The DJ berindu kasih with my mum and aunt.
Nama, nama utai ke diketawa?
Flowers for a much-loved and still-missed father. Apai, may you rest in peace.
This is our dabai, fruiting. Soon its harvest time... nyamai amat dabai kami tu.
Rambutan is also fruiting.
Raphael was my punching bag, when I played hooky during my kindergarden years, I splashed mud on my uniform and told my mom it was Raphael who did that, so that was why I just had to go home. I couldn't very well stay in class with a dirty dress, I told my mom. See, awal-awal saya sudah belajar jadi luyar buruk. After many incidents, my mom wised up and I was given a good thrashing. When we walked home from school and the bigger boys and girls ran fast and left us smaller kids behind, I cried and told my mom Raphael was the bad guy - I blamed him squarely. When I lost to him playing ingka-ingka, running and swimming, I made faces at him and called him "Reno" - Reno was a derogatory name, Raphael hated the name. Despite those childhood spates, Raphael did not hold any grudge against me. We are still friends to this day. Raphael got himself a good wife and has beautiful kids, praise the Lord. And the luyar buruk became a real lawyer, still brash at times (a throw back to those mischievious growing up years) but God-fearing, mostly solemn and serious, sensitive but forgiving, stubborn at times but has a lot of love to give and determined, at times wont take no for an answer and worked to achieving it with or without others' help - did I tell you I dug our very first fish pond (10 ft x 3 ft) - got my maid to help me, just because dadi said no, no fish pond. See, I was so in love with the koi fish, I must have them and build a pond for them at the front yard. Dadi said no, not interested in that and refused to help. But when he saw me and my maid nyangkul penyangkul, he said "Stop that. Ba dik pama, pama, enda ulih enda dititihka"... so next day he got me some workers and a week later my pond was all done....Despite the trying times with my antics over the years, dadi, during the silver jubilee celebration, thanked my mum for giving him ME for a wife ....wee wit, pama meh, ku Jumau.
