My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.

My 2005

2005 has come and passed us. Looking back, 2005 was quite an interesting year and a memorable one, at that.
Around the world, 2005 was probably the year Mother Nature tested us. But in those times of need, I was touched to see the true human being coming out to help fellow mankind. It was a year of disaster, yet from the disaster, in some ways we came together and felt for those who were less fortunate. Maybe it wasn't enough but every hand that gives is truly a great way to start reminding ourselves that we are afterall, just human.
In my own little cocunut-shell world, it was the year I switched jobs - again. But this time, after a good thought and some pening kepala sessions, maybe I've settled on what I'll be doing for the next, at least 10-20 years. And that gives me piece of mind, knowing there is a 'road map' for where I'm headed in my life. Alhamdulillah.
2005 was also the year of attending great shows and events, notably the Force of Nature concert in March and my first-ever show at the Actor's Studio with Life Sdn. Bhd. 3. Other notables was watching Yasmin Ahmad's love masterpiece, Sepet (and falling in love with Sharifah Amani on the way) and the Malaysian-Singapore joint effort in Separation 40. Here's looking forward to another great year in the Malaysian entertainment scene in 2006. Maybe I got off to a good start with last night's rendezvous with Peter Pan at Stadium Merdeka. Rain, mud and Mat-Mat Indon all. Enggak perlu Woodstock, dong!
It was the case of chickens coming home to roost for me in 2005 with my moving back into my parents' home in Seremban. After more than a decade of running around aimlessly, I packed my stuff in my rented house in PJ and head back home. No more weekend lunchtime at Zainul's for me :(
On a sad note, arwah Pak Badik left us this year while performing his umrah in Mekkah. And with Mak Lang still in coma from last week, it has been tough times for the family.
But in times of darkness, a beacon came in the form of EE getting engaged and later tied the knot within the year 2005. She has now moved to the North to be with her hubby and I'm proud and happy to have been there with her through this important period in her life. When's my turn, you ask? How dare you! :P
I guess that pretty much sums up 2005 for me personally. It was the year I reached the significant mark of 25 and I look forward to the new year as I have approached life itself: Full of optimism and hope for a better tomorrow.
