Kisah si pengemis


Semalam tunggu wife di station LRT Masjid Jamek... so, dalam masa menunggu tu.. untuk membuang masa yang memang free.. aku pun melihat keadaan sekeliling.. melihat karenah orang ramai yang baru balik dari bekerja.. ada bermacam-macam ragam dan rupa.. Ada yang muka tensen.. happy.. atau murung.. Aku buat assumption yang tensen tu mesti kena marah oleh boss di pejabat.. hehehe.. dan yang happy tu mesti telah dapat berita yang memang buat drg tu happy... dan yang murung pula maybe sbb dorang belum gaji... muahahahaha !!!


Kelibat sepasang anak-beranak (aku agak jer) meminta sedekah menarik perhatian aku.... kedua-duanya (pompuan dan lelaki) cacat penglihatan.. duduk di tepi tangga sambil menjual tisu... standard la kan untuk pengemis.. mesti jual tisu punya la..  Aku pandang mereka... Suddenly, yang pengemis lelaki tu buka mata.. dia pandang kiri-kanan.. kemudian tutup mata balik... errr.. mcm menyamar jadi cacat jer aku tengok.. ??


Dan part paling best sekali... dalam masa 30 minit aku berdiri di situ... maybe pengemis tu dah dapat income around RM20... serius nie.. sbb aku kira brp orang yg bagi sedekah kat drg.. perrghhh... cuba bayangkan kalau drg duduk di situ 10 jam (8 pagi sampai 6 ptg).. drg dah dpt income RM200 sehari... atau RM6000 sebulan (30 hari)... mak aii.. dah setaraf gaji manager aku kat ofis.. Ini la rakyat Malaysia... rakyat yang pemurah.. sbb tu ramai rakyat asing yang sanggup dtg ke Malaysia semata-mata untuk minta sedekah.. Tapi kat kampung drg.. rumah banglo bro.. silap haribulan.. pengemis yang nmpk mcm rakyat termiskin tu.. lebih kaya dari kamu semua.. Chowww !!

Bukit Tabur, Melawati (Part II)


Rileks time... tempat ni dikenali sebagai "1st Stop". Berehat sambil makan makanan energy (coklat) utk tambah stamina. Time ni juga, semua pendaki yang sememangnya 1st time mendaki bukit ni tak tahu lagi bahaya bakal tunggu kat depan tu.. hehehehe.


Biarpun penat dan takut.. ye la beb.. gaung tu curam.. mesti la takut oii... tp para pendaki masih mampu tersenyum dan buat posing maut.. hehehe.. 


Tempat ni kalau jatuh memang mati katak !!! Aku pun seram juga masa nak turun curam ni.. Tapi akhirnya semua pendaki berjaya melepasi halangan pertama ini. Ada lagi halangan yang kedua.. Tapi yang pertama ni la yang paling bahaya.. err.. bahaya bagi aku la.. hehehe.. serius gaung kat bawah tu tinggi.. tak nmpak pun tanah.. cuma daun2 pokok jer !!!


Horayyy !!! Ini puncak pertama yang kami berjaya tawan.. siap ada bendera Jalur Gemilang lagi.. Mula2 ingat setakat ni jer puncak yang ada.. Sekali tengok.. ada 4 puncak yang kami kena tawan sebelum boleh diiktiraf sebagai berjaya.. hehehe.



Finally.... setelah mengharungi perjalanan yang penuh mencabar... kami sampai ke garisan penamat !!! yeahhh !! congrat to all.. biarpun penat.. tapi sempat lg posing untuk gambar kenangan bersama-sama pendaki lain. Maybe next time nak panjat lagi bukit nie.. Errr.. masa gambar ni kena rakam... actually, tanpa disedari semua orang.. ada ular sedang tido kat sebelah kami tu.. Nasib baik xder apa2 kejadian buruk yang berlaku... Tak sabar nak turun. 

Untuk mengetahui dengan lebih lanjut pasal ekspedisi ni.... sila klik di sini Bukit Tabur..... chowwww !!

Bukit Tabur, Melawati





Pheewwiitttt....... !!! Yes... that's the sound for the great adventure that we experienced last weekend.

