"Not a good idea..."

1. Watching a very good horror movie, alone, at pass midnight...



Totally not a good idea... Don't believe me?? Try watching the Siamese horror movie "Coming Soon" or "4bia" alone in ur room at night... See how long u'll last before dashing out of the room and turning on all the lights in house... the movie "4bia" has four parts... the last part is the scariest...



2. Forgetting to pee or eating food that can possibly cause diarrhea before a very long journey... 

Not a good idea... Just imagine this - u're having diarrhea, u're miles away from ur destination and there is no sign of a toilet near by... U'll feel extremely cold... Cold sweat will tricker down ur forehead... U'll have goosebumps... U'll keep on farting... Then, when u finally found a toilet, the closer u get to the toilet bowl, the more pain u feel... 



What else??

Journey

In a week, I traveled by bus from Terengganu to Melaka and then back to Terengganu before going to Kedah and lastly to Melaka again... I kept telling myself that I was like George Clooney in "Up in the Air"... 

Anyway, I left my comfy home in Terengganu to my second home in Melaka to attend an interview... During the bus ride, I couldn't help but curse the distance of both states and the fact that I had to sit in the bus for more than six hours...

Luckily, I had my lovely Walkman phone with me... I spent hours listening to My Chemical Romance's "Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys"... The album is freakin' awesome!! My favorite track is "Bulletproof Heart" and "The Only Hope for Me is You"... Damn, I love MCR... Thanks to Ridhwan!





I turned the volume to the max and it kept me awake for the most of the journey as I screamed my lungs out in my head... 




Anyway, I was really nervous for the interview... Even though I rehearsed on what to say and how to react properly in front of the interviewer, I knew that once I stepped in the room, I would forget everything and go intuitively... I was right... Nervousness took over and I stuttered a bit... I thought I kinda blew it... But it turned out that I got the job!! Woohooo~

A new phase of my life had just begun... 

The next day, I went back to Terengganu because mom insisted that I follow her to Kedah for my cousin's engagement and wedding ceremony... So, I packed light and hopped on a bus again...

On this trip, I tried listening to 30 Seconds to Mars' latest album, "This is War"... I couldn't deny it, Jared Leto is awesome... His voice really blew my mind... I love the track "Vox Populi (Call to Arms)", "This is War" and of course, "Kings and Queens"... 




As soon as I arrived to my stop, I step out of the bus and raised my head up high to look at the stars... I always do that every time I got off a bus after a long journey during the night... The stars look exceptionally beautiful at the time before dawn... 

I got home at 5.30 a.m... I slept until 10.00 a.m... I had breakfast, checked my mail, slept again, packed my bags and left home at 9.00 p.m to my granny's house... Great, another 2 hours trip... My back was hurt because I sat for so long... As I was traveling with my parents, I had to listen to Malay songs... Pftt... It's not that I hate Malay songs, but the "Adam!! Stacy!! Bergabung!! Meletup!!" song really sucks...

We reached granny's house at 11.30 p.m... After a long chat with granny, we called it a night and went to sleep at 2.00 a.m... I woke up at 6.00 a.m and we started our journey to Kedah at 8.00 a.m... My back was still hurt... Awesome...

In order to get to Kedah from Terengganu, we must go through Kelantan and Perak...




In Kelantan, we stopped for gas... I wanted to buy "pau ayam" at the shop beside the gas station... Being a Terengganurian, I asked for the "pau ayam" in Terengganu dialect - "Nok pau ayang se..." which meant "Nak pau ayam satu" in proper Malay... or "Can I have one chicken "pau" please?" in English... The salesgirl didn't get me and things got pretty awkward as we stared at each other for about 30 seconds...


Kelantanese pronounce Ayang, Aye...

by the way, what is "pau" in English? 

Then, in Perak, I saw a guy masturbating at a cemetery... The picture below doesn't do him justice because his face was way more intense... It's like, he was about to... Shisshh... The unusual sighting made my jaw drop and left me speechless... I think he's a crazy guy because he got crazy hair and beard... I dunno... Who I am to judge?




Hmm... Artistic huh?

We arrived safely in Kedah at 6.20 p.m... Awesome... Nothing much happened in Kedah... I helped setting up the tents for the "kenduri" and then me, my parents and a few uncles and aunts went to Alor Setar for tour... We didn't know what's interesting there, so we went here: 




Menara Alor Setar... When I stared at it from below, it looked like it was swaying... it appeared such as the clouds behind it were moving... I was hoping to go up to the top floor but the elevator was under maintenance... Sad... There were rubbish everywhere too... Double sad...

My cousin spoke about Star Parade - a nice and big shopping mall there... We tried looking for it but ended up being in a wrong mall... I think it was Alor Setar Perbandaran Mall or Kedah Supermart or something... It was crappy but a bit better than Hang Tuah Mall in Melaka... Pftt...

