Sedetik lebih

arini mood jiwangness sikit.
mungkin kerana majlis pertunangan yang akan berlangsung beberapa hari lagi kot..?
so, apa lah salahnya sekali sekala berjiwang-jiwangan ..
[poyo!] hehehe ;p

Sedetik Lebih - Anuar Zain

Setiap nafas yang dihembus
Setiap degupan jantung
Aku selalu memikirkanmu

Dalam sedar dibuai angan
Dalam tidur dan khayalan
Aku selalu memikirkanmu

Ternyata ku perlukan cinta dari dirimu sayang
Barulah terasa ku bernyawa

Kasihku…ku amat mencintai kamu
Kerana kau beri erti hidup
Ku kan terus mencinta sedetik lebih selepas
selamanya

Di kala penuh ketakutan dengan badai kehidupan
Ku bersyukur adanya kamu

Biarlah kehilangan semua yang dimiliki di dunia
Asal masih adanya kamu...


Sedetik Lebih is the official soundtrack for epic movie:

Merong Mahawangsa / The Malay Chronicles : Bloodlines
by KRU Studios.



Sedetik Lebih MTV



my own battle to fight


I'm in the middle of cleaning out my closet when Angah said that Dad wanted to talk to me.
i was like;
"huh? why..?"
and then followed by;
"omaigod! is he gonna have 'the talk' with me??"
-tapi dalam hati je la. haha-

i mean, come on..
don't you feel it weird when your Dad send your sister to tell you that he wanted to talk to you instead of come and talk to you by himself?
and to tell you the truth, i was kind of freak-out a bit just now.
(-__-)"

So anyhoo,
Dad told me about something something to me..
more like a 'hope'.. or a 'wish'.. something between those two.

i don't know how to react.
i don't know what to say.
i don't know what should i say.
and honestly, i don't know what to do.

i feel like a dumb.

everytime this subject is raised, i'll be the dumbest person ever lived.

I cry, and I pray and I beg..


".. So I cried, and I begged for you to
Love me love me
say that you love me
lead me lead me
just say that you need me
I can't care about anything but you.."

so i was in Abang's room.
tengok laptop terbukak so ai pun gatai tangan menggodeh-godeh laptop ini.

first thing first,
harus la cari folder lagu dulu sebab nak dengar lagu sesambil surfing kannnn..

of all folder yang ada, ku open la Justin Bieber.
hehehe.

FYI,
my 10 y.o baby brother hafal kot lagu JB.
(he call Justin Biebier as JB, okay.
ai pun tatau. siap blur lagi masa dia tanya "Along dengar lagu JB eh?"
which my response was "JB who..?"
haha. ketinggalan ketapi sungguh ;p)

anyway,
kunun-kunun nak keep updated with the trend (la sangat),
so ai pun buka la video clip Love Me...

quite layan jugak la lagu tu..
sampai la part chorus..

" Love me love me
say that you love me
fool me fool me

go on and fool me"


heyyyy!
ini adalah lagu Lovefool!!
that was like one of my fav when i was in high school!
(oh well, i have soooooo many fav songs- ngeee~)

ai suka the one from The Cardigans.
but ai also love JB's version too.
upbeat. so comelness. haha.

nih sumer adik aku [Haziq] punya pasal, k.
last time aku balik (that was last month),
dia main game sambil mulut rapping lagu Never Say Never (part Jaden Smith).
haiih.
masuk kelas tahfiz, tapi kemain laju lagi rapping.
hurm.

The Cardigans:




Justin Bieber:




date night


a lunatic on the loose.
muahahahha.

*will update later*

nite nite!

kisah aku #1

disclaimer: Sorry Cuk, pinjam title ko. hehe.

Tadi dalam berita, ada berita ngeri lagi. pasal bayi ditikam dan dibunuh.
Aku rasa ramai dah kot blog pasal ni. aku je yang malas nak komen. sakit hati dengan si celaka yang tau buat tapi tak tahu bertanggungjawab. oops. sorry. tak boleh cakap celaka sebenarnya. aku manusia tak layak mengcelakakan manusia lain. eh tapi, manusia ke yang suka-suka hati membunuh insan lain tu? hurm....

anyway.
so i was browsing to the world wide web.. jalan-jalan cari info untuk dishare dalam fesbuk. i was looking for 'Zaman Jahiliah', terjumpa pula blog 'mindapemudaislam'. (aku tak letak link sebab aku tamau ada trace sebab aku sangat segan blog nih ada banyak benda mengarut. huhu~)

baca punya baca... jumpa satu tajuk yang best : Wanita Yang Selalu Berbicara Dengan Al-Quran. Rasa macam nak nangis! huhu. bestnya la.. hafal satu Quran.. jawab soalan dengan ayat-ayat Quran.. hebat betul.. aku hafal apa..? hafal lagu. tsk! T___T

