無礼な。。。

食い終わったら、さっさと帰れよ」と店の行列に立っている一人の子連れのオッサンに言われた。

腹が立った。

あいつはたぶん「この外人日本語知らねぇだろう」ときっと思っていた。

ケンカ売ってんじゃねよ、バカヤロウ」と返した。

自分の声はそんなに大きいとは思わなかった。

周りの客の視線が俺に集中していた。

あいつは体を壁に付けて聞いていないフリをしていた。

口がデカイ女々しいオッサンだった。 

なんだよ。

でも、もう遅い。

俺は感じの悪い外人だと見られていた。

あいつの子供の目と合った。

なぜ怒ったのか、忘れた。

子供は俺を怖そうに見ていた。

一番無礼なのはだと気付いた。

俺が黙っておけば、良かったのに。

大人気ない行動に大反省

年末のテレビ番組

日本の年末のテレビ番組は本当に空っぽで、くだらなすぎると、いつも思っている。

今年も同じだ。

残念!

良い年お越しをするには日本のテレビを見ない方がいいといつも思う。

っていうか、今テレビ(ラジカルッ)見てるけど、女子アナが歌っている。

視聴者をバカにしてるのか?

そして、おっぱいの大きいグラビア・アイドルの出番。 that's so fucking low.

こんなゴミは何が面白い?

あのロリコン東国原知事もなぜこのくだらない番組に出てるのかな?

っていうか、くだらない、くだらないと言ってるのに、ずっとテレビ見てる俺はもう最低のhypocriteだ。

can't stop watching movies !!!

March of the Penguin – 8.0

This is the best animal documentary I’ve ever seen yet. Interesting; sometimes funny and sometimes sad. Brilliant and entertaining the whole way through..

Fly Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – 8.5

The starting point of jack nicholson’s awesome career as a grade A actor. Each character was interesting and the story was engaging and fun! The music was brilliant too!

Aqua Teen Hunger Force – 1.0

I couldn’t even finish watching this piece of crap. Bad animation, bad storyline, bad voice acting, bad jokes and boring characters. Stay away from this crap.

Dynamite Warrior – 5.0

Another marshal arts movie from Thailand. The stunts were pretty average when compared to the materials that tony jaa has produced. A pretty bad tony jaa wannabe movie.

American Gangster – 8.0

Another great performance by denzel washington and russel crowe. Although the story was good, it was not amazing enough to be classified as a great movie. Nevertheless, a good movie over all.

Shinjuku Triad Society – 7.0

The story was very interesting but the lack of quality in the acting department and the bad pacing of the movie kinda ruined the experience. A lot of shocking scenes too; this is a takashi miike’s film anyways so it was expected.

Pixar Short Films Collection – 8.0

It’s really interesting to watch the early works from the genius people of pixar. They seem to know how to put life in a 3d model right from the beginning!

Old School – 8.0

vince vaughn, will ferrell and luke wilson. All in one funny movie. Recommended.

A Mighty Heart – 8.2

Based on the true story about the wife of the American reported who got beheaded in Pakistan. Angelina Jolie did a great job by being a believable, and distressed but strong woman. Quite awesome.

Sakuran – 7.9

This film is a must watch just because kanno miho, kimura yoshino and tsuchiya anna got some really awesome sex scenes in it. Ok, besides that, the film is like a box of chocolate wrapped in colourful plastic paper. It’s very beautiful and pretty to look at. Unfortunately, the pacing was quite weird and that holds it from becoming a great movie.

Bourne Ultimatum – 8.3

It’s a bourne movie, what do you expect? The action scenes were very well done and it’s an entertaining action movie over all. The last part of the movie was quite boring though.

Outlaw – 7.5

The film feels original and pretty generic, all at the same time. Still a good action/thriller/suspense movie though. It just feels like something is missing and I don’t know what it is….

Surf’s Up – 8.0

Unexpectedly entertaining! A 3d animated movie about a young penguin who dreams about being a pro-surfer. Fun!

Not Another Teen Story – 8.4

This is a classic! A real 3-tonne-hammer crushing, slap-on-the-face on all the other generic teen movies out there. Funny, interesting and very easy to watch. Had a great time watching this.

Superbad – 8.8

Really, really funny movie about 3 teenagers who thinks about sex too much and tries too hard to become of one the cool guys. Some of the dialogs are down right disgusting and absolutely hilarious. This is the funniest comedy movie of the year 2007 no doubt. or maybe not because sometimes i felt like Knocked Up is better. Whatever, just watch both movies and get ready to laugh. Highly recommended.

