I may not be someone who writes you long poems
And give you so many roses
I may not be the most romantic person in this world
But for me you mean everything,
So many girls so many days
I passed by, but one glance from you
Girl, make me for my world…

Dedicated to ammu kutty..

Ithe thodarum..

Sigh.. Like stupid.,, At times, that’s the only line that comes out from my mind. Frankly speaking, that’s the only line. Remember the schooling days, where the headmaster or teacher will walk around to check if you are doing your work.

Aiyooo like small kids lar. “ Hey you do your work.” Or even “ Did you do your work?” Macam budak budak ! Even worse “ I tell I will give you letter if I catch you surfing. I will walk around to see you what you are doing because I got nothing to do.”

I’m not a small kid. When I want to do something more useful and essential for myself that’s where all the reasons in this world will come out. No, you cannot do this! No you cannot do that. Okay! I’m fed up and I want to put an end to this. That’s where “ No you cant, because they wont let you walk. WHAT?! For god’s sake can you all like be specific. You are frustrated SO AM I bohzoh!

Frustrations as such only happens when you repetitively do something every single day. It’s the moment for you decide to grow or just to sit back and so-called relax and see what’s going to happen in future. Well hell no, I aint gonna do that. There is something in this world that I always wanted to do

But you know if I were to do that, things can go shitty. Yeah man, I mean it, things can go shitty. This and that have actually led me to be not bothered, catch me if you can. If you do CONGRATULATIONS jack A$$! RuJJ used to be someone so different so hyped, yet the best package you could ever get in this life. Well things change, life change, yet something’s will never change.

I will still do what I want to do and laugh happily ever after. Don’t worry I aint gonna kill anyone or attempt suicide. Men who lose their balls only will do suicide and killing. This may ridiculous, dammit, I don’t care. Can’t I like at least write this??

Direct translation: Name only big but then you all do things like small kid you know. You know the small kid ah, if break something the kid will go find one stupid 20cent gum to paste it back you know and then pretend like nothing happen. La*****, you sitting place only you all want to secure you know, you all ah never think about other people one liao. I tell you ah, you all play play like this ah, the fler will one day slap you pharking face you know. Don’t be like stupid one mah.. we also human one meh, we also got feelings one, we not animal lar. Like the goat ah, must always ask to do work one. And then one day we cannot work, you cut and eat!

Ithe thodarum!*

* translates to : this will continue

Happy Ponggal - 15 January 2008

Happy ponggal y'all!!

Well before I could write about the International Ponggal Festival, allow me to briefly explain what is ponggal all about. If you have any information that you wanna add on, do drop your comments..

Tamils refer to Pongal as "Tamizhar Thirunal" (meaning "the festival of Tamils"). This festival originated in Tamil Nadu. The saying "Thai Pirandhal Vazhi Pirakkum" meaning "the birth of the month of Thai will pave the way for new opportunities" often is quoted regarding the Pongal festival.

Usually, the festival takes place January 12 — 15 (on the Gregorian calendar). The festival is celebrated four days from the last day of the Tamil month Maargazhi (December — January) to the third day of Thai (January — February).The first day, Bhogi, is celebrated by throwing away and destroying old clothes and materials, by setting them on fire, marking the end of the old Thai and the emergence of the new Thai.

The second day, Pongal, is the main day, falling on the first day of the Tamil month Thai (January 14 — 15). Also known as Sarkarai Pongal or Veetu Pongal, it is celebrated by boiling rice with fresh milk and jaggery in new pots, which are later topped with brown sugar, cashew nuts and raisins early in the morning and allowing it to boil over the vessel. This tradition gives Pongal its name.

Kolam decorations in front of house during Thai PongalThe moment the rice boils over and bubbles out of the vessel, the tradition is to shout of "Ponggalo Ponggal!" and blowing the sangu (a conch), a custom practiced during the festival to announce it was going to be a year blessed with good tidings. For Tamils, it is considered a good sign to watch it boil over, since it means that good luck and prosperity is forthcoming. ThenNew boiled rice is offered to the Nature during sunrise, a gesture which symbolises thanks to the sun and nature for providing prosperity. It is later served to the people present in the house for the ceremony. People also prepare savories and sweets such as vadai, murrukku, payasam and visit each other and exchange greetings.

