Bruno Mars.

Ever heard of the song Just The Way You Are? If your answer is no, then please, do yourself a favor and just jump off the cliff. Seriously. The thing is that, since this song came out, a huge number of female population out there wants Bruno to be their partner. Yucks.

Just The Way You Are is just another chick-flick song written to attract his target-audience, who? All you girls out there of course! (and well of course, i'm no exception.tee hee.) If you really listen to it, this song ain't much different if compared to One In A Million by Ne-yo. (again, if you haven't heard of this, find the nearest building to jump off.) Honestly, how would you know that partner of yours is the "one in a million"? Have you been dating ninehundredninetyninethousandninehundredninetynine girls before you found this one? No. So there, bullcrap.

Back to Bruno, now, just last year, he made a song called Grenade. (needless to say, if you haven't heard this one, please just stab yourself) Now this song right here, is one of those typical "lautan-api-sanggup-ku-renangi" types of songs. Take a lighter, burn one of his fingers, if he rejects, then he's lying. (obviously) and if he lets you burn it through, you might want to check if that's really him and not some kind of ghost. He mentioned that during the first kiss, she had her eyes wide open, now if i were to expect someone to close their eyes, i'd do the exact thing. But instead, he knew that she had her eyes open. Were you peeking, Bruno?

If you've been reading up to this point, it would seem as though i'm condemning Bruno Mars. Let me just make it clear that i'm not in any way a hater of him nor his works. I listen to his songs as well, and i must admit, it's pretty addictive.All i'm trying to convey is, do not push every men to be of the same traits as Bruno Mars, it's just not right. Once you've said it, it puts a fine line to the guide of expectations on the opposite sex who's trying to approach you. There's a thin line between adoring and expecting. Beware.

Last but not least, saying every guy should be like Bruno Mars is like saying every girl should be like Megan Fox. Ouch? Exactly my point.

you're gonna make mistakes, you're young.

In life,it is always a journey. Say,from one end to the other,from point A to point B,from here to there. And often in that road,we'd find a challenge,rarely do we ever pass a street with no obstacles.

Often we mistake these curve balls, we take it as a pit-stop, worse even, we don't even have the guts to get back in the race. We fear what our next step would be. There are things in life that we tend to overlook and just pass it a little too fast to realize, it is these small views that has shaped us.

Sometimes we learn things the easy way, but most of the time, the lessons well learned are those learned the hard way. Experiences are life's little gifts, treasure it.

A handicap we must overcome.

This one is dedicated to all you English speakers out there. Before i start,let me just make it clear that i'm not pointing this to any particular person. Second, i know there are bigger problems and worse cases out there, and this ain't even a life-and-death situation, but it does matter. Third, as you're reading this, please just accept it as a process of learning. If you find any error, kindly correct me. I stand corrected. :)

So here goes. Stop using "thats mean" i repeat, STOP USING "THATS MEAN"! Okay, so that was just me, over-reacting. But anyways, do you know what i'm trying to convey a while before? If you do, then that's utterly awesome, but if you don't, then i'm afraid you're one of those error makers. Sorry.

Here's the thing. If you look on facebook, blogs, or other social websites, people tend to say things like "mama dah balik,thats mean i can going out" (fictional status,made up and not meant to offend anyone.sorry.) Now i know it's supposed to be "i can go out" but that's another story. What i'm trying to point is the part where it goes "thats mean i can going out", found the error? No? "THATS MEAN i can going out". Now you see it, don't you?

The thing is that, it should be THAT MEANS. Because if you say THATS MEAN, it does not just changes the meaning, but it also is grammatically wrong. There's no such word as THATS in English, it should either be THAT or THAT'S. Get it?

So if you were to write it as THAT'S MEAN, it would totally change the meaning of the sentence. It would mean that you're saying "that's cruel" because "mean" is a word with two meanings. One being the answer for something and the other being cruel. So if you were to translate "mama dah balik, that's mean i can going out", it would be "mum's home, that's CRUEL i can going out". The mum's back and suddenly she's cruel? The hell?

And well, THATS MEAN just have no particular meaning i could list or elaborate about. So there you have it. A simple post that hopefully would make me stop getting annoyed every single time i hear people saying "thats mean". Don't get me wrong, i get annoyed not because i think my English is ever so perfect that i don't want to hear any mistake, but because it's a mistake that shouldn't be made. If it was made, it should be corrected. Just my thoughts.

Maybe it's not a big deal seeing that no one really cares nor realize it, but seriously, if you're a TESL student, small grammatical errors DO matter. It's a big thing for you to just let pass when you hear someone commit it, what more for you to do it yourself. Awkward, just saying.

Anyway, i've been meaning to tell people of this error, but hey, i can find no gentler way other than through my blog. I can't just go around yelling,"Hey, you're doing it wrong! It's supposed to be THAT MEANS!". That wouldn't be so nice now, would it? So yeah, the next time you're going to say it, say it right.

Thanks for reading, have a great day. :)

p/s: i overused capitalization, i know. and somehow this post doesn't sound much like me.pffft.

Japan/Asia/World,be safe.

Today went well i guess. Not very exciting or extraordinary,but a simple news made my day. I felt so much relieved that Awis, my friend's brother is safe. More than that, he's even able to go online and everything, so i'm guessing he's doing well over there. Alhamdulillah. :)

On another point,another quake struck Japan today, 11a.m.(Malaysia time), at this point i just don't know what to expect. But whatever it is, i hope that nobody i know is gonna be hurt or affected badly by this disaster.

Japan,my thoughts and prayers are with you.

it's starting to scare me.

with all the chaos going on around about the tsunami that struck Japan,what more,it is violently affecting other parts of the world as well,it maybe a little bit too late for me to be wishing well and to be hoping that there won't be any fatality and such.

at this state of situation,i think all i'm able to say is that Malaysians and Muslims out there,my prayers are with all of you.i hope to hear good news of your being.

p/s:this post is written merely after i heard the news that my friend's brother still couldn't be reached.Awis,i hope you and all other Malaysian students are doing well.

compliments never kill.

i have zilch idea i could even make up to reason with neither others nor myself to explain why i haven't updated for awhile,but what i can say is that a lot of things have changed.seriously.

i'm used to having this blog as something very personal to me.it's hard to grasp that it now has 100+ followers.i don't know if you followers are really readers of my blog,but thank you for making the figure grow,i appreciate it.really,i do.

moving on,like i said,this blog for awhile,had been the place for me to write a lot of stuffs.from those good times,to the shits i had to go through to get to where i am today.i've written a whole lot that upon re-reading it,i personally think you guys have a lot more idea about me than i'd ever have of myself.

now,there are reasons why i kept it to myself for so long.my stand may have changed,seeing that i have made this public and everything,but my reason stays.i blog for myself,not to please nor to take care of anyone's feelings.maybe along my posts and writings,there'll be a few that might slap you in the face,for that,i'm utterly sorry.just know that i write for myself,not for you,you,or you.

my blog is my comfort zone.call me anti-social or loser for whatever reason you may find.trust me,i won't care.so if you ever happen to be offended of my post/posts,then i suppose the one time apology should be more than enough.i don't feel the need to apologize to anyone for being honest nor for being true to myself and others other than you.

on another point,for you beautiful people who have said nice things about this humble blog of mine,thank you.thank you for being the reason i'm still writing and for making it known that i'm heard.thank you amazing people.

p/s:what's in here,stays in here.thank you.
