My Humble Abode...



Every morning..when I wake up I am greeted by the sounds of a little black and yellow bird chirping away outside my bedroom window and every night I fall asleep to the sounds of crickets cricketing, frogs croaking, dogs barking, cats mewing..When I first moved to my 'not quite on the map house', I used to be so upset with people passing remarks like 'Eeee..I rasa I tak bolehlah duduk dalam hutan' and 'OMG, jauhnya from civilisation..' First and foremost, my house is not in the jungle..and as for civilisation..the nearest McDonalds is 5 minutes drive ! Just because my house isn't situated in some upscale overly priced area does not mean its worthless..just because it was not designed by some fancy schmancy architect does not mean its not beautiful..in its own way, it has its own appeal, its own attraction..my house is only 6 minutes away from my office..so, I never ever have to worry about getting stuck in the jam ! my house is only 10 minutes from the Sg. Buloh toll..so getting to anywhere and everywhere is not exactly difficult..so what if it is surrounded by kampung environment ? so what if the nearest supermarket is not Cold Storage ? Its my house and I love it ! (I'm not being bitter, I'm just upset with a certain someone who said 'Oklah jugak duduk rumah kat sini..' with a little uppity snobbish curl to her mouth..

If they were being snooty about where you live, I wonder what they would say about where I live ha ha ha. I don't bother with people like that la, derang jearrous tu.

What?? You don't have to feel that way. Your house is nice, the environment is peaceful. I've always wanted that kind of house. Not as big as yours but something like that. You should be proud of that..something that you love..Your home.
