MSLS Part 4 – Tengku Razaleigh’s TED Worthy Speech and Other Stories

Tengku Razaleigh is the Former Minister of Finance, now Member of Parliament of Gua Musang. His officiating address made it worth waking up in the wee hours of the morning to catch the early morning train to KL, in time for his speech. On the other hand, our current Minister of International Trade and Industry, … Continue reading

MSLS, Part 3 : Mouhyeedeen Potong Steam and Other Stories

‘Potong Steam’ literally means cutting steam. It is a term used for someone who kills the enthusiasm of others. What happened was that everyone was looking forward to a Q & A session with Mouhyeedeen after his keynote address. After approximately 5 minutes of introduction, 80 seconds of the main body (of the speech) and … Continue reading

MSLS , Part 2 : We are happy people :D

Having been studying in Mantin for six and a half years, I find that nearly any other student (SPM, A-level, Undergrad, Postgrad…etc) is related to or have known a friend of mine or someone I happened to know. Therefore, I feel happy to add someone on Facebook who does not have a mutual friend with … Continue reading

MSLS , Part 1: Where people congregate in suit and ties on happy sunny weekends

I was placed into a group of awesome people for discussion. All of us ‘clicked’ rather easily, considering it was the first time most of us met. We lovingly called our group leader “Boss”. The elected secretary (was a guy) happily shifted all work to her (it was a lady Boss) with total success, be … Continue reading

MSLS : a prologue

The reason why I attend such events is more of the networking opportunities rather than the speeches themselves. Though I must add that Tengku Razaleigh’s opening address was TED worthy, really. I shall bug some of my seniors in the committee members for a video of his speech. Anyway, I made acquaintance with a whole … Continue reading

Visitors in the Kitchen

This dragonfly is a natural model. It waited until I finished taking its photograph before taking off. I loved how its vibrant colour made a contrast with my mum’s knife set in the background. This is a stray cat which loves to snuggle against my ankle every time I step outside to hang the laundry. … Continue reading

Rusty Keys

I just realised it has been two weeks since I last updated my blog. I haven’t been doing much but at least I’ve watched Inception and Despicable Me. Otherwise I curl up on a corner of the couch for hours on end wearing nothing but t-shirts and sarongs. With my messed up tresses, I can … Continue reading

Larger Fonts Please

I have been stalking people’s blogs out of boredom, only to find my eyes squinting to read the words in small fonts and neon colours. I am a myopic with prescription glasses powered over 700. I am put off reading your life story not because it is maddeningly mundane, but because it may cost me a … Continue reading

Bleach, with a twist o’ Lemon

The bathroom looked as if a monkey had just dropped through the ceiling earlier. The Electrician came today to fix a new fan in the master bedroom and new ventilators in the two bathrooms. Meanwhile, I was upstairs in the surau cleaning the windows and the wudu’ area. I used diluted bleach to clean the … Continue reading

Mortar and Pestle

Dear readers, apologies for the long absence. The holidays have drove my mind numb and lethargic. I am now reduced to a puny lazy bum, leading a sedentary lifestyle, accumulating the calories in all the strategic places and playing Neopets. Read on to discover my very unexciting out of school lifestyle. I made jenahak fish … Continue reading
