blue eyes boy that got.....AWAY or more fitting, screwed at..

TETIBA aku baru mendapat berita yang taktau nak kategorikan sebagai gembira ke duka ke...but one thing for sure, it had quite an effect on me..the feelings a bit unknown..tapi aku konfem bukan gembira bila aku dapat tahu seseorang bernama NS telah dikurniakan anak (post ini terpaksa ditulis dalam bm sbb manalah tahu NS baca, dia tak paham bm ..)

NS..aku patutnya rasa happy untuk kau, tapi aku tak rasa pun macam tu..takdelah happy sangat..tapi aku tahu kau happy, bila tengok gambar-gambar terbaru kau tu bersama kurniaan Allah yang diberikan nama Yusuf.

MMG cantik nama tu, secantik bayi yang dilahirkan. Berkulit putih, dan mewarisi sepasang mata biru NS.

MATA BIRU? ye NS bukan melayu. Mahupun bukan Malaysian. Tapi NS seorang MUSLIM. malah lebih muslim daripada aku..

KEPADA NS, jauh disudut hati aku doakan terbaik buat kau. NS was indeed what i would considered, the one that got away..but i was the one that made NS got away, i screwed that chance..

YES silly me i know, anyone else would jump in joy knowing a 'mata biru' wanted your hands in matrimony, tapi aku TIDAK semudah ini biarpun si mata biru satu ini mahu ke tahap the 'big next step' dengan aku.

TAPI aku tetap turn NS down, bukan sebab dia tak kacak (actually NS tergolong dalam kategori si mata biru yang sangat kacak, malah jadi gilaan ramai pompuan, sehinggakan aku rasa seperti tak sepadan, lalu rasa rendah diri);

MALAH bukan juga kerana agama (NS bukan seperti kebanyakkan si mata biru yang perlu meng-convertkan diri sekiranya melangkah ke 'big next step' kerana si mata biru NS yang satu ini sudah lama mengislamkan dirinya sejak berusia 16 tahun)...

TETAPI aku tolak NS kerana entahlah, mungkin aku bodoh dan takut aku tak mampu menjadi seorang muslim yang baik untuk NS yang amat-amat pada pandangan aku telah 'disucikan' Allah dengan hidayahNya...atau mungkin sememangnya aku NAK melayu jugak! senang makan masak lomak cili api dan bukan pizza cheese hari-hari...atau mungkin sebab aku takut dengan idea yang NS mahu bawak aku berhijrah jauh ke bumi amerika selepas that next big step..

YANG bestnya, aku memang yang meng-screw-up-kan apa sahaja kategori perhubungan yang NS dan aku ada masa itu.

SUDAHLAH jarak jauh (tapi awas bukan perkenalan alam maya..semuanya bermula di satu kedai merchandise dan aku diberikan salam oleh si NS membuatkan aku terkejut beruk sebab dia berpakaian ala-ala artis R&B amerika bersama rakannya yang gaya seperti ahli band POD dengan dreadlocks) tapi NS tetap ingin mengenali aku dan hubungan itu bertukar PJJ, dengan balasan emel panjang lebar setiap hari ..kemudian satu hari aku biarkan NS begitu sahaja, dan 'lari' sehinggakan suatu hari NS 'jumpa' aku di satu laman sosial dengan gambar-gambar perkahwinan aku sudah dimuat-naikkan.

NS mengirim satu emel untuk mengesahkan hal itu. Satu emel yang agak, direct dan berbaur kecewa namun NS doakan terbaik buat aku.

TAK lama selepas itu, NS khabarkan dia pula akan menjejaki langkah yang sama seperti aku- 'the big next step' dengan seorang XX berbangsa Afrika yang hanya dikenali NS selama 6 bulan!

KATA NS dalam emel itu, dia tak pun bercinta dengan XX (kini isteri NS yang sah) malah selama tempoh perkenalan, NS hanya keluar (dating) dua kali dengan XX!

KETIKA itu aku rasa memang aku telah kecewakan NS..dan apa yang NS rasa terhadapkan aku adalah genuine.

TAPI aku telah buat keputusan masa itu.. dan aku pilih XY bernama R sebagai suamiku...aku yakin R jodohku dan dia sememang sangat baik terhadap aku...AKU SAYANG R sangat-sangat, semestinya...

