30 Nov., abah.


i hav to do dis way earlier, for i dun thk i can survive the nite. i am so tired. and i need to crash early. rmbr when ur arnd, we - ur kids - were eager to pick the phone up and be the first to wish u? and me, being the eldest, i never fail to be the first. u'd go gigglin away and like 'abah dah tua..'. and u thanked me for the tot.

thgs r difrnt now. so difrnt since u left us behind.

abah, Selamat UlgThn Kelahiran, abah. kalo abah ada, u'd be 68 now. i knw, ur arnd - in our heart, our mind. and so.

thgs r a lot difrnt now, bt the love, the tot of u will always remain the same.

along syg abah. so much it hurts.

if u.

if u ever wake up, and think dat no one needs u - i do need u.

if u ever wake up, and think dat theres no love - i'll always love u.

if u ever wake up, and cant find ur purpose - i'll hold a candle and help u find it.

if u ever wake up, and dun knw who and y ur - i can tell u.

if u ever wake up, and dun knw y u bothered - i'll remind u.

and pls remember - and let me giv u reasons.


i knw b'coz i've seen ur footsteps, s'times the roads gets so dark and u forget wat light was like. i knw, its easy to forget dat its jst the end of the day - not the end of u.

and if u'd let me walk wit u, i'll tell u dat it doesnt matter who u walk wit - as long as u walk dis road - well.

u may call dis life watever u wish to call it. an adventure. a journey. a trip. a road. a challenge. a call to arms.

be it watever u call it, we will call it history.

one day.

watdya want?

ur unsure of wat the next step is. do u carry down the same path, again and again or u find a new one? if u go down the same old path, u'd go grumbling . and complaining. and if u try a new one, ru ready for it?

wat do u really want?

no one knws wat they really want. we listen to the voice inside our head and tells us wat we want but often, its wrong. we shldnt be listenin to the voice.

we shld be listenin to the silence.


i want to listen to u. i wanna open the door. i want u to tell me ur story, like u used to - in ur own words. i wanna share mine either, coz i got a lot to tell. in my own words - not for other's. 

the books dun do it justice. and so does ur frens. or ur judgment, too.

i want u to mean wat ur say. i want u to show me. coz i am tired wit all those words, and words r nthg to me.

and i cant hear u. unless u speak.


i will always remember you.


the ppl u knw. the ppl u knew. and the ppl 
u not sure if u knw em anymore.

wat u've learned. 
ur memories. stories.
joy. sadness.

all these thgs, - these ghosts
come together to make up
nearly all of who and wat ur.

the last part of ur soul.
ur spark.

dat is beyond ghosts.

Saturday, November 22, 2014


the moon. and the stars. they will guide u, but its ur heart
dat'll show u the way when u get there.

u gotta trust the sky.
and trust urself.

how strong ur.

u called me over when i was young and told me u wanted to see how strong i was. i was eager to impress u. and thus, i obliged. u told me to put my hand in front of my face and try to keep it there, wile u tried to pull it away.

i tot u was doin so damn well as i strained against ur arm. until u let go. and i hit myself so hard i ended up on the ground wit a bleedin nose.

u helped me up, after u'd finished laughing, and said, 'let dat be a lesson. trust no one.  no one at all. except u, urself. not even me.'

despite wat happened, there was more love in dat sentence than a thousand bed time stories.

i miss u, dad. alfatihah.


y do u do wat u do? is it to impress those ppl around u? ur mum? ur dad? ur family? ur frens? ur lover?do u do it to make money? to live in a nice house and buy stuffs u want? to get thgs dat cant be scratched?

or u simply do it bcoz u love it. bcoz it lets u finish ur each day wit a broad smile on ur lil face and a good tot in ur mind.

