Thanks Salak, I like this song & its one of my favorites...kinda make me young again.
Anyway he still got the touch!

Salak said...

Let's thank Taylor, CT!

True, he's good at his genre.

masterwordsmith said...

Terima kasih kerana pos ini yang merupakan lagu kegemaranku sejakku berumur 15 tahun. Sebenarnya, lagu ni tak begitu susah dimainkan...kecuali jikalau Salak ingin mengikuti setiap corak 'plucking' yang digunakan oleh Taylor.

Hampir setiap baris lagu ini penuh dengan maksud yang penuh dengan perasaan persahabatan.

Diharap semua peminat blog Salak akan mengalami jenis persahabatan yang segini.

Sekian, terima kasih!

Salak said...

Paula, I pandai sikit-sikit aje!

Bolehlah main untuk kopi-o satu! :)

Jong said...

Thanks Salak, that's an extremely lovely song, I love it! But hey, James Taylor ...hmmmm, he looks so familiar, where's Bean?

Jong said...

Salak,

I thought you are supposed to entertain us with your guitar? What happened? Comeon, but make sure you don't try your sneaky stunt again and close your mouth. :D

Salak said...

Well, Jong, you get your best Ipoh Coffee, and then we can do wonders with guitar among friends.

Bean would like it. I expect shrek would, too. He prefers the Ventures! :D

Jong said...

Salak,
Are you going to change your blog name to Salaktrek? How to be Salaktrek Club then? :D

Salak said...

Well, it sounds quite good. What am I suppose to track? Big foot?

I'll mull it over. Look for inspirasi.

I think my muse "merajuk" ! :D

The year is not over yet. Even B: sh has his 2 left feet tied to his chair. Maybe I'll work on "zero" (0): US interests are going zero, Yen has gone back again from minus to 0 positive.

The Arabs thought about "0". Its an Arabic word. And they finally found God! Think about that!

Maybe I should go on Wordpress?

Jong said...

That's what I had been telling you all along. This blogspot sucks, must press so many times and sometimes the comments disappeared into thin air.

Anonymous said...

I hope Google fall off their chair when they read ur comments comments!!!

Jong said...

Let them be lah, sucks. That's why I am reluctant to post my comments on blogspot. They just put me off.
I am extremely comfortable with wordpress, so user friendly.

Sounds familiar eh?!

shrek said...

Salak

Bujang said...

Thanks, shrek!

I had that on old bookmark in old laptop not fully transferred over. Will bookmark this.

Maria Elena ... that's way back late 60's early 70's when they played them over the radio, err like the Carpenters' :D

Am listening to Marie Lou! Hey! That's boleh lah!

shrek said...

I had a glimpse of Din's Cik Cun. Really cun one. I guess he's found a new friend and so we old friends are left by the wayside.
Don't be too hard on him. He's busy balancing his time between PKR, the Blog and Cik Cun. Hope he'll be happy with his Cik Cun.

Anonymous said...

Nothng like a pomelo or two to cheer you up!

Mr Bean said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7hDnKtc9oM&feature=related

I love Carole King. James Taylor looks too much like me :)

This is for Jong. If you feel alone and lonely, just call me. I'm only a phone call away! I'll come running to see you! Winter, Fall, Spring or Summer - I'll be there!

Mr Bean said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFSMSDyXF7A&feature=related

This will be the song I'll be singing to Jong the night I see her. Another Carole King's best.

Mr Bean said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzPUfZ32GLw&feature=related

So Jong!

Will you still love me tomorrow? With or without the pomelos??

Mr Bean said...

I will then say "Goodbye" to her with this song:

Whenever I'm weary from the battles that rage
in my head
You make sense of madness when my sanity
hangs by a thread
I lose my way but still you seam to understand
Now and forever
I will be your man

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vthNBNqAEQY&feature=related

Mr Bean said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJjKDGluoYg&feature=related


So Jong,


How many dreams will end?
How long can I pretend?
How many times will love pass me by,
Until I find you again?

shrek said...

Bean
The song "When will I see you again" by Three Degrees is more appropriate for Jong.

Mr Bean said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHoDax1WJuQ&feature=related

Shrek,

Careful you might get what you wish for. What if she starts singing the Three Degrees’ “Dirty Old Man??

Jong said...

Whoa, flirting in cyberspace huh?!!

Salak said...

3 dirty old men? Nah!

3 dirty old chipmunks! :D

Jong said...

Heard you three old chipmunks have been monkeying, throttling him and hurling stones at Dinjerk's blog eh? :D

Salak said...

Hey, Bean!

Belum tidur ke, Lu?

Not to worry Caroline Kennedy will warm up NYC soon!

Is that a blessing or what?

We're counting our small blessings here! ;)

Salak said...

Chipmunks don't monkey aroundlah, Jong! They unearth your sunny side up! :D

Jong said...

Wow, that's sharp! But jerks just can't get it can they? :D

Jong said...

Thanks guys for those lovely songs, evergreen all the way for melting moments! :D !!!

Jong said...

