Love hurts sometimes... if you do it right...

okay, i've been trying to update so many times throughout the week but every time i try, i either get home late and too tired to start typing... OR i go out jamming and by the time i get back, it's too late coz i need to start sleeping before 12am since i work on morning shifts everyday including weekends 7-7. the only off i get is Sunday. and today, when i wanted to update my blog, i was occupied cleaning up my room, which took me quite a while, since.. i think the last time i tidied my room it was like in July or August! so imagine the dust. yeech. and when i was done, was changing new strings on my guitar, tuned it up, played a bit, and tup2, i decided to go jog since i didnt go swimming in the morning. then at nite, gi jamming around 8. but since i told myself i have to update once this week. i'm gonna!

okay... it's been 1 minute... and completely forgot what i've been meaning to write. had a lot of ideas. okay2... so i said i was gonna write a note. but i keep forgetting!! haaaa... okay... here goes.

(this is a REALLY Long entry as it turns out. took me 2 hours to finish it! Take your time.)

Schizo Friendly?

Okay, so i bet most people right now have seen movies like Beautiful Mind by Russel Crowe, Secret Window starring Johnny Depp, heck even the Machinist starring Christian Bale (of whom which, btw... i just found out... NOT american!). basically the whole movie revolves around a person who has schizophrenia.

For those people who dont know what the hell is Schiz (pronounced skit-zo-fre-nia or skitz for short), it's basically a hallucination, or imagination that someone has of another being that they converse to something like that la.

so basically... it crossed my mind really. you know sometimes, on weekends you'd get lonely and stuff. or well anytime la. you'd either be home alone, or with company that you dont really enjoy. but i wonder... do people who has schiz ever get lonely? it seems that they probably have someone to talk to most of the time! if the person is a powerful schiz, like level gandalf ke aper, you could probably create so many company in around you. probably a hot hot HOT lady from Victoria Secret or that cover for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and has this sexy voice (u know ladies, the one that you guys do when you guys sound tired and shit... yes... that one... dont act like you dont know... it is such a turn on for guys. try ordering Thosai at a mamak stall and see how they react), then probably have a talking hawk! uuuu talking hawk! i think that's damn cool. and the hawk probably has a deep black guy's voice. maybe like James Earl Jones' (alaaa the guy who does the voice for Darth Vader... yes.. the voice owner is a black guy, to those who are really ignorant, not some old white guy at the end of Star Wars:Return Of the Jedi). then to top it off, probably have a hobbit with thick scottish accent. now can Schiz be lonely???

Is US economy Fucked?

Those who read the news, you basically know that currently the US is facing a bad economic downturn. some analysts even say that it could be as bad as the Great Depression period sometime before World War II if i'm not mistaken.

Everything there has gone expensive, and risky to buy, especially in the real estate business. what happened? well please anyone out there... correct me if i'm wrong okay, i'm just starting to get really friendly with this game. Basically before 2007, banks have been giving out housing loans with a fairly cheap price, especially to people who cant actually afford it just so they can sell the house. around the early 90s onwards everyone thought it was quite secure since if these people who cant afford it cant pay, the bank will basically declare bankruptcy something like that and get still get profit. suddenly this year, someone in the market realized that even if they seized it, they wont get much profit and in fact they'll lose money. plus, they suddenly found out that the real estate costs in US is actually much cheaper than the loan. it's not how they estimated at all. so basically, bank are losing MUCH more money. hence, they pulled back all the loans, no more investments, and shares go down... while prices go up. there you go. please someone, if i'm wrong, correct me.

thank god i'm not in the US anymore, kalau tak, balik mesia, i dont really get to spend a lot. hehe. currency down. or even go to europe. okay, so now, it also makes me wonder... currently buying real estates here in Malaysia is also a fad. yes you make profit they say when you buy properties. prices go up even after a year. but is it just part of the gossip, in attempt to make the property market analysts make more money?

A big chunk of how the world economy goes up and down, i think has got a lot to do with the speculation, prediction, whatever by the Market Analyst, Traders, bla bla bla, hence, prices keep going up. maybe yes, it should go up, but not as high as it should be, i think. these group of people could actually have the aim to take over the world's economy and be rich mofos on the face of the earth!! Last time i read, oil price is at USD98 per barrel. THAT's a LOT! i wonder how is gas per gallon in the states right now. i think last time i was there, it was close to 4 dollars per gallon kot. craaaaazy.

if anyone's out there who'd love to invest... i think india and china are the best country to invest in with their current growth and booming market. problem bout india though, corruption's probably bad. so be careful. i think it fluctuates. and as fast as it grows, i bet it's still unstable, and are just trying to buy as much stuff as they can. i dont know if they can actually cope.

wow... i've never wrote something like that EVER. hahahahaha.

Relationships... same ol same ol....

okay... so i think i wrote about this so many times. but somehow, it's a conversation that never gets people bored. it's gossip-ish. it's something that everyone relates to. it's drama.

so yes... most of those who know me... as of September last year... my life has been almost drama free. there was a bit a long the way, but since i wasnt prepared to be in a relationship... it wasnt much drama for me. i keep telling myself... i really hate dramas in relationship. and some people even tease... 'oh come on... fucking dramatic laa', or 'alaaa... drama laaa, i just wanna go out with my friend pun cannot ke?' stuff like that.

yes... i hate drama. BUT really BIG BUT, i think, when you're in a relationship... drama will exist either way. why? because believe it or not... it's something that spices up your relationship... no matter how much. but sometimes to an extent laa. So, i know, either way, there will be a point, when i do have someone again, that i'd have drama again in my life. But so far, my life's been quite Drama Free, No Cholesterol shaite going on. the thing is about having no drama is, when you're friends start asking what's up, the only thing you can talk about is the your routine life! seriously. i mean, some people do have drama, but they dont wanna talk about it, but there's sometimes an urge, and you really do feel it if you have it... u just dont wanna share. which makes them very interesting people still.