'today i did the best i cld do. not bcoz i had to. bcoz i wanted to.'


wanna knw wat sadness is made of? try wakin up at 3am in the morn., alone in ur room while browsing ur notes wit tonnes of assignments to do. u cant do it in the day light coz ur workin. at nite ur so lembik all u knw is to jump into ur boxer and crash. crash means u cant really close ur eyes since u knw ko ada byk benda nak buat. u knw u can quit at anytime at all, but then again - u cant afford dat. time is runnin short and ur no younger everyday. 


i jst feel like to write dis.

 life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades.

maybe if i say it often enuff i wld believe it. its hard to do sthg and keep failing at it. dis, shortens life, definitely. 

life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing grades. life is more than passing is more than passing grades.

PBIM2014? nay, its Ipoh International Run 2014.

16 Nov. 2015, 6.45am.

i did dis again - it was my second Ipoh International Run 2014, today. i remember participating the same event coupla yrs back. but dis time around - i am on my own. running alone,  is completely a different feeling - rather than u hav frens to share  the surging adrenaline wit. but its ok - i managed to finish it up good.

personal time - kinda tak manis to compare wit my We Run Sitiawan  months back. it was like 1hr 18mins for 10km. and out of anthg at all - seriously aku tak perasan yang the medal wld be given to the first 200 runners, in Men Open. and yeap - being at dat particular time, watdya expect? 

aku bawak balik sijil je. and a lil bit of hati nan membengkak. hahaha

nah, i wanna be realistic in here. malas nak bermuka2 and full of hypocrisy. mmg aku lari to get the medal. it'd be a great motivation for me, God sake. to be better. to wanting for more. and ofkoz - aku lari utk kesihatan, utk kurus, utk kill time, for sort of diversion.. wat else? u name it cpt. they r all in the list, trust me. huhu

but then again - aku ok je. last time Ipoh Run yg sama jgk, aku dpt sijil je. shldve kept in mind dat they r providing medal for the finishers, as allocated. again, as allocated. so kalo ko lari dlm kategori yg ramai org, and ko number 500 - ko still nak menjerit2 tak dpt medal?

mmg tak lar.. hahaha

but i feel good. seriously aku enjoy. running in the early morn., wit thousands of hypermanic ppl. running lintang pukang mcm kamben kuar kandang. i love dat feeling. and lari ramai2 mcm ni ko tak rasa penat. sekejap je dah settle - w'pun ko lari terkedek2. beza dgn lari sorang tiap2 ptg tu. menangis sementara nak abes. 

ok. itu melampau. 

and btw - IIR2014 seriously tenggelam since PBIM2014 ari ni jugak. bygkan 60k lari on the jambatan. sah2 berapa ketul je yg stay back lari kat Ipoh neh. and i read somewhere ramai yg bengang and kensel lari for IIR since clash, and they chose PBIM instead. me? ermm.. since aku awal lagik dah reg IRR, kowser la nak refund bagai. w'pun event tertunda few months (since Sultan Perak mangkat), gigih aku lari jugak. cuma rasa pelik sket kot. its shld be IIW2014 kot - Ipoh International Walk 2014, since ramai yg muda2 mekap mcm nak pi Mydin, wit beg besar2 mcm wtf lari dr rumah, wit kasut mcm nak pi menjalang.. jalan saing ramai2 pegang tangan. eh, ko pi pasar or ko lari? again, lantak la. since dorg byr kot. kan?

and the rest of the day, aku spent at home. ngadap notes, assignments, jurnal, SPSS and all those shytes. i was tired, tp bila baring mata terkebil2 tak bley tdo. i hope i'd go crashing better jap lagik.

for those yg run for PBIM2014, congratulation. and for those yg run for IIR2014 - tahniah jgk lah. and yes - tahniah to myself, as well. 

i hav nthg to prove to anyone at all - except to myself. 

see, aku Finish.

pic seblm lari.
belakang tu jamban bergerak.

note to myself;
sila jeles.

life is..

life is a journey.

