Traditional Coconut Candy

Apapun jadi akulah pilihanmu
Hingga sanggup ku singkirkan cinta yang lain
Ku angankan pelamin indah untuk kita berdua singgah
Sayangnya... Semua musnah
- Pelamin Anganku Musnah by Azie

I had the loveliest, tastiest, most awesome coconut candy last weekend! Yes, I know. I shouldn't be too excited about coconut candy but yes...I was overjoyed. Sorry. No hypocritical act here.

A fortnight ago I was looking at the uninteresting coconut candy which was displayed on the top of a mamak restaurant's counter. I was not that ecstatic but I was craving for the taste of sweetness on my lips. I mean, I have been left with sour and bitter taste lately - there were too many incompetencies to be swallowed, too much of drama to munch!

We talked about that later, shall we? The part when I knew that I was not a microphone freak but someone else' was:P

So, what would you say when you were hungry, and angry and freaky...and someone offered you a coconut candy? Well, I know it was not everyone's favourite but then again Sha has always got this childish side of her that everyone could see. So, coconut candy for me was a treat to the unfavourable things I had last Friday.

Enough of intro. Here's the story...

I was sleepy after three hours of karaoke session with office -mates. My eyes nearly closed. Pelamin Anganku Musnah was not my favourite song but that was the only way of how to sing solo. Karaoke was not Choir-and-OK. There were two microphones but not all songs were duet.

But then again...
  • Maybe some girls were too naive. They said they won't sing in a karaoke room but ended up singing all songs.
  • Maybe some people just knew all songs. So, they couldn't decide which was the song to sing and which was the song that they should let others sing!
  • Maybe some girls were too happy-go-lucky and Sha was grumpy. The songs must be the happy ones, so that they could dance shyly:P

Eh, where got dance shyly meh?

But, layan ajelah! Chocolate Strawberry was a nice cake to celebrate a man's birthday. Especially when the man was the sensitive one and he tend to react strangely towards straight forward comments. Carnations were such beautiful gift to a guy who ran his words smoothly, especially when they were beautiful and not Betty-like. And of course...a card with penguins would definitely reminded him of how Pingu was craving for justice:P

Well, I could plan but there would always be someone who were dying to take the credit. Birthday parties were as good as it get; especially when it was successful and you didn't really have to do anything.

So, go ahead. Pelamin Anganku Musnah was such a nice song! Especially to those who were still a kiddo at the time Azie sang it. Unless they loved music too much - they won't remember the song played in the radio at the time their noses were full with slimes. Hehe.

I was about to sleep with the sound of broken voices played in my head when my aunty showed me the coconut candy she made for my cousin's wedding. And when I saw the colours, I was grinning from ear to ear. Wooo...that was not easy, folks! I was frowning hours before when my voice was pitching for Sembilu by Ella. sinus worked out finely for Sejarah Mungkin Berulang. I did sound like the young Tomok with sad face. Hehe:P

Anyway, what I'm trying to imply here is...
There is no distinctive flavour towards attitude.
A taste of coconut candy is straight forward - if you buy those in mamak, you'll taste the ghee. The one you made at home will be different. But both are sweet - not salty or sour.

So, do you have to pretend that you hate karaoke when you practically sang all songs?
With microphone - of course.
