You do, don't you?

This evening, one of my best 'ah so' friend and I went to a book fair at Cheras where they sell books as lowest as MYR3. And this was my second visit after I went there last night, accidentally, while looking for new washing machine.

My now ex-housemate took back his washing machine. Sob...sob...

Anyway, my friend and I share the same niche which is we're crazy for books, and by that I mean cheap books like this fair - but we admit, it's hard to manage to read them all in a year or two. In practical, we're like building sebuah kutub khanah like what my eldest sister said (or in worse case scenario *mine* in plastic bags under the bed.) and God knows what to expect for people like me.

The passion is more on the spirit of buying the books themselves rather than to read them. And knowing it, I just set my date for another book fair which will happen next two weeks. Cli-max!

Anyway, saya berjaya mengawal nafsu saya malam ni (don't ever think out of the box.) Saya beli tiga buah buku saja and all of them are non-fictional. Alhamdulillah , I'm blessed. Haha.

My friend bought more than 10. Crap!

God will bless her.

After making her payment, I volunteered myself to carry her things. Gentleman as I proclaimed myself, very deep down in my heart.

She said, "you don't mind?"

So I said "Yes -"

"Yes, you mind." She joked and I laughed and made a poker face because I was thinking back so hard about my answer.

No.

Practically, it's impossible for you to make a poker face while laughing. You will end up be weird like Hitler's moustache.

The first issue I want to raise here is her full question should be: "You don't mind, do you?"

Which will easily help me to answer the question:
"Yes, I do mind."
"Yes, I don't mind."
"No, I do mind."
"No, I don't mind."

Actually no.

Clueless people like me have this disability of answering such type of question. I may come up with four different answers for this. I mean you won't know whether the yes or no is the answer for which questions - the do or the don't. So that has made me ponder a lot while at the same time having this weird nonsense face.

I hate such question.

The Funny Run Marathon

Which is supposed to be a MyCAT Fun Run Marathon... For the fun *size* people like me. Hahaha...

I only managed to join it halfway as I merely reached the point at 8.35 am. I thought it was very near to Bukit Jalil Stadium but no. I've walked for more than 3 km, following the 'trail' of the 10 km runners. While I was searching for the starting point blindly, someone called me "woi!"

and it was my colleague. "Jom lah lari... Lari je! Mana baju awak?!"

"Kak, how long have you been running?"

"About seven minutes. Cepatlah bukak baju awak... Tukar."

Gila nak tukar baju kat tengah-tengah track. Oh, forgot to tell you. I wasn't wearing the official t-shirt for the marathon sebab kalau lambat sampai tak malu sangat kan. Hahaha...

"Dah berapa jauh berlari ni?"

"One km... and half"

What??? Seven minutes for one km and half. And that's halfway already. The Fun Run Marathon track is only three km. Sekejap betul.

Anyway, I followed my colleague and we ran and ran for about four minutes, then I stopped. Sebab penat haha...

She ran before me, leaving me hopelessly. I could see her from far before she lost from my sight. God, I couldn't believe that she dare to leave me.

I hurted my toes because I wore smaller-sized trainers. If I kept wearing this shoes for running, I'm pretty sure the old Chinese ladies during the great dynasty would be jealous of me.

Anyhow, I managed to find the ending point but tak berani nak masuk the line sebab I didn't wear the official shirt for the marathon. So I used the alternative track, just good enough to see the ending point.

And I saw that all the participants yang finished the marathon got a big pack of Tiger Biskut Susu.

Biskut Susu sedap tapi nak minta malu walaupun sebagai peserta, ada hak nak minta Biskut Susu tu. Tapi sebab malu nak buat camne kan. Haha.

Okay, that's all for now. I know my ending is a total crap. Hahaha. I'm going to Astro Gempak now.

Ciao.

Tema Baju Raya: Bugs Bunnies printed

This year of Raya I decided to wear something different. Which is vair vair unlikely me. Macam "Eh, ni Syahmi ke? Kenapa tiba-tiba pakai macam ni? Kenapa dah berubah? Kenapa makin sengal?"

Shut up. Tadaa...



Bugs and bunnies (no pun intended)

Different brands and types of shirt but likely the same colours i.e. white and navy blue. Kali ni saya dah berazam untuk jaga betul-betul pakaian warna putih. Dan next time bila shopping untuk pakaian lagi saya nak cari printed clothes macam ni lagilah. Rasa macam cantik pulak bila tengok orang pakai.

Oh, kena ingatkan diri sendiri baju Melayu kena beli kat Mydin Isnin atau Selasa nanti. Hehehe.

Good Day, Mate! - Day 1 (Part 1)

Hola, amigos. Yamseng!

Yamseng kepala otak kau. Inikan bulan Ramadhan. Haa... jemput. Jemput. Makan kurma tu lebih sikit.

*intro yang sangat bedebah*

Well, anyway, back to the story. We reached Tullamarine Airport around 7:50AM. So it took about almost eight hours to get from Malaysia to Australia. Lepas keluar dari perut kapal terbang tu we all walked along the tunnel until we were greeted by the local custom officer at the entrance.