Hairspray – 8.5

I hate musicals. But I love this one! Awesome songs and dance movies! A very fun movie to watch. Makes you want to dance baby!

Harold and Kumar Goes to White Castle8.0

Another comedy classic. Be silly and enjoy this ridiculous movie.

Black Hawk Down – 9.0

Another great and entertaining American propaganda movie that celebrates the coolness of war and the great will of the people of America to impose democracy on other people. Seriously, this is a superbly done war movie. Action movies at it's prime time yeah !!!

The Art of Seduction – 8.2

Damn this Korean romantic comedy movie is so cute and funny! Although the plotlines were dumb and unrealistic, try to leave your serious hat behind and just sit and relax, this is an entertaining movie to watch.

Rescue Dawn – 8.4

Based on the story about an American pilot who was shot down in Vietnam while he was busy dropping bombs killing children and innocent civilians. It was a very engaging and interesting movie the whole way through.

Good Luck Chuck – 8.2

jessica alba is very funny in this one. I don’t know that she can act this good! A fun movie the whole way through.

Van Wilder 2 – 7.0

I seriously think this one is going to suck hard, but it doesn’t. Watchable; and there ARE some funny moments in the movie.

Captivity – 7.0

A SAW wannabe? Maybe. elisha curhbert was awesome in this movie but the predictable story and lack of horrifying scenes makes this horror movie, not so horrifying.

Planet Terror – 8.0

This is the shit I’m talking about! Hot babes. Zombies getting blown off. People screaming in pain. Gore. Fucking disgusting zits. And most importantly, a m4 carbine assault rifle on a red head stripper! Awesomeness is real in this movie.

Garden State7.0

I think this movie put zach braff on the map. Pretty relaxing movie as the pacing was slow with some weird funny moments. Part mysterious, part weirdly comical.

Dragon Wars – 6.5

This is the most expensive Korean movie. And sadly, it sucked. Awesome CGI and special effects aside, the story was laughable and there were tons of stupid plot holes that make it hard to enjoy this movie. The CGI do look awesome though. But why oh why is the story and the acting so fucking dumb?

Street Thief – 8.5

A work of an evil genius. Follow the journey of a self proclaimed professional street thief. Forget about every other conventional movie you have ever seen, this movie is full of original style and balls. This is what we call an experimental project that results in success! Must watch!

Death of a President – 8.5

Just awesome. A movie done in documentary style about the assassination of gerge w bush and what could happen if such marvelous incident really happened. Believable and very smart. Watch this !!!

Children of the Corn – 7.0

A pretty generic horror movie, I guess. And I still don’t understand the ending.

Accepted – 7.0

Another generic comedy movie aimed at teenagers. There were some funny moments here and there, but there is absolutely nothing special about this movie.

SAW 4 – 7.2

This film is so fucking confusing. As always, the gore and the violence was awesome, but where goes the simplicity from the first movie that made it awesome in the first place? The autopsy scene was horribly terrific. Everyone in the movie theatre was like ‘”holy shit am I watching this for real?”. I think it is time for them to stop milking this once great series, and move on to the more original stuff.

The Uchoten Hotel – 8.9

An extremely well done Japanese comedy. Each character has memorable personality and it's own back story, and the director did a pretty good job to tie them together. High quality comedy from japan. There is not a single scene in the movie that was boring. This is how you do funny in a smart way. Highly Recommended.

Kamikaze Girls (下妻物語) – 8.0

This movie defines style! The acting was not so good but the whole atmosphere of the movie was weird and interesting! Fun! Ohh the colours! The tsuchiya anna - fukada kyoko combination might NOT be the best thing that ever happened in japanese cinema, but both of them are pleasing to the eyes in this movie. fukada kyoko did nothing new with her character in this movie; while tsuchiya anna really looks like a badass in this one.

Amelie From Montmarte – 9.0

This is the best french film that I have ever saw. Please go get this movie and watch it. It’s funny, it’s mysterious and it’s fun! A story about a very naive and weird girl who one day decided to do something that could change other people's life, and enjoy the experience and finally find love in the same time. You really felt attached to the main character and wants to support her journey! A must watch!

The Diary of A Tired Black Man – 8.5

Very interesting documentary/movie about the dilemma ‘good’ African-American are facing with their partners.

Resident Evil: Extinction – 7.5

The action and special effects is definitely better than the last two movies; but it still doesn’t do the great video game (in which this movie is based on) any justice. Not scary at all. Milla Jovovich, on the other hand, kicks ass. Zombie Ass.