If last time, we have been climbing the Bukit Gasing .. This time, we conquered the peak of Bukit Tabur located in Selangor, between Melawati and UIA Gombak. For those who live in the Klang Valley area, must know about this hill... This hill could be seen from the MRR2 highway (Gombak to Ampang).

Tabur Hill also know as Dragon's Backbone have a route length of 16KM with the height of peak is about 250 meters above the sea. There is no public transport to the starting point of the hike.. so, you need a taxi or you own car to get there.

Bukit Tabur
We started our climb at exactly 7.45am... very semangat huh... Started with the easy access, it's turn into a "nightmare".. Seriously, along the route is scary!!! kiri-kanan gaung yang curam.. if you step wrongly... perrghh.. mmg confirm matai la..


Statements that notify about the horrific accidents happened here.
Moral of story... jangan mau tunjuk eksyen bila panjat bukit ni.. I'm not kidding. Nasib baik la ada member yang jadi guide time panjat bukit ni.. kalau pigi sendiri... hmmm.. mmg tidak menjadi la plan menuju puncak.. hehehe.


Kalau jatuh.... mati katak !!
Spiderman.... 
There were many stages we had to climb the mountain wall like a Spiderman.. safety not guaranteed when climb this 90 degrees wall .. that's why I told you.. silap step.. mmg matai.. better don't look down if you have height problem!! Kalau jatuh pigi tu gaung, tiada insurans.. So, mati katak la!! Huhuhu.

There are four peaks that need to be captured and of course it's not easy to conquer these peaks. Sometimes, I wonder... what is the hell i'm doing here??? This is Sunday morning... sepatutnya aku bangun lambat hari ni... hehehe. 


Salah satu peak yang terdapat d Bukit Tabur
Although there were many  challenges that challenge the mind.. it did not discourage us to continue the journey.. And we made it to the end at 1145am AT LAST... okay la kan jarak masa tu untuk kami yang first-timer panjat ni bukit.. hehehe.

The beautiful scenery from the top will make you forget about the "nightmare"...  From here, you can see the views of KL City, neighborhood Melawati.. even the other hills in the Klang Valley.. And also view of large lake.. we were told that, the lake is used as a water catchment area. It is used to supply clean water to consumers in the Klang Valley.. Memang rugi la kalau tidak bawa kamera.

The lake view
KL City view
For second time.. honestly, I'm not ready to climb the hill without a guide YET! But, I will try to make it maybe next time.. Till then, stay tune for my next adventure... chowww !!

History of Ibanez

A Short History Of A Company With A Long History



Hello guys..... 

Of course, is certainly out there... there are too many music fans. There are talented people who can play various musical instruments and singing as well. But, for me... I can't sing the songs.. hehehe.. very bad !! hahaha.. that's why la I didn't join the competition of Akademi Fantasia.. hehehe. I only can play guitar.. compose songs. But to sing... mesti kamurang mau muntah + sakit kepala kalau dengar.. hahaha. 

How many people know to play guitar? And how many people have knowledge about the guitar? hmm... ini dua fakta yang berbeza.. don't confused aaa Talented vs knowledged adalah dua perkara yang berbeza.. hehehe.. cheewahh !! mcm cikgu muzik la pula.. 

Jom kita tanya orang yang pandai bermain gitar. If we ask them.. What brand of guitar that would be their choice? Of course they will say  Fender, Ibanez or Kramer. Tetapi, mereka tahukah asal-usul gitar tersebut.. hehehe.. jom kita bongkar rahsia sejarah gitar ini.

my collection
Ibanez

If you wanted a total history of Ibanez you´d have go back to 1908 when a company named Hoshino began as a sheet music store and later music products distributor in Nagoya Japan.

If you wanted a little less completeness than that you´d go back about 1945 when Hoshino began distributing a Spanish guitar named Ibanez. Or perhaps you´d simply go to the Mid 60´s when Hoshino, who by that time had purchased the rights to the Ibanez name, began shipping incredibly funky looking guitars to the United States, many of which were actually sold in department stores.

But for most of us, Ibanez pretty much begins almost 30 years ago, when Hoshino opened an office near Philadelphia, PA for more efficiently distributing Ibanez guitars to the United States. Most of those guitars were Ibanez famous high quality (but very inexpensive) copies of just about everything–you name it, we probably made a version of it. At that time many American instruments were going through an unfortunate period of increasing prices with decreasing quality, and these copies hit a ready market.

