Thankfully I'm off from the ever-headache environment for about 1 week. There are celebrations to be enjoyed by malaysians through out this long holiday.
1. My birthday (har! har! har! aharon yariv...)
2. Raya Haji (Eidul Adha)
3. Christmas

But I'm actually looking beyond these celebrated holidays. It's actually a period for me to stabilize my stress (we still need stress though). Work really gives me a damn hard time lately. That explains why I really am enjoying being super-lazy and super-sleeper for super-long hours this holiday (huh, everything goes super nowadays).

But the top notch for this holiday would be the bonus which will technically be entering our savings account today. Hahahaha (instead of hohohoho) - laugh like a devil. And, to our home is where all the money will be... and it is according to our plan.

I dont mind because we all know that: Home is where the heart is...

Life is my biggest education playground or perhaps, ours'. Lots of things happened in our life. Some are good, some are bad, some are best to be remembered and some not. As usual, it varies to different people. That's why we are created, well... unique.

In life, we tend to get along well with people whose background/thoughts/interests and such are similar to us. Believe it or not, sometimes we cant even get along with our families in the absence of these factors. That's life.

Not all people with similar background/thoughts/interests and such whose similar to us will go well with us. Sometimes, it might get worse due to misc. internal and external factors. That's why they came out with the wisdom words: Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer.

In life also we decide who's our families, friends, enemies and insignificant others. Here's something for those who's always been the talk about of the shitty-headed people, tell them:
To hell with you, this is my life and you are just insignificant to me.

This is our life and we're responsible for it. It's not that we're being ignorant to advices but your (the shitty-heads) "advice" is more of an insult to us. I have 24 hours a day like everybody else but we aint gonna waste that thinking of your bad mouth.

Sekian, terima kasih.

Guy Fawkes

It's hard to actually describe my feelings on what's happening in our country lately. Dont believe ah? Check this list out:

1. Angkasawan Program
2. BERSIH demonstration
3. HINDRAF demonstration
4. LIMA 2007
5. One of PDRM top person is under ACA investigation
6. The Government plan to purchase SOYUZ
7. Toll rates up
8. Kes Pita Lingam
9. The never ending Altantuya murder case trial
10. Purchase of Sukhoi fighter jet
11. Backseat seatbelt compulsory by next year
12. Bread's price increase not announced to rakyat
13. Perkasakan Bahasa Malaysia
14. India is interfering our treatment to Malaysian's Indian
15. Proton will be launching a new model next year
16. SPR chief knows when will the next general election be
17. Gores & Menang contest banned in Malaysia
18. Engku Emran marries Erra who?
19. Perhimpunan UMNO doesnt need permit
20. I.S.A. is back
21. ...list it out yourself, I'm tired already

Read my subtext on these:

- We still have the program Bersamamu (TiVi-3) aired every week
- More allowance for the police force... for going missing when the traffic needs them
- Naib Ketua Pemuda AMNO is more powerful than his Ketua Pemuda AMNO
- Islam adalah agama rasmi Malaysia
- How generous of Pertonas and Berita Setiap-Harian organizing contests during the year end...
- The Angkasawan Program is our current PM's "greatest achievement"

After all of the above and the best part of all, our beloved PM told us to BERJIMAT-CERMAT.

Footnote: Hopefully our rights in expressing our feelings through personal blogs are not taken away. If THAT happens, lets just simply forget that we ever have internet, MSC, broadbands and all. Democracy eh?

1. Kalau korang tak suka duduk sini, berambus. Jangan nak mengarut dan menyusahkan orang.

2. Sudah-sudahLAH tu menipu... ingat orang sekarang ni tak boleh berfikir ke?

3. Suruh je si Shapeq Apsal tu belikan barang sebab kalau dia yang belikan, harga barang tak naik.

4. Krajaan terpaksa membayar xxx juta kepada syarikat konsesi jika kadar tol tidak dinaikkan (kepala hotak ngkau).

5. Sebaik pengeluar kereta nasional pertama mengumumkan pembatalan kerjasama dengan VW, saham mereka jatuh merudum. Kenapa agaknya ya?

Penatlah nak cerita semua hal yang berlaku kat Malaysia sekarang nih. Fikirkanlah sendiri.

We went to Kluang for a wedding. It was Ely's (Shidah's friend) little sister's wedding - Baby. At first we plan to have an overnight stay there but the plan suddenly changed. Then daytrip it was.

