The Surroundings of My Little Hut

Many asked what would I do to my house when I leave for Qatar. The answer is, I will just leave it the way it is. I am not renting it nor am I selling it. For I need a place to stay when I come back to Malaysia later. Plus I still have some junks in the house and I don't think I like the idea of people using those. My parents will probably come once in a while to see the house.

I will certaily miss my house particurlaly when it gets hot in Qatar later. I live right next to the Air Hitam Forest Reserve where the forest is semi dense. The area is cool and is always foggy especially when it rains.

When it stop raining, and little sun peaked out..I would walk around or linger with the kids. It would be very pleasant indeed. Ada ala-ala macam kat UK gitu except that no asap keluar dari mulutlaaa.



This is a picture of somebody else's house. My house is not photogenic enough to be shown on the web.

The thing about living next to the forest is of course the monkeys. Those little rascals were always up to something at our houses. Ni yang jenis kera ni. Small ones. They can slip through the grills even. We have donated them jemput-jemput, limau mandarin and bananas, of course unwillingly. We had to tell off our neighbour's maid who thinks feeding monkey is cute and very animal lover act. But this, as a matter of fact, will only encourage them to make a city out of the neighborhood's area.



Jom take a walk at the alley behind my house. Can you see the fence? That's the border of the housing area and the forest. There is also a monsson drain there. During heavy rain, you can hear the rush of water and imagine that you live near the river.



The signboard says, HUTAN SIMPAN KEKAL - DILARANG MASUK. I don't know how kekal is this kekal. There were talks of Anak Toyo tu nak buat development kat sini. After the Bukit Cerakah story, things have been quiet. We'll see how far this forest can be there.

Anyway, besides monkey, someone stumbled across a female phython sometime ago. A real big one. I think it's the size of my thigh. And my thighs are big. Some Indonesian renovation guys beat it up to my horrors. The bomba pun satu cekadak. When we called, they said, tak ada sapa ke yang nak ular tu. Can you handle it. When they came 2 hours later and the phython was beaten up to near death, they told us this is an extinct species. I was pregnant with Zachary and people were giving me strange tales about this cruel death of the boa constrictor. I pity the phython. I think it was trying to grab one of the monkeys and stumbled down the cliff and couldn't make it up.

Anyway because of this I tak jadi nak buat little Bali kolam with fish and all. Tak rela saya kalau kolam tu nanti ada ular melingkar pulak kang.



This is Haziq and his best friend, Omar, our neighbour's son. Ni betul-betul belakang rumah I.

I am going to miss my little hut, with or without the little kolam bali.

I have a vacation home somewhere in the east, mind you it is very stressful on the first day when you arrive as there are many things to do,sweeping,mopping, changing the bed cover etc,i am grateful that my husband and kids give their helping hand. If you have somebody looking after it okle.

Dia tukarnya kunci tuu tambah lagi satu hal..Hmmmmmp

Qatar pun lebat masyuuk kaaan.

bergen said...

Enjoy your stay in Qatar. Nice place, good food, nice autumn weather. Don't know if they've got sandstorm in March. Pretty women. The Qatari dagger is a good souvenir.

Enjoy it, don't think of home while you are there. It's a different country, different place. Home will always be home, nothing to miss about.

elisataufik said...

I too miss my 'rumah buruk'.. can't wait to get home in 2 weeks.
Alhamdulillah, my brother in law rajin pegi jenguk and kemas2 rumah.. mop2 and stuff. He'll be staying there while doing his practical training in one of the factories in PJ. And my parents in law sleeps there whenever they are down in KL.. so my house tu kira macam 'rumah tumpangan' lah sekarang.. heh heh.
Did I tell you my fish died coz no one came around to feed it and change its water?? (my mom forgot) It was so sad!! :(

Baca doa sebelum tinggalkan rumah, and maybe ask atreides to send 'someone' to look after it's perimeter while you're gone.. ;)

Lollies said...

betik - mungkin anak i nak start football club di qatar. :-P

tj - itulah pasal. lagipun i nak balik nak tinggal mana pulak

bergen - i only notice the pretty woman part. The more reason for me to go there. their daggers eh? anyone wants to kirim?

onde2 - ya flightnya pulul 7:30 pagi hari Isnin 12hb.

elisa - that's good. at least ada orang stay sometimes. sian ur fish. mati lemas dia.
