Psst.. need to complain about that bibiklah. Not sure whether she is plain lazy or what! For as long as her tuan besar brings bekal to the office, she would only 'selet' the toasts either with jam n butter, peanut butter, honey n butter, or just butter (as per TB's request, it has to be Golden Churn. Ngada jer).When her mood pasang yet to surut, she would either put some hot dogs, seketul dua burgers or she would make roti telur using that instant paratha. Not long after that, she reverts to the same old thing again UNTIL her tuan besar says "dah jemu with blablabla tapi kalau dapat blablabla.. best!" Alaahai, awat tuan tak habaq?? If TB jemu eating those same-o-same-o, don't you think the bibik feels the same?? You bet! That blablabla is actually any sambal or anything that enhances his
Hoping that TB enjoys his snacks today - toasted bread with thick rendang gravy (minus pieces of chicken). Dia tak minat makan ayam 'digulai' so he asked me "you masak sendiri ke?" (kalau beli punya, dia bolayan).
Hal semalam .. Saturday. Teh, Ndja, SIL and I were invited by Ngah to come along memeriahkan acara shopping for some materials. Early planning in lieu of her son's wedding. Normally the owner of the majlis would have a color theme so we asked Ngah what's her color theme like. Ngah as usual "pakai sebarang ajelaaah, hehe .. but for sure I berdua pakai rona sama.. hahaha". According to Ngah's PA aka Ndja, the colors are turquoise, shades of green and purple/lavendar for respective majlis (nikah and reception).
Did I join them? Your guess is as good as mine .. No I did not as KL is very (very) far, tssk.. tssk (though Ndja was kind enough to offer me a lift). How could I go when I have errands to run and 'hati tatak cinang'. Before verooom to SA to pick Puteri Hang Za Li, I went to the nearby grocery shop and also pay a visit to Apek X at his mobile stall to purchase some perishables etc.
Upon reaching home from SA, I detour to the nearest supermarket, still as if I had not done with grocery shopping. Bummer! I've forgotten that some supermarkets do not offer plastic bags on Saturdays. After all the items being scanned through baru teringat and so how did I carry those to the car? -> squids, chicken, meat, mee gemuk, prawns and a few more *sigh*.
My bad of not remembering to bring along a bag or something BUT the look on the cashier's face yang buat I tak tahan ... amat menusuk qalbu! After she had scanned through the tags, she just put on that TAWAR face as if telling me "dah scan, nak tunggu apa lagi?". Prior to this, I did ask the Bangla who weighed the prawns for some old newspaper sheets (maklum kepala udang kan tajam? It might cause some holes to the plastic bag thus whatever liquid that might seeps through it would eventually brought the BESTEST aroma in no time at all .. dalam kereta pulak tu.. oh no).
So professionally (hic!) I gathered all my things using the Nanyang Siang Pau old sheets but I did not angkat kaki immediately as I was watching the lady behind me coping with her things (she borong quite a lot). You know what?? The cashier walked up at the opposite cash register, picked up a paper box and placed it next to the lady. She did that even before she scans through the items belong to the lady.
Apparently the lady didn't use the paper box offered to her as she had brought her own bag. I was wandering.. if the cashier could offer the lady a box, why couldn't she offer me something as well? TN or BH old sheets would do fine.
I agree about the go green thingy but for the benefit of other shoppers esp the forgetful ones, I'd like to suggest to the owner of the mini market to provide some bio-degradable bags sold at reasonable price. It would be the shoppers' prerogative either to remain forgetful yet not minding paying a small amount for the bd bag or just make do using the old newspaper sheets.
