I find it hard to take..

I'm not really a morning person. The past weeks saw me driving early in the morning towards the city. No, I'm not employed to anybody. And NO, my business does not start that early. But as I drive along through the traffic. What I saw is a very sad situation.

Lesson learned from observation. You see people hustling their way to work every morning. Having to bear to ridiculous traffic jam as if they'll gain huge profit by doing that. Having to leave for work early so that they can pay the expensive monthly installments to a home they barely spend time in. (Oh I forgot, these houses are meant for them to enjoy when they old and useless to the corporation OR handicapped and forced to retire early)

Now, give yourself a chance and think about your future.

1.Will the increase to cost of living be lower than the increase of your monthly salary?

2, If not, then will your work permits you to have extra time to look for a permanent extra income?

3. If that's not possible, if you work really hard, with full dedication and efficiency, will you be promoted to a higher position with salary increment that suits that responsibility added to the post?

HERE'S a question most HR people would love to ask in a job interview..

'Where would you be in 5 years time?' OR 'How do you look at yourself in the next 5 years?'

I would love to add a few questions before you answer that...

Would the career development that you imagine you'll reach in 5 years gives you the life freedom that you deserve to get? Can you just walk off the office in an instant as soon as you got a message saying your family member is warded? Can you do you work from home because your kid is having fever?

If most of your answer is either NO, Not sure or maybe 'I think so..'.. then forget it. That dream career of yours cannot save your own life except if the problem is work significant.

I'm sorry.. Truth hurts but that does not mean there's no way out.

Drop your ego, put aside the arrogance and open yourself to possibilities.. Once you're ready, we can discussed about it further.

Until that happened. This is a song for you..

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow


p.s On the 50th year of independence, I would love to see at least 50 people having a true life freedom. Don't ask me how I would do it.. I think I will achieve that by year end.

Let your troubles fall behind you

It's not easy to forget all the bad things we experienced in the past isn't it? I'm sure most of us do agree on that. When the saying 'To forgive and forget' is always easier said than done. When the saying 'Think of the bright side' is never that bright of an advise.

Somehow, all that is not that difficult when you can cherish every happy moment that you have. Even the smallest of such experience could lift up your spirit and move on.

I'm sure each and every one of us have such happy moments in our lives. No matter how small it is. No matter how insignificant it can be compared to those disasters that have ruled our lives.. Those happy moments WILL save your life and WILL turn you into a much better person

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

Enjoy this song. Something for the weekend.

p.s It's roadtrip back to KL bayybaehhhh!!

Makes you wonder how the world keeps turning..

Alhamdullillah, Nazrin or famously known as Yin was found last Saturday thanks to all the help and mostly prayers from the mass public. (I'm sure mass prayers make a huge difference on the effort)

Alhamdulillah, we have seen another result of congregation taken place before our eyes. When we all out our intention as one unit. When we work as a one full heartedly. When we care about others more than we care about ourself as an individuals, things will turn out great and more than what we actually expected.

Things did progress to the better the past few weeks. There are little hiccups along the way but, as you work together towards a single goal. Progress does have it's way to exist.

My sentiment to share here, NEVER LIVE ALONE. As the saying 'No Man is An Island' is definitely true. Seek to live in a community. It does not have to be a huge group. Just a handful of people who really care about one another will do for a start.

In a group that cares, any dreams will be a reality. No single problem is too hard to handle.

Trust me on this. I've seen many of such right before my own eyes. And if you've never experience it before, come to me and I'll show you that it does exists.

I'm gonna touch the sky
And I spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
I'm gonna live my life everyday

First rule to all that... NEVER LOSE HOPE TO LIVE.

I wish I wish I wish...

It's been a long silence away from blogging. It's also a hell of mind disturbing week. Nazrin, the little boy who is missing since 2nd April is still nowhere to be found. Too many happy mments to come soon and yet major hiccups still manage to get it a way to make sure those moments won't happen. AND.. it's Friday the 13th...

Now I wish I could do something.. Unfortunately, until that particular day arrived.. I'm just as useless as I've always been..

SO, wish me the best. May I live to see all my dreams come true. I'll fight if I have to.

For now, I can just wish. Following the advise of Eddie Vedder..

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish...
I wish...

p.s Wish all of you.. a VERY WONDERFUL WEEKEND

Hold the wheel and drive..

It's been a while since I post any entry on songs isn't it? Yup, there's always videos on songs but I never actually wrote anything about the song for the past months or so.

Anyway, have you been to any self motivation seminar or anything like that? Music has always been an important part of the process. They use music to build the atmosphere of the event. They use music to lift up your spirit. They even have songs that could build your motivation.

I think the most popular song in any motivation session that I've seen, heard or been to would be R Kelly's 'I believe I can Fly' from Space Jam Movie's Original Soundtrack. Maybe because the words are simple enough for anybody to understand it.

But I got another theory in self motivation. Before you 'believe you can fly' or before you believe that 'you can touch the sky', I think the first thing that anybody need to have is the to take control of your life and not to be steered by anybody else.

So, to those who need to lift up your motivation. Before you listen to R Kelly's song. I want you to listen to this song by Incubus.

Its driven me before, it seems to be the way
That everyone else get around
Lately, Im beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found

Now, take the steering and YOU DRIVE!!

p.s At the very least, you decide the speed limit. You decide the direction. That's good enough.

Konsert 3 Diva (The Professional Review)

They did a stunning performance. They got the audiences mesmerised by their talents. They are a true Diva. Nothing can compared to their spectacular show.

This is the only photo I have on their concert. It's the tightest close-up photo anybody could take and never been shown on any press.

Enjoy the photo...
