So, It's my 22nd Birthday...

I feel like don't want to post because there were fun parts and also the no-so-fun parts

The fun part were, impromptu break-fast at Bora Ombak!!!
I was on the cloud nine when I heard first from my dear friends
We didn't plan to be at such exquisite place
A simple berbuka and maybe pieces of cakes would do but we were blessed for more
We only planned to break fast at the common food court

Besides, I had a good time with the two of them
But I felt bad that I was out late from the office and needed to pay a bill
Even we were afraid of getting there late, we were there early
We had no idea what to do to pass the time, we took some pictures
Despite the uneasiness in the office wear, like I care
I was enjoying the time of my life

Another fun part were to say thank u to those who wished
I am so happy, and still is
I don't think I could thank them enough
*senyum sampai telinga*

The not-so-fun part was that, most of my best friends were not wishing me
I felt so bad that I'm gonna kill them if I see them now
It's birthday! A BIG DEAL!!!
Before this, I always took birthday for granted
And I'm not doing that now
I try my best not to forget since I'm forgetting much now
Trying very hard
Again, very hard not to forget
Aren't they take any initiative to do so?
They seem like not to care
If they care now, it still minimal, not enough
Go to hell la!
I'm fuming right now

I'm fasting
I'll be patient

May what are the wishes by the well-wishers are coming true, about my dreams and all that
Thank u very much for those who made my day
Thank u very much for those who don't
I'm really sorry if my words in this post hurt u, I didn't mean it
I'm just being human

So, Ramadhan Back in School

When my best friends and I were in school, we used to break fast together
Almost everyday except for certain weekends
Actually, I'm overwhelmed with all those memories that I couldn't really write about it
So many things crept into my mind
So many good even funny memories

Lemme share some of it
We used to break fast at the surau that is meant for visitors that's called Al-Abrar
We were never allowed to eat elsewhere except for the dining hall
But we were young foolish and happy
Rules are made to be broken
That was what most of the people said
Even, we ate at the gazebo near to the edge of the cliff at the back of the school building
Also, we had our break fast at the at the ironing room
It was fun!!!

What we ate?
One of us love so much kuih cara berlauk
We always had it because he liked it so much that he ordered from those who were going to the bazaar
Every classes took turns to go to the bazaar
Murtabak was also another must have thing
We even created murtabak with extra flavour of ubat gegat since we always lost our remaining food that we hung outside of Musolla for moreh
Intending to teach those who steal a real good lesson that we even thought of being expelled because the trial of murder

When we were up for sahur
Everybody got up very late
One of my friends were really scared of dehydration that he drank a 1.5L bottle water during sahur all to himself

After Asar prayers, we had our tadarus
One day, one juzu'
We were sleepy heads already at that time
We always tried to sneaked out, not to be at the tadarus
Naughty innit?
Tido kat dalam bilik asrama
Kalau tak bernasib baik, abes kena sembur dengan air time tengah syok tido

Oh my goodness, I just couldn't recall a whole lot more
I'm really sorry
I hope I would be able to do so

All in all, it was fun!
I hope I am not totally disappoint u guys
See u in the next post

So, I Finished Reading 'When In Rome' by Gemma Townley

I hope I got the author's name right
Please note that I was saying it in a singsong loudly that I danced along with it
Rasa nak nyanyi lagu Fergie jugak pun ada
I finished the novel on my first working experience during fasting month
That's soooooo kewl!
After a very loooooooooong time trying to finish it up

Ok, back to the main agenda
When in Rome is about a story of Georgie Beauchamp who was in love with Mike but the split that she went for David, a very romantic and responsible accountant lover
She is very witty, I like her character so much
Since the story is form the first view perspective, which the author - who is also a cellist, a bassist and a singer - choose to see from the view of Georgie
That is when I get to feel like I was her
I mean, I love the way Georgie describes things and it really likes me
Just that she's a British, I'm a Malaysian
I laughed quite a lot when I read
I read it when I was waiting for trains, filling up my free time
And that makes me like a mad man, looking at his cell and suppressing a hysterical laugh to an uncontrollable giggles
She's so funny
Georgie and David love so much the Roman Holiday movie, starring Audrey Hepburn

The story teaches me that we need to be rational that Georgie ends up to team up with Mike, the bad guy who steals money from people to pretending building up record label company, money laundering instead
This makes me think of integrity
Georgie does not know about the fact that she is being used
The incidence put David's job in jeopardy
David is the one who is responsible to investigate Mike's activities since he is not reporting his financial status
Even David does not know that Georgie is involved since she is told by David to stay away from Mike and there's an arising issue of trust

Georgie feels like she is not being trusted by his own boyfriend and she tries to figure out things on her own
On the other hand, David believes that she was listening to his order, apparently she is not
He's trying to be protective to her, since he loves her so much
I presumed, he is too overprotective of her
In the end, she is the one makes the thing intricate

