Growing Up Aje

I was reading through some of my old postings. Not for any reason, but that I found myself different than when I was first forced into the blogging world. Can't explain it as well as I would like to, but I guess when you add this and that of life, then yes, I think I have totally deviated.

Let's see now, there was the GE12, and the BERSIH 10-11 March before that; the antics of some goons and their followers who have been insisting to the world that they, and only they, have right to steer this country to where ever they think Malaysia ought to be (forgetting that for the past 22years and the 35 before, we were somehow in a much better place without them); the 6 long years of sending news each night except for holidays (it got so that now I have developed a phobia just to open my working emails!); the unwarrented attention I have been getting from some authorities; the medical attention I have not been able to seek (can't seem to find the right medical personnel, it seems. Tak serasi, as the Malays would put it); and about a million and one more reasons. Well, that last bit maybe a bit of an exeggeration, but...

Anyway, while reading through, it dawned upon me that I have unwillingly and much to my quiet protest, grown to be more serious in my outlook! That, is a very drastic change for some who likes to talk only, wouldn't one agree? I mean, at 46, I suddenly find myself a grown-up man! Unthinkable, but true. And after going through a self-examination (wish a Doc could do that to me. A lady Doc, mind you), it then cross my mind that I need to go back to where I was, and thus, the need to get a new blog just to write whatever the mind pleases (can't do it here for reasons told in the the blog), leaving this blog only for matters which concern others in a more serious matter and manner.

The new blog, Personal, will be like its namesake, more to personal matters. And, as the url would most implicitly suggest, there the mind would run free. A mind, or a guy, would certainly need to do so in a world that has really gone mad. Also, as mentioned but quite the opposite of it, at 46, I do find the need to go crazy every now and then.

Shah, go and enjoy yourself. Life is to be enjoyed, to the fullest. There are so many things that you could do on planet earth to enjoy life. Not using it is a great lost to yourself. Make it colorful as possible for we go on that path only once on that journey of life.

I have a colorful life and continue to make it as colorful all the time. Enjoy.

Have a nice day.

Write because you enjoy writing. Pleasing yourself is easier than trying to please others. As for the messages, just remember what Brendan Behan said:
"Message? What message? Do you think I am a blardy postman?"

Salam!

Salam Cikgu,

I, have a heart? Now, that's very kind of you. For a moment, I thought its been ripped out of me quite like those victims in Aztecs and Inca's sacrificial ceremonies. Hmm...which, gives thought for a name change and an entry ;)
