I am a big fan of car accessories.

You name it.
In-car entertainment system.
Brand new steering.
Start button system.
Auto lock brake system.

Okay.

Truthfully I dont know their proper names, but when I go to the car accesories shop, honestly, I couldn't hold my purse. My money immediately fly away.

Like today, as there are year end sales, there are discounts on the in car entertainment system (GPS and maps include). This is very attractive to me, not because of the entertainment stuff (I am not into watching movies in car as it will invite annoying headache) but the maps thingy are sort of useful to me. I dont really know my way around so the maps and navigation system can come in handy.

Oh.

And there is a red formula one like steering wheel....on my...if only you know how hard it is for me to say no to it...i cannot bring it home...because honestly i am not into modifying cars....so i have to let it go as my steering wheel is still in perfectly good condition.

The other thing that caught my mind apart from the in car entertainment system and steering wheel is.......the start button system.

I first encounter that system in my dad's car. I love it so much that i wanted to modify my car into a push start car. But again, i dont like modifying. The most I can do with my car is change the seat cover entirely with a leather seat one. And thats what I plan to do next time. After I buy myself a great 2tb/4tb hard disk for me to store all my stuffs.

I had a lot of softcopy stuffs.
I had used all my 1tb and 2 500mb external for that.
I am not regretting anything i tell you.

Assassins Creed: The Movie

Hi!

I've watched the Assassins Creed last night (25 December 2016)! Finally! After about one and a half year of waiting! (cue Sirius Black's line in HPPOA - "I did my waiting! One-And-A-Half year of it....in Azkaban!) So, yep. I watched it last night, on Christmas Day, at 7.00 pm, with my partner-in-crime (only that we've never attempted any crime whatsoever - but you know this, do you?) at The Spring.

The journey there aren't much, though. We've encountered two office-mates and one low-phone battery situation, which, thankfully, the partner-in-crime solved it with his very own powerbank. We chose the couple seat - not because we liked being secluded, but because the seat (sofa) is so very comfy and - let's face it, all of us loved sitting at the back, watching the movie at the farthest end, not too close to the screen and hurts the eye, and that, as I am quite short, the seats at the back assured me of the part where the head of those in front wouldnt bother my line of sights....

But that's not what I intended to write in this entry, but, as you know me, I would ramble before I get to the real story here. So there's that. End of my rambling.

So.
Assassins Creed.
La Shay'a Waqi'un Mutlaq, Bala Kulum Mumkin.
"Nothing Is True. Everything Is Permitted".

Overall, I would give this movie a 6 out of 10. The graphic is great, the action is great, but the talking part is quite dull.

**Spoiler Alert**

The talking part is essential to those who never played any of the game franchise prior to watching the movie. It told us the story of Assassins and Templar, two groups/clan who fought over the years to gain access to the Apple of Eden. The Assassins are the protector of the Apple, which had the genetic code to access Human's free will, which the Templar aimed to use to destroy human's free will so that they will submit to whatever it is needed to follow one Templar. That's actually the basic of the Templar-Assassins rivalry.

The action part is great. You can see every bit there was in the game. The hidden blade, the swinging of axes and swords and poles....the most important thing of all - the leap of faith.
There are three leap of faiths performed, and only one we can actually see the Assassins landed. The thing is, the Assassin did not land on his back, how it was supposed to be. As it is turning from the medieval times to the present times, as the Animus was in the way of a perfect leap of faith, Callum Lynch (descendant of Assassin Aguilar de Nerha) landed on his feet.

Yep.

And Animus aren't how it was in the game. The Animus in the movie is like a claw and it permitted movement of Callum to mimic and synchronize his ancestor's memory perfectly. The plot is great, I follow every part and I even felt the sadness when the female Assassin died. They truly sacrifice their life for the creed.

There's one part I like, where the creed's maxim is uttered through the language of the Great Mentor, Altair Ibn La Ahad,

لاشيء واقع مطلق، بل كل ممكن
La Shay'a Waqi'un Mutlaq, Bala Kulum Mumkin,

And it reverberated in the halls of the animus, several times, and we can see Callum embraces his inner Assassin and visited by many Assassins, surrounding him. That's when he decided that he would fight for the Assassins after revealing the hidden place of the Apple of Eden (pretty much too late, isn't it, Callum?)

