I lay on my back on the water
Shutting away all my cares
When I open my eyes
I see bright sky
Full of hopes
Filled with possibilities
They can wait
I'll float some more

moments in time

There was a time
And there were moments
Imprinted deep in his mind

Sketched onto the soul
No one hear the cries
His bleeding beating heart 

Hidden too well
Behind this wall of smile

He may learn to live again
Get on with the future
But he haven't forgotten
As hard as he tries

Perhaps tomorrow
He will stop seeing you
Everywhere he goes
In everything he sees
Smells, and hears

In every breath he takes

But the thing is
He doesn't want to forget

Bamboo Groove

How many stories has the groove been told?
Does it remember?
Stories from when it was a seedling
Mine was one of them.

Thank you!

I know this is a couple of days overdue, but it's been truly a mad couple of days. So many calls to make, to thank the people who helped and supported me through out the whole thing. Text, WhatsApp and messages to be replied. And congratulations to be sent out to the other winners. Plus the VP and MT candidates are still making their rounds, I am barely getting any sleep at all. I am making far more call now than during my campaigning period!

Running the campaign all on my own, no team, no running mate, and against 3 other quite popular candidates, I wasn't exactly expecting to win. So you can say that it came as a huge surprise to me eventhough many believe in me, and that I could do this.

And as always, I want to do this properly, thanking my FB friends that been supportive of me all this while, for believing in me and giving me a push in moments of doubt.

For all the well wishes and good vibes that you have sent my way, I am ever so grateful.

To my political and life advisors, thank you for the tips, ideas and reality checks you guys hammered into me. You know who you are ;)

To my soundboard, I couldn't have gotten through the past 3 weeks without you putting up with my rants and moodswings. Sorry if I bit your head a bit too hard. The 'Moleskine' handwritten message is brilliantly touching. How do I thank you?

To Tisa, thank you for the good lucks charms you sew ever so beautifully. I am glad your works were with me both on the 'Penamaan Calon' and 'Persidangan & Pemilihan' day. I know you were with me in spirit all the way too.

To my godmothers on FB, I am glad you guys do take me seriously at times, in the midst of all the silliness and all.

To Banafsheh, how do I express my gratitudes? The fact that you agreed to be my official representative was already mind blowing, but when you proclaim yourself my campaign manager for the day, it made me cry. You did beautifully representing me, and I bet quite a few of 'perwakilan' were charmed by your great PR.

To my cheerleaders and wonderful friends who are with me all the way through on FB, there's too many to name each and everyone, so as not to risk missing anyone, I am not going to be specific. You are all my pillars of strength. I am glad most of you see the potential underneath all this kookines, who would have guess I take politic so seriously. I am so glad I do.

To family members, I hope I made you proud. I wish my late uncle Pak Chaq is still here to see that atleast one of his nieces/nephew is continuing his legacy. I wish I could be half as good as he was, and to be remembered as dearly when I am gone.

To Janaki, I'm glad I won on your birthday. Wish William is still here to see this, he foretold this journey a while back, but I was too silly to give it any serious thought.

To the one closest to my heart, thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

As Zahid said, there's no time for celebrations, the real work has begun, and it's going to be an uphill battle. Keep your well wishes coming this way, I need them. 

Seriously, I do.

I love you all.

Tick Tock

Less than 24 hours to go. 

Not only I have butterflies the stomach, I think the whole insect kingdom is having a ball in there. Thank you for this, oldsoul, it's going to be my good luck charm.

Never shall I take this for granted anymore.

Having an attack in the middle of the night, after years of being asthma-free and to realize all the puffs are empty can be really scary. Thank god for the caffeine trick, I survived the night. The panic was actually making the attack far worse.
