Belated Wesak Entry

Cleaning my old boxes and I found my childhood love letters/diaries. :D Here is one that somehow related to Wesak. ;)

A friend once asked me, "What is the importance of Wesak (to you – the intended question)?" She thought I was an alim (devout) Buddhist.

"Holiday of course! And the feast!" I answered merrily. :D And she raised one eyebrow.

End of story.

That happened when I was 9-year-old. My (pretty) friend was 10-year-old mixed Malay-Kadazan. So you see, had she asked that question to me now I would have answered differently. BTW, I had a crush on her at that time. You know who you are. ;)

Don't want to take your time reading this crap. Have a nice day, and a meaningful (belated) Wesak Day. ;)
