BERSIH 3.0-The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

There has been so much talking during the past 5-6 days regarding one of the biggest ever protest ever held in the country, Bersih 3.0. I was there as usual, supporting the cause of the protest and at the same time hoping to get some beautiful photos of the event. So here are some photos of the sit-in protest held last Saturday in Dataran Merdeka, the good photos of people from all walks of life sitting peacefully supporting the event, the bad S.O.P of the police in handling the protest, and the ugly scene of violence that marred during the protest. All in all I captured more than 700 photos of the event. Here are some of the photos captured during the sit-in protest, one of the biggest so far, calling for the government to reform the electoral machine in this country. Enjoy the photos.

Debu Hiroshima

will update my fotopages to the soonest as possible. for now here i am infront of Hiroshima A-Bomb Dome near the Hiroshima Memorial Park in Hiroshima, of course.
the title was first used by the novellist Othman Puteh on the novel, Debu Hiroshima, a story of how a Malay student studying in Hiroshima survived the painful history of the human-kind, the bombing of Hiroshima.
i do have so many photos to share in my fotopages right now, but i need to get to that sad-feeling again to be able to present it in better atmosphere, i mean, at the moment, i am a bit of overexcited here, still wandering around the city of Hiroshima, and yet ada hati nak update the sad story of the bombing, so i think let me relax dulu, and get the feeling again, then i will post those photos and the write-up here in the fp. so stay tuned guys

a beautiful durian orchard in Trong

one of my wish list if i ever to become a millionaire is to buy one piece of land in Trong, Perak.
a land with lots lots of durian trees in it; where i can take families and friends just to 'lepak' and enjoy the view and of course, enjoy the durian too.

and i saw one, somewhere in Trong, with a very beautiful scenery in it, and i tried to capture it nicely as what i saw with my eyes, so that i can share with you guys here in my fotopages.

when i first saw it with my eyes, i thought it was soo beautiful, it looks like a drawing, and i straight away stopped my car, and just walked inside the durian orchard without ever thought of asking the owner a permission to enter it. i was like hypnotized by the beauty of that orchard and i just grabbed the camera and walked straight inside the orchard and trying to recapture the beauty i saw in my eyes and transfer it inside my camera. and i think yess, i have it here. a beautiful durian orchard in Trong. enjoy yah

should i take her to see Mak or not?

sorry guys, no photos. its only some of my thoughts in writing this time around.

its always a dilemma to me whether should i take to see mum or not when it comes to a friend paying me a visit here in KL.

mum is here in Shah Alam, and last week, i got a friend visiting me from Jakarta, and i was like," should i take her to see mum or not".....though she always asked me how my mum looks like, and she always asks for me to take her to see my mum.

deep from the bottom of my heart, theres always a mixed feelings on this, i ve always thought when i got a friend coming to visit me, whether its a boy or a girl, i always have some kind of judgement, you know, like this guy/girl is good or bad or his dressing is cool enough for me to take him/her to see my mum.

well, my relationship with her is quite complicated and she came with the intentions to learn what is all about KL and Malaysia and you know what?
I think I ve ruined it. I ve ruined her trip here, and i should have taken her to my sisters house in KL and Shah Alam. both of my sisters have a good visual of what a normal family in Malaysia gonna looks like.
my sister and her husband teaches Quran every night for the kids near the house ssomewhere in Taman Dagang in Ampang, and it should be nice to show how in the middle of the bustling life of KL, there are still a Quran reading class available for the kids. and yessss, it should be a good experience for her to see all those things.

and my sister in Shah Alam too, is an expert in cooking in almost every dishes of Malay dishes, and a good Italian food like lasagna and mum was also in Shah Alam....i should have taken her to these 2 houses and experience how a normal life in KL gonna be like.
but what actually came on mind at that time was, i was feeling "is she the one?, is she worth for that experience to come to meet my mum, and see how my sisters and their family run their life, is she worth that kind of experience? what would my mum say if she knows that i am seeing an Indonesian girl? what she would be thinking about that?"-you see, how serabut my feelings was at that time of her visit? and end up i did ruined the trip.

its only the day after she left, i am back into a clearer state of mind. mind you, its only AFTER she left.
its only after she left, i called my mum and asked if my mum would be OK with the prospect of me, taking an Indonesian girl out and see her at one of my sisters house. is she gonna be OK with the prospect the girl might be my future wife or not. Is she gonna be oke or not with everything? and with all the silly questions came popping into my mind, i couldnt see things clearly at that time. you know that kind of silly questions......damnnnn...i HATE myself for thinking too much on unnecessary things. damnnnn

and the worst part you know what? my mum tak kisah pon. she didnt even bother about it. my mum said its up to me whether to go out with any girls that i want. its up to me, and its my choice. she always said that, "next time, if u have tamu from far away, be it a guy or a girl, just take them to me. no problem. she would not judge whether if the tamu is suitable for me or not. whether if the tamu is Indonesian or a Vietnamese. she wouldnt care. as long as i am happy.

and my sisters too would always welcome a tamu to the house, be it a special friend or a just a biasa one. she always welcomes anyone into the house.ahhhhhhhhhh........i really regret of what had happened during her visit here. i should have taken her there to those houses. not those mega shopping complexes in KL.not only KLCC. not only Bukit Bintang, but to experience what a normal Malaysian would do in the daily life. I should have known about that. but being a very fussy Ghazali, i could not help but to think all those silly questions of what people might think about it. i dont know since when must i worry about what people had on their mind? i really dont know since when. but what i know now is, I do really feel regret about it.

but yeah, life is always a learning process, and the experience i gained last week is what makes me a man today. i need to get back on my feet and carry on with my life. back to a normal life then Zali.
