Remember & Pray

Whoa, time passes so fast. It's 26th December already in Malaysia.

26th December 2009 is just like any other day, same goes to 2008 & so on. But those who clearly remembered - 26th December 2004: Tsunami Disaster at South-East Asia. It was such a horrible day...

I remember waking up from my sleep and seeing my parents watching the news, everyone was just so shocked. I asked what happened? They said Tsunami struck Indonesia and it affected most part of Asia (Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka)

Me: What??? Tsunami? What is that???

Now everyone knows Tsunami, how high the wave went, how fast it happened - how many thousands of lives were lost. But all are tests from God.

Together, we pray may their souls rest in peace and remember to never take anything for granted.

Ho Ho Ho

It's 2:05 am here - 25th December 2009...MERRY CHRISTMAS :D

Hahahh, I have the habit of celebrating every event even though I don't celebrate it. I feel happy when there's a celebration, it makes me happy. I might not have snow or negative degrees Celsius here but I know the entire globe is celebrating it too.

I'm preparing my 2010's resolution :O Gonna post it on 31st Dec! I just love announcing it, what can I say - I write to live.

But on this Christmas Day, I wish for peace & joy for my family, friends & the people around the world...including you who are reading it(; Some people told me that your dream to make a more peaceful world is impossible.

Well, they didn't tell me literally but I can tell by the way they talk or look at me - body languages tell more than words can. I don't blame these people cause my dream is BIG, almost impossible but not impossible(:

I've had people asking me why & how are you gonna do it. I never told anyone before because like I said, I don't express well in talking (I'm really snappy & get lazy when I talk).

1. WHY

Honestly, I do not know why. I just have this urge of making things better. No, I'm not ambitious, I'm just sick of how things are going on with the world now. Because all humans expect is: Okay, you do it and point the finger at someone else.

Wait for a 100 years and nothing will ever change. I want to end wars, I want to end racism, I want to end poverty; I want to make peace, I want to make joy, I want to make unity, I want to make comfort.

2. HOW

Well, there are many ways...music, studies, politics - of course, I want to do through writing: books. I laugh when I read a book, I smile when I read a happy ending, I cry when I read a heart breaking part, I get angry when a character I hate wins. Books are something very magical to me.

Through reading, you're reading a life by words and I think it's really amazing. It's like listening to lyrics and you go, thinking: wow, I know how that feels. I actually got my inspirations from songs - from artists that write their own songs & hope for the best world to become.

But not many people like reading books. They find it nerdy & boring - sigh, you wouldn't know life's meanings until you read a book.

Yes, I know I sound like an old adult caught in a teen's body. How sad...so maybe I'm different from other teens but I enjoy myself being a teen too: partying, hanging out with friends, shopping. Just my life motto and what I want are - different.

lol, now you'll know why nobody actually knows me 100% sadly but there'll always be a part of me that'll be undiscovered. Muahaha!

I got a very long way to go but nothing is impossible(: I believe if you want to achieve something, you have to believe in yourself and start within yourself. If it takes 20 years, I'll take that ride and will not stop til I reach my destiny.

So for this very blissful day, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May you all have the best happiness & health for a whole new year!

It's Human Nature

Helloooooooo

Yes, I changed my layout - I felt that the previous was foreign to me, it felt dull. If you understand what I mean, I didn't feel connected to it & I can't give my full to something I'm not connected to.

So I may be a MJ mania fan but say what you wanna say, I love this guy. "I don't get why people are so obsessed over this man." - you know who you are but lemme just say this: "He changed our lives those who felt connected to him. I'm sorry if you're fed up with this 'obsession' but I have around a few billion fans who feel the exact same way."

Yeah. So zip it, I don't need rude people in my life.

Now that's done...(LOL, I love releasing my anger over the blog). I am just so bored:(

Believe or not, school holiday is coming to an end yet I can't wait to go back to school yet I don't want to - make sense?

I like a brand new year when everything is new. Your plan, your thoughts, your goals...but there are always some unavoidable plans that are permanently there. CRAP, it's SPM. ARGHHHHH, 10 freaking subjects and 11 months :S

It gives me this mixed feelings of anxiety & fear. I mean, what if I don't do well? I have to resit for another year :/ And if I pass, will I get into college? What's there after school? I don't like the sound of it.

Okay, I may be looking into the future too far but...time fly by so fast. Look at the time now, 2 more weeks or so, and it's 2010. At the begining we might think we have the whole time for something but sometimes I wish I could pause time. It's hard to believe I'm going on 17 now.

When I was a kid, I used to think a lot when I'll get older - I couldn't wait but now looking back, I miss those care free times when I didn't have to worry about getting ready for school or studying for tests. Sighh, we all have to grow up, don't we?

I love day dreaming - it gives me the peace of mind. As funny as it sounds, from there I'll create story lines & images about my story. Nooo, I'm no way near begin writing my story yet. What I have are all in my mind, illusions & lines - right now, I have to set my priorties straight first as much as I want to unleash whatever is on my mind.

Time, time - how I despise you,
You pass and leave, no warning is need.
I crave for a break but you have no breaks,
Invincible & heartless, that you are,
you make smiles or tears by moving forward.
Oh - I wish to rewind and relived the air,
the moments of granted I took,
in my day I shall dream.

So Worth It

This is just a quick post(:

I went out for a movie today and I tell never in my life that I am so satisfied with it. Better than Harry Potter, better than New Moon. Trust me, it was WORTH IT.

I'm talking about Avatar! :DD The movie...it took 15 YEARS to build it up, make it, act it out & finally at the end of 2009, it's released. Bloody hell, 15 years but the story line is great & the illustrations of Avatar are simply breath taking - beyond what we could all imagine.

Avatar 11 Pictures, Images and Photos


The director of Avatar is James Cameron who also directed Titanic - one of the best movie of all times & Avatar is certainly getting it too(: I think the amount of hard work & determination plus his creativity of handling this long movie has really paid off.

