Age

In a state of disarray,
hunched,
squatting by the corner,
with the soft light pouring in 
from the open doors of the bar.
dismal and insignificant,
putrid and repellent.

Dancing shadows,
enter the prancing jester,
mockingly jovial,
unwary and nonchalant
of the maimed stranger,
crippled by the desolation of youth.

As the world walks on,
eyes momentarily linger
with disregard
at the sorry state,
reviled with the innate ugliness
of the withering soul,
filled with revolt,
disgust,
and self-assuring denial.

how one regards
the disfigured
with such venom
and even more so
when one rejects
the imminent reality
of the final falling grains of sand
in the hourglass
of one's life.

Age, how dost thou plunge me into melancholy,
regret and wishful thinking?

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.

Okay, yesterday, I went to my little sister's kindergarten sports day held at SMK Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju Hall. Well, the field is wet because it has been raining almost every day in KL, well, in my area.
Anyway, I was the photographer that day, a tak bertauliah one, mind you. Here are some of the pics. They are so cute!