After less than a day being in Kedah, I went back to Melaka again to report for duty... I left by bus at 10.00 p.m... For this trip, I wanted to listen to Linkin Park's album, "A Thousand Suns"... but after two tracks, I got bored and daydreamed instead... I thought about lots of things... but mostly I thought about my love relationship... I thought of the good times and the bad times my girl and I had gone through together... ... ... I miss her so much...



Then I fell asleep...

When I woke up, the bus already reached Melaka... When I got off at Melaka Sentral at 7.00 a.m, I thought of just taking a domestic bus home because hated those stupid expensive taxi drivers... but then I met the uncle that tried to trick me into paying RM20 for a ride back home that day... in case u forget who he is, click here... He recognized me and yelled "BOY!! FIFTEEN RINGGIT YA??!"... 

I rode with him home... 

and that's the end of my long journey...

Lets count the stars like how we used to do back then



Every time I got off a bus after a long ride from Terengganu to Melaka or the other way around, I would look up to the night sky for a moment to see the moon and millions of stars shining bright... It always reminded me of you... 

because no matter how far we are apart from each other, we would always be looking at the same moon...

Kenapa saya suka rumah saya?




One night, as I was lying on my bed, ready to fall asleep, a thought crossed my mind - "Hey, when I think about it, I never did have a room to myself... Yeah... I've always been sharing bedrooms with my brothers and roommates... Hmm... I guess that's why I'm not comfortable sleeping alone..."

Then, I thought about how my house looked like when I was a little kid...




Before my parents renovated the house, it used to be so small... 90 percent of it was wood... it had only one room, so my parents and I slept in the living room, in front of the TV... I used to love sleeping there because I got to watch TV before I went to sleep... 

All of the houses in the neighborhood looked the same because they were built with the same design...

The extension at the back of the house is the kitchen and the bathroom... The bathroom had many holes... One day, a black snake slithered in while I was bathing... Luckily I managed to jump onto the washing machine and avoided getting bitten... I called out my mom but nobody's home at that time... So I just sat on the washing machine until the snake went away which was 40 minutes later... 




The toilet was separated from the house... It was a few meters away from the kitchen... So, whenever I had to poop during the night, I would ask my dad to accompany me... The toilet had no lights, therefore, a torchlight would be really really useful... Wow... So old school...

But now, my house is a lot bigger... thanks to the grocery shop we own...

Correct me if I'm wrong

A friend of mine sent me the above message last nite...

Well, I think that this is kinda wrong...

If I sent the message to 50 of my friends, I shall be rewarded with good luck and happiness for 40 days?

I think it's wrong because only Allah Almighty can grant us luck and happiness...
not some simple messages sent via SMS... 

Even if I did send it to 50 friends, if Allah wants to test me, He will definitely test me...



Correct me if I'm wrong...

Chasing Cars...

Sometimes when I stare at passing cars, I wonder...
What would a caveman think if he saw a moving car? 


He would most probably hunt it like an animal...

Anyway, today, at driving school, I met my former form 5 classmate... I remembered her because she has sleepy eyes and big breasts... When we're in school, she's kinda a bimbo... though, she's really nice... 

After 3 years studying in UiTM Sabah, now she's turned into an intelligent girl... She told me how she struggled for 2 semesters because her English sucked... she had to type all of her assignments in English... It stressed her out, she cried every time she had assignments due... But, as a result of her hard work studying, now she's able to converse in English!! I had a proper English conversation with her for 15 minutes... Then I didnt know what else to say and things got awkward between us... 

Her progress kinda amaze me... It proves that u can improve yourself tremendously if u have determination and worked hard... 

I asked her how did she learn English... She said her roommate helped her... She's a Sabahan and English is like her first language... She forced my friend to speak in English with her EVERYDAY... After a few semesters, my friend finally acquired the language as she got use to it... 

Interesting... 

However, she said she's still struggling with Grammar because spoken English is quite different from written English...

The Warrior's Way & Due Date



The first few seconds of The Warrior's Way movie (where Dong-gung Jang threw a knife at his water reflection) was awesome! But the rest of it were crap... totally unbearable... 

This is officially the worst ninja movie ever... I thought that it would beat Ninja Assassin (acted by Rain) with its awesome CGI effects... However, this movie is just another proof that cool effects alone cannot make a movie watchable... Ninja Assassin is indeed a few times better... 

Alief told me that they should just focus on comedy... I agreed... It started as a comedy but it failed to maintain the sense of humor... Furthermore, this movie has no focus at all... I refuse to call it an action movie because the action was just a handful... I cannot call it romance either because the lovey dovey scenes between Dong-gung Jang and Kate Bosworth were terrible (the cowgirl accent made it worst)... I can't also call it a tragedy because the killings and massacre didn't touch my heart... This movie lack focus... It was all over the place!!!

