'cos today i found my friends
they're in my head
i'm so ugly
but that's ok
'cos so are you
(ok, let's jump the lyrics)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
(now, let's do the chorus)
I like you - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack
thanks for buzzing allya! you made my day! best nyer, they are all in town! :op
a society which is clamoring for choice, which is filled with many articulate groups, each urging its own brand of salvation, its own variety of economic philosophy, will give each new generation no peace until all have chosen or gone under, unable to bear the conditions of choice.

i arrived in hartamas 10 minutes early, i went for a quickie DVD bajakan. i was all excited, i had 10 DVDs in hand + so me gerak to bayar (dah lama tak layan TV, gimme a break). donch ask which titles, they were so not mainstream + you'll go what??? i also went what??? at some of them. only at the counter, did i realise i left my purse in the office. oops! there goes my movie marathon. i think mebbe that was why later the tauke was not so generous with skeez, he probably remembered me from earlier, as suparrrDzu put it, teasing him. :op
oh! thanks pizan for thumbsucker; i like! definitely not suitable for a 1 1/2 year old, yewww psycho! demmit yewww for pulling my leg! but maybe the flick is best for parents who's dying to make their kid conform; thumbsucking for pacification tak macho.
and thanks cik pms for advancing cash for the two DVDs. you're the bomb!!! please donch interest me so high on the loan...
them bloggers, they've branded me as the quiet one + so i joined stolencar (who's doing more observing than talking) + played the role; all smiles, intensely observing, sometimes pondering. ;o)
last nite we saw the biggest crowd. we've got a handfull of clown jesters wihout their hats making us go rolling in laughing fits. the crew was pretty loud. but as agus said, it's impossible to get cozy with every single person; biggie crowd. i'm not sombong yo! just shy. :op
ena (auntie roseni's niece) + syamly were there as well. the last time i saw them was at fatboy slim's some years ago. ena remembers my sis + i. syamly hampeh! tetiba he went oh! ni laa anak che nor. yeah! my mom the glam one, us invisible. but i like their watches, real cool!!! i especially like ena's *wegra drool*
oh! i got to skodeng suparrrdzu's notebook; was impressed with her naive doodling but her etymological prowess tickled both cik pms + meself. *peace dzu! we love yeww!!!* it was only one mistake but hahaha all the same. the nerdy in her tickled cik pms alone, i kept my mouth zipped 'cos sometimes i do the same but i'm not a nerd or am i? what am i referring to??? for me to know, titik! yeww peeps donch go busy body.
it was my first time meeting ti.e.na, cosmic girl + red raven. 'twas good meeting you peeps. *wegra waves at ti.e.na, cosmic girl + red raven* enche zuhri was being a true shutterbug the whole nite.
apparently, there were aussie lomographers at the other end of the table being entertained by jiji and pizan.
oh! the brain very the scattered yesterday. after the meet, i was already in subang when i realised i had to drop auntie salma's files at auntie akmar's in jalan dungun. half way, auntie salma rang worried something had happened to me on the road. oops! i had to do a 19 minutes drive, lucky there were no police as i was driving like a mad woman without my licence. :op [note: have a checklist in the car]
p.s. 'tis most unlikely but if syamly was to somehow sesat here he would have gone flabbergasted at the sight of texts + would've just scrolled down. he would've gained nothing + that would be very the waste of time + energy mouse clicking, so wave at syamly, peeps!
p.s.s. the star clown jester awards go to cik pms + cik pijoh. the most memorable moment was when the biggest spit i've ever seen suddenly jumped out from this particular chicka's mouth whilst cik pijah was performing her stand up comedy.
p.s.s.s. bertique, you were sorely missed ...