Actually not.

She didn't greeted us like "Hi, welcome to Tullamarine Airport. Enjoy your day here." She was actually standing there to examine the passengers and see if there were any suspects.

But it was my damn fault all the way long *I hate me for being me, you know*

Because I looked at her like LOOKED at her macam minta attention. It's like "Hey lady, please looked at me back. I'm an attention seeker and I'm from Malaysia. Read my lips: AT-TEN-TION SEE-KAH. You hear me?!"

Ambik ko, sekali dia perasan saya pandang dia, terus dia panggil and kena soal siasat. Putus urat sekejap. Hahaha.

She asked us so many things like what we're doing there, how long we would be there, tinggal kat mana nanti, bilik ada berapa, muat ke tak. I was so lucky that I knew such questions will be asked because Australians are very particulars about this and Akak Besa' has told me earlier. We were not supposed to stay with my sister because it is HER house. Kalau nak jumpa dia boleh jumpa kat tempat lain like dekat park or club or anywhere as long as not at home. And let say kalau ada dua bilik je dalam satu rumah, the family members are not allowed to be more than three. Lebih kurang macam tu. Sebab budaya kat sana mementingkan privasi. Even antara famili sendiri pun. Sebab tu saya mentioned awal tadi yang we're not supposed to stay at my sister house. So saya tipu here and there.

Saya perasan all the other passengers elok je went away to the checking counter. Famili kitorang je yang stranded kena tahan dengan that local custom officer. Susah betul kalau ada dalam satu group tu ada orang nerd bermasalah macam aku ni. Hahaha.

So we proceeded to the checking counter but in the middle we stop untuk ambil gambar sebab ada spot yang yang menarik. Again, kena tahan lagi dengan  officer yang sama sebab we were supposed not to take picture in the free tax area. Perempuan ni dah macam followed saya all the way long from behind and perhatikan saya. She asked me to delete all the pictures taken there before she went away. Awkward betul masa tu. Oh my, malu tahap siput sedut dah ni.

At the luggage checking counter, I would say it was quite smooth. Walaupun Mak ada bawa kuah kacang kering, saya bawa sos dan kicap, Kak Yong bawa mi segera and tat nenas, semuanya passed. Alhamdulillah. My brother said it all depends on the person in charge. Kalau okay, then okay lah. It just that dairy and egg products yang memang tak boleh bawa masuk (See, I've to lie about the ingredients of the tat nenas).

Dan akhirnya... Jeng! Jeng! Jeng! Kami lepas! Actually this was the part I was most afraid of. Sebab takut kena tangkap sebab bawa kuih raya yang mengandungi telur. Kalau masuk jail sebab bawa dadah kira up la sikit kan, nampak la macho sikit. Tapi sebab dah level noob, maka takat bawa telur pun dah boleh jadi reason masuk lokap. Hahaha.

Okay, see you next time for Day 1 part two!

Good Day, Mate! - Departure Day

Okey, marilah kita melupakan perkara yang lama sekejap... huhu.

On the departure day, I was very busy. Tengahari sempat lagi jumpa colleague kat office for something and then rushed to apply for Mak's travelling insurance in the afternoon. You can apply it from AXA via online. I didn't survey for other companies but I think this one was cheap enough which costed less than MYR20.00 per individual with basic cover and I'm not sure how much it costs for a group. I just bought for Mak since I already covered by takaful and my brother in law already applied for his family.

Oh, not to forget, at 4.00PM I still hadn't packed all my clothing yet. Semua baju saya longgokkan dalam plastik Mydin sekali dengan kicap, sos, dan bihun yang Akak Besa' pesan. Mak yang bawa bagasi kosong saya dari kampung. Jadi semua orang akan berkumpul dekat rumah Kak Yong nanti which takes only seven minutes from my house.

Tapi pukul 5.00PM lebih baru saya sampai sebab singgah kat Tesco dulu untuk beli penimbang. Masa tu mak memang membebel gila sebab saya tak sampai-sampai lagi. Dah la masa tu hujan.

So here we went, pukul 6.00PM tepat kami bertolak.

And the most unacceptable thing I did was I think that our departure is at 11.45PM.

Wrong, Syahmi! Wrong!

Sekali lagi kena bebel sebab salah timing. Hahaha... It was at 10.30PM actually.

Lucky we reached LCCT at 7.00PM and we self-checked in there. Easy meezy.

I was a bit nervous when we reached at the custom examination counter since it was first time. Kelam kabut juga. And then suddenly, whe we passed the boarding room, I heard an announcement "Penerbangan ke Melbourne akan bergerak sebentar lagi."

Hell, I was so panic at that time, kesian sebab Mak pun terpaksa lari-lari juga. And I push the door entrance and did some 'just like a boss' style. Alah, you know, yang tolak dua-dua daun pintu guna dua belah tangan serentak tu.

