Stranger On Ganu's Shores

Well, not exactly. I've been there countless times and one of my earliest childhood memory was when we traveled from KB to Rantau Abang to watch the now nearly extinct Giant Leatherback Turtles(on our shores only). Another, was when we moved to KL from KB, spending a night at one of the many beaches there; but where, I do not know. Still, it was great to be back in Ganu.

Ok, no stories for now - will do so until I downloaded all the pics and till Azman email his to me. For the moment, enjoy the music and the lyrics below. But before that, thank you Cikgu and Doc TA for your concern and communiques. And thank you too shirzad for calling.

Stranger On The Shore - Acker Bilk
Here I stand, watching the tide go out
So all alone and blue
Just dreaming dreams of you

I watched your ship as it sailed out to sea
Taking all my dreams
And taking all of me

The sighing of the waves
The wailing of the wind
The tears in my eyes burn
Pleading, "My love, return"

Why, oh, why must I go on like this?
Shall I just be a lonely stranger on the shore?

The sighing of the waves
The wailing of the wind
The tears in my eyes burn
Pleading, "My love, return"

Salam Cikgu,

Thank you. And yes, I think Idris is still crying. On Sunday morning - our last day there - the papers announced that the Oil Royalty will be returned to the Ganu State Gomen, Thus, a new Malay proverb was born: Sudah jatuh, ditimpa tong minyak! ;)

And yes, no 4th least not in Ganu ;)