This movie would be better if the fighting scenes were more elaborated... Instead of showing how Yang instantly kills an enemy with a single slash, they should let him dance for a while with awesome sword handling techniques... They should also raise the pace and cut the warrior soul searching scenes... The movie should also be gorier... Besides that, they should change the battle between ninjas and cowboy bandits scene - ninjas kill their targets by hiding in the dark and being stealth... They don't just charge forward recklessly... Only samurais do that...

I was really disappointed because I had high hopes for this movie since it was made by the producers of Lord of the Rings... and the trailers were great! I thought that it would at least be at par with the movie "300"... But I was dead wrong... Shisshhh...

I like the costumes though... the ninja outfits were wicked and intimidating... I also like how the ninjas appeared... 

(3 out of 10 stars)




The movie Due Date was funny... but it was not funny enough... It started out very slow and some jokes seemed kinda forced... The real laugh only started at the middle of the movie when Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis finally managed to avoid the slapsticks and focused on more spontaneous humorous acts... 

Robert Downey Jr sure knows how to act... His fast talking, face impressions and perfect timing to pop out jokes are great... I could say that his actings saved the movie...

The funniest scene is when they accidentally drank Zach's dead father's ashes... I cried laughing... 

There were attempts to put some heartfelt moments into the movie by bringing up the issue of Zach's dead father... those attempts almost failed because of Zach couldn't portrayed a sad expression... However, the director was clever enough to shorten the scenes and focus more on the journey... 

All in all, Due Date is a good comedy... However, it lacks "heart"... Yes, u'll have good laugh but there's not enough substance to keep u grinning even after hours of watching it...

Taxi taxi taxi stupid taxi taxi driver

Last Friday, I arrived at Melaka from Terengganu at 5.30 am... I was tired and I wanted to get home as fast as I could... So, I opted for a taxi ride... 

Taxi drivers in Melaka are rude and stupid... They tried to trick me into paying RM20 for a ride from Melaka Sentral to Kubu... If u're familiar with the Melaka Town, u would know that Melaka Sentral and Kubu is fucking near to one another... 

I've stayed in Melaka for 5 years now... and I always pay RM15 max for a taxi ride to Kubu... I would never pay a higher amount... So, I seriously thought of just walking home instead of arguing about the ridiculous high fare with the stupid driver any longer... He even yelled at me... Dammit... Just when I was about to walkaway from him, he immediately lowered the rate to RM15... 

Taxi drivers in Melaka are really stupid... They charge such high fare and therefore, they dont really have many customers... U can see them at Melaka Sentral, Dataran Pahlawan and Hang Tuah Mall, desperately looking for customers... People prefer to ride buses because they are 10 times cheaper...

Hey, Wolverine

Today, when I was looking at myself in the mirror, I thought that I looked kinda handsome... With my  beard, I looked like Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)... I felt good about myself... That means my confidence level has gotten higher... That's good... I need it if I wanted to be a good teacher...


Then I thought about all of my past crushes... I wondered how would they think of me if they saw me now... I used to be quite a nerd... Though I never combed my hair, because of my quiet personality, people often considered me as nerdy and unattractive...Well, if those girls came to me now, trying to get some, I would tell them to stay away... Coz I'm taken...

I thought about how I used to do ridiculous things just to get those girls' attention... like how I always called them via the house phone to ask about homework... that didn't work so well because I always ended up being silent and they would hang up on me... I often planned about what I wanted to say before calling... I even rehearsed the lines in my head or in front of the mirror in my bathroom... But as I picked up the phone, those words seemed to fade away... Crap...

I remembered about ten years ago how I seldom cycled to the top of a hill near my place and screamed "I love u" loudly... by doing that, I hoped  that the girl that I was having a crush on magically heard me (even though she's like thousand miles away from that spot)... How ridiculous... I'm so embarrassed now... Seriously, what was I thinking?? Shit... I feel like shooting myself now... I blame all the Malay love movies I watched...


How I wished I could turn back time and undo that... Yeah, I would undo a lot of stuff...

Friday Prayer


Last Friday, during Friday prayer, I held my breath for so long, I almost fainted... It was because the guy on my left was so smelly... He smelled like fish... While the guy on my right put on too much perfume... It made me dizzy... It was so difficult to focus on praying when I couldn't even breathe easy... 

I did some searches online and I found that in Islam, it is encouraged that we bath and put on a little bit of perfume before we pray... it is because when we pray, we are actually 'meeting' Allah... So we would want to look our best... When applying perfume, make sure that it doesn't attract too much attention and distract other fellow Muslims while praying... 