Premonition – 7.3

Surprisingly an OK movie, keeps you interested the whole way through. Very interesting storylines. I didn’t doze off when I saw this so it must be not so bad. Sandra Bullock started to look old though.

Blades of Glory – 7.2

Overall a funny movie, but not the best Will Ferrell funny flick ever created. The Will Ferrell-Jon Heder (from Napolean Dynamite) combination was not bad, but it was not that successful either. Still managed to crack me up. Quite a disappointment though.

The Kingdom – 8.8

Another great thriller starring Jamie Foxx. This is how you do a good action movie, Hollywood textbook style. When a group of terrorists attacked a US residence in Saudi Arabia, a group of FBI agents were sent to investige the incident and with the help of Saudi police officers, they swore to find and take the culprit down. Made Ashraf Barhom known to the world. Highly Recommended.

Rush Hour 3 – 7.9

It’s sad to see your hero getting old. Jackie Chan performed outstanding action sequences in this one, despite his age. It's definitely not his best, and you will notice him being not as fast as he used to be, but he IS Jackie Chan and Jackie Chan will always kicks ass. Chris Tucker never failed to be as funny as ever; but sadly, this is the worst movie of the series, with Rush Hour 1 being the best. With that said, if you love the Rush Hour series, this third installment is a must watch!

City of God9.5

GO SEE THIS MOVIE NOW!!! This has got to be one of my favourite movies of all time. It’s that good. The story of 2 friends who grew up into 2 very different people, one a photographer and one a drug dealer. Brutal, gritty, violent, full of emotions and absolutely amazing! GO SEE THIS MOVIE RIGHT NOW!!!

Busy Week As Always

Ok. Not always. But I’m still been very busy this week. First and foremost, I got exams and I don’t know how many times I have written in here that I despise exams. While being occupied by exams, I had to figure out this ridiculously tedious and difficult experiment and try to write a sensible report when I have no idea what the hell went during the experiment. The calculation was very long and tediously stupid. It’s a good thing that they sold energy drinks at the nearest konbini.

On Wednesday it snowed like white hell, you can’t really see anything 5 meters ahead. And that day is also the day where I got my new kerosene heater. But I got a problem. I got no kerosene! So I dared the heavy snow in search for kerosene, and not long after that, my room is warm with heat from my new shiny kerosene heater!

The next day I went out surveying several available apartments because I have to get out from the university’s foreign student dormitory next year. Went to several good ones, and several bad ones; and in the end we (me and zarul) had found the perfect apartment. Good mortgage fees, not so very far from the university, beautiful tatami floorings and kind landlords helped us made the decision to choose that apartment.

On Thursday, I was invited to this meeting to discuss and give out opinions about how to better the university’s library. Well, of course the main reason that I agreed to participate in this meeting was for the food. And it’s an easy meeting. All I got to do is bad mouth the university’s library system, and I got fed with sweet tasting berry cake. It’s always about the food. Always.

Before that though, I was invited to another party by another stranger. This time, the stranger was a Japanese retiree who lived in pulau pinang for 3 years. He said the party is for celebrating the fifth year of the establishment of his海外浪漫倶楽部. Err that translates to something like this: Romantic Overseas Club. Yeah. The name was awesome.

So I was supposed to represent Malaysia. He also said that he invited another foreigner, a thai medical student to represent Thailand; but she refuses to join because her Japanese was not so good thus not having the confidence to attend such parties. So the Japanese guy asked me to PERSUADE her to come; by telling her that language is not a problem because I could be her translator and help her communicate and stuff. The thai girl lives just 2 doors away from my room, so trying to contact was not a problem.

But I was wrong. Every time I knock on her door, she was not there. I tried 3 days to contact her but in vain. I started to think that this girl does not live there anymore. And I started to remember some scenes from the horror thai film nang nak. I don’t know why. So several days passed by, and just 2 hours before the Japanese retiree came to pick me up for the party, at last I got hold of the mysterious thai girl. So I asked her to come with me to the party. And she was surprised. And she started to talk. Very fast. Man, she talks A LOT.

Now I know the reason why she doesn’t want to join the party. It’s not about her Japanese language abilities. It’s because she thought that the Japanese retiree was a dirty old pervert! In Japanese we say it スケベおやじ (sukebe oyaji). So she told me that she first met the oyaji when he knock on her door one day, telling her about his travels in thailand and how he loves Thailand, and he would like to be friends with thai people and stuff.

