...Rooftop Also Can Do.

The Y-Factor's gone. I mean, that dominant male fish in the pond is no more. Some 2,3 days back I found him floating and picked up his longer than my index finger lifeless body and buried him in one of emak's plants. Can't figure what happened to him though I do have a wild guess. With more than 20 female fishes in his harem, the poor fellow might have died from physical exhaustion. But, what a way to go!

Anwyay, I bought an assortment of young male fishes, in hope they'll grow up as friends and enjoy the neighbourhood. Seem to work out fine for now. Late yesterday afternoon, I saw one of those males chasing after an albino female molly, while another looks like getting chummy with a female swordfish. be young and in love, they must think that's heaven already. That is, if they can think to such extent. Maybe, in a way, it is better that way. I mean, look at the comic strip below.

The young kid is so lovestruck that he drove around the neighbourhood where the girl of his adoration lives. I mean, its like crazy that someone would do such things. But then again, there have been worse cases. Perhaps, the warm feeling inside a guy would put him into an overdrive which would either make or break him. I don't know. But I really really think its crazy.

I admit to having read many actual accounts where the presence of a woman in a man's life could spur him to greater heights. And I admit to feeling warm and mushy reading all about it, just as I did when reading about Cikgu's, Doc TA's, and Pak Mior's anniversary. I mean wow! Off course, there also real life stories that portray the negative side. But hey! If you chose to look at things negatively, then all you see is negative. Personally to me, I would like to see the positive in almost everybody. Perhaps, the best marriage recorded ever was the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. and Siti Khadijah. It is said in many narrations of the Hadith that Siti Khadijah (r.a.) stood by the Prophet s.a.w. in hardships and was a pillar of strength to the Prophet s.a.w. up to her last breath.

When I followed my friend to JAKIM some weeks back, the Ustazah said that the bonding of a couple in marriage is meant to complement each other. Hmm...I never thought about it that way before that. And that friend I was accompanying, well, I met him several days back and he looked like he was heads over heels with a girl somewhere. He's been jabbering, smiling, laughing, and singing all by himself last I saw him. Crazy dude! I mean, if I were to be like him, I might find someone stepping, stomping and jumping all over my poor left foot just like it's a piece of wood in a ceremonial dance somewhere. Ouch!

I mean, love can be good and it can also be bad. Good, because it makes you feel all warm inside and gives you the spur to reach the greater heights you have always dreamed of. Bad, well, because it makes can make you do crazy stuff like that friend of mine did up there, and in the comic strip where the boy drove around the neighbourhood just to get a glimpse of the girl! Crazy, I tell you.

By the way, I may be experiencing some minor case of amnesia of late. There have been times I suddenly find myself driving around aimlessly. Like yesterday, perhaps after passing the same signboard somewhere in Ulu Subang Jaya for the 10th time! Then I manage to snap out of it when a car rudely honked me from behind. Only then I realise the area look familiar. Oh well, perhaps I can attribute it to a Malay saying: "Tak nampak orang, nampak genting rumah pun jadi lah."

Salam Pak Bilal Shahrir,

Hey, as we all know, I’m in a relationship and blabla shit but if I’m given the chance to be stuck in a remote island with 20 chicks (fishes), I’d jump on the first plane available. At this rate my hormone is raging, I doubt I’ll end up like the poor fish. Man-man liau…I’ve got all the time in the world.

Ok, back to reality. Even one chick is quite a handful. The plan and strategy is, stick with her for the rest of my life!

Eh shah, aquarium ke kolam? Kura2 takde?

Being in love is the best part of our life. Enjoy it while it lasts.

tokasid said...

Salam Shah;

Ahh..those fishes. I forgot to ask you about taking care of fishes when we met.Maybe next time.I have a huge problem with my goldfishes. 5 out of 7 died!I'm not sure if its heart attack or brain haemrrhage or heartache.LOL!

I don't blame you for driving around Ulu SJ till your tank dried up. I've been in that situation before. I know if possible you wouldn't mind sleeping in the car 150m away, as long as yu can see the roof,right? You have sepurnama to do that.LOL!

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Kerp,

Hey bro, if you want the fishes and chicks as in young chickens, be my guest. Me, I'll take the ladies :) got that right, my man! The way I see her with you, aku pun naik jeles! Oops!

Kolam fibre apaentah, I don't know lah. And, no kura kura lah. If I have a real kolam, then I sure would like 2 kura kura.

Kata Tak Nak said...

To be in love is to not want to close your eyes and lose sight of her but to be loved is to physically touch heaven.

cakapaje said...

Salam Pak Zawi,

Ah yes, I very much agree with you. InsyAllah, I intend to make it last...only if its requited lah. Sigh.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Let me put it this way.
I like to love but I love to be loved.

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Doc,

But Doc, how could you have an odd number of fishes? That one sure a case of love-haxagon murder case. Must get CSI to investigate :)

Sepurnama...tu yang den sedih. But as they say, absence will make the heart grow fonder, insyAllah :)

And, am glad you went through it already and understand how crazy some dude in Kota Damansara can be, lol! Thanks Doc!

cakapaje said...

Salam Cikgu,

Oooh! Both your comments prove you are a romantic guy! But I like the first a whole lot! Hmmm...if 'nobody' reads your comment, I think I want to borrow it :) Thanks Cikgu.

bergen said...

It's a good thing.

cakapaje said...

Salam Bergen,

Hey bro, I truly would like to believe it too...because it sure feels good :)

Bebee said...

Love is a many splendoured thing
It's the april rose
that only grows
in the early spring...
It's a nice song but don't know the rest of it...Pls don't mind me, i memang suka menyampok:)

cakapaje said...

Salam Bebee,

Nice of you to drop by, thank you. And no, you are not menyampok-ing at all, believe me.

As for the song, it was my favourite tune on the piano. Unfortunately due to years of not having one to practice on, I have lost what little I had. But thank you for reminding me of that song...I do love it still. Believe it was Frank Sinatra.

siti khad said...

wow, u play the piano.

cakapaje said...

Salam Siti,

Ssshhhh....tiam tiam. Like I mentioned, I'm like totally rusty with fingers stiff as nails.

So...ssshhhh! :)
