Bima Sakti Menari

Bima Sakti Menari

It does not want to move the stars in the sky. The stars are there. Only human eyes cannot see. Strangely enough, little light obscures the senses. So God created the human senses with such limitations that human could not be satisfied with what they sense of.

Can Nurul Hafsa brings back the stars to Kuala Selangor?
