Berjumpa Pak Samad si wira bukit, kelmarin di PKNS Shah Alam. Rugi rasanya tak pakai pakaian yang lebih senonoh dan mengenakan 'cologne' sebelum pergi menziarah PKNS.


Saya: Assalamualaikum, Dato'. Boleh bergambar bersama? I'm a fan!
Pak Samad: Waalaikumussalam. (berhenti membelek majalah) Boleh-boleh!
(Saya dan Pak Samad pandang 'kamera-telefon' milik Chip)
Saya: Terima kasih, Dato'. Semoga berjaya dalam isu PSMI, ya! (bersalaman, pegang tangan kiri Dato')
Pak Samad: Oh. Terima tasih, terima kasih.

A. Samad Said. Berpeluh buat 5 minit. Ni belum jumpa Tun Mahathir. Gulp.

p.s: Terfikir untuk membaca 68 Soneta Pohon Gingko dan Salina sekali lagi.

I feel like going home tonight. It's a child-like feeling; when you're hurt, you'll always go back and cry at home. A natural cycle, I must say.

Sometimes in life, you will feel the emptiness engulfed you alive. There is no reasons, no pre-signs. Completely without warning and it's just go and - wham! - that was it.

The memories floored you.

Sometimes, there's a hole remains in your heart despite whatever you had in your palm at this moment in time. A hole that sometimes will let all the joy and happy feelings flushed out down through your veins into somewhere else. And the only thing left is that empty hole, with the feeling of remorse and shame. The misdeeds, the shouting and bickering, laughters and tears, jokes and anger; all jumbled together, ready to crush you down to the bones. For shame, brother!

Sometimes, you wished you can glue everything back together. Even if it will look less perfect, it would still be there, at least. How you hate the life you live now. You hated how hard you've been trying to put the best facade everyday, just to be accepted or to accept others. Being so damn pretentious. The same old routines, everyday. The same, beautiful disaster. So beautiful indeed.

Sometimes, you just have to feel the pain. Feel the razor-blade memories injure yourself. At least, after you felt the agony and pain, you'll always know that you're still alive. And still a human, after all.

Sometimes you just need someone who can see right through you. And I need it now.

A Federal Express (FedEx) cargo plane crashed and burst into towering inferno as it landed at Narita International Airport in Tokyo on March 23, 2009.

Two pilots were flying and both lost their lives.

God bless them souls.

This is the spanking new Agnes Monica's video, "Godai Aku Lagi". A bit like J.Lo , plus Moulin Rouge, and at the very end, Charlize Theron's Aeon Flux.

One word, AWESOME!

Yeah, I know the quality of the picture is terrible beyond words, but just bare with it! Haha! I took this pics when I was having Milo Ais at mamak stall.

These are the pictures of the owner of BoOnga shoes being interviewed LIVE in Wanita Hari Ini this noon. Fuiyoh. Boonga is getting big, I tell you! And to Firdaus Putra and his awek, Aisyah, congratulations! and I'm your no. 1 fan (walaupun xbeli kasut satu pun lagi!) hahaha!

Visit (and order the shoes) them here!

p.s: Yang penting, made in UiTM. ahahaha!

p.s.s: Kena baca Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad asap!

Catastrophe. Major catastrophe it is!

I'd just realized that I accidentally deleted several folders that making my Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac not working anymore. Yes, Microsoft Word is included. I have lots of assignments to do, and proposals too. Now I have to wait for Mr. Nel, master of all pirates to come back home and download me the new ones.

Shit may happen on Macs. Period.

p.s: Ridhwan, are you using the pirated Mac software too?

p.s.s: Don't tell me you've been using the pricey original one!

Today we had a long, long journey, from Shah Alam to KLIA and straight to Presinct 2 Putrajaya in Chip's little Yellow Mini Coop (Kelisa, it is. haha)! We went straight to KLIA to accompany Chip to meet his friend whose going to Japan to pursue his studies. And as usual, when it comes to going airports, I will not resist. I even can't sleep, waiting anxiously to be there.

There were about 60 to 80 Malaysian students, boys and girls, left Malaysia for Japan, casually clad in jet-black coats and pants, hunting for their dreams. Like any other usual departure, emotions were exchanged, tears shed, and family and friends bid tear-jerking goodbyes. And I met Kinah there, and we wandered here and there and did practice a little drama.


Here's the situation:

Hundreds of friends and family were waving, to the students. And Acad, Kinah and I crept into the sad, emotional waving crowd and start a little telenovela;

Kinah: Siapa nak tanggungjawab kat baby aku ni. Siapa? (waving aimlessly)

Moja: Sabar, Kinah. Sabar! Dia tak bertanggungjawab!!!(waving jugak)

Acad: Ko terpaksa mintak bapak dia tanggungjawab kat baby ni! (still waving)

(abang, pakcik, makcik kat sebelah pandang-pandang, mungkin berfikir, siapakah diantara budak-budak nak gi Jepun tu yang telah 'mengandungkan' Kinah. Dan kami berlalu tergelak-gelak tanpa rasa bersalah). Hahaha! Madam Rosalind must be proud of us three.


Oh. Airports. We always have this bittersweet relationship, no? Even though I failed to be one of the "metal-tubes" drivers, I fret not. Another time, maybe. So people, baffle not. I'm still not going anywhere. Hahaha!

p.s: The little drama at the airport is my brainchild. Genius! Ahahaha!

p.s.s: I met a female pilot at the bay for the first time and I find it sexy.

Chip, Acad and I started our journey to Kelana Jaya as soon as we had our lunch and of course, performed our Solat Jumaat. We headed to KJ rather aimlessly, and crazily looking for Wisma Mayang, an old, hideous pink building that can collapse in any seconds, I think. After numerous of pit-stops and QnA sessions with the locals, we FINALLY found it!

There are like thousands of lip-smacking books there, on the tables and racks, ready and calling my names. Geez. So I quickly mosey around, from racks to tables, and back again on the racks. The (old) place is like a sauna, I tell you! Maybe I'd lost pounds by sweating like a pig in there.

I finally bought only three books to quench my lusty thirst! Hahaha! and Acad, (who has been madly in love with Siti since last night), bought 3 books too. Of course, it burns a hole in my pocket, since I'm not a son of a Datuk or YB, but it's more than enough. I think. Better little than none!

I bought myself these books;

  • Brida by Paulo Coelho
  • The Tao of Writing by Ralph L.Wahlstrom
  • How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gill

Oh! Books, glorious books!

It's 4:02 in the morning. I'd just 're-green' my blog in conjunction with Earth Hour 2009. After 3 hours of copying and pasting, downloading and uploading, finally I did it, and I just Love the 'green' touch of it.

Better get my sleep now!
Vote for Earth!!

Take a picture. It'll last longer. And I do believe in that!

Photographer Ryan Marshalls takes weekly photos of her wife and his unborn child. Cool, isn't? He even put some personal notes beside each photos and for me, it's ultra-creative, no?

Maybe I should consider doing this to my 'future' wife! (not clad in SUCH outfit for sure!)

The problem is; I don't even know who she is!


This is so random.
