Reality Show: Bosan tahap gaban!

Monday, August 29, 2005

The reality shows on TV is a total turn-off nowadays. Just look at our copycat version of For Love Or Money (or the bachelor):

·Mencari Cinta.
Ape la bodoh sangat. I’m so embarrassed that the girl the guys are after is a PR student. Regardless of her PJJ status, I still think that the show is a totally bangang portrayal of our society. And how pathetic are the guys? Why did they enlist themselves in this kind of degrading show? They are all career guys, and although none of them have washboard stomachs or model looks, they are not bad looking. They can speak, some can even sing, and they have their own charm. I’m sure they can get girlfriends if they want to. Perhaps they were duped into believing that the show was going to be exactly like FLOM, ka-ching and all. Tapi? Heh, tak hingin!


Malaysian Idol is proving to be a real bore.
  1. I don’t think anybody that’s really2 outstanding were picked this year. And I mean vocally. Trish was good, Atilia was good, Azam was good, and some that only made it to the workshops could really shine if given the chance, but they were voted out. Xerra? It was because she had short cute red hair. Nita can sing, but she’s a typical lounge singer. Ash boleh tahan la, but he has a long way to go. Daniel – let’s not even go there. Yang boleh harap pun Faizul, Adam and Farah la. Faizull’s in there coz he brings the Malay rock-kapak flavour, Farah because she used to do the Salem thing, and as for Adam, he represents all the mat lembuts out there. If I were to follow the show, I’d want these three to go to the finals. Sape menang? I want Faizull to. Since those left are all average mats and minahs, why not Faizull? At least he will not end up as another r&b/hiphop wannabe in the scene. Kembalikan kegemilangan rock kapak. I can already see duets between Faizull and our local rock group legends.



  2. Roslan really wants to take over Paul’s job. He was not as sarcastic and irritating then as he is now. Maybe back then he was afraid to lash out and be booed at. Or maybe he really thinks that being the show’s biatch is what he is destined to do. Kak Gee seems to have lost her musical abilities, so I guess she’s the perfect Paula. Paul? Oh, the man is just being himself. (No, I don’t have a crush on Paul.)



  3. The only thing that I like about MI is the wonderful ads. But then again, all 8tv ads are cool. So no points for MI there. I know some people who works for MI, and I know they work really hard for the show to be a success, but MI2 just can’t compete with AF. MI1 came in with a bang, and everybody expected the second season to repeat its success. Tapi MI2 tenggelam dengan tsuMawi…


  4. I guess Jac set the bar too high. Period.


Fear Factor Malaysia

  1. I saw the preliminary round episode on NTV7 during the weekend, and I must say that putting you hands in a box with grasshoppers in it is not gross. 'It’s the preliminary round, belum yang real lagi!' You say. Then don’t waste our time watching silly girls squirm and scream at some bugs. I prefer a world free of creepy crawlies too, but if you can’t even stand some hoppers, what makes you think you could eat rotten fish? Or immerse yourself in a tank full of stinkin’ cockroaches?


  2. Syed, I know you were my junior, and you were once with my classmate, but please please stop speaking in English if all you’re going to do is jumble up words! I’m far from perfect, and sometimes I think that I should also shut up, but I don’t go on national TV trying to sound intelligent. I mean, “We have judge to judge you.” “How was that feels?” Ayo… We all know that the reason you’re paired with an English speaking compare is because they want her to do all the English talking, and for you to do the Bahasa part. You’re cute, you’re funny, and you are intelligent, but none of those qualities comes out in the show. Stick to Bahasa, and girls will start to swoon.

The only Malaysian reality show that I watch now is Explorace. This one deserves a standing ovation! Seriously, if you westerners think that the Amazing Race is challenging, you should watch our version. I swear to you, I’d be dead if I were to try all those crazy challenges. If I’m not mistaken, they are now opening entries for the third season. I can’t wait for the show to air! Mungkin pasal aku semput, so thrills macam tu cuma boleh dapat dalam TV aje la, kot.

For those interested, the timeline is 13th September 2005. Masuk la, untung2 boleh menang. I think Ieja and Mai would make a good team. Or maybe Azyim and Kak Ha. Oii, bestnye kalau diorang masuk…



As for foreign reality shows, I only watch Rockstar:INXS. Why? That show is da bomb! Abundant talent, it’s a shame they have to eliminate a person every week. I love JD and MiG, and I hope one of them wins. They are just the right guys for INXS. The others are equally talented, especially Ty, Brandon, Deanna, Suzie and Marty. The ladies looks and sounds gorgeous, and the guys are so mesmerizing that I’ve never missed a single episode.