Why Caroline Kennedy, is she any different from Mukhriz, Najib and Krishammudin? - kids of their PM fathers? - their godgiven right to cut queues?

Salak said...

Don't know, lor!

You have 4-jokers in a pack. They'll deal them out soon.

You better read up on the K's people. Are they royalty or waht?

Salak said...

Hey Bean!

Give us an angle on Carol K!

shrek said...

Here's the DJ serenading Cik Cun di Cianjur
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPIly9UlZEc

Jong said...

hahahahaa! lol Looks like that jerk alright! Silly and stooopid, still so naive after 3 good lessons cannot learn! :D

Salak said...

Ooo Ha!!!

Hey Shrek,

Manalah you dapat senandung ni! :D

You ingat "Midin" Kuching ke? :D

How about Ruth Sahayana, huh?

CT said...

Hi, Salak...I’m enjoying myself reading all the comments from your friends...hope you all don’t mind:))

Salak said...

Hi CT,

You're most welcome here and share what we have and what you are inclined to extend us.

CT is from Singaland south of the border from Johore!

Mr Bean said...

Jong, has to remember Carole King's

"It's (never) too late"

Yes, call me (collect call) and I'll come running - winter, fall, spring, or summer.

Mr Bean said...

ooops forgot the song!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-DiYZcHxuE&feature=related

Salak said...

Mr Bean,

Err ... I know you mengurat!

But if you ask hard enough, somebody needs some 'urut'! Ada orang jatuh teruk buntut! Kesian lah!

Jong said...

What's too late eh?

Jong said...

This is good from Carole King! I love the beat - "I feel the earth move"!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=An4dD7wOXtk&feature=related

Mr Bean said...

Hey Salak,

It's safer for you and me and Jong and Shrek, that I 'mengorat' Jong than I mengorat you!! :)

Mr Bean said...

Also the last time I checked Shrek and Jong are not gay and lesbian.

Anonymous said...

There's this posting on DJ's blog. What do you guys think?



"Din Merican, you need to offer the olive branch to Jong instead. Your Halimah is a transient who contributes nothing to this blog beyond mere platitudes but Jong has been a staunch cheerleader for PKR."

Mr Bean said...

"Give us an angle on Carol K" Salak

Caroline Kennedy?? Oh, I love her eyes, nose and lips.

Salak said...

Beano,

I'll be honest with you. I don't think any more! I only know I'm in love with Ruth Sahanaya! :))

So that means you stay away from me! ;)

Salak said...

Last I heard, she's unattached. So ada jalan for you, the most eligble cuckoo in NYC! :))

Mr Bean said...

I like making love to strong and powerful women so long as they are not on top.

But don't get me wrong. "Strong' and "powerful" is not the same as "domineering".

Salak said...

Oh, I see!

I want a companion, too! Not a mother who doesn't know how to show how to cuci sarong!

Anyway, I only know, I love Ruth Sahanaya. I hope she's awake, Beano!

Jong said...

What olive branch are you talking about? I don't need it.
You are at it again Mr Bean! Either you just don't get it or you won't give up. Forget him my friend, let's just move on.

The guy's too arrogant and he owes that 'fly by night munafiq' too much to antagonaise her. What's the point, didn't you read he told Shrek he has nothing to apologise for? He does not need us whom he viewed as frustrated inconsequential beings hovering around his blog for some "penthouse therapy". With friends like him, we don't need enemies, do we?!!

Salak said...

So Beano,

This Catherine sounds really all ready to plunge into NY seat for two years! How does that help Obama? And crisis or four years?

They been throwing jokes about parents getting Xmas presents of pictures of a new neck tiea only "not the tie" itself!

Jong said...

You mean Caroline? You must really be in love. :D

Jong said...

I guess she must really be a big supporter of Obama. She has inherited so much wealth - from her parents and her brother John JR who passed away in a plane accident.

Salak said...

Oops! Yes I mean Carol K!

That's easier to remember! Why was I thinking of Catherine, Beano? So what good will it do us? All the Datuks and Datins would now want to emulate Carol K!

I should be thinking of Ruth! :))

Jong said...

Emulate what? In Malaysia, those 'datos and datins' are cronies, ampu-bodeks, just want to collect rentals to enrich themselves, throw their weight around and expect 'inconsequential beings' to kiss their left hands!

Mr Bean said...

Jong,

You sound like you’re still hurt by it.

But remember what the Scriptures say about ‘forgiveness’.

"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."(Mt 6:14-15)

Salak said...

True Beano! Can forgive! Maybe difficult to forget!

It's amazing how forgetful Mahathir is! ;)

Couple of days ago he remembered and told the press some judges were lobbying for positions when he was in office. He remembered!

He could knocked his head against a flower pot or something!

Salak said...

I think Jong knocked off already Beano! Said she had a fall doing kung fu! :(

As for the jerk, forgetting the whole thing would be forgiving of some sort. Up to Jong! The dinner-ruiner is another! You might like that one better! Haw! Haw! ;)

shrek said...

Visited the DJ blog and notice average 7 comments, mostly from Bean, Tean and AriffDanial. Just wonder what happened to the "serious" people doing serious discourse, hope not inter---course.
Guess not many interested in serious discourse without light banter and humor.

