Adamu.. Hadirmu.. Jantungku

This is one of my effort to make me believe that I do have a heart... and feelings. I was once capable of loving and being in love...

Dengan lafaz Bismillah
Langkah mula di atur
Dengan kalimat itu
Entah bila... bagaimana

Kita tidak sedarah
Darahmu, darahku berbeza
Oksigen memisahkan kita

laluan kita searah
Terus tidak berpaling
Injapmu membuka keyakinanku,
menutup keraguanku

tiada lub-dubku
Walau paling kecil
pentingnya dirimu
Kaulah nyawaku

Di sini kita tetap bertemu
Di persimpangan ini

The Meet Cute

I've always been fascinated with the story of how 2 people meet. Even in movies, I always look forward to the 'Meet Cute' part, a part where the hero will meet the heroin for the first time. I like to know the things like how they come to know each other?.. What are their feelings at the time of first meet?. Do they experience the 'love at the first sight'? or is it just an attraction?

I would say that, my parents had a unique 'Meet Cute' moment. They had known each other a few years before their first meet. My father was studying at MRC at the time. I was told that, it was required by the senior that everyone must have a girl picture stick in their locker . You know back then, ragging can be pretty tough. Mom told me that someone had told her that my father was once badly injured by his seniors. I don't really know what he did that had caused that, but I got the picture of how bad the senior 'bullying' can be at the time. So, I understand, if senior had asked to do 'A', so, by hook or by crook, you have to do 'A'.

My father don't have any girlfriend at the time. But, his best friend has. So, his best friend suggested that, while he'll be asking his girlfriend to post her picture over, he'll ask his girlfriend to send a picture of her friend too, for my father. Just so happen that the girlfriend is mom's best friend. So, as you all can guess.. A pic of mom had also travelled all the way from Kuala Kangsar to Sg. Besi. Yes! My father finally got the girl picture stick in his locker as directed by the senior. Very little that he knows, the girl in the picture will be his future wife. What a fate eh?

I come to know that they become acquainted after that. Due to the distance between them, they only communicated via mails. Obviuosly, no mobile, no e-mail and definitely no facebook/twitter. But they managed to be friends. I never asked, what kind of things they usually write to each other. And my parents never really reveal this part of details to us (my brother and I). So, I guess, this is one of those things that they just want to keep it as confidential matter.. hihihi..

They've been mail-buddy for quite sometime because, they only meet for the first time when my father is already in the army. If I remember this correctly, he was stationed in Kluang, Johor. He had some kind of training or something in Taiping, which bring him to the state of Perak. He rides his scrambler motorcycle from Kluang to Taiping together with a friend. I repeat.. ride!!! After the whatever-business-he-had-in Taiping ended, my father's friend invited him to go ride with him to Sg Siput to meet somebody, who I don't remember who. Perhaps his family.

So, while riding south to Sg Siput, he came to a junction where one directed to Sg Siput and one directed to KUALA KANGSAR. Out of sudden, he thought of mom. What he said next, was really the turning point of the story.

Ishak: Eh, aku ade kawanla kat Kuala Kangsar. Aku ingat aku tak jadi ikut kau pegi Sg. Siput.

The friend is OK with that, and they both continue the journey in separate ways. My father reached Kuala Kangsar not long after. From the letters he always wrote to mom, he knows what is the name of the kampung he should head to. The only problem is that, he don't know where and how to find the exact house. Luckily, there's a small grocery shop at the village So, he decided to stop there and ask. Tauke kedai runcit must know everybody, he thought.

Yes! He did know everybody. In fact, the owner knows mom personally too. So. he himself, helped my father to give directions to mom's house. I can't recall if my father ever told me his feeling at the time. Anxious? Nervous? Excited? But I'm sure he is very brave of doing this. Never have met mom at all. And there he was, riding his scrambler to mom's house. When arrived, he did not only meet my mum for the first time, but he met Opah too. When asked about, what he thought of mom when they first met, he said, mom looks smaller than he thought. I was like.. that's it? But that's all he's willing to share. huhuhu...

