I often see it gliding, far in the deep blue sky.
Does it have a house to rest, is it somewhere near?
Jom kita gi cari rainbow Ma, Anin nak tangkap dia!
I woke up one Saturday morning earlier than the norm,
Kiter nak pergi mana ma? My daughter asked me curiosly.
Are we going to Mak Da's house to play with Isha and Dini?
My son said Yay! jom je kakak, nanti mama changed her mind,
Hurry up kids! I said, we have a rainbow to find.
All our bags were packed and we were ready to go,
We left our house around 11am or so,
with a map in hand, knapsacks full of hope,
and noisy kids at the back for a mother to cope.
And so our search for the rainbow soon commenced,
chased it to the beach with our feet in the sand,
in the sky we stared but nothing came to pass,
we ran into the sea, find a rainbow we must.
We soon got tired, in the water we took a dip,
braving the splashes, which Anin had a few sips.
"Bestla Chemerlang ni Ma," it was the funniest thing,
to hear Anin said Chemerlang instead of Cherating!
The rainbow's not here, let's give it a chase,
maybe tomorrow but we must do it in a haste.
Perhaps the next town has it, we knew it'd be fun,
to chase the rainbow all the way to Kemaman!
I have always loved Trengganu, it's a special place,
the food, the people, culture full of grace,
We didn't see however, the rainbow up in the sky,
but the colours came mostly from fruits sold at the gerai.
Bought some fruits to be enjoyed near the garden,
shared them with some friendly folks from England,
It was nice meeting them, especially Brian from Manchester,
captured some nice shots, of all of us together.
Maybe the rainbow resides at some place nice,
where people come and pay a heavenly price,
just to laze around and be generously fed,
there's only one place as such and it's called Club Med!
To club med we drove into, one fine evening,
hoping to wake up in a comfy bed the very next morning,
but the money we had was only enough to pay,
for club med's fridge magnets but not for a stay.
The rainbow hues we still managed to see,
of red, orange, other colours aplenty,
from the chairs on the decks to the greens on the ground,
just like a rainbow, abundant colours abound.
We left the place full of sorrow,
No place to sleep, where would we wake up tomorrow.
We drove off not knowing where these feet would rest,
Trotting down the road, trying to make the best.
The kids fell asleep and we had a plan,
continued our journey where entertainment never ceased to end.
We have chased the rainbow to Kamaman, Kuantan and Cherating,
it was time to see the rainbow in the highlands Genting.
We finally caught the rainbow after 36 hours of chase,
The colours of rainbows are easy to trace.
You have to believe that rainbows are in the things which you see,
from the skies, the sea, the food and the air that you breathe.
