.. 社会.. ..


人们说..
人生路上总有许许多多的路人..
路人甲; 路人乙; 路人丙..
他们都只是生命里的过客..
都只是过眼云烟..
或许会在我们生命的一页留白..
也或许一点零碎的记忆也没留..
曾经也许..
我期许的不复存在..
我错了..
错在处理问题上不够细腻..
因为我再次让情感彻底的欺压在我理性上..
她的干脆利落我欣赏..
从她恨的人变朋友再变情人..
再从情人变朋友然后变她恨的人..
然后再变回朋友
此刻我的心是百感交集的..
原来结果答案在一早就已定案..
只是碍于误会和尴尬而划成了两个平行线..
曾经的邂逅不是虚幻一场..
因为原来自己还是那么在意..
在意的是这份得来不易的友谊..
认识她本来就已经历不少沧桑..
何况是现在..
从深爱转化成朋友的爱我是办得到的..
不当她恨的人..
因为那样会不明不白..
答案结果我总于懂了..
在意才会如此不是吗?
无限感概..
you are still the apple of my eye..


我说..
人总有一种病态..
一种难以言喻的病态..
因为这个社会病了..
所以人也病了..
病的是人的思考逻辑..
还是社会道德的趋向..
快乐其实很简单..
在世事的冲击下..
人不懂得当初的原则信念..
反之不容易满足现有的一切..
似乎人很难找回当初快乐的原因..
然而搬弄是非是小人寻找的快乐吗?
为何人会如此..
我想因为人病了..
悲观成了现今社会主流..
emo 悲伤这字眼就是最好证明..
情绪低落疯狂发泄后..
却找不到自己其实因为什么而抓狂..
无明火苗点着了..
悔不当初犯下的错..
持有的借口或理由也模糊了..
却还是那么迷茫..
我想这个社会的人病了..
an apple a day 也治愈不了吧..

Personally,
I do think he could really write.
he was a really good blogger.
Yes, was.
why "was"?
Did he quit blogging?
No, i dont think so.
Maybe the following article would be able to answer your question..

Three Utar students drown at waterfall, a fourth rescued

By IVAN LOH and CHAN LI LEEN


KAMPAR: A second tragedy has struck here, hardly a week after the Kuala Dipang bridge collapse took three young lives.

Three Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman undergraduates drowned after they were swept away by strong current at the Batu Berangkai waterfalls yesterday.

The dead have been identified as James Khor Wan Kai, 20; Yew Shy Gin, 19 and Yew Ghim Chnieh, 20.

A fourth student was rescued by a villager.

The four had gone to the picnic spot for a swim at about 5pm.

Three of them had gone into the water and the fourth student was about to follow them when a sudden gush of water caused him to tumble in.

A Kampar villager, who saw this, rushed over and pulled out the fourth student.

Perak executive councillor Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, who related the story to newsmen, said the survivor — 22-year-old second-year accountancy student — declined to speak to the press and did not want to be named.

He suffered cuts and bruises.

At about 9.40pm, nearby villagers found Khor’s body while Yew’s body was found at 11.10pm, one kilometre from where they went into the water.

Their bodies have been sent to the Kampar Hospital.

Businessman Syed Farudi Syed Samsuddin, who saw the three students being swept away by the strong current, said their hands and legs were bobbing in the water.

Syed Farudi, 41, from Mambang Diawan, said he could see that they were struggling.

“There was nothing I could do,” he said.

It happened so fast, he said, adding that it had been raining heavily before the incident occurred.

The Batu Berangkai picnic spot is 15km from where three pupils drowned after a suspension bridge collapsed over Sungai Kampar last Monday.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, you are right.
Hes not with us anymore.
So near yet so far.


and no,
hes not a friend of mine.
Hes a stranger to me,
so am I to him.

Say me weak,
say me sensitive,
say me ridiculous,
I was emotionally influenced by just reading
his blog and news.
Tears didnt shed but I did wet my eyes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Earlier this morning,
just the usual me,
I was joking around with the canteen Mak Cik,
in Malay,

"Said want to invite me to go for open house during Hari Raya,
what happened lar?"

