If there is one thing predictable about HANTU, it us this. He keeps the Sabbath holy. He never works on a Sunday. He doesn't gossip on Sunday. He doesn't surf on a Sunday. He is literally in a stupor on Sunday as a result of a malt-inebriated Saturday night. As such I do not get any visit from him on a Sunday. He is literally and spiritually immobile on a Sunday. I was surprised he swooped down on me when I was celebrating Musa Scully's birthday at Farida, my breast-mates home at 7:15pm. He was abusive,.He was asking where the %$#@ I was. I told him that I was at Central Market for the launch of BENAR. He accused me of lying because he went there and did not find me there. I told him I was then down at the enigmatic Hishammuddin Rais' joint downstairs savoring beers with Haris, Fisherman Gus Gan, Benny YewTube Tony, Nat and Politikus and probable new blogger Kendrick. He burped a foul wasabe breath and again said that Yang Berkhidmat Eli Wong directed him to Hishamuddin Rais bistro but I was not there. "Where the @#$% really were you" he sneered. I cautioned him about using the F word on a Sunday and told him that we then adjourned to the PJ Club. I was on my best Sunday behavior and said to him, "I dont interfer with your life on a Sunday and I would appreciate it if you do the same. I don't think Musa likes you at all barging in on his birthday do. What's your beef anyway?"
Bird expletives followed but deleted. Musa sprinkled a splash of 30year old Famous Grouse to cool him down which he did finally and after he swallowed a huge chunk of Farida's ;must -die-for' meat loaf. said: "I don't like it when bas@#$%* take pot-shots at my kind....especially on a Sunday....and in the vicinity of a church."
This was serious shit I realised. This SOB (son of a bird) was in a foul mood and the sooner he gets answers or tells his story, he was going to mess up Musa's party. In between making goo-goo eyes at the ladies, Mrs Zorro, Sheryl, Pearly, Fadzi, Zai, and Roziah he said that a few guys let off 20 gun-shots near the Esso kiosk and the parameter of the St.Francis Xavier Church during the evening Mass. "WTF were those guys shooting at on a Sunday. There are no brother crows around? Twenty rounds! Get me some answers: Was it intimidation because the priest was using the word Allah in his sermon this evening." With that he gave a knowing wink at the ladies, gave me his middle-claw offensive gesture and flew off.
People, help me with some answers will you. I don't want to run foul of Hantu when he is is such a foul mood. Please people, those of you who were in Church.....give us some feedback....and where did these crows come from or who drove them towards the Church?