The third day, Maattu Pongal, is for offering thanks to cattle, as they help farmer in different ways for agriculture. On this day the cattle are decorated with paint, flowers and bells. They are allowed to roam free and fed sweet rice and sugar cane. Some people decorate the horns with gold or other metalic covers. In some places, Jallikattu, or taming the wild bull contest, is the main event of this day and this is mostly seen in the villages.

During the final day, Kaanum Pongal (the word kaanum means "to view") people visit beaches and theme parks. They also chew sugar cane and decorate their houses with kolam. This day is a day to thank relatives and friends for their support in the harvest.[5][3].Although it started as a farmers festival, today it has become a national festival for all Tamils irrespective of their origins, caste or even religion. It is as popular in urban areas as is in rural areas.

Still remember the Deepavali festival, making murukku which was organised by the PuteraMIC at KL Tower. This is another big event to be held on 15th January 2008.

Its the Internation Ponggal Festival@ KL Tower on 15th January 2008.

Venue: Menara KL.
Date: 15 Jan 2008
Time: 10.30am - 12.00pm

For more information you may call PuteraMIC chief, P.Kamalanathan at 012-330 2079 or Thomas at 012-206 8260

Selamat Hari Ponggal!

Somethings will never change..

Change. Thats what we are fighting for. Was listening to Tupac this morning on the way to office and this song came in. Then I realised that everyone in this world want changes in their life. Its either they make the choice to change or they fight for it. Here is the lyrics and video, Tupac - Changes

reminds me of whats happened.....

Come on come on
I see no changes wake up in the morning and I ask myself
is life worth living should I blast myself?
I'm tired of bein' poor and even worse I'm black
my stomach hurts so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn about a negro
pull the trigger kill a nigga he's a hero
Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares
one less hungry mouth on the welfare
First ship 'em dope and let 'em deal the brothers
give 'em guns step back watch 'em kill each other
It's time to fight back that's what Huey said
2 shots in the dark now Huey's dead
I got love for my brother but we can never go nowhere
unless we share with each other
We gotta start makin' changes
learn to see me as a brother instead of 2 distant strangers
and that's how it's supposed to be
How can the devil take a brother if he's close to me?
I'd love to go back to when we played as kids
but things change, and that's the way it is

That's just the way it is
Things'll never be the same
That's just the way it is
aww yeah

I see no changes all I see is racist faces
misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
We under I wonder what it takes to make this
one better place, let's erase the wasted
Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right
'cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
and the only time we chill is when we kill each other
it takes skill to be real, time to heal each other
And although it seems heaven sent
We ain't ready, to see a black President, uhh
It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact
the penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks
But some things will never change
try to show another way but you stayin' in the dope game
Now tell me what's a mother to do
bein' real don't appeal to the brother in you
You gotta operate the easy way
I made a G today But you made it in a sleazy way
sellin' crack to the kids. I gotta get paid,
Well hey, that's the way it is

That's just the way it is
Things'll never be the same
That's just the way it is
aww yeah

We gotta make a change...
It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes.
Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
and let's change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.

And still I see no changes can't a brother get a little peace
It's war on the streets and the war in the Middle East
Instead of war on poverty they got a war on drugs
so the police can bother me
And I ain't never did a crime I ain't have to do
But now I'm back with the blacks givin' it back to you
Don't let 'em jack you up, back you up,
crack you up and pimp smack you up
You gotta learn to hold ya own
~they get~ jealous when they see ya with ya mobile phone
But tell the cops they can't touch this
I don't trust this when they try to rush I bust this
That's the sound of my tool you say it ain't cool
my mama didn't raise no fool
And as long as I stay black I gotta stay strapped
and I never get to lay back
'Cause I always got to worry 'bout the pay backs
some buck that I roughed up way back
comin' back after all these years
rat-tat-tat-tat-tat that's the way it is uhh

