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 punya badan cantik lagi.tak ada gemuk ?"
She looked at herself.Then smiled..
"Lu pun cantik ma"
My turn to laugh..
I patted her on the shoulder.
" Aunty, bukan apa saya saja suka tengok orang tua macam aunty, masih cantik.you banyak makan sayur ke aunty" In my heart, banyak sungguh Maznah ni tanya.tak jemu berusaha..
"Tak dak saya tak suka sayur punya orang,,hari2 makan ikan, ketam, semua laut punya .."
"Tapi saya tengok aunty kuat jalan."
"mana kuat, lutut semua sakit ma, saja aku jalan2.rumah tak da orang.."
In my heart..( secretive juga orang tua ni)..I remembered my mum at home..still strong juga, eats only vege and fish, never gets sick langsung, only her face is filled with freckles,unlike this beautiful nyonya..
Suddenly she turned to me .her eyes looking up and down.
"you punya umuq berapa? " Aik lawan towkey pulak nyonya ni. tanya kita balik. I was thinking fast.what to say ....
" Saya sudah 60 ma." (just want to see her reaction).
" hah, betui ka.haiya jangan bohong la. nampak 40 saja uh..?
My turn to laugh.
"You mau tengok IC ka? " I pretended to dig into my track bottom's pocket.Kalau ada sungguh mampus..
Then she patted me pula.Looked at my face and said.
"haiya, you makan apa ? cakap sama kita "
I laughed out loud.Typical of women.young or old they are so concerned about their looks.
" Makan sayur saja aunty." Muka dia tak puas hati.
"Esok kita cakap lagi a aunty.. tunggu kita sini aa.nanti saya cerita apa saya makan eh "
Sambil geleng2 kepala, she walked away towards her house, I caught myself staring at her, a beautiful lady, briskwalking everyday, not in tracksuit like me but in kebaya nyonya and batik sarung with slipper Jepun..! !