And then, there's another post before that, pasal Wali. terus teringat pasal last week. My colleagues and I borak-borak and somehow aku tersentuh pasal 'wali'. (yer, kadang-kadang kitorang suka share pasal hal-hal agama. apa.. pelik? nape? sebab aku banyak citer pasal entertainment eh? yeah yeah. my bad. hehe) tapi rerupanya kawan-kawan aku tu tatau pun pasal wali. so lepastu aku pulak yang macam segan sebab dorang nih cam baik-baik, alim pakai stokin semua.. so bila dorang tatau, i was like, eh ke aku yang silap info? T___T

Flashback to urm.. 15 years ago?

i was 13. duduk asrama (hostel).
Ayah visited me that weekend cos it was my birthday.
before balik, Ayah handed me a 'birthday present'.
oh itu la hadiah yang pertama dan terakhir, ok.
(maksud aku, pertama & terakhir bila dah masuk alam remaja laa. ngeh)

So lepas Ayah balik, aku pun dengan kadar segera cepat-cepat balik dorm, excited sebab tak sabor nak tengok hadiah apakah itu..











Rupa-rupanya Ayah belikan 'Diari Muslimah'.


it was like the best birthday gift EVER!
sebabnya..
Diari tu tebal..
sort of a planner..
pastu setiap hari ada Hadis Nabi.
which means, ada 365 hadis Nabi yang boleh dibaca setiap hari.

Dalam tu ada soal-jawab agama juga, terutamanya berkisar hal-hal wanita.
Selain tu, ada baaaaaaaanyak cerita berkaitan agama dalam diari tu.
Di antaranya.. Kisah Wali-Wali (yang dekat Tanah Melayu).
so dari situ la aku tau pasal Wali ni..
tapi jangan tanya aku la, pasal aku pun ingat-ingat lupa nama & kisah dorang. huhu~



I grew up reading fairytales. Ayah aku yang belikan Diari Muslimah tu, was the one yang belikan segala mak nenek buku-buku Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Peter Pan, etc masa aku kecik-kecik dulu. And my mom.. well.. she taught me all those kids rhymes... dan juga yang belikan buku Kelab Disney Malaysia tetiap bulan (eh ke dua bukan sekali ek? tak ingat) aku rasa, itu juga one of the reason kenapa minda aku kadang-kadang agak ke'Barat'an sket. oh yeah, that and the fact that dulu aku tadika omputih. hehe.

Btw, masa birthday kesayangan aku last 2 years, aku ingat nak belikan dia Diari Muslimah yang macam tu juga, tapi tak jumpa yang berkenan. So, kalau sesapa yang tau kat mana boleh cari Diari Muslimah yang comel & banyak info, tolong share ye.. tengkiu darls! :)

I was on the verge to miss you..


Yuna - Random Awesome

it all began
at the show one weekend
i was a friend of your cousin said
"hey how you've been"
And with your checkered shirt on
And my Reebok shoes on
Let's watch something random
turned to something awesome

And I smile I love no,
I laugh happier somehow
No I don't know what is up with me
I laugh too much recently
No, They don't know much about us
When we're exchanging glances
We'll figure out one day,
what happened on your 24th birthday

It all began with a simple confession
You had an urge to kiss me and
I was on the verge to miss you
and it happen,
no
we don't understand
no
i won't even budge
before we didn't hang out much
So save me in your playlist
so,
You wont forget this
And if this dont quite go your way
You'll still have me on replay

With your checkered shirt on
And my Reebok shoes on
Let's watch something random
turned to something awesome

And I smile I love no,
I laugh happier somehow
No I don't know what is up with me
I laugh too much recently
No, They don't know much about us
When we're exchanging glances
We'll figure out one day,
what happened on your 24th birthday




//note: the cutest and sweetest song from Yuna :)

ain't i been good to you?

yeah yeah. another song post.
haha. shut up.

urm.. am feeling a little bit of old school today..
and this song kinda makes me feel 'alive' somehow. hehe.
i don't know.. maybe it's because of the beat? like we're sorta flash back to the 70's.
i only like the first part and the chorus, though. makes me feel like wanna getting jiggy with it, 70's style. ngehngeh.

now let's get funk!
(^__^)v

ps: second part? yawn! :(

Ain't I Been Good To You - The Isley Brothers







fresh feeling


You don't have a clue
What it is like
To be next to you
I'm here to tell you
That it is good
That it is true

Birds singing a song
Old paint is peeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling
Words can't be that strong
My heart is reeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

Try, try to forget
What's in the past
Tomorrow is here
Love, whole sky above
Lighting your way
There's nothing to fear

Birds singing a song
Old paint is peeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling
Words can't be that strong
My heart is reeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

Some people are good
Babe in the hood
So pure and so free
I'd make a safe bet
You're gonna get
Whatever you need

Birds singing a song
Old paint is peeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling
Words can't be that strong
My heart is reeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

That fresh feeling
This is that fresh feeling

random rants

harini baru lah sempat betul-betul buat plan untuk EhemEhem. Sebelum ni M dah buatkan itinerary tapi kitorang tak fully agree lagi. Lepas jumpa Tonyot semalam baru la aku betul betul get the idea on traveling to EhemEhem.

