Suicide Attempt?!

Wednesday, April 30, 2008
Remember the kidnapped-raped case of the UMS student? I heard from a trusted source that the girl had attempt suicide! Thanked God she'd fail to do so. She's still alive. Although my source coulndn't exactly provide me with the latest information of the girl's wherabout, I hope the girl will be okay. She must be feeling miserable now. Damn those to idiots@satans@morrons@stupidos! !!!

Reading back the story of the kidnapped-raped case, I feel proud to know that our fellow citizens from Tambunan had done their part in co-operating with the authorities to apprehend the two Satans. But, it's a shock and I am really heart-broken, regret and unsatisfied with the sentence given to them.

It's the life of the poor girl we are talking about here. She suffered so much and I don't think it's easy for her to retain her normal life despite all she had been through.

I don't know.. I usually good with words but I just can't find the right one to express what I'm feeling now...

God, show some mercy to her. Let her see the light even if it's the thinnest of all so that she can get well, even better than before. Let's pray for her people... Let's pray for her...

The FIRST 50s in My Life

Tuesday, April 29, 2008
Copied and modified from Jerryinc (http://www.periphrastic-prolix.blogspot.com/) who "plagiarized this from somewhere but somehow lost its original link"
Happy Reading people :)

1. First Memory?
God, can't trace the memory lane.. Hahaha..

2. First Pet
My dog named Rambo. Was waiting for the bus with my mom when Rambo was ran by a car infront of our eyes. It died a moment later. I missed out school, my mom applied for a leave and my father came home early from work. We burried Rambo at the back of our house and yes, I was so sad that I could never have another pet just because I'm scared that it will soon die.

3. First Embarrassing Moment
I was a 6 years old kindergarten kid during that time. I had a stomach-ache and couldn't answer the call of nature in its appropriate place and I 'have' to do it over my pants. God, that's embarrassing!

4. First “Best Friend”
The Televisyion. I spent, almost all the time, being alone at house when I was till a kid. The nearest neighbours are about half kilometres away and I am too lazy to walk there just to get kicked and punched! The'kids' who used to do that to me are still there now, doing nothing. And I am writing my own blog!

5. First Night Away from Home
I'm not really sure. But maybe during camping at Pantai Dantai, Kota Belud. It's not like camping anyway. I brought my 'bantal paluk', my blanket etc. Who said you can't bring your home any where... hahahaha

6. First Love
A girl named Afsa. Hahaha... We were co-monitors in our class during Primary 1. I remembered I bought her 20sen mee-hun... Hahahaha.. She move to Tawau when we were Primary 2 and I never saw her since. I have no idea where she is currently...

7. First Unrequited Love
My blind date I have during school days. Chatted with this girl, pretty in photos but when finally we decided to meet up, she's nothing like the photos she sent. Moral to all, please don't fool yourself over the internet because you'll never know what's going to happen next. Be honest and people will be honest to you too. And the moral to me, be sensible in judging people especially those I will be meeting from the internet!

8. First Unreturned Love
This is another humiliating experience. Like this girl in my class and I thought she likes me too but I found out, she's into my best friend! You know how you share things with your best pal? We're still cool though, right until now.

9. First Kiss
Hahahaha.. I could never forget this. I was 16 and the girl was 17. She's married to an Aussie now but i got the first kiss! It was passionately, erm... let me keep that to myself :p

10. First Bike
Primary 4, 10 years old to be exact. I came home this one fine day and I saw a BMX parked near my father's car. Without a second thought, grabbed the bike and cycled away. Yes, it was for me!

11. First Car
Don't really have a car. The car I'm using now belongs to my mom but I use it on my everyday plus night basis. I call her Baby. Its technically mine, I think, because I pay for the loan. Really had a sweet bitter moments with Baby because apart from being in my room, being with her and browsing around is a way for me pass the time.

