S4x02: "Trick" or Treat?

Trick-or-treating is a customary practice for children on Halloween seen in many countries. Children in costumes, either in large groups or accompanied by an adult, travel from house to house in order to ask for treats such as candy (or, in some cultures, money) with the question "Trick or treat?". The "trick" is a (usually idle) threat to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given. -wikipedia-

 It happens every year in the west countries where people celebrate things that they fear most. You see, the beauty of tradition is that more or less the concept is almost the same around the world; if you notice. Here in Malaysia, when it's Hari Raya children will be knocking door-to-door receiving "duit raya" (well muslims are encouraged to share their wealth among each other via donations) its just that we don't have the "trick" thing being applied; you know, we don't perform mischief on the homeowners here in Malaysia. Back then when was in my primary years, I love the door-to-door adventure. Some people gave me 1 ringgit, a few gave me 2 ringgit and most people give me 20-50 cents..hahaha.

Okay back to the Halloween thingy, the thing which I fear the most is this....

 if they come in low quantity such 1 or 2 its fine...I love holding em..but if...they come in a large quantity
like this...

OMG! just get them away from me. Haha...Yes people, I am a FEATHER+PHOBIC=FEATHEROPHOBIC (im not sure whether this exist or not)

When I was small (around 6yrs old), I was warded because of a bird (a pigeon to be specific). I was on my way back home, climbing up the staircase when my friend tried to scare me with a pigeon. Guess what? It worked! The moment the pigeon opened up its wing, I got so scared so I ran, stepped onto a mini water pool (or loopholes or I have no idea what its called in English) tripped and my head hit the staircase edge. Six stitches all the way onto the cut. What a memory, until today when it comes to anything with feathers? (chicken, birds, peacock)...ok im out. They might Wow me with their beauty but I will never ever dream of being close to one.

S4x01: Remember Mr. WOW?

-Let me begin this whole new season with a "short" reminiscence of a history of this one particular guy-

It was 1998 when he first learned the art of telling a story. He walked on a big stage facing a huge crowd of pupils and teachers, the microphone was already on. So he began with a story entitled "Harimau dan Tikus". There were so many punchlines that put the crowd into laughter but some giggled with joy. He made it; he won the competition. The following years, he took part in competition by competition until the year 2002 he , where made a remarkable achievement. The first boy of Sekolah Kebangsaan Batu Lanchang who made it to the Nationals for The Islamic Storytelling Competiton representing the Penang state. He didn't really win the competition but make it to the top 10. At the end of 2002, it was the Academic Day, he was awarded "The Most Outstanding Student of SKBL 2002". He was not just a good storyteller but also participated in sports, art performances, was a school prefect and many more. Of course, I really know this particular guy very well. He was standing outside the hall when the MC read his background and achievements; it was so touching. Then he went up the stage with his two parents. That was the greatest moment of his life, having his parents by his side holding his hands on stage. In 2003 to 2007, victories, achievements, etc are part of his life. Every year, there's always something new being achieved; from storytelling to dramafest to debate. Life for him was just great, or should I call it a Big Wow. BUT, of course; every victory comes with assisting pains and tears. I called him Mr. Wow back then.  Medals, trophies, certs. I wish I could remember the Mr. Wow. You see, when we grow up, life seems to steal a lot from us; instead it starts offering something new, each and everyday.So, I ponder....who is this Mr. Wow?..and here goes:

Years have passed, the trophy gets kinda dusty

~When I saw this..I realized that the Mr. Wow was me~

So, I promise myself; It's a whole new beginning and Mr. Wow will need to make his appearance very soon

F.Y.I: This is not a post about how great I am, I need to write things to see things; that's just me

Season 4 Premiere: Big WOW & Big OUCH?

In life, there's sometimes a short cut but most of the time you're gonna be needing a one
or maybe a few long route before achieving what you really want. You see; people look at things in many different ways.
In my life, I've met two special people.

1) The one who choose to do it right

Given in the condition of ones family, one still willing to work during semester break. Look after ones sibling since one is the eldest. Participates in many activities, still have time to hangout with friends. The best part, one indulges the pain all on ones own. 

Tell me something, how come people still do it right when life puts a big pressure on you. A serious salute to you friend.