Bilalah Malaysia nak ada orang-orang berbakat macam ni...

Whats up with UP?

Thursday, August 25, 2005

Whats UP with UP?

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is "UP."

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?


We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.


At other times the little word has real special meaning.People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, andthink UP excuses.To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.


And this UP is confusing:A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!


To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of thepage and can add UP to about thirty definitions.


If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP.


When it rains, it wets UP the earth. When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP,for now my time is UP, so....Time to shut UP....!


Oh... one more thing:What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?UP


cool, eh?

Songs of 1982

I got this from Azmi's Dua Sen blog. Thought I'd give it a try. Directions were quoted from Azmi.


The Directions:
[1] Go to musicoutfitters and put your birth year into the search field [there's a "Search Our Site" tag at the top right hand corner of the screen].
[2] The first link is likely the top 100 songs of that year. Cut and paste that list here (in your blog).
[3] Bold the ones you actually like. Understand that the word "like" in this case means, at the very least, that you wouldn't immediately change the radio station.
[4] Pick a favorite and italic it.

19 out of 100. Boleh tahan la...

You know you are a Malaysian when...

Wednesday, August 24, 2005

In the spirit of Merdeka, I decided to post this really interesting tags. Some of them I think are 'right on!', some I am ashamed of, some made me think.


Perhaps its our time to start reflecting on our people, our bahaviours, and our contribution to society. I'd love to be remembered as the Malaysian who made her country proud then the one who swears the most while cought in a traffic jam.
But I'm sure proud of our sambal petai and durian. Don't eat them? You're missing heaven!



You know you are a Malaysian when...

You complain about the quality of the pirated DVD you just purchased. "What, RM10 for DVD5?! Aiyah, boss ... sound no good, cheaperlah ..."

You're willing to consume sambal petai and durian and gladly suffer the bloating and wind-breaking incidents.

You see waiter/ss exceedingly polite to the Mat Sallehs but slag their own kind. "Hello, sir. Why don't you sit here, it?s got the best view of the city skyline." But, "Aunty-ah, your table is over there next to the kitchen."

You order Maggi goreng and fried chicken, complain about how oily the food is, and then proceed to finish it anyway.

You love to talk about food. You're already thinking about what to have for dinner while eating lunch. "I'm stuffed. What shall we have for dinner?"

You dive into a communal-style meal the moment the dish lands on the table only to hesitate at the last morsel of food on the serving dish. There are two possible explanations for this: the first is the pai seh (embarrassed) factor, while the other is the myth that the person who eats the last piece will be a spinster.

You hit the accelerator the moment the first drop of rain hits your windshield. "Alamak, it's going to rain. Sure traffic jam one. I'd better drive faster."

You seize the opportunity to make a U-turn anywhere ... especially where there is a sign telling you not to. Well, so long as the cops aren't in sight.

You feel a burning desire to send text messages and even have the gall to give your friend a blow-by-blow account of the movie to your friend on the handphone ? during the screening of the movie. "Okay, now that girl Lizzie is impersonating an Italian singer; she so doesn't look Italian ..."

You forsake your loved ones for the all-important four letter-word: S-A-L-E. "Sorry, mum, I can't take you to Aunt Mary?s because I have to go to MidValley before the crowd."

You're also more than happy to be part of the insane traffic jam that forms around malls during weekends and sale periods.

Reality shows Akademi Fantasia and Malaysian Idol dictate your social life. "What, no TV at the mamak? Count me out ? I'm staying home. Rinie needs my support."

You pepper every sentence with lah. "No-lah, I can't see you today-lah. I have to study-lah. You know-lah, the prison warden aka mak is watching me like a hawk"

You fail to function normally without your daily dose of teh tarik and nasi lemak.

You have owned at least one Proton in your lifetime. Cheap, cheap. That is until you start to make enough dough to buy that Honda you've been salivating over.

You slow down at an accident site to take down the car number plate, but won't step out of your car to help ? the victim could be a robber!

You'd rather park your car along the main road outside the mall, where there's a yellow line, rather than pay RM1 to park inside where there are adequate bays.

You plead, bat your eyelids and relate a sob story to the officer at the town council office to let you off the hook (or reduce the amount considerably) for the fine you incurred when you parked your car on the double line.

You make an appointment for 10am and conveniently show up a half hour late ? Malaysian time, what ...

You pop open the wet tissue packet at the Chinese restaurant by squeezing the trapped air to the top of the packet before proceeding to smash your fist into it. The louder the pop the better.

