BERSUNNAT POST SCRIPT

Tuesday, October 12, 2004

There was much more interest generated by my bersunnat posts than usual. Several shared their experience or in case of the ladies, their sibling's experience. Thank you all. I am glad to know I have more than 6 readers even though one of my daughters is overseas and one is holidaying in Terengganu.

I have to apologize to Daisyboo for making her fiancee apprehensive and thought twice about circumcision. Trust me, it is better for a Muslim to be circumcised and it is not as bad as what I wrote. And I wrote about what happened a long time ago. Even non-Muslims got their cut. And there is this persistent rumour that if you can find the parted skin, soak it in certain oil, it will make a good minyak senyonyong (love potion). People who lost it, like me, had to make do with the usual garden-variety minyak urat.
So Tris, you lucky chap you, go to a doctor and get it done, mate. Don't be like the cheap dad in the following story:

Dad: Doc, how much to circumcise my son?

Doc: 50 ringgit.

Dad: Too much! (Left and visited another doctor)

Dad: Doc, how much to circumcise my son?

Doc2: 70 ringgit.

Dad: Too much! (Decided to do it himself)

Son: Too much dad!


Hey, stop groaning. That's the only circumcision joke I can remember. Old age has its privilege.

  • I don't remember much about my bersunat ceremony but I do remember being King for a week or so. Makan disuap, Gameboy dibeli, every yell for service layan-ed.

    My mum and granny must have been very happy when everything was back to normal.

  • Before I gave birth to my son, I was thinking of having him curcimcised at birth, but the Daddy and the grandparents were concerned that the doctor might take "too much" so we didn't do it. Have to wait for at least another 4 years because he's only 3 now.
