We have not always found comfort in killers.
We have not always found solace being rocked
in the bosoms of those who silently pray
and openly destroy.
No, not always have we mistaken mimicry for mastery
or pretending for knowing
or enslavement for freedom.
But across my memory—
across my memory marches millions—
bold, regal, resilient, confident—
unshackled feet stumping up spirits
to guide us through this fickle material world.
We like sun and moon folk,
universal souls praying our prayers,
singing our songs.
Eshu, Ogoun, Shango, Yemaja, Oshun, Obatala, Oya,
Damballah, Ayida Wedo, Loa, Nkongo, Olodumare and Yami.
We know all of you by name.
We are people of beginnings, of culture, of strength.
Not always have we given into the empty threats
and scare tactics of the powerless ones.
Not always have we allowed the blood of our sons and daughters
to color the streets while we’re walking asleep,
marching to the beat of that siren song.
They’re still wearing their sheets,
with nooses in reach,
showing their teeth and smiling, it seems.
But I hear in the breeze
in the rustle of the trees
and the dangling of the feet,
they say, please, don’t let them ever forget.
You see, not always have we suffered from amnesia.
Not always have we forgotten how to conjure up spirits,
ancestor wisdom,
fix up a mixture,
spiritual elixir,
ancient traditions.
We, like magicians,
god-like vision, we—
we are people of sight.
So, no, not always have we fallen
for this okie doke
or inhaled the hazardous smoke of the manipulators
or been satisfied with crumbs for meals
our hands have prepared.
Hughes said life for us ain’t been no crystal stair,
but at least the steps are there
to push us up higher,
teach us how to go beyond the destroyer’s disguises,
look them in the eyes and be able to see.
Because what’s surprising when you know the nature of a beast
and especially when they’ve shown the same face for centuries?
So you tell me,
what’s the difference between two sisters in New Orleans
shot point-blank in the back of the head,
and two women bound in their car in Baghdad?
Or government-sanctioned killings in Kenya,
and a sister held hostage in a house in Virginia?
Or poverty in Haiti, poverty in Jamaica,
rape in Rwanda or rape in Somalia?
A sweatshop in China or one in Guatemala?
Or small pox and blankets, syphilis and Tuskegee,
formaldehyde and FEMA, ethnic cleansing and Katrina?
I recall within a speech Dr. King made us aware,
he said injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.
So they can spare us their drama, huh?
We got the heart of them field working mamas.
We carry the torch of that ancestor fire.
So with every fiber that flutters in our being,
with every find that comes from our seeking,
with every hearing that comes from our listening,
and every sight that comes from our seeing,
we must be faithful, strategic, victorious and free.

BBW Book Sales. (^_^)

Assalamualaikum~~~ long time no post eh? hehe

ok, so for today i will share about my recent going to the BBW Books Sales.

you guys familiar with Big Bad Wolf Book Sales?
well, let me tell you this- it is the ultimate books-shopping experience that i`ve been to! (so far).
this once-a-year book sales offers books at 70-90% discount! imagine that and it is not used books okeyh!
this year, the event was hold on the 12-17th november at south city plaza and i got a chance to be there~ hehehe

so i went there from gombak and after 2 bus rides, one lrt ride and one ktm ride later, i arrived to this "heaven for booklovers". and actually went there alone because nobody wanted to accompany me. (T_T). wuwuwuwu. oh, and i went there on the first day and in the morning where the famous, most-coveted books were still there. most of titles by stephen king were already "cleaned" though, and it`s only an hour since the sales start, how crazy is that? but i was unfortunate enough to get 2 of his books- the stand, and skeleton crew which by the way, both was the last copy of the title.

here are some pictures :-

the sales! - look at all those beauties! the varieties and choices almost killed me. hhahah

my stash of books, i brought the green bag *was prepared coz i know my books would be heavy.

my beloved books! <3

i could die happy~

i honestly can say that the experience of going to the sale was to be compared to going to genting or vacation or something like that. hahaha. i mean the books were so cheap that the sales prepared boxes for the customers to put their books in and my stash of seventeen books were actually very little to be compared to those other crazy bookies! hahahaha.

you know what? i`m craving for next year BBW sales already! and i will prepare much much more money than this year which was RM 180 something. ahahaha.

