Driedroses – i.Z.Z.i.e. Belog jalan dan makan. Belog perasan dan perasaan.

Seperti yang kalian sedia maklum, gua sudah mengasingkan personal Facebook page dengan segala yang berkaitan dengan belog ini.

Kepada yang tahu, personal page gua sangat terhad asalnya. Hanya untuk rakan-rakan yang gua kenali dari sekolah, matrikulasi, universitas dan juga teman-teman di kantor. Ahli keluarga jugak tidak ramai di laman Facebook gua. Jadiknya, medium itu sememangnya untuk mereka-mereka sahaja. Walaupun kurang berinteraksi, tambahan pula gua kurang aktif di Facebook namun gua tahu, masih ada yang sudi menjenguk saban waktu.

Namun demikian halnya, sejak tercetusnya fenomena Nora Elena dan kebetulan yang gua ada menulis beberapa reviews/recaps di belog makanya ramai yang turut add friends di sana. Sadar akan hakikat bahawa mungkin mereka ingin mendapatkan sebarang updates berkenaan review Nora Elena, gua pejam sebelah mata dan approved sahaja kesemuanya tanpa justifikasi.

Gua menjadi kurang senang kerna akhir-akhir ini, bukan semua yang ada dalam senarai kenalan itu adalah daripada para pembaca belog ini.

Benar, gua ini mungkin sukar didekati. Jarang jua berinterasi dengan pembaca-pembaca sekalian. Keadaan itu bertambah tidak selesa apabila ada yang hanya ingin berbual kosong dan berkenalan. Bila tidak dilayan seadanya, gua dikatakan sombong dan poyo.

Bukan kerna takut dipanggil sebegitu. Tidak. Bukan tidak mahu memberikan peluang dalam mencari kenalan baru mahupun sekadar bersembang kosong di alam maya. Tapi gua ini sememangnya begitu, lebih selesa berkomunikasi dengan kalian yang gua rasakan ada kaitan dan persamaan. Bukan sekadar random person yang hanya mahu poking-poking, tagging-tagging, flirting-flirting di laman sosial.

Kalau ada yang menebak bahawasanya gua bimbang andai pacarnya cemburu atau marah akan perkenalan di Facebook, anda silap sama sekali. Mr.K tidak pernah melarang, tidak jua cemburu seandainya gua punya kenalan lelaki di alam maya. Gua diberikan pilihan tanpa seberang kongkongan.

Oleh yang demikian halnya, gua akan menapis semua insan-insan yang ada dalam senarai teman-teman itu. Ada segelintir yang gua kenal adalah mereka yang membaca belog ini, selebihnya gua tidak pasti. Maaf andai ada yang diasingkan. Kalian bisa sahaja meninggalkan pesanan dalam PM gua.

Bagi yang ingin terus mendapatkan update terkini mengenai driedroses.wordpress.com, kalian bisa ‘like’ di laman: http://www.facebook.com/Driedroses.Izzie atau kelik sahaja di sidebar kanan dalam laman ini. Kita bisa berbicara di sana kerna tiada siapa yang akan terasa jengkel andai kita meroyankan abam Aaron, Edward Cullen, Damon Salvatore, Christian Grey, Hyde, Adi Putra, Hyun Bin, Jang Geun Suk, kanda, kanda, kanda sekaliannya  atau berkongsikan segala cherita suka dan duka. Page Driedroses – i.Z.Z.i.e adalah dibawah seliaan gua sendiri. Dan di sana segala komunikasi lebih pantas, mudah dan secara terus. Kalau gua rasakan tidak sempat untuk mencoret panjang lebar di sini, gua akan berkongsi di sana.

  1. Hi there Izzie!
    You never went beyond episode 18 of nora elena! Why not??! Your writings make pretty readings, have enjoyed them all! Missed your reviews badly, you know. Take pity from someone who’s never seen an episode it’s never screened here & you’ve been all the link we’ve ever known! Por favor Izzie! Ayudar mi! If you ever review Corazon Salvaje 1998 I will pengsan! Just like you!