So she told her research partners and professors at the university about this oyaji, but her professor was being suspicious about this oyaji so he made some background check up on him. And it turned out to be that he was giving her some suspiciously incorrect information about his work place; when the professor called the place, the people there does not recognise this person. And that makes her scared so she asked her professor to talk to this oyaji and refuse politely from this offer to join him in the (also) suspiciously named ‘romance club’ party. And she thought she was the only foreigner invited. Even after refusing to join the party, the now suspicious oyaji phoned her cell phone several times. She was afraid, so she never answers the phone. And now because she does not answer the phone, the oyaji asked me to persuade her because I live so close to her.

Of course the oyaji could just come up to her room again and persuade her himself, but that would be very dangerous for him because last year, there was a case of another oyaji who harassed some Korean girls living in the dormitory, and the dormitory suddenly became more aware of pervert old Japanese men who wants some foreigner’s ass and tits. Tits and ass. I don’t know which one comes first.

But now she knew that I was coming too, she said that she would surely agree to join the party because she felt safer. That’s a nice thing to hear. Although it’s been clear now, I started to worry. What if this oyaji is a real pervert? I mean a mean fucking pervert machine? I don’t want to end up being raped by a group of old Japanese men! I want to be raped by a group of multicultural troupe of nurses and kindergarten teachers. Hmm, did I say something wrong there?

Anyways, the oyaji came and picked me up right on time. The thai girl already have other plans so she is not going. I wished I could’ve contacted her earlier. Anyways, in the car, I was praying. Oh please keep my ass hole from intruding vintage penises.

And thank God. The party is a legit one. There was no orgy. There was neither semen nor blood flowing. I forgot. These people are old! They have no semen left! Silly me!

I have never attended a party where the youngest female is 65 years old. I can tell you this; a party without young girls is a tedious and boring one. With that said, the party was still a uniquely weird experience. During the duration of the party, sometimes they invited some random club members to take the stage and gave a speech. The contents of these speeches were… weird and sad to say the least. In a nut shell, all of the speech given could be translated to this: “Come on my fellow retirees! Let us take care of our health and live longer; don’t give up on your life and find something interesting to do while waiting for your coffin to be ready.” There was also one shocking speech in which this already very drunk oyaji went up the stage to tell the whole members that 2 of their members tried to commit suicide last month. One succeeded, while the other failed miserably. That’s fucked up.

Of course I was invited to make a speech, but what can I say to these old people? To hold on and don’t die yet? I thought I was a good public speaker and am more than able to talk about any topic, but this is just too alien for me. I managed to crack only one joke. That’s pretty horrible. But each success was supported by failures right?

When the food arrived on the table, I was prepared and ready. There were tempuras. Gulatan awabi, which is DELICIOUS. Grilled shrimp. Sashimi and a bunch of other Japanese food I have no idea what the name was. I was really focused on eating as much as I could because the dinner looks very expensive. And one by one, came club members offering to pour sake (Japanese rice wine) into my glass. And every time, I have to refuse politely. And when they asked why, I almost jokingly answer it like this: I don’t drink alcohol; I drink the blood of infidels instead because I’m a jacket-bomb strapping terrorist muslim hahaha! Of course, being a polite society-person, I politely said it was a personal principle.

Unexpectedly, it was a pretty intense party. I was busy trying to get all this delicious food into my mouth while being an interpreter to the other non-japanese speaking foreigners they invited while at the same time trying to answer questions from drunk Japanese retirees about Malaysia. I talked a lot, and of course with food in all over and inside my mouth.

Party’s over and I was safely returned to the dormitory. My anus was not invaded, and I was not group-raped so I guess it was a successful evening.

Oh, I forgot to mention. Before attending the party, I went to an orchestra performance show by the akita university’s ‘orchestra’ troupe. It was awesome. I was really impressed with their skills and the pure harmony they have engineered together. Awesome. 吹奏楽団の皆さん!感動させてくれた分、ありがとう!お前らはすごい!

It was a busy week, but a rich one.

eye therapist my arse


The other day I was watching 快感MAP (a late nite tv show; not porn ok?),and there was this segment in which they introduced some rare jobs that 'pretty' women in metropolitan Tokyo do for a living. out of all the jobs they introduced on the program, I was extremely shocked in disbelief with this one particular occupation: eyelash therapist.

The main reason of me freaking out is solely because how much they get paid to just work on people's eyelashes. Get ready for this: it's a 500,000 yen per month paying job! It does not require any official license at all, just a 3 months training is required. If you work 5 days a week, from 9am to 6pm just like any salaryman, you pretty much would be getting 500,000 yen a month. Ok, 500,000 yen is like rm15, 243 so it is a HUGE paying job compared to the effort it requires.. That just fucking blows my mind.

