In The Plane

Singapore Airlines. It was the red eye, the last seat at the back, a lady, Asian mixed Caucasian, seated on the right side of the plane, an aisle seat, in her mid. twenties, reading her novel thoroughly. It is a ten hour flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. Night falls as they go into the fourth hour of their flight, dinner was already served, hours ago. The lady in the aisle seat continuously reads her novel. The elderly man next her in the window seat has fallen asleep long ago. After a while, she dozes off into the night.

“Ms”, the steward wakes the lady.
“Would you like some juice?”

“Its morning already? Yeah okay, sure.”

The sun penetrates through the window of the plane, the lady takes out her digital cam, and snaps a few shots of the morning skies. The elderly man, approximately in his early 60’s sips his juice and smiles as she does so. They both smiled at each other. 20 minutes later, breakfast was served. The lady continues her novel after breakfast. Another four hours left to their destination. In the last two hours, the plane went into a sudden turbulence. The plane shook as if a little kid was shaking a wrapped up box on his/her birthday guessing what was inside.

The cabin crew did their job of keeping the passengers calm. The lady puts her book on the middle seat which was empty, fasten her seat belt and hold on tight to the chair’s handle. The plane dropped into a number of air pockets several times.

“First time flying? Or afraid of flying?”, asked the elderly man next to her.
“I’m just keeping myself safe.”

For the first time, the lady really notices the elderly man’s nationality. Asian, Japanese perhaps.

“Are you Japanese uncle?”
“Why~ yes I am. You’re not racist aren’t you?
“*snicker* no~, just wondering.. *giggles*.”
“*giggle* you must be terrified of the turbulence”

The lady didn’t say a word.

“Things like these happen almost all the time on flights.”
“Why aren’t you scared? You were a fighter pilot of something during your day?”
“Haha~ nope, I got used to it by traveling a little bit too much. What is your name sweetie?”

“Lisa, You can call me Haru. And you are mixed? I assumed?”
“Yes I am, my mum is Chinese my dad is Australian. They met in college. I just graduated by the way, after my doing my Masters.”

“Ah, wonderful. Congratulations. Where you plan to work?” or what do you plan to work as?”
“Don’t know yet, I want to travel, clear my mind off things.”
“You youngsters these days. * he looks at the novel*,Hmm~Norwegian wood.”
“It’s a good book,” says Lisa.
“ I know, I read it before.. it is a wonderful story.”

The plane turbulence just got a little worst, the pilot tells everyone to calm down and everything will be okay.

“What do you think of the writing?” asked Haru.
“I feel he is like Neil Gaiman, a English author/ writer. His style is, draggy but when it drags it drags you into it even more. Draggy but interesting. I like this author, Haruki Murakami.”

“Thank you I myself am a big fan too.”

The plane’s turbulence stopped, Lisa was relieved. She closed her eyes and breathes deeply to calm her nerves. Haru just smiled. Few hours later the plane landed at Los Angeles Airport. As the plane comes to a halt at the bridge, everyone prepares to go off the plane. Packing their things back into their carry on back pack.

“Hey Haru, thanks for talking to me during the turbulence. I appreciate it. It help me get my mind off the turbulence.”

“It was my pleasure, your most welcome Lisa. Nice to have met you. Perhaps or paths may cross again.”
“Its nice to get to know you too, yes, perhaps. One day.

As they both approach the door, the stewardess and the pilot greeting them off are awaiting them.

“Oh my god, it is you,” says one of the stewardess.
“Damn it, it is you,” says the pilot.

Lisa was few feet back. Adjusting her back pack while she overheard as well.

“Its you, Haruki Murakami. The Japanese author. Yes I recognize you. Am a biggest fan of yours. Thank you for flying with us,” says the pilot.

“Thank you and thank you to your cabin crew as well in doing their job in keeping the passengers calm. I’ll be flying with your company again. I assure you. In the near future.” Says Haruki Murakami.

Lisa, stares at the front airplane door as he waves Lisa goodbye. All she could do was just smile.

College Carnivale 2011

Finally some new pictures, it seems that I'll be putting on hold the poem writing to make way for the pictures posts or perhaps I can just 50/50 it? We'll see how it goes.. So yesterday, my college had a carnival or in other words a bazaar. There were a number of booths that was opened by the students and some opened by the staff and employees of the college selling goods, foods and etc. As for our booth, we opened a photography booth, people can take their pictures up to a limit of 5 pieces. They have to add money if they want more. Subsequently.