Dan kemudian kami sekeluarga terus berlari-lari anak ke tengah-tengah lapangan terbang untuk mengejar kapal terbang ke Melbourne itu dan saya mendapati ada seorang staf di tengah-tengah sana lalu saya bertanyakan kat dia, "Has the Melbourne flight departed yet?"

"Hah?? Cepat, dik. Cepat! Kapal terbang dah bergerak tu!" Muka pakcik tu sama gelabah macam saya. Cis!Cis!

And suddenly came this guy which I think the head officer in-charge and he said, "Ni siapa bagi diorang lepas ni?!"

Oh, man! Bagi lepas?! Like... 'bagi lepas?!'

What, are we kangaroos?

Dan sebenarnya flight yang tengah berlepas tu pergi ke Gold Coast instead of Melbourne. -_-"

So the officer bawa kitorang balik ke boarding room. Perghh...malu gilo time tu. Dah la kat boarding tu penuh dengan orang yang start dari awal, started from we rushed from the custom counter, berlari-lari anak dan tolak daun pintu tu *like a boss* and then kena halau balik ke boarding room and doing the walk-of-shame along the aisle, they had seen all of these. Oh my, malu macam berjalan naked di khalayak ramai....sob sob.

Yes, I noticed a group of Caucasians laughing at us. So kesimpulannya, lawak ini memang sangat mudah difahami dan diterima sampai ke tahap antarabangsa. Lawak oleh keluarga Abdul Rani. Cis! Cis!

 Sigh, I still have this trauma... and that Caucasians' laugh... Ahh!

Well, anyway, to my defence, ni semua salah announcement. I mean, how long is 'sebentar lagi' would be?

Again, saya dibebelkan lagi. Dah la duduk dekat dengan abang and kakak kastam. I'm pretty sure they overheard this. Even they had been warned by that head officer sebab tak guard dekat entrance ke lapangan terbang tu. Sekapal la kita.

Nasib baik kakak tu sporting siap cakap "Takpe, dik. Orang first time memang camtu."

Haha. -_-"

After less than half an hour baru the entrance opened.

Bila masuk dalam kapal terbang, wah, macam dalam keretapi je. Haha. Adoi, what la to expect when you opted for an economy package. But the stewardesses, I admit, were very beautiful.

In the airplane, nothing much that I did but I saw a very spectacular view of lightning from the higher level, above the clouds. Masa tu hujan and banyak kilat but I felt safe somehow. Subhanallah, vair vair interesting.

I was sleeping most of the time. Kak Yong, on the other hand, tak tidur langsung sebab takut. She said lepas ni tak nak pergi oversea dah kalau duduk dalam kapal terbang lebih dari lapan jam. Okey, Kak Yong, lepas ni kita bercuti kat Segambut je. Set?

Anyway, since we didn't pre-order the meals, we'd to buy them with the price of harga barang di langit. A Maggi cup costs MYR6.00 whilst a regular size bottle of mineral water costs MYR4.00. Now you see how rich our beloved Fernandes can be?

Oh ya, apart from all these, I learned a new thing about praying. We can do khuf when travelling. It is a simplified way of ablution. I'll make a special entry for this and macam mana nak sembahyang kat negara orang bukan islam later.

Till then, ciao.

So She's Taken

Early this week I had a conversation with S. She was F's best friend during our technical program years ago and now still is. As I still cannot forget about F, I asked S and confirmed whether F's taken or not but she also couldn't assure.

Until today.

Somehow S had a conversation with F and asked her on behalf of me recently.

Yeay! F gave the answer at last. And yes, it's not a good one - at least for me. She admitted that she's taken by a guy. I should have a gut for it. So part of my heart feels a bit relief right now because I knew the truth but the other part feels the pain... of becoming the third wheel.

The second truth revealed - S told me that she also had (or still has??) a feeling for me but I was too late. I mean we... We met when she's already with that guy.

F cakap dia tak nak beri harapan kepada saya. Semuanya atas izin dan jodoh dari Tuhan. So, I don't know what to say any more. It's just hard to find someone like her, which I've waited for so long ago, for the past six years.

I knew up there, God is still planning the best for me.

Oh, how I wish I would be married before 32.

When I'm awfully low

I'm feeling like to have a dance partner.

Or in a worse case scenario, a partner-in-crime.


The Way You Look Tonight was originally sung by Frank Sinatra. Michael Buble made a cover of this song but I prefer Tony Bennett's the most.

Good Day, Mate! - Months and Days Before

Okay, so here we're again. Baru nak sambung cerita balik sebab sebelum ni takde inspirasi nak menulis. Ceewah.

So, actually how it was planned? Tetiba je pergi Melbourne. Well, it was Mak's intention of course since she likes travelling. But since then, Mak can't go anyway far from the dialysis centre sebab Mak ada masalah buah pinggang. So everywhere she wants to go is limited.