Weather: Panas.
Route map given: Clear.
Food: Excellent.
Overall: Tiring but interesting.

After that we couldnt resist to go to the infamous Kluang Rail Coffee Shop. It is situated of course, at the Kluang railway station (lagi mau tanya). Classic habis. I dont care much about the place but the roti bakar i tell you, is out of this world! Real genius. The coffee, I couldnt quite find its' spark, maybe because I enjoyed the roti bakar more.

Here are some interesting photos I took at the kenduri and during our visit at the original Kluang Rail Coffee (Kluang Station franchise).


Ely's aunt's house. Pink power, in support of her niece's wedding theme (acah je).

The rare looking apam for dessert.

Bunga telur (pindang).

The kompang band. Look at the pakcik with the bass drum, gempak seh!

Fooling with macro.

Bon appetite!

Check this schedule before coming.

I dont actually know what this room does.

Jerawat, pimples, acne, zits dan lain-lain yang seangkatan... To some, there are differences between these but to me, they are all the same. And I hate them! Why? It's really obvious when people around me are asking about what happened to my face and my answer goes... Jerawat!.

Jerawat has never been a problem before but now, it's a BIG issue to me. They just cant help but expanding their territory on my face. Apehal? Here are some theories (I found out myself):

1. My hormones are evolving (marriage aftermath)
2. My antibody is no longer capable of defending thanks to malaysian food (belacan, udang kering, ikan bilis, ikan masin etc)
3. I forgot how important to wash/clean my face before going to bed

I never really care about "facial cleansing activities" before but that had changed now. My silly theory: The more you worry or care, the more likely it will annoy. But I guess this time I'm wrong.

Therefore, I've tried a few products to find out the most suitable to my sensitive skin if I may say.

The cleanser I'm currently using. Actually effective but dries my skin out.

Clearasil Ultra

My other cleanser. Quite suitable for me.


My previous jerawat cream. Flaky.

Clearasil Ultra acne cream

My current jerawat cream. So far so good.

Oxy 10

I'll tell when all my jerawats are gone. Godspeed... to me.

Sesungguhnya, hari ini aku sudah mula berkerja.
Kemalasan menyelimuti seluruh mata, hati dan kaki.
Rasa menyampah itu masih sama, tiada beza.
Ya tuhan, kuatkan semangatku ini.

Firstly, sorry friends for the delay of uploading these photos. Couldnt find any suitable time than today. It was fun having iftar with friends.

Planet Hollywood: Food... bolehlah... BBQ stall panjang macam nak beli tiket bas balik kampung. Verdict aku: I wont come here next year. Sucks.

NZ: Kedai mamak... what do you expect? As long as we got what we ordered, sudah... Verdict aku: When it comes to mamak stall, it's hard to say you wont flock back there unless they really2 sucks.

Speak no more, enjoy the not-so-sharp photos (next time suruh Raddy bawak camera).

This post is a continuation from Nina's blog and comments in my previous post entitled, POST-IFTAR PHOTOS. The issue? Those who went to Cozy's should know.

C'mon people now, 9th October (Tuesday) is the day we're talking about... let the comments box burst!

Wednesday, October 3, 2007


Some people just thought that they are invincible. They can't be taught, they can't be warned, they can't be scold and all. This always happens to those who have reached the so called "comfort zone" of their (working) life... which are full of leniencies. What makes they think there are such zones? I dont know but one thing for sure, it must be from the (working) environment.

A person cant change the world but thyself. When nobody no longer wants to change after penetrating their "comfort zone", what more could you ask of these people? Nothing.

Again, are these people (working) at the wrong place or me? Or am I wasting too much time thinking of this shit?

...I'd better go to sleep...

29 September - Tropicana, Damansara

The attendees (I'm the one who shoots)

That's me and Shidah

Elly and Hajar

The ever-smiling-and-cute little Hajar of Peanut & Sehu (la-la)

Tropicana offer a really (i mean really-really) wide spread of buffet. Best giloss! There were so many food served and it made me go nuts (i cant even list them here, banyak sangat). In short, they have almost all malaysian food on their menu. With RM55 (including tax), memang tersangatlah berbaloi sama ada korang larat makan atau tidak je lah. And not to forget they also have a nice little surau.

30 September - Cozy House, Great Eastern Mall

The controversial venue

Cute little Sara of Herman & Eina

The attendees

I really have to be frank with you people out there, BE REALLY CAREFUL WHEN YOU BOOK TO DINE AT COZY HOUSE GREAT EASTERN MALL. They have this some kind of disease called "ter" or accidental fault. Tak kisah lah TERsalah ambik phone number ke, TERdelete order ke and all the other nonsense TERs are there.