You greet your friend / neighbor / acquaintance on the street with "How are things?" or "Have you eaten?" or better yet, by stating the obvious: "Went to market ah?"

Ramlee burger is the "piece de resistance" of your growing-up-years cuisine.

You catch all major televised events at the mamak. You have roughly six meals a day (breakfast, mid-morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper). Then there's the snacking ? keropok ikan, pisang goreng, muruku, jam tarts and the like.

You get the whole family dressed to the nines, jump into the car and head for the minister's open house and ask for styrofoam boxes and plastic bags to tar pau food.

Your accent and language style vary according to the race of the person you are conversing with.

You've got a friendly disposition. Smiles are abundant and your "Apa khabar?" is warm and sincere.

You exclaim loudly how expensive everything is, even though the items may in fact be going for a steal. "Wah! So expensive, ah? Hak sei ngor (Scare me to death)!"
You dig deep into your pockets to contribute to the latest appeal for donations in the newspapers.

You never travel abroad without a bottle of chilli sauce, or sachets which you can sneak into restaurants.


You're proud to be Malaysian!!


Damn right I am!

Mimpi M.Nasir

I was just browsing through my archive at mindsay and a particular post made me smile. It was sometime in September last year, and I had thise really weird+chomel+awesome dream, and M.Nasir was my friend. Friends would know the ridiculous infactuation+crush that I have with the sifu. Here's an excerpt of the entry:


"...Aku tak tau la ape akan jadi kalau aku jumpe M.Nasir live satu hari nanti. Mati kejung kat situ jugak kot... aku tadek la pasang angan apape, tapi kalau la aku dapat borak seni ngan m.nasir..lepak2 minum kopi sambil dengar je dia bercerita pun takpe... eventhough aku kene shadap. I'll be content with just listening to him, or better still sing in front of me..hehehe... maklum ah, asal dia buat konset aku bz ah ape ah...

Ingat lagi mase canggung mendonan nye konset aku kecik lagi, skolah rendah kot, or awal skolah mnengah. Tak hingin nye mak aku nak bagi aku pegi konset (bawah umur lagik kan?). Maksu aku la orang yang paling paham tentang minat aku kat M.Nasir (walaupun dia gelakkn aku takdpt tengok konset). Dia pun suke MNasir gak zaman mude2 dulu. skang ni aku rase kalau dia buat tebiat suke-suki kat mnasir mau kena dengan suami dia...

walau ape pun, i still feel like this is not real. somewhere somehow there's this realm that must have connected me to mnasir. no, nothing like the matrix la, tu canggih sangat (tho it is possible, for all you know we are just programs) tapi another level of consciousness didalam subconscious minds kita yang sebenarnye interlink semua being. Macamana? Mungkin faith kita kepada Allah. Mungkin kepercayaan kita kepada karma. Mungkin melalui suatu ketika dalam kehidupan yang lepas bagi sesetengah. Entahla, aku pun tak dapat nak definekan... Terpulang pada kepercayaan seseorang tu la, i guess...

Spatutnye by now aku dah bad mood dah, macam2 yang aku buat hari ni tak kena aje... tapi well, whatever!
Ingat kat abg nasir senyum lebar balik...
hehehe... "



Ye, dan aku masih ingat lagi mimpi nih!Hehehe...

I remembered that Jila, a friend I knew while studying in UiTM once offered MNasir's phone number to me. Jila and Marlia Musa(MNasir's wife) are good friends.


"You minat M.Nasir kan? I have his phone no. Nak?"

Merepek betul Jila tu. Nak amik no dia buat ape? Call MNasir? And say what?


"Hello, Abang MNasir, saya minat giillaaaa kat Abang!!"

atau

"Hi. I'm a big fan of your work. I think youre blablabla..."

Dan selepas puji-pujian itu ape lagi? Ape saje tujuan aku? Ape natijahnye? If I do that, kena maki ngan sifu la jawabnya.

"Ape kejadahnya !#%^*()()*#$$@#$!"

Jadi aku pun tak ambik no tu. Balik aku cite kat Eze. Dan ucapan dia ialah:

"Bodo...kalau ko ade no dia, simpan dalam phone book, bole la rasa mcm dia dekat je dengan ko..."

Boleh???!

Ayah pin

Tuesday, August 23, 2005

Okay, I know this is a bit late(and perhaps already basi), but I found something that wasn't on the local newspapers(or perhaps I missed this). I knew that he was practicing the sky kingdom teachings, and that he's no longer a Muslim, but I didn't know this...

Taken from newpaper:

THE supreme head of this group, Ayah Pin, believes he is God incarnate.

