  3. Saya tertarik dgn ayat ni -” Bahasa lirik yang ditranskripsi mempunyai rona yang bervariasi; sarat dengan maknawi tapi tak usai dek puisi. Bahasa cinta pertama yang saya damba sentiasa.”

    Shahrill memang berbakat menjadi penulis!

  6. Single terbaru Siti Nurhaliza; gubahan Fauzi Marzuki & lirik Hairul Anuar Harun

    Tulus berkembang suci bunga
    Harum cinta kuntum syurga
    Burung berbisik tanpa dusta
    Merisik manja asyik fana

    Dikala malam tidurkan senja
    Bintang menjahit baju lena
    Sehingga fajar hingga purnama
    Kau masih setia

    Danau terbentang sejujurnya
    Tenang jiwa hilang lara
    Saat ku jejaki taman bunga
    Benar indah amat indah

    Dikala luka terlalu dalam
    Sungguhpun masih tak terpadam
    Hingga terkadang aku berdendam
    Kau tetap setia

    Walau jauh berlari
    Walau jenuh ku mencari
    Tetap sungguh kau kemari
    Tanpa jemu dan benci

    Biar ku telan tangismu
    Biar ku simpan resahmu
    Meski kau bukan milikku
    Teguhkan dihatiku

    Percayalah.. Kau Inderaloka..
    Kan ku susuri
    Bahagia mu teman di taman ini..

  7. 1. Claimed-listening-to-Siti-is-no class-but-they-themselves-are-not-proficient-in-English-BUT-to-boast-of-listening-only-English-songs!
    –> a sharp stab straight to the heart! pedih2…..

    2. Those who think they are so modern and into western music. Siti is so Melayu. Not us. Hergh, puh-leeze!~
    –> who is ‘us’?

    As for some of the translation of the song title, I think is not correctly done but I’m not expert myself. Maybe somebody else could offer a different opinion.
    1. “Seloka Budi” (The Benevolent Hymn)–> a hymn is ‘a song or ode in praise or honor of God, a deity, a nation, etc’ and seloka is a kind of poetry that may contain advice, humour etc so the right translation should be ‘The Kindness Poetry’?
    2. “Bulan Yang Mesra” (The Friendly Moon)–> reminds me of the next Twilight’s sequel, New Moon…ah!
    3. “Senyum Minang Manis” (Sweet Betrothal Smile)–> i think ‘Minang’ refer to suku kaum Minang also known as Minangkabau and not as in ‘me-minang’ so I guess the use of bethrothal is incorrect. So just use ‘Sweet Minang Smile’ or ‘Minang’s Sweet Smile’?
    4. “Cinta Ini” ( This Love)–> Maroon 5 cover version? LOL!
    5. “Di Taman Teman” (In The Heaven of Friend) –>why is ‘taman’ translated to heaven plak? It should be ‘In the Garden of Friend’s’

    Sekianlah kelas bahasa Inggeris hari ini. Sila pastikan anda siapkan kerja rumah dan hantar pada minggu hadapan…..

  8. Hola everyone! Sorry for the late reply. Back in Jitra and shockingly, Jitra has no Maxis Broadband 3 G coverage; so I’m relying on the slow GPRS. I’m thinking of switching to Celcom’s or Streamyx! Shame on Maxis!!! Urgh! Maxis, I’m sorry; but you’re sux big tyme! (Well, I’m using it though, rite? Heheh)

    Lentera Timur = Thanks and thanks too for the lyrics. It’s a beautiful composition of lyrics.🙂

    Myazara = oh ye ke fan club ct? wah, ni memang jenis yg taksub dgn ct ke..atau minat?hehe

    meera_cute = yeah, I know. People always associcate Siti Nurhaliza’s fan with typicality of non English-practitioner. It happens.

    Nahar Iskandar = eleh..ntah2x ko ada semua lagu ct dlm laptop/PC ko…kekeke

    Si Baju Hijau = terima kasih. Kata-kata tu saya buta secara spontan. Bahasa melayu ni senang sket nak rungkai. Idea dtg berjela dalam sesaat..Alhamdulillah🙂

    Mariposa = really? LOL; u were just like my sister! She was a SGGS too; for record. So crazy over them and yeah, I was forced to listen to some of the songs; etc those AWAS days. KRU was/is one of a kind. I have respect for them!😛

    nzard = tu diaa..rajin bebenor wat analitikal..bakal PTD la katakan (insya Allah hehe..aku mcm rs strong feeling ang bleh naik PTD). Anyway for your information, the songs titles are just loosely translated. I thought if they were to be LITERALLY translated, they doesn’t sound catchy/commercial enuff e.g. “Di Taman Teman” – (In The Garden Of Friend)? HHehe..Si, saja boh “Heaven” so it sounds more poetry. Same goes with ‘Hymn” / Poetry for “Seloka Budi”.. or maybe I should put it as “The Benevolent Sonnet”?🙂

    And as for “Sweet Betrothal Smile”, the lyrics is actually about emotion of a couple to be wedded; the anxiety, the excitement; so I believe “Minang” in here DOES refers to “betrothal” and not the ethnicity “minang.”