However, alhamdulillah we managed to enjoy our food, i repeat, food at around 830pm and drinks, i repeat, drinks at approx. 9pm. Diorang ingat dapat pahala lebih ke buka puasa lambat? Cheh. Luckily I have some good friends at Starbucks who lend us a temporary "shelter" for quick iftar. Thanks guys!

Check out my fellow kodoks' blog for further details on what happenned to us during the iftar.

Morale when placing a booking to break fast at Cozy House GE Mall during Ramadhan:
1. Double confirm (or more) your phone number they jot down
2. Make sure you're well-versed with their menu because you'll be asked to place your order by 4pm (wtf...)
3. Call them 2 or 3 times for confirmation because the line will always be busy
4. Always be prepared with contigency plans should they screw-up in the last minutes

p/s: Luckily their food is not as bad as their management.

Saturday, September 29, 2007


My weekend is full with friends' iftar sessions. Yep, Saturday - Sunday. Today will be with Shidah's friends at Tropicana, Damansara and Sunday will be with my fellow kodoks at Cozy House, Great Eastern Mall. We were also booked for next Saturday by my childhood friends at Planet Hollywood.

What can I say, the chances to miss the Tarawaikh prayer for attending these sessions are sky high (hehehe... alasan). Well friends, see you there!


The cockpit

Went for my ride's 40k service just now. This particular service centre doesn't use any numbering system for their customers assuming people who comes here have a high civic-conscious mind. Frankly, not all of them have.

It opened at 830am but people were already there as early as 745am and I was there at 8am being the second in the "unofficial line". To make my presence felt, I stayed outside reading newspaper. People started filling the empty parking spaces every minute ever since.

When the shutters up, to my surprise, everybody flocked-in like they never look a Ramadhan buffet spread before, racing to be the first to handover the service booklet to the service desk operator. He arrange the booklets in the order of - who reached his hand first. Huh? What happened to me being the second in line, supposedly? Stretched to number 8 or 10 maybe. WTF...

Luckily it's Ramadhan and my patience is just at its' best level yet. This "dirty trick" really thought me not waste my time popping out of the bed early to get to this service centre next time. Maybe for my little sister's new ride next week.

Cake sekadar perhiasan

It was my beloved wife's birthday on the 27th Sept. Yeah, a bit late for my blog entry but we sure have celebrated that day with berbuka puasa, just the two of us.

Happy birthday!

Pencils from Corbis

Just got hooked with SUDOKU. Interesting. Japanese old timers play this puzzle to sharpen their mind and focus. Try-lah.

p/s: check my sidebar/Interest for an online Sudoku.


POANG armchair by IKEA

Purchased this unique-looking armchair few months back when IKEA hold a sale I've been longing for. Am hooked to this thing everytime I paid a visit there. Moreover, they have this one victimized model where it's being stomped on and off I think from the moment IKEA starts operating. It shows how durable this armchair is. What more could you ask when it comes with a 25-years warranty! Wow! Hebatnya!

But that's not what I'm about to disclose here...

We assembled the armchairs at our Bandar Seri Putra home a few months after we purchased them. Mudah. But unfortunately, one of the sets came without its' stopper (the one with black in colour at the base). At first it was OK until we went back to purchase its' spare part at IKEA's customer service counter (they have this numbering system specifically for spare parts I tell you, go check).

Now listen up (to this compressed conversation):

IKEA: I'm sorry sir, we dont have the stopper. You need to purchase the whole lower base because it comes together.

pye: I just need the stopper and I'm asking to purchase it not get it for free.

IKEA: But you dont even have the receipt with you. You must be fair to us also.

pye: Are you saying we have to keep the receipt for 25 years? (bare in mind it's a thermal printed receipt... you know how long it lasts)

IKEA: Yes (nodding slowly)...

pye: Look, I purchased this armchair early this year. We only assembled it a few months back because we just moved into our new house. Only now we realized the stopper is missing. This is the manufacturer's defect. Are you being fair to me?

IKEA: I'm sorry sir, there's nothing we can do.

pye: Hey, I'm asking to purchase the stoppers. I'm not asking anything for free here.