When you have 0% drama, Gossips go 0%, and seriously, you start coming up with dramas that probably dont even matter. like...

A: Dude... per citer? takder pompuan baru ke?
B: ntah laa.... hmmmm (thinkin hard). haaa... harituh, aku gi starbucks, pastuh ada sorang pompuan tu... i think she was checkin me out man. she was hot... model-ish. tapi ntah apsal i dont have the balls to approach her.
A: haaa tuh la kau. sayur. lain kali pegi jekkk.
B: eleeh, ko pun sama, macam kau approach jekk pompuan lawa yang harituh. setakat 'Hi' pastuh sengih tak kira okay (at this point of the conversation, the topic has shifted).
A: haaa... tuh la pasal. nanti aaa. kena ada wingman bagus la.
B: haa... tuh la pasal. (yes... repetition of the sentence). Anyway... about the starbucks girl...
A: haa... about her....
B: i'm suddenly not sure if she really did check me out...
A: hmmm.
B: But she was hot man. HOT i tell you!
A: yepp... i bet she was.
B: yepp... she was. (again... repetition)

Btw... this conversation... never actually happens in real life. ehem. so.... anyway....

about relationships kan... here are some short tips about it. you know, like macam, if you were doing something on Microsoft Word, and suddenly the annoying Talking Clip with Eyes has a tip or hints or whatever.

Hint 1: If you like someone... and especially if you see all the pieces coming together... spending time with the person is heavenly, and the person spends so much time with YOU. yes... with their friends as well... but most of the time... they look at YOU... that kinda thing piece. SAY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. If the other person doesnt say it, doesnt mean they dont like you! maybe they're just pussies... maybe they're just nervous, maybe they just really suck. either way, SOMEONE has to say it. so might as well be you rite??? so.... FUCKIN SAY ITT!!!!! 'I like you', or 'i want you', or the ever cheesy line 'i love you' and eyes twinkle2... or blush or whatever. SAY IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTT!!!! (am i more annoying that the Talkin Clip with Eye now or not?)

Hint 2: okay... serious tone. If you break up... you have the very right to cry, look for a shoulder to cry on, or to lean on. that's why your friends are there for you. you might suddenly go MIA on them when you're in a rship, but they're always there for you. that's why they're your friends. they're there when you need them. you have the right to wallow in the sadness... you have the right to miss the person, you have the right to want the person back even though your friends think otherwise. BUT that's how ended rship works. so dont apologize... dont be shy....

Hint 3: If you love the person so much and was in a long term rship, and the person broke up with you... believe it or not... as cheesy as it sounds... time helps. it helps a lot. keeping your distance helps. doesnt mean you shouldnt call the person at all. just less... coz you dont want to get hurt all over again... UNLESS... you feel secured about it... then, i'd say it's good to go.

Hint 4: If you're not ready to be in a relationship... dont gamble and try. you might hurt yourself all over again... and worse, hurt the other person who wanted you so badly. make wise decisions, and think about it. think. take time to think. dont gamble. you'll know when you're ready. you'll know.

why suddenly this topic comes up? well... i do have a number of friends who were going through a bad patch... and i'm only talking from experience. shaits... now that makes me sound fucking old. if you guys have any other hints... to drop them by for others to read.

Weirdest Laws....

I'm not gonna dwell on this topic too long. but basically, i think it's hilarious. and... the coolest thing is... it's true. well I had this list from BBC news. But the next day when i went through it again, they made some editing since they say some of the facts didnt have a very reliable source. but i'm gonna post the first new pre-edited. i think it's just hilarious. Bolds are my favorites....

My stupid adorable cat... Furball the Second....

A complete Raya... everyone didnt plan to wear blue. it just happened. only my dad was wearing purple. but my mom forced him to change and wear his old baju melayu to match us all up. hehehe. poor dad.

weirdest thing i had for Raya... Turtle's Egg/Telur Penyu. Don't get me wrong, i'm totally against it. but it was already there... and the last time i had it... was when i was 12 i think. not more than that. back then, it tasted ok... but now... it's just weird. the yolk, even cooked, looks like your snot. clear though. but still slimy. best eaten with soy sauce. but hell no. not gonna eat it anymore. bleech. Save the Turtles!!!

My adorable nephews and nieces....
This is Amanda....

This is Adam... the whole family been saying that Adam looks almost like me when i was a baby... but ntah. anything pun, if it's true... he's gonna be good lookin la. hahaha. padampampush. Btw, Adam and Amanda are siblings....

This is Erra... a bit kerek... but still pretty. i think she's gonna grow up to be a beautiful lady.

This one in the cap is Alia, behind her is her brother Kiki

I didnt take a lot of pics this raya. i dont know why. but anyway, the very beautiful lady in white is my 27 yr old nephew's gf, ms Shirley... and very beautiful voice as well....

Three young cool ladies i got to know. More Sabah friends!! They make me feel old though. ahah.

Finally... here's Waking Up Faidz... part II

Oh yeah... one more thing... (which means i shouldnt put finally at the video, but it's my blog... so i write it the way i want it kapiche?). to my sweet annoying adorable little sister Nadhrah... you're SPM is tomorrow and... Abang wish you the best. I love you loads... and everything's gonna be okay. take it easy, go in with prayers, and go out with prayers and syukur. The whole family love you loads.... after this you can start driving, and do that culinary thingy you want to. can probably even be in Food Network. hugs n kisses...your Abang.
