Blogging again

Well, seriously I don't know what to blog for. Too much thing want to say but can't speech. Most of my blogger kaki stop blogging since few months ago. We used to have fun time blogging about our life, some stupid idea, criticize on company and works, ... now we all don't have the courage to do that. We don't know what happen if some people read our blog and showed it to someone who we had criticized.

A blog can be subjective and it can be objective. I personally is very subjective in blogging cause that is what I felt. Anyhow, one very importance thing in blogging is that you are the owner of the blog and it mean you have to responsible for what you had wrote. This situation become difficult when you wrote too much related to other people although their name not appear in the blog. So, invited type of blog is used to prevent unwelcome person. Sooner or later, it move to friendster or facebook kind of web application to share your feeling and the stress.

Most of the middle range white-collar worker facing lot of working pressures. Firstly they are educated, they believe in freedom and fairness. They are sandwiched between lower level worker and their boss. There are few ways to release these pressures. One of the way is drink and smoke alone or with their friend. I personally don't like this method.

The other way is say it or write it down and let their friends, family and colleagues share the burden, pressure, happiness, sadness, everything and at the same time share theirs problems and point of view also. Sharing is caring. I personally prefer this method, first of all, it reduce our stress and others; secondly, it wouldn't cause any bad effect like drinking and smoking which is not good for health.

From open blog, to invited blog and to social web application, we only need a place to healthily release our feeling, a personal place to write and talk. Somehow, this is not possible for some people. All their dissatisfaction about company, the management, the colleague which they blogged or wrote is used by so call "friend" to show it to the criticized person, to the management they have complaint. One by one, blog being closed, web application being canceled to make us speechless.

If you ask me what is different between friend and colleague, I will define friend as a person that you can talk, and colleague is a person who work (maybe not) with you. A friend share your problem, a colleague use your problem.

I don't know I will banned or warned or not if some one from my company read my blog. I just hope that these people return a piece of personal virtual space for me to share with my friends and family. I sincerely thank you for not making this an issue.

Don't take Gulfair if you want live longer

I got a ticket going back to Bahrain from Abu Dhabi on 1.15Pm today. Because don't want waste the driver time, I made decision to follow my colleagues, Mr. Huan and Wong, go to airport in the early morning 6AM.

So I went to the counter ask them whether I can change my flight to early flight or not and the counter say their system down and need to wait until the early flight open then only can check.

So I wait until the counter open and surprisingly, the 1.15PM flight canceled and they never inform me. So I was thinking I am quite lucky today. So I happily waiting for the flight.

After boarding, I'm so tired so I just take a nap. And after a while, I heard that the plane going to land. Look at my watch it is 15 minutes early than the scheduled landing time. Looking out the window I saw ADAC, first I was thinking maybe Abu Dhabi airport put advertisement at Bahrain airport. But sometime not right, I was flying back to Abu Dhabi again, what the f!

The captain just say due to safety reason he have to land. At the terminal, the staff never let you know what to do, what is the situation, all they do is ask you to go to lounge to take lunch and come back and wait. And I have been tortured for the whole day to get another flight to Bahrain at 6PM.

I don't know what to say except those f words that I remember.

If you want to go Bahrain or Europe, just use Ethihad or Emirate, their flight is newer and more safe to use. If I can vote, then the worst airline on earth I will choose the Gulfair. Just pissed with their service. Worst airline I ever used.

Thanks God it's Thursday!

I seldom so excited for the weekend, but I think I started to love weekend.

Seeing those idiots and talk to those idiots really make me feel sick. I don't understand how their mind is working, totally unreasonable. I'm not sure it is because they suck in too much of duct that cause their brain malfunction.

Anyway, thanks God to let me survive until Thursday. I will appreciate every second I have in this weekend.

ハルフウェイ Halfway



Directed by Eriko Kitagawa with Shunji Iwai and Takeshi Kobayashi, a star grade combination, this is a movie to be waited.

Maybe you don’t know who is Eriko Kitagawa, but you definitely know these dramas Aishiteru to Itte Kure, Long Vacation, and Beautiful Life. She is a very talented director in producing romance drama.

My favorite director, writer, editor, producer and composer (it take some time to introduce) Shunji Iwai, since his last movie, rainbow song, I have been waiting for his new release. I still love his Love letter, Hana and Alice, and April story.

Halfway official website.

I hope Malaysia cinema will show this movie.

Summer is coming

I can feel the summer is on his way. The weather is so hot and humid, make me feel very uncomfortable. The electricity also increase :)

I can't say I love summer cause everyday is summer. The only different is a slightly windy summer and stuffy hot summer.

The heat remind me a nice drama, summer snow. I love Ryoko Hirosue. She is a very talented artist, but too bad she screwed up her career for her unhappy marriage. What a waste.



and her new drama, "愛なんていらねえよ、夏" Ai nan tei ra ne e yo, natsu (I don't need love during this summer)
