Red & Fairytale with Taylor Swift

Just close your eyes, the sun is going down. You'll be alright 

Such a comforting line by Taylor Swift in her song Safe & Sound. If you didn't know, that song is my lullaby whenever i'm worried over tomorrow. Come think of it, this lass from Nashville has been serenading my life.

Whenever I have romantic moments with my partner, my heart will goes Today was a fairytale or be an emo queen by singing Back To December out loud.

So who is going to her concert in KL? Not me. Not that i didn't want to but all the tickets were sold out!! But don't be frown of disappointment coz you stand a chance to win her concert tickets AND make your fairy tale comes true by meeting her in person!!

Thanks to AIA Bhd., the Lead Sponsorship of Taylor Swift’s sold-out concert in Kuala Lumpur on 11 June 2014, as part of The RED Tour presented by Cornetto.

To add to the excitement in the weeks leading up to the concert, AIA Bhd.  launched a contest on its Facebook page to invite participation from Taylor Swift fans interested to win concert tickets and exclusive Taylor Swift merchandise. Based on the theme AIA Real Music Never Stops, participants are invited to share photos and videos that depict what the phrase “Real Music Never Stops” means to them in the most creative way.

Don't let your life pass you by

Were you shocked by the Karpal Singh's tragic passing?

I was because when i was small, my dad told me that there was this very admirable lawyer called Karpal Singh from Penang. Then as i grew up, I learnt so much about this man - an undying fighter and outspoken voice for what was wrong and for what was right for the country.

There's a malay saying that goes 'Harimau Mati Tinggalkan Belang, Manusia Mati Tinggalkan Nama' (Tigers leave its stripes, man is remembered through his deeds) . I guess this tiger of Jelutong is the best person to exemplify this Malay proverb - Malaysia owes so much to you, you'll always be remembered.

It's only like the start of the second quarter of 2014 and we've been listening so many tragic stories along the way. Ain't Earth such a sad place to live in?

I really don't know, maybe I'm still young to learn about life but I know life is meant to be happy but shits happen and unforeseen external circumstances that take your smile away. I'm still young (i mean not that young) but I had been going through a lot of downs - like my family breakdown, failed relationships and all those almost relationships and losing two loved ones in just short span of three months and of course those shits from my work - but this downs are just a tiny particle of life, there is a long long way to go.

 Rain or shine, straight or winding, the road ahead is never easy. But of course, through divine intervention, the road ahead, I'm sure will be clear.

Sometimes i do reflect myself - i've been complaining a lot for what i don't have and i never bother to appreciate or feeling blessed of what I'm having now. I know it's not healthy, but i see what i don't have is like a carrot for me to entice me to go further. Come on, if life is in satisfaction, you will never grow.

Anyhow, it's late for me, so i bid Good Night and of course, RIP Karpal Singh and to his aide, Michael Cornelius.

Love Struck Me Down

You always ask me why I love you.

“No reason” will always be my answer. Coz I always believe that loving a person should not be based on reason; as once the reason is gone, does it mean you don’t love that person anymore?

It’s amazing how you can fall in love with a person you didn't even notice the first time you met them. We started as friend, rapport became best friends and now we’re an item. Sometimes I do wonder have we lost our minds to become like so close. Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but failing in love with you was beyond my control – it’s you, it’s always been you.

Throughout this entire period of our relationship has been amazing for me. I never thought I could call someone that is so caring, annoying and adorable as my baby boo. You know, spending quality time with you at the end of the day after work, it’s like something I could not ask for more. Every day I spend with you, becomes the new best day of my life.

I’m not a romantic person, I can’t buy you a diamond ring, I can’t guarantee you a fortune and I doubt myself sometimes whether I have been giving you the happiness that you deserve.  I’m very sorry. But I want you to know that I love you very much and one fine day, I will wake up in the morning and kiss the love of my life for rest of my life.

Missing you is my new hobby now, caring for you is my job and making you happy is my duty and loving you is my life.

A Change Would Do You Good

Two years ago, i started this blog coz i was pretty emo that time as I had this huge crush on someone but ended up nothing. And two years ago, i had a pretty decent job, a happy one indeed.

Two years gone and now, I'm sorta happily attached and job wise, in a somewhat situation.

I've no idea what my life will be in next two years. To be honest, whenever I find my comfort zone or in a status quo situation, changes will be my enemy. I will like i worked so hard and waited for so long for this moment, why the changes?

I hate changes because i don't want to lose or to jeopardize what i have - you know, i don't want to start all over again or even to end something that i've been enjoying so much.

But contrary, don't look at the word 'change' in a negative connotation - changes could be good sometimes. Change is like a vision that you want to see yourself in the future which eventually motivates you to do whatever it takes to live in the vision.

I don't know the next two years where will it lead me to but by that time i would have settled down. If you are reading this, you should know by now that you will be the one who will talk to me every night until i fall asleep and you will be the one who will wake me up every morning in next two years and next twenty years and until we grow old.

Crumbling Pastries

My baby boo will scroll down my Facebook sometimes to check out those enthralling fags' postings. He was rather puzzled why those postings shared very close similarities.

Oh well, fags live their own fictitious lives in a fag template. Really, i'm not making this up. If you are gay, you just scroll your Facebook up and down - it's either shirtless selfies and gym - they have nothing to do in their lives aside from these two activities. Sometimes, the fag will go to the extreme until they will post a shirtless selfie just to tell the whole damn world that they are going out. I bet the algorithm in Facebook among the fag folks will be just 'gym'. I'm really surprised that they could garnered so many likes just posting shirtless selfies. Attention seeker? I can't comment much. Let me post a shirtless selfies and see how many likes i could get in return.

I'm not being a homophobic here just that feeling frustrated sometimes (or maybe i'm just being plain shallow or maybe i should be more open) that those fags are representing the gay community which i'm part of it. I always have this vision that my community is a smart one, august and stands out so much above the straight men but it doesn't go that as it seems. In fact, a bunch of attention seekers and bimbos.

No wonder it is pretty hard to find another half out there since everyone is created in a same template - there's not much varieties out there.

Talking about another significant another half, i promise myself that i would settle down by the age of 30. Well, the years are numbered - i should really plan the steps ahead of us before the solid foundation is laid upon ( i hope he's the one).

Sadly gay marriage is not permissible here in Malaysia so i guess cohabitation is the way for me and for us to settle down. However, every wedding i attended, i always wish that i was the one to walk down the aisle and i always wish that i was the one on the stage to give the grand toast. I wish that people who are close to me will celebrate my blissful and blessed relationship with my partner.

Talking about my partner aka my baby boo, I'm still amazed on how he could make me fall in love so effortlessly like crumbling pastries. I know along the way i wasn't the best man i should be and broke his heart and i always doubt myself that i'm giving him the best but rest assured that my love is real and immeasurable. His hidden efforts and thoughtful actions are beyond words and i'm forever grateful. Thank you.