KINI kami sudah pun memasuki tahun ke-3 perkahwinan dan mempunyai seorang anak perempuan...biarpun tiada seorang daripada suami dan anak bermata biru (takpe kalau kemaruk sangat nanti anak aku besar, aku suruh pakai contact lens) aku berharap apa yang dibina berkekalan selamanya dan paling penting..bahagia.

BUKAN niat aku mengenang2kan NS. tahlah, selama aku sudah berkahwin kali terakhir kami berbalas emel dalam setahun lepas.

NS sekadar bertanya khabar sesama sendiri. Dan NS setiap kali tiba harijadi aku (setakat ini) tidak lupa mengucapkan tahniah (kerana tarikh lahir kami hanya beza 3 hari dalam bulan yang sama, mungkin kerana itu mudah ingat.. (tapi itu bukan big deal, aku sehingga hari ini boleh namakan beberapa orang yang tarikh lahir sama bulan dengan aku - aku ingat tarikh-tarikh itu HANYA sebab kawan-kawan yang dimaksudkan sama bulan dengan aku, itu je)

MEMANG tiada perasaan lagi antara aku dan NS...

Malah istilah kawan pun mungkin tak sesuai ntahlah walaupun aku masih nak kekalkan sebagai kawan yelah kita tak tahu manalah tahu satu hari nanti aku perlukan bantuan dia sekiranya menjejakkan kaki di bumi asing penuh si mata biru itu..

DAN DONT GET ME WRONG, tulisan di sini bukan aku dok teringat ke kat NS .. TETAPI seperti awal perenggan di atas, aku jadi DI-INGATKAN bila terpandang update dia dalam satu laman sosial.

NS, kini satu kenangan yang tersendiri...

TAPI manalah tahu suatu hari nanti, anak aku hana dipertemukan dengan anak NS..nah hamik kau boleh lah berbesan :) kalau jadi begitu, mungkin cucu aku dapat mewarisi mata biru atau kaler lain la...;p

Moral of the story: jangan suka kecewakan orang, jangan pilih seseorang sebagai teman hidup hanya kerana luaran, bangsa e.g. mata biru ke walaupun ada si mata biru yang nakkan anda, tetapi lihat faktor dalaman dan tanya hati sendiri, adakah orang itu yang anda mahukan untuk hidup bersama hingga akhir hayat.......DAN kalau terkinang-kinang bukan maksud terbayang-bayang..kadang-kadang kita teringat kerana ada insiden yang mengingatkan kita..sama seperti kes cerita aku ini.

akhir entry, i love what i have now...kepada en suami, you're everything to me, terima kasih kerana ayah suami yang baik (walaupun garang kadang-kadang :p ) dan harap jodoh kita selamanya amin.

UPDATED (2012): aku terjumpa balik email2 yang panjang di MS (laman sosial yang mengekalkan hubungan aku dgn NS selain email2 lain). Membacanya semula baru aku nampak memang NS sangat suka dengan aku, dan aku yang 'chicken-out' dengan tindakan NS itu. Sekarang, MS sudah tidak aktif, baik NS mahu aku aktif di FB namun kami sekadar 'silent viewers' yang sesekali menghantar komen atau menekan butang 'like' antara satu sama lain. Anak NS sangat tembam dan comel (masakan tidak lihat sahaja campuran baka mereka Amerika + Afrika...melihatkan anak NS aku terfikir sekiranya aku tak menolak NS, anak itu boleh jadi Amerika + Malaysia). Wow. I was really head over heels over NS. We were heads over heels over each other...but I screwed him. I ditched him.

Tortoise-like speed drivers should be penalized too!

FIRST of all, i am so not inferring the tortoise-like speed drivers to senior citizens. I mean, I am not that harsh and inconsiderate. Senior citizens...really ought to be given a break, while i am it, equally forgiven are 'expired' cars, rotten, bumper terlondeh, you get the idea what i am talking about ...cars with bad conditions. I mean, you can/should also give those conditions a break.

HOWEVER, those so-called cautious, good, traffics abiding drivers with 30km/h speedometer or less really ticks me off!

SURE, there are times when you just want to have a relax drive..but that can be done if you're on a countryside, travelling down a road while at the same time try taking in the scenic landscapes, with air brushing your face, your gf/bf/scandals by your side..you know like in the movies!

