Pointless Monologues

Pointless monologues
that's what they are
merely pointless monologues

because

Ignorance walks in many forms

Wealth struts down the lane in his cashmere coat
swaggering of his fortune and wine,
with Poverty begging at his feet
licking dirt from his boots

Greed sits behind the mahogany desk
strewn with cash and bank checks,
profit from robbery
while Gratitude meekly sweeps his floors
picking at his crumbs

Cruelty laughs in the face of death
shooting the stars
with collosal bazookas
when Mercy cries for justice
with a broken arm in one hand

Pointless monologues,
that's what they are, just pointless monologues

p/s: sorry, Zah. I was inspired by your blog title.

A Lot To Be Grateful For

It's official: I will not entertain any more tags. Sorry.
It's tiresome, and it's not the purpose of this blog.
Sure they're fun and they give you a reason to blog, for those who don't really know what to do with their blogs.

I got this from February 2008 issue of Reader's Digest.

"To be bored is to stop reacting to the external world, and to explore the internal one. It is in these times of reflection that peole often discover something new, whether it is an epiphany about a relationship or a new theory about the way the universe works. Granted, many people emerge from boredom feeling that they have accomplished nothing." ".....There is a strong argument that boredom- so often parodied as a glassy-eyed drooling state of nothingness- is an essential human emotion that underlies art, literature, philosophy, science and even love." From the article 'The Joy of Boredom' by Carolyn Johnson. So, what's this? Boredom in a more positive light?…

Scavenger II

Hi, all. Welcome to the second series of my scavenging.

Location: SMSTMFP compounds, covering dormitories, classes, toilets, etc., etc. no premise is spared from my photo-snapping. There were lots more pictures taken within these few weeks, but here are some of them.

my trusty calculator, handy in solving add maths problems and maths. Although due to my carelessness, I always keyed in the wrong numbers and result with the wrong answers. Guess what's on my table. Maths, or add maths? An exhibition of determination.

Inspired by Twilight? nah..this was a random one. Not forgetting the lil' critters found..
A baby frog in mid-jump. I had a tough time photographing this one as it kept running away, and it had a good camouflage against the ground.
I found this cute one the day when we were washing the floors of the dormitory.

I don't know what the heck this creature is, it looks like some kind of butterfly.

Now, where did this come from?

The new renovated toilet, but no water!
Now, le…

Wish List

There's a lot of things on my wish list, actually, but here are some items on that list. I can foretell that at the least, I might be able to get them after SPM.


The Boys Who Saved The World by Sam Mills, it had a good review, I might as well check it out. I bet it serves up a lot of analogies of political- religious issues, the zeitgeist of the so-called modern and sophisticated era that we live in today. Kak Ainul made a good review on it. The synopsis itself is very intriguing indeed. Surely must read more.

The synopsis sounds juicy, as it provides a twist to the conventional Wizard of Oz story. My sinister inner child-cum-imp is hell bent on getting her hands on this one. And yeah, pray that I do well for my trials and the real SPM. 12 A1s, including that Cambridge English assessment. Oh, just so you know, I'm not doing any more tags in the future, mind you.

P.S.

Haha, another self-indulging night of blogging? Darn, why is it so hard for me to resist the temptation? Its like an inexplicable craving in the time of need for 'blurbs' (does this term even exist?) and such. I was thinking of the title for my yet to update story. What do you think about 'Bombshell'?

Well, anyway, here's the first novel I've read to kick start the year. Another one of Syakir's. The second chick lit book from him after The Devil Wears Prada.

The first few chapters seemed strikingly promising, and the whole novel was absolutely witty with humorous descriptions, going overboard in typical chick litty exaggeration and melodrama (what's that suppose to mean?), especially when it came to doing the karaoke, and checking out guys.

It was entertaining, the plot was fast-paced in the beginning, but when it came closer to opening the last letter, the pace slowed down a notch, until it came to a point when I felt dull going over the repetition of seq…

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 …
