Next in line...

After having years (i can put the 's' now since it's more than one xD) of experience in working, I'm kinda like at ease with everything already. Yeap, it is different from my college years.. But still, working doesn't really translate to negligence of your close friends. I've been keeping up with everything and with most people i hold dear. There are some who are just not reachable, it is not that i dont care for them anymore. Even on weeknights, I'd still try my very best to say "yes" to any invitation, be it a mamak session, going for movies, some nocturnal activities, footsal, fusbal etc etc.. Life, friendship, it's kinda like synonymous and interrelated.


Now, back to talking bout works. The semester has ended for most of my students and if you're looking through my eyes, it would be like this...


Yes, I'm down with marking students' assignments and their final exam scripts. It's a bit tedious and the process is consuming much of my quality times with friends (sorry Sey Sey, sbb tak dapat turun for Tom Yam). And if you notice, that's not my table in the office, in fact, i prefer to do it in the teacher's lounge. Nothing beats the comfy sofa and i could plug my ears to loud mp3s to pump the adreinaline. My other source of entertainment would be answers from my students.
For example:-
Part 2: Write a topic sentence for each of the following paragraphs. Remember to include both the topic and the controlling idea.

Paragraph 1
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
English speakers relaxing at home, for example, may put on kimonos, which is a Japanese word. English speakers who live in a warm climate may take an afternoon siesta on an outdoor patio without realizing that these are Spanish words. In their gardens, they may enjoy the fragrance of jasmine flowers, a word that came into English from Persian. They may even relax on a chaise while snacking on yogurt, words of French and Turkish origin, respectively. At night, they may shampoo their hair and put on pajamas, words from the Hindi language of India.
And their answer was..
"A lot of foreign language in English. The English are stealing all our words!"
(-.-)
Well.. whatever! hahahaha... This weekend (after I'm done with all the marking and grading of course) I'm heading to Sarawak for a friend's wedding. I'm also hanging out with some of my buddies who are back in Sarawak after graduating. Looking forward for that, beaching, hanging out, barbecue-ing and all.. woot woot~! (in reference to Husni). Hahahhaah

Analogi Hidup

Sejak dari hari kita dilahirkan.. kita telah diajar untuk berdiri. bermula dengan tubuh kecil mengheret diri di atas lantai, menuju sesuatu, mengejar destinasi. Semakin hari kita dianugerahkan kudrat untuk mula mengangkat diri dari lantai. Kaki mula punyai kuasa untuk menolak badan ke atas dan mula berdiri. Walau pun dengan bantuan tangan ibunda, lutut masih terketar-ketar.. menahan.. dan mencuba untuk berdiri seperti semua orang. Dan seiya dengan hari-hari kita berlajar bertutur dan berkata-kata.. kita pun mula berjalan, berlari dan seterusnya melompat-lompat riang. Itulah norma kita, manusia. Perlahan-lahan, kita akan dapat mempelajari sesuatu.. Setiap kali kita jatuh, pantas, bangun semula dan teruskan berlari. Tetapi, kadang-kadang bila kita terjatuh.. kita memilih untuk sengaja tidak bangun. Duduk bersandar kepenatan dengan segala perit jerih yang dunia campak ke riba kita. Kadang-kadang.. larian kita memang berarah tetapi benda yang dikejar bagaikan mempersendakan kita. Nampak macam dekat, semakin kita berhempas-pulas semakin jauh ianya kelihatan. Laksana seekor kucing yang mengejar ekornya sendiri. Kita akan terasa bodoh, terasa bagaikan permainan ni tiada arah tujunya. Kita perlu belajar menerima hakikat, kadangkala kita tak mungkin mempoerolehi segala-galanya. Untuk si kucing yang mengejar ekornya, tiga pilihan yang ada untuk dipilih.. Teruskan dengan permainan bodoh tersebut, terima hakikat yang ekor itu memang bukan untuk dikejar atau potong sahaja ekor itu.. buang dan tak perlu kejar2 lagi.. =D

Neon

This is really only all I have
("This insanity kept me sane..)
Night light, neon, neon and fluorescent
(.. for every tears i once shed..)
A smile, a laughter, and insanity that makes no sense
(.. was carried away by it..)
Cycling void, and faces of friends
(.. cant live without insanity as..)
The softest touch cuts the deepest
(.. it'll bring back all the things i hate..)
And now this is really all I have
(.. blankets me warmly..)
Night light, neon, neon and fluorescent
(.. embracing my fragile heart..)
These words cant carry
(.. so it wouldn't break anymore")
The weight of a history
And in due time
It will be alright.

Tribute to our music champion!

It was the time of the decade, back in the 90s.. I was just a high school student.. Music is something soooo large.. Having two brothers and a sister kinda like widened up my horizon on musical selection. The eldest is an all out metal, with music like megadeth, helloween, iron maiden.. the second one, is leaning towards the fusion and what made up the new genres like what now we call rap rock or nu-age with bands like Faith no more, Primus, Downset. The sister, she's an all out pop music but kinda into what her brothers into as well.. It was that time of the decade that when i switched on the TV, a new program called Alternatif started airing with all the hypes of our local flavors. It was back at that moment I was introduced to the band Butterfingers.

At first I wasn't impressed by the distinct sound of Nirvana in their 1st album. Even with all the hype that surrounded the band, i couldn't care less about.. not until they found their true sound in the following albums. They matured into Butterfingers, out from the grunge stereotyping of that season.. out from "owh.. you sound sooo Nirvana" comments from the critiques. They're the pride of our local music, the other side that is.. and i have never met any MCKK students that isn't fond of the band (the band members are mostly the ol' boys). Every musician from Ipoh that i've met must have mentioned the band's name once in a while.. So here we go.. My entry, tribute to our local music heroes.. The Butterfingers!



By the way, please pay attention to the news reel in the video. There are some amusing things, playing the sarcasm card for what's happening in our country.

*edit

Among my favorite quotes from the newsreel would be:-

"Osama Ben Laden telah dijumpai di Las Vegas, Texas, ketika bermain Jackpot."

"Presiden Bush telah meletak jawatannya sebagai Presiden Amerika Syarikat kerana ingin meneruskan pembelajaran di pusat pengajian tinggi di LUCT."

"Angkasawan negara digesa kerajaan Rusia supaya menjelaskan bayaran sepenuhnya, di atas lawatan sambil bercuti beliau ke angkasa lepas pada Novermber 2007."

I just LOVE it.. =D bands with wisdom and brains are always in my radar.