BUT, on a one/two lane route? Realllllllly pisses me off man. Macam #*^#*^_(@*. Today (yesterday) i guess was my unlucky day. I've encountered a few of this jack-asses..two while on my way to class, of which both cars were considerably new cars (judging from the exterior of the car and license plate) one was Proton Wira and the other was Myvi with the former man driver! And while i was on my way back home, one super-dimwit ass drove brought the traffic to a halt on a one lane downhill route!!! THAT WAS PRETTY DANGEROUS man. MEmang babi gila orang tu...almost causing accidents.

Memang ultimate pu&*#&* when i see this kind of road users! NOT only they are fully aware of their driving speed, i reckon they enjoy it with no remorse nor considerations to at least give way to people to overtake them!

KALAU kau iyapun tengah blowjob/beromen/menggelitit dalam tu pun, ketepi la kan kereta tu. give way. I say this, because it's night man, you cant be saying 'no, i am enjoying the scenary' Fuck it, it was really dark. (NOTE: puncak alam route) Nor was the route sandwiched with beautiful mountains, colorful trees on the roadside ke hapa.. There are people who have serious matters, demanding business to get to (like i was, was effin late to class).

DO they realised by driving too slow, they are also endangering other road users? It's equally dangerous to drive to fuckin slow as with too fuckin fast.

OF COURSE i am no way condoning any speed above the speed limit..i mean that's really asking for accidents..contributing to death statistics. BUT come on, driving like a pea-minded tortoise is not helping others as well.

AS SUCH, these people ought to be penalized equally as those fast drivers!

AM reminded by one FRIENDS episodes where Ross got to drive his dad's porche, and in trying to impress Rachel for a drive out in the convertible he ended up only to reveal his real driving skills to Rachel...which was none! Rachel to Ross, "Have you ever heard fifth gear?". Ross ended up got a ticket for driving too slow in a highway and thinking back, i think that law should be made legal here in Malaysia . Road Safety DG DATUK SURET SINGH kena buat kempen "PANDU PERLAHAN PUN BOLEH MAUT DI TENGAH JALAN" atau "SILA LAJU LAGI LABI ATAU ORANG LAIN MATI".

Gone Too Soon..

Above: In his heyday, some of the early images of his newly constructed nose before it went all...umm runny

The picture above needs no introductory. He's more popular worldwide than the Beatles or Elvis, heck even the Pope. He was, IS and forever will be the KING OF POP! Just like the millions out there, i have my fair share of memories watching MJ's on TV and when he finally came to Malaysia way back in the early 1997, i cringed to the thought of watching him performed on stage-live and...I almost went to watched his concert (of course after failing misreably in convincing my eldest sister to bring me along with her, her excuse was because i was not old enough..fyi: i was in 15 years old ) and my sister who bought the most expensive tix and she bought like 6 of them, brought like whoever knows..none of us in the family!! she treated her friends instead..grrrr. can never forgive her for that..pfff. (you can click here for the uploaded vid of his performance in KL when he said, "saya cinta malaysia"-translation: "i love malaysia")

SO he came in 1997. and it was hugggge coverage..everybody in the country went beserk for him. and i remembered my eldest sis telling us the stadium was a sold-out but what was interesting for her she said, of how many Indian fans of MJ in KL that came and dressed like the star, with studded white glove in one hand..his worldly trademark.

I finally had my break. During the new year eve of 1999, in Quality Hotel KL, i had MY closest 'encounter' with the 'star' himself...performing...the ballroom's light was dimmed when 'he' made his entrance...singing.."billie jean". The crowd went crazzzzyy...NOT! I was at the back of the room at that time and couldnt really see 'him' ...there was a huge fuss in the room, giggles too..and then i saw 'him'. OK..so it was not the real MJ! He was not the second best thing even! It was more like extremely super low branded copy of MJ, with skinny frail, protruding belly, very dark skin (i could only see his teeth's reflection under the low lights) and, and, BIG CURLY PONY TAILED WIG...what a.....NIGHTMARE. TO add more insult, he couldnt even do the moonwalk right..what an embarrasing impersonation of the mega star...


Above: Pretty close to the character that just made my new year celeb in 1999 a nightmare..



Now that white glove with the rest of his personal items goes under the hammer for auction (or have been sold). The white glove was put on Ebay at a starting bidding price of $388,000! AND...who is now the proud owner of one of that many white gloves of MJs? His name is Tracy Morgan one of the many Hollywood's has been.

