“Friend” who introduced the word to us? When do we learn the meaning of this word? How do we know “the one” is our friend? When do we start to address them as a friend? Do we know the real meaning of friendship? How long it stays with us? Do we still bother about the one we used to call as a “friend”?

How long a friend can stay as a friend? How long the friendship stays as friendship before it’s disappear and fade away leaving no traces.

I’m sure we have come across a lot of people in our life. Only 10% out of them become our friend. Yet, we only allowed few of them to be close to us.

Now my question is, how long does the friendship last longer?

Remember, friendship is like a tree. You need to take care and nurture it with water and fertilizer to keep it healthy and grow. If you have stopped nurturing, it will die even before you realise it.

NOW, ASK YOURSELF. How many of you are taking that concise care to nurture your friendship? Does it make it to your priority list? If it is not, I tell you what, there is no point of having this friendship because it will die anyway. One day, it will go far away and you can’t even trace memory of it.

SO, if you are gifted with few good friends, learn to appreciate them. Make time to nurture your friendship so that you can always sail in the FRIEND-ship while living your very own life.

Trust me; it’s only possible if it is in your priority list. I know where I am; I’m working hard to be in priority list. If I can’t make it, I know I have died trying.

#SelenaGomez #Lupus #KidneyFailure #afriend #Inspiration

Have you guys heard it?

Selena Kidney

This is the most saddened, surprise yet inspiring news for this September month.

Selena found she has a sick called lupus back in 2014. Seriously, I got to know of this word only through her. “Lupus” it’s an autoimmune disease where your body immune system turns against your body parts and tissues which it’s supposed to protect. At worse, it can affect your bone density, heart, liver, pancreas, and brain.

That’s what happened to this famous super cool pop singer #SelenaGomez. So, she had to go through a kidney transplant. Another super cool fact is that one of her friend named “Francia Raisa” is generous to donate her kidney for her. I mean I have no words to say. Would I do that for my friend? I’m totally doubtful on myself. “Francia Raisa” you have my utmost respect.

Just before she had the surgery, she released her new album song Fetish. Watch it here My question now is; she had all the money in the world to take a break to get rest or even to quit her career to live her own life. Why the hell, she need to work (I mean so) hard to release an album before the surgery? Oh!!… COME ON!!…

Right after the surgery, she announced her new collaboration with “PUMA”. Do I have a word to describe how she had inspired me with her act? No, I don’t have.

Puma

I mean have she had the surgery? It’s so invisible.

How old is she? What!!! Just 25? Where the hell, she got this much of inspiration from? Where she finds her motivation to put that work equal to her life?

If I were Selena, would I have done the same? I don’t think so.

She showed me how serious we should consider our work is.

She showed me how committed we should be to our work.

Nothing gets to higher other than your commitment to the work.

#Rohingya: The #Discriminated Minority in #Myanmar

I am skipping scrolling whenever I come across of their pictures in social media. How could it be so much of pain in one single picture? Why their eyes are conveying unendurable pain?

This is not the first time humans are discriminated by the name of religion, race, colour, country, nationality, gender and so on, you name it.

The earth, the land is belongs to no one. In fact, no one knows the CREATOR. Who are you to claim ownership of it?

How can it be a person become so unwanted out of nowhere?

THE OTHER SIDE OF ME …

Thank God it’s in Myanmar. Would I accept them; if they were to be in Malaysia? Have I accepted the foreigners who have occupied Malaysia right now?

Am I thinking all those beggars who were flooding the city street at night are not discriminated in Malaysia?

Am I thinking I’m not discriminated as a minority in my own country?

What should I answer? What Should I do now?? ………………..

Today, on this date, I’m happy to be “ME”

It’s no longer the same after 8th of this month. I know I need to add (+) one more year to my age. But first of all, how old am I? Why am I kept forgetting my age? Why I need a calculator at all time when I wanted to how old I am? Hmmm, maybe because I have stopped calculating it already.

Eight have dominated my life somehow in every positive ways I would say. Somehow, I could be a destiny child for eight. I felt the number so much in me. Maybe, that’s way I got attracted it so much.

I knew everything and anything happened in my life is happened for a reason. The good, the bad, the hurdles, the hard work, the stress, the frustration, the pain, the lost, the miserable, the loneliness, the abusive, the joy carries its very own reason.

To tell the truth, I didn’t really do anything in my life with a concise thought. I was merely following my heart and what is right at that time.

I don’t really give serious thought to anything in my life except when I’m sad.

I don’t enjoy talking about my personal life and feelings to anyone in my life. I love to keep it to myself. I enjoy loneliness in my own way. I love to do self talk. Today, I realised I have lost myself talk in the process of growing up. I’ll die keeping my life only to myself. None, would really know the real me and I like to keep it that way.

I’m glad for staying grounded. I’m glad; I always know the reality of life. I’m glad, I don’t easily get influenced.

Today, I want to thank the MOTHER of NATURE for moulding me to whom I am today. I’m happy I spent so much time of my life with nature instead of people.

I’m happy to be who I am. I’m glad; I’m born this way.

I know I’m unique in my own way. I know I’m being very truthful to myself. I know I’m very sincere in heart.

I know I’m not someone in this society yet. I know I’m not rich yet. I know I’m not there yet where I’m supposed to be. But, I’m happy to be who I am today.

Today, on this date, I’m happy to be “ME”

Besides my flaws, I’m blessed more than I should.

