Is Love is what we think it is?

Posted: August 20, 2011 in Uncategorized


love is… the ability to have a lengthy conversation of how green a grass is

love is… about being able to smile alone

love is… to giggle at every unfunny joke your partner made

love is… never rational

love is… fun

love is… about the ability to empty your pocket allowance for a birthday gift

love is… about ignoring everything bad about your partner

love is… about being prepared to get emotionally hurt

love is… what makes time moves either too slow or too fast.

love is… about wanting to be together all the time

love is… about struggles

love is… sweet

love is… painful

love is… blinding

love is… what makes us human

love is… just one part of our life

love is… about making sacrifices

love is… no longer just between men and women… umm… chaittt!!!!

Yay! Raya is just around the corner

Yay! PLUS contractors has just now started some road work on the expressway.

Yay! Chicken price is gonna go up again.

Yay! many home owners will have their house broken when they leave it for Raya holidays.

Yay! many of us will max our credit again buying new things that we don’t even need yet.

Yay! many Malaysian will add to the roads accident statistic again.

Yay! many corporation will “sincerely” show off their contribution to some  less fortunate people again.

Yay! enough with all the negativity then… !^_^

Yay! … hmmm…

^_^!

here, me, now, offering a different point of view once in a while… hope that no one is upset with it. peace.

p/s :- is it too soon to wish selamat hari raya? ummm.. yeah, maybe it is… later then.

Why KL Gangster is such a hit?

Posted: August 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

Any of those out there remembers the HK hit gangster’s flick directed by Andrew Lau that hit us in the 90’s?

Titled Young and Dangerous starring Ekin Cheng as Chan Ho Nam and Jordan Chan as Chicken. the movie was so successful that there were another 4 sequels and 1 prequels made after it.

The way I see it, many among us like to be seen as bad, to them it is much cooler, bad ass people seems tougher than the rest of us.

even the people around my life changes after they’ve watched KL Gangster, somehow thanks to the datok producer/director, the movie boost the self confidence in a lot of people here. The guys who then walks while looking at the floor now has been able to look others in the face and guys who is confident enough to look at others’ faces then are now able to walk with their chest up high.

I have no issue if the movie just raised the audience’s self confidence but I have an issue when people start to gang up and shows gangsters attitude towards other.

in HK during the 90’s the movie Young and Dangerous had influenced many teenagers to join the organised crime groups (triads) and crime rate then flourished to an extend that you wished it has not happened.

Fact of thoughts: – from 30 students in a classroom, how many of them are naughty to an extent of trying out bad things. in my life experience, i’d say that the numbers are between 15% to 60% from that number depending whether it’s an urban school, sub-urban or kampung schools.

Now, thanks to that stupid bastard datok producer/director, regrettably, we may see that these numbers will start to rise and imagine of how many classrooms were there and how many schools were there.  the numbers would make any crime lord happy, a lot of prospects delinquents for them to choose to do their bad deeds.

I hope that this stupid datok wisen up and hopefully he wont be blinded by money and did another sequels to KL Gangster.

Psychological Properties: people, especially young people find ways to feel good about themselves by having peer support, be it positive or negative but these days, negative peer support are much more abundance compared to the positive ones. if by being bad ass makes them feel good about themselves, then bad ass they will be. some may wises up as they grow older but some may not.

parents nowadays seem to adopt the ‘its OK’ attitude just to make their life much easier but do not regret when its already too late, to a point that you as a parent no longer have any say in your child’s life. then only to regret that your kids path leads to imprisonment or death.

fuhh!! whoa… that’s some serious thoughts there…

a word to our local movie makers, please read my earlier post about Will They go to Hell? and i believe that one of the categories relates to movie makers producing socially bad influencing movies shown to younger audience.

p/s- aren’t we scared watching the news every night. that’s how bad Malaysian has becomes. in the 90’s its very rare to hear murder cases each day but nowadays, it seems that’s murders and other crimes are becoming more and more commonly heard of.

still cant think of how it has become as such. come on, wisen up… it stated with all the small socially bad influences exposed to the younger generation.

take a deep breath… hold it a while.. then let it go… we all know what we need to do.. but are we willing to do it?

what is news?

Posted: August 15, 2011 in Uncategorized

i believe that it is much easily defined back then, when Voltron was still famous and when Oshin was a big hit family treats.

a report of recent event“. – News definition by Merriam Webster online.

to me, today’s newspaper are looking more and more like an ads pamphlet.

Po: “yo bro! what’s the news?”

Mantis: “umm… Courts Mammoth is having a big raya sale!”

well… get what I mean. ads pamphlet, period.

a few years back, it was more of a tabloid, i have not seen a worthy newspaper in like… ages!

featuring stories of violence, crime, or scandal presented in a sensational manner” -Tabloid definition by Merriam Webster Online.

yay! keyword being ‘sensational’ . truth comes second, sensation is what sells newspapers.

Looking back, way back, when the Straits Settlement was about to become Malaya, newspapers started here with more propagandaic properties… (propagandaic? is there such a word? duhh…nontheless, hope u get what I mean).

”  ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one’s cause or to damage an opposing cause; also : a public action having such an effect ” – Propaganda definition, Merriam Webster online.

Thus, with such history, no wonder it’s how Berita Hairan and Utusaen is this days. ( don’t sue me please, I dont have a lot of money !^_^ ). you buy it, you flip a few pages and you felt like throwing it into a garbage bin… luckily, there are still some ads in there that’s worth flipping through…. *sigh*

Well… everybody needs to make living right? as long as it sells, who gives a S right? they gotta do something anyway, in order to stay competitive in light of the online media emergence. its a survival tactic, they’ve survive radio, they’ve endured TV and now they have to outlast the internet. its a tough world out there.

“you are what you read” ever hear this expression before? yeah… I know you did.

POINT: you heard it, not read it.

that’s how tough the newspaper business is these days. not many people read anymore.

Well, as such, news are not simply news these days, open up our mind, open up our hearts… don’t just simply believe what u read, heard or watched, wise up and think thoroughly.

all I can say is… good luck with it.   !^_^  it’s not gonna be easy…

p/s:- oops! used too much ‘these days’ in this post i guess… la lala lala…

“Selamat Berpuasa everyone”
