The Great Escape

The sky is gloomy. Rain is waiting to unleash his fury.

I was thinking, is it the end, or the beginning? No answer. The situation is tensed. There are many people around me, but I can only sense soulless bodies. I can only sense anxiety. And fear. And pain.

There is always hope.

Will it happens again? I am guessing this is what playing in everyone's head. The last time it happened was not many days ago. It’s chaos. It’s dramatic. It’s sad. It gives more questions than answer. Should we take the leap of faith, or stays calm and wait for the sunshine. Nobody can answer that. Nobody.

I look at my watch. It’s 4pm. I keep telling myself we should not be bounded by time. This is the new world. We set the time, not the time set us. We want freedom! We want peace! We want liberty! Every minute is moving slower than ever. 5 minutes is like 5 hours. God, why am I being punished? Am I not a good servant?

Sky will fall. Someday.

I cannot waste anymore time. Now or never. I grabbed my haversack and look at the soulless body before turning my back to them. Goodbye my comrades. We’ll meet again. Maybe not in the same situation. But we will definitely meet again.

‘Woi Sinkar, wanna rain like that you wanna go back meh? Later jam like that day you know! Summo now only 4pm, later boss find you how?’

Failed. I rest my haversack on the desk again before resuming my duty.

I will try again. Until my next victorious escape, I will never give up.


Things To Do For Post Apocalypse

Congratulations to all of us who survived the 21 Dec 2012 acopolis acapalise apocalips apocalypse. Since none of us are dead, here is a list of suggested stuff to do:

1) Continue to pay your monthly installment. Yes, you think December is going to end everything and skip all your house loans and car loans? Now it's the time to go to the bank and settle the outstanding before they come and take away your stuff.

2) Credit transfer. Again, because it's the end you go and max out your credit card on useless stuff? Now it's the time to seek advice on how to pay that RM30,000 multi purpose gym set.

3) Say sorry. To who? To all the people you hate and because you think the end is near, you go and splash red paint on them, or their cars or their house. Or put a spider in their shoes. Or shred their important documents.  

4) Do a health check. I am sure because of the end, you went and eat all those food that you will not eat because of health reasons, like Deep-fried Sneaker Bar topped with creams and sprinkle of marshmallow with chocolate syrup.

5) Planning. On how to finish that 10 big tins of biscuits, 20 packs of instant noodles, 5 guni of rice, 24 boxes of mineral water and other similar dried food.

6) Look into the mirror. Yes, you are an idiot if you think the world will end on 21 Dec 2012.
