Single But Not Available

Remember the 3 stooges? Apparent 2 left. 3 cousins, childhood friends. Ad, Ak and Ed.

3-stooges.jpg

Last week Ad stunned me when he told me he’s getting engaged that weekend. I was rather puzzled with his decision. 3 weeks before, it was another story. I’m not a big fan of surprises, much like horror films. It oozes adrenaline hormone unnecessarily when it’s actually preserved for fist fights or chased by stray dogs.

I was over dressed. Baju Melayu, spiky hairdo and glasses with nerdy look.

I sat at the corner, listening intently to the discussion. It was rather boring. The spokesperson was too stoned. He was like Najib, giving his speech, word by word as if people were too slow to absorb. If it wasn’t because of the hot weather, I’d lean against the wall and be on my way to slumberland.

The next day, was Bye’s wedding. Before we reached the destination, Ad’s mom, my aunt, walks up to me.

Ni Ed, orang semalam tanye, kamu tu ade vacancy tak?”

Out of many words in the world, why vacancy? I’m not a hotel with 315 rooms!! Anyway, that isn’t the point here. It’s whether I’m available or not.

We all know the answer to that question. Sadly, no.

I gave my heart to someone a few weeks ago. Much to my despair it wasn’t reciprocated. But I’m a big boy, I know how to handle my emotional state and it’s only natural to wish them good luck in the future. For the moment, let me dwell in this feeling a little longer ok?

Besides, I am very sure I want to marry a doctor. Very very sure.

ps: It’s good to know, I still have a price tag :$:

5 Characteristics? Can you post them here? I’ve google-d, couldn’t find the right keyword.

It’s 4 actually. Sorry for my mistake.

When you seek for a woman, look through these characteristics:

1- Religion
2- Descendant / Family
3- Beauty
4- Wealth

That’s why I know. All the best for you 😀

This is the translation of the hadith:

Dalam sebuah hadis diriwayat oleh Bukhari dan Muslim: Nabi Muhammad SAW pernah berkata, “Seorang wanita dikahwini kerana empat perkara iaitu kerana hartanya, kerana kecantikannya, kerana keturunannya dan kerana agamanya. Maka pilihlah wanita yang taat beragama, nanti engkau akan beruntung.”

Choose wisely. All the best 😀

Oh yeaaaaahh!!!

2 things for me. Agame and brain, the rest, rather shady skit.

Ed, penerangan yang pernah ibu saya berikan…bila seorang wanita itu kuat tiang agamanya (kriteria 1, tapi bukan extremist ye), maka dia terbukti seorang yang bijak (kriteria Ed) kerana tahu mana yang baik dan mana yg buruk. Bijak tu tak semestinya dari segi akademik semata, betul tak? Dengan kebijaksanaan yg ada, harta (kriteria 2) yang dimiliki, walaupun sedikit, pasti sentiasa mencukupi. Dan wanita sebegini cantik (kriteria 3) kerana sifat malu nya, serta aurat dan maruahnya terjaga. Insya Allah juga wanita dalam golongan beragama ini, datang dari keluarga yang baik-baik (kriteria 4).

Sebab itu, yang paling utama harus mencari wanita yg beragama =)

Wallahu’alam..

Aaahh, I see, she isn’t a doctor, eh?

Does she read your blog? Maybe she knows that you wanted a doc after all. Huhu~

I don’t even know who is it that wants me. I don’t think she’s a doctor.

Hmm.. there’s plenty of doc-to-be reading this blog. Not all want to surface. Maybe shy, maybe scared, maybe having fun reading my blurt.

Ah, congratulations to your cousin. I always find myself in a horrible fix of feelings when I hear people get hitched, hooked up or married. One side of me feels very happy and glad that they’ve finally found the other half, while the other resents myself deep inside for being single… ah well, I’ll just let things take their own path.

Looks like you’re in hot demand – somebody actually asked you whether you’re available or not. So don’t worry too much. Regarding the unreciprocated love… is she feeling the same way as your feeling towards her?

Take care!

Teddy, I’ve had that mix feelings too. But once you grow older, you’ll know what you prefer most, single or in a relationship.

We both know how wonderful it is to be single. You can say what you want, go everywhere, save on eatery and cinema, spend a lazy weekend to yourself, get high, basically do everything you wish. It’s a bliss. But until you find the right girl, good enough to rob these advantages from you, I suggest you remain single.

Things will eventually fall to it’s place. Let nature take its’ course 😉

Hot in demand just adds pressure. I’ll certainly be poked around after this 😛

Unreciprocated love, well, no. At least not that I know of. The thing about doctor (to be) is , they like to play it safe. I on the other hand, prefer to get wet and dirty. A little adventure can spike up and adds flavor in life 😉

So far, I enjoy being single. I wholeheartedly agree with what you’ve said – the freedom from any bindings entailed in a relationship is what I’m loving for the moment being… and to imagine it being taken away from me, I cringed. I love going to the movies alone, eating out alone (somehow, I appreciate the serenity and peacefulness of being lonely once in awhile)… I guess with that ‘girlfriend baggage’, I’ll have to take her (or she’ll follow me) everywhere, hah.

Ah, I understand. Generally they prefer to play safe. They’re that kind of people who makes a small, tiny move and then observe how you respond, and then continue their small little moves. Wet and dirty. I hope you mean playing rugby… just kidding!

I often hear ‘attached but available’, seldom hear ‘single but not available’ haha!

Nobody asks me before ‘Are you still available’ or ‘Ada vacancy ke?’. Very much in demand lah you, dude!

Life goes on!

One of the many things that makes life colorful. In demand because of what, I don’t know. (non of the girl at the engagement caught my attention, so downright, no)

Attached but available < used for F buddies. Single but not available < used for wife to be.

kepada doctor di luar sana ..

“jangan tunggu lama2x .. nanti lama2x .. nanti NH di ambil orang .. ”

Aku baru pas jumpe doc utk wat med check up sempena nk masuk degree .. Doc tuh check gigi aku wat kejap jerk..

The way she fluently speaking to her nurse about my teeth make me stunned a little ..
( mumbling about my tooth using their doctor jargon + some coordinate + tooth condition)
