Kisah Si Penjual Petai
It has been 3 weeks my husband and I didn’t go to the pasar malam. So today’s pasar malam is really an awaited one. Am kinda craving the keropok leko and pandan tau fu fa badly. And my hubby? He loves the 1 ringgit burger so much. And am lovin’ it too. Asik makan McD jer…bila once dpt berger mesia ni..wowww..bak kata org perak bulih ‘pengo’. Haha am kinda using that phrase wrongly. But, belasah jer la. Digoon correct me please. Hehe.
Pasar malam mmg rawk. Murah and sempoi. During my uni years, pasar malam serdang was a real treat for the UPM student. My favorite selection was its char kuew teow and aiskerim goreng. Demmmmmm. Sedap nk mampos ok. That was my first time to see aiskerim di goreng. Hahaha. And hello aiskerim boleh kene goreng ker? Kinda a little bit gayat. But TJ, bila nk banjer aiskerim goreng lagi??? Instead of slurpppp, the sound that u will make when eating the aiskerim goreng will be like this…krappp krapppp. (harap u olls faham sbb saye sendiri macam konfius nih). Cut it short, aiskerim tu rangup that’s why sound effect bunyi mcm tu.
The one that am going today is just nearby my house. Ala jalan 5 tapak jer dh sampai. To my concern, there is a woman that selling petai and many more other ulam-ulaman. Everytime I walked pass by her and her petai, I was really touched. She`s kinda hidup sebatang kara and I did think she is an andartu. Errrr not sure whether am right or not. And it’s seemed that selling petai is the only way she earns for living. With an old fashion Yamaha bike (not kapcai one, ni mcm motor yamaha besar dolu dolu punye) she rides her bike from Tampin to Malacca to run her business. (I knew it sbb I selalu nampak dia bile am on my way back to Malacca). Dgn baju hujan buatan sendiri gune plastik terbuang. Sighhh. Say no more.
I mmg kesian and touched. Last time I nearly buy the petai and my intention was to contribute a little money to this woman. Tapi konferm I mmg tk reti masak petai. So just tought that I could get some for my mom. Tapi I tk ingat wat happen I tk jadi beli kot. But today, maybe I will.
So frens and anyone who reading this. There are many more out there who not as lucky as we are. Keep on praying for them as every one of us in this world deserve to live our life in our best way. No money to donate or some sort of excuses? Well, never mind just pray for them; hope God will send our help via his mighty power.
SERES I MMG BERBAKAT
