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...

Erkk!!

One fine day, when I was browsing through other people's status updates on Facebook because I got nothing else better to do, I received a message from a stranger...

Takers Buried RED

Based on its trailers, I expected that the movie RED would be fast-paced and action packed... Well, what more could you expect from the bad-ass Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman? However, RED failed to live up to my expectations and because of that, I was a bit disappointed... The movie was rather slow paced - it took so long  for Frank Moses (Willis) to get everyone (Freeman, Malkovich, Mirren) together... The action scenes could be made better and longer if the process of gathering all members of the team could be cut shorter...

However, the movie was not a failure... The strong point of the movie lies in its cast members... It’s amazing that after 25 years, Bruce Willis could still win an audience with just a flash of his trademark mischievous grin... My girlfriend went crazy every time she saw that grin in the movie... He's cocky, macho and bad-ass - enough traits to convince a girl to go for older men... Freeman, Malkovich, Cox and Mirren also did a great job - they all delivered terrific performances... Malkovich was the most colourful one - he entertained the audience with his craziness and yet be humble enough to not steal Willis' spotlight... 
 
The action scenes were quite good - my favorite scene was when Willis got off a spinning, out of control police car and straight away shot the CIA agent who was chasing him - you can see that in the trailers... However, as I mentioned before, the action could be made more exhilarating... 
The humor was not bad... Mary Louise Parker managed to nail the jokes and kill with her comic facial expressions... and I just cant deny that it was fun to see Cox (the Russian) and Mirren got together as old time lovers... 

All in all, RED was not bad... With a better director and improved plot, RED could have been made better...





When I was told that the movie "Buried" was about a person being buried underground in a coffin, I wondered whether it could get me interested or not... Well, the movie did not just get me interested, it also played with my emotions and made my heart race with its tension and suspense... 

You can only enjoy this movie if you're able to put yourself in Paul Conroy's (Ryan Reynolds) shoes... What would you do if you're in the same situation as Conroy? How would you feel? Just imagine yourself being  helplessly trapped in a coffin without any hope of escaping - does it make you loose your mind? 

Credits to Ryan Reynolds for being able to portray the emotions of Paul Conroy so effectively... The great camera work should also be praised... Bravo~




Looking at the trailers, Takers seemed like a movie of heist - similar to Italian Job and Ocean Eleven... Well, actually, it's not completely a heist movie because the action part was more in focused... The action scenes were quite good and it took a longer length than the money stealing part... The Hotel Roosevelt shooting scene was the coolest - John Woo style baby!
 
The ladies would love the line of cast - Paul Walker, Chris Brown, Matt Dillon and a few more - it made my girl went gaga... Bad guys with great looks (they dress nice too) and cool rides - what more can a girl ask for? The most handsome of all in my opinion was Hayden Christensen
 
Chris Brown did surprisingly good especially during the chase scene - his parkour skills were impressive... and he portrayed the his role well - the wild teenage troublemaker... On the other hand, T.I Harris was awful - he ruined the scene when Paul Walker acted dangerously by stealing the armored truck... Shisshhh... he should just stick to singing...
 
Overall, Takers was surprisingly quite entertaining~ 



Next anticipated movie
