433. Teloq Hang!!


Farid smiling to himself as he walks home from pasar malam,
today he bought a slightly bigger eggs for the family,
Its nuttin much actually, the usual eggs he bought
for the family is those that sells for 260 per ten pcs.
Today he bought a slightly bigger one. 350per ten pcs.
His son's birthday is around the corner.
Bet this eggs would taste better in cakes.


Today he sold off his cendawan a bit more than usual
hence the extra money for the eggs. He started to notice
the big changes in his life after he quit smoking, extra
cash to buy popia basah for the wife and a whole chicken
instead of the usual half chicken he use to supply to his freezer.


'assalamualaikum'
After a while he heard foot steps stomping
the papan floor squeaking here and there..
'waalaikumsalam, abang dah balik,
awi dok main tunggu abang tadi,
dia tidoq dah. banyak jual ari ni bang?'
'habih! nii haa abang bli teloq'
'la teloq hari tu ada lagi.. eh popiaaa!!'
'heheh' farid is smiling from ear to ear,


he knows his wife Ima luv popia basah..
its nice to see her face shining with
happiness. Even if its just for 3 nights
per week. The pasar malam night
'bagi ima basuh teloq ni dulu sat na'
as ima finishes off washing the eggs,
she let it dry and arranging it nicely
in the eggs compartment inside the fridge.
And then she noticed..

'Eh besaq nya teloq?' the usual eggs falls
right down on the trays floor. This one floats.
'abang bli yg besaq sikit, buleh buat kek untuk awi'
'la selama ni abang duk beli yang kecik saja ka?'
farid hugs his wife from behind as she is
comparing from today's eggs and the one
from last week.


He couldnt face her,
hoping his hug can tell her something.
'hooh' a feeling of shame sinks in,
disgusted with his poverty.
'so selama ni dok kata duit habih,
tapi dok beli teloq murahan,
lebihnya dok simpan buat apa!?
abang duk melencong ke mana?
baik abang cakap!'
she turned around to face him,
one slap to the shoulder
'orang suruh beli teloq..
dok isap rokok lah tu!?
yang abang selalu beli tu berapa?
yang ni berapa? jangan nak tipu ima,
ima tau la! abang isap rokok lagi kan?




loh! kesitu plak?
Have pity for me sayang,
for i am just in love with u,
Forgive me sayang, for these two hands
earns only this much,
Believe in me sayang,
i'll even stop breathing for u,
Have faith in me sayang,
we'll work things out for awi...








...was one of the story a friend told me.
sedih kan.. life is hard people, maybe
not for us, but sure is for others ^^

huhu garangnya wife.....i think she should just accept it as it is..org dah beli, why don't just feel grateful and stop whining? huhu. but if it's true that the money gone from something worthless, that would be inappropriate too..hmmm life..

syabab phm pe yg Farid hadapi.. sometimes life doesnt look so simple... life can be so complicated we try to give the best for someone we luv without tellin them the circumtances becos we dont want to burden them so as long as they r happy we rather feel alone the burden on our shoulders than making them worry... but sometimes they might not understand why we did for wat we did.. life jz not so simple to certain community...huhu while others r happy with luxurious and money there r some of us who jz wait for time whether tomorrow still can feed their family o not..huhu

uhuhuhu...

husband tu kena kerja keras lg kot nak dpt gaji lebih..;p

littledolphin said...

this is surely one of your touching post. ;')

well the husband tried to quit and he really quit right?he wanted to change,and that is the most important thing of all.

mungkin dulu tak dapat nak beli yg besar,tapi sekarang dah boleh kan?

i'm sure the wife is disappointed with her husband for using the extra money to spend on something like cigarettes,but he does deserve a chance .let bygones be bygones.
