2014 ended with a dreadful flood on the east coast of Malaysia.

My dad’s home town was one of the affected area.

The house he grew up in almost had collapse.

 No words could ever described how he must felt.

Even I felt devastated seeing the house in such condition.

We grew up in this house to, my siblings, cousins and I.

Too many memories.

 As a nation, we were tested with the disappearance of MH370 and the unprecedented tragedy of MH17 and QZ8501.

My condolences goes out to all affected family and friends.

I hope that the mystery of MH370 will be resolve soon.

On the brighter side, we had three weddings this year.

They were born on the same year, and married on the same year too.

Except for my sister.

Mutant – X Men

“If you were one part human, two part something else – another animal, a plant, an inanimate object – what would the other two parts be?”

Mutants and Hybrids – Daily Prompts

 

My husband and I had a movie date last Saturday. We watched X Men: Days of Future Past. I must say, it was awesome. If I am a movie critique, I’ll give them 5 start for everything – graphic design, graphic effects, story line and etc. My husband had goosebumps while watching the movie, and that is a very good sign.

When I watch a movie, I always imagine myself to be part of the movie. How cool would it be to have super powers! If I have a Mutant Gen, I would like to be one part of Wolverine, one part of Phoenix and one part Human.

I adore Wolverine because of his animal keen sense, enhance physical capabilities and healing factors that allows him to recover from any wounds, toxin or diseases which slows down his aging process. As for Phoenix, she is able to read other’s mind (telepathic) and she can also control them without any physical contact (telekinetic). and then, prof. Xavier will come looking for me and recruit me to be one of his X Men team. How cool is that!

 

I Hope They’ll Understand

Who’s the last person you saw before reading this prompt? Whether a family member, a co-worker, or a total stranger, write a post about what that person is thinking right now.

He left house for work at 8.00 p.m. He must be feeling tired after countless days of lack of sleep. I feel bad for him. He need to work extra hard just to make us feel comfortable and secure. I’m so sorry honey, I promise you I’ll make use of myself and my certificates soon. If I could read his mind, he probably say:

My Prince Charming on our Engagement Day 3 years ago.

right now.

I stay up late last night, working on some projects that is due in a couple of days.

I managed to come home last night. At least I get to sleep on a comfy bed and a wife to hug.

But, it’ll be another long day today.

I will be spending the night at the office tonight.

No comfy bed or a wife to hug.

I feel bad for my son, I didn’t get to spend time with him for the past weeks.

This projects are killing me.

I feel bad for my wife, I didn’t get to take her out the past few weeks.

I hope they’ll understand. I am working hard to put food on the table, clothes to wear and a house to live in.

I hope they’ll understand. I am doing this to sustain the future.

I hope they’ll understand.

I wish that my grandfather was still alive. I was almost two years old when he passed away. My father told me that each time we had the chance to visit him, I’ll always asked him to carry me around for a stroll at a nearby playground. I don’t really have any memory of him. But I wish I do.

If he was still alive, he sure will give me a piece of his good advice. You see, I’m leaving on the edge for quite a while now. My life is a mess. I am happily married and blessed with a wonderful young boy. But, I am affraid that the happiness wont last long. I know that love is not everything in this world. You need to have both; money and love.

Dear love, do you know how smart you are? Well, I know that you are a hard working person, that will try her very best to do what ever she can to achieve her goals. But look at you now. What happen to you? Where is that high spirited girl that I know? Why do you end up at home? What happen in pursuing your ambition? I am sad to see you like this love. As if all of your motivation and determination had banished from your mind.

I know how you feel. I know that sometimes, it is difficult to change. But sometime change can make you a better person. Look at you now, you have no goals and you are stuck at zero. Get up love! I know you can. Go out there and be a part of something big. It’s ok to dream big, because when you dream big, you have a destination to go. I know you can love! You always do find your way. I will always pray that one day, you will make everyone that you know look up to you. Chin up girl! Go make your dream a reality!

I wish he was still alive so that he could say those words to me. I wish that he would take my hand and help me to get out of this mess. I could just wish. I miss you grandpa. I always do.

High School Never Ends

I did some ‘blog strolling’ this morning when I bump into Lhu Wen Kai ‘s blog. After reading few of his post, I came to realize that he’s not a she, but he is one of the brilliant man I’ve bump into. You could sense the honesty in his writing. The sarcasm makes it even more fun to read. You did a tremendous job man!

I was inspired by his post ‘Friendship and Graduation‘ that I decided to write about it. I’ve left school 11 years a go and let me tell you something, just like the song from Bowling For Soup, High School Never Ends!

 

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who‘s the best dressed and who‘s having sex,
Who‘s got the money, who gets the honeys,
Who‘s kinda cute and who‘s just a mess
And you still don’t have the right look
And you don’t have the right friends
Nothing changes but the faces, the names, and the trends
High school never ends

 

I must say, this is true. Because  for the past 11 years, the high school drama thing still exist. My high school (secondary school in Malaysia) was not as pretty as it seems. I was a new girl in school and I was having a little problem adjusting myself at first. I was not very happy with how my parents moved to our new home – they sent me away to my grandma’s house and stay with her until the school terms begins. In other words, I didn’t have the chance to say goodbye to all my friends back at my previous school. So, when the school term started, I was a little upset and down because I don’t know how to start over. So, I was labeled as the snobbish new girl from Subang Jaya (Subang Jaya is known for hipsters and stylish people were from) which is so opposite of me. I was brought up in a modest family. Even some of my classmates are more hipster then I was.

For the past 4 years in secondary school, my life was totally filled with bad memories. Just imagine, one day, a friend who you thought to be your best friend, come to you and say “I think you should change yourself, be more like what we want you to be”. I was devastated and my self-esteem dropped from that moment on. The worst part is when your so call best friend go to your boyfriend and say something bad behind your back. That really hurt, it still hurts until now. It was a lesson for me in not to trust people so much because you’ll end up hurting yourself.

I was lucky to have found them. They are my definition of best friends. They accept me for who I am and we always support each other in what ever we do. I love them.

Thank you again for the nominations. I’ll have another post on my nomination and questions for them. Enjoy!

About Me Part II

Nisamir is the combination of my name and the first man that I have ever love, and I will always love him forever, my father. I started to use this name since I left school. It was kind of cool, because most people combine their name with their boyfriend or spouse but I prefer to use my father’s name instead. It gives a more genuine feeling when you actually say it.

Malaysia is my home country, a country where I was born and brought up. I never once leave my country. Yes, I know it’s kind of lame but it is more to ‘never have the opportunity’ rather than ‘just love her country too much’.

Story of my life is not interesting as others, but it is definitely a roller coaster ride. True story. Every where I go, there will be trouble waiting at every corner. But, those are the challenges that I’d to face. Challenges that makes me grow as a person, care and acknowledge my surroundings and always appreciates those who really accept me as I am.

My hobbies keeps me distracted from those who does not matter, while my interest keeps those who matters close to me. I love them, and they will always be apart of my family, forever.
