Sad Story

today
i light up another star for you
today i remembered you
remembered of the careless days
of the mystery phone calls
days we met, but we did not say hello
it reminded me of you today
of the mails and poems and letters
of delirium in the joyful seasons
distance and mothers hiding our story
from fathers so strict and angry
calls of anger and delight

i light up another star
for the days we met, and held hands
in the park, around the moonlight
reflections
and why it mattered so much
that it kept me from others
and other days of death

today another silence
and another star in the sky
the few minutes before each blink
of the electronic lights
i remembered how our separation
was meaningless
as it was never real never an illusion
rummaging through past memories
sad days where you cried
not knowing i was there
for you
and the days i wandered, lost
not knowing you waited for me

today
I light up the final star
for the memories of us
of the tragedy of life
for not bringing us together
even when knowing
we were meant to be
together

Of Knives, the USD and 4 am Snacks

[The Knife Updated]
Dope!@# ok, I should have investigated this earlier, another one of my tube light moments. There were no knife wielding murder maniac outside the apartment. The sound came from my own kitchen! bah! the freaking lizards were playing behind the knife hanging on the wall. Now dont tell me...but, people do hang knives right? Bloody lizards...grrr...the knife had to be thrown coz I think now its cursed. Ok, back to your lovely weekend folks...nothing to see here :( Im going nuts, you are right guys, Alok, Cindy...I Yam Going Nuts!

[Original] One of the 'perks' of staying awake till late is that you get to hear cool sounds. Usually it'll be dog barking, cats...meowing(?) and the occasional female ghost shrieks. But all that ain't enough to scare me until the fateful morning a few days ago I heard the sound of a knife. So Vj asked me, how could you hear the sound of a knife. Heck I don't know 'how', but when you hear it, its t…

Into The Wild

'The Final and Great Adventure'

You know its not about how many movies you watch, not even if your a movie buff. Even if you pick and choose the best, most probably there are some great ones you'll miss. And sometimes even the great ones are not for everyone.

For starters, the mystery that Hollywood is, is easy to decipher. They are just full of bloated movie studies pitching for dollars rather than sense. But in the end, everyone a scholar of the H school, what does it stand for, the cultural reference point that is. And once in a while, even this commercialized movie-land can deliver a gem that's so devastatingly real that you feel like other movies are just not worth it.

But this is not about the movie, its about the man who made it real, and then got made into a movie. Into the Wild is a true life story of Christopher McCandless, who from the summer of 1990 went on a soul searching adventure to Alaska. The movie version of the story is directed by Sean Penn.

Pigs in the Rain

Liverpool FC down the Drain...
This is where we sat
under a torrential thunder storm
beside a flooded road
with the satellite signal cut for a good part of the second half
to watch Liverpool failing to beat Manure U
for the nth time in the EPL
since Rafa's charge at LFC
and how many times of it
during the last 8 years
did LFC have to play
with 10 men on the pitch?
Anyone still remember?
English referees are a bunch of bollocks.


[#] Did I get the bollock right? I'm mad as hell grrrrrrrrrrrr...

Eternity Flowers in Lost Galaxies

When they spoke of love, it was always everlasting, beautiful moments and heartbreaking separation. It was always the extremes, things to achieve for it wont be love anymore. It was the same for ages, for now, in the future where we left earth for new sunsets.

On a cold morning outside school, she came from the mist. I've watched many, lost in my perceptions of perfections not knowing that she simply looked at my heart, the true one. I was on the throne of my egoistic dogma believing only the beautiful, not knowing how shallow my believes were.

Orion, she left me along the mountain ranges of the most beautiful galaxy I have ever seen. It was a dream. Orion and I walked the shores of young oceans, witnessing the birth of life in insignificant worlds, where humans have lost hope of finding God. We witnessed history again and again repeating the same coda, the chords of destiny striking perfectly with the same outcome. Repetitions.

Glory Days

Last Sunday was my cousin, Kugan's convocation in UUM. So the whole family headed there, turned out to be a major clan gathering. It was a hot, very hot afternoon, a lot of babes...i mean graduates and a lonely Ghost.
I get a kick out of it every time some relative ask who I am...well the truth is I am a ghost at home too :p

UUM's MAS Hall, probably the biggest university hall in the country, and the most beautiful


This is Kugan. Proud day for him and on the way to become a Teacher soon, thats his passion for life.


The young clan members with a better fashion sense. They try and try to change me...sigh it never works


Grandma...the 'glue' that keeps the families together (and a 'war veteran' if you remember my past posts)

Kugan again...