    And lastly, the US in “Those who think they are so modern and into western music. Siti is so Melayu. Not us. Hergh, puh-leeze!~” refer to some acquaintances I’ve met all throughout my life (tu diaa..ensemble of perspectives ni). I mean, it’s totally DISGUSTING to say “I DON’T LISTEN TO THIS BECAUSE IT’S SO MELAYU”… What the F*ck? Go change ur ID Card then if you are not proud of your race! Stupid pigs, I say. Pity them, no sense of embracing their root. Sheesh.

  9. kecekapan = tu diaaa..Panglima Kecekapan Ihsan dah mai dahh kkeke. Slamat dtg ke WordPress.. tapi cam boring sbb takleh layout music. Aku bengang tu ja ngan WordPress. Dalam FAQs tu, ketegaq betoi xnak boh musik. Nak boh komplikated plak. Argh!~😛

  10. Minang–> oic….maklumla x look up the lyric first myself.=)
    Streamyx–> even worse than maxis and celcom i think in the league of speed. as for celcom and maxis broadband tuh mmg la lg laju but the limitation is not all location/state yg dpt broadband connection tuh.WiMax xde ke kt jitra tuh? mayb kt maktab nnt ada wireless kot?

  11. Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza mengenakan tudung tetapi lebih kepada pemakaian selendang.

    Biarlah dia nak pakai mcm mana pun, dia dgn Tuhan kan??? Yang korang bz body apersal????

  12. ‘Datin Seri Hajjah Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza mengenakan tudung tetapi lebih kepada selendang.’

    Yang korang ni bz body apersal????? Hal dia dengan Tuhan la! Yg penting Lentera Timur tetap best!

  13. banyaknya yg komen pasal siti nurhaliza ni hehee. owh, Zara sebenarnya walopon minat gilerr kat ct tapi sokong gak ape Leftenan cakap tue..naperlah siti mcm tak pakai tudung? Baik tkyah buat pengumuman nak pakai tudung…jambul kepala dah stail mak datin yg x ikhlas tutup. Yerlah hal dia ngan Tuhan dan dia ‘taknak dipaksa’, tapi kita sbgai orang Islam takkan nak dicucuk hidung tak menegur kan????

    Apa2pun, siti mmg best lah..jgn marah kak ct..(kalau ada spy la SNP Production kan…hehe)

  14. Hats off to u for standing firm in what u believe in. No matter how heavy the flak or artillery (aka criticisms that u might get hit with). I personally feel that it is not the singer/person or the songs that is getting all the bad vibes with most people nowadays. If this singer/genre of songs rocks your world…then so be it….no issue there.

    But, the criticisms aimed at her is mostly because of the attitude developed as a result of her radical fan followings…NOT just THE language issue solely. I’m sure most ‘westernized’ people (as u wld say) still can’t erase the “Lupakan isu Bahasa Inggeris” quote OR the “Thank you for choicing me” quote uttered at the Nickelodeon Choice award some time ago….this is just ONE of the issues.

    For the record, wannabe westerners (ehm..ehm..ehm) listen to malay-sounding songs too. For eg, I currently listen (and lving it) to Butterfingers’ “Kembali” album…..a superb Malay-infused meets psychedelic-rock album…real top notch album! So, its NOT the ‘too Malay-sounding’ issue here…its the attitude…that defines everything.

    heheh…cukup lah tu..

    -hanya pendapat saya yg berharga 2 sen-

  15. Leftenan Muda & Myazara = saya sebenarnya juga kurang berkenan cara ct mengenakan tudung. Patutnya pakailah secara penuh, kan?

    The Rebel = hahaha, what can I say? You’ve tailored your every sentences in such delicate diplomatic way that I don’t have the intention of being acidic-tongue to you hahaha~ yeah you are rite; so be it if she rocks my world (erk??LOL doesnt sound so rite). Hhee so I guess you are one of the “Westerner Wannabes” representative heh?😛
