The Pursuit of Happyness

No, am not going to talk about the movie. Sekadar nak memuntahkan perasaan saya tentang hal-hal sekeliling. Mari kita menyentuh topik 'Happy'.

Menurut Wikipedia,

Happiness is a feeling of pleasure and satisfaction. Happiness is the opposite to sadness. When someone feels good, proud, relieved or satisfied about something, that person may be described as "happy". Feeling happy may help people to relax and to smile.

Happiness is usually thought of as the opposite of sadness, but it is possible to feel both at once [needs proving], often about different things.

Many philosophers [who?] have said that people in this world go back and forth between times of happiness and sadness, but there is nobody who is always happy or always sad.


Right.

Terus setiap orang mempunyai hal-hal yang membuat dirinya happy, tak semestinya apa yang membuat saya happy, akan membuat awak happy, kan? Misalnya kalau saya jatuh tangga lepas tu terjelepuk malu dan sakit mastilah saya sedih tapi awak mungkin akan happy teramat sangat sampai ketawa terbahak-bahak 5 keturunan, mungkin.

Tapi kenapa, kadang orang selalu merasa, "if I am happy because I have this this this, therefore you must have this this this in order to be happy too. Kalau tak ada, memang loser gila therefore silakan menangis air mata darah sampai nak mampus." Kenapa macam tu?

Cuba tengok pada orang yang serba kekurangan. They don't have much, but they don't lack of reasons to smile. Dan mereka tak kurang kerendahan hati. So tak perlulah merasa,diri kamu tu hebat sebab kamu cukup makan pakai ada suami anak-anak langsung sempurna hidup kamu lalu berhak menilai orang lain tak layak bahagia.

Janganlah fikir, sebab saya bujang dan kerja kilang sahaja dan boyfriend saya jauh tak boleh nak manja-manja maka saya kurang serba serbi dari kamu. Saya bahagia dengan apa yang saya ada, which is more than what I can say about you.

Plis deh.

Good News From Indonesia


Hey friends,

I am now helping out a friend by writing articles for Good News From Indonesia, and I am pretty excited about that! Haha, okay...I admit, I've only written a couple articles for them, but being the only Malaysian writing in, and the only female, has its perks.

As the only Malaysian, it helps people see that not all Malaysians are 'tuan rumah kejam belasah pembantu rumah tanpa hati perut'. Altho, to those Malaysians who do so, shame on you!

As the only female, well...it's official,
"Farina is the prettiest in GNFI"


Hahahahhahaa.

So read, and learn about all the wonderful things about our neighbouring country. Maybe then you'll give our 'big brother' the respect they deserve.

About GNFI

Good News From Indonesia is your independent and trusted premier source of all kinds of good news from Indonesia. Our vision is clearly defined within good news, with no intervention from political, religious, or any private interest that might harm our independence.

Good News From Indonesia is committed to sharing only good news because we appreciate positiveness and optimism; and especially from Indonesia because we believe our country has a lot of good things to offer. And it is also our intent to show the world of the brighter side of Indonesia so that they can see and understand us in the best possible way.

So, if you are positive and optimistic, you’re on the right track. And if you’re on the flip side, here is Good News From Indonesia to make your day!


p/s: Thanks Bro Arry, for asking me to join board of writers. It's truly an honor.

I wanna...


I wanna be the girl he's scared to lose, the one he can't live without.

I wanna be the one where he cant walk away from, the one who can't fall asleep without her voice being the last one he hears.

"Kalau Jarak itu racun, Cinta adalah penawarnya.."


Been getting a few friendly messages to inquire about how I was doing these days. With the FB off and the depressive notes on the blog, I don't blame them for worrying.

To whom it may concern because of your concern,

Thanks, good people.

But seriously, there are rational reasons to it. The FB has got to go, because it has stopped serving its purpose to me, plus the boss has been bugging me about being online almost all the time. Same reason why you don't see me on YM as much too these days. All the icons and buzz and pictures and segala mak nenek adalah terlalu menjolok mata.

