My Every Day

Every day I wake up from my cozy bed,
Clean myself up,
Drag my ass to work,
Facing stress & pressure from some a-holes,
Preparing stupid paper works,
Begging for simple approval signatures is like going to war zone,
Browsing internet for free,
Reading hilarious & brainless political news,
Downloading songs for free,

In the end, I feel exhausted,
Going back to my 'fortress',
Watching my big screen TV,
Then fall asleep for the next boring day...


God gives me my life,
God gives me my health,
God gives me financial source,
God gives me chance to learn in an organization,
God gives me opportunity to know the news,
God gives me my whole life!

Belajar Bercakap Loghat Kelantan (Blajar Kkecek Kelate) 1

Untuk menjadikan pengajian ini lebih berkesan & 'menusuk kalbu', semua entry Belajar Loghat Kelantan akan ditulis dalam Bahasa Melayu.

Bahasa Melayu Loghat Kelantan = Kkecek Kelate

Kkecek Kelate adalah 'lingua franca' untuk seluruh negeri Kelantan Darul Naim termasuklah kawasan2 yg bersempadan dgnnya. Ini meliputi Negeri Terengganu (daerah Besut & Setiu) & Pahang (Merapoh & sebhgn kecil Lipis).

Negeri Perak tak masuk sbb sempadan Perak-Kelantan adalah hutan tebal & sgt sedikit penduduknya, namun jika gajah & harimau boleh berbicara nescaya mereka juga akan Kkecek Kelate. Bahasa yg seakan2 sama juga dipertuturkan di selatan Thai disbbkan tali persaudaraan yg erat antara Kelantan dgn Selatan Thai bahkan sesetangah pihak beranggapan penduduk Melayu selatan Thai turut Kkecek Kelate.

Senang sahaja - semua perkataan Bahasa Melayu yang berakhir dgn sukuan 'an', 'ang' & 'am' ditukarkan kepada 'e' (e taling, yg digunakan dlm sebutan 'merah', 'Perak' & 'berak').
Kelantan - Kelate
kawasan - kawase
hutan - hute

senang - sene
putu mayam - putu maye

Nutrisi sebab pemain tak cergas

Nutrisi sebab pemain tak cergas

KUALA LUMPUR - Program Nutrisi Sukan untuk pasukan bawah 15, 16 dan 17 kebangsaan di Institut Sukan Negara (ISN), Bukit Jalil semalam seakan-akan membuka pekung kepada punca kelemahan kecergasan para pemain bola sepak kebangsaan.

Bagaikan kilat memancar, terbit satu persoalan. Adakah kelemahan aspek penjagaan makanan di pasukan negeri atau kelab yang bersaing di Liga M menjadi punca pemain kurang cergas?

What a joke?

I used to work in Pasir Gudang not far from Stadium J-Corp (ala Old Trafford for the Johor Pasir Gudang Football Team).

From my observations, these players routine after their morning practice was to 'lepak-lepak' while having roti canai & teh tarik...

Imagine those in Kelantan or Terengganu where their breakfast is Nasi Berlauk, Nasi Dagang, Nasi Kerabu.... and all sorts of heavy meals.

And we're talking about world class athletes?

Pendekar Bujang Lapok (1959)

Ihh... ihh... ihh... ihh...

Alkisahhh... Alkisah maka tersebut lah kisahhh... Sang Kancil datang beramai-ramai mengadap ke bawah duli yang maha mulia Sultan Firaunnn...

Mambang mabuk minum brandy...

Alip.. Ya.. Mim... Buaya!

Mata di tengah-tengah? Ada ekor? Atas tanah? Aa.. Huruf mambang tanah!


These are the dialogues that keep Malaysians laughing for 50 years.

How did the great Allahyarham Tan Sri P. Ramlee & friends able to create such comedy film that lasted for so long?

In addition, growing up for nearly 29 years watching the his movies has enabled me to memorized most of the lines...

Compare to current so called comedians that make us feel annoyed rather than laughed.

Finally... The Dark Knight

No other movie that I sincerely wanted to blog other than The Dark Knight (2008).

Yes, I admit I am a Bat-maniac.

The film follows Bruce Wayne/Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon & District Attorney (DA) Harvey Dent struggle to deal with the chaos unleashed by an anarchist mastermind known only as the Joker. While Batman pushes himself to the extent of beyond normal heroism and Gordon have to deal with it, Harvey Dent transforms from the heroic DA to the disfigured killer Two-Face.

This movie is more a crime movie than a superhero/comic book movie. It depicts the gritty escalation in criminal underworld caused by a man fighting it while dressed up as a giant bat & a fallen hero succumbs due of his passion in legal justice. Not to forget the Joker who is a "psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy".