Now aku tengah pening-pening lalat sebab masa tak cukup untuk cover semua tempat. Kalau ikut plan asal, aku nak selitkan one of the neighbour country, tapi gilaaaaa laaa, mana sempat. haha. mengong gak haku nih. hehe~

Susahnya bila minat segala benda nih. i'm torn between shopping and historical site. kan ke best kalau dua-dua nih berada di tempat yang sama. masalah aku sekarang, dua-dua tempat ni is in different place. adeiiiiii.

dan disebabkan banyak benda yang perlu diambil kira, sekarang mula la rasa macam nak pakai travel agent. tapi.. is it worth it? sedangkan boleh backpacker je kot. but then, ye ke okay kalau backpacker je? aku risau pasal masa je. takut tak boleh betul-betul on schedule. haa. see... kepeningan melanda diriku ini. aiyaaaa~

Option to solve this problem: tambah hari untuk holiday nih. hmm.. additional day = additional budget. hurm.. ok. scrap that. i think the best thing is to pick either one of the place so I we can have extra money for shopping. haaaa.. that's more like it! :)

....but then i'll be so sad if i don't get to go to one of the world's heritage...

now you see what my problem is? (-__-)"

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Ehem Ehem..



Hopefully everything will run smoothly according to plan.
insyaAllah...

now....
let's go read lonely planet.

Thanks Tonyot,
for all the information and most importantly,

thanks for lending me this lonely planet book.
jimat duet aku RM96.00. ngeeeee~
(^__-)v

I wanna be a billionaire so frickin' bad...

i love planning for holidays.
that's like, the only thing that keeps me going everyday.
the thing that makes every morning that i have to rise to work, worthwhile.

i'm not filthy rich.
heck, i'm not even close to rich.
i hafto to save up money to go for holiday.

insyaAllah, i hope i'll be able to set my foot on EhemEhem land.
it's gonna be a long holiday.
i'm not sure if my boss will let me have me-time, though.
but i've already bought the flight ticket..
so you know.. the damage is done. hehehe.
i'll go no matter what.
unless if he's willing to pay me back double-lah ye.
that's definitely a WHOLE different story. haha.


the place is Masya Allah, so amazing!
i wish i can stay there much longer than what we've planned.
too many places to go. too many things to do and try.
kinda Eat.Pray.Love.
only that;
Eat*Halal Food*.
Pray*to ALLAH*.
and Love..??
tetttttt!
well.. you never know..

hehehehehehehehehhehehehehehe.


and as for now,
i'm on a tight budget.
[seriously TIGHT since there's some personal/family things going on too.]
kinda hope i'll get a b0nu5 before flying to EhemEhem, but i doubt it.
we have just got a 5alary rai5e, so even if there's a b0nu5,
it's not gonna be in this next few months.
tskk.

oleh itu, marilah berusaha tidak bershopping untuk beberapa bulan ini ye....

urm..
boleh ke??

haiih.
i'm pretty sure it's gonna be hard- blood and tears.
(kahkah. over kannnn..?)

but for what it's worth, i'd say..
chaiyyooo!
aja aja fighting!
^___^

oh by the way,
i really, like, REALLY wanna go see Terima Kasih Cinta.


Align Center
siapa-siapa yang baik hati, tolong belanja saya.. boleh?

you know you love me ;)

'twas Saturday..

*caption to be updated later*


Friday:




i saw this shirt was sold at RM5. Without thinking much I bought it.
on Friday, i went to office wearing it.

it's not about the price.
it's about the message that matter the most, get it? ;p


oh. i wore a coat over that shirt cause i had a meeting that morning.
just because Friday is a casual day at our office, doesn't mean i hafto look so selebet pulak kannn.. ;)



Saturday:

Woke up early morning cause i need to book flight ticket to go to EhemEhem.
i was supposed to book it on Friday.
however, due to uncertainty of our plans,
i postponed it to Saturday.