However, Georgie is the one solves the problem
In addition to the betrayal felt by David, actually, he already has a betrayer
Vanessa, who is his partner in his big accounting firm who has been co-operating with Mike to leech out all of the information about the investigation activities by David
Jane, the David's loyal secretary, loathes Vanessa since the beginning she was with the firm
It's getting more interesting towards the end
The story ends up with a happy ending
She manages to get things unwind with the aid of her funny mother and husband
She learns a lot from the incident, especially on being independent and not being too complacent
She is now ready to face any music she needs to face, in person, not to run away
David intends to change his overprotective behaviour and get back together with Georgie

To me, David and Georgie makes a perfect couple
I love the part when they are together, so romantic, omit the erotic part
It's not that so much porn in it
Just soft porn
Then, the story is so loooooooong and the plot is expanding quite late
It makes u feel tired of waiting
But that's actually the thrill of reading
I learn to read in between lines by really imagining the setting
Not perfectly equal to the author's imaginations, at least it fits the situation, provided the language barriers
That help to understand the story
I still having problem to tell story from a story
Always get haywire

The story demonstrates the internal conflicts that may occur to all of us daily
How to make decision, it's a yes or no
To tell or not to tell
To find out or just let it go
To do it or not to do it
It's immaculately explained it out
I love it so much
I know the story is quite common but the way the author puts everything together is immensely interesting
I would give 4.5 out of 5 stars
Try to google it up for more information
Gotta go to bed now
See u in the next post

So, it's Ramadhan 1433H

Alhamdulillah, it's the second day of fasting
I felt as if I'm facing a hard time to begin my fasting session for this year
The feeling of excitement that had been the feeling to welcome Ramadhan was not the feeling for this year
I was so gloomy, so sad, and the consternation was unexplained
I don't know why I was having that kinda feeling
But I believe, there's something behind it
So, I braced myself to stay strong

Yesterday was my first time to help my sister to open a booth at a bazaar Ramadhan in Kg Kerinci, selling nasi ambeng, a signature food for Javanese and other dishes for break fast
At first, the idea to help was the last thing that I would consider
In fact, I don't like handling F&B
So, I was not looking forward to it
Then, when I was there, I was struggling to keep up with the tempo
To add up the frustration, ketibas (ketiak + basah = ketibas) was inevitable
I was totally wet under my armpit and that was a total discomfort
There still something to 'enhance' my frustration, my favourite shirt was spilled with some of the kuah lemak, same went to my favourite jeans
My goodness, I had no idea how much the frustration had been multiplied
However, I braced myself with more patience
Trying to find entertainment in all of the bad luck

Today, it was better
Less frustration
Everything went well
And I am grateful for what happened on the previous day
It taught me to be more careful with my steps taken
I started reading Message in the Bottle by Nicholas Sparks
Actually I have 2 pending novel besides this one that I just started
I want to really feel the story
Not only blindly reading it
Ish, rasa macam obligated to finish it up when I started something up
So, I need to finish either three of them before proceeding with another new one
I want to finish the novels within these two months
I know it's impossible but I am only planning to do so
So that I've something in mind that rings, to remind me I've got something to do when I've got nothing to do

Tomorrow, first time bekerja di bulan puasa
Rasa macam nak berbuka kat hotel
Tapi boleh ke?
Hm, will see what happen
Semoga semuanya baik-baik belaka

Selamat menyambut Ramadhan almubarak
Semoga segala keberkatan hidup dapat dipertingkat dalam bulan penuh barakah ini
Diharap dapat digunakan masa ini sehabis baik!
See u in the next post

So, 2nd Year is Over

As time went by as fast as lightning bolt that I barely felt its movement
Now, I'm waiting for the train to come, for the time to tweet again since I exceeded my daily tweet limit just to spread the news about Haley Reinhart's new single release, Oh My! featuring B.O.B.
Great song, u guys should check it out!

My semester 2 has come to an end
To tell you the truth, I'm dreading about the results
Rumour has it the results will come out on 3rd of August
I think that to early
I haven't do much about being seriously studying and getting to learn about those subjects
And I didn't redeem myself by revising so hard for the finals
And that added up my worry
However, everything is said and done
I think, it's better for me to stay calm, keep on praying for the best
I need to believe that exam is the assessment to see the level, high or low, that we can examine ourselves in order to do a better job
Hoping for the best

Now, already in the train, heading to may internship place, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur for the second session
Now, in Financial Department
I have not set what I would like to expect to learn but again, I want to observe
To learn how to really work
To function accordingly
That's what I want to do since role-play is the best way to learn at this point of age
I'm about to arrive
Excited or not excited?

To all my friends,
Happy semester break
Have a great holiday ahead
Happy fasting
Do as much beneficial activities as u can
Prepare for the next semester will be better
Early preparation will allow us more fun
See u guys anytime soon
Lotta love, Haley Reinhart *ehh

OK, I'm already at my destination
Will blog from time to time
See u around, PlummyPeachies!

