Geram!

Hmm...its one of those days when I can't figure the equivalent of a Malay word in English. It can't be seething mad, as depending on the usage, 'geram' can also be for something adorable like in a cute baby or...like the way I put it to some lady friends who utter the word in reference to that cakapaje guy, "Kalau geram, peluklah!". Off course, they never do. Rather unfortunate for me though as its been a very long time since I had a good hug by a lady. Last I remember, I was about 10 years old when one did.

Anyway, the 'geram' I mention here is in context of the price hike protest tomorrow, organised by Protes. As most would have known by now, the venue has been changed to the MPPJ Stadium in Kelana Jaya. And though it might be late of me to put it here, GERAMM, the Gerakan Rakyat Anti Manipulasi Minyak (http://www.geramm.org/v1/) has begun their On-line Petition to protest against the price hike. If you are interested, kindly visit their page and sign the petition.
(Update 10:54pm): Please visit and read My Malaysiaku for and interesting article on petrol.

On another note, I wonder how many of my friends remember the song below, which unfortunately, is in a karaoke video format.

As far as I am concerned, GERAM is too mild a word to describe how I feel right now. No, not because no one wants to give me a hug or anything to that effect. Lets just say I am feeling the GERAMEST I ever felt in my life.

Bro' jangan geram-geram. I wish I was there at the Kelana Jaya Stadium. Make sure you blog it ok?

Speaking of geram, fear not bro'. There will be a lady down the line who will hug you. Tapi only lepas sign shariah-compliant cerificate laa.. :) Amin.

Salam Shah

I might use the word 'frustration' maybe, or 'hopeless' or whatever...

Amal jariah? Hehe...I really don't know, but thanks anyway :)
