It is not easy to achieve that particular state of mind though. I have to admit that air ketum or any psychedelic source has no part in this affair. It took me many trips to nondescript stalls under pokok ketapang, impromptu night meetings with my colleagues, numerous trailblazing trips to the entire Bolehland of which I'd lost count of how many and tonnes of teh tarik kurang manis in kedai mamak - I forget that the world is still spinning and the sun is still shining. I was in my own world. But all those sacrifices come with a price and in my case a pleasant prize as well. I owe that glorious achievement to one particular person. Unbeknown to this guy, he was actually the sole mortal being that inspired me. He is known or used to be known in the Bloggosphere as John Jenin. Another mysterious persona - a nom de plume who has never materialized himself into this mortal world. At least for the time being. In fact I've never met him in person or got a chance to have a cup of teh tarik kurang manis with him under pokok ketapang.
This inaugural blog entry after a long gestation period is a tribute to this special persona, John Jenin. Perhaps he is another genius hiding in the underworld somewhere in Putrajaya, or a retired teacher who just wanted to share his wisdom with the free world or even one of my closest neighbors who are too shy to admit it was actually his dog that actually came up with this brilliant idea. I feel very oblige. I am very sure if he read or somehow stumble upon this entry perhaps in another millennium, he will surely feel very proud. Thank you John Jenin. If I were to win a Nobel prize for this syok-sendiri innovation - someday, I will find you and fly you to the moon!
|Before the judgement day. All set for the big show and my obliging team members aka the inventors (minus one) posed an overconfident smile prior to the winning announcement. Yours truly pretended to be cool and composed.|
No amount of practice, script rehearsal, and cold sweat could have prepared Mr OCW to face the most impeccable and unassuming visitors. Sometimes thing will go wrong and it will go wrong at the wrong and the most unimaginable moment. But at the end - Job well done. Good work guys!
Suatu pertapaan yang begitu lama.. Welcome back
In the silence you invented something. And now you come back to show off your excitement. Weldang!
kudos to u..!!!!
kudos to u..!!!!

Mengeletor jari ambe nok taip entry kat blog ni selepas lama bertapa. Insyaallah lepas ni boleh berkongsi cerita lagi Ayoh wang.
I kept my silence and zipped my lips - got IP right then I can talk :)
It's team work. Kudos to my kakis as well.
TQ. Are you still in the land of fish and chips?
Dear Dr Sam,
Yes indeed. Too much of fish and chips for me now...:D I can't wait to have my sambal belacan, tempoyak back. InsyaAllah by end of this year or early next year... -))
Good luck and wishing you all the best.
السلم عليكم ورحمة الله
Moga sihat hendaknya...tahniah dan moga Allah permudakan segala urusan Dr...
Waalaikumussalam. Alhamdulillah sdr, bijakNya di sana dan bukan di sini. Saya hanya meminjam yang bukan hak. Lama betul kita tidak bersembang dan bertukar fikiran.
Congrats Dr Sam,
btw, keep writing...
hoping not to be and to get inspired again, otherwise the inspiration keeps me occupied :)
Congrats Dr Sam!..
Einstein sans the full crown!
Ini yang dikatakan diam-diam tapi berisi ..dalam diam rupanya mencipta sejarah gemilang yg pasti menjadi kenangan manis!:)
Tahniah ats kejayaan..:)
Waalaikumussalam puan. Diam sebenarnya tak cukup tangan ke hulu ke hilir. Namun isinya pun belum banyak lagi. Alhamdulillah, kenangan ini paling manis kerana antara lainya dipertemukan dengan sahabat lama dan dapat bekerja dalam satu kumpulan.
Congratulation Dr! :)
Waaaaaahh! Tahniah DrSam! (okey,saya boleh tepuk tangan pulak kat sini punyalah happy mendengarnya) Tahniah,tahniah,semoga lepasni berjaya invent lagi macam-macam benda ye :)

Cold sweat and countless rehearsal before the event were true indeed. We made it in the end. Thanks to you as project leader that had highlighted the team members and produced a such great outcome.
