Tawaf kampung etc etc..

April 30, 2006

The week has passed.

One of the day which I felt like I want to get away for a while to inhale fresh air. Called adik N. Said that I want to lepak in her room. I drove my car half way then I stopped at Sport center to
find out schedule for new Pilate session. Too late they had started the session yesterday. Opppsss…I missed the boat. So I decided to join the drop in class of Equilibrium combining Pilate with free style yoga, whatever it is.

I continued driving to adik N’s place. The weather was so wonderful that day and many people having fun for outdoor’s activities. Instead of going to adik N’s room I decided to turn back and parked my car at my flat. Called adik N about my change of plan. Changed into comfortable outfit then started to brisk walk. Fresh air inhaled.

Just followed my feet. Enjoyed myself to notice plants, trees, houses, flowers, people, building,
mountains, voices of school children playing football and land scaping within compound of each houses. Brought my camera along in case I found interesting spot to snap. Stopped over to see a public library. Then continued walking around village. It was already half past seven and it didn’t get dark until half past eight. As I saw several interesting spots to snap, then I realized that I don’t have the memory stick inside the camera. I left it at home. What a joke to carry camera everywhere and not able to use it. I laughed at myself! These pics are my collection earlier but not in village where I stay.

After almost 1 hour “tawaf kampong”, I stopped over at the small shop. Only managed to pick-up one magazine as the shop was ready to be closed. Walked home and do some chores. I slept like a baby that night and felt fresh waking up in the morning to start my day.


On Thursday night I joined the drop in class for exercise. As expected, I ended up having acking muscle every where due to not having proper session of exercise for quite sometimes. But my mind feel very fresh and rejuvenate. Doing it on my own is not the same as I could not be sure if the movement is really correct. Might end-up having to twist wrong muscle!

Last night, everyone left early. Very quiet in the building. Maybe everyone was out under the sun. After listening to the new student, my office mate (confused, frustrated and angry with things didn’t work and no clear direction, stress plus all other typical symptom) and help him to talk it out and get his thinking right, I left office early. Called adik N again if she wants to go out. We went out to watch movie “Ice Age- meltdown”. Nice and hilarious movie for children and adult to watch. Loads of laugh, smile and some part is sad also.

After movie, we went to supermarket. My main intention was to get several sachets of beetroot seed to mail to a beloved friend back home. Previously I didn’t know this plant can help to improve body immune system and also help in preventing the big C. The beloved friend will try to plant it preferably in green house. I hope the seed will get there for her soon.

Adik N and I reached home to have dinner. We ate and talked. Sent her back to her room after mid night. I came back home, slept on my favourite sofa in the living room. Woke up to begin another day.

the bummer about using digital cameras nowdays are either battery realted or memory limitations... maybe not polaroid, but it sure beats old fashioned film photography...

I could do with some exercising and walking too. Have been planning to go walking with Cik Abang but just could not go out. Even at 6:00pm it is still VERY Very hot now...

AM, the most annoying thing is realising that the camera is not recharged. I now carry two -which explains the big bag and also am thinking of getting MP3 with camera as well.

izhal, yup I agree with you. Sometimes I do carry the traditional camera using film.

Maklang, kat Kerteh lagilah panas tepi laut! I did not had any brisk walk for ages. Sampai sakit badan sana sini after that day.:-))

Kakteh, yup sometimes I carry 2 also! Always have problem with battery. Snap here and there, not even 1 day, battery is gone...

Lovely entry.. and I love the scottish country. Pity about the memory stick though ( even though the name is so suggestive that you should memorise to carry your stick, it didn't stick he he).
Thanks AM

Annckay...I am trying to picture all positive mental attitude every morning as I wake-up. Pray that it will go on like this no matter what happen!


Le Count, haaa.. tu lah kalau lama tak pakai camera tu, dah lupa the memory stick was left out for pic download. Anyway, tawaf kampung is a good exercise. Will definately do it again and make sure this time it stick...hehehe..

I still owe you the morning side and Penicuik pictures. Will definately get it for you. Dunbar is a bit far for me to drive. Been there in 2003. Maybe I still hv the pic.