That's just the way it is
Things'll never be the same
That's just the way it is
aww yeah

You're my brother, you're my sister
That's just the way it is (way it is,way it is)
Things will never be the same
You're my brother, you're my sister
That's the way it is
Aww yeah

Some things will never change

Interesting forwarded email

When I opened my mailbox this morning, this is the first email that I read and I felt so happy on the Thaipusam part. Read through and drop in your comments.Disclaimer: I got nothing to do with this. Its just a forwarded email :P

Good advice 'cos it is free... change our mind set... built temples but
built better TAMIL schools.

Hindus only concentrate building huge temples,One day KUMBABHISHEGAM spent almost closed to 60 to 70 K for (Kumbabhishegam) only you spent so much.

Sighhh...end of the day temples are not helping anyone but themselves ( a group of people call themselves committee) only concentrate how much collection has been made for a week and auspicious days it's different scenario, AADI AMAVASAI's alone one day collection is 32 K Suprised!! It's just a ordinary temple in a good location....not BT Caves or our HQ in Jln Bandar..!

Overall the priests are ( most of them ) filthy rich !! depends the temple's location and if there is lots of ignorant devotees,and me that temples have all sorts of DEITIES .... they milk money frm me you will be surprised they comes up with hundreds of method! GOOD MARKETING STRATEGY perhaps !!

Archanai...paalkudam....ghee light ( nei vilakku) and top of this you go back home with Half coconut , Two beetle leaf , some beetle nuts ( rare ) not forgetting TWO " dirty" BANANA'S and of course with some flowers in it.

The WHOLE HINDUISM , RELIGIOUS KNOWLEDGE say it all, all are in the half coconut!!
In addition to this the "HUGE"...temple committee is not bothered abt how to spread the spiritual msgs to the devotees , such as YOGA...MEDITATION..etc..etc...I think the Europeans and the Americans are doing better in this aspect such as Yoga...and least we should be proud abt it perhaps.

I am not against it...pls do but that is not all ! It's beyond all this..that is the spritual knowledge...which unable to explain but you have to feel it with yr soul...aaathma..!!

We only need more Tamil Movies in the NATIONAL CHANNELS RAJNIKANTH....VIJAYKANTH.......AJIT....VIJAY..etc..etc me vomit blood!Not forgetting the "KUTTU PAATTU " (despite have more and more KILLING MEGA SERIALS !!)

If we save one year "PAAL KUDAM" money at
all temples for THAIPUSAM it is enough to support all poor families
children school fare for a year....... pls for me.... I am not
going to take PAAL KUDAM from next year thaipusam. ( I spent about RM 70.00
for paal kudam itself every year,5 in a family and PAAL KUDAM charge RM
5.00 per person.(RM 25)(milk cost RM 50) It is better to donate the money
to TAMIL schools.

Appriciate yr BHAKTHY...but BHAKTHY with common sence is better way to serve gopd and man kind!!

Pls change our mind set..........pass around..

Come to think about it, this year why not we take paalkudam somewhere else like Penang, Negeri Sembilan or Ipoh. As for me, we are taking paalkudam 2days before thaipusam. You can avoid traffc, crowd and ridiculous RM10 for a paalkudam and what will end up for Murugan? Only the milk not the cash. Ok we still insist in giving that RM10 to them and what do we get? Lock them up like dogs and let the police to fire water cannon and canisters at them? Cool eh...

Lets do a small math:
Assuming that the visitors in Batu Caves is 1 million people and assuming minimal 5000 people with paalkudam, so:

1 paalkudam = RM 10
5000 x RM 10 = RM 50,000
So imagine if 50,000 paalkudam?

Sounds interesting??

