The other day, I left this bag outside my house to be collected by the garbage collector.

But before it could be disposed off, the security guard came by and ♫ ding dong ding dong ♫.  So I went out to see what he wanted and the following is the conversation exchanged between the guard and I:-

Guard: Someone delivered your dog's food and left it outside.

Me: No, the food inside the bag is finished and I have stuffed my rubbish inside to be thrown away.

Guard: But isn't this his (pointing at my dog, Max) food?

Me: Ya but no more food already.

Guard: (while carrying the bag up) But it's heavy.

Me: Ya, rubbish inside.

Guard: Is it? (not believing me, he unzip the bag).  Ah ah, yeah la rubbish only inside.

Guard and me exchanged our smiles and off he went ... *phew*.  Incidentally, this is the same guard that rang my doorbell the last time to inform me to keep the clothes as it was drizzling.  Isn't it nice to have such caring people around?  I do hope the guards continue to be on their alert as they are now!

(By the way, the above conversation was carried out in Malay).

Hi Kak Teh! Long time no see.
I only wish there would be more concern guards like him around. Ang pows would have to wait but in the meantime have given him cakes and biscuits. He and his team are so appreciative of our little gestures and their broad smiles when we greet them really make my day.
