what happen next??

mari berfikir ...

lately, other than politic issue, theres a lot of other issues that kept filling the newspaper's page...i kept wondering whats gonna happen next...after kes buang bayi...after kes nak naikkan gaji maid sampai rm800...gempa bumi sana sini...rusuhan merata2...and after no more subsidy for malaysian...what is going to be the next 'issue'??

this what so called money issue never really came across in my mind before this actually...but lately...banyak sangat yang naik...(gaji tak naik pon)...if 'oprah' said 'its not about consumerism, its all about living'...

what will happen in our country NEXT is about 'how to live??'

its even hard for us to live now....
apetah lagi nak consume consume ni kan....

so..as i grew old...this money issue dah jadi part of bahan bualan time 'lepak di kedai mamak'....sometimes i wonder how our parents manage their financial...how they manage to get us what we want instead of what we need...how??how??how??

what really worries me among all are tolls and gas...lektrik seme tu...erm..mungkin la mlm2 tido bukak tingkap je la lepas ni...lampu - mungkin lilin je rr...(mother nature will be happy with this penarikan subsidy forsure kalo seme org jimat lektrik...)

okey..lets go back to gas and toll...i still remember those days when my full tank was rm80...sangat membebankan...seminggu compem 2 kali gak nak full tanknye...dah rm160...sebulan??? rm640 dah...gaji purata rakyat yg normal like me??paham2 la bape je yg tinggal setelah mcm2 lg yg nak kna bayar...

pikir2 balik...rase nak jadi citizen denmark pon ade...they have amazed me with their system...seriously...tapi...okeyla...jadi rakyat malaysia pon ok...at least aman je malaysia nih... tapi sape yg taknak jadi one of the happiest people in the world like the copenhagen ppl kan?
(ni bunyi ayat2 kurang bersyukur)

FYI...denmark merupakan negara yg mengenakan 50% tax...(correct me if im wrong)and seme ditanggung kerajaan...hospital,sekolah, ape ntah lg...kalo dibuang kerja...government akan tlg carikan kerja utk mereka secepat mungkin...gov juga akan cuba membayar gaji until 90% just like before they re 'thrown out'...so, this is what they said(the people la)...they chose their carrier because that is what they want to do...bukan sebab gaji besa ke hape ke...sbb they live almost equally.....and they married to who they like or love without worrying brape gaji spouse mereka...skolah free...nursery rate sgt murah...university free...they even pay you for studying...(money as support system..kata mereka)..so...as ppl are living their life equally ...crime pon lesser...theres almost NO homeless...senang cite they trained their ppl to live by living...not consuming.. ok...enuf with denmark..
so, selaku rakyat biasa... i know i shouldnt be the one who have to worry about all these issues...tapi...in my whole life, i've been living with 'people' who work in private sector... so i know how is it like during recession....

hurm...this is what adult do...we worried about everything... last2...best jadik budak2 jugak... happy je...abeh kuat pon tensen sbb kna marah sbb asyik playing around je....

kesimpulan - if only i could turn back time (tak pasal-pasal)

p/s : sorry with the rojak...nih mmg takde tapis2..keluar direct dari otak...
= bila berfikir...mmg mcm2 bahasa came across...(",)

i adore you friend

i read one of my friend's blog...and without realizing it...i've burst into tears...using only simple wording...simple story...i m touched by her story....she is one of my many friends during school years...i still remember when she said that i m one of her strongest friend but i m also one of her most fragile friend she ever met...she might not think i m her best friend nor her most trustworthy friend....i don't mind it at all..because to me...she is one of many special people in my heart...speaking to her made me feel calmer...and i feel stronger each time i spoke to her...after many years of not contacting each other...whenever i feel blue...whenever i feel so upset or feel like there's no more tomorrow...other than Allah...she is the only person i can think of...weird...

i know this friend wont never know how special she is..because we r not even a close friend...she never judge me...always kept stories that i told her...never ignore me...always tried to help me when ever i need help... shes humble..shes sensitive...and she always come with a great solution and brilliant advice...

some of my other friend thought that i might hate her as she is the sweetheart to the man that i used to admire...but shes just too special for me to hate her......but i did feel 'something' at first.... and i dont really care now actually ...

she wrote about life...how important to us to have faith...to believe that Allah will guide us to the right path...how she appreciated every single thing in her life...the sun...the breeze that always bother her...the moth...even the problem that came in her life....reading her blog made me realize that Allah is always with us...we are actually the one who always not with him...she reminded me of zikir whenever i feel insecure...to believe that Allah will somehow shows me the right path...'sometimes it happen after you make 100 wrong turns'...(it so true)

dear friend...
u have this 'magic' that u dont know....i feel calmer each time i have conversation with you...i know i can be me whenever i be with you...your honesty..your tenderness...your kindness...your brilliant advice...the way you spoke out what ever you have in mind...
i just love it...
and i m so damn sure that you'll never know or expect that i appreciate you this much...

i love you friend...
i adore you...
i m happy to have you in my life...
and i don't mind at all if i meant nothing to you...

she is one of my many friend that i adore...it might be you...or it might be someone else...you can never tell who is the person that meant a lot to you until 'something' came up....

like what i've said..she is one of many...so...u might be one of em...
p/s: it's true that sometimes just by listening to someone's voice or seeing someone's smile can take away all the negative feelings...

f r i e n d s...i cherished you!!!
