Drinks for thought, for a change

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old lecturer.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the lecturer went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of
cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain looking and some expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand,
the lecturer said:
"If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up,
leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress."

"What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously

went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain
Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change."

"Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."


Have a greet week everyone.

CRAZITIVE ARE YOU?

Here i am at one of the place for 'kopi mahal' surfing the net while doing my research and paying my bills online. Sipping my hot chocalate and reading the newspaper wondering about my future.

Yup, Thinking of getting new place to express my creativity. Trying to be a 'Crazitive' person. That the new term of word that i learned 2 days ago after 1 and half hours lectured by the client. She has point there. U must be crazy in order to be creative. So there you go the combination of the two words.

Honestly, i'm having trouble getting new ideas. Dah kering ideas.. all i can do is just copy and inovate from there (which is true). I want to break free and be the best i could be.

Soo.. before the year ends, hope that i will get my IDEAS and CREATIVITY back..

fadli out...

My last ramadhan...

Andai kau tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir..
Tentu siangnya engkau sibuk berzikir
tentu engkau tak akan jemu melagukan syair rindu
mendayu..merayu...kepada-NYA Tuhan yang satu
andai kau tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir
tentu sholatmu kau kerjakan di awal waktu
sholat yang dikerjakan...sungguh khusyuk lagi tawadhu'
tubuh dan qalbu...bersatu memperhamba diri
menghadap Rabbul Jalil... menangisi kecurangan janji
"innasolati wanusuki wamahyaya wamamati lillahirabbil 'alamin"
[sesungguhnya solatku, ibadahku, hidupku, dan matiku...
kuserahkan hanya kepada Allah Tuhan seru sekalian alam]

andai kau tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir..
Tidak akan kau sia siakan walau sesaat yang berlalu
setiap masa tak akan dibiarkan begitu saja
di setiap kesempatan juga masa yang terluang
alunan Al-Quran bakal kau dendang...bakal kau syairkan

andai kau tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir..
Tentu malammu engkau sibukkan dengan
bertarawih...berqiamullail...bertahajjud...
mengadu...merintih...meminta belas kasih
"sesungguhnya aku tidak layak untuk ke syurga-MU
tapi...aku juga tidak sanggup untuk ke neraka-MU"

andai kau tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir..
Tentu dirimu tak akan melupakan mereka yang tersayang
mari kita meriahkan Ramadhan
kita buru...kita cari...suatu malam idaman
yang lebih baik dari seribu bulan

andai kau tahu ini Ramadhan terakhir..
Tentu engkau bakal menyediakan batin dan zahir
mempersiap diri...rohani dan jasmani
menanti-nanti jemputan Izrail
di kiri dan kanan ...lorong-lorong ridha Ar-Rahman

Duhai Ilahi....
Andai ini Ramadhan terakhir buat kami
jadikanlah ia Ramadhan paling berarti...paling berseri...
menerangi kegelapan hati kami
menyeru ke jalan menuju ridho serta kasih sayangMu Ya Ilahi
semoga bakal mewarnai kehidupan kami di sana nanti

Namun teman...
Tidak akan ada manusia yang bakal mengetahui
apakah Ramadhan ini merupakan yang terakhir kali bagi dirinya
yang mampu bagi seorang hamba itu hanyalah
berusaha...bersedia...meminta belas-NYA

andai benar ini Ramadhan terakhir buat kita
MAAFKAN SEMUA KESALAHAN YANG PERNAH AKU LAKUKAN

one week of ramadhan

Alhamdullilah dah masuk 1 week of ramadhan. My puasa still in good condition. Tak tinggal lagi. Actually tak terasa sangat lapar from puasa. Basically if u bersahur, at least have a glass of water should be enough. For me, buka puasa pun ala kadar (avoiding wastage). Actually tak terasa nak makan banyak pun mostly to drink.

Well everytime comes ramadhan, for me i always look foward to go to the pasar ramadhan near pasar taman tun. there's 2 reason why i want to got there.

1. The food there (getting my fav dish - the nasi kerabu, nasi dagang and mostly the one and only nasi lemak ayam kampung)

2. Meeting (actually bump into each other) most of my high school buddies and former office mates.

These days im unfortunate to go for the terawih prayers. Due to the working commitments, i do have to missed it. Break fast with my close buddies is a must for this ramadhan month. Looking foward to have it 1 of these days.

