The girl is down with a fever...just got the idea of doing this just by looking at her...

Quote:
OH, WHY YOU LOOK SO SAD?
TEARS ARE IN YOUR EYES
COME ON AND COME TO ME NOW
DON'T BE ASHAMED TO CRY
LET ME SEE YOU THROUGH
'CAUSE I'VE SEEN THE DARK SIDE TOO
WHEN THE NIGHT FALLS ON YOU
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
NOTHING YOU CONFESS
COULD MAKE ME LOVE YOU LESS


I'LL STAND BY YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
WON'T LET NOBODY HURT YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU


SO IF YOU'RE MAD, GET MAD
DON'T HOLD IT ALL INSIDE
COME ON AND TALK TO ME NOW
HEY, WHAT YOU GOT TO HIDE?
I GET ANGRY TOO
WELL I'M A LOT LIKE YOU
WHEN YOU'RE STANDING AT THE CROSSROADS
AND DON'T KNOW WHICH PATH TO CHOOSE
LET ME COME ALONG
'CAUSE EVEN IF YOU'RE WRONG


I'LL STAND BY YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
WON'T LET NOBODY HURT YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
TAKE ME IN, INTO YOUR DARKEST HOUR
AND I'LL NEVER DESERT YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU


AND WHEN...
WHEN THE NIGHT FALLS ON YOU, BABY
YOU'RE FEELING ALL ALONE
YOU WON'T BE ON YOUR OWN


I'LL STAND BY YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
WON'T LET NOBODY HURT YOU


I'LL STAND BY YOU
TAKE ME IN, INTO YOUR DARKEST HOUR
AND I'LL NEVER DESERT YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
WON'T LET NOBODY HURT YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU
WON'T LET NOBODY HURT YOU
I'LL STAND BY YOU

The Window Series

 
 
 
View all 6 photos...

Ok..ok...I like windows. This may sound kind of weird but I always like to look at building windows as possible subjects. Not all windows really, as you can hardly find modern buildings with interesting looking windows. Even if you can find one, they are always out of reach.

Perhaps, it is not wrong to assume that any old building in any part of the world will share similar features and characteristics in terms of interesting looking windows, with intricate wooden carvings, beautifully-designed and other distinguish features.

You just can't help but imagine how the occupants must have behaved everytime they opened these windows to let in the sun's morning ray. How their eyes must have been greeted by a wide spectrum of daily activities. How wonderful and colourful it must have been back in those days. And how those in the streets must have looked up at these buildings in envy.

Looking through a window is more than just that. It can be likened to looking through a window to understand our past. It could also be a window to the future, to see where we are heading and if we have strayed from our course.

I think I am getting to melodramatic on this sunny Saturday morning...

Faces Of Melaka VI - Border Crossing

One Of The Main Sundry Shops
Ageing
A Row Of Wooden Buildings
View all 8 photos...
Perhaps one of the towns that not many know of is Sungai Rambai. Sungai Rambai, which is located just at the border of the states of Melaka and Johor is just a small town, with many of its main buildings and activities being based along the Melaka-Muar trunk road. It is along this stretch of main road that you will find most of the town's buildings. The buildings are typical of what you will find in towns in Melaka and Malaysia, a mixture of both new and ageing wooden buildings. For comparison sake, you can say that Sungai Rambai is similar to a western cowboy town in wild wild west. Only difference is that...there is no gun-totting chap looking for a duel here.

Sungai Rambai can be considered as one of the main southern entry points into Melaka due to its proximity with Muar, which is just a few kilometers away. On weekends and public holidays, this town can be quite busy with those from Johor and Singapore making their way into Melaka.

On any other day, the pace here is kind of slow, with people having ample time to enjoy their surroundings apart from smiling and saying hello to others, something we hardly ever encounter in a major city elsewhere. This town is surrounded by typical Malay villages, with farming being the major economic activity.

This town may not offer much to a visitor, but if you like to take it easy and enjoy an unhurried pace, then this is a place for you.

For The Children

Quote:
I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us of how we used to be
Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me
I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail...If I succeed
At least I live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all
And if by chance that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

Faces Of Melaka V - Home Of Ikan Bakar (Grilled Fish)

The Heart Of Umbai Town
A Traditional Malay House
Row Of Wooden Shophouses
View all 6 photos...
To those familiar with Melaka, the mere mention of the name Umbai will definately brings ikan bakar (or grilled fish) into mind. The name of this small town, known as Umbai, has indeed become a well-known name among Malaysians, and to some extends Singaporeans as well, just because of ikan bakar.

Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise for Umbai, as other than ikan bakar, there is virtually nothing else which could interest visitors. A first timer to this part of Melaka will definately find it difficult to believe that this is the Umbai which is popular for its ikan bakar just by looking at its town centre. There is no Seven Eleven...McDonald's...KFC...or even modern shopping centres here. There are just rows of old and ageing wooden shophouses, all located along the main road. On top of that, there is only one petrol station here.

However, to see why Umbai is such a highly rated town, you need to head to the coastal area, where most of the ikan bakar stalls are located. Apart from fish, you can also get a wide variety of seafood, all fresh from the sea. Marinated with spices, this fish are grilled over charcoal fire.

Man...writing this is already making me hungry...