hey, even if you`re not so much of a book person, you should at least come for there are a lot of books varieties -architecture, recipes, children books, political, history, and academic things like the dictionary i bought. and who knows that you would be able to gain interest in reading. i mean, reading is never bad right? hehehe :P

p/s-i don`t know why, but too much reading novels will always cause sleep disturbance to me.  i mean, continous images will appear in my mind during my sleep. is this normal? (>_<)

may Allah bless you always...

walaupon agak cliche, tp nak letak jgak puisi ni. huhuhu. -

Jika hari ini seorang Perdana Menteri berkuasa
Jika hari ini seorang Raja menaiki takhta
Jika hari ini seorang Presiden sebuah negara
Jika hari ini seorang ulama yang mulia
Jika hari ini seorang peguam menang bicara
Jika hari ini seorang penulis terkemuka
Jika hari ini siapa sahaja menjadi dewasa;
Sejarahnya dimulakan oleh seorang guru biasa
Dengan lembut sabarnya mengajar tulis-baca.

"We Eat Mystical Poetry"

today i`m gonna write about our class mystical poetry events that took place on 15th October 2010. this event was organised by my class, engl 1515 sec 3 for our continuous assessment mark(20%). so our team got the theme mystical poetry, (other class got romantic and beat poetry). best kan? hehehe. so what is mystical poetry actually? we kind of interpret it ourselves and came up with these sub themes-Birth, Life, Death, and Destination(the hereafter). and the characters were demons, angels, adulterers, illegitimate child, murderer, pain, memories, arrogance, and malakul maut(played by me, yours truly). hehehee. my group was in charged with Death, so, we acted a scene of sakaratulmaut of an arrogant man. so, that`s how i got the part- malakul maut. here`s some pictures of the night taken from my friends fb. hope they don`t mind. hehehehe.. ;). 
make-up time~ hehehe

aku sorang je tiba2 menyibuk kaler hitam. huahauhau
lovely classmates!

natijah make up itu tadi, credit to liya safura, hehehe

so, overall, alhamdulillah, the night was a success. several people even praise my performance. thanks to them :D. and also i felt honoured to be choosen for the performance. tq2. but of course, there`s some bad news, our lecturer said that our performance was a little off the theme :(. huk huk. but still she gives credit to the performance, so, hopefully she would not deduct too much marks of our group. huhuhu. but all in all, we are all the best! (^_^). best night ever! yeah!

Science of Quran.

this semester, i`m taking the subject the science of quran and i feel that i really like that subject.. :).

it`s so interesting and on one of the assignments, i really feel satisfied with my work and so, i`m going to publish it here:-

The Impacts of Neglecting the Study of Science of Quran

The study of Science of the Quran is vital and essential for Muslims. It is with Science of the Quran that we would be able to analyse, interpret and thus, appreciate the meaning of the Quran. It is a sad thing that our generation nowadays seemed to overlooked and unappreciative of this subject. The impacts of neglecting this study could be very serious towards the individuals and societies.

First of all, let us explore the impacts of neglecting this study towards individuals. Since this subject is essential in order for us to gain the ultimate knowledge of the Quran, the failure to learn it will make an individual distant towards the Quran and as a result fail to acknowledge the Quran as the guidance for Muslims. In the Quran chapter 2:38, it is stated as such:-

'We said: Get ye down all from here; and if, as is sure, there comes to you guidance from Me, whosoever follows My guidance on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve' (2:38).

From the above aya, it is proven how important the Quran is as our guidance. Those who do neglect the Science of the Quran will surely unable to grasp the understanding of the Quran and therefore are incapable of applying the wisdom in their daily lives. We could see how polluted and damaged the morality of our generation these days- adulteries, fornications, corruptions, and murders are so rampant that it seems that the world have gone backwards towards the uncivilised state it had once been. And for sure it is not an exaggeration to say that their hearts are far away from the true teachings of the Quran which could be obtained from the study of Sciences of Quran. 
Other than that, failure to learn the Science of Quran can also results in the misinterpretation of the meaning of the Quran. As the Quran was written in Arabic using an abstract language, it is easy for it meaning to be misinterpreted. Those, who read the direct translation without a tafsir may very well get a wrong idea of the intended, original meaning of the Quran and this is very dangerous as it can affect our aqidah. For example, we can observe in Malaysian legal event that shocked the country some years ago which is the Lina Joy case where a woman asked for a declaration of her infidelity from Islam to the high court. What`s this got to do with Science of the Quran was the arguments from the Quran that were posed by the plaintiff. The plaintiff used the following ayahs from the Quran to argue that to convert from Islam to other religions is allowed in Islam:-  

“Let there be no compulsion in religion” (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:256).

