I think it's time I told you so... Free of Charge.

Free·dom (frē'dəm)


1. The condition of being free of restraints.
2. Liberty of the person from slavery, detention, or oppression.
a. Political independence.
b. Exemption from the arbitrary exercise of authority in the performance of a specific action; civil liberty: freedom of assembly.
4. Exemption from an unpleasant or onerous condition: freedom from want.
5. The capacity to exercise choice; free will: We have the freedom to do as we please all afternoon.
6. Ease or facility of movement: loose sports clothing, giving the wearer freedom.
7. Frankness or boldness; lack of modesty or reserve: the new freedom in movies and novels.
a. The right to unrestricted use; full access: was given the freedom of their research facilities.
b. The right of enjoying all of the privileges of membership or citizenship: the freedom of the city.
9. A right or the power to engage in certain actions without control or interference: “the seductive freedoms and excesses of the picaresque form” (John W. Aldridge)

These are some of the definition for the word FREEDOM mentioned in one of the online dictionaries.

We all love idea of freedom. The idea of living free from being dictated and controlled by another human being.

Yes, slavery is history. At least the old idea of slavery that is. But how many of us really sit back and dig deeper into the meaning of Freedom? How do we define freedom? If not for the generally accepted meaning of freedom, at least what does freedom means to you individually?

Do you have a total control over whatever events that happens in your life?

Do you have control over how your day would you want it to be every morning when you wake up?

Do you have a choice over what you want to do everyday?

Can you wake up on a Wednesday morning feeling happy and excited that you decided to just spend your time at home with your family and go to work right after lunch?

Do you really have control and choice in your present life?

Maybe it's time you think hard of the meaning of Freedom for you... again.

Have a wonderful day.

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me,

p.s You want it? There's a price you need to pay.. The question is 'how bad do you really want it?'

Have you any dreams youd like to sell?

Insanity: Continuing to do the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

This is a definition of insanity that is famously used by the Alcoholic Anonymous. Although it is not the definition taken from any dictionary, there are some truth to this definition, NOT only for the AA groups but to all of us who seek improvements in life.

I think it's tiring to listen to anybody who told us on how they really hope life would be better for them and how they wish things would be great in the future. Yet, with all the hopes and wishes that they have, they did not take the first step to pursue any of it.

Some tried the first step but then make a turn and go back to their old habits and nature, with all those excuses that they feel could justify their actions.

Let me remind you and me on any actions we took to get our goals and dreams. If the things we do now does not lead us to where our dreams are, why do we still keep doing the same thing and hope for different results?.. It's like working in a deadend job hoping you become the CEO of the company someday.

Or, You have a dream to catch. You need to change accordingly to get to your dreams. Do whatever it takes to get it. Why are you being such a coward when it's your own dreams you want to achieve?

OR MAYBE, you're just one of those insane people as defined above? It's your choice. Even if you don't want to choose, THAT is still a choice..

Have a good day.

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
Its only right that you should
Play the way you feel it

p.s You want something.. GO get it..

I am the sky here..

The hardest part of deciding to move on, making changes in life and struggling for improvements is making the first step leaving all your past and old habits behind.

It's like leaving to a new home. You know you need to move to your new home yet, leaving the old home is a bit hard to do. Especially, when this old home brings lots of memories and experiences to you. Yet, you know that to keep on living at that home would not bring anything better to you. Maybe it's located in a bad community, maybe the house is beyond repair.. you need to move to a better place, yet to packed your things and prepare to move is really a hard thing to do.

Same goes with the move to make life better. When you see that your life is a mess, you think of ways to get out of that situation. The moment you need to make the first step, all those past, bad habits and experiences you had before lingers to hold you back from making that significant move.

You know that you need to keep moving no matter how hard it is right?

So, keep on moving. Make it happen. Just go forward and don't look back in regrets. You'll get the momentum rolling once you get the hang of the journey.

AND if you feel that the move is kinda lonely journey. Here's a song by Audioslave to keep you company.

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the sky here
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night
The night

Never fear the obstacle in front of you. Never hesitate. Face it and don't quit to that journey to a better life.

p.s the experience is worth the journey... I'm coming home today..

Glory is being the bigger person in the most humble manner..

--- Find the others only on ---
--- Supported by ---

What else can I say?
Forgive me for all that may hurt you.
For promises that I have not kept tight.
For good intentions that have been misunderstood
For all the wrongdoings and all the right that went wrong.

Minnal Eid' Wal-Faidzin..

Salam Aidilfitri.

p.s How touching to see on the eve of 'Celebration og Glory', our first Angkasawan made a historic mark to reach ISS.

Is this really your value??

Let's try make some life personal income audit and see if we are worth accordingly to our qualification and experience.

How about we start a benchmark with this scenario.

You're a middle level executive working in the stable economic status of Malaysia with a salary of RM2500 a month.

_______________ = RM 96.15 / day

26 Working Days

RM 96.15
_______________ = RM 12.02 / hour

8 hours a day

So, if an executive earning RM2500 a month is valued at RM12.02 an hour (that is IF they don't work any extra hours). While a transvestite working at the alley could earn somewhere around RM 30 to RM 70 an hour.