But the people with Ibanez weren´t content with just copying and Ibanez began making their own designs: the solid body Artists (played by Bob Weir of the Dead) the Iceman (first made famous by Paul Stanley of KISS and the George Benson guitars, the first jazz boxes designed for higher volume stage playing. Many of these "first" Ibanez guitars continue to increase in value and a good number are now highly prized collector´s items.

Ibanez Iceman
By 1976, the Ibanez copy era officially came to an end when one of the major American guitar manufacturers--no longer amused by the copiers–successfully sued the highest profile copier, Ibanez. But by that time it didn´t matter–Ibanez had already left the copies behind and was fast becoming an innovative guitar company in its own right.

By the mid-80´s with the interest in instrumental rock guitar on the rise, Ibanez collaborated with players such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Paul Gilbert and brought out the JEM, JS, RG and S models. Today, present day versions such as these models still considered the standard in hard rock and instrumental rock guitars.

Today, Ibanez offers the huge number of 4, 5, and 6 basses in the Soundgear as well as the basses of the future, the luthite-bodied Ergodynes.

Till then...... stay tune..  more history about guitar... chowww !!

Bukit Gasing, PJ

Helloooooo everyboday... lama tidak update ni blog.. hehehe.. you know why? B.U.S.Y... yess !! it is the main reason why I rarely update this blog. 

So, guys... what are you doing on weekend?

Any interesting activities to share with us? hehehe... well yesterday, along with my officemate, we climbed Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya. This hill is located between the boundary of KL and Selangor. 
Before the journey begin 
with my boss... the DP Senior Executive. 
There is nothing interesting about this hill.. Because the normal ascent route and basic. But it is okay for us to start climbing training. Hobi baru ni... "mendaki bukit"... hahaha. 

Okay, lets talk about Bukit Gasing.. The actual name of the hill is Taman Pendidikan Bukit Gasing. Located at Petaling Jaya, This is my 1st time climbing the hill. And I managed to climb up to the summit in 45 minutes. hehehehe... okay la kan utk 1st timer.

Our trip began with a passage that is not too challenging.. Perjalanan yang kadangkala mendatar dan di sini ramai pengunjung yang memilih untuk berjogging. And maybe it is the unofficial rules here, setiap pengunjung akan mengucapkan "Good Morning.. Selamat Pagi atau Hai" setiap kali bertembung dengan pengunjung yg lain.. hmm.. memang peramah. 

relax dulu la... 


The scary Suspension Bridges

There are huts built for the convenience of visitors to relax. And the best part is the Suspension Bridges.. !perrghhh.. lama tidak naik tu jambatan... rasa seram pula.. hahahaha. 

However, not all easy access .. There is also a challenging route, especially when you want to get to the top of the hill. Climbing 70 degrees.. di sini la aku "pancit" sekejap.... kepala rasa pening.. kin malu ja ba.. hehehe.

Another five months to practice before the real adventure begins. And after this, we plan to climb Bukit Melawati, Hulu Klang.. till then... chooooww !!

Seven Wonders..

Everyone knows about the Seven Wonders of the World... According to Wikipedia - the free encyclopedia - Seven Wonders of the World mean  the first known list of the most remarkable creations of classical antiquity, and was based on guide-books popular among Hellenic sight-seers and only includes works located around the Mediterranean rim. The number seven was chosen because the Greeks believed it to be the representation of perfection and plenty. Many similar lists have been made.

Among The Seven Wonders of the World is The Great Pyramid of Giza, Colosseum, Great Wall of China, Hagia Sophia, Taj Mahal, Chichem Itza, Grand Canyon...

Today, I want to talk about... "Miracle in the first seven years of love relationship".. If the World had a miracle, our love relationship has its own history.. Cehhh.. sound mcm gempak je kan... hehehehe.

Starting with just a friend, seven years ago.. it turns into a love.. and thus, brought us to the gates of marriage. And of course there are many challenges in maintaining this relationship before we tied the knot. Among the most difficult challenges is ---> didn't get the blessings of the family.. why?? Because of religions issue! Yes, she was a non Muslim. Memang susah time tu.. hehehe.. but, with the magic power of love.. We managed to overcome these challenges.

