  • www.tips-fb.com Si Pemerhati

    Friday, July 30, 2010
    Juraian air hujan menitis laju, seakan mahu membasuh dunia ini yang berpalit pelbagai kekalutan manusia. Masing- masing punyai agenda tersendiri. Disebalik senyuman, tersimpan duka, disebalik raut wajah yang tenang, terselit badai yang meruntun jiwa.

    Mataku liar memerhati manusia-manusia ini. Ada yang berjalan laju, ada yang berjalan perlahan, bersendiri atau berteman, dan ada juga yang termangu-mangu, seolah-olah memikirkan sesuatu. Apalah agaknya yang ada di benak kepala mereka. Cerita hidup mereka yang berbeza-beza, kekal menjadi satu misteri buat ku yang hanya duduk menjadi pemerhati.

    Lihat orang tua itu, mengemis dalam kebasahan, entah apa ceritanya. Aku cuba bersangka baik, tapi terdetik juga di hati, mengapa dia jadi begitu. Tiadakah anak cucu dapat menbantu, menjaganya? Mungkin waktu mudanya dihabiskan dengan bersuka-suka sehingga alpa akan apa yang penting, hingga apabila tua, begitu daif dan hina hidupnya. Tapi mungkin juga dia seorang yang baik, tapi Allah turunkan ujian sehingga sebegitu rupa, untuk menjadikannya salah seorang penghuni syurga yang mulia.

    Ah!! apa yang aku tahu. Sebaiknya yang diperhati adalah diri sendiri.

    Source of picture for wikipedia

    Jangan tak tahu, hehekss.. last Tuesday kitorang beli ikan Koi pulak. Rase bes plak tengok ikan koi, cantik kan?
    Sebab baru nak mule, kitorang beli 3 ekor Japanese Koi dan 3 ekor butterfly Koi, the reason? because buy 2, free 1 and of course, butterfly koi much cheaper than Japanese Koi. Mahal juge ikan Japanese Koi nie berbanding butterfly koi (RM18 vs RM4??)
    Size masih anak2 laei. Sebesar ikan emas itu. Nanti harap dorang dapat membesar dengan sihat dan cantik. Jenis Japanese Koi yang dibeli, berdasarkan gambar kat atas tu ialah Kohaku, Sanke dan Yamabuki Ogon.
    so skang nie, perkara pertama yang dibuat pas masuk umah adalah, lepak depan aquarium sambil tengok ikan makan dan berenang2. :)

    www.tips-fb.com Sleepness Night

    Last night I had a nigtmare. It's includes name and writing on tree bark, guns and bullets and amputation and people dying. It was so terrible that it woke me up. As I woke up, I was greeted by mosquitos bite. Oh, my darling forget to turn on the mosquito's repellent. I switch it on, and return to bed, only having stomach cramp. I put some 'minyak kayu putih' and then force myself to sleep again.

    Today, opposite to what I usually feel if I am not getting enough sleep, I actually feel refreshed! Just hope the rest of the day would go well. :)

    Wednesday, July 28, 2010
    He wait for the tree to grow. He watered the seed everyday. Now, he could see a tiny sprout growing from beneath the soil. His heart noted the feeling of joy.

    Everyday he went to the field, to see whether the plant is growing. It has been four days he has been going through the same routine, yet the sprout seem to grow no more.
    He was sad. Would the sprout grow to be the tallest tree he ever see, like he always hope for? Or it would stop growing, die along the way? He has nurtured it with love and patience, but he cannot be sure of it survival. Yes, he feels sad now.

    The people who was passing by gave him a misunderstood look. They jeer at the sight of him. Crazy young boy. Attending to the plant as if it worth his whole day. To their eyes, what they see is an ugly, five foot tall young boy, with a stupid messy black hair, wearing an old, dirty t-shirt, sitting each day on the same dirty spot, looking towards the earth.

    He knew they don't understand his sentiment. He put all his hope to that tiny little seed. The old man had promise to him, the seed would grow to a tall tree, and bring him all the fortune of the world to his knee.

    He traded his goat for that seed of dream, and wishfully hope, he will be rewarded handsomely.
    Yet, nothing has happen out of ordinary. And he keep on waiting. Painfully waiting for his dream reality.

    Hari Selasa lepas, aku nyaris2 langgar sorang budak cina, berbasikal, nak melintas dekat bulatan. Kire shock abess gak aa..tetibe muncul basikal kat tengah jalan time aku belok masuk simpang daripada bulatan. Terus buat emergency break... seb baek budak tu hanya langgar sisi badan keta jek... dan seb baek juge tiada kecederaan pada dia atao kereta aku... aish... bahaye betul melintas betul2 jalan keluar bulatan..