"I'm omnipresent and omnipotent. I was once Jesus, and have been reincarnated since the beginning of time into the vessel of a human body.
'This is my last human incarnation, so when this body dies, it'll be the end of the earthly world, and time for my government in the sky..."


"You'll understand in time. There are many different levels of understanding. There's no rush," he said.

"....don't get me wrong, all religions are good because they help a person find the truth,' he said.
'But it's easier to not have one particular religion because the different structures and practices may impede your search.'

When asked whether he thought he was human, the answer was a firm no.
But was he subject to human failings, like anger? Or lust?
"Put it this way, even if I do wrong, I'm above it all. So it becomes right anyway," he said after much prodding.

The religious leader, who doesn't work, couldn't explain why he seemed to have an endless supply of money either.
'I don't know where it comes from. Sometimes if I tap my pockets, I suddenly have money. Anyway, my followers handle the money, not me,' he said.

John Legend is here!

I mean on my blog (sorry fans!) 
You'll be listening to Ordinary people throughout your stay here, so enjoy.

Being the buta HTML+coding+blablabla person that I am, I still can't figure out on how to change the position of the player. All I know is that if I paste it in one of the pages, then it'll only be in that page. And if I paste it one every page, then it keeps starting back everytime I navigate to the next page. Anybody that can help me with this?

(it would be cool if it's on the poloroid pic, hmm..?)

You'll have to bear with the crudely positioned player for now. I'll try to solve this, or I'll just have to take it off.

Akak memang suka Beetles pun!

Your Summer Ride is a Beetle Convertible

Fun, funky, and a little bit euro.
You love your summers to be full of style and sun!

Afdlin's Angry!

Friday, August 19, 2005

How many of you have actually listened to Afdlin Shauki's album, Fuuyo? I mean the whole album - not just one or two rarely played tracks?

Not many, I guess. Reason being?


"Ntah la, aku cam tak nampak pun kat kedai." - Syamsiah, admin asst.

"Macamane nak dengar kalau tak jual?" - Juli, student

"Mase aku taknak beli, banyak je. Mase aku nak beli la habis." - Mick, writer

"It's never in stores, and I can't get it on the net." - Am, fulltime net surfer

"Sorry, gua tak layan Afdlin ah. Kalau rock gua dengar." Man, graphic artist


Many others are willing to testify to this weird phenomenon - Afdlin's album missing from the racks. Where has it gone? If you asked around, chances are shop owners would simply tell you that they're out of stock. But if that's so, you'd expect them to restock soon. Well, don't bet on it. Tak percaya? Go to the shop again in a month's time, pun still "no stock" jugak. Many of those I asked told me that they gave up their pursue after checking out two-three stores.


And Afdlin finally figured the problem out. The distributors frakk(hehe) up the whole thing. They didn't do shit for his album since they were only distributing it. Being Afdlin's own album, they didn't get the whole schamabang amount of dough. Kesian.

So the very pissed and determined Afdlin is now offering everyone his CDs for -get this - any amount they think the cds are worth. Yes, Afdlin has gone totally bonkers, and is doing something that even the multimillionaire Siti Nurhaliza wouldn't have the guts to. All his fans (and those who wants his cd) have to do is send him an email with their name and address, and he'll send his cd. Duit stem pun dia tanggung. Then, you send him the amount of money you think his cd is worth. Kalau 20sen, 20sen la. Kalau 40ringgit, then 40ringgit.

I salute the guy, man. He deserves a standing ovation. I mean, it is bad enough that he has to deal with Pirates of the Masjid India, he's now denting his pocket (and possibly his bank account) in the name of music and passion. Talk about bravery. This is like, the fear factor for musicians, man.

Afdlin, thumbs up to you!
Ini baru tanda orang kita dah merdeka. Ambil risiko, percaya pada diri, dan hidup dengan prinsip. Syabas!

Anda gila glemer?

Harry's back!!
I'm not a fanatic, but I love Harry Potter! Can't wait to see Goblet of Fire. In the spirit of the upcoming movie, here's something hilariously funny that I took from mugglenet.com . Check it out, they have tonnes of cool stuff. And for those non-Harrys out there, you can get anything and everything abt HP on the website.
Enjoy!

