How I wish there were extra 24 hours for each of the remaining 14 days. Kot la aku boleh sempat expedite lagi the things I've yet to start, or even to accomplish what I've aimed for in 2008.
Truth? I'm not ready to leave the 'half-past 30' mark. I am still in denial that age is catching up real fast and yet I still have a lot to do.
Umi Ayah will be in their 60s next year, and that, too, is too much for me to bear. I want and still need them to be forever young and energetic.
Sigh. I haven't done a lot, you know. I haven't done a lot. At least not for them. Sigh.
And you know how these days life's becoming so... brief. One moment you're well, kicking others at their butts, hurting, forgiving...the next moment you're gone.
Al-Fatihah, to abg Mat Zahari's newly-wed son & daughter-in-law, who succumbed to their Friday's injuries on Monday and Saturday respectively. Abg Mat is Suara Keadilan's News Editor. Semoga Allah memberi kekuatan ke Abg Mat sekeluarga untuk mengharungi saat-saat getir begini...
Syukree was one of SK's most dedicated staff/journalist before he got sick earlier last year. News about his passing over here. A very nice, kind-hearted, darling young man, who had, to my surprise and sadness, turned into someone bitter and spiteful when I last saw him up and about at the recent Congress.
But, two days ago dia datang ke pejabat Abang, tunggu Abang di pintu untuk minta maaf for his slanderous remarks over SK staffs the past month, particularly to Abang. It was plastered all over his blog which really hurt a lot of people at the SK office (he had closed down the long-running blog since last week, me thinks).
Abang being Abang, forgave him, knowing he's been ill. Some of his ex-colleagues and friends still refused to forgive, though.
And at 10.30 this morning, Abang received a phone call from Syukree's brother regarding the shocking news.
I hope by now people have sincerely forgiven him, and remember his old self rather than the ill, spiteful one.
Coz that's how you want to be remembered, you know. The good, kind and lovely side of you, which I believe was what Syukree was till the end. And Syukree was barely 25, I think.
He could've done more great, great things in life. Tapi Allah lagi sayangkan dia, and saves him from further destruction...
May you finally rest in peace...
Esok pagi is my Paper Umum, taken the 3rd time within a year. Not sure if I'm more prepared this time round. Boy I do need some luck nevertheless. *sakit perut*
