Kembali ke Alam Ghaib

Dan selepas beberapa bulan...

Aku bukak MySpace. Pergh pening sial! Ape bende la yang dorang nak buat ni. The original one is way better. Classic.

Dan selepas bukak MySpace...

Aku stalk page abang Rom, stalk ROTTW. Pergh playlist dier dah tak autoplay dowh! Dah tak annoying macam dulu.

Dan lepas stalk page ROTTW...

Aku nampak event baru. Pergh dah dekat nak Soundstage 2010 laa... Macam baru je semalam Soundstage 2009 kat Melaka tuh. Dah la open stage dekat Muzium Telekom. Memori beb venue tu.

Dan lepas komen kat event tu...

Aku nampak cover latest ROTTW. Rancid beb! Tim Armstrong tu jadi cover! Tulang belakang punk culture tuh! Terus aku komen suruh beliau buat international shipping. haha

Just found out, They Will Kill Us All dah buat lagu baru. Lepas dah lama menyepi, rupa rupa dorang tengah sibuk merakam lagu. Here's a teaser. Full song sila cari kat website dorang.


Pergh. Teringat, and I'm missing muzik Malaysia lah. Dah lame giler tak tulis review or pre-review pasal muzik nih. Link kat bawah ni bout my previous reviews, yang lain sila cari sendiri.

Dah lama tak follow, giler rindu. Try nak follow lagi pun dah blur. Tapi so far still acceptable lagi. Ape ek nak di updatekan, em, Bittersweet dah kuar a couple of songs, TWKUA yg macam kat atas tu, gig-gig metal ngan deathcore, macam biase, makin laju naik, nak nak kat kuantan. Graph dorang naik je, tak turun turun lagi. MITC? Terus meriah. Tak pernah kosong venue tu, as I'm browsing the flyers. One Cafe? Cam bese la. Every weekend pun ade gig. Oh, Couple, abang Aidil kite nak bubar band. Eh, xde la, main main je. Terus aktif bermain di gig-gig sekitar KL, di prom night sekolah-sekolah, majlis2 IPT dan kenduri kawin (kidding again!). Nothing much bout them. Ska jap. Skudap Skudip! Woi ape citer band Shah Alam kite? haha rindu ko Dodd. Serius. Rindu lawak lawak kimak ko. Dengar cter dorang ni pun mmg dah agak lame hilang. 2-3 bulan tak main gig tu kire lame gak ah kan bro? haha. Oh fuck! The Times nak buat EP baru. Deymm better be good la Naza. Lama kitorang tunggu nih. Aku dengar preview kt page korang, not bad. Still the same old, classic, The Times's sound. Still the best. Erk..malas dah nak tulis. Malas gak nak follow. Mane kuar kat page aku yang tu ah aku dengar.

Teringin sial nak tulis review lagi. Nice, mood muzik dah on balik.

Weh, malam ni SHOUT! Awards kat Malaysia. Nice giler.

Man, if I were there. Mas Asyraf, Kamal Bukhari SXE, korang tunggu. Later head banging lagi okeh!

When the Rebels Go Marching In

When the Rebels Go Marching In

It was a quiet, breezy Saturday afternoon when a massive traffic jam happened in the heart of our capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I was on my way back to my school from a tiring four hours bus ride right from my hometown. As a 16 years-old student who didn’t have much concern but for his responsibility to study, I get on the city train and head on to my school. If I have read the news yesterday, I might be aware of the chaos and massacre that will happen shortly.

On the flyover train, I sat by the window and glanced downward into the street. There were fewer cars than usual, but today is Sunday. Where everybody had gone? As the train passed over the building of the Royal Palace, I saw that the street was closed and there were a number of police officers, standing tall and ready, armed with a MP5 machine gun and a gas mask put on. My heart starts to wonder, what will happen now? What is happening right now? I looked around to the other passenger of the train, and they all looked scared. A couple of little kids were crying hard, while their mother tried to calm them down. From a few blocks away, I can see a number of groups of people are gathering near the street, not far below, marching on as they shouted and raising their banners of a new reformation.



