how many special people change,

how many lives are living strange,

where were you while we were getting high?

“What’s going on? The PM could land himself in jail. If he’s not careful, we may have a by-election in Pekan!”

– Karpal Singh, Bukit Gelugor MP

.

in light of the endless by-elections we had since 2008’s General Election for all sorts of reasons, Karpal Singh’s ‘prediction’ of the next one is downright hilarious. check out what he’s talking about here.

ps.. Karpal Singh is a hilarious man. when he speaks, you cannot help but laugh.

GRATITUDE July 20, 2009

be thankful that you don’t already have
everything you desire
if you did, what would there be to look
forward to?
be thankful when you don’t know something
for it gives you the opportunity to learn
be thankful for the difficult times
during those times you grow
be thankful for the limitations
because they give you opportunities
for improvement
be thankful for each challenge
because it will build your strength
and character
be thankful for your mistakes
they will teach you valuable lessons
be thankful when you’re tired and weary
because it means you’ve made a difference
it is easy to be thankful for the good things
a life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks
gratitude can turn a negative into a positive
find a way to be thankful for your troubles and
they can become your blessings.

she can kill with a smile
she can wound with her eyes
she can ruin your faith with her casual lies
and she only reveals what she wants you to see
she hides like a child
but she’s always a woman to me.

she can lead you to love
she can take you or leave you.
she can ask for the truth
but she’ll never believe you.
and she’ll take what you give her
as long as it’s free
she steals like a thief
but she’s always a woman to me.

she’ll promise you more
than the Garden of Eden
she’ll carelessly cut you
and laugh while you’re bleeding
but she’ll bring out the best
and the worst you can be
blame it all on yourself
she’s always a woman to me.

nice guys finish last..? November 28, 2008

Posted by youppe in general, personal, quotes.

This is a tribute to the nice guys. The nice guys that finish last, that never become more than friends, that endure hours of whining and bitching about what assholes guys are, while disproving the very point.

This is dedicated to those guys who always provide a shoulder to lean on but restrain themselves to tentative hugs, those guys who hold open doors and give reassuring pats on the back and sit patiently outside the changing room at department stores.

This is in honor of the guys that obligingly reiterate how cute/beautiful/smart/funny/sexy their female friends are at the appropriate moment, because they know most girls need that litany of support.

This is in honor of the guys with open minds, with laid-back attitudes, with honest concern. This is in honor of the guys who respect a girl’s every facet, from her privacy to her theology to her clothing style.

This is for the guys who escort their drunk female friends back from parties and never take advantage once they’re at her door. For the guys who know a girl is fishing for compliments but give them out anyway. For the guys who always play by the rules in a game where the rules favor cheaters.

For the guys who are accredited as boyfriend material but somehow don’t end up being boyfriends. For all the nice guys who are overlooked, underestimated, and unappreciated. For all the nice guys who are manipulated, misled, and unjustly abandoned, this is for you.

This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree you’d ever orchestrated in GTA3 to rant about a rumor that romantically linked her and the guy she thinks is the most repulsive person in the world. And even though you thought it was immature and you had nothing against the guy, you paused the game for two hours and helped her concoct a counter-rumor to spread around the floor.

This is also for that time she didn’t have a date, so after numerous vows that there was nothing “serious” between the two of you, she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody, the beer was awful, and she flirted shamelessly with you, justifying each fit of reckless teasing by announcing to everyone: “oh, but we’re just friends!” And even though you were invited purely as a symbolic warm body for her ego, you went anyways. Because you’re nice like that.

The nice guys don’t often get credit where credit is due. And perhaps more disturbing, the nice guys don’t seem to get laid as often as they should. And I wish I could logically explain this trend, but I can’t. From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace, the only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical, manipulative bitches.

Many of them claim they just want to date a nice guy, but when presented with such a specimen, they say irrational, confusing things such as “oh, he’s too nice to date” or “he would be a good boyfriend but he’s not for me” or “he already puts up with so much from me, I couldn’t possibly ask him out!” or the most frustrating of all: “no, it would ruin our friendship.” Yet, they continue to lament the lack of datable men in the world, and they expect their too-nice-to-date male friends to sympathize and apologize for the men that are jerks.

Sorry, guys, girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom. I can’t figure out why the connection breaks down between what they say (I want a nice guy!) and what they do (I’m going to sleep with this complete ass now!). But one thing I can do, is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomenon doesn’t last forever.

There are definitely many girls who grow out of that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice guys, not taking them for granted. The tricky part is finding those girls, and even trickier, finding the ones that are single.

So, until those girls are found, I propose a toast to all the nice guys. You know who you are, and I know you’re sick of hearing yourself described as ubiquitously nice. But the truth of the matter is, the world needs your patience in the department store, your holding open of doors, your party escorting services, your propensity to be a sucker for a pretty smile.

For all the crazy, inane, absurd things you tolerate, for all the situations where you are the faceless, nameless hero, my accolades, my acknowledgement, and my gratitude go out to you. You do have credibility in this society, and your well deserved vindication is coming.

you’re a few years overdue
i spent them waiting here for you
now your charity’s refused
i can name a penance for abuse

DO HOPE I WON’T
LEARN TO MAKE
THE SAME MISTAKES
THAT YOU WOULD
MAKE ME AWARE
THAT ONLY FEAR
MY ONLY HOPE
IS LETTING GO

went on a limb for you
capsized when I turned twenty two
did it burn as bad for you?
no bottle serves to soothe my wounds

DO HOPE I WON’T
LEARN TO MAKE
THE SAME MISTAKES
THAT YOU WOULD
MAKE ME AWARE
THAT ONLY FEAR
MY ONLY HOPE
IS LETTING GO

you’re a few years overdue

of my sodomized nation, SEPI & cinta July 9, 2008

Posted by youppe in personal, politics, quotes.