My bright morning turned gloomy after that question,

"Sorry lar boi, mak cik didnt celebrate Hari Raya this year,
my mum is in critical condition,
shes suffering from severe back spine disease,
only 10% of her kidneys are left functioning..."

"Both kidneys?",I asked.

"yes, both...even doctors also said its almost time.. ",
*deep sigh with her tired looks*
"...pak cik & I have to visit her in hospital everyday"

"Must be real tiring huh..
In that case, just have to pray for miracle to happen then."
I was stunned, as I dont know what to say.

When I was just about to pay to pakcik,
the Makcik said,
"Its okay, dont take his money,
Iv promised to treat him for Hari Raya for a long time,"
she smiled.

She insisted to treat me for that,
even it was just an ordinary Rm1.50 nasi lemak,
it felt like as though I was having a plate of RM15 nasi lemak,
i felt like I was swallowing stones instead of rice.
I felt real bad,
my "joke" has just triggered someone's sadness,
on a beautiful,bright morning.
I was. however,
repaid with a free meal.


Hearing of almost death news early in the morning,
had already darken my mood by half.
Later in the day,
I came across to know about this drowned incident.
Everyday,
there are people dying,
we dont bother much,
we take things for granted,
everyday some people must die,
to keep the population on Earth balanced.
But, think of this,
what IF,
IF,
the person happens to be the one closest to you?
Think about that...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a few friends of mine have been expressing their condolances over this incident,
as they happened to be the victims' third degree friends.
I seriously feel for the victims.
The now-left-unattended blog,
which was once a hidden gem.

It was the same feeling I had years ago,
looking at one of my seniors's
facebook profile which was left unattended,
after he(ong tzong huat) passed away due to
some organs failure.

It was the same feeling I had years ago,
looking at my grandma's armed chair
being left unattended.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As Im comfortably
sitting & typing this right here right now,
while you are sitting in front of your PC,
reading this comfortably,
do remember,
the families and friends of the victims
would be crying their hearts out now,
or even have been collapsing several times
for not being able to accept the harsh reality.


Im not blogging this post to generate traffic;
its not whether you believe it or not,
its none of my problem,
as long as my heart knows it.
Im just sincerely expressing myself towards
Death
And at the same time,
express my condolence
to the victims of the unfortunate incidents.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some might say,
when a person is dead,
what can you do?
why are you making a big fuss about it?
Wait till you are in the victims' family members'/friends' shoes,
one day.
Unless you insist that
everyone around you are gonna live on forever.



As a blogger myself,
I, hereby,
express my condolence towards the family and friends of the victims,
even tho Im someone unknown.
"I feel for you, try to stay tough."
God(be it Jesus, Buddha or Allah),
One of Them must have need these talents
more than we do.
Its such a great lost to the blogsphere to lose
such a good writer.

But,
we should be proud of him as
God(s) has(have) promoted him
to write along with Him(Them)

Bros and sister from another parents,
Do Rest in Peace
Yew Shy Gin, 19 and
Yew Ghim Chnieh, 20.


I will end this post with a small passage written by James
which I really like it alot,

"其实男生也需要疼爱..
就像落寂后的蜡笔小新也需要时间来再次带给人们欢笑..
神奇的小叮当也需要时间来让蜡笔小新重拾欢笑..
只因自己也是同样的寂寞.."

Direct translation
"In fact, boys need love as much as girls do,
Even depressed Crayon Shin-chan
would need some time to once again bring laughter to the people..
And the magical Doraemon too has to give Crayon Shin-chan some time
to regain cheerful;
simply because Doraemon, himself,
is experiencing that feeling of loneliness."

Hi there. Just wanna say your writing is touching :)
I think James can feel that

aries_gal said...

a very nice post, Am i a friend of him? I'm not sure,

I never knew his name, but we know each other, we would say hi, waved and all when we met

It's a sad thing that he jsut leave like that, or perhaps, it might be a good thing that he will not need to suffer in this world, plus facing those harsh comments in his blog.

You too, are a great blogger..
