Mom, Surprise!!!

Late yesterday I planned a birthday party for my mom, it was a very last minute preparation because my brother was late from work, my mom totally have no idea what's going on eventhough I found it troubling to sneak out some charcoal from the kitchen for BBQ! LOL! I might look like a very slumber little thief! We grilled chicken wings at my grandfather's house, because, you know, it who will not suspect something's going on if there are very delicious smelling chicken from our own kitchen right? So, grandpa's house is a very safe place for BBQing...hahaha...

My mom's turning 45 already, but, I think she looks younger than that!(Extra cash coming in!!!) Anyway, after Isyak prayer, a little around 8.30, my brother and I took all the food we prepare to our house, and we're lucky because my mom's not in the house, she's at our neighbours. So we got all the time to prepare everything on the table. We got all my aunts and uncles and cousins to come to the surprise party, one of my aunt got her from the neighbours by telling her there's someone coming to see her at the house, we waited casually outside the house, and when she entered the living room, she was really surprised to see all the food and all the guests in the house! Yey! A surprise party indeed, I wish I had time to bake cake, but nevermind, maybe on Mother's Day I'll do that...gotta find recipes somewhere...:) Well, mom, Happy Birthday!

The Boxer

I knew this sing when Lee DeWyze sang it on idol, the lyrics are touching, I mean, unless you just want to gave up when you faced the downturn of your life, you'd like this song, and it makes you feel like, OK, I'm going on, no matter how bad my CGPA is. So, here it is, 'The Boxer' originally sang by Simon and Garfunkel;

I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lie la lie ...

Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers,
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there

Lie la lie ...

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

Lie la lie ...

Big Flop! And Drop!

I was just testing whether I can view my result or not, amazingly yes, considering that I haven't paid the fees yet. I was not shock actually seeing a big drop in my result, well, I think I deserved it for I took the subjects rather lightly and not trying very hard. So, in MY FACE! Hahaha...ok, it's not laughing matter...not sad, not sad.

I have to really made up my mind for next semester, it's going to be my second year there in the university, based on my result, my CGPA, there's a lot of thing to work out...whole lots of things...I need to figure how to straighten my head, get back on the track, the right track, need to get back on 3.0 and above track...

Hide And Seek

Result's finally out today, I don't expect to get good grades, I know I did rather badly in like, everything!
But then, since I haven't paid the fees, I won't be able to check the results anyway...hahaha...bad me!(I haven't told my parents yet! I'll wait)
I was looking for yogurt recipe the other day, it seems very simple to do it, but if, just if, we accidentally got something wrong with the recipe like, forget to sterilize the spoon, and then that yogurt got mixed up with bad bacteria, can we be possibly dead?(I know a bit of exaggeration there!) I'm being cautious anyway, we're talking about bacteria here, I got no microscope to see whether they are bad or good bacteria! Hahahahaha....sorry, I got nothing to do so I just like to write rather unimportant stuff.
And do you know what are the ingredients to make yogurt? It's only 2-3 tablespoon of plain yogurt(for starters, which mean you make yogurt for the first time) and milk, how many you like! Very simple..I want to try to make this! I've been craving the taste of yogurt aver since I left college, and not until another 2 and a half month I'd be able to taste the tastiest yogurt I've ever taste! hahahaha...
The good news to cheer me up this week is, finally, I pack some weight, nearly reaching 50, which is to me a very good achievement to date, no less than 47 now, and I expect by next week I'll be reaching 50 and above. I'll never be uncerweight anymore! I think a little extra fat under my skin won't hurt that much, I personally think it's crucial to have that thick layer of fat anyway!