Happy Belated Birthday #tamaka

[Street Life] Pasar Seni #KualaLumpur

I never thought being early at street and witness the daily life can teach me life changing lessons. From ordinary people to a beggar, it requires consistent hard work to survive. The street lives I had witnessed had inspired me to work harder. The daily hustle of ordinary people reminds me how laid back I am. So far, it’s been a great motivation for my life. Thus, I have created these series, hoping it will inspire you too.

All pictures shared here are mostly captured on early morning to best reflect the hustles. All snaps are taken within Malaysia unless stated otherwise.

The sweeper who is working hard on weekend for that low salary because he has family to feed. 

The feeling of ignored on our country when we are struggling to secure a job while foreigners are easily starting up a business.

The hardship of surviving of ignored and abandoned people in the city. Life is not fair for everyone. Surviving is the most things in life.


This young couple are around their 70’s wondering around city holding hand. What a great message for a great marriage life.

[#tamakaTravelLog] #Pangkor the Beach #Lumut

Date: 22 April 2017 Days: 2 days

Being a “Perakian”, I have never been to Pangkor until April this year.

It was a sudden plan by my mom. She is approached by her friend who is also our neighbour. This is the first time she had asked me to bring her to a trip. So, I agreed to her request without a second thought.

This is my first time visit to Pangkor. Although, it was a simple getaway, Pangkor impressed me. It’s such a beautiful heaven indeed.

We had rented a chalet typed room with only MYR100 at Teluk Nipah. To our surprise, the room can be easily accommodate by 4/5 people. It also comes with an extra bed. That means the average cost per person is only MYR20. The owner of the chalet is a cool guy. He didn’t even bother how many of us are staying in a room. *Mind voice: I should have brought my entire family. The bathroom is slightly narrow where it’s purposely design such a way to allocate more space for the bed. Who want the bathroom when the beautiful beach is just five minutes away by walking distance?

On our first day, we visited the famous Pangkor Kaaliyaman temple. The temple is still under renovation and to be completed very soon.

Then, we rented a van with MYR80 p/day to tour the Island. The driver also carries tour guy role. He is an Indian. After a long chat, we found out the guy is our long distance relation. The world is getting smaller by the day.

We started with Pangkor Muzium tour (obviously, this is not my mom’s kind of stuff). After that, a Chinese temple, a jetti, the dok, the famous handmade mee company, the low priced seafood shop, the Pangkor helipad, the best snorkelling areas, the beaches and good value hotels.

Then, we settled in our rooms to enjoy our home cooked lunch. Right after the lunch, we decided not to waste time. We changed our dress and headed to beach. It seems like we couldn’t be bothered by 4pm.

The beach is just a five minutes away from our stay. A well kept beach with crystal clear water is home for living corals. There are few small islands located few distance away from main beach which is good for coral visit. This beach view is too overwhelming for eyes. I didn’t know Pangkor beaches can be this entertaining and stress relieve beauty.

It seems like my mom couldn’t resist the very eye catching beach, so she decided to jump into waves to enjoy the sea water. She also enjoyed the little swing with her own singing talent. I rarely see a smile in her face. Witnessing her joy is the best thing happened to me in this trip. I videotaped of her swing happiness to keep it unto my memory.

There are also many water motorsport activities available with reasonable price to boost enjoyment. This time I have decided to skip them and will try them in my next visit.

For dinner, we enjoyed wet kuew tiew and fresh shellfish. Since the seafood is so fresh here, so I have decided to try the shellfish after so many years and it didn’t disappoint me.

On late night, we had a walk and bought some souvenirs. To my surprise my mom bought me a ke chain for my car. This is the first time she is buying a souvenir for me and I’m so impressed. I want her to do the selection for me so I have decided to keep my choices to myself. This is one of the precious gifts I ever received. Thanks mom.

The next morning, I woke up early and decided to take a walk to the beach. These crazy people love the beach so much until they have decided to get wet as early as 7pm. Crazzzy.

The morning scenery is way more beautiful. I think I sat on those rocks for more than an hour until I couldn’t realise the tide and I lost my shoes to the sea.(maybe she had an eye on my shoes I guess)

Then, we did nothing much but get wet all day long until we get tired and decided to go home around 3pm.

I’m planning for second visit to this place on coming August with my whole family.

Till then, wait for my Pangkor II post.

#MoveOn : The Only #Option You Have Right Now

I was sincere. In fact, we were both sincere to each other. Yet, how could this happen? And, why “I” triggered this?
Out of nowhere, something happened. Something pulled us apart. We are separated without fighting, without telling each other and without any reason.

We walked our own path. We never looked for each other. (It could be my guilty concise, It could be his ego) Time flies. Days to months and months to years. I knew we loved each other; seven years passed by just like that. It was first love to both of us.

I heard he is getting married. I got those news two days before his wedding day. I’m helpless. I felt alone. I can’t do much about it. I’m happy for him though. He MOVED ON. He made his life decision and he is going for it. I can only send my wishes to him over the sky.

I spent years asking the “why” question to the sad ending story. I couldn’t move without knowing the reason. One day, without knowing I learnt to accept the fact “it’s not meant to be” and I and he wouldn’t have been who we are today if it is not the way it is.

I accepted the fact. I tell myself “you have to MOVE ON; you have no other option”. Then, I MOVED ON.

I MOVED ON that I do not want look back.

I MOVED ON and learnt to bury the memories.

I MOVED ON stopped looking for an answer.

I MOVED ON and stopped thinking.

I MOVED ON left all the sadness.

I MOVED ON leaving my past behind.

I MOVED ON to be myself.

I’m glad I MOVED ON.

P.s. My past on his birthday. “Happy Birthday”- Remembering the written word in the unsent cards
