Return To Civilisation…

And so, my 2-weeks long reservist training has finally come to an end. Sorry it took me more than a week to type this out as I was down with viral flu and the home pc crashed. Funny how all of us who went through the reservist, felt what a drag it was when we were going through the motions, yet when we think back, time went by in a blink of an eye. I enjoyed my three days outfield in the deployment areas. Not only cos it rained throughout from Wednesday till Thursday evening, which scuppered our activities and resulted in us staying indoors in our vehicles, but also because I was “promoted” to “Platoon Commander” when the other officers had to embark to another deployment area.

Taking charge of a platoon is not an easy task. You have the thickheads and the stubborn ones to contend with. But I took it all in my stride. Whatever things that needed to be done, I joined in with the men. Cos an officer will never receive the respect from his men, without him joining in the fray. I think I did enough to cajole the men on and earned their trust out in the fields. All I can say is that, I’m just glad that I’ve gotten another one of those in-camps out of the way till 2008.

I’m so thankful to Almighty God for showing me the identity of the person who spread lies about my wife last Ramadhan. Of late, he went so low as to use the nick Hafeez Glamour gave me in his book (“Sang Pendita“) and hit out at my wife, who has never done anything malicious to anyone. Why should he go so low as to hit someone who has got nothing to do with him??? I for one, did not hit out at his partner, knowing fully well how stupid I’d look if I were to sound my displeasure at her.

This is all due to educational background and maturity. I know he’s obsessed about putting one over me but sadly his knowledge of his own surroundings lets him down so badly. There was a time he debated with me on an online forum, that only the word “Maha” (The Most) is for describing God. Naturally the word “Mahaguru” (Teacher with the highest level of knowledge) to him felt inappropriate. Sadly, I feel sorry for his Malay teacher for failing to drum his head with substantial knowledge. Lately, he questioned my wife’s nick. He asked if it’s appropriate to be called “Perawan” (Virgin) when you’re married??? Obviously it’s lost on him that my wife’s nick is “Perawan Malam” which is a nicer way of saying “Pontianak“!!! Initially I am very pissed off about it, but as days go by, I’m laughing harder at his own stupidity. He tried to expose me and my wife, but little did he know that he’s just pulling his own pants down for the world to see his own little Willy…

This past week has been a start-stop week for me. I only spent a day at the office after taking leave on Monday (to recuperate further), attending two days of seminar on Tue and Wed and on MC on Friday. In the meantime I got myself a new phone, the cool Nokia N70. The only snag is that I cannot get the Nokia PC Suite to run on my pc. It’s a problem faced by Nokia users worldwide after I did some research. Bummer, now I’ll have to mail my photos that I’ve taken, rather than transfer them via USB. I also got myself new shoes from Adidas. It’s good to know people who work inside cos I got a 30% discount for it. Can’t wait for next weekend. A long holiday for us to enjoy…

Before I end, I’d like to help a friend by promoting his book to my visitors. As I’ve described the book in previous entries, I don’t think I need to further detail the book. So I let the promotional picture do the talking and hope you guys would give him your support too… Sorry if it’s kinda blurry. Here’s the main details. You can get it at Muzika Rekods for $14.90 or alternatively email

Author: Pujangga Malam™

Well-known on RIA 89.7FM as a controversial and sensational critic able to invoke thought-provoking and sometimes, fiery responses from fellow listeners. Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.

  1. world’s a pretty vicious place to live in, really. too much hasutan, dengki, khianat and whatnots… it’s a pity that people actually devote their entire being to bring forth other’s downfall when they could have spent that time, bertasbih & berzikir to Allah…

    i’m no saint and i have my share of sins piled up on my left shoulder. but if i can say something useful, it also serves as a reminder to me that i could also use that time to further improve myself in His eyes.

    anyway…(see, lah…digress again!!!) glad to know that everything’s fine. kirim salam to aida for me, aye?
