Life Is Like a Grindstone

It's Friday morning, I woke up early thanks to my Lenovo alarm.

Lately, I realise myself is not really a morning person, someone who wake-up and do some regular chores in their life. It's maybe this was my period of searching something, I also don’t know what’s that thing.

Anyway, I just finished wrote a market segmentation and target market for our business plan last night.

This time, it might be a bit different. Actually, I try to find any similarities between PEST Analysis and Market Segmentation and found nothing. I ask Google for the clear answer, the thing feasible enough for 21st century’s generations.

The simplest way to understand this matter is, market segmentation is how you gonna grouping your target market according to the common needs between them like geographic, demographic, behaviour, usability, etc.

As for our industry involved is not much more directly deal with the end-user, so we have the segmentation among the businesses which will probably use the product of ours.

I don’t like to write all about these business plan thing whatsoever right now. Just now, I shared a little about last night progression only to keep myself on the ground by reminding there is some unsettle business. So my babbling is not decent enough right?

OK, buddy!

I also finished reading two books for the last 3 days. You can follow my Goodreads update for that. The last book I read is Out of the Pocket by Bill Konigsberg. I thought I should give 4 stars out of 5 to this author of such compelling fiction.

It’s the story of how a gay boy coming out from his closet and tell the entire world who the hell is he. Despite the plan against his willingness to do so. It's a mediocre excuse, he’s a football player, and there is no one in NFL openly coming out as a gay.

For some reason, I think Mr Konigsberg successfully builds up a betrayal character on Finch Gortzman, the one who outed Bobby just to ensure his place in Stanford. He’s a student reporter, and the only way he seeks for him to have a place at Stanford is by making his story outstanding on media.

And he used Bobby for that and feel nothing for that bullshit.

When the time for Booby took revenge, also through the media by cleaning up his name for being set-up by the amateur journalist I gave an applause to the author.

For me, friendship is a matter the most. In the case of Bobby, he had his back for Finch whenever someone picks him up. Then Finch chooses to ruin everything by making the friendship matter as his purpose to get something else.

The life is just like that, you know, it’s like a grindstone. Whether it grinds us down or polishes us up, unjustly its depends on us.

The way we choose how it will going to be, then we should prepare all the consequences later on. Bobby in Out of the Pocket just reminds me of these things.

The life is short, truly short, even for us to think twice. And on top of all his evil thoughts about his life if he decides to come out as I wrote previously thing are going to get a lot worse before they get worse!

I think I should put a thought for that too, soon.

Pengajaran Dari Sebuah Komik

Sejak kecil lagi, saya telah didedahkan dengan berbagai jenis komik bacaan ringan seperti Doraemon , Dewata Raya, Utopia, Naruto dan sebagainya. Namun ternyata saya lebih berminat untuk “mendalami” komik-komik Kung Fu karya penulis China seperti Tony Wong melalui karyanya Jejak Wira. Seperti biasa, kepulangan saya kali ini ke kampung halaman dalam misi menghabiskan beberapa buah Jejak Wira yang dibeli oleh abang semasa ketiadaan saya di rumah.

Ternyata plot ceritanya meskipun panjang dan tak pasti bila penghabisannya namun ia tetap tidak membosankan. Menjadi semakin menarik dan sukar bilamana ia melibatkan pergolakan politik dunia yang terang-terang menyebelahi siapa yang kuat dia yang menang.

Setelah “menelaah” kesemua komik muktabar ini saya seakan terpanggil untuk mengulas karya Tony Wong iaitu Jejak Wira yang mana saya kira ianya amat dekat dengan apa yang berlaku kini di dunia realiti.

Homosexuals and The Idea of Abnormality

Once ago, my friend and me have a little chat about stuff—if not mistaken, we gossiping a hot Math teacher from Italy, and from where it began, we start talking about gay and LGBT.

The pinnacle of it was when my friend proudly declares the gay people is abnormal.

I just sit still, silent and stunned.

I should start somewhere. Here it is, for myself, to be abnormal is to be true to oneself. And it is a kind of freedom that I longingly seek and understand, that is to be true to yourself, to who you are.

It is a freedom to be able to against the flow. It is a freedom when we do not favor the external to validate ourselves. To do this, first, we have to be abnormal, in the eye of the many.

Anyway, I don’t mean to philosophize anything here. It is just a version of abnormality that I always think and perceived before, and luckily (no pun intended), that day comes when my friend bluntly declare homosexuality is abnormal.

And, I have to revisit my thought on abnormality.

I am OK with her…

Tentang Si Genius Adi Putra

Ini coretan ringkas awal Mac 2015, beberapa hari lagi sebelum kita akan tiba pada hari yang menandakan setahun hilangnya MH370 tidak ketemu. Coretan ini tentang Adi Putra, si genius cilik yang dulunya begitu popular, semua media mahu mendapatkan cerita tentangnya.

Kini, di mana Adi Putra? Kita bertanyakan soalan begitu kerana kerisauan kita adalah kisah Adi Putra ini akan menjadi senasib generasi genius Malaysia lain-lainnya. Tentulah kita berharap ianya tidak berlaku demikian.

Hari ini mStar kembali dengan cerita tentang si Adi Putra ini. Saya antara peminat beliau. Saya kepingin mahu bertemu dan berbual dengan Adi Putra. Saya mahu berkawan dengan beliau – dan belajar dengannya. Tapi, Adi di mana?

Jika membuat carian di Google, yang berderet keluar di halaman utama adalah kisah tentang Adi Putra, si pelakon layar teater. Untuk apa ambil tahu tentang si pelakon itu. Bukanlah mendapat apa-apa manfaat pun pada perkembangan akal dan ilmu pengetahuan. Entahlah.

Cerita mStar membuka episo…
