Not the usual suspect

At the time of writing, I have lost all the feeling. When I first received the unexpected but jubilant news from my significant half my feeling was beyond description. Time has eroded all my emotion. Almost. I was speechless as zillion of euphoric feeling flooding the inner me. That day I sat quietly at the dimly lit corner of the airport lounge and after so many years, I shed my triumphant tears again. The last time was 11 years ago, after the three mat saleh examiners of my PhD viva shook my hand and uttered that magic words... "Congratulation Dr Razak!"

Whether it was a sheer luck or his brain cell developed exponentially brilliant after consuming too much talk nineteen to the dozen by my significant half, my second progeny finally succeeded to line himself in his school hall of fame, following the footstep of his elderly brother three years ago. In the beginning, he was neither the bookworm stereotype nor the person who was willing to spend 5 minutes munching the numbers. Although in appearance I have to admit there is quite an evidence that he is trying very hard to look very smart. You've finally made it my son!

I have to thank my luvly jubly significant half for her countless sacrifices, sheer determination and until the final hour never loosing her hope. Where there is a will, there is a way. And of course The divine intervention more often than not, always work with the law of nature.

Alhamdulillah. Thank you love. Thank you boy. Both of you are really great. Extraordinaire!

Another important archive of time to mark his life achievement. More reason to celebrate as that was actually his double inaugural experience standing on the podium and having the chance for the glorious moment to be immortalized in this digital form for the whole universe to witness.

If minus too much indulgence getting drawn into the dark side of internet social network, or spending too much time chasing, whacking and kicking zombies on PSP, I am sure these innocent young faces will one day become an important asset to our country.

Congratulation my boy, I am proud of you!

Life apoptosis

We are made to believe all this while that the whole Indonesian Archipelago is sitting precariously on a long stretch of unstable piece of tectonic plates deep in the ocean. This plates will occasionally shift and react erratically to the unpredictable mother earth mood sway in the same way the full blossom lady does when the moon completes it cycle. The slight change in the mood will cause some seismic activities which in most of the cases we the mortal define it as a natural catastrophe. When the mother earth become moody, everybody will get to feel the tantrum. But what really caused the mother-earth's mood sway? Nobody knows exactly.

Scientifically speaking, the mortals believed that the unlucky neighboring seismic region happen to be on the notorious Pacific ring of fire. That is the impetigo or 'kudis' region of our mother earth so to speak. With that in mind, we also believe that the jutting piece of our Bolehland is spared from that mood sway thus the the nasi-lemak eating nation can take a deep breath and still can enjoy our morning breakfast without the volcanic ashes to flavour our dishes. For how much longer? Again, nobody knows exactly. Life goes on and we hung our life onto assumptions.

Let's drift back and flash our memory back a year earlier. If you still remember, last year's Winter spell in the temperate region had caused a considerably mayhem and an almost freaking Ice age phenomenon was seen in several part of the populated world. London was submerged in thick snow and Londoner for the first time in 60 years was said managed to ice-skate at the Heathrow in order to embark the airplane. The same year, Bedouin in the desert of UAE enjoyed their rare chance to play with snow and desperately learning bob-sledging on the desert when snow fell and coated the desert white for the second time in the whole century. Nobody could have imagine snow would fall on the desert - just like some of our countrymen up north experiencing the big flood for the first time (in 40 years?) .

Absent-mindedly speaking this is good as looking at what is happening around the world nowadays and the way the climate mood sway unpredictably and erratically more often than ever, this has also raised the probability of our Bolehland one day and somehow will be covered with snow and the nasi lemak eating nation don't have to drive to Bkt Cherakah anymore and pay the entrance fee to get into the four seasons glass house just to enjoy the fake snow experience.

In fact when I learned and heard about all the chaotic weather rampaging the whole planet or Ice age made a come back or big wave of Tsunamis swallowed everything on its path and creating havoc leaving behind a trail of destruction or the most recent Merapi that started to vomit its fiery gut out onto the planet inhabitants not far from our Bolehland, I almost certainly believe that our mother earth is really in critical condition. Aging is catching up fast.

I believe all those 'unpredictables' happen partly because we don't treat and respect our mother earth accordingly. Surely our mother earth returns the favour in 'kind' thus we should now start to realize that nature doesn't always plays by the rule. Naturally speaking, nature's going into equilibrium.

Spiritually speaking...do we all see?
