We dont talk much anymore....

There was a time when communication was not a problem. Anything and everything was a possibility. Now, silence reigns; conversations interupted in mid sentence, in awkward pauses.

I know not what the problem is. I have tried diagnosing the situation but to no avail. I have clung on to that cable of life that has sustained my very existence here, but the problem persists.

Everytime I try, I get 'page load error' or ' No connection'.

Will be back, when the internet and I are back on speaking terms.

In the meantime, sing this to the tune of :
"You dont bring me flowers anymore"

You dont talk to me anymore
You dont connect me to yahoo messenger
You hardly let me online
When I sign in
At the beginning of the day

I remember when
You couldn't wait to connect me
Used to let me surf and entertain me
Now after letting me enjoy you
When its good for you
And youre feelin bored
You just act cruel
And cut me off
And you dont let me ym anymore

It used to be so natural
To chat on and on forever
But used to bes dont count anymore
They just lay on the floor
til we sweep them away

And baby, I remember
All the chats and blogs that I surf
I learned how to FB
And I learned how to skype
But those were the good times
Cos connection was good
But I took you for granted
But now I don’t know why
cause you dont want to connect me anymore....


(Kak Teh raps ala Joe Flizzow - a few days with him has sort of influenced her)

I tolerated you, when you sent me spam

When all I wanted to say was damn, damn damn,

How cld u do dis, so reconnect me pleazeee,

So I cld do me work with ease,

I put up a lot with yr idiosyncrasy

Messing up my blog and and make them messy,

So put it right, and we call off the fight

Ahaaaa! Orait!

Syaer to Blogspot

Syaer to Sang Spammer

Naz in Norway said...

Aduh Kak Teh,
Mendayu dayu lagu ni :)
Jangan merajuk hati....cari je lah pengganti cepat cepat :D

Pi Bani said...

Aiseh, ni siapa yang nak kena pujuk siapa ni? Kak Teh pujuk internet or internet pujuk Kak Teh??

Word verification pulak keluar "emothi" katanya. Dia pun tengah emotional kot?

Kak Teh said...

kak elle, thanks...sejuk hati.

Naz, di mana kan ku cari ganti??? Ni pun dok kena pegang cable kuat-kuat takut terlucut and tergendla pulak!

Pi bani, memang beremothi sikit hari ni sebab dah beberapa hari internet buat hal. entah sapa dan apa yang tak kena.

Hi Kak Teh,
Have you tried clearing your cache? browsing history? check your modem? splitter? Uhmm.. a blogging friend of mine in the UK is also having similar connection problem over the last few days but I suspect hers is more of a formatting problem.

Have you checked with your Internet Service Provider?

BTW, I read your article on teenage violence in UK in the newspapers today. Scary esp with knives commonly involved.

Yes, have arrived safe and sound in KL. Very very tired. The mee bandung was not what I had envisaged. Perhaps I was thinking of mee rebus or some other noodle dish instead. Take care, Kak Teh and have a good weekend.

Kak Teh said...

wowooo andrea you're talking greek to me, cache? modem?
I have to ask expert opinion of children when they come back.

I wonder if others in Uk have same daughter had similar problem a few days ago. I have to try several times to get this published. Sigh!

kay_leeda said...

Kak Teh,

Off late Internet has been rather haywire. Have been experiencing drag in the connectivity here too.

Yup, try doing the clear cache, history thingy. Kalu still slow gak, buat kopi and cicah biskut je dulu. Tok sah stress-stress...

Mushu said...

Kak Teh! Pardon my absence from your comments column.. I still get your feeds and read them each time you update, but due to bad internet, leaving comments has been a chore. But this post... it's so funny! I bet Flizzow will be so proud. :P

Vern here, by the way. :)

ray said...

Komen Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim.

Ya. Internet kat rumah saya pun kadang lambat, kata Pak Malim sambil memeluk wombat.

Ms B said...

*LOL* my dear KT. u really bring out the sunshine!

Hopefully the glitch is temporary.

ps: almost had to go to stcokholm on short notice but luckily found a replacement. otherwise, lil one will be upset.

Kak Teh said...

Kay, internet ni macam2 terms, cache lah, cookies lah.Semuanya tak faham. But when you mentioned dunk biscuits in coffee tu adalah faham sikit.

Mushu@vern, i bet you must be very busy with your studies. and soon, i bet you will be flying the coop to study somewhere else. so, all the best. I have not heard from aunty judy as well - she too must be busy.

Ya, Joe did a lot to change my views on rap!

Kak Teh said...

Pak Malim pun ada internet, tanya kak teh yang nak tidur semenet Rupanya semua connection lambat, kata kak teh sambil nak berdebat.

Ms B, it is rather annoying as there's always something that pops up and then the connection gets disrupted. Am pulling out my hair now and about to strangle someone.

Hmmm, lama tak jumpa you and the lil one. Hope it'll be soon.