I know this is a pathetic effort but I’m trying to compare THAT to the job of an ordinary engineer. The average engineer spends at least 4 years studying to obtain his/her degree; and another 3-12 months of training before going into the field. And for people fresh from collage, the starting salary would be around 180000 yen to 200000 yen a month. If you have a nice career record of course it would result in a nicer paying position; like some of my seniors who got like 400000 yen a month; BUT that took them 7-10 years to reach that position. And that is how things were supposed to work; at least that’s what I thought.

Comparing that to the eyelash therapist I saw on TV, she only needs a 3 months intensive training and after that, 500000 yen a month for her. There is not even a test to obtain a license because the job does not require any license at all! This has really opened my eyes to the reality of working to get paid: if you love your job, you won’t whine about other easier jobs that pays more.

So I will whine about the pathetic nature of being an engineer, still. Our salary is pretty average (no problem with that). We can’t get to higher positions because engineers work in a tight group and only the head of the department (部長) got all the credit for everybody’s accumulated achievements and worse, we always got killed in many action movies. O yes.

In action movies like the ones where the terrorist group tries to capture a facility, they always made the engineers control the machines for a while and when they have achieved their purposes, the got shot in the fucking face. Brains splattering all over the pavements and walls. I mean seriously, there is too much engineer killings in the movies!

And the audience doesn’t care if all the engineers got killed because they all look the same, wore the same dorky safety helmets and shirts, and can be easily replaced and forgotten.

Engineers, and of course programmers too, are just not cool. Hell, nowadays, even programmers are considered cool! Everyone thinks hackers and crackers are cool, the fuck with that?! These people spends most of their lives in front of the computer, using leet speak when chatting, spends a lot of their time to think about how to find the ultimate pwning moments, and drink too much soda drinks like mountain dew. They spend their free time playing dating simulation video games and ogling at plastic women with huge tits.

And they do all this simultaneously while choking the chicken. doing the five knuckle shuffle. having a hand shandy. spanking the monkey. beating the meat. popping the bobjuice. punching the clown. flogging the dolphin. exorcising the bishop. giving a handshake to russel the love mussel. feeding the ducks. petting the weasel. playing the skin flute. shizzling the nizzle. stroking the sausage. tickling the pickel. playing puppet. whacking the mole. chocking the dragon.

Oh man this has got to be my worst post, ever.

I have come to the conclusion that being an engineer is not cool at all. They’re not appreciated because they work with machines. Nobody likes them because they’re too nerdy and their social skill sucks big time because their line of work does not require much social skills and human contact.

And I’m busting a ‘gut to become one.

Ok, I’m not saying that engineers were under-paid and sucked. It’s just that the eye therapist got over-paid too much. I mean, what the fuck is an eye therapist anyways? They should pay yoga instructors, young nurses and exotic dancers more instead of the unneeded eye therapist. Just imagine a world without young nurses fresh out of nursing schools, without their uniforms and hats… it’s horrible!

Just forget what I said. I was just dizzy because I ate a whole pack of strawberries with condensed milk just now, while eating udon that I made myself. Maybe I should have not put the chicken puree into the udon soup.

musim exam dah mai dah

talking about taking chances, my chance to under-perform in the coming exams is HUGE if i don't start to be serious. i should just leave this blog alone for a while. take a day off from the crazy world of internets. try to focus on my immediate proposes in life. get an A.

and today it's 初雪 (hatsu yuki - first snow). it snowed like crazy today. it's a fucking snow storm out there. damn, tomorrow's going to be a cold one. and it is going to be like that for 4 straight months. i guess it's time to use that shop credit to buy some new winter clothing so that i won't look like a poor homeless guy anymore with my old wears.

sejok weh. tu la. sapo gak sughuh mitok akita nyo.

Zainuddin Maidin phone call with al jazeera

and people criticizes siti nurhaliza's english.

what follows is a recording of the telephone interview that Malaysia’s Minister of Information Zainuddin Maidin (ZAM) gave Al-Jazeera yesterday, moments after the Bersih memo was delivered to the Royal Palace at the close of the biggest anti-government protest in Malaysia in ten years.

aa

seriously, this is pretty fucking embarrassing. i'm not talking about his english-speaking capabilities, i'm talking about his inefficient and down right pathetic skills to have an intelligent argument with a fucking melodramatic reporter. he can't even speak with a worth while point. and the stutters? i really think our greatly respected minister of information should chill the fuck out when doing an interview with any reporter in the future, because the failings to adhere to that simple rule might lead to people thinking that the person who's talking, is a jackass.