Because of the rain we had to put our "business" on hold for a short while, when the rain stops we resumed our business. There were games and performances as well. There were even games for the young ones. The children age approximately from 4 to 6 years old(mostly employee's children I think). There were parents and even outsiders who came to the bazaars. Friends of students or employees perhaps.

Overall the carnival/ bazaar went well.. We had lots of fun despite the rain and other challenges we had to  face on that day. It was very exciting, get to get our heads away from the books. And a Thank You to the booth next door(our left) for giving us free "things".. Thanks ya'll.

When we were young,
We use to listen to the melody that shape our lives,
We gave our senses to the day and night,
We brighten the day with our lives,
The night with our melodies.

Could you feel every thing you go through?
Do feelings tend to lie?
Disguises are what we see,
Our melody define us,
In a world filled with unfairness,
Its up to oneself to make it fair.

G' Nite Mate

As Tom Jones plays on the player,
Droplets of rain falls onto my hand,
It was cold,
The breeze was refreshing,
The street lights flickers every moment,
Signs that it needs maintenance,
I hear sounds of reffing engines,
Ascending and descending.

As Engelbert Humperdick plays,
The night became peaceful,
Street lights reflections made me sleepy,
I drift into a wonderful night,
As the diamonds above being the last memory of the day.

The Poem With No Title

Whenever I'm here,
Some things are not,
Do you hear the laughter?
Perhaps the storm should be softer,
The fire opens the mind,
The visuals may only be on the inside.

Sandpaper smooths the cracks,
My eyes corrodes the fields,
Are the reflections telling me lies?
Who am I to say?
I stand by the rocks of the seas,
Looking beyond the horizon.

Pepsi, thirst cleanser.. Took this during the trip to Kuala Penyu last year. Haven't been able to take new pictures lately, so why not walk down memory lane for while eh?

Stockholm Syndrome

August 12th 2011, 10 am. Outside the parking lot of an old building, the overall area is covered with jungle, its been filled up with cars arriving. Some got dropped off, some drove and some arrives in a bus getting off with no hurry. Those who arrive, quickly went into the old building which seems to be the main hall of the place and registered their name which indicated that they did enrolled. Everyone was told to take their seats in the hall while the one in charge goes on stage and gave a speech and briefing ,at the end of her briefing she said “ Welcome To Outward Bound School”

Altogether they are 30 participants who participate for this 2 weeks of OBS(Outward Bound School) camp. The participants are ordered to go to their assigned rooms and were asked to gather out on the grass field after 5 minutes of settling down and getting into their sports gear. Once gathered outside, the instructor divided the large group of 30 into a smaller group of 15 each. That small group of 15 again is divided into a much smaller group of 3.

“As you can see these obstacles. You have to help each other in your group to get through it,” instructs the instructor.

The instructor continues to speak, meanwhile..

“I guess I am the only guy in this group huh?”
“Don’t even think of making any funny moves, I am able to break you,” states girl #1
“Guys~ we got to concentrate on getting through these obstacles, especially the wall, “ girl #2.
“The name’s Taylor by the way, yours?” *looks at girl #1*
“Am not going to get all emo. Here, you can call me girl #1.”
“sheesh, mine’s Nancy. We better get going, girl #1 is getting ahead of us already.”

May 16th 2009, at a pent house in the city. Taylor comes home for his lunch break from his office.

“Darlin!! Am home for lunch!! Haha!! First time able to escape from that hell hole at this hour!!..Sweetie??”

Taylor notices that there was no one at the living room, but he hears moaning from the second floor bedroom, he prepares for the worst as he goes to the bedroom and opens the door.

His girlfriend noticed he came through the door and looks at him with confused eyes. The man with her acted like he did not know anything.

“So~ this is what you’ve been moonlighting? Besides being my girlfriend?”
“Listen its not what you think it is,” says Karen, Taylor’s girlfriend.
“Oh yeah I heard that excuse before!! In the movies!!!
“I am lonely ok!!???
“wait till you feel lonely and tell me how you feel.”

Back at OBS, the trio were about to climb over the wall.

“Ladies first ,” Taylor suggest.
“I feel much comfortable for you not to push me up from the butt,” states Nancy.
“suit yourself,” Taylor climbs and as he reaches the top he helps Nancy up. While helping girl #1, she let her hand go.

“What are you doing?”
“Taylor I can’t do it”
“Ill help you out.”
“I can’t.
“Just skip the climbing if you are unable to do so”, instructs the instructor.
“Alright, Thanks.”

September 29th 2009, at a café somewhere in town. Taylor is having a sit down with his mate Joe over a cup of tea.

