Guys, would I be happier if I had you as my partner?

Ladies, would I be happier if I had your partners as my partner?

I like 'special' people. The retards, the genuinely crazy people, the senile.
Many people think they are useless.
But I believe their existance has a purpose in our lives.
They remind me to be grateful for being me.
Watching them is a humbling experience. You just feel like you want to make the most out of now before you lose the abilities and/or memories.
They remind you that some things are more important than worrying over work, money, silly fights with your neighbours.

Noone is ever useless. Not even if you think you are a failure.
"Perhaps, the only reason of my living, is as a reminder to other people" (I can't remember the source of this quote)

That's why I am against abortion. I am also against euthanasia. Who are we to decide who is worth living or not? Who are we to decide who would be a burden to the society?

I don't pity these people or the people who are taking care of them.
They are so special, sometimes, I want to be like them. So care-free, innocent and sincere.

Orang yang dah hilang akal, bila mati, confirm masuk syurga.
Isn't that everybody's ideal ultimate goal?

If we swap lives today, will I be happy like you?

I want the things that you have that I don't have.


Bahasa jiwa bangsa

One fine morning...

Boy: Apa maksud read-dress?
Me: Read-dress? Macam mana spelling?
Boy: R-E-A-D-D-R-E-S-S
Me: (Mind goes wandering off after the letter 'A') Entah. I tak tahu maksudnya.
Boy: Maksudnya, tukar alamat.
Me: (Silent. Because of shock)

I took a deep breath and said, "That's RE-ADDRESS."

Boy: (Gelak-gelak malu) Haha! I salah baca!
Me: (Laughs along to minimise his humiliation)
Boy: You jangan bagitahu kawan you tau, malu I!
Me: You jangan buat I malu depan kawan I.

I'm a bit concerned with my boyfriend's command in the English language.

A little girl was fetched from the school by her grandparent. She was obviously upset, she cried all the way home.

"Kenapa nangis? Kena buli ke? Selalu main kejar-kejar. Hari ni jatuh ke? Ada orang pukul ke?"

That's how bad the crying was. Sampai orang ingat dia kena pukul.
She refused to tell and continued to sob.

Finally, she calmed down. She got a B for her Bahasa Melayu end-of-year exam. All of her friends scored As for the paper.

She's only 9. She isn't supposed to feel sad over her silly exam result!
The first time I felt competitive in my studies was when I was in standard 6!

Putting myself in her shoes, everyone expects her to do well in BM because she was one of the few selected Malay students in her class. The others must have teased her, or she simply felt bad because she was beaten by those who do not even speak Malay at home. She knows the only paper that keeps pulling her marks down is her BM paper. It was the end-of-year exam. It's stressful for her.

My niece has always had problems with his BM. We don't know how else to help her.

Boy: I dah tak boleh tengok YouTube lagi or several other websites.
Me: Why?
Boy: Dah kena block.
Me: Why?
Boy: Ada orang datang office, masuk website porn. I tak mahu orang tengok porn dalam computer I. Nanti office I tak berkat.

Okay. Semoga segala urusanmu diberkati.

Siri bercakap dengan diri sendiri

Dalam dunia blog ni ada macam-macam.
Tengok orang shopping barang mahal-mahal, alamak, terasa macam seronok pula. Terus fikir, "Wah, kayanya mereka ni...Bilalah saya nak jadi kaya, boleh beli bla bla bla."
Tengok orang melancong, pergi sana-sini, naik first class pula tu!
Kereta besar, rumah cantik, si penulis pun cantik rupawan...

Kehidupan yang ala-ala sempurna.

Bukan seorang dua, ramai pula tu!
Baguslah, dikurniakan rezeki yang murah. Orang Malaysia ni ternyata ramai juga yang kaya-kaya rupanya...

Saya? Suami kaya pun tak ada! Sampai kadangkala, saya pula sedih meratapi nasib, "Kenapalah saya ni tak kaya-kaya..."

Tapi sebenarnya, hari ini saya sudah terlupa.
Setiap orang mempunyai target dalam kehidupan masing-masing.
Dahulu, sewaktu saya dalam lingkungan awal 20-an, saya telah membuat keputusan tentang cita-cita saya.
Saya memang berharapkan supaya saya tidak terlalu kaya dan tidak terlalu miskin.
Saya hanya mahu membantu orang yang dalam kesusahan. Itu memang impian saya. Target saya bukan untuk menjadi kaya raya. (Jika saya target untuk menjadi kaya, tentunya saya tidak akan memilih bidang yang saya ceburi sekarang ini sebagai punca pendapatan!)
Saya sudah pun berfikir secara matang dan mendalam kenapa saya tidak mahu menjadi seorang 'millionaire'. (Mesti fikir apa yang kamu mahu dalam kehidupan supaya tak tersilap doa.)
Kenapa saya tidak mahu jadi kaya raya? Saya seorang sahaja yang tahu, tak perlulah saya tulis di sini buat masa sekarang.

Memang agak 'tempting' jugalah kalau dikelilingi dengan orang-orang senang.
Ada seorang rakan saya pernah bercakap, "Don't blame me for being materialistic. Look at our friends...They are all rich. It's not my fault if my friends are wealthy, it's not like I only choose rich people to be my friends, dah memang kawan I kaya, nak buat macam mana kan! So, suami I pun mestilah kaya juga!"
Yup, totally understandable.

