*** Story 1 ***
My 11-year-old brother Musa have this habit of hiding behind a wall, waiting for his 'prey' to come near and he'll jump out, surprising that person.
One evening when my dad, Musa and I were having dinner, Raneem came into the house and headed towards the dining hall. Musa quickly got up, ready to scare her.
But in no time, Raneem appeared and surprised Musa instead, with her cute "huaarggghh" with hands up in the air. Musa jumped, and fell onto the floor, very surprised, not expecting a two-year-old girl to scare him...

*** Story 2 ***
I was focusing on my work when, Nadiah, my childhood friend, mentioned something very true.
"Kite rase kan, awak ni macam ayah awak. Suka cakap 'ha' je utk reply orang bila busy."
I paused, processing the statement in my brain.
Yes. Abah use to just reply "Ha" "M'mm" or simply just nod in agreement if he's focusing on something when his child(ren) interferes.
Let me give you this example:
He's reading the newspaper in the living room. I pass by and see a cup of hot tea on the table and went towards it. "Abah, nak sikit air teh ni boleh?" "M'mmm"... But you just know that he's actually not hearing what you're asking.
And I think,,, I do that all the time, when reading, when driving, when facing the PC, etc etc...