So semalam, ALHAMDULILLAH..
flight ticket- done!
^__^
now tinggal nak plan for the itinerary je.
i made a stupid mistake actually.
patutnya boleh cover another country untuk holiday kali ni, tapi semalam macam terlupa..
(-_-)''


Afternoon:
Went out to see The Tourist with KM at Wangsa Walk.

and after the movie, she asked me to go shawl shopping with her cause she needs my opinion to buy which shawl that suits her.

urm..
aku bukan reti sangat bagi opinion and suggestion untuk orang lain.
untuk pakai sendiri-sendiri boleh la.. huhu.

tapi kalau kat opish pun, memang selalu jadik reference untuk colleague.
sometimes jadi 'cikgu' kat surau. sometimes jadi 'cikgu' kat toilet.
macam kelakar pulak rasa sebab haku rasa haku seorang yang selebet.
hahaa.

apapun,
aku cuma nak bagitau, yang aku 100% agree dengan post nn nih.
and personally,
pada aku, Ilsya Hijab memang terbaikkk!
and this comes from someone yang super cheap skate when it comes to buying tudung. hehehe.
i don't buy anything (tudung/shawl) over RM30, just so you know.
but for Ilsya Hijab: My only exception! :)

Yang bernombor tu semua my favorite shawl/hijab.
(My Ilsya Hijab: No. 1, 2 and 5)

//actually, pernah beli shawl from this one popular Art shawl shop.
quite expensive (for me).
tapi sebab suka dengan design art abstract, haku pun beli la....

my worst buy EVER!





see my eyes???
i don't know what happened actually.
tetiba je pedih pedih mata so had to take out my contact lens to avoid any complication whatsoever.
sebelah pakai contact lens, sebelah lagi tak.
lepastu kepala haku pening pasal sebelah rabun, sebelah tak. huhu~
(-__-)''

btw, mata masih merah harini (Sunday). hukhuk


@ Wangsa Walk.

later after wasting spending time here,
KM and I went to Jaya Jusco Alpha Angle cause she wanted to buy a swimming suit.

it's difficult to find a modest muslimah swimming wear, don't you think so?
something that is not sexy. not look like a clown. just nice.

i was lucky cause i found one.
tu pun dekat Mydin. adeiih.
major department store lain semua jual tahapehape.
hmm.. nama je Islamic Country... *sigh*.

//Sipadan Island, 2010

After finished buying the swimming suit,
we went to Uptown Danau Kota for the shawl hunting.
pergi sekejap je pasal haku tak larat due to the mata sakit in which membawa kepada sakit hati pasal tak nampak jalan. hahaha~

papepun, KM balik with happy face kerana shawl hunting beliau berjaya, thanks to me (poyo!).
kehkehkeh.

Sekian :)



The Tourist: It all started when he met a woman..



the storyline is expected,
but Johny Depp is totally a legend.............







*wait for it*










... ary!!

^___^

he's awesome as always!

for some, this movie is predictable.
you'd know what to expect next.
BUT.
seriously.
i really don't care about that 'cause
i just love love love The Tourist!
*suka johny depp je la tapinya... hehe*
:)


Angelina Jolie..
hurm...
hanya lah seorang perempuan cantik yang biasa biasa saje..
aku rasa watak dia tak lah sehebat dalam Mr & Mrs Smith.
in fact, aku rasa watak dia kali nih macam suam suam kuku saje.
cuma perlu tunjuk wajah cantik,
jalan ke sana ke sini...
menjadi head turning to both men and women.
like duhhhhhhhhh~
takde lah cantik nau
*Italicayat jeles ;p *

oh tapi kan, i love her dresses!
especially the one that she wore during the first scene.
nude color.
*refer to below picture*
sweeeeeeeet sangat!
even night gown dia pun haku rasa cantik jugak! huhu~



The Setting: Italy.


i likeeeeeee!!!!
hehehe.

pastu tetiba boleh pulak teringat The Italian Job.
Italy dan Mob Gang sesungguhnya tak boleh dipisahkan, no?
so that's kinda the whole point of the story.
Italy=Mob Gang=Interpol/Police/CIA/etc hunting for this unknown Pierce Guy.
(oh well, you know the drill.)

i don't want to do any kind of review for this movie, actually.
tak mahu spoilkan to those yang belum tengok.

cuma nak bagitau, my rating:
from 5 stars, i give this 4.5 stars.
-> mainly because of Depp,
an ordinary-selebet- Math teacher yang menjadi mangsa seorang perempuan cantik.
walaupun jalan cerita ada part yang tak logik dan mengarut,
tapi tapi tapi
sebab Depp, semuanya aku maafkan.
//haha. statement tak boleh blah.

Apapun,
i hope you enjoy this movie as much as I do.
so, Happy Watching!
:)

my BFF.. he's leaving on a jet plane..

i have a guy bestfriend.
his name is X. we've been friends eversince we were kids.
we went to kindergarten together, both of our parents are family friends so basically X and I were close like siblings.

Last week was X's last day in Malaysia.
He's going to US to further his study-->his Second Degree (yes. he's rajin like that).
And last Friday, he asked me to come over to his house to send him to KLIA.

