What does this mean?(short stupid story)

Talapya Had a great 1 hour gayut-session with Ms Cranky. It was interesting.

Disclaimer :
1) The script has been slightly altered from the real conversation, but the geist is still there.
2) All the characters are fictional.

Just remember, Tuan = Two One = Twenty One, so my birthday is 21st June 80
Ms Cranky
You serious? 21st June 1980, Same birth date as my boyfriend..
(Excited) Wow! That's kewl...
Ms Cranky
My birthday is 12th June .. Me a gemini.. We Geminis can easily blend
(SIlent for 4 Seconds). .. That's exactly the birthday of the the girl whom i fancy at the moment

A thought struck Talapya during that 4 seconds. What does this weird conversation mean? is it a sign, or just coincidence?

Flash back.. 3 hours before : Menara Telekom.

Talapya was sitting alone waiting for Moms at the Food Court (tepi longkang). The Aci from the stall asked for his order,
"Mau minum apa?".
"Milo Ais", he replied.
"Makan?", the normal Mamak getting-the-order script.
"Nanti dulu, tunggu kawan"

The Aci came back several minutes later and brought him his glass of Milo Ice. He stirred while looking around at a bunch of TM staff, chatting loudly about sumthing that is supposedly be interesting. He was not listening at the conversation, but the way they are laughing, he assumes that it is sumthing interesting.

Assumes. Ass-u-me. Assumed that a checkered shirt girl was genuinely interested in him 3-4 years back, which made him wait for her for 3 years.

"Masuk angin, keluar asap", he tells himself.
He met the checkered shirt girl a few days back during lunch time. He told himself to be strong when he saw her, but inside, he felt like his heart was torn apart all over again, with the words "Kawan aje" playing and infinite loop inside his head.
Stomach Grumbled.

"Aci, kasik la Maggi Goreng satu",Talapya decided, to-hell with Moms
While waiting for the maggi goreng, he decided to send an sms to Ms Cranky (Nickname is given due to crankiness of the person, which was a result of her, not being able to answer her exam questions)
and the flow goes:

Maggi goreng arrive.Sms Ms Cranky
Finished the whole plate.Sms Ms Cranky
Sms Moms, " Gua chow dulu, dah habes makan dah". Sms Ms Cranky
Moms replied, " sorry la, banyak kerja, tak sempat." Sms Ms Cranky
Walk back to the car. Sms Ms Cranky
Stuck in the traffic jam. Sms Ms Cranky
Arrived at SWY exchange. Sms Ms Cranky
Reboot Laptop. Sms Ms Cranky

COmplete the standby list for month of October. Call Ms Cranky.

Ms Cranky taught Talapya a few things:
1) What is intelligence? How do you define an intelligent person?
2) (lesson is secret : sumthing about *tootttt)
3) Buying a flower as a present to a girl is sensitive and romantic, not gay and softee.
4) Talapya is a good person and achieved a lot of things that he should be proud of.

After a 1 hour of not-so-intelligent conversation, they arrived at the conversation above.

What does that means? is it a sign or is it just coincidence? Should he proceed?

God i pray and beg for him to get the hidayah, and if it is good for him, please give him the strength to proceed, and make his heart "tetap"


I know this story sucks. Sorry if i bored u people to death.

p/s: Ms Cranky, wish you all the happiness in the world and may your wish come true

Hold You Down - J. Lo Feat Fat Joe

I was stuck in a jam when i heard this song the first time. It has a catchy tune, and the lyrics are simple. That was like 2 months ago and i have been trying to find the title ever since.

Mmmbop Dare

How the hell do you type the mmbop part in the mmbop song?

My version : MMbop bedebab ba dubap dubidabadubap emdap bop duuu

Haha.. i dare you.. try weyh! this should be fun.

Happy Birthdayyyy!!

Yo wasappp peeps!!
As promised, i'm backkk!!! not gonna leave u peeps with the last entry for long, coz it was bo-oh-ring. Somebody actually said that my writing showed that i was in the 'serabut' state. Which was quite true. But nuthing but a good nite's sleep to boost your energy level up and put away all the negative energy in ur body.

I wanna wish happy birthday to 2 of my fwens who share their birthday today. Happy birthday to Salah and Zaki Bluespect!!