Oh... other than that a get together with the family to berbuka bersama - sama. Last week was at Wan Chik's house. This week, Ayah Jhor place. Hopefully they cook one of my favourite dish - ayam masak kuzi (a kelantanese dish). Huhuhu sedap hingga menjilat jari! (for those who knows it - u know what i mean rite!)

My favourite past time during this fasting month is making a limited edition of custom made kad raya. Tho those that close to me, they'll get the kad from me. For this year. But with this cyber world, most of them get their e-card.

Oh well.. got to run now, back to work. Selamat berpuasa and berbuka puasa to all. Peace be upon u.

Go Fadli its your Burfday! We gonna Party cuz its ur Burfday!



Im officially 25 years old today. Yup, believe it or not but its the fact. Growing old by the age and maturing on thinking and life overall.

i asked myself what have i achieved in myself all my life. Have i gained anything or learn anything? that's the questing still lingers on my mind. I celebrated my pre- birthday at my aunt's place at Taman Sri Ukays. Everyone was there, sorry almost everyone... my brother and my another uncle and aunt wasn't there. But hey, its ok. It was actually a dinner makan - makan that my family have every now and then. But occasionally just before the ramadhan.

Got few birthday SMSes and calls from close friends and family. It really sweet of them to remember my hari keputeraan. i dont expect anything, just love and care. As you say it 'Kasih sayang tak berbelah bagi' term of saying.

Well.. Happy 25th Burfday to me! kaching!

Fadli pergi ke TAWAU...



Well on saturday morning at about 4.30 am, me and imran headed to KLIA for our 7.30am flight to Tawau. Im sure some of u wondering y TAWAU? of all places.. ini kata KERJA TAK MASUK AKAL... accompanying my friend to attend a wedding reception.Then we have to rush back to KL the next day for our officemate's wedding. We arrived in tawau in about 10.30am. The bride's brother already tunggu kitaorang. Oh... me were accompanied by this couple (which the wife is a close friend of the bride and relative from the bridegroom's side) It took us about 45 mins from the airport to the small town. We arrived at the Hotel Heritage, unfortunately we can't check in till its 1pm, so we headed to this so callled 'pasar' nearby that sells the kain batik indonesia and others barang perhiasan and even pearls (which is so expensive!). Had murtabak jawa after having sum trouble finding and deciding what food to eat.

Finally back to the hotel and straight head to bed. TIDO la aper lagi. After a couple of hours of sleep, bangun and head to the bride's house. Ouh.. the bride is imran's bestfriend and goes by the name of Kak Su. We managed to hangout at her house only bout 15 mins before we had to leave (cuz the pengantin lelaki ader kot). So sampai di hotel. We headed to the pantai (its more likely like teluk) thanks to the info from the pengantin perempuan. So lepak sambil tengok pemandangan tepi pantai sambil menghirup angin sepoi - sepoi bahasa. Got back to the hotel and rest before getting ready for the ceremony.

The wedding starts at 7ish.. awal for a wedding reception. The ceremony went well and ends at 9.30pm. Giler awal... oh well took the photos with the pengantins and we head back to the hotel. Ingat nak bersiar - siar at this dead town but instead both of us end up zzzzz..

Its 6.45am, my alarm from my hp kept on buzzing. Tho i have told the front desk to wake us up by the hour of 7. Im headed to the shower while i was busy checking the channels from the TV. Our flights from AirAsia gonna departure at 10.30am so its better to get ready early. Before we check-out, makan breakfast, then Imran got a call from the pengantin perempuan saying that she's gonna pick us up. So end up lepaking in the room till 9.00am. Rupa - rupanya going back together with the rombongan lelaki, they also balik with same flight as us naik AirAsia.

We arrived a bit late for the check-in, managed got in the flight. Text messaged Nelli to be standby at KL Sentral. We decided to take ERL straight to the center of KL. Senang nak rush to Yamin's wedding at Dewan Perdana Felda. So to cut the story short, we arrived at KLIA at about almost to 1pm. Rushed to the ERL booth to get the tickets. The journey was took 28 mins. Arrived at the KL Sentral and Nelli waited for us in the car. Called Yamin to check wether the reception still ader orang tak.. and he said that only the close relatives that's still at the the dewan. We decided to drop by as to congratulates to him and his wife. Makan - makan, then hantar Imran balik rumah as i also gone straight home. So till my next tak MASUK AKAL adventure. chiow...