so walk and pick thgs up as u go. nthg too heavy. nthg too lite. wiegh each item against ur will, ur soul and if it measures up - then u take dat wit u. and if it makes u weary or it loses its significance - then maybe its about time for u to leave it behind for someone else to find. we never knw it'd do good to others.

once decided, keep only dat which u need. and move on.

four thgs.

remember to learn four new thgs, everyday.

somethg about urself. somethg about the ppl u love. somethg about the world. and somethg about a stranger around u.

and u'll never go wrong.

wats ur gift?


back when i was in school, i hate reading (er, i still am.. i think). i mean - thgs change. i really hav to read nowadays and i hav no choice seriously. and how ironic it is, now dat i am readin i still got sorta bad grades. haha.. back when i was in school, i cld do all week read nthg and got-in-ur-face results. well i gez karma really is a bitch. it will get u eventually.

i hav papers in BM. i read each of the antalogi's though. the ones wit sastera in it, puisi, sajak, cerpan and all shytes innit. where they r shorter and simpler than the novels. and being around in the fmly, i had been served wit patriotic novels to no end, and twisted wtf.. i rather not say.

i never finished any of the books. y bother when u can get the essence in some reference books? kan? i rmmber throwing kapal terbang kertas from our second flor - jst bcoz it was boring and wit hope of doin so - the story wld be so much cooler.

but dammit. it din.

how do they xpct stdnt to actually read and suddenly outburst wit the needs to xpress their patriotism when they failed to get the stdnt's attention in the first place? i can see dat clearly now - now dat i am teaching as well. u gotta be interesting hell yeah, to pull all the attention rite on board. kalo ko ngajar SS and mcm gampang, ko xpct stndt nak pay attention? mcm tu? mmg tak la.. 

s'time i believe dat our education system looked good on the paper, but they certainly forget to include the human in it. the anomalies of human creation itself.

and there i go again. crapped crapped crappity crappier crappiest crap.

and btw - i i hav frens who were talented in various ways. one who pinned down her arse and read for the longest hrs in the whole wide world. i hav one who can stand hrs crunching numbers and wats not, one can read all and remember details, one has nice singing voices and hiding it, one can speak in public really well and make ppl jst go wit watever not the idea is and u cannot get back at, i hav a fren who can make jokes and u feel like so happily ever after wit him around, one loved history (euw) and hav it for breakfast and so and so.

i tried to find mine. i mean - my talent. the only one i found so far is - i knw how to write. a bit. itu pun not all the time. which s'times is annoying. and when i was in school, i tried to write karangan and essays and masuk all sort of pertandingan - and i never win a thang. seriously. i remember took a place in pertandingan menulis karangan in my local library. i tot i write it good. my full effort. and the result was - mine was not even mentioned by anyone at all. and the gal dat i hate the most in the class, menang. i walked back home crying. i was 7yo back then.

erm, i am always average. nver the best. sometimes the worst. i gez dats my gift, eh? :-/

i pity u.

i pity u.

u live in a world where almost everyone has somethg bad to talk about u, a world where u hated the ppl around u (yet u never learn how to treat others well), but u hav no choice. a world in which no one to tell u how wrong u can get, a world of fake in which u tot ur the best, the brilliant-est, and every shld comply wit ur so-called morality, ur the king. or queen? where ppl shld be listening to u, go along wit ur creepy tots. u, u dun dun realize dat ppl dun giv a fcuk wat u do, they do not afraid of u, they do not listen to u. u think u hav frens but all ur frens r smiling in front of u yet talking shyte about u - coz yeah, u did the same to em all, too!

a world in which ppl, hav their own lives, and dat does not involve u. a world in which u think u own but ur owned.

and u still cant read between the line.

i pity u.


some day it seem like it'll never end. never, at all. like theres jst to much to do.

the reality of the situation is - u'll never be finished. if u finish all the work u've got to do  - u'll find even more to do. and u can never really reach dat end.

until dat day, when u really gone. for good.

so accept dat. be ok wit it. find the peace ur lookin for, in the now. dis is the moment.

right now. every now.

