Feelings Unfelt

She feels disappointment.
She feels abandoned.
She feels discarded.
She think it's silly.
But she feels used.
She feels disposed.
She feels oppressed.
So many feelings but yet her feelings suppressed. 
A true pretender or a born actor? 
She feels so much but yet doesn't know how to feel.

New Immigration Office at Sentul

Today, we went to the Immigration at Jalan Duta to renew our passports. By the way, the Duta Immigration is called Jabatan Imigresen Wpkl on the GPS which made me a bit confused when I tried searching for it on the GPS.

We planned to have our photos taken there so when we found the place, we went to get our photos taken first. Then at the photo taking shop, I wanted to photocopy my IC but the photographer was so honest she informed me that for renewing passport we don't have to give any photocopies of our IC. She could have charged me RM1 for photocopying and I would have paid but I guess there are still honest people in this world. hehe :) oh ya, and you don't even need to fill in any forms for renewing your passport. I don't know about new applications though. But the website still says you need to so my mum printed some forms and I filled them up at midnight last night only to have them thrown away today. boo.

Anyway, we were kinda surprised to see the immigration office full of people cos we heard some people say that very few people know about this one here cos it's relatively new but i guess we were a bit the time we went to get a number, the officer said that they only give out 200 numbers a day and that there are no more numbers to give out. She told us that we could go to the one at Sentul which opens till 10pm EVERY single day.

We were told to look out for the Sentul LRT station and UTC Sentul. I didn't bother to ask what UTC stands for. We couldn't find any UTC signs but luckily there were a few policemen in a van outside the station so I got down to ask them.

The policemen said look out for UTC too. So we finally managed to get there and it turns out that UTC Sentul is a Pusat Transformasi Bandar. The immigration is in the building itself. It's called Jabatan Imigresen Cawangan UTC Sentul.

This is how the building looks like from the outside:

It is situated opposite some apartment flats.

This UTC is actually like an indoor pasar pagi with shops and stalls selling all sorts of things. When you walk in, I suggest you look for the escalator somewhere in the middle and head to the first floor. 

Escalator at 1st floor

When you reach the first floor, you'll see a mini balai polis in front of you.

Police Station

When you reach the 1st floor, just turn to your left and walk towards the back. The immigration office is just there. By the way, it is situated on the same floor as the food court.

I really suggest you go to this immigration for a few reasons. Firstly, it's new (opened only about a month ago, meaning Mar 2013) so not many people know about this place and there was practically only 4 people ahead of us when we got a number. Secondly, you won't be bored cos you can go jalan-jalan around the place and eat from the wide selection of stalls both halal and non-halal. Thirdly, it opens till 10pm every day. Yes even Sunday. Not sure bout public holidays though.

It was actually a blessing in disguise that we didn't get a number at Duta cos if we did, we wouldn't have gotten out passports renewed as fast as we did even though we had to go to Sentul instead. They told us we needed to wait 1 hour but we received our new passports in about 45 minutes!

Therefore, if you need the exact GPS coordinates to get to this Jabatan Imigresen Sentul, here they are! :
N 03°10'52.0"   E101°41'52.8"

Here's the phone number in case you need to ask anything:
03-4040 0108 / 0643

I would love to hear from you if you go to this Immigration to get your passport done after reading this post. Let me know how long it took to get it done. :)

Tata :)
ps: Sorry I don't have the address. Only the GPS coordinates. :)

Can't Change Things

There are some things in life you can't change. It's only human nature to question why some things should happen to you. And sometimes you can be too sucked in to these negative thoughts which may overcome you. Before you know it, a tsunami of sad thoughts come into your mind and you find yourself being sad again.

I sometimes question if that happened to bring me good in some way or was it to punish me?
I'm a believer of "everything that happens is good" because I believe that we can derive some good from almost everything that happens. But it is difficult sometimes as I am only human.

What would you do if someone scarred you for life?
What if they said it was unintentional but you found out that they could have prevented it but chose to turn a blind eye instead?

Would you take revenge?
Would you make sure they learned their lesson?
Would you do all you can to make sure they don't ever let others be a victim of your same fate?
Would you just keep on burying yourself in thoughts and wishes of turning back time?

We all know deep inside that some things just cannot be changed and we must move on. But do we really move on when we decide to? CAN we really? YES we CAN but can anything that person EVER do make it up to you?
Can anything they give you actually take your sadness away?
Can a thousand apologies help you forget?
Can you or maybe WILL you ever be the same person before it happened?

You say you can move on. You say it's probably no big deal and you don't care. But somewhere deep inside, you do care! You know it's horrible! You know they have caused you to view the world differently! and the world to view YOU differently! They have let something happen to you that has changed you as a person fprever! They have changed you without your permission!

It's hard. I know. But we should ALWAYS TRY. Try to make the best out of everything. Definitely easier said than done. I'm no fool. But is there a chance of moving on if we don't at least try?

Now the question is. Should you accept their sincere or even insincere apology and move on? They obviously try to make amends for their own selfish reasons but should you bother about their true selfs?
Should you just take it and move on for your own benefit? For your sanity?

An apology is never enough. It can never fix things because sometimes we don't want things fixed. We just want them to never have happened. But no one can really do that can they?

I read a very motivational email today from TUT. It went like this:

It's as if everyone has a built-in, happiness-now button, which can instantly change how they feel, no matter what's going on in their lives. 

But for many, most of the time, they prefer not to push it. 

Go on, push it real good - 
    The Universe

Good thing, huh, since we never could get the do-over button to work.

So we should ALL push our happiness-button now! Because we can never ever 'do things over'.

I hope everyone suffering on the inside gets to push their happiness-now button.
Love you all. :)
Have a good night's sleep world. :)