12. First Time on a Motorcycle
Huhuhuhu... amongst my darkest moment was being on a motorcycle. I really don't want to elaborate more :(

13. First Plane Trip
When I was 15, joining some Youth event in Kuching, Sarawak. I frowned when the plane started to move. I feel like vomitting inside the plane too.. thank God I didn't

14. First Trip Abroad
To the Free Land of Thailand with Air Asia, of course, back in 2005.But not until the 2nd time beind there did I really enjoyed the trip. My blog header photo was taken during that 2nd trip where I really really REALLY walked the street of Bangkok being a backpacker.

15. First Job
I'm a bit confused with this questions. First job as in what? I remembered I help my uncle renovating his house suring semestar break back when I was a Form 3 student. I got paid. Being a Security Guard for Wong Kwok Group while waiting for my SPM and a part timer at Shang-ri La Rasa Ria, Tuaran. Am I embarassed? Back then, yes but now, I think, it's for a greater good. I am more confident in my every day life and I know some people, famous people and not-so famous people that I can connect with. I shaked hands with Datuk Wong Kwok himself, the founder of Wong Kwok Group.

16. First Apartment
Not yet but looking forward to have one. I wish...

17. First Furniture Purchased New
My book shelf. I like reading books and I have a large collection of books, fiction and non-fiction. I'm thinking of buying another shelf as what I have now wouldn't fit anymore.

18. First Regret
I don't know and I'm not sure. Not that I don't regret any thing but there's so many things I regret not doing and for doing it.. So many...

19. First Fight
Haiyo, what kind of question is this... Hahahaha...

22. First Surgery

23. First Hospital Stay
Food poison. Form 5. I also witnessed a man died while I was at the hospital. We talk this one day but at the same night, he passed away. He sleeps beside my bed. Life is a blink of an eye, I then realize...

24. First Automobile Accident
Form 1, driving without license.. I almost hit a cyclist. It was an extreme nightmare!

25. First Trip to the Emergency Room
In my case, sending a student of mine in the ER.. but eh, the stitches on foot and head count juga ba kan?

50. First Fight With A Teacher
I look up to every good teacher but I must say that I don't like fighting with someone I respect. But if you insist, my first fight with a teacher - a warden in my school. He gave too much power to the Hostel Committe and gave them right to expel anyone. I confronted the Committe and they threaten to expel me. I met up with the warden, conveyed my dissatisfaction and that night, the commitee changed! And I was one of them... Not that I want to but I just want to defend my 'not so lucky friends'... You see, I am a Humanitarian..

These are the FIRST 50s in my life. It's good to remember but it's better to learn from it..

Song of the Day

Thursday, April 24, 2008
I heard this song, for the first time, last Monday, played in HotFm. I stop a while to have a close admiration of the lyrics and how it was sang by our very own Datuk Siti. I just don't know why. I think, again, I think, something is not quite right with the pitch. I don't know.. Maybe it's just me.

But still I like the lyric very much. Inspiring in many ways...

Melawan Kesepian - Datuk Siti Nurhaliza

Apapun yang terjadi
Berjalanlah tanpa henti
Air mata tertahan
Waktu untuk dijatuhkan

Nanti kita kan tahu
Betapa bijaknya hidup
Sepahit apapun ini
Pelajaran yang berarti

Semoga kepergianmu
Tak akan merubah apapun
Semoga mampu kulawan
Kesepianku

Nanti kita kan tahu
Betapa bijaknya hidup
Sepahit apapun ini
Pelajaran yang berarti

Semoga kepergianmu
Tak akan merubah apapun
Semoga mampu kulawan
Kesepianku

Nanti kita kan tahu
Betapa bijaknya hidup

Penangan blog

MAJALAH Time pada 2006 mencatat sejarah apabila menamakan komputer sebagai `Person of the Year’ atau tokoh tahun ini. Anda. Ya, anda. Anda menguasai era maklumat. Selamat datang ke dunia anda. Inilah kata-kata muka depan majalah itu. Ledakan pertumbuhan dan pengaruh hasil kandungan internet, terutama blog diiktiraf di peringkat global dua tahun lalu. Tahun ini, blog dan blogger menerima pengiktirafan di negara ini apabila kuasa dan pengaruhnya mula diakui. Keputusan pilihan raya umum ke-12 yang dipengaruhi oleh blog dan blogger adalah bukti utama. Kini tiada siapa dapat menafikan bahawa media baru ini mempunyai kedudukan, fungsi dan tanggungjawab dalam dunia maklumat.

