Balding is their genetic

“The 28-year-old prince's bald spot was first visible seven years ago when he turned 21 and his hair has continued to thin” - Daily Mail reports.

"It's genetically inherited, but it can come from both sides of the family," said dermatologist Dr. Doris Day of Lenox Hill Hospital. "Even if no one in the family has thinning hair, it can be in the genes and still just show up."

William takes after his father, Prince Charles and uncle, Prince Edward, where hair is concerned. It is genetic. The prince’s hair used to be so thick and fancy-able. His Royal Highness was more good looking during his younger times. Seriously. I stalked him when I was 14 years old. I know everything about him! I know about Kate Middleton since then. Later, I got bored about it and I stopped stalking. I even realized that his hair is different in recent pictures.

They will get marry tomorrow, watch this five hours wedding event on Ntv7, at 3pm if you have nothing to do. I really want to watch it, but I will be going to my aunt’s house. Her son is going to ijab kabul as well.

You jugde?

In one fine evening, a group of friends sit facing each other watching a Malay drama on telly…

Ros: Gosh, they shoot this in that university???
Ila: What’s wrong with that?
Ros: Don’t shoot film there, I hate seeing their prideful faces.
Ila: Who are you referring to??
Ros: The students lah! Look at them! Bajet cun je…
Ila: I will behave just like them when I know my face will be in the telly…
Ros: Yes, I would do the same. Look at them now, you don’t see? Some of them wear weird clothes and exaggerating hijab. That doesn’t make them look better they looked ‘over’ instead. The girls, mostly. Same, all of them…
Ila: We got our friends in there.
Ros: Our friends are not like them in the first place. They got culture shock. They change, you don’t think so?
Ila: Yes..true..
Ros: That’s why I hate them. I couldn’t help it. You know, the surrounding itself influenced those good students, changing them into somebody that has no religion. It saddens more when most of them are Malay… It surprises me after I looked at the pictures of my U**'s friend in her FB, she wore tight clothes, her hijab is exaggerating, she socialized a lot.. She wasn’t like that before! She put so many gambar perasan in her FB! Please…
Ila: I got friend there too, she took off her hijab. Changing herself into free-haired girl. Her mother didn’t say a word about it. She like her new lifestyle. I don’t know..
Ros: U**** should make compulsory to their students to wear hijab. All the sins are their responsibilities now.. I know this is not their decision that the students had become like that, but they should encourage, educate and preach their students to know Islam and respect Islam. This is..
Ila: I know…it is sad.. But, I must say you are a bit racist..hahahaha. This is not just happening in U***, it's everywhere even in UIA.
Ros: Weh..I’m not being racist! But I must agree, its everywhere. And, not all U***'s are bad..

p/s: Come on.. I’m not creating a ‘war’ here, I just feel like sharing.. Be open - minded. Those names are not real of course, as usual I created them. But, this conversation is for real. They talked about it and I am apart of it. I was either listening or talking, you guess it. =]

Kera di UIA

Semalam pergi rumah wan, saja nak teman dia kejap. Dia selalu merungut dia sunyi. Jumpa surat khabar kelmarin, cerita tentang kera jantan serang budak umur setahun dengan pengasuh dia. saya memang out-of-date Dasyat giler. Budak tu kena jahitan lebih kurang 10 kot. Kesian. Susah jugak duduk dekat dengan hutan ni.

Nak tahu satu cerita tak? Atirah pernah confront dengan kera. Banyak, bukan seekor. Kera memang comel, sangat hairy. Masa tu, saya baru balik dari beli makan malam, nak naik pergi bilik lah lepas tu. Kat situ ada seorang budak perempuan ni, dia macam tengah sembunyi, takut – takut nak jalan. Rupa – rupanya, depan blok kami ada sekawan kera. Kecik besar nenek moyang semua ada. Pelbagai saiz.

Saya kan suka dengan binatang ni. Jadi, saya fikir kera sama dengan kambing. Jerit je diaorang lari. Saya pun jerit lah dekat kera – kera tu, jerit sambil hentak – hentak kaki. Mula – mula saya jerit kat kera saiz kecil tu jer, tapi kera saiz besar ‘terasa’ pulak kita jerit kat dia. Dia dah melangkah ke hadapan, saya takut gila, jelingan kera tu sangat menyeramkan. Saya tak mahu lari, saya sangat ego nak larikan diri.

Dalam hati : Tadi kau tunjuk hebat sangat Atirah, lepas tu kau nak lari ker??

Saya pun toleh kebelakang jelah, badan ketar tapi tetap berjalan seperti biasa tanpa sebarang kelajuan. Dengan tawakal kepada Tuhan, saya tak kisah dah jikalau kera tadi lompat atas kepala atau baham saya. Rupa – rupanya, saya selamat. Kera tadi pun cool balik. Saya bersyukur bercampur terkesima kejap.


Dalam hati : Woah, hebat ahh. Orang tengok kau tak lari bila kera menghampiri. Fuh, cayalah!

Lepas dari kejadian tu, kawan saya pula kena kejar dengan kera bawah titi. Macam – macam cerita lah dengar pasal kera ni. Kera memang jahat dan liar. Dua minggu lepas hari isnin kot, kiosk mahallah Hafsah kena rompak dengan 7 ekor kera pelbagai saiz. Kera ni ambil roti, dan sangat menyakitkan hati, diorang makan inti roti tu jer! Roti tu bersepah kera – kera ni lempar ke tanah. Memang tak ada adab.