Just like Titanic, I won't get tired of Avatar if I watched it over & over again. You have to watch it! Many people think Avatar is just some kids movie because of the title & the dress up.

Hahah, noooo, you'll be surprise when you watch it - cinema is a better choice to watch if you want the best sound effect. It's a not a kids movie, it's a WORTH IT movie(:

Okay, I think I'm done. Just wanted to say that out. AVATAR IS SO WORTH IT :DD

And So Here It Goes...


Deck the halls! Fa la la la...la la la la!!

Christmas is near & 2010 is near :O That 'fever' is back.

You the fever when you realize 'another 365 days is coming to an end & I'm about to step in another year' kind of feeling? Ahh, it never seems to fail to amuse me each time Christmas is near because 6 days later, there'll be another HUGE celebration.

But it's kinda funny, especially now when I would shout out in Facebook: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Half of my Facebook friends would say: same to you too! The others would say: woooh, so fast? where you from? LOL, I wish we could all celebrate New Year's together at one time - it'll be cool, don't you think?

So then, the list would come. All I want for Christmas is...uhh, well, umm...

.....

.....I think...no, no, no.....

Ahhh, I want...nah...yeah! wait -

(silence) just give me a never ending regenerating sweet machines that comes from all over the world.

That's simple:D

Ohh, but what about New Year's Resolution? That's a tough one since there's so many things I want to do or change but unlikely since there's SO MANY. But one thing I learn from young: Take the things that are nearer to you, it is easier & always much safer.

So I guess I should put forward things that is the near future & not the far future. As easily, my studies would have to come first, then what'll I do after graduation, then part time job, then college .... wait wait, license then job. LOL, I have to sort it out!

Next post, I'll list down my 2010's resolution & I really hope all of you would list down at the comments; I would love to see your list!!

Sighh, can't believe it's already December. 2009 had been a fairly good year. Though I struggled a lot this year mainly from school because of the high jump of standard it went - I think it's all good but I could have done better(:

If I could restart 2009, I would change some things to make my 2009 better but I don't think God would let that. What's done is done. You can only live the present & hope the best in the future.

Funny as it seems, I have spent 10 freaking years in school and I dread it every single morning especially when I was around 9 and 10. UGHHH, homework used to pile up til 20!!! ARGHHH but now as we go higher, homework becomes lesser because teachers expect you to do your own work at home.

I never finished all my school work, I have to admit.

Not that I'm a bad student - really. But...if you're a student, you'll get what I mean. But I finished 90% of homework:D

Sheezz, what am I babbling????

Hhahahah, ok, I'm done for today. Going back to the real life(: Hope to see your list!!

Jingle Jingle

Hey, I'm back:O LOL...you can't honestly think I'll be taking a break THAT long. Hahahah, I can't stray myself away from the Internet. Sorry, I happened to be a teenager living in the 21st Century.

So, how have you guys been lately? I'm getting lazier, possibly fatter addressing to the amount of time I spent sitting & staring at my laptop. Hahahha. I don't have much going on my mind today so let's just talk about something we're doing now.

How has Internet change your life?

Well, currently, right now, there's 5 people in the house, all have their own laptops & all are online to one small wireless. I'm teaching my grandma how to online & check her mail and oh god! - it's like teaching a 1st grader at school. LMAO

Even though my sister & I are only room to room, we talk to each other through Facebook & MSN. I honestly think that the Internet has created a more peaceful surrounding. I don't have to shout across to room when we fight! HAHAHHAHA - there are emotion icons to be used:D

And surprisingly, Internet also have groups that act as some debate site where people would come in & voice out their opinions. Since you know, some countries protests or voicing out publicly are not allowed, people turned to the Internet and fight! LOL

There's also this group I found: If 7,000,000 people join me, then she would marry me. Awwwwwwww, sooo sweeeeeeet.

Hahahha.

I think the Internt has created a much more peaceful & useful surroundings, though I know there all many disadvantages. But c'mon, are you telling me you can live WITHOUT the internet. Even my dad can't....he prefers(like duh) banking in his money through the Interent. Who wants to line up?

Hey, SHOPPING is a different thing!

So so so so so, what's your opinion? Talk to me!!

much love, XOXO

Saturday, December 5, 2009

Okay

It's been a quite rough week. I'm tired & lazy and school will began next month on 3rd of Jan:/

I'm gonna quit blogging for a while as well as Facebook - and start getting a REAL life. LMAO;D I really love my online friends, they're great! But it's time to open my mouth and talk with people around me. Sigh the dooms of the Internet century.

So to all, if I had made you laugh throughout my blog, yeay!! If I had cut you with my words, I'm terribly sorry - sometimes the way you express through talking cannot be the same when you write.

I'll see you guys soon & promise to at least comment on your blog if I online.

Cheers! (:


If you haven't watch this, please watch it!!

Banning On New Minarets?

I am reading the NST today about the 'Ban on New Minarets in Swiss'.

What has become of the world???

As being a Muslim myself, I am not angered by this. I am saddened & hurt by this banning. This proposal made forward by the Swiss People's Party (SVP), the largest party in the parliament says that minarets are a sign of Islamisation. 22 out of 26 cantons voted in favour of the ban.

"Minarets are a sign of Islamisation" - is that best excuse you can come up with? What is it about Islam that makes you(SVP) so afraid? Is it about 9/11? Is it about the covering up of the Muslim women? Or is it about that there are about 400,000 Muslims that makes you feel threatened?

This is an insult to all Muslims. Although I'm not a citizen there which I'm pretty thankful, but to see our religions being hammered down across the globe, eg.

France- French law banning Islamic headscarves and other visible religious symbols in state schools

Like, WTF-ing hell man. How would you feel if we ban church bells from ringing on every Sunday? How would you feel if we ban the nuns from covering their heads by saying that it's Islamisation? How would you feel if we ban the sprinkling of Holy Water?

