minggu-minggu terakhir cuti yang amat penat...

minggu lepas aku kerja tanpa rehat. abes je kerja, terus gerak dari GIS ke Sri Pentas untuk briefing Karnival JomHeboh Bukit Jalil. briefing tu, pada perancangan awalnya patut start at 7.30 pm. tapi biasalah.. masanya pun tak begitu sesuai, i would say.. sebab orang terkejar2 nk solat.. aku pulak terkejar2 nak gerak dari Hartamas. tapi TV3 ada sediakan surau, jadi tak sepatutnya lambat. haih~ entahlah. i hate to say this.. tapi semua orang pun tahu.. JanjiMelayu.

2 hari berturut2 aku berpanas kat Stadium Bukit Jalil. aku dengan Qurratu pilih booth Woman@TV3.. at first, since this is the first time i actually go to JomHeboh (sebelum ni tak sanggup berpanas hanya utk tengok celebrities) aku expect yg datang tu mestilah pengacara WHI. tapi aku tak expect yang sebenarnya WOman@TV3 ni merangkumi drama2nya sekali. so ada lah actors and actresses from SpaQ (Fazren, Nisha, Little Erin), Puteri Salju (Fizo Omar).. then ada Anita Baharom, Kenchana Dewi a.k.a Kamala (sekadar menyebut beberapa nama).. ada lah beberapa lagi.

it was quite hard for me to recognize them, except for the artists that have been in the industry for a while. tapi aku serius tak kenal Fizo Omar. maybe because i did not watch Puteri Salju. Fazli Zainal (tidak kesampaian... cinta kita...) was there too, tapi i tak recognize sebab dia baru shaved. bila Qurra cakap barulah i was like "Oooh.. dia ke?" haha~

macamanalah aku nk kenal. i'm very bad at names. susah nk ingat nama orang kalau bukan kenalan rapat. i always secretly repeat my frens' names so i can remember. ramai yang tak perasan, tapi aku selalu tersalah panggil orang especially kalau orang yg baru kenal. sebab tu kalau jawab phone kat GIS kena pegang pen. macam hari tu, nama dia Evelyn, aku panggil Yvonne. jauh kan? pastu ada nama dia Kim, aku ingat Peck Ha. terbalik2.

back to JomHeboh, masa ni lah kita boleh tengok perangai celebrities. if we stand in the audiences' crowd, kita masih nampak the celebrities as who they are on TV. but when we stand there as a crew, hmmm.... wallahualam, hanya DIA yang mengerti. ada yang memang friendly and down-to-earth.. ada yang ingat dirinya sangat hot. i wouldn't say who's who.. but pikirlah sendiri. kalau mau tahu, joinlah myTV3! :P

tapi yang memenangi trofi di hatiku adalah Ifa Raziah. very humble dan friendly. not too demanding and easy to work with. yang lain tu ok, tapi ramai yang baru. so they should behave well.. nnt kena boycott. tapi Ifa Raziah walaupun popular tetap sederhana. two thumbs up!

to those who acted as if you are the most popular celeb... nothing lasts forever, baby!

pengalaman di Jom Heboh memang tak boleh dibeli di mana-mana. aku seronok kerja dengan krew2 TV3 yang friendly and warm. awal2 datang aku takut2 jugak sebab tak pernah kerja untuk such big event. tapi diorang faham dan diorang pandai buat kitorang rasa dialu-alukan. thank you, Kak Ida, Nita, Zheff, Ariff, Zul and Khal from Khal Hair Saloon, crews from Life Spa, Ian, Khairi and Encik Halim. Thank you for the opportunity. semoga berjumpa tahun depan!

cheers :)
enjoy life while you still can

p.s: gambar akan diupload secepat mungkin. malas la nk tunggu. haha~ ciao!

weekend-ku..

wah~ esok dah start kerja balik. tapi sedih lah sebab i have approximately 2 weeks left with GIS. huhuh. habis lah zaman kaya aku. after this i would have to wait for my scholarship to be banked in. aagh~! kalau cepat tak apa jugak. but i hope tak lambat sangat sebab i tak suka tangguh beli buku.