this chicka is very the kepochi also, her part-time job reads cupid.
one day, her mom’s friend’s daughter came home for good + applied to work with them. she went all excited because she knew this girl from when they were toddlers. she helped the girl settle down, let the girl borrow some of her bhajus mahal from when she was a size 6. after 2 weeks, the girl complained to the chicka that she didn’t have friends in kl because she’s been abroad for ages. the chicka said ok, you can meet my friends. so the chicka introduced this girl to her close friends. the girl was impressed with the chicka’s friends.
the girl was interested with chicka’s guy friend i because the guy drives a good car. chicka said no, he’s in a relationship. ...and went on and on and on discouraging.
after a few weeks of hanging out, chicka the miss cupid + another friend noticed the girl and guy friend ii flirting. (guy friend ii has been single ever since his first love dumped him for being a muslim) they both were excited and initiated match making project piiiraaahhhh. to cut the story short, project piiiraaahhhh was a success.
short of a week after the success, the chicka walked into the girl making out with a guy chicka didn’t know. she was infuriated and walked out without saying anything. she felt the urge to tell guy friend ii but suppressed it, not knowing how to do it.
two weeks later, she pulled the courage to tell guy friend ii about what she saw. guy friend ii went berserk; he said the girl warned him that chicka was jealous about their relationship + is treating her like shit in the office + will try to feed him with lies about her. chicka realised the girl is much smarter than her + she’d loose the crew, one day.
true enough, chicka had to walk out of her friends she loved dearly fearing things would turn much worse than it already is. the girl was then engaged to guy friend ii.
that was two years ago.
one morning, chicka had to pick her mom’s friend from the airport. on the way back to kl, the auntie told chicka that the girl had a wedding reception in london recently. chicka was happy that guy friend ii has found his love and is married. chicka asked the auntie if she had pictures of the wedding + to her surprise the auntie said yes + showed her the pictures off her digital camera.
chicka was saddened to see the pictures, the girl married guy friend i, apparently the girl dumped guy friend ii on their wedding night. the crew has since broken up; they no longer hang out together.
kesah dongeng; hanya rekaan dan tiada kena mengena dengan yang hidup atau mati.
meet my ayah chik (nope, that's not his car). he's my mom's youngest brother.
yup! he's goofy like that + mama oso like that sometimes + bapak oso like that sometimes, ikoot mood.
so donch get angry with me if i donch know how to pose in front of the camera 'cos i grew up surrounded by adults like them.

him maintaining a single track mind, that is all i can prescribe.
i tried to feed him with information but he failed to digest them. i tried to share my experiences but he failed to grasp them. i tried to coax him to an intellectual intercourse but he failed to respond. he kept on parroting the same thing over and over and over again, unable to reflect.
why? why? why? definitely not idiocy; i'm sure his mental capacity surpasses mine, him belonging to a superior race. definitely not crassness; i'm sure he's more cultured + refined than i, him belonging to a superior race. then, it has to be pain + anger motivated. the pain must be too great for him to build that massive wall with thorny creepers. so what was it, sayang? why so much hate + anger welled up?
*wegra hugs racist chinese spammer*
the crassness of this observation shocked everyone into silence, including wegra herself. race related? or it's just wegra not being refined?
you know what's ironic? he calls the malays 'nazis' and him the victim of our 'atrocity', yet he achoed darwinism-inspired eugenics, which justified and encouraged the nazi views on both race and war. tsk! 'superior race'?
such confused soul...

they used to bug me, them little, little things.
it used to bug me when peeps try to initiate small talks at a play; like d’uh someone’s on stage performing. it used to bug me when peeps interject when another is giving a presentation. it used to bug me when peeps don’t acknowledge let alone thank the waiter/waitress who’s just served them. let’s not go on to driving etiquette, which, once upon a time, can make me go botak.
but sekarang my attitude suka hati korangs lah, asal tak step on my toes i leave you as you like it but don’t look at me weird when i thank the tollgate teller.
what went wrong really? when did them politeness start eroding from our society?
i mean, i look at my late grandparents, they were so very courteous, i went so very humbled watching them.
ok, fine. ‘tis part of the process; social development amidst economic development. but we’ve got references from other developed society. why not use them to ensure that we don’t repeat their history? keeping the yin and the yang balanced.
ok, fine. we’ve short circuited many of the problems developed nations had gone through.
so now, what’s the point of this post? saja premenstrual syndrome. (i like being perempuan, blame everything on premenstrual syndrome, everyone go quiet. don’t go jeles-ing guys) :op

