Daylight - Playing for change

Originally this song is sung by Maroon 5.. but i saw this version and really loved it!! It features musicians from all around the world performing the song in the streets. I still remember seeing that aboriginal man playing didgeridoo in Sydney to be exact at the Circular Quay while waiting for our ferry cruise. 

The video is part of a project for Playing for Change, which helps to bring musicians together from all around the world. Musicians from all over the world were filmed live in the streets of their town while performing "Daylight". Maroon 5 is also featured in the music video performing "Daylight" live during an outdoor concert. It sounded really awesome and how cool is Maroon 5 to do such thing.. helping other musician... 




Here I am waiting, I’ll have to leave soon, why am I holdin’ on
We knew this day would come, we knew it all along
How did it come so fast
This is our last night, but it’s late and I’m tryin’ not to sleep
‘Cuz I know, when I wake I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa

Here I am starring, at your perfection in my arms; so beautiful.
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burnin’ out.
Somebody slow it down.
This is way too hard, ‘cuz I know when the sun comes up I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memories

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa

I never wanted to stop, because I don’t want to start all over, start all over
I was afraid of the dark, but now it’s all that I want, all that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close
‘Cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own
But, tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
Oh whoa, (yeah) oh whoa, (yeah) oh whoa (yeah) (yeah)
Oh whoa, (yeah hey) oh whoa, (yeah hey) oh whoa

I HATE WEDDINGS... PERIOD


At this particular moment in my life.. im pissed (again) im sour and bitter and angry and moody and depress and useless and agonised and disappointed and miserable and hurt and exhausted and overwhelmed and frustrated.

Simple reason actually, I was forced to attend a wedding of my relative and pretend that im okay with it. Its not that I hate her.. but generally I hate weddings.. yes.. since I cant have mine.. why should I celebrate those who could..celebrate their reunion..  

And it pisses me off when my aunt has the decency to call me up and invite me to the wedding and insist that I must come… I was like… whattt??? Don’t you understand my position? Don’t you know about my current situation.. don’t you even care how I feel?? All you can see and feel is that you want me to be there.. to be happy for your daughter.. and I have to take care of your feelings.. but what about mine? Can’t you see how suffer I am.. how it hurts me to attend it.. how am I supposed to pretend like everything os okay and smile like nothing borders me when im boiling inside??

Is you so much as care… you won’t force me to go.. you would have safe my face.. okay.. say I were to go.. and I’ll be restless, with fake smile.. I’ll be making scene.. yep… I’ll be like.. I wanna go home now.. I’m going to picked on every single thing.. you’ll see… its my way of protesting… so don’t blame me…

By the way.. for next few weeks just so you know.. I’ll be bitter and moody and sleepless and miserable thanks to you… so bite me!! Im sulking… n pouting my mouth so you could see how miserable I am.. and yes… I won’t be happy for you… capish!!??

Beautiful Turkey - Part II

Sorry it took me so long to update Part II of Beautiful Turkey...  

Ok... Now we shall travel to Canakkale 

Canakkale - all i could remember is its a port city.. beach was beautiful.. we took a ferry from a small town which i cant remember its name... and landed in Canakkale... and we make a quick pitstop at the town where I saw.....

YEP!!! TROJAN HORSE... and YES!! this is the same horse they use in the movie where Brad Pitt acted!!  The name of the movie is TROY. Honestly.. until now I haven't watched the movie yet... cant say why.... 



Ok if you could draw your eyes towards the left bottom part of the photo.. where you could see a tiny red Turkey flag... thats where the Gallipoli Campaign took place during world war I. Infact.. when we reach Canakkale.. they were about to have a gathering in the next few days... hence there's a lot of people around town... like the one in my photo below... see all the local and non local people.. sipping coffee by the beach.. yes.. beach front coffee house.... beautiful sunny but still chill weather... how could you say no to that.. well... i could coz the bus is leaving soon.. so I cant join the locals.. and do what the locals do!!! 




Cute Popcorn vending machines!!!


