What Pakcik received (Pt 1) – Birds’ sayings


I think most of us, from time to time, do receive from friends interesting items, slides, pictures etc which are meant to be shared without infringement of any copyright. I do not see any reasons why I should not share what I have received; and for this reason I am starting a new series – ‘What Pakcik received’. We will see how it goes with this first one.

The following is one Pakcik received from an old friend overseas. Titled ‘various birds and sayings’ is a set of 31 slides, 29 of which are sayings. I enjoy watching these slides against the enchanting old favourite tune ‘unchained melody’.

Click where it is shown to change slides and enjoy the music. At the same time give some thought to the sayings. Like what I have done you may like to pick, say, three sayings you like best.

Taniah for the innovative and pleasant

SALAM SYAWAL,
THANKS FOR SHARING

Dear Pak Cik,
This is great! I like 'Elvis' version of 'Unchained Melody' But sadly, I couldn't hear your version nor access any of the slides. This was the message I got instead, 'Oops! there seemed to be some problems loading etc etc..'

I'll try again failing which I'll ask my son to see what can be done!

KotaStar,

I thought this could be interesting. The sayings make us think, don't they?

Al-Manar said...

Luahfikiran,

Salam to you too, Dato'. Do come around as I look forwards to your comments, be they critical or otherwise. We ought to be at an age when we can give and accept criticism equally well.

Al-Manar said...

Hank,

I am truly sorry to hear of your difficulty which, frankly, I was hoping against hope no one would find the kind of difficulty you have faced. I found similar difficulty to post this and had to get my daughter's help to do it. I wonder how many of our friends have this trouble.

Lovely birds and beautiful sayings! Did I hear it correctly, that one of those adorable birds seemed to be humming ..... "intai aku terbang di awan, lada di rumah usah pipiskan....."

kaykuala said...

Dear Pak Cik,
Got it! Floyd Cramer's piano recital is perfect, soft and soothing music.

Btw, these are beautiful pics. Gives me an idea. The #5, the saying that you like, has a grey coloured one and seems good for a sketch.

Hank

Al-Manar said...

Temuk,

Itulah sebsbnya saya percaya mereka yang berpengalaman hendaklah terus berbakti dengan menulis dan melukis apa yang terkandung dalam fikiran untuk yang muda muda meneliti dan menambil iktibar.

Your hearing is perfect, picking up the softer tones that many fail to do.

Al-Manar said...

Hank,

I am truly pleased that you have succeeded and, on top of it, found one for you to sketch.

Salam Pakcik,

'WISDOM IS THE REWARD FOR LISTENING OVER A LIFETIME', but many of us think that

'IT IS THE VERY THINGS THAT WE THINK WE KNOW, THAT KEEP US FROM LEARNING WHAT WE SHOULD KNOW'.

I suppose many of us, regardless young and old does not realise being a good listener. Don't they, Pakcik.
