The Love of Non To Compare

The guitar strings may be broken,
One by one perish to two pieces,
Losing its melody, its fine tune,
Yet music is still being played,
Flowing pleasure into the ears of many,
Blanketing sour to smiles,
Overwhelming the ugly to great beauty.

Honey, towers may collapse,
Hearts may break,
The clouds may fall from the heavens,
But not your spirit,
Nor your love and pure heart,
Would ever be ruined, 
Nor be unfounded,
For your passion for life grows stronger,
Making the best of your power,
To make me smile as how you have always done,
And to make others around you feel nothing but more love,
For you.

Honey, we will be here,
For the worse of views,
And for the best of memories,
Pictures once taken would never change,
But more beautiful as we recall and see it tomorrow,
You will be in the middle, the darling, the baby, the sayang,
You'll be the strongest,
Fighting your way through,
For only a warrior would be able to overcome this,
And you definitely lead the army of faith and sincerity,
The weapons of courage and perseverance,
The armour of compassion and empathy.

Honey, we love you,
I love you,
And we will be here, yes we will be here,
A vow on my soul,
And on all of ours, 
For you truly became the light of the many,
The love of non to compare.

Far Yu (For You)

A month of great sunshine,
To have been in honour of your presence,
A great blessing of pure love,
How I was made to soar from one touch,
With your simple smile and low voice,
And how unfortunate I never had a photo with you.

These words are permanently marked into my heart,
"You are a wonderful person, you made me smile first time in 4 months",
During your oncall night:
"Since you're going to sleep, I'm just gonna whisper and say I like the way your hands fit into mine".
And as you were about to fly:
"I don't know why but I'm already missing you, and correct me if I'm wrong, your eyes look sad.

You did not just scarred my heart,
But you also scarred my right cheek,
I took it as a flaw,
But now I see it as a mark of love,
For now I would remember you everytime I look into the mirror.

Such great adoration I had for you,
Your principles of loyalty and transparency,
Your priorities in wealth,
Your values towards friendship and family,
Your determination in striving for your dad's challenge,
Your OCD, cleanliness and neatness,
Your intelligence, oh how I am blown away,
Your maturity and integrity, thoughts of vision for success,
Your sincerity, sigh I don't have any replenishment for my night cream and moisturiser,
Your humor and wittiness despite being horrible at spelling.

My heart shatters, not to pieces but ashes,
For gluing it back together is not the challenge,
But to simply locate the bits of it, is,
How I miss you, your scent, how it remain in my hands and memory,
For I know I could never have it back as your perfume is unavailable locally.

I won't stop the right from the wrong,
For that is your desire and I will flee your heart,
Sacrificing you means sacrificing part of my soul,
Sacrificing a great joy which I mistakenly thought would last,
For only admiration I would have for your next love,
Oh how lucky your next love would be.

What saddens me more,
I never had the chance to say it,
Nor you had the opportunity to say it to me,
Those three words that lovers should.
For I would say it now not that it matters,
Yes, I love you.
And goodbye. 

I'm so hollow
So this has been For You

The Vow

The Vow, a romantic comedy (released April 2012)

"I vow to always hold you in tenderness,
To always have the patience that love demands,
To speak when words are needed,
To share the silence when they are not,
And to live within the warmth of your heart,
And always call it home"
"I vow to fiercely love you,
In all your forms, now and forever,
Promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love,
And to always know in the deepest part of my soul,
That no matter what challenges might carry us apart,
That we'll always find the way back to each other"


"How do you look at the girl you love, face her, stand and walk away"

- "I hope one day I can love the way that you love me"

"I chose to stay because I think of all the good that he has done for me and not of the one mistake that he did"

The One That Got Away

 It's a random sandbox. You wouldn't know what treasures would be found. Some would make you smile yet some would make you drop tears. I can only search for what lies within the unknown and only hope to get as much as offered


"The One That Got Away"

Summer after high school when we first met
We made out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 18th Birthday
We got matching tattoos

Grabbed a bunch of blankets
And climb to the roof
Talk about our future
Like we had a clue
Never planned that one day
I'd be losing you

In another life
I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away

I was June and you were my Johnny Cash
Never one without the other we made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on (Whoa)

Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown singing the Blues
It's time to face the music
I'm no longer your muse

But in another life
You would be my girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
The one that got away

All this money can't buy me a time machine (Nooooo)
Can't replace you with a million rings (Nooooo)
I should've told you what you meant to me (Whoa)
'Cause now I pay the price

In another life
I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]

In another life
I would make you stay
So I don't have to say
You were the one that got away
The one that got away

To Abolish PTPTN?

Well the latest hype now that the election is coming is whether should the government abolish PTPTN. I find this topic extremely amazing. Well the government say that it is not fully possible as the RM43 billion is a huge amount, but the opposition says that it's only about RM27 billion (sorry I can't remember the exact figure) as the additional billions are from the interest rate. The people have also demanded free education even up to the tertiary level.

Abolishing the PTPTN, does this mean the past RM43 billion would simply not be paid by the borrowers? Let me go step by step on this.

Currently yes we still have to pay for tertiary education and we know public universities are many times cheaper compared to private universities. Perhaps free education up to the tertiary level would be great. However does everyone really know how the students of these days use their PTPTN money?