“I miss her.”
“C’mon man, alright it is normal to miss someone though after breaking up, you feel like you have made the wrong decision or something,”

“I think I did.”
“Listen here mate, remember all those stories you’ve been telling me? Things that she has done to you and all? Lies and shit?”

“ I know but, I don’t know.”
“ok, you knew she was being unfaithful to you since when? February this year according to you. you’ve been together for 2 years this year. And yet she pulled this stunt on you. Think of it this way, you want to get hurt again?”

“No I don’t, but I still love her, regardless of what she has done. I would do anything to fix it but I don’t think so.”
“Sigh, I feel for you mate, been there before. Its all up here mate *points to his head* and down here as well plays a role*points to his chest*.

16th August 2011, day 5 of camp. Nancy was awaken by the knock on the room door by the instructor at 6.15a.m. Participants were told to make their way to the beach for the morning exercise. At 7 am they made their way to the dining hall for breakfast before their next activity. She sat on the table which was shortly joined by girl #1 and Taylor.

“Morning ladies, slept well?”Taylor asked.
“Bed was comfy.”
“None of your business Taylor.”
“Morning blues,” States girl #1.

12th August 2008, at a Italian restaurant somewhere in town. Nancy and her husband, were enjoying their dinner. Meanwhile. At the next table. As Nancy and her husband turns around to have a look see.

*People on the table cheer*
“okok, this is our first anniversary being together as boyfriend and girlfriend and I want to say to you darling. I love you.” *The man kisses his girlfriend*
*Louder cheering*
*In a distance, a voice* “pay that bill Tay...”*fades*

Back to Nancy’s table.
“kids these days, spend their money like water. Remember us back in the days, the 80’s all we do is just build stuff and you made me a bouquet for our first anniversary”
“I had to steal them from the garden.. ok~ park.”
“Sweet of you.” *kisses*

16th August 2011, noon.
“How far do we have to paddle this kayak?” Ask Taylor.
“Just follow my lead, not too far left, once we get there, we walk back to the OBS via the highway.. we’ll be meeting the other team there. The other half of the participants. They however will be using these kayaks to go back to OBS via water,” states the instructor.

“you ok back there girl #1?” She is sitting at the second seat at the kayak with Taylor.
“I’m doing great, I don’t think Nancy is.”
*points at Nancy as she looked gloom*

25th August 2008, Nancy’s husband. Robert. Punches her in the face, pushes her down to the ground.

“WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!?? It is not wrong for me to go and hang with my friends and have a drink or two!!”
“you were.. always... never home.. I missed you. You are always on trips..”

Robert kicks her in the stomach, Nancy spits blood.

“ you’re saying I am cheating on you!!?? Is that it!!!????”
“I’ve never said you were cheating on me...”

Robert walks away. Two days later Nancy meets up with her best friend Rebecca at a café uptown, and told her about her ordeal that she had been going through for the past number of days. She states that she do not know the reason what lead him to become so violent like this. Rebecca reckons that she reports this incident to the authorities but Nancy insists on giving Robert the chance to change.

Robert went on a business trip and won’t be home for a number of days. Nancy decides to go through Robert’s things and belongings to find out what might have caused him to change.

16th August 2011, 2.15 p.m.
“God damn its hot!!”
“Try not to talk much Taylor, it just gets hotter the more you talk,” advises the instructor.
Girl #1 walks with an umbrella.
“Can we share?” asked Taylor.
“It can only fit one person, which is me,” answers sarcastically.
“How can she stand being in this hot weather under that hood?” Taylor points at Nancy.
“Give her sometime, she’s not being herself at the moment.”

2nd January 2009, its been almost 6 months, and the abuse kept on coming. But 5 days ago, Robert asked for forgiveness from Nancy and pledge that he will get help for himself. To fix himself from this disease named abuser. Before he does so, he brings Nancy to Australia, to the outback for a vacation to forget about everything that has happen and to start a new. On their way back from the outback, they drove pass deserts, out of the sudden Robert stops the car by the side of the road and kicks Nancy out of car. He throws her backpack out as well. Robert once again punches her and kicks her in the stomach. He went back into the car and drove away and left her there for dead.

Nancy, with her backpack crawls by the side of the road hoping for a passer by. Its been almost 2 hours now in the Australian desert. Which feels like forever. She reaches into her backpack for water and realizes she has a satellite phone. She calls Rebecca, she tries to tell Rebecca her situation. But she was mumbling due to the extend injuries she receive and the striking hot weather. She was unable to explain and fainted. Rebecca knew something was wrong, she alerted the Australian authorities to track her call and etc, Rebecca and her husband quickly took the first plane off to Australia. The Australian authorities was able to trace the call and found her lying covered in her own blood on the road side of the desert. She was rushed to the hospital by air that instant.