lately my mom is using a very different approach in communicating with me. she is rather quiet when listening to my stories. and everyday when i come back from work she would ask "did you enjoy your day?". and the same thing is being asked when i come back from anywhere. for example, yesterday i spent time with my closest frens and when i came back my mom asked "seronok tak tadi?". and i rasa lain betul bila mak tanya macam tu. i feel special :)

yesterday i kena tengok TV1 punya news sebab diorang buat live broadcast from Bukit Jalil for SUA (Sukan Universiti Asia) and my brother happened to be there. some of my frens were there too so i ingat nk tengok la mereka2 ni. tapi sorang pun tak kelihatan kat TV. haha~ and my bro punya bengang sebab camera tak focus kat their crowd, diorang pergi sokong kontinjen Vietnam sebab kebetulan baju sama warna. my bro can be very weird sometimes. haha.

tapi pointnya bukan pasal live broadcast tu.. i ter-imagine what it's like to work in RTM. i'm bonded with the government, remember? haih~

cheers :)

ye lah...

baru balik kerja.. aku sibuk betul hari ni. well i tried to keep myself busy. kalau tak nnt i keep on thinking of Tuan Haji and the memories we had together. the funeral was on Sunday and by today i'm supposed to get over the feelings. no matter how much i want him to be by my side, i have to admit that ALLAH loves him more. and he walked away from this world as a good man... so i must face it.

i said something really harsh to somebody last night. probably because i was tired, or i was simply tired of her. not la so harsh but dia memang the kind of person yang taknak mengaku salah. so biar je lah. i malas nk kecoh2. i cakap benda yang betul je. i don't want her to repeat the same mistake. especially in the neighbourhood where people would blame the parents for what the daughter does. benci kan? so i thought maybe i nk bagitau dia to watch her words, her action, tapi alih2 dia kata aku ni bukan kawan yg baik sebab tak support dia. haih~

oklah. aku memang bukan kawan yg baik. kawan kau tu baik, dia backstab kau, dia cakap pasal kau, pasal mak kau depan orang lain, dia mengumpat kau dan senyum depan kau, while i... i do nothing. jadi aku ni memang tak baik. full-damn-stop.

cheers :)

Ready, Set, Don't Go - Sarah's Version

i came across this song and decided that it can be played on guitar. this is a song by Billy Ray Cyrus featuring his very own daughter Miley Cyrus. when i try to play, i think i should be singing as a female. so, this is the version of mine.

suitable for a girl whose brother, little brother, of loved ones going away for studying, or working, you know, fulfilling his dreams. :) enjoy!



he's got to do what he's got to do
and I've got to like it or not
he's got dreams too big for this town
and he needs to give them a shot
wherever they are

looks like he's all ready to leave
there's nothing left to pack
ain't no room for me in that car
ven if he asked me to tag along
GOD, I got to be strong

he's at the starting line of the rest of his life
as ready as he's ever been
got the hunger and the stars in his eyes
the prize is his to win
he's waiting on my blessings
before he hits that open road
baby, get ready, get set, don't go

looks things are fallen into place
feels like they're fallen apart
I've painted this big smile on my face
to hide my broken heart
if only he knew

this is where I don't say
what I want so bad to say
this is where I want to
but I won't get in the way
of him and his dreams
and spreading his wings

he's at the starting line of the rest of his life
as ready as he's ever been
got the hunger and the stars in his eyes
the prize is his to win
he's waiting on my blessings
before he hits that open road
baby, get ready, get set, please don't go...

Tuan Haji Shafiee Ahmad dalam kenangan

hari ni aku cuti.. meluangkan masa untuk ke rumah Allahyarham petang ni. terdapat sedikit masalah di konsulat, menyebabkan proses membawa jenazah balik tertangguh.. ya ALLAH... lancarkan segalanya untuk mereka.

hari ni aku bangun pagi walaupun tak kerja. sejak kerja aku akan automatik terjaga pukul 6.30am. aku tak terus bangun, tapi termenung sekejap mengingatkan diriku yang Tuan haji sudah tiada. sejak pemergian Tuan Haji aku lebih banyak diam. aku tak suka bersendirian kerana ia akan buat aku berfikir tentang Tuan Haji. i keep myself busy and try not to think.

semalam aku bercakap dengan seorang rakan di telefon. walaupun berbicara dengan linangan air mata, aku rasa lebih lega. lalu aku tahu mana silapku. aku memendam rasa. dan pagi ini, sambil menikmati sarapan aku mengarang curahan ingatanku pada Tuan Haji. semoga dengan berkongsi bersama para pembaca aku akan lebih kuat.

