My 4th Dimension

I get distracted easily, and I always find it frustrating. My imagination tend to go wild even when the cricket quiets down. Be it in the public or alone, my imagination never sleep. It sound good isn’t it? There is a problem with it, the imagination were too abstract most of it which make it hard for me to translate it into the world. I guess I will need discipline to control my thoughts.

Somehow, I found several ways to bridge the abstract into the world, my world at least. Writing them down, is the most basic step among all. Lately, I mingle around videography as a new hobby, that is a good method too. The most fascinating method I ever found was dancing. I am able to channel my self into the other dimension and get out with full control. Unlike the other two methods I mentioned, I can only deliver them out. But dancing, I am able to go in the 4th dimension and at the same time hold ground to reality.

It does not ensure distraction immunity, I still get distracted. I’m not distracted because of people looking at me or what so ever, but I get distracted when I sense depreciation and ignorance. When humans are desperate, they would do anything to achieve their needs. I do get desperate when I keep failing to get into the atmosphere, and I will close my eyes, to stop my brain from interpreting my physical sight.

Slowly, I started to light some fire, just so that I am able to see in the dark. Each breath I take is another step into the other dimension. Step by step and I am in. Sometimes I use the music as a booster, it’s like a transportation that helps me travel faster. Once I am in, the outside world are no longer heard.

I dwell in it, feel it, until it overflows me. Then my body started to move, starting from the smallest gesture, to release what’s overwhelmed me. As the feeling flows much stronger than the river streams, my body starting to move more and more. It feels awesome as I am able to manipulate the abstract, deliver it into the world instantly and having full control of it. Of course I hardly get the original idea out because there is an interpretation process going on in between, and I deliver back in the interpreted idea, then it provide a space to define another new thing.

I don’t stay inside for long, that would be running away from the reality. I will go back to reality, and it is easy. Much easier than snapping your fingers. I just open my eyes, and I am back.

How I wish, people can visit each others imagination. It would be a great experience and awesome way to exchange ideas.

The Red Dice

Since this post in categorized as random. I am going to tell a random story. The stories centers around a place named Cyberjaya. There live many boys and girls, but I am going to talk about one boy only, me. I bought a new sony handycam mainly to record my own choreography, persevering memory and produce casual videos. As for producing casual videos, I randomly inspired to use red dice. Hence, a search for red dice begin.

According to the standard protocol of a searching mission, research about the subject is require before any further action and that is what I did. Okay I am sorry, I lied, I did not do any research for red dice. With no hesitation I walk out the house and start looking for red dice. Deep inside my heart, I knew that the red dice is not something common, therefore, I decided to travel to KL, the “New York” of Malaysia to search the red dice.

From station to station, bus-stop to bus-stop, yes, I reached KL. Since the red dice is rare, so I started off with the rare looking stall and shop lots around the “golden river”, Sungai Wang. Surprisingly none of them got what I came for, the red dice. That did not stop me to keep looking for the red dice. I re-draw the plan and try to allocate another strategic location.

The next location was Time Square, a place where the time is always square. Every time I step into the building, I feel that my time is square. I did not get distracted by other things, I was fully focus on the searching. I start asking around the mini stall and they all shook their heads like they never did before. I keep walking until I came across some gifts and souvenirs shop. I pull all the courage from all direction of oxygen and ask the cashier, ” Do you sell dice? ” . ” What’s that? ” she replied. I said it twice but she shook her head. I shouted to my friends outside the shop, ” Hey, what do you call dice in chinese ?” and I deliver the message using chinese, but still the cashier shook her heads. The shop owner came out and just about before he speak the first word, the cashier somehow understand me. She said, ” Oh, dice, sorry we don’t sell it here.”

That was disappointing, but no matter what, I was determined to find the red dice. I tried the magic store, but they do not sell normal dice. Instead, they ask me to go for the bookstore. The bookstore, where people sell books, also happen to be selling dice as well, but it was white dice. All the negative event did not discourage me. However, I was a little bit tired for carrying too much of hope with such result.

No matter what, I keep on walking, in a square manner. When all hopes seems to be fading away, something bright was just in front of my eyes. I heard some voices coming from the shop, it was so soft yet sharp. The shop looks fancy, it was a fancy looking gift and souvenirs shop. The moment I step into the shop, I can feel the presence of the red dice. I tried so hard to look for it, from left to right, up and down, the red dice was no where to be found. Again, I summoned the courage from all direction of oxygen, to ask the cashier. She gave me a sad look saying, ” We do sell dice here, unfortunately they are all red in color 😦 “.

