Pemerhati Bangsa Bangsa Bersatu

Papa Khalid

Mee Goreng 'station'

Penulis sebelum mandi

I observe, I record and I try to make sense…

Over the past 2 days, me and Papa Khalid had a hilarious time trying to make sense of ‘normal’ things but seen through a ‘different’ frame of reference.

First up, the story about people with lots of money but have no class or style:

While having dinner at our favourite restaurant, PadThai, at Hartamas Square, we saw two men. Both were well dressed in their 50s or 60s and they looked like a million bucks. Datuks perhaps...

Tapi sayang seribu kali sayang… in an effort to look youthful, their rambut palsu amatlah azab. It was like … ambik from dalam laci and terus serungkup atas kepala. So the back part of the rambut palsu terkeluar macam ekor itik sesida. And the colour of the rambut palsu ‘hitam yang amat’. Must have been ordered from some catalog and not restyled for the individual kepala. Pakai taram ajer. Kalau shaved satu kepala botak kan lagi menawan and less hassle. Sometimes, money can’t buy style and class.

Second story, KPI and tukang masak mee mamak at a restaurant in Desa Pandan:

While having breakfast this morning with Papa Khalid, I was distracted by bunyi kelentang-kelentung of sudit ketuk kat kuali.

And I couldn’t help but terus tengok tuan mamak cooking mee goreng. One very interesting thing I observed, dia ada his own KPI.

After cooking each order, he will look at his watch.

He timed each and every dish he prepared.

After garnishing he handed over the prepared mee goreng to the waiter, with lots of love and pride.

Very refreshing…

MCKK Old Boys Weekend -- More Pix

Tempat jatuh lagi dikenang….

I had a great time. Didn’t get to meet face-to-face with anyone from my batch but I saw Beghat in the audience and I was stuck with the rest of the performers sampai midnite on the stage.

And Beghat (aka Datuk Amin Desa), called me very early the next morning and said “Su, sejak bila pulak kau ni pencinta wanita & bukan buaya. Anyway ok jugak kau nyanyi...”

Ok jer? Hahaha.

Anyway, lots of sembang berisi and sembang sesuka nafsu took place with adix-beradix of the big Malay College family. Among them, Tuah, Helmi Had, Datuk Khalid Ahmad, The Principal-En Rauhi, Man Cowboy, Hazellah, Yusoff Bakar, Razman Ramali, Muhtar Hashim, Redwan Yahya and many many more.

And on the way back to KL, in the car, we (me, Ashwad, Rizal and Pian) joked and joked pretending macam tak sedih… padahal, every time habis Old Boys Weekend, bertambah rindu kat sekolah yang pernah mendapat jolokan “Eton of the East” and the friends (more like family dah) yang akan selalu support and help us, especially when we are down…

Enjoy the pix…

E-Filing Income Tax

'Berpesta' bayar Income Tax

Boleh tahan ramai -- tapi the LHDN people were so helpful

4 days left.

Biasalah, last minute.

Last year dah insaf tak nak buat last minute, tapi perangai buruk ni susah nak ubah.

Yes… Manalah I nak ingat Pin Number kan?

So Cekem and I went to LHDN Kelana Jaya to get our Pin Numbers.

So now… Determinelah berapa nak bayar gomen..
