Hello Kuala Lumpur - Good-bye Leicester

By this time of year most migratory birds have already flown north for spring and summer.

Tomorrow these two geriatric cuckoos will fly south and should be in our abode, InsyaAllah on Friday the 13th!!!

It will be back to braving mad KL traffic for the spouse's twice weekly visits to Tung Shin Hospital (Chinese Traditional Medicine).

We shall re-commence our relationship with our crazy and stupid and stubborn cats - Comot, Rusty and Socks.  Hope they forgive us our absence,

We shall have our routine of  Mus popping in after work for a little chin-wag and  for his brother-in-law's teh tarik.  My sister can look forward to us waiting at her door,  mengendeng (mooching) for lunch.

We can look forward to academic and mind-boggling conversations and frolics with my sister's grand-children,  all 10 of them - but not all at the same time - oh no!!

Of  course we expect to be plagued by the second generation adults especially Maria, who uses the pretext of dealing with our administrative matters  just for a spot of Uncle Iain's KL-famous teh-tarik. There's also Hannah who drops in for a chit-chat about the trials and tribulations of doing law at UM.  But I also suspect (a prima facie case) that she loves her Uncle's version of cappucino coffee.

Then there will be the Rainbow Band kids  (they're all over 16 now)  from Singapore.  Lely and Ruqxana have  already made a booking for 4/5 June.  They're very considerate - giving us sufficient time to get over the jet lag.  (Oh no, not them again!!).  Din, the other one in KL, comes for cupboard love but he sometimes acts as a minder for the Dynamic Duo.

Good-bye No. 43 and Leicester.

My room will be bereft - of my mess!

Our dear, dear Jack and his seven cats.  Take care and do try to behave.

The most imaginative of Leicester's beggars.

The indefatigable dandelion - my role model.

Shy Ladybird - my best spring picture

Victoria Park.  How I will miss you!

Sorry, our paths crossed - you going that way and me coming back this way - but not quite Leicester. I think I saw you attacking your nasi lemak in that plane going the other way in the sky.

And God bless you both. I left a happy country with many happy people (well, the ones that I know anyway) and I leave it in one piece for you to enjoy. I shall look after Leicester in your absence, and all who sail in her.

And hail to thee Thane of Glamis and hail to thee Thane of Cawdor!

PS My Word Verification word is gramis. Close.

Thank you Putri,

Say this YEAY a little softly, we're jet lagged.

rohaya 28,

Rohaya? who's she? Rainbow Bandits? Is that a new crime thriller by Spielberg?

Help, where are we? We're not ready, ever, for that July raid!!

Thnk you Roy.

anak si-hamid said...

Dear AG,

Thank you. We can't go on avoiding each other this way!!
The only party that gains is MAS.

As for that nasi lemak - the Thane of Glamis/Cawdor sniffed at it and complained it's not genuine - not pedas enough! But the so-called curry chicken was pretty adulterated, for weak western stomachs. Next time we'll smuggle in our own sambal petai ikan bilis.

Leave Leicester alone because I love the chaos - I voted for the Monster Raving Loony Party!!

Take care. Don't get too tanned in the summer and love and salam to you both from friends of Yorick.

Thank you Mus,

Those three cats are a b..... pain but they're lovely!

Wonderful to be back.

To ph and Wan Sharif,

It seems that I have lost your comments. But thanky you all the same.

This blogspot went bonkers on the day I left.

Don't look at me! It's not my fault.