Thursday, November 6, 2014


dear u,

lets pretend we r artists and everythg we feel, touch is somethg new to be proud of. lets take our imaginary frens on a double date and ditch em in a movie and hope they'll get along while we smooch on the sidewalk. lets take the dream u mumbled in ur deep sleep and paint a child's nursery.

and if we dun finish today, we've always got trow.. sigh.


kill u.

never leaving ur house, will kill u. stayin put at where ur and being afraid, God sake will kill u. pecking at new notifications icon on ur social media platforms of choice, cycling thru em like a series of surreal bloody fridge doors - dat mght contains sthg better since u last looked - dis is wat will kill u second by second, until u realise u hav none left.

ur far more likely to die from fear and apathy, from not having lived and fulfilled the multitude of promises dat u make urself, each nite before u fall asleep - then anythg else.

duncha think so?


one day, when i'm finished - i'll look at u and say, "here r all the thgs u said i cldnt do.", and seeing u telling others "there r so much i wanna say.. i wanna tell.. i wanna do..".


wat makes u happy?

i cld die as a happy man, wit dis.

wat makes u happy, really? some other ppl? u urself? tell me. i wanna knw.

frankly speakin - its subjective. its how u see thgs. and its wat u want in life, seriously. how u see urself, and the world ur living in. some ppl they need all the big thgs in life to make em happy. some of us cling on others - how others treat us, wat others thnk of us - to make ur day better. and some of us appreciate everythg thg - every lil thgs around us, coz they believe those r thgs u can hang on to - to make us happy.

as for me - i used to cling on others, so dat i'll be happy. i believe the more expensive, the better looks, the more good words ppl showered u wit - the happier i'd be.

and i gez i am moving away from dat, gladly. bit by bit. i knw how hard it is clinging on someone, hoping for others to make u happy. sometime it happens. but most of the time it crushed u like hell. i knw how all those beautiful thgs, expensive thgs put u at the top of the world (and thus make u happy), but it wont last long. definitely. and i knw, too - how all those beautiful words showered on u every now and then (let alone how sincere it is - dats sthg else).. those r just words. words can come easy. and words sometime mean nthg at all. wait till ur no one, and no one will put all those beautiful words on u - anymore. 

they even forget about ur existence, God sake.

thus i started to believe in all those small, petty thgs dat makes u happy. all those unrecognised, left alone thgs around u, in fornt of u and u never address em properly.  a jar of Nutella wld me happy (i knw - someone said to me 'ur so cheap Shah! a Nutella?'). peanut butter. beautiful smiles around u. a nice, warm greetings starting ur day. simple text messages, even replyin to ur earlier text pun tak pe. a simple short calls - asking 'how ru' sort of thag. a bright day - so u can run u shyte out. or every single thgs made easy by Allah Taala. ur works ended up well. went to work while ur hating it - knwing others wldnt get the chance doin thgs ur doin. and a lot more.

i found ease and calm in em all. its all about thgs and u, urself. its about all those simple, petty thgs. y bother expecting others or all those big thgs to make u happy, while u can do it urself? for eg; smile to others and greet em well - and by receiving the same - wldnt dat makes u feel better? i gez i can giv u tonnes of examples, if u want to. thgs dat u knew it urself, but perhaps - u never address em well. u knw wat i mean.


btw, marking dat start dis morning. awal2 pg lagik aku dah kelam kabut dgn arrangement taklimat for the markers. Me Cheah awal pg dah smpai. Mr Hari and Puan Aini my TP(P&K) awal2 pg dah non-stop telefom aku tnya dis and dat. and thus - aku berlari2 anak mcm tak cukup lantai..

and now baru aku dpt some time to sit down and easy my heals. seriously aku rasa nak tido je.. sigh.

and assignments? duh.

i'm back wth.


 o yeah!

