Rest in peace Puan Armah Nordin

I went home early last Friday to find my parents being awfully weird that day. Never had I seen them like that.

Eh? Kenapa senyap saja ni rumah?” I asked.

Nenek Uncu kau meninggal dunia sudah” my dad replied.


Tadi petang di Hospital Papar.

I don’t believe this. Only a few months back my grandfather passed away, now it’s her. Nenek Uncu is my grandmother’s sister and from what I heard she was actually waiting turn to do her routine medical check-up when she passed away. She was buried at Tanah Perkuburan Kg. Benoni Papar on Saturday.

I remember when I was just a little boy during school holidays; I frequently went to her house to play toys. I think the toy belongs to her granddaughter; it was a fun toy, something like Lego where you need assemble it to create whatever you want. I really love to play that type of toys, love the assembling part. I guess that why I’m a Civil Engineer now. Building things are like a game to me eh? Because of my enthusiasm playing with it, Nenek Uncu suggested that I come there to play during the day and be back at my grandparents’ house before sunset. At one point I stayed overnight there, stayed with my Uncle Daing, to be woken up early in the morning to find me playing with my favourite toy. Up until today I would be remembered as the grandson who woke up early in the morning to assemble parts of toys.

Oh I do remember that she loves to bake cakes. I love her cakes, especially the icing. I would always see her making the icing, and of course would be the one who will be doing the quality check 😉 and also in charge in “disposing” the rest of the icing from the enemy hehehehehe. It was a fun memory to me and I’m going to remember her just like that.



The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
