A Day At Irama Beach, Bachok.


"bubbles + clear sea water + white sand = beach time"

Alhamdulillah, such for a long time I felt that my family had not spent a quality time at a beach. Although there were activities before at Sudara Beach Reasort, but it was a family day of Maybank of Kota Bharu branch. But it was a resort. I much prefer beach sides. Laying the plastic carpet (tikar) and sit together with family member for a while and eat something before went to swim.

At least take a few of bites of meals; light or heavy it does not matter. As long as you support your stomach with nutritions even a little, it would prevent from any stomach ache. Remember also to stretch for at least 5 minutes before swimming to avoid cramp or inflexibility.

Usually my mother prepared at least three meals; fried rice, fried mi and sandwich. My father would prepare a bottle or two of plain water to wash the feet and to heat up the car's engine. Me and my siblings would prepare other necessary items such as the "tikar" and drinking waters as well as cups and plates.

The surrounding of Irama Beach has changed a lot. Seriously, I think almost about 10 to 13 years I have not been to Irama Beach. It has transformed to nicer place to have a quality together with families. I am not joking. They, the current state government has improved in a lot of aspects. Providing not only the facilities of fire and rescue house, built a course way along the beach side from beach erosion and high waves. Not only that, they put a staircase to ease the visitors from the high course way.

Ah, I already miss the beach side. It would be much better with a BARBECUE at the beach side. Ah~! [Poof, daydreaming]

Me and family went to Irama Beach together with a family of our dearest neighbor. They have two lovable kids. I had a chance once during my long vacation after my SPM in training to raise a child for the day he was born, and that would be Muhammad Fadhlullah with a nick name of Mat. The little brother of him is named with Muhammad Fatah Syahiran with the nick name of syah. They are very close to me and to some extent the little one is a bit jealous that I always pamper his big brother and we always end up fighting childishly.

Mat is so close that he would wait for me if he knows I would be home. He would always like to imitate what ever I do. Gardening, to go out, to buy decoration fish such as gold fishes and wherever I go, he would follow. Even picking up him from his kindergarten would be my routine during my holidays as he requested. We share another same interest which is to eat at fast food, McDonald. He likes cars and other vehicles very much especially lorries. His first ambition was to be the head of a lorry companies. If not even a driver lorry of sugar would be alright. To some extent he is always making the sound of a turbo car. Vrooommmm..~ He is a serious type kid and spontaneous also. His acts is way far more mature than his age. Seriously I am not joking. When I am not around at house, he would come to my house to visit my mother as she is all alone when my father goes to work. He always concerns to those close to him, my family.

"Muhammad Fadhlullah: Peace you ALL"

This one is a bit different from Mat. Shah is more close to my father than me to my father. [What a shame of me as a son to my father.] He always follows my father. He always punches and kicks me whenever he has the chance. He is still angry from an incident that his brother, Mat pushed him aside when he wanted me to pamper him as I was with his brother. Mat said, "Abe Harith abe mat, syah gi ngan abe Dan la." [Dan is the nick name of my youngest brother - blood related.] He was frustrated and cried a bit. I felt sorry for him. Then soon after that, he seems to have some grudge over me. I know, kids do have feelings like others and kids nowadays are more different than our times ago. They are more clever than us. Thats why we can not show bad things in front of them or they would imitate the bads o easily. To teach them with good deeds at this age is the most crucial times. They can absorb easily and put a stress to good things in their minds. Like the old sayings of Malay; "Melentur buluh biarlah dari rebungnya". He is a spontaneous and funny person. Different to his big brother, he is even more "wild", I mean Mat is more gentle than Syah. He has the eyes to attract girls with a sweet mouth at the very young age. Some times kids a way better than to some adults.

"Muhammad Fatah Syahiran: Cool~"

The similarity that they have is that, they are all active kids. They like to play together even playing boxing or sparing. Well, boys, you know need to be trained to be a tough man. He he he. In raining season we like to play in the heavily down pour of rain together. What? An adult also needs some times to have fun like kids. Mat always imitate what I do and Syah would imitate Mat. It is a chain process of siblings in growing up together.

I never forget to carry along my camera wherever and whenever I go, especially with my family. We never know what would happen and what kinds of adventures or memorable scenes lie ahead. I really am satisfied with my camera's quality, but to some extent my laptop's graphic card is not compatible. That is why in some of my collections of photos there are photos that have dark spots or shady parts. Below are some snapshots that I risked my beloved Lumix-TZ3 for a lot of worthy memorable pictures during our quality times at Irama Beach:

"Syah is a bit stiff and Mat is jumping"

"Syah is watching Mat jumps over the wave"

"Snapshot :D"

adik beradik memang selalu macam tu. nak lebih daripada yang lain. saling imitate, but at the same time compete with each other.

macam2 mana pun, because of blood relation, i found out that hubungan adik beradik memang istimewa. mcm2 mana pun kita compete atau menjelesi, kita tetap akan sayang dgn adik beradik sendiri melebihi orang lain.

byk giler gambar. PC kat opis pun x larat nk display semua. hehehe.

bilekah kita akan ke beach lagi bersama2 wahai best buddy ku. jom2 :D
