Spicy Chicken

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
6 chicken breasts, with skin on

Prepare a grill over high heat. Rub the chicken with the olive oil, chili powder, salt, and cumin. Place the chicken on the grill, skin side down, and cook for 5 minutes. Turn and cook for another 5 minutes. Let rest for 7 minutes.

In just another few minutes, you can toss together this simple couscous salad:

Marcus's Summer Couscous

2 cups couscous
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped scallions
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
3 tablespoons olive oil
juice from 1 lemon
salt and pepper

Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Place the couscous in a large bowl. Pour the boiling water over the couscous and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit for 10 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork and add the tomatoes, scallions, chili powder, cumin, olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

To add an extra-special touch to this meal, slice 2 heads of romaine into quarters and brush the cut sides with olive oil. Place on the grill and grill for 2 minutes, until the leaves begin to wilt.

To serve, spread the couscous on a platter. Place the chicken and romaine on the bed of couscous, and serve with lemon wedges.

You're a falling star,you're the get away car.
You're the line in the sand when I go too far.
You're the swimming pool, on an August day.
And you're the perfect thing to say.

And you play it coy, but it's kinda cute.
Ah, when you smile at me you know exactly what you do.
Baby don't pretend, that you don't know it's true.
Cause you can see it when I look at you.

[Chorus:]And in this crazy life,
and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing.
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

You're a carousel, you're a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You're a mystery, you're from outer space,
You're every minute of my everyday.

And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,
And you know that's what our love can do.

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.

So, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
So, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, you make me sing.
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.
You're every song, and I sing along.'Cause you're my everything.Yeah, yeah

"Call Me Irresponsible"
Call me irresponsible
Call me unreliable
Throw in undependable, too
Do my foolish alibis bore you?
Well, I'm not too clever, I
I just adore you
call me unpredictable
Tell me I'm impractical
Rainbows, I'm inclined to pursue
Call me irresponsible
Yes, I'm unreliable
But it's undeniably true
That I'm irresponsibly mad for you
Do my foolish alibis bore you?
I'm not too clever, I
I just adore you
Call me unpredictable
Tell me that I'm so impractical
Rainbows, I'm inclined to pursue
Go ahead call me irresponsible
Yes, I'm unreliable
But it's undeniably true
I'm irresponsibly mad for you
You know it's true
Oh, baby it's true

My Apology to you.....

The dictionary defines a hypocrite as someone who “pretends to be better than he really is or to be pious, virtuous without really being so.”

So here goes nothing, I am terribly sorry for getting over board on my comments and my blog. I am not a hypocrite and I tend not to be one, I admit I write mostly about you in that particular entry.

Have to admit, was going to write one nasty blog when I read the one in your friendster (u r in my list of fav blog eversince), and condemning me. It does not happened last time. What gets me into writing this particular one I do not know? Try reading something that people says about you... In which that person does not know a tiny bit of things that really happened. I did not write bad things back to her last time, I guess I know how she felt when she read my entry. I am glad that I don’t react like what she did today last time. I’d be a horrible horrible person.

But I am sorry for being such a busy body in your life..
I am so sorry, and may you have a happy life.

And baby… I am sorry too… I’ll stop complaining..

and this one is for me... i am soo angry just now.... dah jadi mcm typical perempuan melayu ngahahahaha well... thats it... i'm off.

"Sifat pemarah itu berasal daripada sifat sombong (ego). Lagi besar ego seseorang lagi besar marahnya. Ini berkaitan pula dengan kedudukan seseorang. Kalau tinggi kedudukan seseorang, besar pangkatnya, banyak hartanya, ramai pengikutnya, maka akan tinggilah ego seseorang dan akan menjadi-jadilah pemarahnya. Sebaliknya jikalau kurang segalanya, maka akan kuranglah egonya dan akan kurang jugalah pemarahnya. Sifat pemarah ini ada pada hampir semua orang seperti juga hasad dengki. Kenapa kita mesti marah ? Telah berkata Mujahid di dalam sebuah bait syair : "Takdir Allah telah putus dan putusan Allah telah terjadi. Istirehatkan hati dari kata-kata "Barangkali" dan "Kalau".

a) Mula-mula kita perlu malu dengan Allah s.w.t akan segala tindak-tanduk kita. Allah memerhatikan segala perlakuan dan sikap biadab kita.
b) Bila datang rasa hendak marah, ingatlah kita ini hanyalah manusia yang hina.
c) Banyakkan berdiam diri dan berdoa kepada Allah agar Allah selamatkan kita daripada sifat marah.
d) Hendaklah ingat kesan daripada sifat marah itu mungkin akan membawa kepada permusuhan dan pembalasan dendam dari orang yang anda marahi.
e) Cuba bayangkan betapa buruknya rupa kita ketika kita sedang marah. Ianya lebih buruk daripada perlakuan seekor binatang jikalau anda di dalam keadaan yang marah.
f) Apabila datang marah, banyakkan baca Ta'awwuz ( A'uzubillahi minas Syaitanirrajim ) kerana marah itu datangnya daripada syaitan.
g) Apabila marah sedang memuncak, ambil wudhu keranawudhu dapat menenangkan api kemarahan yang sedang membara.
h) Jikalau tidak boleh hilang marah dengan hal tersebut di atas, hendaklah tidur. Kerana ianya akan meredakan perasaan marah apabila bangkit daripada tidur
i) Tauhid kita perlu tepat. Setiap sesuatu itu datangnya dari Allah dan akan kembali kepada Allah. Kenapa kita perlu marah. Kalau kita bersalah, kita tidak suka orang memarahi kita. Maka begitulah orang lain yang melakukan kesilapan, juga tidak suka dimarahi. Tegurlah dengan lemah lembut dan kasih sayang.

adakah waktu yg tak berbatas

untukku merasa bahagia

saat-saat aku jatuh cinta

saat ku terbang jauh ke sana

selalu denganmu

kasihku selamanya

selalu denganmu

cintaku bersama

kaulah matahari dalam hidupku

dan kaulah cahaya bulan di malamku

hadirmu selalu akan ku tunggu

cintamu selalu akan ku rindu

tahukah kau diriku

tak sanggup bila kau jauh dariku

ku ingin dipelukmu selalu....
i have a crazy lunatic here!!!!
well, its been a while... talking about being too tight up with other work...
I've read someone's blog.. and somehow.. it did triggers something in my mind.... How on earth that these type of people are able to breath easilly? blamming other people and talking bout being betrayed? meeting a two timer? disloyalty... hahah doesnt the person learn enough, that he/she may be the reason y? oh maybe talking about someone who lives in the vain street.... too vain... tooo vain... ngehehehheheheh how can a person think that they are good enough for everyone..????
anyway.... i have a life.. not a good one... its a pretty clumsy life.. but i'm living it and loving it and will try to improve it....
but all in all.... life is a journey... somethings that never can be determined...
