street spirit

Rows of houses all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things in all positions
All these things will one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will will not communicate these thoughts
And the strain I am under
Be a world child form a circle before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death can see it’s beady eyes
All these things into frution
All these things we’ll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again.

The Naughty Alliance

The Naughty Alliance

Gather the women and the brokenhearted
Let the cupid love and kiss
strip yourself naked looking for a bliss

Gather all people and listen
When the bard sings
He wakes the mountains
and promise heaven to all beings

Gather your golds and daughters
Let us sing to you the song of fame and glory
prowess chivalry and bravery
Before the satire makes you a parody

2 minutes of silence

on top of the world

In the next world war
In a jackknifed juggernaut
I am born again

In the neon sign
Scrolling up and down
I am born again

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

In a deep deep sleep of the innocent
I am born again

In a fast german car
I'm amazed that I survived
An airbag saved my life

Over to you

HARI Raya Aidilfitri celebrations just do not seem the same anymore. Perhaps it is because I am older now.
The merriment I experienced as a young boy appears to have dwindled with the passing years. (But all that notwithstanding, I still look forward to submitting my 10-day leave application).

Part of the reason for the melancholy is perhaps due to my grandfather's passing. No more crates of carbonated drinks, and bags of firecrackers for us grandchildren on the eve of Syawal.

He taught me that Hari Raya is not all about duit raya, kuih raya or the notorious meriam buluh. It was also not merely about new bright-coloured clothes. Hari Raya is about being together with friends and family, a joyous occasion to be shared.

The muezzin's call to prayer on Hari Raya is something to cherish. It heralds the start of the celebration, seen as a time for reflection for many, a time to forgive and forget. It is normal for family and friends to shed tears as they seek forgiveness from each other, on the first day of Hari Raya.

Unlike in previous years, people now don't spend as much as they used to for Hari Raya. Celebrations are on a more moderate scale. Only sufficient food -- rendang and ketupat among others -- is prepared so that they do not go to waste.

House decorations are kept to a minimum. Not so much of the colourful decorative lights now. Celebrations are like how it is for Hari Raya Aidiladha, which some have come to regard as not as "major" a festival as Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Frankly, it is good to be thrifty. To burn holes in our pockets just to look better than everyone else on Hari Raya is not very smart.

Hari Raya may have lost its lustre for me but I want my daughter to have a memorable celebration every year. I want her to go through the same experiences that I did when I was her age.

I understand, that now it is her turn to have as much fun as we did in the past. Donning her first baju kurung and receiving her first duit raya packet not too long ago, I saw how happy she was. Truly, she is my bundle of joy.

Now, she is the main reason why I still continue to look forward to Hari Raya. Children are happiest during festive occasions and the house will resound with their laughter. In the kampung, they would be running around with a stick of "Black Cat" brand bunga api in their hand. The sight of them going from house to house is a welcome one indeed. Like a band of scouts, the kids normally move in groups of five. They target the houses with the best cookies and the thickest duit raya packet.

But I've seen some parents who try to curb their children from eating too much even during the festive season. "Don't eat too much! Leave some for the others," hissed a mother during a visit to an open house not too long ago, despite assurances from the host that there was more than enough to go around.

We should not stop children from indulging in food, something they find so much pleasure in, on special occasions. Have a great Hari Raya kids. It's your turn now

Apa itu risk?

Risk is defined by permutation, combination, event,probability, frequency, chance, likelihood, personal probability, Bayesian probability, random variable, variate, expectation, random process, stochastic process, sample space, population, probability distribution function, probability density function, probability mass function, spectral density function, moments of random variable, normal distribution, binomial distribution, geometric distribution, statistical analysis, statistic, confidence, skewness, kurtosis, covariance, correlation etc.

We managed to come out with methods to calculate a percentage of an event to happen. (say a car crash, anak bulan, or pope becomes a father.)

example1 : A car that installed our product when speeding at 140km/h have 20% chances of skidding.
example2 : A car that installed our product when speeding at 140km/h have 50% chances of skidding.

the question is whether the event/accident will happen or not happen.

does it looks like chances of everything to happen is 50-50 regardless of the calculated percentage?

or am i alone?

