Its been sometimes,I ventured out of the house. After the hari raya ,I passed my time doing household chores within the 4 walls of the house.I was a perpetual hermit.
Once in a while,I went out to the front porch,to tidy up what needed to be done. Sweeping the porch of the dried leaves. To tell the truth ,I gave up greening the porch,after all the plants that were potted or hung died when we were away from home quite a number of times.And I am no green fingers either.
But a few days before,I decided that I have enough of ketuk ketuking of the laptop.Armed with a garden shears,a chopper,I decided to flex my muscles….. menebas !
As it is, the bushes and drains behind our perimeter garden was usually tended to by the municipal workers.And after that clout with the minister,all work came to a halt.There was no more of the sounds of grass cutting or the sight of them clearing the drains.As such,the once cleared patch of land was overgrown with bushes.How the wild plants have taken control of the land was amazing.The once small bushes has grown so wild that it could be a secondary jungle.
Usually pakli would clear them but he was too busy with the new project that he neglected them for more serious business.
So today,mamason feels it was high time to take charge.Armed with the sears and chopping knife,she took the bull by the horns.And guess who came to assist her? Dell and Mok la siapa lagi!
By 1.00 she finished half of the task.Clipping away the long branches and pulling and tugging the undergrowth away.
Ibu bikin apa tu? I heard a voice behind me.Oh,it was the maid of my neighbour.
Dari mana? Jakarta jawabnya.
Ibu baru kerja sini ya? Dia bertanya lagi. I nodded.Ha ha biaq pi la dia ingat makcik pun maid juga.Mungkin ada rupa kot.hehe
I finished half of my intended mission.Maybe I would take another ten days to have the land cleared and primp.
Lepas tu,makcik nak mulakan kebun mamason.
Mari kita ke ladang he
Mari kita keladang he
Kita menanam kacang
Hati tenang jadi riang
Terngiang ngiang lagu “Kebun Pak Awang” !
Gambar nanti ya.Kamera tak ada batteri lah pula.
