Sheltered and protected from the big, bad world.
From all the wolves in the woods, the dark of the night and the monsters under the bed.
Here's a line from an old-time commercial - "I don't wanna grow up...I'm a Toys-R-Us kid"
I think I can grow up a bit more.
here's a line from the movie 'stuck on you' - "why deny deny deny? embrace!!"
3. among the giants
there i was, alone among the gentlemen. one of them my own father. the others, most i've called 'uncle' ever since, but now a couple are relegated to first-name basis at times. the dato' chairman asked me to take the floor. having them listen to me and my ideas, it was the first time in many years that i really felt like an equal in that particular situation. i stated the case. they listened. points debated, and we came to an agreement. a conclusion. more work after this.
it was nice having them giving me an honest pat on the back. made the effort really worthwhile.
here's a line from the movie 'night at the museum' - "some people are born great. others have greatness thrust upon them"
this is how these things happen, i suppose. along the course of my life, i'm more that type - the type that somehow get things thrust upon them rather than being the ones that chart and track new courses on their own. but does that mean what i do is less worthy in comparison? no! i don't think so!
4. the new candidate
yeah i've known that she's involved in politics, but just like that lah, so it still it amuses me a bit to look at that smiling face staring from the saturday newspaper, featuring the full-page interview about her nomination as the party's constituency candidate.
because the first time we met some months ago, we talked about harry potter and the cartoons that her 4-yr-old daughter loves, and the fact that she's been on diet. and whenever she was spoken about by her brother, it was often with candid remarks as a much beloved manja little sister.
anyways, are we all ready for the coming elections yet?
here's a line from that RTM song - "Marilah mari..kita mengundi.. jangan lupa kewajipan.. pada negara!"
