They Long To Be Close To You, Special Bunch!



What would by-(/bye-bye/buy-buy) elections 'feel' like? Fat chance that the MEGA Spinner MSM would share with us the real-life stories at Ground Zero. For this, we need HEROES and they come in the form of Uncle Zorro ( hey Uncle Z, it even rhymes :) ) and his Selfless Special Bunch.

Frankly, I've never met them in person but it comes naturally for any of us out there - who believe that we are after all brothers and sisters, who would feel the pain (peha kana kena cubit, peha kiri terasa sakit), transcending the 'articifial man-made barriers' - to have this deep respect and affection for them.

Their 'reports' make me - smile, cry, mad, thankful and sane - they make me human, simply, as we know that in today's world, being humane is a huge challenge. In the quest of personal interest of power and wealth, we hurt each other too often, conciously and subconciously.

So, they came, they saw and their reports 'conquered' our hearts.

In the Malay heartland of Manek Urai, despite being different, our malay brothers and sisters welcomed them with generous hospitality. I am so touched whenever i look at all the photos in their blogs, i cannot help myself but cry. 'Terima Kasih Tuan Rumah' for making their stay a wonderful experience.

Untuk menyahut seruan Encik Dnightcaller, i want to 'sing' another song this week ( please, don't blame me as my mom told me i started singing while i was in her comfy, warm tummy:) ).


My dear Uncle Zorro and Special Bunch, this song is for you...

No words can thank you all enough
May God Bless you all, always


Ikhlas, Fi-sha



They Long To Be Close To You – The Carpenters

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come trueS
So they sprinkled moon-dust
In your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue

That is why all the people in town
Follow you all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Is that the right choice of song? I mean "they long to be close to you, special bunch @ heroes" but they might be burping durians, courtesy of Manek Urai :)

And u have one final assignment...a song for those unsung heroes who toil tiredlessly night and day to ensure PAS win...and after that final assignment, you can participate in either "jangan lupa lirik" or "akademi fantasia"...just can't get over the sweet smell of victory in Manek Urai....

Dear Mr Dnightcaller

It's the right choice to me, Mr Examiner! :)

Dear Bong

Thanks for being my brother, my comrade.

((((Blowing my nose, im touched - hey, i'm such a big, cry baby)))))

Alamak, then i remember this one song by Andy Williams - "Walk hand in hand".

So, heres a song for my comrades in arms...

Walk hand in hand with me
Through all eternity
Have faith
Believe in me

Give me your hand
Love (for your country)
Is a symphony of perfect harmony When lovers (of justice, equality and humanity)such as we
Walk hand in hand

Be not afraid
For I am with you all the while
So lift your head up high
And look toward the sky

Walk hand in hand with me
This is our destiny
No greater love could be
Walk hand in hand

Hi fi-sha,

Nice blog you have and came across one of your comments that you have a nephew with autism? How is he doing now?

Dear Mr/Ms Anon

Thanks for dropping by. My Little Angel, Hariz Firdaus, is doing fine as he has more eye contacts with us and loves flipping through books now. He still has a long way to go. Thanks for your concern.