Even without the exact details of everything, I always consider their 'Meet Day' as the best story ever! This, I think had put a very high standard to my mum and I on how I would meet 'My Guy' and how 'The Guy' should treat me. My father was very gentlemen and respectful in his way. From the first meet and later meets that follows, he always come to mom's house first, ask permission from Opah to take mom's out and so on. And this perhaps had put an expectation to me, that someone I date should be at least very respectful, if not very gentlemen-ly. I may have had my 'Meet Cute'(s). One perhaps belong to my 'jodoh' Or, I may yet to experience greater 'Meet Cute'(s) in the future. hmmm...

Life without My-Vince

Wow! I actually had lived without a car for more than 3 months!! The only car available at home is a manual car which I'm so suck at driving it, which make, my mum and the rest of house members as my official driver.

Throughout this period.. I enjoy not paying for car loans. I enjoy not have to be the only person that mum has to depend on to do anything or to go anywhere. I like it that I contribute less to air pollution. I like it that I save so much of not spending on petrol. I like it (sometimes) that I go to Carrefour or Wangsa Walk or Rampai LRT station walking.

But... there are also a couple of things that I do not like...

I hate taking public transport. OK, I seldom go to office. But instead of usual 30 mins drive from home to 1Utama, it actually took me 2 hours to 1Utama by public transport. It not even cost savings (perhaps, just slightly) and definitely not time savings! I hate waiting and wasting time. That's why I don't like to go to office. Even with driving, I can lost at least 30 mins where that 30 mins, I can perhaps finish 1 or 2 budget report or even better, an extra sleeping time. hahaha..

I hate depending on people too. I'm so used to of doing anything or going anywhere by myself. So, it is tiring that you need other people to help you to go somewhere. Not everybody or everytime, people are free and available for you. I always feel bad if I need to bother anybody or being such a hassle although the person may be sincerely and willingly helpful. Maybe I should not have to feel so bad. But hey, it's just an imah-desease kind of thing. I just can't help it.

I hate to make decisions. It's easy if you like a certain car and money is never a problem. No point of liking this 1 car but you can't even afford the monthly payment. I was going through so many doubts and second thoughts on what my second car would be. The situation is like I just get a divorced and now I'm searching for my second husband. Obviously I want my second husband to be better than the last one. And this time, I need to make sure that I got the 'blessing' from my whole family in hope this time it can last longer. Uuurgh! I just hate deciding and it was so hard to make up my mind.

Thank God. All that is already in the past. Thanks to Him, for helping me to get through the period without my dear 'Vince' and help to guide me through making the decision. I know I would be lost without You.

p/s: I still missed my 'Vince'.

Oh No! Not me please...

I don't mind be friend with a married man. I have friends who are. While some, I have their wife as my friend as well, but there are also some that I do not. Whether I know their wife or not or their wife know me or not, I know my limit as a friend and respect their marital status. As far as I know myself, I do not have any feelings to any of my married friends. Of course I do have a lil' bit of interest to 1 or 2 of them before, but the feeling did not continue once they have officially 'owned' by other women.

I do have an issue however, if the friend would like to take an advantage of our friendship and trying to get 'itchy'. If they are a true friend, and really know me, they would never ever trying to make a move on me or even thinking about it. I knowla I'm 'andartu'. But, pleasela don't let that give you an idea that I can consider anybody and entertain your 'itchiness'. It's not that I'm against poligamy. If it was written in my fate that my 'jodoh' is with a married man, then I do need to accept that. Dah jodoh kan? But I know that the decision will come if and only if the situation is right and it is for the good and happiness for all parties and not my own.

I can't predict the future. And I don't know where my heart will 'fall' and all. But I do appreciate the co-operations of all my married friends or any other married man out there (who might read this) that if you are looking for a new 'branch' please please and please..try your best to look at other area and not mine.

Ada Apa Dengan Cinta

Terjumpa this 1 piece of paper in 1 of my old CD. I thought it was the lyrics print - Most international CD album do not include the lyrics of the songs rite. So, I will usually print of the lyrics myself, and put it inside the CD.. hihihi.. But it was something else - a short poem, I wrote a couple years ago for my self-made Valentine cards and wishes. While reading it, I was like..did I wrote this? hahahah..