Early 2012
Akak Besa' (please read this as Besar with an Utara slang and I don't know why she got that name) went back to Malaysia, Mak tanya macam-macam about Australia. Since she looked so eager and keen so my big sister got this idea about bringing Mak to visit her later. Pity her since Ayah is not the type yang suka pergi travelling, so Akak asked me whether I could bring her to Melbourne together.

At first, Akak Besa' asked me to go with Abang Besa' (it sounds like a rap, haha), my elder brother together with his family sebab they all also planned to go to visit Perth, where my nephew studies. They planned to go next year and waited for winter but I insisted to go during spring which  is around October together with Mak alone. With Mak's condition, I'm afraid if anything bad happen. And I don't like winter. Spring would be better since Mak likes flowers so much and I like to eat lots and lots of fruits.

But I think my sister wouldn't trust me that I've to wait for my brother decision. Nasiblah kau, Syahmi. Siapa suruh berperangai macam budak-budak. Dah orang tak percaya dengan keputusan kau. Anyway, I'm get used to it, so let's just wait.

End of 2012
I received a call from Akak Besa' which suddenly she changed her mind and asked me not to wait for Abang Besa' because rasa macam lambat sangat pula.

Sudah kukatakan, Labu...

Anyway, October has passed, so I just checked for next year punya schedule and matched with the Australia's calendar and with the AirAsia ticket promotion. Sikit betul Australia punya public holidays. So the nearest public holiday is the Queen's Birthday in June. Which is winter time. Blergghhh.

So I booked two tickets.

Later, Akak Besa' called me again suggesting that Kak Yong, our eldest sister should join us. She and the other siblings would pay for her expenses - alone. Sebab Kak Yong dah banyak berjasa dengan adik-adik dia sepuluh orang ni so this is the time we treat her. I didn't mind about this but, seriously, alone?

I knew it never can happen! She got her kids. Of course the kids were eager to go too.

Again, they didn't hear me.

Why? Why? Why they hardly listened to me?

Okey, kenapa tiba-tiba penulisan ni berbaur amarah dan lepas geram? Haha

Anyway, back to the story, yes, the kids and the husband were going too - with their own pocket money. I was happy actually because the more the members the merrier this trip would be.


May 2013
I bought this Samsung smart camera just for this vacation. Yes, you can edit the picture right through this camera and it has WiFi and a small front LCD screen for cam-whoring.

Tadaa!



I got a student discount for this item. Which I never think I would get a student price because I forgot to shave my goatee and moustache. Oh, okay! Maybe because I was wearing my hipster t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans and that SAG sling bag.

Oh dear, thinking back how cool I was at that time *usap-usap dagu*

My old student life...

Anyway, it will be an anti climax entry since I want to stop writing now. I feel tired and sleepy (and want to dream about my ideal cool student life back). So we'll continue the story later.

Ciao babeh.

I'm going to have a late lunch now. Bye!

Latest GE Result 0009 HR

You know you should listen to both parties to get the real situations.

But when it comes to the General Election result...

From page 1malaysia.com.my



From page MalaysiaKini


And lastly from my nephew's personal Twitter,



Tolong jangan merunsingkan saya boleh tak? Mana satu yang boleh percaya ni?



But I ROFLed very hard when this Shahfeeq Zainudin commenting "yg terkini..rosmah kekal bini najib..sekian" and he got 147 likes.

You've make my day. Hahaha.

When determination defeats a defect

I bought this SAG sling bag at Masjid India end of last year with only MYR15.00. Tali pada sling bag tu putus beberapa bulan lepas tapi sayang nak buang beg tu sebab masih boleh pakai lagi sebenarnya. Tapi nak sambung dan jahit sendiri saya memang tak pandai. Nak mengharapkan isteri yang tolong jahitkan, isteri pun takde lagi sob...sob... Dah berhabuk sangat beg ni saya letak macam tu saja.

But still... with a little bit of creativity *baru sekarang dapat idea*,

Tadaaaa!


With a budget of 70 cents, I managed to get a packet of pins to be used to attach the strap. I know this is kind of  sloppy but harap-harap takkan ada orang yang pandang lama-lama sambil fikir "Ni hipster mana pulak sesat masuk bank ni?!"

Okay, till then. Ciao!

Terlalu berharap dan kemudian hopeless

You know when you hoped so high, but it ended up not happening the heart broke like a shattered glass.

Sebab ada orang batalkan pertemuan kedua.

Atas sebab mungkin... saya telah batalkan pertemuan yang pertama.

Hey, if you did this for a revenge, 

yes, you win.

Nose Match

Okay, I admit I still can't get F from my mind. So I stalked her Facebook again but of course in a decent way. I realized this one guy in her friend's list. He has this kind of attractive nose. I'm pretty sure he's the guy yang F suka. The boyfriend.

Because F pernah told me that she admires Zizan Raja Lawak fondly.

Because of his nose.

His BIG nose.

Or just nose nose.

Well, you know. girls can be so pelik sometimes.

