I'll Wait for Your Call...

Tension betul dengan sikap manusia yang kurang consideration nih.. Semuanya nak cepat without considering that I don’t serve him/her solely. Hey wait! When I came to think about it, actually I’m answerable to my immediate boss only (who is very considerate by the way). No to them, yang entah siapa-siapa entah nie (and mostly inconsiderate!).

These people, when they need some input, data what-so-ever, all they need to do is to pick up the phone and ask to get this and that from me (sometimes they don’t even know what they want - for God’s sake, please do a little bit of research or ask around!). And they will never fail to end the conversation with “Saya nak ni cepat/segera ye!” Yeah, like I don’t have anything else to do, just wait by the phone to get orders from them!!

I don’t think that this urge to get the info oh-so-badly just come out like that. Kalau sekali dua minta urgent sangat-sangat ok juga, but if it happens everytime, I started to think that this person either has very bad …

Part II - Konsert Jamal & Saleem

Iniler outfit masa pegi concert tue!
The second half of the show was Jamal’s. Being quite disappointed with the first part, I didn’t expect much from this. But Jamal prove me wrong. He took the stage confidently, sang all his hits songs and hit the high notes perfectly! Everything was perfectly right for him that night - nice outfit (walaupun macam baju Michael Jackson zaman Beat-It dulu, lantaklah), he seemed healthy and glowing (Bunga-bunga Cinta dengan Misha Omar kot?), and he even did some improvisations on some of the songs…best! Paling best in this session they dropped out the jejaka ballet tu!

Jamal also sang a blues song, “Help Me Make It through The Night” which made us screamed “Yes! Yes!” Hehehe… He really sent the shivered down to our spine with “Kekasih Awal dan Akhir”, “Seniman Menangis” and many more. And yes, his version of “Gerhana Cinta Luka" (originally sang) by Saleem was superb!

The guest artistes’ line up for that concert also was very interesting. …

Part I - Konsert Jamal & Saleem

My Mom and I had a great time at KL Convention Centre last Saturday, all thanks to my brother who had been very generous to buy us tickets to see Jamal Abdillah and Saleem’s concert.

Who can say no to an opportunity to dress up and be entertained, right? So I got myself a wrap-around shirt from East India and a pair of shiny-black wedges (that I’d been eyeing for weeks) just for the occasion. Talk about finding all the excuses to shop! I’m all with you in this LIN! Peduli ler kalau orang kata hobby kita nie macam Imelda Marcos, kan?

Even though I'm not a huge fan of those two guys, I have to admit that I’m a sucker for late 70’s to early 90’s songs- Jay Jay, Francesca, Sudirman, Alleycats, Sohaimi Meor Hassan, and many more. I love their songs because the singers had this deep penghayatan lagu and the lyrics memang mendalam especially those written by Habsah Hassan. More over, it was somewhat nostalgic to hear the songs that we grew up with (dah tua rupanya!)

So that night, the momen…

Pelik tapi Benar.......

I was attending this international course – it seems that DBP has done a great job, as the course was conducted in Bahasa Melayu! It was amazing to see the participants from Europe and other Asian countries listen attentively to the lecture. Pelik tapi benar.
Tiba-tiba terdengar emcee buat pengumuman yang VVIP hampir tiba untuk upacara perasmian. Masalahnya tempat laluan masuk tu penuh sesak dengan budak-budak yang tak tau dari mana datangnya (Bukan ke nie program ala2 korporat?). Walaupun ini bukanlah program ofis aKu bekerja, dengan rasa tanggungjawab dan semangat sebagai ‘usherette’ pencen, aKu pun suruh ler budak-budak tu ke tepi untuk beri laluan. Dah gitu, bertempiaran ler budak-budak tu, kesian...
The organizer was nowhere to be seen. Teruk betul. So dengan rasa tanggungjawab, aKu pun keluar untuk sambut tu. BTW he’s one of the top leaders in this country, but as I tend to keep this blog as neutral ~ apolitical, let’s call him Mr. MP je.

I could tell that he was glad to see someon…

The Fact of Being Young, Single and Independent..

I have been ‘in-and-out’ of relationships for a couple of times now, but this time around, I’m glad to report here that I couldn’t feel any better!

It’s not that I’d been in a bad relationship or what, it’s just now I’m getting more confident in what I want in a relationship and to what extent that I can tolerate with the differences.

Of course I got my share of heart breaks and all, but now that I’m older and hopefully wiser (!) I think being caught up in a relationship(s) that doesn’t work is actually an opportunity for us to discover what we actually want and expect in a relationship. It is sort of preparation for us to have a better relationship in the future.

Tom Robbins, an American novelist describes these relationship issues beautifully as follows:

“When we are in complete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after being in a relationship and we still find that we’re still unfulfilled, we move to another relationship until we came into realization that while …


Last Saturday afternoon, I got a call from my bestie, HA who informed me that one of our tutors during uni days was killed in an accident in Tapah.

Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing)."( سورة آل عمران , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #185 The news was in today's newspaper. The printed version came with a picture of him. Here is the full news as in Harian Metro:
Pensyarah UPM maut

Geram betul!!!!

I just hate it when people blame others for things that happen. Memang pangkah betul!!Apatah lagi when I had gave deep and careful thought about this matter. So when I got the SMS, I was startled. Thought of replying back, but then it came to me "Why should I bother?"

So I just kept silent, and let this kind of people to go on with their shallow minds. It will be a waste of time and energy for me to explain myself to people like this. I believe that the person who likes you doesn’t need you to explain yourself and the person who doesn’t like you doesn’t believe it anyway!!! So, let them be...!
