Words I should have said

Words I should have said

Life doesn't comes with a rewind switch
and here i am, standing on my feet
you seemed young, with a smile on your face
forever will it be, in memory you'll be embraced

The moments, it was there
between the laughters, along the stairs
beneath the trees, at the end of the field
under the stars, i nearly whisper to you

Words just doesn't seem to form easily
when you are around, 
there are times when they nearly slipped,
yet they rolled back from my tongue 

All i can do is guess, and i guess you knew
what you meant to me, and me to you too
but it just doesn't feel right, without uttering to you
and all i can do now is hope, i hope you knew

So many instances, so many slipped me by
so many chances, until there comes goodbye

The moment, it was there
all along, i should have said


Every job is noble

Maybe, this young girl's job below is not your average dream job, or even side job. But for some, this is at least a legal and decent way, or even, the only way to make a living. If it were you, would you feel ashamed to work as she did while your friends passes you by? Would you still held your head high?

The photos below about a young girl mascot was spreading in internet forums in China, and has been a public discussion. The sender claimed to be a professional photographer, and immortalised the hard work of this girl mascot silently through his lens during the Guangzhou Auto Show last year.

I dedicate this to her (and all those who is working hard to earn a healthy living everyday)

Millions of people passing through.
Some were hasty and swift,
some were strolling slowly by.
But out of so many, do they see me?

I wore a suit not cos i've things to hide,
I wore a suit, with all my might.
There's even a mask for me to wear,
a mask, that's suppose to make everyone stare.

With my full suit on, i'm ready to go,
to welcome everyone, to greet every soul.
I might have to walk, stand, pose and wave,
but it's worth it, when i see the smile on their faces.

Ah, it's been hours and hours now,
the comfy suit is almost like steaming clouds.
I quietly find a deserted space,
took of the mask, and wipe my face.

"Hi, so it's you wearing this,
all these while I thought  its a 'He'",
The cleaner auntie took me by surprise,
I gave a friendly smile, while I looked her in the eye.

"Another 5 minute," I told myself quietly.
Hoping to dry off the sweat, with the soft soothing wind.
Though it's hard and hot and stuffed,
but to earn a living, I know it has to be rough.

A sophisticated lady passed me by,
I gazed up, with a glow in my eye.
When would it be my turn to shine?
Would it be tomorrow? Or is it tonight?

With a deep long breath, I stood up and smile.
A job is waiting, lets make it worthwhile.
I might not be, the car showgirl on the side,
but I promised myself, I'll always keep my head held high!

(This poem was written based on the pictures below, in dedication to the unknown mascot girl)

A mile away i saw your smile
you waved and asked me politely
if you could stop and stay awhile

And here you are dressed delightfully
we sat and talked about yesterdays and
tomorrows over a cup of fresh brewed tea

But tomorrows seems uncertain and dark
your voice started to shake and tremble
when you recalled the journey we've embarked

It's then when your tears started to fall
you weeped gently
and the whole sky gave it its all

Soft drizzles touched our cheeks 
Black clouds were adorning above
with occasional lightning at the mountain peak

And then large teardrops came gushing down
hitting every objects below equally hard
every where seemed disastrous, every where on the ground

Its like no more sunshine can be found
and together gone the hope for a future
yet nature celebrates with melodious sound

Beyond those blurring eyes you saw
plants are blooming, seeds growing
and frogs are dancing and singing for all

Fishes are swimming gladly, ducks waddling by
It seemed like you came and 
everyone welcomes you with a smile

And so i pat you on the shoulder
gave you a warm  long hug
and pray that tomorrows will be better

And i can assure you that tomorrow
might be uncertain and dark
but there will always be sunshine
after a heavy rain

(p.s: I wrote this after been through 12 hours of non-stop rain here in K.Terengganu, looks like its Tengkujuh all over again =P )

Going Green: Facts & Myths

As we mark Earth Hour, we're reminded of our collective responsibility in caring for the planet. After all, if the environment founders, so do we.

There are many claims out there on how best to live an environmentally-friendly life. You'll be surprised how many of them are misunderstood, or just plain wrong. Some of them, of course, are true. Which is which?

1. Off is not OFF
Stock Xchng (Stock Xchng)

Claim: Turning devices off is enough.