So, anyway, I made a comparison of the guy's nose with mine while waiting for the washing machine to stop *takde kerja, giler*

As shown above, my nose is pointed upwards, similar with that of Jensen Ackles' *tak nak kalah*

While his is pointed downwards. like typical Bollywood Stars'.

And as for Zizan's, he has this big nose.


Yes, that BIG nose. But still... asset is an asset. As a result, he used to date two Pan Asian girls.

Me? I date my Crocs.

Well, back to the topics, here's the verdict: Zizan's nose is pointed downwards. Slightly.

Hence, the guy with the pretty nose wins. Sorry, Syahmi.

Rakyat dibahulukan

Sebenarnya malas nak menulis sebab cerita ni dah jadi tiga hari lepas tapi paksa juga *sambil rotan punggung sendiri*

Just want to tell that at the moment I work with two companies. So that's why lately tak banyak update entries. Sebab letih. Sometimes gerak dari rumah pukul 7.40 AM and going back home at 12.00 AM. Tidur kurang empat jam sebab bila sampai rumah asyik nak karaoke dulu pakai Youtube sampai pukul 3.00 AM...muahaha.

Anyway, last Wednesday KL diserang dengan flash flood. Nasib baik saya pergi kerja dengan LRT. Surrounding area was flooded heavily even though it was raining cats and dogs for less than three hours only.

Crazy right?!

KL kan, biasa la. But then again, what's the purpose of SMART Tunnel? Omnomnom... Kat KL ni cepat naik air, tapi surut pun cepat juga.

Okay, back to the story, even though the rain stopped quite early, I got out from the office a quarter to 10 since I had to accompany my sideline Section Head sebab her husband kena tahan for investigation tiba-tiba. Mula-mula ingatkan sampai pukul 8.00 PM je but dragged until almost 10.00 PM. She said she penakut and tak berani tinggal seorang dalam office. My colleague from  the other level pernah cakap dia dengar bunyi orang berlari belakang dia tapi tak nampak. He was on late night shift at that time.

Great, saya pun penakut juga. Tapi sebab saya hero dalam cerita ni, come on! So show some courages. Hehe

So I jokingly said, "Nanti belanja minum eh?"

And the next day, she did! Whoaa...

Walaupun hari-hari pergi kerja akan lalu the franchise, tapi sekali je saya pernah beli. Sebab a cup of mocha coffee pun dah costs for atleast 10 bucks.  


At first I rejected her treat sebab that night I meant it as a joke. I think she must feel guilty sebab saya temankan dia sampai lewat malam.

So yesterday I just knew that basement parking pun banjir and one of the High level Manager's BMW 5 Series tak boleh start engine.

I don't know why I tell this. Rubbish at all! Haha...

Anyway, saya nak tidur dah. So, good night and take care.

Ciao!

It's complicated

Minggu lepas, saya balik kampung lagi sebab kakak jiran belakang rumah saya kahwin. Jadi topik 'bila giliran hang nak kahwin?" pasti muncul. Sebab umur kakak jiran ialah 27 tahun, sebaya dengan saya dan dia dah kahwin tapi saya belum.

Saya sedar saya dah tua.

Saya dah senja.

Ah, saya tension sampai jerawat tumbuh kat kedua-dua belah pipi saya, dekat dengan hidung pulak tu. Sakit betul.

Mak asked me if I've a girlfriend and I said yes. Well, practically, we chat almost everyday and we've dated once. I named her P. We've met for three months. Saya jatuh hati dengan dia sebab ideologi dia dan dia comel tapi dia kecik. Saya rasa memang susah nak dapatkan calon isteri yang berkaki panjang. Well, beggar can't choose anyway.

Anyway *sekali lagi*, I realize she has a tendency of being dominant. Though she always gives me support and cares lots and lots about me, yesterday was another story.

We discussed about our future. She already planned to further her study in UK next year. She did invite me to join her but I'm not ready. Saya tak nak tinggalkan mak bila dia sedang di hujung usia, bila dia perlukan sokongan anak-anak. Last time, saya pernah nampak dia berkerut muka bila saya cakap saya nak sambung belajar ke Australia. Mak berat hati nak lepaskan saya pergi. Jadi saya tak jadi sambung.

But P said she got to do what she got to do. She ain't bother others.

Nampaknya misi saya untuk berkahwin sebelum umur 32 tahun masih belum tercapai.

In the meantime, I'm still thinking of F. She's the benchmark for my potential wife. I'm comparing her with P. Walaupun saya rasa saya lebih mengenali P berbanding F, tapi hati saya lebih kepada F sebenarnya.

I think F already has a boyfriend. I don't know, because she never answer my question.

Hurmmmpphh...

It's complicated.

I hope she loves me.

I'm still alive, yo!

I think I've to write an entry dengan harapan famili saya tahu yang saya masih hidup hehe. Saya lose communication dengan diorang. Akak, sila baca entry ni.

