Choices and chances

When we meet the right person to love
when we're
at the right place at the right time.
That's
CHANCE.

When you meet someone you're attracted to,
that's
not a choice.
That's CHANCE.


Being caught up in a moment
(and there's a lot of
couples who get together because of this)
is not a
choice.
That's also a CHANCE.


The difference is what happens afterward.
When
will you take that infatuation, that crush,
that
mind-blowing attraction to the next level?
That's
when all sanity goes back, you sit down
and
contemplate whether you want to make this
into a
concrete relationship or just a fling.

If you decide to love a person, even with his
faults, that's not a chance. That's CHOICE.

When you choose to be with a person, no matter
what, that's CHOICE.

Even if you know there are many people out there
who are more attractive, smarter, and richer than
your mate, and yet, you decide to love your mate
just the same, that's CHOICE.

Infatuation, crushes,
attraction comes to us by
CHANCE.
But true love that lasts is truly
a
CHOICE. A choice that we make.

Regarding soulmates, there's a beautiful movie
quote that I believe is so true about this : "Fate
brings you together, but it's still up to you to
make it happen."

I do believe that soulmates do exist. That there
is truly someone made for you. But it's still up
to you to make the choice if you're going to do
something about it or not.

WE MAY MEET OUR SOULMATES BY
CHANCE, BUT... LOVING AND STAYING
WITH
OUR SOULMATES IS STILL A CHOICE
WE HAVE TO MAKE

SPIDERMAN's new suit...


I read comics. Almost all kinda of comics international and local. I started collect during my early teen when im still in secondary school. From MARVEL to IMAGE comics and VALIANT comics label. Like spiderman,superman,spawn,savage dragon and the crow (that's after i watch the crow movie) to name few.. But over the years im more to tradepaper bags or graphic novel. Then i stopped due to insuffficent of sum and crap stories.

Recently i read in the newspaper article on SPIDERMAN's new suit. I was like "what the hell! mamat nie dah tukar baju lagi?" Terkejut la sekejap. Anyway.. as some of you will know that spiderman dah berapa kali tukar baju. From the original red and blue to a alien suit (at the end si venom dapat). The scarlett nyer suit and now from Tony Strak design for si peter parker. Giler ganas.. almost sama with IRONMAN's suit. The colour pun tukar to red and gold colour. Seriously got my intention to grab that issue AMAZING SPIDERMAN #529 from the local comic shop (hope ader stock lagi). That will be my prized collection. Mana tau in few years time harga naik dlm ebay. Boleh jual.. (as if i want to sell). Just want to know how much that comic will value on the ebay.
Oh well cakap banyak pun tak guna. Just buy that issue jer la... then we'll see how the story goes behind the new suit.

im fadli. i read comic in the toilet.

My True colour - is it me?

You're blue — the most soothing shade of the spectrum. The color of a clear summer sky or a deep, reflective ocean, blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty. Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending some time on your own, you'd rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances. Luckily, making close friends isn't that hard, since people are naturally attracted to you — they're soothed by your calming presence. Cool and collected, you rarely overreact. Instead, you think things through before coming to a decision. That level-headed, thoughtful approach to life is patently blue — and patently you!

im tired...

Well its already pass 2 days since i moved out to new house in Taman Tun. Boxes still stacking around the house. To make it worse same goes to my room. Macam tongkang pecah or other words tempat kucing beranak. My gawd, i haf to rearrange my room cum studio again. damn penat... to drill the walls fro my shelves (actually to display my toys). Managed to run to ikea for a quick shopping for the room.

Hmm.. empty out few the boxes and left me for 2 more boxes. Mainly is the books and the magazines that i have bought fer the pass 3 years. Mostly reference book magazines on advertising and graphics. Boleh buat library tuu.. Anyway the saddest part was letting go most of my Ujang magazines that i have collected since the 1st issue. Banyak siut.. mana nak muat dalam bilik. And i told my mom to sell to the surat khabar lama guy. Sob Sob.. and i have stopped buying the local comic magazine. Baca kat kedai jer la.. simpan duit beli bende lain. New gadgets maybe? hmm... i got to get a new printer.