Song for a Friend

Got me thinking when i was listening to this song. The message behind the lyric. But then again its all about yourself and between ur friend. Hafiz got himself ipod Nano with engraving of his name! Not to say that i am jelaous of him, nak buat camner member beli kat Brisbane. Hopefully that im gonna get the Nano least end of the year. Thanks to the savings and the freelancing werk that im duing now. Hope more to come. Then boleh beli powerbook.. muhahhhhahahahahahah

Oh well.. i should be back to werk. there's annual report cover and layout to propose for tomorrow's presentation.


Song For A Friend - Jason Mraz

Well you’re magic he said but don’t let it all go to your head
Well I bet if you all had it all figured out then you’d never get out of bed
No doubt of all the things that I’ve read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping to be
I keep keeping it real cause it keeps getting easier indeed

He’s the reason that I’m laughing
Even if there’s no one else
He said you’ve got to love yourself

He said you shouldn’t mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble onto something better
Remember that it’s humble that you seek
And you’ve got all the skill you need; individuality
You’ve got something. Call it gumption.
Call it anything you want

Because when you play the fool now
You’re only fooling everyone else
You’re learning to love yourself.

There’s no price to pay when you give what you take.
That’s why it’s easy to thank you.

Let’s say take a break and get back to the old garage.
Life’s too short anyway but at least it’s better than average.
As long as you got me and I got you know we got a lot to go around
I’ll be your friend you’re other brother
Another love to calm and comfort you.

And I’ll keep reminding if it’s the only thing I ever do.
I will always love you.

Climb up over the top.
Survey the state of the soul.
You’ve got to find out for yourself whether or not you’re truly trying.
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it. Take control and inevitably wind up
Finding for yourself all the strengths you have inside still rising.

an evening at artseni, STARHILL




Last Sunday was a big day for my my god-brother Phillip Wong, as he successfully launched his own gallery, 'artseni' at Starhill Gallery. The launch was officiated by YB Dato' Seri Ong Ka Ting the Minister of Housing Development.

But before that, I was engaged with office occasion playing bowling games at Tropicana Clubhouse. It was the final game for this season. It was a good game tho, but i didnt win annything. Just merely participating.

Overall i was pleased to know that all his hardwork and passion in art paid of with huge turnout at the launching (for an art galllery launching). Wishing all the best to him and the gallery. To know more about artseni, log on to www.artseni.com.

Believe Your Ears



Call it astonishing. Unbelievable. Impossible, even. Then pick it up and hold it in your hand. Take in the brilliant color display. Run your thumb around the Click Wheel. Put on the earbuds and turn up your music. That’s when everything becomes clear: It’s an iPod.

It holds up to three days’ worth of music. It plays for up to 14 hours between battery charges.(1) It displays the color album art for the song you’re listening to right now. It carries your photos, podcasts and audiobooks. It syncs seamlessly with iTunes. It connects to a host of iPod accessories. Simply put, iPod nano is 100-percent iPod. And then some.
(text taken from www.apple.com. all rights reserved.)

Imagine i was thinking of getting myself with iPod 20G and first. Then comes iPod nano that comes in 2G and 4G. Boy, im gonna the 'nano' instead! With the new function as lock and its slimmer and smaller than the iPod. Turn on beb! Callled a good friend at apple malaysia about this new gadget and he says that the shipment of stocks are on their way. HUHUHUHUHU This kewl.. ohh.. by the way i'm planning to get the 2G ones that cost about RM1089 here in Malaysia. Hmm.. i wonder how much it is in Singapore. Oh well... watever it is ... i am so gonna get this stuff!

For more info on it just go to www.apple.com.. till then cheers!

Guess who's back?..

Hey hey hey... I had a good time yesterday night. After a long day in the office, had dinner with Imran and Adza Anis at Warung Aji Don in Plaza Damas. It was ok just makan and bual kosong. Mostly i sembang with her.. talking bout her dad and my dad (oh yeah, her and dad and my dad used to be in the Air Force and my fater was his superior officer).

It was pouring heavily on my back home. Got nuthing else to do... Oh.. the highlight of the story - El@ Alina is back in Kl for awhile. So i decided to SMS her. Apparently she's at RASTA with her friends. She asked me to join in lepaking. I managed to get a ride from my brother and his gf ride to the spot. It wasn't planned kinddda outing tho...

imagine the person that u always talked on the net and sumtimes on the phone. Jumpa semula again after awhile. To tell you the truth, she changed alot. Her face is glowing and she looked soo happy. Talked to her friends (which i didnt get their names right) merely chillin out drinking hot drinks catching things up. Nana and fly joined us (met them last year at the same place).

