A Friend To Treasure


On Nov 22 2006 at 5.33 am, someone walking by my kampong blog decided to pop in and take a peek. It’s a peaceful and tranquil kampong and my doors are always open and there, I saw this tall, slim and debonair gentleman with the most gentle and warm smile on his face. Of course, I quickly welcomed him into my humble abode. He introduced himself as Uncle Lee and he flew all the way from Canada. It’s winter there now with sub-zero temperatures and I guessed he kinda like my humble but warm abode.

It’s strange but true – we are strangers to each other, we have never known each other but somehow, we clicked straightaway and believe me, we’re just like a house on fire. Awww…..he is a real charmer - sweet, endearing, warm, kind, polite, has a great sense of humour, a wonderful storyteller and before long, my other blogger friends were practically feeding from his hands.

We reminisce, we tease, we flirt – all in the name of good clean fun and we just can’t have enough of it. Uncle Lee, what can I say? But to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your kind words, beautiful and meaningful songs, heart and soul-warming Southern Comfort, the sensual dances, the fabulous bouquet of lovely roses and also your kopi-O and and lip-smacking donuts.

And most of all, thank you for being my friend – a friend I shall always treasure.

Hi NonyaPenang, you just made my eyes glisten misty. Thank you. Never have I had such an eloquent
tribute from so warm and gentle a person such as you. (used to only get, "Lu chiak pah siaw eng, ahhh"!)
You now encourage..nay, titillate fantasies on my part, an evening drive in my Open top red MGB, you by my side in a lovely Batik sarong and black, low cut, laced top blouse, the Pearl necklace you now wearing, a recent birthday present from me as the swaying palms of Balik Pulau stream by. Loosed hair flying in the cool breeze, a single red rose pinned to your hair, the alluring scent of your 'Memoir Cherie' competing with the tropical breezes. A beautiful blue moon above, and the piano strains of Carmen Calveraro's 'To Love again' playing in my cartridge set and then we a day to come will know it was "Some Enchanted Evening".
I will fail in my part if I do not put my thoughts to poetry to once again thank you..NonyaPenang.
"O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it ware ten thousand mile." UL.

Hi Winn, love your Imagination...ada future like that, ha ha.
Superman hairstyle? No la, slight imitation of Elvis heh heh ada, but hair already grey, but not shiny, never did like oily stuff on my hair, the SYT's (or NonyaPenang ? )nanti complain their hands oily la, heh heh,(thank goodness ada lagi ohh!) but have and still using 'Vitalis', no oil but can tahan wind rush in my open car. Ha ha.
Blindman shades? Yes...but it's RayBan's Aviator sun glasses, half tint brown.
Millionaire? Lu ho mia. You didn't notice behind my name "KSM"? Hey! Not from Sultan la, but means "Kerjah sampai mati".
Leaning on a coconut tree? More likely a Flame of the Forest.
Hey Winn, maybe you and I we go sit at Rasa Sayang Penang coffee lounge have coffee, we wait for NonyaPenang, Angel, Kak Teh, Wennn, Winn and May to arrive...they all still X'mas shopping at Penang Rd. Their boyfriends coming to join us too...now playing tennis at Penang Country club, two at Race course.
Hey Winn, thats a nice beige Prada handbag you have. You got good taste. Best regards.....
UL.

"Ahha ahha, thats the way I like it..", even no stars sure see stars one la! Then I wonder what she chat about? Heh heh. Hopefully don't gelek over coconut or durian again, ha ha. Only thing lecheh those days...cars got no automatic transmission la! Cheh! Can you imagine the prospects.....?
I mean put elbow out of window, one hand hold steering....I bet Angel thinking something else ahh? Heh heh.

  At 2:58 AM Blogger Uncle Lee said:
Hi Nonya, you made gua laugh re Angel loves hairy crab. Hey! Aiyohh...itu 'Golden Dragon'...TANJONG TOKONG la! THAT's IT la! I scratch scratch my head, walk here, walk there, knee bang table, smoke pipe like Red Indian lost his pregnant wife make smoke signals, try think of the name of that locality pun cannot remember. Thanks for bringing out that name. Wa Nonya, everytime I say something you jolt my rusty, ada cobweb memory like I mentioned "SYT", you say S. H. Tan. Now Tanjong Tokong!!! Thank you! You my kind of WOMAN la. Cheh! My watch again running fast. Its that restaurant juts out into the sea. Wa, ate there so many times too.
Talking about Speedo and midnight swims....I must tell you this every embarassing INCIDENT! I kena at Penang swim club. Those days I love fancy diving, swallows, back flips, 1 1/2's, flying Dutchman...
Satu hari my gang of SYT's and male members we go swim la. Gua not member but they brought me in as guest many times...when sea too rough to swim.
One cheeky SYT asked me show a fancy dive. How to refuse SYT with mata blink blink flirtatiously like how Angel do, red luscious lips somemore, only 18. So the lovely, young SYT's sit by the pool, uncle naik up to diving board, behave like Tarzan...and did a 1 1/2 dive...ALAMAK, DOUBLE ALAMAK! My shiny black, small swimtrunk as I slipped so beautifully (Ahemmm!) like a knife into the pool...slipped out BEHIND ME la!!! ( I had made the unforgivable sin of not checking my trunk string before that fancy dive. What to do...my SYT's all not 20 yet too...some virgin too, all looking at uncle, heh heh. (Angel, don't ask!!)
I can tell you my SYT's, my male kakis laughed till one or two SYT's jatuh into the pool, lucky didn't drown as laughing so much mouth open fall into the pool, drink the ayer terselak, then cough and cough like gila, as they see me PANIC BIG TIME la, chari where my trunks? And just before that, on the plank...wa, ada action sikit, stretch my Bruce Lee body, tangan stretch out like how they do bunjee jump,...lots of SYT's (some not mine) all looking up...Cheh! Ada style la. Aiyaa, like the song, "wind beneath my wings..."
The SYT's and my male gang NEVER let me forget that incident! Very often go Disco, SYT's will tease, "hey Lee, you got check you tie your you know what"? Cheeee!

  At 1:31 AM Blogger Uncle Lee said:
Hi Nonya, I tumpang here ahh...wa, so happy hear Angel's voice again. Hey Angel, I missed you la.
THERE! I know you sure ask me one la! Kaypor! Ha ha. The SYT's cannot see 'anything' la...I dived in, satu kali feel, oi! Why so cold 'there'? Arhaaa ha ha. Then as I about to come up for air I saw my black swim trunk float near the surface...
Lucky those days swim so often can tahan hold my breath long time la,...quickly from underwater grabbed my trunks and put back and quick tie the string. Wa like those Olympic ladies do that swim thing la. Imagine putting back my trunks underwater. Cheeee!
Ehhhh, the SYT's never saw "anything" la, arhaaa ha ha. Nice to have you back again. Lu ou eng lai cheh chiak kopi gua eh chu ahhh. UL.
ps, hey Angel...Wennnn now my kaki la, wa last night chat past midnight la, she GARANG ONE ohh!
