GELENDONG

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Bayangkan kejadian ini berlaku sekitar 2002.

Lokasi: Gerai Din Satay Seksyen 2 Shah Alam.
Props: Nasi goreng ayam, nasi goreng ladna, milo ais, nasi campur, teh o ais limau 2.
wardrobe: kepunyaan masing-masing.


Jozzie: Wuih, nasi goreng ladna lagi. Ko tak bosan ke makan tu je?

Saya: Okay pe NGL. Ade nasik, ade kuah. Masak pun cepat siap.

Marlia: Makan je la nasik campur.

Saya:: Sementara aku masih mampu makan pelbagai-bagai ni, baik aku gumbira hati.

Jozzie:: Kang dah jadik macam Mary susah pulak kan? Dok sayur aje... Lame tu dia jadik vegetarian... aku tak sanggup wo.

(que: Mary masuk frame dengan sepinggan nasi campur. Dia pun duduk semeja)

Marlia: Mary, kau ni pening ke ape arini?

Mary: Apesal plak?

Jozzie: (muka kagum) Itu ayam tu. Disebabkan ko dah terambik, ape kata bagi kat ku je?

Marlia:: Ini gelendong cinta agaknya.

Saya: (ketawa) Aku sanggup berlakon jadik muka tapir siot kalau Mary tetiba makan ayam.

Marlia: (muka paling selamba)Ini bukan tersilap ambik ni, ini memang nak makan.
(dan tangan pantas menyuap ayam goreng)

Saya, Jizzie, Marlia: (terkedip-kedip bila tengok Mary makan ayam)...

Mary: Mana muka tapir ko?

Saya:Ini buakn gelendong cinta ni Marlia, aku rasa ni Dendam Cinta Berahi dah ni...

(que: Ely mula membuat muka tapir dari Sek2 ke kelas ke rumah)

Masa Untuk Melepaskannya...

8 tahun yang lalu kawan-kawan sekelas saya punyalah dasyat gelakkan saya bila membaca tulisan saya dalam autograf seorang rakan:

Who's your favourite singer right now?
Michael Bolton


Tapi betul..walaupun saya ada dengar Nirvana sikit-sikit, ada ikut perkembangan rock kapak tanahair, pilihan muzik saya agak... ter'kona' sedikit dari remaja seumur saya pada masa itu.

Paling saya suka adalah A Tuime For Letting Go dari album The One Thing. Suara si Bolton, perrgghh....


A Time For Letting Go - Michael Bolton
Sometimes you find out what you wanted
Isn't really what you need
And the dream in all its promise
Was never meant to be
All your hopes and desperation
Won't make it like it was
And you believe the pain will never end
Believe me in time it does

CHORUS
You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone
When your golden road has reached the end
You find the strength to start again you know
There's a time for love and a time for letting go

When you're standin' tall tomorrow
Looking back at yesterday
Through the memory of your sorrow
How the dawn was so far away
You'll be far beyond the shadow
Where hearts can learn to shine
And you'll realize the endless night
Was only a moment in time

You've gotta know when love is over
You've gotta learn to carry on
And with the world upon your shoulders
You walk away when hope is gone
When your golden road has reached the end
You find the strength to start again you know
There's a time for love and a time for letting go

The night is long the night is cold
With nothing to believe in
Just hold on, 'cause life goes on
Your new day is waiting, let go and let it begin

post emo luahan hati seorang kakak terdera

Saya rasa tertekan bila apa yang saya suka, turut disukai adik saya. Saya faham yang saya tak punyai hak mutlak keatas apa-apa perkara umum. Tapi masalahnya, bila adik saya turut suka perkara itu, dia akan suka tahap melonjak dan akan beritahu seisi alam bahawa dia meminati/ menyukai benda/perkara itu. Melebihi saya yang mungkin lebih dahulu mengetahui dan meminati benda/perkara tersebut.

Saya ingat lagi ketika saya mula-mula gilakan Aerosmith dahulu. Saya kumpul duit sekolah untuk membeli kaset mereka. Terkinja seronok bila radio memutar lagu kumpulan tersebut (sememangnya Aerosmith jarang menjadi pilihan stesen radio komersil). Air liur saya hampir meleleh bila I Don't Want To Miss A Thing mula ditontonkan di TV. Saya ingat lagi statement adik-adik saya bila tengok saya bagai dihypnotize setiap kali lagu tersebut muncul.

"Kak, ini yang ko suka? Orang tua mulut besar ni?"
"Ini nak cebok berak sendiri pun belum tentu larat ni."
"Alamak Kak Yana, knape dia dah kerepot pun Kak Yana suke?"

Punyalah mereka tak faham. Bila saya katakan Steven Tyler adalah antara lelaki terawal yang saya masukkan dalam senarai Jejaka Idaman (berangan) saya, jenuh saya digelakkan.

