My favorite things

I'm still at this internet cafe.. and to my own surprise, the internet connection is actually far much better than at my own office. So while I'm here, I just I want to share some of my favorite things this week






1. Thirteen- the indie movie starring Evan Rachel Wood
2. 27 Dresses- I have it on DVD. I'm going to watch it later tonite.
3. New Wave and electronica acts like- Test Icicles(now disbanded), Tapes 'N' Tapes, Bloc Party ("we are in the state of flux"), Enur, Goldfrapp, September etc etc
4. ANTM 10- The Frankenstein is out and heading straight back to the laboratory
5. My new Casio watch- it vibrates!
6. Britney- finally getting her act together
7. Feed a Child with just a Click- a group on Facebook tackling a very serious issue
8. Movies on youtube!- they come in 13-part. Grainy images but who the fuck cares!
9. A possible trip to Kedah next week- nothing official yet. But H&F might spread some lovin in Kedah
10.Labour Day- after all these hard labour..Yes, we need a break. Read more!

One of those days ..


Just one of those days.. When you're at home with the TV on and you have dirty laundry scattered all over the floor and all you wanted to do was to be with your friends but when you called, they didn't pick up the phone..

So.. I got up from my couch, put my favorite jeans on and dragged my ass out to the door and here I am.. I'm at this internet cafe in my hometown after a couple of cigarettes and my friend called back and suddenly things back okay..I still feel like shit but less shitty then the way that I felt few minutes ago..

Sharina called back and I was bitchin to her about my apparently, day from hell. She's always so nice and she's like one of the people who always understands me and I know for sure that I can always turn to her..regardless. Things might be a little bit different after this..I don't know..because there's this little thing that she's about to do. I'm happy for her and I will always be. But the thought of having her fading away, is just too much for me to handle. Maybe I ws just being a little bit dramatic but..it is possible..

I was supposed to go to this little trip that my college organized for all the staff today. But they cancelled it last minute. I can actually call back my driving instructor and tell him that I am available for driving lesson today..I didn't do it.. I don't know.. I wanna be able to get my hands behind the wheels so bad..but right now, being told that I am suck at driving is the last thing that I wanted to do..

Fuck! Why do I feel so bad? It's weekend for God sake! I had been conting the days for the workdays to be over. Now that the weekend is here, I just can't stop complaining!

Shut Up and Drive


I was writing this entry on a piece of paper while invigilating the students’ examination. The weather is chilly and in fact it is still raining outside. I feel like I just want to go home and crawl under my warm blanket.

I have been posting a lot of photos lately. I actually find myself spending less and less time writing. I wanted to, but I just couldn’t find the time to do it. Seriously! It’s just so damn difficult to fit everything into my tight schedule these days. I have been putting my driving lesson on hold for two weeks. Even worse, my driving instructor started to lose it. He told me last week that I am actually one of the ‘slowest’ among the group of people that he is currently teaching. That hurts..I guess I am a lousy driver. It’s not like I freaked out behind the wheel, I’m just not good with machines.

I have to figure this shit out ASAP. Or else I’ll be stuck on the buses and trains for the rest of my life. And that sucks!

Splurge!



We also went to Starhill last weekend. It rained but who cares! I was spending my money like there was some kind of spirit that has entered my body. No regret tho..Just ask Zaki, he knows..

And these are all from the day before. We were driving around in my hometown and again, with nowhere to go.. Been quite sometimes since the last time I saw Amish. And man I have to give it up to her. She has orange fingernails! Hahah! She might look a little bit different these days but I know for sure that deep inside, she's still the same person that I always refer to as Kak Long.SWEET!

Cigarette in one hand..

This was taken yesterday somewhere in Seremban. I was just goofing around with Zaki and we seriously got nowhere to go. So we went bargain-hunting at one of our favorite store in Seremban. And no, it was not McD. I thanked God for this little Starbucks that has finally arrived in Seremban.I just can't think of anywhere else to go. Seriously! It was not really a bad weekend but I was not jumping with joy either. Friend, shot of caffeine, cigarette in one hand and I'm all set to go=)

Melee- Can't Hold On



There's not even one day that I can wake up without listening to this song for the past couple of weeks. Read more!

Weekday Getaway??



Out of frustration and disappointment from my oh-not-so-fabulous weekend, I took the train and head back to the city after work. This time with my colleague, Jiyna. The destination is KLCC=)

Shikin was there waiting with her sister, Zura. I love seeing them together.They're like the cattier version of my sisters. Very fun to watch, like The Banger Sisters.

