Fast Food

Picture says it all*... location is @ Sungai Pinang food court (at the corner beside the flyover at Jelutong Expressway)


*(Not applicable to bananas/people who don't read Chinese)

Technically, the interpretation is correct though. You don't have to wait if you eat zhap farn @ mixed rice, do you? It's fast right?

20Cents: Reunion

It's been more than 2 years since that fateful day in Starbucks. A lot of things happened in between. They did make massive efforts to maintain the long distance relationship. It's tougher than the usual tough. He can't afford to call her on the phone very frequently due to the costly roaming charges. And the secrecy from the family means he can't do much webcam sessions with her at all.

She settled down in Melbourne well, graduated, and got a job offer from a design firm there. And there's this guy who treats her super nice. She was torn between being faithful and being lonely. In the end, he decided that it was best for her to move on, and encouraged her.

He tried to move on himself, and for the majority of the time, he managed quite well. They still kept in touch though, and they turned from lovers into best friends.

----------

Then, one day, she called him.

"Gor! I'm back home la!"

"Ooo.. ok.. hahaha go shower la! Call me for what? Phone money too much?"
"I mean, I'm back home in Malaysia. I came back for holiday.."

"Oh...."

"I'll be around for 2 weeks, let's meet up ok?"

"Of course ok la, when do you wanna meet up?"

"Hmm... today can ah?"

End up, he took leave from work that day, and they went to do something that they never did together before.


He didn't have a car back then, but now that he's working, he got himself a second hand Kancil. They went drive drive to Putrajaya.


And walk walk after seeing enough from the car...


And also talk talk while walk walk-ing...


For that few hours of a day, it felt like how it used to be, how she had never left at all...

And time passed quickly...

They went for dinner at Teppanyaki, Jusco Cheras Selatan... and they shared the food and drinks, just like how it used to be as well...


Out of a sudden,

"Gor, I feel tired of Melbourne."

"You could always come back for holidays, you know. Work is stressful wherever you are."

"It's not the work. It's something else."

"Hmm?"

"I'm thinking that maybe I wanna move back to Malaysia for good."

". . . . . ." what the fuck is she talking about??

"I got into a quarrel with him."

"Hah?? You quarrel with boyfriend, then you wanna come back?? Don't be rash la, you'll make up for it soon right?"

"Actually, I get into a lot of quarrels with him. We quarreled a lot usually also, but it's getting more and more intense lately."

"Take it easy la... couple sure got quarrel quarrel one... he sayang you one right? You've been through thick and thin overseas together."

"Gor... actually, I miss you..."

". . . . . . . . . . . ."

"Gor..."

"You know, I'm speechless... what are you talking about? Don't surprise me by saying these things..."

"I'm not kidding. I thought I moved on, but really, I've never stopped missing you. I know you feel the same too. Why don't we start again? I'll come back and stay in KL."

"Please... you know I miss you too, but please, stop saying these things. You are just in a bad mood because of the quarrel now, calm down first ok? Don't think of doing something rash, you will regret it later one."

"Gor.... why?... Have you move on also?"

"That's not the point. You shouldn't be worrying about me. What's most important is what you really want. Remember why you go to Melbourne? Are you willing to give it up now?"

"Erm..."

"I know you don't really wanna come back and be based here. You won't get an offer here that pays you half of what you get over there. It's a big decision, and one which I think you have a higher probability to regret if you make it."

"Won't you miss me at all? Don't you want me anymore?"

"Well..."

"Well? I miss you all the time, I really wish that I didn't get involved that deeply with Melbourne."

"But you did, that's a fact. And... and... I think I've coped quite well so far without your presence."

"Oh..."

"Silly girl... don't stress yourself up about the past la. Take your time to relax, I'm sure you'll feel better by the time you head back to Australia :-)"

"Maybe..."

----------

She left 2 weeks later...

