Fire of Love - Episode 3

For Anonymous May 18  3.44am.  I'm sorry you had to wait for the sequel to the cliffhanger.  So here goes a little more nonsense!

................... I suppose, after a few good years, most men approaching their 40s begin to suffer the pangs of the male menopause while the female gender just keep on revving!
He got this way because he hadn't discovered the magic elixir of macho Malay cuisine ... like sambal blacan cili padi, sambal pedas ikan bilis & petai and kuih naga sari !

The following drawings were the results of his daydream in the conservatory of his house.  And this ritual of an afternoon kip still works wonders up to today.

In fact Maizie was recovering from a 3-year teaching stint in Brunei.  As the intrepid female that she is, Maizie managed to do her Certificate in Linguistics at Essex University and gallivant in Wordsworth's lovely Lake District.

She came across this wishing well where she found a cute little frog.

Little did she know the portent of this encounter.

Oh why, oh why did she make this stopover in Leicester?

But one wish did come true.

p.s.  There are still more horrendous stories to tell.

Thank you ph.
Now you know what Uncle looked like years ago. He has improved a little after eating a lot of blacan and cili padi!

Dear Wan Sharif,

I am sure you would do the same for your 'buah hati'.

We were all young and stupid once, weren't we?

And thank you and may I have your contact number please? Hope this is not a cliffhanger - it's only for "Coming Soon".

Hello Ms Hamid,

I just saw this posting of yours. I have a photocopy of these drawings from years ago in black and white.

For some reason, I have always liked the simplicity of the drawing of the big trees with two little figures huddling up in the cold. It makes a difference to see (only) the little figures in color now. They have "added colour" to the picture!

Uncle Iain is a marvellous artist!

Thank you Irene,

You know I have completely fogotten about that b/w copy.

Bless you for keeping it.

You know, you are also a wonderful artist and you can do as well (or better) than the blue and red figures huddled together.

And like you said years ago, "artists are mad". That's what you and Uncle Iain have in common - a frustrating madness.

Anon May 18th is your truly.

I did key in my name but I guess the system or my silly fingers pressed something else instead.

Love episode 3. Ada episode 4 tak? Hehehe....

Thank you Aida Marie Mohamad,

It's odd you know. Just before I opened your comment I was telling myself I must do the 5th and final episode of Fire Of Love.

The 4th chapter was done in June - the penultimate episode. Give me a day or two and the Fire of Love will soon see its flame put out..

Glad you enjoyed the silly nonsense of AsH's life
