Let Me Tell You A Secret

I have never told this secret to any of my friends. The only other being that knows about this little secret is my mum. But after watching the short film entitled "House" on 15Malaysia website, I think it is due to tell the world.

That short video almost stopped my heart from beating.

That short video has revived an almost forgotten little secret of mine.

That short video brought back childhood memories.

To those who have not seen the video, let me just summarize it for you. It is about a little boy who was asked by a teacher to build a dream house. He built it, brought it to class and innocently showed it to his classmates.

They laughed at him.


Because it was an exact replica of the house he is living in now. It is old, small and cheap.

But why would he want to stay in the same house if it is old, small and cheap?

You don’t have to watch the video to find out. I can tell you why.

Ever since he was born, the house is where he lives. Everything he learns about life begins there. He learnt his mother’s love, the poverty that forces him to save his money, the rusty bicycle he uses to go to the grocery store, playing with dirt, the cold mattresses…

His childhood is in the house.

But although he knows where he lives, he fears that the house will one day be taken away from him.

And so will his childhood.

That is exactly how I feel about the house in my hometown. My childhood is in that house. And I fear that it will be taken away by greedy family members who are only after my grandmother’s only treasure.

It has always been a dream that if someday I become filthy rich, I would pay off those greedy family members and have the land under my name. So I can keep the land, the house, and my childhood. There - I told you my secret.

Out of the 15 short films, "House" is my personal best. I repeat, PERSONAL best. For some good humor, try "Slovak Sling", "Rojak" or "Halal".

Happy watching.

p.s. How about Laksa Sarawak for this coming Diwali celebration?

Happy Eid

By religion or race, this celebration is not for me to celebrate. By country, this celebration is for everyone to celebrate.

Happy Eid to all my Muslim friends and happy visiting to everyone. To those who are driving back to hometown, may you return safely.

Happy Birthday Malaysia

Dear Malaysia,

This is my 4th attempt to write you this letter. I find it so difficult to express my feelings to you. Of course I love you, but there has been many unpleasant events that has happened and it never fails to upset me.

What has become to the politics in Malaysia? The political scene has been so overwhelming these days that I do not have the time to follow the political scene in the US like I use to religiously 10 years ago.

Shouldn't the politicians we invest our time, MONEY and effort to help build a nation? No, I don't mean another twin tower! I mean, why not focus on economic growth? Our ever-changing educational system maybe? And what about national unity that has been embedded into one concept called the 1Malaysia - why is it all talk and no REAL output?

Aah, I'm sorry Malaysia, you are not to be blamed. It's the people's mindset that has to change. I just don't understand why were some people stepping on the cow's head several weeks ago. Isn't cow a God-made creature too? So they were angry with the state government, but don't you agree that stepping and spatting on the cow's head was a very uncivilized move? And all this while I thought we have reached adulthood! I guess it's true when they say your biological age may scream old, but your psychological age can scream otherwise! Yikes. I hope I'm older and wiser, not older and erm, childish??

I am upset Malaysia, but I don't know how to show it. I certainly won't show it through violence. If I opt for violence, it will only prove to others that Indian's are violent. Just as how they would label the Malay's as being lazy, and the Chinese as being stingy.

As a name, I am proud of you, Malaysia. But as a nation, I am far from being proud. I hope someday I can say that I am COMPLETELY proud of this nation. I somehow feel that some people who reads this letter would think, "If you're not proud of this country, you can pack your things and go back to India". But Malaysia, I won't blame them for having such a slow mental development, after all the -insert race here- is malas! *winks*

Ok Malaysia, I wish you the best of luck to make this country a better place to live! You're a birth that many Indonesians others are envious of. I love you, and you'll never walk alone!

Signing off,
Only a tiny citizen who apparently, has no say to Ketuanan Melayu - you are the best thing ever!

Mid-September Crisis

I went to watch the movie "Up" more than a week ago. But too bad for this movie, I wasn't in my best mood, so I guess I'll skip the review and just give a rating, ok? 4.o - it CANNOT beat Madagascar! HAHA.

So... anyway, who's having open house for the coming Raya and who's inviting me?? Heh.

* ANOTHER mental block. Someone, please give me some topics to blog about! This sucks. I'm bored.

Mana Korang Pergi Untuk Berbuka Puasa?

Kalau korang jenis yang suka berbuka di rumah, korang takyah lah nak mengade-ngade jawab "di rumah". Itu memang tunggu pelempang dari aku.

Korang tahu tak mana port bukak puasa yang best dan menepati bajet yang kurang bajet nih. Yer, aku bukan Islam - takyah puasa pun - shadap you, Cik Pin!

Tapi aku sering DITANYA.

Bila orang tanya soalan yang aku tiada jawapan, aku suka bertanya dengan Tok Google. Jadi bila aku ditanya soalan nih, aku pun tanyalah Tok Google! Ternyata, Tok Google memang handal dan ada banyak jawapan! Tapi pilihan jawapan beliau selalu berkait dengan buffet Ramadan di hotel-hotel mewah. Paling murah pun Hotel Cititel. Kalau tanya Tok Google pasal warung tepi jalan, dia cakap "Tak main la beb!". Ahh, siot je!

Jadi, boleh tak korang tolong aku, mana tempat yang best untuk berbuka puasa? Aku nak tempat berbuka yang ala kadar je. Kalau boleh di sekitar KL. Aku takde jawapan. Dan aku tiada masa untuk melepak dengan Tok Google sebab aku sibuk menyiapkan kerja di pejabat. Aku bukannya boleh balik rumah dan tidur di siang hari, betul tak? Bila aku tak beri jawapan kepada orang yang bertanya, aku dituduh tak membantu langsung SELAMA NIH. Walaupun sudah ku katakan yang aku sibuk. Biasalah tu, kalau kita bantu, tak nampak. Tak bantu, nampak saje! Jangan asyik mengata orang, diri sendiri tak tentu sempurna!

Eh, apa aku merepek nih? Aihh, jawab je lah soalan aku, ok?

* Nak aku plan? Boleh saje! Tapi bila aku TAK sibuk. Sudah ku katakan ku sibuk. Logik kau di mana? Oh, aku lupa, kau tak suka matematik..
* So... aku nak makan ape malam nih??
* Masa tulis post nih aku asyik terbayangkan wajah CikPin ketawa mengilai-ngilai. Ish, kenape ntah, tapi seram!

This is my dog. Say meow, doggy!

Am I terrible with cars or...

Are these two the SAME car or two DIFFERENT cars??

Apparently, if you check out the Gen-2 section in Proton UK website, you will find the pictures above in the same Gen-2 gallery. So tell me, is Gen-2 ELASTIC? Can we pull the rear to be longer, and push it back in to be shorter?

This is a sad case of a Malaysian car manufacturer. And they put this on the web? And to be viewed by the WHOLE WORLD??!!

I am embarrassed. No wait, I am DISGUSTED! But then again, PROTON doesn't really care, do they?

* Perhaps PROTON is pushing the edge of 1Malaysia to 1Gen-2??
* Why am I looking at cars?? Huhu.
* Do not have a Merdeka post because it did not feel like Merdeka. Anyone else feeling what I'm feeling?
