good fences make good neighbour

A young couple rented the house on my left.
Both the couple are very friendly but we rarely bumped into one another. The wifey is a doctor. She works on shift hour. The hubby works in a Public University, from my observation his working hour is flexible. Then I just come home on weekends, the day they sometimes wasn't home at all.

I visited them twice. First in January last year to "see" their firstborn child (masa tu dah 2,3 bulan dah umur baby tu pun, x perasan dah bersalin pun) and somewhere late last year to celebrate the birthday.

Anyway I haven't seen Dr Hani lately. 2 weeks ago it was raining heavily but she did not come out to bring in the baby mat. I took and left it at their gate the next day, but still Hani did not stopped by to say hello.

This morning I saw the hubby taking the Baby for a morning walk.

Me : (in a small voice) dia nak g jalan mana ni?
Jiran: Nak tengok kucing. Dia ni kalau menangis nampak kucing terus senyap.
Me : Oh ye ke? Mana Hani? Dah lama akak tak nampak.
Jiran: Dia kat Trengganu sekarang.
Me : Ooo patutla.. bila dia balik?
Jiran: Selamanya-selamanya la..
Me : hah kenapa pulak?
Jiran: Dia dapat tukar sana. Saya pun nanti tgh nak mintak tukar jugak..
Me : Sejak bila? Akak ingat pergi kursus je bila lama x nampak ni
Jiran: Awal bulan 2 lagi. Tapi anak dgn saya. Dia keje long hours, kesian..
Me : Keje doktor.... baguslah.. baik hati awak, kesian Hani la..
Jiran: Dia nak bawa jugak, tapi saya la tak bagi.. susah nanti.. penat jugak jaga anak ni ye..
Me : Haha
Jiran: Baru la rasa mcm mana mak ayah kita rasa. Ni baru anak sorang ni.. hahah
Me : Tapi akak ada kalau weekend. Anything I could help kasi tau ye..

That's it.
I excused myself and headed to Kedai Xerox.
Oh I forgot something..
I don't even know the hubby's name, neither Dr Hani's full name.
I bet they do not know my name either, coz I m sure for them I m "Akak Sebelah Rumah"