I wondered why the guy on my left was so smelly... His clothes seemed clean... Maybe it's because he was sweating a lot because he's kinda chubby... I wondered whether he wore deodorant or not... Most probably he didn't... 


Anyway, last month, while my family and I were on our way home from granny's house, we stopped at a huge mosque in Dungun for Friday prayer... After the prayer, we found that someone had stolen my younger brother's slippers... Those slippers were kinda new... My mom bought them for Hari Raya...
He was furious... He put a curse on the person who had stolen those slippers... He cursed that the thief's feet would be crushed by a huge trailer in an accident... He had to walk barefooted to the car that was parked outside the mosque area... It was hilarious... I added oil to his fire by giggling... As soon as we left the mosque, we went straight to the shoe store and mom bought him a new pair... but the new one looked rather ugly... it made my day...

I experienced the same thing once... Someone stole my slippers during Friday prayer... However, I refused to be barefooted... so I stole someone else's slippers... I didn't feel proud about it but those slippers I stole were rather comfortable... I still hope the owner didn't curse me for stealing his slippers... 


I like Kari



You wanna see a hot nerd? Then, check out Kari Byron - one of the hosts/assistants in Mythbusters... Science is so much fun when being taught by a hot teacher... Don't you agree? Besides being a host, she's also a sculptor... Check out her website - www.karibyron.com - to see her work of art... Amazingly, she's also a model (she posed for FHM once) - and a mother... 

I like her because she's always smiling - she has a cute smile... (I love girls with cute smiles... my girl has a cute smile)... and I also like her hair (I like red heads)...

I LIKE KARI BYRON

My mind just went wild...

I love McDonald's Spicy Fried Chicken...

Whenever I eat parts of chicken, I often wonder about the number of chicken got killed daily in order to prevent humans from starving... 

I Googled "How many chicken got killed daily for food across the world"... apparently, in the United States of America (USA), 23-27 million are killed daily... while 29 million more are killed in the United Kingdom (UK)... well, only those two countries bothered to count the chicken they killed because I couldn't find the number for other countries... 

27 million plus 29 million equals to 56 fuckin' million... If added with the numbers from other countries, the number can be summed up to more than 1000 million I guess... That's mass murder... No wonder people turn vegetarian... They cannot handle the guilt...

I think we should honor the chicken because they sacrifice themselves to feed us, humans... We should have Chicken Day - the day when we don't eat chicken... The chicken would be happy to celebrate that...

Sometimes I imagine...

Sometimes I imagine what would I do if one day I found a bag full of money... Maybe a robber threw it there when he was chased by cops... or maybe a senile rich old man put it down on the road to get his car keys from his pocket and then forgot to take the bag and drove off... Well, life is full of possibilities... so, if that really happened, what would I do?


Firstly, I would go buy a new bag... The owner of the bag could be looking for it... So, I wouldn't want him to see me carrying it... He would most probably kill me or ask for the bag back... So, I would get myself a new bag pack and go to the toilet and transfer the money into the new bag... I would just leave the old bag in the toilet or dump it in the trash can...


Then, I would go to the nearest hotel and check myself in... In the hotel room, all by myself, I would check the money to make sure that there's no tracer being planted in between the bills... I read somewhere that banks usually put tracers on the bills to trace missing money... If I found tracers, I would immediately take them out and go out of the room and check the hotel surroundings for signs of cops... If I saw cops, I would rush out of the hotel and stick the tracers on moving cars so that the cops would be chasing the wrong targets... After the coast is clear, I would go back to my room and count the money!!
I figured that banks can detect the stolen money's serial number... Therefore, I wouldn't be able to bank in the money into my bank account... But I wouldn't want to carry the money around or hide it somewhere in my room... So, I would spend the money bit by bit... Instead of banking in the money that I found into my account, I would bank in the CHANGE from the money I spent... I would only spent the money on little stuff...


After I'd banked in all of the money (it would take forever) , I would have nothing else to worry about! I would be filthy rich!! Because I banked in the money bit by bit, if someone asked me how I got rich, I would say that I saved the money little by little... Like the Malay proverb goes - "Sikit-sikit, lama-lama jadi bukit..." HAHAHA!! I would buy myself houses around university campuses and rent them to students... Therefore, I would get money transfered into my account every month! I would buy all the gadgets that I always wanted like iPhones, iPads, laptops, tablet PCs, etc... I would buy a big motorbike and a nice car!! Wuihhhh~

However, suddenly I thought about my conscience... Yeah, I kinda do have a big conscience... If I got rich that way, I would be forever haunted by guilt... I wouldn't be happy... I guess that's why people say - money cant buy you happiness...



But then, I thought... FUCK THE CONSCIENCE!! I want my iPad so that I could draw those pictures above better... It's hard to use Microsoft Paint and draw smooth lines using the touch pad or mouse... I wanna draw on a fucking touch screen!!

