There is no way I am going to be fairer any time soon. Just freshly baked from the recent Kayak Star 1 & 2 course which I attended just last week, I went over to help Boss Fadhil conduct the Kayak 1 for the Maritim Sabah. There were 20 of them. Hehe... I was the model for the capsize. Nasib tia kana suru buat roll... bikin malu blum pass.
Fadhil : Apa beza 'Kenu' dengan 'kayak'?

SOSEK MalindoCakap siang pandang-pandang, cakap malam dengar-dengar... so say the pepatah... Sigh. Blogs used to a place where you can say whatever and get away with it. So, even though I have an itch to scratch.. this kind of itch can't be scratch so easily. Kawan-kawan tau la tu kan...
Anyway... this time I was assigned to help with Water Activity instead of the usual Rope Element. Boohoo... ni kawan-kawan tali ni aa... jan dulu sign tu borang kasi lepas saya...

Anyhoo... the bonnet has lost it's sheen. I think kasi polish berabis also won't be enough.
what's the color of the bonnet? It's silverish..at some angle, depending on the light, it looks purple.. Mike Lima has a catchy name for it... surple.

But i figured it woudn't be so hard to sew. The basic is just the skirt maa..
I took Faith's measurement. She, being the tomboy that she is, said," jangan kasi kembang tu skirt aa?" She didn't want to look too girlish maybe. Her mum said, " Jangan talampau ikut apa dia mau tu, Alie.. Kasi buat A-shape ja." "Ok..".
I bought 4 meters of the 60inch wide blue cotton cloth from Starlight in Segama. On sale waktu tu. I thought that would be enough but I suddenly felt like sewing Ninak another baju so after feeling and checking some fabric ( I remember Ninak saying she liked the last baju I made for her, sajuk, licak (hahaha) and had a nice motif).. I bought 1 1/2 meters for her.
So... just yesterday I started cutting the cloth for the pinafores and this morning, Ninak's baju. I sent the kain for edging this morning. Sesampai ja rumah, after lunch, I started sewing the pinafore.
Huih... finished the pinafore after 2 hours plus of sewing. Tu pun... banyak rehat. Sigup habis.. so minum green tea banyak-banyak. (I already bought a pack of Green Tea, Mona).

I might not finish all tonight.. logot-logot lah.

Congrats to the new couple... They already had the akad nikah in Tawau last month (the bride's residence) but for the kawan-kawan here, another reception was held at Kg. Brunei, Kimanis, which a few of us had the pleasure of attending.
All the best to both of you!

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet (O.M.G.!)
A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (In my next life, I want to be a pig.)
A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death.
Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour
The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field. (30 minutes..lucky pig! Can you imagine?)
The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
Butterflies taste with their feet.
The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
A cat's urine glows under a black light.
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
Starfish have no brains
Polar bears are left-handed.
Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

iklan minuman? or iklan gigi?
After that, Mona and I went jalan-jalan at 1Borneo. Mona, the Nike fan, bought herself a Nike water bottle. Ni la... fan betul.. sampai water bottle pun Nike brand.
So, I had the Irish potato salad and Spaghetti Bolognase with Giant Meatballs.
Mona's main meal... Chicken chops
Ok la juga. I thought my potato salad dressing was a tad salty. Mona said her salmon was a bit salty juga. I couldn't finish my spaghetti oo... oiyo... sayang juga tidak finish. Very filling..
Next time maybe pigi cuba the Chinese food over at the other end of the same floor.
A small group of us from Penampang drove to Keningau on the 28th. After about 2 hours of driving up the meandering route of Moyog-Tambunan and the almost straight stretch of Tambunan-Keningau, we arrived at Keningau town. After a short makan stop, we checked in at Keningau Perkasa.
Around 7pm, Uncle Johny came to Perkasa to accompany us. I forgot the jalan ba. The last time I went to Patikang Ulu was early this year and it wasn't me driving. I was just the passenger, so... tidak ingat jalan. Upon reaching the venue... discovered that the whole(i think) surrounding kampung folks were there to make merry. The sound of bandboys could be heard miles away. Uncle Denis looked...almost serenely happy. Dorin...the nervous but happy bride. What was it the Ketua Kampung said that sort of tickled me? He was a bit tipsy but tried to be serious at the same time... he said something like this," ...Pada hari yang bahagia ini, kita semua ingin sama-sama meraikan perkahwinan antara Denis dan Dorin...Pada sesiapa yang mengganggu ketenteraman majlis ini, sama ada dalam bentuk pergaduhan..akan mendapat hukuman yang setimpal...atau disebabkan oleh pergaduhan atau apa-apa...yang menyebabkan kerugian atau kerosakan barang-barang perkakas di tempat ini juga... kamu akan menerima akibatnya...kamu akan dikenakan bayaran yang sepatutnya..."
Practical...I suppose. But I must say...this kind of wedding scene is the kind that has almost died a natural death in the Penampang area. The kampung style. The kampung folks seem to be really enjoying the food and the music. And oh...the music alternated from the modern (bandboys) to the traditional(the gongs).
When the gongs were beaten, a few folks would come out in the middle of the Kem - a 'dancing' space was made/cleared for that purpose- and dance. While the rest of the crowd would sit and drink and eat. What was yet another fun turn of even to watch was, when it was the bandboys' turn to play, Wah! almost all the people sitting would just stand up rush to the floor to dance. Kosong itu kem oh...
And the tajaus...sisiopon... two stations were made. All the tajaus..neatly arranged on long tables...with never-ending visitors. They flocked around the tajaus like bees to honey. No chance mau booking... If you want, you stand in line. I tell you...
It was almost midnight when we finally made it back to Perkasa.
To Mr Denis and Ms Dorin. I wish you happiness. My best to both of you.
Penat I say... Penat. But in a way...fun.
Next in line for kem activity...Kayak Star 2. I just hope I'll be fit enough for the water exercise.
