Farah M's Pre Birthday Celebration

19:38




Farah's birthday falls on 16th May. Sadly, we were very busy on that particular week. I was busy with Mini Hammadang for Taekwondo while Syi and Asiah were busy with their schedules. To make it become more complicated, Farah was busy with her zumba competition too. So, there were lots of plan and lots of changing date occurred. 

At last, the decision was made at 7pm on the same night we wanted to surprise her. I caught the train and reached Mid Valley just nice after they bought the present and dinner. Then we went to Bangsar to buy pavlova. The time was just nice for us to arrive at Shah Alam and Farah to finish her zumba practice. With the help from Qilut, I managed to know Farah's whereabouts and made plan with Qilut to surprise her.

At first, Farah's facial expression was very funny. She thought that we forgot her birthday because it was a day earlier. We just had some chit chat and drinks because it was late. Fuh! Luckily, I could celebrated her birthday this year.

Supermarket Stranger

14:09

I am learning to be a good woman. I have to admit, I am entering the stage where I am considered as a woman. Luckily, I am around three lucky souls who are responsible in teaching me to be a good woman. They teach me how to take care the household and the most important thing is, cooking skill.

Last Wedenesday, we went for a groceries shopping. Guess what? I have a crush on a completely stranger. Wait! I am not an easy woman. To be fair, let me describe this lucky guy.

He is not handsome. His skin is dark. I do not care about look, because I do not like handsome guy to be my spouse. Handsome guys can just be my friends.

So, what is so good about him? The way he tolerates with his mother and sister. His mother is such a chatty person which is same as me. He answered everything that his mother asked and he helped with everything. A man who is good in doing groceries shopping is such a turn on. He is nice towards his sister and they speak good English. Bonus point for him!

But, I know that is the last time I see him. May Allah bless your soul dear stranger.

Platonic Relationship

08:58

I guess,  I have been reading too much novels which the main plot is the friendship between a guy and a girl and then suddenly turns into love. It is either one of them will slip away or both of them will feel the same. Well,  they are not having a normal relationship,  because they are bestfriend.

So, I am influenced by those novels. I decided to end my platonic relationship because I don't want to be the one who slips away and finds a dead end.I am friendly with boys but to be close with a guy is not my forte. I feel guilty towards my future spouse. I don't want to share too much thing with a guy that may be a stranger later.

It is easy for him to have a girl bestfriend because he is used to it but not me. I have a lot of good friends from opposite gender but not a bestfriend.The decision was made and everything has changed. It is not easy to bump into someone that is used to be your bestfriend without having this awkward feeling and it is not easy to ask help from someone who is used to be your bestfriend.

I am adjusting. Help me, please?

Cooper-K, RodieR

Kisah ini dekat pada diri saya. Saya juga punyai teman rapat daripada kaum yang bertentangan tetapi atas sebab saya sendiri, saya mula menjauhkan diri untuk kebaikan bersama. Saya harap kisah kami nanti tidak akan jadi serumit kisah di antara Mia dan Cooper. Kerana, saya rela untuk menahan sakit itu daripada terus tersasar.

Bukan senang untuk berkawan baik dengan jantina berlawanan. Fitnah mudah timbul dan banyak perkara tak elok daripada yang eloknya. Jadi, saya fikir kalau saya teringin sangat nak ada kawan baik yang berjantina lelaki, baiklah saya tunggu bakal suami yang entah wujud ke tidak itu jadi teman baik saya, seperti Ibu dan Ayah.

Melalui Cooper, saya rasa saya banyak kena tegur secara tidak langsung. Teguran yang paling berbekas, apabila Mia terfikir akan amalan-amalan yang dia buat hanyalah amalan wajib. Saya juga rasa, saya hanya melaksanakan yang wajib sahaja. Al-Quran dah jarang selak, banyak selak benda lain pula. Puasa dah jarang buat, hasilnya badan pun naik dalam masa yang sama.

Selain itu, tabiat Mia yang gemar menyumpah seranah juga saya ada. Walaupun saya menggunakan Bahasa Inggeris apabila mengeluarkan perkataan yang tidak elok kerana pada saya bunyinya kurang menyengat, namun meyumpah seranah adalah satu perkara yang tidak elok. Apatah lagi buat seorang perempuan, macam yang Cooper cakap, "A lady who curse, is a cursed lady."

Saya tahu, saya sedang membuka pekung di dada, sebab itu la kami pelajar sastera tidak digalakkan untuk membuat Reader-Response Review, sebab orang boleh tahu kita ni macam mana. Saya beli Cooper ni pun sebab saya baca kisah ini mengenai dua sahabat baik dan saya juga pernah ada sahabat baik. Saya nak melihat pandangan Rodier mengenai hubungan sahabat baik antara jantina berlawanan dan apabila saya lihat di halaman Facebook Rodier, saya juga mengalami masalah yang sama yang pernah Rodier alami. 

That connection makes me read this novel.



Goodbye Cooper.