What if we ban the Hindus from celebrating their Depavali? And the Buddhas - the monks wearing their clothes by criticizing it's unmoral?

Do you understand what I'm saying here? I'm saying that: Every religion has its own way of religion expressive but most importantly, religion obligation. By banning headscarf, banning minarets, banning mosques - the world once we knew was connected is getting further & further apart.

"Being ignorant is not a sin but to remain ignorant is a sin." If the world keeps on moving backwards & shunning away every difference, then we might as well blame God for making all these differences. The reason that all these controversies are happening is because PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT.

That is how RACISM came about, that is SLAVERY came about, that is how WAR came about. It all starts with IGNORANT PEOPLE. They refuse to learn other things because they are too proud with who they are, they think they are the best when as a matter of fact, no one is the best - it's only their egos which make them ignorant.

It's really sad for those Muslims back there especially the young ones. By doing this, it will only make them feel unwelcome, that they are unwanted. The people who vote for this ban are only too afraid that they will lose power - sighh, you will only lose dignity & self-value. I wouldn't want to shake hands with these people.

I'm not slashing Christianity if that's what you're thinking - but because it is these 2 major religions are having linked problems that I used it as an example. I have a Buddhist, Muslims and 2 Hindus best friends. We get along so well because we learned each other religion that earned each other's respect.

But there's karma: What goes around, comes around. They say that - 'you see, once the African-Americans were the slaves, now looked, whose the President?'

Hahahah, to all these controversies going on - only time will come & the result will prove to you that 'the earth is round and we'll meet again at the next pole".

P/S. Muslim women must wear headscarf, well, it's up to them actually(: It is not a gender discrimination. I have friends who wear headscarf because they want to & not by force. I'm telling this because I don't want any misunderstanding. It is a not gender discrimination & men DO NOT need to wear;D

Pull Your Trousers Up!

I'm BORED. Soo....


Before you start screaming or curse out loud, let me just say this...PULL YOUR TROUSERS UP!!!

I was in Facebook when I came across this group. I joined the group cause I believe that trousers should be worn at the top of your waist and not below it. Or worse, below your butt:/ This trend is common among youngsters mainly boys but few girls do it too(yuck!)

I joined the group because I just HATE when trousers are being worn wrongly. This trend is actually used by rapists that came from prisons as an easier way to attack his victims. But somehow it got the attention of some people who thought it's cool & began the trend. I find it so disgraceful seeing that it is actually the 'fashion of a rapist'. Ugh

Like, how low can you go?!! We don't want to see your butts, we're not interested in short legs either. We don't want to see the colour of your boxers or what brand you may be wearing! So cover up and pull it up!

Not THAT up....


Ladies don't find "low low low" pants attractive. Nope, we care how our partners look too, alright?




Errrr.....

We Do Not Need Replacements

So I was watching YouTube yesterday, well, watching Taylor Swift's video to be exact. I just love her!! Don't you? She won 5 AMA and was the biggest winner of the night. Michael Jackson created history that night, it was so amazing(:


I really love these 2 people. Their musics are so amazing & they write their own songs - very talented people. But then, there was a comment on one of Taylor Swift's video saying: Taylor Swift is so awesome! Do you think she will be as awesome as Michael Jackson or even - the next Michael Jackson? (it was longer but to get to a direct point, this is it, lol)


I honestly don't know why I'm talking about this but I just want to blog & 'talk' with you guys. Plus, this thing has been going on and on - I like firming my standpoint, hahahah! There's been so many going on chaos about 'replacing the throne of the king', 'the next ____' & etc.

Kanye West spoke about it. (Tell you, I feel like shooting this man. He is a rude person and rude people don't go far especially if you wanna survive in the music industry. UGHH)

He said: "You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It's so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I'm willing to take that on. There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King. First there was Elvis [Presley], then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there's nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop."

Personally, I think Kanye West has too much going on with himself. Too much pride, I must say if you want to add his outburst at Taylor Swift's VMA. Sheez, an artiste need to be respectful if you want to be loved as many legends that have walked on this earth. He has to learn to control himself - his comments have cause hatred among people, globally. Count me in. I don't like him either. Even his music!

I don't understand the term of 'replacing' or 'becoming the next'. To me, Elvis Presley is and always be the King of Rock & Roll and Michael Jackson will always be the King Of Pop. You know, there's a saying back at my convent school: Once a CBN-ner, will always be a CBN-ner. Even if you have leave that place or the earth, you'll always be remembered as who you left.

Nobody can replace Michael Jackson, nobody can replace YOU. Nobody can replace your mother, your father - there's only one of them and once they're gone, they are gone. Even if there's a new artiste took the music world by storm or you get a new step-parent, it's not the same. There'll always be a feeling of loss in your heart, it's just not the same.

People are individually different. They can have the same face but their personalities and attitudes are different. We should stop thinking of replacing someone's place, instead creating something new. Taylor Swift deserves her own spotlight and not outstanding off someone's spotlight. Michael Jackson will always be the King Of Pop - his legend will go on & nobody can ever, ever replace Michael - you hear me, Mr. West? You ought to learn some manners, I don't deal well with rude & arrogant people.

No replacing, no remaking - just move on and make a new chapter. That's what people want. They want their history to be left the way it is and want a better future. And everyone should be look as an individual and not be compared to others.

Lastly, rude entertainers don't go far! (You know who I am talking about) If you haven't see the outburst Mr West cause at VMA, it's ALL in YouTube. My advice? If you don't have something to say, SHUT UP. It does bring you instant fame - blacklisted!

I think that's all I have to say. Have a great day everyone! :D

Makes Me Soooooo Happy

It's been raining everyday here. The raining season has come and a lot of places have been flooded. Sigh, we can't control mother nature, can't we?

There's nothing much going on with the world now. School holiday just started, I'm having my BIG break now before reaching my last senior year in high school next year:/ Crap, I don't want to sit for SPM. But I do want to study aboard - okay, so maybe I do HAVE to sit for the exam.

