Song For You


What’s Abd?!!

Life has been really busy for me of late. It has been really busy that I haven’t really seen my family much.

The past month has been especially tiring with rehearsals for my two upcoming productions due in March with just one week separating the other.

One of the things that I’ve been trying hard to do at my rehearsals is to cry. I’ve never been good at crying as I’ve developed the ability not to feel as much. The last time I remembered crying was when I visited my bestfriend’s mom in the hospital.

She had been battling with cancer over the years and that time when I was at the hospital to visit her, I just broke down and cry when she was unresponsive to whatever that I was talking to her. My bestfriend had warned me prior to entering that she was strapped to several tubes and I couldn’t digest the image when I saw her personally.

Nonetheless, she has since passed on and I hope she is well-taken care of by the angels. It’s unusual of me to upload songs here but if there’s any song that can remind me of her, this has got to be it. Because I remembered tearing while having dinner with HZ and FGB once when this song came on the radio and I was talking about her suffering.

Sorry non-malay listeners, the song is in Malay. Titled Laguku Untukmu (My Song For You)

This song, was perhaps intended for a person who has lost the person he loved. The music video depicts the loss of a lover but I feel that this song has a much deeper meaning to it especially when you do not watch the video. Just listen and you’ll get what I mean.

Lyrics

Kehadiran membawa seribu erti
Terasa bagaikan suatu mimpi
Indah..Mahligai yang kita bina
Impian kini terlaksana sudah

Tiada ku terlintas akan terjadi
Kita kan berpisah jua akhirnya
Sejenak..Ku terfikir segala
Oh keindahan bersamamu…ohhh…

Kembalilah kasih kepada diriku
Hidupku sepi tanpa kehadiranmu
Dengar rayuanku jeritan batinku
Masih dahagakan kemesraanmu
Hanya kau yang ku cinta tiada kedua
Usah biar ku menderita

Setelah kau pergi tiada kembali
Pilunya tak dapat ku menggambarkan
Abadi kasihku yang amat suci
Biarku yang dalam kegelapan

Dengarlah dendangan laguku untukmu
Suara hati lambang suci murni
Berat saatku dilamun rindu
Setelah lama dikau pergi oh…
Kasihku… oh…

Kembalilah kasih kepada diriku
Hidupku sepi tanpa kehadiranmu
Dengar rayuanku jeritan batinku
Masih dahagakan kemesraanmu
Hanya kau yang ku cinta tiada kedua
Usah biar ku menderita

Setelah kau pergi tiada kembali
Pilunya tak dapat ku menggambarkan
Abadi kasihku yang amat suci
Biarku yang dalam kegelapan
Kasihku… oh…

What’s Abd?!!

The current economic downturn has probably caused more damage than what most people imagined. Just a few days ago, I was informed by an ex-colleague that one of my ex-colleague had committed suicide.

He was turning 27 this year.

Details of why he committed suicide were not known but it was believed that he had committed suicide due to financial problems. He had only recently got married 2 years ago to a very beautiful girl. It was understood that they had since separated. He had committed suicide by smoke inhalation. He did this on his own and his body when discovered, was decomposed.

While most people would eck and yuck at the thought let alone the sight of a decomposed body, it all seems normal and just another death for me even when the circumstances are abnormal. My 1.5years serving in the Singapore Police Force had allowed me to get up close and personal with the dead. In light of this, we can expect more deaths in the coming months until the economy recovers as more people go out of job and land themselves in heavy debts.

Perhaps, we will never know why he committed suicide.

Perhaps, we will never know why he resigned his job.

Perhaps, we will never know why his marriage was on the rocks.

One thing we will know, he was the only person ever who told me to go out and try to love someone because he said that my love age was 0 (that was in 2005). I have since loved and lost but I truly understand what he meant by that. Though our friendship was short, I will always remember you not for the amount of cigarettes you huffed and puffed with me during our working hours but I will remember your true friendship in opening me up to the world of love because I have since been able to learn to love.

THANK YOU

REST IN PEACE

A hero’s parting


What’s Abd?!!
NEWSFLASH!!!

Let us all mourn for the passing of a nation’s hero who have left us

Deceased
JB Jeyaretnam
82 years (2008)

Let us remember him for the struggles that he had to endure in his politically long career as THE FIRST OPPOSITION MP to have won a seat in 15 years in 1981 election.

He had only recently been reinstated to the bar and had launched the Reform Party in July this year to mark a new beginning for Singapore. Nonetheless, time was not on his side as he passed away due to a heart failure.
