I don't feel good writing about my sister's story. I know it is something that can be taken as a lesson learnt. There are so many similar cases out there, very similar stories, but many would not want to share or be vocal about it. I wonder why. Malu ke atau ini tak jadi kat diri sendiri? To those who have commented, thank you so much. So I am sorry that I may have to retrack both stories. At this point there is no ending or conclusion to the story. So there is no point whining about it. Wrong actually, I got to release my tension, I hear people's opinion. I know that she is not alone in this world having that problem.
As it is I am still at my wit's end trying to find a suitable idea for my entry. I am getting lazy, I know, I am getting bored perhaps, maybe my head is so "hot" with all the durian that get into my body the last few days. I don't really like durian, I can eat durian, but I prefer manggis, rambutan, mempelam (manggoes) any time better than durian. But my hubby just love durian so much. He planted different kind of species in our compound. Two of those trees have already fruiting and we have eaten them. He will still buy durian from the roadsite stall or any where he knows would have good species of durian. In other word I think my hubby is a durianmaniac. He is diabetic, but, he can't resist durian. He bought durian at Bukit Gantang on the way to KL recently, he found it to be good, so he bought some more on the way home. I have got a headache today, my head is heavy, my body feels hot, my throat is dry. I have been drinking water non stop in between visits to the toilet. But at any time I prefer him to be durian maniac or plant maniac, rather than he goes around chasing skirts hehehe.
This morning as he drove out of the compound, I received his called. I thought he must have forgotten something, NO, he sounded excited. Why? Because he saw a few bunches of dokong fruits ripening on the tree. He was excited to see them so much so that he had to share the excitement with me. Imagine that!!. He planted the trees quite sometime back almost at the same time as the durian, but only this year we see them fruiting. He was excited to see the fruit of his labour, a yellow bunch of fruits waiting to be plucked. He told me not to pluck them yet, to leave them a little bit more ripe before plucking them. It seems that this year we are able to eat Durian, Rambutan and Dokong from our garden. Alhamdulillah, berbudi pada tanah, hasilnya kenyang lah perut kan...
I chatted with Kak Long last night, after I watched CSI=NY. Hubby was dreaming away, while I chatted with her. She was doing her work at the same time. It was near midnite that we stopped chatting. She was telling me about her new roommate who has just joined her and the current roommate. So there are now 3 in the room. The new room mate is also from Penang and like Kak Long, this is her first time away from home and family. Unlike Kak Long, she is so teary eyed. It would be good for Kak Long to have another friend from Penang as they can travel back to Penang together during holidays. Her current roommate is also a nice girl, they seem to have got on well together. Although they are in the same course but they not in the same class. She told me she reads my blog so, I can't "mengumpat" her lah, hehehe.
My car road tax and insurance were expired yesterday. I have already renewed it, but had not displayed it on the windsheild. I went out to lunch today, with the old road tax still displayed. I had totally forgotten to even carry the road tax with me. It was in my bag. Phew, lucky I was not stopped by the police or the JPJ. What brought it to my mind was when I saw the JPJ patrol car passed me by and thathad jolted my memory. I would have no excuse whatsoever, so, as I was driving, I had to think of the excuse I would give if I got stopped by the police or the JPJ. I wonder if my sweetest smile would still do the trick!!. Senyum manis makcik kampung, tough luck I think, tak kan nak menjadi dah tu. Kalau masa anak dara mungkin lah kan, kan...
Luckily, I was spared the embarassement and the fine. I need to remember to put it up before I go home afterward. Don't want to take any more chances on lady luck.
Bear with me with this story for now, I hope I will have something better on the next day.
