OMG! 2009

It's the new year, and I'm back for the hols. Well, it has only been a few weeks, and already eventful, but not on my part though, I'm actually enjoying the bliss of not doing anything but sitting in class doing my homework for a change.

So much for my new year resolutions, I've already blown my top, twice and I've been late for school three times already, which has caused me to abandon my breakfast most of the time, even if I didn't abandon it, I would still be seen purchasing canteen food. I can't help myself, I need to eat.

Some of the highlights for the two weeks was the motivational session with the UTP students, where we had a mock interview session, and some activities. I got some useful info on engineering.

Another highlight is the Gaza fund raising. The event had a great effect on me. I was stunned. After all these years, I've had my tears held back so obstinately, but at that particular moment, they came streaming out like a fountain. It simply was.. devastating to see them all suffer like that. Can you imagine? Stones against guns? Families running for their lives and seeing your loved ones die in front of you? Having your kids taken away and all that? That was.. unthinkably inhumane.

Lastly, who could ever forget Mr. Dol?
He has moved on to SMK Kubang Telaga as the new principal there. I wrote him a poem.

This morning before I came back to KL, the form 5 and form 3 students had a consultation session between the parents and the teachers. Apparently, from the teachers' comments, it was obvious that I wasn't paying attention in class, and I have not been trying hard enough.

When I get back, I will have to face the music of more headache-inducing affairs, especially the demand of exorbitant amount of funds for K.O.T. among other things. I am at my wit's end.

Indeed 2009 will be a roller-coaster ride. Change is expected, whether for better or for worse.
Obama, Najib, etc., etc.

Well, the title says it all, OMG! 2009.

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…

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.
