Talking Shop...

So at last, the imaginary has come into being; months of desire has come to fruition and thus, a blog to call my own, is born.

So, Talking Shop...
What does it mean?

I'll tell you friends.

For months I've entertained the idea of setting up my own blog. You know, for those days when you just feel like talking, but a willing audience is scarce (or hiding). Or maybe you do find some but you cant seem to be able to captivate them long enough with your spiel to get past the Mukaddimah and into the 1st Chapter of your rant.

"That Hezry, all he does is talk shop man..."

I don't actually, but you know, imaginary dialogs pop up in my head on a whim.

It's not like I asked for it.

Talking shop; www.usingenglish.com says:
If you talk shop, you talk about work matters, especially if you do this outside work.

We all do it man, we do it because it's our nature. It's been hard-coded into our genes; we talk about the things that affects us, the things that are in & around us. Things that are us.

Technically I'm not a 9 to 5'er, I don't contribute to the labour pool & I don't punch-out and head to the nearest Karaoke bar or Redbox.

Like this bloke right here.

I'm just a student. That being said, I'll tend to talk about my day at 'work'; and since I'm living abroad I don't actually really come home, because 'home' is a 5-hour plane ride & 3 buffalo-cart rides away.

My 'work' spills into my life.

So if it's fine with you, we'll talk about more than how many times Yeshwant (King of all Pharmacology lecturers) nodded his head in class today (And you thought only football players have signature moves?).

So feel free to contribute, comment, and critique.

Because I have a dream.

We Malaysians (yes you Malaysia!) do not read enough. We do not speak-up when it's needed.

But don't get me wrong, we are a nation chock full of critiques & arm-chair politicians. Any random kopitiam will provide you with a selection that puts the Pasar Borong to shame (our gossip-mongers outnumbers the fish-mongers).

We as a nation do not channel our thoughts in a proper way, we talk among ourselves too much & dont bring it up to the level of a general consensus. Maybe that's why some of the things that has happened in our country have managed to evade persecution, no matter how great its moral-bending properties were.

But I'm getting ahead of myself.



Well, with all that's been said & done,

Let's talk shop.

Hello & welcome, from me to you.

Talking Shop:
If you talk shop, you talk about work matters, especially if you do this outside work.

But anything goes really.

Hope it's as pleasing on your eyes as it was for me typing it out.

Thank you & enjoy.
