Kamsahamnida! Mahalo! Arigato gozaimasu! Thanks! Terima Kasih!

From Khadeeja to all the Uncles and Aunties who took time out of their busy Saturday noon to attend her birthday party;

“Yabi yabi!” —> This means thank you in her language (she says yabi yabi for everything…)

Will post up the pictures when we get ’em from the wonderful photographer.

To my dearest daughter

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose,

Or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,

In secret, between the shadow of the soul.

I love you as the plant never blooms

but carries itself the light of hidden flowers.

Thanks to your love, a certain solid fragrance,

Risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how or when or from where.

I love you straight forwardly without complexibilities or prides.

So I love you because I know no other way;

that this;

where I does not exist, nor you,

So close, that your hand on my chest is my hand,

So close, that your eyes close as I fall asleep…

– Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda

Happy Birthday Baby!!!!



Possibly the end…

… for Jason Castro. After the big psychic prediction by Paula, I think Jason just lost it. Who wouldn’t, right? So kesian… I was so (and still is) hoping for a top 3 male ensemble… Syesha will be safe due to the fancy ‘waterworks’ she did and that speech about doing research and the civil right thingy is just a classic! Way to go bottom 2 girl!  She’s really lucky. Every week in the bottom 2 and now she’s in the top 4. And that’s how she will get to the top 3 as well… Watever it is, it is now obvious the finale will be David vs David.

No particular review this week. I’m still angry with Paula for last week and I’m particularly sad about Jason’s own defeat this week. I’m just glad he lasted this long…

This used to be my playground…

All i can say is that I’m GLAD I went back to TKC on 1st May for OGA day. It’s been 5 or maybe 6 years since I last set foot on my old school. I met friends I haven’t seen for a long time and I really miss those crazy ladies. And I never thought I’d say this but I actually miss the school too…. Not to waste your time reading. A picture is worth a thousand words… Please click here to check on the pictures. I’m having problem with the available space to upload stuff here… Enjoy the pictures!!! Next post; I did 1500m around padang sekolah… And I did it MY WAY!!!!

Q&A session

A lot of people ask me a lot of the same questions. Here are my answers to some:

  • Why do you think David A is boring????? He’s good whaaaat!

IMO, he is definitely a good singer but I find him NOT interesting because that is already a known fact that the boy CAN sing. I don’t find myself getting excited to see what sort of arrangement he will use on a song. Or how different will it be this performance… He’s like a male Mindy Doo…. They are too perfect for AI. Anyways, it’s my prerogative whether I like him or not.

  • Baby K’s invitation is funny… Why write?

I thought it’s more personalized when we write it. Your hand, pen, paper… It feels very genuine and sincere… And also because my pens were about to go spoil if I don’t use ’em. 🙂

  • What does Abu do?

He is a production engineer (and has been for almost 5 years) working with SATO Malaysia. It’s a Japanese company that produces bar code labeling machines. It’s located right in front of Federal Highway in PJ. It’s that big white building next to Naza showroom (btw, Al-Fatihah to Tan Sri Naza)…

  • How come you have a lot of time updating your blog?

I don’t actually. I just type really, really fast. Heeheehee… Also, if I don’t update it regularly, I’ll get a few emails and smses to remind me to update my blog. 😉

  • How many cats do you have?

3 for now… Mancis, Comel and Puffy. It used to be like14 cats but my sister took the lot to her place and left me with 3.

  • You always make some small notes to ‘Cat’. Who is Cat?

Cat is my evil twin. You can checkout her blog.

  • When are you going to post up the recent OGA visit photos and stories?


  • Who do you think will win AI?

When AI started, I thought David A will definitely win the whole thing hands down. Now, I think David C might… But who knos… Suddenly Syesha wins the whole thing! We might never have guessed….

  • Where did you get the name ‘Khadeeja’ from?

From a dream actually. I dreamt of a small girl with curly hair whose name was Khadeeja… Seriously… No joke…

There’s a lot more questions but let’s leave it to that for the time being… I will post up the OGA visit soon (maybe tomorrow…). Till then…. Ciao!