All Scar
To the tune of Allstar by Smashmouth
Somebody once told me: "Great things you're gonna show me,
Your wand's just like the one Voldie had"
She was looking kinda dumb standing up, lifting her hand,
In that class after those questions Snape asked.
Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Voldie's trying to kill me but I just keep on running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
I keep saving the world, I'm quidditch number one
So much to do, so much to see
So why not go through to Hogsmead?
You'll never know if you don't go
No butterbeer if you don't go
Hey now, you're an All Star, got your quidditch game, go play
Hey now, you have got a scar, fight Voldemort away
And all that glitters is gold
Only golden snitches break the mold
It's a cool place and they say it gets cooler
You beat Malfoy now, wait until you get older
But everyday Ginny loves you deeper
Judging by the way you saved her from Tom Riddle
The ice in the lake is getting pretty thin
The water's not warm but still Krum's gonna swim
My world's on fire, it was a screwt's work,
Walk them all day long and you'll never get bored
Hey now, you're an All Star, got your quidditch game, go play
Hey now, you have got a scar, fight Voldemort away
And all that glitters is gold
Only golden snitches...
Somebody once asked:"Can I take you to the dance?"
I need to get myself away from this place!
I can't dance! I'm stuck in a messI wanted to take Cho myself
But Cedric Diggory got her instead...
Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Voldie's trying to kill me but I just keep on running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
I keep saving the world, I'm quidditch number one
So much to do, so much to see
So why not go through to Hogmead?
You'll never know if you don't go
Ron: Go!
No butterbeer if you don't go
Hey now, you're an All Star, got your quidditch game, go play
Hey now, you have got a scar, fight Voldemort away
And all that glitters is gold
Only golden snitches break the mold
And all that glitters is gold
Only golden snitches break the mold

New skin up, yay!

Alrighto!
New skin is up, and i think this one has better space, right?
I know it might be some time before you get used to the navigation buttons, but i think it's kinda cool. Hassle? Takde ah... korang ni, gerakkan mouse pun malas...

Change is inevitable

Wednesday, August 17, 2005

I'm seriously thinking on changing the blog layout and background. Something with a bigger text box, coz I know some of you have been squinting your eyes while reading the blog. 

The thing is, I want something with a black background, but cant find any that suits me. Sedeynya...

Nak buat sendiri? Haiyo, I'm really stoopid in this html thing, and I really dont have the time to. Anyone willing to do me one? *wink*

Pergi balik Indonesia..cepat!

walaupun xhensem, tapi tetap elated gamba klua kat internet


Just look at that..gile ah...nice silhouette though.
Dr Darus bagi A tu...


No mask?


Wednesday was really2 bad. Alhamdulillah, KLCC doesnt look like this anymore. Shooh, shooh. Pi balik Indo.

W procrastinate too much

Thursday, August 11, 2005

Kadar jerebu di Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor hari ini sudah sampai di tahap merepek. Nampaknya kita seolah pulang ke 1997, bilamana langit Kuala Lumpur Selangor berganti biru dengan kelabu. Terasa macam dejavu pulak.

Pagi tadi, ramai jugak orang yang keluar di KL dengan topeng di muka. Memandangkan jerebu baru saja menyerang dengan dasyat, topeng2 semua nampak sama aje – standard surgical masks. Ramai jugak yang buat tak tahu, bernafas macam biasa. Samada diorang ni ada masalah respiratori (jantung&paru paru beteri kot…), ataupun yakin system daya tahan badan diorang hebat.

Aku, sebagai pengidap asthma (org Utara panggil ‘semput’), harus la dari awal lagi dah berjaga-jaga. Sebenarnya aku menyampah jugak nak pakai topeng topeng ni. All you asthmatics out there would understand how suffocating it is. Mana taknya, dah la susah nak bernafas, udara kena main tapis2 pulak tu. Tambah pulak dengan level oksigen yang macam hingin tak hingin je. Makin sesak la. Itu belum dikira dari segi fesyennya lagi…kehkehkeh…

Adam bagitau aku smalam yang dia takkan pakai topeng jerebu (TJ) kecuali kalau kerajaan mandatorikan. Intan pulak kata the mask just doesn’t go with her outfit. Ada yang kata susah la, buruk la, tak selesa la. Ada saja alasan diorang ni. Pakcik drebar bas 63 kat Bus Stand Klang pulak kata dia rasa rimas nak bawak bas sambil benda tutup muka. Masalahnya baikla benda tutup muka dari kain putih tutup muka, kan? (mintak maaf, statement sentap sikit)

Aku rasa orang Malaysia ni ada attitude problem la. Kita dah terbiasa dengan melengah-lengahkan benda. Ni kira budaya ‘Tak Apa’ la ni.

Belum kena, buat apa nak gelabah-gelabah?Releks la…

Apa, bos nak report ASAP? Alah, kang dekat dekat nak balik aku hantar la.

Weh, orang semua belajar berkobar-kobar ni.
Alah, tak apa la. Diorang nak berlumba, biarkan. Kalau semua berlumba sapa nak lepak?

