Had a longer chat with Joe. He called around 9.45pm. He told me bout his daily activities at the detention center. Nothing I heard was hard, he said macam dalam movies lah. Lepas makan, kena tidur, then ada inspection, masing-masing kena ada di katil, petang main game. Ada yang main basketball, ada yang lepak je sembang-sembang. Joe kata dia tak main apa-apa. Hehehe.
Aku dah sampaikan well wishes semua orang kat dia telling him our concerns and that everyone is praying for him.
Now, he's waiting for the court hearing on 20th May. After that, most probably the process of deportation to Malaysia will take place. According to what he heard, he could be in Malaysia by July. So, kita sama-sama berdoalah agar takde apa complication dan Joe boleh deported as soon as possible.
Ceria je suara dia, gelak-gelak. He told me he called delinn earlier pastu makcik tu tanya tak sedih ke. Joe cakap, kalau nak ikut sedih, memang lah. Hari-hari dia nangis. And I told him it's true but crying won't take him anywhere. We also agreed that when he was detained, walaupun bukan dalam keadaan yang terbaik, it was fated that way, that he's coming back in such way.
Aku cakap jugak, kalau nak tunggu dia fully prepared to come home, entah bila agaknya, which he agrees. Dan daripada yang aku dengar, he's mentally prepared this time to come home. Again, let's pray for the process to be as smooth as it can.
Apa lagi ek? Oh... aku tanya was it hard for him there? Dia kata it's a new experience for him. And he's documenting everything which he hope to blog about it later. The worst part, according to him, was when he was first detained, siap kena gari kaki dan tangan tu. I bet it was damn hard even if it happened in front of us pun sure boleh drop to tears.
So, itu je lah update for now. Let's pray hard for him, for his safety and his safe return to Malaysia.
