Payang musafir ke teluk waktu,
Selamat datang ke rumah puisi,
Seberang Takir menyambut tamu.'
Sometimes when we got something for free, we tend not to appreciate it or value those things as it should be..be it living things, precious material..or precious moment and even books...last Friday was our lucky day, coz hubby found 6 books on Malay pantun which were placed on recycle bin...3 of them are hardcover...can you believe one of 'em is J.M Aziz's and the other is Aripin Said's...that person might have got it simply becoz they are working with Kementerian Kebudayaan, so those are their free copies..
One of the book even include a manuscript that were written in Jawi...
To me, those books are so precious and meaningful, they are proof of our cultural value, I'll try to find time to read to Sufiya, even though she might not understand those lovely words...but one day I'm sure she will...and those books will be kept as family treasure.. :-)