Tengok kera - kera ni, lepak kat asrama orang, tingkat 4, menceroboh suka hati, mengancam penduduk di blok situ, saya yang menyaksikan pun tak tahu nak buat apa, halau tak lari, asyik nak serang orang jer. Nasty gila kera ni. Time ni, kera tu buang ke bawah bakul pengepit baju orang bilik depan tu. Haish...

Depan kuliyyah pun menyibuk jer

Orang kata, kalau kera kejar, jangan lari. Ish, tapi siapa lah nak buat? Dah kena kejar lari lah. Saya tak tahu betul ke tak statement tu, tapi saya rasa macam betul je. Saya hampir kena kejar kera. Tapi saya tak lari kera tak kejar pun hehehe.

p/s: gambar - gambar tu saya tangkap sendiri lahh, tau la tak berapa jelas sangat pun =]

Sesungguhnya kerbau itu comel

Pernah tak fikir, yang kerbau tu sangat comel? Betul. Kerbau comel sebenarnya. Cuma kulit dia kasar je. Kulit tu bukan saja kasar, malah tebal. Dulu tengok Rachel Ray, dia bawa kawan dia wild-life buddy. Wild-life buddy tu kata kerbau hanya ada kat Malaysia, India, Vietnam je. Saya rasa macam kurang tepat je, tapi tak pe lah, yang penting Malaysia memang ada kerbau!

Kerbau tak boleh hidup kat tempat sejuk. Ini pakngah saya cakap. Dia kata kerbau mudah panas, dan dia kena berkubang. Kat tempat sejuk susah nak berkubang. Kerbau ni memang berat. Dah tu ganas jugak kadang – kadang. Tanduk kerbau pun orang ambik buat kraftangan, buat hiasan gantung di dinding dan buat pensil pun ada, untuk tulis khat tanduk kerbau.

Kerbau suka lepak dengan kawan – kawan dia. Kerbau sangat protective, sama dengan gajah lah. Daging kerbau boleh buat orang panas badan. Entah la betul ke tak, saya tak pernah makan pun. Kat Kedah, kadang – kadang orang bawak kerbau masuk dalam bendang, tolong bajak kot rasanya Tapi jarang lah, sekarang guna mesin harvester atau "kebota" taktau eja tu jer.
 Comelnya kerbau - kerbau tengah lepak nih

Nama kerbau dalam BM ni pun banyak digunakan di dalam peribahasa kita. Contohnya:
  • Masuk kandang kambing mengembek, masuk kandang kerbau menguak
  • Setinggi-tinggi terbang bangau, akhirnya hinggap di belakang kerbau juga
  • Seperti kerbau kepanasan, sepatutnya boleh diterima =D
  • Seperti kerbau (boleh juga lembu) dicucuk hidung
  • Seperti kerbau tersepit leher, dihela tanduk sudah panjang, dilalukan badan sudah besar.
  • Langau di ekor kerbau, debu di atas tunggul, dll

Susah betul nak cari gambar kerbau kat internet. Tulis ‘buffalo’ keluar macam – macam. Gambar selandang pun ada. Seladang tu bukan kerbau! Tulis ‘kerbau’ pun macam – macam gak keluar. Kerbau ni ada banyak nama ke dalam Bahasa Inggeris? Ada siapa tahu? Sini, bagitau Atirah okey.

Dead Time




It feels like they're all laughing at me.
Making dumb jokes while folks with no hope sit desperately waiting
Whispering to one another about the well-being of our cousins and brothers
While on the other side, the vibe is strictly business.

"You know, I went to the cottage last weekend,
And my dog Spencer did the absolute cutest thing ever"

Cooler talk, food for thought, we get caught and fools defend us
Tremendous, absolutely stupendous.
What a stupid system they have created for us.

The room is split up, guilty and black is one
White and in charge is the other one
Legal aid is the paid Harriet Tubman
Working for my kin negotiating freedom

"They'll offer five; we'll say three and settle for four"
I'm beginning to think that they have all done this before
The court room rises and sits back down
Friends introduce themselves as defense and the crown
Charges are read, laughing and smiling
The feds are the only thugs big enough to rock blue and red

Five counts of robbery, two counts of assault
Luckily the sixth count of robbery never really stuck
Mother is pacing, heart is beating out of her chest.
She hasn't seen her baby since the weekend before last
He said he didn't do it, but she doesn't know what to believe
The third time in three months, why does this only happen to we?

He looks like just any other Tyrone,
Clothes scruff with hair just begging to be combed
Translators translate legal jargon into his mother's tongue
Meaningless words that are designed to make my people seem dumb
But some paperwork is missing, so the lawyers don't know what to do
They suggest of recess but will reconvene at two,
Like we have nothing else better to do
Than sit around and wait for these monkeys in suits

The process gets tons of time, procedure gets tons of loot
Bureaucrats write the facts but give none to truth
Because the truth is, that crime pays very well
But those getting paid to judge now should be judged in hell
Punishment is a multibillion dollar industry
In the streets police help steal the peace
So who's the thief? Who defends the defenseless?
Charged for actions or accused for intentions
Don't put me on the stand, that's a waste of time
I fear no one but Allah, your scare tactics get denied
Look now you've made her cry, sons bail has been denied.
You're only making things worse by keeping him inside

When and why did lives become big business?
Because you can't be innocent and have zero cents
Now it's life imprisonment, before it was just the Lynch
God created mankind, but we decide life or death?
Are you kidding me?
Your democracy is like Swiss cheese
Full of holes and a whole heap of hypocrisy
So excuse me if I don't bow my head before your queen
I don't know that chick, and she definitely does not know me

p/s:  I personally just want to share this, I agreed with those phrases that I highlighted. Those phrases somehow make me feel inspired. Boonaa has an amazing talent, I like his work here. Do check him out!
