learn-nerds, deepavali and crying....

ohh man today had been very very tiring day... penat yang tahap tak larat.. i have not been this tired because of work for a very very long time.. im not bitching about work cause i had fun.. do not mistaken that but it was really really memenatkan ok.. ok ok i should tell what was it that i was working on just now that i tak larat like this.. i was a part of a pilot shoot and screening shoot for a mandarin version of "Mind Your Language".. yep it was fun cause i got to meet up with new people (there was this model from london who was also at the same time a Taiwanese actress) then there was people from the Chinese theater who was really awesome.. my old friend Osama and of course now international actor Mr Alvin Wong(im so proud of you bro) ..and a swedish model Marcus Bener.. the chemistry on set was just great and i am constantly amaze by ALvin cause he just never seem to stop inventing and coming up with new stuff as a comedian and as an actor.. well lets just cross our fingers and pray that this "macha" would give us wings for this.. insyallah.....
oh oh oh my BFF zeeka telah pun selamat ditunangkan.. congrats babes...

i realized something .. i tear up easily. i do.. ok tahu lar kan tak macho ngagis but then who cares about being all macho.. i rasa i memang kuat dan cepat tersentuh dan menangis.. tak lar yang bangsa meraung dan teresak esak.. dah kenapa nak mampus lar tue.. but then tear drops rolls down my cheeks easily.. semalam iklan deepavali yasmin ahmad yang sungguh brilliant.. hari ini hahhhh oprah's big give... ok tau larkan i ketinggalan zaman semua orang mesti dah tau pemenangnya tapi hello give me a break ok i dont have time for tv unless of course for TARA season 3..go ida.. go bernie.. ok dont get me started on that ok i can go on..huhhhhh speaking about TARA even masih kali kedua ida and tanya peluang untuk stay on i nangis... menghayat hati... ohh ok back to oprah's big give.. i think its such a wonderful idea and i gives all of us hope in such times cause there are still people out there that cares

and just by doing little stuffs it will make a difference.. anyways cayarlar to the winner.. i salute you... ok lar dah mengantuk
ohh before i forget HAPPY DEEPAVALI to everyone out there who is celebrating this triumph over evil and this pretty festival of lights.. dont drink and drive ya..

sesungguhnya baki zainal sayang kamu.....

im a man of color

i have been back for the past few days and my fellow friends who saw me knew that i have just been to a beach some where as i am back to being tan. but people who are not really close to me would give me remarks as "OMG your so dark".. "how to sell now".. "what happened?"
you see i believe that a man should have some color to his skin.. y? because i think if a person is too pale then he looks very sickly.. i mean fair enough if you were born pale like julian moore or ewan or who daniel cliff( they can never get a tan they would just turn red and burn like a lobster)
nice color

no no.. too pale

i feel that when a guy has a bit of color or shall i say tan, it says alot about him as a person. confident, worldly, out going and etc.. i know it sounds as if im stereotyping currently but thats just it.. some people goes to great extends to get a tan, some even pay big money to get a fake tan which i cant understand y, with the money spent on the fake spray tan might as well fly off to some beautiful beach cause with having low cost flight such as firefly and air asia its cheaper to go for these short holidays and get a tan rather than having to stand in a cubicle in those cheap paper undies being sprayed with color that would wash off after your 5th shower and above all it cost a bomb (my friend told me so)..

this is my current color i know bit too dark but i like

im happy with my current color.. cause i feel healthier, confident and raring to go.. most of all i feel sexy and beautiful hahahahahahaha.. i know i know one mans poison is the other mans medicine.. hahhhhh i hope this color is gonna last me for a month or so so at least i could save up some more and off again to another beach for some tanning session... im blessed life has been good.. thank you... aite peeps im going to bed now nite all.

p/s: thanks elly for inviting me to the open house, it gave me a chance to catch up with the guys.. muahhh miss all of you much..

sir i give you "happy ending"

with such a big buddha in the back ground well it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that i was in Thailand, phuket to be exact..
thanks to eventplus marketing and my abang alan yes, i had an brilliant time basking in the sun and experiencing an island that i have heard many mix reactions from different people who has visited the place.. i would have to say thou my first day there i wonder how could one fall in love with such a commercialized touristy island that was over populated with sex bars and tattoo parlors? yes guys that was my first impression of the island.. but then while i explored the island i realized that it had its own charm... one that only by mixing with the locals and exploring the nature that would make anybody fall in love with this pearl that lays on the andaman sea.. one person that i know off that has decided to live there with the man of her dreams is simone.. i was so happy to see her relaxed and finally being happy and feeling serene.. ben and her showed me a less touristy side of phuket that made me change my views on the island..thanks guys..simone and ben the lovely couple..

i guess im lucky to be able to see past all the massage parlors, gay bars and go-go shows.. cause theres soo much to see and do in phuket.. beautiful scenery, colorful wet markets, smaller islands, magnificent temples awaits you besides the normal high priced tourist traps..