IKEA: I'm sorry sir, there's nothing we can do about this. I can only give you one stopper.

pye: (what the frak???) This one stopper is useless to me. It's OK, not your fault but do tell the people up there to start selling this parts. Nevermind, I'll complain somewhere else.



Banquet function from Corbis

Mungkin ada yang tak familiar dengan perkataan ni. Tapi yang jelas dan mudah, maksudnya berbuka puasa.

Bulan Ramadhan ni banyaklah majlis-majlis iftar diadakan di merata-rata tempat. Jadinya, penuhlah aktiviti mingguan kebanyakan orang yang berpuasa (dan mungkin juga tidak) dek kerana jemputan-jemputan yang diterima untuk ke majlis iftar.

Bila sebut majlis berbuka puasa je kita bayangkan buffet spread di hotel-hotel. Jaranglah kita teringat masjid/musalla yang sepelaung dari rumah kita tu (walaupun aku tak pernah berbuka di masjid umah aku). Kenapa? Sebab kita sudah lama dimomokkan dengan perkara-perkara largho sebegitu.

Tak perlulah bila kita sebut majlis berbuka puasa je, hotel yang terlintas, restoran hebat yang terbayang dsb. Yang penting, kita dapat berbuka puasa, itu sudah mencukupi. Bonus kalau dapat bersama ahli keluarga beramai-ramai dan kawan-kawan yang best.

Iftar. It's not necessarily has to be done in a fancy way.

This is not the first time i make plans.
This is not the first plan of mine to quit smoking.

This is not the first time i fail.
This is not the first failure of mine to stick to my plan.

Though i never plan to fail but it seems that i failed to plan wisely.

I failed in my plan to quit smoking, again (and again).

Maaf Zahir Batin.

This kinda remind me of the management at my working place. Tak percaya? tanya Najwa Aiman.

KAMI soundtrack
KAMI soundtrack cover

I'm currently hooked into this new local tv series. Interesting. No wonder because it is produced by Red Films. Teringat zaman mula-mula belajar jamming dulu, tengok gig, zaman "rm10 pun cukup nak keluar KL", and lots more... heheheh (ko jangan gelak Raddy).
The soundtrack is a must-get.

Check the site out at the sidebar/Advertisement.


During Ramadhan...

You'll usually get hungry than ever

The traffic is usually jammed than ever

Lots of people suddenly become bussinessman/woman

Murtabak is a must buy item for breaking fast

Parking lot in front of my in-law's house looks like a car stock yard

Lunch break is officially for sleeping, not napping

Buffet is suddenly the most-mentioned word

Patience is the real test for airheads

...I plan to quit my bad habit which is smoking (so far, so good).

Tuesday, September 11, 2007


While blog-hopping at office, I came across a weblog. The style looks/sounds familiar but I just couldnt make sure of it until this evening. It was a dear friend of mine, Syah's blog that I found. More interestingly, his flickr page. Stunning shots.


No offense but I'm strating to get annoyed by Malaysia showbiz scene. I dont know who or what, but these people is making the entertainment industry grow smaller. Am nobody involved in showbiz nor being nearby the people in the industry.

I'm telling you that it sickens me already to see the same old faces as actors in one film after another, one drama after another, being MCs at functions, being a talkshow/tv show host, signed-up as DJ, at the same time also singer etc, etc...

Is Malaysia that small until you cant find any fresh talents around? And the best part is, most of them suck at it (being an all-rounder).

I'm not saying that Malaysian celebrities are not multi-talented. They are... but not all of them for god sakes. What more could i say when they are not even good at their so called "core talent".

To showbiz people out there, please, do scout around. There are a lots of talents out there waiting to be discovered.

This makes me wonder if any of us ever seen Keanu Reeves having his own talkshow, or being a radio DJ, or being an MC at dinner functions or etc.

One thing not everybody can do

The scene

The people

The Firestarter

The chubby baby (Qistina)

The kids (Syamil and Ainul)


It's been a very long time since I last had a picnic. Failing to secure the International Tattoo tickets last weekend had led my brother-in-law (a.k.a The Firestarter) to plan an impromptu picnic. We went to Kemensah, a not-so-far place from our home.

There's nothing as good as getting soaked in a cold flowing river stream and having nasi lemak as brunch eventhough I had the same meal for breakfast (I'm in the effort of growing my belly, so what?).

Wish we could do this again some other time at some other place where there will be no dumb-ass people join us right next to us (I'm talking about 6" of distance!). Aku salin seluar pun nak tengok. Bongok.
