When He Errs



THEN....

Man.

Woman.

Man and Woman meet, fall in love, decide to marry.

Man & Woman marry, hump with joyful abandon like no tomorrow.

Man & Woman have kid/s.

Man busy with work.

Woman busy with work, motherhood, and being a wife.

Years pass ......

Man's punai starts to itch for something new & different, casts net (it's a natural phenomenon).

Woman busy with work, motherhood, and being a wife. (Woman doesn't itch easily, not when there's so much on her mind; husband, kid/s, home, work etc).

Man goes full gear into exploration work in potential new fields (something like oil & gas industry; drill here drill there, korek here korek there).

Man strikes oil! Eureka!

Woman busy with work, motherhood, and being a wife.

Man loses himself in new oilfield, kerja siang malam, just like at Petronas offshore platforms.

Woman busy with work, motherhood, and being a wife.

Man forgets he has Wife, Kids, Home... only sees telaga baru to be drilled.

Woman does not forget she has Husband, Kids, Home, but forgets what a punai looks like, now that it has disappeared from her life.

Years later...

Man gets tired of existing oilfield, starts carigali work all over again...

Woman, by now pencen, plays with cucu, apart from being a wife. (She's neither blind nor stupid and knows a lot but chooses to close one eye on Man's shenanigans, saying: "Pi mampuih la haih, kalau dah tua bangka tak sedar diri lagi..")

TODAY...

Man.
Woman.
Man and Woman meet, fall in love, decide to marry.
Man & Woman marry, hump with joyful abandon like no tomorrow.
Man & Woman have kid/s.
Man busy with work.
Woman busy with work, motherhood, and being a wife.
Man's punai starts to itch for something new & different, casts net, eventually strikes oil (it's a natural phenomenon).

Woman gets wise, tells Man to take a hike, beat it, get lost, scram, GTH. To paraphrase singer Ramlah Ram: "Selamat Jalan Romeo."

Man gets a bit jittery, but thinking of minyak dara belum proses, meledak-ledak spouting from a newly discovered telaga calms him.

Man rationalises: What's Wife, Kids & Home compared to RON95 yang tahan lebih lama daripada minyak biasa? Kilometer talala, beb!

Woman dumps Man; Man terkejut beruk, his ego takes a beating.

Woman gathers kids and lives the life of a single mother happily ever after. Bravo Woman!

As for Man... I don't really know what eventually happens to him. Mungkin mandi minyak like that pre-Deepavali ritual; or perhaps jadi orang minyak.

Or naik minyak? Or even jadi taik minyak? Heaven only knows. In all probability, he'd be so kering kena pelekah, nak isi minyak kereta pun tak lepas. Maybe.

End of Story.

One thing I will never tolerate in whatever circumstances is infidelity and sharing a pen that is dipping in many inkholes...

Wan Sharif said...

Salam Puteri,
In Oil & Gas, we drill here drill there, korek here and korek there.. but we do it properly: requested permission from the host Government to ensure the legality of drilling and conducted all the necessary studies to ensure success etc.. we don't go korek here,there and everywhere we fancy..

The korek here korek there you described does not sound legal.. so that alone justify dumping (if not you will be charged abetting illegal drilling) or if you prefer tell the irresponsible driller to take a hike, beat it, get lost, scram, GTH.. har har har..

Hi Kak Puteri

Girl power!!

By the way, the latest finding, if you drill and produce, but so called cap akin to valve tu tak match betul betul and meletus, ha... tu dia... boleh oil spill macam kat Gulf Mexico tu. Sampai company tu could be bankrap lah. Saham dia pun dah plummet more than 50%!

Pak Idrus said...
