Smell

Have you ever entered a house and you smell something so familiar that it reminds you of something? Well,  I went to the bathroom in Latifah’s house,the wife of Qareem, another staff with 3 children that I am now staying due to certain circumstance.

When I entered the bathroom, I suddenly smell something so familiar to something I don’t know. I was thinking hard when was the last time I smell it because it seems that I haven’t smell it for quite some time. So, I searched for the smell and finally I saw a diaper, yes a diaper , more or less a used diaper LOL.

Okay..okay..smelling a diaper is definitely not my latest hobby but it made remember why I felt so close to it that it really made me feel nostalgic even though I don’t know why it made me feel such way. After some flashback moment, I realize that the smell of the diaper was the smell I always had to endure when I was changing my Mak Su (Aunt)  babies since Fauzan, Ira and Lutfi was born.

Every time I go back to my Mak Tok (grandmother) house, I would take turn changing their diaper with my siblings. Although it was not the best job anyone would be doing but holding a baby and changing their diaper can be quite fun that I kinda like it. Somehow  all of my Mak Su’s children smells exactly the same when they are still a baby. So, that smell kinda stick with me for quite some time. That it makes me miss that time. Hey hey… its not that I want to get married and be a mother or something.

Its just that, to come across this smell again, makes me realize that not just everyone have a different smell, every house have a different smell,   every place have their own smell that when you go there, you know that you have arrived at that place.

Just like the smell of your home, your country and wherever a place that you are close to being in that place. Reminds me of Suzz, a Holland exchange student to USM I met back when I came to pick her up at the airport . She said that somehow Malaysia have a different smell from other country she used to visit and made her feel right at home. Suzz have this thing about staying abroad, she gets homesick, but strange enough she doesn’t feel like that. Instead, she love it, the language, the food, everything about Malaysia that she is willing to learn as much as she can about Malaysia through out her exchange.

While I still figure out what kind of smell that Malaysia especially Penang have that made her feel such way other than the amount of garbage everywhere. It was until I went to exchange myself and now back here that I realize the differences. Funny that someone told me that a Malaysian they know missed Malaysia so much that he actually went to the garbage bin just to get the smell of Malaysia again.

Though its not the best smell one should be smelling but its kind of true. The way it stinks for a ‘mat saleh’ to smell what someone I knew says about the “Smell like Hell, Taste Like Heaven Fruit”  – Durian, or the Tempoyak , or the Pekasam, and all the bad smelled food to some but to us Malaysian, its certainly the smell that really makes you feel at home. That’s Malaysia, no matter how bad it smells but we still love it.. don’t you..???

One thing for sure, here I smell the freshness of the air even the strawberries, the air is not so smokey and all the rush smell like in KL or Penang. I smell flower due to the Spring season but nothing compared to the smell of the mixed smell of hawkers cooking from different race, all together from the roadside or the smell of my favorite Goreng Pisang deeply fried, or even my dear USM which always smell like living in a jungle with all its old tree and the smell of the grass everytime I pass under the trees nearby the convocation field or the Tasik Harapan recreation lake.

And nothing smells the best when I reach home by the next 21 days just so that I can say…

Home Sweet Home

The Perfect Ending…!!!

Love it…!!! Love it…!!!! Love it…!!! Love it…!!!Love it…!!! Love it…!!!

Every question
Every answer too
Ever constant
Ever changing view

It’s a memory in the sun
Or it’s hell in the darkness

Maybe it’s all around to see
If we try
Maybe it’s been inside of me
All this time

Love love love
Love love love
Love love love

Love love love
Love love love
Love love love

Crazy with it
Crazier without
Never certain
Never full of doubt

Now you feel it, now you don’t
Do you know what you’re feeling?

Where did it come from and where does it go
If it were right in front of me would I know?

Love love love
Love love love
Love love love

Love love love
Love love love
Love love love

Love love love
Love love love
Love love love

Superman

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me

I’m more than a bird…I’m more than a plane
I’m more than some pretty face beside a train
It’s not easy to be me.

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see

It may sound absurd…but don’t be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed…but won’t you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
And it’s not easy to be me.

Up, up and away…away from me
Well it’s all right…You can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy…or anything…

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I’m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
inside of me …… inside of me …ya inside of me… inside..of me

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
I’m only a man looking for a dream

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet

It’s not easy … wu.. hoo.. hoo..
It’s not easy to be.. me…

Ireland Korean Drama…???

I can’t believe there’s a korean drama with this title. Ok i think im definitely missing the rainy Ireland to a point that i would be watching it haha. Haven’ t managed to watch yet, some links are broken so will see if its good. Owh and looks like Hyun Bin from Kim Sam Soon is the hero hoho Lee Na Young from Please Teach Me English,so will see how well this pair goes in this one.

  • Alternative Title: 아일랜드 / Aillaendeu
  • Genre: Drama
  • Film Date: September, 2004
  • Total Episodes: 16
  • Korea Casts:
    Hyun Bin, Kim Min Joon, Kim Min Jung, Lee Na Young
  • Description:
    A westernized Irish adoptee, Joong-Ah inevitably flies back to Korea to confront her past and to see the country she is really from, only to fall in love with her brother, Jae-Bok. Their love is painful, as they are never meant to be together as lovers, but merely as brother and sister. The show’s message is that there is no such thing as noble innocent love and that love is adversity itself. Therefore, love mustn’t be impeded by so-called “destiny” or family, no matter how ironic or difficult the case may seem. Although destiny is cruel and arduous, the two young lovers radiate pure happiness. The show describes how love survives the tragic bondage of family, destiny and romance.

Strawberry Picking :D

Sorry for the delay. Couldn’t go to the strawberry farm because they have just opened the farm for public so now that its open, here we are picking strawberries and eating it at the same time. I never tasted any strawberry this fresh, even in Cameron, its not this fresh. Usually in Malaysia it taste a bit sour but this one was …..juicy…sweet…and when you bite, its slightly chilled due to the cold weather so you can even feel the freshness on your tongue. hoho.

Sungguh enak dimakan begitu saja….