    • Hi there Rosi ^.^

      *breathe in..breathe out*
      OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! U SPEAK SPANISH????!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW EXCITED I WAS WHEN READING YOUR COMMENT???

      before i go crazy, let me answer you first. regarding Nora Elena, yes i never went beyond episode 18. just so you know, episode 19 review is still in draft. i don’t want to promise much but i will try my best to finish all the 24 episodes.
      you haven’t seen an episode, but how do you know about this drama? did you read the novel?

      another question, where are you from exactly Rosi?

      Corazon Salvaje 1998? tell me more about it. i googled it, and it tells me that few telenovelas have been made from this novel..

  2. Hola mi dulce Izzie !!

    All these years I thought my sis is the only one who’s perfected the art of drooling – until YOU came along. Yaaa nose bleeds…. she’s done that. I also believe she’s the only one ever stolen an oxygen tank, until it’s confirmed you’ve got one in your home, too! Haha. You sure are nuts like us!

    Engkau betul punya JAHAT not to continue writings of Nora Elena!! This claim of 19 being in drafts & all that don’t work girl! Word harder!! You know aku dah suka looooonnnng traffic jams because that’s the only time I can google like mad whatever thing I can find of this story. And your reviews are best of all!! Addicted to it!! Tak kasihan engkau aku dah tunggu macam nak setengah gila!! It’s true I read the book and loved it so much. It’s as great as any of my specially selected & kept for heirloom 1,287 collection of Mills & Boon romances, but for the fact that it’s Malay the suci-ness & asli-ness made it even sweeter, haunting. I’ve NEVER thought of pure love in the Malay sense until I read the book. To be honest I don’t often watch dramas much because as you know kalau dah kena ketuk telenovelas (most romantic stories in the world!!) nothing else beats as close, NOTHING good enough, even the most lauded Hollywood movies – only of course, Twilight. I was first in the running after Edward Cullen long before you came along, I only let Bella Swan in because I think she’s a pathetic heroine who needs help, and since I can’t be in Seattle Forks, I kasi Edward to her! Twilight I watched 40 times, maybe 70, and New Moon – dah jangan cakap!! Entire script in my head!

    I happened on the NE trailer while watching Spanish movies (more on that later!). Despite its mediocre title (Kasih Yang Suci), the plot is powerful and deep and strange – it kinds of rip your guts out (my guts out) and I guess you won’t know what love is unless you are in Seth’s shoes. We always hope for love but not many can get what they truly want, and to have FATE roll in front of you that way….

    All I could find are bits on youtube, and what’s seen of Seth’s & Nora’s pain are as is in the book, especially Seth’s. All that jengok2 tengok orang punya tunang, so near yet so far ….. Anak Pak Aziz is really something isn’t he? As Seth? And the NORA they choose – she’s really pretty. It’s a great and unusual love story. Their chemistry is so beautiful! Darling Izzie, please continue writing!! I don’t have TV3 only English cable channels & Apple TV so no way will I ever get to see Nora Elena in entirety. The movie downloads don’t seem to work at all keeps clogging off. Hopefully one day this entire DVD I can get off Amazon or something. Then sis & I will do the gigit bantal bit like you, and jangan masak/makan satu hari tengok TV. Possibility of having many days watching over and over sampai puas (if ever).

    Girl! I’m from Singapore! Where else did you think I’m from? Just because I can speak Spanish? Aku agak engkau pun boleh speak Korean from that buah hati you posted photo of some reviews ago. When you get crazy over anybody the guy’s language is easily picked up as if you don’t know….

    Actually you’re the first Malaysian person I’m writing to, and know of. I’m pleased to know you! Because of Nora Elena. You must admit NE is a cut above the rest in production, quality & story – and the characters made it so. It is elegant & beautiful and I just love it like mad!! The other story I like is Ombak Rindu (I suspect it’s because of anak Pak Aziz lagi). You noticed also the soundtracks for both this movies is also nangis punya, inilah yang aku suka.

