Nak apa?

This morning I had to go to the bank and at the ATM I met a friend who was with the her cute and adorable 4 year-old boy. So cute he reminds me of Mort from Madagascar 2 and I think he's secretly in love with me too because every time he sees me he will shout out my name on top of his lungs and run to me and plant one big wet sloppy kiss on my cheek. Amacam, penat tak baca ayat yang tak ada tanda koma ni?

Well anyway after yakking for a few minutes her queue number was called and I volunteered to take care of little kiddo and her bags.

So while waiting for his mom, we played set-set-set-bom-bom-bom-yes sir-no sir-one-two-jus! and we were at our fourth round when cute boy said to me loudly:

-Aunty nak pookie!

Everyone at the bank looked at us and smiled. For once I was stumped for words. Apa benda la nak jawab kat budak ni?

-Abang nak apa tadi? Nak makan ye?
-Abang nak pookie? Boleh tak Aunty?

Her mother looked back and saw the flabbergasted look on my face and calmly told her son:

-Bukan pookie sayang. Cookie. Mintak tolong Aunty ambikkan dalam beg Mama.

Kus semangat. Berdebar jugak aku.

Last night I dreamed that I entered into this room in a building I've never been to before. The moment I entered the room, everything went dark and I couldn't see a thing. I started to panic and quickly left the room and ran back to my bedroom. Then I realized that it was all a dream and found my way back out of that place. I could hear myself thinking, "Oh Yati tadi masa tiba-tiba gelap tak nampak apa-apa tu mimpi ngeri je. Rilek la." And felt relieved that I had woken up.

Then I heard the alarm of my hand phone beeping and woke up. At that moment I realized that in my dream, I realized that I had been dreaming and thought I had snapped out of it, when in reality I was still sleeping.

Jika kita kupas dan kupas dan kupas lagi, agak-agaknya how many layers of the human psyche can we find?