5th January 2009, Nancy awakens and sees Rebecca and her husband by her side bed in the hospital.

“Hey girl you feeling better?”
“That bastard isn’t here. Apologies for my chosen word. But yeah he isn’t here,” Rebecca’s husband assuring Nancy.
“Bill, I know you are a lawyer and you came together to help me.. but please do not convict him,” begs Nancy.
“What!!??” Rebecca in shock.
“The man nearly killed you, if found guilty he could be charge with manslaughter or even attempted murder.”
“Bill please, do not report anything about what has happen. You too Rebecca. I love him.”
“After what he did to you? Nancy dear, please for my sake, I’m your best friend, anything happen to you I’ll cry my damn eyes out because I was unable to aid my best friend. And I am standing looking at her body being lowered into the ground!!”

“I love him, for better or for worst.”
“Sweetie, if you love him, you’ll do the right thing for him..”
“But I do not want to see him get punish. I do not want to see him suffer in jail.”
“Rebecca darling, I think let Nancy rest for a little while longer. Nancy, get some rest ok, we’ll come back again. When you are well enough think about this.”

“I already have.”

As Bill and Rebecca walks out the door. Rebecca walks out first, Bill turns around..

“If it hadn’t been for you, Rebecca and I would not be together now. So I owe you.”

Five days later, Nancy is still in the hospital bed, she sees her cell phone on her bedside. She picks it up, and dials.

“Hello Rebecca dear, is Bill there? I’m going to do the right thing.”

16th August 2011, 5.30p.m, dining hall.
“Nancy,*Taylor gives her a cold bottle of water* please drink some before you die.”

Nancy smiles, takes the bottle and drinks it.

“You feeling better now? You got us worried sick back there.”
“Girl #1 you worry me more, till now you still have not told us your name. Surprisingly even the instructor do not shout out your name.”

“Yeah what’s that about?” Taylor questions sarcastically.
“Its Melissa”
“Finally,” Nancy and Taylor.
“what’s up with you during the walk?” asked Melissa to Nancy.
“I just don’t like the hot sun, the hot weather, had a bad experience with it.”

The instructor goes upfront of the dining hall and explains that, there would not be any night activities and the participants are free to roam around the area. They have to get back to the dining hall by 8p.m for dinner and 9.30p.m for supper. And that for the next couple of days there will be camping for the groups and they’re going to camp at the island nearby as well. They’ll be kayaking to the island.

June 11th 2007, at a restaurant in a mall. Melissa is taking a customer’s order. The chef’s calls Melissa to take the prepared dish to its ordered table. As she arrives she sees a couple, the man with length hair and the girl with a shoulder length hair. The man asked the girl he was with..

“will you be my girlfriend?”
*The girl looks up and around with a big smile. Very shy*

“Say yes gurl!” Says Melissa.
The three of them laughed as Melissa served them their food.

It was night, Melissa’s shift is over. She heads home to her apartment. The distance from her apartment to her workplace isn’t far but still a distance. She reaches home to see her mother and two brothers still watching tv. She has a conversation with them and heads to bed. The next morning she was awaken to the sound of her alarm clock. She heads for work at 8.30a.m as the alarm ranged at 7.45 a.m. She walks her usual path to work. While walking, she decides to head towards the bank to withdraw.

While withdrawing, the bank was held up by man in masks. 4 of them. With guns, big guns.

21st August 2011, Taylor tries to make a fire. A bonfire. He has been trying to do so for 3 days, now 4th. As he blows he just could not get the smoke out of his eyes and tears up. Finally on this day, he succeed in making a fire.

“Finally, Damn.”

Today is the last day that their half of the group camp out on mainland, tomorrow morning as the other half returns their half will go to the island via kayak and camp there.

“so what you do for a living?” ask Melissa to Nancy.
“I’m a kindergarten teacher.”
“Your kids must be missing you huh?”
“I guess, they’re adorable.”

“Taylor, you?” Melissa asked.
“Am a P.A for the boss of my company.”
“Male? Female?” Nancy wonders
“She must be tough.”
“Haha, she’s smooth.”
“What does that suppose to mean?” Melissa ask.
“Nothing~~.” *smiles*

June 12th 2007, 9.15a.m. The four robbers finished rounding up the people inside the bank and keeping them quiet. Two of them were standing around upfront while the other two work on getting the money from the counter.

