Since I was at the Petronas Twin Towers, I went for a walk at KLCC park after I finished my business. Wonderful to be able to enjoy the sunset and changing hues of the sky.
On the way back, I stumbled upon a Malay family breaking fast at one corner of the park.
Naturally, I asked permission to photograph them. I explained that it is a rare and blessed moment to have culture, architecture and a dusk sky so beautifully juxtaposed. The Azri Family graciously agreed.
Not only that, they kept insisting I join them by offering me whatever food they brought along. I am truly touched by their generosity, hospitality and friendship towards a stranger (and fellow Malaysian).
Am also glad I was successful in capturing them as they really were: humble, jovial and very warm people.
We chatted and Mrs Azri said they are looking forward to go back to their kampung in Rembau for the holiday. There’ll be prayers in the morning followed by a big feast on the first day of Raya.
Here’s wishing the Azri family and everyone a safe drive home and Selamat Hari Raya.
