Pengubat Rindu...kampungku tercinta

Quoting from an unknown source:

THE MIRACLE OF 'MUJO'

Mujo or mujur in Standard Bahasa means "fortunate" or "lucky". In
Terengganu it means more than that. Mujo is an attitude, a testament to
the optimism of the Terengganu folks. I believe that Terengganunese are
optimistic. I haven't heard of any suicides there yet. No news
whatsoever of people jumping down from coconut trees or drinking expired
budu (preserved anchovy thick sauce) neat in order to expire themselves.

You must remember that Terengganu people lived with ferries, morning
papers that came in the night and other things people in the West Coast
take for granted. In spite of doing without 4D shops, discos, malls or
Hot spot-enabled coffee houses, they are surviving well without any
mental hospital in sight. All because they have mujo.

Like I mentioned previously, mujo encapsulate a philosophy in itself. It
means one should thank God that it is not worse. Time for an illustration.

(Cut to a scene of 3 village ladies in their kemban washing clothes by
the village well)

Mok Long Selamoh: Guane doh adik mung Mek? (How is your brother Mek?)
Mok Teh Som : Bakpe pulok adik dia? (What happened to her brother?)
Mok Long Selamoh: Laaa! Mung dok tau ke Som? (You don't know Som?)
Mok Teh Som : Dok tau setarang kita. (I don't know anything)
Mok Long Selamoh: Adik Mek ni kena langgor lori kemareng. (Mek's brother
was knocked down by a lorry yesterday)
Mek Beso : Bukang lori Mok Long, beng ikang! (It wasn't a lorry Mok
Long, it was a fish van)
Mok Long Selamoh: Mujo bukang lori! (Lucky it wasn't a lorry)
Mok Teh Som : Pah tu? Terok ke? (Then? Was he seriously injured?)
Mek Beso : Kaki patah sebelah...... (One leg was broken)
Mok Teh Som : Mujo dok patoh dua dua (Lucky both legs weren't broken)
Mok Long Selamoh : Tu pong mujo dreba beng dang brek. (It was lucky that
the van driver braked in time)
Mek Beso : Mujo beng tu dok laju.. (Lucky the van wasn't going fast..)
(Fade to black.)
If both legs were broken, the response would be "Mujo dok pecoh
pala"(Lucky the head wasn't broken). If the head WAS broken, the
response would be "Mujo dok mati" (Lucky he didn't die). If the worst
happened and the brother died, the mujo would still surface. "Mujo lah
bukang adik kita" (Lucky it wasn't my brother).

You get the drift.....
Mujo. A nice word. Adopt it. Embrace it. It will preserve your sanity.

Pernah gi KSB..terdengar ada orang cakap kat talipon..."Mat, pikap line wang..." (One in English jadi wang dalam loghat Trengganu).
