(Originally written on 25 January 2008, at Guoman, Port Dickson)
“Aku suka senja.” Tiga perkataan keluar dari mulut setelah sejam dia membisu.
“Kenapa?” Aku tanya dia.
“Langit dan laut jadi satu…”
Snippet of that decade-long conversation flashes on my mind as I sit here watching dusk turns itself into night.
Sea of ebony kisses the feet of the sky before my eyes. He is right, after all.
If Port Dickson has ever let you down for being too touristy; or of dying an untimely death for want of better care – spend a night a Guoman and walk down to their privately maintained beach. You would find a long stretch of pearly sand, untainted by human activities.
I could describe this moment until dawn but I am going to pencil off, shut my eyes and breathe this crispy air before it ends. After all, sunset at Teluk Kemang is best immortalized with lenses for mere words could never do justice to this beauty.
