Blogging is dying... (What??)

Yup, apparently that's what I read from The Star newspaper today, dear Miserer's and blogwalkers. They wrote that blogging phenomenon is dying. Is it true? Then what am I doing right now, huh? Duh. I think it is the most lamest statement ever. How could they wrote that? What do they know about blogging? Do they even own one?

Anyway, I am getting a little bit emotional over here. Yes, I am. But that is only because one of my favorite past time hobbies is being mocked about (ok, maybe I over-stress it still, it hurts me as blogger) and, it is important for me.

 I personally feels that blogging is still relevant, even though now we have Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. It might not be the top choice, in this touch and go society who wants everything to be done quickly, they choose to abandon blogging (some of them, completely). This is a sad case, considering blogging used to be a place where people can express themselves freely, upload pictures and videos, write anything that going on in their life  and now, that all have been replaced with other so-called social networks who also provides the same functionality, only less complex than blog ever was. Sure, it's simple, doesn't takes a lot of your time but if more than anything, I think it's only contributing to current society who is lazy enough to write. Even worse if they starts to use abbreviations in their post/messages. Just imagine if in the future you won't have to say "How do you do?" anymore and just said 'Hodo' instead... More simple isn't? What a great way in ruining the language.

My point is, don't say blogging is dying. It's not, actually. It's people who is changing, I'm afraid. And they keep on changing, no matter what. People reactions and response to technology have always been overwhelming, and it is a good thing in a developed country. And as for blogging, well it still have it's fans, me for example and thousands or maybe millions out there who still appreciates it's existence. For you out there who had changed your minds about blogging, well that is up to you (you might have your own personal reasons) but for me, blogging is staying.

Merry XMas and Happy New Year Everyone !

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year dear Miserers and Blogwalkers... Have a great holiday and don't forget to keep save all the time! I couldn't wait for the year to end and have another great year plan ahead. Anyway, as the end of year come by, I noticed a few changes and how I spent the year of 2010/11 would never be the same as 2012.

Things that didn't stay the same anymore:

1.) My age:
as the year passed by, so does my age. In 2011, I was 19, in 2012 I am 20 years old, and next year [2013] I would be 21!

2.) My Hobbies:

Reading: In 2010, I found back my interest in reading romance novels and I could finish it within 3 days. However, around 2011-2012, my interest in reading had started to decline and I am on the verge of losing this interest once more.

Composing songs: I still create two or three song every now and then, just not that frequent anymore as I was around 2009-2011.

Drawing: A great improvement for this hobby.

Writing: A great development for this hobby. I found it's an interesting because it allows me to have my imaginations running free.

3.) My Passion:
Keep on changing according to my interest.

4.) My Love:
I always care and love my family. And I have started to care about friends who are close to me as well.

The point is, nothing else stays the same even yourself. It is best of we just enjoy the passing moments in our life and save the best memories as long as we live.

15 Question to Ask Yourself

Hi Miserer's and Blogwalkers. We already at the end of the year and I'm hoping that everyone is in healthy state. Guess what, I come up with a great idea today. About what? Yeah, I'm getting to that. But first as a reminder, so that everyone who comes for a visit at my blog could read this - I'll do this entry in English. Hope you don't mind. :)

I always imagine what is it like to be interviewed by someone else. Thinking what kind of question that they will ask about me. Since I am no star or whatsoever, the brightest chance for me ever getting this kind of interview are... just from job interviews. The question that they will ask of course going to be so limited and yeah, revolves around 'So, What can you do for this company??"... Something like that... Now, that  wouldn't be so fun right? Based from this simple imagination and 'little urges' that I had, this entry of '15 Questions to Ask Yourself' were created! Have fun reading it!

1.) If you can DESCRIBE yourself in three simple words, what would they be?
    Loner - Outcast - Lame   (L.O.L) - Now you know don't you? The meaning of  L.O.L in my life.

2.) What do you love the most about yourself?
     My guts. Even though I been in countless of crazy situations that I would just love to avoid, I hardly back down. Either it's good or bad, I try to face it down the best way that I can. Giving up without no particular reasons just never existed in my 'way of happy life' dictionary.

3. Who is your role model?
Basically anyone or anything that inspirational. Even a simple gesture can be admirable. I also love anything that can builds my spirits and constructive to my behavior. 