Blog media baru berpengaruhKIRA-KIRA 10 tahun lalu, sesiapa yang mengaku mempunyai blog dan bergelar penulis blog (blogger), dipandang seperti makhluk asing. Kini anda boleh membaca kira-kira 500,000 blog yang diwujudkan blogger negara ini. Kemunculan blog hanya mula diperkatakan sejak beberapa tahun lalu walaupun perhatian lebih tertumpu kepada blog politik.
Bagaimanapun, keadaan berubah secara drastik sejak kebelakangan ini. Ramai yang bercakap mengenai blog dan menjadi blogger.

Kehangatan pengaruh blog dikaitkan dengan kempen pilihan raya umum ke-12 lalu apabila blog yang dikategorikan sebagai media baru digunakan secara berkesan sama ada oleh individu mahu pun parti politik. Mengulas perkembangan blog di negara ini, Pensyarah Pengajian Media Universiti Malaya, Dr Abu Hassan Hasbullah, berkata antara perintis kemunculan blog di negara ini adalah sekumpulan blogger yang membentuk komuniti Geng Journal pada 1998. Ketika majoriti masyarakat masih buta mengenai blog, katanya blogger seperti Tok Rimau dan Bluehikari merintis minat terhadap blog.

Beliau berkata, perkembangan blog meningkat selepas insiden politik membabitkan penyingkiran bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, yang dituruti kemunculan pelbagai blog seperti Mahazalim dan Mahafiraun. Sejak empat tahun lalu, katanya perkembangan blog mula memberangsangkan, tetapi masih tidak disedari dan dipedulikan hingga Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-12, bulan lalu, blog menonjolkan pengaruh sebagai media baru yang memberi kesan besar. Bluehikari atau nama sebenarnya, Ludinata Misnun, berkata ketika Tok Rimau, iaitu bekas Presiden Geng Jurnal membentangkan kertas penyelidikan bertajuk Web Log: Kuasa menerbit di hujung jari dalam satu seminar peringkat kebangsaan pada 2002, isu blog yang dibentangkan itu kurang mendapat sambutan.

Selain itu, katanya membuat blog ketika itu lebih susah kerana prosesnya sama seperti membina laman web yang perlu membuat reka bentuk sendiri. Katanya, zaman sekarang untuk berblog sangat mudah kerana ada laman web menyediakan kemudahan blog seperti Blogspot, Wordpress atau Diaryland. Hanya perlu daftar, pilih reka bentuk diminati dan mula menulis. Hari ini, ramai yang bergelar blogger, tetapi semudah itukah menjadi blogger? Rebecca Blood, seorang blogger veteran yang juga pengarang The Weblog Handbook, menyatakan blogger adalah mereka yang sangat berminat terhadap web. Evan Williams yang mengasaskan Blogger.com pula berpandangan bahawa blogger adalah golongan muda yang menggunakan blog untuk berkomunikasi dengan rakan sebaya.

Sudah tentu hari ini, ada blogger veteran berumur lingkungan 50-an atau lebih tua, tetapi majoriti blogger adalah golongan muda yang dinamik, luar biasa, mempunyai pendirian dan tidak takut melahirkan pandangan mereka. Setiap orang boleh memberi 1001 macam alasan untuk memiliki blog, tetapi blogger adalah seorang yang tahu menghargai pandangannya. Tanyalah kepada sesiapa yang memiliki blog. Mengemas kini blog setiap hari menyebabkan dirinya mempertimbangkan pandangannya dengan berhati-hati serta berasakan pandangannya unik dan perlu disuarakan. Pada masa sama, ada ramai blogger yang hanya memuatkan luahan hati kecewa, putus harapan dan meracau tidak tentu hala. Blog begini selayaknya dimasukkan ke dalam bakul sampah. Seorang blogger harus mampu melahirkan dirinya dalam penulisan, mahu berkomunikasi dengan orang lain dan berterus terang.