(Compliments to Zaki & Salah's Friendster page)

Aaanyways, i suddenly noticed that the last few weeks ended so fast. It's already the weekends! With all the hardwork, day and night, the feeling of time just disappeared. Have u ever went to a movie where time seems to be running slow? Lots! That's when u know that the movie sucks! Have u ever went to a movie that suddenly, it's already the end? ALso lots! That's when you know that the movie was a good one. But does this mean that when you don't feel the time doing your work, it means u enjoy ur work?

Definitely N...O.... No. It's just that you are to burdened up with work that you don't have time to justify to urselves whether u enjoy ur job, or not. U just do it, without feeling. LIke a zombie.

Well i'm not gonna be a zombie. That's why i told myself.. hey!, stop for a while to look back and reflect. The answer? Yes, i do enjoy my work. Tho sumtimes things are sh*tty, i still enjoy it.

How? , sum might say? How can u still enjoy ur work? Well, the secret is, i decided not to ignore external thingies that are not within my control, and tell myself that if i wanna be happy.. then i will be happy.

Tho at times u 'kena bambu' by customers... :))
Tho at times u feel unappreciated .... :)
Tho at times u feel used.... :I
Tho at times u feel overshadowed by other peoples skliz .. :(
Tho at times u feel u have no control of anything.. :((
:)) --> :) --> :I --> :( --> :((

Damn.. i'm turning into Nini. Maybe i'm just tired.

But on a happier tone & Note,

Happy Birthday Salah And Zaki

--- eeeendddddddddddd ---

Relationships 101

I know, i know, i am not the person who has the experience and the credibility to talk about this subject. But somehow tonite, after god knows how many hours of slaving myself for TM (now = 4 a.m., just got back), i feel like writing about this subject.
Ok i'm blank... me don't know nuts about relationships. I give up. SO lemme think of another topic.
Haa! i know, lemme talk about politics..
Ok i forgot. I don't give a damn about politics all i know is that i was suddenly elected as Ketua Pemuda UMNO at my residential area.
What next? what do i know.. hem hemm..
1) I do know that out of the blue i am back in touch with Anis, my Primary School friend
2) I do know i like this cartoon (compliments to Hamam)
3) I do know i Like like to sleep.. and it already 4:43 a.m.... and i am getting sleepy.
Thus proving that blogging has turned me into a self absorbed person.
SOrry guys.. this is one of those days that i write something meaningless and a waste of your time. Promise I'll update again asap.... promise!!!!

Scent of a Woman, and Perdana

Hurray! Managed to get Scent of a Woman DVD! whoo-ah! (gaya Al Pacino). Bought it at Amcorp Mall, third floor. It's the mot reliable shop for DVD's. Trust them to have movies which people never speak off. (yes, including 'yang baikk punyaaa')

On the way to the car, i was stopped by a few chinese men. Thought they wanted to POW me, or sumthing, but instead, asked me to open up a coupon. Surprise! i am the lucky few who got a chance to win a Perdana V6. Yes, a chance. But in order to enter the contest, i have to buy RM 2997 worth of their products. Damn, i was happy for only about 2 minute.

Decided to play along and went to their office, hoping to get more info on this competition. Ayil told me it's a scam, but, whutdehel.. selamba. Bagi puas hati. But then, after seeing their office (in Kelana Jaya) and the agreement form (which was photostated), i couldn't care less about entering the competition. Furthermore, my mom stopped me by saying that we don't need no more foot massagers or sewing kit. At this point, since entering this competition can be labled as an act of 'menderhaka'ing, so i stood my ground and said no.

This was a test of my loyalty to my mom. If i have had entered the competition, it would be a lose-lose situation:

a) If I win, Yes, i'll get the Perdana, But it would be Derhaka.

b) If I didn't get the Perdana? No need futher elaboration on that!

Back to Scent of a Woman, SUperb la AL Pacino. But to those who like action, stay away from this movie! it is all talk! I like the part where AL Pacino courts a girl and tangoed with her.

How i wish i could tango.

Oii.. anybody.. can teach me ar?

p/s: Tango, when you get tangled up, just move on, like life.