I don't have anything to talk about today since my brain cells are on holiday. So I'm just going to talk something really random today(: That day, I was watching 'Because I Said So' a movie about a mum who is so protective over her daughter and wanted the very best of her. So she pair up a perfect guy with her daughter without letting her knowing that. When her daughter found out about it, she was furious. Then, her mum said: I only want the best for you.

Hmm...the line sounds very familiar. But what if the best is not good enough? Maybe he's short, has simple clothes - but what if he makes you happy? Isn't that the best of all?


It may surprise you that some people go after what they seem is the best for them, maybe it's because they don't have enough faith in whatever they believe in. Pretty sad when you come to think of it but life can be complicated at times.

The question of the day is:

What Makes You Happy & You Wouldn't Let Anything to Replace It?

Thinkinng, aren't you? Hahhaha, it's simple for me. SWEETS:DD CHOCOLATE:DD Well, if you point it from food, I have to say these two. Sweets are just sweet; chocolate is just soothing. Plus, to add to your beneficial, chocolate reduce stress and calms you down. So take a bite of chocolate today!

And of course, friends & family make me happy. Family can be a huge headache at times(I'm a teen) but they are the best thing you can count on forever. Friends are another people close to family - they make you laugh, make you happy, be there to listen and tell secrets that nobody else know. They are just like your sisters/brothers from another mother. Hhahah, that's how people put it.

Okay, if you say stuff - it would be books. Storybooks. If there's one building I could save from whatsoever disaster, it would be the library. But if I'm lucky enough, the second would be shopping malls. LOL:D I don't know you but books are the best companion of my life. It's like a silent partner who is always ready to make your day happy. I love the imaginations I can create through reading and the emotions and thoughts I get from reading. I don't have to be that person to feel what's it like, I can feel him already.



Currently I'm happy cause I have my sweets by my side, it's the holiday, sleeping over at my grandma's house & just enjoying life(:

What makes you happy? So happy that you can't live without. Okay I admit mine are a bit off chart, glucose never fails to sweeten your day:DD

Keep the comments coming in, til then, take care!

31 December 2012


Boo yeah!! The finals are over and the last day of school is on Friday!!! Yipeee!!!
Hahhahah, when the bell rang, the whole school was vibrating with the shouts & cheers of the whole forms. Plus, the form fives graduated today so there were other reasons to cheer about.

Sigh. Time flies so fast! Next year, it would be my turn to graduate.

Anyway, I was thinking:

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF TOMORROW IS DOOM'S DAY?

There has been a lot going on about the Mayan calender, so much that they created a movie about it called 2010. I'm going to watch it by the way. According to the Mayan, 31 December 2012 would be the end of the world.

Well to be honest, I don't believe in this. Not to say that I don't believe in the end of the world, of course I do, everything will have its end one day. But I believe in my religion and according to it, only God knows when is Dooms Day and nobody else. It will come as a surprise but the signs will be there.

Now as I type in 2012 in Google, everything is like END OF THE WORLD. It's pretty amusing to read some of the posts, you should try it.

According to Islam and our beloved Prophet Muhammad, he stated 1400 years back then signs that would appear before the Judgment Day comes. There are minor signs & major signs. Minor signs are signs that are giving you clues; major signs are already too late for us to pray to God.

The signs are: -

(Minor Signs)

- very tall building will built

- adultery becomes widespread and the drinking of wine will become common

- the number of men will decrease & the number of women will increase until there 50 women to be looked after one man

- approximately 30 DAJJALS would appear, each claiming to be the messenger of God

- killing, wars, wealth will increase

Major Signs :-

- the appearance of MAHDI

- the appearance of DAJJAL (anti Christ)

- the appearance of Ma'juj & Ya'juj' (biblical Gog and Magog)

- Nabi Isa or better known as Christ (yes, Muslims believe in Christ who was the 23rd Prophet while Muhammad was the 25th, last Prophet)

- the rising of sun from the west

- the destruction of Ka'ba and the recovery of its treasures


I'm not trying to scare you, imagine me writing this post. But it's time we realize AGAIN that we do not live forever, although sometimes we get lost in this wealthy world. This is the Islam's view of Judgment Day so if you're from another religion, feel free to comment what you know. It's really great hearing from another side.

If tomorrow was the last day of earth, you know what I'll do?

I'll eat as much as I can. Cry of course, afraid what would happen next. But of course, I want to be with my family & friends, people that I love until the end. To know that, hey, I live my life to the fullest, did what I must and wanted, I'm cared & loved - My job is done(:

So let us all live life to the fullest, be the best you can(: Love as many as you can & laugh as often as you can. Til then, have a great week fill with happiness!

Do You Believe in Ghosts?

Yess!!! The finals are finally over! I can online from morning til night now :D Hahahahh, I'm just glad to be back in the cyber world.

Anyway, I know that Halloween & The Hungry Ghost Festival are over. But ghosts never fail to catch out attention, don't they? It doesn't matter whether you believe or not but in the end, nobody can prove the existence of ghosts/supernatural stuff.

What is ghost? There are long, long description for the term of ghost which I don' get it since normal people like us can't interpret those lengthy terms of words. Or probably it is just me. Most of us describe ghost as - something or someone who is supposedly dead but yet still tied down the ground of the earth because of unfinished business e.g. revenge & commit suicide.


Some say that ghosts are just illusions of the human brains. We tend to have wild imaginations as humans as well as having logical thinking. But what happens when something cannot be explained? Do we just deny it? It's similary to the existence of God, most believe while some don't still. Like they say: Those who believe, no proof is necessary; those who doubt, no proof is enough.

I believe in ghosts, though I never encounter one before. Why? Well. Nothing is impossible in this world. If there are Devils and from what the human eye can see that the Universe is never ending distance & our Milky Way is not even a quarter of the Universe - I believe there just some things we have to believe and we just can't find the answers to everything.