And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means

better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict 
wrong (and injury): but say, “We believe in the Revelation which has 
come down to us and in that which came down to you; our God and your God is One; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam).” (Surah Al ‘Ankabut: 29:46)

Those who believe (in the Qu’ran) and those who follow the Jewish
(scriptures), and the Christian and the Sabians, – any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Surah Al Baqarah: 2:62)

To take these ayahs and claimed that Islam allowed for a Muslim to convert to other religion, is clearly not acceptable as the ayahs were clearly taken out of context and have a deeper underlying meanings. For the first ayah, (2:256), this refers to the non-Muslim where it is said that we can`t force a non-Muslim to convert to Islam and clearly do not refer to Muslim converting to other religions. As for the second ayah,(29:46), this refers to the way for a Muslim to invite the “Ahlil Kitab” to Islam which is through a good way and the ayah do not exactly meant that “since the God of the Muslims and the Ahlil Kitab is the same, it is okay for us to worship either religion” like what had been understood by the plaintiff. The third ayah, (2:62), on the other hand does not refer to the general mankind; instead, it is a part of the story of the Jews where the story told of the past infidelity done by the Jews. The example mentioned shows how the Quran may be misinterpreted from its original meaning and therefore illustrates the great importance of studying the Sciences of Quran.

Neglecting the study of Science of Quran will also bring about negative consequences for the societies. In a society, the Quran is needed as a primary source of shariah and knowledge as was stated in the Quran:-

“You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD's revelations to you. Do not follow their wishes, and beware lest they divert you from some of GOD's revelations to you. If they turn away, then know that GOD wills to punish them for some of their sins. Indeed, many people are wicked. (5:49)

Based on the above ayah, it is a must that the Quran be placed as the highest level of authority in jurisprudence and knowledge in a society. But, it is a regrettable thing nowadays that our leader decides to build our jurisprudence based on the western values. And hence, matters that are explained in the Quran such as the principles of Munaqahat, or punishments for adulteries, thievery, murder and drinking alcohol are not being followed by the societies. And this subsequently affects the morality of the societies. For instance, baby-dumping by adulterers are widespread like a plague, thievery and murder are rampant in the societies, and matter of riba’ are taken lightly by banks and the Muslims can openly and easily buy and indulge alcoholic drinks. The Study of Science of Quran will convince its learners the importance of following Islamic jurisprudence. Since the punishments posed by the Quran on certain matters may seemed harsh and it is hard for people with “modern” way of thinking to accept it, the study of Science of Quran will shed some lights on the hikmah of the punishments and rules governed by the Quran. In return, this will encourage the implementations of rules based on our ultimate book of guidance, the Quran.

Based on the arguments mentioned above, it is clear the harmful and damaging consequences of neglecting Science of Quran as one of the studies in our daily lives. And hence, it is urgent that those involved, encourage and provide this wonderful branch of study to our societies so that they may get a better understanding of Quran. Better understanding of the Quran will also create a societies whose hearts are bound to the wonderful teachings of Quran.

Oh Great! I meet a Freak Today!

orang tua2 pesan, kalau jumpa orang yg tidak dikenali, jangan ikut.

so, i was just walking home from the cafe after terawih. and as i was walking down the path near the library while making some drama, you know, just fooling around- friend was pulling my hand and i was resisting him. and then, out of a sudden, there was this old Arab man who said that "u can`t pull him, his too fat."

wah! sesuka hati betul org tua ni kata aku gemuk~~ tapi, the way he said it- you know, the friendly-kind-of-way made me just like 'hahahaha, u`re a very funny old man'. (=_=!)

and that`s when it started. 

