123. OldStuff


The other day i've read filantera's
post by the title, Cinta 101.
The story was simple yet...
i am still touched by the story and
i know everyone will...
(Go on and read it for your self to know what i mean)

Pocketeers, have u ever own something that
have been your possession for a long time?
And i mean long time as if more than 5 years.
Its hard for a pocketeers who still not old
enough to own a MyCard.
But most of u are more than that arent u?
so i bet most of u have your dear...
token of life,
item of memory,
a horcrux as if part of your life is recorded
inside the item.

I have a dear girl back in the kampong who still have her 'baby'
as she calls it, a cheap fabric sew to the shape of a rabbit,
stuffed with cotton.
(What's the general word for teddy bear? nuigurumi in japanese... but in english?)
It is hers for 14 years already and she's taking SPM next year.
basically its her bantal busuk lah... cant sleep without it. huhuuuuuu

I guess it comforts us to own something and never letting it go.(Same with luv?)
I myself own a plate bought for 400 yen per 6 pcs set. (That's Somewhat 14ringgit)
Now i have the last one. Ounis and GaijinSan broke one. (Or was it two?)
It was bought in the year of 1998. So now its nearing its 10th years with me.
Hope i can still eat from it on my 60th birthday:)
Can still remember i called up Ayie and Yan to my place
serving them with nasi ayam on the very same plate.
Back then it was still with its family. A family of six.

And not to forget my dear belt.
I bought it for 7000 yen. Quite dear for a belt bought with
my first salary working in Gangga Indian Curry House in Fukui.
it was 2002.. someone else bought the same belt.
I heard she's still wearing hers now when she's teaching
somewhere down south.
I'm at the last hole of the belt.
I need to work out more so that I can still wear
this belt attending to my daughter's wedding ceremony heheh:)

do u have any pocketeers?
a plate maybe,
a red ribbon maybe,
a belt maybe,
a cooking book maybe,
a bantal mucuk maybe,
a blog perhaps?

~ rasanya, my collection of baju kurung. since 1997 until now.. still boleh pakai and ketat skit la tang bontot tuh. hahahaha.... tapi, tak dek makna nya nak pakai. design dah lapuk dek zaman dah. so, just simpan dlm almari jer la.

rasanya, yg still pakai bertahun2 nih adalah jam yang amy pakai skang. my parents yg bagi. tak silap since 2004 kot. dah 4 tahun, jam tuh still berkilat-kilat. sometime people ingat i pakai gelang.. sayang jam tuh even kena kutuk ngan a few of my frens kata jam tuh dah ketinggalan zaman. amy peduli apa.... ~

Ayaq masak said...

Pocket said...

Sepet,
Terimakasih for your kunjungan balas.
Datang lah lagi :) heh

Saloma,
owh!! kain telekung ker?
aduhai.. teramat la mendalam kesan nyer tuh.
tp kalau kain 12 tahun tu,
mahu koyak jgak tu. tp mesti saloma jaga bebaik kan?

Bendul,
ooiihh!! seluar tracksuit yang samo ngan pinggan ku!?
hohooo... tu kira lama lah tu bendul, and u kept it in a good condition? i mean.. ten years of fabric material should be koyak rabak tu.

ko taruk dalam frame jer ker? hahahah


Yan,
err, punya la insignificant nyer pinggan tu kan.

eh!! pocket tak ingat citer tu!!
pocket ada ingat kasi belt kat orang.
tp tak ingat sapa..(Sapa lagi kan..)
humm.. humm.. sihat lagi ker tak
talipinggang tu yer?

MummyS,
tak der nyer tukar add lah.
same as always.
nanti kalau dah kaya sikit mungkin
nak tukar ker dotcom...
but not now.
RM tak cukup lg heheheh

Amy,
Wah!! collection from 1997!!?
mesti banyak kan, yerlah.. pompuan dibenarkan memiliki baju lebih dari lapan pada satu masa.

tp design lapuk dek zaman tu camana?
basically pocket tak pernah tau
feshen baju kurung so...
cutting nyer berbeza ker?
background nyer berbeza?

Jam kan... jam memang buleh tahan lama.
kalau jam mahal mahal.. lagi lah boleh tahan lama.
endah kan diorang tu, selagi buleh pakai, ... pakai jer amy. sentimental value tuu:)

Ayaq,
woh!! plastic ker besi? dulu pocket ada pensil case yg besi tu, tak sempat lama... dak kepek.. heheheh

bantal mucuk!!? huhuuuu... so bold of u to admit it.
anak manja jgak ayaq nii :) heheheh

NurmalaM,
wahahahah, buku lirik kan..
macam pocket pernah tgk bebudak pompuan dalam kelas dulu duk kumpul n wat compilation.
That was back in 1993 tuh...
cut and paste from majalah.
gambo artis kecik besor ...
heheheh:)

ada bantal busuk yang berbau wangi. warna merah, penuh peta tapi dicover dengan sarung biru polka dot putih renda2 ditepi.

tapi bantal tu mula jadi bantal busuk sejak ai masuk hostel, bukan dari kecik. masa umur 15 thn. mebi to seek comfort sebab mak abah takde di sisi:-(

sampai la ni masih bawak ke universiti. nanti dah kawen pun nak bawak jugak,keh keh keh

'ni gambar nenek dedulu'
'waaa... ni zaman 2D photo dulu nuuu'
'ni tiket bas masa nenek duk gi ke Beseri dulu'
'eh dulu kena bayar ker naik bas nek?'
