Cucur Udang, Cucur Badak

Apologies, have been in mind blogging mode lately.


Received this from a friend.
Sewaktu Pak Pandir menjalankan perniagaan menjual cucur udang, datanglah seorang pelanggan mencari juadah minum petang. Pelanggan itu pun memesan cucur udang RM3.00 untuk dibawa pulang. Apabila melihat cucur udang Pak Pandir, pelanggan itu pun merungut...

Now that she has been going to school for the last 3 weeks, her Ibu finally bought her the bag as promised. *************Looking back, where were you in life on this date ten years ago? Twenty years ago? Thirty years ago?
070797 - I was just started my career as a 'loyer' after being called to the bar about two years before that. Just got married. No kids yet. 070787 - I was doing my matriculation course at a boarding school in Kelantan. It was hell but it was an important milestone of my life. At that time there was nothing else in my mind but to get good grades and get admission to do medicine at a local university. Now let me confess…
