My search for the shock-absorbing camera cover is to no avail, so, henceforth, I will not bring my Lumix to school for fear of mechanical damage and theft. (Although I do have a lot of thnigs to document in the last few days of School).

I watched 17 Again, it was a great movie, the theme was exactly what I was wondering about all this while, you know, the chance to go back and do it all over again. (If you read my previous post, you'll know what I'm talking about. The feeling of leaving behind the good days and thinking that if only you could experience it all over again later in the future because looking at your yearbook and simply reminiscing the good times is not enough for you).

Hate to burst the bubble. Of course, life doesn't work that way, so enjoy it while you can. Not to say that I am an avid supporter of hedonisme, no! Yeah, we should have fun, but not the kind of out of control wild party kind of fun, maybe if you just feel happy living your life, it would be a lot more fun living your life a day at a time without having to worry about.."damn! I'm gonna miss this", because there is always a 'kesinambungan' to your happiness. Is that how optimism works?

Teacher Mai always tells me to cheer up because I look so glum, well, people have been telling me that since I was, like, eight?

I know I'm a serious person, I'm not a social butterfly, but do I actually look miserable? Haha, rhetorical question.

Why wallow myself in self-pity and apathy when there's nothing to be emo-ish about? I bet I'm supposed to be a lot happier than some of those kids some where across the globe.

Being happy and carefree is not laziness. Just because I didn't do my homework doesn't mean that I'm lazy. I'm just trying to be happy. =]

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.
"terkenang-kenang pula saat-saat merenung ke kejauhan di Pantai Cahaya Bulan tatkala melihat gambar laut.." =)
