Quitting or taking a break?

Federal Highway traffic at its worth evenn the jam starts before the toll gate.

Have yoy ever lose hope in trying to get/achieve something? That you've put on so much efforts, done so many things, compromising your life and sacrificing other things to get the thing you're pursuing?

And you got tired after a while. You told yourself, it's not worth trying that it is just not meant to be yours?

Do you quit trying or just taking a break to make a stronger comeback later?

For me now, I'm just plain tired and taking a break but not sure for how long?

It's Mak Jah

If you know me well enough, one of my favorite eating places for lunch is Gerai Mak Jah, which is currently located near Dewan MBSA Seksyen 27 Shah Alam.

If you want to have the bests of northern (Kedah) cuisine, you have to try eating at GMJ. My favorite is of course gulai (kari) ikan although I normally just take the gulai, not the isi. The gulai tastes like my father's!

For peeps who work or have worked in PROTON may have known GMJ since it was under a tree and of course knows Mak Jah really well. Although the business have been passed on to her daugter, Kak Piah, we still refer the place as GMJ. :-)

Yesterday, while I was there, Mak Jah was at the gerai. It is quite rare these days to see Mak Jah at the gerai since she prefers to stay at home. Talking to Mak Jah is always fun. Yesterday, she talked bout her grandchildren and their whereabouts. And Mak Jah still has good memories she could still remember, for instance, when she last saw Chaom at the gerai, which was sometimes last year.

Before I left the gerai, I asked Mak Jah to smile for the camera and she was not hesitant at all to 'strike a pose' and she was so happy to see her picture on my phone.

Right before I left the gerai Mak Jah was like extending both of her hands to salam with me, which never happened before and I gladly salam her back and I saw she was silently uttering something which I don' know what. Maybe she was praying something for me?

Anyway, thanks Mak Jah (and Kak Piah) for feeding us nice foods and this is for the album...

1903 - The Faculty cat

Life has been pretty rough lately. With the demanding schedule at work and school, moral and motivation have been very low, even running seems no longer interesting.

Anyway, got to take cue from this lyrics - David Archuleta's Elevator.

I had a dream last night, I didn't know which floor to get off on. The doors, they opened on 4 and 5 and 6. And you were gone, all gone. I didn't understand, I didn't wanna know. At least I took a chance, I had to let it go

Elevator goes up, elevator come down and you just go with the flow until your feet are back on the ground. It's an endless ride. Sometimes it takes you up, sometimes it tears you down inside. But it's the butterflies that keep you feeling so alive, so alive. You gotta get back that high

And in my dream last night the doors they finally shut and I was there, somewhere alone in my reality inside an empty box that's filled with air. But I don't care, noooo. Next time I'll get it right, next time I'll be okay. I'll have a different dream tonight, tomorrow's another.

You'll never know what you're gonna get. What you don't expect will come and find you. If you laugh or cry, if you run and hide. But it's all right.

...and this is the picture of the day, taken at The Faculty, right before my Public Economics (yaaawwnn...) class.

1803 - Bright Friday morning

The sun was shining brightly this morning.

The picture was taken while I was on my way to work along New Pantai Expressway.