Onbathu Roopai Nootu - The Review

Onbathu roopai nootu. Firstly I have no idea why this movie was given this title but I don’t know how many of us are aware that Onbathu Roopai Nootu was based on a novel written by Thankar Bachan himself which happens to be the director of this movie around 90's. This movie includes cast like Sathyaraj, Archana, Nasser, Rohini, Nitesh Kumar, Inbanila etc. Most of the cast in this movie are more new to screen hence at times when you are watching it you wont be able to identify most of the people. Thanks to Thankar Bachan in his introduction of new faces to movie world.

Ok enough of the introduction, heheh, let’s get into the movie. Before I could get into detail let me warn you that if you are a person who can’t watch emotional movies which includes lots of crying and emotions then Onbathu Roopai Nootu is not your cup of tea. So this movie potrays Satyaraj as Madhavar Padayatchi and Archana as Vellayi in their late 50’s who is living in the village Pathirakottai near Banrooti, oh yeah this is Thankar Bachans native village. If you have watched Thavamai Thavamirundhu, well this movie has the same concept in its story.

Very much emotional, Madhavar padayachi saved lots of money for their late age however their struggle and sacrifice is not appreciated by their children. Due to rivalry with his own relative and his own family, Madhavar padayachi and his wife forced to leave the village to another place. Earlier Madhavar padayachi have helped offered lots of help for Hajabai and Kamilah played by Nasser and Rohini, which afterwards lend his hand to Madhava Padayachi. At this point of time, the story takes different turn and twist. Not much concentrated on flashbacks, as viewer must be able to understand the flow of the story. Very well displayed on screen by Thankar Bachan, Onabathu Roopai Nootu is more like an art movie with excellent performance by Sathyaraj. But I really can’t take it when his wife starts crying, as I mentioned earlier this movie is full of crying and emotions. Gosh I still cant forget how the wife will cry.. wuuuahhhhh ennnnnannggeeee....Life turns bad for Madavar when he finds his sons suffering in poverty and slavery in Pathirakottai and he comes back to the village after 10 years.

Technically as we know Thankar Bachan is an excellent cinematographer, so when I was watching this movie, I was concentrating on how this movie is taken and each shot was very realistic. Guess the credit goes to Thankar and his lighting sense for the movie as he also the DOP for the movie. Oh sorry, DOP is Director of Photography. There is some part I really don’t understand what they are talking reason because of the thick village accent in their script.

On a personal note, I really believe my eyes on how Sathyaraj acted in this movie. Just couple of weeks back I watched Kannamoochi Yenada and comparing Sathyaraj there and here it’s so SO SO unbelievable. The transition of character from the age of mid 40's all the way till 70 years old was so well played by Sathyaraj. To tell you the truth I am running out of words to describe on how he played his Madhavar Padayachi role.

Mark my words; this is an art movie, full fledged performance, emotions and lots of crying. So please watch it and if you can’t make it to the theatres please DO NOT buy pirated DVD. Get the originals and watch.

I don’t know if you guys know that even before the release they came out with a DVD and the saddest part is Thankar Bachan himself caught the shop which was selling this pirated DVD. He made police report and there was a big commotion and this happen in India not Malaysia.

Bye Bye 2007

Bye bye 2007, I know its a bit too late to say this but still not that far away though. Before I could start, HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone. Hope 2008 will bring loads of luck to you all. I know its not that typical of me to greet for new year(all my frens who got my 2007 new year sms will know. hehe) Yeah so 2007 just passed by and so many events happened in my life. Im not bothered about whats happening outside, I bet there is so many bloggers out there who have summarised so much bout 2007 till it bleeds for some readers.

I started off 2007 as usual, CLUBBIN'.. what else.. dancing all the way and met lots of new people. Ventured into business and thank god its still moving on, no worries as I will make it to the FORBES list. Getting pay rise and proper job was a jackpot too. I did promised mum that I will get a house soon, ,voila got it. Lakeside Terrace yeah man thats what Im talking about.. KNow whats the best part of that house? There is lake at the back of my house so every morning when I wake up, Im gonna stand by my window and piss to the lake.. You gotta prob on dat? okay cmon you know im kiddin..

