Wednesday evening when I arrived home, I saw an unfamiliar figure outside my back door. I usually enter the house through that door but since the animal was right infront of it I hesitated for a little bit. It has an unfamiliar shape, because it does not look any of Sya's cats. I went closer and to my suprised it was a monkey. I know, perhaps you may think why suprise because I am staying in a kampung. But we have never had a monkey coming to the house before. We don't have any bushes or hutan behind my house. In front is jalan raya, so where it came from puzzled me. It might have been lost I presumes. With the rambutan ripening on the trees and the other plants around the house, my compound may have been a haven for it to stop by.
It looked at me, seemed to be quite tame, and I am not about to try and get hold of it because I don't want to be beaten. I couldn't tell whether it is someone's pet because it did not have any chain around its neck. I don't know, if any of my neighbours who may have got a monkey for a pet.
When I shooed it away what it did was to climb up to the roof. It stayed there for sometime. My maid was trying to lure it to come down and move out of the compound. She used a ripe papaya, but still the monkey would not come down. I then told my maid to just ignore it, place the papaya where it can see it on the fence, it may come down later. My hubby was concerned because it uprooted some of his palm trees, to eat the bulb (umbut). I was concerned that it might attacked any of my girls, when they go outside playing. I asked them to stay in door.
The next morning (Thursday) I saw it was sitting on the cement road where my hubby always parked my car. It saw me prying from my window pane looking at him/her (how to tell the monkey's gender?) and came closer to the window. I didn't open the window for fear it might just leap into the house. It then climbed the rambutan tree just next to the window, still looking at me. It really was one curious monkey. The tree is only 2 feet away from the window pane. It was the last that I saw of the monkey. Later I was told by my maid that some neightbours were saying that it was disturbing the school children. Wonder where it came from, because a jungle is a few km away from my house. I think the effect of man clearing the jungle to make way for the housing areas and other development has taken toll on these animals. Poor them not to have their natural habitat to live in.
Besides that, I just want to "mencecer" sikit about my foreigner colleague. Last wednesday, there seemed to be lots of activities within the factory. So many groupss of visitors were around. Finance had one, Quality had one, Production had one. My mat saleh colleague was here for product prototyping, so he was working with the production people. He is from the KL office. Since so many people were around the visitors rooms were all taken up. He is a plumb man, not relly good looking, don't like him that much too.
I went to perform my solat and came back to a stinko office. My phone was turned from its original position, the chairs were also not pushed back from the table. Slightly disturbed. My office is always open, I usually let them use the phone if there is no other alternative, he is also of the same rank as me, and I am not one who is so impolite to turn away request of using the company phone. But he is surely one stinky man. Ni mesti kes tak mandi pagi ni. Dah lah mai guna ofis aku dah busuk dah, I had to sembur some air freshener to diffuse the smell. Then when I picked the phone, yerrrrkkkk, I almost puke.
So far he is the only mat saleh who have been here who has got foul (sorry lah if this is a bit strong) body adour. My boss is also a mat saleh, but he does not generate strong and bad body adour, thank God!!! I have got other mat saleh colleagues who were here before, but he (Mr SS) must be on top of the list on stinky man. I wasn't sure that it was him because I wasn't around when he was using my phone, so I asked my clerk to confirm. Sure enough it was Mr SS who used it. He came again to use the phone after that, I just said be my guest and left the room for quite some time. I turned the aircon up and later spray the air freshener again.
So tell me lah your experience with stinky colleague.
