Too Many To Choose

After playing Persona 3 Portable for 8 days straight, and total of around 60 hours, I will end playing it by at most another 3 days. I am at the last part of the game and about to confront the last bosses.

But my old habit gets to me again. I stopped playing it. This is kinda normal for me if I knew a game I played is going to end. I don't like to end a game, since, well, it's going to end! I don't have any particular reasons, and I think it is one of my bad habits.

If I can think of one reason, it would be because there are a lot of things to do at the end of a game, especially JRPGs like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Shadow Hearts, and in this case, Persona 3 Portable. In P3P, the game has its own calendar, and you progress the in-game days and months. Now that I at the final month, there are a lot of things that I can do. Social Links, side quests, and optional bosses are some of them. When I think about many things to do, I kinda turned off. That's why I don't really like playing games that open up a lot like Grand Theft Auto IV. Not saying that GTA IV is a bad game, it just that I am not keen of open world games. When I have too many choices, I usually looked away.

I hope that I don't make the same habit in real world. Now that I think about it, I did it once, and it is one of the big and important decision/choices.

It was during 2008, after I had received my SPM result, and I need to decide where I should study next. My result was enough to get me to apply a lot of different scholarships. But what I did was I only applied for one scholarship. My reason was that I am too lazy to apply to different scholarship and I didn't want to choose. I get a good scold from my mother after that, but I am lucky enough to received the scholarship (convertible loan) that I applied.

What I written so far has deviated from what I want to write originally, but, owh well, what the hell. At least I know that I hate making choices, but I can't keep being like this forever. I may not be as lucky as I was in the future.

..Off to finishing Persona 3 Portable


  1. you hate making choices but you did give me some choices.
    aci ke?

  2. With me don't like making choices doesn't mean I will think what others feel when I give them choices.

    Just like when you don't like others to hit you but you like to hit others. (weak example though)

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…

Death in the Community

All of my housemates returned to their parents' house this weekend since we have public holiday on Monday. I stayed because my mother is not home and I have exam on Tuesday.

I don't mind being alone (isn't it weird for an attention seeker?), but it is too quiet in the house so I went to the nearest surau for Zuhur prayer. To my surprise, there were a lot of people there, and the main prayer room is full, compared to the usual only 3-4 rows of jemaah.

The prayer went as usual, and I think I had more peace being surrounded by people (hoho). After the prayer, the imam announced that we will be making a prayer for the recently deceased (solat jenazah). No wonder there are a lot of people.

Looking at the scene, I can't help but remember the day when my father passed away. His body was carried from Kluang, Johor to Shah Alam, and brought to a surau nearby for solat jenazah. Today's event reminded me that a community is very important for our well-being. Just imagine, ran…
