"Hey I Know That Guy!"

Datuk S sayang Fasha

PETALING JAYA: Kehadiran pelakon Nur Fasha Sandha Hassan, ke majlis barbeku di kediaman Pengerusi Eksekutif Kumpulan SNC Associates Sdn Bhd, Datuk Shafik Rizaal Saaban atau dikenali sebagai Datuk S, di Mutiara Homes, Damansara, Rabu lalu, bagaikan mengiakan hubungan mesra yang digembar-gemburkan sebelum ini.Namun, Fasha, 24, menafikan hubungan cinta bersama duda muda itu. Sebaliknya, memberitahu mereka sekadar berkawan dan tidak lebih daripada itu.Pada awalnya, kehadiran wartawan Metro Ahad di majlis itu sedikit mengejutkan Fasha. Dia yang ketika itu menikmati hidangan, segera memalingkan muka ke sisi. Riak wajahnya yang biasanya ceria apabila bertemu rakan wartawan bertukar cuak dan kemesraan yang biasa dipamerkannya juga hampir lenyap.

Apakah ada sesuatu yang cuba disembunyikan Fasha di atas kehadirannya ke kediaman duda itu? Jika tiada apa-apa, masakan sikapnya berubah begitu sekali. Apakah benar Shafik lelaki yang mula bertakhta di hatinya sekarang?
Hold it! You can read the rest of the article here.

Elsewhere, while the world’s top scientists devote their lives to solving cosmic conundrums such as how life began and what happened before the Big Bag, here we’d still stuck in a universe where which Datuk ‘wannabes’ our local celebrities are seeing is a much bigger crisis than national rice price hikes.

Do I see myself complaining? No.

Not if that ‘wannabes’ is the one I know.

At least now I can hold up today’s newspaper and said ‘Hey I know this guys, I used to pinch his cheeks’.

Yeah I know it’s pathetic, but I am not the one who dates him right now, am I?

Damn it!

I Swamped But We Won

Having forgotten to wish my mom, Happy Mother’s day last weekend, I had to reflect on my current life’s priority. I feel bad.

So what did I do last weekend? I was literally swamped.

In my many years of living in this world, I have always wished for some happy ending. We all have dreams and we try as we might to achieve those dreams and try not to screw up along the way. I had to search my heart and mind, though for the silver lining in this life’s dense cloud.

Then, it came to me like a whisper in the dark – there’s more in life than winning the race – figuring of what it is. Yes siree, I was swamped but never overwhelmed. We won!

Congratulation team!

365 Days

My mom –more beautiful in heart and mind than even in body – once taught me that ‘Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. If you don’t make mistakes, you’ll never learn. But when you do mess up, be the first to admit it. Don’t try to cover yourself. Just stick your hands up and say you screwed up’.

Once in a while, I screw up too. Just like this one – when I forgot to call her on Mother’s Day.

An epitome of pure grace, dignity, respect, a mother’s undying love, a wife’s undiminished loyalty and a woman’s indefatigable uniqueness – that’s my mother.

I know deep in my heart and in my soul I love you and I don’t need another Hallmark-card-money-grabbing day to prove me just that.

From now on, it’s 365 of Mother’s Days for me.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Honest, when Hasmiron asked me to nominate and write about Malaysia artiste who, I think, deserves to be called the next P. Ramlee. (P.Ramlee and Beyond Project by Graha Residenku), I seriously had doubt.

I mean this is insane. Our local artiste who is ‘P.Ramlee-worthy’? Who would actually give a long serious thought about that?

(But then again, Graha Residenku never really ceases to surprise me!)

Not only that I think Tan Sri P.Ramlee is irreplaceable I could barely care to know some of our local artiste, let alone their much revered success (feel free to send me hate mail see if I care)

Unfortunately there was no getting away for me. I must show people I care.

So I watched AIM on Saturday night to get an inspiration and to get me all worked up for my destined-to-be-doomed ‘opinion’.

(I’ll spare you the review about the show, since I have nothing much to say considering that much of what I wanted to say probably have already been said before).

But the truth remains the same.

As far as putting the word ‘multi-talented’ to any of these so called next best things goes, we won’t be seeing any replacement anytime soon or - quite possibly - ever will. He’s such an icon, a genius, visionary, beyond-his-time multi talented superstar, a ‘lagenda’, and a massive influence to our small - but not in anyway inconsequential - entertainment industry (phew!). And rightly so no one should actually be compared him.

So this ‘invitation’ came a little too demanding, too weird. It was such a tall order for me

But just for fun of it, and for the fact that I like to mess up with everyone’s mind especially organizer’s, I think I’ll jump in.

Well, who’s gonna be? I guess you’ll have to wait a little longer to find out.

Right now, me think, whoever Graha Residenku end up awarding the RM50 Sogo/MPH voucher to is fine with me cause out of this whole little ‘game’, at the end the real winner here is the caring fan - like you and me.