then, this funny old man decided to walk with us since our destination was the same way with ours. . btw, there was three of us and him. and then we talked. he was surprisingly fluent in Malay. and his from Jordan. and when i asked his name. he said that we should know his name. and i thought that he`s a little bit of psycho but, we just pushed the feeling away.

based on our conversation, he seemed to know a lot about the malays. he said that the malays were not friendly- very different from the arabs who he said would hugged and kissed among themselves even if they just knew each other for a very short time. and it was very rare for the malays to invite foreigners into their rooms. so, i thought that there was some truth in it. and all of a sudden, he said that his friends couldn`t meet him that night and he would like to go to our rooms.

since i was admittedly a little bit impressed by him and the conversation that we just had just now implied that the malays was not friendly, so i thought why not right? and  i invited him to my friends` room. so we talked and talked- about our courses, about unity of muslims, about our religious background and about himself. he claimed himself to be the experts of mathematics and religion. and he knew many languages too. "MasyaAllah" this man was great! i thought. oh, how naive was i. he was currently pursuing his PHD. hrmmm,

but the main thing that he said was that - he loved all muslims.. and he said that he was greatly saddened by how the malays treat him after he had helped them. he even said that he had met this poor student and he gave the student money, phone, and clothes. generous ain`t he? he even said that if we need any help, he would be willing to help, just said what you want, and i`ll gave it to you asap. and many others bla.. bla... bla... the one thing that he said was that - he liked us very much, and we liked him too but not as much as he liked us. i also found that he`s a very good speaker. e.g, he hold my friend`s hand and looked straight into his eyes.

we talked and talked and luckily, our senior, brother abd rahman, came in. as soon as he came in, i saw in his face that he` was very uncomfortable with the man. he, with stern voice called out one of my friend, and they were gone off the room. and later my other friend also went out. leaving me with him. that`s when i noticed something fishy about the man. he was saying something about how people who seemed pious like our senior was not actually a very good muslim. he said that our senior was judgmental and said bad things about him outside. i was thinking- earlier, he said that we should not judge people, so, why was he judging our senior?. hrmm. and after that, he asked me to call my friends because he wanted to said goodbye before he go. (he`s hasty all of a sudden)

so, i called, my friend came, and he gave us his e-mail and asked for one of my friend`s number. so we took and we gave. he even one to catch pictures together with us. wah, so sweet but also again, psycho of him rite? he also took a long time to say goodbye and gave us a lot of advice. and he went.

as soon as he was out, my friends quickly closed the door, locked it, teared the calligraphy that the arab man draw for him earlier, and of course delete the picture that we took with that man. why?

because it turned out that the man was really a psycho. T_T

brother rahman told us that a lot of a students had "suddenly" met him, and he came to their rooms too. and he was staying not a students nor a lecturer here as he claimed- he was staying in the musolla and mosque. and he had been staying here since last semester. and even was once asked to leave by the guard. but still, he was here, looking for victims for god-knows-what. some said that he was a wahabi, or syiah and was trying to spread some kind of dakyah here. meremang bulu roma aku tau!

come to think of it, it all make sense- he`s so generous and loving towards strangers- i don`t know if arabs is actually like that. and all his talks about religion things and he even asked about our religious background. great! i met a freak today! hahahaa. btw, i think that he`s good in psychology- he managed to make us let him into our room and we barely knew him, and we`re not the only one.

but, this is a very serious matter. what if some students gone astray because of him? nauzubillahiminzalik~ just hoping that he would never come to our room again! huhu

conclusion of the story- jangan ajak orang yang tak dikenali masuk bilik! T_T. orang macam ni berada di mana2. kawan2, sila berhati2 ye. huhuhu.

p/s- mujur brother rahman masuk just in time. nyesal delete gambar tadi, kalau x boleh la ltak sini. hehehe

of food and walking~

i have to walk many miles to class and it sucks. there`s buses, but apparently, brothers are not encouraged to board that bus. and apparently, it is considered not gentleman to board on buses full of sisters, hence, because i`m macho  , i`ll just walk. (cursing with every steps)... (T_T)... haahhaha *pathetic laughs..

i think that,
there`s too much food here and all my plans to lose weight will eventually be to no avail... hahahaha.. (T_T).. ramadhan is just around the corner, so, there`s still hope~ hrmm.

and about the people,
wah! so diverse here.. my roomates`re afghanis, and there are like bosnian, sri lankan, and even ugandan in my class. and outside my room, there`re like people talking of i-don`t-even-know-what languages. hehee. it actually give me opportunities to open my mind n learn about other culture and people and how they think. but, u know, i`am too unfriendly to do that. hahahaha

jauh di mata dekat di hati.


kalau dekat di mata, jauh di hati?

itu lebih sakit bukan?

