The Odd Life of Timothy Green tak best. Period.


Few days back, my mom went to the pasar of Kuala Lipis to buy some groceries and stuff. Anything that would feed her six almost obese kids. Nak nak cuti sekolah kenz. Memang takde aktiviti lain dah  kami nam bradek. Makan tu kira agenda utama setiap hari. Pastuh exercise malas. Dasar remaja obese.

Nak dijadikkan cerita, she also bought some mushroom. For about brapa ratus gram ntah I don't remember. Here goes the story.

Disclaimer: I create this dialog myself seiring dan sejajar dengan apa yg my mom told me.

Ibu                 : Nak 200g cendawan ni.
Anak penjual: Ok. *teros ambik cendawan pastuh timbang atas penimbang*. She then called her dad. "Ayah, cukup tak 200g ni?"
Penjual         : *hes looking at the scale and then buang sekeping/sehelai cendawan*

Blerghhhh. Just blergh. Okay. Hang in there. I'll tell another story.

During my previous school holiday, I went to my aunt's house to spare some time. On this one fine day, she asked me and my cousin(her daughter) to buy some vegetables. Mustard and tomatoes if I'm not mistaken.

So we went to the pasar of Kuala Krai.

I asked the makcik for mustards and tomatoes. Talking in kelantanese dialect, she asked me, "hokni buleh?" 
Then I just said yes.

She then put some chilies and cucumbers together in my mustard filled plastic bag. Dalam hati, "assudah makcik ni salah denga dah ni. Aku nak sawi ngan tomato je. Aduh."

She then gave me the plastic bag. Then I told her. "Sayo nok sawi nge tomato jah cik. Hehe" I laugh to avoid the awkwardness. She replied, "takpo, meme mokcik wi ko adik".

Dalam hati time tuh, perghh this makcik is so kind that I feel like hugging her. Tapi semua tu monolog dalaman je. I thanked her for being so generous.

Balik rumah I told my aunt about this. She then said "ore sini meme lagutu kak".

Oh I see. Hmm.

Nampak tak betapa berkiranya si peniaga cendawan tu tadi? Sekeping ja pun lebih 200g. Berkira gila pegi buang. Makcik yang aku beli sayur ni jugak yang imba. Siap bagi extra lagi. 

Moral value kat sini, kalau ditakdirkan antara kita ada yang jadik peniaga, toksah dok buat berkira sangat aih. Tak kaya pun kalau buang sekeping mushroom tu. Biaq la dalam hati tuh ada sifat suka bersedekah sket kat orang.

Mana nak tau kalau dapat pembeli macam mak aku. Teroih doa si peniaga panjang umur murah rezeki kalau peniaga timbang lebih. Padahal lebih se gram ja pon. Semoga mengambil iktibar.

On an unrelated note, I've watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green. I would give 4 on a scale of 10. I expect something different. But it comes out as so, erm absurd? The idea of this story is great, tapi storyline nya sangat hambar. 


The poster is so catchy. I've wasted almost 2 hours watching this.

Selain daripada mempunyai poster yang menarik, sinematografi filem ini juga cantik. Honest.

That is my personal point of view though. You can choose to disagree. Aku cakap ni pasal apa, there are types of people yang suka gadoh because of this lil thing. Self preference setiap orang pastilah berbeza kak. :D

Sekian sahaja pandangan daripada remaja pra matang 20 tahun. I am just being honest. Maaf kalau ada terkasar bahasa.


Bui-bui.

Bestlah baca blog awak ni. Ooops ter'awak' pulak gagagaga.

Reading this whole blog reminds me of my younger days. Full of ideas. Only difference was that the things I wrote were mostly obnoxious stupidity haha.

Maicher said...

Bro. I did wrote stupid and immature post too. Look at my previous post. Haha for that.

Suka gak tgk movie poster dia, hijau je. Dah tgk Upside Down? My bestie kata best, sth psl gravity.

Ahmad Tongkeng said...

We're all stupid then, I guess haha.

Timothy Green ni cerita apa ni? Tak pernah tergerak nak tengok. Since you did the review, I might as well move on to the next.

Maicher said...

Aliah. Cantik kan poster dia? Thanks for the suggestion. Will look forward on it. ;)

Bro Ahmad. Cite ni pasal couple yg takde anak. Pastuh dorang tanam wishlist ciri2 anak yg dorang nak dalam satu box pastuh tanam kat garden. Malam tu, keluar la Timothy daripada tanah. Dan bermula la kemengarutan cita ni. Last skali Timothy tuh hilang. The end.

Cantik gila template baru. I loike! :)

Maicher said...

Faezah. Hewhewhew. Ore tak guna template. Background jah ni. ;)

pikir kool said...

should've changed the title to "altruism in kelate" instead of timothy green ...

Maicher said...

Pikir cool. I'm so bad at picking the precise title. Thanks for the recommendation though. :)

pikir kool said...

i think it was done on purpose. perhaps to create a gravitational pull. :)

Maicher said...

Pikir cool. You're so negative. Haha

pikir kool said...

oh, was it an honest mistake?

Maicher said...

Pikir cool. Is that considered as a mistake? Hee

pikir kool said...

lol i mean, is it an honest mistake to use a misleading title?

Maicher said...

Pikir cool. Do you really think that my post title went too far from its contains? Bcos 'mislead' there sounds so, "you're wrong!"

pikir kool said...

yeah, i do think so. :) it wouldn't be that hard to prove it but i'll abstain myself from doing so.

that's why it's quite tempting to assume that it was a premeditated mistake and not a bona fide one.

u must forgive if this offends u for it was never my intention to do so.

Maicher said...

Pikir cool. If it's so, why is that really matter? As if I'd harm anyone when using that 'mislead' post title.

Anywhoo, I feel much appreciated that you stumbled upon this blog. Thanks.

It's just that it would be nicer to have comment on this whole post instead of its title. Don't you think? :)

pikir kool said...

well, it matters to me. :)

i have an inquisitive nature. i'd wanna know 'why' something happens, regardless of whether it has a harmful effect or not.

nicer? perchance. but imagine going to a store that says "box office movie review!" and upon entering, found something else.

topsy-turvy!

Maicher said...

Pikir cool. This is going nowhere. My heartfelt apologies if my title disappoint you.

For you'd waste your precious time at the first click of this post title, I feel bad. Sorry again.

If you dont mind, may I know what had brought you here? I mean, through what/who?

pikir kool said...

i have no recollection of the chain of events that have brought me to this place.

u need not apologize. our little banter, although futile, has been quite amusing.

that alone is a worthy compensation.