So, gotta house but havent got the key.. waiting. Then came April.. oh yeah i got the house around August. Back again .. April came and life turned into something that each one of us will experience. When people used to tell me that someone will change your life one fine day.. well I didnt believe in all dat shite, gosh it happened and damn yeah it happened for real. Ammu was someone that I didnt expect to happen in my life. If I were to start blogging about her, I aint gonna stop till i become a skeleton at my desk now. It's Ammu, you know right? Do I have to tell you ammu kutty?? krrrssscc (thats the sound she will make most of the time, heheheh)
After that had some ups and downs, cmon Im human too. Life cant be so heaven all the time right? But manage to come through all that crap. Externally, my friends got married so many of them, each wedding I will angpow them RM 50 minimum and there was about at least 15-20 weddings I attended the whole. So you do the math ok.

Now I cant stop blogging about ammu. She used to tell me that I changed her life and so on, so many fights and arguments we had gone through but till now never once we hated each other. For once I did something good, telling my parents. They were shocked too but this is life mummy, gotta move on. Nah they were happy in fact VERY HAPPY and of coursed SURPRISED. So why do you think Im giving my frens RM50 minimum angpow for their wedding? To get back larrrr what elsee!!! Investment what? Correct or not.

Then we had all the temple breakings and the event of the year was the HINDRAF and BERSIH rally. Caused a stir indeed, why not. How would you feel when you're shaken? Take action. Well as I have blogged on this, as for now I choose not to comment.
Ever experienced house burning? Well we did and that is for Tamil New Year. I was running out of my house with towel, damn. Cant forget dat. And that night...mmm thats where it all started.. Right ammu? :D hehehheh kkkrrrrsss

Now there is so many things that happened in 2007 that I really cant remember now, to write. The other was, when I was shitting in my office toilet when I wanted to write about 2007 and I had so much of ideas, damn now when I start I cant remember anything. Excuse me.. why are you laughing now? Because I shitted is it? Why you dont shit is it? Do you actually feel embarassed to say that you are going to shit or even fart. Thats nature man. My colleague Kenny so openly will say he is gonna shit and Im not ok with it. Have you come across some jackals who make a big ooh-aah when someone farts. I know its rude to fart loud but admit it if you fart and you are going to shit. Its nature, if you dont do all this wanna know what will happen?

Scientifically proven that when a human dont clear their stomach (which means shit - im just trying to be nice) it will create some sort of acid which can eat up your stomach wall and intestine which at the same time will create this acidic gas, I dont know what the hell is the name is for that gas but Im dead sure it can kill you. Surprised how I know all this? Well I had this Irrital Bowel something problem, so I met the doctor and he explained to me. So the next time you wanna fart, JUST FART!! and admit its yours and make sure the jackals around you accept the fact that you farted. Its not that theirs smells like lavender where they can save it and use for aromatheraphy right. And if you wanna shit, tell nicely and go and shit.

Oh goshh, Raj can you like come back to your blog, from your desk you went all the way to toilet. Ok guys lemme see what else, ahh yeah, this is 50 years Malaysia merdeka and wear your unity band. If you dont have go and get one. Closing of 2007, Benazir Bhutto was assasinated. I really dont know what she did but I do know that she is an extremist. So rest in peace.

31st December - Went to Chilis Bangsar with Austin my Sex Guruji, my sister and ammu, ate nicely. And then had fight with three of them and put up my doggy dogg mask. (mein knows what it means - right mein) the fight continue with ammu. Sorry ammu. BUt now all ok

Finally we are here, 2008 and with grand opening where Malaysia's Health Minister became a porn star. Hhahahhah what a opening man. Anyway to all my friends who smsed me that day wishing new year, sorry I couldnt reply because my line was barred. Happy new year guys.

Happy new year 2008, and my new year resolutions is to get in touch with all my friends and keep contact with them. Yeah for real this time!

~Peace, make love not war~
