The joy of giving

Every  time I cycle or walk in Taman Botani,I will drop by at this jetty as shown in the photo.There,we could see hundreds of fish swimming around.The water is quite clear that we could see the fish and so shallow that we can drop our hands to play with them.However,I dare not even touch  the water.Something fishy or slimy may be lurking down under and may be hungry enough to have my fingers for their breakfast or lunch!

We usually bring a few pieces of bread to feed the fish.It was fun to see the fish rush into getting the food floating on water.To me personally,I feel nice and happy that I could offer some food to hungry fish.Better still,if we could offer food to the needy people in our own community.The giver will be elevated higher than the receiver.

On my way to cycling this morning,I dropped by at 7-Eleven,Bangi  to buy a loaf of bread to feed the fish in Taman Botani,Putrajaya.When I arrived in Putrajaya to get ready for my bicycle ride,my dear friend came to me with a bag of mangoes.I was rewarded even before I feed the fish.As they say,God works in mysterious way.Thank you my Lord,Allahu Rabbul 'alamin.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002

The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..

"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
