Secondhand Smoker

Si kacak hensem laksana bulan di pagar bintang memerhatikan rakan sekerjanya yang ayu bak Siti Nurhaliza memakai tudung litup. Dan dia kuatkan azam. Mesti hari ni juga! Didekatinya si ayu, asap berkepul-kepul di mulut, dan berkata:

Kacak: Jom couple dengan saya.

Ayu: (Senyum) Maaf, saya rasa kalau kita bersama, kita takkan kekal lama.

Si kacak kaget. Belum apa-apa lagi sudah beri prediction?

Kacak: Awak tukang tilik? Mana awak tahu kita tak kekal lama?

Si ayu senyum, menggelengkan kepala. Si kacak bengang. Aku jejaka idaman satu Malaya, apsal minah ni tanak kat aku?

Kacak: Apsal kerek sangat? Aku tau la kau cun. Aku bukan ajak kau nikah kat Siam. Ajak couple je kot?

Si ayu tergamam.

Kacak: Kau tu bukan muda sangat pun. Kejap lagi kerepot sana, kerepot sini. Karang tak boleh beranak, baru tahu.

Ayu: (Senyum lagi) Saya ni ada masalah pernafasan sejak kecil. Kalau saya bersama perokok tegar macam awak, peluang hidup saya berkurangan. Nanti jangankan anak, peluang nak kerepot pun takkan ada.

Si kacak terkedu. Lalu dia mengundur diri.

Core Leave 2012

I'm gonna have my core leave of 10 days next month. 10 effin days. But I still haven't decide what to do - other than stay at home.

But one thing I don't understand - why do people think that you must go for a vacation during your long leave? I got people around me asking what's my plan and where would I go in that planned 10-day leave, and they were quite amused when I said I don't have any plans other than to stay at home.

Yes I understand, that this length of time might be the only chance in this whole year for me to get around, travelling.

But seriously? Can't I just relax for that full 10 days? It's not like I'll be relaxing every day; I still would have to fetch me dad from his dialysis every Tue, Thu and Sat. I still would cook for the entire family (at home), do some house cleaning + washing laundry, buy groceries, etc.

It's not that I have a knack for travelling pun.

Especially if I go somewhere with the people whose company I won't be enjoying, or they won't enjoy mine. Who don't have the same level of thinking as mine and vice versa. Who would want me to chip in fares to go places they want to go or do things they want to do, but not mine.

And it's not that I can't travel alone. The only thing that would put me off is me not leaving the paid-for bed to enjoy the surrounding scenery or something like that. Like, pergi jauh2 tapi duk kat bilik dan tido je?

Dah dasar pemalas. Baik takyah pergi.

I think I'd rather save all that money for my expensive trip next year.

...No I Don't Think It Was Enough.

Source: meth-induced @ tumblr


I know this has been a trend - me going on Blogspot after a length of time, said hi, made a little update, just to go off for another length of time.

Yet again, it's not because that I don't have any ideas - I do, lots of them, but when they're around I would normally be busy doing something else. And when I actually went to create a post, they'll be gone.

Hmm takpelah.

So instead of me giving updates of what had happened in that length of time, I think It would be better if I put something that's is on my mind right now?

(Which is nothing)

Sebenarnya ada masa menaip ni, bukan la sebab ada masa. But then, sebab wiken ni agak rajin, so I actually completed about 2/3 of my translation work which is due on the 23rd.

Quick update before I go to sleep.

1. No, I did not get the position that I applied for. And yes, I'm thankful - bad news for you (the monkey), though. Since you (the monkey) expected me to be utterly depressed and miserable for not getting it. Well yeah I'm just assuming. Since you (the monkey) like to assume I like to assume. Ok let's cut it here.

2. Lost two of my watches within a span of 2 weeks. Bought the same one as the first one (but different color) yesterday. Through eBay. Desperately wanted the same one, thus that happened.

3. Methinks I'm now in the phase of not interested in group chatting anymore. Being the antisocial person I am, twas a bit awkward sending whatapps messages to a group I newly joined which consists of the ladies of my school batch.

4. I regret playing Triple Town. I've to say byebye to $3.99 (methinks) to get the full version. This is coming from me who initially said the phone is for normal phone activities incl. occasional online experiences. Not for games, she said.

5. Lapar.

It was quite funny when I...

1. Set the alarm to ring in 5 minutes after isya' prayers;
2. Waited for the alarm to ring;
3. Switched the alarm off;
4. Fell asleep for ten minutes after that.

As if that alarm was a snooze.

Sabar je la, kan.

Saya ketinggalan bas, jadi ini untuk mengisi masa lapang.

