Moyang (Great-grandmother)

MOYANG is the Malay term for Great-grandmother or great-grandfather. My mother-in-law is so much blessed because she can call herself a wife, a mother, a grandmother and her latest title great-grandmother. To-date she has 5 great-grandchildren and at 75 (approximately - need to reconfirm) she is a grand dame. Oops! I must not omit my father-in-law. He, too, is priviledged to earn the title of husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
My grand niece and grand nephew are really lucky children because they have a great-grandma. I know great-grandmas as a dying breed because many women are getting married at a late age. I think the trend is reversing now where more and more girls are marrying earl, so it will be a bonus for their mothers to earn the title Grandma; let alone Great-grandma.
This photo was taken in 2010 at my sister-in-laws house at Bukit Beruntung. We went to her house for a Aidil-Fitri gathering. The great-grandson, Aniq, is from her second grand-daughter, Nurul while the great-grand-daughter, Miasarah, is from her eldest grandson, Fakhrulzaman.
This layout is created for a challenge at Another-freaking-scrappy-challenge (I discovered while browsing one of the blogs I followed). The requirement is to scrap a Generation. I have used up most of my Generation photos for other challenges and when I found this photo in my pile of photos, I decided to work on this layout immediately. Here's the layout:
