Tsunami @ Haeundae

I just watched this movie, Tsunami at Haeundae, at Genting Highlands Cinema and it touched my heart so deep that I can even feel droplets of water rushing down to my chin.. It’s been a while since I had those type of feelings which gets into me deeply and touches my soul.. It’s been a while since I get really swallowed up by the whole scene or should I say that I got fascinated more than ever in this movie..


I can still recall few touching scenes inside the movie even until now.. The images keep flashing through my memories and it feels like I’m in the movie together with those refugees who runs for their life with their love ones and sacrificed themselves for the others.. It feels so yesterday, literally.. even though I’d never been through those type of situations or circumstances..

Sometimes, it makes me think..

How worth can our life be?!

Are we spending our time in a right way?!

What had we been doing in the past??!

How far can you go to save your love ones?!

Is trying to be a hero something great or is it stupid?!

and more..

Tsunami at Haeundae is not just a movie to me.. It carries a lot of powerful message to everyone who’re watching that movie.. I don’t know how far can you think of when you are watching this movie, but I’d got a lot in my mind..


I’d rate this movie 4.5 out of 5 stars if you asked me..

I’m also well impressed by this movie as it seemed to be like any others big movie production from Hollywood.. It’s really up to the standard.. Of course, let’s not compare much from Hollywood as we always know who leads the market.. The thing is, it’s seriously a good film..

I’m not going to reveal anything from that movie as I think you should go watch it in the cinema while you can.. Seriously, IT’S A GOOD FILM, I repeat… It’s worth paying RM11 or RM12 for such a movie.. Let’s support Asia’s movie once in a while..

I told my girlfriend that I shouldn’t have watched it.. Well, I was just joking about that.. I would like to watch it again if I were asked to watch it again.. It’s a good film, why not?!

The only part is you should not watch the movie with the light on.. I don’t want anyone to see me in those type of situation.. Well, ya.. “those type”..

So, go go! Go watch it while it’s still showing in the cinema!

Sharing is Caring

I received this email which touched my heart and even tickles my heart as I laughed my heart out in the end.. Wonder why is this forwarded mail so powerful that it moves and tickles my heart?!

READ IT and FINISH IT from top to the bottom of the story to get the whole picture..

The sharing of marriage...
The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink.

He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.

He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them . As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering.

Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.'

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything

People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink. 

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.'

Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?'

..and she answered..


Highlight to see what she answered..






.. 'THE TEETH!!'

Hari Raya Break Symptoms

I had this Hari Raya Break Symptoms.. Like any other breaks, I’d plan it way before the break.. When I say “way before”, I mean really way way before like few months break..

“But why?!” you asked..

Blame the airlines for the expensive tickets as time draws near!!!

Okay.. Back to the symptoms which I think most of us are infected by it most of the time.. I mean, most of the holidays.. So, instead of saying it just Hari Raya Break Symptom, we just make it our Holiday Symptoms..

Holiday Symptoms:
1. Lazy
2. Dizzy
3. Complaining the things that revolves around
4. Can’t think properly - Haywire
5. Couldn’t focus
6. Drag everything to the end

Well, those are normal symptoms for most of us la.. maybe not all.. but I’m sure you’ll get one of it.. Just don’t tell me you get this like throughout the year.. You seriously gotta check yourself out and go and take a break! A SERIOUS BREAK!

Anyway, what I’ve always admire are the courage and the struggles for the Muslims during the “Fasting” or “Puasa” period.. Seriously, two thumbs up to all of you who didn’t even skip your fast or puasa for any selfish reason.. But for those who skipped class with the reason “puasa”, it’s quite a pity la.. My sentiment for you all..

I seriously can’t even imagine myself not drinking any water at all for the whole day.. Food maybe I can still tolerate but for not drinking, that’s like the hardest part.. Perhaps, if you do fast, let me know how you struggle through this…

Are the first few days the hardest or was it the last day of fasting the hardest? First few days ‘cause of the sudden change or routine or last day of fasting with foods around and with the festive season drawing nearer?

Last but not least, Me, Harry, would like to wish you all “Selamat Hari Raya”.. Enjoy your holiday!! Oh.. enjoy your foods but don’t over eat.. enjoy your duit raa but don’t overspent it… Just don’t over do it!

Selamat Hari Raya..
Eid Mubarak..

Like the new header of mine?!

Well, from the previous two post, I’d mentioned a lot about my header.. However, there were a lot of changes before I’d actually picked this current one.. I did asked few of my friends to do a bit of survey and to get votes.. In the end, it turned out well..

The concept of this header was actually having the word that looks like a story book or even a magazine header.. I used clean font type to portray the targeted word which is “The Twilight Edition”, and, of course, smaller fonts with different color for the slogan which is “more personal” and “more mysterious”

Well, let’s do less word and more picture this time.. Let’s see the step-by-step evolution of this header..

(first version, without the link, simple and clean design)

(second version, added the link below in orange color and enlarge the height)

(third version, added “Blog Of Life” in the bottom right)

(forth version, moved the “Blog Of Life” to the top of the wordings)

(fifth version, added some decoration to the “Blog Of Life”)


(sixth version, added the “..and the story continues..” at the bottom right)

That’s not all, ‘cause my friends thought that, too many words make the header lost it's focus, so, the only solution is to make the orange link at the bottom left smaller..

(final version, made the orange link smaller)

However, I did some funny tryout to make the header more interesting within the versions.. Well, of course, the failure ones..

(Failure experiment, colored the “i” into red to make it more mysterious)

So, which one do you actually like?

If you asked me, I’d say the current one.. (Of course lah, I designed one what..)

Blog Of Life – Twilight Edition

You may had noticed the change of the blog header and also I had updated my post since few days back.. Been busy with assignments and so on.. (Last minute work as usual..)

Anyway, some of you might ask me why “Twilight”?! Why not any other edition?!

(Blog header on the top of the page..)

It took me quite some times to actually think about the new theme for this blog.. Last time, it was just “Blog Of Life” with the theme that reflects our life as a storybook and everyday in our life is written in it..

This time, I came up with this Twilight Edition, mainly to reflect another part of myself which I don’t normally show it in the blog.. Perhaps, if you read back my blog, I’d been trying to write something in positive approach and only little bit of negative thoughts..

Speaking of which, it’s time for me to get more personal with my readers and show the mysterious part of Harry.. And, of course,  you might notice the picture on the right of the header..

(The twilight reflections..)

This picture came with a concept which I’m looking the mirror and reflecting myself in multiple ways (multiple mirrors).. Mirror has always been like a twilight zone to me since I fantasized a lot last time..I’d even written a story about the twilight zone which connects the underworld with our real world..

The thing is.. there are actually times that we feel like expressing ourselves and we could not find a right way of expressing it.. This very place, will be the place where I spill my feelings and emotions with things that revolve around me..

So, how do you think about this theme?! Like it or thumbs down?

It’s been long..

That I haven’t seen your face.. I’m tryna be strong.. *and the music continues..*

(Akon’s very first album cover)

Well, that’s the beginning of the song, Right Now (Na Na Na) from Akon anyway.. I know it’s been like ages since my last update in this blog.. It’s like tons of my readers been asking me what happened to me and this and that..

Well, I should say I took a short break from the blogosphere and officially announce that I’m back in action again.. This time, it’ll be more personal and more mysterious than ever.. *Refer to the new header above.. Cool eh?!* I’ll introduce about that in my upcoming post so stay tune for that..

So, time to answer my question to my readers who had been wondering, whether or not, I’m still alive.. Well, I pretty much alive here.. See, you are already reading this till here.. I know, I know, you’ll most probably start “sweating” there and keep cursing me for my crap.. Ain’t you glad that I’m back?!

(Picture from 2 months ago.. Didn’t take much after stop blogging..)

Actually, I took a break in blogosphere, thinking that it took out big portion of my time everyday to come here, updating the post, checking out the comments and everything else..  Due to that reason, I’d a bit problem in managing my time with my girlfriend as well.. Imagine I’m locking myself in the room even at the weekends for blogging.. IMAGINE THAT!

(Have you watched this movie yet?)

Oh.. Which actually reminds me that tomorrow it’s the exact 16months that we’ve been together.. *winks* Well, hope everything goes smoothly lah, ya..

I’d this thing going on in the online radio field which needs me to run and drive it.. I’m like the root of it.. Without it, all those long history I had with it will vanish together with it and gone to waste.. I’d introduced my this online radio before long ago, but just to freshen up the memory again.. It’s called iStream Radio Network which basically based in Malaysia and to share all the hits or music to all the music lovers out there.. We had a little bit plan here and there but I’ll update you guys when it’s all good.. It’s a long term project, so it takes time..

Of course, apart from using up my time on this radio, I have my university stuffs to do as well.. Pretty much those exams and some assignments.. It’s all good at this moment, if you asked..

(Taken two weeks back..)

There’s tons more to talk about but I’m sure you’ll fall asleep before the real things even begin.. I’ll save the rest in all those upcoming blogs.. So,prepare yourself with a pillow before coming here alright?!

Missed you guys soooo much..
