Neighbours

Neighbours.

Unless you live in a secluded place, you surely have one. Surely the neighbour must be human because if it is a monkey, you must be living in a zoo.

Anyways, dad decided to renovate his KL house. He told me, “hey, why not?”. So, I’m okay with it. Currently the progress is on 30%. Now, here comes the problem.

My parents place is a small malay community on the upskirts of KL. They been there when the place was still trees and bushes and KLCC was still a place for horse. Along the years, they already known all kinds of people at that place, north south east west and especially people living next to them. Or so they thought.

Month before the renovation, dad already went from house to house along our road informing the neighbours about the renovation. Yeah, all people are okay with it. He also told the contractors to cover left and right side of the house with tarp. For a small construction, it is enough.

My left neighbour is a bit of busybody. He don’t make that much of a fuss but, he likes to see and ask this and that. I guess that is typical of retiree. My dad also like that. Sometimes that guy will follow the foreman just to see what’s he up to.

My right neighbour, now this is a piece of work. Sometimes in the morning he would just scold the foreman because his front side of the house was dusty, his roof got sand, etc. etc. I was like, WTF this dude problems? One day he tell the foreman about not to do cornish (ID term) on the roof because that thing will go into his house area.

Pissed off, the foreman take a measuring tape and measure the width of that guys house and my dads house. He told the guy, that his house and his cornish already went into my dads house area and scolding the guy back about his ‘neighbourly’ attitude. Haihhh.

Maybe the dude should live in an island. Nobody will disturb him there. Many people in that area already done a renovation. Sure sometimes it kinda messy and noisy but for the spirit of neighbourhood, we don’t mind it as long its ok.

Hmm, about the guys cornish, maybe I’ll poke the guy a bit about it and saying something about a lawsuit. See what he have to say. Lol
