Alexander Rybak -- Achilles -- Orang Penan

Today I want to talk about people only!
We start with....




ALEXANDER RYBAK

I just found out about this amazing little guy last night when he called me.. ok,tipu! when i studied physio..

He was born in Soviet Union, but at the age of 4, he & his family moved to Norway. Actually, his family is kinda musician family. His mother is a classical pianist while his father is a classical violinist. So, what do u expect from their son? Alex can play both very well! Infact, he's amazing!

He entered Norwegian Version Idol 2005 & managed himself until semifinal. He won several awards. Until 2009 he won 1st place of 54th Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow Russia with the highest mark ever in the history--> 387 points!

I like Alex.. He has his own style. In singing, face expression, and playing violin! His voice is somehow classic and pure.. his voice is sooo deep from.. hmm... epiglottis! hahaa.. I like how he bring song in his own way. I can listen to him all the time. And his super cute face is a bonus for him!

My favourite song ----> Fairytale, & funny little world! Video above entitled 'Fairytale'. Superb performance. Love that kind of music..

p/s : To Atiqah Mamat,Aku setuju kawin masa belajar & pujuk abah aku supaya bagi aku kawin, hanya jika aku dapat kawin dgn this ALEXANDER RYBAK! hehehe..



ACHILLES

It all starts during anatomy lab when we learned about 'Tendon Achilles' and how it got its name.
Actually, it is a myth of Greece. Achilles was the son of the nypmh Thetis and Paleus, the king of the Mirmidons .Zeus and Poseidon had been rivals for the hand of Thetis until Prometheus , the fire-bringer, warned Zeus of a prophecy that Thetis would bear a son greater than his father. For this reason, the two gods withdrew their pursuit, and had her wed Peleus.
Achilles also has the attributes of being the most handsome of the heroes assembled against Troy.

It was believed that his mother, Thetis want to protect him by make him immortal. So, she dipped him in The River of Styx and held him at heel's tendon. So, the name of the tendon, Tendon Achilles was named after him. This tendon is so strong that it can support the whole body weight.

Back to Achilles, he was unvulnerable and undefeatable as he was immortal by the water of Styx River. Until one time, there was a man who knew his weakness and shot an poisonous arrow into his heels and then. He's DEAD!

p/s : Sorry, no picture of Achilles here because Achilles seems don't like pants, in other words, he's rarely menutup aurat..


ORANG PENAN


Haritu masa smart circle, masing2 kena masak something untuk dimakan beramai2.
So,at 12 pm, Mizah asked me what to be cooked? Come on, our usrah was another an hour! Okay, we only have labu in our kitchen. Should it be Serawa or Lepat labu? Due to the limited time and limited ingredients, we decided to make lepat labu. Okay, bukak internet & cari resipi.

Buat punya buat, sekali lain macam, padahal dah ikut resipi ni. Lembik pulak. okay, takpe2, tambah tepung.. tambah gula.. tambah tepung.. tambah gula.. Arrrrgggghhh... lembik lagi!
takpe2, dah kukus nanti keraslah tu. But damn, we already kukus it for 25 minitues, longer than it need. But still, LEMBIK!!!! dua-dua dah gelabah!!! adoi.. camne ni? Dah xde rupa lepat labu dah ni. Thats the question that Mizah asked every 5 seconds! Then I said, "Mizah, kalau diorg tanya ni ape, kite cakap ini masakan tradisional Orang Penan okay? They won't know!" Orang Penan? Macam mana boleh keluar penan pun x tau! main cakap je ape terlintas.

Guess what? We did tell them that its Penan's traditional food. And..... they believed it!! That was hillariousssss!!!! They even asked the ingredients & how to cook it! I was like.. burhhhh!!!
It cant be true! I just told Kak Dura the truth and asked her to keep it as a secret!

Seriously, I don't like it. X sedap! tapi diorg kata sedap! ke ambik hati je? And I said tu Mizah,
"cancel kawin dgn org penan camni. Mak mertua reject nih!!"

To my ahli usrah, jutaan kemaafan atas kepura-puraan ini..

Once we were at home, I google for Kaum Penan & found this,

Kaum Penan (Peribumi Sarawak) hidup dalam keadaan berpindah randah atau sebahagian menetap di rumah-rumah panjang. Mereka amat bergantung hidup dengan mencari makanan, minuman, ubat-ubatan dan pakaian dari dalam hutan. Haiwan fauna dan flora menjadi sumber rezeki mereka setiap hari.

  • Rumah mereka hanya pondok yang tidak mempunyai lantai simen atau papan – mereka hanya berlantaikan kayu bulat, buluh, malah tanah sahaja dan banyak yang tidak mempunyai tandas dan sebagainya. Tidak kurang juga antara rumah yang dibina di kawasan yang tidak sesuai dan terlalu panas.
  • Kebanyakan orang Penah tidak ada sijil lahir dan sijil pengenalan. Proses pendaftaran terpkasa dibuat di bandar yang terdekat tetapi masih terlalu mahal

p/s : Serve u right Intan (and Mizah) !!!!
