Steal Dorothy's red shoes

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Yes, I would like to steal it if it could give me the power to just go anywhere.

And time machine is a good alternative too.

Anyhow, I've been working for almost a month now. I like my work even though sometimes I'm tired but at this moment, I like it.

I never thought I need to do some coding but yeah, my SV asked me to write some codes. It's a good thing because I don't have to totally abandon programming thingy.

One thing for sure, working life and student's life is certainly different.

I kinda miss my student's life. But who am I kidding, we're aging forward not backward.

I wish I could be like Button if you know what I mean.

Lots of things have changed these days.

People say "With great power comes great responsibility"

and I believe 'with great age comes great responsibility' too.

At this age, you see life in a different perspective.

Responsibilities tag along for sure!

And somehow at some point, you laugh at the thought of being the younger YOU.

How you were so silly back then. How you were so naive back then. How you were so defiant back then.

But eventually you still have a long way to go.

Momentous Occasion

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Today is a momentous occasion for me.

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Moms in the world especially my Mom.

She's indeed my superhero cause she's a superwoman in our house. ♥ 

Without her, I'd be nothing. 

May Allah bless her in this life and hereafter. 
Anyhow my birthday happened to fall on Mother's Day. *Clap clap clap* 

Unfortunately, I'm not in the pink of health.

I've got a bad fever, flu and severe sore throat. It's been 4 days.

I'm on the mend now.

But my sore throat keeps getting worse like I have a frog stuck in my throat.

Severe sore throat comes with a bad coughing and flu. ;'(

I've finished taking my meds but to no avail.

I hope I'll get better soon.

Anyway, regardless of me being off color, I'm still beyond happy to celebrate my birthday and Mother's day.

Alhamdulillah, my life has been great so far. I thank Allah for His innumerable blessings.

I've graduated and now I'm working as an engineer.

I hope my choice to decline an offer to further my studies is a good one. They offered me quite a huge amount of scholarship to support my studies but I had to turn it down due to some reasons.

I believe everything happens for a reason.

I'm happy for now. I guess it's telling me something. ;)

A happy toast to myself..!!

Here's to the successful years ahead

Of being a little too nice

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Occasionally, have you ever felt like you're being a little too nice or too kind?

I do.

And sometimes it felt like your kindness has been abused.

You know, like we can simply let things to slide because it's a small matter.

But somehow, the other party usually are seeing things with half-closed eyes. They tend to let things to slide as well.

Some of them are being inconsiderate that they don't value much of your effort to care for them.

But I guess it goes with experiences.

You have to experience the situation for you to be reminded.

Otherwise, your heart is still blind. And you'll never be aware of the risk of hurting others.

Such a sad world.

Even so, there's no concrete reason for us, for me to stop being nice.

Be nice even if you might exhaust yourself. 

New Beginning

Sunday, May 6, 2012

 "Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt.

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future.

The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.

The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy.

But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty."

—Jon Krakauer (Into the Wild)

“The majority of people have successfully alienated themselves from change;
 they tediously arrange their lives into a familiar pattern, they give themselves to normalcy, they are proud if they are able to follow in auspicious footsteps set before them, they take pride in always coloring inside the lines and they feel secure if they belong to a batch of others who are like them.

Now, if familiar patterns bore you, if normalcy passes before you unnoticed, if you want to create your own footsteps in the earth and leave your own handprints on the skies, if you are the one who doesn't mind the lines in the coloring book as much as others do, and perchance you do not cling to a flock for you to identify with, then you must be ready for adversity.

If you are something extraordinary, you are going to always shock others and while they go about existing in their mundaneness which they call success, you're going to be flying around crazy in their skies and that scares them.

People are afraid of change, afraid of being different, afraid of doing things and thinking things that aren't a part of their checkerboard game of a life. They only know the pieces and the moves in their games, and that's it.

You're always going to find them in the place that you think you're going to find them in, and every time they think about you, you're going to give them a heart attack.”