[danial][ma] said...

hej! Kak Teh...i have a connection problem too a few months ago, checked everything, the modem, the routers even tested the connection remotely...but the problem actually only the splitter! now everything ok...or maybe you can call up the provider engineer to do the checking but the engineer will not come over after you have complained so many times (this only Virgin but i dunno others like BT or Sky)...till then enjoy your connectionless life...;-)

mamasita said...

Internet buat hal eh? Takper..AG boleh buat double job there..I am very sure he'll be so glad to fill in all the talking shoes with you siang malam! Wohoooo!For him its probably an extra bonus!!Yahoooo! hahaha..."Come to me mama!" lucky devil you!hahaha

Madam Tai Tai Again said...

Kak Teh, ingat sapa la si dia yg doesn't want to talk to you anymore... Good one, Kak Teh! You are having a cold war with the internet service, huh? Geramkan when it acts up! Mcm nak campak2 aje PC or laptop.

Maya said...

Haha! you always find the humour..thats the best communication ever!

Perhaps one day the Internet might also get outdated.....what do we do then? Telepathic conferencing? :)

Anonymous said...

Kak Teh

What a clever posting. It made me smile.

Thanks. I needed this.

Kak Teh said...

Danial, i composed a reply to all the comments here but when i published - there was error again and everything was lost.
This time i tried with IE and it diagnosed something to do with TCP and something was repaired and let us how how long this will last and whether this reply will see light of day.

Kak Teh said...

mamasita, yes ada masalah besar dgn internet...we are hardly on speaking terms..hehe. It is driving me nuts. So, when are you back blogging? dah lama sangat ni bercuti.

MTT - yes, perang dingin dengan internet. I wonder what we used to do before.

Kak Teh said...

maya, telepathic conferencing wld be a good thing though I dont know how to censor what's in my head. ANd knowing both of us - we'd be conferencing all day and night!

frankdoel, thanks for the visit and I am glad i made you smile.

isabelle said...

Amboi... siap boleh rap lagi KakTeh. Tu yg mahal tu...
Hihihi :P

Mama Huptihup said...

kak teh, internet kat sini pun asyik semput2..tensen i...

Atok said...

Do u have firewall, ie Zone Alarm, Norton etc? Normally ada conflict kat situ, esp when u update Firefox.

I'm having similar prob on one of my laptops, tapi malas nak baiki, haha.

Kak Teh said...

isabelle, kenalah tunjuk serba boleh kan? hehehee!

lyana, ni lebih drp semput - meragam tak tentu arah!

atok, oh firewall pulak? macam mana tu? tolong cerita sikit!

mekyam said...


so sorry to hear abt this rocky phase of your relationship with that intractable love, kt dear. almost all of us have been there.

if you understand terengganuspeak i'd tell you to go read ag's "mat spröng, mata2 gelak" to cheer you up. hilarious!

my hub who didn't understand sepatah haram pun bawak tergelak tengok i rofl almost mental.

i've had a real sombre week too, but mat spröng sure put the spring back in my spirits.

bye now, i've got to go count how much i owe naz.

p.s. sapa2 hok pahang ccakak tenganung gilah baca cita detektif mat spröng tu. kalu ambo hok tok pèhè abih pung gguling bating suko, orè hok reti mesti kohor sangat lagi tercuit orat geli. ;D

Unknown said...

Kak Teh

Just a short one to tell you that I miss you and your writings...

Take care and keep in touch ya?

Hope you'll be back soon!!!!!!!!


pugly said...

Kak Teh, me & my internet are not on speaking terms these days. It refuses to connect. I feel like throwing it out of the house any day now.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Kesian Kak Teh tgh pegang cable? Hahha..sorry I tergelak.

Hopefully by tomorrow ok le tu ye..

DrSam said...

Kak Teh,
I think we are sharing the same feeling at the moment. Or probably worst. I am now in Jeju Island and my HP could not detect any network ever since we arrived. Totally cut out from the rest of the world. Luckily, cybercafe is my only lifeline here and your 'predicament' has somehow eased my feeling a little bit :)

Kak Teh said...

mekyam, we are still not speaking properly. Its one of those things, we sit face to face but cannot communicate!

Mat Sprong??? I will admit it here that i read the episodes, with great difficulty too but somehow i could picture the whole thing and was chuckling to myself.

Has my awang goneng morphed into a mat sprong? i dont know whether I am ready for this

Kak Teh said...

paula, thank you..will be back. The connection is bad and it sometimes does not allow me to comment! it goes dead, or play dead!

But I will come back with a vengeance!

Kak Teh said...

Pugs i wish i can throw this one out of the window but the children will be so upset as this is their birthday present to me last year - almost one year now. perhaps i should ask them for a new one.

Ida, jangan gelak. Ni kak teh dok pegang sebelah tangan, type sebelah tangan. Seksa sungguh!

Dr Sam, It cant be that bad for you. Me, just hanging on for dear life. have a good break!

Al-Manar said...

We are delighted and feel so proud to see Hannah in Rocky's Bru.
Love from Kak Mah and Abang Ngah to all, especially that gutsy 'kid'

Kak Teh said...

Thanks for the support abang ngah and kak mah. Hope she reaches the finishing line. That gutsy kid is busy training.