Tapi tau-tau, seorang dari adik saya suka pula pada Aerosmith. Aikk.... dulu punya mengutuk. Bila dia jauh dari keluarga, lagaknya bagai dia yang paling suka Aerosmith dalam keluarga. Siap tulis dalan senarai lelaki idaman dia pula.Double aiik. (ketika post ini ditulis, dua dari tiga adik saya mengakui yang mereka sukakan Aerosmith)

Dulu seorang dari adik saya suka sangat sangat sangat dengan Spain dan negara seangkatan dengannya. Mungkin pengaruh telenovela, mungkin eksotiknya, mungkin sejarahnya. Entahlah, saya pun tidak tahu. Kalau diberi pilihan untuk melawat mana-mana negara, Spain dan Itali jadi pilihannya. Saya lebih teringin untuk ke Scotland dan Ireland. Bahasanya, suasananya, green slopes that stretches forever, semuanya bagai mengungkap bahasa cinta abadi bagi saya. Hati saya tenang bila melihatnya. Pertama kali menonton Trainspotting, mata saya terpukau pada lanskap hijau negara tersebut. Bagai boleh saya hidu bau rerumput segar. Ditambah pula dengan buku-buku Highlands, Norse & Celtic romances yang saya baca...semuanya menambah keinginan saya untuk ke negara clover & plaids itu.

Baru-baru ini kami rancak berbual dengan sepupu yang pernah belajar di luar negara. Dalam asyik dia bercerita mengenai Brisbane, dia tanya kami tentang negara idaman kami. Belum sempat saya membuka mulut, adik saya pantas menyebut
"Spain dengan Scotland! Two opposite countries, but sangat cantik, sangat unique in its own ways. And guys n kilts are so irresistable!"

Hampeh! Pekebende? Hello! Statement pakai kilts tu dah saya gunakan dari dulu lagi (ya, saya tak tahan tengok lelaki pakai kilts. Walaupun orang itu buruk macam Prince Charles. Ewan McGregor? *Saya dah cair*). Tak percaya, buka friendster saya. Bila sepupu saya pandang saya, saya cuma mampu tersenyum.

"Yeah, whatever she says."
"Takkan takde favourite country yang nak pi?"
"Taken. I guess Mekah la. Tapi tu wajib pegi kalau mampu pegi. Idaman tu...ntah."

Malas nak layan. Ape tak tensyen ke? Tensyen kan? kan? kan?

Itu baru sikit. Sekarang kalau bila buka bab spiritual dan new age things, mesti dia yang menang. Dia memang bercakap ala-ala kiut dan longing sangat, terutamanya kalau benda tu dia suka dan tak dapat. Tinggal tak cukup gedik sahaja. Bila saya mula pakai kristal (kata kawan baik untuk keseimbangan badan), dia tiba-tiba sangat berminat dengan Tarot. Aiik? Nak jugak?

Oh well, apa-apalah. Malas nak fikir.

(Kan dah saya katakan ini post emo luahan hati seorang kakak terdera)

George, mandarin, etcetera

Thursday, June 08, 2006

It's been quite a while since I dropped a note here. A lot has happened in these few days, but none that would actually interest any of you reading this blog. But since I'm the owner of azyze.blogspot.com, Imma rapp you up with them anyway.


Mandarin Designs mention
My blog's link was featured in MandarinDesign Blog. I was there a couple of minutes ago for some CSS tips and as I was scrolling down, I saw 'shake your thang' listed on the New Sites Coming In area (on the left part of the page). I'm not really sure if this is like an automated tracker that lists any site that's surfing Mandarin at the current time, or if they have somehow managed to find my blog on the net and thought that it's worth promoting. So this entry will be in english, for the benefit of those accidentally surfing my blog.



Pegawai Tadbir Diplomatik
Yupp, you read it right. I was in Cheras for the last two days. PTD Exam. I'm happy with my current job in Avon, don't get me wrong. I recieved a full scholarship from JPA for my degree, so I'm committed to take exams and take up suitable position openings. I'd only want to work for the government if it's PTD,and at Wisma Putra. Not to say that I'm THAT good, but hey, I did graduate with honors. And besides, we all know how our government servants (sounds sooo evil lord torturing vermins, eh?) work. Early lunches, long tea breaks, underachieve, the works. Bukan semua, but a majority of them does it like they actually own the govt.

We'll see how things goes la. I'll keep y'all posted.



Razif a.k.a George
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Gol & Gincu TV Series' poster! Is that...is that... it is!!!! My junior in high school, George! One of the main characters! Wow... startsruck sangat, hehehe. I know, I know. Being from Melawati and an ex-masscomm student, I should be used to seeing people I know on TV. Heck, I think almost half of the Melawati's population is on screen. But George (his real name is Razif, but everyone calls him George) is one of the rare special mentions in my memory box.
(stop imagining things! I DO NOT have a crush on him)

He was a real maniac. He's so funny and articulate. George and Vishnu were the only 2 guys from SMTM that really gets me laughing like mad! (Thus the special mention in my memory box) Unfortunately, me & George, we weren't close enough for me to actually label him as a 'friend'. The closest I got was when we were in the same entrepreneur's club. Back then I always managed to make an ass out of myself so I don't think I was ever seen as a potential friend to him. If somebody were to show my picture to him now he'd probably go "Kinda familiar, but...no, don't know her."

Tapi takpe la, that doesn't stop me from telling my friends about him. muahahahaha!!!!! (pathetic, I know).



Drop Deadlines
Drop deadlines are called so because they're dates that; if exceeded; would mean doomsday for you. Although my department works under the 'deadline - drop deadline' system, I don't have a drop deadline. in fact, my deadline is my drop deadline. I try to complete things at least 2 days before my deadlines. Good right? Wrong (according to my colleague, anyway).

When you finish your work earlier than the given date, they wold just load you with more stuff, and then you'd have to rush for the other deadlines then you won't have time to finish them and even if you do you'd just get more stuff so you - HALT!!

So you see, that's why I should stop typing here, and start finishing my campaign 17 manuscript.

Tata toddles!!!
