Simply blogging

Blogging is fun.

It’s about throwing words in whatever ways you want – or not.

Or simply put pictures to tell the story. Simple. Interesting.

Even a blurry picture also can expose a powerful story behind it.

And the best thing is…

Blogging is about trying to show the cool side of a person’s world and ideas and thoughts and whatever crap wonderful things there is out there.

In other words?

TIME TO SHOW OFF!! (admit it – that’s the deep down real intention in any blogger’s heart)

Bloggers are freelance writers,

Writers that put even stupid words into a make-sense-words of wisdom,

And wisdom words means freedom,

Freedom to show the world,

World on a brighter side and its evolution,

Evolution in shaping a better generation.

My round amigo

This cat.

During the school break recently, a Doraemon road show for school break activity was held at e@Curve, Kota Damansara.

I only knew about the road show at the last  minute as in 3 days before the road show is over.

And so I dragged my two sisters asses to accompany me to the road show.

No, I don’t believe that only kids can have fun with Doraemon cause I saw more adults than kids at the road show. Guess parents has their own technique to be camouflage and used their kids in order to approach Doraemon.

The thing is that I am on a tight budget so I have to be careful not to clean out all of the shelves and bring back a car load of Doraemon stuff from the road show. However, all of these merchandise are limited edition and it is quite hard to find good Doraemon merchandise in Malaysia.

I told one of my sister – if you see me go nuts, grabbing all of the Doraemon merchandises and the total price for the items are more than my located budget, slap me and whisper in my ears loudly ‘Your wallet is bleeding!’.

Se we went to the road show on its very last day. It was Sunday. The traffic is heavy and we had a hard time looking for a parking space.

Talking about determination!

Once we arrived at the road show, I could not control myself but picking up every items and one of my sister literary tried to stop me from being wild in grabbing the merchandise.

After I regained back my sanity , thanks to both of my sisters, I then took only what I need (seems like I need all of it) and quickly went to the counter.

 Doraemon limited edition Touch N Go card. Gotta have one!

Photo session time with Doraemon, I have to control myself when I saw kids just cut the Q and their parents allow it! Wow! Some good parenting huh.

But it was worth the wait.

This is my round blue amigo since I was a kid.

And my wallet hates me for it.

Elephants all the way

I went to Kuala Lumpur early to settle some stuff before my graduation day.

But staying at the same spot in the same city really cracks my nerves and boredom.

And so I made a last-minute plan with my sisters to have a short budget road trip by visiting our dearly friend at Pahang.

Thus, we kicked off on our 2 hours plus drive journey to Bandar Maran, Pahang.

Bandar Maran is located about an hour drive from Kuantan and approximately 3 hours safe speeding drive from Kuala Lumpur. It’s a humble town with humble people and folks and with a serene atmosphere and ambience. In other words, this place is peaceful.

There we met with a not-so-old-friend who then introduced me and my sisters with his crazy-kick-ass-funny-adorable-craze friends which made our trip even more exciting.

Since we are always stuck in the urban busy living lifestyle, so we wanted to look up on some back to the nature activities as our escapade plan. I love travelling back to nature. As a scout since I was a kid, nature serves the best holiday version for me.

I myself is always fascinated with elephants. I always wanted to ride on elephants and splash them with waters. In Peninsular Malaysia, the only place where you can ride on elephants in nature is at Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, Pahang. No ZOO-just nature-with jungles, real jungles.

Enough said….

I’m not sure if the elephant is excited or just wailing in an excruciating pain because of the load posing on his back

For your info, the river is dirty. I even almost touch the elephant’s poo while having bath time with them because the shit looks like mud!

Advice? Quickly wash yourself and change the clothes after you have a bath with these adorable creature. There is a toilet with shower rooms provided at the sanctuary. Clothes? Wash it thoroughly!

The show only starts at 2pm until 4pm. If you are lucky, you can have a bath with the baby elephant just like I did. But if the tide of the river is unpleasant, enjoy yourself by feeding the elephants with papaya and sugar cane and bananas.  The workers already prepare all of the food so no worries. 

Do not miss your chance to ride on these elephants.

The best thing is that the entrance fee is FOC-free of charge.

You can make some donation to help maintaining the sanctuary.

This particular elephant here is old. She is suffering from I cant remember what disease and is deaf in her left ear and she is partially blind. She used to be a working elephant, just like any other elephants in this sanctuary. Their job is to help the rangers and workers carry big logs and chains as well as to calm any wild elephant that the rangers found in any mission in rescuing lost wild elephants.

Do not ever attempt to provoke these elephants because they can turn from gentle and loving and adorable into your worst nightmare.

They love to eat, so bribe them with food.

Poke it and like!

Only at Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, Pahang.

An uneven line

Found these drawings.

I drew these when I was admitted at the Slim River Hospital due to an acute asthma attack.

I was so bored and the only thing that I can do is by drawing albeit that my right hand is connected to the cord for drip.

My hand may be injured but I don’t care.

These are the collection of several drawings that I drew when I was at the hospital.

I was annoyed by the patient next bed so I imagined to have a dog chewed her slowly or hit her with my imaginary car:

The other night I dreamt a lion came to visit me, looking at me while licking his mouth. I was on my bed and he stares at me right into his eyes. Boy this is a one hungry, messy lion. Suddenly I heard a laugh. I opened my eyes. Bad dream of a lion wanted to eat me. I looked at the patient next bed. She was laughing while sleeping. I was….zombie?

I drew this and imagined that the lion would visit her instead. But I’m sure the lion won’t lick his mouth while looking at her. Instead will give this stare at her:

Spending few days in the hospital was not easy. I was down. Knowing that I am in a bondage of a sickness, I searched for a comfort for my spirit. Thus, in the middle of the night with the help of a little light, I drew Him.

And till this day, this drawing of mine gives me a some kind of unknown strength whenever I am sick.

The drawing is a mixture of a sketch and line up with a drawing pen.

If you notice, all of the drawings are not in line or uneven. I admit it, it is not beautiful or perfect. Oh well, that’s the drawing of a person who has this in her hand:

And I am amazed by those whom are cripple yet can draw a perfect masterpiece.

I may understand a little about them now. Pain is not an excuse to say that you can’t.

Thank you Lord.
