"I don't want to talk about how you broke my heart"

1. ah, I was quite busy hanging out with few mates these days. Playing game console, having coffees and etc. It was just so good to really have these remaining days left recalling the all good and sad moments from the beginning we first arrived here in Brisbane until now. Twas indeed a very much emotional conversation, but seemed trying to hinder those upsetting feelings with the best jokes and laughters that we could do. =)

2. Another 6 more days left, still reluctantly counting. *sigh* Oh, Mr. Time, you know that I never ask anything big from you since I was a toddler. I was still moving patiently; even though, you were slightly cruel to me when I was run out of times doing the assignment. But, this time, I just need you to move slower than usual. Plz?

*I must be crazy talking stuffs like these*

3. Ah, just put that feeling aside at the moment. Yes, yesterday was the best day being me as Mohd Zamri, probably the happiest one so far. Checking the results, and Allhamdulilah, I think I improved and in fact did quite well for this one hectic semester. Even though it might not be as good and best as how my other mates did; I am still proud of myself and definitely grateful to Him. The patience, the anxiousness and the almost-give-up feeling - they are just paid off. =). Praise to God, again.

It's just so good if I could have a person that I could really share this happiness with.

7 (Yesterday)

"The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase, if you pursue happiness you'll never find it"


1. Never let anyone tell you that your dream is too far from reach.

2. Never let the bitterness of others influence your decisions to have the life you want.

3. Never allow the insecurities of others creep into your mind to let them overtake your own.

4. Never forget your dreams.

5. Never believe that one person, no matter how convincing they may be, has all the answers.

6. Never forget how lucky you are to have a passion- lots of people never find theirs.

7. Always know that what scares you is usually what will make you better.

8. Always remember what makes you happy.

(Amanda, 2010)

Sayu sungguh hati ini malam ini.
Entah kenapa.
Bila cuba melelapkan mata,
tidak pula tidur hendaknya.
Ah mengapa sahaja hati ini.
Rasa seolah-olah malam ini tidak seperti malam yang biasa.
Sungguh sayu.

p.s: I do realise too that I get easily f*ck up lately.

15 (Yesterday). 14 (Today)

"Kita ini hidup bukan menongkat dunia"
Translation: We don't just live forever in this world.

I have a review of movie which I supposed to post it yesterday, but for some reasons, I couldn't finish writing it. Too tired. Ah, I promise I'll post it soon.

Anyway, I would like to wish all the Moslems 'Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha'. May you enjoy and have good moments with the beloved ones. =)

p.s: Oh, my final raya celebration here in Brisbane.

"As long as we respect each other, everything will be just OK"

A: Do you feel jealous seeing me talking to that guy?
B: No, I'm not. I was just...
*She immediately interfered before that guy could finish his words.*
A: Good! Ah, you don't have to. You and me, we are just good friends. Nothing special!
*B left with genuine disappointment*

p.s: Too much of drama series today.

"Keep blogging"

1. Ah, another lovely and fun day apart from meeting Jo on the other day. Fa and her friend are finally here in Brisbane. Smile. Twas just so good to see her again after our last winter holiday in New Zealand. *Welcome2!*. So, since I wanted to get some groceries stuff, we went to West End morning market today. Bringing them around and feeling the aussie weekend routine. Hehe. It seemed to be fun, I mean walking and passing by random people and others. Plus, that was my 2nd time there even though I hv been living here for almost 2years.

2. Yeah, we walked from one stall to another stall. So, I stopped at this one selling fruit stall looking for the mangoes. 2 ripe mangoes for 5aud. Who care not to stop, aye?. LOL. As I was busy looking at them, suddenly, someone tapped me from back. She smiled. I was freeze at the moment. Ah, I know her, but God, how couldn't I remember her name. She kept smiling again.

3. Gosh! My brain was so stuck and I really could not recall her name. I could only remember her last name which is 'Siong'.

She asked "Do you know me?".
"Ah, of course I know you" I whispered.
*me thinking. Keep thinking vigorously*
"It's me, Jody" She said.
*I smiled*

Yeah, it's Jody. How I could have forgotten that name! Me idiot! My profoundest apology, missy. So, we talked for a while and the mangoes were put aside for a moment. Asking about studies, workplace, life in brief and etc. Such a nice girl, I believe. Very friendly, humble and definitely easy-going person. For your information, that was our first meeting each other ever, which means, we never talked face-to-face before and it happened today unexpectedly. We have been knowing each other through blogging and friends in Facebook. So, I was quietly excited; even though I looked quite freeze and stumble a bit in front of her. LOL. Anyway, twas indeed really nice meeting and talking to you, Jody. We should probably have some cups of coffees before I'm heading back for good.

4. Ah, what really a good day today! Having good friends around, meeting new people, welcoming environment and definitely a good weather.

Can anyone tell me, how can I have no reason to stay here in Brisbane.