Fact: Not exactly. Perhaps especially relevant to Earth Hour, the truth is quite a few electrical appliances continue to draw power even after the switch is flipped to the 'off' position. This occurence is (very appropriately) termed 'vampire power'. To be really sure, unplug them from their sockets too.

Thank YOU Nuffnang!

I know i have been busy,
extremely busy and occupied,
and my unique visitors are below 200 daily,
but still, you have faith in me,

to stay a lil longer in my humble blog,
and make it merrier for others to stop.

How to be 24-hours tech-free?

People (you and me) nowadays are relying heavily on technologies.
Cellphones, smartphones, laptops, televisions, and so on.
Once awhile, why not try to be 24-hours tech-free?
Here's how:

Tsunami in Japan: Dog won't leave friend behind

I bet even not all humans are willing to treat one another with such loyalty, especially is times of difficulties like this. 

according to yahoo, the dogs were rescued. I quote: "CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town."

Would you stand for hours?

Would you stand for hours?
 just to have your chance to get in the convenience shop?
No one here is seen to jump queue, and every one is waiting patiently.
This is truly a respectable nation, with high morality citizens.
And here we are boasting how advance we are, 
cutting queue is everyday drama, seen in malls, cashier counters, and worse, the free milo car.

When would we all learn to at least think of others first before ourselves?
You might say its impossible, but the whole Japan nation can prove you wrong.

At Tokyo Disneyland:
Tokyo Disneyland was handing out its shops’ food and drinks for free to the stranded people nearby.  I saw a bunch of snobby looking highschool girls walking away with large portions of it and initially though “What the …”  But I later I found out they were taking them to the families with little children at emergency evacuation areas.  Very perceptive of them, and a very kind thing to do indeed. 
国連からのコメント「日本は今まで世界中に援助をしてきた援助大国だ。今回は国連が全力で日本を援助する。」 に感動した。良い事をしたら戻ってくるのです。これがいい例なのです
Message from the UN
Secretary General Ban Ki Moon: “Japan is one of (the UN’s) most generous and strongest benefactors, coming to the assistance of those in need the world over.  In that spirit, the United Nations stands by the people of Japan and we will do anything and everything we can at this very difficult time.”  I was moved at his words.  What better example that good things happen to those who do good.

Are we moving too fast?

Saw this 'beca' on the street of Kuantan few days ago

no one owns it,
and no one seems to have enough of it.

It was just less than few decade back,
when Trishaws roams the road instead of
petrol-fueled machines that disrupt the environment.

People greet each other every morning,
have a cup of coffee at the old coffee house downtown,
and carry on their daily chores with a light smile and a warm heart.

It was those time, 
when children would sip from the coffee cup's plate,
and asked for roti canai with condensed milk to dip with.

It was those time,
when not finishing your food would be a humiliation to the farmers,
and children can find happiness almost anywhere they went.

And then things start moving fast.
Roads have to be paved wider to make way for cars.
People start to get busier than ever.

The greeting stops.
No more over-the-coffee talk.
Daily chores are followed by stress and worries.
Children can have their own cup of drink now.
More if they wished. 
And roti canai are less favoured compared to those fast food chains.
Ordering food and leave it half finished is a symbol of wealth now,
and children are glued with electronics than the world outside.

And when everything is moving so fast,
so fast that some can't even have time to catch a breath,
a blue trishaw with a yellow umbrella passed me by,
and reminded me, "slow down, there's still a long way ahead."

Ideals are like stars

"Ideals are like stars
you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. 
But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, 
you choose them as your guides
and following them you
will reach your destiny."

There's boundaries to everything.
A form of wall that you just can't cross over.
There's boundaries, no matter how close you are.
There's boundaries, and some just like to get so near.

Some might tripped over it accidentally,
some choose to trigger it and enjoy watching the aftermath.
Some might not even know of it's existence,
But there are boundaries, that's all to it.

Pushing the limits, some may call it.
Crossing over those boundaries, 
and the consequences may just be unbearable for both.
So, stay on that side of the land, please.

It may seems impolite to chase away trespassers,
especially when anger is steering the whole operation.
So, as polite as one may looks from the outside,
please, if you cross over, you are but
a piece of paper fueling the fire in him/her.
