Save The Best For Last

First of all, Selamat Menjalankan Ibadah Puasa. I hope it is not too late for me to wish. Hrmmm, what a roller-coaster ride it has been for me for all this while. I'm right now enjoying my first Ramadhan here after spending nearly 2 years 'down under'. The things that I've gained or do or planning to do so far:

- Wiser (hope so)
- Extra fat (yeah, I'm starting to gain weight lately - Even fasting did not do any good)
- Wasting money entering a fitness club but rarely attending it.
- Saving money for the new PS3 Slim (old habit die hard I presume)
- Before that, I need a new 42' LCD with full HD (Gores & menang aka credit card)
- Finished repairing my car after a mishap (definitely put a hole inside my pocket)
- Finished servicing my beloved bike (Honestly speaking, I'm proud to do it myself..hehe)
- Traveling, the thing that I loved most > November, 2009: Taipeh, Taiwan
Januari, 2010: Bali, Indonesia
July, 2010: Melbourne, Australia (It's going to be a
winter holiday)

Sorry Bud, forgot to snap pictures after the mishap. All that I can say is that it happen soon after this picture was taken (Rainy day + speeding = bad thing happening)

Somewhere in Cameron Highlands.

My bike. I'm halfway through.

Changing the radiator is one great feat. Finally managed to do it and now she's in a great working condition.

I think that's it for now. By the way, someone did mentioned before that I recently changed to someone with a lot of negative vibes. Sorry for that, a lot of things happen lately and as for me, I'm just a normal person who sometimes did use this blog as a place to vent out my anger, frustration, joy or any other feeling.
Last but not least, thanks for reading this.



P/s Waiting, waiting and waiting

Thursday, August 6, 2009


Wow, never thought that I'm going to write in here again after a long time of absence. A lot of stuffs to write but unfortunately so little time allocated. Sometimes, I really wish that I could turn back time and then just stayed in Melbourne. Wishing for some miracle to happen...

Shit happen again

I will not fall again this time around

P/s Art of War

It's Seems Like Forever

Hectic life, unforgiving environment, untrustworthy peoples, personal problems and the list will only keep on expending. I think that is what I've endured for the past few months. What more??? Yaaaa, I just recovered from an accident involving... myself. Why??? I just underestimate my car performance and handling. Hrmmm, I bet the worst is yet to come.

Dealing with the IGBTs really give me the headache.

Troublesome. No specific method to install it.

P/s There goes my hard earned money.

Second Opinion

Just got a second opinion from Kak Mi and I could not agree more with her regarding the 'issue'. Sometimes, it's better to consult the 'ladies' instead of the men with it comes to problems relating relationship. So, I guess I should take the other side of the road and do not interfere with it. "Must try to avoid any unnecessary 'contact'" said Kak Mi with a stern look from her face. Haha, yup Kak Mi, will do.

Got the answer for my questions

P/s Don't want to be the 'third party'.

This Is It

Just follow the flow

Wednesday morning.
Still I haven't reply 'her' mail yet. Maybe tonight I will do that and later on set the time for me to meet her. I think, it is better for me to talk about it face to face rather than talking via phone. Need to make it as simple as possible and later on, will make it easier for me to move on regardless of the outcome.

P/s Too many coincidence happen lately especially when it involves 'her'.

My Mom's Birthday


Happy Birthday to you. Love you always, mom.
I know that you're not reading this but as a reminder to me, to always remember this date.
Hoho, guys are known to be forgetful especially on dates.

P/s Celebrating it at David. Need to be there by 8.00 pm. So, got to rush.

Out of The Blue

Got an e-mail from someone really, really unexpected this morning. It's from 'her'. Been 8 years since we last meet and then, all of a sudden a mail. I've just had a conversation regarding 'her' with Jaafar two days ago on how I missed her and how thing ended plus me moving on with my life and now this...

All that I knows, she's already engaged to someone that I didn't know (that's a relief).
All that I need to do is to confront her again. I still remember what Leo used to say to me...

If you say it to her you have 99% rate of failure but at least 1% rate of success BUT
if you didn't say anything to her, then you're for sure going to fail 100%.
Regardless of what you did, at least you should try and you will not lose anything (because you already lose her, hahaha).