Dinner at Madam Kwan's, coffee at Starbucks and I bought new perfume, Polo Explorer. Not really my cup of tea, but for RM100 it was so worth it.

On the way back inside the train, I got a text message from Shikin. It read:

S: Make sure u upload the pix on frenster@myspace@facebook ok? so, is ur weekday getaway succeeded?mine, yes.

And I answered:

H:Yes, n thx 2 u.

obviously not a huge fan of Monday.. Read more!

Weekend and then some..





Another weekend in the city and this time it was a bit different.. I had fun but not as much fun as I anticipated. It was aite..

I got a pair of Aldo shoes for bargain. Which I am so damn proud of by the way. I also got myself another pair of shades to go with my new outfit. The frame is leopard-print. Growl!

The new white jeans and nautical shirt combos are all over April issues of Details magazine. Haha! Looks like I am way ahead of them!

I am still tired from the late night and all the trotting my little ass out around OU. I was really close to calling in sick today. But I soldiered on anyway. I have a lot of things to do at work today. So here I am! In the office on Monday. Blah!

I slept at 9.30 am on Saturday and it was just insane! It was all great until it gets to the point when Nizam and I discovered that Ben was not alone at home. The rooms were all occupied and the couch had someone sleeping on it as well. I ended up sleeping on Ben's bedroom floor for three hours. Not fun!

Natasha oh Natasha..

Kek Coklat by Natasha Hudson

Saya mahu satu kehidupan,
Kamu mahu sesuatu yang lain,
Kita tidak dapat makan kek coklat,
Jadi kita makan sesama diri.

The original ‘Cake’ written by Roger McGough

i wanted one life
you wanted another
we couldn’t have our cake
so we ate each other.

********************

Si Kura-Kura Kecil by Natasha Hudson


Ada seekor kura-kura kecil
tinggal di dalam kotak
berenang di tepi tasik
memanjat di atas batu

dia cuba menggigit nyamuk
dia cuba mengigit kutu
dia cuba menggigit berudu
dia cuba menggigit aku

dia berjaya menangkap nyamuk
dia berjaya menangkap kutu
dia berjaya menangkap berudu
tetapi dia tidak berjaya menangkap aku

The Little Turtle by Vachel Lindsay


There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow.
And he snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn’t catch me.

********************

Mentega kuning, jelly ungu, jam merah, roti hitam by Natasha Hudson


Mentega kuning, jelly ungu, jam merah, roti hitam
ratakan tebal
katakan cepat

ratakan tebal
katakan cepat

sekarang ulang
sambil kamu makan

sekarang ulang
sambil kamu makan

janganlah bercakap
bila mulut kamu penuh

Things We Like to Eat by Mary Ann Hoberman


Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread.
Spread it thick,
Say it quick.

Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread
Spread it thicker,
Say it quicker.

Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread
Now repeat it,
While you eat it.

Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread
Don’t talk
With your mouth full!

********************
I only have this one stanza poem for her:

Natasha Hudson made a mistake
She claimed she wrote Roger McGough's "Cake"
I guess she just wanted to bake
But she ended up being fake?

I was just too lazy to upload the photos on my photobucket.. So, I simply paste it all up here. The only reason is because I am still tired from all the fun that I had yesterday.. I got back home around 10pm after what seemed like hours of busride from Shah Alam. But it was all worth it man=)

It was very brief but I finally managed to rekindle my friendship with Fara which has taken a back seat since last year. We're okay now and I'm fuckin glad that we're now BFFs again. Go MJ!! And go err..H&F!!?

There's a talk of me coming back to Shah Alam next week. But I still can't really confirm that. I missed my friends so much. I feel like they are my only connection to my past. Past that I miss sooo much.. I want to be free like a child, like a bird, like Paris Hiton after her jail stint..or like ya know..WHATEVER!

* can I finish this off tomorrow? it's 5.30pm. Time to go home. Read more!

No Idea...

I was browsing through all of my blog entries so far. I just have one thing to say- My Topman graphic hoodie has been making far too many appearences. It looked as if I have a very limited wardrobe access. It was just kinda funny how I happened to be in that purple hoddie whenever I am being photographed. Maybe I should let it rest in my closet for a while. Haha=)

I don't really have any particular thing to write about. I just wanna write and write until some kinda of magical idea suddenly struck my mind. Whatever that supposed to mean..