This movie was a both critical & commercial success garnering worldwide praises & a $999,292,907 gross revenue. However it was snubbed (idiot!) in the upcoming Oscar & failed to contest in Best Screenplay, Best Director & Best Movie categories. It was nominated for other 8 categories anyhow.

As a tradition of amirmukhtar reviews:

This movie shows a hero (Batman) sacrifices his image to ensure the people will not lose hope after the Joker successfully turn a legal hero (Dent) into a killer.

Batman persuaded Police Commissioner Gordon to blame himself (Batman) responsible for the murders.

Dent's heroism was purely due to his personalities & position as a legal official while Batman heroism is based on a symbol. And a symbol is indestructible and incorruptible .


Don't you think we should always elect a hero/leader based on the symbol/principles rather than personalities & position (and sweet promises)?

Leaders come & go...

But principles will remain whoever fill the post.

National Treasure (2004)

Since 81st Academy Awards will be held this weekend, my entries for this 1-2 weeks will be focusing on & around films & movies. However they all will be in amirmukhtar ways...

National Treasure, a 2004 adventure movie starring Nicolas Cage about a search of worldwide lost treasure guarded by the Knights Templar & Freemason which leads to a invisible map at the back of US Declaration of Independence & the stealing of it. The film was very interesting & entertaining. It was a fun mixture of conspiracy theories, fictionalized twist of real life history & sort of like The Da Vinci Code style.

I remembered watching it in GSC Mid Valley on an evening just as I arrived in KL from KB. Damn... Couldn't even managed to reach my rental house in Pantai Dalam...

Among all the fun & pure entertainment, there were 2 lines that really caught my attention. One is when the protagonist reads a line from the Declaration of Independence:

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Still no idea?

In simple words:
If there's something wrong,
those who have the ability to take action
have the responsibility to take action.

The other line is near the end of the movie,
regarding The Founding Fathers of America believed that a government was too great for any one man to have, therefore the only solution is to give it to the people...

How noble words,

How appropriate are they with our current situations,

How I wish my entry will reach voters in Bukit Selambau & Bukit Gantang.

Anybody care to help?

Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen

This is my first attempt on film preview.

I'm not really a huge fan of Transformers but the robots in disguise have a special place in my history. 20 years ago, one of my first toys is actually a Decepticon, a gift from my uncle who was studying in Japan at that time.

Fast forward to 2007, a live action Transformers movie was the highest grossing movie in Malaysia. I'm one of the contributor...

This summer, the robots will return to big screen & I mean BIG 'coz it will also be in IMAX & in 3D. FYI, IMAX 3D is far more advance from Jaws 3D which you have to wear the cheap-ass red-green spectacles. It's like comparing a Cybertronian robot with an Earth robot.

Back to the film, this time Sam Witwicky discovers something about the origins of the Transformers and their history on Earth. The evil Decepticons need to capture him for information. The climactic battle takes place at the Giza Pyramid Complex, where a temple is located within. The film will show the Transformers who visited Egypt before the pyramids were built, and all heroes end up there because of the Decepticons' masterplan.

The teaser looked good & this film might be able to surpass it's predecessor.

Cool badguys will include The Fallen, who in Transformers universe is one of the original Transformers & the one responsible to divide the Transformers.

Another one is (or rather are) Constructicons, a group of construction vehicles Decepticons that can combine into the gigantic Devastator. If you have seen the teaser, the giant robot that Optimus Prime jumps off on it will only form the torso.

Believable rumors are Megatron is resurrected and a sex scene.



Don't try to fantasize a sex scene that involves the super-hot Megan Fox ok?

The scene will involve Optimus Prime himself.



OK, just kidding. Actually Mr Prime will also combine with another high class robot & seriously I hope nothing sexual between them.

I'm definitely looking forward for this movie however since the Executive Producer is Steven Spielberg & I'm still in Israel-boycotting mood, I might have to pass it or at least thinking twice before watching...

Sugar Crisis

Why are there too many crisis in our country?

Political crisis.

Constitutional crisis.

Economical crisis.

And now, sugar crisis.

Last weekend I went to Damansara Uptown Food Court for dinner. One of my friend ordered: "Makcik, teh o satu, kurang manis ye." (Untie, may i have a mug of less sugar tea O please?).

He ended up pouring his tea in my glass after i finished my drink bcoz it's too sweet - it could kill a single diabetic ant instantly.

Next morning, we went to a another warong for breakfast & he took a mug of plain water - it was readily available in a jug on the table.


WTF? The plain water also tasted sweet!

Quoting my friend's:

"What the hell is wrong with these people?!!!"

And in the news almost every night people complaining about the sugar shortage?

Pardon me, i think i'm having sugar rush.