Salak, do you like Syaharani's singing style? She has a CD Syaharani Loce out several years back 10-4

Mr Bean said...

Salak,

I can understand if that bitch only mentioned me and Shrek for having taken advantage of the host's hospitality - but Jong?? If at all, Jong was merely responding (a measured response at that) to our postings. She was in fact ignoring most of it.

So I think it is this jealousy thing between women la!! She focussed on Jong in her subsequent postings. But it is not like we have been polutting her blog space. So what's she whining about?? Could she be that Cik Cun?? LOL.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Datuk was always MIA and Din Merican has been there to lend his shoulders?? :)

Mike said...

Oh yeah??

Do you think she'd make a good deep throat??

Deep Throat?? Does she swallow?

Do you think you can make a banana 'grow' in your mouth? Then watch this!

Jong said...

Dear Bean,

At last you got it! The only person who had 'legitimate reasons' to complain on Din Merican's blog was ME. I was the 'victim' and the butt of your silly jokes rather than an accomplice!

Yeah that datin(no capital when it's not her due) just wanted to zero down on me, I was her focus all along and remember that tudunged "Nur" woman who went to his PKR HQ office for a walk-in interview?

The sad thing was Din Merican ignored that part, he didn't see it? Damn him! Or he got himself so twined round her finger? If he had been fair and spoke up and asked her to keep "Jong" out of it, then things would have been different. I would then have come out and say it's OK, all done in jest, a lil overboard at times but nevermind, look at it from different angles, have an open mind and enjoy a good laugh. Everything would then have been ok.

Well now I'm beginning to suspect if that gigigirl pix on her website, is the young version of this "datin". Someone emailed me recently, said the gigigirl is 'selling' on Din Merican's blog, see her website link there with her young pix. She continued even for her at that age, she would look "Angeline Jolie" too! :D

I think the whole thing boils down to his ego being bruised on "Cik Cun" thread, go back and read again. :D

Salak said...

[Salak, do you like Syaharani's singing style? - shrek]

shrek,

I honestly haven't heard much of Syaharani but she has a distinct style. We know singers better in concert where they extend, like pulling it apart all the way! ;) Then you can better see their style. She maybe a different kettle of fish.

Ruth is an excellent vocal artiste and fantastic performer. Syaharani can be artsy!

Mr Bean said...

Take it easy, Jong! You're all riled up!

Anonymous said...

Don't exactly know what you people are talking about but I found this comment in response to Mr Bean's.

"What olive branch are you talking about? I have not offended any one who writes to me on this blog.—Din Merican

Jong said...

Yes I am, peeved over that 'bodoh sombong'!

Jong said...

Bleddy joker, don't be another pain! As if we care if that dinjerk reads this blog. If we dare to write, we are never afraid whoever reads us here, why should we? The concerned should be malu, not us!

Jong said...

For his own good, he should distance himself from this blog, it will not be to his own good afterall he has nothing left from us. That's my brutal honesty. Too bad, you asked for it jerk!

shrek said...

Guys
DeanoBeano has said his piece. Jong has also vowed not to visit DJ's blog. So let's move on.Why let this spat roll over onto Salak's.
Din doesn't want anymore pomelos and doughnuts. He wants serious discourse. So if we can't write serious discourse stay away from his blog.
The world is wide open for us to explor. Remember the 1,000 places I need to visit before I die? So far I'm at 10, 990 more to go.

Mr Bean said...

"Bleddy joker, don't be another pain! As if we care if that dinjerk reads this blog." Jong

Whar are you talkin' bout and who are you talkin' too?? I'm confused!

Mr Bean said...

Shrek,

Salak is oblivious to everything that is happening. He's enjoying the company of this Ruth.

But why the interest in Indonesian damsels? They are feminists i.e. not unlike the bra-burning feminists of the 60s in the States, and very materialistic too. They are fun to watch but woe betide those who are looking forward to having serious relationship.

Jong said...

Whoever hides behind that "Anon", who else?!

Salak said...

Who? Me?

I'm having a papaya for lunch.

And singing Ruth! :D

Salak said...

Sorry Bean!

Not my Ruth! You got it wrong, Man!

Mr Bean said...

Salak,

Talking about Indon lasses, it is not only fun to watch but fun to pin their bottoms too - esp when they belong to Inul Daratista! :)

Mr Bean said...

ooops pinch

Mr Bean said...

Wow! Jong!

I sure don't want to be around when you lose it!

Mr Bean said...

He says you're not around cos you're having your Christmas hols. Go check it out!

Salak said...

Bean,

With the cash crisis on, Inul is among the few things that keep Indonesia warm!

If you pinch Azlinas' rear, maybe APs will fall out! Rafidah Azis has many strapped around her waist and many are going to drop out! ;)

Mr Bean said...

Wa??

Rafidah Aziz has nothing but spare tyres around her waist!

Jong said...

Who's he, my labrador? It's a she, just turned 5 years.

You rubbed in it then now you tell me you don't want to be around when I lose it, huh?
