71. ThisIsMyFirstCard

bumph!! the taxi door was shut.
'mana cik?' asked the taxi driver,
'Inderawasih, dekat kentakki' answered farid shortly,
his heart still pumping,
regretting his mistake.
It was not that hard.
just take the name card and hand it to her,
and definitely farid's inbox will be decorated by
her mail tomorrow with the title of
'Hi!! salam pengenalan dari perlis'
From inside the taxi farid still can see her stuffing
baggage into her father's car in the distance,
pulling her hair every now and then when it get to the face.
Farid smiled saying to himself 'oh honey.. why dont u just tie em up?'

Her long and rebonded hair was straight.
touching the lower part of her back.
black as black as the night contrasting with her
white and fair skin. easily mistaken her as a chinese girl.
with her sleeveless attire, soft stretchable pants
and the big pointy eyes, light make-up
anyone could mistaken her for an amoi.

He chuckled silently as he reminisce the crossing point of him and her.
It was late and Farid was waiting for the flight back to penang when he saw her,
walking exaustedly, she smiled to farid...
vaguely like asking 'is that seat taken?'
and Farid smiled back, moving his butt a little bit like giving a sign
'by all means love... sit beside abang and make my day'
and so she sat, the first 30minutes was a mute, no sounds from both of them.
It was like gas flowing out of the burner but no sparks, and therefore no flame.
but who would have thought the sparks would be...
'alnari kanna faaya hu?'(Hell i dont know arabic... i just made this up, dont ask me what does it mean)
asked an arab guy to the girl and she replied back in arabic as clearly as Tun Mahathir talks in northern slang. There's a certain sense of acquaintance in between the arab and her, maybe they were on the same flight from Cairo or something.
'u can speak arabic?' ask farid awed
'yes, and i can speak english and malay' she said with a smile, trying to hide the exausted face she's wearing. 'Dan untuk orang melayu pertama yg saya jumpa di malaysia, nak la jugak cakap melayuuuu'
'ooo yaa kaa... mai mana?' and that was the starting of a get-to-know-each-other session by series of question and stories...
Now pocket i have to end this karangan and continue it again next post.
i'm sorry for doing this. my reason would be simply 'lost my word describing my memory'.
eheh:)

its hard to talk to a total stranger dont u think?
am never good to talk to stranger even i'm having
people sitting on me side every flight i've taken.
how about u pocket?
Any common ice breaker?

Pocket said...

(Tipu tipu!!)
Inderawasih...
lived there for 2 years.

Ayaq masak said...

Hmmmm why do I get the feeling that Farid guy is you? *jongket kening*

Alaaa tsuzukanaidekudasai! Onegai? *mata anime*

fairuzniza said...

ehehe..

sy selalu kenal dengan different person everytime [mostly] sy keluar umah. setiap kali ada apa2, i will get to know persons around me. mebi i was born with mulut yg sangat peramah sampaikan boleh tegur semua orang kot. [tapi kene tunggu neves ilang dulu]

but it's fun though, utk kenal orang and break the ice [ups, suddenly i remember britney's song].

but yeah, everytime i did it, selalu je tak penah sempat mintak nomot tipon..wawawa..

bendul said...

hahaha.. btol la ayaq.. rasa macam pocket menyamar jer jadik farid tu.. uhuk uhuk..

Annaster said...

Hmm..
Talking to stranger?
Ok kot but still kena be careful cause skang nie bukan semua boleh dipercayai.

Me agak liat to talk to stranger or somehow people can say me sangat sombong OK.

Bukan apa. Cuma berhati2..

:D

~ everytime I naik flight, I will get to know new people. siap borak cam dah lama kenal. sedar2 jer dah sampai KB. hehehehe... tapi tue sesi ramah-pamah ngan perempuan jer la. kalo ngan laki, i mmg tak tegur nya. hehehehe....

adakah Farid itu Pocket? ~

filantera said...

waaaaaaaaa can wait the sequel of this:)

tgk lambang to be continued tingat gaban Z

Ayaq masak said...

kan bendul kannnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Puteri Ezza said...

Salam.

Long time no see. How are you?

Pocket said...

Ayaq,
wahahah... of all my karangan,
this is the first time someone
actually pointed out that farid was me.

No ayaq, farid is not me.
but i'm telling his experience like its mine,
cause u should have seen the way farid do his
storytelling
he's very detail in the little thing till
u can even see the colour of 'her' eyes
while hearing him talks of it.

FairuzNiza,
good for u to be able to talk to stranger.
i'm a bit crippled in those field.
if u'r talking about 18 words and finish,
that's a different thing.
'awie mai dak lagi?'
'tak mai lagi'
'tandaih kat maha ha?'
'nuu hujung nuu'
'ooo..ok makasih'
'samaaa...
but to actually know a person,
the past, the present, the future,
2 hour of waiting a delayed flight.. wahaha ..
here i am putting both of my hands up high, surrendering.:)

Anna,
yup!! that's definitely right.
have to choose the situation also.
If u'r walking alone in the dark of the night.
SOmeone approaches u asking for the time.
start running honey, definitely perampok

if u'r walking alone in an airport,
someone approaches u asking for the time.
start running honey, cause dat guy definitely up to no good. there's clock everywhere and still he's asking u? heeheh

basically we have to look at the condition also.

