Menjual Pantun (Pantun Selling)

Dear All

As part of the project please buy these pantun at your pace by end of Mar. 2009:

 

Makan nasi berlauk ikan,

Minum air bersendawa pula;

Kalau benar tuan katakan,

Perangai lama datang semula?

 

Rice and fish dish eat well,

Belch after watering ’em down;

If it is true as you would tell,

Why your old ways seems abound?

 

 

 

 

Bulan purnama terang malam,

Pungguk merindu di pokok sena;

Masuk rumah tidak bersalam,

Adat lama hilang ke mana?

 

The night lit aglow in full moon,

At a nearby tree an owl perched;

Entering the house with silence looms,

Losing manners long preserved.

 

Kalau tuan pergi ke tanjung,

Belikan saya kain pelekat;

Kalau benar tiba ke penghujung,

Mengapa masih teringat-ingat?

 

If Sir would visit the cape,

A Malay sarung is my asking;

If the end is really our fate,

Why is this mind still recalling?
