Selamat Hari Raya

I went back to Pangkor during Hari Raya itself and not on the eve as I planned. I was planning to go back to my hometown around noon but I had to shelf my plan since there were many who decided to have their hair done at my salon at the last minute. Talk about proper planning! I finally closed shop at around 8.00 p.m. but by then, it was already too late. I was hungry and tired and it rained real hard. How was I supposed to go home in that condition and weather? I definitely did not want to add another number to the statistics. So I did what I did the year before. I stayed and waited for the next morning. After Hari Raya prayers, I went to my friend's place (Fa) and he was shocked to see that I was still here. He thought I had already gone back in wee hours of the morning. I had my Hari Raya breakfast at his house and after that, I left for Pangkor. I stopped for a while at my sister's place in Manjung before I took the ferry that carried me across to my beloved hometown. Happy Hari Raya to all!

Instant Tiger Cafe

Drinking this coffee will not make you Tony/Toni The Tiger but it will give you renewed energy. I sell a few other products which are not related to haircare in my salon and I will slowly introduce them in this blog. This Instant Tiger Cafe is one of them and the response from my customers are really encouraging. It is really good for the those who always feel tired. For those who are interested to try it, do come and visit me at my salon.

Bye Bye Mosquitoes, Welcome Guests

Fogging and 'kenduri'! The Town Council decided to send their workers to carry out fogging in my housing area the same day I planned my 'kenduri' for my friends. I had been planning to have this 'kenduri' for quite sometime and I was fortunate when Zainal and Aa volunteered to come down from Pahang to help. I was quite worried when they still hadn't arrived at my place when the time was already 12.00 p.m. I had nobody else to help me since I had only invited people to eat and not to help! Luckily, they showed up not long after that and we went shopping for grocery immediately after that. I was quite surprised when they brought along their own cooking utensils and a big rice cooker. Mira came to help and proved that he had not lost any of his cooking skills. Mira once worked in the kitchen of a well-known beach resort in Pangkor with me and that is how I got to know him. I went to fetch Fa's mother and brother from his place during lunch and also to borrow a few things from his place. I had also asked Intan, my assistant at my salon and her boyfriend to come early to help so I had enough manpower to get the cooking done. Fa came quite late after work and my sister's family came all the way from Manjung. She knew how much I missed home-cooked food so she didn't come empty-handed. Thank you, sis! I didn't have any pictures of the 'kenduri' since I was busy entertaining my guests. The only pictures here are taken by Fa when those guys came to do the fogging. He told them to go further up the block to do their job so the 'smoke' would not get into my house. More than 90 people turned up and thank God, I had enough food for everyone. Thank you, guys for coming to my humble house!

Tahlil At Mimi's Place

Mimi and Wan had a tahlil at their new place on Wednesday last week. It was good to see the whole gang there. I closed my salon at about 8.00 p.m. and went to get Fa and Acuconda on the way. Mimi and Wan's families had come all the way from their hometowns to help them out. Mira, Ady and Zizie were already there when we arrived. Mira was in the kitchen accompanied by Zizie (who provided the jokes as usual) and Ady was taking care of Balqis and Batrisya. We helped a little bit and then it was time to wait for the men from the surau to arrive. Coco and a few other friends showed up not too long after that. Wan invited a few friends from his workplace but they could not stay for long since they were working the night shift. A few of Fa's ex-students were also present to attend the tahlil. We had to leave quite early after the tahlil since I had to wake up early to open my salon and Fa and Acuconda had to go to work on the next day. It's been quite a while since all of us get together for gatherings like this even though all of us live in the same town.

Goodbye Michael

I was shocked when I heard the news this morning. I had to call my friend, Fa, to share the sad news with him. I didn't really grow up listening to his songs but like a lot of other people, I eventually started to like his music. His music videos are fantastic and I can never get tired watching them. I don't really know what to write since I'm really saddened by this tragedy. Goodbye Michael.

On The Cover Of Vogue

Don't be jealous, okay? I'm on the cover of Vogue and it's the international edition! The editor thinks that I have a very exotic look and has decided to put me on its cover. I might not be the first male to grace its cover but I'm definitely the hottest. Move over, Michael Schenkenberg. Here comes FooArt Scissorhands.

Pangkor I'm Back!

I'm back in Pangkor for the weekend to attend a wedding. The last time I went back to Pangkor was a few months ago. This will give me time to catch up with my family members and relatives since they will be there too. It also gives me a chance to take a breather. I have not been able to take a proper holiday for quite some time so opportunities like this should not be missed.

Kuntai The Wireman

The air-conditioner at my salon needed to be serviced and of course, I had to call none other than Kuntai the wireman. His real name is Faizal but I call him Kuntai. He said it has been his nickname since his secondary school days. He is a very good wireman and a very pleasant guy. I called him to fix the wiring in my house when I moved in my new place a few months back. He came to my salon with a few of his workers and while they were doing their jobs, he took the opportunity to have his hair done. He has very long hair and I'm sure there are lot of women out there who are envious of his hair. It is quite amazing sometimes how a guy can really take care of their hair when a lot of women simply take their hair for granted. So if you need any wiring work to be done, just call Kuntai. This is his phone number. Just make sure you don't abuse it. 012 4001418.

My New Place

I actually moved to my new place a couple of months back but I was too lazy to write about it in my blog back then. I am much happier with this new place. It's in the happening part of town where there are a lot of actions but I'm too busy nowadays to be part of it. I still haven't had the chance to welcome my friends to my new place properly. But knowing them, they don't even need any proper invitation to visit me. I'm still in the process of beautifying my house if you can call it that. Unlike a lot of people who go for the modern, sleek look, I prefer to inject some old elements by placing old items that I have imported from my kampung house in Pangkor to make it more personal. I am yet to take any pictures of my new place but I'll post some for others to see later.