So last weekends I spent my time at kampung and went back to KL yesterday but I forgot to call mak to inform her that I already arrived. Sebab mak akan risau everytime I drive balik KL sorang diri. This was my third time driving to KL. Last two weeks, from Bagan Serai, my sister's house. Dia pun suruh call after I reached KL. Sebab risau budak tak matang nak drive ke KL yang hiruk pikuk tu seorang diri. Alhamdulillah, I'm still survive, babeh.

Since semalam terlupa nak telefon mak, so I decided to call her this morning tapi telefon buat hal. Sampai sekarang tak boleh nak on. So for the whole day saya tak dapat apa-apa panggilan, or even I myself can't make a phone call.

Memang la, Syahmi. Dah kau tak on kan phone tu, genius!

I admit I feel the freedom without phone, anyhow. Hehe.

Tapi esok nak pergi ke Mydin and find a spare phone for emergency. I'm thinking of Nokia 3310. Ada jual lagi ke?

Anyway, on Sunday, me and mak visited abang and his family kat Manjung. I played along with his girls. And one of them asked me:

"Cakmin nak main teka-teki tak?"

"Ooo... Okey. Jom la."

"Okey. Teka-teki dia macam ni: Bacakan doa ketika melawat orang sakit."

"......."

Nobody knows

I'm almost approaching the phase of 30's. Yet, I've a mind of a 15 years old guy and I'm not talking in the sense of maturity here. Actually, I have a memory age test apps in my phone. So that's how I know I'm 15.

Well, actually I admit 15 could be my level of maturity also. Sekarang saya dah semakin dewasa. Kena pandai buat keputusan sendiri, pelan untuk masa depan, pelan dengan siapa kita nak hidup sampai ke tua nanti. Tapi saya rasa belum bersedia.

The thing is I don't have any. Or, I have but it didn't work accordingly. Let's say I'm a lousy planner and bad action taker.

Let's look at the past *here comes the Ghost from the Past*. While I was at my final year degree, I planned to further my study at Masters level. I did applied both overseas and locals, but I learned the reality of this world. Lagi awal saya masuk ke alam pekerjaan, lebih banyak pengalaman yang saya dapat, lebih senang saya naik pangkat. Sebenarnya belajar sampai peringkat tinggi sangat pun belum tentu boleh menjamin masa depan yang senang.

Mind you, my statement might be wrong, though. Because one's size never fits others.

Then after I entered the working atmosphere, my plan again changed. I was supposed to buy a house first, otherwise I got a new car, practically.

The point is my plan always changes and I'm afraid of the domino's effect. Consequently, one effect will affect another effect. Saya tak nampak jalan saya.

Macam kita sampai di hujung jalan yang ada dua lorong, which road you would've taken? The right path or the left path? You might reach at the same point at the end, or you might not. It could be that you might be at the farthest point between each other. So nobody knows.

But we have God.

Usaha, tawakkal dan takdir yang mengubah hidup kita.

Okey lah. Layan mood untuk berkaraoke dulu. Bila saya stress selalu dengar lagu ni. Dah simpan dalam playlist, sekali dengan lagu Monte from Zee Avi yang saya postkan kat entry sebelum ni.


Bye!

Confessions of a not so competent driver who drives in KL

1. I drove from Alor Pongsu to KL for 5 hours all by myself*insert Celine Dion's song here*

2. I was lost while trying to go to my sister's house, here in KL. Mine to hers only takes 5 minutes. Nasib baik sesat setengah jam je. *Nasib baik ke?* T_T

3. I google-ed the phrase 'I was lost' just to make sure that I won't make a grammatical error. In addition, I always get confuse between the words 'loose' and 'lose'. The latter has more meanings. Hence making me more and more confuse.

4. Dah sampai rumah kakak, but I made a big mistake that I can't forgive myself. Parkings at her place are full so I'd to keluar and cari parking dekat flat belakang. At a T-junction, an MPV wanted to go straight (imagine a T, that car was from the top left point, I was at the middle, bottom point). Tiba-tiba dia berhenti in the middle tapi saya perasan dia tak bagi signal nak masuk ke kanan, to my side. So I assumed the car wanted to go straight. TAPI...TAPI, kenapa dia tak jalan terus? Kenapa dia berhenti? I was so confident it was the driver's priority to take the road until he/she stop. So I wondered was I'm the one who had to move first?

So I made a turn.

Bam! Bam!

No, there was no accident. It was just a sound of my stupidity... The car also moved at the same time actually. That's just my luck! Lagi sikit nak kena langgar. Merely!

Thanks Allah for saving my life. T_T

Overall, the blame should be put on me. I learnt from my mistake.

Revenge OST

Bulan lepas layan TV series Revenge tapi sampai sekarang tak habis lagi tengok musim yang pertama tu sebab saya rasa cerita tu berat sikit nak dihadam sebab cerita pasal orang berdendam. Actually, I don't like such theme sebab impact dia buruk pada saya. Imaginasi saya tinggi (well not in a sex-thing way, of course!).