“C’mon guys!! Lets go!! Lets go!!,” Robber #1.

As they ran outside the building was already surrounded by the police.

“Owh shit! Get back in!! get back in!!!,” orders Robber #1.
Back inside.

“Jim!! What are we going to do man!!??”
“Shut up dimwit!! No names!!”
“arghh! No point, we’re gonna be dead soon.” Robber #2. *Takes his mask off*
“Max, you mad!!??” Robber #3.
“If you realized this bank has no back door Edward.” *At the same moment, Robber #3 takes his mask off*
“The only way out is down, but we do not have the equipment to do so, isn’t that right Jim?” Robber #4
“Whatever you say Andy, What ever you say.”

Now all the Robbers have took off their mask.

Its been 4 hours since the robbery, everyone inside the bank is quiet. Dead silence. The robbers are walking around. The guards were too frail to fight back. Jim and Andy are talking to each other at one corner of the bank. Max still has his guard up at the hostages. Edward however approach a couple who looked frightened.

“Get away!! What the fuck do you want!!??” ask the angrily husband.
“Hey, hey calm down.” *Jim and Andy turn their heads to see what’s going on.”
“You’re doing a good job there protecting her. Ma’am, you’ll be fine.”
“You got a girlfriend or wife of your own?” ask the man’s partner.
“She left me for another, says I’m not rich enough.”
“She’ll regret it, what’s your name?”
“Name’s Edward. What’s your name?”
“Nancy, my husband Robert.”

“Oii~ what the hell are you doing Ed? This isn’t a social visit. ” Ask Jim.
“Hey take it easy, they’re just scared.”
“You want me to shoot you in the head?”
“hey!!hey!! we’re in this together, he’s just....” stammers Andy.
“Just what!!?? Sigh~ sorry man I lost my temper,” Jim.
“Take it easy.” Ensures Edward.

“Max!! where’s the bank manager?” ask Jim.

Max looks for the bank manager, a 50 year old man, and finds him, he brings the bank manager to Jim.

“Listen here,*looks at name tag* Johnny. Is there another exit out of here?”
“No, I’m sorry to say,” ensures the bank manager.
“Don’t bullshit with me!!! *grabs Johnny by the collar closer*

“Hey!!! * Melissa stands up and walks towards the robbers and Johnny* let him go. There are no back doors here in this bank.”

“And how do you know?” ask Max.
“My dad use to work here and I use to roam around whenever he brings me here. I’ve checked and double checked. Not a single exit via the back. At all.”

August 22nd 2011, 11.30 a.m. As the other half of the group returns. The first half of the group, prepares to board their kayak and make their way to the island.

“Instructor?” calls Taylor.
“Are you sure its safe to kayak there?”
“what do you mean?”
“Look at the waves. * The waves were strong, wind were blowing moderately strong. There was no storm coming ahead* I mean, look at them!”

“Ah~ that’s the thrill of it.”
“what!? You do know we can loose our lives right?”
“Not to worry, no one is going to die today.” *Giggles*
Nancy “ we’re fucked”

As they kayak through the seas, the waves have not been friendly to them. From time to time it hit their kayaks hard. Another participant’s kayak nearly capsize.

“This is what he meant by not to worry!!!????” Taylor.
“Just hang in there, we’re nearly there!!” Melissa.
“Are you hearing what I’m hearing!!??” Nancy.
“Woohoooooo!!!!! C’mon God, is this the biggest and baddest you can offer!!!??? Woohoooo,” The instructor screams in delight.

June 15th 2007, noon. Its been four days since the robbery. The hold up was still on going. The robbers were still in the bank. So are the hostages. The robbers demanded for food and water, which were given to them eventually few days earlier when the demand was made.

“So technically you are doing this with your buddies cause you think you life is over without her. Is that so?” Ask Nancy.
“Sort of, technically.... I meant.. YES.. “ Answers Edward.
“Dude, she’s going to regret doing that to you, I mean, I sense that you’re a hard worker, the kind of guy who works his ass off. Besides, you’re good guy, a nice guy..all of you are.. I guess you’re all are just lost puppies or perhaps, people who are just looking for answer for themselves. About themselves. If you weren’t good guys we would be dead by now.” Says Robert.

“So why are you guys doing this?” Ask Melissa to Max.
“why are you guys bank robbing.”
“Don’t talk to me about this, talk to Jim. He’s the leader.”
“Leader he may be, but yet still, there must be a reason.”
“I’m just doing this cause, they are my best bud. I owe them, they got me off the drugs. I know we have a choice but, sometimes we just gotta do the wrong thing to get the right results. Right?”