Tuan Haji Shafiee Ahmad... he is always a man with lots of plans. he says the unexpected, he does the unexpected. he is very unpredictable at times. Tuan Haji Shafiee is a man with visions. he knows what he wants and strive to it.

looking back to the first time i met him, he came in late. that was when he introduced the world of photography... and DSLR. i still remember how enthusiastic he was when talking about photography. never at any time i see that sparkle in his old eyes. only during photography class.

when i went to his office to talk about the camera, that was when i discovered that the old, hard-to-impress man was actually the Deputy Dean. yeah, he is very hard to be impressed. before i take my photos to him, i always make sure i show them to other people first. i want to present only the best to him.

and that has taught me that nobody is perfect. he has taught me that life is never easy, the theory we learn cannot always be applied. he taught me to see things in detail, not just the big picture.

many people come in ang go out of my life, but only a few had left memories.
you definitely had left lots of memories in mine...

al-Fatihah..

al-Fatihah..

datang kita daripada ALLAH, kepada ALLAH juga kita akan kembali.. aku terima hakikat itu namun aku merasakan terlalu cepat Tuan Haji Shafiee pergi. baru beberapa minggu lepas aku berbual dengan Tuan Haji tentang lawatan ke NZ, semasa aku memintanya menjadi saksi perjanjian biasiswa. bergurau tentang jumlah duit yang bakal aku terima dan rancangan2 untuk tahun berikutnya..

itulah Tuan Haji.. full of plans for the students. buat aku sentiasa bersemangat ke kelas. he has a way in dealing with people. he always know what to say. at least what to say to me. i still remember the first time i entered his class. it was PhotoCommunication. he introduced DSLR to us. at first i did not plan to buy; i don't have the bucks. but somehow i can't help thinking about it and Mak was so kind to lend some to me.and there, in my room, my dearest EOS, my darling, my sweetheart which i don't wish to touch at the moment because it reminds me of him.

and the day we spent at TSquare when we bought the camera. i regret that i couldn't join the seminar. i always wanted to see him giving a talk because he also teach us Effective Speaking. but we were asked to wait outside as there were not much space. so we went to the theme park instead. then he told us that actually we could go in. i said "takpe lah Tuan Haji.. maybe next time." without even knowing that there will never be next time for me..

but i feel good as i had always been around him whenever he needed my help. i never said no to his requests. no matter how hectic my schedule is, i always make sure i have time for him. for he is quite similar to my father... as in attitude and mentality. they are both the greatest fathers and they both sing. well, my father sings the loudest. maybe because of the similarities that made me very close to him.

and he always had time for me as well. just send an sms and he would definitely return my call. i always ensure that my performance is up to his standard because i hate to disappoint him. i just can't take things easy when it comes to his subjects, although none of the subjects have final exam. he has faith on me, and i feel special.

Tuan Haji, you will be remembered as somebody who has given me a new perspective in life. you are a man with principles, and you hold on to them. you made me feel special and appreciated everytime you ask for my help. you have helped me discovered a new world to camera lenses. you had taught me how to be a better speaker. you had done so many things, affect every inch of my life, touch the sides of my innerself where nobody had, discovered the "me" deep inside my soul and of your touch, advises, encouragement, knowledge, exposure and experience, i thank you with all my heart. you will be missed.

i will continue this journey without you by my side to answer my questions or criticize my photos. i will have to move on for you might hate me for being sad about your departure. i know you wouldn't want your departure to affect my cheerfulness. losing you is one of the hardest thing i have to face in life.

thank you for the moment, Tuan Haji... and i hereby move on...

life's like that lah..