Yes, such a good story has made me feel like I was in it. Nanti tiba-tiba mulalah rasa macam nak imagine balik siapa yang dah buat silap to me and fikir which is the wickedest tactics for revenge and then have to find which is the most suitable alter ego for me, perlu cari partner in crime apa semua. Macam haram jadah je semua itu. Ini semua poyo hehe.

But since the main actor, Emily is cute tetap juga saya plan nak tengok cerita ni sampai habis. I love when she smiles because it's like there's another secret behind it. She has that Monalisa's smile. It's so convincing, so fishy and mystery.

Macam sambil senyum, tapi dalam hati cakap "You're next in my to-kill list." Hehe.

Am gonna kill yaww, biatch 

But what I like the most is the background music. It suits perfectly bila dimainkan semasa babak konflik antara Emily dan Victoria. Macam meremang segala bulu-bulu yang ada. Okay, mungkin saya sangat exaggerated *sambil kutip bulu-bulu yang sudah berguguran*

Collapsed

It is 3 in the morning and I'm still not feeling very well. Yesterday was the second time I visited the doctor and hopefully earlier this morning I'll get the result for my second blood test.

My condition is quite unfavourable sebab the simptom tak keluar serentak. It was like first day I got fever. Then okay balik. At night nanti my body temperature start to rise again. On-off and on-off fever. Then, on day 3 I got rashes on my whole body. Day 5, luckily they disappeared but I started to feel the muscle joint pain. Then again yesterday I got diarrhea and I lost my apetite. Actually rasa lapar tapi macam dah hilang nafsu pada makanan.

Sekarang rasa macam zombie. Literally. As my friend pun tegur kenapa mata merah, muka macam drug addict.

What is happening to me exactly?

Cuti tak best sebab kena demam campak

I went back to my sister's place at Bagan Serai with my nephew last Saturday as I expected the traffic would be less congested than Friday. It was true. The sad thing was I didn't know that the driver wasn't familiar with the road. Or maybe he wanted to avoid the traffic jam hence he used the jalan kampung instead and misled to the wrong path. Haha.

In the bus, I couldn't do anything other than listening to the music dan tidur sebab demam teruk. I noticed my arms got rashes so I suspected dengue. But at that time saya tak rasa sakit sendi. So I just waited to see the doctor once we reached Bagan Serai.

So we're in the bus for more than six hours from KL to *supposedly Bagan Serai* but we decided to stop at Sitiawan. Pelik pulak apahal driver ni ikut jalan jauh sampai ikut route Teluk Intan. Kenapa tak lalu tempat lain which is more shorter. Tapi tak kisahlah. Atleast we stopped near masjid. 

Keknis fetched us and brought me to the hospital. My body temperature was high. Cepat-cepat MA bagi saya paracetamol. Then the doctor did a blood test for dengue. It was negative.

Bila sampai rumah my sister in law tanya when was I started to get the fever. I said last three days ago. Dia cakap anak dia dulu hari kelima baru detected positive dengue.

Saya telan air liur je. Hahaha. Then I showed her my hand fulled with rashes.



She said it was measles. Kena mandi dengan daun bambu baru hilang gatal sebab dia dah perasan saya start garu tangan dan betis. Lepas tu kena minum air kelapa.

So the next day I visited my neighbour dan minta dia daun bambu. At first I thought bambu = bamboo = buluh tapi tak. Daun dia macam kat bawah ni.



I soaked the leaves with water and then jemur bawah matahari sampai air dia rasa panas. But bibik said kalau kat negara dia, diorang rebus daun tu sebelum mandi. Sebab daun tu ada banyak lagi saya plan nak rebus pula untuk mandi esok. Petang tu mak suruh saya minum air kelapa sebiji tapi macam rashes tu tak keluar habis pun. Kesian kat mak sebab dia pun ada masalah kulit sekarang. Muka dia habis bengkak dan merah-merah.

I went back to KL yesterday morning so tak sempat nak mandi lagi sekali dengan daun bambu.

Sekarang rasa tension sangat sebab seluruh badan masih gatal lagi even though rashes dah hilang. Malam memang tidur tak lena dan selesa sampai terpaksa melenggeng. Tadi Google kat internet pun cakap tak perlu pakai sabun bila mandi and I tried. Yes, I feel less itchy than before. 

So below is a simple note of Do's and Don't when you get measles:
1. Mandi air rebusan daun bambu
2. Minum air kelapa untuk keluarkan semua rashes dalam badan
3. Jangan gunakan sabun ketika mandi
4. Jauhi benda yang anda alergi
5. Sapu losyen Calamine kat tempat yang gatal
6. Tak payah pakai baju hehe

Idiot human being

That moment when you think about something so deeply that you forget to breathe.

It happened to me.

Picnic at Sungai Lepoh

Today I'm still feeling exhausted as yesterday I went hiking and picnic for a whole day at Sungai Lepoh with my unimates.

We planned to move at 7.30am but dragged until almost 10.00am. Janji tinggal janji betul. Haha. So saya jadi so-called map reader sebab tempat tu dekat dengan tempat saya tinggal sekarang.

