Going On A Hiatus…

I was back at my critical best on radio this morning and naturally the brickbats came thick and fast. It surprised quite a few people who’ve been saying it has been quite boring without yours truly heating up the airwaves with my no-nonsense comments. Well I’ve tolerated non-stop whinings from the listeners over the past week, lamenting Syah Ibrahim‘s apparent leaving of the radio station. It got to a point where it began to look as though the world was gonna end for them, with him leaving the airwaves. Of course I share their sadness cos truth be told, nobody carries the morning show as well as he does. But I had to do something and knowing me, I slammed them hard for getting too carried away and emotional over this.

The fact of the matter is, Syah is just TAKING A BREAK from radio. His contract is also up so he might take the time off to assess his options. He may or may not be back but I’m slanted to say that he will be back soon, refreshed and rejuvenated than ever, I hope, that I am confident of. How do I know this you might ask??? Cos besides Hafeez Glamour, only Syah has a loyal set of followers and it wouldn’t make sense for him to abandon them just like that. Anyway, his business has also got to do with radio in terms of promotions and advertising, so the listeners need not have to worry too much. I doubt the management will allow him to leave just like that when he has one of the highest ratings. Still not convinced??? Remember what happened to Rod Monteiro and Glenn Ong when they were still at Perfect 10 98.7FM a few years ago??? Well, let’s just wait and see if I’m correct or not 6 months down the road. If I’m wrong, then sue me for my apparent overconfidence. And no, I do not have any inside information on this…


I guess this will be my final entry before I go on a long hiatus, just like Syah Ibrahim. I’ll be too busy with work, what with the upcoming General Elections taking up a considerable amount of time, to the point of affecting my social and family life. And right after that, I have my week-long reservist training (AGAIN!!!), followed by a host of weddings which I am involved in, my long-overdue honeymoon and to cap it off, the World Cup. So I guess it makes sense that I’ll be spending less time on the PC due to all the commitments I’m involved in till July.

In all honesty, I’ve lost the drive to continue blogging. The novelty is simply wearing off. Maybe I’ve set such high standards on my own typings that it’s come to a point where my ideas have since stagnated. Cos if you were to rewind back to my previous entries, I seem to be at my creative best when I’m full of angst and filled with anger inside, just like my comments in the airwaves.

Like Syah, I hope to be back fresh and rejuvenated, probably with a new set of design layout for the blog. I know some of you love to change your blog skins but personally I subscribe to the old adage, “If nothing’s broken, don’t fix it.” It’s been almost a year since I’ve been with this skin, so perhaps it’s time for a change too, and what better way to coincide with my return. I’ll be back in July, don’t miss me too much. I’ll still drop by your blogs from time to time. God bless to all you people out there…

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.

  2. What you said is quite true. Blogging has lost its novelty. It’s like everybody is blogging and blogging crap. That includes me. I think I write best when I am angry also and with a cpu. With a lappy, I tend to not hv my thoughts flow as freely as before.