Bangsawan & The Start of a Journey

Part 1 : Bangsawan Theatre

Bangsawan theatre : Usually it involves me bitching endlessly during and after the show.
After countless contemplation, I went to a bangsawan theatre today.
Expected that it would suck and that's why i didn't even bother to ask the title fo the show.
Frankly, I just went because Mama and Megat is in it.
SUrprisingly i enjoyed every minute of it (Qahar would disagree, but whutdehel)
Koodos to En Effindi (the director) for conjuring a magnificent bangsawan. Just when u start to get of focused because of things starting to get serious, he sprinkles a wee bit of comic and laughter.
Koodos to Mama and Megat for giving a wonderful performance.
Koodos to other actors too. Koodos to that somebody who drew the backdrop. Marvellous.
I Have no pictures, cause i haven't bought my digicam ..:(.
But i would like to put another picture and dedicate it to myself:
(Compliments to my friendster friend : Fara.)
For all the guys wondering, her name is Bea Alonzo. She is a phillipine actress.
ON TO PART 2 : Start of a journey
Had a sort-of-heart-to-heart discussion with Wahidah while i was culik-ing her after the bangsawan show and one of the many thing is concerning a saying that i got from the movie "Juwana Mann" :
Being alone does not mean you have to be lonely.
But come to think of it, Being in crowd does not guarantee that u are lonely-free.
So what DOES make you feel 'un-lonely' ? (no such word, but just bare with me, i know Farul and Qz can't stand this) .
A wise man once told me that when you get close to god, u will never feel lonely.
Well, i guess, if you want to be close to god, you have to find him first.
and so, begin the journey of a thousand steps....

This place, 8 hours a day

My nameplate :

I just noticed that 8 hrs a day, like it or not, u spend time in the office, and you have to meet your officemates. And if i get stuck in the same department (and my officemates get stuck too) then we'll spend 8 hours together until we retire. (let us pray to god that does not happenn!)
They are : Chot, Iqbal, Rafiz and Asyie. Erly and Amai are also in the same department. But since they are stationed in CYberjaya, i don't really see them much.
Aaaanyway.. this is my boss's nameplate :
The place i spend my time 8 hours at has an environment that fluctuates. Sumtimes it is so serene and you can see people reading newspapers, and chatting along happily. There are also times when it is worst than wall street. You actually here people shouting things like "kau gila!" and "kau la lembu!".
and you don't even hear that in wall street
but you don't here that much anymore since the warning from our boss (hurrah!, but hope it lasts)
However, things has start to pick up its pace lately, that when u punch in at 830, you never stop working until 6.. or 7 p.m. you read emails of people expecting you to do things for them, receive calls from people who complaints, write reports so that the boss can answer to his boss, and again, calls from ppl who wants you to explain, but once you explain, they totally ignore what you said and 'buat kepala sendiri', and the list goes on..(blood pressure naik once i start thinking bout it)
But it is also a place where you meet ppl, where you meet new challenges and you show your worth. That's what keeps me going. AFter sum time, when you've made improvements, you start to appreciate this hell-hole and the ppl in it, coz this hell-hole is actually yours, and these people are your friends.
Centre of My hell-hole :
La di da.. life goes on.

You know

You Know...

When it comes to Mamak, who you gonna call? (you know),
Ayil, Tapai, Ceng, Farul and Rumet, that should complete all.

You know there is always room for forgiveness,
Who to turn to when you fell the loneliness.

You know there will always be someone to pick u up at KLIA/Pudu,
Maybe it's Ceng, 10 hours after u turn blue.

Of course, You know u'll never feel blue,
Because Ayil will always be there for you,

You know who to call when u feel like talking,
Or when Along really really feels like really eating.

You know who makes the best apple crumble,
When Esah serves it, evryone's ready to rumble!

You know who makes the best lemon meringue pie,
QZ make way! ready for Tapaiii!!

You know who has the most expensive camera,
Mestila Rumet.. Siapa lagi la??

You know they are concerned with your well-being,
When it comes to craziness, Farul's a ring-a-ding-ding.

You know who makes the best teh tarik?
It's Jue that is, Gimme a break!

New addition to the group, they make us shout with glee,
Must be Allya and Marissa, Duh..who else could it be!

Most importantly,

You know who your eternal friends are.
Those mentioned above that's who they are.

Jiwang kan? Muntahhh... Jom snuker weyh!!

