So last week I lol’ed when computer lab assistant(LA) asking me this. He’s an Indian guy, around 50++ yrs old.
LA: Teacher, where are your hometown?
Me: Ampang. Why ah?
LA: Are you from Kelantan? Your parents?
Me: Nope. Malay-Javanese. Do I look and sound like kelantanese?
LA: Well yes. I’m from kelantan too. I miss kelantan so much. Was living there about 10 years ++ That’s why I’m asking whether you’re from Kelantan, and if yes which area haha.
Me: LOL. Well I’m grown up in Selayang then Ampang. I never have been to Kelantan yet, but I really wanted to pay a visit there. Which area are you from?
LA: Well you should. It’s very peaceful and beauty. I’m from Pasir Tumboh.
Haha I always remembered when I want to mimic their dialect, Muthanna, my deskmate in Maresmart will say that it’s sounds funny and could also fall to insulting. He’s from East Coast so he can speak in their dialect extremely well. It’s also another proof of the how non-muslims living in Kelantan as previously I’m asking Yee Lin bout that.
Last week been a busy week. Have been devcamping at the office on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday + Saturday. Been a great day to test Pair programming/Agile methodology between odin & sabau.We’ve experimented Agile methodology that Kamal Fariz talked about it last year in MMU- click here to read about it. Although one of them will be the ‘taxi driver’ and another one is ‘passenger’, it still a speedy environment and a lot of module for our client have been completed during that 4 days.
We’ll surely practice Agile developement method after this hehe. And that picture of the cat above was taken when the cat is hungry and I fed him/her an Esso Currypuff. So lucky that kitten!
