Of black tea and Lim Chu Kang

Earlier today, during the madness of the afternoon sun, while Ilham and Hachi were both napping, without any warning, i broke down into an uncontrolled bout of tears. Sipping on my hot tea and reading a very good ebook that i've just purchased, my simple mind managed to wander off into this long abandoned recess. Out of thin air, my thoughts suddenly conjure an image of her. I felt my throat start to swell up.

One of the many things that ive missed not having my own car these days is the convenience to travel. I remember how i used to drive up to Lim Chu Kang Rd on my own all the way from Simei, just so that i could visit her. Deranged as it may seem, but it was one of those few places, those rare moments where i could actually find true solace. Its not so convenient these days.

Oh how i long to see her face again. How i wish Ilham could have been given the opportunity to meet her. She'd adore him. Celebrations these days dont mean much to me. Its one of the reasons why i shrugged at the idea of festivities looming in the near future. Ramadhan and Syawal. Urgh. Blasphemous? Perhaps. But given a different circumstance, i would have been the first to jump at the opportunity of a better day. Better days. I've had that. 

"Vavan, jangan lupa sembahyang"

Her last few words to me.

I disappoint.

How tired I am
Of this unbearable distance between us
How I long for the toll of the recess bell
Have you forgotten me?
Grown mindless of me?
Tell me I am not
Writing into an abyss
Or that is what will become of my heart

This one is about not sucking on any dick

Just a random snippet of a conversation i had with one of my NSF,

"Encik, awak tengok tu. Semua tengah jalan-jalan, pimpin tangan dengan matair diaorang. Tengok kita tengah buat apa..."

It was Chinese New Year/Valentine's Day. So every couple in this world were either busy snogging, cuddling or yam-seng-ing while we were busy attending calls and drenching ourselves with sweat to the very core of our souls. The weather for the past few days has been quite unforgiving and we have been attending quite a number of calls to match. No details shall be spared of course but lets just say that we've been quite busy as of late.

I wrote on twitter a few days back about the movie Hancock and how that show somehow actually inspired me to write this entry. Well, what could possibly be the relation between this fictatious superhero and me? Well, lets see. Firstly, he is an asshole. He couldn't give a damn about manners, good impressions or basic courtesy. He has a drinking problem and nobody likes him. But at the end of the day, he gets the job done. He helps people. Yah, he doesn't do it in the most inconspicuous manner. But the fact was that the city needed him and without him, slowly and subtly, everything starts to fall apart. But the people around him didnt realise that till nearing the end. All they see is some low life scum, making a mess of everything. They thought that they could have done a better job and that they could have made it without him.

Simply put, Hancock GETS THE JOB DONE, but everyone hates him because he doesnt go around sucking on everybody's dick. Ring a bell yet?

Heres some pictures of people that I personally know, who won't suck any dick for anybody, who doesn't give a shit about what YOU think, but yet at the end of the day, still manage to save your burning ass even when your dirty mouth is still busy spewing complains about them.

Pasar Geylang

Hey good people of the world wide web, whom most of which i have never met before. I am back. I have been busy; very busy. Busy with work, busy with life. All thanks to Twitter and also the convenience of mobile data plans, i seem to have neglected my blog for quite a while. Alas, i will try to keep the dedication going strong in the next few weeks or so (i hope). Here are some random snapshots that ive taken during my recent quest to survive all the domineering makciks and ah-sohs in Geylang Serai.

This one is about being grateful

To all my relatives, friends and colleagues etc. My wife and i would like to thank each and everyone of you for gracing our ceremony today. No words could possibly express how happy you have made us feel today. I just wanna extend my fullest gratitude to all for coming, for helping out my parents, for writing in my guestbook, for eating, for performing silat, for setting up the sound system in the middle of the nite, for breaking my table, for making the bunga on my samping, for being my driver, for being my relief driver, for being the bestest best man, for being my mom and my dad, for being my aunties and uncles and wonderful cousins, for being the ahpek giler bawah blok yang ambik gambar kita. Thank you so much for everything. Thank you thank you thank you

Dunno who sia...

A cover of ST12's song - Jangan pernah berubah. Nice song. Hate the singer. Dunno who also. And he needs to put on some clothes