Dalam rumah ada bilik..
Dalam bilik ada almari
Dalam almari ada baju
Dalam baju ada tubuh
Dalam tubuh ada hati
Dalam hati ada cinta
Dalam cinta.. ada segalanya..

Ultimate Love Song

Last year I did the Top 10 favorite romantic/love movie. So this year, I'm doing the list for my favorite love songs of all time. This is definitely very hard because there are thousands of wonderful love songs out there. But through time these songs had meant a lot to me

Girlfriend - N'Sync feat Nelly
"Would you be my girlfriend?"

I do not have so many experiences falling in love or have a special someone I can called 'my boyfriend'. This song was a hit when I have one. We danced to this song while he lip-sync the chorus to me. He was lucky that the DJ decided to play the song that night. If not, he probably, need to postpone the question to other night then. hahaha.

p/s: If JC or JT ever asked me that question.. I will definitely say "hell, yeah".. (sambil terlompat2 dgn gedixnyer)

I want to spend the my lifetime loving you - Marc Anthony & Tina Arera

Most duet songs are revolve around the theme of love. There's a lot of very memorable duet songs like One Sweet Day, Endless Love, My Heart, Senja Nan Merah, Ceritera Cinta, Cinta etc etc that I can list on, but I decided to choose this 1 in my list instead :)

For the rest of my life - Maher Zain
OK. I'm one of those who also 'infected' with the Maher Zain phenomenon :)

Tanpa Kekasihku - Agnes Monica
This is one sad love song. Obviously, there are times in our life that we lost somebody dearest in our heart. Below are a few lines of the songs that I like and really touch my heart..

"Kubiarkan senyumku, menari diudara.. Biar semua tahu, kematian tak mengakhiri... cinta..."

"Di mana letak syurga itu..Biar kugantikan tempatmu denganku..Adakah tanda syurga itu..Biar kutemukan untuk bersamamu"

Until the end of time - Innuendo
This is one of the most romantic wedding-theme song coming from a Malaysian artist. I would definitely will feature this song in my wedding (when it happens 1 day..)

"And I give my heart and soul, I give it all to you.. to you..All my hopes and dreams are in this wedding ring..I love you.. until the end of time"
p/s: I love Innuendo!!! Had huge crush on Reymee. Big time!

My All - Mariah Carey

My ultimate favorite song. It's not really related to me or my love life. Perhaps, because I love this song so much, I used to sing this song to my exes on the phone at night..hahaha.. The memory really bring smile to my face now..
p/s: Poyo-nyer I...

Sesungguhnya - Raihan
I believe that the greatest love of all is the love to the Allah. And, to feel that we are loved by the Him. And, we are blessed by Him.

"Tuhan hadiahkanlah kasih Mu kepadaku..Tuhan kurniakanlah rinduku kepada Mu..Moga ku tahu..Syukur ku hanyalah milik Mu"

Kau Kekasihku - Siti Nurhaliza
"Dari mata..Dari jiwa yang berahi..Kini kumengerti istilah percintaan ini..Moga nanti ada seru menyatakan..kau kekasihku hingga ke akhirnya.."

"From my eyes.. From my passionate soul.. I've understand the meaning of this love..Perhaps they will be time.. a sign to say.. you're mine..until the end of time"

I had a number of disappointment and heartbreak in love. I have used that part of the lyrics of this songs in several occasions, as my "last-ever-love-note-I-will-ever-send-to-you". You can note that I even have 2 versions of it to cater different audiences. hahahah..

Hello - Lionel Ritchie/David Cook
"Hello? Is it me you're looking for?"

I think, I have this questions on my mind so many time. I'm such a fool when it comes to love, flirt, sign language etc etc. The lyrics of this song mentioned about "tell me how to win you heart.. coz I haven't got a clue". And yes, most of the time, I really don't have a clue. And because of that, I lost quite a few of someones whom I like because I have not acted very well in this pre-love mind games. Well, perhaps it's not really meant to be rite?

p/s: I love David Cook's version...

I Love You - Celine Dion
I have to pick this Celine Dion song! Period! :D
Plus, I do believe in the power of these 3 words.