I don't know what's the symbolism of this...but I guess it's the flight of the Phoenix...charting a new future for everyone who walks the halls of the university

:-(

Sorry guys, down with a bad flue and fever. Will be back soon.
Was it me who wanted to blog till 2050? Sigh...
Oh! and guess what? The satellite TV subscription is off! Wohoo! (ouch...there's pain all over the body, I don't think this is normal flue N' fever)

Gastronomical Landscapes

What do you do when your have bloggers block, are running away from family and relatives talking about marriage and kids, post election news, and reality?
Why you post your boring ass travel photos!
Enjoy... All travels start with the noble idea of snapping artistic photos that will awe the world and bring loads of feel good comments. This is at a small fishing jetty somewhere in rural Kedah (we got lost :P)

And when you see the expanse of the landscape, you feel free...one with the world. Those tiny white things are storks eating something on the empty paddy fields. If someone counted, there would be about 547 of them in this picture alone.

And the magnificent sunsets, the sky burning the polluted air and the resulting shades of orange and...hmmm...more orange.

And when you get bored of it all, you eat! The drinks are from left to right; Chinese tea, Iced Milk Tea, Longan drink and a chrysanthemum tea. And the food is char koay kak!


Or you can head to Penang and hop on a beca and eat real h…

No. Trust me on this. No. Dont watch it, dont even go near it. Please. If you want Woolly Mammoths watch the docu channels, otherwise please stay indoors kids!

As the early season piece of craps coming flying out of Hollywood for 2008, I will be your guide on how to save 10 bucks, your dignity, prevent nightmares and countless Whys'.

If you must, just watch the trailers coz thats the only good stuff all conveniently mashed up for you from the movies.

Or just read a Book.

the people's voice will reign and echo in Parliament!"

People Power - Makkal Sakthi

History will speak of this day in Malaysian Politics on how the Internet, New Media, Blogger(s) and Blogs, YouTube, the Cellphone and Al-Jazeera gave voice to People Power and a big victory for the People's Front.

History will also write, how the ruling government dismissed all this and how their greed cost them everything.
And how the Malaysian Indians voted out the Malaysian Indian Congress party.

Starting Monday 10th of March 2008, the Peoples Front with 5 states in their bags and a commanding 80 seats in the Parliament will make sure the rights of the Malaysian people be justified for the first time in 50 years by an Alternative Peoples Coalition.

And probably Rajni would not know this, but Sivaji the Boss...actually brought in votes in Malaysia. This is true.

[+] And like what TS wrote, the Penangites might just be the first in the world to have voted in a blogger into Parliament!

Vote for Change

We Vote For Change Today!
Today We Make History


I will VOTE FOR CHANGE today.

WILL YOU?
YOU MUST!

Think of your future, think of you children,
THINK OF YOUR COUNTRY

Remember what the past generations has gone through to build this nation, all the races who sacrificed their days, their lives to make this country stand out in the eyes of the world. For hundreds of years our ancestors struggled in various conflicts, they worked in rubber plantations and death railways and today OUR OWN COUNTRY IS DISOWNING US.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT INDIANS ONLY, ITS ABOUT EVERYONE, EVERYONE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF MALAYSIA.

And do you want to let it crumble because of greedy politicians? Because of race politics? Because of extraordinary ambitions of certain politicians? Do you want rule of fear? Are they doing anything about the increased crime rate? The increasing prices of products and services?
NO!

GO OUT THERE TODAY AND VOTE FOR CHANGE. TELL YOU FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS, EVERYONE. THIS VOTE IS A VOTE FOR OUR FUTURE. A…

Lives of Others

how words touch more
(for) a person who observes the world
that beyond its pain and cruelty
are lives of beautiful people
and their beautiful journeys
and then
warm drops of tears
from the eyes of some ghost
indeed
the world is full of hope
and love

*I shall be your guide
I shall be your student
I shall live and I shall die
In the memories of others

Hillary 'I cry I get Nomination' Clinton

Oookay...abit of sanity returned, and it seems the delegate count difference is the same, Obama is still leading. And of course Hillaton is not letting up. But the sweet news is she is considering to run together with him, gasp! medications working? but she quickly cleared the warm bubbly feeling filling up democrats everywhere when she said he can be number two, just like everyone wants it. Good, Hillary can be numero uno, for about a term, or two or until she gets impeached, while Obama can be number 2 for 2 terms, and then number 1 for another 2 terms. That gives him a good 16 years to clean up America and bring some order to the world. (im good at basic math which make no real world sense). So anyway, why do I support Obama? Well coz theres like 26 million people in this country who wishes he was our Leader...hech...the whole word wishes he is our Leader. Along with Oprah as vice president, Denzel Washinton as Sec of State, and maybe give Rusell 'Gladiator' Crowe the Sec o…