"Even SHREK still deserves for happy ending"

Saya suka malam tadi.
Berjalan-jalan seorang diri di QUT.
Senyap sahaja, tapi tetap indah.
Bintang-bintang pun berkerlipan pada saya.
Mungkin, sudah lama kita tidak bersua katanya.
Yelah, sejak saya sudah berpindah. Jarang sungguh saya berjalan
diwaktu-waktu begitu.
"Hai bintang! Saya rindu awak semua"
Saya senyum.
Eh, kucing itu masih ada lagi disitu.
Betul! Si tompok yang kelihatan seperti sombong tetapi penakut. Heh.
Dia hanya keluar waktu malam sahaja.
Kasihan. Mungkin, disiang hari terlalu banyak haiwan berbulu besar yang lain.
Si anjing. Yang gebu dan terjelir lidahnya.
Jaga diri ya, si tompok.
Saya akan pulang tidak lama lagi. Oh, bila entah kita akan berjumpa lagi?
Saya pasti akan merindui semua ini.
Woolies. Kebab O'clock. Creative industries. Lain-lain lagi.
Setiap satunya.
Ah, kenapa hari berlalu dengan begitu pantas?

"Make the best of what we have"

1. Today was just too lovely to be compared with the other boring days that I went through lately. I woke my a** up quite early this morning, went to uni and met mum (Jo Carr) in her room. Ah, what a happy lady she is! Welcoming me with her big smiles and definitely healthy this time.
* She has been sick lately; so, seeing her around healthily this time somehow makes me to feel good and happy too*

2. The conversation was pretty casual. No pressure, and Jo is always motherly when it comes to a leisure talk. She could fully lend all the ears and give some wise words to us if she felt so. So, we talked a lil bit about our academic stuffs at the beginning, but towards the end we moved slowly talking about myself and herself. She was telling that she'll be retiring possibly end of this year in December. Ah, twas indeed a shocked one, I mean really a sudden decision. I was recently being informed that our coordinator in Malaysia has been replaced with a new man, and today, I got to know that she's going to 'leave' us too. Hmm, how could I not to feel at least 'missing something' feeling . "It's time, zam. Let me be a good grandma and play more happy musics". I smiled. Ah, she's probably in many ways. She would need a proper rest after so long managing and coordinating this twinning program. Yup, for many years, since my seniors times, I could see a lot of her great contributions on this program besides the other important people like Bob, Jan and Mary. She must've been tired, I reckon. Plus, her health condition seems to be finer if she could have more rests and play with the grandchildren.

3. Ah, don't you worry about us, Jo. Even though knowing that you're retiring from academic field might sounds a bit bitter to me, but I'm absolutely happy for you and so the others too, I bet. Thank you very much for everything that you have provided for me here since the beginning. Your inspiring words, your lovely pats on the back, everything. My sincerely thank you. I'll be missing you very badly.

Take care, madame.=')
Play more musics.

"If everyone could think, there might be less conflicts or zero war"

20 more days left exactly from today before I'm leaving Brisbane for good.
*Now I know precisely how the seniors used to feel*
Every night, I'm thinking hardly to have at least a reason that can make me to stay here.
Not because of entertainment and freedom that it offers, but because of the place itself.
I just love Brisbane as B.R.I.S.B.A.N.E.
Indeed, a very lay back, peaceful and welcoming place.
Unsurprisingly, Brisbane has been a very good and wonderful 'teacher' for me teaching about how life works.

For some cultural and humanistic reasons, I feel more appreciated and acknowledge here.
I have learnt about the real friendship who could be with you through thin and thick,
not only among the local people but in thinking-Malaysian group as well.
No matter where I go; I could feel a strong sense of belonging.
I am being called politely as a 'mate' rather than inappropriate terms or adjectives.
ah, there are just too many random friendly people who could say hello to you for not a big reason.

How am I going to leave these good things for certain of somethings which I think they shouldn't work that way?

Yes, I miss mum, dad, and the whole family.
I miss the foods.
I miss breathing in my country, who doesn't?
but, definitely not the inappropriate attitudes which I think 'certain of them' still fail to overcome.

Lack of sense of respect.
Lack of good manners.
Lack of here and there as a basic human being.

ah, if this 'certain of them' could do at least a rational thinking for them, probably it is a good place that invites everyone to come.

p.s: Well, I'm still looking the right euphemism for this 'certain of them'.

"When was the last time I get real happy?"

Lately, I realise that blog seems to be a main place for me to pour my feelings on. Even though, most of the posts were written quite short, but I really found a lot of satisfactions and relieve transforming those discontented feelings into words. Mum said sometimes it is better writing or drawing than barking if we felt screwing up, and I think it works on me. She is just super genius!

p.s: Ah, it is better to have something rather than nothing to be share with. =)

Monday, 8 November 2010


It was indeed a very emotional night for me.
I seemed to smile looking at them, at every face to be exact.
Laughing, teasing and cracking some good jokes with them.
Nodding when they left to say 'see you again'.
But, I could not deny that it's really upsetting me.

It's even worst for not able to see both of you.
Thank you very much for the cake.

Hari-hari yang sunyi,
memang sepi,
dan mungkin akan lebih sunyi lagi pada hari-hari yang akan mendatang.
