Come Sweet Rain

I woke up at 5 am this morning and went to balcony to see that it was raining outside!
I was in disbelief, in awe. It was the first rain ever in Bangalore for this year. Can you believe that?
All praises be to Allah.

p/s: The smell of rain reminded me of my ever sweet hometown.

Cromok Reunion

Cromok reunion is happening at last, after 20 years. They will hold a concert this April. If only I can join the Cromers to celebrate this reunion, it will be once in a lifetime experience.

During those years, my father always took me to the roadside and we would wait for about half an hour. The road was empty and it was a scorching hot afternoon. The humid air was still. And I can see some people waiting here and there at the roadside. Then the crowd from nowhere started to gather alongside the road, and more will join us later on. Something was going to come, sweeping the dust and little gravels off the Dungun tarmac. We waited there for quite some time under a shady spot to avoid the burning heat. Some of us were restless, while others patiently waited.

After a while, policeman and marshalls with big bikes and officers with their Proton-sponsored cars passed by. This was the sign that they were coming. I knew they were approaching us from some distant that was not far away from where me, my dad and other crowds were. And yeah, I can see them coming now. They were in peloton, clad in coloured jerseys and equipped with hi-tech bikes. Within a few seconds, all of them were out of sight. They were so damn fast, being on saddles non-stop for hours on ten straight days in the middle of hot tropical climate. And I was amazed by their ability to do that till this present day.

How I miss LTdL during those years.

Health, happiness, love and friendship...

Is it the gene that should be blamed?

Or is it just me?

Or my surrounding perhaps?

Or whatever it is between those factors?

I think it is me. How should I be at peace in this?

A rest? A holiday? A tour? Any shit?

Maybe I need a T1 afterall. And the road behind the 18-hole golf course perhaps.

And what I just talked about, eh?

If there is T1 here, I will surely own it no matter how much money is left in my bank account.