and oh. i think the BERSIH demo was awesome. i don't 100% agree with them, but at least they have shown the reality of freedom of speech and democracy in malaysia. good job anwar, and next time, do it more peacefully.

here are the transcript of the interview:

ZAM: ….I commend your journalists trying to project, to exaggerate more than what actually happened. That, that, that, that’s it. We, we are not, the, the — and I, I congratulate your journalists behaving like an actor, that, that’s —

AJ: As you say that, sir, we’re watching scenes of protesters being sprayed by chemical-filled water …

ZAM (interrupts): Ya, I am watching, I hear, [?] …. trying to do it everywhere but in Malaysia people are allowed, to, you know [?] … Police have allowed the procession to go to the Istana Negara, you know, do police, first police, like, they handle them, they [?] them, they … the police don’t, don’t, don’t fire anybody …

AJ: Our correspondent came back to the office, sir, with chemicals in his eyes!

ZAM (speaking over her): … You, you, you, you are here with the idea, you are trying to project, what is your mind, you think that we are Pakistan, we are Burma, we are Myanmar, everything you, you are thinking …

AJ: Well unfortunately when you refuse to let people protest, it does appear so.

ZAM (speaking over her): …Ya, ya, we are not like you, you have early perception, you come here, you want to project us like undemocratic country. This a democratic country!

AJ: So why can’t people protest then, if it’s a democratic country?

ZAM (interjects at “protest then”): Ya, people protest, people then — first they protest, we are allowing protests, and they have demonstrated. But we just trying to disperse them and then later they, you know, disperse, but later our police compromise. They have compromised and allowed them to proceed to Negara. Police, our police have succeeded in handling them gently, right? Why do you report that and you take the opposition, someone from opposition party you ask him to speak, you don’t take from the government, right?

AJ: Why did you not break up these protesters –

ZAM (interrupting): Pardon? Pardon? Pardon?

AJ: Why did you not break up these protests more peacefully?

ZAM: I can’t hear you. I can’t hear you.

AJ: Why did you not break up these protests more peacefully?

ZAM: No we, we are, we, this protest is illegal. We don’t want, this, the, normally … (slight pause, then continues to talk while she interjects)

AJ (interjecting): OK, so let me return to my former question. Why is this protest illegal?

ZAM (babbling on): Ya it’s illegal protest because (AJ: Why?) we have the election in Malaysia. It’s no, no point on having the protest, we are allowing to have every, an election every five years, never fail. We not our like, are not like Myanmar, not like other country. And, and you are helping this. You Al-Jazeera also is helping this, this forces, the, you know, these forces who are not [?], who don’t believe in [?] …

AJ (seems to want to say something, but decides not to): I don’t … many thanks for joining us.

ZAM: I don’t, ya, you, Jazeera, this is, is Al-Jazeera attitude. Right?

(she doesn’t reply. In the background, the chants of the protesters fill the silence)

I Want To Hold Your Hand.... NOT !!!

perjalanan balik daripada tokyo
bas berhenti di rest area
terus aku pegi ke tandas untuk ambik air sembahyang
sebelum naik bas untuk solat
singgah sebentar kat kombini
nak beli just oren
dan juga onigiri karashi mentaiko
305 yen
aku letakkan syiling 500 yen atas meja kaunter
kakak receptionist nak pulangkan baki 195 yen
dia hulurkan tangan
aku nak ambik
tapi aku tak nak batalkan air sembahyang
aku suruh dia letak duit baki atas meja kaunter aje
terus muka dia jadi shocked
dan macam nak nangis pon ada

she must have taken it the wrong way
dia mesti ingat aku tak nak sentuh dia
"sebab aku kotor?"
"sebab aku menjijikan?"
"sebab aku menjelikkan?"
terus aku rasa bersalah

maafkan aku wahai kakak receptionist
aku telah mengubah senyuman baik mu
jadi muram dan hitam

bukan niatkan ku untuk melukai hati mu
aku cuma nak jaga air sembahyang

今日のエントリは日本語でだから、ちょっと変わった日本のアニメっぽい写真を付けてみた。どう?アニメ化された人間の顔って怖いだろう!?アニメの世界だと大きな目は可愛い性質だと設定されたが、実際の人間がアニメの目を持っていたら、こんなに怖い顔になったとは。。。という人は少なくない。

やばい。

アイデアがない!ネタがない!

