Feel So Good.

Sungai Bakap (old town) - main street.

We're walking down your one-street town laughing and giggling and feeling good on a hot afternoon when the sun must be a great ball of fire to everyone but us. No I don't feel nothing because the sun is just fine by me looking nice and pretty like orange sorbet; cool and easy and very nice. I know this is very nice for sure because when you are with me every thing's cool and easy and excellent; and I'm feeling like how a guy should feel walking down a one-street town with you looking oh-so-pretty-and-beautiful that got me thinking I must have died and went to heaven because I've promised myself, if I made it to heaven all I want is someone just like you. I've got you right here with me walking down your one-street town and as long as I am with you this is heaven enough for me.

You ask how do I like this side of town compared with the other side that's new and modern? I said how do I answer a question like that when I'm too busy imagining you in your school uniform walking down this side of town on a hot afternoon with your friends from the Methodist of Nibong Tebal. Why would you imagine me like that? Because don't you find it amazing that at that moment it never crossed your mind that one day you'd be walking down this street with me? You said; yes it never crossed my mind. There you go, I said, not knowing exactly what I meant by that but that doesn't really matter because I'm feeling so good that I don't feel the heat of the midday sun because the sun is the orange sorbet that got me feeling cool and nice and easy.

You must know by now that every thing's nice and cool and easy when I'm with you which is why I am not thinking about tomorrow when I've gotta to take a ride back to the city feeling pretty sad inside because it'll be a week before I see you again. You said we've gotta do what we've gotta do for now; until you can convince your mom to come live with us in the city. I said you do that because in the city where I live it is a town with a lot of streets, not like your little town here. You laugh so hard that got me feeling so good that I could have died and went to heaven. Yes, next week I won't be riding the bike. Yes, next week I'll drive the pick up truck. Yes, ma'am. I'm listening. Yes, ma'am, I won't bawak laju-laju.

Until next week.

Pak Bergen,

To see heaven in wild flower,
and the world in a grain of sand....

Treasure the moment forever Pak, because we never know what comes next.

All the best.

Always love a good story.. finding a romantic dude like you is like searching a needle in a haystack *swoon*

I used to live at Sg Bakap when I was a pre-schooler,my dad was a teacher at the primary school there. We actually lived in one of those shop houses you posted here.

Salaam Sir,

I hope you're doing fine. I miss your writings. I just finished re-reading your entry 'How much for the Heaven'. It is still my favourite entry of yours :) I even shared it on my Facebook during my first time reading it (without your permission, but I put a link to your blog. erm).

Take care, Sir. :)