Blogger, Yasser Arafat Ishak yang dikenali sebagai Jiwarasa berkata, blog yang baik selalunya akan mendapat perhatian dan ibarat pasaran terbuka yang pengunjung mempunyai pilihan. Blog yang baru sering meletakkan alamat blog yang bagus di blog masing-masing. Katanya, memuatkan blog yang bagus di blog masing-masing bagaikan satu trend untuk menempatkan diri dalam kelompok blog. “Pengunjung blog juga cerdik dan bijak memilih bahan yang baik. Mereka selalunya akan membuat rujukan silang di mesin carian Yahoo dan Google untuk mendapat kepastian sesuatu fakta yang ditulis di blog,” katanya.

Apakah faktor yang menyebabkan blog popular? Sifat interaktif adalah punca menyebabkan blog mendapat perhatian ramai. Semua orang berpeluang memberikan pandangan walaupun tidak semua pandangan itu bernilai. Blog bukan saja membolehkan blogger memberikan pandangan mengenai sesuatu isu, tetapi pembaca menyuarakan pandangan masing-masing. Anda mahu bersetuju, membangkang, menambah maklumat dan fakta baru. Semuanya dalam blog. Blogger perlu ada sikap kawal selia kendiri LESEN besar penulis blog (blogger) untuk menulis mengenai apa saja di atas muka bumi ini menimbulkan banyak persoalan.

Melihat sesetengah blog, penulisan bukan berisi fakta dan kebenaran, tetapi penuh dengan fitnah, kepalsuan dan bersumberkan khabar angin. Malangnya, apa yang ditulis dipercayai sebagai suatu kebenaran. Dalam teori komunikasi, apabila sesuatu pembohongan diulang-ulang, maka pembohongan itu dianggap benar. Dalam blog, proses yang sama juga berlaku. Pensyarah Pengajian Media Universiti Malaya, Dr Abu Hassan Hasbullah, berkata sebelum pilihan raya umum ke-12 lalu, ada anggapan bahawa harga rumah melambung naik di Pulau Pinang, Perak, Selangor dan Kedah. Katanya, anggapan itu berlegar dalam dunia blog dan maklumat itu tidak diketahui ketepatan serta kesahihannya. “Tiada siapa tahu perkara ini, tetapi anggapan ini wujud di kalangan masyarakat negeri berkenaan. Oleh kerana tiada siapa menafikan maklumat ini, maka maklumat yang disebarkan melalui blog dianggap benar,” katanya.

Dalam era perang maklumat, katanya blog membentuk maklumat dan sama ada maklumat itu tepat atau sahih adalah perkara kedua. Bagaimanapun, blogger tidak dibiarkan bebas sewenang-wenang. Di Singapura, dua etnik Cina dipenjarakan mengikut Akta Hasutan negara itu kerana memuatkan kenyataan anti Islam dalam blog mereka. Tahun lalu di Mesir, blogger Abdel Monem Mahmoud, ditangkap kerana menulis kenyataan anti kerajaan.

Di negara ini, tiada undang-undang secara khusus boleh digunakan untuk mengambil tindakan terhadap blogger dan blog. Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) hanya bertanggungjawab menyelia infrastruktur sesebuah laman web dan bukan memantau laman web yang menyeleweng. Bagaimanapun, Seksyen 211 dan 233 Akta Komunikasi dan Multimedia 1998 membolehkan individu yang menyalahgunakan Internet bagi menyebarkan kandungan yang bersifat palsu, mengancam atau yang jelik dikenakan tindakan.

Selain itu, Akta Hasutan 1948, Akta Fitnah 1957 dan Kanun Keseksaan boleh digunakan terhadap mereka yang tidak bertanggungjawab. Sudah ada beberapa kes blogger di negara ini disaman kerana tulisan mereka. Keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Alor Star supaya pengendali blog Malaysia Today, Raja Petra Kamaruddin, membayar ganti rugi RM4 juta kepada Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) dan Naib Canselornya, Tan Sri Dr Nordin Kardi, kerana memfitnah melalui artikel disiarkan dalam blognya pada 2006 adalah antara kes utama. Bagaimanapun, undang-undang bukan jawapan terhadap persoalan ini.

