The Ties That Bind Us

Have you noticed that some people are actually willing to be manipulated like a puppet on a string? It's funny sometimes that just because you want to fit-in in a social clique, you actually have to follow every silly whim of a certain person so that you can belong in their group.
Dress codes, unwritten rules..puh-lease! Is that what our modern world needs? Traditions and conservative cultures? Abiding to the laws of the normal crowd?
Teen tribes are so last century. The world can actually be a better place without it, but then, there won't be any fun in destroying the queen bee of the school, wouldn't there? It's the ways of our lives, the certain ties that bind us.

Hahaa, a post which is actually sticking to the subject. I always tend to drift off somewhere when I post something on my blog and I never really stay on topic for long. (Hmm.. that sounds 'distracted' to me)

I'm still trying to cope with teenhood. Dealing with potty-training when I was a wee lassie some time ago was a lot easier, though (wee? did I say wee? Pee- wee or weewee? Look, there I go again!).

I haven't really writen a poem in ages and God, I miss that tingly feeling that I get each time after I've successfully written a personal masterpiece. Maybe I will write one in the future coz i'm rather tied down with things myself. Har-har. See ya!

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.


Taming Tigers

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

why?
simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
