Pink Ribbon Walk Abreast

These are pictures of a walkathon organized by the Pink Ribbon Society in conjungtion with Mother's Day celebration. But the true purpose for the walkathon is actually to raise awareness regarding breast cancer among women and yes men as well(men too can get breast cancer) and the walk is also a symbol of how not to give up to keep on fighting.

The walk was 5km and it was not hot at all due to the cloudy weather which everyone thought rain was coming down. This walkathon is not your typical walkthon, it has a competition of best pinkest costume worn by the participants, its not surprising to see some of the participants dress up in their costume that they are saving for halloween. That's what spices things up I guess. Besides that there are performances by the breast cancers survivors and other participants as well, speech by the Pink Ribbon President, lucky draw and of course Zumba before the show ends.

A Short Story : It's A Funny Story

Do you believe in coincidence? Or just pure miracle? Well it happens from time to time and so you just accept it eh? Anyway, ok so I am at this party the kind where usually it’s only the rich and famous and you can add in most connections gets invited to, me? How did I get here? Alright, for that we need to go back a little, say a year ago? Ok ok but before I begin my story I would just like to say, this is one awesome party I ever got invited to. It’s at a mansion, it has a big pool, lotsa hot girls too. Oh yeah, anyway, my story. Oh and before that, the name is Keith.

Ok so a year ago, no wait, make that a year and a half ago, yeah. I was your average Joe, out of college with a part time job that pays money better than the usual part timers pay, yeah I get to overspend once in a while and end up eating shit by the end of the day~~ I’m just kidding. I love taking pictures, you can say I’m a photographer. A noob. So, on that day, a year and a half ago, quit my job, decided to stop kissing my boss’s ass and plan to start my own photographer thing. So I did what any new and upcoming business guy would do, printed my cards, put them on wind shields, posts box and all, let my friends know and their mutual friends that I exist via the telephone, then I waited. And waited. And waited. Few months passed, it wasn’t working, I mean, I got no calls for services and all. I just keep telling myself, it’s a patient game. For the days that came, I did lots of reading. One book I’ve read caught my eye, Dog The Bounty Hunter. Yes, it’s the dog. The Duane Chapman. A chapter in his book caught my attention when he said he needed to stand outside a corridor and streets to hand out his bounty hunting business card to break into the business. I taught to myself, why not give it a shot. So I did, yet still no response.

Keith took a day off giving around his business card and walk around the streets, entering shops looking for any interesting items to spend on. As he enters the third shop, he realizes one same particular song was played at the third shop we enters  as well. And yet, the song was also played when he entered subway to grab a lunch.

“Excuse me, what song is this?” Keith ask the cashier as it was his turn to order.
“Oh don’t you know?” answers the girl.
“Nope, I can’t keep track of all of these new upcoming popstars.”
“This song is called call me maybe, by Carly Rae Jepsen.”
“You mean that girl from that nickelodeon show i-carly’s is singing this? She is using it as her her alias?”
“What? No no~” the cashier giggles. “No silly, it’s a totally different girl.”
“Owh, alright. Anyway, I’ll take this and a large coke.”

So as I sat there and ate my lunch, it occurred to me. Why not? I’ll give it a shot. Printed more cards, the next day, I was on the streets again, at corridors.

“Hello ladies, here’s my card, it’s for a photography service.”
“Oh alright, thank you.” Answers one of the lady.
“Call me maybe!!” Keith says.
“Did you just quote Carly Rae?” the lady’s younger friend questions.

I just didn’t know what to say when she asked me that, I somehow froze. “Yes.” I said.
“That’s cute,” she replies me. And walked away, few months later, I got a call from her for a service. But that’s another story. That day itself, I handed out fifty cards, try imagining it, I had to say the same line fifty times. It better get me somewhere. The next morning, miracle or what, I got a call for an interview with a particular well known magazine. The interviewer, was one out of the fifty people I gave my card to. 

“So, you’re telling me this is your first job?” the interviewer questions.
“Yes, I had a part time job before, but I thought of pursuing what I like doing most.”
“I still remember when I had my first job. You know, I hate this job I’m doing now, but it puts food on the table, so let it be.” The interviewer paused for a second and looks through my resume. “ Alright, you got the job.” Says the interviewer.

“What? Really?”
“Yes, you start Monday. I usually don’t do this but, you’ve got the balls to go out, giving your business card and telling them to call you maybe. That is one hell of a kind of a story. Alright, see you Monday.”

So, I started Monday. After months of doing some freelancing on the side and also the magazine. Well, here I am now at this party. Do you ever think that a song could land you a job that is not in the entertainment industry? But hey, I’ve got to say, it’s not hundred percent guaranteed it will work. I was just lucky not to get my ass kick while handing out my cards. Oh, and another thing I forgot to mention. I hope my ears did not deceive me, but I swore I heard the interviewer, humming to that song as I was walking out.


                                                                       THE END.