Kita punya lack of timeliness dah jadi legend in this region. Malaysians late? Oh, that’s usual… Bangun tido lambat, pergi kerja lambat, pergi skolah lambat, hantar assignment lambat, pergi meeting lambat, lepak sampai lewat, tido lambat. Semuanya la kalau boleh nak lambat. Yang kita nak cepat cuma time gaji masuk, makan tengahari, balik kerja, waktu rehat.

I can safely vouch on these because I am a Malaysian myself. I’m not proud of it (the
Lambat issue) tapi kita kena terima realiti. I procrastinate too. Paling payah sekali bila nak bagun tidur pagi-pagi. Set jam pukul 5, lepas tu snooze 5 minit. Alarm bunyi balik, snooze lagi lima minit. Last-last pukul 5.20 baru bukak mata. Nak keluar rumah pukul enam setengah? Most probably lambat 5-10 minit. Alah, lima minit pun nak berkira, you say. Walaupun lima minit, itu bermakna aku tak boleh nak buat something dengan tepat. Memangkah mula-mula lima minit. Lepas tu sepuluh, lepas tu dua jam…


Dah tiba masanya kita bangun la(and that includes me!). Rasanya Tun M dah tahap redundant dah sebut pasal benda ni. I think Malay Dilemma should be a compulsory read for our school kids. Maybe buku tu agak radikal masa mula dikeluarkan, tapi dengan keadaan masa sekarang , I think it would be a good eye opener to the kids. Buat la jadi buku wajib tongkatan 5 ke…

Okay, I should go back to doing what should be doing – lunch. Babai!

Aku baru je dengar 'Dari kekasih kepada kekasih' versi M.Nasir.
Sorry bang Nasir, I love you to bits, tapi your version lacks umph, totally.
I think that was why you made this song for Hattan in the first place.

Very weak attempt la...
Weird too, as I've never really not like M.Nasir's work. This is my first M.Nasir no-no song.

I miss the good times




Here's that rainy day

Monday, August 08, 2005


I should have saved
Those leftover dreams
Funny
But here's that rainy day
Here's that rainy day
They told me about
And I laughed at the thought
That it might turn out this way
Where is that worn out wish
That I threw aside
After it brought my love so near
Funny how love becomes
A cold rainy day
Funny
That rainy day is here
It's funny
How love becomes
A cold rainy day Funny
That rainy day is here

Mindsay Memories: knightrider smightrider

Friday, August 05, 2005

it took me nearly 2 minutes to find my handphone in the bag this morn.

the lrt was jampacked, and i was trying to maintain my balance on one foot and not crushing a makcik in neon green baju kurung when my hp started ringing.
i have the knightrider theme as my ringtone, and usually it's prety cool - i loved the series when was small. but this morning it was really annoying, and the fast tune kinda made me really gelabah, it was going tet-tene-nene-nene-nene and everybody was looking at me. a guy in black snickered, one chinese lady rolled her eyes, and i tried to navigate my hand through the clutter of junk(can't be!) in me bag without injuring anyone with my elbow.

then it stopped.phew.

just as i zipped my bag (extra careful not to knock makcik-neon green), the phone started screaming again. shit. again, i tried to find the phone (which i can't see due to the fact that the bag was squashed between makcik-neon green's butt and a schoolboy's backpack) but i couldn't. i was still groping senselessly, the phone was stil going tet-tene-nene-nene-nene when a guy beside me said "tu la, yang pegi tinggal kereta tu kat rumah buat ape? kan dia dah panggil."

(which translates loosely as "who told you to leave the car at home, now it's calling for you.")

the crowd laughed.
i think i blushed. (not that you can see it, i'm kinda dark).

shish...malumalumalumalu!!

the caller turned out to be one of my asshole friends who was bored and wanted to chat about bangang airhead stuff.

why do you have to call at 7:30 in the morning?
while i'm sandwiched on the lrt?
why can't it be sometime later when i'm already in the office, or at night when i'm not doing anything?

whatever it is, i decided to do a serious inventory on the stuff in my bag.it's usually filled with stuff i need, no crap. (someone must've put a junk-curse on me).

So during lunchtime i emptied the content of my bag on me table...it overflowed.