I know people who encounter ghosts before. Some described it as terrifying and some are used to the sightings of ghosts. But to be honest, I am GLAD not to encounter one yet. I wouldn't know how to react.

I got a few info on ghostly things in Malaysia since those are the best ones I know(LOL).

St Michael’s Institution, Ipoh – A group of Catholics missionaries arrived here in 1912 and began building a school next to the famous Kinta River. It did not take long for the missionary brothers who ran the school to have enough funds to erect a huge school building with unique French structural design. When the WW2 broke out, the school was used bu Japanese secret police as their headquarters. Needless to say, there were lots of torturing carried out. The buidling itself had many tunnels which had been sealed off and the tunnels were said to be used by the Japanese to torture prisoners and to store food. Most of the sightings occurs in the Chapel on the fourth floor of the bluiding where a Brother was seen dressed in a black robe holding praying beands in a sitting position facing towards the door (which leads to the brothers quarters) in the very early morning without a head. Those who had witnessed it were asked to keep it a secret.


Victoria Institution, Kuala Lumpur – A boys school was tured into a Japanese base during the Occupation. Many British soldiers and locals were brutally tortured to death in the basement and some older buildings on the campus. It is said that not only are apparitions common in the day as well as in the night, there had also been many cases of spirits possessing students. The possessed boys would behave strangely and even violently harming other students and teachers, forcing the stronger teachers and students to restrain him. The possesed boy would only snap out of it a few hours later and remembering nothing

Highland Towers, Kuala Lumpur – A tragic event where one of the 3 blocks of apartment at this place fell apart due to landslide and heavy downpour prior to that fateful day. Since then, the Highland Towers have become famous for claims of being a very haunted place. Voices of the dead can be heard at night and ghostly figures are said to have appeared at the scene. There are also a story about a taxi driver who picked up a woman passenger at the middle of the night and being asked to drop her at the place.She left a bag and the poor taxi driver found it to be full of blood!

Genting Highlands Resort, Pahang – A famous hill top resort and casino, many people incurred gambling debts and committed suicide there. Some visitors leaving the hotel lobby reported seeing a man in red jump from the rooftop, just to disappear before he hits the ground. Certain rooms are not available for rent no matter how full the hotel was. Those who have seen the inside reported that it was filled with old Chinese ghost wards. They would subsequently fall sick for days afterwards


The most popular ghosts in Malaysia are as listed as below. I'm always warn by my mum & elderly people not to wander alone in the forest or waterfall because you'll never know which 'invisible people' are living there and might not welcome you. Also, if I were to sense something unnatural, don't scream - stay calm, keep a straight face & pray to the Almighty.

  1. Pontianak – also known as the vampire where it is belief that they are usually ladies dressed in white seeking for revenge. The pontianak is said to be the spirit of a woman died of childbirth. Most of the time, they can look very beautiful but if you look closely, she would have razor sharp teeth. They usually comes out after the sun sets searching for men or pregnant women (apparently, it is said that she could not bear the thought of other women being able to enjoy motherhood) to suck blood. Sometimes, they even eat the flesh of babies ripped out from their mother’s womb.
  2. Toyol – these are actually ghostly kids that people adopt for the objective of stealing other people’s money. It is believed that this spirit is kept and preserved in a jar in a form of a foetus. Because the toyol is kept by people to do bidding, you have to feed it with blood everyday.
  3. Hantu Jepun – translates as Japanese ghost. Believed to appear wearing WW2 army attire carrying samurai swords. Usually found marching or if you are lucky, you can only hear the footsteps of marching. They are mostly headless.
  4. Hantu Penanggalan (Hantu Tengelong) – Usually women studying black magic that has the ability to split its body from its head and fly around with its guts hanging around. It is said that its love to suck the blood of women during childbirth
  5. Bunian good ghost or jinns (genie) that is usually found in the jungle. Loves to help humans in trouble or in need.

But like they say: If you don't disturb them, they won't disturb you. If you believe in God, you have nothing to be afraid of.

The world is just mysterious in so many ways that we tend to avoid the unanswerable questions.

A Ban Country?

Currently, there is this famous line going around:
Malaysia is a ban country

OUCH. Ugh, although I'm a Malaysian, I can't help but feeling the same way! Okay, maybe some of you would not understand what the heck I am talking about.

Last year, Avril Lavigne who came here for her 'Best Damn Thing' tour had protests across the country from various groups who said that 'she is too sexy'. Of course, she made a deal to wear something decent since it is a majority Muslim country but still, there some people finding fault and keep protesting. But thank God, she still came & rock out!

And the recent scandal, damn, Beyonce. She was supposed to be here tomorrow for as her part of her 'I Am...Sasha Fierce' world tour. But she 'postponed' her concert here(but everyone knew she won't come back here) as there was a source saying that Beyonce receive bad notices about Malaysia and has a scare of Muslim thing. But it was obvious because of the protests too that had been on since she made her announcement.





Okay, maybe some of you would reconsider all these concert protests thing(but I DON'T). What about this? Ban condoms. Yes, you heard me: BAN CONDOMS. Why ban condoms? I don't get it. By banning condoms, it's not like the cases of unwed mothers, teen pregnancies & babies being abandoned would reduce? In fact, it is surely going to rise.

Besides, some families use condoms as a control so they can plan out their families properly. Is that a bad thing? And prove to us that it stated in al - Quran or any religion that says that: Condoms are illegal in the religion's views. We can't just ban things just because we feel like we want to or just to make things look 'better'.

To add a little more chilies, here's another one: Ban Horror Movies. God, then they might as well ban cinemas nationally! They say that it is not good for the Muslims as they consist of elements that go against the teaching of Islam. To me, this is just an excuse. People still have a choice whether they want to watch what genre of movies - are we really that naive to need baning to guide us?


