The floating Jemput/cenkodok



BANANA BALLS/CENKODOK PISANG/JEMPUT PISANG



 If you are ready with a piece of paper and a pen, the next sentence would make you drop your pen and put your paper aside cause I am not gonna write the recipe on how to make the floating Jemput... This is far way cooler....

When I was in UiTM kuantan doing my foundation course in Tesl, I was attending a course which called OPKIM (OPERASI KHIDMAT MASYARAKAT) where we’ve been to the village named Kampung Acheh, and eventually being adopted to the family of those villagers. As soon as we arrived at the Kampung, we were gathering around the mosque of Kampung Acheh which situated beside the school of Kampung Acheh which initially we thought it was  a kindergarten school because the size of the school is very small which equivalent to the nursery school. Well as usual, we need to listen to the speech of our university representative and whatsoever and things were getting boring and boring until the head of villagers took his turn to deliver his speech. He was damned funny, I could still remember he tried his best to speak in a formal language but still the thick accent of his kampung’s slang got better of him. 

 Let’s skip it, well on the second day, my other friends whom were living with other adopted family which I could say their family was far much cooler than our family as they brought us on their boat compared to our family as there were a lot of do’s and don’ts, decided not to waste this golden opportunity we succumbed to my friend’s invitation to his adopted family house. This is a jackpot for us as we wouldn’t get this kind of chances back in our hometown. They took us around the Pahang’s river which was extremely huge like you were in ocean. Right after that, for the first time in my life, I swam in the river, I meant in the real huge river... Can you imagine that?? Well not to be boast I’m a good swimmer (period! *awkward*)... We were holding a competition among us to see which of us could swim better and faster, and while having the competition in the river near to the river bank Alif Burhanuddin a.k.a Alip accidentally swallowed the river water which later on followed by me.

Now the story begins, due to the contamination of the river water, we got sick as we have swallowed some of the water. Right after that, Alip was the earliest person who succumbed to the virus which eventually got him into the water-closet every ten minutes. Then later on, I started to give in, and crawled for my way to the toilet. So for the whole day we were like shifting and racing to the toilet whenever we felt something that was not right going on to our bowel movements. Knowing the fact that tomorrow is gonna be our last staying with the family, we decided to give them something to symbolise our thanks for their hospitality and as our appreciation. Early that morning, afraid that we might look for the toilet in the town, we emptied our bowel very early that morning. We supposed to take the bus to go to Pekan Town, but my so-called adopted father willingly to sacrifice himself to drive us to the Pekan. These two young ladies known as Maryam a.k.a Bayam and Amira Anis Ahmad a.k.a a’a (what a weird)  whom love to seek out the advantage on gentlemen, handsome guy like us, asked us to fetch them up in front of their adopted family house (girls...demand).

As soon as we arrived at the town, we quickly made our way to the only one store there which I don’t remember the name of it. We bought something for them and then straightaway we went to bus stop to take the bus to Kampung Acheh. While waiting for the bus, Maryam who was a big fan of jemput/cenkodok bought Rm 2 of it which I don’t really love. Again, Alip wasn’t looking enjoy and started to ask people for the toilet, well we knew very much about it already so we were just laughing at him. Poor him! Done with his business he came in and joined us who were sitting waiting for the next bus. As soon as the bus arrived, we jumped on the bus with the gifts which have been wrapped earlier on. I paid them for the tickets and settled down on a seat. We sat side-to-side so that it would be easy for us to proceed to our usual stuff, gossiping!! While on the bus, Alip was just sitting there next to window helplessly while a’a, me and maryam were indulging ourselves talking loudly on the bus and we noticed that there were some people looking at us but we just don’t care...

While we were sharing the thoughts, all of a sudden I could feel my knee was suddenly being squeezed by a hand, I turned around and it was Alip while his other hand covering his mouth. A’a wasn’t doing anything and yet she didn’t know of Alip’s condition while Maryam was scattering around her world, I was the only person who noticed that, afraid that he might get my new shoes dirty with all of his slimy toxins I quickly grabbed the plastic bag which at that time maryam was holding it tightly and I gave him...

Just before Alip do anything, Maryam on top of her voice “ Cenkodok aku” while a’a looked on stunningly, I was like ‘ewwww’ then everything is too late as tonnes of green-yellowish, slimy, slippery flowing out from alip’s mouth into the plastic bag which contains the ‘cenkodok’ and I could see it was floating in alip’s vomit... YUCK! Ewwwwwwwwwww!! Amazingly Alip just smiling..

Well, now all of us have gone into our own route, like Maryam in UM, A’a in UKM, Alip in UiTM Shah Alam and me in IPG KSM...knowing you guys is something that I’ll treasure until the last breath of mine....


I’d love to dedicate this song to you guys ‘Graduation-Vitamin C’.....I miss u ol!!