But, (again, Spoiler) he made up for it at the end.

And I am very sure there's another Assassins Creed Movie in near future.
One will never let the movie end the way it did.

Well, that's all from me about my favorite gaming franchise's movie - Assassins Creed.

Him

when such a simple word of 'him'
meant a person instead of a mere word
when i heard the word,
thoughts flew to only one being
someone whom I never thought
would be big in my life
that only a simple word of 'him'
that my brain pointed directly
to him.

t'was towards the end of February
when the sight fell onto a slender silhouette
tall and fair, dimpled and impressive
just like how I pictured, always
immediately I thought of whats necessary
needs of talks arises like some kind of debt
showing calm, without being expressive
as I followed stepping out of doorways

there he stood, slender as ever
with two others talks and laughs
embarrassingly I joined with full smiles
the two introduced while he listened
whats next something he remembers
became inside jokes, forever, perhaps
he knew me, in preventive styles
which he regretted as we envisioned

the first meeting was way before
eleventh January to be very precise
like a damsel i required assistance
he came to help, thus how we first met
since then i vowed to have more
just be acquaintance would be very suffice
now we're more, regardless of distance
best of friends, more like a duet

to tell the truth there's more on my side
his images flashes whenever i'm awake
warming at first, very annoying as now
as I randomly smells of his manly perfume
feelings if any, i held all of it inside
unsure of any, afraid to make mistake
but very sure it'll bring me to my doom

but once I would like to record
this is the first that had happened
when that perfume I smell I think of one
seeing any body which is slender or slim
immediately him my brain moved toward
or seeing anyone with similar fashioned
with the simple word above means none
other than the man referred to as him

unknowingly so,
his feelings if its the same
preferred to keep it a secret
though I am not sure it is anymore
thinking he knew as he seemed so carefree
of teasing as if it was a mutual feeling
twas annoying but was very welcoming
probably of my feelings
that my heart unknowingly longed
after all these time
if he was, for me, my very own 'him'
then my search is over
because together,
our hearts would be mended.

An Ode from a Longing Heart

As sun arises and vision start
Images of a silhouette appeared in dream
Bearing words and acts which rattle heart
All though in dream as much it seem

Illogical, say, as just awaken
Dream as none silhouette at near
The brain conjour he who has taken
Tucking string of heart that just now so clear

T'is an ode for one whom caught me surprise
Once so ordinary now whom cant be without
I show not my face let it all a disguise
Remained so until nothing is a doubt.

My very first Review of my very first book!

First of all, for those who had a copy of my book in their possession, I would like to say Thank you very much (spasiba - sorry I couldnt write it in cyrillic, I do not have cyrillic keyboard near me right now) for your support and I really hope you will enjoy reading my book, as it is my first. For those who had finish reading my book, I would appreciate it if you write your sincerest review in Goodreads so that I will be aware of the negative and positive aspects in my first book. So that I will not repeat the negatives in my second book, and enhance the positives.

You know how it is about reviews, right?

So I've received the very first review of my book from a fellow novelist. Oh thank you very much for your kind review! It made me pumped up. It's like i'm one of the hyperactive kids given sugar when I've read the review. I was like, so very excited.

Here is the review from hte fellow novelist. As I havent asked her permission (yep, the reviewer is a her) to share her review, so please understand why I scribbled off her name. (I should've gotten her permission first, huh? But I'm writing this at 12.49, so I doubt that she's still awake, so let me just post this first...okay....)


For those who would like to submit their review to me and not via goodreads you can do so by contacting me via facebook or my email address as written at the back of my books. Please note that I am not active on facebook and that I cannot view messenger's messaging invitation through PC and please be patient that I may not read your text as soon as you posted them. Unless you texted me through FB messages and not through messenger. I dont know how it is because I am a little confused of FB messenger. I dont know why the invitation to message via messenger cannot be viewed through facebook's messages.

Anyway, for those who had a copy of my book, read and give reviews yeah? They're very important...Heeeee

If you do not have a copy of my book yet and you're interested to buy one please go to Jemari Seni website and buy it from there. I am not sure if the bookstores already had copies of my books yet, but, I hope they do!

Till next time,

Happy Ramadhan!
