Happy Birthday Malaysia

Come on hold my hand,
I wanna contact the living.
Not sure I understand,
This role I’ve been given.

I sit and talk to god
And he just laughs at my plans,
My head speaks a language, I don’t understand.

I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

I don’t wanna die,
But I ain’t keen on living either.
Before I fall in love,
I’m preparing to leave her.
I scare myself to death,
That’s why I keep on running.
Before I’ve arrived, I can see myself coming.

I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

And I need to feel, real love
And a life ever after.
I cannot get enough.

I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in,
I got too much love,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

I just wanna feel real love,
In a life ever after
There’s a hole in my soul,
You can see it in my face, it’s a real big place.

Come and hold my hand,
I wanna contact the living,
Not sure I understand,
This role I’ve been given

Not sure I understand.


Please grant us peace, God!



--Amen--

Bamboo Grove - A Vegetarian Night

Ever since I'm sensible enough, I would never thought I would be a vegetarian.
Or in another word, I'll be miserable in days without meat. Yes, MEAT.
But somehow I gave my first taste of vegetarian food on my grandpa's funeral, which stirred up my hatred towards a world without meat. Yes, MEAT!
And when my mother ws diagnosed to be a diabetic patient, somehow vegetarian has become a regular meal at home, where amount of meat-made meal has been decreased. Yeas, MEAT.

Frankly speaking, I'm not a fans towards a world where meat was replaced by flour and mushroom stem, artificial flavouring and hypocritical diet. But, credit will sure flow to those who really made up a very good vegetarian dish where also as an exemplification of belief and practice.

A place of vegetarian restaurant in Kuala Terengganu where crowded of people, regardless of races and their believes. They have Chinese cook, Malay helpers, Mixed of Chinese and Indian customers, and also they advocate environmentalism by giving discount for those who come with their own container for taking-out.


creamo chicken with a real texture and flavour of chicken

curry mutton where the "mutton"actually taste so much like the real with the rank odour, wonder how they did that.

This is the most amazing sweet and sour pork where you actually can taste the fat part of pork out of it! Of course it is artificial fats, you wouldn't expect to get the real meat in a vegetarian restaurant!


Price for this meal I would say is reasonable but not cheap, once in a while is still worthy to try.




Go green, go vegetarian (but not me!^^)

Dying inside to hold you

It's turning out just another day
I took a shower and I went on my way
I stopped there as usual
had a coffee and pie
when I turned to leave
I couldn't believe my eyes

standing there I didn't know what to say
without one touch
we stood there face to face


(And) I was dying indside to hold you
I couldn't believe what I felt for you
dying inside I was dying inside
but I couldn't bring myself to touch you

you said hello then u asked my name
I didn't know if I should go all the way
inside I felt my life have really changed
I knew that it would never be the same

standing there I didn't know what to say
first time looked away when I whispered your name

one hello changed my life
I didn't believe in love at first sight
but you've shown me what is life
and I now I know my love (I know it's coming right)

阴天的歌


昨天 分開的時候
天空微微飄著細雨
車輪 駛過的痕跡
像是一道傷痕

右手 貼住了胸口
讓心跳不再顫抖
奈何 屏住了呼吸
卻擋不住淚流

我没有搭乘 磁浮的列車
故意將行李 在大廳擱著
手錶的時間 用衣袖擋著
是為了延長 這段送别的時刻
我以為將來 的氣候無常
才打包思念 卻没地方放
在前往下個 城市的路上
只好用票根的日期 紀錄憂傷

散步的感觉--- 《夏日之诗》


如果你想理解散步的感觉,
也除了促进消化以外的散步,拖着爱的人散步的感觉,也许你会发觉,

散步只是一种沟通,是一种交流,是一种新陈代谢,是一种语言。

—— 藤井树 《夏日之诗》

藤井树的功力是不是又上一层楼了我不清楚,
不过从《六弄咖啡馆》到这本《夏日之诗》,
我觉得自己像上了瘾,就算走在夜市,看见他的新作,
也不会犹豫是不是正版而买了下来。

如果神给了我一个许愿的机会,
我该对他说些什么?

忆一个瘾君子

今天妈妈从市集回来,转告了一个令人痛心的事情。
那个虽不是给我很好印象的瘾君子“肥丕”,昨天经人殴打后进宣告不治。

我对“肥丕”的印象就是个孤独老人。

记得几年前还在上中学的时候,父亲有时会载我上学,上学前我们都回到旧区的茶档喝早茶。也就是那时候,我对这个“肥丕”有了初步的印象。那个茶档也不是什么大茶档,但是只要你问人,有“肥丕”在的那间就会有人给你指路去了。每天清晨,他都会很准时的,从六点钟就会坐在他自己专属的老位子上,开始以三字经,对着空气的儿孙教学。我初时也给这个场面下了一大跳,还以为从哪座青山跑出来的疯子,或是他在和谁人口角,后来多来了三两次也就习以为常了。有一次我很好奇,专竖起了我的耳朵,想听听他在骂些什么。后来才发现,都是在骂着那些看不起他的家伙们,还有也是一些他在邻里看不过眼的事情,上从天气,下至隔壁家的老鼠,都以办法从他口中以一套奇特的三字经骂法飘出。我曾戏称他这套功夫为“肥丕连绵骂人法”,如果你有机会,能从早上开档时间做到老板收档,你能发觉在那整整五个小时的时段里,他是没有间隔的连续在骂。除了骂累了啜两口茶以外,其余时间你可以听见他的节目直播。仔细一听,有时候还蛮能娱乐你美好的早晨。