sejak dua tiga hari ni aku berbalas email dengan seseorang yang aku baru kenal, tapi dah agak rapat. malah lebih rapat daripada kenalan2 lain. bercerita tentang realiti hidup yang tak seindah coretan novel indah. bercerita tentang sengsara dan derita yang tidak mampu terucap bila berdepan. aku hairan dan kagum dengan semangatnya. kalau aku di tempatnya pasti sudah berendam air mata.

begitulah hidup.. yang kita lihat indah, tak semestinya menggembirakan. yang kita lihat daif, tak semestinya mendukacitakan. yang penting adalah penerimaan. bagaimana kita menerima keadaan itu, bagaimana kita menangani situasi itu. seperti yang pernah aku terbaca suatu masa dahulu.. "it is not what the problem is, but how you face it that matters". yeah i guess it's true. ada yang tidur bertilamkan emas tapi akhirnya bunuh diri. ada yang tidur di atas kotak di kaki lima tapi mampu senyum ketika bangun pagi.

lalu seperti yang aku sering katakan pada diriku, aku ingin berpesan kepada teman2 di luar sana.. hidup itu bukan untuk mendapatkan apa yang kita tiada, tapi untuk memanfaatkan apa yang kita ada. yang lain kamu fikir sendiri...

cheers :)

work..! work..!

itulah akibatnya bila internet rumah tak berfungsi beberapa hari. bencii~! dah la kat GIS memang tak ada masa nk blogging. nk reply email pun tak sempat! but things are back to normal.. so, readers, enjoy the masterpieces.

i don't really have a good writer's touch. i just love to write. i write those before i go to sleep in these few days without internet. forgive me if u rasa my pieces agak jiwang.. tapi cuba la look at it from other point of view. tak semestinya yang jiwang tu berkait dengan cinta2. haha~ (ye lah tuu!)

anyway, sejak akhir2 ni banyak pulak benda yang come out at the last minute. so kat office sangat hectic. tapi biasalah.. i suka kerja! anyway, gaji pun dah masuk.. :) i think i somehow have got the idea of what kind of job do i want to do after i graduate. i suka information sharing and promoting and customer service. i tak suka kerja yang melibatkan prosedur2. i like sumtin that need me to talk to people. yeah, that's it. i like people-related jobs.

i cant stop thinking about being bonded to the government... haih~ takpe lah. dah guna duit kerajaan, kena lah luangkan masa sikit. go Sarah~!

cheers :)

masterpieces saat2 streamyx buat hal~ Part 2

memandang sunyi ke luar jendela
saat hujan belum reda
aku masih berlagu dalam hati
kau masih jauh dan aku menanti


kalau matahari boleh bicara
pastinya akan bilang padaku;
"
kalau harapan kelabu cuma,
bagaimana kamu masih menunggu?"


lalu akan ku balas bicaranya
"
aku menurut jejakmu sahaja..
saat bulan lari darimu,
kau masih berinya cahaya
"

dan sekalian alam akan mengerti
signifikasi dirimu padaku


kalau setia mustahil padamu
takkan aku meminta
namun untuk berpaling darimu
hanya bisa buat aku terluka
jangan dipinta melepas kamu
kerana hatiku tak bisa

dan untuk sekian kali
aku lafazkan janji
walau tanpamu aku sepi
rela hatiku hidup sendiri...

cheers :)

andai penantian ini
perlu seribu tahun lagi
aku rela...
dalam menangisi kesunyian jiwa
mengikat hati dengan setia
lalu jemariku menyusun
daun kering di musim gugur
membilang hari dan waktu
ke tarikh kita bakal ketemu
mungkin juga setiaku bisa rapuh
dalam melihat daun yang perang
gugur ditelan bumi, menyubur tanah
untuk musim bunga berikutnya
hampa hatiku setiap kali suria menjelma
dan aku masih seorang perindu
namun aku gagahi juga
asal akhir nanti bersamamu
lalu kepada setiap pengembara
yang berhenti untuk menemaniku
aku bilang jangan, kerana
andai penantian ini
perlu seribu tahun lagi
aku rela...

cheers :)