Its just so awesome.. 
People could just buy pop corn and eat it.. not like here.. 
where you have to go to the cinema or theme park to get your pop corns...

Then... after half an hour of toilet break.. quick souvenir buying and few photo snapping.. off we go on a bus ride again to the town of TROIA!!!

Troia or Troy  which you could read the history at the link that i've pasted... (hey!! dont be lazy... please click at all the links that I've provided... its for your own good.. at least you'll learn something about it.... ) is a town described in the Famous IIiad one of the two famous poem attributed to Homer where the Trojan war took place. 



Troia archaeological site


Yes... Troia was build on top many layer of previous Troy.. which have been burned down or destroy during  war and so on.. there are up to 9 layer of Troy as demonstrated in the top photo... so... the archaeologist was also suprised to learn about it... If you were there you could see the marker that the archaeologist put to marked each Troia... I took a photo but unfortunately its was over exposed. Hehehe.. this trip took place before I took up photography... in fact... it was this trip that inspire me to take up photography as a hobby. Yes... it was way back in 2008 and i have to save a lot to buy myself a dslr camera and a zoom lens.. took me couple of years to buy it... so to those who got their camera from mummy and daddy.. make sure you learn about how to use your camera properly.. and really study the art of taking photos... dont waste your parents money!!! 



One of the old entrance to the Troy...


and this photo below is available on my Flickr album... 
so please click the photo for a bigger view!!

With that.. I shall end my trip story to Canakkale.... please say something by commenting yeah!!

Feeding Stray Cats

This posting is dedicated to Kak Hanie and her friend (sorry I didnt catch your name..) who donated some cat food for me to feed them... 

Well... I've been feeding stray cats n dogs everyday now... Not that I have too.. just that I just feel that there's nothing wrong with sharing the rezeki that Allah have given me.. I wish i could take them in... but having 13 cats with me in a 600 sq feet flat with another housemate.. its a bit cramp actually... so the 2nd best thing that i could do is to feed them... I hope 1 day soonish.. i have enough cash to take them to see the Doctor and spay them.. well my cats have been spayed... err most of them... another 6 to go... then i'll shall spay the strays as well insya'allah....

Meet my regular stray cat... I call him Pak tam... for obvious reasons.. he's a male cat... and black... hehhehe... initially he was quiet... and bit coward... still cant touch him till now.. but lately i noticed that everytime when i'm going to the office or just came back... he'll be waiting for me... regardless how early or late i came home... and.... there's lots of meowing too.. dont know what he's trying to tell me.. I guess maybe complaning he's hungry.. why did i came home late.. or maybe just saying thank you...



My next regular is wawa.... those days she lost lots of fur..half of her body was fur-less and really ugly... see the back part.. now full with fur... and getting prettier everyday... wawa have 2 babies recently.. but i dont know where she hides them.. sometimes.. i could see them when they come n have breakfast or dinner infront of my flat.. hence the tupperware needs to be fill with cat food everyday... day n night..... even when i'm going back to my parents place, I left some for them.. so the ones that know.. will come up stairs n eat... 


There's few more cats but unfortunatly I didnt or cant take their photos.... and the rest.. sometimes when i go anywhere and so happens i came across stray cats or dogs, i'll leave some food for them. Yep.. I have 2 box of cat food in my car... and also some wet food for them 

Recently kak hanie's friend gave her some cat foods and with kind gesture kak hanie gave some to me to feed those strays... she said that she's extending one's charity... i dont know how to say it  in english.. so... I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart... and I know those food does not come cheap... and I bet those cats have the meal of their life... eating delicious kibbles that they could never taste if you did not donate it to me.... so again... Thank you very much who ever you are.. and thanks kak Hanie for sharing some with me...

