Kiss of Rain

27 Jan

Let the rain kiss you

Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops

Let the rain sing you a lullaby

–Langston Hughes–


Oh who doesn’t like rain.  Yes, No?

Rain or Sunshine? Definitely rain, baby!

**************************************************************

Crap! It’s 5 p.m. I missed Professional Developement lecture today. I missed the (crappy) Sukan Divisi or whatever names being conjured up. Or did I NOT miss it since it has been raining??

The rainy day has been good to me!

The Carpenter’s “Rainy Days and Mondays” has been stalking my head the instant the raindrops started.

The soothing aroma of Nescafe captured my nostril and cheers to it!

The pleasant soft kiss of breezy air touching my skin like never before.

The quiet cozy atmosphere with dimly lit surrounding which spells S.L.E.E.P.

AND VOILA! Cheers to assignment which is due TOMORROW!

Prejudice Isn’t An Option

10 Jan

If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other cause for prejudice by noon — George Aiken


In light of the recent incident befalling Malaysia (here for more stories), it’s a denial if I said I wouldn’t mind at all. I do mind, yet I am not being prejudice and vindictively unforgiving. After all, whatever happens, I love my Muslim friends as well. That is a truth. An honest one.

Day 2. I was having a decent chat with a friend. He is a nice guy and a bubbly company, and on top of that, is agreeably good-looking! Halfway through, the hot topic was brought up out of the blue. A blurting out of an (innocent) sentence “I’m just afraid that you’re gonna set up a trap for me” caught me off guard. Am I that type of person to trap my Muslim friend to such extent when all I did say was “when you’re back in KK, let’s movie-and-food-hunting together!”?

He is afraid, I am too. But, I won’t let those bunch of people who did the shameful acts to get in the way of my befriending all people. I’ve come to realization when he blurted that sentence out, that there is no way I would stereotype a person just because of his faith. My answer is: No, I am not revengeful for what has happened. To say that I’m not the least angry and mad towards those act is a lie. Yes, I do feel angry for the bunch of people. The malicious ones only. I was glad he was glad I never intended to set him up. No way, he’s been good with me.

My point is, whoever our God is, and whatever words we use to describe our God, He never wants us to be in this confusing turmoil. Prejudice never is the answer. Prejudice never is the option. Even amongst our own creeds and beliefs, PREJUDICE creeps in unaware.

I only have one wish — I wish to live in peace with my fellow brothers and sisters of all races, creeds and colours. Nothing but a sincere truth.