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

tale to tell

me and my friends have nothing better to do in the middle of the night decided to google kampungchat and .. chat.

Putri Syazana sounds tempting enough for horny malay rempits who are online taking a break from illegal racing. So as expected there are a lot of them came to me.. err... i mean talk to me asking for phone sex or sex. one of them thought sex is spelled sexs. I asked is that sex in plural? and he gets real horny. YES! 1 down wanking! thousand to go! borrringgg. what caught me and my friends attention the most was this really nice guy. but he was moving to fast asking for IM and such. we found out that he's a student at the place im working now.

Therefore we hit the gas at max to get his identity. we gonna need 2 computers then. I was busy delaying him on kampung chat while my other friend was busy setting up a fake email. WE ARE SO AWESOME! now we know who your are!!!!

Next thing to do is to google image gadis melayu and just pick one. bear in mind, the picture chosen must be decent but with bit of sneak preview. That'll work their imagination. again, WE ARE AWESOME! there was this poor malay girl picture circulating around the net that we found most suitable. dark skinned with seethrough kebaya camwhored inside a car. MMM exotic!

YES! he was begging to see more pictures of us! i mean putri syazana.

conclusion: Putri syazana turned out to be a guy and a lecturer at his uni. What are the odds.

This must be a sign.

Petaling Street Stroll

this is Petaling Street
This was straight from negative. I dont have a descent scanner so have to hold it with my fingers in a weird position. Snapped it. Inverted it. My fingers hurt. then straight to bed.

This is Masjid Negara

Big yellow taxi

They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Tukang Karut

Dear weblog,

It has been awhile since you're weblogged. So to make you feel cared and not neglected, let me tell you a story. This is not intended for random viewers nor hiphoppers.. eh bloghoppers. this is solely for "Si Kasut yang Kusut". I will not try to bore you with random short sentences that you probably dont understand... like... the one on your facebook status.,


kamil hamzah is :sedang mengira .... or..
ling siang is :kosong....
Loges is : The problem is not the world... but the problem itself... go vegan.
Anthony is : . <---- dot.

Ok for a start, im no longer a student. I'm tutoring in my old Uni.

SKYK : wahhh really????? eh blah la lu.

Ali : betul. lu ingat wa takle ngajar? ni dalam badan ni darah panas weng weng nak ajar anak2 muda ni. lek aaa... jgn gitu skali... lek lek komplek, rewang rewang ampang, lepak lepak setapak.

SKYK : lu ajar apa brader?

Ali : ajar budak jadi baik la. sambilan pulak wa ajar fizik.

SKYK : pergh!!!

Ali : seronok wei. tadi wa cer pasal termometer. kena pulak termometer alcohol. wa pasang topik panassss!!! alcohol dalam masakan tu haram ke tak haram. berapa kandungan alcohol dalam tai song. adakah tai song melepasi kriteria minuman berakohol ataupun minum alkohol. semmat riuh satu kelas.

ok. i'll continue my letter to si kasut yang kusut instead of having a dialogue. so.. teaching, one thing it had taught me. that is to have a gap. you can be nice but you must always create a gap. I dont mind students that are willing to lick my butt, but in order to lick you must first buy me 'milo ais' then only you can lick as you seem fit.

Within few months of this life, the skin around my face seems to be alot thicker. there are students who always there to test you , whether you are knowledgeable enough and you remember what they always tell you in the email, like hardwork will give you 100%, the love of god will give you 101%. but i counted, bullshit will give you around 143% . but not too much, not too much okay.

I just hope my voice wont crack while giving a lecture.


It is fun to see how students try complete a given task.. one of the student wrote the conclusion for his shipyard operation assignment :

"although in shipyard we must be very alert, accident can still happen everywhere. it doesnt matter who you are or what you're. when god says kun faya kun, and so it WILL happen.

thank you very much
take care. "

till next time. going to work everyday is an adventure. i'll continue my story sometimes. bye!

the road not taken

The road not taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
