Once again the worst of me got rid of the best of me. I wonder what’s the problem, but sometimes I just feel so demotivated. Unable to perform and deliver to that what is expected of me (deva
First and foremost, I’m truly sorry that I have been missing for about a week. Not that I have many readers (I wish!) but then the blog was created for a reason. And with me, there are not many reasons because I like to see the pros and cons on doing something. Seriously if you really think about it, many actions or decisions that us, homo-sapiens, take will carry more cons than pros. Hence I don’t really like to do much stuff. (see, it’s actually just justification from yours truly on why he is lazy!)…
Returning to the main concern, I created this blog to help me commit. Maintaining a blog requires commitment as it is with many other ‘stuff’ we do such as relationships. Frankly speaking, me and commitment in a relationship, never been a good thing at all. Justifiably why none of my relationships seem to work, you get me? Seems clear that I shall not achieve ‘happy ever after’.
If you have fear of heights, you conquer you fear by challenging yourself to go higher literally speaking. So since I have fear of commitment, shall first try maintaining a blog. This taking into consideration that real relationship takes a lot of time and many unaccounted variables that seems to change with the nature and nurture of the girl. So a blog seems a very natural choice indeed.
Putting that aside, a lot of stuff has been going on since I last posted on that harvest festival thingy. Firstly, after writing that post we went to the beach and then headed straight to my fellow Iban, Zim’s house for Gawai session. And like all true Dayak (there were only 3 Dayak amongst us, the rest was a mix of Indians, Malay etc) we drank a lot. Count on the Indians to finish everything eh?
Returning to the story, apparently a lot is not enough so we decided to go drink more at some local coffee shop. Believe me when I say the next day was disastrous, I woke up and puked my guts out. Tried to eat or drink but the stomach was a total mess, food kept coming out. My puke was green, most probably stomach juice. Making the matter worse, it was coming out from both ends! I freaked out because the symptoms was similar to alcohol poisoning. All I could think of was dying lol. But after 2 days I was fine. Thank God. Never will I drink like that again! (but then isn’t that what we all say?)
Exams has begun and everyone is busy studying. Everything should be fine shouldn’t it? Not for me tho. Let’s hope it’s all for the best!
P/s I’m just in love with demotivational posters (explains the random title of this post). They make life funny. Till next time. Ciao!
Its Tuesday already and the week has begun to look bleak. Finals next week in t-minus 5 days and yet my preparation remains scarce. Today is my off day, don’t blame me but it’s Gawai time again! For those ill-informed netizens, Gawai is The harvest festival celebrated by the Dayaks of Borneo. Anything more than that, Google it!
Usually during harvest festival I would be on my way back to my dear old longhouse for celebrations. There would be great food like Roasted Pork, Curry Pork, Pork in Soy Sauce basically anything with pork in it. Just thinking bout em makes me mouth water you know. Oh yeah not to forget those awesome side dishes ( I call them side dishes because Pork is so awesome that you can just eat it on it’s own! ), Chicken cooked in Bamboo or as we know it ‘Ayam Pansuh’ and other chicken dishes as well. My village is deep in the jungle bout 4 hours drive from Miri and another 4 hours by long boat. Another plus point is that there’s a heck lot of booze! The famous Iban rice wine, Tuak, and all other varieties of liquor and beers definitely. All this talk about food is making me hungry and I’m too lazy to cook. I wish I have one of these Suddenly food!
Reminiscing of the past, I recall fond memories of Gawai. The usually empty long house would be flocked by people returning from all over. Getting drunk at 12 in the afternoon, drinking all day till the next. You will see people sleeping / pass out in the Ruai ( long house combine sitting room? ) after days of drinking. They drink till they die, literally speaking. Once a friend of my dad’s friend didn’t wake up the next day. Tragic but then all the more cause of drinking ain’t it?
Okay enough of the tragic part of Gawai, let’s move on to the much happier ones shall we?
With Gawai, comes the return of long lost family and friends. You know, those that you don’t see unless there is a Wedding, Celebration or Death! And the girlssss!
okay maybe not that kinda girls but the the hot native style chicks. I would not reveal too much info on that because somehow most of us there are related! So too bad then.