It has been quite sometimes since the last time I hit the club. I was in Zouk on Ghetto Heaven night. It was kinda boring. I couldn't believe that they still play "Umbrella" and "Fatman Scoot"(not even sure if it's Scoop or Scoot!). LAME!! I feel an old-fart in the middle of the sea of young, sweaty brats. And yes, I was wearing THAAAAT hoodie=( Haha

I noticed the fact that commercial hip-hop and RnB just simply do not appeal to me anymore, the way that it did a few years back. I believe that I will have greater amount of F.U.N if I go to other places that play indie,electronica, New Wave, garage from acts like Bloc Party, LCD Soundsystem, Daftpunk, Clor, The Smiths, Telepopmusik, Unkle, Goldfrapp, M.I.A, Miss Kittin, Razorlight, Roisin Murphy,Royksopp etc. Well..H&F is less and less commercial these days. Yes I do!

This is My Religion



**Assalamualaikum,You heard what that magazine and short film in Denmark has published. It's making fun of our beloved PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW) by drawing pictures of him and describing him as a terrorist. Moreover they refused to apologize because they considered it a practice of freedom and democracy. I ask you all to put your hands with other MUSLIMS and boycott the Denmark's products. 1.6 billion Muslims could really slap the economy in Denmark. Please copy this text and forward this text to as many Muslims as possible Via Email via SMS Via Scrap..... I ask u,as a Muslims... Can't u spare 15 minutes in order to spread this message among Muslims ...

I believe that it is my responsibility to paste this on my blog considering the fact that I am a Muslim. There are a lot of buzz about bad stuff that people say and do about Islam. The most recent one is the short-film from Holland "Fitna". The funny thing is the word "fitnah" in Malay means "libel; slander; defamation" which is exactly what the movie is all about. The translations of the Al-Quran in the movie are misleading, the footage was all crappy and I don’t think “Fitna” can really be considered as a short-film. It’s just sooo-damn amateurish and looks like something that my 12-year-old nephew can possibly come out with after less than an hour toying with the Movie-maker application.

It’s just funny what people are capable of doing these days. They can think of the unthinkable, do things that are impossible and speak out words that supposedly unspeakable. I know you can have your freedom of speech, free-will thinking or whatever crap you want to call it. But, somewhere along the way, I guess people have just forgotten about the certain lines that we are not supposed to overstep. It might have been a very thin line but if I can see it, then I can’t see any reason why other people failed to notice that.

I’m a Muslim and I don’t support violence. So does all 1.2 billion Islamic population worldwide..

What more can I say?

p/s: The book-cover shown above is "I Am Muslim" by Dina Zaman, one of my favorite Malaysian columinist. It's a really fascinating read and I've learn so much about all the religious issues in Malaysia that have been swept under the rug for so long. Check it out. One of the best local reads. Read more!

Yawn...




I’m at work.. Feeling so damn sleepy.. I just wanna go home..Lie down and sleep..But that is quite impossible because I have class until 10 pm! Can you believe that!? Oh my Gosh..

I just want to shake off all work related stuff from my system. It’s just so tiring and emotionally draining. Seriously.. After several months of working, I still haven’t fully embraced the changes that are taking place in my life.

I have to channel almost all of the energy that I have into teaching. All the screaming, thinking, photo-copying, paper-marking.. It’s driving me insane! And I have to wear this fugly company shirt every Wednesday. It’s black and orange, make me look 100-pounds heavier and made out of cheap polyester. I look like some old, electronic factory worker. No offence to all the factory workers out there, tho.. Hahaha!

There I go again.. Complaining.. Bitching.. Typical me! I’m just tired..That’s all..

Oh! I bought blue shoe-laces yesterday for my white Chuck Taylor. John Varvatos is wearing it with dark blue shoe-laces this season. I’m copying the look. Last year it was white Chuck Taylor with deep red shoe-laces. I have that too.

I need my weekend..Please..pretty please.. Read more!

Victim and his fashion

I was bombarded with questions concerning my work. It was like a series of questions that question my ability and commitment. Maybe I was doing shitty work and maybe I might have lost focus a little throughout the month. But who the fuck cares! My boss obviously did! Whatever! I was trying to do my best but if my best is just not good enough for her, then I don’t know what else to say.

That was about the meeting that I had at the college yesterday.. Today is another day. Just like that song from Telepopmusik. Another day just believe..Another day..just believe.. Another day..Hahahaha=) I think I’m going crazy!

Well I just don’t know what to write about. So I just want to give this lowdown on stuff that I’m currently into:-

• Chalk-white jeans
• Neon tees
• Summer sandals
• White light-weight slip-ons
• Bright-colored boxing shorts
• White chuck Taylor’s with blue laces

I have this really wonderful white cuffed-short. But I am agonizing over the length of it. I’m a bit self-conscious over the fact that my knees are fully on display and the fact that I have hairy legs really make things worse.

My oh my! Things people do in the name of fashion.. Read more!