Many people I know does not come from the wealthiest of families. A certain percentage of their loan were actually given to provide for their parents back in the kampung. So if we abolish PTPTN, how are these poor students to help the families back at home? Are we expecting the students of tertiary education to not just study but work part time as well? Especially students who are taking difficult fields of studies such as physiotherapy and medicine, do you think we actually have the time to go work part time?

Also some of these students used their PTPTN money to buy needs such as laptops and even new phones. I admit that I see some of them could buy some really expensive phones. I know of one person who got approximately RM3200 per semester, RM1200 was used to pay the study fee, and another RM1500 was used to buy a new phone. The remaining RM500 was used for food for 6 months and he often go on a cheap bread or bun diet. So these kind of people, since priorities are way off the true objective of education loans, why take the loan in the first place? Then later if they are not able to get a job, or a job with a relatively good pay, they would blame the government for it? Also, assuming some who actually buy laptops instead of phones (laptops are of course a necessity for university students), so if they are not from a family who is able to support them, where would they get the money to buy laptops? Or even books as we know university books are expensive. I could spend up to RM1k per semester for books alone.

What about our basic necessity of food? Many of these students, again from not the wealthiest of families uses the PTPTN money to simply buy food. their families are not able to provide them adequately therefore the loan itself would be paying for their daily needs. Think about clothing, class trips and other miscellaneous, how would they afford all this if there is no loan? Even if education is free, all these items are still expenses and if there is no PTPTN, where would they have the means of purchasing these items? Bank loans? Borrowing from other people? HOW?!

Also PTPTN requires the borrower to pay after 6 months of graduation. This would encourage students to work hard in their studies, get good grades then get a good job to pay the loan. Why do we want to have such a subsidised mentality still, to not have to pay back the loan? Some even suggest for only those with a salary of more than RM3000 have to pay the loan and those who have a less pay does not need to. Does this mean they would not have to pay the loan at all? Doesn't that sound like PTPTN would be converted to scholarships for them? Sounds like a scholarship for mediocrity. Free laptops, free handphones, free food and clothing then since the PTPTN money has been converted into scholarships? Nice, I don't mind getting a pay less than RM3000 then. Also, this should again tell students that studies is something they should take seriously, not to play around as they should know they have a loan to pay upon graduation. And does abolishing the PTPTN loan means the RM43 billion does not have to be paid by the borrowers? Ho0oray for them for the free laptops, free phones, free clothing, free food, free etc. Perhaps I should have taken the loan and get all those things free.

We have to also know that many students studying in private tertiary education are also on the PTPTN loan. So if these students are not able to secure a place in public universities, and they can't afford to pay for education in the private sector, wouldn't PTPTN be of great help? Or should they be working first with their SPM and collect enough money for education later? By then they might be at least 21 or 22 years of age and they would get their diploma only by 25 when many have gotten a degree by that age. How is it fair to the private education students?

Free education, yes! Abolishing PTPTN loan, no! (perhaps a better request is to reduce the interest rate rather than abolishing it fully)

You Lost Me - Christina Aguilera

I am done, smoking gun,
We've lost it all, the love is gone,
She has won, now it's no fun,
We've lost it all, the love is gone.

And we had magic, and this is tragic,
You couldn't keep your hands to yourself.

I feel like our world's been infected,
And somehow you left me neglected,
We've found our lives been changed,
Babe, you lost me.

And we tried, oh, how we cried,
We lost ourselves, the love has died,
And though we tried you can't deny,
We're left as shells, we lost the fight.

And we had magic, and this is tragic,
You couldn't keep your hands to yourself.

I feel like our world's been infected,
And somehow you left me neglected,
We've found our lives been changed,
Babe, you lost me.

Now I know you're sorry, and we were sweet,
But you choose lust when you deceived me,
And you'll regret it, but it's too late,
How can I ever trust you again?

I feel like our world's been infected,
And somehow you left me neglected,
We've found our lives been changed,
Babe, you lost me.

Leaves may drop but I would live.
Regrets would remain as regrets until a lesson is learned.

Reshattered (Written In Your Colour)

I reminisce on what I see,
Everywhere and everytime I had the touch of you,
How it tears my sight,
My heart wish to not succumb to the call of the impossible,
You were there and now gone,
Somewhere I know I can never be in your embrace.

Missing my days at work,
Your presence for meals or just for me,
How I remember while movies we watched,
The warmth of your scent, my sweet surrender to your comfort,
How we search for the modern technology,
Tented on my bag everywhere, acting as my hand,
The Immortals we watched at the end of the room,
In each others embrace and love,
Passionate lips meeting and hugs,
Always inadequate, always with love,
Driving is always a joy with your hand in mine,
With your thoughts resting on my shoulder.

Missing is just part of you being gone,
The perplexity of my emotions is uncomprehending,
To forgive you is divine,
For I gave my whole self yet you gave me your unknown,
To forgive is not I am capable,
But my wishes for happiness stands with me,
For I never fall.

You, you and you,
My complete soul was devoted to you,
And now I learned,
For perfection never exist,
For true love could be impossible.
