Aku masih terkenang pengalamanku menonton pementasan Dejavu awal tahun ini di Pusat Pelancongan Malaysia, dan bagaimana hampanya rasa apabila waktu pertama ke sana, tiket habis!

Seterusnya aku dimaklumkan untuk pementasan tersebut, memang sold out tiap-tiap malam. Dan hingga sekarang aku masih memikirkan, inikah petanda era kebangkitan semula teater berbahasa Melayu. Dejavu sahajakah begini, atau untuk yang lain-lain juga?

Apa-apa pun, bagiku nama-nama berikut - Fauziah Ahmad Daud, Syukor Yon dan Juhara Ayob, sudah memadai untuk seharusnya memanggil penggemar teater berbahasa Melayu (dan sepatutnya sesiapa sahaja yang menggemari pementasan teater) agar tidak melepaskan peluang menonton karya hebat Pak Ismail Kassan ini bernafas di ruang Istana Budaya.

Dah Dejavu?

[New source of joy in town]

Allow me to say....

I love you for reading this blog. All three of you.

Then there are also the things that I love at this job. And I can feel it loving me back.

At this point, I need to prioritize the things that I have in this life of mine, and I'm sorry that I can't satisfy everyone, really. I do wish I could.

Just got embroiled in my first ever office gossip. Office politics. Taken care of. Whew!

People may surprise you if you take the straight to the point approach rather than go around the bush. Suits me. Never was much good at beating bushes anyway.

Mixing professional assertion with social gestures can be kind to your blood pressure. Things get settled faster. How's the wife and kid, and have you finished the project costing due on 31st?

Some of the Kementerian chaps are rather cute. And the State company guys are not half bad either. Hahahaha.

The Village : As Lucius Hunt was lying there with the possibility of losing his life, I was thinking Erm. Joaquin Phoenix. Under that covers. What is he wearing.

And last but certainly not least,

Selamat Menyambut Ulangtahun Kemerdekaan Negara
Keranamu Malaysia!

Yours sincerely,

Hi. I am Ted, and I may be...

..a control freak case. At certain times.

I can function throughout the day on coffee alone if going out for lunch means leaving the desk and missing that call. No, I prefer to buy my own lunch, I have to know what I'm getting. Yes, even the toilet trip can wait. I want to take that call. I NEED to. It's important. Yes, someone else could do it, but... it's always better if i do it (or so I usually think).

I have trouble delegating tasks to others. I prefer to be the one doing it. Unless I am sure you can get all the instructions right, which halfway through I may decide that changes are needed so the results are better and I'll do it myself when you're done with it. I hate wasting time giving instructions if I can just do it myself. Unless I can be sure that it could be done by someone else just the way I want it.

I mull over my choice of words, worrying whether it will sound right, taking 5 minutes for that three-sentence email - though it's supposed to be semi-formal. Which addressing should I use? How friendly should it be? Would that be 'thanks', 'thank you', or a simple 'tq'? Should it be completely in Bahasa Malaysia, completely in English, or a rojak of both?

Up to this point, it has already taken me 10 minutes, 6 complete re-reads and 27 changes in choice of words to type out this post.

But I still think I am actually normal, really. Really.

It's now 13 minutes, 7 complete re-reads and 32 changes in choice of words. No, 33.

15 minutes later : 8 complete re-reads. 35 changes. I can be like that.

Note to self: take stick out of my *toot*

Do you have a spare notebook to sell?

Am thinking of getting a whole 'new' notebook for myself (yeah I know second hand is not really new but haha beggars shouldn't complain) so if you happen to have a working piece lying around and want to get rid of it, do email me at teddisini(at), and then we can become good friends aha ahah.

*I do so wish I have RM10,000, but I don't.*