Sebenarnya, bagi saya, saya dah cukup kaya, tapi apabila membandingkan diri dan tengok orang lain, eh, macam tak cukup pula. Biasalah, manusia...
Namun, saya sedaya upaya hendak berpegang kepada prinsip hidup saya.

Mereka semua buat saya terpengaruh. Saya mesti tepis semua anasir ini supaya saya tidak tersasar dari cita-cita saya yang sebenar! Itu jalan yang saya pilih.

Sampai kadang-kadang, saya perlukan a 'constant reminder', "Saya punya 'goal' dalam kehidupan bukan menjadi kaya. Ingat tu, Ectopy!" saya jerit dalam hati.

Saya selesa dengan diri saya dan barang-barang yang saya ada sekarang walaupun tidak seberapa.
Hakikatnya, jika saya menjadi kaya raya sekalipun, saya tetap tak sampai hati nak berbelanja ribu-ribu, haha!
Mungkin, pada pendapat saya, saya lihat orang berada ni hidupnya senang dan gembira, jadi, tak hairanlah jika saya pun mempunyai keinginan sedemikian sekali-sekala.
Sedangkan saya tahu bahawa diri saya sendiri tidak akan beroleh kepuasan dengan cara itu. Itu kepuasan yang dicapai untuk orang lain, bukan untuk saya.
Kepuasan saya dalam bentuk yang lain. Saya cuma mahu membantu orang, saya tahu saya akan puas jika saya membantu orang.

Bagaimana saya tahu? Sebab saya pernah membeli barang yang mahal. Tetapi, akhirnya, saya hanya teruja sekejap sahaja. Saya langsung tak pandai nak menghargai barang itu.
Memang sah, pembelian itu terhasil dari 'peer pressure' atau nafsu semata-mata.

Oleh itu, hari ini, sekali lagi, saya ingin mengingatkan diri saya sendiri,
"Saya punya 'goal' dalam kehidupan bukan menjadi kaya. Ingat tu, Ectopy!" saya jerit dalam hati.

shave it

A friend's sister was heavily pregnant when she asked for a huge a favour from my friend.
"I am gonna give birth to my baby soon," she said.
"So, I am going to prepare for that moment," she continued to say.
"The doctors and the midwives are going to see, you know, down there," then, she paused.

"Could you help me shave my pubic hair?"

"Hell, no!" my friend screamed.
Her sister pleaded, "Come on! I would do it myself if I could, but I can't, can I?" and she put her hand on her huge belly.
My friend still refused, "Your husband should do it for you, not me! I am not going to look at your vagina!"
"It's embarassing lah! You do it, you are my sister, there's nothing to be ashamed of."

What is this! Dengan your own spouse pun nak malu ke? He never stripped you down, meh?

I don't know what her sister said, but she did manage to make my friend shave her pubic hair in the end.

i hope this wont create a violent controversy...

Hello, people, it's been a while, eh?
I want to write on several subjects, but everytime I try to compose a post, I could not finish it.

But today is different.

Okay, I am gonna write something short (because I am busy) and some of you might be offended by this. Before I proceed, I just want to apologize in advance if I ter'offend' you in any way.

It's about hijab/ tudung. This is just an opinion, betul atau tidak, tak tahulah.

When I was bloghopping just now, I read a sentence which, how shall I say put this, which I don't quite agree with.

The sentence goes like this: Pakai tudung tak semestinya tak boleh berfesyen tau!

I thought a real Muslim woman shouldn't care about style and fashion as long as the attire she puts on covers her aurat.
That's the reason why a Muslim woman don the tudung in the first place, right? To avoid attention.
So, why must you be fashionable and attract attention when one of main reasons of a hijab is to humble your appearance?
From my knowledge, you are not even supposed to wear bright colours, raise your voice unnecessarily, wear excessive blings blings, or/and wear noisy footwears, all in the name to persevere a Muslim woman's modesty.

So, how can a tudung and fashion intersect? Unless you are wearing your tudung for the wrong purpose or without adequate knowledge.
Fashion is duniawi, fashion is about making a statement, fashion is about to be noticed: Oh, wow, she is so fashionable!, Oh, look how stylish she is!, Oh, look at that girl with that cute top!.

I really don't mind if a Muslim woman wear a tudung and be fashionable at the same time, believe me, I have many friends in tudung and they all look amazing. I know that they know their attires are not perfect.
Just the way they know that I know exposing my hair to non-Muhrim is haram.
We have the knowledge, but we don't execute them.

Do you get my drift?

I am not condemning anybody who wears tudung and fashionable clothes together, as long as I know they wear them because they consciously decide to and they are fully aware the way they dress are not THE way, just half or maybe 3/4 of THE way.
They will get 'there' in time, stepwise. That, I understand. Drastic changes are usually 'Easy come, easy go'.
But, these people don't tell other people, Hey, look, I wear my tudung as my religion requires me to do so, follow me, I am the perfect example! when in fact, you are not.

What disturbs me is, the statement 'Pakai tudung tak semestinya tak boleh berfesyen tau' simply shows that the writer doesn't grasp firmly on the concept of a hijab.
It's juvenile to wear hijab without the most basic fundemental knowledge of the purpose of a hijab.
Nevertheless, I acknowledge and praise everyone who don the tudung.

Like I say, I am not trying to condemn anybody, this is just a piece of my mind. Good for everybody who wears the hijab (mengikut sunnah or not, I know, you are at least trying), you people are all better than me. :) I am so behind...Tak tahu bila nak catch up with you guys...

Kalau nak beramal, mesti berilmu.
Kalau dah berilmu, tapi tak mahu beramal...
