Hi Friends. Can you spare a moment to sedekah Al-Fatihah to my aunty, Hamidah Harun, who had just passed away this morning? Al-Fatihah.
Hamidah Harun passed away at the Old Folks Home in Tanjung Rambutan, Perak. She left no children, and suffered from dementia.
She’s 81 years old. I barely know her, but I remembered that she once worked as a cook in Mecca for the Malaysians who went to performed haj
We call her, Mak Nyah Hamidah. ‘Mak Nyah’ is a common name for the second daughter in Perakian households.
I remembered visiting her in Parit Buntar. She was married once, and had a child who died after birth. Then she was divorced, lived alone.
The last decade, she came back from Mecca and lived at Taman Maju Rapat, in Ipoh. Then she suffered from dementia, had to send her to a home
Dear Mak Nyah Hamidah, I don’t know you well, but you have connected to a lot of people during your work as a cook. Rest in Peace.
Innalillahi wa inna ilaihiraji’un. ‘Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return’.”
On that note, lets not let it be a sombre morning. Have a good one, Tweet-freaks. Love lots from a very hungry, sleep deprived, hippy poet.
I want pancakes for breakfast. 😦 Parents gonna go balik kampung for the funeral. I had to stay home to do work. Will get some later.
Didn’t get my pancakes, but nasi lemak kerang will definitely get out the best in me. I mean, literally.

One done, Two to go, but lunch break and gonna go dropby somewhere.
Turned on the radio. Nearly gag. Must’ve been an akon song.
Note to self, buy glam current issue. Got hot stuff.
Something’s not right. Why am i having a flu?
Oh, dia dah mati yek? *muka blur*
My first Coke after 10 days.
Only you with 112 feat. B.i.g. And mase. Love!
Wrong timing. Visiting Opah and she’s asleep. Feels like napping beside her. Pening gak panas-panas cenggini.
2 Fashion magazines, heavier than my laptop. Hurm…
I think Eh! tried to do the same spread as GLAM. Only, wasn’t glam enough. 🙂
Okay, I seriously think Nurul Syuhada is damn hawt. *calms self*
I think it’s time for me to change my desktop wallpaper to Emma Watson’s Burberry ad. 🙂
What they need to do next is an androgynous spread. Make all these gorgeous ladies don a man-suit ala Coco Chanel.
Uuuuu, Alex Watson, Emma’s brother is kinda hawt.
We have different taste, of course. If we didn’t, I would’ve just fallen for myself.
I’m a sucker for documentaries. After that, I feel so stupid. Ironic.
I love the word “unisex”. I’ve always love looking at saloon signboards saying “Unisex Saloon”. I guess since then, I knew. 🙂
Cynics. You humour me.
*cries* I want that room, those shelves, that posters on the wall.
Time to fix myself some dinner. Alone at home doing work and I’m hungry. *sigh*
I prefer cooking with butter than olive oil or normal oil. I know it’s fattening but the smell is much better. 🙂
Okay feet, wake up, I need to walk.
#wordoftheday ubiquitous. carries a similar meaning to “muka bersepah”.

Got another poetry reading gig this Thursday, for the International Women Day closing ceremony. Don’t know if I should be excited or not.
I have now understand the circumstances that comes with performing in front of audience. The nerve wrecking situation. 😦
As much as I am a self-proclaimed narcissist, I don’t like people’s attention on me. I’m not that person. That’s the scariest part.
Well, okay. I’m gonna read a Rilke poem for the ceremony, aside from 2 of my own. And one, about my mother. 🙂
If you’re lucky, I’m gonna learn how to play the piano and sing to you Sarah McLachlan’s “Ice Cream”. Just so.
Massimo Vignelli on his corporate identity design that has not changed for 40 years, “how can they even improve, they got the best already.”
As much as it sound arrogant, but he’s right. Only a good designer can design something that outlive time. 🙂
Some guys really have the confidence that they’re very very handsome, smart and likeable. It’s amazing what confidence can do to one.

Chocolate and coffee. Very Argentinian of me. I just need to tango now. But it takes two to tango, and I’m already a one-woman circus.