Back to the real world, I have not gone back for Gawai in about 3-4 years already. Blame it all on the education namesake. Either Gawai holidays too short ( 1 or 2 days of public holiday, so much for 1Malaysia ) or the week Gawai falls is the study week aka now. I miss it all but then student life has it’s perks too. Now that’s for you to figure out! ~.^
In other un-related issues,

Hola mi amigos! (
been wanting to learn Spanish but never really did 😦 )
I have so many things to write about that I don’t know where to start! Had a good weekend, a good break from studying though I never had a good break from not studying!
A writer’s block is one thing but too many things to write and not knowing where to start is equally unproductive don’t you think? Lest the whole thing become such a jumble and no one knows what crap I’m writing. Defeats the purpose eh?
So let’s just start with the movie. In this part of the world, there’s just ONE cinema and when that cinema decided to close down for a month plus, all I can get is pirated dvd’s. And that shit is not satisfying at all unless you have your own set of home theatre system and a matching big ass tv set! Luckily another cinema was opened soon after, I was grateful it decided to open just after a month plus the other one closed down because rumors were going around that a new cinema is not due to open till the end of the year. Imagine that! I would have to go all the way to Brunei and watch overpriced movie and the other option is to drive down to Bintulu where the cinema is like those old dark seedy places that you bring girls and hopefully get lucky instead of actually watching a movie!
The show was at 12 midnight, all other time slots were fully booked. Blame the Mirians for their ultimate Sakai-ness when something new open up. Like seriously it was hard to get seats the first week after it opened. And because we reached around 9-ish, we had nothing to do so we decided to get drinks at a local whats-it’s-name bar. The place was actually quite decent, had an almost old-school bar-ish kinda feel to it. The walls were creatively decorated with placards from all over the world, pictures, antiques etc.. Here see!
The wall was interesting and we actually spent quite some time trying to read them! Talk about proper time wasting rite?
Initially we only wanted to time-waste and maybe just drink one can of beer. But one can turned to a half crate and then another half. I was already feeling tipsy by the time we got to the theatre. Oh yeah back to the movie thingy, Pirates of the Caribbean 4 : On Stranger Tides. Been itching to see this since the trailer was released but the first two was better I think. This time theres no more Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley but more on Jack Sparrow, Capt. I won’t give any spoilers, don’t worry but then I fell asleep half way through the movie. Wasn’t the movie’s fault but mostly due to me being inebriated! Pirated copy again will do I suppose. 🙂 I supported the industry by going once that should be enough ain’t it?
My post is getting long and windy and I think this is where I should stop. So how was your weekend? Leave me a link in the comment and read all about it. Till later! And yeah have a Carlsberg while you are at it.
DK signing off from the weekend. Wait it’s Monday already? Time is in a hurry I see, sigh*
Have you ever had the feeling that whatever you did or have been doing, was all just futile efforts?
I was up since forever last night, catching just two hours of shut eye, preparing for my practical exam. When it was time I was prepared, I knew I can’t f up this time. I was CONFIDENT!
And then I entered the practical lab, look at the samples and poof! I was BLANK!
Didn’t know what to write and what to observe. A big LOL back at me. I knew I should have spent more time in the freaking lab looking at those stones. ( I’m studying to be a geologist btw )
But then again don’t they always say that failure is a path to success? Personally I think that’s just bullcrap! Ignore the profuse swearing, you will get to see that mostly during my exam periods…
Well then, one more week to go and then it’s the finals. Where once again the libraries and study areas will be filled with desperate students trying to cram in last minute work in preparation for finals.. And where will I be? The answer is obvious… but then again the world has not really altered a single bit.
As a toast to studies, why not we party? ;D
Writing from the ends of the world, Borneo(
I believe this where the world would end if it was still square ), it got me thinking about the advancement of technology and how far us humans have come since the oldé stone age. Has time changed our purpose of life or is it similar to the olden ages?
We are connected from every nook and corner of the earth, and physically expressing yourself is soon a thing of the past. Everything now is ‘online’, this justifying our reliance on technology each very day. Admittance from a social networking addict? Thats akin to an Atheist accepting the fact there’s God. For that, I deserve some credit rite?
So kneel! The King is back!
