1 thing I knew.

One thing I truly knew - knew it in the pit of my stomach, in the center of my bones, knew it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, knew it deep in my empty chest - was how love gave someone the power to break you

Before you.

blog buih

"Before you, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

State of mind.

Photo Outing.

Setelah sekian lama menjadi pemalas kat rumah, aku berjaya juga pergi outing amik gambar tempoh hari.

Lokasi pilihan, Dataran Merdeka.

Objektif keluar amik gambar kawan2 berjaya dengan penuh gaya.

Setiap lawatan ke dataran merdeka tidak lengkap jika tak kena kacau dengan bohsia.

"Bang, amik gambar saya bang!"

Muka penuh minyak tuti, ada hati.

I boarded the train. Its body wraps the singular rail underneath. The tube like appearance of the train is further augmented by the colorful display within.

This is not me. I'm not colorful like this. Inside I'm all gray today. With a hint of black from tar and nicotine.

The first stop was Chow Kitt. I hated Chow Kitt. But now I'm able to tolerate it. It's beauty amidst the havoc. Blinding lights, deafening sounds. Where the cultures intertwined in a mixing bowl. The imbrication is not vague to say the least.

I sat there. Overseeing Chow Kitt from above. The train moved on.

This is my stop. Medan Tuanku.

I started walking. It's a hot day today. Summery and sweaty. The warm sun didn't help me think straight. Random thoughts starts creeping up. I hasten my steps. I've got to reach there sooner.

This walk should have taken me closer to you but instead it's taking me in circles and I end up standing where I started.

She called my name. I collected the envelope.

I boarded the train. The same tube like machine only in different color. This one is in pink.

In the train. More thoughts came to me. It's not fun to be dwarfed by all this. I need to enjoy the view of Chow Kitt from the train.

The ephemeral journey ends. I walk down the steps. The heat is getting to me again. sweats began to form at my forehead. It's designed to make me feel cooler but I think it just makes me feel uncomfortable.

With an envelope in my hand I step into a cold room, i've been rferring to as my office. The sun can't get me here but the thought of your smile keeps me warm. Only if you knew that.

Im back in Loserville.

Half empty or Half full?

Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole, just like a faucet that leaks and there is a comfort in the sound.
But while you debate half empty or half full, it slowly rises, your love is gonna drown.

I used to be pretty god at maths. Not in the beautiful mind kind of way but enough to earn me As. Ok, maybe that was back in the days when I can think straight.

Years have gone by since i flick through a book to do all these little math equations. Yeah, there are far more important things in life now. Like thinking "what's for dinner?" and "oohh that's hot".

If my sister were to ask me to help out with her homework, I don't think I'll be able to. Ok, maybe I could if i try hard enough but i never did try hard enough in the first place.

Eventually, there comes a day when you need to recall your math solving prowess. As you sit there, thinking of all the formulas and see them flying above your head like a cheap TV show from the 80's only to realize that it does not add up. It does not make sense. You don't know a thing bout maths.

Then the denouement hit me.

It doesn't really matter what the figure is if you've found out that One plus One equals everything.

Best. Semua orang made time to go to his birthday. Even though the surprise plan was cut short due to some poor execution of plans, all of us had fun.

After the dinner we stayed back to watch the live band.

Then supper at Pelita KLCC.

The next day kena bangun pagi. Sigh!

Fly away.

I can fly. Well i think i can.

I've flown before. Well at least i felt that i have.

This state of elevation, though it may not appear to be one experienced in a physical sense has the same consequences.

If one flies to high, the air is going to get thinner. It will be suffocating. To make it worst, I'm notorious for my acrophobia.

My mind spinning in vertigo. Her smile and porcelain like skin infatuating. It's starting to hurt.

Gasping for air.

I remembered then, what a friend told me once.

"Jaga2 kalau terbang tinggi, nanti jatuh sakit"

Well there's the ultimate downside to flying. It either suffocates you or leave you splattered on the ground. Lifeless.

And I've been there too. Bits and pieces of me everywhere.

Now I have put myself together. Once again, I learn to fly.


What a day!

blog buih

On the way back from the bank, as I was driving leisurely along Jalan Ipoh, suddenly a part of the roof of an old building flew off.

It nearly hit me and my car if i didn't swerve.

Then, at the U-turn towards Jalan Pahang, as i was texting, waiting for the light to turn green, I heard a loud band. I thought a bomb exploded or something fell from the sky.

It was in fact, one of the tires of a lorry that has exploded. Nonetheless, the sound was very loud and traumatized me a bit.



Hari raya kedua, kamis atu family pergi Perth. Dah lama tak pegi holiday satu family. Persiapan pun lebih menarik kali ni sebab semua dah besar panjang. Satu je tak best, aku lupa bawak kad, takleh nak tenyeh.

Flight to Perth mengambil masa 5 jam. Duduk kat kerusi sempit Air Asia selama itu boleh menyebabkan sakit pinggang.
Cuaca kat Perth best. Sejuk tak sejuk sangat. Panas tak langsung. Makanan kat Perth ni senang mungkin sebab banyak orang Melayu, Indonesia dan orang Arab datang.

Tapi kalau tak jumpa kedai, kena tahan la makan Fish & Chips. Kedai terbaik untuk makan Fish & Chips adalah Cicerillos kat Freemantle.
Kerja aku kat Perth selain dari amik gambar banyak-banyak adalah bawak kereta. Kereta sewaan jenis Hyundai Elantra telah berjaya dipandu ke Mandurah dan juga sampai kat Caversham Wildlife Park. Pendek kata, aku dah takde masalah dah drive dalam Perth ni.

Namun, malan tidak berbau, CF card aku mengalami kecacatan lalu gambar untuk dua hari pertama telah lesap.
Seronok pegi Perth ni. Boleh 'chill' macam kangaroo ni.