So i went to his house.
Both of his parents were there. they looked both happy and sad (i'm not sure which one of those actually as X is the only child in the family). They were glad to see me, tho- Saying that after X's leaving for US, i hafto frequently come to their house... aiyakkkk~ (-__-)"

I went to X's room to help him packing his things.
oh don't worry. his room is kinda 'open-air', sort of like this:


(his room is the one on the upstairs. kinda like an attic. sorry i am too malas to cari his room picture in my drive. it's PNC anyway.)

yeah i know. it's not a typical room.
heck, their house is not even a typical house. his dad is an architect graduated from US (kot. i'm not sure of this. heh), so you know la kann .. how sometimes architect can be terlebih creative. ..and which is why they don't mind if we hang out in X's 'room'. taklei nak buat apa pun.

smart parents, huh? ;p

it felt so sad when i stepped into his room.

i'm going to lose my best buddy. my bestest friend. my BFF.
the one i talk to everyday..
the one who's always there for me..
makes me laugh with his jokes. and sometimes makes me sad with his stupid attitude..
(which we usually will laugh about it later on.)

i can never get mad at him.
not for long, at least.
he's such a clown! :)

paling sedih sebab dia pergi US.

i mean, why didn't he choose UK?? at least i know that i won't have any problem if i EVER going to tour Europe. betul tak? (selfish mode ON. hehe) But US?? hurm.. my least favorite place to go. but look on the bright side, i can ask him to bring me to LA. yeaahhh!! okay. dah tak sedih dah. hehe.

when he finished packing his bag, he suddenly said to me:
"You know what, i'm going to miss you"

and i jokingly replied:

"don't be. i need you there so we can be paparazzi together in Beverly Hills. You'll be my sidekick! "

he smiled. (but i swear i can see tears in his eyes!)




see the thing is, the reason he went to US is because of me.

well.. you know how guys are:
they just can't put a line between Friends and More than Friends. i think men are much complicated than women are, cause when women say 'We're just friends' and they (men) see it as 'Try harder'. haiih. We're on planet earth and yet we speak different language. hmm.

so anyway,
i drove him to KLIA using X's Jeep (JC).
langit cerah. nasib baik tak hujan.
oh well, it was his idea. he said that he's gonna miss Jeepers Creepers (i know, right?? crazzzzzy name for a Jeep, huh? ) so why don't we take JC for one last ride. ku ikutkan saje laaa..

we reached KLIA quite late.

i waited outside when he went for check-in.

and just when i saw him coming to me for goodbye, i saw another human being behind him.


it was He-Who-Can't-Be-Named.
Oh My Gucci!
damn damn damn!
he's going to see me with some other guy!

yeah i know he's taken, but i didn't see his darling, so who knows... i might stand a chance.
hahahaha. sengal jugak haku nih kan, sempat lagi nak fikir camtu. i'm such a jerk.


He-Who-Can't-Be-Named walked past by me, picking up his bag that he left on a chair somewhere behind me.
and because of X was there, i pretend that i didn't see him.
i bid goodye to X, wish him luck etc etc etc.. and then he left.

suddenly i felt a sudden pang inside my heart.
and before i knew it, i was overwhelmed with tears.
oh God, i hope he didn't see me like this.
i didn't want him to get the wrong meaning.

i didn't know what EXACTLY happened when suddenly i felt someone hugged me.






it was X!!!

i frozed, didn't know what to do.
when did he turn back??
and at that very second, million things running thru my mind all at once;- and one of them was:
"oh shoot! this is a sin. mati la haku kena rejam dengan batu!"

dan paling tak bleh blah, one of my thought was:
"demmit, He Who Can't Be Named is right behind me! oh mannnnn, there goes my chance.. slipping away right in front of me!
(or, it's actually, 'behind' la, kan?whatever)"


and guess what, at that very moment, a song was playing at the airport:

"Sebelumnya kau pergi.. Renungkan lah ku di sini..."



i was confused and was like "Apakah???"


and then realized..
"Ooo..aku mimpi rupanya.."

pastu terus la haku tersedar dari mimpi tersebut.


hahahahah.
ngek betul.
of all lagu, kenapakah lagu Nora yang keluar??

just so you know,
i don't usually dream when i sleep.
kalau ada pun, bila bangun je dah tak ingat.

but this dream..
it was so vivid... so real..
penangan ubat batuk hari jumaat aritu la kot.
ngam ngam bangun masa Subuh. sedar-sedar je, terus tergelak. haha.


FYI:

1) i haven't heard that Nora's song for a very longggggg time. i have no idea how it got into my dream. aku syak, itu terjadi pasal iklan-iklan flashback sebelum AJL25 aritu kot. hehe.

