I think about you constantly, whether it's with my mind or my heart. ~ Albany Bach Reid

I mean it. Full stop.

I may not have a superb memory like trying to recall what actually happened on this particular day on this particular place (if you’re reading this, Nala I know you’d be saying ‘cuya kan lale’). It’s a bit sad actually.

I can’t be much of help if let say about a minute ago some adorable young kid who was standing close to me suddenly vanished into thin air if the officers start asking me questions about the colour of his t-shirt, his face anything. Cos’ I am not good at that, spotting things and recalling scenes. It’s not one of my many spe
cialties. There goes my nomination for Best Eye Witness Ever in Crime.

Yet. I remember words people say to me, especially promises. I hold on to that. It matters to me. Cos’ the thing is, I don’t say words that I don’t mean. Maybe it’s a weakness of mine trying to keep telling myself that for some people, words are just words but you shouldn’t say things when you don’t mean it.

I mean what I say. As simple as that.

Ada apa dengan Adamaya?

I don’t really get it. It’s a story about a wife who cheats. Yeah, shoot me. I mean, people are going all gaga about it, but all I can see is that. A cheating wife.

My students, bless ‘em for being more analytical now for trying to understand more than the surface, are rather excited about 'Adamaya'. It’s about that cute chick, Lisa Suria..oops Surihani most probably that have them hooked to that series. I tried to be aware of the values instill within, but a part of watching Amani playing all cutey and naive, I have nothing else to say.

Seriously though, it’s a taboo that shouldn’t ever happen in any marriage, right. But from what my dear colleague said that day while we were having breakfast, nowadays it’s not rare anymore to have wives playing lurvy-durvy behind their husbands’ back and I was like..'wwhaat?'. I mean, it’s wrong already right when being a wife and think about some guy which is not your hubby guy. Gees.

The question is, are the husbands being all nice and forgivable (like Adam) when their wives two-time them or they (the husbands) have no guts to take actions?

'Adamaya' is over now. Am all ears waiting for reviews of a new drama series that women plus my students spend time watching. If it’s good, then you’ll hear nothing about it from me.

Of making all the right (apt?) moves

Picture this.

You’ve reached your house and you turn off the ignition.

You’re staring at the wall before you. Everything is so quiet. Nothing seems to bother you.

Not the neighbours, not even the vehicles passing by.

You barely move a muscle.

Next thing you know, you glance at your watch and there.You’ve been sitting behind the wheel for 15 minutes!

You let out a long, heavy sigh.

15 minutes. Even the private, I-don’t-bother-your-life-so-you-don’t-bother-mine lady next door seems to get a bit restless.

Body needs to be revived, mind hungers for words of wisdom.

Yet you still don’t know what to do.
