When I heard the generator from the commuter station nearby, I knew the rain was coming. I knew for a fact that if the rain was going to be bad, there was no chance of going online with streamyx. Even though I was not using wireless or broadband, streamyx can be annoying sometimes. I think I have to POTONG! (my twisted mind is thinking about something else...help me!). More than 2 working days of bad services was UNACCEPTABLE!
At first, I was still listening to my brother's compilation of songs. Similar to manje, he had this partiality towards Grease - grinning and smiling when he saw Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. He even knew how to immitate them. That was just his hobby. His favourite was - "Anak bapak balik, menantu bapak cantik!" from Musang Berjanggut:)
Then, I went outside. No Astro, no streamyx. No computer either. I only had Jenab, my dear rabbit. I checked her poo - there were lots of them even though I cleaned it up in the morning. With the rain pouring heavily, I used the water to wash container beneath her cage. The water did not flow through the drain. Something was clogging somewhere. I saw dried leaves at the end of the drain before the main stream.
I quickly grabbed the broom and cleared the way. There are three big trees in front of my house. Though we have no autumn in Malaysia, at the end of the year, the leaves will fall drastically and clog the drains. We have to sweep it everyday, otherwise our house will look like the house of Adam Family:P
Without my realisation, I was wet! Hahaha...something nasty came into my mind. I looked around and I couldn't see my neighbours. So, I went inside to grab my syampoo, shower cream, toothbrush and toothpaste as well as my towel and kain batik. At the same time, I picked the jasmine, kenanga and other flowers to dance in the rain!!! With flowers too! (people said to me I need to mandi bunga to get a jodoh...ahahaha...ridiculous...you think I'm that bad?)
Ooo...just to let you know, I was not naked. I was wearing an Italy World Cup shirt with a blue kain batik (lucky it didn't drop!) Since my house is at the corner, I went to the most hideous spot and started my own concert. I sang Takdir Cinta with all my heart in the pouring rain which hid my pouring tears...then I sang Hey Ladies, pretending that I was the Herbal and Essences new fat model. After that I sang this stupid song which was dedicated to me on my birthday:
Siapa yang punya anak
Bilang aku aku yang tengah malu
Karna cuma diriku yang tak laku-laku..."
I know...the song was pathetic wasn't it? My youngest brother, Adik, played that song through his handphone and asked his brothers to sing this song to me....haiyyooo...pity me, okay?
Then something triggered in my mind, "Dah hujan nieh, pergi mengaji. Langit terbukak tuh!" my late grandmother used to say that. I did the same thing last time, I sang like a fat frog waiting for a kiss from her prince! The heavier the rain, the louder I sang. That was the reason nenek scolded me. She was not scolding me yesterday, of course, but the bubbles popped just at the right time.
So, while rubbing my arms with the loofah, I silently recited the prayers. It was my deepest regret that I was having the time of the month, so I couldn't do what she taught me to do.
But releasing everything in the rain was so much fun, so peaceful...How I wish I could stay in the rain forever...
I finally realised that I was bathing alone. No more, "Shahmi, kau jangan jatuhkan sabun dalam longkang!"
My brother's convocation letter is arriving.
He is no longer the same boy who danced in the rain with me.
I need to dress up before someone sends the letter.
Happy Friday, buddies:)