Compare the two professions, which one seems to have more values in the eyes of the 'Market' ?

If you earn double than the executive above. Congratulations, you level of income are at par as the transvestite.

If you earn lower than RM2500 a month... I'm sorry, How about considering other options to make your income?

While you figure out what you should do now, watch the video. Maybe the information could help you.

p.s Wishing everybody SALAM AIDILFITRI and May Allah bless all of you with the mind, the heart and the soul of a courageous human being.

Covering Ella Ella Eyy Eyy Eyy...

Have you listen to the radio recently? I need constant dosage of music when I'm driving and I either listen to the songs on my thumbdrive (using the FM transceiver), play a CD or listen to the radio.

I don't really have any favourite station yet somehow, Mix FM would always manage to grab my attention much longer than any other station. (Don't go smiling just yet, your 2 new DJ's especially the latest addition did not do well on winning my attention..)

That's besides the point, the last few days got me listening to an acoustic cover version of Rihanna's song 'Umbrella' by Marie Digby. The song was done beautifully that I came to like the song everytime it's on air. (I don't really like the original version, I switch station every time it was played on the radio)

So, I checked about Marie Digby on the internet and I'm amazed to know that she got her big break through where she posted all her self-played guitar performances of her favourite song there. A YouTube phenomenon if I may say so.

She's now officially a recording artiste, Her version of 'Umberella' is now played at almost everywhere. From the look of it, she might have a big chance to be a huge star.

This is her first TV appearance on a show with Carson Daly (yes, that guy who's once on MTV)..

Ladies and Gentlemen, THIS IS MARIE DIGBY.

p.s Now why can't local talents show their true talent at the best merit instead of having to immitate somebody else.

Dream yourself along another day..

I stumbled on this Music Video by an Australian artiste. (or I think he's Australian..) . Lovely melody, easy listening and the lyrics just smack your head instantly (well, if you're a person who could think properly that is..)

How would you know if the right opportunity comes knocking on your door? OK, that's a very idiotic question to ask, there's no such thing as 'right' opportunity. As if there's also the 'wrong' opportunity. Opportunity is just opportunity. Right?

So, if you got an opportunity, would you seize it right away? Would you be the moronic genius who will think about it, analyse it, reanalyse it until your mind got your action paralyse that you suddenly not sure why you forgot the opportunity in the first place?

How would you define an opportunity? After all opportunity is like that mechanical emergency exit door that closes when you're caught in a burning building. The only way for you the get out is by having a quick thought, trust your instict and just jump out of the door before it is sealed completely.

The next time you get another opportunity (if you are that lucky I mean, most of the time you will not get it anymore..) How would you react to it?

Give yourself a favor and do something with it as soon as possible. Never do the same mistake again.. It's your life that we're talking here.

Go on, watch the video. It's really a nice song.

Don't be scared of what you cannot see
Your only fear is possibility
Never wonder what the hell went wrong
Your second chance may never come along

p.s Here's a question. How sure are you that you can live securely in the next 10 years? SELAMAT HARI RAYA!!

Your brain gets smart but your head gets DUMB..

Have you decided what you want to do in life?
Have you decided what would your life be?
Are you ready to change your realities?
Are you ready to commit to your dreams?
Do you dare to stand out from the rest?
Do you dare to to move forward?


WHY did you decide to go for all that?

Because you're an all star.. You make things happens for YOU.

p.s No, cowards do not need to answer all that questions.. Just sit there and wonder about other things..Happy Weekend

I’m the voice inside your head.. reminding you to CHANGE

Over the years, I've always post entries that related to 'change'. The ability to adapt change and stay focus on the end results for taking actions towards it is the key factor to be a successful person.

To make changes, you must first ask yourself 'WHY?' you need to make that change. Understanding 'Why?' will then set the course as the changes develops the processes.

Yet, most of us would try as much as they can to avoid from facing any changes. The fear of the unknown has always been the primary obstacles to start the change.

Some of us understands clearly why they need to make some changes, they know what it takes to make such changes and how to go a bout it. Yet, they did not make enough effort to make a small significance of changes. They would rather believe that there are ways to get the changes without having to sacrifice anything from them but later realise that will not happen and suddenly they give up on the idea.

There are some who are cowards to face the realities of the world, let alone their own realities. Yet, they prefer not to put up hope on making changes, Ignoring the facts that pointed at them (while laughing or hating those who do) in denial.

These are the pretenders, or hypocrites, not to us. Not to the society but to their loving family and all the people who really cares about them.

And to be weak, ignorance and not having the guts to go for a much better life and successes is just lame. This are the true losers who give up their real personal value from an extremely priceless to be just slightly above the price of a toilet brush.

Think about it. Make the steps to changes now. You owe it at least to your own family and relatives. (that is IF you have a huge heart to support your dreams and changes)

In the end, talk is cheap. Your actions and reactions will determine if you do have the courage to own your life, let alone making sure that your loved ones living a better life than what it is at present in the near future.

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one in your place
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender

p.s btw watch the video of the new single by Foo Fighters. This is 'The Pretender'
