pass us by…

passed us by...

passed us by...

there too much of things in our life that has been takin for granted. the sunrise, perfect weather, cool breeze, the beach, time we spend with someone, conversation, love, good food, a hug, a smile, laughter, a random act of kindness, spare change, help, good listener, shoulder to cry on, eye contact, a compliment, a nod, a good internet connection, a good movie, a brilliant song, holding hand, togetherness and everything that required a little of our time and seem to pass us by again and again…

maybe i’m amazed…

paul mccartney

what make a great song possible? is it the words? the melody? or whoever singing it? is it because almost every great song out there is relateble? it somehow speak our mind… expose our feelings and it give us a pleasure of expressing our emotions by just listening (and singing) to it. Paul Mccartney is the master of great song. brilliant song, that manage to capture our deepest feelings, expression and somehow can relate to almost every step of our life. he manage to conjure up a combinition of expression with simple lyric and melody. it has been a while since i listen to beatles and mccartney solo song and recently, while i’m trying to organize my mp3 files, i stumble into this old files that i got long time ago. it still one of the best song i ever listen to. thanks paul. thanks for all the great song you written.

maybe i’m amazed by paul maccartney

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you
Maybe I’m amazed at the way you pull me out of time, hung me on the line
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I’m a man,
Maybe I’m a lonely man who’s in the middle of something
that he doesn’t really understand

Maybe I’m a man
Maybe you’re the only woman who can ever help me
baby, won’t you help me to understand

Maybe I’m a man
Maybe I’m a lonely man who’s in the middle of something
that he doesn’t really understand

Maybe I’m a man
and maybe you’re the only woman who can ever help me
baby, won’t you help me to understand

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you’re with me all the time
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I’ll leave you
Maybe I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song
right me when I’m wrong

Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you

*i am amazed babe…still… 🙂

expectation high…

i got trouble sleeping this past few days… so i spend all the sleepless night watchin movies… i don’t want to feed my insomnia with a stupid, boring, lame film so for the millionth time, i watch great expectation (starring ethan hawke & gwyneth paltrow and directed by alfonso cuaron)… i still can’t put my mind on the fact that the movie was release 10 years ago and the story was written by charles dickens and release in 1861 and yet, it still relevant with our life today… with the same title, the film was written loosely based on dickens original storyline, it still hold the value that suppose to make it one of the greatest & important literture that ever been pulish. the story manage to capture almost all of what make human, human. people put so much thought on how every single things that they do need to be acknowledge while the right things to do is that they need to acknowledge it to themselves. people keep trying to find the reason for something that suppose to have meaning to them. no matter what it was, they seem to lost focus on what is the purpose to really find the meaning. dickens was trying to elaborate that fact that whatever yo do in life, the only thing that really matter was if you really understand who you really are and the meaning will surely come to you…

screen and talk II



i can’t really review much about the all the short this time around because unfortunately, i didn’t watch the first 3 short (bukanku pinta, bila pungguk rindukan bulan and anak-anak bumi tercinta. i was cought up trying to borrow my own short from my sister for the screening… i didn’t have my own copy…long story dude…sorry!) but i manage to watch “kopi kurang gula” that not actually in the program but manage to get screening time.

miss benny & said saiful ( left & middle)

i’m always prepare to answer any question regarding my short film and i can’t seem to understand the explanation from a few of the director involve in the discussion. i think the main purpose for this event is for the audience and the director to interact and share their point of view about film making. it suppose to be a simple explanation about the real intention behind the story, the writing style and a little bit about technical and the philosophies of it. director suppose to be 100% aware about what their story is all about. there is no use to feed meaningless storyline with any intention of story telling.

*i’m so buzy running around trying to get my short for the screening. didn’t manage to snap more picture for this article. sorry!


George Denis Patrick Carlin

George Carlin: People I can do without. This is my list: guys in their fifties named “Skip.” Anyone who pays for vaginal jelly with an Exxon credit card. An airline pilot who has on two different shoes. A proctologist with poor depth perception. A pimp who drives a Toyota Corolla. A gynecologist who wants my wife to have three or four drinks before the examination. Guys with a lot of small pins on their hats. Anyone who mentions Jesus more than three hundred times in a two-minute conversation. A dentist with blood in his hair. Any woman whose hobby is breast-feeding zoo animals. A funeral director who says “Hope to see you folks again real soon!” Girls who get drunk and throw up at breakfast. A man with only one lip. A Boy Scout master who owns a dildo shop. People who actually know the second verse to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Any lawyer who refers to the police as the “Federalies.” A cross-eyed nun with a bullwhip and a bottle of gin! A brain surgeon with “Born to Lose” tattooed on his hands. Couples whose children’s names all start with the same initials. A man in a hospital gown directing traffic. A waitress with a visible infection on her serving hand. People who have large gums and small teeth. Guys who wear the same underwear until it begins to cut off the circulation to their feet. And any man whose arm hair completely covers his wristwatch. All right, that’s enough of that.

The matador vs the autobahn



Spain manage to relinquish the image of being the underdog (favorite but not good enough…he he) for 44 years by defeating german with only one goal. (scored by Fernando “el-nino” Torres) Spain manage to balance out all the experience, energies, skill and tactical strategies from the get go. Villa, Xavi, Torres, Senna and Casillas manage to shine through out the competition even with the no-nonsense approach by “the puppet master” Aragones who don’t give a damn about pleasing the fan and keeping a firm grip with his strategies to use the right player to do the job. (he replace Torres with Guiza…brave move grandpa!)


The Loew’s boys should accept the defeat and the fact that the better team win the championship.

Destination – Seremban



I never been to Seremban before and last week I was there. Republic theater got an invitation to perform at museum adat in Jelebu. The museum was setup with beautiful combination of new interactive approach. The presentation on every material in the museum was combine with the element of sound, visual aid and lighting effects. (even though some of it doesn’t work properly) Republic theater perform 2 act for the event. A monolog and a sketch accompanied by poem. The organizer manage to set the date for the event to clash with pasar pagi (situated outside the museum)so that people can come and see the performance while shopping at the pasar tani.


second act

The event was great and all but we all waiting for it to end so we can go take a dip in the jeram near the museum. The surrounding was great. (except that they fabricate a pool out of the river and it somehow destroy the natural setting…tak rasa mcm pegi mandi sungai la…macam pegi public pool je) The small path, the trees, the steps and the waterfall make jeram toi a cool place to hang out. We manage to spend around 45 minute before it start to rain.




Klpac, sentul west – urbanescape



Good location, well manage and compact event. They manage to combine all kind of hot, up-to-date and relevant artsy entertainment that suit the young and hip KLites. Organizer by KLlue , the event offers everything from marketplace with booth that sell cool t-shirt, souvenirs, food (crappy) and booze, (I hate booze) street performer, mini outdoor concert, party area (kinda like mini niteclub) art galleries, acoustic sessions, film screening and theater.




You only need to pay 35 buck (for lawn stage mini concert area, the xbox party area, acoustic livehouse session and the cinetheater)and you can still go to marketplace, lakeside and main foyer if you don’t want to cough out the dough. The parking area is massive and the security was excellent. (Org RELA bersepah…siap bawak anjing lagi…tapi sempat gak ada org curi gitar…kurang ajar punya pencuri)

havin fun

Overall, the events was a success and I can’t wait for the next time.
