MMMEEEEE!!!

~it's been a crazy weekend.. what can i say.. they do things to people....

Lolita

here's the excerpt of lolita promised awhile ago... shida, have fun... ;)

"Now i wish to introduce the following idea. Between the age limits of nine and fourteen there occur maidens who, to certain bewitched travellers, twice or many times older than they, reveal the true nature which is not human, but nymphic (that is demoniac): and these chosen creatures I propose to designate as "nymphets'.

It will be marked that i substitute time terms for spatial ones. In fact, I would have the reader see "nine" and "fourteen" as the boundaries- the mirrory beaches and rosy rocks- of an enchanted islan haunted by those nymphets of mine and surroundes by a vast, misty sea. Between those age limits, are all girl-children nymphets? Of course not. Otherwise, we who are in the know, we lone voyagers, we nympholepts, would have long gone insane. Neither are good looks any criterion; and vulgarity, or at least what a given community terms so, does not necessarily im…

Acting my age~

Getting there

The last post wasn't meant for anyone.. just random thoughts inspired by fellow roomie.. and this one too.. not meant for any one in particular, inspired by a fren.. sorry if this causes u any offense..

U don't argue with someone who won't listen
someone who is on the defensive someone who wants to win someone who isn't going to understand u anyways someone who won't consider someone who thinks they're right, regardless someone who says they can't read you~ they dont know u then U don't worry about what u cant change what is not in your hands what you don't feel inclined towards what is really someone else's probem U let go of things that aren't worth fighting for things that seems so cloudy things that compromise who you think you are ppl who are just too hard for you to keep ppl who don't do ne good for you ppl who have moved on ppl who don't respect you ppl who u can't change ppl who couldn't care less abt u ppl you dislike anyways ppl whose co…

He thinks of you

the past always looks too good, the future always too scary, and the current always too boring..


when she gets dressed up she thinks of u, of the pictures she's gonna take and send to you..
and the whole of the week after she thinks of u,
she wonders what u think of her now,
of what u think of wt she's wearing,
wt u feel when u see her face dolled up for u...
that which you do not know..

when she's drunk she thinks of you, and how u look..
when she's drunk she talks of you and how she feels for you,
if that's anything at all..
at random times she thinks of you,
looks at the time and wonders what ur wearing,
where u are,
how u look like when u sleep,
when u bend down to put the plug into the socket,
open the door..

@ Uni (phase 2)

Ok... this wasn't exactly one of my smartest moves... did not actually manage to go down.. i figured the elevator was 'safe' bt no, it wasn't.. because i went there.. on the frigging second floor and there's a whole pile of bees right next to the elevator and not to mention chemical smoke everywhere, i looked at the cafetaria roof.. which is glass, on one side the lights were out and on the other side it looks like the haze just came back.. but wow.. how the hell did they manage to come up all the way to the second floor.. i wanted to get into the elevator bt how to walk ON all the dead bees, not to mention the still surviving bees running around.. and the smoke smells really really werid.. like mosquito smoke bt nt really sorta thing.. and how big was the hive ne ways.. my counterpart says he does not, bt he says sympathetically that we shouldn't have done this, cz the smoke is too much for such tiny bees(nvm they are still running arnd even with all the somk…

@ Uni (Phase I)

Guess what MONASH has.. a speaker thing! Been here two years and well this is the first time i heard the thing...

"ATTENTION PLEASE: TO ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF. YOU ARE ADVICED TO LEAVE THE CAFETARIA AND COMPOST AREA FROM 8 TILL FURTHER NOTICE. THIS IS FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY PRECAUTION. PLEASE ADHERE TO THIS NOTICE. THANK YOU"

We have a beeeee problem.. and i'm stuck in the comp lab because the attendant just came in and told us that we can't leave here till 9... i feel like a refugee.. we asked the attendant wt wz up and she told us very unconvincingly that she did not know (malaysian govt like-).. bt the rumor in the lab right now is, that we have a bee hive that we need to get rid off (prb near the hostel side gate B) (and that explains the presence of those bees in ur appt the other day bhav, and well at nickshan's gf's appt as well..) and they're getting rid of it..

I'm kindda wondering how they hope to contain us in this room.. and if i could wander do…

What's the Goss?

You think you know someone if u've known them for a LOOOONG time.. bt really, u never know someone... never ever ever over estimate the power of so called knowledge.. esp when it comes to ppl.. u never know someone.. even if they've grown up right in front of you..

A very 'reuniony' non-reunion yest, for the Sayfolians @ KLCC.. i don't necessarily think that i'm qualified to talk about most of the things that i intend on talking about.. bt wt are the chances that one of YOU will read it huh.. and really, it's my take on things that are happening.. so there's the disclaimer right in frnt of ur friggin face..

