Vicious Elevator

Waktu petang bila balik kerja, bila menggunakan lif di bangunan rumah aku - ketika itu lah masa yang membuatkan orang lain semua nampak salah.Kadang-kadang tak dapat aku bayangkan betapa annoying rasa bila pintu lif terbuka sebelum sampai tingkat yang aku tuju.

Semua orang serba jadi tak kena. Kenapa tekan butang lif kuat sangat? Kenapa kau bising berbual dalam lif? Kenapa kau bau hapak? Seolah-olah setiap orang yang masuk lif selepas aku itu adalah sinner.

Kadang-kadang aku rasa bersalah juga. Mereka juga bangun pagi, pergi kerja, taking shit, pukul 6 balik kerja, hujung bulan makan gaji. Untuk berfikiran macam itu, dah memadai untuk aku simpulkan sebagai selfish. 

Bila tiba tingkat 21, aku rasa lega. Esok aku berazam untuk ada positive thinking walaupun sikit. 
Sampai depan pintu rumah, kunci tertinggal dalam kereta.

Sumpah seranah dalam lif.

Hikayat Durjana Botak

Hari ini kita lihat
Anak-anak merdeka yang hatinya luka
Jiwanya membara dan bibirnya penuh cerca

Tiap kata anak-anak itu umpama gerobak laju
Sedang meluru ke tembok batu yang dibina pemimpin yang sebu

Usah ditahan walau sekali
Sekatlah walau berkali
Anak-anak ini tak mungkin boleh dibeli
Apa lagi berpaling mengundur diri

Hari itu akan tiba
Bila durjana turun takhta
Sang pengikut meratap hiba

Sax Player or Banker?

Sometime people just being too cautious in life. Then they came up with plan A and plan B. Instead of being the thing they want to be, they need another solution as assurance so if they fail the first, they would choose the second.

I really adore people who just know what they want to be. As people keep saying ; we create our own destiny. I don't really agree on that but to adore and to agree are 2 different things.

Imagine a banker who really want to be a sax player. One day he just pack his sax with some cloth, buy a one way ticket to Bali and start to play in jazz clubs. It's like rejuvenating life, starting a new phase in life ; the life that we live in honesty of what we really want to be.

Most of us say we are being realistic. Who would leave a job in a world leading bank to be a club's musician?

But the question is ; how honest we live our life?

Tragedi Seberang Prai


Kiranya sudah 4 bulan aku duduk di Pulau Pinang. Pulau yang sekelumit ini  terletak jauh di utara Malaysia. Saiznya pula tidaklah besar dan dari segi sosio ekonominya tidaklah sehebat negeri Johor.

Di Pulau Pinang ni, aku ada seorang kawan. Nama dia Nabil, berasal dari Kubang Semang yang terletak di daerah Seberang Jaya, Pulau Pinang. Minggu lepas, sesudah waktu Maghrib, Nabil pun sampai rumah aku di Georgetown. Rancangan malam tu nak pekena roti canai sekeping dua. Saje nak test power roti canai orang Pulau Pinang seberang. Dengar cerita mamak Pulau Pinang paling gangster bab roti canai.

Dari Farlim, kami bergerak ke Jelutung, menghala ke Bayan Lepas. Nak ke seberang, dah tentunya kena lalu jambatan Pulau Pinang. Jambatan Pulau Pinang ni panjangnya 13.5 kilometer. Kalau dulu masa baru-baru datang Pulau Pinang, setiap kali lalu jambatan ni mesti rasa nak bukak tingkap. Kalau sempat, ambik la gambar sekeping dua. Tapi lepas dah berpuluh kali lalu, ternyata perasaan jakun tu pudar. Bak kata orang Penang, "tak dan aih"

Setibanya di kawasan seberang, nak ke area destinasi mamak tu mestilah melalui highway. Sebenarnya aku dah lama perasan hal ni, cuma malam tu aku tergerak nak tanya Nabil.

Aku : Highway-highway macam gini pun ada simbol lembu eh?

Nabil : Oh memang. Sebab lembu banyak kat sini.

Aku diam. Seingat aku, tak pernah lagi aku jumpa lembu berkeliaran dekat atas highway.

Aku : Tapi aku tak pernah tengok pun.

Nabil hanya terdiam. Tiba-tiba si Nabil brek mengejut atas highway  disebabkan ada kereta tukar lane tak bagi signal.

Nabil : Ni hang kata tak pernah tengok lembu? Depa ni la lembu. Lembu pun tau tunggu kereta lepas dulu kalau nak melintas.

Aku setuju,

Siapa nak bawak kereta di Pulau Pinang memang kena banyak bersabar.

Nasi Lemak

The building I work have many different companies which doing all sort of different business. Approximately more than hundred of workers from different background. 

The thing is, the workers are human. Human needs food. Apparently we all do have about the same period of lunch time. 

That building have a cafe on the third level. So everyday on 1 pm the place would be crowded with people. The rule is plain and simple : first come, first serve. 

Sometime you havr to wait 20 mins just to get your order of plain fried rice. That's mean you just escape your burden of work and get into the burden of waiting and waste quarter of your precious lunch time. 

What I do is exactly the same. I would go to ground level. There's a small side cafe name "Harveys". I would have my white coffee and cold nasi lemak. Sometime I would have tuna sandwich. Got 3 tables with 3 chairs each, and my place is always at the second table as the first one will always occupied with this Indian uncle drinking coffee and reading News Straits Times. 

The point is, I don't mind eating cold nasi lemak every noon with my mind thinking of other hot delicious meals I could get on level 3. 

Well, my rule is simple too : I won't fight, I won't wait, I won't argue, I won't talk for something that aren't worth my time.