Wetlands Trip

Finally, It's been a long time since I posted pictures. Today headed down to Klias with two of my friends to check out how the tour operator was doing.(Tour operator which handles tour which cruises up and down the river to view Probosics Monkeys and Fireflies) In the process of course enjoy the ride/ cruise. Everything was still good, only thing is, monkeys were too far for my lense to reach. As you can see one picture, where you can see the monkey in the middle, that was the closest the boat got and my lense was able to catch.

The fireflies amount for today, I say its fair. Enough to be satisfied with.

Accession(Chapter 1 : In the beginning)

A woman enters a cave where it was only lit by the sunlight through the cave mouth. She looks over her shoulders every second to make sure no one was behind her. She ventures deeper into the cave which has now revealed itself to be a mountain, there were two gigantic beings were trapped and locked in the rocks of the mountain. One of them had hundreds of hands, another has one eye.

She approaches the beings closely, lays her hands gently on the rocks that binds them. Feeling melancholy. “My sons, I will release you soon. She leans her head against the rocks. “And he will pay for what he has done.”

Exterior of a castle, in a kingdom that was dates away going into a new age. Siblings, two brothers and a sister can be seen planting plants and flowers.

“I hope this is worth something Rhea.”
“So you rather get cooped up in that room of yours being smothered by those whores Hyperion?”
“Seriously Rhea? You’re going to touch on that issue now? We’re helping you planting these flowers, you should thank us.”

“I haven’t seen mother all day, have any of you seen her?” Kronos inquires.
“No, she does this almost all the time, didn’t you realize?” Rhea answers.
“No she doesn’t, I mean she does, but never this long. These past few days she’s been gone long,” Hyperion answers.

“What about her and father, they haven’t been the happiest couple I’ve seen so far,” Kronos feeling worried. “Should we try and do something about it?”

“My dear siblings, before you two darlings were born, we tried. Mother seems to be holding on to some grudge against father,” Hyperion explains. A guard approaches them, informing them the queen, their mother summons them in her chambers. As they arrived, everyone of their other siblings were present as well.

“My sons, my daughters. I have summon you into my chambers for a reason. Is about your father. As you can see he is not with us today, no he is not dead.” Gaia, the mother of twelve children. Sons and daughters. She takes out a sickle from a large box at the foot of her bed. “This was forged by a skilled blacksmith, my creation. It’ll be used for castration, hence, execution. I need to kill your father children, but I cannot do it alone. I want to know, which of you, who is willing to execute the execution.” Every one of them were in shocked to hear what their mother has to say.

“What are you talking about mother? This is not right. Why? What has father ever…”
“DONE TO ME!!??” Gaia cuts off Oceanus as he was trying to justify his father. “Child, you do not know and you do not want to know what that man you call father has done. All I asked if anyone of you who wants to execute him.”

“Mother this is not right~ listen we will talk about this together as a family. With father,” Oceanus tries to calm the situation down.

“Anyone who tries to speak of this, will be executed,” every one of her children walked out of her chambers with a strong silence.

“Rhea, you go on ahead. I’m going to try talk mother out of this.” Kronos returns to his mother’s chamber and tries to reason with her.

“Yes dear. Did you change your mind?”
“No, I’m here to reason with you.”
“There’s no point in reasoning my dear.”
“Can’t you just stop and think about it!!? It’s father we’re talking about here. Why do you have so much vengeance?” Gaia took her son’s hand. And she brings him to the mountain where  the gigantic beings were bind and trapped.

“Do you know them?” Gaia points towards the beings that were bind and trapped in the mountains.
“The Cyclops. And, the hundred-handed Hecatonchires. Father told us stories about them before. They were creatures.”

“Creatures? That’s what he told you? They are not creatures. They are your brothers. Youngest.”
“You said you lost them,” Kronos inquires feeling uneasy.
“That’s what your father wants all of you to think. I come here, and I see them. I feel guilty every single time I go to sleep at night. I always thought of myself as a bad mother who can’t even protect her own child.”

“You talk about protecting your child yet those who speaks of this will be executed. Even your own blood. What makes you different than father!!??”

“Sending them to another family would be sad, not being able to raise them up myself. Binding them into these stone walls!! Where was your father’s heart when he thought of this!!??” Gaia explains with despair. Kronos could only stay silent as he listens to his mother. Gaia breaks the ice again after the short moment of silence.

“You could be king,” says Gaia.

Kronos looks at her , feeling uneasy. Unable to believe what his mother had said.

My Tea

As my throat dries,
I sip my tea while walking back,
The walk wasn't long but it was still a distance,
People were walking around at a normal pace,
The city was calm and quiet,
The atmosphere and aura were different,
I smell fuel in the air,
Is it just me?

I sip my tea as I was passing through the shop lots,
I can taste fuel in my mouth for reasons I don't know with every sip,
Were these cause by passing traffics?
I don't know how to end this,
But I got to my car safe and sound,
And my tea in the bin.
