When we moved from Miri to Oman, we gave away n sold off almost every bulky items that we had including cars. But there is only one item that I was really reluctant to let go. It’s a cabinet made from kayu jati. Me n hubby are not really into this kayu jati furniture. In Miri, the kayu jati furnitures are so cheap n beautiful n almost all houses there have at least one. I managed to persuade my hubby to buy one for me!
I really took good care of it n everybody in the house knew that cabinet was like my ‘treasure’. This cabinet has been shipped from Miri n kept in the storage for 4 years while we were in Oman n then resided in my new house store room for 1 year.
When recovered our house had being attacked by Cik Anai-Anai most of our boxes full with books/documents got damaged. The damaged didn’t only affect our storage item but also the electrical wires. When I saw all that I didn’t gave so much hope to this cabinet. Those creepy nuisance bugs must have attacked my cabinet as well.
I never bother to open n check on it till today. Tomorrow people will start cleaning my house n I need to empty the store room. I asked helped from workers there to carry it out from the store room n unpacked it.
I screamed happily when I saw it. Rasa mcm nak peluk tapi nanti over ah pulak. Sure mat indon ni cakap tak betul makcik ni! The cabinet was still intact n look good. It’s still shining n like new. I immediately fell in love with it back. I touched n caressed the cabinet n felt so overwhelming about it.
The problem now is I don’t know where to put this cabinet. All our bedrooms are designed with built-in wardrobe. The concept design of my house is modern contemporary. And this jati cabinet is surely way way out from the concept.
