Day Twenty Six

Hmm.. a new month of March has come. 12 Days from now I will be 36 days old baby. We call it "selapan" a Javanese term for a baby who reaches that's particular age. In Javanese tradition, where Mum belongs, that special day will be celebrated as I reach that age safely. Just like "umbilical chord falling", it'll be celebrated by cooking a specil sticky-rice porridge.

Combined with Islamic tradition, that day also will be celebrated by cutting my hair by many people in the mosque who recite shalawat (praising Prophet Muhammad) in a Aqiqa for Baby celebration. I am looking forward to that day where I'll be a five minute celebrity.

In aqiqah celebration my parents will slaughter a goat as thankgiving expression to Almighty God for my birth.
