i just read Ortega y Gasset’s Idea of a Generation and the related chapters in Man and Crisis and SERIOUSLY. it is there right in front of my eyes all this time and why did i not notice something so obvious like the fact that in any historical present, there are different generations shaped by the past accessing and living the present into the future? and how they are not successive but contesting?
in any case, thank you Ortega, you have made my night.

Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere is so good, why have i not read this way earlier in my life??
The Malay Dilemma is a horribly flawed book. It basically makes no logical sense. I can’t believe people can still buy into it.
We are on the brink of being unable to stand each other BUT WHY do i still get damn accurate spider sense vibes about your presence/future presence. And WHY do i get this strong sense that you actually want to speak to me.
How about: no. Kau ingat aku ada hati ke nak berbual dgn kau, tgk muka kau pun aku belum terasa nak tengok sey.

Satu kata yang bijaksana
Seandainya kau tak mengaku
Dan bila tiba saatnya ku pergi lagi
Ku perlu engkau memahami
Ku hanya ingin melunaskan sesuatu janji"