2) The one who choose to do it one step less from the word right

Given in the condition of ones family, one decides to trade ones pride for a few moments of "joy". I know your in pain, I know its not what you want, I know you're trying to get yourself out of it. I bet you you feel the same's just...

Tell me something, are we designed this way? So that some can be the strong brave ones who can get through everything and the other

You all new season will be hell lot more difficult to go old feelings are back,
I know this is a test from God, a test to check on my progress..Have I been learning from life? Or Have I been enjoying too much?

This Whole New Season will be about me getting rid of the old feelings and this time I'll work very hard to do it right. Another thing is..if I wanna big WOW..I'll be needing A Big OUCH!!!

Ba & Mak

I call her Mak and I call him Ba. There are my mum and dad-my parents.

You see, I was alone in my room (not really alone, just to be dramatic) looking at my photo album. My friends Rhoe and Zaf told me decorate the pages of the album using my graduation flower`s petals which my parents bought for me and Rhoe. And then there is one picture of me in my parents' room, sitting on the praying mat with a "lebai" on my head; I was 3 or 4 years old at that time I guess. Looking at the old cupboard, the old TV sets parents are designed to bounce back I think, given in what we have today. Im scared, know being the child of hopes...Im worried if I cannot make them proud of me, Im afraid I'll screwed up...Ba and Mak, you guys are amazing people so as my siblings....I'll put this post on hold first..I saw Ms Izyan (Ecology lecturer) tgh on9 FB. I'll get back to this after my paper tomorw. Tata, readers~

Empire State of Mind Too

~to fulfil my BFF's request, here goes~

    One hand in the air for the big city,

    Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,

    No place in the world that can compare,

    Put your lighters in the air, Everybody says yeah~yeah~yeah

Oh yeah! Two papers done another five to go. Let's talk Kenegaraan Malaysia. After a very long argument with my bro regarding the importance of numbers, I finally learned that the result of long challenging debate is a MIGRAINE! FGS, I stayed up til 1.30 a.m and woke up at five but still I don't think the pain is gone, so I have to sleep again and wake up 1 1/2 hour later. Not enough time to study, pressured and stressed out AND I couldn't really answer the paper! So, I sat there for two hours wondering what happen during Kerajaan Kesultanan Melayu Melaka, what is Gagasan 1 Malaysia is about and some other questions which I find quite "interesting". Done with that, I had lunch with Kuvinn, Alex, Reva, Khirija and was fun though especially when we talked about our crazy journey with Konsortium Mutiara (Fast and Furious huh?).   
and here's the punchline:

Khirija said, "Are you guys sure? Saya rasa bila naik bas tu macam tengah dodoikan saya sampai tidur!"

What a moment, and then, I got this from Martina Irwan Khoo on her FB:

1. Violent 2.I'd marry you 3.Sweet 4.Beautiful 5.Talkative 6.Hot 7.Fit 8.Funny 9.Fun 10.Perfect Type 11.I love you 12.Missing you 13.Retarded 14.Blonde 15.The Best 16.Wish you were my boyfriend/girlfriend

some wrote 17, etc like OKAY, I get it..hahaha

Enough with that, lately I've been doing some reminiscing of the past quite a lot, hell lot. I remembered those days when my brother thought me how to really kick a football (and I disappointed him). I never really know how to kick a ball, maybe that's what keeping me from feeling like a real dude at this age *giggles. AND, another journey of the "Hey-lets-learn-how-to-kick-a-ball" happened! My other bro here in UMK tried to fill me in with such skills. Let see how far it'll work this time.
Another thing about me is, I don't like people talking about my soft part including my emotions or should I say love life. Stay out of it okay. So this one day, my pals talked about this girl which I really salute. She's brilliant, English educated, and should I say a perfect house maker from what I heard. 

Here's the thing, when comes to Fert and Love never asked or acquire for further details. I need to feel special, and have a special feeling for her. If the feeling of love can be discussed in a impromptu way, I guess it won't be that special anymore. So just let me and feelings alone for a while okay. And later my gym coach, football coach and also my brother did this piece of artwork on my lappy while watching some stuffs I have in my external hard disk.

Check this out!

Seriously, my wallpaper? 

You know one thing bro, I'll go for her in my own way. Thanx for the words of wisdom.

In a few days my exam will be over, and I'll be off to Penang my hometown. Time to start brainstorming ideas for the next season of Fertalicious So Delicious!