During the seven years.. pelbagai cabaran susah-senang telah kami harungi bersama... and we will pertahankan cinta kami sehingga ke akhir hayat.. InsyaAllah sehingga ke syurga..

The 7 wonders with my other half...

1st time bergambar berdua... masih shy-shy cat..

Melaka Maju 2010....




CONGRATULATIONS to the peoples of Malacca.. !!!!! For me and all Malaysians, we are very proud of the declaration..

Malacca has been declared as a special public holiday today, to mark its declaration as a developed state. Announcement was made by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak via video conference at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur, last night.

Interestingly, the declaration was made promptly at 8:10 pm (2010), the date of 20.10.2010. -- The numbers 20:10, 20/10/2010. So unique... isn't?
According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Melaka treated as a developed country after meeting the five key aspects including economic, social, infrastructure, environment and administration.

Various events have been and will be held in conjunction with this.. Antaranya Kayuhan Melaka Maju 2010 dan Gotong-Royong Perdana.. According to some sources, the event also aims to record the most number of cyclists who participated at one time by the Malaysia Book Of Records.. So, kepada sesiapa yang ada basikal tu.. jom la sertai acara ini.. mana la tau kan dpt jg sijil daripada Malaysia Book of Records.. hehehe.


Five important aspects that include 32 indicators that are not lower than the target set by the OECD. Among them are related to the rate of inflation, unemployment, the growth rate of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), life expectancy, mortality and crime rates.

Once again.... congratulations to the peoples of Malacca... !!!

Date of 20.10.2010

Hello everyone... the weather in KL is sunny, how bout your area? hmm.. before this, everyone were busy talking about the date of 10.10.2010.. Many couples took this oppurtunity to create their own history on that day... Be it declaration for being a partner, engaged or getting married.. Can't denied that the date is really beautiful and unique.

Despite the fun dan excitement, there was also sadness on that day. The tragedy of horrific involving six vehicles on the Kilometer 222.9, enough to remember the families - of the victims of those involved - that date as black history.

Now, the beautiful and unique numbers  come again. This time with the numbers 20.10.2010... What is the unique in this date?  Again, couple will pick this date to declare their relationship as couple, engagement or wedding. Such things that happened on 10.10.2010 will be repeated. Only, it is hope that horrific accident will not accur again... Safety First.

For me, 20.10.2010 is nothing special.. hehehehe... next week baru ada yang special.. I Love You Tonite lagi tu... hahahahaha.

Music is my life..

SINCE I moved to KL in 2003, sejak itu juga I rarely play the guitar. Playing music in a group is almost never... hehehe.. Want to know why? Because I do not have a guitar. Even guitar kapok pun tiada. Yes, I know.. ianya di luar jangkaan.. hahahaha.. I also don't believe..  

Hmmmm.... bestnya kalau semua ni milik aku.
Everytime we walk in the mall, if there is a shop selling musical instruments (especially guitar), I will stop for a moment to look at different types of guitar available in the shop.. dalam hati selalu angan2.. kalau la aku ada koleksi guitar mcm ni punya banyak... hehehe.

Sedang memilih pick guitar yang sesuai
Maybe, my wife noticed that I am still interested in playing guitar even though very rarely... hehehe... kalau sdh hobi mau buat mcm mana kan. Mcm juga tu org yang suka memancing... rasa gatal ja tu tangan kalau tidak pigi kolam, sungai atau laut..

One day, my wife suddenly asked me out for a walk.. hmm.. duduk di rumah pun bosan juga.. hehehe.. so, we went to Ampang Point mall.. My wife took me to the store Cash & Conventer (kedai yang menjual barangan terpakai)... and.. jeng.. jeng.. jeng.. dia suruh I pilih electrik guitar... hah.. !!!! Are you trying to mempermainkan my feelings?? well, tanpa membuang masa, I choose to buy a red guitar... Fender in red color!!! sound perfect to me.

My guitar..... :)
Although, the guitar is not a new guitar.. but, I like it so much.. I tak kisah la baru atau lama... yang penting it was bought by the women I love.. Thanks Honey, for understanding my hobby.
