514. TheRedBoat


Pocketeers,
This was suppose to be a short story,
But I've lost my quota by my third point.
And so here i am elaborating it to 3 post.
A short story...
A Metaphoric story,
I was not into fishing,
I dont own a boat,
I did not sleep with the officials to get
along with my business. (Although I wish
that I am, considering she's comel enough
of course)

Right after my SPM, I got involved in
fishing business. 20K for a proper
floating vessels and a 30 horsepower
engine can do fine in the business of
bringing people into the mid of the sea.
Waiting for fishes to catch, Hoping that
they get the biggest catch there is to
brag with people by framing the photo onto
the living room wall.

You got to be good though, foreseeing what
fishes to look for, where to look for and
strategy to get those fishes.
Not to forget how to detect 'PakYa' (Buaya)
since 40% of the customer will be going
to fish for Udang Galah.

In the business, I got along with people
here and there, some were nice to me not
to forget those who envy me,
Well my boat is red.. but that was not the point.
My boat was better then theirs.
So I can go further.
Hence... a lot more customer calling in.
Usually its the tiang in penang bridge,
small small undisturbed island..
Muka Head or teluk bahang...
Plus, I can speak in english a lot better
then the other 'Tekong' back then.
So my target customer is a wee bit more
then theirs.
(Jadi belajo la cakap omputeh yer adik adik)

I got lonely though, no one want to be friends
with the new blood. I ate alone for the first
three month until I come to know Farid...
The guy from Bagan, a local guy who also own
his own boat. We were always together when we're
not bringing people to their fishing spot.
And when we do, we send our customer in the morning,
we got back to the port for lunch together..
Somehow we clicked like the battery cover clicking
to the back of your astro remote.
No rattle, no gap... just simply Clicked.

Most of the time we would go fishing both of us,
and during those fishing trip that we spill out
everything.  Its kinda inevitable actually,
two guys sitting alone waiting,
its nuttin much.
Our previous scandal..
My licence is already overdue,
but sleeping with the PIC made me tru.
His  regretted sin that he did back in
his younger days.
My debt with Along was the reason
I went on the hiding,
Cheat-trick in fishing location.
..and even stories about families.
Ohh.. the whole 1001 nights.

He was good to me, I got personal with him
to the extend of sleeping in his place
whenever I'm too tired to go back home.
His wife and son were also nice to me...
made me felt like I got myself a family.
Even if he was an ajnabi from work.

I guess that is it with us and work,
we start on a job... all lonely.
Looking for the one to 'Click'.
The work place seems friendlier right after,
and work would seems a lot easier then.
So good luck to the lady who got her job
in a logistic company recently. I hope u get
along with others well. Main baik baik tau!
jangan gaduh gaduh :D

carik somebody yang boleh click dengan kita memang susah. nak nak pulak if kita mula-mula masuk sorang-sorang. takde sape yang kita boleh pandang and sengih siket sebab sama-sama budak baru. berfikir nak menyibuk ke, nak jadik kera sumbang sampai ada orang tegur. atau worse, sampai dituduh sombong. aish.. nak mula buat kawan memang payah!

"main baik baik tau, jangan gaduh gaduh" oh..how i miss to hear that from my mum! :)
