I got to connect with my very old friend through the FACEBOOK today and it's confirmed! She's in China now, working maybe...I'm still waiting more of her comments. I knew her since I was in the kindergarten. We were in the same class until her family moved to KL when we were in Std 3. She was one of my best buddies. Then Juliana left to AS and Azlina who stayed through the years until we were in Std 5, also left Marian Convent for good. I was left without any close friends after that. Life was very dull and unexciting. But since that, I learnt the meaning of independence. And the funny thing is (too), due to my independency, I began to have many secret admirers... (just imagine that, baru std 4...). Norzita, I'm glad I got to know you back! We've got a lot to catch up after this...So, it's not a bad idea to join the Facebook community after all!
p/s: Tweet, if you're reading this blog, I would also like to tell you how happy I am to be able to get connected with you again. You are still the same, friendly and always curious to know about the 'ordinary' people's life like mine. I remember how unhappy I was when I was asked to change my seating in class because I liked to tell 'stories' to you. Nah...no heart feelings. Nak buat macammana? But I sat back at my old seating the next day because u had already 'reserved' the place for me. And the teacher dared say anything to us. Hehehe...Those were the days. Tak boleh cite lebih2, nanti ditimpa daulat...(jangan marah...)

I may not like Talentime (movie) but it touches my heart and soul everytime I heard this song, remembering how Hafiz (Shafie Naswip) wept silently to the death of his beloved mother (Azean Irdawaty). Yes, It's a very sad and heart wrenching scene. And I also thought of my youngest sister who's been attending to my bed ridden mother for weeks, from home to Ipoh Specialist and now, Selayang Hospital. She's all there for her...Where was I?
And my father who's on wheel chair, travelled by bus , on his own, using his crooked cane to Selayang Hospital without the knowledge of any of his children. He only brought a nearly torn paper bag with him which contained a kain pelikat for solat and pair of shirt and trousers. Yup! Truly sad...I was not there for him neither.
There were also other sad occasions and events that surrounded me lately which are impossible for me to clarify here. The pains may be disappeared later but the cuts, the wounds will be there permanently. I hope i will still have the courage to smile and move on for the sake of everyone I love. Aameen.....

Forget him being a gay ( I'm not saying that I'm pro to the movement...don't get me wrong), just enjoy the song, the voice. This Tears for Fears's song has never been better. Bravo!
All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

Well...after watching the movie in JM cinema last Friday night, I'm sorry to say that that the Indian family is more 'Hindu' and the Malay family is less 'islamic'. And, that the Malay family potrayed in the movie is so typical and very much identical with other Malay families in the director's other movies like Sepet, Gubra, Mukhsin..you name it. It's not how 'liberal' the family is, it's how 'unmalay' or unislamic some of their manners are. I was not disturbed with the way they eat using chopsticks during lunch or dinner but the way they handled themselves during this occasion. No bismillah before eating, amusing themselves with some inappropriate conversation and table manners during meals, etc..etc... Hmm...I personally felt a little bit disturbed...I'm not going to say to my children it's ok to intrude when your mother is having a conversation with her friends or when the elders are talking. I'm not a very conservative person but when it comes to culture, tradition and religion I think everyone of us should be sensitive .
On the other hand, I would like to give credits to some outstanding performances of our actors like Azean Irdawaty, Mohd Shafie Naswip, Sukania Venugopal, Mahesh (these people really shined!). The rest are ok. I also kinda of like the songs being played in the movie. Atilia and Aizat's voice truly captured my attention. The used of the hindi song in the movie is also brilliant.
1) Hafiz gave salaam to the left first during solat in the mosque?
2) There were only 10 teachers in the school?
3) The school looked empty-fewer no of students seen around the school area, not a busy environment like any normal school.
4) Why was the ustaz wearing a jubah? Even a lot of ustazs in our religious schools today do not wear jubah during work... And no 'kepiah or songkok'? That's not a complete observation, I should say.
5) Where is the principal? Adibah looked more like one, rather than a teacher.
Ok then! Overall, I don't really recommend you all to see the movie if you want to see a 'Malay' movie. If you are into 'Malaysiana' movie, maybe yes...
