My First English Poem

This, I Promise

(especially for my beloved Ulfa)

.

I can’t promise you a rose garden

For its way out of my tiny might

The wildest of dreams

For I want just to be true

Till the day I’d come

With a heart full of blossoms

This, I promise…

.

I can’t promise you a Taj Mahal’s wedding

For I don’t even dare to dream

Knowing I would fail you

For not being me

And not being real

Dreaming the wildest of dreams

O yes, only my true love.

This, I promise…

.

I can’t promise you showering gifts

The glitters of a woman needs

Those faraway beaches

Or Nusa Dua sunsets

For I have nothing more to give

Than my trusting you

And smiles on my face.

This, I promise…

.

This, my love, I promise:

The sweetest smile you’ll ever had

A shoulder for you to cry-on

An ear that would always ready to listen

Eyes that look straight into yours

Comforting words when you’re angry

And children who would be a somebody…

This, I promised…

Rambo X – The Smoking Gun

21 Mar

That was the e-mail topic I received about ten minutes ago, from the JAN SHIM. I can’t deny the fact that I really love the pictures which he took of me enjoying my ‘HARAM’ likings (to whom it may concern: HARAM LANGSUT NINIMU….!!!!)

We went for Brunei River cruising yesterday, departing Yayasan jetty slightly over 4.45 pm, going towards Bangkurong bridge, passing the Istana Nurul Iman – capturing the unknown beauties of some portion of undisturbed mangrove swamps along the way, while waiting for the sun to sets in. We saw some monkeys, one in particular quite huge to be called monkey (from a distance about 200 meters, that monkey, seriously look like, 60kgs or so…..). We also spottted a shy crocodile, which dived immediately when Jan Shim’s camera was all ready to take the snap. Apparently, the crocodile is not ready to become famous yet.

The sunsets was a bit frustrating as we were at the wrong place at the wrong time. It was really different from shooting sunsets at the beach where we can have the horizon and capture the sun sets in. But then, the frustrations was never really felt as the group itself was very entertaining. There will always be a next time, for sure. Our next planned trip is to Pulau Keingaran and its surrounding, end of April or early May. Maybe taht time we will start as early as 12 noon, so that we can enjoy our pack lunch at Pulau Keingaran, an island which belongs to Sheikh Mahmud Al-Idrus family 🙂