As for the depression mode, well what can I say...

Percintaan Jarak Jauh itu sakit, kawan.

And before you might even go,
"alahhh itu pun nak kecoh bla bla bla, sabar je lah sikit bla bla bla, usahalah sikit bla bla bla, cinta dapat menaklukkan dunia bla bla bla"

kindly stop just right there. We, my boyfriend and I, are really doing the best we can to make this work, with Allah as our witness, and I do not find my self being obligated to explain to anyone, about the procedures, sacrifices and hardships that we have to undergo for this relationship.

Mohon doanya teman-teman, mudah-mudahan Allah tunjukkan jalan, aminnn.

And to those who might say,
"So why hold on if it's so painful?"

Well, haven't you heard?

Cinta memang dapat menaklukkan dunia.


"bukan matahari bila tak menyinari,
bukan kuntum bunga bila tak mewangi,
dan bukanlah cinta bila tidak sepenuh hati..."

PATIENCE


Shed a tear 'cause I'm missing you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt you're in my heart now
Said woman take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Said sugar make it slow
And we'll come together fine
All we need is just a little patience
Patience...
Ooh, oh, yeah

Sit here on the stairs
'Cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now, I'll wait dear
Sometimes, I get so tense
But I can't speed up the time
But you know, love, there's one more thing to consider
Said woman take it slow
Things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Said sugar take the time
'Cause the lights are shining bright
You and I've got what it takes to make it
We won't fake it, Oh never break it
'Cause I can't take it

...little patience, mm yeah, ooh yeah,
Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah
Some more patience, yeah
I've been walking these streets at night
Just trying to get it right
It's hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like being stuck in a crowd
And the streets don't change but maybe the name
I ain't got time for the game
'Cause I need you
Yeah, yeah well I need you
Oh, I need you
Whoa, I need you
Just a little patience is all we need
Ooh, this time...


I must admit, tho...my patience is running thin these days. :-(

Jalan


Jika memang tiada harapan...

Jika memang tak akan bersanding...

Tunjukkan jalan keluar dari hatimu.


The saddest love is to love someone, to know that they still want you, but the circumstances don't let you have them.

LIFE

Ok. I am impressed.

My lil brother now has a blog.

Aptly named 'Life', he wrote about well, his life of course, but also his take on pollution, economy and...yikes! Relationships!!!

Here's a snippet from his blog,

Ppl said they 'cannot' move on. Actually, its because you dont want to do so. You want to get back together with your partner. You wish bad things wouldnt happen. You think about your partner all the time. You think you would be happy with him/her and not with anyone else. You wish to hug and never let go.

Well, bad news people. You have to let go, and you know it. You knew those things i wrote up there wouldnt happen like it used to be. Learn. You've made a mistake, you shouldnt repeat that ever. You have your whole life to enjoy, make mistakes, learn from your mistakes, dont let these mistakes make you to make more mistakes.


Reading something like this written by my little...okay, not so little 19 yers old brother feels rather surreal.

And I was damn proud to read this,
Food. Minum petang sepatutnya boleh masukkan kuih tu dlm plastic bag dan bukan polisterine. Rosak weyh dunia. Dah laa lepas makan, boleh pulak nampak makcik2 tu bakar polisterine. Agak2 laa. Mati anak org nnt.


Way to go! Say NO to non-biodegradable polistrine!

Go ahead, check out his blog

oh, and be a follower please, he'd like that. :-D

Jom, cakap?

Jomcakap kembali bercakap.

Sorry for the hiatus.

Have finally managed to straigthen up my emotions, stabilize my feelings, maka dah boleh buat entry yang saya tak akan regret. Saya tak suka menulis bila emosi terganggu sangat, kalau terganggu sikit-sikit takpe. Hehe.

Will update soon enough, especially about the lipbalm! (everyone's been asking me bout that, sorry ladies!)

Thanks to those who asked, thanks who those who didn't!

Farina's back, allright! (Insert aksi Nick Carter disini)
