To Whom It May Concern

Amongst Abang Idin's current favourite songs is No More Sorrow by Linkin Park.

Trash? Too loud? Who thinks the rock music young people listen to are trash & loud? Read the lines below. I mean, read between the lines. Then think again! The message is very loud indeed! If only we listen ....

No More Sorrow
By Linkin Park, album Minutes to Midnight

Are you lost
In your lies
Do you tell yourself I don't realise
Your crusade a disguise
Replaced freedom with fear
You trade money for lives
I'm aware of what you've done

NO ....
No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

I see pain
I see need
I see liars and thieves abused power with greed
I had hope
I believed
But I'm beginning to think
That I've been deceived
You will pay for what you've done

Thieves and hyprocrites

No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced

Thieves and hypocrities

No more sorrow
I've paid for your mistakes
Your time is borrowed
Your time has come to be replaced
Your time has come to be erased ....

Pesan ibu (1) :
Siapa makan cili dia yang terasa pedas

Pesan ibu (2) :
Tepuk dada tanya selera

Pesan ibu(3) :
For the young ones; Sit up straight, don't slouch, not good for your posture.
For the wise ones; Sit up straight, don't slouch, not good for the brittled back bone.
For those 'in office'; Put your seat in an upright position, fasten your seatbelt ... we (you?) are landing shortly.

- not so young, not so old.
- in an upright position, cautious of the stormy weather

yesss...give it to them, ibu. GIVE IT TO THEM..hihi...

rock and roll does not necessarily promote drugs and orgies and stuff, heck NO.

Fat Mike and Billie Joe of NOFX and Greenday respectively has been Iraq war's biggest critics and even performs for free in campaigns to promote peace and unity.

so abg idin, Rock on, buddy.

IBU said...

Yes kerp, a lot more in my pouch waiting to be unzipped!

Looks (& sound) may be deceiving.

By the way, if you see a car passing by with an 11 yr old boy seated next to her mom, both heads banging to the same tune .... it could be Abg Idin and Ibu... hahaha....

simah said...

sapa cakap linkin park tak best...? they rock! go abang idin! i pun gila linkin park heheh

in fact masa kat kl tower the last time i balik mesia... i saw them up close n personal as they were waiting for their cue to enter the tower tunnel...

so ni kira all ur kids memang thier orang punya posture straight jer la ni yek? hehehe ur main important legacy to the kids..*dont slouch!* hehehe
ok la tu... it affects the self confidence... i cnnot do what u did to ur kids...

take care :0)
gambar abang idin n hafiz mana? ..esp hafiz.... nak tunjuk kat hatice ehem hahahahahahahah

IBU said...

So simah, u r still in the young people category la....hehe.

Up close & personal with linkin park? Whoaaa... cool. X minta autograf ke? I couldn't go la that time. Pregnant! X nak humiliate linkin park, makcik rock mana la gi tgk concert dia nih? kena standby ambulance pulak nanti!

About posture tu, saja lah pesan. dok mengadap pc selalu ni pun boleh jadi hunch-back. hehehe...

ADIEJIN said...

you rowkkk you rowkkk...cayalah. ( sitting up real straight ni)

Mummy Rizq said...

Read about you and Ameer... So... the cute. Rizq learnt a lot from the BArney CD. tapi dispoilkan oleh DVD Mr Bean yang mummy & daddy dia beli...

Mior Azhar said...

oooh that's deep really. But linkin park is not my cup of tea. Tak tahan telinga lah bingit. But rock on Idin!!!

zabs said...

Salam Ibu,
Thank you for pointing it out to us. Bukan macam lagu2 penyanyi kita yang asyik tentang cinta, kasih dan sayang lelaki/wanita saja. They have a lot to learn from these Rockers.

U.Lee said...

Hello Ibu, regret I have not heard this song before. I guess I'm more the oldies kind, like incik Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis, Connie Francis kind. But yes, the lyrics are nice as what you inserted.
Your Pesan Ibu is very good. Makes sense.
I had a peep at your "Ameer" and this I will say to you, Ibu....
being a mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in any field, since the payment is pure love.
You have a nice day, Ibu. UL.

D said...

Ibu.. Ibu... (to the tune of the song),
it's been soooo long since I came here (hopped and hopped but no updates for so long!). Love that entry on Ameer's reading lessons - err, think you should follow instructions next time! And, Istanbul with Simah looked fantabulous!! In short, WOW!

Salam ibu:

Linkin park? Laa ingat ada central park saja. nampak sangat saya ni ketinggalan zaman.

Pi Bani said...

Dah tua-tua ni cannot sit up straight lah. Dah terbiasa slouch sikit masa duduk. If I force myself to sit up straight, rasa macam ghobot pulak...

IBU said...


Yes, yes...ibu rocks! err... rocks the cradle la... :)

Mummy Rizq,

Oh yes, the purple dino! I love u, u love me ... dia dah mintak tree house ke belum?

IBU said...


Bingit telinga ya... hehehh... therefore the wise one category...


Yang pasal cinta sayang jer yg tak kena censor... abih camno?

-us- said...

assalammualaikum ...

dear ibu idin ...

IBU said...


Those maybe oldies but evergreen definitely. Yes, the lowest paid if not paid at all yet the highest rewarded occupation is indeed one called "mother".

Thanks U.Lee, u r welcome onboard here anytime at all.


Ya lorr... hibernating for a long time. Bz. Shall remember to stick to the instruction next time, haha.

More istanbul pics yet to be shared, bila la nak post x tau ler...

IBU said...


Actually, it is homage to Lincoln Park of Santa Monica, a coastal city in western LA County, California USA. How do I know this? Ehehehe... No! NO! I am not a hard-core-new-metal-rocking-ibu. Just googled up and found it in Wikipedia .... hehehe...

Bukan ketinggalan zaman TA, tapi perintis zaman...

IBU said...

Kak Pi,

Eh! Female robot wearing a hijab? COoooolll!!!


W'kumsalaam wbt. Thanks for dropping by.