Lyric:

Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh! 
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh! 
Never had much faith in love or miracles
Never wanna put my heart on the line
But swimming in your waters is something spiritual
I'm gonna get every time you spend the night
Cause your sex takes me to paradise
Yeah your sex takes me to paradise
And it shows, yeah, yeah, yeah
Cause you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh! 
Oh yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh! 
You bring me to my knees
You make me testify
You can make sinner change his ways
Open up your gates cause I can't wait to see the light
And right there is where I wanna stay
Cause your sex takes me to paradise
Yeah your sex takes me to paradise
And it shows, yeah, yeah, yeah
Cause you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Oh oh oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't I just stay here
Spend the rest of my days here
Oh oh oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't I just stay here
Spend the rest of my days here
Cause you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Ooh! 
Oh yeah yeah

Its almost a New Year Entry...

Yeah... its new year.. almost.. since its already February.... yeah... im bit lazy n busy as well.. with work and taking care of Omey... who's sick.. and my Alzheimer's Mom who tends to forget me... and going back to my parents place as often as i could... 

In summary.... I lost the 5 lil' kitties  they did not survive... yeah.. i know... its difficult for them to survive being so small... but I have to do something to help... at least I'm guilt free... 

Then I lost Tommy Omey Owen... he died because of his multiple seizure due to his nerve problem...


This is his last photo in my parents place... sunbathing... yeap... he goes back with me to my parent place everymonth... he's a spoilt brat..


and this is his burial ground with my other rescued cats and kak hanie's bell.. and others too

At least he's in happy place and no longer in pain.. Its kinda heart breaking to see him suffered the last night... I was thinking of bringing him to see the vet early in the morning.. but he didnt make it... Omey... I hope you are happier now.. go see your brothers n sisters up in heaven... wait for me ok....

Enough with sad stories... 

I just read about a post of my friends' blog, Kak Hanie who I met during the Petknode fiasco.... then later we became close and now... she's like a sister that I never have... a relative that I wish I have... who married to a lovely and kinda funny, caring Canadian man, I called him Abang George.. normally... people would just addressed him as George.. coz he's a mat salleh.. or white people we called his type of people... but I cant... maybe I'm too polite or something... hey.. thats me... I have to addressed people accordingly.. with respect and to show my respect... so since Abang George is older than me so its Abang George for me. Abang means brother.. hence kak... or kakak means sister..  That should clear the air. Well, I love hanging out with them. And by hanging out with them especially Abang George...  will allow me to practise my English as he speaks little Malay... which is a good thing.. or else my english will be rusty and worst... then it will be like.... OH MY ENGLISH!!! 

As for Kak Hanie... she's the type of person who supports you.. guide you... point you to the right direction... gives you advise... genuinely like you because of who you are and there's no hidden agenda... unlike some recent people I got to know and defriended on FB!! hahahaha... She loves to blog.. and blog means.. really interesting blog... she's funny in a way... and i love to read and hear stories about how she see things... see life.. and she's good at it... she has that writing flare... and the words she uses.. sometimes.. i have to open my dictionary. And she's really creative... like the chilly flavour condom story... she wrote a simple very santai blog... 

I always hang-out at their's place .. in fact I see more of them than my own relatives... hmmm... that does say something about my relative right... Overall she's a good person... Abg George as well.. other than my bestest friend jaja, and my bpren and Pak Ngah.. my parents, they are my pillars of life... the people that i looked up to...

Coming back to the post that i just read about her "teenage girl" it's just sad to see how kids now a days behave towards their parent... if they could be rude to their parents.. just imagine how they are in society... To be honest.. during those days.. well my days.. i dont dare to say such words to my parents... like i told Kak Hanie... sure mati kena sepak..(se as in sebuah.. not se in serong) i dont know how to put it in english... but something like sure got scold la...and really bad scolding like... mulut kena cili... literally translated as... your parents will take red chillies  n rub it at your mouth.  I dont know where when wrong with children now days.. they are not being grateful..and they are sooooooo drama kings and queens...they think they have really "suckth" life.. yaddi.. yaddi... yadda....but if they were to go through my life... what i've gone through... what some of my friends gone though... and kak hanie as well... maybe they will commit suicide... 

Ok... that what i have to say about that.. if I were to say more.. it will go on and on till the cow comes home... 



SO NOW





hahahhahaha....
