We see things as we are

Happy Monday! Monday is not my favorite day but Monday morning traffic is better than Friday evening going through two hours of heavy traffic at Jalan Sg Besi just to get home to Ampang. Besides, I don't believe in Monday Blues - it's in your mind!

I think whole of last week was very eventful. World Cup 2006: England lost it and Beckham stepped down as captain. That's not too bad because I'm not a fan of England. I'm disappointed that Brasil lost. I think they play good game and with lots of passion and art to it. England is like commercial break - "Brand It Like Beckham". Germany on the other hand, won. Much to my disappointment. Many people think it's fixed - they gotta look good as a host. I'd like to bet for Portugal for the finals, if not Italy or France. But I think Germany will win. Hehehe enough of World Cup. Better have a cuppa instead!

One shocking news was Mawi unceremoniously breaking up his engagement to his fiancee Diana Naim through the phone. What the heck! I'm no longer a fan of Mawi anyways. Popularity has changed him and I don't like his new image. What's wrong with men nowadays. Too many Jantan and not many Lelaki, I guess. I thought Mawi is different. Hmmm kinda reminds me of my ex-hubby who only sms me to tell me it was over between us. Well, at least Mawi spoke to Diana. That still doesn't make it right though, Mawi.

Whatever it is there are three sides to every story.

We don't see things as they are,
we see them as we are.

- Anais Nin

However, this scenario is all too familiar. When a man wants a woman, he would go all out to woo her. Sometimes he even begs her. Promised the world to her. When he no longer wants her, he becomes indifferent to her. Shove her aside like dirt. The least he could do is be a man and break it gently to her. Give her that last shred of dignity and give her proper closure.

Mawi, please be a MAN and meet Diana!

I feel sad too that Erra and Yusri got divorced. Not that I'm a fan of either celebrity but I'm not a fan of break-ups either.

Closer to earth, a close friend is also going through divorce. That doesn't help me. I was full of admiration, sometimes envy, for them as a couple. My perception of them as a strong couple was wrong. They had separated and lived apart for the last six years and the happy couple image was just a front cover. Kinda took me by surprise.

With too many break-ups, divorces and my own relationship failings, my faith in marriage is beginning to erode. Is there such thing as a happy ever after ending?


  • hi naliza!

    talking about world cup, hehe, i think germany deserves to win over argentina that night, considering the great fighting spirit that they showed when they were still trailing behind argentina. that goal by klose memang cantek siot and totally UNEXPECTED!! nope, i don't think that particular match was fixed - i mean, can't u just see how italy was trying to "melengah-lengahkan masa" after they scored their first goal? diorang konfiden kot masa tu yg diorang akan menang - but thank God for Klose's goal! but i have to admit that the german team tend to crack under pressure, that's why their game was a bit "hampeh" immediately after italy scored - but they didn't give up and that's the good thing!

    by the way, i'm sooo happy that both england and brasil are out from the world cup, he!he! personally, i think england is over-hyped & over-rated, while brasil pulak, hehe, no comment!;-)

  • world-cup story....from a lady's perspective...nice to get into a lady's emotion abt free kicks and goals.....*smile*

    Separationa dn divorce stories ....also from a lady's perspective...reading that, i found no difference from my own reaction. One don't even sack a tea-lady without properly saying teh right things....What more a fiance, one you have loved ...and probably one who have prayed for ur success in the first place..

    as always....your blog makes nice reading!!

  • sometimes life is more than just about us. it's the whole network of the universe. some people said think for our own happiness first. to some, happiness is when everyone is happy. so, its like chicken and egg thingy, which one come first ah?
