sha: colour of peppers


Peppers

Wednesday is my confuse day. I have prepared some of my posting beforehand; it was difficult to determine which one was going to be my choice.

For instant, this posting is meant to be for last Wednesday. But I'm posting it today. Besides being confuse on which posting should go before the other, I am also facing dilemma between CSI:Miami and Iron Chef. CSI:Miami is currently going a new season and I have watched Iron Chef several times. However, most of the time the battle between two of my favourite tv shows will end with a victory to...Iron Chef.

Last Wednesday, I watched the battle between a female chef specialised in French cuisine. Her name is Kumiko Kobayashi. She was challenging the French Iron Chef Sakai. Before the battle started, it was mentioned that Kumiko Kobayashi was a wife of a baseball pitcher in Japan. She got married to him, then she went to France to study French cuisine.

I was impressed as hell. She got married and went to France alone just to study?
They must trust each other very well.

Somehow, Mr.Kobayashi's features distracted me. He looked familiar and I knew the person who looked exactly like him. When I looked at him, it suddenly reminded me of Jack Bass in Gossip Girl. When I looked at Jack Bass, I was drawn to the familiar looking guy in my life. Well, both Kobayashi and Jack Bass were really distracting - my head was imagining this particular person. I think I'm going insane with this familiar looking males in tv:P (let it be the secret on who this man is, okay?)

My brother told me that Blair Waldorf ended up with Jack Bass. What?! I don't know how far this is true. A stuck up high school student with a president of global corporation. Blair is young and Jack is old. Though I have to admit that I was so attracted to Jack Bass, I can't imagine Jack and Blair together. Why can't it be Jack and Sha...you jump, I jump!

This makes me think about the times when....

I watched Ibu Mertuaku - Kasim Selamat is a musician and Sabariah is a daughter of a rich woman.
I met a woman who has a phD and the husband is a clerk.
I 've seen an example of a jobless man and a teacher.
I read about a mamat kilang and a lecturer.
I am thinking about a combination of occupations.

Someone used to tell me that his mother is allowing him to marry either a nurse, a teacher or a government clerk. If he is marrying someone other than that, his mother will take her time to approve. I guess the characteristic of choosing a daughter in-law these days is getting really intresting.

Some couples meet each other at work:
The engineers are marrying the engineers.
The bankers are marrying the bankers.
The doctors are marrying the doctors.
The bus drivers are marrying the lorry drivers (we rarely see this, right?)

Kobayashi said, as much as he is a professional baseball player, his wife is a professional chef. And their tasks are not easy - as professionals. Kobayashi sat silently while watching his wife cooking and when the wife cut her finger - the frown on his forehead was telling the audience on how worried he was. He was a baseball pitcher. It was not his field, yet he was concerned. How romantic. (I am drawn to this romance gesture. Hehehe. Something is happening to me)

What do you think, should we celebrate the similarities?
Do you have to be too choosy when it comes to your partner's occupation?
Green capsicum to green capsicum?
Yellow to yellow?
Red to red?
Can we mix them?

* Inspiration: Chairman Kaga choking face after he ate the raw yellow capsicum!
* I can't tell lies. I'm missing someone. Adoiii... I hate this! Telling that someone "I miss you too" is like digging my own grave. No way! Say yes to ego:)

My Dear Sha,
1. CJJ = Cinta Jarak Jauh bagi LOL sangat best kerana kita boleh saling merindui tetapi yg tak bestnya mungkin kasih tu mudah beralih arah (kepada yg tak setia). Perasaan cinta tu mungkin tanpa sengaja akan bersemi dengan individu yg sentiasa bersama kita.

2. LOL tak kisah jika si dia sedikit pun tidak mempunyai bidang yg sama dengan LOL asalkan cinta itu ada. Saling mengasihi..

3. LOL juga merindui seseorang tetapi keberatannya nak ucapkan kerana dia bukan milikku lagi.

4. Good day Sha!
Take care.

mmmm... nie komen dr sy lak... :)

cinta jarak jauh mmg bez kalo msing2 sling prcaya mmpercyai.. sesekali jmpa blh mlepaskn rndu, lbh byk bnda nak d kongsikn, lbh romantic n mcm2 lagi ar.. (sbbnya sy tgk parents sy dlu.. mak n kami kat PD n ayah keje kat JB.. so sesekali aje kami jmpa..)
tp yg pnting kat cnie, psangan 2 mstilah SALING PERCAYA.. kalo xde prcaya ssh ar idup nie.. kalo dkat pn blh jd porak peranda kalo xde kprcayaan nie...