“I cant say.”

Melissa walks to Jim. Jim was sitting and looking downwards at the same time he was having a conversation with Andy. As Melissa approaches, the conversation stops.

Melissa “ what’s up? Are you ok?”
Jim “ I didn’t expect this to happen.”
“I planned that we got out of here in 60 seconds the latest.”
“We are unsure what to do next,” answers Andy.
Melissa “sighs”

August 22nd, 2pm. It took them at almost two and a half hours to get to the island due to the strong waves. Taylor, Melissa, Nancy are putting up their camp where the three of them will be sleeping in one camp. They also helped other participants to build up their tent.

“ok listen, rule number 1, when we say get out we wanna change, you get out you hear? And when we sleep, no funny moves, we can break you,” Says Melissa.

“Damn alright take it easy ok!!?? You’re treating me like I’m some kind of pervert..” Taylor.

June 20th 2007, Evening. Outside the bank.

“Detective Jack, we’ve got to move in and get them out of there. They have been in there for days now,” Says a police officer.
“Look, we have been talking to the robbers, they won’t dare to pull any stunt. Besides, we have them snipers up high.. Just in case.”

Back in the bank, the robbers were getting impatient. Max is feeling uneasy, feels as if he is about to freak out.

“Is your friend allright?” Ask Melissa to Andy about Max.
Andy approaches Max as he is in cold sweat and feeling uneasy “ Max, you alright there buddy?”

“Enough, I’ve had it, I’m getting the hell out of here!!!”
“Max..WAIIITT!!!,” Jim screams.

Max went out of the bank with his hands held up, gun on one hand.

“His got a gun!!!!” yells the police officer.
“Wait no!! stop!! Hold your fire!!!” order’s Jack.

The sniper got him straight in the head. Max fells to the ground as Jim and the other rushed outside to his aid.
As they reached outside, they were surrounded by rifles and pistols pointing straight towards them. They raised their hands, go on their knees and put their hands behind their heads. The hostages were released, family were reunited, Melissa was greeted by  her mother and her brothers.

Two days later in court, all of the 16 people who were hostages, were brought up to the stand. Not even one of them, even Melissa herself, testified against them. All of them were defending the robbers.

“These men you see right here, were robbing the bank aren’t they?” The lawyer ask Melissa.
“As far as I’m concern, they were rehearsing for a movie. Or was it a play that they were about to make?hmm.”

Everybody was dumbfounded, even the judge. At the end of the day, the robbers were sent to prison for 3 months plus community service for threatening to kill.

August 25th 2011, 2.30 a.m. Island camp site. The beach. Melissa awoke in the middle of the night, and found out Taylor was not next to her like how the sleeping arrangement was arranged. She got out of the camp to find Taylor was standing facing the sea at shore, she walks towards him as the breeze blew a lightly.

“Can’t sleep?” Melissa.
“I can, its just tough to sleep. My ex, she text messaged me.”
“what did she say?”
“I miss you.”
“And you replied?”
“Well I plan to reply ‘screw you’ but I’m still thinking.”
“*Laughs* so you stand out here all night long to figure out whether or not to text ‘screw you’ to her huh?”
“Honestly, I don’t know why am I thinking this way about her.. I mean, I feel like I’m thinking and feeling like how girls also do. I mean usually, men will just like go party or have a one night stand and so on, where girls will be emo and stuff though. Correct me if I’m wrong about you girls. *snicker*”

“Well doing so doesn’t make you girlie or what so ever. At least you know how we girls feel when you men cheat on us or break up with us with no reason what so ever.”

“I guess.”
“don’t worry, you’re a good man, you’re a nice and kind person. I would be with you but..”
“But what?”
“You’re not exactly my type.”
“Bullshit, what is that suppose to mean? You’re lesbian?”
“*giggle* *Slaps Taylor at the back of his head* “no silly, if I was I’ll be all over Nancy by now”

*Melissa grabs Taylor by the arm*
“Ok now you listen, lets go back to camp and get some sleep. I don’t want to drown cause my partner in front fell asleep while paddling. You hear?”

“*Giggle* yes ma’am”

They finally went to bed that night. The next morning they wake up they ate their breakfast, packed up their things and got ready to head back to the mainland. They left the island at 8.30 a.m. due to rough seas as they went through it slowly they reach mainland by 10a.m. They packed up the remaining of their things that they left in their room that was locked for safety. At 1p.m after their lunch, they headed to the main building. The main hall to attend the closing ceremony, where they’ll receive their certificate of participation. The ceremony ended at 2p.m. the parking lot was emptied by all of the participants who made their way home right after the ceremony. All that is left there was the trio.

