But None The Wiser

I was supposed to turn 31 years wiser last 14th January. Supposed to being the operative word here. I’m still making the same silly, foolish mistakes when it comes to matters of the heart. The only difference is that I’m able to laugh about it rather than cry about it. Well, I did turn 31. I can’t stop the tick-ticking of the clock but as for turning is still a work in progress. I'm guessing that it will be an on-going work in progress.

Turning 31 was done on a small scale this year, dinner at my favourite restaurant, Sahara Tent in Bukit Bintang with girlfriends who has been with me since I was still a penniless college student surviving on Maggi and nasi lemak bungkus shared between us and credit on the handphone was almost always RM0.00 hehe. Late nights were for sharing secrets and watching movies on the PC, not for studying.

That was 10 years ago.

Sandwiched in between those years shared between those friends that I love were weddings, births, heartaches, terminal illnesses, new jobs, divorces, weight gain and weight loss, but not so much of weight loss though, the gaining part seems to be more dominant, mortgage, loans, travels, the first car, more bills, court cases, old friendships gone sour, new friendships blossoming, the loss of loved ones and the search for identity and to be an individual.

I still can’t believe that 10 years flew by so quickly.

I am contented. Contented and blessed to have gone through the past 10 years. The good or the bad, the happy or sad, it has made me into the person that I am today.

I still have a many more milestone to go and achieve, so many more dreams to catch, trails of laughter and happy moments to create, and I know, inevitably, a few drops of tears to shed.

I’m very optimistic. Being optimistic attracts good vibes. They say that when you have been down so low, there is nowhere to go but up. So this is me going up. Higher and higher, eagerly wanting to see the view from the top, surrounded by the people that I love.

It’s going to be a great year. For you and for me and we’ll do good to the world, and to humankind.

I just wanted to share with you that I turned 31 last 14th of January ;-)

Adukataruna Naruto Shippuuden Doraemon

Ok I was busy typing away now that I my name card states that I am a writer. I am a writer therefore I write and type. I type and type and type till I can’t type no more. I’m typing this while listening to Sex and the City on my iPod and researching for materials for my next article over the internet. Talk about multi tasking or maybe not so much of multi tasking, just distracted at the moment.

What made me what to write today is adukataruna.

It is of my personal opinion that this Adukataruna Naruto Shippuuden Doraemon is a man of a miserable life with miserable friends with nothing but hate in his heart. He must have been a bully in school, making everyone’s life miserable.

He should be introduced to Mawi’s sister in law. Both of them are scums. No, they’re worse than scum. They’re the fungus that feeds upon the scum. Fungus that feeds upon the scum at the very bottom of the nastiest, dirtiest, foulest smelling sewage plant ever. Visualize that.

Freedom of speech is not something to be taken lightly or in Adukataruna Naruto Shippuuden Doraemon’s case, stupidly, idiotically and most importantly, inhumanly.

Regardless of who they may have been while they were living, the point is the person has passed away. Kau dah hilang akal or kepala otak letak kat lutut ke? No religion in the whole world or the universe including the galaxies has ever taught to taunt a person who has passed away. No, taunt is too nice of a word to describe what he did. Orang dah meninggal sedekahkan al-fatihah la bongok. Tu la sekolah agama tak nak pergi.

The picture so contradicts hid beliefs and perhaps principles.

I seriously hope that he will be charged.

Now he has tainted this blog with his hatred because I hate him.
