Arrivederci Captain

Monday, August 15, 2011

Adios mi capitan.

Arsenal (2003-2011), Barcelona (2011- ??)

The drawn-out saga has ended for real this time. Le sigh.

I'm bidding farewell to the captain, Cesc Fabregas.

It's disheartening to know another one left us. Big time sadness!

And yeah, he left us when we needed him the most.

"Perhaps Arsene you should have been a bit more forceful about that months ago. Losing your two best players the day before the season starts is nothing short of an embarrassing disaster." ~Legrove

But then again, the truth didn't startle me at all. In times, I kept reminding myself the truth is nigh. At some point, he's going back to Barca. That's pretty much about it.

Enjoy your time on the bench if not in the 1st XI. (That's my evil alter-ego, she said that!)

Though the truth is hard to swallow, I'm wishing him all the best in his career and welcome back to the nou camp.

You are loved, you will certainly be missed.

You'll remain as our youngest goalscorer. That's for sure. I'm referring to the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers back in 2003.

Thanks for the amazing 8 years journey. And just so you know, you were once our captain. I'll treasure that in my memories. Once a gunner, always a gunner.

So the Fabregas transfer saga is over as he signs for Barca. Good luck to him, top player. I'm interested to see where Barca will fit him in ~ Rio Ferdinand (via twitter)

P/s: This news reminds me of the moment when Henry left Arsenal. ;(

Henry, Hleb, Pires, Viera and many more. Cesc has joined the list! Congrats. ;(

And yeah, a warmth note for Arsene: Spend some fucking money!!

Oh excuse my French!

Time To Kill

Sunday, August 14, 2011

So many things to do, yet so little time.

I believe this phrase has been frequently abused.

We do have 24 hours a day, is it not enough?

No one has less or more, everyone is given the same amount of time per day.

24 hours a day is not that long to be fully occupied, neither too short to be idle.

"Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing."
Thomas Jefferson

Here's a toast to hectic days ahead...!!!! Kanpai..!!

The Sovereignty

"Indeed, those who fear their Lord unseen

will have forgiveness and great reward."


"And conceal your speech or publicize it; indeed,

He is Knowing of that within the breasts."


P/s: A very lovely verse. Subhanallah. Recite surah Al-Mulk everyday, insyaAllah you'll get a lot of benefit. ;)

Lollapalooza 2011

Around The Park by Steve Wrubel, originally uploaded by LollapaloozaFest.

I forgot how awesome a band could be till I watch the replay of Lollapalooza again. I've watched it a few times and yes, I even watched the
live webcast of the fest on Youtube. Thanks to those who reminded me about the webcast!

This is indeed another great music festival along side with Coachella, Glastonbury, SXSW and etc. I wonder where's The Strokes this year? I remember they played last year. NVM

I didn't watch the whole set though, I picked the one I fancy.

Foo Fighters

The best performance out of all..!! Foo Fighters were so awesome..!!
They kept playing in heavy rains mannn. Shiznit..!

No doubt, Dave Grohl is one of the best frontmen in history. I kid you not!!

There goes my hero.. The best of the best!

You know what I like?
I like it when rock & roll band come up on stage and play their instruments and they don't use fucking computers when they play.


I'm looking to the sky to save me.

Arctic Monkeys is a bad ass fucking rock & roll band.
You hear that, don't cha??

Damn, effin awesome speech by Grohl..!! Perry Farrel, mann!! If you don't know who's Perry Farrel, you're way too young. HAHA. JK! Easy peasy, google him.
Anyway this is the best song ever written in The Colour and The Shape. Period.

This song is by far, the best song written in Wasting Light.
Oh wait, what about Bridge Burning, Rope, These Days? NVM.
Let me sum it up. Wasting Light is the 2nd best album after The Colour and The Shape.

Arctic Monkeys

I miss their old songs. Alex never fails to amaze me. For a recent heartbroken man, this was pretty rad (Not the best performance though)..! No worries Alex..!!

Fluorescent Adolescent still gets me jumpy.


Uber-cool background!

Splendid riffs!!

Matt nailed it.

Cage The Elephant

Enjoy peeps. ;)
For other videos, just search it on youtube. You'll find it.

Set Fire To The Rain

Adele is awesome!

A good friend of mine gave me this song, thanks to you pal! ;)

Of yapping and yapping again

Thursday, August 11, 2011

I haven't write in here for quite a long time. I've lost my mojo to write in here.

But here I come again, hence the title above.

I'm gonna write whatever comes to my mind.

  • I long for a long break. Haven't got any so far. Final exam-> Internship -> 3p course . And I just finished this 3p course and alhamdulillah, passed the exam and got the certificate from Autodesk. What's next?? Oh well currently, I'm staying in campus to finish my fyp 2. Talk about persistence? This is it. But honestly, I don't mind to do what I ought to do. After all, it's part of my responsibility. ;)
  • Completed 3 months of internship. An infinite thanks to everyone in the company for the advices, guidance, humour, inspiration and just everything that make the list of awesome. Muchas gracias. There's a saying ..........."There's a first time for everything"...........
    Oh yea, I did a lot of that while working. Not to mention about the day I conquered my fear of height. *mind-blowing*
  • It hits me to say that the worldly matters often offer a large amount of temptation. I've lost count of times I'm defeated by such large amount of temptation. Sometimes we do forget that the world is temporary. We're so determined to satisfy ourselves hankering for the worldly affairs that we forget the existence of the other world. The world that truly awaits us, the one that is eternal. O Allah, grant me a strong-willed mind that keeps reminding. I think I kinda need that. Period
  • I'm that easy to get bored. After 2 months and counting, I'm bored with FB. It's a good medium for you to keep tabs on your friends but nah, it's not necessary though. I don't mind to update about my life in twitter and this piece of blog, but not in FB. I feel bare. I know you could easily manage your settings to be private, but then If I were to privatize everything in my account, it'd defeat the purpose of me creating a FB account. Blerghhhh...I'm so weird!! Oh wait, what's my purpose again? Shoot.
  • I think I might have suffered from a temporary brain amnesia if there's such thing anyway. The capacity of my memories is jacking up! The old memories tend to be diminished. What a bummer.
Okayyyyyyyy. I'm done yapping. Toodles <3

An Excerpt

Friday, August 5, 2011

There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.

In one well

You have just a few precious cups of water,
That "love" is literally something of yourself,
It can grow as slow as a diamond
If it is lost.

Your love

Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.

There are different wells within us.

Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far, far too deep
For that.

~ Hafez

Here is an excerpt by Hafez, one of the greatest Persian poets. Ohh I'm in love with his poem. His words are so real.