    Disebabkan ni la pengalaman aku nyaris2 nak langgar budak.. berderau darah sekejap, terus menggeletar satu badan.. kus semangat. Aku sambung perjalanan terus balik rumah. Sampai jek, terus terjelepuk kat sofa... bukak tv.. dan pejam mata.. cuba nak redakan raser gemuruh.

    Tunggu punye tunggu, darling aku akhirnye balek gak umah. Apa laei ... bukak cerita lah. Then bagitao haritu aku xmasak.. so darling ajak makan luar jer.

    Kami g makan kat Pak Hailam, dan aku mengorder Chicken Porridge kegemaranku. Lepas habis licin makan, fikiran pun dah tenang, perut pun dah kenyang. On the way keluar, ternampak mesin timbang berat. Ala, yg canggih tu, siap leh amek blood pressure, measure body fat, ketinggian dan berat. Aku pun saje2 lah try, almaklumlah, salu nampak, tapi xpenah cuba pun.

    Terkejut laei skali dengan berat badan ku yang bertambah laei 3kg. adeiii..apalah... badan nie napelah makin lama makin naek... then tengok body fat, cam nak pengsan, kena kurangkan half plak tu dr bacaan baru normal, blood pressure plak rendah, 92/60... patutlah badan terasa sangat lemah.

    Alahai... penat betul harituh... nasib baik makan tetap SEDAP :)

    www.tips-fb.com The Long White Corridor

    Tuesday, July 20, 2010
    As I strode along this walkway, I notice the whitish colour that paint both of its wall. The walkway is long, so far ahead, and I could see a tiny figure ahead, becoming more bigger and clearer as the distance between us become nearer. I soon recognize the figure as a man. The man pass by me and give me a friendly smile.
    I am glad that the hallway is long and straight. I don't need to worry or afraid of what lurking behind the corner, because there is none.
    As I continue walking, passing more doors and people, some walking behind me, some walking in front of me and others just walking towards me. Then they took off, dissappear behind the door, while some continue to reach their destination.
    Yes, at some point, we have take our leave. Saying goodbye is difficult, but each of us has different road to journey on, for the sake of pursuing our purpose. This is where I am going to take off.
    Until we meet again on this long white corridor, I bid your farewell.

    www.tips-fb.com Pak Li Kopitiam

    Monday, July 19, 2010
    After the Bon Dance, we felt very hungry, so we decided to look for Pak Li Kopitiam in Sect 7. Unfortunately, because the place is really near to the I-City, we stuck for a while in the traffic. So, based on the GPS, finally we arrived at the place. There are lot of people too. All the table almost full, luckily, as we entered, there's an empty table, nicely fit the four of us.

    So Adlina and Fauzi ordered the infamous Pak Li nasi lemak, with strawberry smoothie for adlina and teh ais for fauzi. My darl ordered Golden Fried Rice, with tiramisu drink and an ice tea, and as for me, the Hainan Chicken Chop which I savour greatly.. yummy. with a soursop drink, ice tea and plain ice water (was very thirsty prior to dancing :p)

    The sauce for the chicken chop was really nice. It taste sweeet and sour, really to my liking. The only down part is the quantity. if only they pour more of it to the chicken :p

    The chicken was coated with a crispy flour, with a nice flavouring, not too salty nor tasteles.. and the chicken meat taste fresh and juicy. I might order it again if I go there. No wonder a lot of people like to go to Pak Li Kopitiam.

    And yes, the price is reasonable too.. we paid rm50++ for all the food and drinks.

    And here is the picture of my Hainan Chicken Chop.


    www.tips-fb.com Bon Odori Festival - 17July2010

    Bon Odari Festival is a Japanese Tradisional Dance. It is celebrated as a reminder of the gratitude one should feel toward one's ancestors.

    Bon Odori originates from the story of Maha Maudgalyayana (Mokuren), a disciple of the Buddha, who used his supernatural powers to look upon his deceased mother. He discovered she had fallen into the Realm of Hungry Ghosts and was suffering.[3] Greatly disturbed, he went to the Buddha and asked how he could release his mother from this realm. Buddha instructed him to make offerings to the many Buddhist monks who had just completed their summer retreat, on the fifteenth day of the seventh month. The disciple did this and, thus, saw his mother's release. He also began to see the true nature of her past unselfishness and the many sacrifices that she had made for him. The disciple, happy because of his mother's release and grateful for his mother's kindness, danced with joy. From this dance of joy comes Bon Odori or "Bon Dance", a time in which ancestors and their sacrifices are remembered and appreciated.

    In Malaysia, Bon Odori Festivals are also celebrated every year in Penang and at the Matsushita Corp Stadium in Shah Alam, Selangor. This celebration, which is a major attraction for the state of Selangor, is the brain child of the Japanese Expatriate & Immigrant's Society in Malaysia. In comparison to the celebrations in Japan, the festival is celebrated on a much smaller scale in Penang and Selangor, and is less associated with Buddhism and more with Japanese culture. Held mainly to expose locals to a part of Japanese culture, the festival provides the experience of a variety of Japanese food & drinks, art and dance.