4. Have you ever been in love? If you are what made you?
Puppy love, YES. Real love, NO. There a big differences between these two love and so far, I haven't experience any real love yet. Maybe I'm just waiting for the right guy to come along or damn my taste are too high. As for Puppy Love, haha I had countless of them! Nothing serious, is just that I love anything that walks and cute. Oh, and guy... yup it must be a guy because I am straight... Anyway, if nothing is holding me back, I would love to experience Real love it anytime soon. 

5. Describe what type of happiness that you seek for?
I am seeking for a happiness that won't last forever. Well, that sounds funny isn't? But what to do, I'm a realist. I don't think that a real happiness could or should last more than a month. Ah, why am I saying this? Well take for an example, you love something now - doesn't means that you still going to love it tomorrow. That's just who and what I am. I enjoy living in a moment as I personally think that preserving happiness itself can be a bit challenging.

6. Name 3 sports that you enjoy during your leisure time.
First of all, you should know that I'm not so much of a sports person. I never been into sports when I was a child and still is now but I won't deny that there's a few sports that I find enjoyable such as badminton and basketball. The last one should be squash but I still haven't get a chance to try on this one. 

7. Who are you closer to at home? Your mom or dad?
I must say, my dad for this one. I think it is easier to talk to my dad than my mom because my dad listen then talks. Contradict with my mom. When I tell someone something, is not that I'm asking  to solve my problems for me (mom always jump into conclusion that she needs to solve everything whenever I said something) - merely it is how I try to tell what is going on with my life. Nevertheless, it's still a tough choice and I depended on both of my parents before making any important decision in my life.

8. Favorite food?
Stupid question. I'll eat anything scrumptious and edible.

9. If you can try something interesting, what would it be?
Cross-dressing. Haha, I'll make a perfect male. No.. just kidding. But seriously, can you imagine me wearing male clothes? Maybe I should create composite picture for this one - still most unlikable to happen. Ah, screw this one! Next question please!

10. What kind of music that quickly turns you on?
Music that have clever lyrics and catchy, relaxing tunes in it. As for genre, I'll say Pop, Ballad, Jazz and slightly Country.

11. Describe man of your dreams.
Someone who can makes me laugh out of no reason, have a creative side, can play one or two instruments, sings and play well, caring and observant and enjoy himself whenever he's with me. Responds to situations and can blend in with my family. Oh, there's so much more but I just wanna keep the rest of it to myself.

12. 3 great qualities that you had?
If I answered to this one, I can't stop thinking that I am being boastful. I'll skip this one.

13. 3 bad qualities that you had?
Can I skip this one too? I feel uncomfortable speaking about my negativity.

14. Who is your best friend?
My little brother. He knows a lot about me than anyone else. Believe it or not he knows me so well that sometimes he could predict how am I going to respond to one situation or could finish my sentences. I won't say he's a mind reader, though. It's just this kid spend much of his time with me that he knows me better than anyone else. 

15. Talents, if you have any?
(I think) Writing short stories, song-writing, drawing manga, editing, and some flower arranging. I'm into wordplay too but not very good at it (so, we can just overlooked this talent, shall we?)

So there you have it... 15 Questions to Ask Yourself. See how well do you responded to these questions. So far I had skipped two. My bad. Well how about trying this game on your own? Maybe it will you to know yourself a little bit better. And if you got some extra time, please leave some comments before walking away to another blog. Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoy my questions and answers. I'm doing this for fun sake. Thanks guys!

Sickeness Nightmare !

Salam dear Miserer's and Blogwalkers... how you guys doing? Hope everything went well in your life...

Unfortunely, not for me...

Awal-awal December ni aku dah di timpa sakit... huu nak buat camne.. (Badan terpaksa merelakan)

Selalunya kalau aku post mesti nak benda best je kan? Well I take it ALL back now... I think I must share this bad experience dengan you guys. Tak kira apa, I want to let it out ( it's worth hearing anyway). Beringat-ingatlah untuk menjaga kesihatan agar tak menjadi seperti aku... (-.-):

Asal aku cakap sakit aku kali ni bad experience? Tak pernah sakit ke aku sebelum ni? Well, pernah tu memangla tapi tak pernah berlaku sebelum aku amik test. Job Interview untuk Workplace Communication II (salah satu subject yang wajib aku ambil di Uni) lak tu.. Haa... ORAL SPEAKING, you guys... Somehow tak rasa nak ingat balik pun but dah sampai sini I write this entry... I probably should go on. Never do work half-heartily - unless it's something that I had less interest on.