When I'm gone...


I found this online... and it touched my heart... 
I'm not sure whether it's true or not... 
But still I wanna share it here...




          "Nama aku Amir... Aku ada seorang kekasih... Seorang??? huhu... Kekasih aku itu memang sangat cantik!! Sebab dia cantik, aku dan kawan-kawan aku berebut... Nasib aku baik la, aku dapat juga dia... memandangkan aku ni pun kategori orang yang handsome... hahaha... OOPS! Lupa! Nama kekasih aku ni Nadia.. Kami tak sama kampung tapi satu sekolah... Satu hari ni, aku dapat tawaran sambung belajar di satu IPTA ni... aku pun dapat... Alhamdulillah... Keputusan SPM kami cemerlang... aku pun tak sangka boleh dapat 7A... Hahaha... Tapi memang gila la... Walaupun jurusan yang ditawarkan sama, tapi aku dicampak ke utara dan dia pula ke Selatan... Dia ni kuat cemburu... tu jangan cakap laa... hidup aku dia yang aturkan... selama aku satu sekolah dulu, jangan harap la aku nak keluar dengan kawan-kawan perempuan aku... Jangankan nak keluar sama, pandang pun tak boleh... Kadang-kadang aku rimas jugak dengan dia... Bila aku bising, dia marah-marah dan merajuk... Benci betul aku... Aku tahu dia sayangggg sangat-sangat kat aku... Aku tahu dia memang tak layan mana-mana lelaki yang cuba pikat dia... Kadang-kadang aku marah juga kalau ada lelaki yang hantar-hantar mesej kepada dia walaupun dia tak balas...

          Tapi sebenarnya aku ada sorokkan sesuatu daripada dia... Disebabkan kami dah terpisah jauh, aku mula la nak menggatal di utara ni... Jahatkan? Aku rasa bebas!!! Aku pun rasa dia juga rasa begitu... Ya lah, dia kan cantik... Mesti la ramai jantan cuba pikat dia... Disebabkan aku nak menutup perasaan prasangka yang buruk-buruk tu, aku mula la berkawan dengan ramai perempuan kat sini... Setiap kali orang tanya status aku, mesti aku jawab aku "single"... Aku selalu keluar dengan kawan-kawan perempuan aku di sini... Memang lagak macam orang "single"... Aku selalu teringatkan dia setiap kali aku berfoya-foya... Bila waktu malam, sebelum tidur, mesti dia yang "call" aku... Aku? Kadang-kadang je... Tapi aku sayang sangat pada dia... Aku cakap kat dia, kawan-kawan aku kat sini semuanya jantan... Dia cakap dia pun ada kawan perempuan sahaja... Sebelum kami tamatkan perbualan, mesti dia akan bercerita kenangan kami bersama... Dia selalu cakap, "kalau saya dah tiada, baru awak boleh gatal dengan perempuan lain"... Kadang-kadang aku marah dia sebab dia cakap benda yang bukan-bukan walaupun hakikatnya aku memang dah menggatal dah pun... Kadang-kadang aku selalu juga cetuskan pergaduhan dengan dia... banyak kali dia menangis semasa bergaduh dengan aku... Pernah tu aku tertengking dia... Kasihan dia.........


"SAYA SAYANG AWAK! SAYA NAK AWAK!"

          Tiba-tiba aku terkejut dari lamunan... Rupa-rupanya kawan perempuan aku, Tiqah... Aku pun dengan bodohnya menerima Tiqah sebagai kekasih kedua... Semasa duit PTPTN keluar, aku beli satu lagi "handphone"... Satu "handphone" khas untuk SMS Nadia, satu lagi untuk Tiqah... Dalam tempoh aku belajar di sini, macam-macam penipuan aku buat... Aku tipu dua-dua perempuan tu... Tapi hati aku tetap sayangkan Nadia... Mungkin sebab jauh, perasaan tu kadang-kadang bercampur... Tiqah pun macam Nadia... Sejak aku bersama dengan dia, aku dah tak keluar dengan kawan-kawan perempuan lain... semuanya kembali seperti semasa aku dengan Nadia dulu... Aku berasa bersalah sangat... Tapi dalam masa yang sama, aku cuma nak hilangkan perasaan bosan sunyi di sini... "Kalau la Nadia tahu..." Kadang-kadang aku terfikir nak berterus-terang... Tapi aku tak berani... Kalau dulu aku tidur pukul 1.30, sekarang ni pukul 3.30... kadang-kadang pukul 4... sebab nak bergayut dengan dua-dua... Semua orang tak tahu siapa aku sebenarnya... termasuk kawan karib aku sendiri... Setiap kali aku balik kampung, Nadia tak balik... Universiti tak sama dengan sekolah... Cuti lain-lain... Cuma ada sekali tu kami dapat cuti sama-sama... Cuti Hari Raya... Semasa aku jumpa Nadia, aku sorokkan "handphone" satu lagi tu di rumah... Nadia semakin cantik! Berseri-seri... Mana-mana lelaki tengok mesti cair la... Nadia cakap cinta dia hanya untuk aku... Selama dia berpisah dengan aku, dia semakin rindu, semakin sayang dan cintakan aku... Untuk hilangkan perasaan itu, dia habiskan masa dengan belajar... Kadang-kadang dia cakap, dia belajar sampai lewat malam... Dia gembira sebab hati aku masih tak berubah untuk dia seorang... ERR!!! Aku berasa bersalah sangat-sangat... "Kalau saya dah tiada, baru awak boleh gatal dengan perempuan lain tau!" cakapnya sambil tergelak-gelak... Ayat tu dah berjuta kali dia sebut... Aku tengok muka dia yang lembut tu... Dia bersuara, kalau habis belajar, dia nak aku ikat dia sebagai tunang... Selepas itu, dia nak kami kerja, kumpul duit banyak-banyak dan kahwin dan kemudiannya sambung belajar lagi... Beria-ia dia menceritakan impian dia kepada aku...

