Punctuation Marks


[Background song: Yuki No Hana by Mika Nakashima]
[It was raining heavily outside]

June 2010 is the month where the most punctuation marks being used. When you are clarifying the happenings, punctuation marks help a lot. They help to differentiate several of emotion and they are very useful in making your explanation sounds more convincing. But be careful, you don't want to overuse it or misuse it; it can make things worse.

I hope I used the punctuation marks well. You'd be surprised how a comma (,) with a correct placing makes the story sounds better. Too many ellipses (...) would make the audience think deeper than they should -- you might want to use it less. The use of question mark (?) is good for provocation, but if you overused it, it makes you sound defensive. On the other hand, using quotation marks (‘ ’, “ ”) could provide the reference/support you need. What happened was a big event in my life. Even without using the exclamation mark (!), my audience can sense the stress. So there's no need to make it bigger -- exclamation mark is banned for use.

What's need to be share, has been shared. Selected people knows everything, people who cared enough to ask get their answers, people who happen to ask the correct question knows the least of it. The more I spoke about it, the more I feel the happening was real. No problem, it was real. No matter what news you are breaking out, take time to prepare yourself and your audience. Though, don't wait too long.

The truth hurts, yes. But truth give proper ending and answer questions that floats all this while. It hurt at first, but it heals through time. Reality is hard, yes, they always do. But nobody can sleep forever just to dream their favorite dreams. The sun shines every day, even after the darkest of night.

My final punctuation mark was a full stop/period (.). It ends a lot of thing. I ended a lot of things. The end.

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…