Last night, I watched the final episode of that Japanese drama again, and it really hit me hard every time I watched it...

Ask, and you shall find the answer.
Seek, and you will find the truth.
Knock, and the door shall be open to you.

Which side of the road should I take?

P/s Kenzo x Rei.


first month of my job....
i forgot everything...all my favourite...
the raindrop seems to be nothing special, i forgot how the cloud look like today, how funny it was-the comics, anime and the movies, never again at night to watch the moon and the stars. i do think somehow, i totally forgot how fun life could be...have you?
ps: when driving, open the window, feel the wind-it was fun.

To Anon,
Yup, it happen to me too. Nowadays, my life is just ain't like the way it used to be. No more waking up late in the morning. No more strolling or wandering around aimlessly in a foreign place while snapping pictures. No more free time to do what I loved most to do (including blogging). No more tossing endless pile of pancakes. No more bumping with strange peoples with my strange bike. And the list will goes on and on and on.
But apart from that, we should know that our life should start somewhere, right? Eventhough that we almost 'lost' all of the fun stuff when we were students, all least we still have fond memories of it, right? Something that we can treasure for years to come.
Something that will make us a better person in the future (hopefully)...


P/s I need to kick start my life somehow.

Backtracking - My 'Last' Night In Melbourne

Celebrating the New Year Eve plus spending my 'last' night here in Melbourne since I'm heading 'home' the following day. This is actually my second time enjoying the new year celebration in here.

Fireworks galore. Still the same but this time around I got my mom with me. Rather than spending the whole night in the house doing nothing, might as well spend some quality time together with her (Now, we hardly got the chances to talk or even meet . Note to myself - Need to go home more often).

Before that, I treated her to an Italian restaurant somewhere in Camberwell. I always talk about that restaurant to my sister but still, I didn't managed to bring her there.

What I noticed about the celebrations here in Melbourne when compared to the one in Malaysia is the crowd. Here, it's always about spending the time with the family, enjoying the firework display together with the loved one (no matter young or old), bringing foods from home (more like a picnic) whereas in Malaysia, only the young/teenagers/couples occupied the whole area doing nothing but just making noises plus not forgetting littering the whole area.

1st of January 2009, supposed to be the day that I leave Melbourne but unfortunately, my flight got delayed for more than 11 hours and luckily Air Asia provide us with a place to stay while waiting for the aircraft to be ready.

Nothing much to do in here but watching the TV. I tried to stay awake as much as possible so that I can sleep during my entire journey home (Wise decision).

P/s I'm off to Lumut in a short while.

A Day In Sabah

Pantai Tanjung Ara/Aru??? I'm not sure which one of it is the correct name (Short term memory loss).

Enjoying a fresh coconut drink by the seaside, nothing beats this.

Had my dinner together with the staffs in KK.

That's not me. Just fooling around with the guys since it's going to be my last day in KK.

At 1Borneo, the newest shopping centre in KK.

P/s To Honeylemon and Eedany if you're reading this, sorry for not being able to meet with you guys there in KK. My schedule over there is pretty tight but like what I said before, I'll definitely will be there again and really hopefull if we can hang around together and change stories. Cheers.

First Visit To East Malaysia

I've been spending most of my life here in Malaysia but sad to say, this is my first time to east Malaysia or Sabah, to be precise.

If the company does not send me here to work, I'm definitely sure it's going to be a very, very long time before I can set my foot here, on my own, that is.

Bukit Bendera's observation deck. A nice place to relax after a hard day at work.

View from above, overlooking the city.

Night time. FYI, I did not stay there till nightfall. This picture is taken on the following day.

My first visit here but definitely it wont be my last.

P/s Been busy with work. Got plenty of stuffs to share but so little time to spend. Thanks to everyone for your support and I'll definitely pay you guys a visit.

A Day In Penang

Walking along with 'Spongebob' at a 'pasar malam' in Cheroktokun (not sure about the spelling - can someone correct me if I'm wrong, thanks).
"Jatuh la saham kamu jalan dengan 'natang' tu", said my brother in law.
"Haha, takper kalau jatuh pun skit ajer, I still got plenty"

Ouchhh, I scratched my sister car. It's not my fault but some crazy Penang driver did it.
Luckily it is not too visible but I still need to sent it to the workshop to do some minor 'touch up'.