2) tatau la kenapa begitu tak semenggah mimpi tersebut. terasa macam Pertapa Gatal aka Jiraiya Sama la pulak. kahkah. i didn't read any romance books or watched romance movie. hari-hari baca Sidney Sheldon, which mostly pasal criminalogy. movie?? lagi la tader. drama?? the only drama yang haku tengok hari hari adalah Tiramisu (TV3).

ooh..right..
maybe pasal citer Tiramisu tu la kot...
citer tu kan ke sengal. macam ala drama Korea. hehe.

3) part yang last tu kan.. pasal yang sedih-sedih tu kan.. i think i was sad not because of X.. i mean, yes, i was sad because X's leaving but i think MOSTLY i was sad because of He Who Can't Be Named..


crap!

bangang punya mimpiiiiiiiiiiiii! kenapa laaaa tetiba ada dia. adeihhhh~!
:(

Wordless Wednesday #4

Monday, January 10, 2011

Maafkanlah ku tak bisa hidup tanpa kamu

okay. the title itself pun dah menunjukkan yang ni aku kipas-susah-mati Faizal Tahir [FT].
hehehe

And as mentioned in previous entry, obviously aku frust FT tak menang in Top 3.
Dah la aku tengok AJL25 semata-mata FT .. yang lain-lain macam Yuna, Bunkface, API pun aku suka jugak, tapi not enough untuk buat aku rela bersekang mata menonton AJL.

and oh, first time in urm.. 2?(or is it 3 years?); aku tak tertidur depan TV masa tengok AJL.
lol.
the 'TRON' stage was huge!
and credit goes to the Orchestra Team for their amazing performance.

Yuna was awesome as always. Shahir- sebab dia laaa aku ngantuk sekejap aritu..
And eventhough performance FT for Hanyut memang wah-hebat-gila, for me.. aku tetap suka Bunkface.
cool je perform, macam tengok konsert. sempoi tapi best.
rasa happening gila.
which is aku rasa macam ni la yang sesuai untuk AJL.
Ye la.. dah nama pun Anugerah Juara Lagu kannn..

Teringat kata several artis in Twitter;
AJL patut tukar jadi 'Anugerah Juara Lakon' or 'Anugerah Juara Gimik', and etc.

i couldn't agree more..


Aku rasa aku tak pernah kot complaint pasal result AJL (ke pernah, tapi aku lupa?hm. goldfish betul la aku nih. ;p) tapi result kali ni memang aku tak boleh blah. But then again, maybe aku bias sebab aku nak Faizal Tahir menang. hehe. Kalau ada lagu lain yang lagi best daripada FT pun, aku tetap nak kata FT nombor 1 jugak. lagu-lagu lain semua stand behind lagu-lagu FT. muahaha.
yeah i know. sungguh tidak adil. =p

but seriously, i think he deserved to win one of the Top 3.
Hanyut saaaaaaangat la best.
the lyric.. the melody.. the music arrangement.
tak puas dengar, okay.
Both Faizal Tahir & Audi Mok are the most genius,talented musician in Malaysia.
Together, FT + Audi Mok = Unbeatable! (as tweeted by Ahmad Izham Omar)

Lagu-lagu lain pun best juga. Like, Drama King, Extravaganza. Heck, even Berlari pun aku layan jugak. huahuahua. Tapi honestly, yang menang No 1 tu memang tak termasuk dalam list aku laaa. huhu~

Host AJL - sangat lame!!
like seriously, lawak diorang kali nih tak menjadi. The only time yang buat aku tergelak, was when FBI cakap "shut up tak shut up (diam tak diam)" - ahahhhaha. yang tu memang sengal gila.
:D

Apa pun, congrats to all winner.
Takpe FT, kita cuba lagi next year
(wahh, KITA????tetiba. hahahaha).




Hanyut - Faizal Tahir

Harus bagaimana lagi
Dan terus begini
Dengarkan aku
Lihat ke mataku

Cukup sudah kau menghukum
Salahku tetap salahku
Benarkan ku berbicara
Agar bisa pulih semua

Namun harus sampai bila
Kau kan diam seribu bahasa

Chorus
Maafkanlah ku tak bisa hidup tanpa kamu
Fahamilah ku tak mampu terus tanpa kamu
Bagaimana ku nanti
Bila tiada mengganti
Yang ku ada hanya kamu saja

Saat mata terpejam
Hanya kau ku terbayang
Menghapus semua segala rasa di jiwaku

Saat mata terbuka
Kamulah yang pertama
Tak mampu aku
Bayangkan
Hidup tanpa dirimu

Chorus

Aku memang bersalah
Selalu saja mengabaikan mu
Dan tapi dah ku sedari
Segala perit kau lalui
Ku terlupa kau terluka

Dan memang selalu
Aku bersalah
Selalu saja mengabaikan mu
Meninggalkan mu
Dan tetapi itulah aku sedari
Segala perit yang kau lalui
Kerna diriku yang terus hanyut

Malaysia : 10 Great Outdoor Adventures

I'm pretty sure by now everyone (in M'sia) is talking about last night Anugerah Juara Lagu 25 (AJL25) performance. Honestly, i am quite frustrated that my favorite:
Faizal Tahir | Yuna | Bunkface | API didn't win any of the Top 3.

