Nyonya cantik hilang...

I went brisk walking like usual this morning.After about 300 meters I turned to see whether nyonya cantik was there too.No sight of her. I continued walking.A few regular friends were there.No nyonya cantik..
           Kept on walking.Started sweating.My eyes searching..no nyonya cantik still. Passed by her housing area, no sight of her..
          Maybe she 's not walking today.Or tak sihat kut.? I kept on my steps. A few young girls were jogging fast..I smiled .They smiled back.
          "Jogging aunty ?"
          "No , just brisk walking " I said..
          Two men were fishing. So early? The fish were still in bed la..
           "Dapat? " I asked.
           "Belum lagi." Both answered at once..
          One Chinese lady was doing taichi alone.She was always earlier than me. slim lady with blonde coloured hair.This one has her back to everyone.Couldnt see her face..
           Hah dah letih jauh dah jalan.Turned back , n…

Nyonya cantik ! !

I saw her walking towards my direction, her face putih dengan bedak. I thought it must be bedak nyonya.She is an old Chinese lady.....her body slim and fit. I smiled at her, she smiled back, in no time we were walking together along the jogging track..

    "Aunty duduk mana ?"
    " Sana belakang " pointing her finger to the few wooden houses .
    "Umur you berapa aunty ?  
    " Alah dah 83 dah.Sudah tua la" She kept smiling.

    I was shocked.She must be kidding I thought. 83 ? My God, she looked strong..I got more friendly now. I looked at her again. Her face was flawless.No freckles like other Chinese ladies her age.
    "Aunty, you makan apa ? you punya kulit cantik,?"
    " Mana ada makan apa.tak da punya la.mana ada cantik... sudah tua ma "
    "Itu dalam beg plastik tu ada apa? "
    " Nasi lemak la. mana ada apa.he he." She started to laugh.
    " ok ok aunty, hari2 you makan apa ? you puny…

Puan Dariah Saad...specially for you..

As I was sorting out books in my room, I came across a poem which automatically flashed back my memories to the lady which I used to admire when I was in form 4 at Derma school.
    When my eldest daughter got a place in Tg.Kursiah College in Seremban, she was the principle there.People said as I mingled around with other parents in the hall of the school on registration day
    "You from Perlis eh, the pengetua sini pun orang Perlis tau".
    Never came into my mind it was her.Puan Dariah Saad , my Bah Melayu teaccher in form 4...

    Tup tup, a few months later she was appointed the Perlis Director of Education.Of course I was proud enough to hear that. When sometime we bumped into each other she was the first to smile and aknowledge.Kadang 2 dengan pengarah2 ni kita tk berani nak look up.hormat kan.But she is different..she would smile and said 'cantik baju' or sekolah mana u la ni? "
   Once I was the host in one programme at the state library where they …

Suddenly I remembered that I have not written about last raya. This raya its Famila's turn to be here.Last year she celebrated with her inlaws in Keramat Kuala Lumpur.My son Ahmad Khazimi also came back with them.It was the merriest raya ever..with the presence of little Sara. she's able to walk now.Happy to see her walking, the way she lifts her left leg was very funny..
    On Hari Raya Eve we cooked and cooked, my target the food will all be on the table before my family go for raya prayers..memang la penat, At 4.30 am I woke up to cook the rice, panaskan smua lauk pauk, ketupat and rendang too.
          By 10 am the first family came for raya.Followed by 2, 3, 4, until late evening.Nasib baik air dah tersedia in a big glass container. Biscuits were all in the jars.Other food is all arranged nicely on the big table..


                             My cucu Sara on the early morning of raya was already outside the house..

Selamat tinggal Padang nan indah..

Jam sudah menunjukkan pukul 830 pagi.Namun cuaca masih samar-samar. Lampu masih terpasang.Mungkin sebab keadaan masih gelap. Air hujan masih menitik di luar tingkap.
     Kami di ruang makan resort untuk sarapan. Kerana makanan di masak serta merta, sambil menantikan nasi goreng dan mee goreng kami dihidangkan dulu dengan telur separuh masak.Panas dengan kopi panas. Sedap la juga..


        En Aziz yang sinonim dengan topinya yang pelbagai warna mengadap kopi bersama isteri.
        Fahmi lebih suka menjadi cameraman yang setia..




 Sebelum menjamah makan tengahari, Is membawa kami ke destinasi pelancungan yang tidak kurang cantiknya, Air terjun  dari Gunung Tandikek di Lembah Anai. Terpegun saya. Kalau Niagara Fall bagaimanalah rupanya.Tentulah berganda besar dan kuat lontaran airnya dari atas gunung.



    Di bahu jalan penduduk kampung tetap menjaja hasil kampung.Di sini juga banyak dihual buah markisa. bergantungan.kerepek2 yang pelbagai , berlambak untuk di beli..
    Kami singgah m…

Nuansa Meninjau yang sedingin Gunung Jerai..

Hari terakhir kami di bawa ke Nuansa Meninjau, sebuah resort cantik 4 bintang.Letaknya di kawasan terpencil yang amat sejuk sekali.Berbagai fasiliti ada di sini. Sayang sekali hujan turun tidak berhenti-henti sejak kami sampai di situ.



     Saya di bahagian belakang hotel. Berhenti saja hujan terus turun kebawah untuk mengabdikan wajah dalam camera.


     Ruang untuk berbual atau bersantai ada di sekitar resort. tiada pandangan lain selain kehijauan yang amat meruntun hati. Sayu pun ada.Indahnya anugerah Tuhan.


      Kolam renang yang bersih sekali.teringat saya cucu saya yang seorang.Kalau la dia ada bersama tentu suka dia bermain air. Tapi bila ingatkan sejuk yang hampir membekukan kaki tangan saya ....


    Bahagian hadapan resort.bersih dan terjaga rapi.Satu hal yang saya terpandang ialah di sini mereka suka meletakkan langsir pada anjung bangunan.Di bumbung pula..! tengok saja di anjung hadapan resort ini.Warna merah pula tu..



                 Kami turun paling awal.yang…
