Broken light.

Last night I slept on the other side of my king-sized bed, which was extremely unusual thing for me to do. Every time I slept on my usual side of bed, I know I'm at the right place, and I fall asleep just like any other nights. But last night, felt like a new place, out of place, misplaced.

I can feel the coldness of the mattress. I can't smell my own smell but only the smell of someone who just left me, alone in the coldness and the darkness of the night.

I have never felt so alone for the longest time. So alone I can hear my own heartbeats. Apart, unaccompanied, unattended.

I feel like I'm an exile in my own world.

Life, is fragile. Identity, is fragile. Heart, is fragile. Just like glass; once broken, and even then mended, can never and will never look the same, anymore. But we live with the facts.

Someone told me,

"You make daring choices all the time. In fact, you are the most daring person I've ever known. If you can make those kind of choices, you have to live with the consequences."

Lightning struck once. Lightning struck twice. Lightning will never stop striking you, but once it stops, it's gone forever.

Right now, I just want to stop writing and isolate and detach myself from everyone. My light is BROKEN.

Dem mi!

Dilema bertudung.

Aza menggeliat sepuas-puasnya. Nasib baik tiada siapa nampak cara Aza menggeliat. Boleh jatuh sahamnya.

Tiba-tiba Aza teringat kisah semalam. Airmatanya terus berlinang. Terasa amat sayu dan sedih, "Salah ke kalau aku nak pakai tudung? Kenapa daddy tak benarkan?"

Buat pengetahuan semua, bapa atau daddy Aza ini jenis orang yang sangat sibuk, tapi bukan penyibuk. Businessman, haruslah sentiasa sibuk. Ibu Aza atau lebih manja dipanggil mummy sudah tiada, kembali ke Rahmatullah lama dahulu. Sungguh pilu dan menyedihkan.

Dari jendela, kelihatan cahaya matahari mula menjelus di celah-celah langsir tingkap. Jam sudah menanjak 11.00 pagi. Perut Aza mula berbunyi, terasa lapar.

Aza bangun mencapai tuala, masuk ke bilik mandi.

Selepas mandi, Aza membelek-belek tubuhnya di cermin, "Alangkah lebih cantik kalau aku bertudung. Aku tak peduli! Aku akan protes habis-habisan kalau daddy tak kasi juga bagi pakai tudung. Aku sanggup lari dari rumah. Demi kebaikan yang aku pilih. Lantaklah dengan ahli keluarga aku yang lain. Semuanya tak nak pakai tudung! Tapi aku nak!!!!", getas hati Aza. Dia nekad.

Aza turun ke bawah. Baru saja dia hendak membuka tudung saji di atas meja, terdengar bunyi kereta memasuki garaj. Aza menjenguk melalui tingkap dan nampak daddy-nya balik, "Aikkkk, apahal daddy balik awal hari ni???"

Dalam masa yang sama, Aza merasakan inilah masa yang terbaik untuk mendesak daddy-nya supaya membenarkan Aza memakai tudung. Now or never!

Bila daddy membuka pintu, Aza bersalam dengannya dan tanpa lengahkan masa, Aza membuka mulut, "Daddy, cheq nak pakai tudung. Cheq nak!"

Daddy terus jegil mata sebesar-besarnya. Macam ada api keluar!


Daddy hayun penampar ke muka Aza! Tersepuk Aza di celah set sofa.

"Aduhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... Sampai hati daddy! Cheq tau la daddy rasa malu kalau cheq pakai tudung. Salah ke kalau cheq nak tutup aurat cheq? Kalau adik dan abang tak nak...."


Daddy labuh pelempang ke muka Aza sekali lagi sebelum dia sempat menghabiskan ayat.

"Hang jangan nak bagi aku malu naaaa! Hang jangan nak buat pasai! Hang nak pakai tudung buat apa??? Dah 100 kali aku habaq, LELAKI TAK PAYAH PAKAI TUDUNG, LELAKI TAK PAYAH PAKAI TUDUNG!!! Tu la, bila time kelas agama, hang ponteng! Nama hang aku boh "RAZALI", tup tup lekat jadi AZA saja! Memang la dalam rumah ni semuanya tak bertudung sebab adik hang tu lelaki! Abang hang pun lelaki jugak!"

Aza yang tersepuk di celah sofa, terus menangis tersedu-sedu. Sudahlah sakit kena tampar, kena pelempang. Tudung pun tak dapat juga.



Cilakak betul!

Placebo effect and the brain

This is agreeably late announcement, but it's still not too late to join and rocking this show.