I was only a typical high school student who doesn’t really care about politics back then, but the event sure taught me a lot of things. As the train approaches the next station, Jalan Sultan Ismail Station, it went faster and I’m not expecting it to stop at the speed. Seconds later, the conductor announced that the train will not be stopping at the station. As we go through the station, I looked out the window. The sight out there killed my unconcerned-perception on politics and my country. The sight that I’ve seen is only on the World News, and now I see it with my own head, in my country. Was not so intriguing when it’s in your own country isn’t it?



Outside the station, there was smoke everywhere. People of all walks of life, of all sorts of ages, are running here and there closing their mouth with some piece of clothes. Some of them were chasing the train as we passed by; trying to grab the door hoping it will stop. Their eyes were all red, a woman and her children were kneeling on the ground right beside the station’s platform, closing her mouth while trying to ease her children who were scared. You must be wondering what has happened, and I’m sure you won’t like it too.



It was not a terrorist attack, but it was just an extreme anti-government protest going on the streets. I learned this when I go off the street and saw the thousands of angry protester were walking down the street as they march to the National Palace, where they were planning to hand a memorandum to the King. Filled with curiosity, I walked towards them, following them from a few blocks behind. Shouting “Reformation now!”, they started to scare all the shop owners around the street, and they forced the street owner to close down their business for that day. The crowd of thousands of people had been given several warning by the Malaysia’s FRU (Federal Reserve Unit) and the police, but they still continued to make a chaos on the main street of our capitals. Foods and things got stolen, old man got mugged, windows get broken and ladies been harassed. I’ve seen it all happened with my own eyes.



Independence is not how we define it, because it defines itself. A chaotic and unlawful protest out on the street is just not our way of doing things, it is not a symbol of democracy, it a symbol of rude denial. I was only a teenage kid back there, and I’m sure that event will have a big effect on my life. As our former Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had mentioned, “This is stupid. It is not our way to do things. It is not Malaysian’s way.”

Dari Lebuhraya ke Udara: Sani Ekspress

Terjumpa texture yang menarik ni kat simviation.com, waktu bosan2 malam Sabtu. Mula-mula at first baca title texture ni, macam tak percaya. Tapi bila dah bukak, dah download, memang betul. Sani Ekspress dah jadi syarikat penerbangan.

Sani Ekspress dah berevolusi dari bas dua tingkat kepada pesawat penumpang komersial Airbus A330-300.



di Juliana International Airport (kalau tak silap)
Dalam approach pattern untuk mendarat
final approach sebelum touchdown

Interesting kan?

Jangan kemalangan lagi dah la.. Well hopefully not :)
Fact: On 15 March 2000, a 6-year-old Malaysia Airlines A330-300 aircraft was severely damaged by corrosive liquids that were being transported in the cargo hold on a passenger flight from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur.

History
The A330-300 is the biggest member of Airbus' twinjet family and is closely related to the four engined long range A340 with which it shares near identical systems, airframe, flightdeck and wings, the only major difference being the twin (versus four) engine configuration.
The A340 and A330 were launched simultaneously in June 1987. Although developed in parallel the A330-300 made its first flight after the A340, on November 2 1992. It was the first aircraft to achieve simultaneous European Joint Airworthiness Authorities (JAA) and US FAA certification, on October 21 1993. Entry into service took place by the end of that year.
Differences from the A340 aside from the number of engines are slight changes to the wing and internal systems, including fuel tankage. The A330 (like the A340) takes advantage of a number of technologies first pioneered on the A320, including the common advanced EFIS flightdeck with side stick controllers and flybywire computerised flight control system.
While the standard A330-300 shares the same fuselage length as the A340-300, Airbus has studied various stretched (A330-400) and shortened (A330-100 and 200) versions. The shortened A330-200 was formally launched in 1996 as a long range 767-300ER competitor, and is described separately. One stretched, high capacity concept studied for a time featured lower deck seating in place of the forward freight hold.

Living Life; the American Way

This is a post about patriotism and nationalism.

"Fucking Asians!"

"Malaysia; an Islamic country famous for one of its leader who were convicted with sodomy."