最近、日本語が下手になってきた気がする。いや。「気がする」ではかくて、実際に日本語が下手になってしもうたんや!どうするんや俺!素晴らしき日本語を失いたくない!大学に来てからすごく自分の日本語が心配になってきた。なぜかって?そうだね。。大学では日本語よりマレー語の方がむしろよく使うから。だってマレーシア人に囲まれた環境に住んでいるもん。高専の時はほとんどの時間が日本語で過ごせたその一方で大学ではほとんどの時間はマレー語で。

これは決して、すべて悪いことだと言えないが、やっぱり日本語を守りたいねん!マレー語はマレーシアに帰ってからまた使いこなすもんじゃ!日本にいる時、できるだけ日本語を使います!結果的には英語、日本語そしてもちろんマレー語を上手に使えるようになりたいわけだ。

っというエントリです。

ちなみに俺は日本語だと「書く」より「話す」の方が好きです。英語だと逆。話すより書く方が好き。不思議だね。。。。

yippie my order of Dead Rising for the X-Box 360 has arrived! i know it's not the latest game out there but this game is truly awesome! if john romero had made a zombie game, this is the closest thing to the classic Dawn of The Dead movie. to all the people who love and adore zombies like me, this game is a MUST HAVE!

speaking about latest games, i've pre-ordered Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect from play-asia. i also have Devil May Cry 4, Kane & Lynch, Army of Two, Call of Duty 4, Crysis etc in my list of games to consider buying. even the new 40gb ps3 looks damn too good to be missed. damn, 2007 must be one of the best years in gaming! and of course it is also the year which i'm going to waste my life time savings for digital entertainment. hell yeah i'm getting the 40 inch sony bravia and a new high end gaming rig with crossfire nvidia 8800 GT, dual core duo 2.66 ghz FTW !!!

i also re-watched the Transformers DVD again today. oh man, this movie is awesome, every time! it's just too pornographic for the brain!

dah lama gila tak makan sushi....

the usual stuff that a normal person would do when he/she went to a sushi restaurant. they eat sushi. so do i. i don't have a lot of money, so sushi is a real delicacy to me. brilliant. went out to eat sushi with the other malaysians last friday. i just let the picture do the work of telling the story, IF there is a story to be told here.

サーモン炙り(toasted salmon)

スタミナ・サーモン(stamina salmon?)

マグロ炙り(roasted tuna)

大トロ(fatty tuna?)

satisfied customer with a bad hair day but a very full belly


me eating ootoro. the video cuts out at the best part when the battery of my cellphone runs out. note to self: always charge the phone whenever going to a sushi restaurant.

adult reading materials and toilets

i've been quite busy lately with assignments and reports; that's why i really have no time to post anything here. i have a lot of ideas and stories to told, i just don't have the time to think about it, arrange it into words and finally do the writing. but i hate to leave this blog with no new stuff.

that's why i'm going simple today and i would like to be able to achieve that by sharing my stupid curiosity about the significance of the adult materials corner and toilets in every japanese convenience store. every convenience store i went, they always put the adult corner just beside the toilet. every single store. seven eleven. sunkast. daily yamazaki. am pm. family mart. everywhere. it's funny though that a store with a name like family mart would sell porn.

so why would every konbini here, conveniently put their adult corner just beside the toilet? is it a symbolic thing? are they trying to teach the children who have free and easy access to these cheap pornographic materials to strongly associate porn magazines with taking a loooooooooong time in the toilet? i don't know. maybe i'll ask my japanese jehovah's witness friends about this matter.

anyways, convenience store in japanese is コンビニ (konbini - an adverb of コンビニエンスストア convenience store).

What Is A Terrorist?

by Jeff Cohen

ter·ror·ist (ter'er-ist) n.

1. One who engages in acts or an act of terrorism.

2. One who leads an armed group that kills civilians as a means of political intimidation -- unless he terrorizes Haitians while on the CIA-payroll, as did 1990s death squad leader Emmanuel Constant, in which case the U.S. refuses to extradite him to Haiti, even after Sept. 11, 2001.

3. One who targets civilian airliners and ships -- unless he blows up a Cuban civilian airliner, killing 73 people, and fires at a Polish freighter, like Orlando Bosch, in which case he is coddled and paroled by the Bush Justice Department in 1990, and his extradition is blocked.

4. One who leads a group that engages in kidnapping and murder -- unless the victims are Hondurans attacked by CIA-backed death squad Battalion 316, in which case Battalion architect Gustavo Alvarez becomes a Pentagon consultant, while the then-ambassador to Honduras who downplayed the terror, John Negroponte, is appointed U.S. ambassador to the United Nations days after Sept. 11.