As the story goes, aku jatuh sakit kira-kira hari khamis lepas - masa aku tengah duduk dekat rumah. By then tak teruk lagi. Baru sakit-sakit anak tekak gegitu je. Okay maybe tak faham... Tekak saya rasa tak sedap (much better). Then aku balik je terus ke klinik, tak gi check doctor pun, terus pakai mintak ubat je ( memang sukati aku jelah kan jadi Dr. sendiri?). Dalam dua hari duduk rumah tu, aku figure kalau makan ubat ke apa, boleh get better. Memang tak la. Dahla antibiotik pun lupa nak amik hari tu.

So, dengan rasa yang agak berat hati - aku balik je la ke UKM. Time tu dah start dah dia, symptom-symptom pertama aku: batuk-batuk. Teruk gak bunyinya. Start masuk Monday, dah tak sedap badan dah. Selsema memang macam hujan la. Lecturer memang jenis suka cakap, asyik suruh kita orang quiet and listen to him (memang tak la aku nak buat gitu kalau feeling dah rasa macam taik). Aku keluar je apa yang patut keluar, lantakla orang nak cakap apa. Yang penting aku rasa selesa. Ironicnya orang lain plak yang rasa tak selesa (-_-):

Okay, cerita second day.. Yah, the crucial part of my sickness. Malam tu aku tidur memang dah start rotate 90 degree dah, badan dah start panas (tanda2 demam, maklumlah kalau sakit camni kan ade sequence dia: infect kat tekak, then selsema, later batuk, last but not least, raging fever...). Bayangkanlah, dengan 3 sekawan tu serang immune system aku sekaligus, maunya tak azabnya rasa?
Dah tu dengan job interview aku yang satu preparation pun tak buat (cam hampeh)... menitik gak air mata aku malam tu.. Dugaan.. dugaan... Tapi dah time interview dia kasik slot esok and since I'm not a fan of procrastination, I decided to go.

Sepanjang perjalanan ke kuliah tu lutut aku memang dah start mengigil...  Dalam hati tak habis-habis mengharap je mende alah (job interview) ni cepat habis. Kelas lain yang ada hari tu (ada dua kuliah, satu tak ada attendance, satu lagi ada but only one hour class. Aku decide lepak lab je sambil kepala aku tersalai depan monitor (amboi... buruk sangat bunyiknya but that's what truly happened) computer. Sampai je time untuk interview, kena lah tunggu turn la pulak... dekat sejam lebih gak fighting dalam bilik berair-cond tuh... taknakla disturb org lain kan  dengan batuk-batuk aku tu time interview... So, aku tengok jelah: one by one... Malay... Chinese... Chinese.... Until giliran aku... Nasib baik soalan yang dia tanya aku pernah baca technique ntuk jawabnya so, tak la meraban sangat my answer to the question. Ada la dalam 5 soalan dia tanya, afterwards the interview is done for. Lega...lepak jap, aku ingat bleh tahan lagi but I'm afraid not terus keluar cari toilet (ada this cute Chinese boy bukakan pintu... schweet <--- ngada jap). Tak yah kot aku citer apa jadi kat toilet tu... (pepaham sendiri je la).

Anyway, lepas je habis kelas member advice aku pergi Pusat Kesihatan (PK). Siap hantarkan lagi... (Terima kasih bebanyak). Tak la jauh mana pun from kolej aku... 500 meter pun tak sampai... ah senang cerita next to KIY, PK tu. Ikutkan hari sebelum tu nak je aku pergi PK tapi musim-musim sakit berjangkit ni, ramai lak student dok buat check up. Last-last gi gak la untuk dapatkan cuti sakit... haha. Ubat yang aku dapat, ada lah dalam 4-5 jenis sampai nak tengok kat description pun takut (in case kena telan pil >1). Hehe, macam budak-budak pulak. Peliknya sebelum ni aku ok je makan ubat, but dah besar-besar ni... Entahlah...

Aku rasa aku telan Panadol before Antibiotic dulu kot (ikut arahan doc) and then aku terus tidur... Later on baru rasa ok sikit.. and the rest is history... I'm feeling better now... still recovering... cuma selesema and batuk yang haven't go away. Maybe it will take some time before I fully recovered. I hope I will be soon...
