My First Random Post

Many things have occurred lately and each time I encounter something interesting, blogging about it comes to my mind. But then when I sit in front of the laptop, my mind totally goes blank! I was like "What was it I wanted to write about again?" and "Nah, that is not interesting enough for me to blog about". In the end of the day, I kept delaying my blogging activities. I realized this fact and I don't like it. So I finally decided to get my hands moving and just write down whatever that comes to mind. This will basically be my first time writing about random stuff without actually knowing what kind of story I want to start with and in what kind of manner I actually want to end it. Well, here goes~!

FOR THOSE WHO WANTS TO SAVE THEIR PRECIOUS TIME, JUST AVOID READING THE FOLLOWING FOUR PARAGRAPHS. TO HELP YOU DO SO, I SHALL SEPARATE THE PARAGRAPHS FOR YOU. AGAIN, WARNING. TO SAVE YOUR TIME, JUST IGNORE THE FOLLOWING FOUR PARAGRAPHS.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Owh yeah... Now that I come to think of it, I need to firstly post about how cool a friend of mine named Abdullah Azzam Jamal actually is. Firstly, I need to make things clear, I do not enjoy doing this but I have to do so because I challenged him to do something and he did and now I have to blog about his coolness as his reward. Makes sense? Good... Lets proceed shall we? Why is this guy "COOL" you ask? It would be foolish of me to answer that question without properly introducing him to all of you... Lemme see... He is at my age, he is now currently studying at KUIS (Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa... I think..). This is his link to his facebook profile (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/profile.php?id=100000281060448&ref=ts). This is his link to his blog (http://keyranacool.blogspot.com).

Let me just briefly explain to you guys what I know about him and why is it that he is cool. First and foremost, he does Parkour as well. As a matter of fact, he started doing it as early as I did. He is the kind of person who does not get influenced by others nor is he the type who actually influences others as well. I think it is a fair thing to say because he does not actually influence or encourage anyone of his friends to do something that he is doing. In other words, he is a bit "Unique". We usually meet people who follow the flow of life and obey the norms of the society. But this guy is different and when I say different, I really do mean "different". He is the kind of guy who spends most of his time thinking about things normal people don't usually think about in detail. He meet with a variety of people and from each of them he learn about many things other people do not know about each other. When I say a variety of friends, I mean it. Despite hanging out with friends from all these different backgrounds, he does not wear a "fake mask" when hanging out with them to blend in. Instead, people are fond with him being himself.

When I say he does not wear a "fake mask", I do not mean that he show's his true personality to all of his friends. If he has something to say that he do not agree about to his friends, he either keeps it to himself or does not say so directly. When he hangs around with his friends, even though when he is in a bad mood or in a messed up situation, he does not actually tell nor show how he is actually feeling or what he is actually thinking about to his friends. Maybe it is a kind of barrier he usually creates in order to have a privacy of his own to shape his own thoughts, or maybe he thinks that it is unnecessary to involve such matter with each and everyone of his friends, or maybe he thinks that it is impossible for a mere person to understand his views with words alone, or maybe he's just "cool". Anyways, this guy expresses his thoughts and views in his blog frequently. I suggest you guys visit his blog every now and then. It seems that he has loads of followers due to the fact that he usually write about things that people could relate to and people like it due to his honesty when discussing about certain matters. He also love to write about something that could make people critically think about something.

The only loser-side of him I notice is that he usually ask questions about things in life that makes him think every now and then for example "why am I becoming this kind of person?", but deep inside he already knew the answer. But still, that is also why he is "COOL". THE END!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For those who did not heed my warning and read the previous four paragraphs, wasn't that all just a waste of your time? Ish ish....

Okay, from here onwards, I shall write about whatever that comes to my mind! XD!!

Yesterday I heard the music "Baby, baby baby, uuuuu~" on the radio and I just found out that it was one of Justin Bieber's song. Only now I noticed that even though Justin Bieber is currently so damn famous, I don't know any of his songs... In fact, I don't even know how he looks like! The only thing I know about him is that he is a kid who has a voice of a girl.

