Pink-necked Green Pigeon, Burung Punai Gading

Dari mana punai melayang,
Dari Sawah turun ke padi,
Dari mana datangnya sayang,
Dari mata turun ke hati.

Cuti sekolah bermula, maka bermulalah  aktiviti memotong hujung punai aka Khatan
Ya Allah permudahkan urusan ku dan lindungi pesakit ku dari musibah dan komplikasi, Amin!
