drive me crazy.

By julie"anne at 7:13 PM
Growing up in a poor family in a small village didn't give me the privilege of having luxurious things, which include the drivers' licence.

Done with high school, I worked part time at the supermarket and before the final year result was even announced I went to GMi, where I did my preparatory program before continuing to Germany.

In KL there're always public transports. So the need to own a personal vehicle never arose. Plus I didn't even want to burden my parent with my selfish 'need'.

Moving to Germany I depended a lot on the public transports too.

And here I am today, living in KL again. A big city with horrible traffic and accidents every now and then. What makes people think I ever need a drivers' licence?

Nevertheless, I usually get criticized by people who don't know me, saying my life is boring for not being able to drive. Hey who says I can't drive? I may not have the licence, but I still can drive ever since, well, maybe since I was even younger than you, when you ever first drove a car. I taught myself driving a stick at a very early age. Yes, stick. Some people nowadays still have difficulties driving manual, even with a licence. What about that, huh?

Dah tua pun tak ada lesen? Yes I get laughed at, a lot. Before you say something like that, you might want to do a background check.  Maybe people can't afford it. or maybe they had a difficult experiences. Or maybe they just simply don't want to.

To me, owning a car or a drivers' licence is not necessary. It is luxurious. And I, for now, simply can not afford it. It may be a necessity to some, but certainly not me.

Goodbye to sadness

Nakanaide hitori de
hohoende mitsumete
anata no soba ni iru kara

Don't cry alone
Look at me smiling
Because I will be by your side

Wein nicht allein
Schau mich an und lächle
Weil ich bei dir bin

One ticket to Farhampton, please. -HIMYM

Simple Song - The Shins

Well this is just a simple song
To say what you've done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run
You sure must be strong
When you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

When I was just nine-years-old
I swear that I dreamt
Your face on a football field
And a kiss that I kept
Under my vest
Apart from everything, but the heart in my chest

I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, and play like a stone
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives, so critical
As this little home

My life in an upturned boat
Marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift
Girl, what a gift
You tell me with your tongue
And your breath was in my lungs
And we float up over the rift

I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, and play like a stone
Could be there's nothing else in our lives, so critical
As this little home

Well is just a simple song
To say what you've done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run
You sure must be strong
When you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

Remember walking a mile to your house
A glow in the dark
I made a fumbling play for your heart
And the act struck a spark
You wore a charm on the chain that I stole
Especial for you
Love's such a delicate thing that we do
With nothing to prove
Which I never knew

It could've been us

By julie"anne at 4:42 PM
As if it was still not enough. I still had to witness a terrible accident.

Two speeding motorbikes collided with a car. And we were literally just right behind them. Had we been faster, we could be one of them. The car was trying to bypass the traffic by doing an illegal U-turn. That was when the motorbikes came from behind and hit the car on its side. There were 2 people on one bike and a man on the other. All were heavily injured.

One of the guys was at the road side, moaning in pain, calling mom and asking for help from the people. I was so shocked and terribly shaken. I couldn't even look at him. Mr. Yu played an important part, calling the police. I just sat there and cried.

The car driver could have gone just a little bit further to do U-turn (not further than a mile). See, how being irresponsible can cause injuries to the others? So please dear friends, please, please, please be responsible especially when you are on the road.

And don't speed.

Just as I thought everything in my life had moved the way I wanted. Just as I thought everything happened smoothly and accordingly, and this horrible thing happened and proved to me that I couldn't be more wrong.

My fate has been tested, yet again. It makes me more afraid. Why do bad things always happen to me? What did I do wrong? Am I cursed? Why?

I really hope I'd get them back. The things that hold my memories all these years. They are worth more than money can buy.

Thank you friends. Thanks for the moral supports. Thanks, sayang. But for now let me stay. I am still afraid to leave this house. I am afraid if even worse thing is gonna happen to me. If that happened, I wouldn't be able to stand it anymore.

Beggars.

By julie"anne at 10:11 AM
This morning while having breakfast at a mamak stall, a beggar approached us, force-shook Mr. Yu's hand and literally shoved his container to Mr. Yu's face without saying a single word. Since Mr. Yu didn't have small change, I volunteered giving him my money.

I pulled out my purse and handed him some coins (indicate several pieces of coins, which are probably worth more than a buck). To my surprise, he withdrew his container and walked away, leaving us dumbfounded as he received a one buck note from the people sitting at the next table.

Apparently beggars in Malaysia only accept notes and dare to turn down coins. Oh, they are too good for coins now while they live off people's sympathy? Too bad, I value every cent I earn. My coins may not be valuable to you and your container, but it's worth something to my piggy bank.

Please don't misunderstand when I say 'they live off people's sympathy'. I did neither mean to degrade anyone here, nor would I mind giving him more, if I had any. But this is too outrageous.

This event really blew our minds. We left the stall asking ourselves, what the hell just happened. We even forgot Mr. Yu's bag behind.

I still can't believe this just happens to us. Wow! just wow!