ben & jerry's! ben & jerry's! ben & jerry's! ben & jerry's! ben & jerry's!
oh! or maybe richard ashcroft's latest album??? *sigh*
when he's a good boy, bunda would call him akasyah. when he notty gell, bunda would go faidul iman, enough to make him stop. i oso afraid when i hear faidul iman, 'cos it'll always mean bunda is upset, although akceli bunda is very soft spoken one.
i haven't seen akasyah for a long long time. but yesterday bunda + me wanted to visit auntie azwini in bangsar, me made a pit stop at theirs. akasyah was excited to see me and gave that how-are-you-doin'? glance.
akasyah showed me his favourite "Zoo Animal" DVD. when the owl goes on screen, he shouted "AYAH!!!". *wegra pelik* and so we had another dosage of "Zoo Animal" since i had to make sure what i heard. when the owl goes on screen, again he went "AYAH!!!".
anyways, when we were at azwini's akasyah went notty a few notches up. he was sitting on my lap when bunda softly went faidul iman.
*wegra tersirap chicken*
i think akasyah was malu bekos bunda scolded him in front of strangers and so he went for me hair. me oso malu bekos akasyah went for me hair, me went pulling his little hair complete with me drama queen geram expression. right then, ayah akasyah had to turn to look. ooops!
moral of the story: next time cubit discreetly with a smile on your face
p.s. i've updated my blog. to the rest, update please!

the only reason i bought the top for myself pun sebab the sales assistant was so ikhlas bersungguh2 when serving me. dengan serba salah, i korek my purse to pay for the top. that's my weakness yo. if all malaysian sales assistant are turning more like their uk counterpart, i'll be broke pretty soon.
that's the green top, mama took the picture. she asked me what is it for and i replied, for my blog ma. she asked me to take a blurred picture of her and post it on the blog so that peeps won't recognise her. so, this is my blurred mama. if you see her on the streets, pretend not to know her.
oh ya! my uncle has found his way to this blog; wave at him y'all. my brother has found his way to this blog as well; wave at him y'all. even my cousin has found his way here. the name ahmad imran, 27+, single, i presumed an entrepreneur as well, lse graduate; wave if you're interested.
the pictures above were taken at a petrol kiosk and do you wanna see the damage i suffered today from the price hike???
precisely. don't drink and drive yo.
p.s. why at this age if i promote my friends saying they are good peeps, smart, pretty, etc etc ... the question that would follow suit, "if she's that great, how come she's single?" lucky i could answer she just got out of a failed relationship. me, i'm in a limbo and this weekend would be my first year limbo anniversary. should i celebrate?!

don’t be fooled by her appearance, she may seem sober and very the warisan wanita terakhir. well, she IS very the lembut, actually, despite the tough exterior she tries to project. she’s the coolest chic i know. she’s a music genius. she’s dead creative and intelligent, hilarious as well, very the athletic lagi. very the good friend oso, the one you can trust.
me being me, i had to go missing laa kan slowly2, exploring the world on my own. when i came back after that long void, she’s very the open arms. thanks very much, weed. really appreciate it.
widie was my guitar chee cher. she’s my play the keyboard by listening chee cher, back when i was so dependent on music sheets. but of course, me nuthead tak cukup berguru. petang2 after prep, she’ll drag me to join her jam songs from metallica’s black album on chaklempong (donch remember which laa babe). the music room was our pit stop back then, tak pun the little piano room under ms vicky’s flat. her sketches zaman kanak2 dulu were awesome (i still have some of our sketches, yesh! the mulut tikus sketch. i now remember my doc mart prints around the piece of paper and suddenly a katak squashed under one of the shoe print. i’m the doc mart distributor, remember. hehe!). oh! she’s very the mensa material. (i can't help it, i'm a marketeer OK!)
anyways, i had tea with her and ina yati on sunday.
seperti zaman kanak2 dulu, she still records her jamming session albeit now through her mobile phone. dulu2 pakai keset je, bang.
that’s ina yati listening to the recording attentively. weed was playing jac victor’s gemilang and mariah carey’s my all (wasn’t it?) on the piano, backing a unitar student singer. the unitar girl could really sing mate! my goose went over the bump.
and i’m still in denial. weed, you sure you’ve got a baby girl oredi, babe????