Above: AND...here it is, when he started to make his face look scarily aging look alike to Diana Ross. What were you thinking MJ really...sadd.

HONESTLY, even before his spiralling career back then; with court-cases, world mockery etc. to the point when his death 'resurrected' his name back in the industry and everybooooody starts to claim that they're the biggest fan of MJs in the world when in real fact it was only then they lot did panic attack DVDs/CDs buy of MJs songs/videos/the last concert etc; for I, must confess in my possesion even before that whole charade, i only had TWO of his album that i must proudly confess of which i bought MYSELF with my own pocket money. the two album was HISTORY and his last album INVICIBLE .

HIS songs were all good to hear, that i have many favourites, as with millions out there..BUT some of my fav definitely GHOST, REMEMBER THE TIME, WHO IS IT, MAN IN THE MIRROR, BLACK&WHITE, IN THE CLOSET, ABC, JAM, SCREAM, BEN, DIRTY DIANA....many more....:) I remembered when i had newly bought his last album, i tried to listen to it in my dad's car (it ws the tape version, cant afford CD player back then) my father would asked me to STOP the tape after a few tracks...he said, "Tah apa tah nyanyi, asik ah ah ooh ohh tersedu-sedu jek!" He was commenting on MJs style of singing and lamented it ws not a good performance as you couldnt understand his lyrics, too much drama with the 'aaah', 'oooh'...THAT comment disappointed me. I remembered upon hearing the later remarks from my dad that discouraged me to listen to any MJ songs in his car; i pulled a sulking face! boohoo...DAD didnt approved my choice of songs. I defended to dad, "AYAH, INI MJ we're talking. King of POP!", daddy wasnt amused!

Time passed...and now the KING's Dead..and he indeed gone too soon...in June 2009, the world was shocked by his passing. His death are still mourned by many, including I. I could vividly recall that very morning a friend, Lyza Razak texted me, "MJ's DEAD babe!!!" It was quite early in the morning around 7am..the weather was drizzling, so there was this melancholic settings around me, almost like in agreement to the passing of the King. SADNESS. NUMBNESS. I was still in my confinement period back then, and remembered sharing the news with the rest of my family, all of us was GLUED to tv/internet for updates...


Above: His daughter, Paris and family members, said goodbye during the live broadcasted memorial service. ..Paris,"eversince i was born, daddy has been the best father you can imagined, and i just wanted to say that i love him...so much.."

MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON is dead..and there will be no one, even close to, that can even compares with him! no one can be compared with him! RIP MJ. Always missed. and may justice be served to whoever did involve in causing his death. Dr. Conrad Murray pleaded not guilty and much anticipated trial sets this 28 march. If convicted Murray faces maximum of 4 years in prison..

PS: i wrote this thread in memory of the King, simply because...i wnt to! hell it is my blog..bluergh. nah, i ws listening to his songs/videos..MJs accompanying me throughout the late night studies since..last week. :)

When the earth beneath you......moves & tsunamis rolling in.

Salam.

For two days, the whole world has its focus on Japan. Specifically, near Honshu, miyagi prefecture area. Now, that area was rippled with a fierceful force recorded at 8.9 magnitude and has so far took about 1,500 lives while an estimated 9,500 lives are missing.

2. Although Japan is no stranger to encountering and overcoming natural disasters such as tsunami (the name itself is derived from nihongo) and earthquakes (as the country's geographically sits on the pasific rings of fire); this quake deemed to be the worst that nihon ever seen in 110 years.

3. NOW, if this were to hit other places, no doubt my sympathy goes out the residents affected. However, since this is japan, nihon, nippon..we're talking, now that really make it a different picture for me. It bares more emotional baggage to me, almost like it is my home affected. Ah, but wait. Nihon does feel like a second home. For years i have been fascinated by its culture, language, food and scenic places; it is THE first foreign country i ever stayed in long enough to be called as second home ( i know there are many more out there that have years of experience in japan that may debate about the how justified is a particular period of time to be considered "long enough'..but hey this is my blog is it not?)

Above: Chiaky & Megumi- very nice and friendly almost like a sister to me..younger sister of course. :)

4. And because of that, anything that relates to Japan, i am more interested to learn more although that experince of having walked the soil of Tokyo and its surrounding was 5 years ago and the memories (most) starting to fades.


