2019G Diary


Pegged by the Paint

Dated 2019G Jul 17 Wed 14 Z-Kaedah 1440H

It's very calm in TRG. Even the sea was almost wave-less. Weather-wise, it's sunny in the morning, and thus hot in the afternoon. At night the air always with dead. Sporadically, in the distant, the sound of thunder, empty. Infrequently, downfall late evening. The streets began displaying stalls of DURIAN, apparently from Johor, and Pahang. Local durian needed another few weeks to fill the stalls.

The house of W-Tengah painting tied us to the weekend. Waiting for the paints to arrive was one thing. Another was that the painters needed overseeing for the works with regards to the pattern and fine detail, etc. Nonetheless, Jul 12 Fri night, CG Jamil tagged Dato Muhatar along for a refreshment in DATARAN TEMESU.

NATURE WORKS WONDER, the coconut was split into two halves with a strong blow of a parang. It was given to the chicken to peck the kernel. In the while the half that contain the bud grew into a plantlet. But, fretizen missed the img message by adducing that the coconut plantlet was menaced by the feral.

Jul 6 Sat 3 Z-Kaedah 1440H, had a chance to stroll MANIR. And met Hamzah Ngah who said, while having roti-canai, never miss the Saturday Manir.

Jul 8 Mon, ZAM et al resumed painting of the house, starting from the living area where he left ca 2014 Jun. And would continue to the outside to finish off the whole house. ICI had since been out of production. JOTUN replaced.

Jul 9 Tue, had a night strolling spree in BANDAR while waiting for NA having a briefing among her BAR colleagues. Stopping at ROTI-KEK KT of Jln Sultan Omar, my favourite during UDM time in KOTA. Then strolling the DATARAN SHAH BANDAR where in the FLEA MARKET, the so-called DURIAN AUCTION was held. And finally in Pulau Kambing on the way home, a stop in BIG TREE STATION, seeing a former student operating her stall. My last encounter with her was in 2018 Oct 27 Sat in THE KITCHEN, thence she said in six months time she'll be on her own with a partner.

Jul 13 Sat drove up to Jerteh in WIRA with the MOWING accs, to see the orchard. The last time we dropped by, Jun 24, the durian was at 'monkey-head' size. Noted some had fallen, but almost all were premature. MOWED a bit, especially in the area of rubber trees to facilitate the tapper. Local mowermen were also hired.



It's July Now

Dated 2019G Jul 7 Sun 4 Z-Kaedah 1440H

It's the second half of 2019. The heat of Shawal is cooling off, to be slowly replaced by the EID QURBAN in ca six weeks time. Jul 4 Thu 1 Z-Kaedah 1440H, the media has covered the beginning of HAJ operation. The first flight KT01 had took off from KLIA. MALINI-HANIEF are due to check-in Jul 22 Mon. ADIKJO deferred the rayuan offer because the cost of the rayuan is more than twice that of the normal turn. The WUKUF is expected to be on Aug 10 Sat.

MADI's final touch was seen the next day, Jul 6 Sat, high up on the roof, at the ridges. Every pieces of the cove tiles were cemented in place, securing against the blowing of the monsoon.

Jul 2 Tue, NA took ASRI to the GATEWAY for a bowling spree, she said to regain her skill for the TRG BAR competition.

Jul 3 Wed, made a visit to TH in the Diamond-LOTA. It was so calm and peace d-stair, but apparently all the routine daily activities of the rakyat were done u-stair. Very crowded in the confined space which included the staircase. Just wonder why it didn't come to their mind to switch the floor so the the over flow could spill outside to the corridor especially the mothers with babies as young as three months old to open new accounts. What security?

Jul 4 Thu, drove for a quick 'scan' in U-MALAYA campus while delivering NA for her meeting in the LAW FAC. For the first time, I drove into the loop of the 3rd, 4th, 6th colleges, passing through the ARTS FAC on the left, and the SCIENCE FAC on the right, a building of which I remembered perhaps in 1972, of UKM era, in one of the lecture theatres, the ANGKATAN KAJIAN SAINS (ANGKASA) was launched during which students from the vicinity schools were invited. It published a Megazine, RINTISAINS for students to learn writing Science Articles for publication, with the cooperation of the Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. In 1972 - 1973 some of my writing were published in the megazine. Other places then in 1971 - 1974, U-Malaya was just as familiar as in U-KM, my Alma Mater. Masjid Ar-Rahman stood to the test of time. U-Malaya, although old, is still an elegant IPT. It had been holding its integrity over all challenges to change it. Unlike other later IPT which were all 'damaged' soon after establishment by either political menacing, or by personal ego-ing.

Jul 5 Fri 2 Z-Kaedah 1440H, a quick visit to Putrajaya after Jumaat in MPI, for an open house of NA's KIK buddy.

Followed by a DRVTGG with NA for usual matters in TRG. It was quite a traffic in KL in the evening. Waze made twice detour along MRR2. Once by TBS at Sg Besi. And another to Ampang Jaya between Pandan Indah and Flamingo junction. Even after Gombak toll, the traffic was rather viscous. And it was a congestion, from Paya Serai, for the Bentong toll. Only after Karak toll, the speed could be attained. But the RR and LB pitstops were swarmed by motorists stopping for a breath of fresh air. It was near m-night when we arrived HOME in W-TENGAH. Noted traces of MADI's last touch. The MIXER still in, the excess cement laid uncovered, and the water tank was left untended.