We are not here only to study; we're here for soft-skill building. And one of it comes back to how you valued the place you were born. We're not here to go to classes, do assignment and pass exams with moderately excellent grades. We're here to learn to do things all by ourselves, boost our confidence and most importantly, take lessons from this first-world country to bring back to Malaysia and improve our own beloved nation.

Being in the United States, we should not ignored our nation's politics, (yeah I can say, if you're ignorant of those issues even when you're in Malaysia, why should you be nosing around about them once you're out of the country?). Put some confidence in the nations leadership, because you guys, (especially those who were sponsored by the PSD) will be coming home one day, and serve the nation. I prefer to say that we will serve the nation, serve the country, and not the government. That is my way of thinking. Berkhidmat untuk negara, bukan untuk kerajaan. Whoever ruled is not important, what's important is how you served the nation, what have you done for it so far, and how patriotic you are. Stop condemning the leaders when you don't know anything about leading a nation.


So my point here is not about politics, but what I have learned so far from my experience here in a foreign land. Am I Americanized? Have I forgot the culture of my own country? Have I been indulged in so much freedom and pleasures that I have forgotten about where I come from?

First lets talk about the culture. I'm sitting in a Law Building campus, eating M&M and wearing a fluffy coat with a bunch of Americans all around me. I eat bread with some cereals this morning. Am I Americanized enough? No I'm not. Soon I'll be wearing a boot with leather jacket, a Bose headphone and sunglasses, a Converse shoe and a scarf around my neck. Well lets just hope I'm talking shits right now.

Last Friday, I wore a baju Melayu to classes. Talking about attire, I'd like to quote from my ESL lecturer, Beth; "Americans are stupid. That's why we sometimes see some students go to class in their pajamas." You sure got it all right Beth, that's something we would never do back in our country. Sometimes, you shouldn't have to think too much for how the way you look. I imagined myself somewhere in the near future, I will be driving a half-million Audi A5 Coupe in my sarong and a kopiah on my head to the surau. That's how you should look, however you love yourself.


Courtesy. Americans are far more courteous (as I see it now, so far) than we Malaysians. They're far more friendly too. What did we called our country? A melting pot? Rojak? Well the States is far more than a melting pot to me, especially when you are studying at a university where almost half of it's students are international students. We did speak accented English, but still, it is English and everybody can understand it. Put a note on your mind to put away all our differences and lets work as one, for Malaysia. Comes to my lab partners, Alex Liang and Nicholas LaMarco. Both of them were American citizens, however Alex, originated from China. How courteous are they? Well that depends on how you define courtesy for an American citizen who you met just once a week in your Physics laboratory session. Alex is from New York city, yes, he's a big city boy, and Nick is just from around Buffalo. They were both older than me, but we worked together pretty well.

The problem when you were in an enormous college like UB, you will not be able to came across the same people for times. Everyday, there's always a new face you will meet by the Promenade, by the Sidewalk, at the couch on the 3rd floor of Capen Hall, where I always slept in emergency times, and everywhere on campus. Oh man, how I hate the library here. Too many libraries, and each library is so big you can even get lost in it (if you're coming for the first time, of course).

Guess what, the weather's getting awful. It can get to -5 degree Celcius on a chilly and breezy night,and I hate it the most when it's raining. It funny though, because I used to love the rain so much back in Malaysia. Fuck it. I guess it's true when they say that the winter in Buffalo is murder.

Hey, finally, I'm happy again with my life. Moving on is not an option, but it is a gift that I have just received. No, not gay and won't ever be gay no more. Don't get me wrong, I not even gay after all this while. I don't mind if they were making up again with their ex, or getting engaged and married next year, or whatsoever. This is my life and I should not bother looking to the past and be saddened again. Oh my, how hard it is explaining how you feel about things.

Define happiness. It's not the way you see it from others, it is the way you feel about it. Lets get free.


One day, I'll get back to where I belong all this time, Malaysia. I'll be together again with my family, my friends and love whose awaits. I can't wait for that day to come, but I'm sure it finally will.

Conclusion: Be yourself. Love your country, no matter where you are. Lets be a small-deaf frog. Lets make it to the top. Lets make our country proud. Lets make all the hard works counts.

With big scholarship, comes big responsibilty.

Salam alaik~