Final Day Of 19

Not really.
It's just that, there are so much going ons in this years of being 19.
A lot.
I'm gonna miss being under 20s.
But I can't wait to voyage this ship of 20s.
Maybe I'll grow very long, handsome beard.
Maybe I throw away my specs.
Maybe I'll go bald again.
Maybe I'll do better academically.
Maybe I'll get my own website.
Maybe I'll put on more weight.
Maybe I'll look more handsome than before.
Maybe I'll be more mature than before.
Maybe I'll expand my book collection up to 100% this semester.
Maybe I'll finish up my novels I've been writing.
Maybe I'll grow tall.
Maybe I'll be better than Akram of Fatin(no offense here! ;P) in colouring.
Maybe I can draw realistic trees.
Maybe I'll be an artist.
Maybe I'll compose songs.
Maybe I'll make my own money.
Maybe I'll go travel Malaysia on holidays.
Maybe I'll get 4.0 next semester.
And most importantly, I want to get closer to HIM, only HIM, the ONE and ONLY Allah...
I pray that you show me the right way, the way to your heaven, the way of righteousness, I pray that you clear all the black spots and stench in my heart, I pray that you wash away all the bad image in my head, purify all my thoughts...

Lonely Boy

Eventhough I'm back home, a place where I've been longing to be in, it's kinda lonely here. All I have are like virtual friends, who I met at Facebook, or Kawanlah(yes, this Kawanlah thing exist, it's Malaysian.....Friendster...hahahaha), or YM...I want real friends, real being so I can talk with, go out with osmetimes but it's hard to find one here. None of my friends back in primary school are here, the guys, I think, are all working already, the girls, some are in college, some are working, some already got children to feed, aiya...

I really missed my studiomates, been dying to meet them again, about three months from now, missed all the laugh we had, all the sensitive moments, and together with Anis and Akram having ice-cream every late afternoon, I missed all that...I want to do something here, with friends...I did met some students a few days back when they got activities here in my village, I got to talk with them for a while and I do felt really good, but they stayed only for two days only then they head back to college, aiya....hey, who wanna hang out with me this weekend???? p/s--->to Sarawakian or people who can and are willing to travel long distance only...hahaahha

Teh 'O' Ice or Teh 'O' Peng

Funny story(to me) when I first came to Peninsular Malaysia and ordered Iced Tea, I told the mak cik, 'Teh 'O' Peng satu and that mak cik ask me teh o what? I forgot. Hahahaha....Well we Sarawakian, in Sarawak always refers 'Peng' as in 'Ice', like Teh Peng, Milo Peng, Coffee peng....geddit? Now that I'm rather use to life in PM, I never had trouble requesting for Teh 'O' Ice....the funny thing is what happen today I ordered to this abang Teh 'O' Ice and it left me pondering a while. I swear I was thinking am I ordering the right thing because it really did sound quite funny, when my dad in front of me ordered Milo Peng...not funny? I told you earlier it's funny to me....:)

But what's the difference anyway, it's all the same case of seeing a glass as half-full, or half-empty, it's just the same....I felt the same way now. On what? On this one particular girl. I keep telling myself ok, 'you're gone', but at the same time I can't get over her...Oh're with someone elso for God's sake I don't wanna get beat up by someone for a girl...It's like it's on the border line of want to remember and don't want to's killing me...softly? No....I think torturing by heart is really brutal especially when you fought alone and no one else is beside you, or know about it, or care about it. Of course she never knew. But someone did knew. :)

At Last....(Ella Fitzgerald)

Finally I can go online with ease...broadband?fuh....Hampeh....hahahaha....

Can't really believe I'm almost 20, bcoz people might think I'm a seondary school student...hahahaa(perasan)
Unlike most people, I like to grow old, mainly bcoz older people receive better treatment by people, don't believe me?try grow long beard and have lines on your forehead, hunch a bit and walk in somewhere important like office etc...hahaahahahhaa....
So it's almost a week at home I'm expecting something good will happen, something that can highlight my return(cheeeehh)....but not yet so far...
I'm still 'heavying' myself if you know what I mean...:)
OK, that's for today, ciao!

Sharing Is Caring :)