Biasala sembang kosong. Then changed of venue. To Mohsin lak fer another chillout session. Had another cup of Nescafe Tarik. Its almost past 1am already.. everyone seems to be tired and head home.

Its good to see el. Hope to hangout with u again before u balik Melbourne. fadli out!

Friday, August 26, 2005

NESCAFE.. help to start your day!

Got home at 3 am... take off my pants (dont worry im wearing a boxer) lay my body at on the evening bed at the living room. Half asleep and still have the cold burger with me, i decided to watch Jerry Mcguire movie while eating the burger and vanilla coke. I doze off and the time i realised that its already half past 4. Turn of the telly and the DVD player sambung tidur. I realised that its almost 8 am and im still on the bed. Said to myself 'let me have another 30 mins' zzzzz... suddenly my hp rang...look at the number...hurrmm...who is this?.. this is how the conversation goes:

me: aloo... (suara baru bangun tidur)
caller: Fad, where are you? Its Shah here..
me: Hurrmm... watsup? im at home
caller: Are coming to the office?
me: Yeah in a bit..
caller: They dont have the keys to the office..boss called anis (my accounts admin)
me: Okay okay.. im coming now..

The call made me fully awake already. Rushed to the shower. Get dressed and call the cab. I arrived at the office about 10.45am. Saw my client servicing at the indian restaurant on my up to the office. Looking blur and as u can semi stoned.. put my bag and straight head to the pantry. Gonna start the day with my nescafe and best part that im not aware that the Alkaline water dipenser is out of order... daymnn

Head down to the indian restaurant, joining my colleague and the supplier for breakfast. Had capati and nescafe tarik KAW. Hope that the nescafe will help me to stay awake.. but i need more.. im a COFFEE Addict. ahhh.........

anyway.. got work to be done.. later...

Special kindda sumthing...

Went out with good friend of mine, Danial at Hartamas Square for a drink. He look differently that the last time we go out. Slight built shape body (he went to gym to workout occasionally). We update each other on our life basically. Biasalah tanya aper latest dier werking on.

By looking at him, i am sure that he's happy with his life and his work. And he got himself a sonyericsson S700i (the one that im looking foward to get) Kejelesan jelas kelihatan... he offered me the phone for RM1500, the same amount when he purchased the phone.

We didnt talk much tho as we're enjoying our meal. Im having the kueh teow goreng (as usual one of my fav. food) and he's having the chicago hotdog (giler mahal RM9.00). I know that i still owes him a meal. But anyway maybe sometime in the future. At hartamas square they have recently installed WIFI service for FREE. Guess to attract more yuppies and geek (like me) to hangout there more often. We browse for football updates, checkin the friendster website and personal mail. And as usual i'll be busy chatting with sum friends. We we're there for that long coz i have a meeting with my father later.

Met my dad at the Ismail restaurant. He was upstairs at his office werking on sum tender paperwork. They need to submit the tender by tomorrow morning. So.. i did my writing and listening to the songs from itunes to keep me occupied. Updating my profiles for my portfolio. At least senang to bring along for job interview.

We headed to Uptown after half past 11,sitting at our normal spot at Salleh's place.
He had sizzling beef while im eating the nasi daging merah and sayur campur. This time around it was cooked by different guy, imagine makan sayur pedas and daging pedas and lil bit masin. Spoil betul! Then pergi cari DVD haram (ANDA DILARANG SESAMA SEKALI MENIRU TINGKAHLAKU INI) To my dissapointment, the DVD that i was looking for still not here...*sigh*Got home by the hour of 1am in the morning. Tired and sleepy so i went straight to bed zzz......

Manusia bodoh

This song has been in my ipod for quite sumtimes.