Yesterday me and my brother and two of my other friends (Siddiq n Acap) encountered a JPJ road block in Putrajaya. Me and Acap sitting behind quickly pulled the seat-belts just to notice that the thing that the end of the seat-belts were supposed to connect to was not there!! It was hidden deep under the seat or something. So we had to think fast and quickly decided to simply PRETEND that we were wearing the seat-belts. Me and my friend used our elbow to keep the seat-belts attached to our self and to keep the end of the seat-belts hidden from the JPJ's view or else they could easily see we were faking it. When we were blocked by the JPJ officers, one of the officer took a look at the seats behind to see if we were wearing the seat-belts properly or not. We kept our cool as one of the officer approached the car. The officer was CRITICALLY and DIRECTLY looking at my seat-belt and was looking at my elbow as well. I thought to myself "Omg, does he see that I am actually faking this? How do I even explain myself?". Then he gave us the signal to pass. YAY!!! Our tactic worked! My brother and Siddiq sitting in front were surprised that we weren't stopped and asked us "Woot? Did you guys pretend wearing the seat-belt?". Then we laughed as we continue our journey to Alamanda to catch a movie. What movie? "Shrek" that is.

When we were waiting for the movie "shrek" to start, we wasted our time by capturing our photos with the movie ads posters nearby. Here is one of the four pictures we took! It is simply a dream come true... To hold hands with Freddy Krueger was definitely one of my "100 Things To Do Before I Die" list! To think that it came true... He was very friendly. XD. After that we went to the nearby arcade and played a game of capturing fishes in a pond using a net played by four of us at once (Yeah, I know, so lame, but it was quite interesting.. At least multi-player was enabled). Of course it was all simply virtual.


Also yesterday, before I went to the movies, I accompanied a friend of mine to renew his license and Road Tax. As we were waiting in the post office to pay the Road Tax thingy, I saw many "Epic Failures". As usual in places like this, there is a machine that allows us to collect our numbers for our turn to be printed on a paper by simply clicking a button (I really do think there is something wrong with my sentence here, but I am too lazy to figure out the correct one :O). There is an explanation written on the machine which further explain what button A is for and what button B is for. In that explanation itself, it gave the image of button A and button B in a circle as an example. The actual button for both is actually located on the right side of the explanation thingy. As I waited for Siddiq's turn, I noticed many people actually pressed the icon in the guide thingy instead of the real button on right side of the guide itself. They were actually confusing real buttons with fake icons. I noticed a guy pressed the fake icon and said "Eh? Kenape tak boleh?" and another guy said "Eh!?" and another girl being confused but quickly realized her mistake. Luckily no one actually made a fool of themselves to an extent of asking for other people's assistance. Epic Fail, lol...

Believe it or not, I actually tried to search for an image of "fake seat-belt" via Google so that it would enable me to upload it here in my post as an example that shows me wearing a seat-belt in a fake manner. But all I see was reports saying "Fake seat-belts manage to lie to the police, but not the Grim Reaper", "A driver died crashing his head first due to his fake seat-belts used to lie to the police" and many other reports that says the same thing. What I did was... I quickly closed the tab. Wee~





When I was little, I usually encounter a flu. Most of the time my nose was unable to breathe air or smell properly. Therefore, most of the time it made me think... What happens if a person kidnap me for a ransom and as he was doing so he wraps my mouth with a cellophane tape? Being a fragile kid as I was, I will be unable to breathe through my mouth and my nose! That would be the death of me and the kidnapper would not even know it! Does this ever came across your mind before or is it just me? :O!!





Do you guys know about the "No Plastic Bag Day" every Saturday? I bet you guys do. Do you guys know that if you insist that you want to use plastic bag after buying something from a shop such as 7-Eleven, you will need to pay another extra RM0.20 for every plastic bag? I bet you do. Well, last week when I went to a 7-Eleven in Shah Alam for a Gym session I noticed a guy was lining in front of me so I had to wait for my turn to buy something. After he paid for his stuff to the cashier, he then quickly asked for a plastic bag after he noticed that he was not offered a plastic bag. Then the cashier said "You need to pay RM0.20 please". Then the guy who asked for the plastic bag suddenly looked at the cashier in disgust and said "Heh, awak nie nak berniaga..." in an irritating manner and then refused to pay as he walked out the shop while carrying his stuff he just bought... I was like... Is this guy for real? Is he really that kind of an idiot? Doesn't he know about the "No Plastic Bag Day"? Even if he doesn't, it is clearly written there near the counter to begin with... What a complete moron...



Yesterday I went to a restaurant called "Red Wok" for the first time. At first I thought it was another one of those cheap restaurants you see located on the side of the road. But I was WRONG. The foods served there were expensive and the quality was nice as well. They serve sea foods with exquisite taste such as Shark Fin Soup and they also offer a Buffet~! Ice creams were also available aside from everything else. The best part about the restaurant was that we were able to COOK FOR OURSELVES!! They had all kinds of seafood and meat that has been cut into small pieces so all you need to do is grab it and steam it, sizzle it, or do whatever you want with it. The thing that allows you to cook your meal was provided at the center of your table. I took what I wanted and it was then that I noticed, I took only one type of food and it was meat... I just noticed that I really really really do not actually enjoy eating variety of foods that much compared to other people. In fact, I don't actually enjoy what I eat and when I eat... As long as the food does not taste bad, then its okay with me. I eat and eat, and then I get stuffed. I don't actually enjoy the process that much :/.

