Downside To The Upside

Everybody's raving about this year's SPM result. It turned out the girl who was supposed to get 19A's didn't get 19A's after all! That poor kid! I'm better of taking 10 subjects and get straight a's for them than suffer the humiliation of a failed attempt to outbest Publicized Princess Amalina (another more ridiculously Publicized Princess is no other than Diana 'Ina' Naim of high-profile break-up with Mawi fame. Puhleaze! You people have to mind your own business- then again, other people's business is their business! How can an ex-fiancee of Mawi turn into an overnight artiste? Did she just cry her way to stardom?). Think of all the wasted time and effort. All the hard work of trying to foolishly out-do 'a record' that the kementerian so much prized. Can't 10A's propel you to a better future as well? I've seen students with 10A's (just) doing so much better than Amalina right now. So, what's with all that jazz of taking so many subjects? It's quality, not quantity. You should just concentrate on what's best for you, and make the most out of it. A saying once goes, "it's not about what you know (have,in this case, refering to the number of subjects you are taking for spm), it's about what you do with what you know". Think about it.

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

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…

Of Engineering and Life

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.

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.