“肥丕”从来在市集里都是独来独往。听街坊邻里所他没有什么亲人,只有一个哥哥与他同住。哥哥也不是什么好东西,不过两兄弟至今还没怎么得罪过人家。早上练完功以后,在附近的巴刹里,常会看见他的身影,穿梭在每个不同的摊口中。我印象的是他也不怎么做事,有几次还仿佛看见他帮某些商家上货卸货,也许也就是基本靠以为生的活儿吧。父亲在旧区摆摊子的时候也曾要过他帮忙,纵然也不是什么大忙,好歹每几次都会一元五角的让他图个饭吃。常在走动的时候,会看见他总伶个塑料袋,沉甸甸的,也不知往里头塞了些什么。别看他胖胖矮矮的个子,邋里邋遢的模样,他每次总会到邻近茶餐室的洗手间里洗澡。有一次我恰巧也是到隔间去解手,他突然鬼叫一声,近乎让我尿到脚上去。那边的食客对这号人物也都习以为常了,虽然看见他走来也不会刻意去躲着他。有些上了年纪的家伙喝多两杯黄汤,还把他当娱乐的对象。“肥丕啊,肥丕,来,来,你……几时娶老婆啊?”可这“肥丕”还真有趣,有时候受不了他还回了过去:“你女儿几时要嫁我啊?”可想而知,换来的就是瓶子迎面而至,伴随着几句骂人的脏话。

妈妈说事情来得也忒突然了。“肥丕”平日在镇上总是抱着“你不犯我,我不惹你”的心态,甚少主动得罪人的。今天恰巧横眼望了一个陌生人(妈说是镇上的),就招惹了人家不快,提起头盔往他身上招呼了。瘾君子还怎么经得起这般折腾,马上就倒在地上一动也不动了。妈看见了,好心上前把他叫起,还找来了箩啊什么的借给他扶,怎知他实在没办法爬起身来,好几次都是到会地面上。妈妈也看不下去,只好把什么东西拦在他面前,唯恐车子不长眼把它给碾了。

今天妈妈从市集回来,说“肥丕”今早倒在一家药房门前,怎么也唤不起来,救护车送院后宣告不治。

虽说是社会的寄生虫,可只要他不伤天害理,没有侵犯人家的意图,为什么不能让他苟且偷生呢?一把年纪了的他,早只剩下失去灵魂的躯体,也就只这个躯体,我觉得还比某些小心眼的人强着呢。虽说与“肥丕”没什么交情,可也就因为这样,好端端的一个人就活生生地被击毙,同心的事也没有一个出来阻止。冷暖人生,世态炎凉,人,也不过如此了。

安息吧!

Negaraku vs Mamula Moon


(Please turn your speaker slightly louder)

For the sake of 22 years in my life, I didn't notice our national anthem was actually a COPY CAT!
Imagine that!

Wow~ Impressive information that! Kudos to the people who always claim themselves original!

Mamula Moon
FelixMendelssohn&HisHawaiianSerenaders

one day i walked along
a moonlit island shore
and soon i heard a song
i’ve never heard before

i said who can it be
to sing so tenderly
and saw a dust he made
with lonely serenade

mamula moon
shine high above the southern sea
and like my love
say form again to me

we said goodbye
beside the blue lagoon
alone am i
with you mamula moon

i waved my hand
the grey ship sailed across the bay
on golden sand
that might i melt to pray

that i might see
my love returning soon
still true to me
and you mamula moon

Welldone!

well done!

i would say, it's really an honour and pride of malaysia that he did get into the final!
i was in front of tv and watching that stupid poor transmission of RTM1 and gets my heart pounding everytime he failed to reverse the strike... phew~ i couldn't stay to watch after i saw he lost at the second game in which the difference of the score was way too far for him and that so-so-korean player.

well, CONGRATS again!




*psst psst* pls send Lin-dan back to his old home please, he's so cocky!

Beautiful Wonderland

Marine Park is an effort for the government to conserve the environment in the mean time to provide also the entertainment tourism mode for the public. I have always wanted to go to one of the marine parks and yet i visited 2 in this year! I've visited Kapas Island this April, and had been to Redang Marine Park yesterday.

It wasn't a bad island after all, just that the enforcement of some regulation might not be as strict as i will expect. dead corals, trash and all the man made construction, though it is disturbing but yet, you can really find a sense of peace in this island.

of course, my main purpose is that to look for parasites. yeah, FISH PARASITE! that is what is say, never try to eat any raw fishes before you properly clean them, gosh! imagine tonnes of nematods from just one fish~ you wouldn't want to see that for the sake of your appetite.

caught a very beautiful sunrise on the island itself.
found a very unique island standing solely by itself.
and yes~ a gift to me for this semester!the place have a marvelous sea view and a small lonesome island attached to it


magnificent view from the camping site

it was during the sun set i think... all surrounded by thin mist, it was the Berjaya Airport

you may see alot of schooling fish under the jetty's pillar... with faint yellow light from the jetty

magnificent sunrise with my posing ^__^



redang marine park... pretty!