P/s Spending or should I say wasting my Valentine day with my brother & a faulty radiator.

Last Day in Pondok Cabe

I'm supposed to stay there till the job is done but there is some other job still pending back in Kuala Lumpur. So, they cut short my trip in here.

Waiting for my plane. One thing good in here is that the foods are super-duper cheap. Just eat till your heart content.

Not a good view from here but I got the seat near the emergency door (more legroom), so no complaining from me.

'Makan' time again. I'm definitely accumulating weight day by day.

P/s Just solved a 'major' problem here in the office (I hope).

Main Mode of Transportation


The 'Blue Bird' Taxi. Very reliable.

Angkut or as we know it in here as 'bas mini'. Sometimes, we can get 'free entertainment' inside it.

'Margo City'. The stuffs in here are really cheap but too bad I didn't bring a lot of rupiah.

P/s I'm about to depart to Kuala Lumpur.

The Cobbler

Nothing much to say but in here (Jakarta), for every half an hour, various type of peoples will come and sell stuff right in front of the doorstep ranging from vegetables seller, mee goreng seller complete with their portable gas cooker plus wok, cobbler, dry or wet food sellers, anything, just name it can be bought without leaving the house. Talk about convenience.

VW Combi

Waiting for the shoes the get fixed.

A 'good' way to waste time & money (BTW, that's not me).

P/s I'm in Penang right now. Need to unwind a little bit before I go to Kuantan tomorrow morning.

Driving In Jakarta

There is even a Giant hypermarket here in Jakarta, talk about Malaysian achievement.

Most of the roads in Jakarta looked like this (minus the on in the city).

'Macet total'. This is what I've to endure every single day when I'm off to work and back.

For a 17 km journey, it took us nearly an hour to get there.

The way the peoples drive and ride in here are really different when compared to peoples in Malaysia or Australia but by now I got used to it already.

The vehicle, a Kia Caren with a 1.8 litre engine and comes with a manual transmission, sweet (I loves driving manual car).

P/s Better to lay low, it's not the right time yet...

Tragedy Strike

29 January 2009. What happen on that day really left me scared and speechless. I will definitely remember it for the rest of my life. Words really could not apprehend the whole situation. Please read the newspaper article below to know what actually happen on that faithful day.

KNKT probes helicopter crash site in Pondok Cabe

The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Thu, 01/29/2009 2:02 PM | Jakarta

Crashed Chopper: Investigators examine the Super-Puma helicopter destroyed when it crashed at Pondok Cabe airfield in Tangerang, Banten, on Thursday. The crash early Thursday killed two technicians. The pilot and an on-board technician both survived. Antara/Prasetyo Utomo

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT) have arrived at Pondok Cabe airfield in Tangerang to investigate the helicopter crash that killed two technicians earlier Thursday. The crash site, located in front of Pelita Air's service hangar, was cordoned off and under police guard. Journalists were not allowed to enter the area. The bodies of the victims, Ahmad Suparja (25) and Sri Setyobudi (42) were taken to Fatmawati Hospital in South Jakarta. The pilot of the twin engine Super-Puma helicopter, Rohman Hadi (50), and a technician who was inside the chopper, HM Hardi (52), survived, but were still suffering from shock. South Jakarta Police chief Sr. Comr. Chairul Anwar said at the crash site the police had yet to figure out the chronology of the incident. "What we know so far is they were doing a routine maintenance check. They started up the engine and the pilot began to lift the chopper when it suddenly collapsed," Chairul told journalists, as quoted by He said the helicopter's blades had sliced through the two technicians. "It's quite severe, they were cut in two," he said. (dre)

I was there when it happen. I heard a loud 'bang' and then suddenly there was a commotion.

I saw peoples running outside shouting "Super Puma jatuh, Super Puma jatuh"
This is the furthest that I can go. I really am not brave enough to go any further.

The main rotor blade of the helicopter slices into the two technicians situated nearby. You can see clearly the bodies of the two of them. One of them is decapitated and the head flung almost 100m from the accident location.

Not sure who this is but later on some minister show up to know the matter first hand.

The area is being cordon until further notices.

Rains. Grieving time for everyone.

P/s Al-Fatihah to the both of them.