Above: 7-11 near my dorm. Without a doubt, the most frequently visited konbini (convenient store) of mine with usual take-outs such as onigiri, pokka coffee, sembe, and the daikon-heaven.

5. SO, with this incident, i can't help but to feel i wanted to know more of its updates since there are friends, acquintances, people that i have crossed paths while i was there (2004-2005) and probably could be affected.

6. While i was there, i have experienced earthquakes or as the japanese called it 'jishin'. Most poignant was in particular, around October 2004 when a big earthquakes of Niigata's 7.2 magnitude. I could still recall the day i first felt the tremors of an earthquake. It was around 5pm, and Rina (roomate) and i was lazying our room. Most of us (the foreign students were lazying around ;p ) when it hit us.


Above: Just behind that rainbow painted building, is the dorm speficially for foreign BGU students (what privileged really, clean, roomy, fully-equiped & facilitated). And my room was on the second floor (only room number two's window is visible here) FIY, this was the view taken from our class on 5ft floor in BGU (walking distance to the dorm, very convenient)


7. The books fell off our shelves, and i could feel the sensation as if someone was shaking the whole house. All of us (first timers at quakes) ran like mad, panicking literally; and one friend Erick Peterson (the funny one) was screaming "earthquakes people". He was our warning system.

8. Let me tell you, the experience was scary. The tremors wasn't that bad (as we later found out according to japanese standards)-4.5 magnitude, and this was the reading where i was staying which was in Hongo, Tokyo (quite far from the epicentre).

9. I remembered, my heart was racing as i was running down the stairs, my mind was having this flashes of memory of the faces of my family and people that i care for (you know the typical thing they say when you feel like you're life about to end and your whole life flashes back in front of your eyes). I thought then, 'oh no, I don't want to die in Japan this way'.

10. The funny thing about that, after what seems like a longggg minutes (but in actual fact, the tremor was less than 2 minutes); all of us were standing in the dorm's courtyard and just to be giggled afterwards by our very concern sensei that came to check us out.

10. WHY i say giggled? Because to the nihonjin (japanese) anything below 5 magnitude is a harmless shake baby! 5.0 - 6.5 considered MILD and anything above can be dangerous. AND rule of the thumb to them: they DON'T PANIC, RUN and SCREAM (of course under serious circumstance these rules does not apply! ;p)

11. That exactly explains why there is one old woman or the japanese called 'obasan' literally means aunty; was still very calmly walking her dog when the earth was shaking!!!!!! AND many just continue doing what they're doing with no real panic surge in them i.e. cycling although in a wobbly manner etc. LIFE for the nihonin is NORMAL anytime below 5.0 magnitude quake occur!

12. NOW, fast-forward, the Honshu quake. I could only imagine how devastating it must have been and learning from friends in Tokyo, though there was no tsunamis, but the shake was pretty scary. And if the japanese says SCARY, you bet your socks it is HELLA SCARY incident!! Nothing compared with midget tremors of what the folks in Putrajaya, KL have been fussing about some time ago when some quakes triggered in Indonesia, and some parts of southern Malaysia felt the aftershocks. (typical Malaysian always dramatic! ;p. having said that, our building aren't quake-proof so yeah, we can tolerate the fuss)

13. NOW being the ignorant me, i was never the kind of person who would keep in touch with everyone; but that doesn't mean that i have forgotten about them. I mean, every veins in me wanted to be that super-nice person that keeps in touch with friends and people who have been a great help/cheered up my life be it a brief moment; but i was never abled to be as such. I don't know why. BUT i do know that i REGRET it now.

14. In relation to this incident, i could only wonder the well-beings of those friendly faces that has touched my life during that splendid times i spent in Tokyo. Just left wondering how they are, because except a few namely Sufi Norhany, Mohd Zulhairy, Tomoko Negishi, Yumiko Hakoshima, Kazue Namai, Susan Branz, Lisa Onodera; the rest have no/frozen/terminated FB account to give updates about themselves.


Above: Miki and Moko Chan. The inseparable best friends and very wacky, over-the-top nicest people i have ever met. i miss you guys and good to know you guys are safe. p/s: Wish i can have a meeting soon with you guys just as Rina had, lucky her...demo, okane ga chotto arimasu hehe..

15. I wonder how are my foster family the Ito are doing. Terumi and her sisters, okasan to onisan, daijoubo kana? I wonder about another friendly face Fumiye Hosozawa who lives in Chiba. I wonder about the wonderful 12 girls - juniors of Bunkyo Gakuin University who attended that wonderful 2 weeks of English camp in Karuizawa.