(Disclaimer: member lain jangan jealous. Tujuan entry ini adalah untuk bodek Esah,Jue,Qz,ngan Along untuk membenarkan satu game snooker.. wuuhuh)

Today is Sept 11

Hey, i just noticed that today is Sept 11th! Since today is the first day of blogging, i should be excused from being over-eager to write 3-4 entries per day. Dun't worry, this will phase off soon.
Just repaired my sis's Samsung E-700 phone. Love the design. Went to summit to repair the casing/housing, since it was broken an the battery was loose. Cost me 45 bucks just to change the housing/casing (which one ar?). The kedai girl told me that if i were to go to an ori samsung service centre, they will charge rm 200 just for the service. Damn. WIth that, easily she convinced me to repair at her shop. Forgot to bargain.. haiya. STuck with RM 45. Should have bargained.
Also, 'usha'ed for a good camera to buy. Since now i have my own blog and it would be dull without pictures. Any recommendations anyone? Usually for tech stuff, i'd turn to rumet, since he is such a whiz when it comes to gadgets and techie stuff. He'd turn down a ferrari to buy a wira with all the functionalities a human could think off. I salute you.
Since i have no camera, here are 2 pics taken from the net to remember Sept 11 by:
Yes, it is the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon
Went to chatterz subang to lepak with Lin n Zemie. The usual topic of "bila nak kawen?" and "how to get a girl/boyfriend?" and also " Ceng amcam aa, smooth ke nak kahwen ni?". Yes, Ceng u have always been our topic. :). And yes, the topic of "Tapai vs. Ayil : Siapa lagi player?". Mesti la Ayil!! tok gurukuuu.. ahhaha.
And oh, whoever wants to go to Anugerah Erra on the 17th, Zemie has 5 tickets (2 tickets still free). Only handsome and 'beriman' guys should call her to get the tickets (Conversation on the topic "what is zemie/lin's taste in men" referred).
(Aku tolong ko ni Zemie, good Luck!)
Damn, i wish i have a camera. I really do.

Uploading Pic in Profile

Haihh, why la so complicated? Cannot design so it can be at a click of a button mehhh. Well for all beginner's (like me self), u have to post it, and while editting, you :
1) go to Edit Html mode and copy the URL.
2) go to edit profile and paste the URL.

Well here goes:

1) Pic of me At london starbucks, Coffee anyone? (Note :this, i wanna put in my profile)

2) Pic of my girlfriend.. Not!!! But definitely any guys dream girl. (Note: definitely don't wanna put this in my profile. Don't want guys flocking all over me!).

Footnote : For all you guys wondering, She is some Phillipino actress. Why la they don't make girls like that over here? whyyyyy??

My First Blog Entry

This is my first blog entry. Used to think blogging is stupid. Why the heck would you want everybody to read your whole-life journal for?

Here are the reasons y i start blogging:

1) Well, when ur 25 and u start forgetting ur past, (things you do and people u've met), that's a humongous problem. However, this still does not justify blogging, u can always write the old fashioned way : the diary, which leads to reason 2>

2) I lost my diary! damit. Being absent minded, i always loose my stuff. So koodos blogspot for their time and effort to keep everybody's life journal! (who runs blogspot, does anyone know?) Makes my life easier. Just hope i don't forget my username and password!

3) My 2 cute sisters started blogging before me and reading their blogs are cool. Though Nini's blog is a wee bit depressing, but i still enjoy reading them. (Elin's blog is full of chicks, check it out guys!) Both of them have far more superior control over the English language than me and that sucks! (so excuse my grammar and feel free to correct me if i'm wrong) In my defense, Working in TM and having a background in a Malay Boarding school does not help my english much. But at least i'll have this blog to practice English, written English, at least. (have to join toastmasters club or sumthing for spoken English)

4) Just for the fun of it. Found out that you just have to have the right amount of exposure in your entries. Surely you can't just declare ur love in a blog and hope that girl will read your blog and put the reply in her blog (or, can you?) . So to keep this balance between over-exposure and under-exposure is a challenge to me. And this is fun!

Conclusion : Though some things are meant to be put in diaries (where it's private), but still publishing ur thots is a kewl thing so that deaf people can at least read to what you have to say.

Definition :
Deaf People : people who are self obsessed that they only listen to what they have to say, not others.