RM900 for a rented singe-storey house in Taman Tun is already consider cheap. Ka-ching! Consider that the Landlord was kind enough to give that kinda off amount. Dah la dekat ngan Taman Rekreasi Bukit Kiara and the masjid. at least senang sikit nak gio ber jogging/ lepak kat taman dan juga semayang jumaat and raya. Takde la jauh menapak la..

Not many people knows (even the taman tun peeps) that i'm moving out except for my office ppl. Like it seems that words been spreading in the office. Biarla.. janji tak kacau aku sudah.. and yesterday the phone line was installed at the house. The former tenant punyalah pandai cabut the main wire. Habih they have to install the new wire. Mom called ask me to rush home to pay the technician. Mati2 ingat that they gonna come on the 15th as the customer service told me that they gonna call first and install the line. At least that now the phone line ader kat tempat baru. Streamyx is next. Eh.. masuk astro dulu ker? ahh.. nvm pikir bende to lain masa.

Okla.. as im writing now, it passed already to 4 am. Better get sum shut eyes. zzzzz..

my name is fadli. im off to bed.

a trip to galleri izu...


I went to an art exhibition at Galleri Izu near KLCC. It was my first visit to that gallery (thanks to yana and kudut). Its called 7 March. 7 Malay artists and chinese collaborate together for the exhibition. Well.. overall the artwork was outstanding and few of them already been sold. Hangout there for awhile, watching the artist and their respective artwork. Me and yana sat down enjoying the light refreshments and enjoying the 'view' in the gallery.

Met muid latif (well known person in the art society and the person behind digital malaya). A short introduction from yana and we shook hand.

Muid : I didnt catch your name, Muid (sambil menghulurkan tangan dan memberikan namecard)
Me : Fadli. U added me in myspace last time.
(He looked puzzle. But act normal la..)

Oh well.. maybe he didnt remember me or tak cam my face. Well thats not important, least that i can tell others that i have met him personally. Kudut was outside smoking. We head to CITIBANK, the citi that never sleeps to pay my credit card bills. Dinner at Rasta, i transferred the TJ art gallery pics from yana's portable hardisk.Exchanged some audio flies from my ibook to her handphone using bluetooth. Layan Natasha series on the big screen.

I arrived at home and saw my cousin's car parked outside. Ohh.. she's picking up her stuffs. My brother came to the house with his friend. Asking my mom if ader barang yang nak di bawa ke the new house. I took the chance to send all my stuffs (well most of it) headed to the new house in Openg. Put all of my stuffs in my room and i assembled my table. with the help of my brother (thanks, man). Thinking of re-arrange the room when i finally settle there. The studio will resume back to work within next week. I've got few jobs in hand. Updating my profiles and design for my portfolio book.

Huwarrgghhh... Well its already 1.25 am in the morning. Better get sum rest before go to work.

My name is fadli. Im a blogger.

Saya nak minum NESCAFE secawan...

I had a sort of lunch date with a good fren of mine - Yee Pei the other day. She's actually my ex-supplier turn to be friend. Dine at local mamak spot in Desa Sri Hartamas. Pekena indo mee goreng double with telur mata. layan....

We had a good chat. Merely updating each other. since she is werking with invest / business line. I ask her on how to actually save money to buy a house. Ohh.. yeah.. i do plan buy a property. Better compare to get a car (which is still planning to get once my financial mengizinkan) but then again since the petrol price hike 30 sen more, i'll be riding the public transport till god knows when. But since my budget planning doesn't allow for me to get a house yet. maybe in another 2-3 years. Then ok la..

I will be moving back to Taman Tun ( where i grew up) as the new house is convenience for my mom to travel to the market and bank plus other things.. but i have mix feeling to this agenda. It's gonna be a bit far to got to my 'second home' 1utama. To hangout driniking kopi mahal and surf the free wi-fi. But this new place is near to greenary (dekat pusat rekreasi kiara) and mesjid. Oh well.. better than nothing. i could go to the pasar malam again on every sunday and jog every now and then at the park (sambilan boleh mencuci mata). kwa kwa kwa kwa...

Tetiba org dari jauh (melbourne) send me an sms early morning.. anis namanya. Said that she suddenly awake tengok member nyer alina tiada di sininya. So saja nak bersms.

Nama saya Fadli Izmir. Saya nak minum kopi.