Pada ketika ini saya berada di surau office. Hasrat di hati nak balik naik bas jam 220 tadi, tapi apakan daya, setelah menunggu sampai 240 tiada bas mahupun van langsung.

Terpaksa pasrah.

Lalu saya pun naik semula ke atas dan pergi solat isyak. Nak solat terawih, takut terlepas the next bus pulak.

Tak pasal2 kena pasrah lagi.

Ni kalau kul 320 takde bas gak... sahur kat padi la nampaknya.

Memblog dari sitri

(yes I'll call this thing sitri from now on)

I've lost count how many times I wanted to blog recently. There's a lot of things on my mind. But then it seems like I do not have the time to arrange my words properly, due to the lack of time partly, and the lack of enthusiasm mostly. Ah well.

Ramadan is approaching, just around the corner. But somehow I don't think I'm as excited as before. Most probably caused by the hectic months faced previously, and the sloppy new sitting arrangements contribute to this largely. Up til now, I still have not got my telephone extension. Which is very <i>great</i>.


Only two days back I was (this) much inclined to draft my resignation letter, but then I thought about my commitments and I regressed.


Oklah. I'm already halfway on my journey to Cyberjaya. Gonna take a short nap before reaching the office.

Membakar Kelambu

Because I was mad at someone (and also myself), I have resorted to opt out the social media where I have most friends, because, apparently, I should not and have no point having them all.

Lepas ni kalau kena kacau dengan nyamuk lagi, maybe i'll opt out twitter? I don't really have that many friends on twitter pun... entahlah.

I am the frog who refuses to get out of my coconut shell.

Weekend baru ni kan pegi Kedah for majlis Cia belah lelaki pulak. I dunno, maybe because I was too tired or not enough sleep, petang Sabtu tu aku pi bantai tidur instead of following mom to Pekan Rabu yang sangat hampir dengan hotel. And the next morning pulak lepas breakfast pi sambung tidur sampai masa untuk berkemas dan checkout.

Bila dah balik rumah, baru terasa macam loser. I mean, I was geared up with my digihari and should take the opportunity to grab some pics for my tumblr updates.

Instead, it seems like sleep is much more important to me. Aigoo. I am thirty plus YO, and I think I should see the world more before it's too late, don't you think?

Can somebody take me away please?

Humpty Dumpty Had A Great Fall

Had a dream this afternoon. I was inside a bus when suddenly I was suspended in the air for a short while and had a free fall. It was an earthquake. What happened afterwards was what you normally see in the movies.

Tiada kopi enak - marah
Tiada air panas - marah
Tiada gula dan krimer - marah

Tiada air panas - meletup

Ketagih maksiat
Ketagih dosa

It has been a challenging month, last April. Lots of things happened in one go. Most of them are ridiculous, to keep the story short: having to layan a big baby with an enormous tantrum ever. Sigh. No more layaning that person ever again. Buang masa dan buang tenaga. Baik aku layan Rooftop Prince.

Vector Patterns by COLOURlovers

Sekarang ni jam 1:26am. Duduk kat bus stop depan opis, semata2 nak download. Bukannya tak boleh nak kejar bas 1:20am tadi, tapi oleh kerana dah bawak Gary ni, duduk la kejap mendunlut. Begitulah nasib orang yang menggunakan talian tenet super slow kat rumah. Sigh. Orang unifi ni kata nak masuk hujung bulan 1, ni dah masuk bulan 4 pun tak masuk2 lagi. Gaban giler okey.

Agenda untuk bulan ni... oh baru teringat, hari ini ialah hari kelahiran saya dalam bulan Hijriah. Dan lima hari lagi pula hari jadi bulan Masihi muhehehehe. Saje je nak jadi random.

So agenda untuk bulan ini, selain daripada membuat translasi... tak de kot. Cuma terasa sejak membuat sub untuk Attic Prince ni, tak de la rasa di hujung nyawa nak mengejar deadline. Mungkin sebab banyak ayat yang berulang2, dan juga sebab jalan cerita dia bes...

Hmm apa lagi.

Ada la jugak terasa nak duk rumah Puncak Alam sana (RUMAH UNTUK DISEWA - SILA TINGGALKAN INFO DI RUANG KOMEN), tapi memandangkan nak buat trans ni perlu ada google dan site DBP untuk rujukan, maka terpaksalah membatalkan hasrat buat masa ini. Sigh.

Seriously, I don't know what to blog. There are no significant events that I want to share publicly, jadi itu menyumbang kepada bloggers' block sekarang ni. Huhuhuhu.

Entry ni sekadar untuk cukup syarat (dan mengiklan RUMAH PUNCAK ALAM UNTUK DISEWA whuuhuhwuhuwhuwuh.)