11 days in IIUM.

sorry for the long absence, i haven`t registered for my wifi yet. huhu. sekarang tengah berblogging di library lima tingkat IIUM.. best la kat sini very the world class.. hehehe. sekarang hari2 pegi library bukak facebook.. hahaha.

facilities kat IIUM ni memang best- macam2 ada dekat sini- bank, cafeteria with varieties of food, post office, kedai mustika ratu pun ada (motif betul kedai mustika ratu ada kat sini).. hahaha. sekarang hidup aku dah stable sikit after my first damn hectic week. oh god, what a nightmare! walking aimlessly around the campus to get to my kulliyyah department to register my course and find my classes. like seriously, i had been walking around and around the campus that my feet hurt like hell after i arrived to my mahallah and this is all thanked to the lady who told me that the place i was looking for was at another building miles away. then, guess what? the place i was looking for was actually at that exact place i met that lady. (T_T)..

after that damned first day, things went back to a little better i might say. i managed to register all my course. that`s 15.5 credit hours. this sem, i`ll be learning- intro to masscom, poetry, intensive expository writing, arabic T_T, sciences of quran, and revelation as a source of knowledge. i think that poetry subject seemed to be very interesting. for the assessment, we are to perform a poem, analyses songs and the hightlight will probably be the poetry night that the whole class will have to organize. and plus, the lecturer for this subject, miss sheena was like very good in this subject. she somehow managed to bring the passion into poetry. can`t wait for her class! hehe.

anyway, i miss my friends so much, i felt so lonely here. i`ve to eat alone and walk anywhere alone. now i realised how hard to make friends with somebody is. huhuhu

but, i`ll survive, i know it!

p/s: tadi bangun lambat, 10 minit before the class start, dahla class dkat hujung dunia. kalau dkat uitm kuantan dulu, bangun 10 minit before class boleh consider awal lagi. lepas 4 tahun, hopefully boleh kurus. hhahahaa

Life of Pi.

i`ve decided that this book,life of pi by yann martel is definitely my favourite book of all time! and i totally recommend it to all. :D

now, let me tell you what makes this book so interesting. this book is about a 16-years-old boy named Piscine Molitor Patel (Pi) who managed to survive the 227 days in a lifeboat after his ship sunk. not interesting enough? well, he also had companions in the life boat- an orangutan, a zebra with, a hyena and of course a 450 lb bengal tiger!.

this book is divided into three parts- the first part told you the background of pi and his family, the second about pi struggle to survive the Atlantic ocean and the third part was the story after his survival and the conclusion which really amazed me.

 in addition, the theme of this book is not just about survival but also about faith. growing up in india, pi has created a fondness for religion. as a result, he decided to practice three religions- islam, christian and hindu - SIMULTANEOUSLY! there`s this funny scene when the three religious leader- the imaam, the priest and the pundit altogether met pi with his family at the park. that`s when pi`s polygamous practice of religion be known. it`s very funny really when the three leaders debated with each other about who`s religion was best.

this book which had been called the story that will make you believe in god is truly filled with wisdom and humor . it was even hailed as a modern classic and i truly believe that it deserved that title.

p.s: gosh! i truly loved this book, going to buy new copy for myself and re-read it. yo, take good care of my book yup? hehehe

Thursday, June 24, 2010

sungguh ganjil,
bagaimana bisa sekian lama,
aku tergiur
oleh yang bukan ENGKAU.

currently reading:


Kata Salsabila Fahim, ini cerita kecil,
cerita sederhana, tentang dia lari berteduh
di bangsal di puncak bukit
bersama Kamil dan Lam Ping Hai ketika hujan mula gerimis.

Kata aku, ini perkara besar ,
hal berteduh sementara duga datang mencuba bukan hal main-main.

Kata Teh Sofia, ya,
Kerja Tuhan siapa tahu ?