Title says it all.

One of the very good bands that's still exist now.

Report will probably follow after the show later tomorrow night.

There's a reason why I posted a music video by Placebo sometime last month.

Sejahtera Malaysia #1: Unity Bullets

Another busy but boring day.

The not-so-good thing is that, I only know how to use Paint. I don't know shit about Adobe Illustrator nor any of the shits. Hence the bad quality when I saved it into JPEG format. But it's okay, I'm just bored so I don't really care about the quality.

Anyways, I don't know what do you think about this artwork, but what I want to tell is that, the only way for us to have a peaceful, prosperous and progressing country is by putting our country's fat, neo-fascist "Hitlers" to sleep with the Unity Bullets.

The HEART Truth.

I am using a tablet notebook PC (HP TouchSmart tx2) but funny thing is I hardly 'touch' the screen. Not really used to it, as I thought it'd be cool just to have it back then. Served my ego.

Actually I did some 'handwriting' with my touch screen before this, more like a test-run on my notebook. Awfully handsome handwriting I have, you know. Check it out

Anyways yesterday I made some artworks. Been trying to sharpen up my drawing and painting skills you know. Not sure if it's working out right for me but I'm pretty sure I'll still be having plenty of time playing around with it.

Here you go.

To be honest, I took this idea from HERE. You see I have a weak sense of drawing/painting, therefore I needed some "inspiration" to do something. But hey, at least I drew/painted them myself okay? And I did some improvisations as well. Not too bad, I think.

Now I can hear my notebook whispering to my ears (and I can't get over it) asking me to keep on touching its body, "touch my body... touch my body..." just like this guy/girl:

15 Ways To Get Smarter (and wiser)

Happy Monday.

Intelligence is beauty and knowledge is power. So, seek knowledge and be intelligent. Here’s how you do it.

1. Think outside the box
Have you ever got stuck trying to solve a problem? Well, you’re not alone. “For every problem, there is a solution” seem very far from truth when we found ourselves in this situation. I used to remember what my father told me, and this is probably the best advice he has ever given me. “When you are stuck trying to solve a problem, take a step back and look at it from different angles.” I don’t quite get it at first. “Take a step back… you mean literally? How does that help?” Soon I realized that what he actually meant was to look at the problem from an outsider point of view, without any assumptions made, that had me reached the dead end. In short? Think outside the box.

2. Don’t make assumptions
We all seem to have a tendency to make assumptions (and yes, I do realize this is an assumption as well… ). It seems to be in our blood to relate everything based to our experiences and opinions. Don’t. Discounting ideas or solutions just because you find it ridiculous doesn’t mean it really is. Assumptions are the one that had us stuck inside the box. In order to think outside the box, we need to consider every possible explanation. But that can only be done once we get rid of our assumptions that hinder fresh insights.

3. Ask questions
In my opinion, this is the best way to gain knowledge. Ask questions. You can ask others or to yourself. I often use this method to come up with topics to write. If you put your brain into work by asking questions and actually try to solve it, I promise that you’ll be surprise of what you are actually capable of. Well, if you haven’t already. And this is exactly what every bright mind has in common. They ask tons of questions. Scientist, writer, entrepreneur and investor are just some of them. The 6W's (why, what, who, when, where and how) makes a great companion if you know when to use it.

4. Ask the RIGHT question
But you can’t just ask any questions. Asking the right question gives us the answer we seek. Ask the wrong question however, and you’ll end up wasting your time. I find “why” and “how” very relevant to my work so I use it as often as I could. It might be the same for you, or it might not.

5. Dare to differ in opinion
We all have this herd mentality in us. Sure, they work to protect us. But there’s something you need to understand. The opinion of the majority doesn’t mean that they are right, it only means that they are popular, and nothing more. But surely they have good reasons to have the same opinion. Fair enough. But you need to understand that, we men, are easy to be manipulated by statistical numbers, the authority (government, the mainstream media and the likes) and words like “the majority…”, “most people…”, etc. Sound familiar, don’t you think? These days, I only believe what make sense to me. For everything else, I don’t bother.

6. Understanding the motive
For every action, there’s a motive behind it. Most are good, and cause no harm, and then there are some that are not. An example would be the time you’re helping your mother out with the dishes. Your motive would be for her to do less and make her happy. While it’s not important to pay attention to every motive behind an action, especially when it comes to people we can trust. After all, you don’t want to be a calculative person. However, it is still important to be aware of it. Just make sure you remember, that when things look fishy, always run the opposite direction.