Breaking the Norm.

iTunes playin' UUU by Wheesung

No, actually taking a break from translating.

It was a hectic month, March was. Mostly because of the wedding held for my sisters. Lots of thing happened, one of it would be one of the celebrated sisters warded due to bacteria infection. Agak sedih la, knowing how much she had spent - money, energy and time - for her wedding to go well. Hmm, takpelah, dah takdir Allah nak jadi macam tu. I won't story much about the wedding, apart from the event went for 3 days straight. Penatnya sampai sekarang tak sudah. And I did not have the heart to speak back to Mum yang expects me to do every housework all by myself, now there's no one else at home. Cukuplah kan pasal tu. Buat penat je nak fikir. All I know I have to be stronger now.

Apart from the wedding, it was also tiring since I had to back up one of my colleague. Masalahnye bukan the backing up, but another back up. Let's just say that back up did not live up to the words and promises made - in other words, agak menyusahkan aku jugak la. And also kisah sistem buat pasal big time pulak. Penat. Penat bangat.

Hopefully April this year will bring many happiness to me and the people around me.

Welcome, April, to my embrace.

Like, Whatever.

"The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off." - by someone I follow in Twitter
I just can't help thinking about something someone said to me when I mengumpat someone we both know when I thought of a close friend of mine suddenly while reminiscing something funny that my close friend would do.

So on that day, I mengumpat to that someone (B) about that someone we know (A), saying this that this that (well you should know how an umpatan goes, aduh banyaknye daging busuk yang saya makan huhuhuh) and then I said something about A was being too... annoyingly spoilt.

Then B suddenly said, "You cannot simply judge people. It's actually because of he upbringing that A becomes like that. You know, A was *like this like that* by her parents, that is why A is like that now. A cannot help it if it turns out like that."

B was defending A's behaviour badly, said that was not A's choice to be like that. B also made a reference to her own parents, who B claimed made her life super miserable now.

If it's not because B was so persistent that I couldn't even give my rebuttal, I've surely gave her a piece of my mind.

You see, I beg to differ slightly.

Yes, it is true that parents do influence their child's behaviour in a way or another. You can feel it in your own self. Whether they influenced you in a good way or in a bad way.

But that should not be the reason why your attitude sucks at this age. As you become older, you should become wiser, knowing what's wrong or right by yourself. You can change yourself to what you want to be. Your bad behaviours, being said which were influenced by your parents, should be able to be fixed by you yourself.

Do not, ever, fully blame your parents of how ugly your behaviour now. No matter how much you hate them.

If you think it's ugly, fix it. Change it and tailor it to what you want it to be. Put some botox or whatever enhanced surgery if you want.

The main thing is have some respect for your parents. They're the ones made you see the world. Even if they disown you, that does not erase the fact that you have their DNA in your stinking blood, you ungrateful bag of filthy flesh.

And it seems like you are a better expert in judging people (in this case, their parents). But then, whatever.

Mana Firaun Pakai Sultan...

Henpon playin' Uri Chigeum Manna (Let's Meet Now) by Leessang. Sangat sesuwei dengan waktu ini. Maksudnye marilah solat sekarang. Sebab dah Subuh.

Ni la... nak habaq mai pasal sorang fir'aun yang juga hamba Allah tapi tak sedar diri. Ada la sorang sohabat dia ni, membuat pasal, yang tak pasal2 aku jugak terlibat dengan sengaja. Bukan aku sengaja nak melibatkan diri, tapi sebab sohabat fir'aun ni juga tergolong dalam golongan hamba Allah yang tak sedar diri, maka dia pun membabitkan aku supaya menjadi rela dalam paksa.

Anyways nak jadikan cerita, si fir'aun ni pun mengadu kat aku pasal sohabat dia yang sorang ni, and I was like, what?? Aku hengat dia akan defend kemain la sohabat dia sorang ni, ghopenye dia pun tawa dalam tangisan jugak. Adey la. Payah kan kalau status bersohabat tu. Karang kalau sound depan2 ambik hati pulak. Dah la sohabat dia ni memang jenis kuat terasa. Nak jaga hati sohabat punye pasal, jadilah fir'aun tu tawa dalam tangisan.

So aku pun dengan halusnye memberi smekdaun sikit pada fir'aun tu. Kasi dia sedar diri sikit supaya tidak jadi sama level dengan sohabat dia yang agak keji jugak la.

Selepas itu sang kancil pun beramai-ramai pergi mengadap sultan fir'aun. Mana fir'aun pakai sultan.. ntah.

Eh ape da mengarut.
