"Ekonomi sekarang teruk. Pakcik yang kerja teksi ni pun susah nak cari makan. Terasa la kurang orang naik teksi."
"Hajat di hati, nak balik kampung. Tapi pakcik agak, kena ada duit dalam RM 1000 sebulan. Kat kampung mana ada kerja."
"Pakcik memang suka minum teh Lipton. Dulu satu pek RM 10.50, lepas tu harganya naik RM 13.00. Semalam, pakcik tengok, harganya naik lagi."
"Pakcik rasa, pakcik ni ok la lagi bekerja. Macammana dengan orang miskin?"
Aku angguk-angguk sambil membalas perbualannya. Oh sungguh senang kalau berbual dengan pakcik si pemandu teksi, banyak hal tentang ekonomi dari segi kehidupan harian yang mereka nampak.
"Betul tu pakcik, benda lain kita bukan perlu sangat. Tapi makanan memang kena beli. Harga barang mentah macam gula, beras pun dah naik."
"Harga roti canai makin naik. Masa minyak naik, dia naik 10 sen. Masa gula naik, dia naik 10 sen. Tapi bila minyak turun, harganya masih tak turun."
Kami sambung bicara. Tentang ekonomi dunia yang makin merudum. Tentang ramainya mereka yang hilang pekerjaan. Tentang kos inflasi yang tinggi.
Ahhh, sudah sampai destinasi aku rupanya. Terasa pantas masa berlalu.
"RM 7.60, nak."
Aku hulur RM 10, "Lebih tu saya kira sedekah."
"Oh terima kasih nak. Alhamdulillah, lepas duit pakcik nak makan roti canai."
Aku tersenyum sambil membalas "Selamat makan roti canai pakcik!"
Teksinya meninggalkan aku.

Fahri: Ibu, nak shuuu (nak susu)
Ibu: Susu dah rosak la dik
Fawwaz: Hah, ibu tipu adik
Ibu: Ha, TV cakap apa tadi, kan kalau menipu kena rotan (referring to Pondok-Pondok TV9)
Fawwaz: Tadi tu, ibu tipu adik kata susu rosak
Fahri stops lactating (at last!) for the last 2 days at the age of 2 years, 2 weeks and 1 day <-phew, what a relief.
The reason: He is older, I have finished the 2 years bf timeline and I am tired with his excessive wake ups at nights.
He cried when I first tell him that he has to stop feeding (hadoi, budak dah besar, kadang-kadang dok atas riba pun tak larat nak layan.. badan dah panjang). So hubby took the initiative to sleep with him for the past one week downstairs. And I sleep alone for that one week without Fahri.. heee.... (oh joy!). And my hubby did suffer waking up at nights after 2 years having his sleep undisturbed when our youngest wanted milk.
Yesterday, he is back at our bed, but he knows that if he wants any milk, it will be from the bottle and not from me.
And We have enjoined man in respect of his parents-- his mother bears him with weakness (and hardships) upon weakness (and hardship) and his weaning takes two years-- saying: Be grateful to Me and to both your parents; to Me is the eventual coming. [31:14]
And the mothers should suckle their children for two whole years for him who desires to make complete the time of suckling; and their maintenance and their clothing must be-- borne by the father according to usage; no soul shall have imposed upon it a duty but to the extent of its capacity; neither shall a mother be made to suffer harm on account of her child, nor a father on account of his child, and a similar duty (devolves) on the (father's) heir, but if both desire weaning by mutual consent and counsel, there is no blame on them, and if you wish to engage a wet-nurse for your children, there is no blame on you so long as you pay what you promised for according to usage; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah and know that Allah sees what you do.[2:233]