C.Joybell C. 

Here's to my new beginning.

Mood Lifter

My Mark is such a mood lifter. In a friggin' good way for sure! ♡♡ The only person who's able to fix me. Just like Coldplay's song, Fix Me. Hahaaa. ♥♥♥~ Just feel like pouring it out. Ok Bye.


I've posted Radiohead's video from Coachella fest 2012 before, so here's another video; an acoustic session by Alex Turner.

This is actually different from Arctic Monkeys' set for Coachella.


I feel like Alex is serenading me!


P/s: I love listening to Love Is A Laserquest while driving. Weird. 


It never gets old

Saturday, May 5, 2012

After all these years, they still rock my socks.

And this song, it never gets old. (I personally think The Bends and OK Computer are their best albums of all.)

It was taken from their set in Coachella 2012.

And this was the end of it.

I was blown away.

P/s: I heard some rumors about their upcoming album. I've listened to few tracks but I'm not quite sure. Let's just wait for it. ;)

Sing It Rock 'n' Roll

Friday, May 4, 2012

This is the official video for Oh Chentaku's Sing It Rock 'n' Roll (SIRR).

It has been featured in MTV Asia.

Remember this is for everybody,
The sky has never been this gorgeous, are you with me?
Hey! Welcome to the party, let’s get ourselves rise.
Show the world, how we nail it, how we roll,
Here we go!

When all seems so dark and this is how we roll;
We’re not into perfection.
Baby let it go, this is for tonight, hey,

They were never kings, there will never be.
This is for everyone, who have showed love.
Together, as one!

The track of this symphony is turning me on,
Just don’t care about your problems,
Tell them we’re not scared ‘cause we’re never alone,
We’re all brothers!

And here's the acoustic version of SIRR:

P/s: I really love the acoustic version cause Myo has the best voice for it.

Great news

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Podolski has joined the team.

Say whattttttt...........???????!!!!!!!!

Great news indeed.

I know it from Andy by which he was not really intrigued by the news. Duhh..

Then ignoring him, I quickly went to read some more news about that.

I feel so pumped up just by reading the news.

It's not like I'm going to play with him in the team but I'm really looking forward to see him in the field donning the Arsenal jersey.

Hoyeahh. Yeah you know Podolski is one of Germany's players and Germany is my 2nd choice for FIFA.

Here's what he said about the deal (credit to

“I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal Football Club and to play in the Premier League. Arsenal is one of the top clubs in Europe with a huge history. There are many top quality players at Arsenal and the style of football which the team plays is fantastic. I’m proud to become an Arsenal player and am looking forward to playing my first match at Emirates Stadium and doing my best for all the Arsenal fans."

“I am looking forward to becoming an Arsenal player, but at the moment my focus is with my current club, FC Cologne. I will give everything I have until the end of season to make sure the team finish as high as possible in the Bundesliga. There will always be a place in my heart for FC Cologne.”

My precious

I would trade anything in the world if by doing such I would be able to repay my parents' kindness.

But I just could not.

I'm so grateful to my parents that I feel like I'll have a forever unsettled debt with them.

I will NEVER be able to repay their kindness.

Sometimes I may have taken them for granted, may have overlooked their importance but believe me, they play a major role in my life.

I always need them and they're always there for me. I guess it's the same for everyone.

If I ask them for some time, they always find some time to allocate for me.

If I ask for some money, they always give me more than what I asked.

If I ask them for support, they always offer me full-fledged support.

If I ask them for some advices, they always shower me with meaningful advices.

All in all, they have given their all for nothing in return but for mere happiness.

I'm deeply touched and always grateful for having them. Always. 

I hope I'm not a burden to them cause I sure feel like one, sometimes or most of the times perhaps.

I love them so much.

Just feel like expressing my gratitude in here.

Just because.

-- C.N. Bovee 

"Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on;
'Twas not given for thee alone, Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears.
Pass it on."