Thank goodness Faizal Tahir the Super Rockenstein saved the day by winning the Showmanship Category, tho i honestly think he deserves more than that. But anyway, i'll talk more about this later (macam biasa, kalau saya rajin. hehe)

For now, let's talk about this post title, okay? :)

I saw this link tweeted by Lonely Planet and i thought of sharing this with you guys.
Check it out!

10 great outdoor adventures in Malaysia
Paul Bloomfield
Lonely Planet Author

There’s more than one Malaysia. There’s the modern, well-ordered state boasting the Petronas Towers, those twin rocket-ship behemoths in capital Kuala Lumpur. There’s bustling multicultural Malaysia, an ethnic and culinary mélange into which Malays, Chinese, Tamils and numerous indigenous groups contribute cuisines and customs. But there’s still – thankfully – wild, untamed Malaysia: jungle and reef, mountain and rainforest, river and ridge. Few countries in South-East Asia – or anywhere – match the range of opportunities for getting adventurous outdoors.

1. Dive the Semporna Archipelago, Sabah - Checked!

Any spot described by scuba supremo Jacques Cousteau as ‘an untouched piece of art’ is pretty special. A submarine adventure around Sipadan – an elliptical island atop an oceanic pinnacle – takes the breath away: whale, hammerhead and reef sharks, manta rays, barracuda and turtles are regular dive buddies.

2. Surf the breaks of Cherating and Tioman Island - Checked!

The swells of Indonesia to the south grab the headlines, but there’s ample action on Peninsula Malaysia’s east coast, too. Breaks around Cherating and off eastern Tioman see waves from across the South China hold five or six feet – plenty for both beginners and more-ambitious surfers.

3. Go batty in the caves of Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak

It’s a fine three-day trek through rainforest to the pinnacles, but the showpieces of the park are subterranean: the vast caverns, including the largest open to tourists – 2km-long Deer Cave. Come to discover what two million bats look (and smell) like.

4. Hike through the jungle of Endau-Rompin National Park

Tigers. Elephants. Tapirs. Leopards. Endangered Sumatran rhinos. They’re all here – though admittedly tricky to spot among the 870 sq km of lush lowland forest. A hike isn’t about ticking off species but, rather, camping in the primordial woodland, ducking under remote waterfalls, and watching for birdlife and monkeys.

5. Raft the Sungai Padas, Sabah - Checked!

The Class I-II rapids of the Kiulu River are a mere nursery for the big adrenalin-pumper: Padas, with whitewater pushing III-IV over the 30km course. During breathers, grab the chance to gaze into the rainforest lining the river.

6. Wander among the tea plantations of Cameron Highlands

For a very English adventure – tea and strawberries: it could almost be Wimbledon – take to the trails around the hill station of Cameron Highlands. Amid the pleasingly geometric forms of the bushes of the tea plantations, stretch your legs in the cool high-level air for views of peaks and waterfalls.

7. Spot orang-utan from boat level on the Sungai Kinabatangan, Sabah

You could spot your ginger-mopped primate cousins at the rehabilitation centres of Sepilok or Semenggoh – but there’s nothing like delving into the jungle for some real wildlife-watching. Take an early morning boat ride on the Kinabatangan River for the chance of spotting shy pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys and vivid birdlife.

8. Hike to the longhouses of the Kelabit Highlands, Sarawak

The chance to meet the indigenous inhabitants of Borneo and stay in their traditional longhouses is one of the key reasons for trekking into the steamy interior. Headhunters they may no longer be, but meetings with Borneo’s tribespeople still offer unique insights into fast-eroding cultures.

9. Snorkel the reefs of the Perhentian Islands - Checked!

These almost stereotypically tropical-paradise islands off the peninsula’s north-eastern coast tempt with sand and snorkelling. From the fine beaches it’s the work of a moment to don mask, snorkel and flippers and drift over colourful coral. The islands are also a great place to learn to scuba dive, with varied sites and reasonable prices.

10. Summit Mt Kinabalu, Sabah - Checked!

This huge grey lump of granite, soaring to a sharp 4,095m peak, looms large over northern Borneo; the two-day climb requires steely determination to tackle hours of solid uphill – but dawn views across to the Philippines on a clear morning offset even the most burning thighs.