Despite looking at the sad face, I smile in return. ” Perfect, that’s what I need. “, I said. I can see all the red dice, all red looking gorgeous dices. I was so obsessed with it that I purchase three red dice at the price of RM 3. With the red dices in my palm, I felt like holding the world, full of glorious joy. I walked home with glory that day.

An Interesting Journey

It is so obvious that we need money to travel, no doubt. Without money, it is almost impossible for you to travel. You can do a lot of traveling with money, do many things for your traveling. Of course it is possible to travel without money.

I do it everyday, traveling from one place to another place, and it’s totally free. Every morning I wake up, and travel to my computer. Along the way, I saw a lot of things that inspire me in my everyday life. When I open my eyes, I saw the ceiling fan spinning at the speed of light. Then I noticed those are actually sun light while the fan spin normally. Then I saw a wardrobe, and find some cloth to change, but I realized it’s not my wardrobe, mine is just beside it.Oh well, then I  keep on walking and saw the washroom, this is where I rediscover who I am. I carried on, step outside the door, and saw three more doors. I was panic, it was like a maze, I’m not sure which way to go. So I close my eyes, and walk by faith, not by sight.

Yes! I managed to get through that maze but then I felt sleepy again. The pleasure of closing my eyes was just too comfortable that make me want to go back. All those wonderlands flash through in front of my vision and the minions were begging me to play with them. At that moment, my body needed more oxygen, immediately I knew what to do, I open my mouth wide to let the oxygen outside have access into me. My body is calm while my soul were having a meeting to discuss if I need to make a U-turn.

By the decision from the committee board, majority agree that no U-turn should be tolerate at the moment, therefore march forward. I keep walking and walking, until every department of my body felt tired. The calculating department instantly calculate the distance towards the destination and shouted,”10 more walking steps! don’t give up!”. Suddenly all the department are all fired up after hearing the shout and start moving faster and faster.

Finally, in front of  the computer already. The world is at my finger tip now. Visiting some of the world renowned website to check out what’s hot and what’s not. But wait, NO class this morning?? Oh well, go back to sleep then.

Porridge????

Since young, I only know one type of porridge, and I never like it. Porridge is the only word translated from Chinese that I know. Until one day, I met the internet, and everything changed.

I’m lucky to be born in Malaysia, because in Malaysia you don’t need internet to tell you that there are not just a type of people. In our everyday life, we learn that there are many other races other than your own, there are many different kinds of people which have a different opinion and attitude.But I never learn about porridge, and through internet, I found that there are so many types of porridge from different parts of the world. Atheroma, Dalia, Gofio, Instant Quacker Oatmeal, Kasha, Krentjebrij, Mush, Ready Brek and many more! Some day I’ll taste them all.

So I found out that, the porridge that I known for a long time which is made of rice and consume by many other Asian countries are also known as Congee ! I somehow starting to like congee after doing some research of chinese history. They all look so delicious. I blame those who serve bad taste congee when I was younger and it make me rejected congee for so long. Damn you!  But it’s alright, I forgive you, whoever it is, at least I appreciate congee from now on.

Back to Basic

Everything starts from the basic, and dance is included in that everything category. It is not compulsory for you to start off with the basic and dance very good, but of course it is recommended to learn the basic first.

Our life goes like that as well, there are people who emphasize on the basic first, and develop step by step constructively to ensure a secure path to achieve goals and dreams. There are also people that have the courage to take the leap of faith, striking the head before they learn how to strike properly. Sometimes they are successful, sometimes they failed, and often when they failed, it’s much likely very hard for them to make a come back because they don’t have a proper foundation. When you fall, you will be having hard time to stand up again, and this is where you need a reference to know how to make that come back. Of course friends and family support is important as well, but they can’t just point you the way, because they are actually another building, their foundation belongs to them. They can share it but you can’t have it, you need to have your self a proper foundation. When all these great buildings come together, that’s what make a great city.

I’ve seen a few friends of mine, they are great in dancing, but they reached at some point where they stuck, eagerly want to improve more but something is missing. This is where you refer back to the basic, start from the beginning, and trace what’s missing. It will be hard, but it’s the determination that will bring you forward. Through out the journey you’ll find something new, which will help you improve faster and better. Eventually, a breakthrough you shall experience.

How deep you dig in determine how tall can you build.

LOL LOL LOL

I still remember when I was 14, I went for a stage performing camp. I learned many things but I forgot most of it. One of the thing that I remember is about writing a script. It is not necessary to write long script to get good impression. A person can use just one word in a conversation, with different facial expression and intonation, to indicate different understanding and respond, yet effective. After that camp, I realize it applies to our everyday life too. It is so true, and some Russian sang a song using only very simple lyric such as, oh , ya, ho, and LOL. In the song, I heard mostly he sang LOL. Here’s the video clip, enjoy the song.