    The tourism Selangor has a website dedicated to inform the public on the updates of the upcoming Bon Odori. It also states certain rules for people to participate in such as no high-heels in the dancing field, strictly no smoking for designated areas, wear nothing impolite or offensive and also no cosplaying.[
    (source wikipedia)

    Okay, enough with the history lesson. So as stated above, I was lucky enough to be able to join in the festival which happen last Saturday. Thanks to Adlina for asking me to go with her. So, we when there at about 6pm, and of course, finding a parking is really hard. We have to park very far, at the cemetery area, then walking back to the Matsushita Sport Complex.

    As we entered, we are greeted by huge crowds. Some are wearing very lovely Kimonos and yukatas. I felt as if I'm in Japan, except of course, most of them are chinese, not the real Japanese.

    At first, we just observed people and enjoying the traditional Japanese Song. Later on, we join in the crowd to dance. It was very fun. The dance are easy to follow and to get lots of people dancing to the same tune, following the same dance, it's just beautiful. It's truly a good example of unity and to experience this in Malaysia, just seem so 1Malaysia.

    Below are some picture taken at the event. Enjoy!!

















    www.tips-fb.com Remember Love

    Friday, July 16, 2010
    Remember the joy you felt when you first fall in love. You heart goes boom..boom... and you feel like flying.

    High school puppy love. Those were the time that you think you know everything about love. I remember feeling like wanting to faint each time I saw him. Soon enough we realize.. it was not love, it just a crush.

    Then, I envy seeing my friend being so in love, and foolishly believe that I was cursed in love. I was quite demanding on how a guy should treat me. I want a nice guy but not too goody too shoe... a bad boy but not that kind that I can't bring home to meet my parent or drag me into thing I regret later... I meet a lot of people, still it was very difficult.

    I don't know why at that time, people whom I like doesn't share that mutual feeling, and people whom I would like to avoid, keep on chasing and waiting for me, and make me feel like I am a freak magnet, an ice queen, a stone heart woman.

    There's a time when I feel like I wanna give up. I can marry anyone, I thought, because love can be instill. Marriage is about tolerant, if we can tolerate each other , of course we can live under one roof.

    Then, like any other modern fairy tale. I met him. He totally change my life. We have our differences, and we argued a lot. I almost give up on him also. But God know best. He gave me a partner who could tolerate me, understand me, love me despite of who I am, what I've done, oversees my weaknesses, and always be there even when I acted harshly.

    Being blissfully married, I don't feel I am being cursed anymore.. nor envy other who share the same fortune as me.

    Thank God. I finally find the true meaning of love... and my true love form is you, my husband.

    www.tips-fb.com I'm Afraid

    I am afraid that I would disturb him
    I am afraid that she would be angry
    I am afraid that I am not capable


    How many time in our life that we use that terms ..
    Me myself, I know I used it for several occasions already, sometimes almost daily..

    Let say people asked you to volunteer doing something, I am sure that the nervousness that soon enough translate to the "I am afraid" statement would be blurted out.

    I don't want to be afraid anymore. We are too concerns about how other perceived us, that several times we let go of the opportunity. We hide behind the "I am afraid" statement. We gotta be more agresive to pursue our own well-being.

    So next time, when you are stop by, " I am afraid", try to push it away, and just go for it.. of course, in a positive manner, we don't want to deal with obviously negative circumstances.. right?

    www.tips-fb.com When We Speak the Same Language

    Wednesday, July 14, 2010
    We enjoy the same music,
    Love the same movie,
    savour the same taste for food,
    and we enjoy each other companionship

    We finish each other sentence,
    We always know what the other one is thinking,
    We fight the same argument,
    and we reconcile for the same reason...

    Yet,
    what make us the same,
    is bringing us apart,
    maybe the same is the big differences for us,
    we claim to be one,
    by speaking the same language,
    the truth is...
    we are two of the same kind,
    and the room isn't big enough for both of us...

    www.tips-fb.com Of Uncertainty

    Tuesday, July 13, 2010
    Of course I'm certain...
    I am certain that the sky would remains blue tomorrow...
    I am certain that black would always be the colour of night...
    yes, of course I am certain that as long as I lived, I'll be breathing air.

    I am certainly happy when I receive that two sentences long compliment,
    I am certainly sad to receive that one word of annoying accusation,
    I'm sure that I would be certainly please to see the one I love, everyday...

    But..
    I can't be certain if I am still here tomorrow,
    I can't be certain that all I have now will still be mine in the end,
    I can't be certain that light would illuminate the darkness forever..

    I know I can be certain of one more thing....
    I certainly don't want my mind, lingering on the uncertainty.