          Permainan aku berlarutan sehingga semester ke 4... Pada satu hari ni aku pergi makan dengan Tiqah macam biasa... Heboh satu kampus aku jadi ketua projek untuk satu pertandingan perbahasan antara IPTA... Kebetulan hari ni ulangtahun ke 3 aku dengan Nadia... Macam biasa aku pergi makan dengan Tiqah di kafeteria... Semasa Tiqah tengah ambil lauk, aku tergerak hati nak periksa "handphone" dia... Terhenti jantung aku, berlambak-lambak mesej seorang jantan yang bersayang-sayang di dalam "inbox" dia... Aku pun bengang... Sebaik sahaja Tiqah duduk, aku soal siasat dia sampai dia menangis... Sebelum ni tak terniat pula aku nak periksa... Tiqah cakap dia tetap sayangkn aku... Aku pun mula terfikirkan Nadia... Tiba-tiba ada sekumpulan perempuan datang ke meja kami... Tak lama selepas itu, aku nampk Nadia... Aku menelan air liur... Rupa-rupanya, Nadia juga mengambil bahagian dalam pertandingan tu... Bila Tiqah nampak ramai-ramai perempuan tu datang dekat dengan aku, pelik la dia... Dan dengan kuasa Allah, semua terbongkar pada saat tu... Dan Tiqah sendiri mengaku yg dialah kekasih aku pada Nadia... Aku tengok Nadia menangis... Dia tak bercakap sepatah perkataan pun... Cuma dia berikan aku hadiah ulangtahun kami sebelum dia tinggalkan aku... Aku terus putuskan hubungan aku dengan Tiqah...

           Semasa aku balik hostel, puas aku cuba hubungi Nadia... Aku hantar SMS berlambak-lambak kepada dia... dia tak balas satu pun... Aku sedar, dia dah benci aku... Rupanya Nadia masih menerima aku... Aku gembira sangat-sangat... Aku berjanji tak nak kecewakan dia lagi... 2 minggu kejadian itu berlalu... Orang-orang sekeliling aku mula menjauhkan diri daripada aku... Lebih-lebih lagi kawan-kawan perempuan aku la... Aku dah tak kisah dah... Aku dah berubah... Aku cuma nak dapatkan keputusan yang cemerlang sampai semester akhir nanti... Aku nak dapatkan kerja baik-baik... Apa-apa pun aku nak ikat Nadia dulu... Kadang-kadang aku berasa malu sangat kat Nadia... Lebih-lebih lagi bila teringatkan mak ayah dia... Nasib baik dia tak pergi mengadu kat mak dan ayah dia... hehe...

         Dalam tengah di awang-awangan berangan sambil membelek-belek kemeja baru hadiah ulangtahun daripadanya masa hari kejadian tu, tiba-tiba aku menerima satu SMS daripada kawan Nadia... "Nadia kemalangan!!!" Ermm... Hati aku tiba-tiba jadi tak sedap... SMS kedua daripada kawan dia datang lagi... Terasa panas muka aku bila baca SMS itu... "Nadia dah tiada... Dia dilanggar kereta semasa melintas jalan..." Macam orang gila selepas aku baca SMS itu... Aku ambil keputusan untuk balik sekejap ke kampung walaupun terpaksa ponteng kelas... Aku rasa kosong... Kosong sangat... Teringat gelak tawa dia, teringat suara dia, muka dia yang cantik tu... Aku menangis dalam bas... Aku tak peduli dengan orang-orang yang memandang aku... Kali ni aku betul-betul menyalahkan diri aku... Semua kenangan aku bersama Nadia bermain di dalam kepala... Aku tak mampu menahan perasaan sedih ni... Berulang kali aku baca SMS terakhir Nadia malam tadi... "Awak, saya nak tido... Macam biasa, saya sayangkan awak untuk selamanya... walaupun awak dah lukakan hati saya, saya maafkan... Tapi ingat! Kalau saya tiada baru awak boleh gatal dengan perempuan lain! Hehe... Nak marah la tu... Saya sayang awak! Sweet dreams..."

