Co-Incidence Knocked 3 Times

This, maybe an old issue - Year 2008. But I had just found out about it yesterday through random reading of the 'Next Blog'.
I do not know where this had headed to but it really stirred my interest - Just sharing with you out there my curiosity.

Kek Coklat
- (by Natasha Hudson)

Saya mahu satu kehidupan
Kamu mahu sesuatu yang lain
Kita tidak dapat makan cek coklat
Jadi kita makan sesama sendiri

So a Natasha Hudson had write a poem. A gifted girl she is. Why not? She has everything which I don't at her age, 25 years old then.
A beautiful girl of Malay-Indonesian and Australian parentage, she's a brainer (degree holder in Graphics and Advertising from the University of Chicago) and multi talented - A model, an actress ('Chermin' is a tv slot I remembered). She had produced 2 poetry books at one go, one of it is 'Puisi Indah Si Pari-Pari'  on Friday 15th June 2007.   

When readers of her children's poetry book found out that one of her work is a direct translation of an English poetry, she defended herself stated that she had not heard of such writer.  link

Cake
- (by Roger McGough)


I wanted one life
You wanted another
We couldn't have our cake
So we ate each other 
Alas, other readers found out not one, but two others' poetry had been plagiarised  by her. Her books were immediately withdrawn from bookshelves.

Si Kura-Kura Kecil
- (by Natasha Hudson)

Ada seekor kura-kura kecil
tinggal di dalam kotak
berenang di tepi tasik
memanjat di atas batu


dia cuba menggigit nyamuk
dia cuba menggigit kutu

dia cuba menggigit berudu
dia cuba menggigit aku


dia berjaya menangkap  nyamuk
dia berjaya menangkap kutu


dia berjaya menangkap berudu
tetapi dia tidak berjaya menangkap aku 

I Have a Little Turtle
- (by Nicholas Vachel Lindsay)


There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in the puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.


He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flee.
He snapped at a minnow.
And he snapped at me.


He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flee.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn't catch me.


Mentega kuning, jelly ungu, jam merah, roti hitam
- (by Natasha Hudson)

Mentega kuning, jellu ungu, jam merah, roti hitam
ratakan tebal
katakan cepat


ratakan tebal
katakan cepat


sekarang ulang
sambil kamu makan

sekarang ulang
sambil kamu makan


janganlah bercakap
bila mulut kamu penuh 

Things We Like To Eat
- (by Mary Ann Hoberman)


Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread.
Spread it thick,
Say it quick.


Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread.
Spread it thicker,
Say it quicker.


Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread.  
Now repeat it, 
While you eat it.


Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread.
Don't talk
With your mouth full!

yg minah kacukan ni copy habis2an tu apasal pula!
dlm bidang wartawan, kalau di'tangkap' copy hasil orang, kena buang kerja.
maksudnya, mungkin boleh gunakan idea orang lain, tapi olahan gunakanlah perkataan sendiri.
buat malu kalau dah jadi gini.

The title was perfect. That should have been lots of embarrassment for her. Though, I couldn't understand her poems, they have some similarities with the English ones...

Nice post, Ummie. Have a good weekend...:)

Rem,
Good for film industry to rope her as an English therapist to her fellow comrades who 'die die must answer interview spice here spice there omputih'

Mr (not) Stupid,
How about you learning Malay? I can see from my crystal coconut bowl that you are a genius in the making.

Changed the cartridge, same concern with grinding. Don't know exactly what to do due to the fact that its 6 years old, and no real repair areas. I could tear it apart and check out it. Many thanks.