If they are so concern with the 'rights' of Islam, why don't just impose on a rule that needs all Muslims to cover up? Instead of banning condoms, banning horror movies - IT IS JUST ILLOGICAL.

Ohh, what's next? Banning on Coke? Banning on skirts? Banning from travelling to the Western countries?

I wouldn't care if they ban cigarettes since they are an obvious threats. But these going on banning are just ridiculous. What good do they bring if those stuff are banned? These just bring angers among us - WE ARE THE PEOPLE. To us, none of these are being threats to us.

So seriously, just stop about baning this and that. Why don't focus on more important things like reduce the cases of rape, kidnappings and help the low income families, instead of imposing bans that bring us nothing.

Time Passes, Memories Stay


Sorry for not blogging for a long time. I really miss writing my post at the end of every weekend but the finals is just around the corner, the end of school year for 2009 is near to an end...So everything has been rather crumpled up.

But it made me realize how fast time can fly. To many of us, we tend to take advantages of things that we have for granted.

For instance, I never liked school. I kept on thinking how great it would be when my school years would come to an end and I wouldn't have to suffer sitting for exams, studying, seeing fierce teachers everyday, getting annoyed by prefects & etc.

But when I think of next year - 2010, it'll be my final year in high school and then, I have to face the real world. I'm sure most of us have thought if it in that way, thinking about the future and often forgetting the present. Right now, I honestly wish time wouldn't pass by so quickly.


I can't help but think of the things and memories, let it be happy or sad; sweet or bitter - even though there are things that I wished I had done differently, it's kind of amazing that I am still standing here today like everyone else. Life's cycle.

There are times I wish I could go back and fix things or maybe adjust a little and just maybe, there are things that will still be with me now. But like they say, you can't fix everything nor can you save everything. Maybe it's just meant to be so from then on, you would understand better.

My friends and I talk a lot about our futures after SPM(the BIGGEST final) on how we would be, where we would be. I mean, I am scared for my future but I can't help but feeling sad at the same time when I thought of leaving behind all of these. 'These' meaning my friends, my uniforms, my school, teachers yelling...I have to admit I am and will miss school.

Yeah, there are fights, clashes, misunderstandings - maybe you're not what you see as a good person but I believe that a good person has their flaw too, maybe that's what must them different from others in a way.

I remembered hating about changing schools during my high school year, I thought about all the bad things: new friends, new teachers...but after a long time, keeping it to myself, I realize this is reality - I have to let it go and face the fact that I'm at somewhere else now. Turned out, my new school is where I found my true self, my true best friends who I know will be there for me til the end, guy friends who probably taught me how to do stupid acts and teachers who taught us that everything begins with a single particle.

But it'll be good enough to know that whatever happens, I still have my own belief and people who are there for me no matter how far we away. She might go to the US, she might go to Japan, I might go - God knows where, maybe we'll lose touch along the way or maybe we won't or maybe we'll see each other after a while.

No matter what, at least I have something - WE all have something that are the same in the back of our mind: Memories that we will cherished forever like we first talked & laughed & become the best of who we are.

Addiction

It's a Sundayyyyy & I have....no idea what to talk about.

But I still want to blog since well, I don't talk a lot literally. I've been staying at home lately, not going out shopping. You might think I'm grounded but the truth is, my family(my mum, myself & my sis) are addicted to Facebook.

It all started on Friday, I think when we introduced our mum to Sorority Life on Facebook. We taught how to socialize, how to glam up and how to fight! hahahahh, soon it became an addiction.



Addiction is bad. It's like a drug you want to keep inhaling. To make matter worse, it's the Internet - FACEBOOK. I know some of you are surprise that my mum actually has a Facebook but it's pretty normal once you get to see many mothers on Facebook.

And guess what?

Nearly every one of them are playing Sorority Life!!

The latest time we all played was until 3.40 am :/ Hell, what a torture. Most of the guys would say that we are crazy over some silly game but what about them? Waking up at 3 am just to watch football matches and it's not like you're in the stadium cheering on.

So maybe we all have our different point of view. But I still can't find a cure to this addiction.

Not to mention my addiction to sweets too! Skittles & Mentos are like the food of my life. Cheesy, huh. But now I'm controlling, I'm not fat(LOL) - but I'm scared of getting diabetic. I used to crave for sweets but now, I cut down but of course, I could never let go of my sweets. My friends used(still) tell me that I'm gonna end in the hospital one day.

Ugh. I have to get back to the game. It's addicting.

But please do tell me how I can control myself(:

A long, long time ago...


Books.

What can I say about them? They are boring, dull & painful. That is - if you meant school books. (I'm a student, what do you expect?)

But if you meant by 'other' books which include all the fantasy, comedy & mystery types, I have to tell you this: Without books, it's as though there is no oxygen to breathe. It may sound over dramatic but I never fail to beg my mum to buy me storybooks whenever we happened to pass by one.


The latest book I bought is Suspicion a Private Series by Kate Brian. It's a teenage series book which I just simply adore. You may think I only read books which are my age but I have two tastes in books actually: Teens & Life Touching books. I believe it's because I'm a teen which urge me to read books that are my age while on the other hand, I just love this warm touching true storybooks which give me almost 90% inspiration that drove me to think differently.

It's funny how a small thing that compromise thousands words can create a dreamland in the back of your mind. Don't try to deny it, I know almost everyone who read books will have this little imaginary thing that they are in the book acting out their favourite character.

But I think the best thing about books are that - as you read, you can feel as if the writer is telling the story aloud; only difference is that it is only for you to hear. Sometimes you get the feeling of the feelings of the writer which explains why the tears, laughter, joyful, etc. You may think it's because of the story line but it's the creative mind of the writer who is expressing themselves.

Books are just a smaller version of movies. Instead of adding people to act them out, you visualize your own movie. Every time there's a movie that is acted out, I can't help but feel disappointed at times because they never match my expectations.