Kata aku, Tuhan akan menunjukkan
kepada yang mencari. Ya, asal kau mahu
mencari, Dia menunjukkan.

Apa kata kau ?

"I must say a word about fear. It is life's only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always ... so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don't, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you."
— Yann Martel (Life of Pi)

p/s:there`s nothing to fear but fear itself~~~

tag by nadia n enna.

first of all, thanks to nadia and enna for tagging me~~ first of all i want to tell you that i`m very honest in doing this tag ok. (sbnarnya habis aku delete gmbaar2 yg ptt jd no 8 tu) hahahahaha. dia x cakap pon xleh wat camtu, so didn`t break the rule lah.. hohoho. so here`s the tag:

1. go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder.
2. select the 8th photo in that folder.
3. post that photo with the story behind it
4. then challenge 8 blogging friend to do the same.

so, ladies and gentlemen here`s the pict! :

hohoho~~ in this pict: noni, izwani, zura n aina~~ this is the last outing that i went with them in kuantan. huhuhu. we went to the bookfare in megamall and we bought the seven-for-RM10 phone straps that izwani FORCED all of us to buy. hahahaha. sede molek ado 7 ore- noni, me, izwani, enna, riz, kak we and zura.. it was a sweet memories guy~~~~ :D

p/s: mls nak tag sape2! hehehe

the "death" of my ayah. huhu

after a long while of rest from blogging, i decided to write something today! heeee~ :D

ok, just now, my father just fetch me from work and as i was just entering the car, he said to me

"asraf, ada dgr tak berita ayoh mati accident?"

and i was like "huh??" cause you know, he was like obviously alive. only then did he told me that the news of his death had been widespread at the village. i heard that my auntie had cried that she almost fainted. and my father got a zillion of phone calls that he was tired explaining that he`s not dead yet.(btw, what`s up with calling people who you thought was dead anyway?). well actually, it turned out that it was the wrong person who has the same name as my father who died in an accident and somebody had been informing everyone thinking that it was my father.huhuhu.

thank god that it was not him cause i just cannot imagine if that really happen.

p/s: my second sister is in hospital right now, her water just broke- i`m going to get my first niece/nephew soon!!! happy~~~~ heeeeeee~~

Bicara Cinta. ;)

"Love is . . . Being happy for the other person when they are happy, Being sad for the person when they are sad, Being together in good times, And being together in bad times.

Love is . . . Being honest with yourself at all times, Being honest with the other person at all times, Telling, listening, respecting the truth, And never pretending.

Love is . . . An understanding so complete that you feel as if you are a part of the other person, Accepting the other person just the way they are, And not trying to change them to be something else.

Love is . . . The freedom to pursue your own desires while sharing your experiences with the other person, The growth of one individual alongside of and together with the growth of another individual.

Love is . . . The excitement of planning things together, The excitement of doing things together.
Love is . . . The fury of the storm, The calm in the rainbow.

Love is . . . Giving and taking in a daily situation, Being patient with each other's needs and desires.

Love is . . . Knowing that the other person will always be with you regardless of what happens, Missing the other person when they are away but remaining near in heart at all times.

p/s: my spirit are lift when i read this, :)

"to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you've held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again."

my job.

like the title said, i`m currently working at my most favourite place- BOOKSTORES!! hohoho. more specifically at syarikat muda osman in kb mall(visit me keyh?) heeeee. the work involved not many things actually,just the easy2 things- arrange books, put the price on the goods sold, customer service, photocopying and so on lah.. not so tiring (suitable with the low wages) :( . all the co-workers are also nice i think.

however, the thing i hate most is the temptation to buy the books there. already there are these two rare books that i want to read sooooo baaadddlllyyy!!- (sang pemimpi and tautan hati) but i just don`t have the money. there are only one copy left of sang pemimpi and 6 copies of tautan hati. i already hide the one and only copy of sang pemimpi (wait for me book!). i`m sure that this is wrong somehow. huhuhu. i`ve got to get these two books plus, "snow flowers and the secret fan" from the popular bookstore next door to SMO. -i`m terrified now, believe it or not- hhuhuhu

p/s: congrats to my father for the title that he get yesterday. what a success, proud of you! :)
