excited? tak de lah. tak excited pun...tak excited langsung (dengan nada macho)

Last Friday, my brothers and I along with my aunts and cousins took a flight to Kelantan. It was the first time for my 19 year old brother Hadi. When i asked him if he was excited about flying for the first time, he answered "tak excited pun..ntah, macam...tak rasa" (we just checked in at this time and have yet to board the plane).

Here are some of the things he did to ensure that everybody knows he was NOT excited about the first time he flies:

1. be sure to keep your cool and walk as calmly as possible while heading to your seat

2. argue with your sister about the sitting by the window

3. note and exclaim in awe about little details such as how the water on the wing of the plane dried quickly as it was taking off.

4. say "alamak, tak best la stewardess tak cantik" as you take your seat

5. whine about the fact that there was no turbulance throughout the flight as it would have been "cool" to have felt it.

6. ask the people at the end of your row to ask the stewardess about how high the flight ascended and get disappointed when the person refuses.

7. say "COOL!" loudly when the pilot announces that the plane is about to land and the flight's 'landing kit' is released.

8. slap a huge smile on your face when the plane lands a little roughly and you feel the bump.

9. take as many pictures as possible while on the plane.

10. complain about getting a seat too far up front that your view on the plane's wing is not picturesqe enough.

p/s: i love you, dude. even if your lame self couldn't keep your excitement to yourself long enough :)

happy birthday

it's easy to criticize and ridicule a person when he/she is different

people make things more complicated for you than necessary.
all you gotta do is buck up, bite your tongue and smile.

keep saying "i'll get through this i'll get through this i'll get through this" to yourself...and then suddenly, you do

don't judge me

why do you hate me?

i don't hate you. i love you.

you lie. people said you hate me!

dengar la cakap orang. suka hati you la

here's the truth: nobody , and i mean NOBODY in here or out there, including you, know me well enough to say who i hate or love. so whoever THEY are, they have no right to say anything. and i expected you to know better than to believewhat people say. look, you don't have to make excuses and make me look like the bad guy by saying i hurt you. you wanna leave, just say so.

go then.

missing star...

it's like a missing star that's always been up in your sky,
it's like the rainbow never comes after the rain,
it's like the sun never rises in every of your morning,
how am i supposed to live without those things?
they are all you...

"Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today!"

Question: Why should I stop watching cartoons?

My father has always been on my case about my preferance for cartoons. Several times, he threatened (jokingly) to unsubscribe to the 'fun package' on Astro and replace it with some other package. I always act cool and calm about it but the truth is, I secretly panic EVREY SINGLE TIME. I can understand his worries, in some aspects. I mean, here is a 21 year old girl, not bothering to read papers, watches tv all the time and prefers Disney Channel to HBO or National Geographic. But honestly, can I be BLAMED? HBO plays the same movies over and over and over! And is it MY FAULT the comentaries on National Geographic (despite it being educational and informative) are sooooooo slllllllooooooooowwwwwwwwww and drrrrrrraaaagggggggggyyyyyyyy?

Face it, Disney Channel is FUN, even for THIS 21 year old. I get it if people think I should grow up, be serious, get REAL. But to them, I say this: give Disney a chance. If you paid attention to the content, instead of the fact that it's cartoon, you'll begin to see the WHY behind my love for it. It's so full of belief, possibilities, and hope (and we can never get enough of that).

Take some time to dive into those cartoons. They're more than just graphics. As an example, watch Phineas & Ferb (they're my fave). I know most people think it's a crazy cartoon, but, think about it. What does it teach you? For me, it sends out the message "carpe diem". Those boys seize everyday of their summer and take it as a chance to try something new. They also teach you to never underestimate people, and to believe that if you work really hard, you can achieve whatever your ambitions may be. Now, aren't those values and beliefs you want your children to live life having?

C'mon! I swear to God, the cartoons on Disney Channel are better than our silly, thoughtless and cliché dramas and watching them is a GAZILLION TIMES more fruitful than watching idiotic and stereotypical Indonesian series.

My point? If you're gonna stop your children from watching ANY channel on Astro, make those channels Astro Kirana and Ceria (because i can't agree with both the translated versions of English cartoons and the dumb series they put up for the kids to watch)

p/s: this does not mean that I believe High school Musical or Hannah Montana brings any good for little children.

need i say more?

hehe :)
we love you, babe!

"yeah? must be the light of the oncoming train."

so here's the thing...

i think i want to say smart things, here, from now on (see, this is a sign that i'm really not a very smart person because i have to THINK about saying smart things instead of just saying them--and there's me being not smart again by pointing out how not smart i am--do i make sense to you?).
