Merajuk

Interesting that there is no english word for merajuk. Why arr? Omputih tak pandai merajuk ker?

Well...I'm a kuat-merajuk-kinda- person. For as long as I can remember. Masa kecik-kecik, i would merajuk to make sure Bapak would get me the things I want. I recall one occasion we jalan-jalan dalam kereta (Bapak does that alll the time - take us on spins in the car - going nowhere in particular). I wanted candyfloss but Bapak said it was out of our way. So, i merajuk. refused to speak until he made one mega turn towards the shop that sells the candy!!

When I was bigger - working in KL - living on my own - I would merajuk if Bapak makes too much (according to my standard) fuss about my so-called social life. I merajuk by not calling him and not going back to visit. In the end, Bapak wrote to me - apologising - explaining why he said the things he said - how he will not repeat them if it angers me so. I cried buckets reading that letter and went home soon enough!

Unfortunately I married a man who doesn't understand the concept of merajuk. siggghhhh...A man who treats silent treatment with another silent treatment. A man who would make fun of the merajuk wife in front of the children. Apparently his style of memujuk! hampessssss! Lagi stress dibuatnya!

Oh, but i still merajuk. I still rasa jauh hati when people doesn't seem to notice me...doesn't invite me to gatherings and get togethers...doesn't send me nice greetings on FB when they send it to others...when kawan-kawan from Geneva balik Malaysia and for some reason did not even call...when husband dear doesn't remember our anniversary...doesn't remember to give me duit raya...bila anak2 tunjuk sangat they prefer to balik Melaka than Pahang....

hehehe...banyak pulak sebabnya, ek?!

yes, i still merajuk but now, i pujuk diri sendiri...

Ade la in English, "sulking".

Yang takde in English ni ha, "Mengada". Susah wo nak explain kat Mat Salleh that word.

:D

yes, i suppose "sulking" can be used. i ni memang tak abih-abih kecik ati ngan orang but i don't make them known anymore. Simpan dalam hati jer...like i said, pujuk diri sendiri jer...:-)

Muzal...dear girl...you're growing old and orang tua kalau merajuk buruk betul rupanya...so jangan la merajuk selalu-selalu sangat kkk....hah! jangan la merajuk pulak dengan comment I ni...

I think the english word yg paling dekat in meaning is "sulking" kut.

My closest friend and cousin (now dah arwah) was like that, kuat sangat merajuk, on little things. I also used to have a roomate yg kuat merajuk. Believe me, penat layan org kuat merajuk ni... kadang2 you just don't know what set them off. And for us yg dirajukkan ni, we feel that we always have jaga perasaan the other person but then the other person doesn't really care about doing the same to us.

In short, be kind to your loved ones... just say what you feel and make them understand. Buang masa je merajuk ni... =)

treat merajuk people with some counselling ..on why they should not merajuk...are they any sessions around yet? It will all depends on the profile of the people.. some are "Dominance", "influencing", "Conscientiousness" and "Steadiness".
Those under the influencing profile can become a good "pujuker". What is your hubby's profile...? Let him undergo a profile test..then you will understand better...Cheers!
