Wow! It has been awhile (too long) that I have blogged anything into this one.
Anyway, I have already updated Is This What You Call Literature??? blog,
added two new poems that have been inspired (forced) due to the 1Malaysia concept.
Well, not really forced but more of a workshop thingy that I had participated in
GAPENA's 1Malaysia poetry writing workshop last Friday (30 Oct-1 Nov 2009)
at Akademi Kenegaraan BTN, KL.
Here you go and enjoy or hate them: Ikrar Serumpun and Balada Pa' Belalang

It has been awhile (too long, in fact) since I wrote anything in this blog. Anyway, being a daughter and under care of parents, I have been nagged quite a number of times (too much I believe) to stabilize myself so that I can help my parents to support myself and other siblings, and of course, my parents. I believe it is everyone's responsibilities to pay gratitude to their parents and take care of them in return.

However, when I told them I wanted to pursue my ambition as a lighting designer, the reaction I got from my dad was, "Oh, so that's like, struggling for an electric engineer post." At first I ignored that tell-tale signs. As I return home for the Eid Mubarak festive and stayed at my parents' for awhile, again the subject was brought up.

I kept this to myself, "Why is it so difficult to be a lighting designer here (in Malaysia)?" Well, possible reason(s) would be:
  1. It's a men's world out there. Only individuals with Electrical qualifications can do the job.
  2. The theatre scene here is S.L.O.W. ... More work to be done here. Theatre is considered non-profitable at the moment; hardly any performances get profit from tickets' sales in comparison to movies' tickets' sales.
  3. Skepticism... "Can a gal do lights/technical theatre?" Yes, I got this from a friend of mine who persuaded me to design lights for his show. I also got the same response from other events' contractors such as ShowGear, Orange Events. But again, they pointed out that there are girls that do audio visual work like laying cables, followspot operators, soundperson out there only that they are not highlighted and/or they are still a minority.
So what I am going to is...

ramadhan dah dekat...

segala setan, iblis dan lain2 diikat.
poselah kita, dapat berkat. tapi masih juga ada yang "disakat" :D

tak lupa juga salurkan zakat, ikut syariat. tapi masih juga ada yang bertangan berat

tibanya malam lailatuqadar, malam penuh rahmat
malam dinanti baraqah mengatasi segala nikmat
yang berperangai setan berubah umpama malaikat (Insya Allah!)

itulah... ramadhan penghulu segala bulan

selamat nyambut ramadhan al-mubarak kpd sume saudara seagama kita di seantero dunio!

renungan hari ini, ketika ini

kerana cinta, sayang dan rindu maka ramai yang menderita, merana juga terpedaya.

kerana tiga perkataan inilah manusia jadi bingung dan buntu.

kerana cinta, sayang dan rindu jugalah air mata ini gugur kesekian kalinya.


kenapa air mata ini menitis gara-gara insan bergelar lelaki?

amaran keras: gue bukan antilelaki ya. cuma gue hairan dengan sifat & sikap manusia bergelar lelaki ini. ada sesiapa boleh bantu agar gue tidak bias dalam perhitungan hidup?
