Staring at the blank page before you..

Slightly more than often, people tend to disappoint you. No matter which angle you direct yourself. Your friends, your colleagues, your fellow teammates and sometimes, even your loved ones can get you upset over things.

Most of times, these dissapointments happens unintentionally. You have to always remind yourself that just like you, they are human with the tendency to make mistakes. Still, there are those few who did it on purpose. Maybe out of jealousy, maybe the feel threaten by whatever quality that you have in you. Or Maybe, it's just a habit in them to see other people suffer.

After going through life facing all that disappointments from one to another, how do we know which one we could forgive and which one we should get even?

Best question on this is "How can we avoid facing it ever again?"

I don't think there is any specific answer to that. As for now, maybe it is best that we stay focus on what we want to do. Ensuring that our body, mind and soul are well prepared to face anything along the journey.

After all, it is our own decision that makes us what we are and who we are..and I'm going to do just that with all pending plans. Hopefully I'm strong enough to take the journey till the end.

And I hope, you'll do the same about yours.

Still, this does not mean you're all alone. How about supporting each others dreams and ambition? I'm sure it's not as hard as disappointing one another. Right?

Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Salam Aidilfitri

So, this is the end of the first day of Aidilfitri. I've always believe this is the day where you spend most of your time with the family. You seek forgiveness from your families, you eat together, you forget about all other problems and forget about being judgemental in whatever way you are.. Everybody is equal.

As the first day of Aidilfitri ends.. I think this year's Aidilfitri ends here for me. Not in the mood to continue much further as I did in the previous years.

I seek apologies from everybody. One fine day, if permitted.. I'll be back to my better self. For now, I rather not cause any issues, if there's any... I feel I should just stay away from people..

MAAF ZAHIR BATIN.. I really do mean it.

Inilah hari kita... Tiada lagi rasa ketakutan..

Isn't it interesting to know how fast time flies? Seems like just last week we began fasting in this holy month of Ramadhan, and now we're just a few days away from celebrating Aidilfitri. Right?

Petronas Aidilfitri 2006

There's a discussion on the radio this morning that somehow facinates me. Taking a real-life story of a lady, her life journey and her present achievements, the question to be discuss is 'Would you dare to drop everything you have and start all over?'

To me, that is an interesting question for each and every one of us to continously ask ourselves from time to time. Now, ponder on this..

- Would you let go everything that you've majored in your studies, the qualification and the childhood dream and move on to your current passion and dreams, which somehow you just realised it has always been in you all along?

- Would you drop all the things you have here, which is (in a way..) not really great, but secure enough to make it through life (with a little bit extra) and take a chance to go someplace else that seems much more promising?

- Would you drop entirely every hatred and anger that you have within you, and mend the relationship with the family and friends you once love will all your heart?

- Would you take another trip into serious relationship, dropping all fears and insecurities from your past experiences behind?

- Would you drop whatever tips and inputs you read in the magazines, and just follow your instincts instead?

These are some questions that most of the times we tend to ignore. Some might consider it as unnecessary and total nonsense.

In this world where everything should be proven scientifically and within logical reasons. And the results, Once proven, should then be able to translate to answers into monetary values.. Does people take such questions above seriously?

Do people believe that in life, there are times you should make logical decisions and there are times you make decisions because you intuition says so? And do they believe that such decision is not illogical or logical.. instead it's just beyond-logical?

I hope that I'm brave enough to take chances. I hope I'm strong enough to forgive and forget. I hope I'm confident enough to make the right decision..

This is my hope and prayers for this Aidilfitri.

To all of you out there.. I hope you give it a thought. I hope you would give yourself a chance to embrace life more than what you already have at present.

Maybe that way.. the world would work even better for all of us.

Salam Dunia - M Nasir

SALAM AIDILFITRI..Min al-eid wa al-faidzin.

Angels will run and hide their wings..

Road trip movies always manage to capture my attention. No, not that crazy Road Trip movie (although that movie also manage to get my attention). What I mean is any road trip movie. Cameron Crowe's movie like 'Almost Famous' and 'Elizabethtown' for example. The wacky 'Road Trip' and 'Euro Trip'. Now, it's this 2002 movie by Bob Gale (famous for his script on 'Back to the Future') called Interstate 60.

It's a semi-fantasy story about a guy who wished to find answers to his life on his 22nd birthday, which then granted in a form of a road trip on an interstate highway that never existed to anybody else but him. (and for the rest of the story, you might as well look for the dvd)

I'm not going to review this movie. Seriously, I've always believe that the malay saying 'Jauh perjalanan, Luas pengalaman' is true in a way. (provided that you know your way back..)

On a road trip, you experience different situation and cultures. You see different scenaries. You view from different perspectives and the most important of all, you will have a broader mindset which then makes you understand the world much better.

Whether the road trip will in the end turns you into a much better person or not, is actually up to you. But, I seriously recommend to all of you to take the adventure and go for a road trip.

Maybe it's time to go for another round of road trip. (by the way, enjoy the video. I feel like a dracula for the past few weeks..)

Ah, experience has conditioned you into thinking that all hearts are red and all spades are black because their shapes are similar. It's easier for your mind to interpret them based on that past experience instead of being open to the idea they could be different.

Thought I would die a lonely man..

I just realised that the past months have been a terrible, lazy months for me. Well, lazy is not really the word here. Demotivated and a little bit uninspired is more appropiate. Seriously, we are already in our mid Ramadhan, as well as the month of October. Yet, this is my first entry for October. Now how sad is that?

What keep the world moving? What keep the spirit alive? I'm sure the only answer to that is 'What inspires them to move'... and as cliche as it sounds, inspiration is still the number 1 factor that saves people from going insane.

My notebook is back, up and running after a few months of problems from one thing to another. With this one companion of mine, at the very least, I can start writing again. Still, that's just a general idea of how I will get back up and move on.

Oh well, a man got to do what a man got to do. You fall, you gather the energy, pick up the pieces and then get up and keep moving again.

The question be.. What is my inspiration? I myself not to sure about it. Lets just say I put a mirage in front of me, make believe that that's my inspiration and move on. Maybe that would do the trick.

Will the mirage in the end turns into the real thing? That's not for me to answer.We'll see...

Will you be my shoulder when I'm grey and older?
Promise me tomorrow starts with you,

p.s Just watch this video. I don't think any Malaysian TV have ever play this version of the music video.