So, grateful is the new way to widen the horizon

Being grateful is not something to show that you are lame or what
It's a very effective way to keep peace of mind as well as to keep positive
Some people urge themselves to be happy but they are struggling to be happy
That can involve so many factors
I read a Tweet that said, "Ungrateful people tends to complain so much"
If u stop complaining, will not make u less amazing, since cursing seems to be stylishly fabulous in the eye of most teenagers nowadays
It's "cool"
That's what they say
Apparently, it's only for a short term of fame that turns out to be shameful
Then, better to live an average life that filled with millions, even millions of happiness

Happiness is something that is differed from each of us
Some people find that a smile across the street is pleasing
Some people find that a hello from a perfect stranger is entertaining
Yes, it may appear to be inviting danger
But, let's make it a neutral condition
Be open, not too judgemental

To express our gratitude can be in so many ways, depending on its viability that can be added with our creativity
Studies has shown that showing gratitude affect the person
Showing gratitude can reduce the stress and also alleviate inappropriate psychological problems by staying positive

Expressing gratitude can be a motivator
An observation conducted at a jewellery shop that the customers tendency to come back at the shop going up to 70% when the goldsmith said thank you for each business
It is also proven as the tipping for a waiter is higher on the bill when the waiter thanks the guests

Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and social relationships
Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance
Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life, being more likely to seek support from other people, reinterpreted and grow from the experience, and spend more time planning how to deal with the problem
Grateful people also have less negative coping strategies, being less likely to try to avoid the problem, deny there is a problem, blame themselves, or cope through substance use
Grateful people sleep better, and this seems to be because they think less negative and more positive thoughts just before going to sleep
And so many more positive results

The effect of being positive appear to be clearer when the people express their gratitude to a person that they think they want to thank to
It is as simple as sending a Thank You card, or email or any of the means available that may include SMS
Besides, keeping a Gratitude Journal is another way
It's widely used to treat psychological problem
It's not entirely make u an insane guy if u do this
Just be grateful to try this method and not to complain
If u complain, it shows how ungrateful u are
So, just try
What about it?

Gratitude Journal can be in any form which traditionally using, literally a journal
In that journal, u're to write 3 things that you are grateful for
Since nowadays we are pampered with so many technological advancement
So, use them wisely
I suggest u to use Twitter to be your Gratitude Journal
Let's go green! Ahakz

Let's try this
3 things I'm grateful for after writing this post are:

1. I'm grateful that I'm surrounded with ever-loving and caring friends especially close physically and at heart like Farah for being very attentive and caring. I just can't imagine life w/o u, Bong for being immensely patient, Yana for making everything more fun. These are the people who keeps me happy everyday. And to those unmentioned here, doesn't make u unimportant. U guys are extremely important! Loads of love...

2. I'm grateful that I can be in touch with all my loved ones instantly

3. I'm grateful that I'm halfway through my finals.

The journal can be as short as one word for each point, depending on our creativity
Gratitude are affected by these 8 aspects which are appreciation of people, possessions, the present moment, rituals, feeling of awe, social comparisons, existential concerns, and behaviour which expresses gratitude
We need to look at these aspects since they are the determinants of us being gratitude and affects the results of being positive

So, it's up to u, your consideration and discretion to decide, to keep up with this ever challenging world of us
Make your decision, to stay happy or gloomy
Cheers everybody!

So, it's unfair or what?

Life has never been considered to be as fair, by most of the people
We are not able to really feel that we are treated fairly
Speaking of fairness, there's nothing really can explain what's fairness
In all the bad things happening, it's not only the bad effects are rising, there are also a good one
For example, u got robbed, u felt as if u lost a lot of money. But, w/o u realizing it, u turned out to be even more careful in every steps u made, provided u're a very extra extra careful person

Speaking about a person, there are nobody can make u feel that he or she have treated u good all the time, and also either way around
Humans are made with weaknesses
We can't avoid that
We can only reduce it to the maximum level possible but not all
Even he or she has tried their best, but when we expect to be treated well, but he or she doesn't meet the expectation
So, it's unfair for them to be treated by us badly since we were not satisfied
Then, who's at fault under this circumstance?
We don't know, right?

Therefore, it's nice to give and take at most of the time
It's also not wrong for u to throw tantrums and being rebellious
However, accept the fact that other people will do the same, just like how u wanted
Maybe the degree is different since we are not robots programmed to be a uniform species
Everybody is programmed to be who they are

Things are not always like we wanted
Be flexible, not too rigid
Even the people that we think that is not worth our love and attention, our assumption is not entirely true
People who we think deserve it might not be the one who deserve it, it may be for the ones we hate since they are not really that bad actually

So, there's no rigid answer to this question
So many answers can be given

Before I finish, I wanna make a birthday shoutout to my dear best friend, Fuad Mohamad
May u achieve what u wanna achieve
May God bless u, ur family, friends, and our friendship
Till death do us apart
U guys can wish him on Twitter
His tweet handle is @fuadxy

And, I just love Haley Reinhart new album, Listen Up!
U guys should check it out and she really will get u to listen up to her songs
They are awesome
I just found out about it yesterday, around this time, 3am sth
Go and check out
It's awesome!

Remember, to give and take
Take it or leave it.

so, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

Just love so much, this song ever since Jessica Sanchez performed on Idol :)
Love the shortened version, really like the one Jessica sang on that show.
Enjoy :)

"Bohemian Rhapsody"

Mama just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.
Mama, ooh
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
Mama, ooh, I don't want to die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye.
So you think you can love me and leave me to die.
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the wind blows.