TTJL says:
Just so you know, Malaysia consists of 13 states and 3 federal territories. Each state has it's own amazing and interesting places to go to. and gosh! this is so embarassing; eventhough i've been to 12 out of 13 states (Sarawak, wait for me, yeah!) there are still a lot more places that i have yet set my foot on, including Cameron Highland! iskh. memalukan sungguh. ;p

Cameron Highland is not far from Kuala Lumpur, fyi. entah bila entah nak sampai sana. *sigh*

privacy


so i've been switching off my handphone since Friday night..

the reason?

sebab batuk yang tak berkesudahan menyebabkan hari Khamis (night) aritu aku terpaksa took the cough syrup and pastu.. ape lagi.. haa.. mata nih macam dah kena gam.

so on Friday, i was like a zombie at the office.
i can't keep my poor eyes open!
like seriously..
i can't concentrate on my job..
and all i could think of was that,
I HAVE TO GET SOME SLEEP!!!
otherwise, i'm gonna be loco!

so balik kerja,
lepas Isyak terus aku ZzzzZzZz.
and i switched off my phone cause i didn't want to be disturbed.


and i continue switching off my phone until today (Sunday).


and yesterday,
somebody gets mad because of it.

hurm..
perlu ke aku justify kenapa aku off handphone?

i don't mean to sound harsh,
BUT
sukati aku la kan.. tepon aku.. nape pulak nak terasa hati bagai..?
i mean.. hello..
you should respect other people privacy.

i've been very busy ever since last 2,3 weeks.
i was barely at home on weekend.
so all i really want right now is to be alone this weekend.

banyak kerja nak kena buat -
spring cleaning, tido (qada' tido. hehe), swimming, reading, relaxing.
i just want to spend the time by myself.

i don't want to pick up any phone calls-
i don't want to go out -
i really really want to be ALONE.

it's nothing to do with other people.
purely just me.


sampai sekarang aku tak faham kenapa orang tu perlu rasa marah/terasa hati.

Season of The Witch : The Review


I had a great start for year 2011;
Thanks to Nuffnang for the ticket giveaway contest, that i was able to watch the Premiere Screening of Season of The Witch last night.
ohhh yeahhhh! ^__^

so now, let's talk about Season of The Witch, shall we..? =)

Note:
this review is based on my own point of view.
different people, different taste, different opinion.
so you might not agree with whatever written in here.



if you watch the trailer, you'll see that this movie is kind of spooky.
well, at least that's what i thought when the first time i saw the movie trailer.
but hey, it's about WITCH - so you should know that basically WITCHCRAFT involves black magic, evil, etc etc; which made me interested to watch this movie in the first place.
and plus, there's Nicolas Cage in it. :)

To my disappointment, Nicolas Cage's character in this movie wasn't that great. in fact, i think he's not suitable in carrying that character. i like that witch girl. seriously creepy . psycho gila.

oh. i should get into that part later.

so anyway, this movie is about two ex-crusader Behman (Cage) and his side kick, Felson (Ron Perlman- Hellboy) returned to their country for 'retirement', only to find their homeland was infected with a mysterious disease (Black Plague). While looking for food in one of the town, they were arrested. When a priest came to know that Behman & Felson were Knights, he quickly informed his dying Cardinal about them.

To cut the story short, Behman & Felson were asked by the Cardinal to deliver a girl ( whom the religious masses believed is a witch responsible for the Black Plague) to this far-away place to get a fair trial: whereas the monks will determine whether she's guilty for being a witch or not.

And here is what i found interesting about this movie : i kept wondering whether The Girl is innocent or not, which is the main point of the movie.

The storyline is kind of boring, at first.
it's a typical movie, you can predict what will happen next.

HOWEVER, it's not that typical.
The ending is kind of expected, but also kind of unpredictable.
haa.. pening tak?
predictable but unpredictable.
expected, but unexpected.
hahahaha.

the movie start off great, but then it became boring when it shows the battle - which i don't think is necessary. sekejap je would be enough.
tak perlu la tunjuk lama-lama kot. mengantuk gila.

But just when i was about to fall asleep, the exciting part slowly climbed when the journey start.
And i was no longer a sleepyhead.

i really really like Claire Foy (The Girl). she carried her character very well in this movie. she really knows how to play with emotion. memang sangat saiko, okay. sometimes she looks like a very sweet innocent girl, and sometimes, she really does looks like someone whose been practicing magic.

is she innocent?or is she not?
that's the main question.

Nicolas Cage?
hurm.. takder pun takpe. (i don't even understand why he agreed to take this role!)
lebih kurang macam Inglourious Basterds la - Brad Pitt takde pun takpe sebab ada character lain yang lagi best dan lagi mengancam daripada Pitt.

And for what it's worth, i'd say:
thank goodness KM asked me to crash at her place last night after we watched the movie cause if she doesn't, i'll probably can't sleep last night!

My verdict : 3 stars (out of 5)



and again, Thank you Nuffnang for the 2 tickets!!!
lain kali sila la buat lagi !! hehe
