Dawn of a new Malaysia

Saturday, May 12, 2018

As the world and Malaysia settle in to the fact that Malaysia was able to achieve what it once thought possible. a humble citizen like myself will take some time to reflect and remember that this day on the the 9th of May, I made that difference.

To greater days ahead for Malaysia. I am hopeful now that my kids and grand kids will have a chance of a brighter future.

One day, it will all make sense

My little reminders

I'm almost there

For what its worth, I now know what I don't want in life. Silly me.
I'm almost there. I may not know where I want to be but I'll leave it in Your hands. Trials and tribulations, I've had my share. But I'm almost there.

Fight the good fight

Monday, May 06, 2013

7am.As a first time voter, I eagerly did my duty. I woke up early, put my game face on, braved the scorching heat for 2 hours before I was able to make my mark on the paper for our future. The future of the children I might have one day. For their children. Maybe, one day.

I don't kid myself. I was never  into politics and never had the stomach for it. But I, like so many of my fellow first time, doe-eyed voters got caught up in the election wave. Our generation, the new generation, went to vote for the first time.Blue ink fingers baby. No, I did not post my blue finger on facebook. But I am a proud voter. I voted for the change I wanted. The change that one day Malaysia will be a racial free country, that our skin colour and religious beliefs do not dictate and do not represent who we are as a person. 

You see, this isn't about the fact that BN won through obvious lies and deceit. It's not about PR losing yet again after the hopeful bersih-ing of the electoral system. This is about my dad.

My dad, was born here. He went through the same hardships, he tapped rubber in the mornings before going to school. He went to public school. He learned to speak the occasional Tamil words. He played football with his kaki bola. He makes the occasional racial joke. Because everyone does it. He is a Malaysian. And he is growing old. He turns 60 soon. And then he turns 65. And 70.

And like so many from his time, he wants a change. A change from the corrupted leaders of his time. Filtering his hard earned money for their own selfish gains. A change for a chance to see a better future for his kids. Yesterday marked another let down in his life time. Something he had miniscule control over. To see an old man look sad and resigned is something I never want to see again. He might never see the fruits of his labour in his time. The good fight he put in as a responsible citizen for his country. But he wants his kids to see it. The hope that one day, our government will be the government for the rakyat. So daddy, I voted for a change yesterday. It didn't win the overall election, but I'd like you to know it was for you. I want you to see change in your time. Because you deserve it.

I'm as idealistic as can be. I have hopes that the winning government will reform. And if they don't, we'll have another election in 5 years. I'll pray for you, my current government. Because you have a lot to do. The long journey ahead will be rough, but if you can prove us wrong, you will regain our trust. That shall be your biggest victory.

So let us not be sad. Not for long at least. Our work is cut out for all of us. Be the change we want to see in the world.

A smile.

You never know why people hurt you the way they can. Twist your fragile heart into a knot of confusion. Never knowing when it will be untangled. Or the creases that follow. Letting someone have that power to do just that is one scary feeling.

But, you know the person might just be worth the pain and suffering. After all, you hurt the ones you love most. Whatever happens, hold your head high, and smile through the tears. For someone out there is always fighting a harder battle. War scars that cut deeper into any measly scratches you encounter in your life. Petty arguments were never worth holding on to anyway.

Life's always a strange creature. Anything that can go wrong, will. Hate you, Murphy. I'll never be ready for the next one that comes my way. So, I smile and act like the world is my merry go round. That a great cup of coffee and toasted marshmallows are all I need in this world. Because, just because, that is all I can do. And maybe, that is all I really can offer. A smile.

I got food, baby

A leap of faith perhaps

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

I've never been so afraid in my life. Oh a different kind of feeling, not your usual pre-exam stress. I know things happen for a reason and I do not question the things He has in store for me as I believe He knows what is best. But sometimes, I falter, like the weakling that I am. To be blessed with awesome people around me is the one saving grace He has given me. Wish me luck and a whole bucketful of blessings. I'm headed for the final showdown.

I am allowed to mistakes every now and then. Bear with me.

One of those days.

You know those days when you just feel stupid? Yup, just one of those days.

Deer in Headlights

Sunday, April 22, 2012

It's funny really how much this little fille has changed. Right now I am trying not to pull out every strand of hair left on my already balding head. And hellooooooo! Where did you huge ass pimples come from??! Aren't I pass puberty? KEEL ME NAO.

So, hello corporate world. Maybe I am not so ready for you yet. I am, of course, coming from a very protected circle of family and friends, like a naive deer in headlights. Spare me a second to breathe, please. I can only believe that with every obstacle I face, there is always something worse that can come charging at me.


I need to compartmentalise my train of thoughts ASAP.

Thank You.

Oh, a first!

So thankful for the words.

And she's back.

Another new adventure perhaps? Inspiration comes in bouts and sparingly so in my case. Mainly because I'm fickle and it takes alot to pigue my interest in something. But as always, God has been good and somehow I have been very blessed, deserving or not. I'm determined to continue this path I have chosen with God's blessing, counting the little milestones I achieve along the way. Cheers to another good day.