- xsemstinya green kna cri green, yellow kna cri yellow n red kna cri red.. kekdg 2 kombinasi cmpuran kaler nie pn akn memeriahkn lg idup kite.. :)
bak kta dotblogspotdotcom : BORING.. :)

apa pn kak sha, bnda nie smuanya kna tnye dri kite sndri.. kalo kita nak cri yg sma taraf ngan kite pn ok n kalo xsma taraf pn ok gak.. :)
n tanamkn dlm dri kite prcyakn ar sangan kite wlaupn bkn 100%.. :)
(dah jmpa ke kak sha??) ;p

Drama Mama said...

to me cinta jarak jauh ad apros and cons. the missing part is nice, coz once u get to meet u'd definitely cherish the moments. and people say rindu tu indah. :-D

but then yang susah nya u rarely get to meet, and furthermore kalau dah kahwin and ada anak it'll be tougher. some people can, some ppl cannot.

i had my share of long distance marriage for almost a year, hope i won't have to go thru it again. :-)

byk pengalaman2 yg besh2 bley kte tau tentang keje lain
so semua ni x jd halangan rasanya :)

Ayu said...

sometimes.. kita x leh nk pertikaikan pasangan yg wife dia keje pangkat tinggi n hubby keje pangkat rendah.. wife gaji tinggi n hubby gaji rendah..

yang penting,.. rasa hormat menghormati antara keduanya..tp berat mata memandang berat lagi bahu yg memikul..

Wow Iron Chef is my Hubby's most fav cookery show. Other than that, is License to Grill! Mcm2 kena bakar! Delicious shows! ;)

sI tEDI said...

sha : bagi aku biar tidak sama supaya tidak bosan bila bercerita pasal kerja.

Kalau suami kerja A, isteri kerja A balik rumah cerita pasal benda yang sama.

tapi terpulanglah.. setiap perkara ada kebaikan dan keburukkan.

mungkin kebaikannya.. mereka akan saling faham memahami...

kalau nak di ikutkankan darjat.. Kamu kaya perlu berkahwin dengan org kaya...

kamu ada kerja tetap perlu cari yang berkerjaya tetap juga.. takut jodoh itu agak liat..

aduhai.. aku kena cari si penoreh getah mithali nampaknya.. he he he..

aku ni menaip pandai.. diri sendiri belum tentu lagi..

he he he

sya said...

ehehehe...
cikgu kawin dengan cikgu..

xiiinam said...

zino said...

kalau dah jodoh tak kisah le dengan siapa.. asalkan serasi..macam kat opis mem ramai nya pasangan dalam opis tu.. macam tak jumpa oramg lain hehe

makna nya ada yg jodoh duduk sebelah je hehe

wrote one comment, and it was dang long!!
even for our standard its still too long so i've deleted it, so below is the same comment, but in point forms:
1) a lady bus driver must have a license to drive a lorry to get the bus driving license. i guess that's the medium of your example character can ever got acquainted.

2) talking about medium, its actually the only reason why a kilang person would marry another kilang person.. bankers to bankers, because they're in the same medium...
blogger to blogger? i dont want to elaborate.
heheheh:) adoi!! jangan cubit sha jangan cubit!!

3) similarity will always bore u sis:)
u are a kilang guy who got home, talk about something and she interrupted by saying... 'oh honey what u did was wrong! the SOP clearly indicate that an engineer like u must bla bla bla'
now when will there be a session with explanation long enough that could last 15 minutes of their dinner?

4) can we mix them up!? by all mean sis... mix em up, n then can u see variance dat brings happiness :)

Mr Big's wife is also a QA manager but in another company... now how about that?

Adila said...

hard to predict about the future..
partner? well.. let just say.. ade jodoh nnt ade la hehe

What do you think, should we celebrate the similarities?
not really.. opposite attracts more :P

Do you have to be too choosy when it comes to your partner's occupation?
i'd say yes? put it this way, the wife is a prof, the husband is a primary school teacher
doesn't sound bad at all, right?
but then.. put urself as the husband. doesn't it hurt to be looking down by the wife? the wife might brag about "i'm way much better than u" if they ever get into some kind of argument

that is no good

Terima kasih kat Sha sebab selalu buat entry yang comel hehe. Selalu buat tersenyum bila baca...

Baca komen Pocket, point 2 pun buat Iza tersenyum...kilang person vs kilang person ..erm hehe.

Duk fikir ni, kilang person mana yang sesuai hahahaa...
