Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself

"Dari Abu Hurayrah r.a. bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda: Barangsiapa yang beriman kepada Allah dan Hari Kemudian, maka hendaklah ia berkata akan yang baik atau hendaklah ia diam. Dan barangsiapa beriman kepada Allah dan Hari Kemudian, maka hendaklah ia muliakan jirannya. Barangsiapa beriman kepada Allah dan Hari Kemudian, maka hendaklah ia muliakan tamunya"
  Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim

Staying in a terrace housing area, u tend to bump into ur neighbour as much to urself.. They're just next door looking at what u do.. But we have the best neighbour we could ever asked for.. All those years renting, this is the 1st time i have such nice and frenly neighbour.. Yeah lor.. We are there for a short period of time only what, so people/neighbour never really bother about us that much.. Especially that time, we were a group of single young chap...

So, this neighbour of ours top them all.. Charles, Rina with their small kids Leroy and Gerald, while the bigger ones i can't recall their name.. A simple hi now and then.. And the favor of looking after the house while we're away.. Then the constant invitations for CNY or Christmas dinner.. Its just so nice of them.. But the best of all is when the whole area got no letric supply.. And we're left in the dark from 5pm till nite.. To make things worse, Faleeq was only 2 months old that time.. Yupp! Couple of months ago...! Still i can recall it clearly.. Rina's mom, which we only call auntie was constantly coming over to look at Faleeq.. But during the blackout, she came over around 7pm wondering do we have candles for the house.. And she got a bunch of them in her hands.. So totful.. She was going like "ala lilin tak? auntie nampak gilap saja...".. We're upstairs that time, and that's the only place that we bother to put candles.. But the tot of her coming over asking how we're doing was really sweet... 

We have to park on the roadsides coz each house has more than 1 car and the porch wun fit all the cars.. Having such nice neighbour makes it less annoying to park outside.. But, not all the neighbours are nice.. There are the wth i care ones, mind ur own business ones and the what ur looking at ones.. But it dun really bother us that much.. As long as we know, when we go out and they're outside we'd just smile and waive.. Its a pity that people nowadays dun even know who their neighbour is.. Even the ones that's staying in high rise area, flats or condos let it be apartments.. Now, its all about our own selves.. Unless, if ur got into an accident in the middle of the road.. Tu pun TONTO!! hahaha