assalamualaikum. hi. hello!

erm, seriously i wanted to write. ok - u've been hearing dat for few times now. but yes, i mean it. seriously i mean it. but then again - i kept facing the same ol'shyte - u wanna write, u sat down, u tried to put thgs in word, u went half-way, and it got stuck somewhere in between. thus, u stopped. and dats it. or u write a draft, and kept it aside for a lil while - wit the tot of u mght want to get it posted real soon - i mean, real soon - but it ended up staying there, for ages. 

by the time u got the mood to go thru it, rasa mcm nak post an updates - only then u realized cerita dah basi. obsolete. ko baca pun mcm nak muntah. let alone ppl out there.

i mean - kalo ada org baca la..

so - wat i've been up to for the past 2 mths? seriously - work, study, run. run, work, study. and panjat bukit. on the weekend, on the weekdays kalo cuaca ok. and rajin.

work? its getting tougher. dulu aku siap bley tersengguk2 kat tmpat keje since sejuk and like.. byk keje dah siap (or perhaps, tadak keje sebnrnya). tp skang - i've been complaining tak cukup tdo. masuk je ofc by 730am - aku dah strat doin thgs. kelas, tutorial, keje2 S/U Peperiksaan (SUP), klinikal, stdnts, soalan, exam budak2 etc. and by the time aku tgk jam - its alrdy 5. 

5 means 'wtf ur doin in the ofc now!' kinda thang. its running time. or off naik bukit. i've been runnin a lot lately. for the past 2 mths, i mean. aku dah join 2 runs now - tp dkt2 lah. and aku ada like 3 more to go.. till end of the yr. still, aku dok stroll2 the web tgk mana2 run event yg bley aku join, and senang nak reg online je. my target? aku nak shed some weight. itu je. i found lifting wts making u bulge alrite, tp selagi tak hlg berat bdn yg giler babi le-lbey neh - wats the point? aku tak nak havin muscle ere and there, tp gemuk. euw. 

so aku stop gym for a while. bukan completely stop - aku still doin it, at home. rite lepas bgun tdo, and a bit seblm Maghrib. and in between - aku run. at least 7 or 8 km per day. for the sake of losing weight. aku join event pun bukan nak kejap perfect time and such. ofkoz it is sucha good motivation, aku jst nak push myself doin thgs i've no confident of doin before. and aku nak kurang brt bdn. 

and the medal? wow. dats the best part. hahaha

after all - specialist yg dah bising as if aku ni 'walking time-bomb', since cholesterol level dah giler tinggi. imagine  mula2 7 sthg. after 3 mths, naik 9! she wanted to put me on med., but i refused, askeing for more time so aku cld do sthg about it. she referred me to dietician. and gez wat? u think i wanna go? blerkgh. so aku altered my tabiat mkn, aku took all those supplement, apple+celery juice like everyday, oats and oats, and oats. and aku run. so pagi tadi dah amek fasting lipid profile. hope for the best. 

or else.. heh.

study - makin teruk. seriously speakin Semester ni mcm taik sket. aku kurang fokus. asgment byk, sumer pyh2. ramai dok komplen nape aku tolak HLP last time, nape aku tak smbg full time. they do knw nthg, so aku wldnt mind. i've put my priority rite - my mum, my fmly. study bila2 bley. mana2 pun bley. antara ko nak tak nak je.. i believe i alrdy had wat i want in life, so tak pyh terkejar2 nak smbg sgt kot.. so aku buat takat mana mampu.


hahaha.. dah byk paragraph eh? dr aku tadi duduk dpn laptop, tulis sket and delete. and then gegolek atas katil pandang screen laptop dr jauh, smpai laptop abes bateri. and now i am doin it and dah dpt few paragraphs, eh? hahahaha

ok lah. asgment tak siap. and aku dah ngantok. ko rasa mana yg penting?

definitely. aku tdo dulu! see u guys, around. sleep tite yo!