    Because of the telenovellas my chums are Spanish, Romanian, also from Peru, Australia, France, Kuwait, Mexico, Netherlands. Sorry that’s why I haven’t made Malaysian friends yet, now that I found you a Malaysian who’s also telenovellas crazed, that’s different! We have met in the different countries (they’ve also been here), like an international summit, complete with carrying a red rose for identification, haha. But in France we went to Disneyland, semua orang tunggu bawah Mickey Mouse poster, in Australia Coff’s Harbour we waited at the cliffs of Sawtell Beach, a 180 degrees view of beautiful ocean where in November last year whales pass that way to cooler waters. Kalau lah romantic people, everything must be done in a grandiose setting, right? In Romania we went to Castle Bran, the original haunted castle where they made the movie “Count Dracula” with Keanu Reeves (!!!!!!) & Gary Oldman. I believe I’m the only one in Singapore who’s got complete episodes DVDs for Corazon Salvaje, La Mentira, La Pearla Negra, Amor Real, Tu O Nadie, etc. (Got about 45 telenovellas if you want them no problem) Aku dah gilakan Antonio Lombardo of Tu O Nadie dah bertahun2, very sedih tau tak dapat dia, macam Seth he’s married to Nora, Antonio is married to Raquel his very beautiful wife in that story….. Sniff. You forever wanting to be sofa lah, blanket lah, arghhhhh I can very well understand your position.

    Okay you haven’t seen Corazon Salvaje, right? Here’s a bit video, when these two people Juan & Monica are forced to get married (like NE, to save maruah keluarga), and she, you know lah – virgin kan, tak tahu nak buat apa2. Because you like so much Nora Elena Cameron Highlands Episode 16, so I decided to show you another wedding night lah, the kind that’s happening…… errrr, are you sure the part where Nora pulled Seth’s hand to the bed never happened? The Assalamualaikum & her response bit sounds very real…. Darnn!!! Ini lah kalau tak dapat tengok the real movie!! You fed me anything & I believed it!! OK, CS – I’ve translated for you the dialogue line by line, ok? From the part Meche the maid is folding the clothes, Monica asks if Juan is still with the guests, Meche says only with Segundo (Juan is rich, captain of his own ship, Segundo is Juan’s sidekick, like Eid was to Seth until he kicked himself out). This story is lovely!! But don’t watch the remake they did in 2005, the acting is crap! The hero punya muscles too besar-besar sampai macam sikit retarded. This 1998 version is the best love story in the world!

    Noche de la bodas (Night of wedding or wedding night. Noche=Night, Bodas=Wedding)

    Juan comes in, closes the door. Monica’s about to have a heart attack from the fear!! Haha. Walauu!! Her corset so tight, all that heavy breathing half the boobs about to spill out….

    Juan sneaks round behind her, she looks down and puts her hands to her chest.
    J: I was talking to Segundo. He’s asking what I want to do now. I’m thinking to get into business. What do you think??
    M: (trembling). .NNNNNo not sure….
    J: (that sneaky smirk, walks away taking off his jacket) What do you think of the festivities?
    M: (still fearful) Well…
    J: Or you preferred something more (he walks back to look round her from the bedpost) showy?
    M: Noooooo.
    J: You seem scared – are you scared?
    M: Yes.
    J: Of whatttt??
    M: It’s that, it’s just that – I know nothing of all THIS…. (she still can’t get herself to look at him directly in the eyes, too scared shit, I guess)
    J: Me neither (yeah, right, Juan).
    Monica looks at him like saying “SAY WHATTTT!”
    J: I meant, this is the first time for me too – being married.
    Juan gets closer, stands in front of her chest to chest, takes her hand gently.
    J: Don’t be afraid (kisses her hand softly). Or are you bothered that I’m so close?
    (Juan starts moving towards her ear – Seth ada buat ini tak?)
    M: No.
    (Juan kisses her cheek/ear softly then looks at her face, searching her reaction)
    J: You like that? (She nods. Juan grabs her chin and caresses her lips and ….. plants a quick kiss there, then another). Whatever you know before, or heard them said (he kisses her now, they both stare at each other – actually Izzie all these precise descriptions are for you – reference check what part which sentence he’s talking) but this can be as beautiful as you want. (She shuts her eyes and gives in, nodding).
    J: (pulling the strap of her gown, touching her skin) You’re so soft (hand on waist), tender…. I want you to forget everything in the past, and in this moment embrace a new life for us….

    What else can I say? First the necking, then the moon going by, palm trees swinging…. Enough!!

    Izzie!! My present! Nora Elena episodes!!!!

    Seriously, aren’t there any non-problem downloads I can watch this movie? Help!!

    Besos!!
    Rosi!
