Jangan tinggal daku...

One of my favourite songs to sing at any karaoke session (which is not too often, if I may say) is P. Ramlee's `Jangan Tinggal Daku'. No particular significance why I like it except that it has a soothing melody and that the song's key fall within my limited vocal range.

If this blog can sing... that would probably be the song of choice. I have been neglecting this blog for too long and who could blame it for feeling left behind. Even the last post was a feeble attempt at giving it an impression of being updated... *sigh*

It is going to be Aidiladha tomorrow.... and I can still remember our qurbani celebrations of last year. It is a bit quiet for this year.

I am still working on getting things in order on the work front.... which explains part of the reason for silence in this blog. Hopefully things will work out soon so that I can get back into the rhythm of writing. Thanks to some friends and readers who dropped me a message saying that they are missing me. Seganlah pulak I dibuatnya... heheheh...

Anyway, just a small point to highlight before I end this post... I've just noticed that the Malay word `tinggal' carries two meanings that are distinctly opposite. It can mean `leave'... as is in `Don't leave me...', the translation of this post's title. It can also mean `stay'... as in `Anda tinggal di mana?', translated to `Where do you stay?'

Hmmm.... so should I leave or should I stay?

Selamat Hari Raya Korban to all friends. May all your sacrifices be amply rewarded...

Saya pun sudah jarang update blog saya. Too much FB agaknya.

Selamat Hari Raya Qurban, Pak Oldstock ya!

Oldstock said...

Pat,

Seems like the present lack of self-confidence is the main reason why I'm asking :-)

Oldstock said...

Salam raya korban to you too Verse. Sorry haven't been around to your place lately. I'm so out of date... you really got hitched, huh? My congratulations and sincere best wishes.

So bila nak kenalkan Mr Ahan?

Oldstock said...

Justiffa,

I think I'll be happier if I stay. But that doesn't guarantee that I'll be more hard-working, hehe..

Salam aidiladha to you too...

Oldstock said...

Hliza,

Betul tu... memang terkena demam P. Ramlee kat Astro.

Balik raya ke rumah mak kat Singapore kejap. Next post will be about the qurban over there.

Oldstock said...

Dr Bubbles,

Yes, too much FB is another reason. But don't tell anybody else :-)

jabishah said...

Oldstock said...

Hi Ja, long time no see... actually also long time me not drop by at your place, hehe..

Yeah, FB been taking too much of our time kan? Maybe one day I'll write about the difference between effbeeing and blogging.

You take care too..