The stuff in my bag:
Pandora novel by Anne Rice
me black purse
one small black note book
me black artsy sketch cum dream journal
one fountain pen
a cardholder
one comb
cookie monster+keys
jamie cullum cd
battered compact powder
a tube of m.a.c lipglass
a tube of watershine diamond liquid
watershine lipstick (that i don't use nmore)
tissues
more tissues
oldies mp3 cd
aids student short film vcd
love and peace button badge
a box of artic mints
2 packs of black halls mints
atm reciept
2 pairs of earrings (one broken)
one black floppy
2 small crumpled notes that i can't see the writing coz used pencil to write em down
a plaster
a hair clip
a hair stick
2 inhalers (just in case, heheh)
a bottle of oil-based clinique-happy imitation
a plasticbag of dem small sticker-pictures i call pichikura
a broken hairband
my lipbalm
handphone

no wonder i've been suffering from chronic shoulderaches..
heheh..

my colleague asked "why do you women carry so many stuff in their bag?"

my feminist side kicked in and i protectively retorted "we're always prepared."

"prepared? why do you need 2 packs of halls mints? in case it's 'eat some mint' day?"

i didn't know what to say, so i took the easy way out "oh, shut up!"

but now that i've cooled down (and feeling a bit silly), it does seem kinda weird. my guy friends all carry such small wallets.
where do they put their money?
coins?
cards?

kagum betul la...

(tempat kosong)


ditto.

Depa dah nak pi...


Ingat dak dua budak bio yang chek habaq masuk kerja sekali dengan chek haritu? Depa dah nak beghenti minggu ni. Chek pun kagum la jugak, pasai masa kami sembang2 haritu depa kata hujung bulan ni la kot baghu depa gerak.
Syariff yang bagitau kat chek. Mungkin depa bagitau kat dia semalam kot, masa chek tak kluaq makan tengahari.

Syariff pun dok pikiaq nak pi tempat lain jugak. Dia pernah kerja kat UiTM dulu, jadi kawan dia kat sana dok suruh dia apply balik. Lepaih tu ada sorang lagi bukak syarikat baru, pun dia dah hantaq resume.

Chek? Tak tau la… kalau ikut hati ni, ada la tawaq jugak. Chek tau, mesti ada yang kata
-Apa la kawan ni, baghu masuk kerja dah rasa tawaq ka? Bagi la chan dulu.-


Pasai bagi chan la chek masih tang ni. Kalau nak ikut badan-

Chek tanya kat kawan chek yang pernah kerja kilang lebih kurang macam tempat chek ni la, pasai keadaan chek. Dia buat business development dulu. Dia kata tempat dia dulu ok. Pelik pulak bunyi tempat chek ni beroperasi.


-Ko sure ke kerja setiap sabtu?-
-Sure la- chek jawab
-Ko ade shift ke?-
-Keje PR manade shift,balik lambat ade ah. Biasa ah tu. 9-6. Sabtu 9-1.- Chek balas balik.
-Company international ni pelik sikit beb. Ko kena teliti btol2, takut nanti dia perah ko abes2, ko dapat alahai ciput je.-
Itu ah pasal.-
-Mampus jugak la ko nak travel. Ko ade plan nak sewa kat SA ke?-
-Hmm…tak tau lagi la-
-Aku syorkan jangan lagi la. Tengok dulu. Tapi by the way ko cite kat aku, and dari rupe tempat keje ko, aku rase lebih baik la ko gi jadi operator kilang kat memane lain.-
-Operator kilang tak dapat gaji camni.-
“Bodo la ko, ko penting gaji ke penting happiness dan kebajikan ko?”


Kena bodoh dah.
Bodoh jugak la sebenaqnya.

Depa semua nak blah. Ni chek kena pikiaq bebetoi. Kalau chek blah, chek blah bukan pasai depa takdak, tapi pasai chek tak boleh kerja dan deliver dengan efektif kat tempat la ni.

We’ll see…

Jeling jeling jadi juling

Thursday, August 04, 2005

Aku tadek duit nak makan. Kerja pun bertimbun. So harini aku makan maggi in my mug aje la. Aku tak klua dari bilik, cume pegi kat water dispenser amik air panas. Aku masuk bilik, buat keje depan pc, sambil hirup megi.

Ade yang lalu depan bilik aku, pandang2.

Knape, nak bagitau yang kita takleh makan megi in my mug pulak ke? meh aku nak jawab:
"ini bukan nasi goreng ladna atau mi bandung ye. dalam mug sajorr!!!"

Music? Haram!!!


Okay, I dont know why, but it seems that a lot of things at the office are totally bangang and bullshit.

We’re not allowed to listen to music on speakers coz supposedly it distracts people and it's noisy, even if you play it at the lowest volume. Okay, I can understand that.

I brought me own headphones to work, and was listening happily to the songs on pc, when around 1030, Raj, the guy besides me tells me that the staff is not allowed to use headphones too as "it might reflect badly to the worker’s dedication and seriousness". Huh??! WTF?!