“So~ where you heading?” Melissa ask Nancy.
“I’m going home, then I’m off to the airport. Going to visit a friend of mine in Australia. Today, I’m catching the red eye.”
“Safe flight to you then *hugs*.”
“And you? You’re going to be alright?” Melissa ask Taylor.
“Yea I am, hadn’t reply here yet.”
“Well you better do.”
“Hey guys, thanks all. Keep in touch alright?” Nancy bid farewell*group hug*

Nancy droves off.

“Ok I’m going off, its nice knowing you Taylor. Good bye.”
“Hey Melissa, I don think I’ll be replying my ex anytime soon though. And I might forget.”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean, I would like to spend time with my friend first before I do so. If I forgotten, too bad for her. Ill buy the movie tickets and she’ll buy the food. I guess I have to convoy with her back to her house cause she can’t leave her car.”

“You’re cute.”

They both left the Outward Bound School and made their way back. Home.

Black And White Night

So finally I am posting pictures again..Yesterday our photography club had a photo taking session which we used the backdrop made by Jeremiah. We had lotsa fun doing so and we used the room over its booking limit(limit 2 hours).. We also used flash guns to enhance its lighting effects.. The last two pictures were pictures from a photo shoot few months back..(the last one was from my open house) I am just trying out photoshop CS3(yeah its CS4 or is it 5 now? or 6) so yeah, experimenting with it and I seem to be getting a hang of the black and white style..

On This Day, I...

Yes, Its finally done.. This is my first attempt ever in making a short movie. Something that I have wanted to do for quite sometime now but do not have the proper equipment to do so.. For the success of this short movie I would like to thank Fizzie and Jeremiah for helping shoot this short movie. Jerom for fixing my laptop and giving me pinnacle studio(Jeremiah helped updated my laptop as well).. And Jared(my friend's brother/ Tamar's Brother) for inspiration via his short movie The Amadis Project-the graveyard shift(check this out too)..

Its been awhile as well since I've posted pictures/ photos.. Ill be re-starting to post pictures/photos again soon..

I have traveled far,
In the crappy car,
The roads that were not taken,
End up being all broken,
Them taken roads,
 Ends up filled with screaming toads,
I see mirages of my memories all along the way,
That's the price I pay,
For being human,
In every wonderful moment.

I saw lights beaming down from the heavens,
Accompanied by flying ravens,
A screaming storm came by me,
The flying ravens disappeared in front of me.

Scars reminds us that the past is real,
A part of papa roach lyrics from where I peel,
I waited at the waiting stand, 
For your words to make me tan,
And I thought I could be a hero,
But I end up being a zero.

I'm sorry that the chain of prime,
Became rusty from time to time,
Its all about moving on and getting back up after getting hit,
Peeled that from the latest Rocky Balboa movie hit.

Look Up

Have you ever wonder,
About those things that happen,
But you don't see them,
what would it be like,
If you saw them?

All the time,
When we walk,
When we run,
We never look up,
All those times we walk in malls or houses or just plain buildings or outside,
We were never bothered to look up.

High low ceilings, domes and blue skies that cover our heads,
May just be materials that was use to complete a construction,
There are many things that happens above us,
Even though if it is just a small thing,
Just by looking up and see it,
It may or will change your life,
It was never proven so,
It doesn't hurt,
It doesn't cost a thing,
But its worth a try.

Footprints In The Sand

Here's my shadow,
Trails upon my footsteps,
Leaving those little footprints,
I'd call memory.

My feet experience the world,
My footprints leaves my mark,
On the surface I walked on,
Which only knew my true self.

One step shall lead to another,
Of a destined journey I took,
Of those blank pages written with thousands words,
It is a book of spilt ink and tears.

sip my tea,
As it has gone cold on a summer's day,
Its aroma,
Reminds me of the tears I've spilled,
Where I can spill no more.

Memories are indeed the shadows.
They may haunt and trail,
Written books and spilt your tea,
Yet in the end,
Those shadows of memory shall only appear to be as,
Footprints in the sand.
*A writing collaboration I had sometime ago..