Do you guys know about the existence of "Kawanlah.com"? I shall assume that you guys don't... Do you guys want to know what is it? I'll tell you what it is! It is the Malaysian version of "FACEBOOK"!! Yes! Arinah told me about it as she was making fun of a guy who she knows about who so happens to be playing kawanlah.com instead of Facebook. At first I didn't bother to look it up on the internet. But yesterday she talked about it again so I decided to look for it. It was soooooo FUNNY!!! XD!!! In facebook you have the option to "poke" someone... But in Kawanlah.com you are provided the option to "hug", "kiss" and even "BITE" a person! Yes! It is the kind of site where horny kids in school join to flirt with one another. Very very lame.... I joined for fun but Arinah quickly told me to delete the account because she doesn't like it. lol.


Do you guys know the differences between Islamic architecture and Muslim architecture? I bet you guys don't cause I'm awesome! Yesterday I helped out with Arinah's assignment because I am more used to doing assignment instead of her due to the fact that Human Sciences really does very highly focus much more towards assignments compared to Landscape students so I decided to lend her a hand in doing so. She is not used to doing assignments but then her lecturer was quite demanding on them due to reasons I do not know. They had to do an assignment about an article about Islamic design. Her lecturer demanded them to do the assignment but not simply just an assignment regarding the summary of the article or what the article is all about, but also about what we understand about the article. For example, we need to comment about the way the author write the article, the validity of the author's facts and stuff like that. Due to the fact that Arinah was not used to this kind of stuff, she was worried that she was not able to finish the assignment in time. It so happens that I spent the whole day training until night itself so I did not actually have the privilege to help her out since morning. When I came home, I took a bath and then decided to finally start helping Arinah to do her assignment.

But then I noticed "Heroes" was on Astro, I don't actually follow Heroes after the 3rd season but still it was still interesting for me to watch so I decided to watch Heroes for awhile. In the end it was already 11.20PM and Arinah's assignment needs to be finished by tomorrow. (Not really, its just that she is the type of person who wants everything to be finished early). By the time I called her, she was very very worried to an extent of almost bursting in tears because I was not there to help her out all day long, lol. She was like "Ammar x tolong Arinah.. Arinah risau keje x siap tp ama x tolong arinah.. Arinah dari tadi energetic nk buat tapi ama tgk Heroes...". I was like "Alololo, okay okay. Kita buat la nie skrg okay? Knp risau sgt nie?". Then she was like "Sbb tadi arinah energetic nk buat, tapi sbb ama lame sgt tgk Heroes arinah dah xde mood dah... Arinah risau keje arinah x siaaaap... Ama kene tolong jugak... Arinah x retii.....".. In fact, she was almost crying because she doesn't actually know HOW to do the assignment cause the lecturer was so demanding. So I was like okay okay, lets do it!

So I read the lecturer's instruction and then instantly started doing the assignment through Yahoo messenger. I read the 25 pages of article and did a comment about it in various different ways in a critical manner. For me, I liked doing that kind of assignment. It was veeeery eaaasy because we do not actually need to provide references each time we provide a statement! Instead, we can just comment critically about everything and the only reference we need to provide is the sentence from the article itself! How cool is that!? So I didn't actually encounter a hard time doing so since the assignment was only supposed to be 2 pages long (Lol). But the spacing was 1.0 instead of the usual 2.0. So it was like 2x more than the normal assignment, but still, it was easy and entertaining. The article was divided into six different sections. So what I did was I quickly read all 25 pages and chose what I wanted to comment about provided with facts as well. It took me an hour to finish the assignment through Yahoo Messenger.

