A few days ago, we went to the beach, which was one of our countless treasured moments. Simply wonderful. Undescribable. Okay, I'll stop there.
Then, there was a time when a couple, walking towards our direction, was looking comfortably attached to one another. They look roughly in their late 40s, who were really in the mood of relaxation happily strolling along the Cherating shore and the funny thing was, my other half started to make suppositions about the couple. Let me try to recall what he actually said; ‘Hmm..You knoe what. They are already married for thousand years and trying to rekindle the relationship or...or... they just got married’. And then came that wink. Lol.
Yup. Sometimes it’s a fun thing to do to just sit and watch people who are around us. I mean, every now and then we can tell or maybe guess about other people just by looking at their expressions and motions. For example, we can actually figure out that this one couple is in some way having an argument eventho they are not particularly arguing. Dig me?
Maybe just from they way they are not talking to each other, their frowns or twitching of the eyelids.. things like that. (am I talking from experience..where someone that barely knows us was actually concerned when we were not entirely in a good mood that day?)
Okay back to the couple, I mean the one we saw on the beach. They did seem very at ease with each other which is something I find abit rare in Malay culture. They were showing affection to each other, in a way that not mushy and yucky... but instead, sweetly. Older married couple that is still obviously in love. One thing that came into my mind at that precise moment was: 'I want that. '
You get what I mean? The affection. The love. No matter how old you are. Period.
After awhile, my eyes kinda glued to the man, who somehow looked abit familiar. 'I think I know this man', and then when the lady next to him turned around and sorta smiled at us, I let out a huge grin. She's that 'cakar harimau' practitioner aka ustazah Bahiyah with her husband, ustaz Wan Akasyah, if I'm not mistaken. I was like, stunned and some how impressed cos' they really practise what they say in their speeches. Which is super cool. Not like some experts who claimed they're the best in marriage counselling and all but yet, do they really mean it?
Like I said earlier, I want that. I want to be a half of a couple that stays together through thick and thin and through many trials, which lead to a great love and an abiding devotion one for the other.
Not impossible, right?
