I sleep really early nowadays. For the past 2-3 weeks or so, I have been sleeping at around 8 or 9. Siapa cakap keraja ani inda mengalih? MENGALIH KALI AH. Office ku lagi tingkat 4. Old school lagi building ku pakai tangga. Bagus pulang tu naik tangga, and you would think that it would be membari kurus. You're wrong. Ku liat nada pun kurang kurang nya. Makin ada pulang. And especially now that I wear a button-up shirt and a tie to work, I look like as if I don't have a neck, and I'm serious.
So last night I dreamt of Katy Perry. She was like, hey I kissed a girl and I liked it. Apakan! Anyway, aku mimpi ia kawin sama aku wah. Sekali aku hairan wah, macam eh boleh kan ia kawin sama aku. Sekali ia cakap ia masuk Islam sudah. Woohoo, aku terima nikahnya Katy Perry Abdullah dengan mas kahwin $500 tunai. Sah? Sahhh!
Paloi ni kadang-kadang mimpi ani. Macam banar wah iatah sudah bangun membari sasak. Ada jua rasa kan menumbuk dinding kadang-kadang. But I think bagus jua lah mimpi-mimpi of that sort. In real life, something that interesting won't hapen to me, so mimpi pun kira okay lah. Cubatah, orang Brunei mana boleh kawin sama Katy Perry ah? Cubatah? At least aku pernah. Walaupun dalam mimpi yo. Tapi kalau banar-banar wah Katy Perry biniku... inda ku keluar rumah. Banar.
You know how salah satu daripada gangsa hantaran kalau orang kahwin atu is 'pembuka mulut' right? Gangsa pembuka mulut usually comprises of an amount of money and a ring. That got me thinking. Since that is our tradition, I'm guessing it has been around dari dulu sudah. Tepikir tia ku; jadinya it took those women back in the day an amount of money and a ring to finally buka mulut. How materialistic.
So kirakan newly weds ani malu-malu kali wah lapas nikah atu. Becakap pun malu. Sekali the husband would present the pembuka mulut supaya the bride will finally start talking: Wah, lawa cincin ani, Abang! (Sudah atu!) So a pembuka mulut ani kirakan ice breaker. Nada gangsa pembuka mulut, no talk. No money, no talk. It's like, with the pembuka mulut - 'Now we're talking!'
I'm not saying that we should stop that tradition though. It was just a thought of mine. I just found it funny. Kalau aku kahwin ada pulang tu gangsa atu kali. Nowadays it's just a matter of following the tradition. Mana lagi ada orang sudah kawin baru bejumpa karang ani. Dulu-dulu ganya tu kana tamu-tamu kan atu. Karang ani cubatah, mengamuk kali eh.
Kenapa aku cakap pasal kawin? Antah ah, it just seems like it's the next thing to do, especially after bekeraja and bekereta. HAHAHAHAHAHA hell no.