So when my friend asked, "Terus kan, Syahmi?"

I said, "Yes."

Then, "Lepas tu masuk simpang kiri kan, Syahmi?"

"Ha'ah."

Lepas tu terus sesat.

Terpaksa tukar peranan bagi kat NG sebab dia dah pergi Sungai Lepoh tu empat kali. Haha. Tolong jangan buat camni lain kali boleh? Kalau tahu katakan tahu. Tidaklah hamba menjadi sesengal ini.

And I didn't even know that we have to hiking to go there. Dah la pakai Crocs je. So when the time we had to report to the Tok Batin, I hid behind his car and cocking my head, because he wanted to do a headcount. Pidot also joined me since he wore his selipar apek and he's the one yang told me Tok Batin tu pernah ceramah dia panjang lebar sebab pakai kasut selipar je. And he simply answered, "Saya okey je, Tok. Dah empat lima kali panjat bukit ni pakai selipar selamba je."

Hati kering betul budak ni.   

So before started hiking, we had a simple warm-up and doa-doa sikit. We took about less than two hours to reach the waterfall and stop once in the middle of the expidition sebab nak tangkap gambar. Lepas tu ada la sorang mamat tu tak larat nak terusan hiking sebab dia cakap tak cukup tidur. Kelmarin tidur pukul empat pagi... Tapi lepas dia hisap rokok terus segar. Fish! Haha. 

Anyway, we reached the waterfall at 1.00pm and we started the fire and had a BBQ - chicken, shrimps, beef, sausages etc. Some of them dah started mandi. The water was so cold but not as cold when we were at Tekala. Lagipun banyak pebbles kat dasar air terjun tu. Jadi saya mandi sekejap je.

And most of the boys enjoyed sliding on the waterfall. Saya tak berani nak buat slide sebab telupa nak bawa helmet *apekah?*

I focused more on makan-makan sebab budak Kelanasiswa masak memang sedap. At first semua orang macam risau sebab terlupa nak bawa nasi tapi lepas makan semua makanan yang diorang bakar tu pun dah rasa kenyang. Even tak habis pun udang tu. I bet the boys reheat the leftover right now, sambung makan balik.

Abaikan stokin masam itu

There was an awkward moment happened to me while I was standing, waiting for the shrimps to be cooked. One of my friend walked pass in front of me and he stood there.Then he bent. 

HOLY CRAP! 

I noticed seluar dia kat bahagian belakang terkoyak and he wore no back up *If you know what I mean*. Automatic saya pandang tempat lain sebab saya tengah kunyah daging bakar masa tu. Anyway, I wondered why I looked at that spot in the first place. 

Oh, right! I was waiting for my shrimps. And eventually his back was parallel with my view. So that's how the story happened. Saya tak sampai hati nak tegur dia. So I just prayed that -other than me- no one would see that thing again.

Okey....okey... buka cerita lain, selain ayam bakar, saya suka makan ubi keledek Korea yang diorang bakar.  

Sekian.

Random sikit

Bila saya naik LRT, saya paling suka pemandangan yang dekat dengan LRT Maluri. Sebab kat situ saya boleh nampak KL Twin Tower.

Sebab teringat kat The Lord of the Ring's Two Towers.

Dalam otak selalu fikir kat situ lah pusat segala kejahatan bermula.

Pastu senyap-senyap cakap "My preciousss...."


I love KL.

Sambutan New Year secara hipster

Tahun ni saya rasa agak liar sebab sambut Tahun Baru dengan dengan cara berkaraoke dan melepak di mapley sampai pukul 4 pagi dengan lelaki-lelaki bujang yang lain (baca: losers).

Sebab hujung tahun lepas semua housemate saya dah bertunang and all of them will be married this year, jadi rasa tertekan. Suatu perasaan yang sukar diungkapkan dengan kata-kata. Ceewahh... Terus rasa macam malas nak balik rumah sewa dah. Hahaha.

Serve you right on that face la kan. Siapa suruh memilih sangat.

So, anyway, this year I joined them for a karaoke session tapi saya tak menyanyi pun sebab segan dengan suara sendiri. Suara Zharif juga yang sedap. Hahaha.

This was the second time actually cuma this time keluar dengan all boys group so we did everything macam orang gila. Macam kat bawah ni.

 Sorry NG. Hehe.

There was another song yang dia menyanyi together with Zamri. It was BYOB by System of a Down. So tau-tau je la lagu dari System of a Down ni memang bising gila babi but the lyrics macam kelakar sikit. And they sang the song like... entah la. Haha. Tercungap-cungap nak kejar the chorus part. It was funny sampai saya gelak pun rasa nak termuntah.

Anyway, I was curious about the title BYOB sebab in the lyrics macam takde sebut pun that acronym. So lepas keluar from the premise I asked Zamri. Then he pointed at a disco place.

"Bring your own broccoli bottle."

Next year NG ajak sambut ceramah kat Stadium Shah Alam.

Dengar ceramah ustaz.