well.. some of my regular readers (errr… can i use that term, because i don’t update this blog that regularly.. hehe) asked me when will i write my ten cents’ worth on the ongoing soap opera between Najib Razak and Anwar Ibrahim. my answer to that is… wake me up when everything’s over and the dust have settled and we know who wins in the end. then maybe i’ll write an interesting piece, or maybe not if the winner is Najib, ahaha (why? you kidding me? i wanna get married and die of old age, please!)

but anyway, i think the only one being sodomized in all this mess.. is the rakyat. yeah, that pain in your ass, is because you are currently being sodomized. not all fun, ain’t it? when the first SD from Raja Petra came out, it was shocking. when a 60-year-old grandpa with a back problem was accused of meliwating a tall, supposedly strong 23-years-old young man, it got interesting. but then all that happened afterwards was just plain sad and pathetic, and it really showed the realities of the current sorry state of our sodomized nation. everything is politicized, now even the Syariah Court has been dragged into this. sumpah dengan Quran… you think we’re in high school?? that’d be enough? it never crossed your mind that both parties would just do it without even flinching?? but then when the general perception towards our civil institutions and even the ulama was at all-time low (barring perhaps during the certain points in Mahathir’s 22 years tenure) it’s hard to fathom how the truth could ever come out. and i don’t think that the truth will ever come out from this one. what will come out is just the guy with the bigger hand, with some aces left in his sleeves.  when it is already a general public opinion that we can’t trust our police, our judiciary, our legislative head and even our ulama’, i can’t imagine a worst picture i can paint about the current disastrous state our country is in. and it does get kinda scary sometimes. it’s oblivious who’s sodomizing who, when both of them are actually sodomizing the nation. sodom me lah!!!!

so who’s gonna win?

.

.

my bet’s on Khairy.

————————————————–

on another totally different note…

i think SEPI was superb. i have a hard time believing a local production house can produce such a movie. it was world class… the script, the acting, the songs, the scenes, etc everything. from basically the same team that made CINTA (Kabir Bhatia is genius!!), this one’s better and deeper. much deeper. words are kept right where it hurts the most, and in Malay (how about that?)… and boy what about the storyboard? and the SEPI puisi, it was excellent.

for those of you who haven’t watch it, please do. because a movie of this quality deserves all the recognition you can give, triple over the recognition you can give to the likes of Cicakman, Nana Tanjung (wtf??), Anak Mami and any other thing he called ‘movie’ that Mohaideen fella throws out.

a sign of better days to come? Malaysian film industry will at last be saved? hmmm…. (i’ll certainly produce a movie one day…)

.

*the movie’s attempted potrayal of Kahlil Gibran was beautiful. he’s one of my all-time favourite writer and poet, his words are one of a kind.

“.. it is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding ..”

“.. out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars ..”

“.. the deeper sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain ..”

“.. the optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose ..”

“.. to understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do ..”

“.. i have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers ..”

– Kahlil Gibran, 1883 -1931

————————————————

i think…

i’m just as far in as i’ll ever be out.

she feels so close now, yet she’s so far away. oh she’s far away.

i know she’s so far away.

yet, sometimes i feel…

like i smelled her in the winds lately.

her scent, one i cannot forget, was in the air.

.

pardon me…

i’m just waiting for my real life to begin.

of coincidence, reasons & hope June 28, 2008

“.. my colleague said something true last semester. he said if you want to get to know someone, you need a buffer. and he meant buffer as in someone who you mutually know .. “

– quoted from http://xxeemm.blogspot.com/

———————————————

coincidence?

i’ve wrote something about ‘coincidence’ in my previous blog, but i’ll lay it out here once again just for the sake of it. i don’t believe in coincidence. coincidence doesn’t exist. because everything happens for a reason. it’s the most obvious LAW OF THE UNIVERSE. the day, the night, the four seasons, the sun, to the tiniest bacteria, all serve a purpose in this world. and if you really dig deeper, you’ll find that everything happens for a reason in both ways; either scientifically or in religion. coincidence is just a concept – a man-made concept – by men who can’t handle the truth and chose to be in denial. it is a convenient concept, for you can easily dismiss something that struck you deep in the heart as a “nothing”, but an unintelligent one. a thinking man who embraces God’s way of doing things would be up on his feet trying to figure out what it means. and that’s the trick. everything happens for a reason, but from all of the probable reasons that we could think of, only God knows which one is the right one. and there’s also the reasons which are beyond the capability of our mind, only God knows it.

so… just coincidence?

you think so?

.

well, if you ask me… it’s unthinkable. the thing that is currently happening, it could never even crossed my mind. but it’s happening, and it’s happening fast. i could just dismiss it and be in denial, but i am not like that. things like these, weird/peculiar/strange things like these, it’s so close to your heart and struck you deep, and you knew right on that it happened for a reason. but the reason for this, i haven’t got a clue.. yet. a friend said, if God’s the one who will this to happen, then it should be for something positive. maybe it’s time for me and her to patch things up, to forgive and let go of our grudges, to joke about those silly/immature/childish things we did to each other back then when we were still silly/immature/childish, and to amend our friendship. it has been years since she said a word to me, it seems like forever when we last talked as friends. she’s the one friend i don’t want to lose for my life, but i did. she means the world to me back then, and now, you know what has changed about that?

nothing.

.

.

ps.. yes, she is her.

psss.. ‘just-when-i-thought-i-was-out, they-dragged-me-back-in’ moment?

pssss.. remember to stop and think for a while, the next time you want to say “… ah, kebetulan je!!”

psssss.. for the first time in history, Spain is gonna win a major tournament tomorrow. viva espana!!!