On the table were several issues..

Alisha's upcoming wedding in Feb: yes, it was a shock.. bt really, weddings mean 'congratulate, hand over the gift and hope things works for the best', and ur happy..and ur meant to be happy when ur friend's happy too.. so there.. CONGRATULATIONS.. and can't wait to let loose all on me first 'fr…

Weekday Bluuuuesss....

Happy Birthday India!

And yea! the haze has gone away

No natural rain, it's cloud seeding for today

Now Mr MB of Kelantan can say

God doesn't like the southern states anyway

Ha ha a petty attempt at poetry i say.. ok STOPPIT! I'm in a genial mood.. after an abs amazing weekend.. in my bed, lazing arnd the appt reading Lolita.. there's a classic bunch of lines in there, shall try n puttit in here.. made me wanna hurl.. bt then i read through them again, and realized that it was a real piece du literature.. albeit a bit twisted..

Had kicap with a half ripe mango straight-of-the- tree- from- slim-river.. delivered prompto by my appt 'too busy to sit' mother (wt's the point i shouted at her later over the fon, of driving all the way frm bentong, to slim river to pick up rice, to nilai to pick up the brother, then sunway to come in, hand out a box full of idlis, a mango and get back into the car only to call me up an hour later, asking me how i am, cz she forgot to do…

Gloom, Grey and the Indonesians...

Peposterous!!! i don't think i've used that word in aaaages.. bt the malaysian government honestly, is going to new highs on my list of countries with sucky sucky policies.. but don't worry singapore, ur right there on top.. even malaysia can't top you... And INDONESIA..death sentence i hear, for open burning...death sentence, my arse..

So we're all here, in Malaysia right, living and sharing space, and i suppose air as well. So we are breathing right, and we know that the air is horrible and smelly, and most importantly toxic, yes?
And I am amazed that I live in a country, where, citizens and commentators alike, have to 'commend' our dear Mr Prime Minister for lifting the veil of secrecy over the Air Pollutant Index.

It is not something to be commended, but any given human's natural right to know what he is breathing in, and how toxic it is, and how bad it is so he can protect himself (migrate, temporarily to Penang or well, FINE~ if u really have to, Sin…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BHAVANA K RAJ

I need to reinterate, i dislike the ppl in Sumatra. the weather today has been horrible.. heavy loom of haze and visibility at less than one kilometre... i need to go buy the mask, n the weekend should see me spending time at bentong because i'm running away frm the loom...

the weather reminds me of bangalore so much, except in b'lore the haze is the fog, and it's colder and the air doesn't add toxic impurities to ur lungs.. and when i came in, there was thunder and now i see wet ppl running arnd the comp lab so i'm assuming it's been raining.

good thing i shut all the windows in the house, all the curtains.. even the kitchen door has been shut and i'm pretty positive that it hasn't been shut in a long ass time because there was a layer of dust when i moved the door.. and i wonder how come, malaysians have for so long suffered the open fire burning ritual in sumatra, with this govt never applying pressue on te fellas..

last nite was interesting. i know i s…

Battle of the Bands 2005 @ Sunway Pyramid

Was at the battle of the bands today.... some sort of battle it turned out to be: one decent band that evoked all the energy we actually thought we were gonna spend, thought we were gonna use.. with the bland performances that we encountered,

one amazing amassing of crowd for an apparently christian band that sung the song, 'Crucified Love' (seriously, there's only so much we can integrate, only so much that we can tolerate). I thought it was the chick in green, thin n frail, with glitter on her eyes that drew the crowd, bt a friend informs me that it was a church band that played so i knw where the crowd came from now.

Apart from that, the nite was filled wit corny jokes, Emcee Slyde: the M&M's (cute) soft toy has no hair, neither do i... ha ha ha (laughs at own joke). Pre-rehearsed speech routine that frankly did nothing for us, we found more to laugh at (like the dude who i'm sure was on something when he was jumping arnd nearly falling off the steps, skinny l…

Topless Man at Window

Every day at 11, there's a man at the window. he removes his shirt and waves to the passers by. he's been doin that every single day the past couple of years, he's a legend.
There's nothing special about what he's done, except he's been consistent, creative and original. Carved a niche for himself in well, perhaps just the waving to passerby business, bt still.. that's something..

doesn't take much in life to become someone famous, or legendary, to make ppl wonder where u are from or who u are.. jes a couple of things that takes/keeps u apart from all the other millions of ppl arnd in the world. that's all.
