Last weekend we were back in Sitiawan where Abang Long, the second cousin of Sila and I, had his wedding in Kampung Permatang. The bunga manggar above marks the occasion of a wedding at the house.

Suddenly, Irfan discovers the orchids behind him could be a fantastic camouflaged command post from which he could plan his tactical and strategic shenanigans.

It was so hot in the sun that Opah Irfan & Ain had to execute a covert raid upon the kitchen in the back of the house to obtain a pitcher of cold water for everyone to drink.