My mum used to tell me to sell my books but I just don't have the heart to do it because they have grown so much in me that I have attached myself to them. Well, it's better than being all attach to a guy(LOL). I can re-read the same book over and over and over again because I just love reading that book. The only book I can't read more than once is Harry Potter books - too thick, I can barely catch my breath.

I know some of you may think books are bo-ring especially the guys, I don't know why. But the truth is, they are great companions when you are alone or bored. I can stay up as late as 3 am just to finish the book I'm reading. I skip my lunch sometimes(unhealthy) because I'm too into the book.

My friends hate it when I'm reading a book because when I do, I don't pay attention to the outside world but in the book only. So I vowed to read books at home only so they won't get piss. Hahahah. But books are my 1st thing that I love followed by Internet. To me, books are my treasure. And if I'm rich enough, I would want to have a library in my house. Hhahahah, nerd much.







These are my favourite books of all time. I love the story line and I love the writers themselves. I know that William Shakespeare is the greatest person in Literature that ever lived but these books are the greatest books that are ever written.

Truth is, I prefer Narnia over Harry Potter because like Black Beauty, it's classic. I have a thing for classical things. Hhahahah. Til then, enjoy reading books, people!

Humans Are Still Humans

I'm back after a long 9 hours drive. I'm having cramps all over my body especially at my back. Never sleep in the car cause you are bound to sleep put in one position for 3 hours before getting up with a sore back. Groan.

Raya was fine, glad to see the clear blue sky and unpolluted air. But raya money was disappointing:( Sigh. I was targeting higher. Well, there's Chinese New Year coming up!

My family and I were at some food stall eating when a woman with a broad shoulders came serving us. I was a bit blur at first as my aunt was seemed to be giggling and sending signals. I took a look at the waitress again who was a Malay wearing baju kurung only to realize: she's a man. I just grinned the whole way but I have to say that lady had a pretty make up especially around the eyes and the fake eyelashes.

But I was thinking: What Do People Think About Homosexual People?

Some people keep on trying to avoid this subject because they think it's too sensitive. He-lo? May I say that gays & lesbians are living around us. If racism issues can be spoken aloud, I don't see the problem of this.

I'm not here to judge one's orientation cause each and everyone of us is different. My mother may like doing accounting but I like literature; my best friend likes punk rock but I like classic. Each of us sees things differently as it goes down to our lives too like, religions, music, food, fashion, etc.

They say that 'boys like girls and girls like boys' but what happens if they become neutral? Do you shun them away? Many people look down on these homosexual people because they think these people are weird & freaky. Whenever a homo person walk by, people along the way would give a look and snicker. I feel bad sometimes as I think how tough it is for them to pass through all of these.

Even though I do not know how must they feel but I know that we have to accept them for who they are. Okay so maybe this man who dresses as a woman may look freakishly tall, big hands and straight, long hair - to me, I still see him as a human being. There might be some uncomfortable feelings but it is because we keep looking at them as 'aliens' - seeing them as though they came from Jupiter.

Lets put it this way. You have a best friend who has been you're first friend, all the way through high school, college and your wedding - one day, he or she spills that 'I'm a homosexual'. Do you cut off with that person just because he/she admitted the truth and hated lying from you? If I were there to judge, I find the narrow minded friend is not a true friend at all. If my friend was a homosexual, he/she will still be my friend and I wouldn't want to lose my friend.

There are parents who disown their kids who admit they are homosexual just because they feel ashamed. If I were the mom, I can't bear the thought of losing my kid just because I can't accept him for who he is. And because of this, many of them turn for prostitution and people take this advantage on why homosexual should be wipe out.

I admit that they might appear weird looking at times and society tend to look down at them but a human is still a human no matter what they are. They ought to be treated as fair as the others and be shown respect like the others too.

So, yeah, people should learn to accept people no matter what they are.. If you treat me nice, I treat you nice. It's your actions that judge you; not who or what you are.

But....What do you think? (Write an essay if you have to, lol)

Random Thoughts Part 2

Hello. I'm blogging for the 2nd time in a day for the first time. Why? Cause in a few more hours, I will be heading to my hometown where I know most certainly internet is hard to get there.

I'm just looking through the web for some humour and came across some pretty hilarious photos. Not sure if you had seen them but I had a great laugh:DD


what a really great tip.



omg. Gross.



LMAO XD

BAHHAHAHAHHA!!!!










loveeeee this ad:DD

Random Thoughts Passing Through

I'm really bored today. I've been online since morning, then off, then on, then off, then on again. But I'm going back to my hometown tonight - in the wee hours and driving there for 10 hours:/ Dang. I wanna fly highhhhhh!

But I went to visit a relative who is undergoing dialysis at a hospital. She was in great pain and the worst part is she is going to celebrate Raya in bed. I didn't talk cause I never met her and she was in too much pain to talk so instead, I scanned across the dialysis room which had around 10 - 15 patients in it.

Most of the patients are around age 55 & above and are mostly circled by their husbands or wives. What is really sweet is that there was this lady who felt uncomfortable at her back and her husband got up without a word and massaged her back. It was like a silent love. OK,OK so maybe I observe too much but hey, that's my gift. Bahahahhaha:D

But there are so many stories on how the husbands abuse their wives, abandoning their responsibilities, alcoholics, etc. I do have aunts who found their husbands were having affairs and the next thing you know: divorce. It's sad but maybe it's for the better.

Sigh. It's so true when they say, "The Power of Love". We must accept & give love but not fall for love easily. I've seen many break ups & few divorces and the idea of 'love' is giving me doubts.

"My love for you is as deep as the ocean and high as the sky."

"If I could swim in your eyes, it'll be heaven on earth."

"Your beauty in my eyes are forever & ever lasting."

"The beating of my heart is every beat of my love for you."

Sometimes these make me sick but sometimes they are so beautiful. Well, most of the time books like Twilight & movies like Jerry McGuire and Titanic are examples of the most beautiful quotes.