Menubuhkan polis siber seperti di sesetengah negara juga bukan penyelesaian terbaik. Harus ada kerelaan daripada blogger untuk bekerjasama dengan kerajaan membangunkan kod etika yang boleh diguna pakai di Malaysia. Lebih baik sikap kawal selia kendiri wujud di kalangan blogger berbanding pihak lain yang memaksanya.

Alif Aziz - Sayang sayang!

Wednesday, April 16, 2008
Just bought the CD guys and guess what, I think it's worthed...

Great vocal, great personalities and I seriously think, he's able to go far.. Despite the fresh look he's got, I think the song choices were appropriate as an introduction to the industry.

Alif, if you're reading this, buy me a drink!

Elparanza Soft Reunion (The Friendship) - 2nd Day

Wednesday, April 09, 2008
The Elparanza
Back - From left - Harry1 (Mr. DO to be), Boy (Mr. Punctual),
Abs (4th of OIAM 08), Joe ( the Host), Ned (Mr. Elparanza President)
Front - From left - Puma (Freelance Singer), Vero (Ms. Unduk Ngadau), Popo (singer, song writer), BB ( Ms. Beautiful Psychiatrist) and Harry2 (Apprentice Engineer)


From Elparanza Soft Reunion (The Friendship) - 1st day

I woke up, maybe, half before 9 a.m. My head is spinning and I felt dizzy. But I have to send Harry2 to SMC to have his leg reviewed by the doctor. Everybody was up except Harry1 who is still babily asleep on the couch.

Puma, Connie and Boy.

I think everybody is still flat, especially the guys. I know I am. Everybody is quite at first but Puma has already done with the breakfast. Excellent cooking I must say. Thx Pum.

Still, I have to send Harry2. While Harry2 was driving, I noticed something weird. As if something is scratching my the brake of my car. I soon realized that my brake pads is getting thinner and it had already touches the disc brake. I remind myself to change it after Harry2's review.

I was at the hospital by then, when I call Abs asking him his whereabout. To my surprise, he'll be arriving at 12.40 noon, which was about 1 hour earlier that what he told us before. Then I called Popo asking them to get ready before noon. I thought the review will take some time to finish so I decided to take a nap but before I manage to do that, Harry2 was already in front of me. To shorten the story, we were about half and hour late to the aiport. hehehehe... I drive slowly due to my brake condition. Can't fix it because of time constraint. And while I was suddenly a slow driver that day, as if every is also slow too. When we arrived at the airport, Abs was already standing there, waiting and cursing..

From left - Harry2, Harry2, Popo, Vero, Joe, Boy, Ned, Abs, Puma. Picture taken by BB. This photo was taken at Tanjung Aru Beach 2.

Next on my blog - sharing and sharing and more sharing. And the night outing was a memory worth remembering!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Wednesday, April 09, 2008
It's like this, most of the time, of the year. Maybe it's because of the Global Warming that had become an issue for quite sometimes, it's getting even hotter everyday. The temperature increases and the day after is always hotter and dryer than before. Then, it gets windy and a little bit of shower here and there and sometimes heavy rain during the late afternoon. Yes, it's like this, almost everyday.

Been busy again, as usual. Learning how to cope with the stress every now and then. It's my birthday, you see. I should be celebrating. I've been planning for that very day you see. How 'not too fancy and not too dull' kinda party that I would put up. Yeah, some snacks and drinks, perhaps some beers etc too. And friends wishing me happy birthday, giving me gifts and things like that. Just the typical party most of us would want to.

Then, come that day. I was busy and busy and busy until I totally forgot about the party that I should put up for myself. Was so frustuated and so sad.

But I realized one thing. Being like this, means focus and focus and more focus. I should not let myself down just because of some party. In the nutshell, it doesn't matter at all. I still have a long way to go and a lot of time to party, if I wish to. Then, I sat and glanced at myself. Wishing myself a very happy birthday - my 1st anniversary of working, learning to be more responsible, for the years to come.
