The water was just right, warm and nice. I’m with one hot young woman; bubbles are everywhere, with rose petal spread out on top of the bubble. Together we were sipping Ribena (alcohol haram what?). Who would have thought I would ever get the chance taking a bubble bath with Bunga Cinta Lestari?
“OK dik, makcik mau kasi mandi sudah ni”

Remember my previous post where my mom went to see someone and was told that my spirit was with late Erlinna? Mom actually went to see this aunty somewhere in Sembulan area. Well, after finishing about two and a half litres of air jampi, aunty told my mom that I need to be bath. I didn’t really know the purpose at first but I figure it must be that floral bath most people have talked about, the floral bath that was dubbed as mandi jodoh. Honestly, I don’t really believe in that stuff but since mom went to so much trouble arranging it, then why not.
So last Saturday I went to meet the aunty with mom. There was already another person there waiting to be bath by aunty, I was next. Waiting for my turn didn’t take that long, although I did manage to answer a few comments on my facebook status. There were no flower petals as I anticipate; instead there was a bucket of water with something in it. I know and remember the smell but I can’t quite remember what it was. I know it has some medicinal purpose. Then aunty starts muttering something before she pour water on me, twice. After the “ritual” was finished, she told me to continue taking a bath using the remaining water in the bucket. Well since it was already 7pm and I haven’t taken my bath, I just continue pouring the water.
I was told after I had put on my clothes that all this while, Erlinna’s spirit had followed me. At this point I can hear the twilight zone theme song. Her spirit was there when aunty start to bath me. Yes, I sounded like I am very perverted. According to aunty, her following me had disrupt the course of my destiny path, and this is not good for me. There is some truth in there. That’s explain four of my friends, 3 of them never even meet Erlinna, had dreamt of something that involved her, and two of them sense that she don’t want to part from me.
But I have a different theory. I think that the reason she’s following me is that she wanted to help me find the one who I would spent the rest of my time with and she would never rest until I actually find one. I pray every day that she will rest in peace and let me deal with my destiny the way I see fit. I will try to alms Yassin and Kursi for her whenever I can. Please dear, I’m trying to let you go now, so you need to let me go too.
On other note, I’m seriously not a romantic person to be with. If you plan to have bubble bath with me, expect this to happen.