Above: When i think of Teru chan, i am reminded with Boyz 2 Men..as she is one huge fans of the quartet. Teru chan, i hope you are ok over there..

16. I wonder if the ever so kind, Nukada San, the dorm's janitor, was affected by the quakes? Ah, Nukada San, deep in me i ache to see his face again. Although we could never converse in a humanly manner either in Japanese or English ( as he was not proficient in Eigo just as i was not proficient in Nihongo); there was this sense of warmth in him that i ever so miss, almost in a fatherly/grandfatherly love manner. Heck, he filled in the void in me when i was missing home so bad on my birthyday; he cheered me up by treating me and Rina tempura dinner that he claimed he'd cooked, he was the one who would buy the delicious onigiri (rice cake) of many varieties i.e. salmon,crab,egg for breakfast... I really hope he is still alive and well and wish i could see him again..someday.

Above: With the Nukada San....almost teared up when i write about him in the previous paragraphs. I really hope you are doing fine. May Allah keeps you safe.

17. My thoughts are with them and there has never been a single day in my life since i touched down in Narita that i have forgotten the wonderful experiences i had in the country of the rising sun. Nihon gambaraou ne!!!!

Laughter's the best medicine or so they say.......

salam.

Comedy always had this magnetic affect on me eversince i can remember. you know, i'm of one of those softies with a 'ticklish' heart (is there really such a thing? :p)..and such, funny, wa
cky, comic people will surely get my attention. they seem to clicked that 'button' for ease. So much so, over the years, funny guy always have the easy way to interests me, captivates me..and i absolutely adore the sights of Adam Sandler, Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell..(just to name a few) and Saturday Night Live (SNLs), FRIENDS are some of my all-time favorite shows
.
(above) Jimmy Fallon, one of the many person i would want to meet..after Keanu Charles Reeves and Takuya Kimura (also previously wish to date-list..haha yes dreamy i know)

BUT, this is real life is it not? More often than not, we don't end up having the things we would love to have. Funny, humorous guy was never the characterictics in my husband. it's like he almost have no comic bone, cells,veins in him. OK. i am painting an injustice picture of him of being this dead-super-serious guy aren't i? mami aisheteiru you still ayah..;p

To set the record straight en suami do have his fair shair being a comic himself. I would call his sense of humor more like the Brits they say, that have this dry-like comedy sense and when they make a joke, they don't make that face at all. like very stone almost, dead but
dead funny..well, en suami does have his humorous days once in awhile.

POINT i am making, yes i fancy comedian, but not just any comedian. I can't tolerate "low" type of jokes such to say on farts,races,disgusting stuffs i.e. poos, though have to admit, those things can really trigger some laughs easily, anytime. OK, so just a few drops of those in a joke should be alright i guess, BUT if the whole skits consist of poos, farts, and you the audience finds that funny, then there must be some serious problems with that audience.

WITH that, i am making reference to the on-going local comedian talent show called 'RAJA LAWAK'. the show is now in its fifth season (congrats) meaning, despite criti
cs it survived all those years and now on the semi-final weeks (i guess).

OVERALL, i personally think it is a good show. I mean , you can't expect to get wonders li
ke Sandler, Fallon, Ferrell type of stand-up comedian in its finalists. Even those people mentioned didn't start up and become great and discovered instantly. having said that, making jokes is not easy to do. and making it on a weekly basis, in front of live audience is even harder, one can only imagined. even worst when the crowd doesnt appreciate your work and they're not responding to your jokes. that'd....surely hurts. SO in that light, kudos to the finalists.

SO, who are my favorites? Personally, I like the duo from Penang, the solo MAN..the rest to me are just so-so. WHO would i root to be the winner? MAN. simply because he is a solo, and he is talented that is to say, he had been coming up with new character every week rather than the former that undeniably have excellent chemistry between the two and do cracked some wicked jokes. HOWEVER, that particular duo, i reckon will be a hit after the shows. They'll surely get jobs easily because of their 'slamber' approach to comedy and very au naturally ..funny! gosh, i love them all really. can they have two winners this year??

(Above) Balas: They often take the character name of Tom and Jerry. Tom being the skinny guy on the left and Jerry, the one's in stripey shirt. Their skits if in this character is often with wicked, twisted manglish style lingo. Funny as hell. I personally dig the stripey because he's just wacko!!!!

