Just An Old Fashion Love Story

OK, foremost a confession: As Cikgu had noticed it, I had put up a posting last night about a story I MAY enter into a competition, but decided to take it down to give it more work. Further, the only part I have written was the ending and the entire story was without a title yet...then.

All entries for this competition is to be based on the development of Kuala Lumpur for the past 20 years, and though I have a sketch in my mind, I have yet to work out the on exact matter. I mean, it was only after maghrib last night I decided to begin on it. Then somehow this morning, I woke up with a song in my head which somehow tie in to the sketch I have. Hmm...maybe that's what all the senimans call 'ilham', huh? If so, then I may have found 2 already! Oops! Sigh...then again, I am not a seni-man.

Anyway, I was reminded about this song when I replied to a comment from Cikgu and have put it here for everyone's listening pleasure. An original presentation it may not be, but it is nonetheless, still as good. But mind you, for those who may not know the song already, there's 2 songs in the video and we are only concerned with the first.


ps. By the way, there's some new Oldies, Jazz and Rock songs up at Listenonly, do have a listen. Er...look, I mean do have a look :)

Oh my god, you surely bring back old memories. This song is so beautiful especially to an old-fashioned fellow like me. Thanks, thanks a lot.

No prob! Always happy to see a smile :)

Shah,
Wish you with the best of luck and hope the ilham will come nonstop until you finish the story.
I often go sleepless when I have a story brewing up in my head. Whatever the time I must put pen to paer just to note the storyline before I can go back to sleep.
Just think positive and ideas will flow in, easier said than done hahahaha.

Salam Pak Zawi,

Thank you, sir. InsyAllah, the ilham is already there, its just a matter of translating it into a story form, and I'm not good at all to mind mapping, except for what I have in my head. But thanks again :)

Salam Shah;

A confession to make: I've never heard this song before,but man...it sure is a very good song.

As for pak zawi's request for Angela, I'll second it.

Someone borrowed my CD(or was it that I misplaced it somewhere) and I only have the CD cover. So if its available at U tuib, pls put it at Listenonly.

Seni-man...adik beradik cicak-man,bat-man,spider-man ke tu? LOL!

Wa'alakumusalam Doc,

Oh! That took me by surprise! But I'm glad you took a liking to it.

Anyway Doc and Pak Zawi, the song requested is already up in the blog. However, the video presentation may not be to your liking. Still, especially for Angela, some may like it more! :)
