I am connected!

You know what happens when you get pissed or frustrated? You need theraphy! And what can be better than shopping? Kan?

Tapi kan, aku smalam theraphy sebelom even stress leh?

Jumpa si Juan where geeks go to heaven when their connection disconnects at Low Yat to buy stuff. Well actually, it was his turn nak shopping gila babiks punya. Aku tau what I wanted to get.



Packed gila Low Yat! But I sent straight to get what I wanted - which was my Maxis Broadband USB modem. Merasalah siap ada Chinese New Year special offer of a RM99 rebate for three months.

So now memang takde alasan tuk aku tak update blog la kan? Especially kalao live event ON THE SPOT katanya! Merasalah blog ni makin maju.

Dalam proses tuh dapat call, confirming I am out of The Malay Mail. Yeay! I think...
Sebenarnya company kan baru take over by new company - hati aku pun cam berat. Bukan sebab keruh ke apa perhubungan aku ngan company, just I think at the age of 32, it's time to move on.

Aku da 12 tahun menulis, half of that doing news and politics and half of that with entertainment. Add a couple of years doing practical production work, and I think it's time to move on. Nak buat duit ma!

So da confirm aku akan berhenti berkhidmat untuk The Malay Mail as of 1 Mac 2008. Cuma skang menunggu kalao company tima ke tak VSS application aku, atau meka nak absorb aku masuk NSTP. Personally, I think it's time to move on, so I hope meka tima VSS aku, so I can take my money and move on.

Merasalah cuti sebulan memana dulu ngan duit tuh sebelom ke mana-mana.

Where am I going?

Oh well, memang dunia hiburan lagik - dan ada kena mengena penulisan, but aku sejujurnya takleh cakap ke mana at the moment sebab layan options aku. Sebelom ni da tolak satu offer. Aku ada option aku minat... but we'll see. Kena tengok by end of the month for my VSS tengok camna dulu.

Until then, work like normal lor. Or as normal as it can be anyway.

Anyway, kita tunggu dan lihat jerk. I have a lot more to do in this industry, and I love it too much to leave it so there'll be more of me for sure.

Perasaan aku at the moment, cam stoned jer. Sebab dua reasons.

One, aku da lebih enam setengah tahun dok Balai Berita, it has become my home, and I will be very sad to leave it.

Secondly, to move away from my family kat The Malay Mail, termasuk skali adik beradik aku kat Harian Metro, Berita Harian dan New Straits Times.

To everyone of my friends there, I have about three weeks more with you guys, but I feel like I have to say my farewell awal so it won't be too sad when the moment of parting comes.

I'm especially gonna miss my good friends Rudy from Harian Metro, Farihad, Zul, Kak Cham, Serimah from Berita Harian, Raden from New Straits Times and Adly and Aqidah (ok ler.. ko skali ler Halim) from The Malay Mail. These people I have grown with in the last six and a half years and it won't be easy not being under the same roof with them anymore.

Sigh... apa apalah. Tu lah kalao kita stakat kuli batak orang. Heh!

Anyway, back to the shopping trip, si Juan lak yang betul betul shopaholic smalam.
First dia beli speaker ala sound system (besh gak bunyi), then external hard disk cam aku nya (160gb gak) and a cooling pad. Can't remember what else he bought.

Dia nak gak beli broadband tapi ada complications lak. Aku pas beli pun dia kata 24 hours baru activate sebab problem apa ntah. Pastu masa aku da gerak balik opis lepak, baru dia call kata ada mistake SIM card bagik kat aku problem so mintak aku mai balik change. Time tu da 8.30pm. They close by 9pm!!! And esoknya lak Chinese New Year eve so paham ler. So nak tanak aku rush ler.

Sampai in time for them to lock up. Tapi mungkin sebab rupa aku nampak mengundang simpati sebab mengah and very sparuh mati, meka bukak balik and pass me the card. Instantly activated hawau!!!!

Apa lagik, terus start pakai! Yeay! Now I am ALWAYS connected to the world. Merasalah!
Eh... ok la... nak ciao dulu. Be talking with you guys some more soon. Nak chill out sat....
