Funny (maybe not so) encounters

I was on my way back to KLIA from Langkawi the other day. I sat next to this nice English family (I was hoping for a scottish accent but alas..)of five- the blonde father, the brunnete mother, two blonde sons and one brunnete daughter. I sat next to the mother who was really friendly.

When we were half way through our travel, the stewardess gave us peanuts and buah kurma since it was the holy month of Ramadhan. One of the blonde sons was so excited when he got those peanuts and began eating them. The buah kurma given was the rather long ones so when the boy took them and looked through the plastic, he said to his little siblings in a rather excited tone,"Oh, they gave sausages!" And I was trying not to laugh out loud. I sort of covered my small laugh with a cough at the end. haha. Then, the parents corrected the boy saying it was dates. Later on, the boy tasted the kurmas and said,"I don't think I like it that much", and then,he throw it away.

And then today, I went to Pejabat MARA to take the financial statement from En. Khaizan for my visa application. At the lobby, I thought they were having an event but it was the H1N1 campaign where before anyone go up the elevator to all the MARA offices, their hands have to be sanitized. Then, I was stopped by the makcik at the pengawal counter she said sternly," Adik pakai selipar ye? Nak naik ofis tak boleh pakai selipar" . And I was a bit shocked (though it was actually my fault, wearing flipflops a.k.a selipar jamban to Bangunan Mara hehe), then I said, "huh..oh so tak boleh naik langsung ek?". She gave me the 'too bad sucker' look and simply said, "tak boleh".

Being me, well at least being me right now, I am just too tired to curse myself or the lady. Besides, it was bulan puasa (this statement always makes me annoyed because it's as if you can do all the dirty deeds during the other months)Anyways,...where was I? oh right being me, I decided to take out this frustration because not only I just travelled by car alone and got stuck in a jam for about one and a half hour to get there...haih... ok i handled the anger and frustration in stride with a short but sweet shopping spree!!! weeeeee~~~~~

Since the makcik said I cannot go up with selipar, I went to the Pertama complex(by the way Pertama complex is in the lyrics of Meet Uncle Hussain's La La La Kerja lah...pretty kewl..kinda like the Beatles and Abbey Road) next door and went to the nearest shoe shop where I bought a pair of boyish sneakers! yup yup you heard me sneakers! boyish! non-heels shoes!and then I terus pakai...heeee the Chinese girl selling the shoes was really nice..she ikat the shoe lace for me, nicely and i dunno...she just sounds soft spoken and seemed really nice.

haha so thanks to the bitter makcik at the lobby, I got myself a pair of shoes! hoorayyyyy!!!

Trima kaseh makcik!

Beyond stupidity

I've learned rather early in my life that life isn't perfect. You can make mistakes. You can cheat in a 1st grade exam and not just get away with it but also received RM50 from dad for scoring 100% in the test. Your teachers can be mean at you because they think you are such a spoiled little brat when all you did was acting as a 12 year old because you were in fact 12 at that time. Oh and parents can bicker in front of their children. Like I said life, family, and friends, they all ain't perfect. Parents are allowed to call their kids stupid and make them actually really feel stupid and hopeless even if you manage to get all the As in exam. See, an A does not have anything to do with stupidity. You are not stupid. You are only stupid if you are called stupid by someone else. If you can't avoid being called stupid when you are getting consistent As all your life, imagine getting a C now. What's beyond stupidity? I thought I'd never found the answer to that question. But sadly, I did.

Beyond stupidity lies shame and humiliation. (which actually mean the same damn thing but of course you wouldn't know because you are not very smart which owh by the way,also mean that you are stupid..ahhhaaa)

I guess what I'm trying to say is...I don't know what I'm trying to say. ugggghhh I am just so sad right now.

Wow this is by far, the saddest most pathetic post I have ever written but by far the most honest.

ps: I am trying so hard to conjure up any positive thought in my head but failed,miserably.

.:The Secret Code:.

there was once this girl who said she would never marry for as long as she lived. then, one day, while shopping at a nearby market for apples and herbs, she met the man of her dreams, the Apple man. she swore that he was the most gorgeous man she has ever seen in her entire life. not only that, his politeness and kindness stole her heart in an instance.

the next day, she went to the market again. she looked for him at the fruit section. he was not there. her heart starts racing as she could not find him. she asked the Pear lady next to the apple stall where the Apple man went. the Pear lady answered "the Apple man died last night.there was a fire. his whole house Crumbled in flames." the girl's heart stopped. she could not breathe. she fainted. she woke up the next morning telling everyone in her family that she would never ever let herself fall in love again.

Actually, this stupid story is my way of saying how bored I am right now. But what lies behind this story is actually a dish that I actually baked.

I am currently listening to Taylor Swift's You're Not Sorry and if you buy her album, all of her lyrics are in lower case except few capital letters. These few huruf besar spells out a hidden code a bit more about the songs. I think that's really cool. Love her!

Anyway, by reading the stupid short story, can you find the secret code and guess what sweet dish I'm baking tonight??

I think a five year old can figure this one

note to self: find something better to do.

D-DAY: 10/08/09

*10 August 2009*

Where it can be seen
Hidden in a near tomorrow
Where either or shall prevail
Hidden in either cheer or sorrow

Miles ahead
Beyond those mountains
Are still other peaks
Left for us to conquer
All are not for us to reach

Please dark
Let there be light
Promise to never forget the rain
For each hope could be ignite
Just to feel empty in heartless pain