Pejadah saje? Tak pernah la aku denga lagi pasal ofis yang diharamkan dengar muzik. Gile ke hape…Bukannye aku pasang speaker, and I am doing my job. So if it distracts people if I have the speaker on, knape headphones pun kena ban gak?
Does listening to music reflects that I'm not a dedicated worker? Or that I'm not serious? It's not like I'm headbanging my way through worktime. It's f***ing Harry Connick Jr for crying out loud!

How stupid is this? Now Agni doesn’t seem like a nice place to work anymore. Hayoo…kerja sume nak lajulajulaju, tapi hak dan kebajikan employees tak hingin nak jaga.

Shit la…I want my music! I can’t live without it!!

Siapakah aku ini?

Wednesday, August 03, 2005

Siapakah aku ini
Yang berselindung disebalik Dia
Adakah bayang-bayangnya
Yang cuma muncul bila malam menyelimut bumi?

Siapakah aku ini
Yang hanya menadah air langit
Adakah pengemis hina
Yang mengutip sisa hidup di lorong sunyi?

Siapakah aku ini
Yang bingkas mengejar bulan
Adakah pungguk hilang sayap
Yang cuma melihat, mengidam namun tak mampu mengecap?

Siapakah aku ini
Yang asyik menarik jalur semalam
Adakah antagonis tua
Yang merayap dalam kedinginan hati semalam?

Siapakah aku ini
Yang masih berada di sini
Adakah penanti detik
Yang meneleku di birai kelam sebalik suria

Mungkinkah aku
Dia?
Atau mungkin juga aku
Adalah engkau?

Profit oriented to the max

Tuesday, August 02, 2005


I just found out that if you want coffee, you pay for it. If you make coffee from the supply in the pantry, they charge you. Pay RM25 per month and you get two drinks per day. Still wanna drink without paying? Bring your own 3in1 sachets.

Throughout my whole existence, I’ve never heard of a pantry that charges the employees. Seriously. Even MAC, which is an NGO, does not charge the workers. The Milos, coffees and milk were prepared.

Either I’m really2 na├»ve, or this company is really2 bent on making profit, man…

A new beginning

Monday, August 01, 2005


Today I start working with a fuel cell technology company in Shah Alam. Yeah, those who know me would trestify that this is not the kind of job that Ely Azyze would be interested in. Well, to tell the truth, I'm not head over heals with the job. The only reason I took it is because they pay better then any other offers I got, and that the post is quite impressive.

But the impressiveness comes with quite a few sacrifices. First, there's the travelling. Shah Alam is situated on the opposite side of Selangor . I have to take the LRT from WMaju, then the bus fr KL to Shah Alam. Nasib baik la the bus stops exactly in front of the office. Tapi kena la gak bangun awal, kan?


Second, there's the job. This is my first day, so I haven't been handed anything serious yet. All I have to do today is internet research on the company's hits, and any possible market and business openings. Yeah, as dull as duh. When I was with MAC last year, I had the chance to do lotsa stuff, and they vary from filing to press kits to designing to editing. HEre they have their own meletop designers and stuff, and a profit oriented company would definately not have press releases as often as we did in MAC.

Next, working Saturdays. That means all Saturdays. Not just the second and fourth, but all of it. Knape tak suruh aku tido kat ofis je??

Then there's the working environment. It's not that I don't like what's happening / how things are, but it seems that these guys (I'm the only female in the department) are not as friendly as I hoped they would be. Maybe they are just as uncomfortable as I am. Thank god the one sitting to my right is a chatterbox. He happens to be new too, so we kinda have the budak baru thing. But he's the Luxor salesman type, so he went on and kinda made new friends at the canteen. Yeah, I warm up kinda late in that sense.

The toilet is far. It's about two minutes away from my room. OUt the door, walk down a corridor, through the tinytinytiny pantry room, pass the labs, turn right. Oh, toilet ni main kunci2 pulak. There's only one toilet, and one key, so I have no idea on how to cope during emergencies, especially if someone is in the toilet at that time.

Now that i've mentioned the pantry, i might as well describe it. The pantry (if there is such thing here) is a small box room that has a flask, an eletrical jug, a fridge, and a few glasses. That's it. Only two can fit in at a time. More,and you'd be mashing into one another.


But then again, I might no be doing justice to this place. I have only been here for like, what, 6 hours? And I choose to come and work here. So I should just stop yapping and give it a try, no? I'll write a report once I enter my forst month (hoping I pass the first month la, kan?)
