Runway - Final Walk


Assalamualaikum,

Background music: Pachelbel's Canon

44 seconds and I finally reach the end of the runway. When I took the first step, the runway seems like a long journey. It even terrified me. But now, this is it... This is my final moment on this runway.

I stopped and let the seconds caresses me. I let the melody of Pachelbel's Canon to dance around me. I closed my eyes and said softly: this is the melody I heard when I fell in love, and now she's going to play her melody and witness my final walk.

A good runway model could walk in any dress and in any high heels, on any runway. I might have stumbled once or twice. But I'll learn and I'll be better. Apart from that, I know I did my walk beyond every expectation. I did it.

I opened my eyes and see faces I love. The halo in their eyes set my soul free. I know no matter which row they are, they'll always be there for me. Their love radiates from them and warmth the air. It tells me that I already have the world.

[I think I saw him smiling at me before walking away with her. He never came closer to the runway, as I wished. I sent him away with my eyes and with my heart. Thank you, I wave.]

Flower petals fall from above. They landed on my clothes and on my open palms. These petals, they were like love that touches me. Though not a bouquet, they were still flowers. One day, [InsyaAllah] I'll receive my own bouquet.

This is my final pose.
This is me.

It was endurance that made a diamond.
Wassalam.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

It's Just a Day

Today is another tough day. Well, it feels tougher - but I have survive many days like this.
A colleague blow up on me. I irate a colleague badly today. That's the beginning of everything: people starts being honest and the truth come flooding.
I don't know - I really don't know - how I could have offended other people. I am the type who either stand in or walk away. I was scolded, I was put on my place, and I have had arguments. I am aware of that.
But most of the time, I am just here, sitting at my cubicle, doing my job. I thought if I talk less, comment less, gossip less, it would lessen the probability of any inconvenience caused by my personality. Oh yes, I am aware that I am a difficult person. That's why I choose to stay away from other people when the going got tough.
So self-aware and crying, I sent this to the closest colleague: If I have wronged you, tell me. So that I can apologize properly. If I have flaws, tell me. So that I can improve. Please do not resen…
