I’ve been sick for slightly more than 2 weeks now and I suspect it’s going to last a few more. Then I suddenly realise what this might be. It’s the Trial Ustaz has been warning us about.

“You will be Tested,” that was how he lightly phrased it.

No naughty ghosts playing their dirty little tricks. Oh, no no no no no no! For me, it’s going to be prolonged illness. I’m hacking and coughing my guts out as if my life depended on it. I have a fever that comes and goes. My nose is like a leaky faucet at times. But as P. Ramlee and his cohorts chanted in the movie Pendekar Bujang Lapok-


Going to work is another Trial. Despite Breathing, I’m so drained at the end of every work day that sometimes I skip Breathing (Hahaha! Naughty me!) because I was so damn tired!

Sick as I am though, I managed to force myself to catch two action flicks last Saturday afternoon (because if I prefer the full cinema experience) before they stopped showing them. Notice that I call them flicks because in my opinion, that’s all they are.

Catwoman and The House of Flying Daggers were aesthetically pleasing, but the story leaves much to be desired. I still have I, Robot on my list. Hope I’ll be lucky enough to catch that next week.
