Running amok, sometimes referred to as simply amok (also spelled amuck or amuk), is derived from the Malay/Indonesian/Filipino word amuk, meaning "mad with rage" (uncontrollable rage).

The word was in use in India during the British Empire, originally to describe an elephant gone mad, separated from its herd, running wild and causing devastation. The word was made popular by the colonial tales of Rudyard Kipling.

Although commonly used in a colloquial and less-violent sense, the phrase is particularly associated with a specific sociopathic culture-bound syndrome in Malaysian culture. In a typical case of running amok, a male who has shown no previous sign of anger or any inclination to violence will acquire a weapon and, in a sudden frenzy, will attempt to kill or seriously injure anyone he encounters. Amok episodes of this kind normally end with the attacker being killed by bystanders, or committing suicide.

Every time I had my mind set onto something, His test arrived and I failed to get through those. Sometimes, I wonder… Will I ever be successful? Will I ever be rich? Sigh… I don’t know and really have no idea about this. Deep in my heart I know, one day I will get and be somewhere ‘up’ there but then again, I heard voices that say I will just be like this forever. Aaggghhhhhh!!!

I don’t think I’m lazy but I know I can be if I want to. I think I’m very ambitious, have a lot of ideas, some might work but some is just a plain silly trick to put a smile on my own face. I’m so blessed that I am creative, in many way. I can diversify and be something that I never really imagine doing it! And I’m stating the obvious here that I am beautiful, smart, funny, creative and multi-talented like everybody told me. Not one, two or three person had said that but many! Almost every person that I’ve met.

I don’t do this often, I mean boasting about myself, as I’m pretty down-to-earth kind of person. I mean when it comes to me I rather people find out themselves. Maybe due to low self esteem, lack of self confident and being insecure after the big hit and I have fallen pretty bad this time.

OK! Let’s get back to what I’m trying to say today. About my career, goals and achievement. I know specifically what I want in my life, not too specific but in every details and angle. Is good or bad? I don’t know. Some might say its good cuz you know what are you aiming for and some might say its bad cuz you might close or slip other opportunity that comes to you along the way. To me it depends…

Lemme share the story about me, my career, my so-called “best-friend” and my life. Read more here.

i just don't know what to think now. he's never there when i need him. i should move on and i am moving on... i never have luck in this department. maybe i am meant to be alone, to face everything by myself, cheer up everybody at any time but no one fo me. i'm just tired being strong. i'm tired putting on plastic smiles all the time. i'm tired pretending all ok.

Shadows fill an empty heart as love is fading,
From all the things that we are but are not saying.
Can we see beyond the scars and make it to the dawn?

Change the colors of the sky and open up to,
The ways you made me feel alive, the ways I loved you.
For all the things that never died to make it through the night.

The sun is breaking in your eyes tTo start a new day.
This broken heart can still survive with a touch of your grace.
Shadows fade into the light, I am by your side,
Where love will find you.

What about now? What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love had never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late...

What about now? now that we're here,
Now that we've come this far, just hold on.
There is nothing to fear for I am right beside you.
For all my life, I am yours.

An allusion is a literary device that stimulates ideas, associations, and extra information in the reader's mind with only a word or two. Allusion means 'reference'. It relies on the reader being able to understand the allusion and being familiar with all of the meaning hidden behind the words.

Allusions in writing help the reader to visualize what's happening by evoking a mental picture. But the reader must be aware of the allusion and must be familiar with what it alludes to.

In general, the use of allusions by an author shows an expectation that the reader is familiar with the references made, otherwise the effect is lost. A piece of writing with many allusions (some of which may be very obscure) will be very rich with evoked images, but will do nothing for a reader who is not well-read.

"Littlest Things"

Sometimes I find myself sittin' back and reminiscing
Especially when I have to watch other people kissin'
And I remember when you started callin' me your miss's
All the play fightin', all the flirtatious disses
I'd tell you sad stories about my childhood
I don't why I trusted you but I knew that I could
We'd spend the whole weekend lying in our own dirt
I was just so happy in your boxers and your t-shirt

Dreams, Dreams
Of when we had just started things
Dreams of you and me
It seems, It seems
That I can't shake those memories
I wonder if you have the same dreams too.

The littlest things that take me there
I know it sounds lame but its so true
I know its not right, but it seems unfair
That the things are reminding me of you
Sometimes I wish we could just pretend
Even if only for one weekend
So come on, Tell me
Is this the end?

the first time that you introduced me to your friends
and you could tell I was nervous, so you held my hand
when I was feeling down, you made that face you do
There's no one in the world that could replace you

at first, i almost repainted this piece cuz this is not what i have in mind. been sitting on my easel for quite sometimes. until few of my friend said 'this is new style, different and nice' and i continue painted it until one day, i have to come to my sense that 'this is not bad'...

and this is the result, many of them who has seen it before and likes it, now loves it! especially TT, who constantly in my mind when i did this piece. i kinda like it too just that, it is not really up to my personal self satisfaction but i'm ok with it. surprisingly, i'm not the only one cuz my lil bro also, didn't really fancy it.

but then again, beauty lies in the eye of the beholders. so, enjoy!


"Shame For You"

I've been thinking that you've crossed the line,
if you disagree well that will be just fine,
cos you waste my time and waste my money
and your not too cool and your not so funny!
Oh my gosh you must be joking me
if you think that you'll be poking me.

Don't take me on no, no
Don't take me on
Shattered the lie but you think I don't already know,
Don't try to deny cos my fuse is ready to blow
Its your turn to learn I think that you know where to go
It's a shame, shame, shame for you

Please don't come around and knock on my door
cos I don't want to have to pick you up of the floor,
when you ask if we can still be lovers,
I'll have to introduce my brothers,
Think that they could teach you a lesson or two,
By the time they've finished you'll be black and blue
You'll be crying like a baby,
A sea of tears they'll call the navy in.

And i just can't help from letting myself streaming with those water at my windows.
It's a nice feeling.

- Umbrella by Rihanna -

No clouds in my storms
Let it rain, I hydroplane in the bank
Coming down with the Dow Jones
When the clouds come we gone, we Rocafella
She fly higher than weather
And G5’s are better, You know me,
An anticipation, for precipitation. Stacked chips for the rainy day
Jay, Rain Man is back with little Ms. Sunshine
Rihanna where you at?

You have my heart and we'll never be worlds apart
May be in magazines but you'll still be my star
Baby cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because

When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
Under my umbrella

These fancy things, will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for Infinity
When the war has took it's part
When the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
Because

You can run into my arms
It's okay don't be alarmed
Come into me
There's no distance in between our love
So go on and let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because

It's raining
Ooh baby it's raining
Baby come into me
Come into me
It's raining
Oh baby it's raining
