Life Quote

I love beautiful words..And i always see a reflection from it. It is amazing..It has no boundaries, let it be from any religion, belief or teaching..All beautiful words come from a sincere heart of those who wrote it. Below are some of my favourite Quote about life 🙂

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
William James

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Mark Twain

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
Cary Grant

“Does money upset the hearts of learned men? He answered, “men whose hearts are changed by money are not learned”.

Abu Hamid Al Ghazali((RH)

Yep people..Good Quotes sometimes bring smiles in your heart ain’t they 🙂

Life is a Song

 I stumble upon this beautiful song by Patrick Park, really inspiring. Enjoy people!

You say life is a dream where we can’t say what we mean
Maybe just some roadside scene that we’re driving past
There’s no telling where we’ll be in a day or in a week
And there’s no promises of peace or of happiness

Well is this why you cling to every little thing
And polverize and derrange all your senses
Maybe life is a song but you’re scared to song along
Until the very ending

Oh, it’s time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we’ve been
It’s time to cut ties that won’t ever free our minds
From the chains and shackles that they’re in

Oh, tell me what good is saying that you’re free
In a dark and storming sea
You’re chained to your history, you’re surely sinking fast
You say that you know that the good Lord’s in control
He’s gonna bless and keep your tired and oh so restless soul
But at the end of the day when every price has been paid
You’re gonna rise and sit beside him on some old seat of gold
And won’t you tell me why you live like you’re afraid to die
You’ll die like you’re afraid to go

Oh, it’s time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we’ve been
It’s time to cut ties that won’t ever free our minds
From chains and shackles that they’re in
From the chains and shackles that they’re in

Well life is a dream ’cause we’re all walking in our sleep
You could see us stand in lines like we’re dead upon our feet
And we build our house of cards and then we wait for it to fall
Always forget how strange it is just to be alive at all

That’s how i speak my Dusun :(

Went to the vet at Ranau today to send my kitten Miss Stoking for checkup. She was being terrorized by two evil male cat and badly injured 🙁

Ranau do not actually have a private Vet, but do have Jabatan Haiwan where they provide a clinic for animals. Well unlike private vet, they don’t have fancy equipments or proper system for checking, but yea, as long as they provide what they suppose to provide rite..

I went in and greeted by middle age man-which i don’t think is an animal doctor..But experience assistant. yep he checked my kitten lovingly and he knows what he was doing 🙂

While he was checking, a couple came in, both in their 50s i think. The woman ask me : Aiyaa..nekure di gima lo dungau nu? (What’s wrong with your cat?)

For 3 second i was thinking should i reply in Dusun or in Malay? Then maybe to be polite i choose to reply in Dusun. And it took me another 5 second to think what is ‘Actually’ in Dusun language. Well just make my sentence nice 🙂

Unable to figure it out, i reply : Sumakit (Sick) (Or should it actually be Sinumakit? Uh i don’t know.)which is a very straight forward answer. Well, i know that as Dusun, i can’t just reply a word. people will expect that there will be explanations after that.

My brain keep searching for the right words and then sentence to explain. Before i can think any, the man asked : Haro naakan dau? Naakaakan matu do rasun? (Something she eat? Maybe poison?)

Then my brain like an old harddisk spining soundly to think for a words. I was planning to say ‘Attacked by the neighbour’s cat’ – in which unfortunately i don’t know what is neighbour in Dusun. So i said ‘Nokokot di Dungau sabalah walai’  (My late grandma might disowned me if she ever hear me speak Dusun like that)

I dont know. Should i use Nokokot or Kinokot or Kinokoton– but im pretty sure the root word is kokot-which mean bite.

And  Sabalah is actually a Malay word being Dusunized by me which is mean next to in that sentence :P..

And yep, to make things easy for me, i just put on my smiling face and let the couple do all the talking and i just smile,nod and say ‘iri nogi..‘  In English it just mean ‘Yeah’

A visit to the vet really makes me realize how poor my vocabulary in Dusun is. Actually maybe i know what the word is , but when trying to put it into sentence, it will really sound funny, stupid or even rude..haih

And it will take me almost 30secs to reply in Dusun, as i need to think of the right words-right grammar and putting it into sentence.  i am really ashamed with myself!
