It's quite funny that all over the world, "Allah" was used to describe God.
Yet in Malaysia, we're still quarreling over the use of the word. It almost
seem a taboo to use the word.
Its funny, how people think something (regardless if it is an object, service
or even a word) that is commonly used by only them, is theirs for the
(e.g the road in front of your house belongs to the government
not to park your dumb car and hog the rest of the road until it proves
difficult for ONE car to cross the road)
But hey! this is just a piece of my mind!

What is the meaning of life? Why were we made to experience hurt, anger, pain, sadness, disappointments. Whatever actions that we make, will earth be any different because of it? We are just but termites on the face of earth.
Sometimes even though we try so hard, we still don't achieve what we work so hard for; which frustrates me to no end. Why is there a need for a universe?
That's why I've thought of ending my life when life I thought was unbearable. Yet, when the thought occurs there's something deep within the petals of the heart pounds furiously at the chest. Insisting and fighting that we must live on! Maybe, our purpose in life is to search for that purpose in life. Maybe, we are put here on earth to polish our rough ends before we reunite with our maker? Just maybe, I could make a difference to the world? Or maybe, we are God's idea of a joke? Then hell, I'll make sure its a God Darn Good Joke!
Now, I'm at the very brink of adulthood. My mama bird is practically pushing and shoving me from the nest pecking and yapping all the way.
There will be many fork roads from thereon, will I be able to choose the best of either roads? Or will I just be stuck at the fork road, forever pondering which road is the better choice? So many questions, so many doubts, so many fears. Yet I think just maybe, just maybe I can make it.. because I have my friends and family who some are crazy enough to follow / guide me..
Thank God for my

"A marhasimani is someone who goes to the club, buys a woman a few beers, then with his friends, he would take that woman and go away and have sex with her," one young man told the BBC on the understanding of anonymity.
"We can't say it's gang rape because, OK, I know sometimes we have to drug the girl and everything, but it does not happen all the time," says another.
"Most of the time when it does happen, the girl is taking some drinks, but she is quite aware of what is happening."

So I sat an thought for quite a while.. and thank god that I am not born in Africa where 92% of woman have experienced some form of sexual assault before.
Children as young as 14 are performing sexual assaults to children as young as 8. The family of the rape victim then boycotts the victim because the small little girl has brought about disgrace to their family. The young little girl of eight who don't know how big the world is, probably haven't even mastered the mathematics table yet, probably don't even understand why is the family abandoning her. What is the world coming to now?
I implore to all the people out there, teach your children the right from wrong. If you don't know, ask, ask and ask or better find out through the internet or if you don't have internet...
Touch your heart.. will you want this to happen to you or your children?
if the answer is a NO!!!! Do Something!! since they can't speak for themselves.. I urge you people who have a voice to speak for them!