Amy,
wah, siap borak cam dah lama kenal yah...
good!! but usually girls and girls is less risk.
kalau ngan lelaki takkan tegur?
waaahhh... bagush bagush. Semua peminat Amy pas ni kena tegur amy ngan cara lain lah, tak leh la nak wat wat stumble upon amy in the plane. eheh

Tidak... seperti yang dah diterangkan kepada Ayaq, Farid itu bukan pocket..

Filantera,
heh, that's the thing, i usually dont do sequel.
but for this one i have to due to my vocab is just insufficient. wahahahah... actually i just dont know how to write jer :)

oshin pun tuleh gitu jgak.

Bendul,
dakara, chigau tte!!
hish, nak ber geng ngan ayaq lagi... huh!!
:)

PuteriEzza,
Lama Sunggoh kan, salam pengenalan kembali..

diya said...

erm.. same with diya, klw nak start cakap ngan strangers... sgt lah susah. kira mcm starting point tu kita diam jelah. tapi, bila org tu dh start tego.. habislah dieee. melayan diya pot pet lah jwbnya. hehe

purplechoc said...

kalau i senyum je :D
tengok keadaan dulu, kalau nmpk cm ramah then i pun akan ramah.
kalau tak, i seyap seribu bahasa la :D

Princess Liyana said...

it depends..kalau mereka sgtla ramah,princess ok je layannnn...
hehe,tp kalau dgn makcik2 princess masuk. bergossip jap..haha:p

Ayaq masak said...

Maa maa biarla bendul nak geng ngan aku..ahahaha

Sakki okane wo moratte, okane mochi ni natteshimatta. Wuhu! Pakcik kayo!

pandagumuk said...

inderawasih tu dimana kok?

biasenye org laen akan stat dulu tego.kalau nak harap gue yg tegor.mmg ampun la.hehe.i prefer watching n sengeh2 je.

Pocket said...

Diya,
heheh, so kalau dah start sembang tu memang tak berenti renti nyer type lah yek? eheh:D

PurpleC,
selalunya kalau u senyum tu,
no one will resist the temptation to ask ya
'hey lady u alone there?'

Princess,
Actually kan, kalau orang ramah,
kiter pun ramah..
tp nak mula jadi ramah tu yg problemnya tu... eheh:D

Ayaq,
aaaa sudah, tolong!! tolong!!
diorang berpakat dah, duk bergeng geng dah nii
huhuuu...

ikura gurai moratta?:)

Panda,
So basically u'll not be 'tegur'ing anybody lah... eheh:)

azie said...

depends. usually i won't be the first one to break the ice. but once we got closer, there will be tonnes of stories will be come out.

p/s: i'm an introvert

EpaL c0keLaT said...

Lor, nape nk smbung2...i nk bace cter penuh :|

Pocket said...

Azie,
Usually girls wont be the first one to break the ice, this is just merely due to girls suppose to be pemalu.. eheh, no offense.
which is better.
but just like 'her' in my story, once a spark of fire lit the gas,
it just blown up high and non stop of fire come bursting out :)

EpalC,
well there's quite a few reason for that...
1)the 2nd part is still unfinished.
2)i just simply dont have the time to spellcheck!:)
3)supposedly the story is better to be told in series. and i am trying my best to do so.
(I might fail.. but dont hate me for trying)

Ayaq masak said...

Pocket said...

Amy,
laaa... acaner la pocket nak wat nih haa...
Fariiiddd tolooong!!
hehehe, terpulanglah kepada pembaca budiman sekalian,
kalau nak andaikan farid tu pocket pun OK.
pocket hanya mampu menafikan tanpa bukti yang kukuh.
eheh:)

Ayaq,
huh, oleh kerana anda sedang bergeng ngan amy dan juga bendul, sila lah belikan mereka azuki danggo.
(bebola tepung ngan kuah kacang merah)
available at any sebunirebun, circleKay terutamanya kedai penjual danggo sendirian berhad:D

~ seriyes la ayaq, amy tak suka makan sushi2 tuh. pernah terbeluek makan sushi so sampai skang nampak jer apa2 makanan jepun terus geleng kepala.

nak wat cemana, dah dilahirkan jadi anak jati melayu. nasik jer makanan ku. :P ~

Pocket said...

actually nasik tu adalah sushi,
dan sushi tu adalah nasi,
so apa masaalahnya? hehehe...
tp nasi melayu taruk kuah atas
sushi taruk cuka dlm..so masam masam manis gitu he