         Ya Allah! Kuatkanlah hatiku ni... Semasa aku sampai, jenazahnya belum tiba lagi... Ye... Aku pun terus mencoretkan kisah ini... Semoga menjadi pengajaran kepada kamu semua... Air mata aku berguguran sepanjang mencoretkan kisah ni... Tapi aku tahu, Nadia takkan kembali lagi... Tiada lagi SMS Nadia, panggilan Nadia... Tiada lagi ungkapan "kalau saya tiada" tu... Kawan-kawan... Aku minta sedekahkanlah Al-Fatihah kepadanya... Mungkin ada yang memperlekehkan kisah aku ni... Tapi bagi aku, inilah kisah yang paling bermakna... Untuk selamanya aku menyayangimu, Nurul Nadia bt Zainarruddin... Mungkin sekejap lagi jenazahnya tiba... Aku nak bersiap-siap untuk beri penghormatan terakhir buat dia yang aku sayangi... Sememangnya cinta dia untuk aku sehingga akhir nafas... Aku hanya mampu merelakan pemergiannya... Tabahkan hatiku Ya Allah...

Al Fatihah..."

What are the odds...

On my bus ride back to Terengganu from Melaka, I met Mr. Kamalul... He sat next to me... He has curly hair... It's really curly, it made me think of instant noodles... and it made me hungry... Anyway, we did have a little chat...




It's interesting because I'm comfortable staying in Melaka and I thought of living there too... We're like the opposite of each other... What are the odds huh? He's doing his Masters... He said Terengganu is a nice place... So peaceful and calm... He said he would love to spend the rest of his life there, living by the beach...

He's kinda talkative... Yeah, he's the opposite of me...


Interesting...

How to get hundreds of followers

While blogwalking a while ago, I found that there are so many crappy blogs out there with hundreds or billions of followers... I don't get why people would want to follow them because they're not that interesting to read and some are unreadable for the templates are all messed up and the fonts that they use are really small... There are also many blogs that autoplay music... It's extremely annoying... Based on my observation, there are a couple of ways to get people to follow your blog...

The first one is by asking them to follow your blog by leaving comments on their entries... I stumbled upon comments like - 

"Hey, nice post! By the way, I've followed your blog... can you follow mine?" 

and 

"Hi, just blogwalking here... be generous and follow my blog ya!" 

and

"Follow my blog..."

I dont know about u guys, but I think it's rather impolite to leave comments like such... It's insincere... If I got those kind of comments, I would delete them... I want people to follow my blog because they like the stuff that I write or they think that my blog is interesting... and not because I ask them to... 

Another way to get followers is by holding contests... 
 For example, 

The Christmas Hat Contest!!!
Send me the best picture of you wearing a Christmas hat and win great prizes!! 
In order to enter this contest, u must first FOLLOW my blog... yada yada yada

This is a smart and sleek way to get followers... 
Well, every contest has its own rules and regulation... 
So, I think it's not wrong or impolite to do this... 

Those are based on my observation... 

Below are some useful tips on how to get people to follow your blog that I got from the Internet...

Your blog must have good readable content,
easy accessibility,
a readable template...

or

U can use business cards with your info and give them to people...
Marketing in other forums and social networks. (Facebook - Networked Blogs, etc.) also works...
 Post your link in as many places as you can: social networking sites, blog directories, search engines, forums, etc. Ping your blog to make sure directories have updated information.

Remember to work on your blog either by writing or marketing daily...

Most importantly, write about what people would be interested in reading...

Father

About a week ago, while waiting for my bus to Terengganu at Melaka Sentral, I couldn't help but to overhear a phone conversation between an old man who was standing beside me and his son...




"Hello, Mat... Bapak dah kat Melaka Sentral ni... Tengah tunggu bas... Ya... Dalam pukul 2 sampai la kot... ... Apa?? Tak boleh datang ambil? Kerja? Ala... Ambil la bapak sekejap... Bapak bukannya tahu selok belok KL tu... ... Tinggal la kerja tu sekejap... Lagipun, kan bapak dah bagi tau awal-awal bapak pergi sana hari ni... Teksi?? Hmm... Baik la... Kau SMS alamat kau ya... Bye..."



