Balik Kampung

Balik Kampung by late Sudirman is one of the Aidilfiltri song I like. It's an evergreen nostalgic song (in the early 80's) but it still remain popular up to this day. Every year without fail, we can still hear this song being played on air during Raya festival. And somehow over the last few year, everytime this song was played, I will have the flashback of the Blue Hyppo being rejected from boarding the MAS flight to balik kampung (coz no animals allowed to board on the flight). That advertisement really has a great impact. Anyone remember that advertisement? At least I do :)

Balik Kampung (Sudirman Hj Arshad)

Perjalanan jauh tak ku rasa
Kerna hati ku melonjak sama
Ingin berjumpa sanak saudara
Yang selalu bermain di mata

Nun menghijau gunung ladang dan rimba
Langit nan tinggi bertambah birunya
Deru angin turut sama berlagu
Semuanya bagaikan turut gembira

Balik kampung oh oh oh…( 3X )
Hati girang
Ho ho ho… Balik kampung (3X)
Hati girang

Terbayang wajah-wajah yang ku sayang
Satu-satu tersemat di kalbu
Pasti terubat rindu di hati
Menyambut kepulangan ku nanti

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfiltri and Have A Safe Journey Back Home to all those who Balik Kampung. And yeah, I too will balik kampung soon, end of this month. ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ Yipee ;)
