi we all turun.."

I went to the cafe and saw all of them were eating.. Babah was eating with Mak and also his grandchildren. Kak Sarah and Abang Hashim (cousins) were at the next table. I sat at the table near Babah.

"Mak..jadi ke nak kenduri jap lagi?"
"Tak jadi kot.. yang penting akad nikahnya.. Babah nak balik.."
"Tak nak pi Cameron?"
"Ntah le.."

My SIL came to me and asked me to persuade Babah...all of us really wanted to go to Cameron Highland.
"Ida tanya le.. Kalau Ida tanya mesti Babah nak pegi.."
"Polakk...jap gi la..mo makan dulu la.."

So, after makan, I asked Babah...
"Bah..nak pi mana lepas nih?"
"Balik rumah le.."
"Oh..rugi orang bawak baju mengerlip tak bleh nak makan kenduri..Babah tanak pegi Cameron Highland Bah? Tak jauh pon..dalam 45 minit aje.."

He kept quiet and stared at his shoes.. then, suddenly he nodded. The kids were jumpinglike katak lompat when they saw their Datuk nodded. On the way to Cameron, Abang suddenly stopped his car.. cik Nopal muntah.. habes keta baru Kechat.. But Babah just said..

"Sapa yang muntah daaa.."

At Brinchang, we had our lunch and Babah pulak yang muntah..
"Apsal Mak?"
"Babah kau pening agaknya.. tu yang muntah.."
"Ok ke Bah?"
He just nodded.. he ordered the nasi ayam but he touched the ayam a little and ate a small amount of nasi. Shakirah had to finish Babah's food. Then, we went to the shopping place. My feeling was not so good this time. Mak also takde mood to buy things.. She just bought some fresh vegetables. I was thinking.. bringing Babah to this place was not right..

I asked Mak..
"Babah dah buat ke surat-menyurat nak wat dialisis kat Kedah bulan doblas nih?"
"Babah tak buat apa pun.. tapi dia kata boleh ke dia nak bawak nurse dia tu?"
"Wah.."
"Dia kata nurse tu bagus.. Dia tak nak nurse lain.."
"Kena la bayau ek.."
"Tapi tak tau le dia jadi pegi ke tak..Pegi Kelantan pun dah macam nih.. "
"Kedah takde jalan putar-putar ngan lubang-lubang Mak. Datang eh.."

Then, it's time to berpecah... I had to go to Simpang Pulai and Abang chose the road to Tapah. I saw Babah was sleeping inside Abang's car... I had no choice but to wake Babah up. I opened the door and Babah woke up...

"Babah.. orang nak balik Kedah dah...nak salam Babah.." I took Babah hands, kissed his hand and also his cheeks..
"Jumpa lagi Babah nooo.."
"InsyaAllah.." slow aje bunyinye... and he shut his eyes.

Kat luar, we chit chat lagi and I kept on looking at Babah. Tidur lagi.. kesian si Babah. Mesti letih nih.. I did not suspect anything at that time.

Masa in Sungai Petani, my SIL sms-ed me asking where was I. I texted her about my current location and sent her a picture of sup ekor that I was having without knowing anything about Babah. We arrived home around 10pm. I bathed and went to sleep. It was around midnight when Ateh called. My hubby woke me up and told me about Ateh's call. I called Mak. Mak said..

"Babah tak sedar diri.. ambulans ada tu.."
"Macam mana bleh jadi macam tu.."
"Tak tau la.. si abang pun ada ni..oklah.."

Mak terus letak phone. I called Ateh. She told me about the same thing.. at this time I heard an incoming call.
"Eh.. tu call ko ke aku aaa?"
"Eh..aku nye.. jap lagi sambung.."

Within a minute Ateh called back and she was crying while saying these painful words..
"Daaahh.. Babah dah takde..."
And I was crying hysterically hearing that.. I felt so numb and also didn't know what to do..
"Babah dah takde? Babah dah takde?Ya Allah...Ya Allah... Ya Allaaahhhh..." We just cried and cried..
"Kau takpe la sempat juga jumpa Babah tadi..."
My hubby hugged me and shocked with the news. Adam was also crying knowing that Datuk was gone.

Feeling sad and depressed, I hung up and started packing. I called my sisters and my cousin to tell about the sad news. It seemed so unreal, having a very normal and nice day with Babah but it ended that way..I kept on crying while packing the things..
We started our journey back to Melaka around 2 a.m. with Pak Mat's family. We arrived around 10 am in the morning. I was so lucky to have the chance to see Babah and did the solat jenazah. All of us were there except Along who received the news at 4 am. She could not make it on time. Babah was kept at 11.00 am in the morning and we were so surprised to see so many people to see Babah for the last time.

Until now, I still could not believe that Babah is gone. When I was in Melaka, masa kol 6 pagi, I quickly woke up thinking of Babah to do his dialisis, sapa plak nak hantar pagi nih. Then, baru teringat.. eh..Babah dah takde.. I cried again and again..

Aidiladha this year is so much different. I hear no more Babah calling us to get up and get ready to solat raya.. Normally, Babah akan panggil semua orang..
"Cepat la.. siap.. nak pegi Masjid semayang..."
"Bangun.. solat subuh lekas...jangan lalai daaa.."
Tidak ada lagi kedengaran suara Babah dalam rumah nih..

Alfatihah to Babah. We love you very much Babah. Semoga Babah ditempatkan di kalangan orang-orang beriman... Amin, ya Rabbal Alamin (T_T)