It looked like his son wouldn't be able to pick him up at the bus station because he had some work to do... I felt pity for the old man... because he seemed very old as his hair and beard were all gray... Then, I felt angry at the son... 

If I was him, I would create an excuse to skip work and go fetch my father by car... KL and Melaka is like only 2 hours drive...

Then I thought of my own father and the fact that he's getting older and he might be leaving this world soon... It made me feel sad...

Unstoppable

Yesterday, Alief, Kimi and I went to watch the movie Unstoppable... At first, "Hmm... A movie about a runaway train... Sounds like another typical disaster movie for me...", I thought... Though it receives many good reviews, I was rather reluctant to see it... However, out of boredom, I went anyway...

The movie was really good!!



This movie is not about extraordinary people or superheroes saving the world... It's about common and ordinary people like us doing what they thought was right in dealing with real problems that can possibly happen anytime in real world (It's based on a real story too... Totally realistic...) It shows us how normal people can achieve great things if armed with a set of skills, bravery and determination... 

The strongest point of the movie lies in its casts... Owh boy, Denzel Washington sure knows how to act and rock a movie... He managed to convince the audience that he's really an expert in trains... This is his second movie about trains - the first was The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009)... Chris Pine also delivered an astounding act in portraying a troubled yet determined rookie... Rosario Dawson added more ingredient to make the movie better with her act as a sharp and dedicated railway manager... 

For your information, Tony Scott, the director for this movie also directed The Taking of Pelham 123... I guess he really likes trains... He did great in making this movie exciting... At the beginning, he showed the audience the family conflicts that the two main characters, Will Colson (Pine) and Frank Barnes (Washington), had but clever enough to avoid elaborating them by taking the audience straight to the source of the train problem and thus, keeping the audience interested... I should say that the pacing of the movie was like the movement of a train - slow at the beginning but then it got faster and faster by the minute... The action scenes were tense especially at the part where Will Colson got his leg injured... The movie was so full with suspense, it excited me... 

I love the way Tony Scott illustrated how powerful the runaway train was by letting it smashed into a truck and some cargo containers... it added the suspense as it let the audience know the terrible consequences if it collided with another train or accidentally derailed into a populated area... He was successful in making the audience believe that the train was truly unstoppable...  

Love it...

Unfairness in life...



I felt like kicking my brother in the gut because he got to do what I wanted to do but couldn't - draw for homework... He's taking this computer graphic design shit or something at TATI College University... 

I was rather pissed off because it was my dream to take that course as I love drawing and illustrating... mom wouldn't let me because she preferred me being a teacher or taking Science stream... I was more pissed off because he's slacking off... He's doing it half-heartedly... I looked at some of his work and I thought, "Hey, I can do better..."

Life can be so unfair...




Can I do Graphic Design for my Masters??

Megamind & The Social Network

I went to watch MegaMind with Alief a couple of weeks ago... Before we entered the cinema, my cupcake told me that her brother told her that the movie was insanely funny... So I was rather excited to see it...


Well, after watching, I thought the movie was just okey... So, I was quite disappointed... It wasnt as mind blowing as being described by my girlfriend's brother... 

I'm not saying that MegaMind sucks - it's actually a good animation because it managed to win some laughs as most scenes were filled with gags and jokes... I would agree to the fact that it's at par with the Shrek series... 

But the thing is, I'm not a fan of the Shrek series...

I also felt that Will Ferrell was not being himself in the movie because I didn't see his typical nonsensical rambling and the movie was rather intelligent... I was like, "is that really the voice of Will Ferrell??"... However, Brad Pitt and Tina Fey lived up to expectations as they managed to do the voices really well... Jonah Hill was also kinda good...

The only animation that managed to impress me so far is How to Train Your Dragon... Like what Adi said - that animation is unbeatable...

It made me think that it's so damn hard to find a movie that can really satisfy me... Sigh...



Then, Ridhwan gave me a copy of The Social Network... He downloaded it... He said that it was freakin good... I told myself that I shouldnt rely on people's comments because different people have different taste in movies... 

Actually, I never did want to watch The Social Network... Why would I want to watch a movie about a rich geek?? I expected it to be boring... However, out of boredom, I watched it anyway...



Ridhwan was totally right... The Social Network is AWESOME!!

I love the movie because it played with my emotions... The best scene is when Eduardo (Mark Zuckerberg's best friend) felt betrayed and smashed Mark's Macbook into pieces... If I was Eduardo, I would totally do the same thing...

The movie's fast pace also contributes to its success... While watching, before I got the chance to get bored, I was bombarded with scenes that required me to focus in order to grasp what is actually happening... I really couldn't get my attention off the movie because if I missed even a single word that the characters were saying, I would have to rewind and hear that particular word again in order to get a tight grip of what they were talking about...

It's fuckin great! and it satisfied me...