5. One who uses rape and murder for political purposes -- unless the victims are four U.S. church women sexually assaulted and killed in 1980 by members of El Salvador’s U.S.-backed military, in which case excuses and distortions pour forth from then-U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick (“these nuns were not just nuns; they were also political activists”) and Secretary of State Al Haig (the nuns “may have tried to run a roadblock”).

6. One who designates civilians as “soft targets” to be attacked in the cause of political transformation -- unless the targets are Nicaraguans killed by Contra guerrillas armed and directed by the U.S who, according to Human Rights Watch, “systematically engage in violent abuses…so prevalent that these may be said to be their principal means of waging war.”

7. One who facilitates a massacre of civilians -- unless the victims are 900 Palestinians shot and hacked to death in the Sabra and Shatila camps by Lebanese Christian militia as Israeli soldiers stood guard, in which case Israel’s then-Defense Minster (now Prime Minister) Ariel Sharon remains a U.S. “War on Terrorism” ally after being censured as indirectly responsible for the massacre by an Israeli commission of inquiry.

japanese jehovah's witness missionaries don't like me no more

not long ago, i wrote about my encounter with two japanese jehovah messiah missionaries and the little chat we had together. the chat was very friendly, part serious, part provocative but always interesting and weird because at some part, it was obvious that i have more knowledge about christianity than them; and i was teaching them the history of christianity while wearing my pajamas on a cold spring morning.

it seemed like the morning coldness had awoken my precious little brother from it's sleep; and it keeps popping up, hard and healthy. so i had to try very hard to cover my stubborn little brother while trying to talk about religion. hard work because they don't usually get along with each other very well.

anyways, after the long conversation, and realizing that their mission has failed because it seemed like it was me who was talking all the time, the left me alone, and never to return with their holy missions.

since then, we randomly crossed path with each other on the streets several times. what i don't understand is that whenever i tried to say hello to them when we randomly met on the streets, they seemed to try to avoid me. they always pretended to NOT see me. why would a jehovah's witness be scared of a muslim like me? am i the evil demon that could sway them away from their belief and jesus? if they think that way, COOL !!!

at first, i thought they kinda liked me or something because i'm the only foreign student who responds to them. all the other students just shut their doors and went back to sleep.

it was my mistake. i forgot that they are japanese first and jehovah messiah second. their good treatment during our first conversations was just a 建前(tatemae - personality mask you put to make good image of yourselves). their 本音(honne - the real personality, thoughts) is absolutely the opposite. i don't think they like me! like, at all!

so today, i saw the other female missionary with her new apprentice waiting in a green toyota march parked in front of the foreign student's dormitory. being the friendly guy that i am, i thought to myself: yeah they tried to avoid me but what if i force a friendly hello on them and see their reaction? that would be fun!

so i approached their car, slowly, and smiling. the two missionaries who were talking (maybe practicing preaching) suddenly stopped doing whatever they're doing, and looked down like they're trying to NOT notice me coming towards them. i stopped exactly 1 meters from their car, and stood there for a minute or two, waiting for them to lift up their faces so that i could say HELLO! i waited and waited while watching these two adult female curl in fear of having to talk to me. i felt like darth vader looking at a weak obi-wan kenobi sitting beside a baby luke skywalker. it's awesome to be an evil demon!

it took them 3 minutes to notice me standing there. as soon as i saw their faces, i smiled wider and waved my hand, saying konnichiwa. they gave me this 'troubled' smile back. i got what i wanted, a fake smile, so i left them with another fake smile.

man i can't wait to go to a japanese jehovah witness church and scare the shit out of them! being evil in front of religious people is so very COOL !!!

fuck bush t shirt

with bush the war criminal of our time threatening a fucking world war 3 on the middle east, i have a great urge to find and wear a 'fuck bush' t shirt. unfortunately i live in japan and young people of japan does not give a fuck about the world news; thus the lack of anti american t shirt on their apparel store. although my reasoning is poor, i still want my fuck bush t shirt.

can anybody help? i mean help by buying me an awesome fuck bush t shirt, wrapping it up in a fancy paper, and sending it to me - kind of help? i'll be more than happy to pay for all the expenses, and i'll pay you for the trouble!

fuck bush yeah !!!

ps: i'm not anti-american. in fact, i LOVE americans! they're cool and easy going, not like the aussies, brits and singaporeans. i just think their president is a war criminal, an evil man with too much power in his dirty hands. fuck bush. fuck the us army. i wish someone made a fucking big crater out of the us army. and yeah. fuck the terrorist. and aa... fuck... aaa... cheese?