ANYWAYS, they say laughter is the best medicine; when you're happy, one wrinkle less in the face; or always smile puts off the sadness away. Skeptics or believers; scientifically the saying about 'laughter being the best medicine' has been proven to be true. So much so, the professionals have come up with a laugh therapy that to be said effective in combating diseases:

"Laughing is found to lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, increase muscle flexion, and boost immune function by raising levels of infection-fighting T-cells, disease-fighting proteins called Gamma-interferon and B-cells, which produce disease-destroying antibodies. Laughter also triggers the release of endorphins, the body's na
tural painkillers, and produces a general sense of well-being."

As for the concern that laughter can put give away wrinkles, i guess you can take the look at those happy faces in tv life like Aznil Hj Nawawi, who clearly has always been this jovial individual, almost like on prozac-constantly smiling and happy it seems..and look at his face. it is almost like he doesnt age much and still look as young as he was when he first started his career back in the 80s (i know so and can still vividly recall one centerspread magazine photoshot of him standin
g beside a car that my sister had cut-out and paste on her inner cupboard walls! because he was so cute, she said)

TRIVIA: i used to pose (and still sometimes do even today..) with very weird, almost not-sensible, cartoony look whenever i get my picture snap eversince i just a kid because i don't know how to smile and thus figured if i make funny faces people won't notice that i am not good looking and would think "hey look at her she's cute, funny & happy kid"...yeah...i am a comic to myself..

(above) yours truly at the age of 7. evidence of that so-called weird-funny face pose. (^-^)

Wedding Anniversary

Salam.

Today, or rather yesterday (3.3.2011), was a date remembered by everyone of us in the family. It's the day of our parents wedding anniversary. And, this year, marked their 42nd years of togetherness and encounting.

42 years. Now, that is pure commitment. To be able to stay in a relationship that long, takes real commitment, strong will power, a conscious heart and sensible too that eventhough your other half is not that perfect somebody you wished for; he/she will have to do. (let's face it, they say it takes after 5 years in a marriage then you'll truly discover the wholesome truth about your partner and more often than not- not that pretty image(s).

I have yet to come to that. BUT, my wed anniversary, is due in just a few days. Come, next monday (7/3/2011), i'll be in my fourth year of marriage with mr hubby. So, it will take me another year to pass that first iniatial testing phase.

What's amazing to me, is how couples of years of marriage can stand each other for so long? Oh, please don't give me that cliche reason such as "because they LOVE each other".

Because, let's face it. There will come a time in your marriage, then LOVE does tire you down, you get all weary about anything lovey-dovey themes, and it's purely technical or needs to have that someone as your life partner (at least this is my ill-feeling about this contract of love whenever i have spousely quarrel :p )

OK. enough raving. I actually need to get my focus to finishing my presentation that is due in less than 12 hours...unfortunately, no pictures for today's event except a cake-cutting video that i reckon would be too personal for the world wide web to see.

In sum, to mom and dad, "Mak dan Ayah, Selamat Ulangtahun Perkahwinan yang ke 42 tahun. Semoga terus berbahgia selamanya. Amin" Love you both to bits..

Eddy Adika in memory..again.:((

salam.

As you probably notice (by the date of my entries) that i fortnightly update the entries of this blog. Guess that's how it is with someone having a couple of names in the blogsphere + lazybone like me do=seldom updates.

Anyhow, as i was blog-hopping, updating, touching-up here and there (macam la lawa sangat) and yes for this part i blame it largely on the effin slow internet connections in my housing area and yes again blame it all on streamyx because of the recent upgrading to unifi.

SOOOO, i was 'cleaning' my sidebars here, and i accidently clicked to one blog name that i havent clicked for a loooongggggggggggggggggg time. And yes, the owner in titled in this entry of mine. EDDY ADIKA. ALLAHYARHAM EDDY ADIKA.

if you noticed, i did write about his passing previously and posted my final picture with him.

POINT i was making: I make a heart-wrenching blog visit to Eddy's and found his third final entry was filled with words i could associate easily to- with his appreciation dedicated to my name and the same picture i have posted here with him, he had that one too!

IF ONLY i was more aware of his updates back then...:((

AL-FATIHAH EDDY ADIKA
. you will always be remembered.