Manusia Bodoh
ADA Band

Dahulu terasa indah
Tak ingin lupakan
Bermesraan selalu jadi Satu kenangan manis

Tiada yang salah
Hanya aku manusia bodoh
Yang biarkan semua ini permainkanku
Berulang ulang ulang kali

Reff :
Mencoba bertahan sekuat hati
Layaknya karang yang dihempas sang ombak
Jalani hidup dalam buai belaka
Serahkan cinta tulus di dalam takdir

Tapi sampai kapankah kuharus
Menanggungnya kutukan cinta ini
Bersemayam dalam kalbu

Tak ayal tingkah lakumu
Buatku putus asa
Kadang akal sehat ini
Belum cukup membendungnya

Hanya kepedihan
Yang selalu datang menertawakanku
Engkau belahan jiwa
Tega menari indah di atas tangisanku

Bridge :
Semua kisah pasti ada akhir
Yang harus dilalui
Begitu juga akhir kisah ini
Yakinku indah

.......truly express how i feel right now.......

just one of em' days

When out with my close fren of mine for dinner. She came with her bf. They pick me up from my office. We headed to mamak joint at the edge of kuala lumpur.

Biasala dah lama tak jumpa and hangout sesama. Nak melepaskan kerinduan yang lama terpendam (what a word fadli!). Well another fren of ours joined for a drink. Then the topic about me arise, as usual me explaining whats been bugging my life. About work, family and love life (this meeting was focusing on me). 3 Things that almost made me think a lot. Over and over again. Yes, i am a thinker. I think a lot or maybe to much..

1st - i am stress out with work. Imagine trying your best to impress the boss and being supportive top the other colleagues. Am i not good enough to get what the boss wants and harapkan. Kering Ideas for awhile. Lost my so called 'Mojo'. But now im working it to get back on track. Maybe i need a holiday for awhile...

2nd - family; trying to balance relationship between my mom and my dad. At the moment im having a silent treatment from my mom even with siblings (my brother and sister) we're kinda stranger that stays in one roof. Maybe i hardly spending time with them or even try to talk to them. Me and my EGO. Working on it to mend the broken link. As my father, he needs someone to share his thoughts and listen to his problem or layan his nagging... called him just now and apologized for not calling him for awhile (takut dier merajuk). Gonna meet him up one of these days.

3rd - My love life. I am having my time off for awhile... thinking bout my relationship with gf. There a lot of things that been lingering to my mind. Yeah.. after 6 months of relationship. We've gone thru a lot together for the past that period. The ups and down etc etc. A fren told me even in relationship needs the break for awhile. Apart from each other just to look back at the relationship and see ourselves. I am an easy going type of person. I have experience a bad relationship that made my heart jadi keras and most of all KERING. I was hoping this relationship could made me have a PERASAAN. Yes i still sayang my gf. Siapa tak nak gf ambik dari rumah go for breakfast and then hantar to office and picking me up after work. Im sure semua guys out there looking for that type of gf yang boleh berkorban for u. I cant drive at the moment due to my sickness. But i have to make decision that might hurt us both especially her. She was pouring when i told her i need a time off apart from her. For me, this time off will help me to THINK about relationship and how to improve this relationship that i have now. For how long? time will tell......

Prologue of a blog

Yeah.. its been awhile since i write a blog... it seems that i have lost the interest or am i just to busy with work that i have the time to blog or brag about anything that comes in and out from my life.

Well.. i had a good weekend. Spend most of the time in the office with my colleagues. We do our work and later on hit the game of Ghost Recon (a combat game) for few hours. But the thing is i was in the office completing my F.A artist's work. Tho the work is not that hard, just printing and do the final mockup of annual report for the client. But how you asking a favour to do the work. Directing me on what to do, just because he's the senior there, that doesn't mean that i have follow his order.. by the way i am the so called 'junior art director'... but cut the nagging part .. got it done with the help of my designer.

A part from that on saturday evening, my former client asking for my help to do some illustration for her book. Met the her and the publisher at this bar near my office. Had a few chat to get the quotation for the illustration. She's on tight budget. So.. for a friend sake.. i lowered down the price. Then went back to the office and finalized the remaining work. David, my insurance agent came to the office to have a drink. We a long chat about life and work, merely updating ourselves. He was asking a favour to get new "potential" clients. So i gave him few numbers to keep him busy.

On sunday, me and another art director stop to the office, to do some work and ends with playing the multiplayer game. We've played most of the mission throughout the day. Then later at night , my account servicing came to the office to get the mockup and letter to the client. We end up having supper at the place in damansara heights. Eating while watching the malay movie "Sarjan Hassan" on the telly. There's few parts that we refer to the game we played at the office...

So.. that's all few now.. guess that i'll start to write more soon..
