i could but i dont wanna

i could be all poetic and ambiguous in telling you what i feel.
i could use big words and metaphors in every sentence.

but i choose not to.
because i want to be obvious.
and i want the world to know how smitten i am.

more importantly,
i want YOU to know, that,
"My atoms and chemicals could've been made anywhere in the universe, but they were made here, near you. Near yours."

Random #1 : My Favourite Song

It took me so long to start the 30 days project,
not because i was suddenly swamped with ideas,
but the title for the first day (which is my favourite song) proves to be a huge setback.

For those of you who has hung out with me before,
you would know just how fickle i am.
I am that girl who goes 'id like one McChicken please.'
*5 seconds later*
'eh kejap kejap kejap. change that to Double Cheeseburger lah!'
*yet another 5 seconds*
'eh wait wait. can u cancel the Double Cheeseburger and make it a Big Mac instead?'

If you're the unfortunate person who's queuing behind me, or worse still the person who's taking my orders, dont think your death stares escaped my notice. I perasan okay, saja je buat muka bajet innocent macam tak buat salah.

Yes, i am fickle.
And i felt pressured nak kena pick just one song to list as my favourite so i did what i do best.
I stalled.

To be honest, i dont have any preference to the songs i listen to.
Semua pun ikut mood.

Like, say, if i'm driving long-distance, i'd listen to Muse,Ratatat, Phoenix, Foals, Feist or Nadasurf.
If i'm angry, I'd listen to System of a Down or The Mars Volta.
If i'm in a breakup mode, i'd listen to Dygta, Coldplay, Damien Rice, Broken Social Scene or songs with heartbreaking lyrics.
If i'm chilling, i'd opt for Beatles, Vampire Weekend, Metric, The New Pornographers, Jack Johnson, Lily Allen or Regina Spektor.

Sometimes i listen to The Donnas and The Pierces when i'm in a girl-power mode. Or Weezer, Phantom Planet, OK Go, Garbage when i want to reminisce on my Foundation days. Or Lapsap, Klaxons or Agrikulture when i want to goyang goyang.

How the hell am i supposed to break it down to one song?

Hehh. Fine just so tak lari tajuk. My favourite song right at this moment is Woo-Hoo by the 5678s. That's the same song as the famous whistling in Kill Bill Vol. 1 btw.


Ok dah la dah penat type lah. Bye bye.

hai perempuan halimunan!

hai lah perempuan,
dengan sepenuh perasaan aku attempt untuk cuba jadi memahami
dan dengan nada suara paling lembut yang aku bisa muster,
aku mahu tanya kamu ini,

mengapa yang tak pasti juga yang kamu mahu?
adakah kamu ditipu oleh ayat cinta manis bersalut gula,
atau dipaksa keadaan yang sentiasa tak menyebelahi kamu,
atau kamu merely in denial?

apa kamu tak sedar yang kamu bukan sekadar inflict pain atas diri sendiri?
tempias tempias luka sampai ke hati aku, hai perempuan.
sakit perit derita akan termaktub ke jiwa jiwa lain juga, hai perempuan.

susah sangat ke,
kalau kali ini,
aku minta jasa baik kamu,
beri aku peluang untuk betul betul bahagia?

sebab sumpah aku penat jalan atas duri yang sama!

Revelation #77

being understanding sure is noble, but sometimes it drains the energy out of you.
especially when there are about a million things out there that escapes your comprehension and lacks stability.

i lack stability.
that says a lot about my mental sturdiness, kan?
keeping that fact in mind, what chance do i have at being understanding?

maybe it's not stability that i lack, maybe it's faith.
maybe it's sanity.
fuck if i know.

p/s : will you people stop spamming my chatbox with cliched bloghopping invitations? if you really do have to do it, then at least make an effort to be original. pfft.

P. Ramlee bears quite a huge resemblance to Charlie Chaplin in this, dontcha think?

Oh, i miss those days when i used to set up my sleepover kit in my parent's bedroom and cuddle under the covers eating Koko Krunch while watching Pendekar Bujang Lapuk (takpun tengok Chaplin's Modern Time).

5 is the best age, if you ask me.

I mean, seriously, i was so easily entertained and awed back then.
Pfft. Who needs Astro? Watching huge greasy guys in spandex wrestle each other pun boleh terbeliak mata aku tengok sampai pukul 1-2 pagi.
Spongebob? Naaah, back then pagi tengok Peter Pan, petang sikit will be time for Beauty & The Beast, then malam-ish i'll watch Cinderella. I love Disney's cartoon. Evergreen siot. 
Repeat la satu cartoon sampai 15 kali sehari pun takpe, it's all good. 

Weh. Rindu nya.

Paul The Octopus, the football pundit.

My name is Paul.
As you can see, i am an octopus!

In the other world, before i was hatched, I made an acquaintance with a delightful (albeit peculiar) man called Nostradamus and this gentleman taught me (above all things) how to predict the result of football games.

I was bred in Germnay, and thus could only predict games played by the Germans (though i actually hatched from my egg in England).
Back in 2008, for EURO 08, i only got one prophecy wrong (this is turning to be quite a badly presented resume ey? hehe).

This year, they once again put my prediction skill to test for the FIFA World Cup. I was there stuck in my aquarium (which, to be honest, makes me feel a tad bit claustrophobic) and they will put my food in two containers that are marked with the German flag as well as the flag of the opposing team.

You know, earlier on, when i predicted the win of Germany over Argentina, plenty of Argentinian fans threatened to eat me (thank god they never actually did!)

It was also pretty chaotic the other day when i indicated that Serbia will win over our nation. Some chose not to believe me, but at the end of the game, they had to silently succumb to the fact that they were wrong, and i was, once again, right.

Last night, i made my final prediction for this year's World Cup. To be honest, i just thought that the food in the Spain container looked more enticing.

I have no idea if we lost due to the fact that Spain's defense was spot on, or if i have unintentionally brought the morale of my countrymen down by predicting their loss. 

But hey! i didnt want to repeat my last mistake where i rooted for Germany but they were beaten by Spain, which made me look kinda stupid (though, as an octopus, you would think it's hard to appear any more stupid that i already do).

I saw last night's game so that i will be able to foresee the chances of me receiving more death threats. Looks like it's coming fast and steady now. I shall go and hide in the corner of my tank now before somebody makes a 'sambal sotong' out of me. 

Til the next prediction! (and you guys who are rooting for Netherlands and Spain can breathe in relief now as I wont be able to predict the outcome of THAT game!) 


p/s : i do have a hunch that Holland will win though! ;)

Bookworm Bitch is now Bookenstein!

Due to the inappropriateness of the name and the unfortunate sexual innuendo (as well as the fact that my mom now reads my blog) i have decided to change the url of my book blog. 

It is now officially christened

Hear! Hear!
