Two Men, Too Little Time

I have started reading the Dina Zaman's book since last Monday.When comes to reading, I must say that I am rather impatient and anti climax, that explains why I read newspaper back to front.I have resigned from reading books yang tebalnya mengalahkan batu tela simply because it is time consuming and the fact that I dah makin tua and pelupa.Once I started it and take a break after few pages, I normally ended up re-reading the book because I have forgotten what it was all about the moment I resume reading it.

Not wanting to stop reading books completely, I now opt to short stories and that do me good as habis baca satu cerita, besok sambung baca cerita lain, all in one book.I have personal reasons to wanting to read DZ book and the fact that the book (s) came all the way from KL courtesy of Kiah & Bella made me doubly eager.I was on the Victoria Line tube to Vauxhall yesterday and forgotten my IPOD. Not wanting to mengurangkan pahala posa dengan memandang pisang-pisang segar/kecut dipagi hari, I had to find other alternative to stop my eyes from straying. I took out DZ book from my knapsack and began reading (although, I usually cannot read in moving vehicle) After few minutes, I macam terasa-rasa ada orang pandang and started to feel slightly uncomfortable, and only after a while that I realised that I am reading 'I AM MUSLIM' book on a tube packed with morning commuters.Apa makna nya ni? Not wanting to be the centre of attention and certainly not wanting to be mistaken a female acquiantance of Azhari Hussin, I pun simpan lah buku tu dalam beg sambil tersipu-sipu.

Speaking of reading...eversince I balik from my Brussels/Paris trip, my mailbox has been inundated by email from Mr You Don't Know Who.This guy yang kisah kesiamangannya dah puas ku war-war dalam blog ni semenjak 2,3 menjak ni macam dah takde kerja lain, rajin bebenor menghantar email kat I. That is guy number 1.

Guy number 2, Kiah....you will love this, Jantan Tembam...isk..tak baik lah...astaghfirullah...K. The day that he decided to menunjukkan kemachoan nya yang tak bertempat tu yakni memutuskan talian telepon tanpa membagi chance aku membela diri, I thought, that will be the last I heard of him.Or so I thought.

Guy number 1, I thought I am doing both of us a favour by not responding to his emails.For god knows why, he is so keen to keep in touch.He have been but knowing me, how fragile I can be (and I have been) I decided some while ago that enough is enough.But semenjak puasa ni...I really thought hard about him. Apa yang gigih sangat ni? Nak kata nak menyambung silaturrahim, what sort of silaturrahim can you have with an ex girlfriend? Silatur-benda-lain lah nanti kan, Kiah? By the look of it, he have been emailing me daily, Monday to Friday (nampak nau pakai computer office) and this is regular since his Europe trip. To kill my curiosity (before it kills me) or gatal more like, I gave him a response.I also thought hard about doing this...tak nak le luka lama berdarah kembali.I keep telling myself, I dah moved on...so, nak kengkawan, apalah salahnya kan? My response was very little (plus nak tunjuklah yang I ni tak le berminat sangat) I wrote, received your emails, I have been busy. Hope you're keeping well. Selamat Berpuasa. Tersangatlah plainnya...ala-ala takde nafsu gitu.

By writing that, I got 2 reply from him on the same day.

Guy number 2, K, selepas tunjuk perasaan dalam telepon, terus tak call and by the time he did, I was already travelling and my mobile was diverted to the house phone. Tapi, house phone pulak dah disconnected. He tried his luck again few days after I balik from France by texting me.Wishing me selamat berpuasa.I didn't reply (in fact, this time...my charger tah mana-mana diamnya so sesiapa yang call, mampus lah tak berjawab) This guy is easily offended...and being a mulut puaka that I am, this is the type of people I should avoid, tak pasal-pasal, aku disantaunya.I assumed that dia dah sakit hati (lucky me) and will stop contacting me completely.Nope.He rang me on Monday...ajak buka puasa sesama.

What is it with men? Ada selective memory loss kah? The first guy, dumped me and pretend that we only buddy-buddy all that 10 years aku berchenta dengan dia and pastu now ni, nak jejak kasih pulak...and 2nd guy, dah dihempasnya telepon kat I, tanpa nak mintak mahap ke apa, terus ajak I buka puasa dengan dia?

I am not sure if I am suppose to be flattered by the attention.

I was quite direct with K, when I spoke to him on Monday.

I really don't want to waste your time. What do you mean? I'm sure you're not that stupid.Ohh..pasal hari tu ke? Sorry la, I tengah angin. I miss you. That's huge, are you sure? I miss talking to you. If you want to talk, you just say want you want to say, but frankly, I don't want to be responsible for your 'angin' and bear the brunt of it. Let's talk over buka puasa.There's something I want to tell.Don't tell me. I'm very busy, I have to tell you this.Nanti you jugak yang sakit hati.Please.

Bersambung.

Makji, ala knape conversation tu tergantung? *matila anti-climax!

hiks.. Tula kan? Men love to mess around indeed, pantang nampak pompuan lain abes ditinggalnye kita (oppsss mak pon pompuan?) Bila dah kene tinggal baru nak tercari2 kita balik, looser sgt taw!... Sib baik la kita wanita kan? *matilamak wanita plastic! hehehehe...

Cik Kiah Kidman said...

He begged you? Eii! Rimasnya aku! But teruskan cerita anda, ok?

Manal said...

Makji....apa la masalah dunia si JT ni yea...and that ECA, banyak makan maggi mee and lotsa MSGs ker that his memories gets haphazard as he ages?

That JT kan, it's that angin (and perasan and pushy and egocentric) attitude that got him into hot water (or in deepshit).

And ECA, does he think that u r his "beck and call"? bila dah takdak sape, baru nak cari?

Ish...drama ramadhan sungguh, except it's not the usual 6pm (RTM or TV3) slot. Kasi good idea to Eastender maybe.

Lee Novotny said...

Again, this is like a diary for si Kiah...hoiii mak jeles wehhh!!!!

Salam Makji Esah:

Mula-mula thank you for reminding me of one object: Batu tela. I haven't heard of that word for years..

Raeding I am Muslim in a tube pada waktu yang baru ada kesan2 terrorist di England TokDin( masa bebudak in 70s dulu bila disebut England sebagai England Tokdin, tak tahu pasai apa), memanglah akan menarik perhatian mat-mek saleh.. Mungkin depa takut makji Esah wak bom ka apa ka dalam knapsack tu.

Jantan tak idaman dua orang tu....lantak je lah ke depa. Biaq lah depa layan perasaan perasan depa masing2. Tapi kalu makji ingat dah boleh tolerate dengan perangai depa ,ikut suka makji tapi harus di ingati bahawa kejadian potong telipon ketika sedang bercakap mungkin akan berlaku bila hangin tembam datang semula.

(Lain kali baca buku adibah amin dalam tube, baru la mat-mek saleh tak ushar)

kuar je lah buka posa ngan si tembam tu, pastu update kat kitorang... pastu email dan tanya directly mamat yg dok email u tu... tanya apsal nak kawan balik, apa intention anda stelah skian lama?

takat bagi hint ni org laki otak kat lutut selalunya takleh paham, dan akan menyebabkan selektif memori.. biar direct, pastu tersave dlm email or sms, then diorang buleh review dan nampak dgn jelas..

sekian tazkirah ramadan kali ini..