The cafe window

“Wait!! Hold on!!! Stop!!” shouts the lady in red as she ran towards the bus stand in the burning heat trying to stop the bus that was en route to her destination. She stands there in disbelief that she had missed her bus the second time this week. She looks at the bus schedule that is posted on the pole near the bus stand, the next bus to come to finish its cycle round will be in two hours time. She goes into a café on the opposite street to kill her time, she ordered an ice blended cappuccino and sat next to the window facing the bus stand. She sips her drink slowly while browsing through the magazine provided by the café.

Half an hour passed, the lady in red started to get bored and fed up with the magazines provided in the café as there are no new ones for the past couple of months. She sips and sips her ice blended from time to time looking at people, observing them in the café. She then turn her attention to the opposite street where the bus stand is, she looks, she observes the people that passes through there. Observing, looking at what is happening outside while people inside enjoying their refrigerated air. In awhile, she sees a man, jogging at high speed, looking at his watch constantly, timing himself. He bumps into two passer by, no apologies to them. Not too far in front, two woman, one with an infant, they both got caught up in a conversation. The infant got loose from his mother’s hand, he walks directly into the path of the jogging man, who looks at his watch again. He bumps into the infant, his knee knocks the infant few feet up front. The infant cries in pain, the mother rushed to his side, the jogging man stands aside and stares down and continue to jogs without even knowing if the infant is going to be all right. The mother carries her child and comfort him and walks on.

The lady in red stops sipping her drink for a moment there after what she saw. A few moments later someone knocks onto her table almost toppling her drink. No apologies from that person. As the wait goes on, the cold air suddenly becomes warm, the lady in red opens her top button to let her breathe better. She gets the stare as she does so, she quickly covers it up by closing the lit. A few moments later, the convenient store next door was rob by the looks of it, it was a mid 20’s man. People in the café seem oblivious about it. He ran across the street, knocking down an elderly woman with an umbrella in the process on the opposite side walk. As he continues running, he stops in his tracks and did the uncommonly thing. He walked back and help the elderly woman onto her feet, he just took his time. The police arrives at the same moment, and brought him into custody. Even with the sirens, people in the café were still oblivious about the incident.

20 minutes left before the bus arrives. The lady in red finishes her drink and looks once more out of the window before getting up to leave. Two cats, a mother cat and her kitten. On the sidewalk just outside the café. There was a rat in the mother’s mouth, she places it on the ground. The kitten tries to eat the head, but it was too tough. The mother cat bites the dead rat’s head, perhaps cracking its skull. After so, the kitten eats the head without any hardship to it. The view of it made the day of the lady in red. She went onto her bus that arrives on time after two hours with a smile.

OverFlare(Experiemental 2)

Ok so, few months back, I was watching the new Star Trek on DvD. Surprisingly it was quite good for me,it has one too many flares.. ok fair enough, you're in space and flares can happen like every second..fine.. Now, 2 months ago, I watched Super 8. Same guy who did Star Trek. Again one too many flares..And you're on earth. So why not? For this post, I played around with flares.. You can barely see it in the last picture, sorry about that. I really think, I need to use those movie kind of flares, those rectangular long ones, not the camera kind of flares.. I think there is like a plug-in for it or something,like an add-on to download..It may look better.

Its not easy to brighten a hallway,
Its not easy to heat up those who needs it,
It will never be easy to stay,

Have you ever seen a candle,
Lit itself up?
Or lit itself back up every single time it goes out?
In this world,
You'll see a lot of those,
Do you think its easy,
For a candle to lit itself back up?

You'll see candleS lit themselves back up,
Some you'll see that will just extinguished,
And forever be gone,
Candle/ CandleS plays two roles as well,
A candle and a matchstick,
Laugh it up if it sounds funny to you,
But this is fact.

Cannot depend on just one to ensure,
The flame remains,
Them candleS,
Plays roles in making sure,
The fire still burns,
can depend on oneself to keep burning,
CandleS need each other to remain,

Eye In The Sky

This sunset was taken at the shore of Likas say around 5 something? towards 6, yes there still was little bit of sun. I was hitching a ride back from Mahira from the Miss Earth talentshow when she said " let's go to the shore there(near the U-turn) take sunset". I was like "Allright"~ There were many people there enjoying the breeze, eating, barbecuing and etc. Luckily it didn't rain though.

Every ShaLa~La~La~

Last Friday we(myself, Cheryl, Kok, Jeremiah and Joanna) finally had our photo shoot, but it was not intended to be like how we wanted it to be. Because of the rain we had to change a couple of things including the theme. But, at least we are able to have our photo shoot and have a hang out. We had this shoot at secret garden, its a korean restaurant. Where its garden use to be a miniture golf area but now it is just a garden.. Still it gives a nice view.