7. Read books
Books are a great resource for knowledge. For the average price of a book, the things that we can actually learn from them are far more valuable. Besides, reading is always a good habit to instill, plus it’s convenient.

8. Know you are
We cannot escape from confident now can we? Even when it comes to being smart, you must first acknowledge that you are. It’s not about being overconfident or conceited for that matter. But in order to have the courage to differ in opinions, you must first have the confident to believe that yours are right.

9. Free of emotion
A good decision making is one which is free of bias and emotions. I think it’s safe to say that we all have acted on impulse at least once or twice up till now. It’s just like gambling. Sometimes, you got lucky and you hit the jackpot. Most of the time however, things don’t turn out pretty. Which is why, going through rational thinking process in making the final decision is always the best bet we can make. At the very least, everything is taken into consideration, unlike following our gut feeling.

10. Mix with people smarter than you
When it comes learning, nothing beats observing and getting the knowledge from our friends. A good example, if you often mix with people who have good sense of humor, you would, sooner or later turn into someone who also has good sense of humor. This is exactly what happened to me, not that I’m saying I have good sense of humor…. So, do try to spend some time with the people who have good knowledge in things you are interested in immersing, and you would bound to be knowledgeable in the area of your interest.

11. Learn from other people’s mistake
The best way to avoid mistakes is to learn from the mistakes of others. Be constantly aware of what and why things went wrong. This way, you won’t have to pay for the cost of ignorance to the order of how things usually work.

12. Find your mistakes
I have always tried to find new methods that can enhance my many skills. Recently however, I have come to learned that it is so much easier to find mistakes and improve them than to look for ways of doing things right.

13. Don’t put the blame on others
Usually, when we put the blame on others, we would be blind of our own mistakes. And if we don’t acknowledge or learn from our own mistakes, chances are high that we are going to repeat it. Therefore, it is always wiser to blame ourselves before finding the mistakes of others.

14. Free of prejudice
Prejudice makes us dumb. It put thoughts in our head. Thoughts that shouldn’t exist, and blind us from truth. It’s like shopping for a book. You can’t just pick up a book with a pretty cover and head to the counter can you? And then, there’ s title, author, reviews and excerpt to consider, which is why it’s always better to avoid judging based on first impression, whenever possible.

15. Have common sense
I think this goes without saying.

It's so easy to be DUMB, I had to paste this down just to remind myself.

Dem yuh!

Earth Matters #1: Is Mother Earth Out of Control?

The recent 7.0 Richter scale Haiti earthquake that struck the country January this year has taken a heart-wrenching 200,000 death tolls and is expected to rise. 300,000 injured and left 1,000,000 and more, homeless. Too many numbers, way too scary.

Only after a month, in fact just last week, the thunderous 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit Chile. This was the strongest earthquake affecting Chile since the 9.5-magnitude 1960 Valdivia earthquake and the strongest after the 9.1-magnitude 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. The latter earthquake has taken less lives than the Haiti earthquake, but still the impact of the disaster as declared by the President Michelle Bachelet as a "state of catastrophe".

It really got me thinking:

  1. The last 10 years have been really disastrous, as far as Mother Earth is concerned. Even the fact that Malaysia is geographically off the Pacific Ring of Fire, the recent massive 8.8 earthquake that struck Chile "may have changed the entire earth's rotation and shifted Earth's axis." (*source:
  2. The most deadly disasters of the 2000 decade were the Indian Ocean Tsunami, which hit several countries in Asia (2004) leaving 226,408 dead; Cyclone Nargis, which killed 138,366 people in Myanmar (2008); and the Sichuan earthquake in China (2008), causing the deaths of 87,476 people. 73,338 people were also killed in the earthquake in Pakistan (2005) and 72,210 in heat waves in Europe (2003). If you look at it, only one happened outside Asia (heat waves in Europe). And yet still, nearly 60 percent of people killed from natural disasters caused by earthquakes. (*source: UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction)
  3. The numbers of earthquakes for the last 10 years or so increased more than 40 percent. Not to forget, the strength as well. Remember that the earthquakes are on a logarithmic scale; an earthquake of 5.0-magnitude is ten times higher than 4.0, and a 6.0-magnitude is 100 times more powerful than a 4.0. (*source: U.S Geological Survey via Lingkungan Hijau)
  4. Of the top ten largest earthquakes by magnitude, six of it happened from year 1900 onwards. (*source: List of earthquakes from Wikipedia)

Of loyalty.

"I've learnt the dignity of being loyal to something you believe in.
Of holding onto it, above all else.
Of believing, without questioning, that it will carry you home.
