377. Lipas

Farid moved to a new house, a terrace with no stairs.
He was so happy about his new house, the wife too.
They bought all the required things in the house.
Furniture here and there..
Curtains with those fancy railings , pole and rings.
Kinda remind me of that pondan tailor who turns out
to be a great kungfu master in stephen chow's
kungfu hustler.



'Serious cantik gelang, bli mana beb?'
'haa.. ni custom made beb, tak jual punyaa.'


As a test to the newly wed,
it seems like that place is swarming with lipas.
So bad that there was nothing safe left uncovered.
A lipas at the back of every door and shelf,
Lipas running here and there,
sleeping with lipas jogging across the belly button.
It was the worst condition imaginable.

Oh they did try to exterminate the pest by themself,
(The cant afford the Exterminator so..)
They've tried everything..
Kept the place clean,
Daun pandan for the scent,
Cat to eat the lipas,
Frog to scare them,
but none prevail.

Depressed with his failure Farid buttoned up
his pagoda and went to seek his neighbour,
hoping for tips.
hoping for their kindness.
But to his dismay, they turned him down,
regardless of the neighbours floor was 'lipas'less
No lipas scent around. He even went for a chitchat
in the kitchen hoping to see any lipas's eggs but
none found.
They told him that they did nothing about the lipas,
for them lipas was never an issue.
in aching ears he listened to their lies,
Smiled and nodded.
He knew it! there got to be something!

Chin down to his chest, eyes to the floor,
he went back and sleep the night off with lipas
licking his lips for any trace of food.
Poor farid.

That was the story farid told me...
and he finishes his story with a complain..
'aku bukan apa pocket, aku cuma nakkan keadilan,
kalau ada cara tu, tak yah la buat kan..
kita share la lipas tu sama sama...
kot kot la 50% lipas aku buleh gi umah depa..
baru la adil n saksama..
baru la masyarakat berjiran, tak gitu?'
he said with his serious face like he meant it.


Eh? silap kot tu farid...
silap tu...
