I'm off the line.....

The internet in my house has been down for almost a week now and it really is starting to piss me off. Got loads of stuff to do and I can't do any one of them.

To everyone who is reading this, I would like to apologize for not being able to update my blog and log in to my Facebook. I know that there are a lot of posts and comments on my page that I have not replied to. I just can't wait until I can get online again. Until then I'll be AFKing. Hahaha.

8?



Do I deny this,
when I want so very much to accept it?
Am I being fooled or am I just fooling myself?
Is it merely an illusion or a dream come true?
Is it an obstacle or a pathway to hopeful days?
Is it a change I am willing to make?
Is it a charge I am willing to take?
Will I be able to make it through?
Will it truly be you?

Suatu hari, suatu pagi...



Aku menangis diawal pagi,
Hanya tinggal aku seorang diri.
Dosa yang ku lakukan berkali-kali,
Tidak mampu aku jauhi.

Aku hamba yang tidak berdaya,
Hatiku berparut, ditikam, terluka.
Titik hitam bertompok di dada,
Aku mohon ampun dari Maha Esa.

Titisnya air mata kerana sedih,
Pilu di hati teramat pedih,
Aku mengharap air yang jernih,
Apa yang ku dapat hanyalah letih.

Apa itu kasih dan cinta?
Adakah duka dan sengsara?
Layakkah aku untuk merasa?
Sedangkan dunia hanyalah sementara.

Aku ingin menjadi insan,
Yang membawa satu harapan.
Menanam pokok di sebuah taman,
Membina hidup dengan iman.

Keikhlasan aku bercelaru,
Akibat lidah yang suka menipu.
Hanya berdoalah yang ku mampu,
"Ampunilah diriku."

"Daily Routine"

I woke up this morning feeling lightheaded. But just like everyday I took my shower, ate my breakfast, packed my bags and walked down the street to the bus stop. It was a routine and one that I have never seemed to fail at doing.


The bus came late today. In fact it didn't come at all. While I was walking on my way to the office I realized that the streets were empty. Devoid of any vehicle or any sound. As a matter of fact no single human being was in sight. Could I have been dreaming? If so, then it sure is the worst kind. I screamed and shouted, calling for anyone to hear me. But all I could hear were echoes of my own shaky voice.

I arrived at the office around noon. Took the elevator to the ninth floor and headed towards my cubicle. I sat down and tried to digest what was going on or what had happened to make every single human being disappear. I was afraid, thinking of the possibility that I would be alone forever. Everyone's gone. The bus driver. The mail man. The neighbours and their pestering kids. The clowns. The newsreader on television. My boss. My friends. My family.

I went back home in the evening. It sure was a long and cold walk. I could have just taken a car or even a bus and drove back home. But I thought it was better for me to just stick to the routine. Maybe it would help me keep my sanity. Yes, going one whole day without speaking to a person really does things to your mind.

I reached home and like always took of my clothes and had a nice cold shower. I made spaghetti for dinner. I savoured every bite as if it was the last meal I would ever have. Who knows....maybe I was merely a setback. Maybe I got left behind. Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to go to where everyone has gone to. Maybe everyone would come back and say that it was all a hoax. Maybe I truly am alone.

I went to bed at 11 pm as usual. I blocked my mind from thinking of what might be in store for me tomorrow.

There was no point in doing so. I could never be certain of where the story would lead me. But I guess until the end comes all I can do is stick to my routine.