In the end I noticed something... I was the only one who did ALL the work! I asked her what was she doing while I was reading and thinking of what sentences to come out with... She then said "Arinah tgk youtube~ hihihihihihi~!". At first I was worried so I decided to help as much as I can and did not notice much that she was actually slacking of! So much for worrying. Well, I can't really blame her seeing that she does not know how to do such an assignment. So now that she knows how to do that kind of assignment, she can do it herself next time. At first she was worried like crazy to an extent of crying, then she was happy when I was lending her my assistance, after I noticed I was the one who did all the work as she watches youtube due to the fact that she was clueless on what to do, she was then happy like a kid who received a candy, she was like "Yay yay, thank uuuu~ Yay yay~".. How can you argue with someone like that? Haih~

Anyways, I learned the differences between Islamic architecture and Muslim architecture when I was doing the assignment which I practically had to read the article about it 25 pages long. To make it easy for you understand, I'll make it simple. Islamic architecture is the design that truly reflects what Islam is all about and all the Islamic values... Muslim architecture is the design that are designed by Muslims but does not reflect Islam properly or the design is clearly not reflecting Islamic values. Tadaaaa~! You learn new things everyday, how awesome is that? :D

I am addicted to games that has something to do with statistics.....

I am in love with water... I cannot live by drinking mineral water alone.... Although I do not enjoy eating food, I really really do enjoy drinking water... Tasty water that is, not mineral water and such.

When I remember about the embarrassing things I encounter in life, I smile...

My right wrist still hurts, I still cannot do a normal push up. Mostly because I overused it yesterday when I was training with Siddiq as we were killing time to wait for Abir's advertisement shooting to be over.

From my point of view, it is ironic that normal people find the move "backflip" to be something very cool and very hard to do... But truth be told it is the most easiest flip compared to any other flips.. But it is also the scariest flip to learn compared to others and also the easiest flip to lose due to fear...

Sometimes I really do feel like making weird voices or anything that appears retarded with the new people I meet and make it seem as if it is my real nature and then if they ask me about it I will suddenly freeze my movement as my friends suddenly change their facial expression and tell him/her "That is a very nice thing to say to a crippled person you douche-bag, well done.".

Owh yeah, last week I went out with my mother. She went to a shop to buy something as I decided to stay in the car with my brother. But then my mother was taking her own sweet time to an extent that I was a bit worried so I went out to look if she was okay. But then I noticed she was already on her way out of the shop and went towards the car without even noticing I was walking behind her. What I did was I pretended to be a snatch thief just to see how my mother would react. I didn't make any surprising moves, all I did was I walked next to her and just grabbed her hand bag as she was holding it close to her. She quickly startled! She was in shock and did not move for 2 seconds. She then slowly tilt her head towards me with her wide-opened eyes terrified. All I did was smiled towards her. Lol. Now I know how fragile my mother is and how easy it is for people to actually steal from her. She did not even scream or even hit me as a reaction at all. Now I really need to be there with her each time she goes shopping. In the car she asked me not to do that again and what if she suddenly hits me in the face. I told her that I was simply testing her self-defense reaction and if she hit me, then she would pass the test, lol. I did feel a bit guilty doing so but hey, at least she now knows how dangerous it can actually be to be alone outside.

I don't fancy hand phones. I fancy old style telephone, for real... I just love the feeling of dialing the numbers using this kind of old telephone. :D
















I used to hang up on people so fast, I hung up even before they manage to finish their sentence "goodbye" even though they are using their own credit to call me and it was not my money that was wasted. It was simply a habit of mine and people frequently complain to me about that. Now they complain to me about the fact that me and Amir despite the fact living in the same house, we practically do not speak to each other. This irritate them because each time they want me to ask Amir something, I told them to ask him themselves by giving them an excuse that he was very far away from me even though if he was actually sitting next room, weeee~!

I used to think "Chucky" the killer doll was a very scary horror movie. Now it is ridiculously funny.

I used to think that "Popeye The Sailorman" was a very good cartoon that gives a very good influence to kids. But now that I think of it, it influences the kids to fight with each other. It also portray the heroin frequently being kissed forced-fully by Bruno. Not a nice cartoon...

There was once a time earlier this year when I saw an old lady ordering loads of vegetables to eat at a food court in Mid valley, despite the fact that she may be a Vegetarian, I really felt pity for her because she had to eat all that non-delicious veggies just to keep her healthy. :(

I can only study at night and my body works best at night. I cannot wake up early in the morning and I don't like eating breakfast.

I have short term memory and I don't usually speak loudly so it is usually hard for people to understand what I am saying if they do not focus.

I don't like hearing musics all of the time. I cannot sleep nor study if there is music.

I would really like to see how people actually see me as a person in real life in their own personal point of views.

I don't like to eat much food in one go, I like to eat food from to time. In other words, I like to eat food such as biscuits rather than rice.

Owh well, I guess it is enough for now. I'll try to think of something proper to write down next time. :D

Keyrana - Read the above statement. What do u mean u are weak in expressing people in words?

Naqib - I do not "see" Mizah in person, I want to keep it that way.
