Topsy Turvy

A normal scene in Lab.

My memories of schooling era, part of that, are engulf in this old bicycle as l rode this bike for school for some years in the late 70s.


We lost a calf and a cow to the tigers in last two nights.

This is what l always fear off when the co-existing between us the homo sapient and the wildlife is divided only by a blur, thin line. We as usual, push the limit and these the jungle roamers, when no where else to go, will fight back to us.

This morning we tracked the trails. Found tracks of tigers in our orchard. The most experience friend among us suggested that was a Mother Tiger with her offspring. Probably in their round looking for food or probably while doing so, trained her offspring of "how to do it".

We did found the carcass of the calf but the other cow is still missing. Normally, when the Tiger strikes, the cow's herd will went berserk and leave the pound as the "tiger's trauma" are to much for them to bear.

We are still looking for that poor cow. Hope she still wondering around in the jungle fringe.

On the other hand, l understand we must share what we have. We will have some, and they must have some. We are sharing. After all, everything around are only a loan.

4 x 4

On Friday morning, my Jimny was trapped in a palm oil plantation, on my way to the family's orchard. Unable to move back to home as the hill was to slippery to climb on. You know, monsoon season and the mud and things like that. The Jimny is with it's tarmac tyres on, and it won't help much anyway...

Saturday afternoon, called a friend for a Rescue Operation and both of us sprinted to the spot we the Jimny was left overnite.

Even with the Orange Jimny's studded off-road tyres and good 4x4 tranny, it was not an easy pull.

Anyway, hard works pays off! On the solid ground, we enjoys the scene!

Yea, it was dog and hound chase after that!

Later, both of us on the road and heading home. The weekend was officially over!

Tin Man

The Tin Man of Kota Anyar, Paiton, in East Java made me speechless. He ply his trade recycling cans or anything metal and turns it into the household items. With a few knocks, rolls and a bit of tin soldering, Gudang Garam cigarettes cans turns into kerosene lamps. Thinner containers transforms into the garden spray cans. And everything else in between...

l saw this trade flourished in Cabang Tiga, Kuala Terengganu during my childhood. We used to have the pails made from the metal sheets recycled from cooking oil can. Then l saw the Tin Man trade dwindling down with the advancement of plastic into daily life. Then our house adopt the plastic. Then l forget the Tin Man...

Wondering, did the Tin Man of Cabang Tiga inherit his skills to the next generation?


Welcome to 2008.
Thank you, friends, for be with me for all this while. l treasure your visits. l keep your support.