While love is important, for the time being I think all I need is love from my friends & family and the best part is I have both of them(: So maybe I'll be eyeing on some guys I like but I'm not looking for my so called 'Mr. Right'. I'm 16 for crying out loud.

I know some girls around my age are already putting their boyfriends before them and dreaming the day of them hand in hand walking down the aisle. When it ends, there will be heartaches & tears. Go have a boyfriend if you want but don't attach yourself too close to him. Remember you still need a space to love yourself.

I'm gonna change my layout. I'm getting bored and more hungryyyyy.
1 more hour, QM. You can do it. Then, it's RAYA!

Selamat Hari Raya & Maaf Zahir Batin, xoxo

Do People Understand 1Malaysia Concept?

God I miss blogging. It felt like I haven't blog for a year. Sorry, things get pretty busy with school around but now- Raya is here! A whole week away from the city and having fun at the countryside.

Anyway, I'm going to write about something that happened quite a while ago but certainly hasn't been forgotten. When our country celebrated its 52nd Independence Day and the people had their new moto - 1Malaysia. Sadly, a few days later, something happened that changed everyone's views.

It happened in Shah Alam when the residents there objected the building of a Hindu temple in their area. 90% of the residents are Muslims - but what about the rest? Don't they the rights to have what they believe in too? This lead to serious & sensitive issues especially when a group of people came protesting against the proposal of the temple by walking down the street with a severed cow's head which made the Hindus really, really upset & angry.

I was angry. Why? Because that act was immature, insensitive & irresponsible. I may not be a Hindu but I strongly believe in respecting one and another even if it means that person is from a different planet. The most shameful part is that the hurtful act was done by the Muslims on the holy day - a Friday. So I was angry and shameful at the same time.

An Indian man spoke during a meeting to solve this case, he said, "Why can't we all live in peace?" And this lead to hurls and rude remarks.

Let me have my say here: I AGREE WITH THAT INDIAN GUY. AND BASED ON WHAT HAPPENED, MOST OF US STILL DON'T GET THE 1MALAYSIA CONCEPT.

Why can't we leave in peace together without needing to feel threatened? Why can't mosques, churches & temples be built side by side without the need of wars? What makes us so different that our beliefs can't be share on the same land? Whenever something bad happens, we tend to point fingers at others while in actual fact, we are the ones.

It doesn't mean if you're a black, you can't sit beside a white. It's not a sin for a Christian to enter a mosque. It's fine to be friends with people from different races, skin colours & religions. We have to stop being so selfish & narrow minded, we have to co-exist with one another. Because we don't the right to say that, 'My religion is the truth.' God never said that, in fact, the Prophet Muhammad created the first law on earth whereby everyone let it be Jewish, Muslims or other beliefs must live in harmony and respect each other.

So I don't see what's the fuss of having a Hindu temple in a 90% muslim people's are because the way I see it, everyone is different and we have to accept them and what they believe.

We will never understand other people if we remain ignorant to our own thoughts only. The world is not create for one species only.

To the Legend...Rock On!

Here's a simple post dedicated to a person who had changed the world forever. It's not surprising millions of people around the world are thanking this very date - for if it was not for him, we will never understand people from different races and we will never know music.

He may not be with us but stay on in our hearts forever, the same goes for the generations to come. I may sound a love sick fan but many still fail to see beyond the lies and barriers that blind us to see the true person behind it.

I just want to say:

"Happy Birthday, Michael.
You will never die but live within us forever."

Maybe he's performing his concert up there to the people who left before him. Dang, they are so lucky! But hey, one day, we will all get the chance to see the King(:

Be Happy

Lately, people around me have been pretty down. Let it be family, friends and even social network buddies. Feeling sad, down, getting blues in which I call 'ill feelings' cannot be outrun by us but what if that someone has come to a point where he or she feels that life isn't important anymore? That life is simply boring and dull.

I used to get that images of the Earth turning grey with dark clouds circling above my head that sometimes I have no mood to do anything but to just sit in my room, letting time fly pass me. Only to find that there is actually more to life than what we thought had been.

Human beings are actually very foolish people. In terms, sometimes we let darkness consume us.

I thought about those times when my family and I had a big gathering. Everyone was so happy. I remembered the time when my friends and I did something stupid, and we couldn't stop laughing until this very day; there were times, I thought about something or someone, my spirit felt down - as thought the world has shut its door to me. But I made that door opened for me by cherishing the fond & happy memories that was left behind. That point I realize not all is gone.

Happiness is the biggest gift, laughing is the best medicine. So why not go make someone happy today? When was the last time someone actually felt happy by you? You'll be surprise at how great it feels knowing that person is happy because of you. It doesn't have to be anything expensive. You could simply offer a hand like: helping your neighbour sweeping the yard, helping a blind guy crossing the road or simply spending time with the kids at the orphanage. Or if you're a great cook, bake some for the charity or share among your loved ones. You'll be amaze how light-hearted and warm you feel.

And SMILE. When you smile, your spirit soars high. Even if you're feeling blue, just smile. Smile because you know whatever comes your way, you can make it through. No matter how hard and impossible it seems to be, you'll survive and come out as a warrior of your own. Let that happiness burn inside of you - make your life an adventure!

Last but not least, LAUGH! Getting bored? Turn on some old cartoons that kids watch today - I still watch! Mr. Bean, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Looney Tunes, Spongebob...or something more 'adult' for those feel cartoons are out of their league: The Nanny(this is a must), Two & a half men, Friends or maybe movies like White Chicks, Garfield, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. As you watch these, your mind & soul is fully concentrated on the TV and as you laugh, you get that hyper motive in you to keep on laughing. Watch it with your friends & family, it's going to be 100x laughter than watching with your pet.

So people, let us all smile, laugh & be happy. It's alright to feel down once in a while but remember, happiness conquers all. Help someone today by making them happy and in return, you'll be the happy person you never knew.
