550. U Rock Bro..


Pocketeers,
I have a friend who's got a passion into something,
and he's giving everything he got into it like the air
in his lung is depending on it.
I cant tell u guys his actual thing right?
he'll find this blog and know i'm talking
about him right away!


ok, lets just say that he climb walls or rocks.
when he was young, regardless of people's smirk
and jitter about him doing such dangerous sport,
he kept going on, spending most of his weekends
polishing his skills and going to tournament
here and there. waahhh!! the bujang life :D
scratches here, scratches there, a few torn
muscle and broken bones was never an issue
for him. He loves it with all his heart.

But then he got married.
His mother thought he would stop doing the
dangerous sport that only ask u one thing.
Hold On and live? or Let Go  to die,
but instead he kept going strong.
Even with the babies coming out, his fingers
is still stained by the chalk they use to
rock climbing and his baby's first rattler was
made from carabiner stacked in together.
Pergh!! a true man's way of living.

Then his life changed.

They start to call him up not for him to enter
competitions, but for him to do demo's or be
the trainer in places they're teaching SPM
kids who never care about rock climbing
or flying fox stunt.
He got payment of course,
and they're paying him generously...

He is now in his forties with memories of
climbing K2 kept in the living room by the
pic of him posing naked in the snow.
He is now arranging people for rock climbing trips,
giving training and demo's on safety features.
Lectures on how to be safe and gear maintenance.

He is doing good now,
still working in kilang like i do,
with weekends full of trips to all over malaysia
(Including nearby country like Singapore, Japan, Thailand)
His wife never complain much, as she got the trip
to all over the world as the bribe.

I guess I have to say that I envy him,
His hard work and passion finally paid off.

So what is our passion or interest pocketeers?
Are we doing good with it?
Are we good in doing it?
Any good doing it?
ohh...


'Doing! Doing! Doing!!' the sound of me 
slamming my head to the wall... ohh

"ok, lets just say that he climb walls or rocks.when he was young, regardless of people's smirk and jitter about him doing such dangerous sport,he kept going on, spending most of his weekends polishing his skills and going to tournament here and there." <- When this happens,i mean with all the mock from people and you-know-what,it's nice to listen to some eminem and fort minor songs.


"He got payment of course,
and they're paying him generously..." <- insyaAllah one day! ah so jealous.

"I guess I have to say that I envy him,His hard work and passion finally paid off." <- i envy him too T_T my passion isn't that generous.it is only generous to some amazing talents like J.K Rowling and Camilla Lackberg.

i am not doing good with it,and i am not good at it. *sigh*

eh tak baik mengeluh nanti rezeki susah nak masuk :p

agi hidup,agi ngelaban kawan!

it's never too late.it's never too late - three days grace

ok dah banyak merapu.bai kawan.

Are we doing good with it?

I don't know, if we love rock climbing then it must be good to be able to do what we love. To even have a chance.

Are we good in doing it?

Well even tho you're not good with it, will it makes you stop. nahh i bet it's what keep us going, striving for the better part of us.

Any good doing it?

This is a real man question.

what a passion! that reminds me of the 127 Hours movie..even with no right hand, he's still going on rock climbing. there are things we couldn't resist, right..
ur friend is amazing. i adore his passion & commitment. would u send my regards to him? hehe.. ^^
well im not exactly sure if im really working on my passion. writing is my passion.
i started writing a story, but im stuck halfway through it..still looking for more inspirations, but i've got lack of time.
i dont think im a good writer yet, mine is mediocre..huhu.....
i don't do any good with it...

aku suka part health nutritious.you know something related to science and whatsoever. tpi sayang minat tak berkembang dan xde peluang. bila fikir balik kalau aku ambik laluan yang betul siapa aku skrg ni.

tapi masih bersyukur dgn apa yang ada. dan kite seharusnya cuba untuk improve. bukan menyesali apa yg terlepas.