the temple roof at wat cha long

even so its a "happy ending" that your looking for, dont forget to look beyond and experience this colorful island.. im sure i will return one day.. heck returning for just a full body massage is already a good reason..

allrite peeps enough bout thailand.. im going to bed now and shall be dreaming of that azure blue sea.. nite all

The Beautiful Wat Cha Long.. Phuket


i dedicate this post to ZEEKAAAAAAAAAAA..

i dont kow where to start

i just got back from the sunny island of phuket... and now i dont know where to start.. coz there seems to be many things on my mind that i would want to pen down... humm i think let me start with "P.I.H" the drama.. P.I.H stands for Phuket international hospital... yes yes.. its not a group tour to the hospital guys.. and no i was not admitted this time around.. ok let me begin at the start..
it was our last day there and we had our final land tour which was to go around phuket town and see the sights on land.. and all of the sudden shikin felt discomfort in her abdominal area.. thus cutting the story short we rushed her to the nearby hospital..

thats simon and me at the hospital.
after much communication break down, which until today i still cant understand as the hospital that we went to was called Phuket international hospital at the same time was also built specially for Farangs.. the amount of staff that could understand basic english was near to zero.. it was really frustrating cause here we have to be at the airport in the next 3 hours and yet they could not understand us. so here was poor shikin being wheeled over from one department to the other medical department.. but finally after few scans and 2 different doctors opinion (one that could understand and speak english) she was diagnosed with appendix yes she had to go into surgery within the next 3 hours or else.. well lets not go there..

no enter when red light is on..

well then of course the whole discussion, planning and call had to be done as to save poor shikins life..and yes although there was hesitance on the family side.. we made the final call and shikin then went in for surgery.. ( sebenarnya there is so much more i nak tulis tapi yelar kemungkinan ia akan mengaibkan orang lain so dari itu the juicy parts shall then be cut out of this entry)
cheryl comforting shikin (alar alar ER)

well shikin is now safely recovering in phuket and above all this i walk out learning something.. i guess i am really lucky to have my family and of course my dear friends (you know who you are) who i am sure would one way or the other drop everything and be by my side when i really need them by me.. thank you.. alhamdullilah syukur..

Raya, Raya and more Raya

finally im back after spending 6 days in JB. yes can you believe it? i think that has been the longest ever time i have spent in JB after moving up to KL 15 years ago. cewah macam tanggal lar pulak. raya this year is kinda like any other raya.. the spending and the eating and the merry making and of course the clawing opps did i say clawing okay that was not meant to be leaked out so i'll just stop at that... ok let the journey begin.

(thats me of course with my muse and mum telling herself that we should have just fly)

we started the journey with so much energy. the boys were all about how sempit it is sitting in the honda (yes yes i know i should get my truck already) while their little complains keep my brother awake behind the wheels, it kinda drove my mother up the wall.. while we were driving fatso of course had to complain that he was hungry so we had to stop in seremban to get him KFC

(thats smelly passing out after smelling fatso's lunch)

it was a really long drive since there was many cars heading down south. but we finally made it. we stop in Pontian at mak langs place for berbuka and by golly the spread was fantastic.. we were served ribs soup, satay, prawns and crab in chilly, and many different types of desert plus fresh home grown fruits.. it was like going for one of those buffets but only better and the best part it was free.. but then to redeem ourselves abg og and i helped pak lang with his pelita around the house ( jgn main main pak lang aku sekarang dah jadi imam masjid so giler busy tak lama lagi jadi YB lar tue.) hahahhaha.. with a full belly we headed off to jb.. the last day of puasa was a frenzy of shopping, airports, deco and saloon.. (ohh ohh before i forget i found this treasure in JB. its a saloon called PROSOM and they have baki zainals official thumbs up for service, workmanship, deco and i shall grant it best saloon in JB award.. its located in Jalan Serampang in Taman Pelangi. go and check it out if you guys are in JB. tak sia sia.. lain kali aku blog pasalnyo.).. (pagi pagi raya baki zainal beraya ditangga rumah aunty asmah bersama keluarga)

then came the said raya, 3 days of raya in jb had its ups and downs.. but at the end of the day i enjoyed it.. it was the coming together as a family putting aside differences and disagreements for that few days makes hari raya like other family orientated festivals special (nasib baik jb mempunyai a few starbucks yang telah menyelamatkan situasi and my sanity..). ohh Alan and Simon stopped by the house in jb on the 3rd day of Raya which was kinda sweet..( yg best tue when mama heard alan was coming sebeban nenas dia potong).
old relations were rekindled, new relations were formed... but i guess i came out of all this with better patients (trust me my patients was really being put to the test) but overall i would have to say i enjoyed it.. and now with the whole fiasco over i cant wait to be in full gear and force to start work again..

(mother and me in green, very eco friendly)

ok peeps im gonna sign off now.. you guys have another good 1 month of syawal (or what ever thats left of it) and yes i shall inform if there is an open house happening k.. chao all.