My Personal DNA



About You:
You Are An Inventor


> Your imagination, self-reliance, openness to new things, and appreciation for utility combine to make you an INVENTOR.
> You have the confidence to make your visions into reality, and you are willing to consider many alternatives to get that done.
> The full spectrum of possibilities in the world intrigues you—you're not limited by pre-conceived notions of how things should be.
> Problem-solving is a specialty of yours, owing to your persistence, curiosity, and understanding of how things work.
> Your vision allows you to identify what's missing from a given situation, and your creativity allows you to fill in the gaps.
> Your awareness of how things function gives you the ability to come up with new uses for common objects.
> It is more interesting for you to pursue excitement than it is to get caught up in a routine.
> Although understanding details is not difficult for you, you specialize in seeing the bigger picture and don't get caught up in specifics.
> You tend to more proactive than reactive—you don't just wait for things to come to you.
> You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style.
> You tend to believe that things happen for a reason, and that not everything is under our control.

How You Relate To Others:
You Are Generous

> Your awareness of those around you, along with your nuanced perceptions of the world at large, makes you the GENEROUS person that you are.
> You value time to yourself and understand how rich your private world can be—you know that you don't have to go wild to have a good time.
> You are excited and energized by ideas and often enjoy things more through observation than through experience.
> This tendency gives you an appreciation for different perspectives and opinions about the world.
> Being as aware of others as you are doesn't mean you find it easy to trust them immediately—this is something that happens more slowly for you.
> Despite this, you are aware of the complexities of many situations and are reluctant to pass judgments on others.
> Although you have fewer friendships than some people, those that you have are meaningful and are important to you.
> You value spending time alone—it is while reflecting on the world around you that you often learn something new about yourself or begin to understand something that's been bothering you.

Only In 1Malaysia!!

I was reading this in Niamah!!! and I suddenly thought of another scenario, rather spontaneously...
----------

You see a Chinese bloke hanging out for lunch with a bunch of Malays, they are all having beef, he can't eat beef due to religion constraints (cow is a sacred animal for Buddhists, and Hindus lah), so he smile smile and order chicken dish, and the Malays also eating happily without perasan anything...

Then you see a Malay bloke hanging out for lunch with a bunch of Chinese, they wanted to go to the nearby coffee shop to have the famous siew yoke @ roast pork rice. "Erm. Cannot lah, the Malay cannot eat pork due to religion constraints (pig is dirty for Muslims), we have to take care of his feelings, this is very sensitive.", so they go to McD for lunch...

----------

They can eat our sacred animal openly and we don't (and are not supposed to) give a shit about it, but we cannot eat animals that they consider dirty in close proximity from them.

What??!! I wanna pollute my own body, cannot meh?? Non of your business what! Why you care??

Darn... makes me feel more racist today...

Only in 1Malaysia!!!

No Facebook Please

People always wonder, why don't I jump onto the Facebook bandwagon??

Well, I'm not quite sure exactly why myself...

Let's just say that, I'm not easily attracted to something, but when I do I tend to be very stubborn and stick around for longer than necessary...

Let's just say Facebook and Friendster falls on the former, and football falls on the latter...

Pecah

6.10PM : Preparing to cook dinner...


6.12PM : Hand phone rang. Rushed back to the room to answer the call.

I think the egg must have overheard the movie playing in my laptop..

Autobots! Roll Out!

6.13PM : Went back to the kitchen to see that my egg decided to heed Optimus Prime's call, rolled out onto the floor and transformed into this,


Pecah, burst, broken, gone, no more...


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ども,

ありがとございます。。。


It's the heart that matters... Thank you :)

Seems like your camera works fine upon return...

The In Season

They say that the economy is not going to come back anytime soon, that the current situation is the new economy climate, that cutting costs is the sensible thing to do, where a reduction is termed "as usual"...

It seems like not just the economy is as such, even cutting down on favorable human feelings and emotions is just "as usual" as cutting costs are...

Do you know?

Do you know this guy?


Do you know Khalil is not by any chance, a random name that he picked? There's a reason why he use this Melayu-ish name...

No... not because he got married to a Melayu...

This guy is actually a Baha'i, which means followers of Baha'ullah. Not sure what this religion is, some kind of religion potpourri created by this Baha'ullah guy in the 19th century in Persia...

And, contrary to popular belief, or what the female fans want to believe, Khalil is not pronounced as Ke-lile, the correct pronunciation is Ha-lil...

Yes, it is supposed to sound like the name of... of... of the majority race of our beloved 1Malaysia...

Don't hate me girls, just stating the fact...
