Random.

The funniest/most random thing happened today.

Farah and I headed straight for dinner at California Pizza Kitchen, KLCC after ward works. We took a 2-seater near the window and started to chat and whine about our dull, boring life as medical students. Yadayadayada.

Not long after we ordered, 2 women came by and sat at the table next to us.  They were seated approximately a metre away from us, so it was natural that we sort of overheard the details of their conversation. I gathered that their names were Farah and Ayu too, so I texted Farah in silence and we both had a good laugh at the coincidence. Like how often do you find 2 people with similar names, seating right next to you right? Sungguh random.

So Farah and I continued gossipping talking about other random stuff like whos dating who, a friend of hers who is also a friend of mine who had lost some weight, how things were back in STF/SAB (Yes, Farah was from Aminuddin Baki yaww), which classmate should we text for CNY and the annoying ones we shouldn’t (Hehe), which doctor is over 30 and still single and whos not (LOL), etc etc. You know the drill. Heh heh heh.

But other than that, we were getting annoyed at the two women next to us. Farah was telling me about his school junior Nabil performing at last week’s Juara Lagu when we suddenly heard them say “Eh, Meet Uncle Hussein menang Juara Lagu kan!“, and “Haah, I sukaaaa lagu tu!“. Hellooooo, curik-curik dengar lepastu tetibe tukar topik apahal! Dahla suka Meet Uncle Hussein (OK, masih emo Faizal kalah, wtf).

And there was this one time when our dessert came, and they went, “Eh, sama laa dessert kita“. I was like, pull your chairs over and have dinner with us already, strangers! Damn.

So the time finally came for us to pay the bills. Suddenly, the aforementioned woman named “Ayu” startled us with a question. “Excuse me, you STF ke? My friend here overheard that one of you girls went to STF.”, while pointing at Farah.

KANTOI BIG TIME! TALK ABOUT EAVESDROPPING AT ITS BEST YAWWW!

It turns out that “Ayu” was also from STF! Tapi supersenior lah since she graduated in 1992. And we all had a good laugh when we introduced ourselves as Ayu and Farah. ROTFLMAO! What a coincidence..haih. Anyways we continued chatting about school and some other STFians that we knew, and no surprise that she was also in the band! Lagi galaklah kami bercerita, hehe.

So to my STF supersenior Miss Ayu Hanida, and her friend Farahida, thanks for making our day today. It sure took some guts to admit that you’ve been listening to our conversations right? Haha. What a small world we have eih? It’s scary how we are all connected in the world, even through the simplest of things, like our names and previous schools.

And speaking of STF, I’d like to share a Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah fact :

On 25/1/1999, a group of 150 scared/excited girls were dumped by their hopeful parents at the big ole gate in Jalan Tun Abdul Razak, JB. Little did they know that their next 5 years within the gate would be the BEST years of their lives. It would be the years that would mould them into the persons that they will be in the future. The girls became friends sisters over the years and even after 5 years of leaving their alma mater, they remain as close as ever, which just goes to show that the Srikandi spirit continues to live in each and every one of their hearts.

(OK aku cam tetibe semangat kan. Hehe.)

10 years and counting, girls. Sayang korang! 🙂

P/S : Selekeh gila kita dulu…

The Inauguration

So today’s THE day.

For “Hope” and “Change“. Or whatever they call it these days.

I wonder if he still has some Hussein left in him…

Mari boikot TV3.

If you know me, you would know that I AM NUTS about Faizal Tahir.

You would know that I can sing to every word of every song in Aku.Muzik.Kamu. Dengan expression muka ala-ala Faizal dan rambut terbang-terbang siap.

You would know that I absolutely adore him despite him being OTT and kadang-kadang poyo.

So, if you know me, you can surely understand how pissed I am at TV3 (and the judges) for not letting Faizal win the prestigious Anugerah Juara Lagu! OK fineeee he won Best Vocals, Best Performance and Best Ballad *smirks*, but as a Faizal Tahir fanatic MESTILAH AKU NAK DIA MENANG SEMUA! Kalau boleh Etnik Kreatif and Pop Rock tu pun nak sapu sekali HAHA.

Kudos to Meet Uncle Hussein though. They were awesome tonight, and that was probably their best performance of Lagu Untukmu that I’ve heard so far.

TAPI FAIZAL TAHIR LAGI AWESOME OK!!!

Hnsffgshs *insert swear word*. Menci!

Hehe.

FREE GAZA

This is the ultimate wake-up call. If the sight of our fellow Muslims being slaughtered does not jumpstart your inner perspectives, then I don’t know what will.

I wish I have enough knowledge and flair needed to write a hefty post about the Gaza massacre, but I obviously don’t.

What I am capable of doing though, is to get YOU to do the following:

  1. Continuous du’aa for our brothers and sisters. Never underestimate the power of a du’aa, yo.
  2. Spread awareness about the war against Palestine and Baitul-maqdis. Let the issue be known to your friends, family members and other acquaintainces.
  3. Monetary contribution. (Online banking sure comes in handy these days!) You can do so through MERCY Malaysia, CIMB: 14240006561053 or Aman Palestin Berhad, Bank Islam: 12029010047880 or Maybank: 562263010787.

Let’s do our part, people! This disproportionate retaliation from the Israelis have got to stop! May Allah have mercy upon our fellow Muslims and aid them in their struggles. Ameen.

Evolver

Evolver

“Lots of R&B dudes promise opulent nights of ecstasy, but Legend is so classy that these fantasies seem like real journalism.”

Rolling Stone Review

So John Legend is back with a new string of baby-making tunes in this new LP, Evolver. As the name suggests, he tries to evolve from the usual soothing signature style into a different path which is more electronic and sadly, “mainstream”.

I don’t quite fancy Evolver, to be honest.

Sure, the Grammy-nominated Green Light (feat. Andre 3000) is worthy of a listen and Legend’s bet with reggae on No Other Love (feat. Estelle) is one dreamy tune (especially when he sings “Gimme gimme oh so much, turn me on, turn me on.” LOL)

But tunes like Can’t Be My Lover is downright dreadful (Reggae at its worst!), and Good Morning is just way too corny. Well of course I do corny, but chirping birds, seriously?

Somehow it’s just too evolved that it doesn’t really sound like him. Piano rosak ke bang?

But as forgettable as it may sound, his husky crooning can still melt even the stoniest of hearts. Hehe. I am slowly getting the hang of Evolver, and now I can’t stop singing to Cross The Line (You’ve been my best friend, can we put this to bed then, tonight’s the night to cross the line – breaking the number one rule of romance – never sleep with your best friend!!!!!!!!!).

Come rain or shine, I’m still a fan. ♥
